I was going through my blog posts' "Draft" folder when I saw this Iya (my niece) story that I forgot to publish. This happened when she was 5 years old.
One day, I picked her from school and when we reached their house, her Nanny (who was then cooking lunch for the household) opened the gate and got her from the car.
Iya: Ate, hindi ka pa naliligooo!!!Amoy kamatis kaaa (she actually meant "ginisa"). . . . and after a split second, she said. . .
I guess she cares for her SO MUCH that she doesn't want to offend her . . . or could it be that she just really loves the smell of the kitchen?!! Haha!
