One day, I saw this lady juggling with her things on the way to the building I was in. I was fascinated with her kikay get-up so I discreetly stared at her. Then she tripped.
Kikay Lady: (long A and rolling R sounds) Arr-ay... (then looks around). I mean, OUCH pala.
We just let her pass but the moment she's out of earshot, those who heard her burst out giggling.
Geez. Why bother correcting yourself to the word's English counterpart when you've already said it in Filipino? I don't see the point, or any point for that matter. Really.
