Bumili kami ng buko, kani-kanina lang. Sabi ko take out, 50 pesos. So, habang pini prepare ni kuya ang buko juice, tinanong ko siya kung malaki ba kinikita niya. Sabi niya pag tag init from 8am to 3pm 2K na ang kita niya, bawas na ang puhunan. Na kwento ko nga sakanya yung sa dirty ice cream naman, sabi niya mas malaki daw kita niya dun. Ang galing lang, kasi yung akala natin na mas malaki kinikita natin kasi sa company tayo nag ta trabaho. Mas mahirap nga lang sakanila pero okay na din ang kita. Anyway, sabi nga pala niya nilalagyan ng konting asukal kaya matamis ang buko juice”
