10 Classic Life Lessons From Tita Witty
You might have seen the Tita Witty love advice column in The Philippine Star, where romantic hopefuls write to Antoinette Jadaone—otherwise known as Tita Witty—and get answers to soothe their aching hearts.
Before Jadaone became popular with the films she directed (English Only Please, That Thing Called Tadhana), she had already captured Filipinos with her witty comebacks in the “I-was-supposed-to-get-that-coffeehouse-planner-but-I-got-fat-on-the-10th-frappe” Planner 2010.
Now, Tita Witty has a number of journals under her belt as she comforts the Pinoy soul, one piece of advice at a time. Here are some of the best advice culled from her Twitter page.
2When someone does not return your text or calls, he’s more likely not into you. Get over it.
He's just not that into you, 'te. Hindi siya presidente ng Pilipinas para maging ganun ka-busy.

3Not everything is about your love life. Now why don’t you just think of other things… like hailing a cab, for example.

Papayat ka rin at dudurugin sila, indeed.
6Exhibit social graces in cafes, no matter how excited you are with your first frappe.
'Wag kang masyadong maingay sa Starbucks. Kape lang ang binili mo, hindi ang buong coffeeshop.
