Literature of the World Subject pushes me to publish this short Singaporean story which has very hard to find an English version, thus I am picking up M.R. Avena Tagalog revision.
SINGAPORE: Ang Istorya Ng Taxi Driver
By Catherine Lim
Revised By: M.R. Avena
(1) Ayos, Ma’am. Sigurado-Darating kayo sa miting ng mas
Maaga sa t’yempo. Dito tayo dumaan, Ma’am. Konting
Trapik, konting bara ng mga kotse. Medya-ora lang,
Naro’n na tayo. Kaya h’wag kayong mag-alala, Ma’am
(2) Ano yon. Ma’am? Oho, oho. Ha, ha-dalawampung taon
Na ‘kong taxi driver, Ma’am. Panahon pa ng kopong-
Kopong. Di pa ganito ang Singapore-nanikip sa tao,
Bising-bisi. Noon mas tahimik, kokonti pa lang ang taxi
Drivers, at di-masyadong maraming kotse at bus
