Craziest Things Only Filipino Moms Say

By Therese Aseoche

Moments from Volleyfriends UAAP Volleyball Kick Off SHAD

Our moms come up with the craziest expressions. Sometimes, we wonder where they even get them! But it’s what makes Pinoy Moms so unique and fun to love — at least, when they aren’t mad at you.

Which of the following strange statements have you heard your mom say out of frustration?

You: “Ma, nawawala yung (insert lost item here) ko. Hindi ko makita!”

Mom: “Mata kasi ang gamitin panghanap, hindi bibig!”

Mom: (Scolds you)

You: *hikbi*

Mom: “Huwag kang iiyak!”

Mom: (Scolds you) “Ano? Sasagot ka pa?”

You: “Eh, kasi…”

Mom: “Ah, sumasagot ka na pala ngayon!”

Mom: “Anak, kumain ka pa.”

You: “Busog na po ako.”

Mom: “Anong busog? Ubusin mo pagkain mo. Maraming nagugutom na bata!”

Mom: “Magpapabili ka nanaman ng kung ano-ano. Anong akala mo sa akin? Nagtatae ng pera?”

Mom: “Hay nako! Wala ka na ngang ginagawa sa bahay, ang tigas pa ng ulo mo! Manang mana ka talaga sa tatay mo!”

Mom: “Ako nalang gumagawa ng kung ano-ano dito sa bahay. Wala manlang tumutulong sakin. Ano ako, katulong ninyo? Kung ako namatay, bahala kayo sa buhay ninyo!”

You: (when literally anything bad happens to you)

Mom: “Ayan! Ayan! Kakakompyuter mo!”
