A Dash of Life's Humor from the Kikay Barkada and the Internet Action Star [☝]Friday, February 22, 2013
Along the road of life, sometimes we need a break and just slow down and smell the flowers around, think less and look at life in a frivolous way, but still learn the meaning of life.
Earlier this year, two books helped me laugh out and relax a bit amid the stress of my young adult life - The Best of Chico, Delamar & Gino's The Morning Rush Top 10 Book 2 and Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo? These two novelty books have this common approach of looking at the funny side of life and addressing problems in a not-so-serious way.
The Best of Chico, Del and Gino's The Morning Rush Top 10 Book 2
This morning radio show of three of the best jocks around has gone a long way in entertaining people they call "rushers" in coping every morning's stress in, may it be, going to school, to work, or just traveling in the early hours of the morning. This book is the second installment of the best topics that they've had on-air.
|Team Book 2! I gave the other copy to my bestfriend. :D|
I'm a big fan of the show. I went to the book signing of their first book and even visited them on the booth during their show. They're a bunch of dorks that has a lot of things to say about life. To add on that, they have loads of very loyal listeners that are the senders of the entries that are written in this book. Actually, this book did not really come from these three DJs, but it's all from the rusher community. It's a compilation of brilliant ideas full of wit and wisdom. This is the best book to give to people that you think needs a break and some cheering up, because laughter will always be the best medicine. :)
Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?
Just the title of the book would make anyone curious about this. I'm also a fan of sir Ramon's humor, and I follow his internet love triangle -- Twitter, Formspring, and Tumblr (but now it's a square love triangle already, include his Instagram. xD).
Two years ago, through a colleague I discovered his Formspring account. I saw a lot of people asking him about random stuff about life, but the majority of the questions concerned about love. Heck, his formspring page suddenly served as a refuge for people (especially teens and juveniles) whom, because of this sickness we call love, has gone crazy and confused and needs assistance in choosing the right decision to make. Hats off to sir Ramon, because though he delivers his advices in a witty sort of manner, there lies wisdom behind them. All the best questions together with the best answers published in his formspring account are compiled and printed in this book. Even if you already have been an avid follower of this infamous internet action star, this book will still tickle your humor bones(?) cause it also includes images of Ramon Bautista on every page.
Reading these books can give that laughter that we need once in a while. Dig in and enjoy. :D
