There’s this Maggi Magic Meals commercial in which a man has a friend over at his house. Apparently, his friend has just arrived from wherever the hell he was abroad, and the friend said he missed eating Bicol express. The man said no problem, his wife can totally whip one up for him. “Di ba, hon?” he asks his wife. In true commercial wife mode, the woman made use of Maggi Magic Meals to cook the requested meal.
In real life, that conversation could have gone differently. “Why did you volunteer me without asking my permission? I just got home from work and I’m too tired to cook.” “Why don’t you just take him out for a meal? Papagurin mo pa ‘ko, leche.” “YOU cook it.”
