Filipino Answers to Filipino Questions


Recommended Posts

  • Liaison

Okay, so I decided to make another thread solely for the purpose of addressing Filipino questions in a quick, short and witty way.

We all know the answers, the sophisticated ones.... But this thread is different. I'm talking about some "silver bullet" answers to tough, offending, and oftentimes hurtful questions posited by either relatives or friends especially in the context of the Filipino culture.

Let's try if this thread will work. :)

I will start:

How will you answer questions like "Sa dinami-dami ng lalake (o babae), bakit sa pinsan mo pa?!" without making the situation worse, and messy, and with all the emotions flying around? Your answer must be one or two sentences...short, witty and must be satisfying to the questioner (at least for the time being just so he can be pacified). :P

If you have more questions like this, feel free to post them here.. Yung mga tanong na sa tingin ninyo'y mahihirapan kayong sagutin... Sky is the limit ng questions and so of course, lahat ng tanong natin eh pag-aaralan natin (yung assumptions na nakapaloob, yung tamang dosage ng response, yung tone, yung kung nakadepende ba ito sa kung sinong taong kausap or kung anong klaseng kausap, etc... :)

I believe maraming nagbabasa ng thread na ito eh at makakatulong rin ito sa kanila.

Tulungan tayo rito. :)

Pooch,

Thanks for posting this. I had that guilt feelings because I had a lot of girlfriends before I met my cousin. Please read my story. I grew up in Manila and went to the US about 28 years ago. My answer is that you can't tell your heart who to love. It was love at first sight. After 37 years, that love is still there. It's a love that cannot live but never dies. I hope that we'll be together soon. Just waiting for her to decide to be with me here in the US.

im 19 now. were both studying !!! im going to college this septemberr !! hindi ako nagwowork naghahanap pa.. and im from etobicoke ontarioo !!

Ah I see..

I suggest to really go slow with him. Focus on your academics. Pag may sinasabi ka na sa buhay, hindi ka nila aapihin. Ako naman, nasa Malayong Kanluran ng BC. Sa UBC naman ako. Pero nasa ibang province na ako (mas malapit kung nasaan ka. lol)

Tamang-tama nasa Ontario ka pala. Any plans of going to UofT or sa Univ of Waterloo? Galingan mo. Kokonti lang ang Pinoy sa universities na talagang may sinasabi, if you know what I mean.. :)
