Just a Typical Baguio Joke

I just got back from a trip to Baguio and this is what I got. Well, yes, just a typical Baguio Joke.

One day, a guy was walking down Session Road and decided to take a taxi to La Trinidad. He was lucky to get a taxi right away but he wanted to make sure that he knew what he was going to pay for so he asked the driver "Mano ti bayad nu i-drive nak idiay Trinidad?"(how much would I pay if you had to drive me to Trinidad?).

The taxi driver asked him back "maymaysam?" (Are you alone?) to which the man answered back, "apay haan ka nga umay?"(why, are you not going with me?)

This joke really gave me a blast. I could have lots and lots of Baguio jokes..from kiangan bread to painting the town red.

Have you got one?

Ting, meron ako!

There was an Ifugao guy and an American guy camping. They only had one can of sardines between them. The American amazed with the place and he saw the bright moon against the dark sky.

"Look at the moon!" he said.

The Ifugao man interpreted this as "Lukattam mun!" (Open it!) And so he opened the can of sardines.

The American saw this and he said, "No! No! See the moon!"

The Ifugao guy thought he said "Sida mun!" (That's your viand, eat it!)

And so he gobbled up the sardines, leaving none for the now-hungry American.

ehehe... ako meron pangulit pero hindi siya exactly joke, just a play with words. I picked it up from my relatives. Like when they ask, 'Saan ka galing?' (sorry, don't know how to translate), they answer, 'Dyay kabilang bangir.' And when they ask, 'Anya ti sidam?' (What are you eating?) they answer, 'Monggo ken balatong.' hehe...

Funny stuff. I'm sure I'll be back to read more about 'my' Baguio. I grew up there from grade 4 (SLU) up to 2nd year college (still SLU) before we migrated in the early 70s. My dad used to work at BCI and I'm not sure if that's still around. I miss Baguio a whole lot! I can't wait to read more from your blog.

A pastor from nearby province visited Kiangan and there he held a sort of bible study with the folks who gathered in the chapel. In his preach he said “iti rigat iti panagbiag itanga panawen, dumteng to ti aldaw nga amin a tumatayab ket makan to” [because of the way and cost of living nowadays is getting harder and more expensive, day will come that all that flies will be eaten as well]
A folk raised his hand and stood up and said,
“isu aya pastor? Makitan to man galud nu pati aruplano (eroplano) ket ngarngarem?”[is that so pastor? Let’s see then if even the aeroplane you will munch it?]
