Filipino Slang Reaches WeChat’s Sticker Gallery
The Philippines today has a new form of communication known as the Filipino slang.
If you search what “Gorabels” is in a dictionary, sadly you would find it there but most likely you might have heard it while at the malls or while watching a telenovela on TV. It is a means of expression of our new generation of Filipinos. It is a mix and match of existing languages and dialects like English and Bisaya and it can even include Gay lingo and names of popular celebrities and pop icons.
As Filipinos become more and more open minded, the Filipino slang gets more recognized as a language of everyday usage. In line with this, one of the country’s top social mobile apps WeChat joins in on the bandwagon of this hip and trendy slang by releasing 16 colorfully animated stickers that reflect the fun and witty phrases that Filipinos invented.
Are you about to have an exam but have not reviewed properly? You can send the “Bahala na si Batman!” sticker to your classmates to liven their spirits. An office mate that is about to as for a raise from her boss could use a “Gorabels!” sticker to give her a quick confidence boost.
Whichever situation you may have, there is a perfect Slang from the WeChat’s Sticker Gallery available for you.
