4. "Try reading the Filipino version of (Harry Potter/ The Hunger Games/ Twilight/ 50 Shades of Grey) without laughing."

These books have been translated in multiples languages, yet you and Cosmopolitan Philippines see the Filipino version as a source of jokes? Come on...

7. "Really? What about 'autotune?'"

Autotune. You do know we can borrow foreign words and use it in Filipino, much like using "je ne sais quoi" and "kawaii" in English.
