For several days in November last year, while drinking tropical juice under a kiosk, and lounging on a chair, this vista was my live streaming TV screen, and the sailboats, moving along the slowness of the tide, the characters in an all -about- nature TV show. I was not surprised that just recently, Boracay was voted as among the best islands and beaches in the world.
SCENE 1 (Alex trying to show me and Andrea some asanas in yoga)
Alex: Tita Eva, this is the ‘tree pose’ in yoga. This is a very dangerous pose because some people might cut me and turn me into paper.
Andrea: Yeah, they’re gonna turn you into toilet paper!
SCENE 2 (Alex and Andrea trying to get to know me better)
Andrea: How old are you Tita Eva?
Tita Eva: How old do you think I am?
Andrea: Would you be 54?
Tita Eva: I don’t like your answer. No beach treat for you.
Andrea: Oh no! But I thought I saw some white hair!
Alex: Yeah, the white hair that the hair color failed to cover.
Tita Eva: Aaaargh! Take these kids back to Canada!
