Tampa, Florida: The Arrival

Posted by darbs on August 30, 2009

The Welcome Sign!

welcome-to-tampa

City of Champions daw ang Tampa which I didn't know. Cool!

We arrived Tampla safely. Near the LAKE, AGAIN. Got the time to thank to the POWER OUT HERE! Thanking for the safe journey. Why not? It feels good, you know…and by the way, please don’t tell me what to pray. It is personal.

photo opsThat evening we had dinner with our friends… salmon, humba, ug mixed veggies… and when one of the Fil-Am neighbors heard na may visitors galing NY, nagdala na rin sila ng kanilang pagkain (miswa with ligo na sardinas) at salo salo na.

We had dinner.

Kinawboy kung sa Pinoy pa.

And Tilapia too...naa sab.

And tilapia . . .

Then sa dessert ning atong pagtoo nia usap sa PAKWANG WALAY LISO!

Usap sab ning seedless nga pakwan

seedless nga pakwan, mao ang nauso

In the morning, nag early walk around the corner and captured the scenery of the place ng pwends.

Friend's houses near the lake, wow!

Friends' houses near the lake, wow!

Sa kabilang neighbor is under beautification. Magtanim ng DAMO ay di biro. Umaga pa sila ay nakayuko.

Senyores! Sir! Mga Bossing! Los Amigos! Mga Padres! can I have your  litraks please!

Senyor paki taas ng itak

Senyor paki taas ng itak

Itinaas naman. “Thank you very much senyor!”

Dayon talikod si manoy

Dayon talikod si manoy, dala ang pinuti.

“What about me?” sabi pa sa nakapula. You too amo manager! Just say, “Hi!” then taas ang kamay.  Naminaw pud baya.

What about me?

Nag Hi! nga si senyor. Then they went back to work. THANK YOU SENYORES!

These workers were here around 7:30 A.M.

Kayong mga trabahante… Kayong nagpa ganda ng bahay ng iba. TRABAHO LANG! WALANG PERSONALAN! May mga papel yan sila. May medical insurance yan sila. UNIONIZED! At hindi MINIMUM WAGE ANG TINATANGGAP. How much? IT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!

Pagkatapos ng litraks back to work na sila. Thank you guys!

Pagkatapos ng litraks back to work na sila. Thank you guys!
