The elevator opened and we got in together.
K: Hey A, kamusta?
A: (smiled thinly) Okay lang.
It took me a moment before I realized what she meant. Okay lang can suggest many things: good, not bad, just okay, so-so. For a while you think that's not very interesting.
But when you really think hard about it, it's on a knife-edge of hope and despair.
