Kamusta na mga kababayan!

Matagal na akong di nagsusulat ng tagalog, buti nalang di ko pa nalimutan. Alam ko na madaming pinoy dito sa CL, lalo na dito sa cali. Halos kalahati ng CL karkada namin dito ay pinoy.

so yall will find this funny:

FILIPINO SIGNS OF WIT:

1. The sign in a flower shop in Diliman called Petal Attraction.
2. Anita Bakery
3. A 24-hour restaurant called Doris Day & Night
4. Barber shop called Felix the Cut;
5. A coffee shop named Brews Almighty
6. Fast-food place selling 'maruya' (banana fritters) called Maruya Carey.
7. Then, there are Christopher Plumbing
8. A boutique called The Way We Wear
9. A video rental shop called Leon King Video Rental
10. A restaurant in Cainta district of Rizal called Caintacky Fried Chicken
11.. A local burger restaurant called Mang Donald's
12. A doughnut shop called MacDonuts
13. A shop selling ‘lumpia’ (egg roll) in Makati called Wrap and Roll
14. And two butcher shops called Meating Place and Meatropolis.

Smart travelers can decipher what may look like baffling signs to unaccustomed foreigners by simply sounding out the 'Taglish' - the Philippine version of English words spelled and pronounced with a heavy Filipino such as:

15. At a restaurant menu in Cebu. The sign read and spelled, “We hab sopdrink in can an in batol?”
16. Then, a sewing accessories shop spelled Bids and Pises. You mean Beads and Pieces? Lol!!!

There are also many signs with either badly chosen or misspelled words but they are usually so entertaining that it would be a mistake to 'correct' them like.......

17. In a restaurant in Baguio City - Wanted: Boy Waitress Lol!!!!
18. On a highway in Pampanga - We Make Modern Antique Furniture
19. On the window of a photography shop in Cabanatuan - We Shoot You While You Wait
20. And on the glass front of a cafe in Panay Avenue in Manila - Wanted: Waiter, Cashier, Washier

Some of the notices can even give a wrong impression such as:

21. A shoe store in Pangasinan - We Sell Imported Robber Shoes
22. A rental property sign in Jaro reads - House for Rent, Fully Furnaced
23. Occasionally, one could come across signs that are truly unique - if not altogether odd.
City in southern Philippines - Adults: 1 peso; Child: 50 centavos; Cadavers: fare subject to negotiation
24. European tourists may also be intrigued to discover two competing shops selling hopia (a Chinese pastry) called Holland Hopia and Poland Hopia - which are owned and operated by two local Chinese entrepreneurs, Mr. Ho and Mr. Po respectively believe it or not.
25. Some folks also 'creatively' redesign English to be more efficient. The creative confusion between language and culture leads to more than just simple unintentional errors in syntax, but in the adoption of new words?
Says reader Robert Goodfellow who came across a sign..... House Fersallarend (house for sale or rent). Why use five words when two will do?
26. According to a Manila businessman, there is so much wit in the Philippines because? We are a country where a good sense of humor is needed to survive? We have a 24-hour comedy show here called the government and a huge reserve of comedians made up mostly of politicians and bad actors.
27. A restaurant in Quezon City with the name - “Cooking Ng Ina Nyo!”
28. Because business was good, another restaurant on the next block opened with the name “Cooking Ng Ina Nyo Rin!”
29. A certain Susan opened a flower shop south of metro manila… and the name of the shop is “Susan’s Roses”
30. A bakery named Bread Pitt

Kamusta na manga Kababayan! Kalat kalat talaga ang mga Pinoys and Pinays maski saan ka pumunta sa mundo. Mabute matutuklasan natin kung sino ang Filipino dito sa CL. Dito na ako lumaki sa Bay Area, pero hindi ko malilimotan mag sulat at mag salita nang Tagalog. (I came to the states in 1971)
Sige na pare, Umpisahan na natin ang Samahan Filipino CL Meet.

-Will

Btw, how many of us know the lyrics to "Bebot Bebot" by Black Eyed Peas.
Here I'll start it off. LOL

Hoy Pare! Pakingan nyo 'ko.
Ito na ang tunay na Filipino.

Top 10 Reasons Why There Couldn't Be a Filipino-American US President,
By David Letterman

10. The White House is not big enough for in-laws and extended relatives.

9. There are not enough parking spaces at the White House for 2 Honda Civics, 2 Toyota Land Cruisers, 3 Toyota Corollas, a Mercedes Benz, a BMW , and an MPV (My Pinoy Van).

8. Dignitaries generally are intimidated by eating with their fingers at State dinners.

7. There are too many dining rooms in the White House - where will they put the picture of the Last Supper?

6. The White House walls are not big enough to hold a pair of giant wooden spoon and fork (made in Baguio at that !)

5. Secret Service staff won't respond to "psst... psst" or ‘hoy….hoy…hoy…’

4. Secret Service staff will not be comfortable driving the presidential car with a Holy Rosary hanging on the rear view mirror, or the statue of the Santo Nino on the dashboard.

3. No budget allocation to purchase a Karaoke music-machine for every room in the White House.

2. State dinners do not allow "Take Home".

AND THE NUMBER 1 REASON WHY THERE COULDN'T BE A FILIPINO-AMERICAN U.S. PRESIDENT IS...

1. Air Force One does not allow overweight Balikbayan boxes!
