#ManilaEncounters: Why we are scared and yet laughing

By: - 03/05/2019

WE are so glued to #ManilaEncounters tweets.

E, paano ka ba naman hindi ma-aadik sa mga tweet dito.  Filipinos, young and old, are actually good in horror-story telling.  Imagine ang isang nakakatakot na kwento ay naisasalaysay nila in 280 characters or less!  Saan ka pa?

Hindi lang kami doon nagugulat, kundi doon sa mga istorya mismo nila from scary to extra scary to outright funny! Yung iba nga napo-politicized pa.

Kung totoo man ang mga kwento doon, ikaw na ang bahalang tumimbang.

Nagsimula ang #ManilaEncounters sa isang thread sa Twitter.  And since then naging bukang-bibig na ito ng mga feel na feel makabasa ng mga kakaibang kwento.

Here are some tweets that could give your creeps:

‘Sayang’

From the past

Vape

Bayani

Magsasaka

Future you

Helmet

Hero totems

Best friend

Habol

ATM

Kanta

“Bayad po”
