The minor fall, the major lift

i love montreal. it’s a real city with real people. so far, lahat ng nakausap ko ay mabait, accomodating at magaling mag french. sayang nga lang at english lang at cebuano ang alam kong language bukod sa tagalog kaya hindi ko sila makausap except to say “merci beaucoup” na parang ilocano pakinggan pag ako ang nagsalita.

mayroon kaming long drive bukas papunta sa customer site. ako ang designated driver kaya mag ingat kayong mga french canadians at may isang pinoy driver na magmamaneho sa kalye ninyo. BWAHAHA.

tapos bukas ng gabi, pagkatapos ng customer visit ay lilipad na ako papuntang toronto. nagkausap na kami ni pareng junnie, ang hari ng memento na based doon. malamang magkita kami para mag late night tsismisan. di ko pa siya nakikita sa buong buhay ko, sana naman ay hindi siya rapist. BWAHAHA ulit.

at oo nga pala, virginia: sa wakas ay nakakain na rin ako ng poutine. sa sobrang sarap ay napamura nga ako: poutine ng ina.

  1. have fun driving sir!!ipakita nyo sa kanila ang galing ng pinoy driver hehehe…..and enjoy your stay there…kainggit naman…
    uhm ano pong uri ng pagkain ang poutine?

  2. Montreal poutine? Follow this link: http://www.montrealpoutine.com/recipes.html. Basically it’s french fries with cheese and gravy. Batjay, you absolutely cannot miss Schwart’s smoked meat. Montreal’s known to have the best smoked meat in the world, and Schwart’s IS the best smoked meat here in Montreal, period. They’ve been around since 1928 and they make this melt in your mouth smoked meat that is out of this world. They’re at 3895 Saint-Laurent Boulevard, just be prepared to stand in line if you want a table. This place is very old and very small, so a take-out would probably be a better idea. Several restaurateurs have offered to build Schwartz’s as franchise operations in cities across North America. The owners have always refused. Hope you get a chance. While you’re at it you may want to pick up a couple of dozen St. Viateur Bagels (263 St. Viateur West). That’s what we’re known for, jazz fest, smoked meat and bagels. You’re too late for the jazz fest, just enjoy the food. Bon appétit!

  3. Mais oui, Montreal est tres belle, bien sur! 🙂

    Balita ko nga eh maganda pati mga tao jan sa Montreal, lalo na daw yung mga Pinay-Canadian na jan lumaki (ahem!) at lalo yung mga nakatira sa bandang Dollard-des-Ormeaux area (ahem uli!) at lalong lalo pa yung mga dating taga-jan na naka-base na ngayon sa Singapore (ahem na naman!)

    O, wag ka nang tumutol!

    Balita? Nakita mo ba si Leonard Cohen? Sa Westmount area sya lagi tumatambay.. nakita ko sya minsan, nung ako ay bata at tanga pa, kaya di ko alam na sya yun, at nung nalaman ko, wala lang sa kin noon.. parang, “so?” Ngayon ko lang napagtanto na isa pala syang alamat, at gustong gusto ko ang mga kanta nya, lalo ang Hallelujah .. mas gusto ko yun kesa sa version ni Brother Mike ng El Shaddai (“Hallelujah, Amen?” … na sasagutin ng mga tao ng “Amen!”)

  4. hi..poutine d mo alam hehe…french fries na my sauce..lam k un kc un plagi ko kain pag tmad luto..at dami sa amin un..anyway try mo, its YUMMY..

  5. Di ka marunong mag-french, e di gamitin mo yung kanta pag me nakilala kang magandang chicks. Voulez-vouz couchier avec moi, ce soir? Sabay kindat at tinging malagkit. Ayus!
