Welcome to my creative portfolio. I document my adventures and snapshots in travel, style and food here. Take your time to explore and hope you have a nice stay!

I Saw Da Sign

If there is one thing that you cannot expect Metro Manila to be, it would be it being monotonous. Living in Manila is far from being boring! Everyday is a totally different day from the previous days. Everyday are you assured of a new experience and a new perspective. There will always be something that will catch your attention, something that you have not notice before, even for the most inquisitive of eyes.

I Saw Da Sign is a testament of the Filipino's ingenuity and the spontaneity of living in one of the funniest cities in the world! It compiles the funniest signage that people had seen around Metro Manila. From clever advertisings, misspellings, to signs that would outright dumbfound you and make you utter, "Ano raw?", I Saw Da Sign offers a little bit of each and more! These are just some of them:

Alam na, adobo and puto in the house! 

A fairly new Korean brand that has graced the Philippines but it still did not escape the Filipino ingenuity! 

Enough said!

 Ang atim!

Afraid to board this bus, mabenta pa ako!

 Manong di nga, how much for the garage?

A feel-good, laughter-inducing treat, this book would surely make you laugh out loud and give you a stomach-ache after. Nonetheless, when I closed the book, only one thought crossed my mind: It really does make you feel good to be a Filipino.


I bought this copy at the National bookstore.
