A/N:

Sinulat ko itong habang naghihintay sa airport kanina pa pero ang bagal ng internet! Nasa Pinas na nga ako!

--

People Watching. Ito yung palagi kong ginagawa sa bawat lugar na mapuntahan ko. Ang panoorin ang mga tao at magpaka slight Marites. (couldn't be helped)

At dahil nagkamali ng u-turn yung pinsan ko na susundo sa akin, mas natagalan yung pagpeople watch ko.

Sobrang nakakatuwa ang scene sa airport. Ang nostalgic ng feeling dahil after 2.5 years, nasa Pinas ako for a short trip. Very nice!

Comparatively, ang dami talaga ganap sa arrival area dito sa Pinas vs. Singapore and other airports na napuntahan ko. Ang daming ganap! Nakakatuwa.

Meron isa na galing Dubai na sinundo ng isang pamilya (as in isang van) kasama ang anak na wala pa yatang 3 years old, na looking confused sa kung anong nangyayari. Mangiyak-ngiyak syang binuhat ng nanay nya, nakakaluha yung scene na yun, it pulled my heartstrings.

Yung isa naman na katabi ko sa kanan, sobrang kulit! Ilang beses na nya tinanong "Padating na ba?" Badtrip na yung kasama nya to the point na hindi na sya sinasagot. Siguro sabik na sabik na sya makauwi.

May nag-aaway pa sa likuran ko kasi bakit daw ba mali yung nabigay na time of arrival, "Ang tanga mo naman, oras lang nagkamali pa." Mu...

It hits different lang kapag Pinas arrival area. Iโ€™ve been into other arrival areas naman and itโ€™s just another transit feels.

I usually do that kapag nasa cafe ako. Madalas pinipili ko na spot is yung nasa corner paharap sa pinto. Not my intention na mag marites talaga while sipping coffee pero napapasulyap din talaga ako sa mga tao.
Nakakatuwa. Iba ibang ganap, iba ibang tao. May nag aantay ng jowa,may parang nag aantay ng ka EB pero parang na indian na. May nag "group study"ย ย na pinagsasaluhan ang iisang slice ng cheesecake tapos tatambay ng tatlong oras para sa libreng wifi. May titong tito mag kape ( tasa ng kape +dyaryo) , may grupo ng mga open minded na nag didiscuss kung paano pa makakahanap ng pwede ma recruit. Minsan nakaka kaba din pag may isang myembro nila na mapapasulyap sa akin. Parang ako ang aalukin ng gluta soap at napkin na pwede ibabad sa galon ng tubig ๐Ÿคฃ

Masaya mag marites. Di na sayang yung ilang oras na stay sa loob ng coffee shop kung madamj dami naman ang mga eksenang na witness ng slightย ย 

Maligayang pagbabalik Pinas,BV!

Coffee shop din ang isa sa favorite spot ko. Kagaya mo, hahanap ng spot sa isang corner at chill habang pasulyap sulyap sa iba. Minsan magtatakip pa ako ng libro para di halata.

One time, hindi naman sa cafe pero habang nagdidinner kami, may isang ate na nagscan ng menu. After a while dumating yung guy, nagtingin din sa menu. Umorder sila and eventually dumating na yung order nila. Ang sad part - umalis si guy 5 mins after ma serve yung food. Ipina-takeout ni Ate yung natira. โ€œI think this was their first meeting and guy just didnโ€™t like her.โ€ Sabi ng kasama ko na local. Kung sa Pinas baka at least tatapusin naman ang date, wala pa ako nakita na ganun dito so far.

Ang dami ko pang na encounter na ganyan and minsan, ako yung natutuwa and nalulungkot on behalf of them.

Next time Abit, mag people watch over coffee nga tayo! :)

Agree! Iba pa rin ang pakiramdam ng nasa Pinas (for vacation).

Naging habit ko na mag observe ever since. Masaya rin mag interpret ng mga situations and scenes sa galaw at reactions ng mga tao. Keep on doing this, madalas enjoy naman.

Thanks for this post. Non-erotic man ay worth basahin.

Thank you! Minsan lang ako magkatime para makasulat ng mabilisan. Ang bagal ng connection sa airport plus walang magawa, might as well write diba?

Kapag naman nagoobserve ka, ibang scenario naiisip mo for them, pang alis na rin ng boredom.

I've always loved poking into people's minds... Kaya I admit na isa rin akong people watcher... Wala lang... parang ang sarap lang panoorin at pag-isipan kung anong meron sa mga ginagaw nila... :)) there are time pa na i'm trying to read people's lips pag di ko madinig pinag-uusapan nila... :))

Don't confuse me with a devotee...

Agree! Entertaining ito lalo na kung magisa ka lang. Minsan nilalagyan pa sila ng sarili mong version ng usapan nila especially kapag mukhang nag a-argue sila :))

Madalas ko gawin yan. Hindi dahil sa marites ako o ano pero nakakatuwang pagmasdan ang mga tao sa paligid. Minsan makakarelate tayo sa kanila. Minsan maikukumpara naman natin yung sarili natin sa kanila. Pwede ring makakuha ng inspirasyon sa buhay.

Bisyo ko yan pag nasa kalye ako lalo na pag ipit ako sa traffic.

Having been on both sides, either waiting for someone to arrive, or waiting to be picked up, it's so true what you said about PH vs SG and other countries. Mas maraming ganap, hahaha! Sa pinas, isang van ang susundo sayo, daming boxes pa ang inuuwi. Sa SG naman, siguro dahil sa convenience ng pag sundo, iilan lang. But either way, nakakataba sa puso pa din.

That feeling of reuniting with family, sobrang nakakamiss. Thanks for sharing.

Swerte pa nga kapag may susundo sayo sa airport sa SG, diba?

Ginagawa lang namin ito with close friends of family na mag visit sa SG for a while - but usually, sasabihin ko na โ€œmag cab na lang kayoโ€ :D

Oo! Pag yung bibisita, familiar na sa SG, hayaan na lang sila. Pero fam and friends, sundo sila. Tapos mapapagastos ka sa kanila sa Universal Studios. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Best place to do people watching is at the airport.. from the check-in counter to your gate while waiting to board and by the time you deplane.. walking towards baggage carousel.. you see different people.. from what they are wearing, how much baggage they carry.. a fight broke out between gf/wife and amongst children...what's wrong with their body.. why do they walk like that..no better place to be than in the airport

I totally agree!

Primarily because we do a lot of waiting at the airport like what you said above. You can also see the actual society divide there and hence it has always been very interesting to watch people just go on with their day. In that small window of time, somehow, you got a glimpse of their lives.

People-watching to destress.

Sometimes I make up dialogues between people lalo na yung may mga ganap na hindi mo naririnig yung pinag-uusapan. Away, tampuhan.

Interesting din bigyan ng imaginary dialogue yung mga tahimik - usually middle-aged couples. Or yung mga naghihintay na obviously late ang katagpo.

Yes, you got it right, pang de-stress.

Sa case ko, since ang tagal ko naghintay sa waiting area kaya yung na lang muna ang ginawang form or entertainment. And I do people-watch all the time.
