kasabay ko everyday mag exercise ang mga muslim womem joggers ng singapore. they are a sight to behold – running women in long flowing robes, tudong (or muslim headscarves) and sneakers. how do they look? imagine mo na lang si virgin mary na naka nike rubber shoes, tumatakbong mabilis sa kalsada. o, na-imagine mo na? yan ang hitsura nila.
nung nag jogging ako kagabi, all i could ever think of was the first time akong nakapanood ng colored tv. in particular, yung first time kong makita si cookie monster sa colored tv. blue pala siya – bwahaha. tuwang tuwa ako. growing up in the 70’s was cool. it was the time of the transition from black and white to colored. it was like the “wizard of oz” scene where dorothy steps out of that kansas door into munchkin land. while thinking of this colored tv thingy, naisip ko rin na masarap ang singkamas na may toppings na asin at bagoong na alamang. don’t ask me why i juggle 2 incongruent things in my mind while jogging. wala naman akong control sa kung anong pumapasok sa ulo ko pag ako’y idle.
