I Never Leave Home Without It

Mapa! Ito ang isang bagay na lagi kong dala saan man ako mapunta. Maski na sa Pilipinas ako, lagi akong may mapa. Kung tutuusin, mas mahirap maghanap ng kalye at direksyon sa Pilipinas dahil kadalasan ay nawawala o luma o sadyang walang pangalan ang mga kalye. Kapag nagtanong ka naman, ang ibibigay sa iyong direksyon ay "doon" at "dyan" at ewan na lamang kung mahahanap mo ang iyong pupuntahan. Nakakatawa, ngunit ang totoo ay mas madalas akong mawala sa bayan natin kaysa sa ibang bansa. Isa pang bahagi ko ay ang sombrero at malambot na sapatos. Sombrero para sa hindi mahuhulaan at pabago-bagong panahon at malambot na sapatos para sa mabilis at magaang paglalakad. Kagaya ng buhay kung saan tayo ay lagi din naglalakbay, ang pagkakaroon ng tamang plano at paghahanda ay nakakatulong sa pagsapit natin sa ating nais patunguhan. Ang larawan nga pala sa itaas ay kuha sa isang tagong sulok ng Louvre, sa Paris.

A map! I never leave home without it. Even in the Philippines, I always have a map with me. It is more difficult to find directions at home, because more often than not, streets either have old names, or worse, they have no names. If you ask for directions, a common response will be "there" or "somewhere here" and only God knows how that will help you. It is amusing, but yes, it is true: I often get lost at home than in any other place in the world. Other vital parts of me are a hat, for the unpredictable weather, and soft shoes, which makes walking a pleasure. As in life which is also a journey, having a good plan helps in reaching the destination. The photo above was taken in one obscure corner of the Louvre, in Paris.

Une carte ! Je ne pars à la maison jamais sans elle. Même dans les Philippines, j'ai toujours une carte avec moi. Il est plus difficile de trouver des directions à la maison, parce que le plus souvent, les rues ou ont de vieux noms, ou plus mauvais, elles n'ont aucun nom. Si vous demandez des directions, une réponse commune sera « là » ou « quelque part ici » et seulement Dieu sait cela vous aidera. Elle est d'une manière amusante, mais oui, il est vrai : J'obtiens souvent perdu à la maison que dans n'importe quel autre endroit dans le monde. D'autres parties essentielles de moi sont un chapeau, pour le temps imprévisible, et les chaussures molles, qui fait la marche un plaisir. Comme dans la vie qui est également un voyage, avoir un bon plan aide en atteignant la destination. La photo ci-dessus a été rentrée un coin obscur du Louvre, à Paris.
