How Do You React When Someone Asks You, “Tumaba Ka Ba?”

“Bes, tumaba ka ba?” (Friend, did you gain weight?)

“Bes, ang taba mo na!” (Friend, you’ve gotten bigger!)

We’ve all heard these two statements and their countless variations one way or another. Take it from me, a girl who gained weight significantly in the span of just one year. I can no longer count how many times I’ve heard it.

Perhaps I’ve been told these things waaaay more than my failed attempts to lose weight.

I know how annoying these statements can get sometimes, so when I stumbled upon Ashley Rivera’s video about it, it hit me right in the feels. Lol!

If your weight gain is also constantly being noticed, I’m sure you’d find this video extra hilarious.

What’s your usual response to “tumaba ka” ?
