Gloria gets a “Kung Hei Fat Choi” haircut

In celebration of the Chinese New Year, Gloria wears red and gets a new haircut. 

Of course, it’s the better Gloria I am referring to.  Here, she sports the “Mano po” hairdo.

Meanwhile, the other Gloria, the one we love to hate, seems to have a bad hair day.

Ako naman e bumili ng tatlong box ng Tikoy sa paniniwalang pampadikit ‘yun ng suwerte (read: pera).  Mas masuwerte pa daw sana kung ireregalo sa’yo ito.  Kaya lang, wala namang nagbigay sa akin kaya ako na lang ang mamimigay sa iba.  Buti pa noong nagtuturo pa ako sa Manila, andami kong natatanggap .  Hindi bale, marami namang nagregalo sa akin ng tupig dito sa Ilocos noong Disyembre, hehehe.

But wait, my friend Byron, a pure Chinese, told me that eating Tikoy does not really attract good luck.  Rather, it symbolizes family solidarity.  Ok na rin.

Kung hei fat choi, karikna.  Wishing you peace and prosperity in the year of the Earth Ox.

    While we are celebrating, being grateful for all they good things we have and basking in the warmth of our loved ones, let us do one more thing.

    Please pray for a lady, her 3 children, her husband and their parents. Remember to also pass the requests around to all your friends and through your blog.

  2. mas masarap kaya ang tupig sa tikoy.

  3. donna

    Pampaswerte nga ba? Wala ka bang chinese students? Pero mas masarap nga ang tupig. Lalo na kung bagong luto…hmmm.

  4. Herdy La. Yumul

    Wala atang Chinese e, puro native chicken lahat.
    Actually, I raffled-off one box of tikoy.

    Masarap yung kaluluto na tupig, yung malambot, tapos may kinayod na niyog.

    Ang maganda sa tikoy e madami nang flavor. Yesterday we had ube, buko pandan, and the original.

  5. Binigyan mo pa ko ng recipe. hehe! Salamat.

  6. dhomz

    yeh!!nice topic..at last i tasted tikoy last night…masarap naman…matamis..heheh.

    Kahit anong klaseng damit ang isuot ni PGMA hindi na niya matatakpan ang masama niyang imahe,. Kahit pa siguro isuot niya ang damit ni MAMA MARY magmumukha parin siyang demonyo!

    sabi nga “man in nature is evil!”

    That is good for Gloria to have new look but people are more interested for the new good image of Gloria not physically but more on her attitudes that makes our country more progressive and develop. Her haircut does not affect our economy. It’s just a wasteful thing for Gloria anyway!!! Gloria is gloria. She can’t change her bad image with her people by her “Kung Hei Fat Choi” haircut.

    This is actually my first time to have a glance into a blog therefore this is my first time also to post a comment. . (haha)
    Thanks for having such Sir because we as your fellow ILOCANO’s are very amazed….(sipsip!) …
    Anyway TIKOY is not popular in Ilocos that is why don’t be shocked if you did not received any during the Chineese new year. We are not Chineese sir, masarap din naman po yong TUPIG diba? Hehe (palusot nang mga kuripot na ilokano). San po pala kayu bumili ng Tikoy?

    May I take this opportunity Sir to insert my opinion and research about our discussion last Wednesday about “is man is naturally good/evil?” I red this information in the book of Don Clowers. Since the fall of man, every person has been born with a sinful nature; our bodies live under the curse of sin. They get sick. They age. They die. BUT even though sin separated man from God, He provided a way back….(Romans 5:12, 15-19 NLT)

  9. donna

    Herdy, dami na nga daw flavors ang tikoy. My chinese friend who lives in Binondo was giving me tikoy every chinese new year before. Alam ko lang iyong original eh. Gusto kong matikman ang ube. Sarap siguro siya ano?

    • Herdy La. Yumul

      I still prefer the original flavor. Ube is good for a change, but buko pandan is better. How about bubble gum flavor?

  10. Donna

    Bubble gum flavor? You are kidding, right? Ano kaya lasa non?

  11. Donna

    Ha..ha..di ko pa natitkman but it sounds awful….

  12. Even PGMA wear red dress and Kung Hei Fat Choi haircut but her attitude will not change, Philippines is always on crisis. Kahit anong isusuot niya at anong gupit, hindi na magbabago ang kalagayan ng Pilipinas. Kahit sinasabing pampasuerte ito, hindi natatalab sa kanya, hehehe! 🙂

  13. joy anN

  15. Erika

    khit anung gawin ni gloria to her self kahit mag pahaircut pa dyan o kya gumwa ng comersial hnd parin magbabago patingi ng tao sa kanya na isang kurakut and she is evil. And sarili lng niya iniisip niya

  16. ang masasaba kulang . hindi naman madadaan sa pagkain ng tikoy ang nagpapatabay sa isang pamilya . kunda ang pagkakaisa at pagmamahalan ng bawat isa.

  17. so cool……

    naks kahit ilang tikoy ang bibilhin niya, kahit mag damit pa siya ng kung ano ano ……para lang lumapit ang swerte..pero..ang swerte na ata ang lumalayo sa pinas. wala na sigurong mangyayari pah sa pinas papalubog at papalobog na tayo dahil sa crisis…at kurapsyon…jejejejeje for me man in nature is good but because of envirolmental influence man is becoming as an evil,,,,

  18. hay kakawa naman si gloria kahit anung gawin niya sa sarili niya hindi parin siya gusto
    ng tao…masarap po ba ang tikoy

  19. kahat gaano karami ng tikoy na kainin ni GMA… di parin magbabago ang pamumuhay ng mga toa sa Philippinas, mahirap paren…..

  20. its just only a beliefs……
    may be kahit ilang tikoy pa ang bilhin o nairegalo sa kanya eh hindi na darating ang swerte baka ang swerte na rin ang lalayo sa kanya o kaya sa pinas

  21. i think PGMA ,kh8 anung gnagawa nya d2 sa pilipinas di na mgba2go dhil sa kanyang pg uugaling masama,kh8 mgdamit ng maganda mukha pa rin eVil……hahaha…

  23. annierose

    .gloria will always be gloria,d na magbabago kahit na ano pa ang bibilhin niyang pampaswerte! well, actually swerte na siya eh, sa dinami-dami ba manan ng kanyang nakurakot. Parang magnet na nga ang kanyang kamay eh. So balewala na ang pagkain niya ng malalagkit na pagkain. Mapatikoy man or what so ever na malagkit.

  24. annierose

    .Gloria will always be Gloria! Whatever she wear nor she ate! AhMMM. talaga namang swerete sya eh. Sa dinami rami ba naman ng perang kanyang nakurakot. Her hands are magnetic, especially when it comes to money matters. And I think she can buy people just to mapanakip ang mga ginagawa niya. Guys! KUNG HEI FAT CHOI!

  25. Luv Jhoy A.

  28. ramos

    ..for me..my beliefs is that only God knows our future..jeremiah 29:11 says that
    for i know the plans for you; not to destroy and harm you nor to prosper you and give future and hope..
    and i believe in this promise of God..

  29. Gay marie
