Here Are the Best
By Tynne De Leon
We’re still in the first quarter of the year but a lot of memes have already made their mark on our social media feeds. Considering how the internet can become intolerable, we consider these as blessings. We can’t wait to see what’s next.
For now, here are the ones that made us laugh harder than we should, and we might or might not have reposted some of these:
8. Sinigang: The Pambansang Ulam
Origin: Bagani, the latest Filipino historical teleserye of ABS-CBN, received a lot of backlash due its casting of “half-Pinoys”, and misappropriation of an ICC/IP term. Lead star Liza Soberano, who is half-American, replied to one tweet with this quote:
Thus, the sinigang meme was born.
7. Selfie Muna
Origin: This meme began with this one post:
Selfie muna bago manghabol ng kapitbahay hehe
/Oski David David David
Everyone found it hilarious, so it was followed by other entertaining versions, which included other animals and people:

6. Aling Vicky

This ultimate question: ‘who/where is the real Aling Vicky’ went viral on both Facebook and Twitter, with people considering Aling Vicky as their spirit animal.
