"Regardless of how or why English came to The Philippines, it IS the language of international business and tourism. To ignore it and lose competence for the sake of some childish 'national identity' is simply stupid."
"Why are we so addicted to scandalous themes like extramarital affairs, teen pregnancies and cruel jokes? As I asked in my previous article about Lea Salonga, haven’t we got anything else to offer? Don’t we have any soap operas that don’t involve an affair?"
There has been much hullabaloo about the party celebration of MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino, most of which is chronicled by my good friend ChinoF over here. I wrote a previous piece about the innate perversion of typical Pinoys in this article here but, like with my more scathing statements, was met with considerable skepticism. There ...Read the Rest
There’s a perverse type of pleasure people with a lot of time in their hands derive with simply prowling the endless frontiers of cyberspace in search of “worthy” causes as a platform to give people a piece of their valuable opinions on things. Or for some, just grabbing the popcorn and soda to simply sit ...Read the Rest
"This only lends support to my theory that the Filipino identity is actually centered on anything dysfunctional. If you are non-dysfunctional, have healthy control over your sex life and aren’t clamoring for 'malaswang' shows like the above, then you might be branded as unpatriotic."
Filipino social media was all abuzz when pictures of a Liberal Party birthday celebration were spread all over the place. At this celebration of Congressman Benjie Agarao, sexy dancing girls called the Playgirls suddenly came up on the stage and did things that should have been done only in shady strip clubs. It was claimed ...Read the Rest
When will Filipinos stop being such pussies about their future? At the moment, they are in the midst of a frenzy to nominate people who are all about the past and offer nothing to the future. As if it weren’t enough that Filipinos find some sort of perverse comfort in dwelling in the past, they ...Read the Rest
"Nowhere in the whole moronic debate that surrounds the question of who is most qualified to be president of the Philippines is there any attention put into whether these bozos can actually solve problems. The Philippines, in case Filipino voters have forgotten, has lots of problems. As such, Filipinos need problem solvers."
‘Sacrifice’. Just like all other noble concepts, this is a word Filipinos have all but perverted and put into the service of their dysfunctional politics. If we are to believe Liberal Party presidential candidate Mar Roxas, the most important thing a candidate for the top leadership positions in the country brings to the table is ...Read the Rest
"I don’t know about my fellow citizens (like in U.P. where they are translating entire science courses into Tagalog – looks like a waste of time/effort to me; focus on fixing your research instead guys), but I am a proponent of bringing back Filipinos’ level of English to that in the glory days of our parents a generation ago…"
Through the years, I have witnessed the steady decline of Filipinos in about almost everything they used to be good at, and one area is in their command of the English language. While neighboring countries like Korea and Japan have only recently realized the great value of this de-facto language of choice in today’s highly ...Read the Rest
"The measure of beauty here is sexiness and not inner beauty. The bad thing here is that it influences innocent little girls that being sexy is more important than their character, and for boys, being virile or having a lot of sexual partners is the most important..."
"As a Brazilian friend told me, denying our sexuality only makes it worse. As a metaphor, you can think of people stuck on a boat in the sea with no supply of fresh water. Filipinos torture themselves with sexual themes but go to great lengths to deny that they feel any kind of sexual desire for anything."
PERVERT! There, I had to say it. How did you feel? I’m sure there are those of you who probably got angry almost immediately. If that’s the case, then that at least means I have your attention. Anyway, this article is more or less a response to ChinoF’s latest article that showcases the blatant vulgarity ...Read the Rest
As of late, Lea Salonga had a few scathing statements that were largely misunderstood by the general public again. Similar to what happened in a previous incident wherein she questioned the significance of Philippine Independence Day and whether or not we should be really be celebrating it at all, there has once again been an ...Read the Rest
