It seems even the restless need their down time. Ethel Booba took a break from her usual witty yet hard-hitting tweets last June 9 when she indulged her fans and invited them to engage in conversation with her on Twitter — granted that their questions for her be funny.

It didn’t take long for the inquiries to pour in, and Ethel finally got to work on the questions, and answering each one in her familiar tongue-in-cheek responses, topped off with her signature “Charot!”


The first question was from a certain Kandy (@kandy35715808), who asked her for advice on how to forget a certain person: “Miss Ethel [paano] ba malimutan ang isang tao?

Utangan mo siya,” replied Ethel. “Once di ka na makabayad kusa mo syang makakalimutan at iiwasan. Charot!


(Borrow money from him. Once you can no longer pay him, you will eventually forget and evade him.)

One Alvin (@AlvinRey13) asked Ethel how she would convince an atheist that there is a god: “@IamEthylGabison Okay, let me try! How would you convince an atheist that God does Exist?”


“Try nila ako kausapin hanggang mapa Oh My God sila. Charot!” replied Ethel.

(They can try talking to me until they go, “Oh my god.” Charot!)

Meanwhile, one netizen (@lalunerouge_) asked her a situational question: “If you were given a chance to become beautiful but not too smart or very smart but not too beautiful, what would you prefer to be and why?”


Cheekily, Ethel answered that she would choose the latter: “Very smart but not too beautiful. I will use my brain to study well so I can earn money then once I have enough money, hello plastic surgery. Charot!

Another netizen, a certain Perci (@perciparas) asked Ethel if there would ever be a possibility of her joining politics: “May chance ba na tumakbo kayo sa pulitika?

Wala,” Ethel admitted. “Showbiz nga stressful na, sa politika pa kaya. Charot!

(None. Showbiz alone is stressful, what more for politics? Charot!)

One Cyrus (@williamcyrus_co) also did not hold back in asking Ethel about affairs of the carnal: “Do you think love making should be anywhere, not just in bed?”

“Making love in bed is overrated,” Ethel replied. “Try mo minsan sa loob ng washing machine. Charot!” (Try it sometime inside a washing machine. Charot!)

Apart from her funny antics in the Q&A, Ethel also had some serious moments, one of which was when a netizen asked her how she coped after her sex video scandal years ago was put out in the ether.

Ateng, paano ka naka survive after nung scandal mo noon with the basketball guy?” asked the netizen (@Shagamy). “Sure it’s inspiring!”

(How did you survive after your scandal with the basketball guy? Sure, it’s inspiring.)

Ethel first admitted that it was embarrassing, in her usual humorous way: “Syempre nakakahiya dahil halos lahat nakita na paano mo bulatlatin ang sangyupsal mo diba?

(Of course it was shameful because almost everyone saw how to get into your samgyeopsal, right?)

Pero sabi nga nila time heals all wounds and nag work sya sa akin,” added Ethel.

(But time heals all wounds and that worked for me.)

And lastly she shared a survival trick: “I make fun of my own scandal na din (too) so they can’t use it against me. Charot!” JB
