E SINO PA BA ANG MAGPAPAHULUGAN?

Naglalakad ako sa bayan kanina para mamili ng bintana (window shopping) at dahil Ramadan, wala pang gaanong tao. Normally, naglalabasan ang mga ito ng mga past 9PM na kapag ganitong panahon.

Naisipan kong pasyalan ang isa kong kaibigang Indian na siyang bantay sa isang Electronics Shop. Gusto ko bumili ng External HDD dahil puno na ang gamit ko, a 2009 – 120Gb pa.

Papunta sa kanyang shop, I was approached by a Filipino who offered me laptop.

“Kabayan, Sir. Laptop kayo riyan. Meron kami kahit anong brand. 6 months to pay. Walang down payment. ” Whooa. Hulugang laptop ha.  I politely declined and told him I already have one.

Pagtapat ko sa kasunod na tindahan, another Filipino stopped me. “Sir, laptop ba hanap ninyo? Dito sa amin, any brand. Hulugan 6 months. Walang down payment”

Pumasok ako sa shop just for curiousity at nakita ko na kompleto nga sila. At me mga pinoy na kumukuha ng hulugang laptop. The term is good. I compared the price ng 6 months na hulog sa kanila from the price in the mall or electronic outlets, ay mga 50 riyals lang ang difference. Which is very good since di ka huhugot agad ng malaking cash.

Both shops ang pinaka head ay Indians, or Bumbay in pinoy term.

That explains the “hulugan”.

This time nga lang, Pinoy ang nagaahente.

To win you. I call that a bargain. The best I ever had. The best I ever had.” – The Who
