Girls Talk : Funny Books

October 14th, 2010
Last week we were done crying with our sad….sad… story books. Mine was “A Walk to remember”. This week is the other way around. Let’s all laugh our heart out with funny books. You must have ” YOU KNOW YOU’RE A FILIPINO IF…..” it’s a “Pinoy Primer” selected and edited by Neni Sta. Romana-Cruz. These are funny and heartwarming traits Filipinos are known for, wherever they are in the world.

Examples :

1. We cover our nose with hankerchief even if the vehicle is air-conditioned
2. We have relatives whose nicknames consist of repeated syllables, such as Ping-ping, Jun-jun and Long-long.
3. We decorate our living room wall with family’s framed diplomas, certificates and plaques.
4. We demand that our children to sing and dance such as to amuse our friends and relatives.
5. We are related to everyone… we call anyone lolo, lola, tita, tito even Mommy, Daddy… without blood relation..

The list goes on and on… Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    I've seen this book around; I've never read it but I've seen some excerpts – and yes, I am convinced it's funny 😀 We pinoys can really poke fun at ourselves and those peculiar things we do.
