DARE I SAY IT: Bobotante people who voted for Sotto and Pacquiao deserve to be victims of genocide

To those who voted for Tito Sotto and Manny Pacquiao: Sana kayo na lang ang nakaranas ng sinapit sa mga sumusunod na pangyayari ng kasaysayan ng daigdig:

1.) Jewish Holocaust
2.) Armenian Genocide
3.) Rwandan Genocide
4.) Rohingya crisis
5.) Khmer rouge

Side Note: NO OFFENSE to the Jews, Armenians, Cambodians, Rwandans, and the Rohingya people…

I also believe that those who voted for Sotto and Pacquiao were also pro-Marcos DDS (most of them, if not all).

My friend and I are both pro-Marcos DDS, but we don’t resort to BOBOTANTE mentality. You know why? Kaya lang pro-Marcos sina Sotto tsaka Pacman is because… well, dikit naman sila ng dikit kay BongBong. You all know that BBM does not discriminate when he offers help. He can basically extend a helping hand to everyone, even those to the Marcos’s political enemies. Still, that does not make us pro-Sotto or pro-Pacquiao, even though we are pro-Marcos.

Kapag ayaw kaagad kay Pacquiao, DILAWAN na kaagad? ELITISTA na kaagad? TROJAN HORSE kaagad? Heto na naman tayo, eh! You think, hindi tunay na loyalist ang isang tao kapag anti-Pacquiao sila KAAGAD.

It only shows how narrow-minded, even the loyalists are. No wonder, anlakas niyong tawaging mga “TROJAN HORSE” sila Mocha Uson, ThinkingPinoy (RJ Nieto), tsaka Sass Rogando Sasot. Make up your minds! Hindi lang naman sina Maharlika o si Mr. Riyoh ang mga bloggers na DDS, anoh. Limiting pro-DDS to being pro-Marcos as a requirement is absurd.

Kami nga, hindi na kami sang-ayon sa pulitika ni Caloy (Celdran), but we still love him. In fact, he’s consistently anti-bobotante. Ang problema kasi sa kanya, he loves Marcos and Aquino, which is ANOMALOUS, since magmumukha talaga siyang Trojan horse sa lagay na iyan. In fact, he turned out to be one, in the end.

This is one reason why my friend NO LONGER reads pro-Marcos pages: Usually, they will only agree with someone, only if it’s convenient for them. So, they will only support Sotto and Pacman because it’s convenient for them, na pro-Marcos sila.

Being kiss-ass to Marcos doesn’t mean, PRO-MARCOS kaagad. That’s a fact! Kaya dahil kay Contring-sensei, we learn how to be INDEPENDENT supporters. No wonder, I agree with the Yellows when it comes to Sotto and Pacquiao—also with the Reds. It only shows, the Yellows and Reds are intellectuals.

Kaya kahit ano pang mangyari, kahit pro-Marcos at pro-Duterte kami, hindi kami magiging pro-Sotto tsaka pro-Pacquiao! Mark our words!!!

The terms, “BOBOTANTE” and “TELEBASURA” are synonymous to one another

They hate ANIME, NHK (Japanese-language TV channel), and anything that is non-Filipino but non-Hollywood, but they will still prefer nonsensical TELEBASURAS over anime, if no Hollywood movies!

FUCK THE PRUDE CONSERVATIVES!!! Fuck them, because they’re no different from the liberal elites. They HATE divorce, but they’re fine with infidelity. They hate Neri Colmenares and Risa Hontiveros, and they prefer Tito Sotto and Manny Pacquiao.

Gan’to ba ka-BOBOTANTE ang mga prudistang konserbatibo natin!?

How are “bobotante” and “telebasura” similar to each other?

1.) They HATE radical change – Basta sikat, iboboto nila! Halimbawa, iboboto nila si Tito Sotto o si Manny Pacquiao, dahil ka-alyado nila sila kunwari, Digong o BBM. Well, as much as I admire both Tatay Digong and BongBong Marcos, I still HATE Monkey Fuckyew! Hindi ba alam ni Fuckman na tumakbo din sa pulitika si Aga Muhlach!?

Remember, Aga Muhlach’s career was almost ruined because of joining politics. Good thing he didn’t win. However, the only “fallback” he has is to be a co-manager of Jollibee’s franchise. Well, correct me if I’m wrong.

Eh ‘diba nasira rin si Richard Gomez dahil sa pulitika? And now… he’s the MAYOR!? OF ORMOC CITY!? GAHD, ginagawa ba nilang “negosyo” ang pulitika!?

To be honest, the #TeamGomez family is like fooling the promdis. Subukan nga ni Lucy Torres ang tumakbo sa Cebu, I bet TALO siya kaagad!

Ang BOTANTALINO, si ISKO MORENO ang binoboto. Granted, “artista” lang din naman sa paningin ninyo si Isko, ngunit HUWAG KAYO! May qualifications somehow si Isko, dahil nag-crash course pa iyan sa Harvard! Take note, HARVARD iyan!

Tandaan ninyo, nasa tao parin ang pagbabago. Kung si Tito Sotto parin o si Fuckyaw ang iboboto ninyo, oh well, GOD BLESS DA PILIPINS!!!

2.) Bobotantes who love telebasuras are big-time ASKHOLES – Well, ang gusto parin nila ang nasusunod. Like, sinabi na ngang si matalinong pulitiko ang iboboto, eh ang binoto parin niya eh iyung mga “NUISANCE” na kandidato. At kung panay reklamo sila, sabihin niyo sa kanila, “Eh papano iyan, hindi niyo naman sinunod ang payo ko. Sinong tutulong sa inyo, alikabok!?”

Kaya ang mga Filipino immigrants sa Amerika na telebasura parin ang pinapanood, sila ang pambansang KAHIHIYAN dahil nga, ang asta parin nila, typical telebasura fantard, wala ring pinagkaiba sa mga die-hard FANTARDS ng JaDine, tsaka higit sa lahat, KAHTNIEL!

3.) DILAWTISTA ang tawag nila sa’yo kapag bino-BOYKOT mo si Pacman, tsaka wala ka pang TFC subscription – Eh diba, DILAW network din naman ang TFC!? Mas pipiliin ko pang magtimpi sa NHK (na sobrang makabuluhan tsaka child-friendly pa!), o ‘di kaya sa mga channel na may katuturan. KBS pa lang, sapat na sa’kin iyun!

So what kung wala akong TFC subscription? Di ibig sabihin nun eh hindi ko nami-miss ang Pinas! Kaya payo ko lang sa mga Pilipino, huwag na kayong mag-subscribe sa TFC. BASURA IYAN!!!

4.) Para sa kanila, ang pag-aartista ang tanging solusyon upang maka-ahon sa hirap ng buhay – Hindi totoo iyan! Ang pag-aaral ng mabuti’t makapagtapos ay mas IMPORTANTER kesa sa pag-a-artista. SUS! Sa mga sosyaling pamantasan nga, mas ROCKSTAR parin ang mga atleta kesa sa mga artista, kung tutuusin. Kumbaga, napaka-ordinaryo masyado ng mga artista sa loob ng pamantasan. Itanong niyo lang kaya si Alex Gonzaga.

5.) Telebasura-loving bobotantes are the guiltiest SMART-SHAMERS! – Ibig sabihin lang nun, kapag matalino ka’t iboboto mo sina Neri Colmenares tsaka Risa Hontiveros, ang tingin nila sa’yo eh DILAWTISTA na kaagad! Even prude conservatives are as guilty as telebasura-loving bobotantes, as much as smart-shaming is concerned!

Sila pa ang mga self-righteous, all-knowing people na may Dunnings-Krueger effect sa kanilang lohika. At isa pa, mas bilib pa nga ‘ata sila sa mga katulad ni NOYNOY AQUINO kesa kay Gloria Arroyo pagdating sa pamamalakad ng bayan.

The more you watch ABS-CBN, the more you become BOBO… tante.

The same people who voted for Noynoy Aquino, and still voted for Tito Sotto and Manny Pacquiao should be included as TARGETS in the Duterte administration’s most controversial campain: OPLAN TOKHANG, or in simple terms, the war on drugs.

Watching TELEBASURAS everyday will make you BOBOTANTE overnight

I cannot consider K-Dramas, J-Dramas, Taiwanese dramas, or even American dramas as “telebasuras.” The usual Mexicanovelas or Latinovelas are the ones that are closer to what “telebasuras” should be. It is sickening that one person shared that her obaachan stated why she would bring up the “nationalist card” when it comes to Chinovelas (Taiwanese dramas), but does not do the same when it comes to Mexicanovelas.

Again, telebasuras are fucking inferior to the core! Mas nakaka-BOBO pa nga ang telebasura kumpara naman sa anime+video games, at mas nakaka-bobo parin ang mga telebasura kumpara naman sa panonood ng mga J-Drama, K-Drama, o Chinovela. To be honest, East Asian dramas are more interesting and full of depth and substance, as compared to Mexicanovelas. Even the Spanish-speaking word will admit about “telebasuras” and their existence.

Telebasuras are only a matter of self-immersion to “CRINGE FEST.” Instead of being entertained, you’ll only cringe. But, if you’re really simple-minded, then you think that telebasuras outweigh American dramas when it comes to depth and intensity of plot.

Alam niyo bang kahit sabi-sabi ng mga pa-sosyal diyan na “BADUY” ang mga East Asian dramas, at least it’s understandable if they call teleseryes “BAKYA.” Tawagin niyo kaya silang ELITISTA o ‘di kaya mga ignorante, ngunit sa totoo lang ho, gaya ng sabi ko, mas rockstar parin ang mga atleta kesa sa mga artista, kapag nasa loob lang din sila ng pamantasan. In fact, mas rockstar tsaka KILALA NAMAN NG BUONG PILIPINAS si Rachel Anne Daquis, as compared to let’s say… Ria Atayde. Or Linn Oeymo, the girl who portrayed the villain Maddie in KathNiel’s debut drama, “Princess and I.” Iyung mga artistang half-Filipino half-Caucasian, mga sikat pa ba sila? In fact, wala parin silang sinabi sa mga katulad nila RACHEL ANNE DAQUIS, GRETCHEN HO, JERON TENG, ARNOLD VAN OPSTAL, ALYSSA VALDEZ, SONTAYA, BUALEE (pronounced as Bow-lee), CHRIS TIU, JAMES YAP, MARC PINGRIS, SAORI KIMURA, tsaka ang pinaka-bagong crush ng bayan, si SABINA ALTYNBEKOVA.

And of course, Hollywood stars who are pretty much products of let’s say, acting dynasties are still “NOTHING” compared to the likes of Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Kobe Bryant, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Lionel Messi, David Beckham, Ricardo Kaka, Kei Nishikori, Ichiro Suzuki, Sadaharu Oh, and most of all, Cristiano Ronaldo!

Sabihin nating hindi pang-lifetime ang pagiging atleta, ngunit kung tutuusin naman, mas mataas parin ang kikitain mo kapag isa kang PRO ATHLETE. Ibig sabihin nun, mas BIG-TIME KA PARIN kesa sa mga artista. Remember, show business is only a profession if your whole entire life is dedicated towards ENTERTAINMENT. However, if you’re an athlete, I tell you, you go farther… you go through horizons, and most of all, mas influential ka parin kumpara sa mga artista. Remember, physical education is something that you can use for a lifetime than being a “celebrity.”

Kaya kahit malaos iyan si Chris Tiu, he has a FALLBACK. Partida, ipinanganak siya na mayaman! Sabihin nating La Ultimo Elitista si Chris Tiu, but he can always quit basketball and venture into business. He is someone you can dislike, but with respect at the same time.

What Direk Joey Reyes imparts to us

The shocking truth about our youth:

I just blocked a young girl who has been literally pleading me to make her an actress and then a star. She is 15 years old and a student … and I told her that she should really focus on her studies first.

Instead, she replied that she wants to enter showbiz because “she wants to help her parents” and that is the ONLY way she knows she can make enough to “lift them from their economic situation.”

I told her again that an investment in education is more important since she is in school but she will not listen. Thus, I blocked her because she is too painful to bear — another kid deluded by the materialism foisted by media promising young people of instant fame, fortune and magazine spreads of what they can possibly own — rather than the significance of a mature mind enriched by studies.

“Bakit pa po ako mag-aaral? Hindi ba nag-aaral naman ang tao para magkatrabaho at kumita? Mas malaki po ang kikitain ko pag artista na po ako.”

If that is the kind of thinking we are inculcating to kids, then … media people … we have not only failed. We have betrayed our calling.

Remember, Marlene Aguilar’s daughter Maya Aguilar Pollard said “NO” to showbiz. Kung ang katropa ko nga, pinapa-showbiz nga dahil “may hitsura” daw naman siya, eh kaso ayaw niya talaga, dahil dekadente ang pag-aartista. She even told me that she “does not look good enough by Filipino standards,” so she might not make it to TV, and she’s pretty fine with it.

Sa totoo lang, do not venture to showbiz just to earn “bigger bucks.” Hindi niyo ba alam na may “casting couch” behind-the-scenes? That’s what you’re going to do, if you want to earn a career. If that practice is against your values, then DON’T join showbiz. In one teleserye-hating group, there’s this one person who shared that Filipino-Japanese seiyuu (voice actor) Megumi Nakajima almost joined Pinoy showbiz, but it’s great that she did NOT do so. Now, I’m worried about Maria Ozawa. Buti na lang, wala pang “BIG BIG HUGE project (typical Angel Locsin grammar)” si Ma-chan is because, alam niyo naman ang tingin sa mga pornstar dito sa Pinas, pwede lang parausin ng basta-basta.

MSP said:

Hindi ko nga masyadong gusto sa una si Maria Ozawa; she’s “too boring” for a pornstar (dapat ang hitsura talaga, mala-Anna Nicole Smith, iyung malandi ang hitsura), but as time passes through, she grows within you. Hindi nga pang-pornstar ang hitsura niya; she’s more like pang-drama or comedy, or better kapag action. In short, pang-girl-next-door ang hitzu niya.

Well, I cannot blame her. In fact, mas mukha pa ngang pornstar sila Megan Fox, si Mocha Uson, at higit sa lahat, si Ellen Adarna. Once you hear the word, “ELLEN ADARNA,” you think of something that is “malaswa.” Mas malaswa pa nga ang dumarating sa kokote mo kapag sinabing, “ELLEN ADARNA.”

It’s a good thing that Ma-chan does not have major projects in the Philippines. As much as we respect her decision to stay in Pinas as a mere talent, well, we feel sorry for her because, she might only end up like Sandara Park. Eh, tinakwil na kaya siya sa Japan. So, where should she head to!? CANADA!?

If that is so, she should be heading instead to AUSTRALIA.

But I suggest, enjoy muna ni Ma-chan ang Pinas habang hindi pa siya binibiyan ng big big huge project. Kasi, darating din ang araw na magiging isa sa mga talents na tatangkilikin ng mga kabataan, IF SHE CHOOSES HER ROLES RIGHT.

…and remember, Ma-chan wants to be a serious thespian, not just a “sex object” who engages in such decadence.

Back to topic.

Speaking of Ma-chan ba naman, the telebasura bobotantes are saying, “Siya ang dahilan kung bakit nalaglag ang mga triplets ni Mariel Rodriguez!”

WOW! Such logic they have, huh? Dahil sa bigla-biglaang “resignation” ni Robin Padilla, habang wala pa iyung “Nilalang,” and Ma-chan called Binoe “unprofessional,” they will point their fingers on Ma-chan and say na, “siya ang dapat sisihin dahil sa miscarriage ni Mariel”?

Huwag kami oi! Ma-chan stood corrected after she learned about this miscarriage. Mali man ang timing ni Binoe when it comes to announcing his resignation, but to be honest, he has to be with Mariel’s side AT ALL COSTS, except sa iyung nag-States si Mariel to give birth to Isabella.

Side Note: Heto namang si Mariel, pa-awa effect. Doesn’t she realize that she should know better? ‘Di komo’t minana lang niya ang US citizenship niya (yep, Mariel has US citizenship by inheritance, not by birth), pwede na niyang dalhin ng basta-basta si Robin Padilla sa States, because remember, may criminal record si Binoe when it comes to illegal possession of firearms. It was DIGONG who gave him amnesty to “erase” that record.

Also, speaking of Ma-chan, she learned something. Like, “Ah, gan’to pala kultura nila. Ah ok, na-culture shock pala ako.” I have to admit, Japan isn’t really the best place to work at the first place, because there are NO EXCUSES. Self-discipline is really their culture, so professionalism is included there. RIGHT!?

Speaking of the telebasura-loving bobotantes out there, do you think, being an artista is importantER than having a professional career? SUS! Si Nonoy Zuñiga nga, kung amputee man siya, he never believed that it’s a hindrance for him to stop singing… and to earn a title of being a doctor! Isali na rin si Melanie Marquez, who took up law (ewan ko kung natapos ba niya). In addition, Sunshine Cruz recently earned her AB Psychology degree in Arellano University. Oh, and before I forget, Jodi Sta. Maria is still at the middle of pursing a career in medicine (nag-premed muna siya sa DLSU-Dasma).

Kaya sa mga ayaw mag-aral diyan, huwag kami! It’s better to finish that degree, unless acting is your life!

The more you watch telebasura… the more you believe that it’s more fun in PAG-AARTISTA… but end up being a BOBOTANTE

Being a bobotante is harder than a rock. Alam niyo, parang mababang standards lang din iyan. BASAHIN NIYO ang BLOG ENTRY NA ITEY para maliwanagan kayo.

Obviously, we call it TELEBASURAS simply because, everything is unrealistic. Sus! Pagkatapos ng awayan dito, sabunutan doon, sampalan dito-doon, it’s weird that your favorite artistas still get the same rebonded or salon-treated hair, while your crushie still has this gel-treated hair. Huwag kami oi! At dito na nga pumapasok ang putanginang beauty standards na nilalamon ng sapilitan sa mga madla: The straighter the hair, the whiter the skin, and the slimmer the body, the better! Kapag hindi ka pasok sa mga kategoryang iyun, you’re perceived as “UGLY,” unless you’re like, a black Hollywood star. See the double standards!?

Honestly speaking, I’d rather have the typical “balugang alipin” who is a good actress than a white-skinned halfie with aristocratic features but has NO TALENT! Seriously, KIM CHIU!? In my book, LAOS NA SIYA!

And for the nth time, say good-bye to the “Pinoy prayd ng bayan,” say for instance, Manny Pacquiao and Charice Pempengco.

Walang sinabi ang Charice POMPONGKAN ninyo sa Sandara Park na minahal ng mga Pilipino! Kahit nag-guest sa Ellen tsaka OPRAH ang Charice ninyo, nalaos naman siya! Samantalang si Sandara Park, hindi man lang siya naging guest sa Ellen o sa Oprah, but with the help of Hallyu, she is still a ROCKSTAR… up to now.

And speaking of Manny Pacquiao, hindi totoo iyung “zero crime rate” tuwing manonood lang kayo ng laban niya sa ring. SIMULA NUNG NAGING SENADOR SIYA!

Ika nga ni Carlos Celdran, nilalangaw na nga ang laban ni FUCKMAN, and that “retirement” shit he was saying!? It’s an entire, sick JOKE!!! In fact, to paraphrase GetRealPhilippines, “Manny Pacquiao may have a humble persona, but in reality he has a HUGE EGO!” No wonder, naa-awa talaga ako kay Jinkee Pacquiao. How come she can endure such decadence done by her husband!? Also, I don’t believe in that “God-fearing” shit of Fuckman, since he said, “Forgive Marcos,” but he lashed out the LGBT community.

Nakaka-putangina naman, oh!

Kaya kahit ayaw na ayaw ko parin sa mga Dilawtista (I vehemently despise the Yellowtist crowd), at least you can count on them when they bash Tito Sotto and Manny Pacquiao, and of course, their dumb-ass supporters who voted for them. After all, these Yellows are part of the educated ELITE. Well, even though they’re equally BOBOTANTE as the telebasura bobotantes simply because they root for Drilon, De Lima, and Trillanes, and of course, Noynoy, at least they’re still attracted to a brilliant-minded person like the late Miriam Defensor-Santiago.

Quoting Antonio Contreras,

My hypothesis is that the LP base — middle to upper class, urban to peri-urban elites — would be less predisposed to be a Sotto voter.

The LP base (or rather, the supporters of the Yellow horde) are after all, educated ELITES (or non-elites). Kaya tawag talaga sa kanila, “high-falutin hypocrites.” Well, as much as I DO agree that they’re high-falutin hypocrites, they’re wise enough NOT to vote for someone like Tito Sotto or Manny Pacquiao, because remember, like what I said, they’re attracted to brilliant minds like the late Ka Miriam. Also, if the prude conservatives vehemently despise (no pun intended) Colmenares and Hontiveros, I myself will be considerate towards them, since when you’re talking about ideas, they’re F-T-W! Only the prudes (esp. the die-hard Marcos loyalists) will believe that they’re both “TRAPOS” because of their political alignment (Neri as a pure leftist, while Risa is like “combining” and “balancing” being a Yellow and a leftist at the same time, which earned her the ire of the leftists, and both are anti-Marcos). Sabihin nating ngapa din si Neri tsaka Risa sa logic (well, yes they suck in logic), but still they have GREAT ideas, which Titosen and Fuckman can NEVER EVER DO!

Voting for Manny Pacquiao or Tito Sotto won’t help the Motherland. Voting for them is not allowing a senate to perform an unexpected “BRAWL.” Real legislative bodies have BRAWLS, that might be completely part of their normal routine every session. I don’t think, walang BRAWL sa mga katulad ng UK, or even Japan, where the solons there were having REAL BRAWL, tsaka naging “memes” pa iyan ng Fibonacci spiral.

…and forget about Alan Peter Cayetano! He did not punch Sonny Trillanes! In fact, it was only Migz Zubiri who had the balls to start the actual brawl, but was calmed down by other senators. Baka Fuckman will only make sense if he starts to punch Trilling…

So yeah, if you want a better Philippines, then refrain from watching teleseryes, and start rallying like what the LEFTISTS do! After all, the leftists also despise TELEBASURAS (to think Anti-Teleserye Alliance said that the leftists watch telebasuras).

Living in America won’t make you automatically open-minded

GirlTalk’s blairbunny said:

Yung mentality na prevalent sa old generation na bilib na bilib sa America. Para bang getting there is their ultimate measure of success. Same dun sa mga nakarating lang feeling na nila better sila than everyone else.

Frankly speaking, I find the United States ordinary and “parang Pilipinas” lang ang vibes. Mas maganda parin sa Pilipinas, kung tutuusin. Airport conditions pa nga sa States, worse than sa Pinas, eh. At least sa Pinas and other parts of Asia, their airport staff are more efficient and more responsive.

Also, #RealTalk: I don’t like to sound as if I am generalizing, but the older generation who becomes US citizens actually become more narrow-minded and bigoted, as compared naman sa mga talagang ipinanganak at/o lumaki sa Estados Unidos. I expect naman sana them to be open-minded, turns out, being a naturalized US citizen didn’t make them open-minded.

So lemme begin the discussion.

GetRealPhilippines NAILZ it!

I absolutely love this statement from GRP (their article on 20 excuses Filipinos justify for the rampant poverty shit… ek ek):

18. We are poor because we are using English which is not our native language. Look at Japan, they use their native language that’s why they are rich.

Rebuttal:

Yeah, right…

(1) Most Singaporeans do not natively speak English as their first language and instead, have mother tongues like Hokkien, Teochew, Hainanese, Henghwa, Hokchew, Cantonese, Hakka, Malay, Javanese, Baweanese, Tamil, Malayalee, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, or others.

Yet they are educated primarily in English as that is the official medium of instruction. And lo and behold: Singapore is one of the richest countries in the world, and in 2010’s IMF ranking for GDP per Capita has surpassed Japan as being the richest East Asian country.

(2) Ireland’s native and national language is Gaeilge, aka “Irish Gaelic.” But in fact, their educational system uses English as the medium of instruction. And Ireland is number 12 in the IMF’s 2010 GDP per Capita top ranking.

(3) Luxembourg’s native language is Letzeburgesch, classified as a dialect of Low German that is somewhat similar to Flemish and Dutch, yet Luxembourg’s primary medium of instruction is French with German acting as a second official language. Both French and German are technically foreign to Luxembourg.

Nevertheless, Luxembourg has ranked as number 1 in the IMF GDP per Capita ranking, and is therefore the country with the highest per capita income in the world for both the 2009 and 2010 data sets. Moreover Luxembourg is also number one in the World Bank’s 2009 GDP per Capita ranking.

(4) India has so many different native or “mother” languages for its extremely diverse population. English, however, serves as its primary official working language especially in business and education. One of India’s biggest advantages has been its reliance on its English-proficient white-collar sector in providing outsourcing services to the developed world. This was its main ticket to becoming one of the world’s emerging economies.

Quite obviously, the whole idea that using one’s native language as a medium of instruction or official language determines success and that not using one’s native language impoverishes a country is clearly absurd.

In fact, despite Singapore’s use of the English language as its major medium of instruction despite the multiple ethnicities present in Singapore who have their own native languages, Singaporean students’ test scores are among the highest in the world.

Speaking of Japan, most Filipinos who love to use Japan as that poster-boy of “native-language use” are totally ignorant of the fact that during the Meiji Restoration, it was extremely common for élite Japanese university students studying some of the most technically-challenging courses in the Natural Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, and even Music, International Diplomacy and others to actually make use of textbooks in German, English, or French, (for some music majors, Italian) and were instructed by foreign professors from Germany, Austria, Britain, the USA, or France. This tendency actually even continued until long after the Meiji Restoration.

So, Imma quote thiz.

The last paragraph? I agree. As a matter of fact, Japanese people learn the language of a foreign country when they reside there. And besides, Japan’s culture is homgenous that’s why there’s NO FREAKING POINT OR SENSE in calling it the official poster-boy of using the native language as medium of instruction. Masato Sakai learned Chinese in uni. Oh, and please take note of Hiroyuki Sanada, Rinko Kikuchi and Masi Oka, plus Shin Koyamada–they won’t make it to the Hollywood scene without learning English. Right!?

And Kentaro Matsuo, the French-speaking Asian dude in Rush Hour 3? I dunno if he’s a French-born Japanese guy?

At siyanga pala, English should be the unifying language of the Philippines. In India, English is the unifying language. Granted, mabigat ang Indian accent ng mga Indiano, yet they make it to a point to maximize their English communication capabilities.

I mean, RESPETO naman sa mga hindi Katagalugan, gaya ng mga Bisaya. Granted, it’s never a bad thing to learn English–I believe it makes sense when we score high in exams. As a matter of fact, ang suliranin lang ng mga Pinoy is that, they become grammar Nazis for invalid reasons. Amaryt!?

Japanese culture is unique on its own–but TBH it isn’t totally and extremely unique kontra sa mga hinala niyo!

MSP says: Honestly speaking, Japanese culture is mostly based on their indigenous culture (Ryukyuan and Ainu–aka the Jomon racial group) plus the Han Chinese culture adopted from the Tang Dynasty. No wonder, elements of Min Nan and Cantonese are embedded in their language. The old, original Japanese terms? They were replaced by Chinese influence, thus, the Hanzi characters were borrowed, and then adopted, thus having their own version, what they call as “Kanji.”

The original inhabitants of Japan had unique features (kindly refer to Ken Hirai, Isamu Shimoji and the ever-famous Hiroshi Abe)–a mixture of South Asian and white European. Don’t get me wrong, that’s how I perceive it. Eventually, their genes were mixed by the Yayois (the Koreans, or any Yellow-raced group of people from the Mongolic area) later on, thus having this so-called “Yamato” Japanese race.

However, the “Yamato” race isn’t really “pure.” Racial purity is after all, a mindset.

Tingnan niyo kaya sina Yui Aragaki, Yukie Nakama–bago sila sumikat. Mapuputi ba talaga sila dati pa? All I could think of a naturally-fair Japanese actress would be Miho Kanno-Sakai. Kyoka Suzuki wasn’t paper-white during her younger years. So before you conclude that if you’re Japanese = white skin, think of the Japanese actresses before they became famous. Gakky wasn’t fair-skinned at all. Same with Yukie Nakama. May iba silang version ng gluta, kaya sila mapuputi ngayon. Aya Ueto wasn’t fair at the first place. Oh, isama na rin ang mga ibang artista sa Japan na halatang nagpaputi lang nung nakatungtong sila ng Tokyo.

In this case, hindi naman gaano homogeneous ang lahi ng mga Hapones. The fair-skinned Japanese, you actually see them in northern parts of Japan. So don’t think that Philippines is alone when it comes to obsession with skin whitening. I could attest to that!

Ang mga naturally-fair talaga, usually they come from northern Japan.

I simply disagree with the fact that Japanese culture is totally unique. Well, unique naman in a sense that they identify themselves with this category, but that doesn’t mean that their identity is isolated. In fact, they’re also known for being more Westernized than Singapore (IMO mas Asian parin at mas conservative ang SG in some way–to think it is multicultural; HK is far more “liberated” and Westernized).

Japanese culture is also conservative, but speaking of love and relationships, they’re quite liberal. Concept of virginity? Meh, that’s too old-school for them. In fact, shotgun weddings are common among couples whose wives were pregnant before marriage, tapos divorce kapag may something wrong… ayun. Pakitanong kay Namie Amuro o Ryoko Hirosue. Hindi ko sigurado kay Rosa Kato. Maybe relationships in Japan don’t work like Posh and Becks (oh yes, British culture is very conservative when it comes to family and marriage–to think it’s a Western culture). But not all–in fact, there are lots of Japanese men who marry late. Hiroshi Abe and Masato Sakai are primary examples. No wonder, nakipag-break si Miho Kanno kay Goro Inagaki dahil si Inagaki, he had a bad reputation before Kanno met Sakai. Then BOOM, Sakai and Kanno married.

No wonder, you see me very excited when Kanno Miho gave birth to their son; like how I rejoice when Marian Rivera gave birth to Baby Zia.

That’s it!

PS: Paging Maria Ozawa, if you can please correct something here in my article onegai-shimasu! Doumo! ❤

Pathtub: Mahalaga ang Wikang Filipino

Hindi talaga ako papayag na mawawala ang wikang Filipino!

Hahahaha! Kailangan talaga nating PAALISIN ang mga oligarkong sipsip sa Impreyalismong Amerika upang mapaunlad at mapabuti ang Pilipinas!

Nakaka-awa naman kasi, ganito na lang ang gagawin natin!? Maganda ang Ingles pero PANGIT mag-Tagalog!? BAWAL!

Naku, pagtatawanan ang Pilipinas dahil lang sa impluwensya ng Imperyalismo ng Amerika at saka mga oligarchs. Pumapasok na talaga ang ILLUMINATI sa bansa!
