“Don’t judge my brother, he’s not a book” and other Melanie Marquez quotable quotes

This morning at breakfast, Joy and I had the laugh of our life. While reading the newspaper, Joy came to read Ricky Lo’s Philippine Star entertainment article. He gave a sample of a suggested book that would be another best seller after “Eraption”.

Here’re some actual quotes from Melanie Marquez, the former Miss International, also a self confessed Madame Malaprop. (Note: Malapropism, meaning “a ludicrous misuse of a word”). It’ll make your day.

* * *

My brother is not a girl; he’s a gentleman.

* * *

That’s why I’m a success, it’s because I don’t middle in other people’s lives.

* * *

Don’t judge my brother; he’s not a book.

* * *

I won’t stoop down to my level.

* * *

Hello? Bulag ka ba? Bingi ka ba? Are you dep?

* * *

‘Yung STD, baka sa maruming toilet lang niya nakuha yan.

* * *

Eh, ikaw ba naman, durugin ang ari mo… Pag di ka naman manutok ng baril.

* * *

We are lovers, not fighters.

* * *

Kapatid ko pa rin siya. We are one and the same.

* * *

I don’t eat meat. I’m not a carnival.

* * *

Eto na po ang pinakamaligayang pasko at manigong taon sa inyong lahat. (During her acceptance speech at a Metro Filmfest awards night where her bioflick, directed by her late father Temyong Marquez, won an award.)

* * *

Sumasakit ang migraine ko.

* * *

Ang tatay ko ang only living legend na buhay!

* * *

Period na talaga; wala nang exclamation point. (When asked on S-Files if her present husband, Adam Lawyer, is her Mr. Right.).

* * *

(This one’s our favorite. When Joy read this, we literally laughed our lungs out for more than 1 minute with Johann looking amazed, probably wondering what’s happening to his parents)

At a talk show after her break-up with Derek Dee, Melanie was asked if she had some words for Derek’s mother (whom she partly blamed for the separation). “Oo nga,” said Melanie, “pero i-English-in ko para maintindihan niya.” She looked into the camera and, with the peremptoriness of royalty, said, “And to you, Mrs. Dee, I have two words for you. Ang labo mo!

Ooops, don’t judge Melanie. As you know, she’s not a book. :)

    Nakakatuwa si Melanie mag english kaya lalo syang minamahal ng mga pinoy. Napanuod ko sa Tv na she’s taking up law at the Arellano University. Good for her. Her last statement from the show where she was interviewed was “I’m taking law slowly, not fast.”

    Melanie brought honor to our country when she bagged the Miss International title. 'Wag sana nating kalimutan yan. Yung iba diyan magaling ngang mag-english pero di nila narating ang at least kalahati sa mga na-achieve ni Melanie. I love her! ;-)
