A Kulasa and being on (Swiss) time

I cannot remember being "that late" besides I am a Kulasa and being on the dot was instilled in me. Well, there were times that due to unforseen circumstances I would be 5-10 mins late but that was it. So it was during my first two years of living here that I have really learned the importance of Swiss time. That thanks to my Mama.

My mother would leave me when I didn't arrive on time. I would be upset and could not fathom the idea of being left like that. So I've learned to be on the dot(again) every time I have to see her. The idea of being late and being left behind stresses me to the max esp. if it is Mama.

Now that I have two gals an extra time allowance has to be given so as not to be late. Besides,the buses have their stop and schedule so there are no more excuses. All I have to do is just be on time!

Your post reminded me of my best friend back in high school because she's always late, even on our graduation day she was still late. haha! Now she is a prof at DLSU so I wonder if she is on time now haha.

hi ms. mayet. i find it funny though because we have a family friend here, they are swiss, and yet they are always late! hahahaha! maybe they have become filipinos in a way! but they're very nice people.

I like your clock dear. When i have an appointment, I'm mostly on time. But there are uncontrollable instances that makes you come late and i think this is an excusable thing :)

Sorry I don't get what a Kulasa is in Filipino...

Ria said...

I think your mom and I share the same view on being on time. My husband loves to dilly-dally and I would literally drive off and leave him. I just don't want to stress myself by missing an appointment or showing late for something or even being stuck on a traffic. All those scenarios won't be good for my high-blood ;)
