This has got to be one of the most brilliant local memes ever. Thing is, if you’ve never worked in an advertising agency or a production company, you’ll never get this. If you are a freelancer or “the boss” (or you don’t speak Tagalog), you won’t get it either. These pretty much sum up what people in agencies (specifically the creatives) have to go through on a daily basis. I didn’t work in an ad agency but it felt like I did. I was laughing soooo much reading all the memes and though I’m a year late, I’d still like to share with you my favorites! Props to the creator of this and the contributors of all the funny shit. You guys made my day!
This hits home soooo bad! Bwahahahaha! “Viral” is soooo 2009!
Hola! Fabiola Pérez-Rovirosa! Na-miss niyo ba akez? Well, sorry naman ‘di ako nakapag-blog masyado these last two months. Nakaka-derder na ang absence ko kaya heto, a-araw-arawin ko ang pag-post! LOL. Ako’y muling nagbabalik para i-share sa inyo ang next installment ng ating “Makeover 101″ series. Tapos na ang pagpapa-puti at pagtanggal ng peklat. Next on our list – paano maiiwasan at matatanggal ang mga tigyawat. Alam niyo sa self niyo na hinihintay niyo ‘to. Hahahaha!
Noong teenager pa ko, feeling ko napaka-swerte ng mga kabataang walang acne problem. Yung tipong paisa-isa lang o di kaya, wala talagang tigidig! Okay naman ang fez ko nung high school pero nang nag-aral na ako sa Maynila, maygaz abelgas! Parang tigyawat akong tinubuan ng mukha.
Pagsama-samahin mo ang factors na stress, puyat at ang napaka-polluted at amoy imburnal na hangin ng Manila, ay naku, walang kawala ang dumi-dumi at nana sa pores! Sobrang sama ng acne problem ko, sabi ng classmate ko, meron daw akong mapa ng Pilipinas sa mukha! At alam naman nating lahat na may 7,107 islands tayo so imagine-in niyo na lang.
Before: 7 and 8 years ago. BEST IN CHAKA DOLL ang peg ko. Literal na nakakadiri! Ewww~
Basahin ang buong post para malaman ang resulta.
I’m happy to say na makinis na ang kutis ko ngayon, pero hindi pa rin kasing kinis ng pwet ng sanggol. Kelangan pa rin ng BB cream for more flawless effect pero at least hindi na ako tinitigyawat. Paano nga ba ito mawawala?
1. MAGHILAMOS KA.
Kelangan pa bang i-memorize ‘yan? Nakakatawa mang isipin pero jusme, may mga hindi naghihilamos bago matulog! Teh, kahit anong pagod mo, kahit pa wala kang pahinga tulad ni Curacha, kelangan mong magtanggal ng make-up at dumi sa mukha bago humimbing. Pero pero pero! ‘Wag oras-oras mag-hilamos, hanggang twice a day lang dahil lalong dadami ang mantikilya mo sa mukha, ergo, mas maraming boom boom base sa face!
2. MAGPA-DERMA AT FACIAL KA.
Why not, chocnut? Ito naman talaga ang isa sa pinaka-mabilis at mabisa na paraan para ma-jombag ang mga kalaban nating tigyawat. Subalit, datapwat, alalaumbagay prevention ang facial, hindi cure. Kapag namamaga at may yellow filling na ang pimple mo, best in peklat na yan kapag pinutok ‘teh. Kakayurin ‘yan gamit ang papel de liha para mag-flat uli at babalatan para mawala ang scars.
Utang na loob, ‘wag mo nang i-google image search ang “facial”. >___>
3. ‘WAG PUTUKIN ANG TIGYAWAT.
Hindi yan bubble wrap at lalong hindi bagong taon para magpa-putok. Please lang tantanan ito at ilayo ang nangangati mong mga daliri sa pimple!!! Gurl, yan ang sanhi ng baku-bakong balat at sa totoo lang, more more regret ako na hobby ko dati ang magpisa ng tigyawat. Huhuhuhu. May mga scars tuloy ako, pakingshet.
Recently, my life had been kind of… “safe”. I feel like there are no new challenges, everything seems rather scheduled and I don’t even get stressed out anymore. But what bothers me more is that I seem to have no hobby or any regular recreational activity, hence I don’t get excited. I still like Kpop but trust me, I’m not such a fangirl anymore. I haven’t even spazzed in a such long time! Blogging, writing and making videos will always be a part of me and I don’t consider them a hobby as much as they are a venue of expression.
So yeah, I need a new “interest”, something that I would look forward to doing and maybe something that I could be reeaalllyyy good at. Here are some of the things that were suggested or what I had in mind.
Perhaps it’s the age coupled with the calling to be domesticated but I found my self watching more Food Network and cooking shows more than I’ve ever had in my life. I used to loathe the kitchen but now I wanna learn how to whip up dishes ala Rachel Ray (she makes everything look fun and easy) and Giada De Laurentiis (she’s so calm yet sexy while cooking). So far I only cook for Jimmy but if I take up this hobby, I might be able to cook for you too, yeah?
Aprons are for pussies.
Most people were athletic in their prepubescent and teenage years. I was one of those people. And like many, I started working like a horse, drinking like an alcoholic and smoking like a chimney (though I don’t anymore). All semblance of athleticism and fitness in my body were thrown out the window. I would work out once in a while but I had no passion for it. So, should I start running? It seems “in” these days. How about badminton? Perhaps more unconventional ones like Chess Boxing or Basketball Kissing?
Or this. Seems legit.
My friend, Kyle suggested this to me and though he may have been joking, it’s not such a bad idea. TESDA, IMO is an amazing government agency that empowers and allows Filipinos to master skills that could help them have a livelihood. I can learn dressmaking so I can my make my own clothes, food processing (tocino, longanisa, ham, etc) because why the hell not?, bartending ‘coz I’ve always wanted my own bar and even animation. Bitch, plz. Best thing about it is the courses are soooo affordable! Let’s admit that there’s a stigma that TESDA is only for people who can’t afford a 4-year college degree. Well, why don’t we change that?
And tunay na babae, marunong mag-kumpuni ng sirang TV.
