edi is hilarious

Today, we are going to know some of the famous expressions Filipinos use. Note these does not have English translations. 

WEH?!?

Use this when you can’t believe something a person just said. This is like saying “Really?” Example is 

Person 1: Ang ganda ko. (I’m beautiful)

Person 2: WEH?!

You can also say 

OH TALAGA? DI NGA? YUNG TOTOO?


CHAROT / CHOS / CHAR

This can replace the word “joke” and to better understand, let’s use it in a sentence: 

Me: *confidently flips hair* Ganda ko talaga! Charot! Hahah (I’m so beautiful! charot / joke!)

KERI / KERIBELLS

Keri lang / Okay lang - it’s okay

Keri ko ‘yan - I can do that

DAMI KONG TAWA! MGA 100! HAHAHA

This is used when something is too funny for your life. The number corresponds to the “laughs” you had when something is hilarious. 

EDI WOW

Use this when someone is very proud of him/her or something. A sarcasm like this will most likely shut him/him up. 

Example: 

Person 1: Perfect ko yung exam kanina  tapos isa lang mali ko sa seatwork! (I got a perfect score in our exam earlier and I only got one mistake in the seatwork! I’m such a genius!)

Person 2: EDI WOW! *then walks away*

Got questions? Drop them in my ask box :)

There’s someone at work who always answers my emails with a “SEEN.”
I started to think about Shepard going to see EDI during ME3 to discuss how some people “have expressed concerns” about “EDI reading their private conversations” and how they would at least like to know for sure what she reads or not. Of course, EDI tells Shepard she can’t help but read every communication going in and out of the ship. Shepard sighs and says: “I know, EDI, I know. Some fears just can’t be explained.”
So EDI agrees to warn people every time she reads their private messages.

A few days later, this Alliance soldier is writing to this girl on the Citadel. He tells her he’s happy to have met her and how he’s excited to be alone with her soon, and you know, do things with her. Winky face. 
And the only answer he gets is from EDI.
“SEEN.”
