As a tita of the future, which amiga will you be?
Three titas of Manila broke the Internet yesterday ℅ Ellie Centeno’s Twitter account, @ForEllice, and we’re still not over it, to be honest. Below, we’ve characterized the three heroines of the #CoffeeOrChupa story just because we feel that they embody the whole tita-hood perfectly.
Amiga #1 is a sensible woman who rationalizes her actions.
“Honestly, I can’t believe I slept with him pero I had so much wine kasi!”
Sadly, she does this after said action has been done. But that doesn’t mean she’s just gonna drop something with regret in her heart!
“Anyway, I agreed to meet up with Rolly later for coffee. To clear the air lang!”
#1 is what can be classified as a Thirsty Tita because a girl, no matter the age, has needs, you know!
“Maybe it’s because busy din kasi si Alfie lately with Novartis. I have needs!”
She’s got her Beyonce game down pat even until now because she’s not afraid of embracing her sexuality and that’s something everyone should learn from her/his tita!
Amiga #2 is, admittedly, the ultimate #titagoals: straightforward, fun, and witty asf.
“Coffee ba talaga yan or chupa?”
She’s the type of tita who will most probably smoke cigarettes with you and give you a G-string or a vibrator for Christmas as a gag gift.
“Konti nalang papatahi ko na yang kepyas mo, Raquel! (laughs)”
When we were kids, we learned our first swear words from #2 just because she’s not afraid to drop some F-bombs every time something remotely exciting happens. After all, curse words are only as powerful as the meaning we give them, right?
Amiga #3 is a cool disciplinarian by heart.
She’s the type of tita who will drop truth bombs as casually as Miley Cyrus takes off her clothes for a magazine cover and there’s nothing wrong with both, tbh. We all need the harsh truth sometimes. We envision #3 as the chill friend who will casually make you question your life choices but still let you live your life as you see fit because after all…
“Buhay mo yan, Raquel. More importantly, pepe mo yan.” (Amiga # 3 dropping truth bombs all over Starbucks.)
Which path to tita-hood are you taking?
