Programming Language: ENGLISH

There are lots of Filipinos here in Macau and I find the Filipinos here more friendlier than in Hong Kong... Everywhere you go someone will greet you or ask you: "Pinoy ka?"", then I answered "Oo", then they would say ""Kabayan! Kumusta?"The ususal talk like: "Kailan ka pa dito sa Macau? "Taga san ka sa atin?" Some would just nod and smile when you walk in the streets... "Iba talaga ang Pinoy."

I was in the bus with some of my boardmates then I sat next with this one pinoy guy... We talked... Let's just call him "B".

B: Hay, ang iingay ng mga intsik noh? grabe sakit sa tenga...
Me: Oo nga eh...
B: Akala mo kung ano na nangyari o nag-aaway sila pero normal lang pala sa kanila ang ganyang usapan.
Me: (Smiling.) Taga san ka pala?
B: Laguna, ikaw?
Me: Ah, i see... Davao ako...
B: Ano course mo?
Me: Computer Engineering, ikaw?
B: Computer Science.
Me: Ah, talaga? So, magaling ka magprogram?
B: Medyo. Two year course lang yun.
Me: Talaga? May ganun ba?
B: Oo, nung mga 1990's meron pa tpos nun lang naging four years. Me: Ah ganun bah, so ano-anong mga Language ang alam mo?
B: Language? English.
Me: Programming Language?

B: English. English.

I was silent for a while and was about to laugh out loud but I don't want to make a scene or something and I don't want to make him feel that I know he's lying. Well, somehow, I think he knew it... I know this guy is not a Computer Science graduate neither he's taking up one because if he is, he should have known atleast one or he would know what a Programming Language is, right? hehehe...

*Ako pa niya wala na lang siya nangatik gud... Wa may mawala cguro kung musulti siya ug tinuod di ba? hehehehe...*

my comment to other comments..
the guy was not honest to his answers from the start pa.. so how can you guys appreciate him? kailan pa ngkroon ng ENGLISH LANGUAGE SA PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE? hehehe... maybe the "code" we used in making a program can be consider an english language BUT its not really english language! so answering a question "What Programming Language he know/s?" with ENGLISH? i think he dont know what programming language is? saan kaya siya ng-aaral? hahaay... naubos ENGLISH KO HA? sana sagot nalang nya
" MANDARIN,CANTONESE,etc" hehehe...

IN short SINUNGALING XA.

Hmm, I think honest yung answer ng guy..to think na 1990's pa siya nag graduate ha, and siguro di pa known to himself ang "programming languages" PERO kung tinanong mo sana kung alam niya ang "PASCAL or TURBO C", dyan natin malalaman kung CS graduate nga siya. HEHEHE.

Sino nakagamit ng "word star", "lotus 1-2-3", at saka diskette na 5 1/4" hahahahhahaha =))

Thanks miah,
don't forget may pasalubong ha!
