AN IMAGE OF PUNYAGI

Daaaahhhh!! Daahhhh!!!

Narinig ko sa may gate. I asked my wife what is it. Tindero raw ng isda.

I went out at look at his paninda. Naglulundagan pang tilapia, me bangus, galunggong at hasa hasa.

Tinanong ko kung magkano, he replied with a price na mas mahal ng 5 pesos per kilo sa palengke. Pero with linis pa iyon. Me dala siyang kutsilyo at steel brush panglinis at pangkaliskis ng isda.

Sabi ko “huwag nang tumawad, let’s give kuya the difference.. look, he tries to earn a living, kesa magnakaw o mangholdap…”

“Isa pa, tingnan mo kung gaano siya katyaga, maaga pa lang balagwit na niya ang dalawang timbang isda, lakad at alok sa bahay bahay. Punta ka ng palengke gagastos ka sa pamasahe or sa gasoline.”

These kind of people no matter how small they are, contributes in running the economy.

Pabiro kong sinabihan si kuya nung paalis na.. “apply ka sa amin, kita ko na magiging magaling kang ahente.. tatalunin mo ang madadaldal at mayayabang na ibang lahi sa aming kompanya..”

Ngumiti siyang sumagot, “okay na ako ng ganito Sir.”

“I like the simple life, the way it used to be. We left our doors wide open, we didn’t need no key. I been around the world, seen all there is to see. I’d trade all those memories for one more day how it used to be. I like the simple life.” – Lynyrd Skynyrd
