Balitang Tulay sa Morong (Cont.)

15 Aug

The town is beautiful on rainy days. No flood. Clean air and clean streets. Rain contributes to traffic jam, but who cares people are carefree and happy. Ahhh, My Morong someone said is truly OUR Morong. “Taga dito po ba kayo?” asked one trike operator. I said, “Aba, hindi ka tiga Morong kasi may punto ka.” Remember we never use “d” when we talk. Otherwise masisiste ka – “Napasma yata dila natin ah.” It does not matter to me, magalang naman ang tawo at nangingino-po. After paying him P10 (huo hindi na P7 ang bayar sa trike) I said, “Salamat at tinutulungan ninyo ang mga tiga Morong na talaga”. Nakakikiwa lamang na tatanungin ka ng iang rayuhan na di tiga Morong. Para bagang nawala na ang iyong kabataan, paniningalang pugar, pagba baskitbol, panganganto, atbpa noong araw. Man, this is MY town! I am part of it no matter what!

Naala-ala ko 2loy ang kwento ni pareng Obet M. na nasa ERA raw sila at tuma ng SanMig ay may isang “ruhat” yata na nakikihanruke sa kanilang huntahan ay hindi maganda rating na sinabi tungkol sa Morong ay binira niya ng, “Man, this is MY town. I was born here and you can _ _ _k yourself and get out of town.” Ewan ko lamang kung totoo word4word but lumitaw ang pag-ibig sa ating bayan. Bira bata…!

The old site of the bsura – talks, issues, negative emails and tsis – is now one good-looking-scenery, elevated beautiful no-smell site with some young trees growing – mataba siempre because of the roots feeding on old basuras from many places. Yes, including Metro Manila. The much-talk-about recycle plant sa may pagliko ay maganda. There is a paved road leading to the place, a nice path for walkers/joggers . . . daters ulit!

The Rizal Provncl capitol is very beautiful. But why is it in Antipolo and not in Morong where the Provncl Hospital is? No need to make issues now – it’s done and the “Y” empire couldn’t move (not the building) to Morong because one of the “Ys” live there. Hmmm?

Early election is in the air, heard from a very confident leader ng isang partido, a jogging partner. JB is running. Wala raw makalaban. Seems like JB is unbeatable. After all, he is like the American insurance commercial – “You are in good hands with Allstate”, or ….with “Ys”.

Sige po, saka na ang ibang magagandang balita sa atin. Mirang tahimik at walang balikbayan. Mura ang ingin! Tatatlo po kami sa tulay at nanunuor ng baha (tskolate water) sa ilog at pirisong naliligo raon. Naka bday suit pa nga ang isa. OK lamang po, basta’t hwag lamang gamiting R&R ang mini-glorieta na pinagkagastahan ng ibang mga tawo at hindi para sa mga piriso.

Syanga pala ang tunsoy na plstic-wrapped sa Morong SM ay P265 mga lima! Sa palingki sa paglabas ay mga P125 ang lima at mahahalo mo pagpili ng mga butityog at sariwa pa.

Hwag lamang kalimutan ang ating Morong.

AC po ito.

Nabanggit ang ilog – ay linis po at gawa ng baha. Naala-ala ko tuloy noong mga bata kami na haplit ng talon sa tulay (iyong lumang tulay natin, ayyy nabisto ang aking idar) at malnaw ang tubig at maganda ang buhangin. Mas lalong maganda ang mga naglalaba sa paraan na “kinakastor” hehehehe.
