HEAR NO EVIL, SEE NO EVIL, SPEAK NO EVIL!!!

"...don't wanna hear about it ...
don't wanna see it
...
don't wanna talk about it..."


Whatever the origin and meaning of
"hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil,"
it is one of the most visual phrases in existence.

Di ba monkeys ang orig nito, bakit palaka ang sa 'yo, ha ha ha!!! I forgot the names ng 3 monkeys, do you remember them? Ikaw pa!

Yes, the three wise monkeys are Mizaru (covering his eyes), Kikazaru (covering his ears), and Iwazaru (covering his mouth. Supposed to be there is fourth monkey, Shizaru, symbolizing the principle of "do no evil". I have no idea kung bakit di siya kasama sa mga nakikita natin. This teaching originated in Japan.

Heto na naman ako! Kaka-addict talaga! I remember also the gift given to you by your friend. I forgot his name, galing yata sa Hongkong, made of jade pa ang statue, super sa ganda di ba. Do you still have it?

It is still with me. I treasure all the gifts I received from my friends. It was Ed Vallester, who gave me the statue. He is now in Australia. We communicate regularly.
