On Easter Sunday, I was telling friends that I had cooked beef stroganoff and baked chocolate chip cookies the day before. I initially planned on prepping adobo but didn't do so because I didn't have soy sauce. Sounds feasible enough... in English. It took on a totally different meaning when I was talking with them in Filipino.
I had said, "Hindi ako nakaluto ng adobo dahil wala akong toyo."
