“Mas gusto ni mudra si Aljur kesa kay Atom.”
And one of our friends replied,
Seriously?!?!?! No offense but ano yan? Yumaman na’t lahat-lahat pero hindi ang taste? I cringe!
Prude conservatives are GUILTY with that!
In fact, we don’t care if Atom has the looks. Granted, “gwapo” siya according to many people, but he is basically known to be a very good reporter and a documentarist (plus na lang ang good looks kasi nga, batang-bata ang hitsura niya). Walang ganyan ang NHK tsaka KBS, I tell you! Not even the “good-looking reporter” who did his stint in Thailand can’t match Atom’s qualifications.
In fact, Kapuso Warriors is now making fun of Aljur Abrenica, and of course, glorifying Atom Araullo’s transfer.
Again, hindi kami Kapamilya o Kapuso; it so happens that Kapuso network is better in news reporting… and documentary presentation. Meanwhile, Kapamilya is good in managing their talents (no shit na iyan, ah!), kaya lumipat si Toni Gonzaga sa Dos, ‘di po ba?
There you have it!
Back to taste naman… speaking of Aljur vs. Atom, there’s no need for comparison at all—in fact, si Atom, may napatunayan; he made a name of his own the hard way. However, Aljur!? OMG, I kennat! Siya ang HARI ng BANÔ sa pagtatanghal!
The prude conservatives have baduy taste! Kung mas gwapo pa nga sa kanila si Aljur Abrenica tsaka Jeron Teng, inom na lang ako ng Zonrox! Tutal naman, their poor and cheap taste is a true testament that MONEY CANNOT BUY CLASS—in all aspects possible!
Buti pa nga ang mga nag-aasawa ng mga magbibigay ng magagandang lahi, they knew what’s best for ’em, and at the same time, they knew that it’s never good to settle for less. Speaking of the old rich, they have high standards, rich and expensive taste, and they settle for more. Best example? Chris Tiu.
Granted, he may be an elitist dude, yet his elitist mentality makes more sense than the self-proclaimed pussies who wear their “coño” tag, LOUD AND PROUD! The reason why they’re called “CONYO,” is because they speak like a total pussy!
I bet, Chris Tiu will be the only dude who will say negative thoughts on celebrities like Cristine Reyes. It shows, he has good taste. Sus! Kwento nga sakin, may aura siya ng pagiging elitista, when he was interviewed on “tips for girls” sa CandyMag, eh! So, iyun.
And… if you so happen to have poor and cheap taste, chances are, you might possibly be a bobotante! Never forget the fact that the “bobotante” mentality does not even discriminate! Heck, even licensed professionals aren’t immune to having that so-called mentality that allows people to vote for undeserving solons. At sila pa ang defensive, ah!
Example: If you idolize Maja Salvador and Cristine Reyes (when it comes to a record of relationships), chances are you’ll be voting for Tito Sotto and Manny Pacquiao, for sure! It’s the same when you prefer Aljur Abrenica over Atom Araullo!
Also, having poor and cheap taste means, you are a COWARD! Sus! Huwag ako pagdating sa mga whistleblowers versus sa mga elitistang pumapatay sa mga inosenteng mga asawa nila, huh! Ang mga miyembro ng hukuman, tumanggap lang sila ng suhol sa mga gahaman sa pera, hindi magdadalawang-isip ang justice system na protektahan sila, samantalang ang mga whistleblowers, binabatikos ng mga prudista! Bueno, kaya kung may Julian Assange tsaka Edward Snowden sa Pinas, malamang mala-laos sila! Buti na lang, may Marlene Aguilar, na handang ipagtanggol ang mga Pilipino!
Takot na takot sa mga tiwali, ngunit anlakas batikusin ang mga whistleblower!
Iyan ang tunay na halimbawa ng despalinghado ang panlasa!
No wonder, if we allow Jeff Cudia or Krisel Mallari to be persecuted, while letting
Dalia Guerrero-Pastor or Sheldon Arcenas to escape, and not sparing Antonio Trillanes IV to do the same bullshit, Filipinos will remain passive towards corruption. Bueno, all throughout history, Filipinos, before they’re called as such, tolerated the corruption, care of the Spanish inmates from maximum detention who pretended to be civil guards, priests, and friars. Also, the prude conservative old folks inherited the hypocrisy of the Spaniards.
Kaya pala, Sean Akizuki, through his blog, said, “Spanish is a useless language.” One even said, “It’s a poor man’s language.”
Side Note: Well, I don’t find Spanish useless if you’re planning to invest in Latin America (truth is, many people prefer French, and a lot of Spanish-speaking American countries will regard English as the “money language,” according to Barby). Thing is, Spanish culture originally came from the Moors—or Arabs who came to Spain from North Africa. Therefore, Spanish history has Arab influence. Also, take note, the Arabs pa naman, compared to Jews, they’re quite disorganized. So, ALAM NA!!!
In fact, having poor and cheap taste often results to settling for less, besides having low standards. So, your wealth translates to NOTHING, if your taste is shit! Remember, Marlene Aguilar shared that her daughter Maya was told by her classmate, “My million-dollar gown looks sh*t, compared to yours.”
Buti pa nga si Marlene Aguilar, she balances the gap—while she has good taste in bags, and often shares that she only travels business class, she doesn’t mind eating poor people’s food. Iyung mga kagaya ng mga elitista sa GirlTalk, kaya ba nila iyan!?
Remember, Marlene Aguilar used to be a green card holder—and she fought for the fact that she will remain a Filipino citizen, and hold her Philippine passport loud and proud. For the Nth time, kung sino pa nga ang nananatiling green card holder (kadalasan, Pinoy), kahit matagal nang nanirahan sa Estados Unidos, sila pa nga ang may bukas na pag-iisip. Eh, iyung mga Pilipinong naging American citizen, ganun din ba ang mentalidad!?
Also, take note ah: Kung sino pa nga ang mga may passport na hindi naman ganun ka-powerful (colloquially known as “third-world” passport), sila pa ang nakakapag-afford ng fine-dining, o nakakapag-check in sa mga mamahaling hotel, o ‘di kaya sa mga cottages (na mas mahal pa nga kesa sa tipikal na 5-star hotel). Samantalang kung sino pa nga ang may “first-world” na passport, sila pa ang cheapskate (in a negative sense). Ang mga cheapskate in a good sense, kadalasan iyung mga backpackers.
Okay, this is based on someone’s observation, ni-relay lang sakin. Yeah, third-world passport pero nakaka-afford kumain sa mga five-star resto ng mga native cuisine, at iyun ay dahil siyempre, mahal ang visa kaya! Sure, you have Schengen visa, US visa, Japanese visa, and all other types of visas, because that’s one proof that may pera ka talagang ipapakita. Eh, iyung mga may first-world passport kasi, that’s because hindi sila nag-o-overstay. Remember, overstaying is a mortal SIN—believe it or not, kaya nawawalan ng power tsaka dignity ang pasaporte ay dahil na rin sa economic factors, bukod pa sa reciprocity policy tsaka bilang ng mga nagti-TNT na mga nationals.
Also, having rich and expensive taste isn’t necessarily measured pagdating sa pabonggahan, tsaka pa-sosyal-an. Remember, GirlTalkers would often brag about their first-world passport, and of course, the fact that nakakapag-biyahe na sila sa kanluraning bahagi ng mundo, ngunit kulang pa: They cannot even afford to own luxury stuff, like the Pacquiao’s. Granted, mukha rin namang social climber sina Jinkee tsaka Mother Dionisia, ngunit infairness naman, they enjoy the fruits of Manny Pacquiao’s hardwork as a boxer.
It shows that a lot of Filipinos still have a long way to go, when it comes to improving their taste. In fact, daig pa tayo ng mga Indiano, eh! Recently, yumaman ang India tsaka marami na silang nai-ambag sa larangan ng inobasyon tsaka teknolohiya! Also, ang mga artista sa Bollywood pa naman, speaking of fashion taste, they combine traditional fashion with modernity in a glamorous way.
On top of that, wealth isn’t only exclusive to a high personal or family income—it could also mean, doing it the old rich way. Alam niyo na iyan!
