It's 6:30 in the evening. I'm in my room waiting for supper. I'm hungry, but we're waiting for my dad. My mom is in the kitchen. Kiko is taking a shower. He is singing.
We're going to eat chicken adobo and salmon sinigang. Do I like chicken adobo? Of course I do. I like it a lot. But I don't like pinakbet. My mom says I need to eat vegetables. She's right. I agree.
Yesterday we ate at a restaurant. There were a lot of people, but nobody was smoking. We sat at a table near a window. I ate a lot of vegetables. Mom had a salad. Dad had the crispy pata. Kiko ordered beef bistig. We were full.
We talked about our vacation. We will go on vacation to Baguio. Kiko has never been to Baguio. I don't want to go to Baguio, but that's where we will go for vacation.
