English 101

A car for sale in Port Wakefield, definitely NOT the car that Corey wants. 

My workmate Corey told me this morning that he was thinking of selling his boat and his motorbike then use the money to get the car that's currently for sale in Pt. Wakefield.

"Huhmn!  What's the 'KO-LOR' of that kHAH (as in caR)?"  I asked using my obviously fake Australian accent.  

He didn't answer, instead, his forehead skin wrinkled.  Puzzled, he asked me, "What's that?!"

Simple, he couldn't understand what I was saying, so I spelled the word- COLOUR. A bit embarassed, I asked him, "How do you pronounce that word here in Australia?"

"KAH-LAH!" he instantly replied.

Hahaha. Paano na kung magsama ang may Australian accent at may British accent? Hahaha.

Belated Happy Birthday to you!

Hindi rin ako mahusay sa American accent, Reena. Filipino-English accent ang kaya ko.

Marami akong naririnig na ganyan dito sa South Australia, at nakakatuwang pakinggan. (,"o
