“Pa, pakihugot nga nu’ng rice cooker!” sabi ni Misis. Nagkamali ng dinig ang nagmamakatà kaya heto, isa na namang hugot ang naganap. Ang “Alaala ng Sinaing” ay isang dalit, katutubong tulang Filipino na may 4 na taludtod at 8 pantig bawat taludtod. Si Edelio, and sumulat nito, ang admin ng Tulatoonz at manunulat na kasapi ng LIRA, organisasyon ng mga manunulat sa wikang Filipino.
