5 pesos karinderya rice + de lata = dinner

Posted on
  1. Check
    You’ve worn a dress to class not to be fancy
    Check
    But because nasa laundry lahat ng damit mo.
    Check
    Speaking of damit, sinusulatan mo sila ng pangalan mo para hindi mawala
    Check
    You’d pick karinderya food over fast food any day
    Check
    Because you miss your mom’s cooking
    Check
    But also because ‘yung lang kaya ng budget mo
    Check
    Tsaka dun lang may TV para makanood ka ng favorite teleserye mo
    Check
    And TBH na-realize mong nakakasawa rin pala ang fast food
    Check
    You consider instant cup noodles as dinner
    Check
    And siomai as ulam
    Check
    AND PANCIT CANTON AS LIFE
    Check
    And Red Horse beer as water
    Check
    5 pesos rice from karinderya + de lata = BUSOG
    Check
    You’ve gone to class with a hangover
    Check
    And with no ligo
    Check
    And sometimes that’s by choice
    Check
    Because TBH you don’t have time for the long queue at the bathroom
    Check
    But most of the time it’s because walang tubig
    Check
    Or naunahan ka ng roommate mo sa CR
    Check
    You can’t remember the last time you had a proper breakfast
    Check
    And the last time you changed your sheets
    Check
    But you can remember the last time you had coffee
    Check
    Or Cobra energy drink
    Check
    And that was 15 minutes ago
    Check
    You also can’t remember the last time you had a full 8-hour sleep
    Check
    But you can remember the last time you got drunk
    Check
    And that was last night
    Check
    You appreciate your nanay more than ever
    Check
    Because you had to wash and iron your own clothes
    Check
    Which you will make sampay inside you room
    Check
    That’s why your clothes smell like they weren’t washed in the first place
    Check
    And you had to budget your own money to last until Friday
    Check
    You’ve tried cooking in your dorm
    Check
    Pero nasunog lang
    Check
    Lahat ng ulam mo niluluto mo sa rice cooker
    Check
    Minsan feeling mo OFW ka
    Check
    Lalo pa ‘pag na-mi-miss mo family mo
    Check
    Pero ang totoo makikita mo rin naman sila sa weekend
    Check
    OA ka lang talaga
    Check
    And when you get back to the dorm, kumpleto na naman supply mo ng cup noodles
    Check
    And ready ka na ulit for another week of eating trash and getting drunk as paaaak!
