Ang hirap talagang mag-Ingles! Pramis!
My work is generally into technical writing. Despite the fact that everyday I write manuscripts in English language, still I find it hard to write and speak English all the way. In fact, every time our American counterparts/consultants visit our Manila office, I see to it that I am the last person they'll talk to. And I make it sure that I am a little bit tipsy to boost my confidence coversing with them in pure English.
This is one reason why I lack confidence in speaking English especially in front of people whose English is their first language, or it may be their second but they are fluent and "talented". I have here an article found in the internet, it has been circulated around, mocked by many. I attached it here not to ridicule but to appreciate Filipino's capacity, no matter how little, no matter how uneducated, to utter English words or terms or at least convey a message in English; neverminding how "Carabao English" it could be.
And if you find it hard to read the letter from the picture, I re-typed it for your convenience. Here it goes:
I am not surprise or wonder why Dennis leave you why? What reason can you think about you’re very fat body. I thought before that Dennis only use me to his toy but sooner and later I’m realize that he really can’t not beared or stomached to be with you anymore because at first, Dennis say he could not stand you’re habit of making pakialam all his walks (lakad) and always calling to their house what he go home or this or that.
And then he say he get ashame to me either in school or in his family and then asking you to exercise you’re very very, very fat body. But you hate it. Thought you’re the most preetiest girls he knows about. What do you think you are “Beautiful Girl” of Jose Marie Chan?
Even you are beautiful face (to your think) you do not have the right to called me whatsoever or else difference name one time or the other for the real purposed to insults my personality because I’m never call you names either in the front of Dennis or in the backs of Dennis, but if you start already to calling me different name, I don’t have any other choice but to call you other different name to. Like you are a PIG, FAT, OBESSED, OVERWIGHT, AND UGLYSHAPE girl. Shame to you’re body that is to a BUDING.
You can’t not blame Dennis for exchanging you to me because I am more sexier that you when you look to us in the mirror. I’m repeat again that you are like Ike Lozada when she is a girl.
The sexiest Girl of D.M.
You say that I’m the bad breathe but who is Dennis want to kissed. Me or you? And the final is me. There you go.
