My niece posted this on my Facebook wall…

Clicked it and laughed my ass off so hard. Here she is! First time on Philippine TV!

Brush for the Chicken

Since Arn-arn cannot find a decent brush to use for the sauce (to spread it on the friend chicken) he logically used the next best thing… an unused toothbrush. Imagine a toothbrush dipped in a sauce beside a chicken on a buffet table.

 

One thing’s for sure though, it’s very unappetizing.

Crazy Word

My Indian colleagues taught me some dirty Indian words. One was “Chutiya” which means crazy.

So when I kept referring to Sharad, the one who taught me, “Chutiya, come here…”,  “Thanks, Chutiya…”  and things like that he finally told me the story of Latshiva.

Latshiva was a god who gave a right to a steward to kill anyone, anything, anytime. When the steward decided to kill Latshiva himself, Latshiva saw that there was a loophole in his rules. 

“Why are you telling me this?” I asked Sharad.
“Because I was the one who taught you these words and you are using it on me,” he answered.
“So what are you saying?” I had to ask.
“Don’t tell me these. To others, you can but not to me, ok?” he wanted me to affirm.
“Ok… Chutiya.”

Punto por Punto

After a very convincing sales pitch of the salesman from Carriefor, I told Ronald, “May punto yung lalake.”
“Magaling s’ya magbenta?”
“Hindi! Punto – accent. Parang Arabic.”

InZpired

Feeling the pressure of our job, I reminded Zinnia today, “Huy! Check mo bank account mo! Sweldo na. Para naman may passion ka nang mag-trabaho.”
“Ay oo nga pala! Para naman sipagin akong mag-OT sa Sabado,” she answered.

After a few minutes, Z came back to me and said, “May sweldo na nga! Nakaka-inspire na magtrabaho.”

Nota for Tem

“May ka-choir ako, nagpa-tattoo sa paa ng nota!” I told my sister.
“Imposible ‘yan! Nota!? Bastos!” She answered.
Tem, nota – notes! Halatang masyadong ka nang nahahalubilo sa mga bading. Ang meaning ng nota sa’yo yung ano lang!”
She laughed at her mistake and answered, “Oo nga! Note nga pala sa music ang nota!”

iPad Limit Every Month

I have a 1 GB plan every month for my iPad.
“33 MB ako per day,” I told Ronald and Atong.
“Huwag mong bilangin! Paano ka mag-e-enjoy sa pag-internet mo sa iPad?” Ronald told me.
“Eh sa ganun ako nag-e-enjoy eh.” I told them, “Paano ako mag-e-enjoy kung alam kong lampas ako sa limit ko everymonth at magmamahal ang bayad ko? Hindi panatag ang loob ko.”
They just laughed.
