ONLY IN THE PHILIPPINES...

I know that versions of this have been circulating on the 'Net. But what the hey, it's my blog, so I'll put 'em up. My Comments are in these brackets: [ ]


Along a highway in Pampanga: "WE MAKE MODERN ANTIQUE FURNITURE"

On a self-service restaurant in Cebu: "PLEASE HELP OUR COMFORT ROOM CLEAN"

In a Baguio grocery: "FRESH FROZEN CHICKEN SOLD HERE"

In [where else!?] Cubao: "NONE ID NOTHING ENTRY"

Along Luneta Boulevard: "BAWAL TUMAE SA BULEVARD" [I'll bet!]

On Jeepney and Bus signs: "BEFORE PAY, TELL WHERE GET THE ON BEFORE GET THE OFF"

[I'm going to add a classic-- "GOD KNOWS HUDAS NOT PAY"]

On a flower shop along Rizal Avenue: "WE SELL ARTIFICIAL FRESH FLOWERS"

On a delivery truck: "NOT FOR HERE" [Quo Vadis, Lord?]

On window of a restaurant in Baguio: "WANTED: BOY WAITRESS" [Ah! A bastion of gayness! Wait, was that a typo?]

On a street in [Eraptown] San Juan: "BAWAL MAGTAPON NG BINALOT NA TAE RITO"

Grafitti inside the cubicle of a ladies' comfort room in a university: "PLEASE DON'T SIT LIKE A FROG, SIT LIKE A QUEEN." [I saw this somewhere... nope, don't ask me what I was doing in the ladies' room]

At a men's comfort room, above a urinal:(maybe from UP Diliman dorm) "HAWAK MO ANG KINABUKASAN NG BAYAN!!!"
[damn straight it came from a UP Diliman men's room]

[Another variant I saw at a College of Science stall: "YOU HOLD THE FUTURE OF THE FATHERLAND!"]

At a construction site in Mandaluyong: "BAWAL OMEHI DITO. ANG MAHOLI BOG-BOG"

Somewhere along San Andres: "NO URINATING, ON THE OVER WALLS!" [Ah, so can ON them? Beat that, Bayani Fernando!]

Vacant lot near Makati Avenue: "DON'T PARKING!!!"

At an eatery in Cebu: "WE HAB SOPDRINK IN CAN AND IN BATOL!"

On an Intramuros wall: "MARUNONG K BANG TUMAHOL? ASO LANG ANG UMI-IHI DITO!"

And this is the best of them all...para sa mga abugado ito.... (no offends ha?) [no offends!?]

On a building somewhere in the Philippines: "NOTARY PUBLIC, TUMATANGGAP DIN NG LABADA KUNG LINGGO."

ISN'T IT FUN TO BE FILIPINO?

...............
[Yeah. And we're ranked as the third most corrupt country in Asia.]

Yeheyyy! Pinoy ako!
