HappySlip – A Filipina

 

I’m not sure if you heard the word HappySlip. But if you’re a YouTube fanatic, you will probably heard of HappySlip. Christine Gambito, better known by her screen name HappySlip, is an Internet celebrity and popular YouTube content provider. She maintains one of YouTube’s most subscribed channels. And guess what? Christine is a Filipina.

Christine attributes her nickname “HappySlip” to her Filipina mother’s mispronunciation of “half slip”:

“ As a child, my Filipina mom would always remind me to wear a half-slip with skirts. However, the way she would pronounce the phrase was misleading: “Your hap e-slip! Be sure to wear your hap e-slip!” So I naturally went around calling the thing a ‘happy slip,’ until friends at school corrected me by asking if I had a ‘sad slip’ as well. ”

At her personal site, she explains that the phrase is not only a funny phrase from the past, but it also reflects what she would like people to feel when they watch her videos, hoping they will “slip into happiness” while watching.

Christine’s performances typically include comedy sketches in which she impersonates members of her family. She also sings and plays the piano or guitar. As Christine has stated repeatedly in her videos, she is notably one of the very few top users acting, filming, editing and producing her shorts completely on her own.

Christine was appointed ambassador for Philippine tourism by the Department of Tourism. Recently, she visited Philippines to explore & experience the beauty of this paradise.
