Bookworm Review: Suplado Tips in Daily Experiences

"Suplado Tips" is a humor book written by cartoonist, stand-up comedian and writer Stanley Chi. This small, brown book is composed of a foreword by comedian and newscaster Ramon Bautista, one hundred suplado tips, ten supladong hirit, ten suplado commandments, five suplado meter signs and a suplado quiz. Suplado Tips costs only P95.00. Although it is affordable and cheap because of paper quality, Suplado Tips is one of a kind because of the author's candor in delivering punchlines and tips in this book.

Suplado is a Tagalog word for snobbish and the tips written in this book are practical in terms of dealing with situations which irritate, annoy or pressure us. Here are the list of situations where Suplado Tips are applicable.

1. My most favorite part in this book is dealing in worst-case scenario in your workplace such as office gossips, insecure people, laziness and tardiness, and arrogance of your boss or team leader.
  • Kung may officemate kang maingay at walang ginagawa during office hours, hiritan mo ng "LAHAT KAMI DITO BUSY SA TRABAHO!" para pag narinig ng Boss mo iisipin niya na lahat kayo masipag at yung kasama niyong maingay ang tamad!
  • Kung hina-hassle ka ng isang tao, sungitan mo para makahanap siya ng katapat niya.
  • Kung may inutos sayo ang Boss mo pero kaya naman niyang gawin hiritan mo ng "Ano na lang mangyayari sayo kung wala ako?"
  • Kung marami kang ginagawa at nakatunganga lang ang officemate mo paringgan mo ng "Buti pa ang mga ibang tao nagpapaka-busy yung iba dyan papetiks-petiks lang!" 
2. In spending our time in social networking sites such as Facebook and Yahoo and even in texting, there are situations which irritate us because of too much addiction in texting and internet surfing of a person.
  • Kung may nag-text sayo pero di mo kilala kung sino siya dahil hindi nakaregister ang number sa cellphone mo, replayan mo ng "HUS DIS PLS?" at pag nagdrama siya ng "BINURA MO NA NUMBER KO?" hiritan mo ng "OO MATAGAL NA!"
  • Kung panay ang tag sayo sa mga videos at photos na hindi ka naman kasali... I-delete mo kaagad sa Facebook yung contact mo!
  • Kung may comment ng comment sa Facebook status mo na nakakainis, I-UNFRIEND mo tapos i-ban mo kaagad sa Facebook.
3. Suplado Tips are also applicable in dating or having relationships.
  • Kung tinanong mo sa ka-date mo "Anong gusto mong kainin?" Pag sinagot niyang "KAHIT ANO" bigyan mo siya ng biscuit at tubig pag nagreklamo siya hiritan mo ng "Labo mong kausap sabi mo kahit ano tapos ngayon nag-rereklamo ka!"
  • Kung ayaw mong mabasted ng babe, huwag kang manligaw!
4. Even in daily conversations and mingling with people around you, we cannot avoid to look on unusual and irritating people or situations
  • Kapag sinabihan ka ng kakilala mo na "Ang suplado mo naman!" hiritan mo ng "Sige bigyan mo ako ng rason para hindi kita supladuhan" sabay walk-out para hindi na siya maka-hirit ulit.
  • Kung nakikinig ka ng radyo at biglang nakikisabay sa pagkanta yung kasama mo, hiritan mo ng "Nakikinig ako ng radyo para marinig yung boses ng singer at hindi yung boses mo!"
  • May mga taong puro sarili lang niya ang gusto niyang pag-usapan o kaya naman pag nagkukuwentuhan gusto niya siya lagi ang bida, kailangan sa mga ganyan hinihiritan ng "Hindi umiikot sa'yo ang mundo!"
  • Kung may nagtanong sayo kung sino at ano ang trabaho mo, hjritan mo ng GOOGLE ME!
  • Huwag kang makikipagplastikan kahit kanino, kung asar ka sa kakilala mo ipakita mo!
These Suplado Tips are funny and sometimes, it happens in real-life situation especially the annoying scenarios to deal with. Kudos to the book and to Mr. Stanley Chi! Therefore, after the launch of the first book, there are new sets of Suplado Tips posted in Facebook account of Mr.Chi which signals the sequel of the book. He truly deserves to have a sequel of it because if Jose Rizal's Noli Me Tangere has El Filibusterismo and Bob Ong's ABNKKBSANPLAko? has Bakit Baligtad Magbasa ng Libro ang mga Pilipino? and if Chopsticks has three books published,  well this is it Stanley, you have the sequel now of your bestselling book. Here are the new set of tips:
  • Pag nanonood ng basketball game sa TV at inaasar ka ng kasama mo dahil lamang ang team na kinakampihan niya... Smile ka lang pero mag-cheer ka ng mas malakas kapag natalo ang team niya.

  • Kung sinabihan ka ng boss mo ng "Magresign ka na kung magreresign ka!" Magwalk-out ka at huwag ka nang pumasok, huwag mo na din tapusin ang trabaho mo para mataranta silang lahat! Pero kunin mo ang suweldo mo dahil pinaghirapan mo yan.
Excited to look forward to Suplado Tips 2.0!
