JANUARY 2020: Wholesome Haha for the Year
by Dominique Liongson

Is it your New Year’s Resolution to be in speaking terms with your Filipino partner? Is it to bring some laughter to the conversation? Try telling this joke:

Q: Why do puppies make stinky talk on New Year’s Day?
A: Because they explode with pup-poo-talk 
(sounds like paputok = firework)

DECEMBER 2019: Within Every Reindeer is a Dear
by Dominique Liongson

It appears that a reindeer is one of the popular icons of Christmas. Strangely, a reindeer can bring a romantic touch this way. Check this out:

PARTNER 1: Let me be your reindeer.
PARTNER 2: How will you be one?
PARTNER 1: When you’re out in the rain on a wet day, I will keep you dearly dry like rain-dears do.
(“rain-dears” = sounds like “reindeers”)

Although it doesn’t snow in the Philippines, nor does it have any reindeers, the Philippines has its rain and loving dears to keep their beloved safely dry. If you are wise in the heart and the head, no doubt have you chosen a partner who is as capable as rain-dears do. (Sounds like the secret to loving loyalty, isn’t it?)

You are invited to buy my book to share with the people you love, and also yourself this Christmas. I refer to Pun-tastic Ways for Brighter Days. It is good clean fun that you can’t help but roll your eyes or crack up laughing. Something like we gave the book our permission to make that happen.

Hurry! Order a copy (or copies) of Pun-tastic Ways for Brighter Days before the postal services go on holiday. (Too late? Then give it a go to order when the business days kick in. Have a drama-free delivery!)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

NOVEMBER 2019: Let Your True Love Be Your Turkey
by Dominique Liongson

It never occurred to me that a turkey in a Thanksgiving Dinner can be romantic. But, I think again. Check this out:

PARTNER 1: Let me be your Happy Thanksgiving.
PARTNER 2: How will you be one?
PARTNER 1: You will be happier after I am your tear-key who unlocks your tears, and lets you cry on my shoulder.
(“tear-key” = sounds like “turkey”)

One of the best things to be thankful about this Thanksgiving is having each other in good times and bad times. Encouraging a moment of tears will help make room for more happy memories with each other. After having good tears of sorrow, it’s perfect to speak and to listen to the words of good cheer.

As for words of good cheer, I know of a book to support that need. Have a good reading and sharing with Pun-tastic Ways for Brighter Days.

Although nothing can make us laugh, this little book encourages eye-rolls and laughter. Most likely we can say that this book has our permission.

Buy Pun-tastic Ways for Brighter Days and have a…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

by Dominique Liongson

Melting in the arms of your partner can happen on Halloween. Check this out:

PARTNER 1: Be my Halloween.

PARTNER 2: Why?
PARTNER 1: Because on the first time we met, you ween my hallo.
(Sounds like “…you win my hello”) 

Did that make you smile? Wow!

There’s candy without the dangers to the teeth nor the rest of the body. It is conversation candy called a pun. It is both teeth friendly and diabetic friendly. Composing and sharing puns are as easy as a piece of cake.

Running short of time to make your own puns? There is a book (of ready made riddle puns) titled Pun-tastic Ways for Brighter Days. Romance can start after eye-rolling or laughing at these funny riddles for they are either corny or hilarious.

by Dominique Liongson

Although winter isn’t the time for a frozen snack in the Northern Hemisphere way above the equator, this doesn’t stop you in the Philippines. Check this out:

PARTNER 1: Will you be my… my ease cone yellow?
PARTNER 2: What is that?
PARTNER 1: Because you’re corny and a sweet cream of the crop with a frozen touch.
PARTNER 2: Ohhh, I see. You mean your mais con yelo. 
(mais con yelo = sweet corn kernels with ice)

Frozen food in the Philippines… ahh… If you want to be more adventurous, try some guinomis, halo-halo, or gulaman at sago

Enjoy the brrr-y chilly season with warmth in mind and heart. Looks like the start of the -ber months and onwards will be loaded with sweetly corny pick up lines.  An example would be like the one about mais con yelo. 

Speaking of corny and sweet, a joke book can help you with that. Get yourself a copy of Pun-tastic Ways for Brighter Days. Reading it will let you roll your eyes or crack up laughing. Whether this book is read or heard, it will bring a smile to your beloved’s face and yours.

They say there are two seasons in the Philippines: Wet Season and Dry Season. Hands down! They missed out Autumn. Check this out:

Q: What is the closest Autumn experience in the Philippines?
A: To FALL in love. 
(Fall = Autumn)

Looks like it is Valentine’s Day part 2. 

A sweetie pie question to ask a partner is: “This Autumn, will you catch me… when I FALL in love with you?”

How syrupy sweet and cutie corny is that! Although it is, hearing it can either make your heart go “thump-thump” or “tibuk-tibok”.
