Sitti Responds to Netizen’s Post about Her Song and Chicken Cordon Bleu at Weddings

Ito yung pineplay sa kasalan habang nakapila ang tao sa buffet. Hayss miss ko na [chicken] cordon bleu,” a netizen jokingly lamented while alluding to Sitti’s “Para sa Akin” song. LOL.

Sitti’s Song Popular in Wedding Receptions

Pinay bossa nova singer Sitti Navarro recently went viral after responding to a netizen’s post about her song and chicken cordon bleu at weddings. The netizen was simply having some wishful thinking about attending a wedding to eat chicken cordon bleu while Sitti’s song, “Para sa Akin”, plays in the background as the guests choose food from the buffet table.

The singer laughed at how people have come to associate the song with wedding buffets (and chicken cordon bleu since this is a popular reception menu). She also admits that she misses attending and singing at weddings or other special events. Though she did not mention it, Sitti refers to the lack of events due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Amused over the netizen Ron Ron’s comment about her song, Sitti promised to sing at his wedding. She also jokingly promised to pay for the cordon bleu, adding that she will definitely not scrimp on that order.

Soon, the post reached the netizen who commented on the post. It turned out to be a certain Ron Aldwin De Ramos who wrote, “Salamat Ms. Sitti Navarro at dun sa ig user na nakapansin ng post ko! Hahaha sana po kayo ang kumanta sa kasal ko at isang tray ng cordon bleu ang inyo hahahahaha char!!

Meanwhile, a lot of netizens commented that they feel the same way that Ron Ron does when they hear Sitti’s song because this is often played in the weddings that they had attended.

Pag pineplay to naaamoy mo yung mga handa sa buffet. Hahaha,” one wrote.

Kanya kanyang plate kasi sa buffet kaya bagay yung song na “Para sa kain”(Akin) 😂😂😂,” another joked.

It wasn’t surprising that the first day was marred with glitches – and so many users complained that they were unable to register their SIM cards no matter how many times they tried.

The telcos were forced to announce that they were having technical glitches, urging their subscribers to be patient as they try their best to improve their systems to accommodate the registrations.

With so many people experiencing difficulties in registering their SIM cards on the first day, those who managed to do so quickly took to social media to announce their success – and many found creative ways to do.

Soon enough, social media became flooded with posts of photo cards and faux tarpaulins announcing a similar theme: congratulations to the new RSCs (registered SIM card) users!

Others had different ways to announce their successful registration, but most followed a similar format to that of supportive family members or friends supposedly congratulating them for their success.

It’s reminiscent of tarpaulins for board exam passers – but most of those who posted these photo cards and pseudo tarpaulins created it themselves. LOL.

At least, the board passer whose mom made her create her own tarpaulin won’t feel too bad because others are also doing it (but for completely hilarious reasons).

So, have you posted your own version to congratulate yourself for successfully registering your SIM card?

Andi Eigenmann Goes Viral for Making Dried Fish (Tuyo / Buyad) from Scratch

Andi Eigenmann goes viral for making dried fish, locally known in Surigao (where she currently lives) as “buyad” or “tuyo” in Filipino. She made it from scratch with the help of some locals – and the family got to enjoy it for lunch! Cool, isn’t it?

Andi Eigenmann Goes Viral For Making Dried Fish

Andi Eigenmann is an actress who’s now based in Surigao with her family, known on social media as the Happy Islanders.

Considering that she’s from showbiz royalty, what with the Eigenmann family being one of the most prominent actors and actresses in the industry, many people were surprised that Andi chose to live a quiet, simple life in Surigao.

And by simple, you’ll be surprised at what this young mom is able to do!

Aside from raising her kids the island way, she also opened a surf shop and snack bar with her partner, Philmar Alipayo.

And it appears that Andi has learned a lot from the many years she has spent in Surigao.

Aside from now obviously knowing the language, she also knows how to make dried fish!

In a video uploaded on their YouTube account, Andi shares how they got the fish fresh from the fishermen at the beach. Then, she prepared the dried fish by first cleaning up the catch.

She received instructions and assistance from some of the locals, and soon she was able to prepare the Filipino favorite.

This is the time on the island na minsan na lang ‘yung sunny weather. Kaya ngayon we want to take advantage [of the sunny weather] and gagawa kami ng buyad.  Inexplain lang sa akin ni papa ng konti kung paano ‘to gawin,” she explained.

The reason why I like to make home-made buyad is because mahirap makahanap ng hindi gaano ka-alat. Gusto namin kami magtimpla ng saltiness. Instead of using a whole lot of salt, we are using salt water from the ocean.

The dried fish was ready for cooking the following day.

Fans were amazed by her skills in preparing dried fish – and how she cooked this and other food for her kids.

Watch the video here:

Why Is Dried Fish Popular in the Philippines?

Plenty of foreigners abhor the smell and taste of fried fish, but it’s an all-time favorite in the Philippines. It’s a popular dish across all walks of life, although the rich people have “more sosyal” options than the cheaper ones.

For example, one of Neri Naig’s many businesses includes gourmet tuyo.

Sinabawang Hotdog? Andrea Brillantes Goes Viral for Tasting Oil While Cooking in Music Video

Anong lasa ng cooking oil, Andrea?” netizens couldn’t help but jokingly ask actress Andrea Brillantes after she appears to taste the oil she used for cooking hotdogs in a music video, “Tahanan.”

Andrea Brillantes Tastes Cooking Oil

OPM singer Adie’s music video for “Tahanan” started off with a cliché scene of a man waking up in bed alone, then finding his partner cooking breakfast for him. She ruffles his hair and offers him a slice of sandwich.

It’s clear that she’s really just cooking some hotdogs (nothing wrong with that, of course).

But netizens found the next scene hilarious: Andrea’s character appears to taste the soup she’s cooking, saying “Sarap!” with rounded eyes – and everyone knew she was cooking hotdogs! Ooooops.

Do you taste the oil when frying something, then say it’s delicious? Of course, not!

So, netizens had a field day laughing at Andrea, but the actress happily went along, posting “sinabawang hotdog supremacy” on her social media account.

Why Did Andrea Taste the Cooking Oil?

The biggest question in everyone’s mind is why she tasted the cooking oil in the first place? But the music video’s director and producer, Kris Cazin, clarified that it was exactly what they wanted to happen.

Okay so nag viral tayo dahil sa sinabawang hotdog. It actually worked!” Kris happily announced.

I just thought it looks dumb so I went for it. If you think it’s funny and stupid, that’s the point!

He added that this isn’t about a gender role, but wants to point out that it’s important to show appreciation to your partner, even if they don’t really know how to cook – at least they tried to do it for you, right?

Don’t expect all women, jowa, asawa, etc na marunong magluto,” he said.

Ipagluluto ka parin niya kahit di siya marunong magluto. Show mo parin ang pagtingin mo sakanya, mahal mo parin siya despite mukha siyang ewan na umiinom ng sabaw ng hotdog.

What do you think of this video?
