R U KABAYAN?

Weird things happening these days..

I got an SMS from an anonymous number saying: (I'm typing it the same way I received it)

SMS:Hi, how r u?
Me: who’s this?
SMS:Im Shayne, U remember me?
Me: Shayne who?
SMS: Shayne lopez. R u mr William Briton? The frend of bel? If nt then may I knw u? If u dnt mind.
Me: I only know jenifer lopez ;) so I guess it’s a wrong number dear.
SMS: Hahaha! Im sori, maybe now u got 2 lopez’s Shayne & jennfr. Can we be frends dear?

I didn’t reply..

SMS: What nationality r u? R u my KABAYAN?


Is this a new way of meeting people?

yke3= working so hard that he might end up saying "ke3" by the end of the day (tara ana ikhtara3t tafseer il kelma.. i think the real meaning is somewhat relative.. i think he means "work hard"

7aram maskeen :)

My American friend in the Kuwait got a call from a Kuwaiti girl:

Him: hello?
Girl: Allo?
Him: yes, who's this?
Girl: you are american? (english imkasar)
Him: Um, yes, who is this?
girl: Will you be my freeeeiiiinnd?! (she actually stretched the word in a weird way).

I was there when it happened, cracked me up for 20 minutes - we still call him up and ask him to be our 'freeeeeiinnnd'!

papillion: LOL - ya7lailha :)

7tenths said...

Yeah I don't know what it is with Philipino people prank calling the whole nation :P I get prank called all the time & my response is always something like: I'm sorry, this is the wrong num-SLAM! Those punks close the phone in my face when I'm kind enough to apologize for their mistake! Infidels..

Sheba said...

Mother courage
kabayan is "friend" in philipino, but i didn't know what it meant until i asked catch22.
