Flyover. Swimunder.

Meron akong kasamahan sa trabaho na iba ang paguugali at way of life kesa sa kanyang mga kalahi. He is young, di pa masyadong eksperiensiyado sa trabaho, pero naroon ang kanyang drive na matuto at mag excel sa kanyang work.

Nasabi kong iba ang kanyang ugali at gawi dahil honest siya, soft spoken, hindi magirgir (masalita) at higit sa lahat ay malinis sa katawan di katulad ng kanyang kalahi. Inaamin niya kapag di niya alam at tinatanggap niya kapag siya ay nagkakamali.

Isang araw kami ay nanggaling kami sa office ng Saudi Electricity Company at habang siya ay nagdadrive ay tinanong niya sa akin kung ano ang tawag sa kalyeng pataas o elevated.

Sagot ko ay flyover ang tawag doon.

Ahh, It is flyover because it is going up like flying and it is over us, that is why it is called “flyover”, you fly over.

Yes kako.

So, how do you call a road that is going down under the another road the opposite of flyover.

I told him, simple. Opposite of fly is swim, and opposite of over is under.

Ahh, I know. Sabi niya. It is called “swim under,” right?

Right. Sabi ko.
