I’m preempting my post of the crab story for my Mellow Yellow Monday entry.

I was driving the other day ‘to have a good time and not to get on time’, if I may borrow a line from Sally, the blue cutie Porsche from the movie ‘Cars’. I purposely did not turn on the car’s air-conditioning as Davao City’s sun did not show up for the past few days and the weather is perfect for sightseeing.

I was a traffic obstruction that day plying 20kph along Dacudao Avenue, where trees shaded the road and leaves paved the way, I hear honking from time to time signaling me to speed up, but who cares until a garbage truck passed me by, after a while I got a feeling of throwing up sniffing the stench space the truck has left, so I was looking for a ‘sari-sari’ (variety) store to buy some candies to relieve me, when I spotted this store … an ‘IMBURNAL’ (culvert) store.

Call it a blatant manifestation of the real Philippine economic situation or a real Filipino ingenuity.

Now that’s one good real model of what rolling store means.

Thank you for reading, see you again for another experience in this side of town.

  19. Tarot Cards can provide useful information when read by a competent reader. I am not familiar with a Game that uses tarot cards and dice though. I will check it out if I see one and get back to you. We have a Barnes and Noble in our city also. Not all tarot readers are scammers that charge for a reading but I would never pay more than $20.00 for a reading and it better not be a three card reading either.
