The Mokong survey: from zero to max

Have you heard or seen the AD, nakisakay na rin ang Pepsi sa mokong na banat ni PNoy? Regarding his love life that he compared to Coke Zero.

Pepsi released a FULL PAGE print ad with the tagline “Lovelife? Go from zero to MAX”

Bilang pagpapatuloy ng ating katuwaan, we went to the street, the mall, churches, beaches and gimmick places, and asked an almost the same question to ordinary people. We converted the mokong banat into a mokong survey and here are their responses…

We approached Ligaya, the main character in Rosanna Roces starrer film in the 90s “Ligaya ang itawag mo sa akin” and we asked her. “Kamusta lovelife Ligaya?” she answered with grace “Eto magang-maga.”

It was such a mokong banat Ligaya! Hahaha!

As we continue our kamokongan.  We went to a group of jeepney drivers and asked them, “Kamusta po ang lovelife?” they answered, “Dati basta driver sweet lover, naging barya lang sa umaga, ngayon barya na lang araw-araw.”

Hindi pa nagkasya namataan namin ang isang pormadong binata.  We found out that he is working as a mechanic in Philippine Airlines. We asked him, “Kamusta naman ang lovelife?” He answered, “Dati regular, naging contractual na, ngayon ma-si-zero pa.”

Narinig pala ng isang passersby ang aming usapan.  He introduced himself as a resident of an Urban Poor. He told us that he wanted to share his answer to us. “Ok kamusta lovelife mo?” he answered, “Dati squatter, naging illegal settler, ngayon homeless na. maiisip pa ba naming ang lovelife?”

We decided to proceed with our Mokong survey to the senate and we asked one senator, “Sir kamusta po ang lovelife?” he looked at us annoyed and he answered, “Huwag niyo akong pangunahan!”

Napikon yata namin kaya naman we decided to go to the lower house instead.  We chanced upon a young congress woman, we asked, “kamusta po ang lovelife?” she answered, “Huwag niyong dalhin dito ang pagiging brat niyo!”

More Mokong survey to come…

The Mokong Banat: kamusta love life mo?

The Mokong Banat: kamusta love life mo?

After PNoy disclosed during his speech before the Filipino Community in Beijing that he was asked about his most sought after lovelife, “May nagtanong ho kasi sa akin e—sabi niya, ‘Kumusta lovelife mo?’ Kaya ang sabi ko po sa kanya, ‘A, parang Coca-Cola.’ So sabi ngayon ng tao, ‘Hindi ko yata maintindihan.’ Kako, ‘Coca-Cola, ‘nung araw regular, naging light, ngayon zero,” we received some unsolicited answers from other ka-Mokongs on the same question.  And it goes…

“Ang lovelife ko parang beer,” as another former president said, “noong araw lights, naging pale, ngayon superdry.”

The pagalingan ng “banat” hit us like storm, more former presidents also sent their own versions, “Ang lovelife ko parang damit, noon RTW, naging eloys, ngayon ukay-ukay na,”

May mga sumingit pang mga presidentiables din naman.

“Ang lovelife ko parang DVD, may original at may pirated,”

“Ang lovelife ko parang pelikula, ang iba Rated PG, may rated R, madalas for adults only,”

“Ang lovelife ko parang lumalaki, dating small, naging medium, ngayon large na siya,”

“Ang lovelife ko parang wine, the older the better.”

More “banats” to “Kamusta lovelife mo?” question to come… abangan
