It just dawned on me today how much the word kubeta annoys me. Lately, it seems like my friend keeps bringing up this word whenever we talk and it was when I realized how irritated I was by the word.
For those of you who are not familiar with this word, this is the Tagalog (Filipino) word for toilet.
I really can't explain it but couldn't we all just say loo, bathroom, restroom, comfort room or even "CR" ? We can also say "men's room", "ladies' room" or even "powder room".
Kubeta sounds so ... uh... crass ?
I have this habit of leaving my laptop on and signed in to YM, so one time, I get back to my laptop to check and see if I have any emails waiting for me and what do I see ?
"Nakakatae ka ba sa public na kubeta ?"
Huh? I swear, I checked twice... three times even to make sure if I was reading the question right.
Okay, compared to TAE*, I guess KUBETA isn't so bad anymore.
to my friend - haha! if you're reading this, am not annoyed by you ah, just the word :P
On a lighter note, I just created the first of a few blog portals on FeedCluster.com that I've been meaning to set up. My new portal is called EasyCooking and aims to aggregate posts & blogs that share easy to prepare recipes. If you want to add your blog to my portal, log in to EasyCooking and click on "Add my blog".
edit: I just realized how totally inappropriate this post is. I never imagined that I would talk about toilets, #2, and food in the same post.
Ugh. But then again, what's done is done. :)
