I had a lot of fun reading through the list of local gay lingo and definitions posted in PinoyExchange.com which certainly added the much needed realism to the way Jessica's character would speak. Stringing it together though posted a real challenge, because not everything I needed was posted there so I had to invent some of them words (like the one in panel 2). I had to get the right balance of words and grammar without sacrificing the punchline (which is a lot like constructing a joke out of a phrase using another language that I'm not familiar with). I'm not sure if I got it all right.
