Ang walang kamatayang cellphone ng Panday. Apparently, the cellphone is an integral plot device to the entire story — who knew? It also has unlimited charge.
Tristan chose to bring his cellphone, over let’s say, food, while traveling to find the Bakunawa. He did say that they were traveling for a “couple of days” when they were abducted by Ian de Leon and the leprosy gang. It was a wise choice of course since apparently nobody goes hungry in the world of Panday and the cellphone was a useful tool in warding off Shrek-looking ogres.
The cellphone was also so beautiful that Lizardo’s henchman couldn’t resist but steal it from the sleeping ogre and bring it to Lizardo as a gift — which he rejected because he wanted the Bakunawa — oo nga naman, Bakunawa yung hinahanap niya, binigyan mo siya ng cellphone, tange! — ano naman ang gagawin ni Lizardo sa cellphone? And I’m sorry I asked because I just know the Panday people are going to find a way to put that in there somewhere.
Eden then asked one of the dancing slaves (I kid you not, all they do is dance all day) to give her the cellphone, and the slave stupidly gives it to her. So the prisoner can ask for anything she wants is that it? Eden looks at the cellphone which still has a charge after all this time — nag-training na si Tristan and all, take note, and it was ringing non-stop until Pinoy Shrek fell asleep, unless of course, Pinoy Shrek knew how to turn it off to conserve battery. I was waiting for the phone to have a “secret message” for Eden to make the ridiculousness of it all complete, but it didn’t happen. Siguro Eden will use it as a weapon in a future, or, she’ll use it as a signal — since Tristan can’t hear her voice for some reason, baka marinig niya yung ring. Like Ipe, I am now 100% certain the cellphone will return again.
