Filipinos are so fond of expressions. Terms like shucks, gosh, etc. (even foul words such as sh!t, f$*k) are common nowadays. Expressions say a lot about us. Some expressions are classified according to gender and/or work (baklush, chever, nachorva, chenelyn), age and/or social status (dito na me, where na u?, and more). Even gays from different work areas or departments have their own linggos. While some are just mere expressions. Take this for example:
Gay 1: Hayy naku, bitter ocampo na naman eksena ng lola mong si Lee.
Gay 2: Ketz? Preggy Aguilar???
Gay 1: Nuz! Na luz valdez sa jowa nya. Iniwan!
Gay 2: Carry na yun. Pareho naman silang jowangis.
Gay1: Kuratz! Crayola to death na naman ang eksena nyan later. Hahaha!
Gay 1: Na korva mo na ba yung keverlyn?
Gay 2: Wiz. Kumever kever na kiz para ma korva ang kinetch.
Just the same as terminologies like “eww” are mostly heard from high school Scholasticans or Paulinians taken from girly movies such as White Chicks, The Hot Chick, et al. But one incident made me confirm that such fact was wrong, totally wrong.
Last night while having dinner, our maid was watching a fanta-series called Diyosa when actor Zanjoe Marudo was about to kiss a creepy character played by Chocolate. Our helper suddenly screamed on top of her lungs, “Ewwww!”
As blog ni Inday would have it, sosyal na talaga ang maids ngayon. 😉
How about you? What kind of expressions do you often say? Eww? Hehe.
