  1. Tag'-'lish bastard each other into confusion. Moronic speak is acceptable and even tolerated by most in society as the norm in Filipinas.

  2. Heard this from my teacher before: "By and by"

  3. Our house painter once said:"Sir, kailangan po ng 'second putting'..." WTF! imbes na SECOND COATING

  4. nagdadalawang isip = nagsisikantot

  5. "Anulled" and void (WTF)
    Benefit of the "daw?"
    base to base "casis"
    My "answers" have been "prayed" (hahahahha)
    For a while, please "hang yourself" (nyahaahhah)

    I found the same blog (date:2009)

  6. I remember my teacher told us "you're so redundant"

    I heard my classmates prayed before the class starts

    "Our heavenly Father who art in HEAVEN"


    Anyone heard Keana Reeves in PBB back in 2006 she said "problema sa financial problem" all of us had a poker face. I don't know why, probably because we haven't heard so many grammar mistakes on TV and then finally heard it on a Filipino reality series

  7. nagsesermon ang teacher ng anak ko sa mga students while having class....
    " How many times did I told you......" !!!!

  8. "You, you, and you! The both of you. I want to see your parents tomorrow, Right now!"

    Hahaha! Classic Highschool stuff!
