#Prangkahan: It’s time for the Filipino to STEP UP from their simple-minded comfort zones

Untitled
Masato Sakai as the cynical and eccentric Atty. Kensuke Komikado

No one notices the most deserving person to go viral in cyberspace. Why is that so? Apparently, people explained that he won’t be as “good enough” as those attractive people whose looks became viral all over the internet.

Well, lemme tell you the truth: I live in the Philippines, and of course, natürlich, most of my friends on Facebook are Filipinos. Duh!

However, I still find it weird why in the world are Filipinos still not open-minded towards East Asian looks, to think naging patok nga ang Meteor Garden, tsaka sikat na sikat pa nga ang Hallyu craze sa Pinas.

Ironically, despite Filipino society’s narrow-mindedness towards East Asian looks, it promotes skin whitening and hair straightening. Also, they believe that you look automatically good, if only your skin texture saved it from making you “plain Jane,” and another fact? Being slender means, sexy.

…but another weird fact is this: Filipinos tend to be obsessed with Western looks. If you’re half-Filipino, and you look more Western than Asian, you’re automatically hailed as “divine.”

Even though the looks is just, “meh.”

Western looks, no offense, are too mainstream

You see them everywhere. Models. Endorsers. TV personalities. Celebrities. A lot more. Most of the time, if the endorser is WHITE, people tend to buy the product—as compared to an Asian endorser. It’s a great thing that TIME Magazine is addressing the issue of “white dominance” in the modelling industry. One comenntator said, “We have beautiful Chinese, Indians, and Malays. Why not use them? Why use someone with Western features, to endorse a product?”

Ironically, the Caucasian race, for most people, is the global beauty standard.

Hence, making it mainstream for many snobs, like me of course!

SOME TRUTH: Filipinos are simple-minded people

…and I hate it.

Honestly speaking, I am a snob (a complete snob, yes) to my own culture. No shitting, ngunit sobrang taas ng tingin ng mga Pinoy sa mga dayuhan, lalo na kapag Kanluranin ang hitzu. Apparently, I have grown tired of that sh*t. In fact, I hate it when Filipinos will only mingle with white people.

One of my aunt’s friends asked, “Why are there only a few white people in L.A.?”

…and she was expecting more white people in Los Angeles. Well sorry, America during the Obama regime was friendlier towards diversity. Here, many Filipinos are only fixated to white people, Christianity, and so-called “false conservatism,” which means that divorce should remain illegal, that the LGBT spreads venereal diseases, that boys will always be boys, and the victim is at fault when she gets raped… and other sorts of crap.

This kind of “prudeness” made Maria Ozawa curious about birth control in the Philippines. She thought, “So you guys don’t abort, right? Well, uhmmm… I actually had an abortion.”

Infairness, the Japanese and the Koreans are far more open-minded, as much as grey areas are concerned. It means that, they’re open to divorce and abortion, albeit not being open-minded towards the LGBT community.

Simple-minded, to the point that average-looking people could pass for “attractive,” if they only have aristocratic skin texture

Well, now you know why Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla and Kitchie Nadal are attractive by Filipino standards? Apparently, their skin texture improved their “meh” looks. Kung ilagay pa siguro sila sa Korea, definitely hindi sila papasa. In Japan, they’ll be considered, “shibui.”

I know someone who is only pretty because of her skin texture. However, her looks are not aristocratic–actually, mukha lang siyang julalay ng mga pangalawang pinsan ko (well, my second cousins have more aristocratic features, albeit having a “loud” personality)–paumanhin naman sana kung mapanglait naman ang wika ko, ngunit sa totoo lang talaga, having nice facial features always beats a “meh” looks, who only becomes attractive because of the skin texture.

In fact, I saw a lot of Filipino-Chinese people being in the so-called “shibui” category.

…and it’s also weird that Melai Cantiveros is “attractive” to the typical Pinoy, to think that her looks aren’t aristocratic at all (puh-leeze! Siya kaya ang natitipuhan kadalasan ng mga puting foreynjer! Don’t me!).

Nakakatawa, actually. I dunno why, but I also find Song Hye-kyo’s looks quite plain–I find Sandara Park better-looking. Well, I have nothing against Jessie Han’s looks–it’s only that many find her attractive because she never went under the knife.

Also, heto pa ang nakaka-tawa: A lot of Filipinos who are not into K-Pop or Hallyu fandom would criticize Korean looks as “minikui” when not surgeried. Like, huh? I don’t think so, actually–in fact, typical Korean looks cannot be classified as “mukhang bayawak,” “hipon,” or “mukhang paa,” if without surgery. In fact, South Korean society tends to be superficial–hence, the inevitable “craze” on plastic surgery.

Like, really? Western looks is superior!?

Hell, no! In fact, Westerners nowadays are starting to embrace diversity–don’t you know that there’s a posing problem when portraying Asians in the Western world? Asian women tend to be objectified–portrayed as subservient, etc.

This makes me cringe, seriously. The never-ending debate when it comes to racial diversity still lingers up to this very day.

Filipinos are fixated to what is given to them

…in fact, this is true. Well, I could say this myself: Filipinos are AFRAID to experiment on things. In fact, I myself have this experience: Until now, I still cannot even mix watercolor paints with bizarre combinations. Hmmm… maybe it’s because I’m afraid that the outcome will be crappy as f*ck. LOL, no kidding there. In fact, the more dominant person usually gets the attention–and everyone would obey him.

Para lang masabi na “hindi ma-arte,” tsaka “walang ere,” well, lemme tell you this–SETTLE FOR MORE, but never force yourself to be TOP OF THE LINE. When I mean TOP OF THE LINE, it means, EXPERT LEVEL. It takes TIME and perseverance to be the top of the line… so if I were you, settle for something you deserve.

Filipinos are not yet open-minded towards the unknown

They’re only accepting towards what is actually familiar to them. Someone even said, even though Filipinos brag that they travel a lot, they’re still IGNORANT. Look at Filipino politicians–they studied abroad, but they’re not yet open-minded and tolerant. Well, I agree. My relatives in the United States are actually GUILTY of that. Once maka-tungtong lang sa Taté, instead of adopting the third-cultured mindset, nagiging arogante’t lumalaki ang ulo, and guess what, you won’t believe what I’m going to tell you: Their standards become lower, their taste are becoming poor and cheap, and lastly, they settle for less.

In other words, many ethnic Filipinos still cannot get the FUCK out of their comfort zones! Given, their passports are already POWERFUL.

In fact, my relatives are “feeling white.” They think and act like white people, and guess what? When they visit the Philippines, they belittle Asian culture. Now, that’s disgusting!

In addition, Filipinos are only fixated to America, the West, and the English language. Like, WHAT THE FUCK!? They make fun usually of different accents and of course, sometimes they mock different languages. HELL, this is UNACCEPTABLE in ALL ASPECTS!

Basta para sa kanila, sosyal ang Amerika, and not only that, for them, Hollywood is the most superior entertainment powerhouse in the world.

Have they ever forget Bollywood, the one that they’re also mocking?

In fact, Aamir Khan is stepping up from the game–he ensures that Bollywood movies are of high standards.

To answer the question, “What do you think about the entertainment industry in the Philippines?

From QueenBeast:

Whay can I say? Lack of fresh and original material, always formulaic, always cater to some stupid portion of the target market, does not focus on artistic value, and it seriously do not focus on the raw, genuine talent. Well, I am talking about the mainstream movie and music industry, and most of the works are not made with international standards while South Korea, India or even Thailand is able to do it.

I agree–in many aspects. I dunno, but I believe in these things:

a.) Filipinos are fixated to something they’re actually accustomed at.
b.) Like any other Asian cultures, Filipinos resist change. I agree.
c.) Filipino entertainment industry focuses on good looks without substance,

Also this:

xxx It is just that i think what happened to Koko was going overboard, while we Filipinos had the nerve to make ching-chong-ching-chong sound when they hear a group of Chinese/Koreans/Japanese people speaking their language, we all had the guts to make racial jokes on people of African race and the latest? Racial jokes on Mayweather (I hate Mayweather as well; even Angel Locsin got slammed on her Twitter for her alleged racial joke on Mayweather). Kung makapag-SUPOT at makapag-BAKLA ang mga Pinoy (especially MEN) sa mga Intsik/Hapon/Koreano, ang lutong, parang ikagaganda ng pagkalalaki nila ang pangsusupot at pangbabakla sa mga Intsik/Hapon/Koreano. Parang ang gwapo nila eh, ano?

Yeah, that’s what I hate about Filipino males… they think that East Asians are inferior, kesyo maputi’t wala sa kultura ang pagpapa-tuli, LALAITIN na nila kaagad!?

Don’t me with that! Magagalit si Senyor Komikado diyan!

#KomiSays: Kaya nagpo-promote ako ng harshtag na, #EastAsianMasterRace, para maging EMPOWERED naman ang mga singkit nating mga kapatid sa ibayong dagat! Feeling kasi ng mga Pilipino, ka-antas naman nila ang mga puti sa Amerika, which is hindi naman totoo. Sa totoo lang, mababa parin ang tingin sa mga Silangang Asyano, lalo na kapag third-world pa nga ang bansa nila (no kidding, ngunit kadalasan, sa mga THIRD-WORLD countries mo pa makikita ang high concentration ng mga magaganda’t gwapo–at least, sa Hilagang-Silangang Asya [日本語:東北アジア]).

Sa totoo lang talaga, kadalasan sa mga Pinoy na may lahing Kanluranin, mga arogante sila! Take for example: Andi Eigenmann, Jessy Mendiola, and Coleen Garcia. To be honest, kung arogante ang mga Latino, nature na nila iyun. However, sa mga di-Latino naman, ang asta naman, feeling superior, eh hindi naman sila pansinin sa ibayong Kanluranin… in fact, I admire Westerners, and Filipinos of Western descent who have a more Asian attitude.

If the Filipino bloodline will only be diluted with something, I prefer East Asian–not only East Asians are humble, they’re also honest about their flaws. Kaya tingnan niyo, mas respetado parin ang mga kapatid nating mga Silangang Asyano–usually kapag Westerner looks na Filipino, medyo mixed parin ang mga reactions.

Sadly, wide-reading isn’t really innate in the Filipino culture

QueenBeast’s reaction tho:

I understand that the students presented here DOES NOT represent the entire Philippine population but I am wondering what school are they from? As a matter of fact, some of them even replied this: WHITE AMERICAN MALES = GWAPO.

I did not finish the video because their responses make me cringe. Have these kids studied geography and culture of each country? I guess they simply merely memorized history books without further understanding.

While it is true that Chinese are stereotyped to be thrifty, but is this all that they know about China and Chinese? #AngTangaNaman!

Sometimes I wonder if they utilize internet properly, particularly Google, or they only know Facebook. I understand whatever the contraints they might have, but I simply could not stand how limited their knowledge is. For example:

HARRY POTTER, MATE

Some answered America, or Australia or worse, Europe.

American film po ba ang Harry Potter? How long you guys have been living under the rock?!?!?!?!

I was in my late teens when Harry Potter was shown in the Philippines, and during that time, Google was not as multi-functional, I do not even HP books and that we do not have computer and internet at home, dial-up pa lang ang internet noon, kaya lang, that time, I already knew that HP is not American nor Australian.

Why?

United Kingdom is the next biggest entertainment producer next to USA. Also, only very few Australian/New Zealand films were shown in the Philippines in 1990s/2000s. Wala pang halos Japan or Korean wave nun around 2002 backwards. Kung hindi American or Hongkong films ang nasa foreign movie bucket ng Pinoy, movies ng United Kingdom, and distinguishable naman ang difference ng American and UK accent right?

As for hearing from friends… well, what kind of friends? Sometimes, it is not always great to rely from your fellow Filipino friends. Whether in real-life or cyberspace, it would be better if you interact with foreigners or immerse yourself in their culture.

I won’t care if most people will be angry to me for my arrogance. I am not bragging to be intelligent, but if I am on that video, my response will be faaaaaar different from them. Now that is how I get my facts straight!

Now that’s foreign knowledge 101 for you guys!

#KomiSays: ‘Teh, they come from the prestigious College of St. Benilde. HWAW! I KENNAT!

I cannot even believe that ang perception parin nila sa mga Intsik eh, “KURIPOT.” To tell you the truth, the Chinese are NOT even kuripot, if they know you well. It still depends on whom they interact with–generally, mas generous pa ang non-traditional conservative na Fil-Chi kesa sa pure traditional Chinese.

Given na magiging Chinese school na nga ang DLSU-M tsaka DLS-CSB, ha! I KENNAT (pa moar)!

But to be honest, someone told me that if you want to know the “stereotypes” of the Chinese based on ethnolinguistic group they belong, well, here:

Mandarin – academic-centered
Min nan – negosyante-centered
Cantonese – most Westernized of all ethnolinguistic groups

Well, may konting katotohanan ang mga stereotypes na iyan. First and foremost, Mandarin speakers tend to excel academically like the rest of the East Asians, but the Min nan speakers tend to focus on entrepreneurship. I agree. It is evident not only in the Sinosphere, but also in Chinese-speaking communities in Southeast Asia. Look at the Thai-Chinese, the Malaysian Chinese, the Filipino-Chinese, and the Indonesian Chinese–most of them would be the top-of-the-line businessmen–or in other words, the VIP. Kaya mga kuripot kadalasan ang mga Intsik ay dahil rooted na sa kultura nila ang value of money. In fact, the Filipino-Chinese are better off as entrepreneurs of their own–it is evident that most of our influencers online are Filipino-Chinese.

So, this sums up Bobbi Tiglao’s point on why mas marami pang Chinese kesa sa native na Pinoy ang ruling class–and in addition, the Filipino-Chinese would usually associate themselves with China, more than the Philippines. Itanong niyo lang iyan kay Manong F. Sionil Jose.

Well, with the rest of QueenBeast’s rant, pasintabi lang ha, ngunit MURA lang naman po ang WORLD MAP. May Google Maps naman, why not maximize its features? At least, EASY ACCESS na lang ang location ng bawat bansa–and you’ll know each country’s geopolitical history pa nga, eh!

Ganyan ba ka-DEFEATIST ang mga Pinoy!?

Itanong lang natin si mareng MSP.

Sadly, the Philippine education system has FAILED us… or WE (might) have failed them

In fact, there are no qualified teachers who would help us understand WORLD HISTORY. Oha, kaya pala maraming mga elitistang nangangapa parin sa KASAYSAYAN, kung hindi lang LOGIC ang weakness nila. To be honest, if you HATE the Marcoses simply because of MARTIAL LAW, to be honest, you won’t understand until you READ UP the entire COLD WAR. In fact, the Cold War is one of the most important key events in world history. If you don’t want to believe me, then READ any world encyclopedia or any HARD-BOUND book that is about world history. That’s what I did it. Not only that, I also immersed myself in the Russian culture–because during that time, I was interested in learning their military system, and of course, the Soviet era.

The popular kids in high school + the elitists are… shallow and superficial.

Yeah, sobrang shallow and superficial to the point that they only familiarize themselves with local and WESTERN entertainment. Kaya tingin ko, pagdating nila sa Japan, marami silang na-miss out–they failed to watch ANIME.

Side Note: Anime is actually a primer towards the Japanese culture. However, lemme tell you this: Not everything you see in anime could happen in real life.

To be honest, before you travel to EAST ASIA, better watch anime or J-Drama if you’re going to Japan–and if you’re visiting South Korea, better familiarize yourself with the classics: Dae Jang Geum, Jumong, and Hwang Jin-i. That way, you’ll get a more cultural feel of what Korea is about.

#KomiSays: To be honest, speaking of Chinese culture, hindi mo na kelangang manood ng Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, o ‘di kaya The House of Flying Daggers (well, to be honest I never watched those movies YET)–dahil sa totoo lang naman po, ramdam mo naman ang kulturang Tsino sa Pinas. So, why the need to watch Chinese movies if you could feel the culture itself in your homeland? In fact, malakas ang Chinese influence sa iba’t-ibang bahagi ng Asya–in fact, sometimes we associate everything Chinese with Buddhism–to think that Buddhism originated in South Asia (apparently, Siddharta Gautama would have been a third-cultured person if he lived in the modern-day world).

I would like to tell everyone the state of education in the Philippines: It is fixated to books, and out-of-class learning isn’t actually encouraged. Kaya pala, ang mga nagiging honor student nowadays, mga elitista parin naman.

LEGIT intelligent people do not have to be grade-conscious, actually. Besides, those who are grade-conscious are not as intelligent as you think they are.

In other words, these elitists still cannot even read or be familiar with a SIMPLE, and CHEAP WORLD MAP!

Also, Social Studies subject in Philippine high schools, to be honest, teaches ignorance and bigotry. Kaya pala ako, nagka-grade ng 96 nung first quarter nung second year, eh!

For me, that’s a simple achievement–but that’s because masyadong trivial ang mga lessons that time. Memorization of facts–even though there’s no need to analyze why things are like that, and a lot more. To be honest, this is insane–getting high grades because of pure memorization alone won’t even progress someone’s well-being.

To be honest, if you want to travel and get yourself familiar with cultures, I suggest you read the history books that are provided in your home. Also, LISTEN to the most popular and influential historians. If they have biases, well, it’s all up to you whether or not you’ll believe their narratives.

The elitists keep on dominating and imposing standards… which you MUST resist

Not everything the shittakaburi and the elitists impose to you… are always RIGHT and ACCURATE. In fact, the sad reality of world history is this: “History is written by the victors.”

True enough. That’s why, to be honest, Philippine history sucks. I won’t ever retract those words at all.

Kaya pala hindi mabitay-bitay si Trillanes tsaka pinupuri palang “BAYANI” si Ninoy, kahit sa totoo lang naman, marami siyang nagawang PAHAMAK sa bayan natin.

Anong, “Ninoy is a hero, Cory is a saint”? Huwag ako! I am not saying that the Marcoses are heroes and saints–ang “alitan” kuno ng mga Marcos vs. Aquino, eh nadamay lang din naman ang sambayanang Pilipino, eh. Well, guess what? Ang common ground lang naman kasi ng alitan nila ay heto: ANG WARRING CLAN na Cojuangco (OO NA, puno’t dulo lang naman ng estado ng Pinas ang alitan ng mga Cojuangco).

Why warring clan?

Kung “warring” family ang Barretto, SOWS! Wala pa nga ang alitan nila sa alitan ng mga COJUANGCO, which is still existing up to now. Hanggang ngayon, hindi parin magkakasundo ang partido nila Danding, tsaka ang mga Dilawan.

O ayan ha, ngayon at alam niyo na kung bakit THIRD-WORLD country parin ang Pilipinas, bukod pa sa 60/40 restriction na iyan (which is the “Filipino First Policy,” na elitista lang naman ang nakikinabang).

To be honest with all of you, that’s Modern Philippine History 101 to ALL OF YOU.

But sometimes… the LOYALIST lived with their “LOYALISM”

…and that is prudeness.

Wonder why some parents will forbid their children to watch anime? Oh, I remember when Voltes V was banned because Marcos accepted someone’s suggestion to ban it. That conservatism was the conservatism of PRUDENESS… it means that, this led to our old folks being fixated to what is professed unto them.

Sucks, right?

They laugh at the Japanese culture, kesyo liberated daw–when in fact, Japan won’t be a POWERHOUSE for nothing. Also, infairness to the Japanese, they apologize for the atrocities during the second World War, which the Americans, until now, couldn’t do.

Now, there’s the CONFLICT between the liberal elites versus the prude conservatives–extremes won’t work–and each side tends to be abusive power-trippers at the same time.

So, they’re no different from one another.

Simple-mindedness, shallowness and superficiality in the Philippines: The root cause of crab mentality

There are reasons why the elitists are shallow and superficial people: They’re only fixated to something that’s given to them… they do not get the fuck out of their comfort zones.

However, not everyone who are shallow and superficial people are elitists. Some of ’em are really, not elitists, but they’re simple-minded. I dunno, even their academic performances won’t be convincing to me–esp. when they use their logic.

Call me arrogant for bashing simple-minded people, however, the social gap widens simply because of conflicting interests between the two parties. Oh, latest case in point?

Oh, it’s Prof. Antonio Contreras’s article about the elitists RANTING about the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

Notable excerpts:

And when Mocha Uson was asked to promote the Festival as its ambassador, not a few raised their eyebrows. After all, it is hard to decouple Mocha from what the elitists derisively label as the unthinking masses which she commands in social media. Mocha allegedly represents the unsophisticated classes that in past MMFF have enriched the pockets of Regal and Star Cinema. This is the class that laughed at the inanities of Vice Ganda, were mesmerized by the magical world of Vic Sotto in “Enteng Kabisote,” screamed in fear at the predictable horror in the nth installment of the pseudo-immortalized “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” and cried and commiserated with the formulaic drama of movies like ‘Mano Po.”

But for the elitists to hold this view simply reeks of arrogance. In doing so, they assault the ordinary Pinoy.

At least, the quality of films in MMFF is simply put, improved. To be honest, I would like to see “Die Beautiful,” simply because makeup guru Paolo “Pochoy” Ballesteros is the main protagonist, and speaking of the mainstream-ish films that didn’t make it? SET THEM ASIDE.

Besides, these elitists are all-knowing (shittakaburi in Japanese, and Besserwisser auf Deutsch), but to be honest, they don’t even know what they’re talking about.

But for the elitists to hold this view simply reeks of arrogance. In doing so, they assault the ordinary Pinoy.

…and before the elitists will call the Class D and E as “BOBOtante,” why not read the excerpt from this piece, “The truth about the elites and elitism“:

…and as a matter of fact, nasa ELITISTA naman talaga ang tunay na BOBOtante (oh guys, I recommend you read Senyor Komikado’s blog–he’ll discuss about the elitists being the real BOBOtantes). Maa-ari ko pang sabihing mga bobotante talaga ang mga bumoto kay Manny Pacquiao, but I cannot say the same towards those who voted for BongBong Marcos as their vice-president.

xxx but as the old adage goes, “Nothing beats the word of mouth.”

To be honest, the elitistas are the REAL and LEGIT bobotantes. Ang boboto sa mga Dilawan ay mga tunay na BOBOtante iyan. In fact, mas TUNAY pa nga tsaka hindi puro fashion statements lang sa trabaho ang mga “butt-of-all-jokes” na sina Nancy Binay, Cynthia Villar, Lito Lapid, and of course, the lovable Dick Gordon. I cannot say the same towards Manny Pacquiao since despite his philanthropic work, it still does not make him qualified as a senator. Nakaka-bobo lang iyung “…sisipain na lang ang upuan” sa pagbabalik ng parusang kamatayan, ta’s gagawin pang batas ang “National Bible Day.”

#KomiSays: PUKING INA NAMAN, OH! Kung sino pa nga ang butt of all jokes, sila pa ang no-nonsense pagdating sa trabaho. Imagine, solons Nancy Binay and Cynthia Villar, respectively, abstained and refused to block the Marcos burial. Well, as much as I am not a supporter of theirs, but to be honest, at least they respect the rule of law, to think Binay is unexperienced and incompetent before running for senate, and Villar made a cringe-worthy statement regarding Filipino nurses–which she didn’t even kept track at, was a mishap.

Maraming paring mga elitistang UTO-UTO sa mga pulitikong puro pangako, eh perwisyo din naman sa bayan. Totoo iyun. In fact, those who they accused as “BOBOtante” are often the ones who will eventually vote for BongBong Marcos as the vice-president.

Tanong ng mga elitista, “Ano bang MERON kay BongBong Marcos na wala kay Leni Robredo?”

The answer: BongBong Marcos is pure business, while Robredo is pure fashion statements. I’m sure magagalit na naman ang mga elitista sa’kin, but their shallowness and superficiality only makes me think that they’re supporting NECRO-politics.

Totoo naman, eh. Ayaw daw nila kuno sa necro-politics, but the same people voted for NoyNoy after Cory passed away from colon cancer… and now, they voted for Leni Robredo because they say that, she’s living the late Jesse Robredo’s policy.

NAKAKA-PUTANG INA NAMAN, OH!

Kaya pala, tokshet lang din ang mga elitista sa mga ordinaryong Pinoy. Puro fashion statements ang mga elitista, kaya pala, kung anong pinagsasabi nila kay MSP dati na “KSP,” walang class atsaka breeding,” tsaka lastly, “BALIW.” Don’t they realize that what they stone to MSP, actually reflect themselves?

Naa-apakan kasi ang pride nila, kaya ayan. No one will ever sympathize with them. Kung “Pakyu Marcos” tsaka “UKINAM Marcos” lang pala ang nasa placard nila, bansagan niyo naman ng “PUQUINO” or “FUCKquino.” That way, “Puquino” and “Fuckquino” will be more popular and more convincing than the “Pakyu Marcos” and “Ukinam Marcos.”

Bumabalik naman sa mga elitista ang mga pinagsasabi nila sa mga tipikal na Pinoy. In fact, these elitistas are now being the butt of jokes for not knowing basic survival skills–and they’re often stereotyped for their CUNT language–which is COÑO.

BWAHAHAHAHA! It’s only right to call their so-called “dialect” as, “COÑO.”

Martin Andanar is RIGHT: The anti-Marcos are temperamental BRATS

Hindi lang spoiled brat, mga PALAMUNIN pati. Remember, these elitists PROMOTE crab mentality–due to their shallowness and superficiality.

I remember when my elitist blockmates actually insulted the typical Tondo resident, mocking them with the “skwating” attitude.

Hello, you’re in CWTS–‘tang ina, I still do not know if they GREW THE FUCK UP already, but from what I recall, the “high school brats” that was described upon them stayed true. In fact, one of our professors said, “Huwag nga kayong elitista diyan!” He knew better.

That’s tough love 101, to be exact.

I think, the elitists deserve to be ruled with an iron fist. OHA, para hindi na sila mamimihasa.

…and the bullying to Sandro Marcos with regards to his Rogue One statement? WHAT!? That’s a fake Twitter account.

The elitists want to have a president that is both of the firmness and stringency of Lee Kuan Yew, with the compassion of Justin Trudeau–but they cannot see it in President Duterte.

Crab mentality parin, huh?

In fact, these elitists are ANTI-FILIPINO. They should go abroad and acquire permanent residency, or even citizenship–to live their comfortable lives as PALAMUNIN parin. Seriously, the ordinary Filipino is sick and tired of their so-called “First-world problems.”

To find out more, better read the piece, “The truth about the elites and elitism.”

Conclusion

I think, you better read the blog posts of Senyor Komikado, regarding elitism. That way, you’ll understand how this made the Filipino mindset stagnant until now… I guess?

#KomiSays: Better step up from the game.

[Correction: Sen. Nancy Binay abstained from voting against the Marcos burial, while Cynthia Villar refused the motion against the burial.]

Frustrating: Anne Curtis and her so-called AIRHEADEDNESS

This time I now have the balls to side with FP-tards and GTalkers at the same time (despite their opinions that are quite biased; similar to meek standards, lol), when it comes to Anne Curtis.

Pati si Sarah Geronimo, nahiya na rin sa kanya!

No wonder, hindi kataka-taka at hindi rin nakakagulat na may “attitude” na pala itong si Anne Curtis. Dahil pagkatapos ng insidente nila ni John Lloyd Cruz, doon na talaga lumabas ang tunay niyang ugali when she confronted Sam Concepcion at Vice Ganda’s party.

Kung lasing pala siya, DINAIG pa niya si Ellen Adarna!

Roxy, on a Beast Mode said:

Seriously, Anne Curtis’ behaviour has now gone frustrating. After her incident with Sam Concepcion, I started not to believe her denials on saying ‘You’re not that classy….’, because she already done her ‘I can buy you, your friends and this bar’. She admit it, she apologized. Her reason? Juice detox, then gone partying at the bachelorette party. However, while KC has no intention on making ‘patama’ against Anne, KC declared on her Instagram that Juice Detox has nothing to do with sudden outbursts.

Boom, Panes!

I have even read about juice cleanse and what I think is, in the first place you shouldn’t have been taking alcoholic stuff. Another thing, as per netizens, when you are drunk, you are just wild. There was even a testimony that Anne Curtis wasn’t drunk at the time she slapped John Lloyd and slutshamed Phoemela.

Ngayong wala nang maisip na idadahilan, she denied rumors and eventually, nag-paawa after being stung kuno by a jellyfish.

Pathetic. Really.

It is needless to say ther her success eventually gotten into her head while she was even disputable in talent department in the first place when she started.

#RealTalk: I think nagkalat lang siya sa Bb. Pilipinas Coronation night when she sang ‘Alone’. I understand that singing is her frustration that is why she keeps on accomplishing that ‘dream’ but how she will be taken seriously as a singer and recording artist if she makes singing as nothing but a joke. No wonder, Lea Salonga allegedly talked smack about her when she heard about Anne held a concert at the Araneta few years ago.

MONEY CAN’T BUY CLASS
CLASS CAN’T BUY TALENT

Unfortunately, Anne is class-questionable as well

Nahiya naman ang mga genuinely talented artirstas sa kanya.

Kelangan pa talaga lumipat ng ABS-CBN para madevelop ang talent while she should have been talented in the first place.

What she has become is really frustrating because I perceived her to be nice in person despite others’ perception on her as ‘maarte’. After her second incident, I felt like bumaba tingin ko sa kanya.

I did not get frustrated when ABS-CBN is doing so much damage control on her. ‘Matik na ‘yan! #AlamNa

Fame is still not a reason for Anne to act so matapobre when she NEVER belonged to the Manila’s High Society (unfortunately, most artistas do not belong to them despite fame and money. #KawawaNaman) eversince. Fame is nothing when you have no enough talent an education in the first place. Those people who are like that are worse than beggars singing on the streets while begging for money.

Nothing more than a trash

Well, I just cannot agree more in this part:

#RealTalk: I think nagkalat lang siya sa Bb. Pilipinas Coronation night when she sang ‘Alone’. I understand that singing is her frustration that is why she keeps on accomplishing that ‘dream’ but how she will be taken seriously as a singer and recording artist if she makes singing as nothing but a joke. No wonder, Lea Salonga allegedly talked smack about her when she heard about Anne held a concert at the Araneta few years ago.

It seems that Lea Salonga is vindicated here. Tama naman si Lea Salonga talaga, eh. I mean come on, though frustration naman ni Anne Curtis ang kumanta, singing is a profession, not a joke.

After all, Anne Curtis is nothing more than being an entertainer.

#KomiSaid:

So walang class si Sam C. ngayon, huh? Mukhang tama nga ang mga GTalkers tungkol kay Anne Curtis! Mukhang nawawala talaga siya sa sarili niya kapag nagiging lasing talaga siya! Dinaig pa niya si Ellen Adarna!

And he even shared:

Muntik niya kayang sampalin si Cedric Lee! (Source: GTalk)

WOW! Buti na lang may tumigil kay Anne sa pagsasampal kay Cedric Lee. Kung nasapak niya si Cedric Lee, expect her to be a has-been and being harassed by Cedric Lee through his henchmen.

Even GTalkers have a LOT of testimonies to tell! I’ll post them if I am not too lazy.

Totes Agree with Senyor Komi!

#KomiSays:

Kung ako nga ang tatanungin, mas maganda pa ang mukha ni Wendy Valdez, kung ikukumpara mo naman siya kina Mariel Rodriguez at Kitchie Nadal, ‘no!? (BTW, the latter two are known for being pretty in person without makeup because of their KUTIS MAHARLIKA)

Wendy Valdez, however, had bad skin. That’s why she’s not so pretty (by Filipino standards), but her features could pass for pretty.

Agree to that! Well, Wendy is pretty, but she has really bad skin. That’s why I didn’t find her so pretty that time, just because she’s dark.

Anyways, that should not be an issue after all. Wala ngang sinabi sina Mariel at Kitchie pagdating sa pagiging maganda, kumpara kay Wendy, eh. Though Wendy is bitchy as her persona, people attested that she’s not bitchy in person pala, eh. Kung ako pa ang tatanungin, features-wise, Wendy passes for good-looking.

Walang sinabi sina Mariel at Kitchie kasi nga, Wendy lacks the dark eyebags–in other words, kung itatabi siya kay Mariel at Kitchie, she would definitely stand out talaga. I was really shocked like hell why Mariel is pretty in person. Siguro dahil sa makeup, pero without makeup, they even attested she’s prettier.

WELL THAT’S BECAUSE OF HER SMOOTH SKIN, PEEPS!

Kung hindi lang makinis si Mariel, definitely she would not stand out.

I simply do not get it why Filipino society thinks that having smooth skin without consulting the derma = attractive. I mean, come on, there are still smooth-skinned people who are not really attractive at all, unless nadadala ang ang features ng mukha niya sa kinis ng kanyang balat.

#KomiSays: Hindi ako nagagandahan talaga kay Mariel Rodriguez, pero makinis ang balat, oo.

And hello, Mariel is one of the celebrities who looks older than her age–in other words, kaya lang siya maganda in person without makeup is because of her skin texture. Period. Kung pangit sana ang balat niya, definitely legit ladyboy-looking na talaga siya. (I really doubt, she really has sophisticated features. One PExer and my couz saw her in person. Not really legit pretty. Even some forumers attest hindi talaga head-turner ang dating niya. After all, I believe Bashing 101. I think she’s pretty in person because of the makeup.)

Same with Kitchie Nadal. Also, hindi ko rin gets kung bakit marami ring nagagandahan sa kanya. I bet, hindi siya stand-out sa La Salle dati. Kung ako pa ang tatanungin, ang stand-out award would definitely go to Carla Abellana and Iya Villania–since these two girls are NOT given justice in the camera–but looking at their features, they definitely stand out.

Also, just because they ome from La Salle does not mean you will expect that ALL Lasallians are blessed with good keratin build-up. Hell, being blessed with good keratin build-up actually depends whether you have East Asian ancestry or not, and that’s it.

Anyways, having smooth skin is rather an asset to those girls who really do not have sophisticated features. Kumbaga, nadadala lang ang ganda nila sa kinis ng kanilang balat. ‘Yun na!

If you’re going to ask a Korean or a Japanese person, I bet, no one will think that Mariel and Kitchie is attractive once they see them in person without makeup (kahit siguro sa TV o pics pa ‘yan). You know how skyrocketing high their standards really are. They might say that Wendy Valdez is really pretty.

Because for Koreans and Japanese people, they think that their smooth, flawless skin is NOT enough to define a person as attractive. Features mismo ang tinitingnan, and if they like your features, they will surely envy you. Eh kay Mariel at Kitchie, I bet, no Korean or Japanese person will think they really stand out. Siguro sina Tricia Gosingtian pa o si Alodia Gosiengfiao pa ang mag-stand out.

You know that there are many Koreans and Japanese people who are smooth-skinned, but hell, kung sino pa ang mas marami pang acne marks sa kanila, sila pa ang mas attractive. Well, I’m pertaining towards the guys, ah. Impression ko kasi sa mga East Asian guys na makikinis, parang ang bading tingnan. Hell, ang mas brusko pa ang balat, sila talaga ang attractive.

What Komi is trying to emphasize is that, he thinks that having smooth, flawless skin does not make one person attractive. Tama naman talaga siya, eh. Skin color and/or skin texture does not define how good-looking and/or presentable a person really is. Kumbaga, he’s trying to emphasize that there are some people who are just good-looking without makeup because of their skin. Obvious naman na maganda “daw” sa personal si Mariel without makeup is because of her skin texture. Tama rin si Komi na maganda lang si Mariel because of her kutis maharlika, ‘yun na! As a matter of fact, Mariel once attested that Kristine Hermosa is pretty even without makeup and also in person is because, kahit tadtad siguro ng zits si Tintin, aba eh, hindi ma-agnas ang hitsura niya. I have seen photos of Kristine when she wasn’t super fair-skinned, and I really think she will be very pretty sooner or later. She’s one example of a person who is a late-bloomer talaga, kumbaga, she wasn’t very pretty when I first saw her, and when I saw her in Pangako Sa’yo, doon talaga lumitaw ang mala-Diyosa niyang kagandahan.

Well, the only attractive thing in Mariel is her face shape. ‘Yun na!

#KomiSays: Mariel is not actually very pretty, pero hindi chaka. Average-looking, pwede pa. In fact, mas chaka pa si Toni Gonzaga, kung tutuusin. (Mas ma-ere pa nga si Toni, sa totoo lang!)

Also, there are many people with flaws on their skin, but definitely still stood out even without makeup is because they’re blessed with good features and good symmetry.

#RealTalk: Having smooth skin makes average/so-so features attractive, that’s why people blessed with great skin do not need to undergo the knife.

That’s all for now! Stay tuned for more Komi Rants on senyorkomikado!

WE NEED MORE REFORMS IN THE EDUCATION SYSTEM IN THE PHILS! Part II

GirlTalk’s sis blooming said:

As for the stress, dito (Singapore) medyo salungat ang experience ko compared sa Pinas. Sa Gradeschool, I find Pinas private schools more stressful compared to Sg public schools. Lagi nga silang walang assignment dito. Tapos, 4 lang ang subjects compared to almost 10 sa Pinas. Dito, all they have to do is focus on understanding the lessons for Math, Science, English and Mother Tongue (Chinese or some other language). Kahit pangit sulat ok lang (which is another thing I dont like, ang pangit ng penmanship nila kasi wala nga sila masyadong homework or practice sa pagsulat). The advantage is, naka focus talaga sila during exam time. Whereas sa Pinas, sampung subject, kahit Social Studies, PE or Homeroom, nakiki-agaw ng oras mo sa pag-aaral.

Feeling ko nga naging mas kampante ang anak ko when we transferred here. Laging naglalaro at hindi nag-aaral kasi nga walang assignments. Siguro depende din sa school, kaya kino-complement ko nalang ng ibang homework on my own.

I said on Facebook,

No wonder, maganda ang education system sa Singapore because they simply focus on MAJOR subjects alone + another language besides English. Sana ganito rin sa Pilipinas.

I think their history class, together with other subjects are taught in high school and college.

In other words, our education system taught us to become laborers than Filipinos.

My take

Who needs TLE, Religion class, History class and err… some other subjects like P.E. if these can be learned at home?

As a matter of fact, the Philippines should adopt a system wherein major subjects such as English, Math and Science will be the main focus, plus another language (Filipino and other languages such as Visayan (mainly Cebuano), native language).

Our professor in the English department is right. Our education system teaches us to become laborers than Filipinos. We are taught to serve than to lead, quoting our high school teacher.

Children are too young to learn about what TAX is all about in the Philippines. It could be learned at high school later on. Somehow, subjects like Philosophy, Political Science, International Studies and a lot more things could be taught later on. Somehow, DepEd should do something to make education reforms in the Philippines.

Well, do you have any idea on countries with the BEST education system?

I will mention it: Japan, Singapore and of course, Finland.

Which countries has tuition-FREE education?

Germany, Norway, Sweden and of course… Finland.

Japan’s education system teaches pupils and students how to be independent and how to apply things that they have learned in class. Also, it is a training ground on how to be productive and creative at the same time.

Meanwhile, Singapore only focuses on major subjects only: Math and Science. Besides that, English plus another language is taught, but most students choose the native language.

Finally, Finland has the best seat in this list. In the system, their education is the most liberal. They only call their teachers by their frist names, there is no such thing as school uniform, everyone’s equal and the exams are quite easy. Every kid starts at first grade, to ensure that they enjoy their childhood.

Somehow, the Philippine education system should learn a thing or two from these countries. But between the three, the Singaporean education system works best in the Philippine setting.

Quoting fujiringo-san from my previous blog post:

Sa ibang bansa, kahit mga high school graduates lang or hindi na nakatapos ng pag-aaral, binibigyan ng chance na magtagumpay sa field na gusto nila. Suportado pa sila ng gobyerno nila at ng mga civic groups. Eh dito, may diploma ka na nga, kung hindi ka naman galing sa kilalang school eh mamatahin ka pa. That’s how superficial we are. At kung hindi ka nakatapos ng pag-aaral, hahayaan ka na lang na mabulok.

That means that you still have to swallow a lot of grains to be recognized. Look at once of my relatives. He did not finish college, yet he was accepted in this publication company because of his talent in writing. This means that he accepted the job ahead before he graduated.

However, since this is the Philippines, what do you expect? You only achieve this kind of thing through nepotism and cronyism. In other words, superficiality on Philippine education is still rampant, until now.

My take on this issue: That’s because we don’t create a lot of jobs in the Philippines! We create jobs only for the elite, and the masa relies on the oligarchs!

fujiringo-san also adds:

I never believed in what’s written on my report cards. Those are just merely numbers used by our teachers to judge our performances. We know ourselves and we know where we can really excel.

Sadly, professors allow kiss-arse students to get high grades. Isang close-close-an mo lang sa mga professors, you get a very high grade. However, I am not the type of person who will be kiss-arse to professors just to get a high grade. At heto pa ah, there’s this certain anonymous student who has sacrificed her virginity to a professor just to get a passing grade.

Now I know why the Philippines isn’t an immigrant-friendly country, speaking of looking for jobs. Look at Thailand and Malaysia–these are upper middle-income countries, and they even managed to welcome immigrants, speaking of job searching. Why? Because their governments support their people and not themselves alone. In other words, they have a strong, supportive government. No oligarch presence. Eh sa Thailand pa lang, maraming nagpo-protesta laban kay PM Yingluck Shinawatra–well, the oligarchs and the elite class in Thailand HATE the Shinawatras (Shinawat is the correct pronunciation). If Filipinos will protest against the oligarchs who have written the 1987 Constitution, somehow, an honest president will rather make oligarchs angry.

Well, if I were to be asked, I won’t let my children study in the Philippines anymore. If that would be in the Philippines, it should be in well-known and sikat schools since:

Even my gay buddy said that “Bakit sikat ang Miriam College, St. Paul Pasig, Assumption?” Again, people may insist that it still depends on the student, but ask him and he will disagree. Even DLSU has its own flaws–it does not give ample generosity to most introverts who are willing to be on the Dean’s List, unless masipag lang talaga sila (well, slackers not allowed to be DL unless they’re just lucky). Also, you need the right set of friends in order to maintain your grades. Therefore, in college, the concept of “it’s in the student” applies–to some extent. Crab mentality and nega vibes are also rampant in DLSU since competition is also rampant, and the only way you could get a 3.0 as your GPA is the number of friends you get in order to help you with your homework (not joking about this one). In Japan and in the US, it’s different. You are given more room to excel, and there are reasons why there are Filipinos who study abroad rather than in the Philippines–they’re not as superficial when it comes to track record, credentials and also, if you come from a not-so famous school, you’re going to be interrogated.

Even colleges and universities in the Philippines has this structured vibe, which you cannot even see in other countries. In Japan, tertiary education is completely optional, since only the Japanese elite could afford sending their children to universities, and in a Japanese university, they have high standards. The good side is that, they’re often generous when it comes to scholarships.

I also heard that madali lang at chill ang mga subjects sa mga Japanese universities, eh. In the United States, however, tertiary education is quite difficult and more rigid. However, the Japanese and U.S. government ensures that these students receive support from them. Sa Pilipinas nga lang, students are often suffering from this STFAP policy. This STFAP policy reminds me that even BIR Chief Kim Henares (aka Ducut twin) is omnipotently present in the UP system–but this policy was reformed, after the death of Kristel Tejada.

Lastly, Roxyisferox said:

It all boils down to this one thing, and I know you guys are sick and tired of blaming to the government, but for the last couple of decades, none of our Presidents PRIORITIZED EDUCATION. CHED could not control the tuition fee that continuously increases. Cheaper than other Universities around the world, but still, our condition is a total mindfuck.

Well, if only our presidents prioritized education, healthcare and of course, telecommunications, it would make the Philippines a peaceful country. But here, we need to have more honest public servants such as Dick Gordon, MDS, Bayani Fernando, Juan Flavier and a lot more. We need more scientists, engineers and lawyers, alongside doctors and teachers to run for public office. Lastly, we need more people in DSWD who are generous enough to distribute relief goods towards Yolands victims, not crocodiles.

In the Philippines, we need PUBLIC SERVANTS, not POLITICIANS. A public servant is an advocate of a specific field, while a politician is doing everything to meet national interests and contribute towards conspiracy.

On Anderson Cooper’s reporting

I believe you, Mr. Cooper. Great to hear that from you.

It’s a great thing that you actually sent a message to Korina Sanchez–which is actually something that Arnito KlaviKords should learn. I bet, Atty. Freddie Villamor would love to be interviewed by you.

What journalism should really be

Guys, sometimes, foreign news outlets tend to be unbiased. See why I looked down on Korina Sanchez for dissing AC’s statements? Granted, CNN is said to be “for profit,” but journalists like Anderson Cooper and Christianne Amanpour are well-respected. In other words, ka-level nila sina Jessica Soho at Mike Enriquez–in terms of credibility.

Define journalism. It should be unbiased, direct-to-the-point, and lastly informative. It should not be rather, manipulated by personal biases. Who thinks that Korina’s strategic move is right? Carlos Celdran, may I call yo’ attention, please!

Sad to say, but ABS-CBN still sucks at the news department. Puro white-washing tsaka suck-ish din ang research team nila. In other words, the research team does not have camaraderie and teamwork at all–rather, there is crab mentality ongoing (reminds me of my own block section, to be brutally frank. They chose the wrong leader who did not set a good example, that reflects how dysfunctional my own block is–therefore, kung sino pa ang may dubious na personality, sila pa ang ina-angat. Very Pinoy typical rabid netizen society, indeed).

I hate to say this, but ABS-CBN does not teach people the RIGHT values. They will usually shove things that are not true, and as a matter of fact, ABS-CBN trains their people to become jologs, bordering in the jeje level.

After all, TV reception-wise, sophistication, news department and err… credibility? GMA wins, hands down. Face it, Kapamilya-tards! I am Kapamilya in some way, but I do not like the news department. I actually do not like how ABS-CBN trains their employees and TV personalities. Walang strict discipline. In other words, pagtatakpan at ipagtatanggol mo pa ang may kwestyonable ang ugali, hindi ba? Besides, TV Patrol’s revamp is actually a TOTAL FAIL because they brought again Kabayan and Korina Sanchez in the spotlight. I missed Kabayan’s show MGB, and he should rather be there–not in TV Patrol.

I guess, I have said enough. Mas marami pa ngang gustong mag-trabaho sa GMA kesa sa ABS-CBN since the former is even more accommodating when it comes to err… well… never mind. Mas good vibes naman ang GMA 7 kesa sa ABS-CBN.

No wonder, there are still loyal Kapuso people who are against DOS because… just because.

Ending…

Again, I applaud Mr. Cooper for his work as a journalist. More power to you!

What!? An 18-year old shot dead by someone whom she met on Facebook!?

I just saw this post HERE while I am checking out my FB account.

Actually, well, I really don’t like the idea of meeting people on Facebook unless these people are either from GirlTalk, online blogs and a whole lot more. You see, I do make friends with QUALITY online buddies who are worthy to be on my “good people” list.

I just think that there are some people who are being fooled by those who are low-quality.

I guess, Cheryl Dacillo was very unlucky to meet this guy coming from one of the poorest cities in Metro Manila. I ain’t kidding either, Valenzuela City is a poor city, and I used to live there before we moved to Q.C. in 2002.

Well, I personally believe that there’s NOTHING really wrong when making friends with someone on Facebook, but in my case, I usually make friends with them if they’re loyal followers of my blog, and also if I know them personally. Sad part is, I do not make friends on Facebook if they sound too jeje, and I had this experience before. Luckily, I just turned off my Chat because in reality, I really do not make friends with someone on Facebook directly. There are certain standards to follow.

Well, call me elitist, but somehow, I am oftem misinterpreted for being “choosy,” “not friendly,” “snobbish,” but in reality, I do not discriminate, regardless of your social status. However, if you sound too jeje to me, that’s the time I will start to filter out some people. I ain’t kidding, I do not meet someone directly unless they’re willing to. I do not make the first move. I just make sure that they make lots of efforts to impress me.

I cannot say anything more. I guess this should be a warning to everybody.

Long Discussion on a Blog Entry

Check this DISCUSSION PANEL

I think this is so far Roxyisferox’s best blog post. Look at the comments nga naman, I think it’s becoming more and more interesting as we talk about the hypocritical netizens who are lurking on PEP, Fashion Pulis, PinoyExchange and lastly, GirlTalk.

Roxyisferox said, in response to my comment about Lovi Poe vs. Majarot:

Maja is pretty, but still, bordering on plain-ness. Walang X-factor. Walang Sophisticated features. Damitan mo man ng Herve Leger dress (the same one na sinuot ni Jeane Napoles) mawalalan ng dating ang dress. I also believe Kim Bum doesn’t think she’s pretty. Buti na lang, nag-decline si Lee Minho sa RC Cola since endorser pa siya nun ng Pepsi. Now I realize why Popseoul.com described Maja to be starlet (binago na yata ng popseoul eh). Sad thing is, dinefend ko pa si Maja sa mga POPSeoulers. That time kasi, positive pa pagtingin ko kay Maja until I read from your blog about Maja.

These are my same sentiments on Mariel Rodriguez and Kitchie Nadal. While both of them are said to be “still good-looking without makeup,” both of them are good-looking just because they simply good look without makeup, while both of them have nice skin that won’t ever get along with their huge, dark eyebags. What is true beauty without makeup? Kahit marami ka nang zits, hindi ka mukhang sabog, but these two Lasallites I’m mentioning sadly do not belong to this category.

I also don’t think Kitchie’s beauty is “exotic.” To be brutally frank, mukha siyang mabaho when she became tanned and at the same time skinny (apologies for the term, but being morena never suited her). May isa pa ngang forumer who said that she looks haggard and puyat, and I don’t think mala-beauty queen or artistahin ang beauty niya. As a matter of fact, her beauty is on a campus cutie level. Mas maganda pa nga si Kaye Abad eh, kung tutuusin (well, when Kaye never had her skin color changed, she never looked stinky). Also, I even read a comment on PEX/Cha Gascon’s blog saying that Kitchie’s fans are quite hypocritical for defending their idol against the haters.

Same when it comes to Mariel Rodriguez. Look, Mariel obviously looks matured. She only looks like a faggot mainly because of her manly voice, only a milder version of Joyce Jimenez’s. I actually felt vindicated when one PEXer saw Mariel in person and he even said that she does not even look “that” good without makeup.

Both Mariel and Kitchie only became err… famous mainly because they have a backup. Kung wala ang mga backup nila, I tell you, they won’t be that popular (I saw it both in Bashing 101 and PEX, respectively). Also, I do not buy the fact that Kitchie is “better” than Yeng when it comes to rock music. Check out PinoyExchange and Cha Gascon’s blog (or my previous blog entries) ot find out more.

Back to Maja. If she has an unkempt look (or ‘yung magulo talaga hitzu niya, walang ayos, very low-maintenance), I tell you, mas maganda pa si Judy Ann Santos. Hate to compare, but Juday’s beauty is more on the youthful side. Sans the “mataray” attitude she has, I think she has enough charisma to be admired by both fans and non-fans alike. Even many people attested how good-looking she really is in person. Juday at least has sophisticated features (her lips, for instance), and she’s sexy also.

Kailangan pang maging “Majarot” si Maja para lang mapag-usapan. Also, she needs to look “maangas” just to have a personality, according to Roxyisferox.

Maja is good at acting, just that I hate her personality. Kelangan pa niya mag-angas mode para magka-personality.

Personality-wise, Maja is too malamya and at the same time trying-hard to look sexy (check out my blog post about hairstyles), but my couz even insisted that she’s awesome. Well, Majarot is not awesome. Malamya masyado. Even one GirlTalker said that she saw Majarot in Bora and YES, she looks really ordinary without makeup. I was right all along. Mas maganda pa si Yeng Constantino (aside from Queen Juday).

Ang dami talagang mga kapamilya fantards na nagkakalat ng lagim sa FP at PEP. nakikita na nila ang OBVIOUSLY PANGET sa mga idul-idul nila sa Kapamilya network, all-out defend pa rin and on the same token, makapanglait sila ng Kapuso talent na walang kabasis-basis, walang sense.

Do not forget that they bash Yeng Constantino for being a “wannabe” while they deem Majarot as a “fashionista,” “sophisticated,” blah blah and shit. Ask Komi Says on Instagram. I bet, he will side with the Yengsters:

20130828-191808.jpg

Truth to be told, hypocrite nga talaga ang mga fantards. Like what I said, they bashed people who never did anything wrong while they defend those who have a questionable personality. They still cannot accept the fact that Maja Salvador was only lucky to be in showbiz not simply because she’s the Dancing Queen, but it is because she belongs to an acting family. My momma’s side couz’s like her so much (like, I don’t see anything really special about Maja), while my pop’s side couz’s don’t like her at all. I side with the latter–in fact, Majatards are as hypocritically butthurt as the AAdiks.

Kat Viola is also right on being critical towards both Maja and Cristine Reyes–both are not respected in terms of attitude mainly because of several issues. Well, they’re in ABS-CBN, right? And speaking of casting couch, I bet, Maja is also undergoing that process, but no matter how she undergoes that stage, she’s still a starlet like CR. No substance at all.

I also do not believe that CR has improved a lot in acting. May improvement naman, but only 5%. Puro pa-cute lang ang ginagawa niya in front of the camera, and there’s one PEXer who said that AA will do efforts to look good while the only thing that’s special in her is her wide forehead, dimples and fair skin. Also, I don’t buy the fact that once you step in ABS-CBN, mag-i-improve talaga ang acting skills mo. I don’t see anything special on AA’s acting ability. As a matter of fact, maghubad na lang siya.

I personally think Venus Raj is stunning. If she pursued herself in Ford Supermodel of the world, she will absolutely be in the same league as Danica Magpantay. Venus has the height, the walk, killer-pose, broad shoulders, high cheekbones and strong, expressive, dusky facial features. Not all BEAUTIFUL women (by Filipino standards) have those characteristics. You don’t necessarily need to be tall and slender, but at least, you should have the X-Factor and sadly, most movie and tv female personalities do not have despite their white-jade skin.

Sorry guys, but I find Venus Raj better-looking than the plain-Jane beauty queen Janine Tugonon. These are my same sentiments when it comes to comparing Zanjoe Marudo versus Aljur Abrenica. Personally, I do not find Aljur stunning. Una sa lahat, nakilala ko siya isyung may nagahasa raw siyang menor de edad, and that’s why I do have a negative impression about him, but as time passed by, he seems okay, but still, I do not find him THAT handsome. In fact, Zanjoe has the X-factor to be called as “handsome” through his humor.

Back to Venus Raj, I also think she’s stunning as well. Her wit, sense of humor and of course, her intelligence is very impressive. There are many more dark-skinned or kayumanggi celebrities who could even defeat Jessy Mendiola or even Empress Schuck, speaking of X-factor. Sorry to say this, but almost every fair-skinned celebrities in the Philippines do not have the X-factor at all, only a few are chosen. Well, like what I said, this gal I’m talking about in my high school was the “diyosa” ever since grade school, and until now her beauty is still consistent–which other popular kids (the ones who are always tinitingala) in my high school will never have (typical halfies, chinitas, et cetera–well, most of them).

Not under-estimating fair-skinned girls, but kung sino pa ang consistent ang hitzu kahit paitimin mo o paputiin, no matter what happens they’re still the best-looking. Angel Locsin, Heart Evangelista and Kaye Abad, everyone? Isama niyo na rin sina Jodi Sta. Maria at saka si Des Del Valle. Solenn Heussaff and Iza Calzado are also members of this category. Dawn Zulueta is the best example–consistency-wise, winner ang lola niyo. Well, I have to admit that she is the typical ugly ducking turned a swan, and I really think she’s awesome.

Well, even though I have said that to become fair-skinned is not for everyone, same with being dark. Sometimes, the maputi girls who becomes tan through sunbathing will either look like Pammy Anderson OR Donny Versace. If they still look good, they’re like Pammy, but if it does not suit them (at all), they will end up like Donny. Look why I was right about being critical on Kitchie being tan. After all, she looks tuyot with her new color, aside from being too skinny. I don’t think Mariel would also look good with tan skin. Iilan lang talaga ang marunong magdala sa pagiging kayumanggi gaya ni Lovi Poe. While I think that Lovi Poe is really good-looking without makeup, she should not have been sunbathing too much. Also, she should hire a better makeup artist who won’t make her end up looking like Michael Jackson. No wonder, some FP readers really don’t think that Lovi is good-looking enough for them just because she’s dark, making her dugyot. I also don’t believe that Lovi is dugyot on a daily basis. There’s a GirlTalk thread on Lovi Poe and they even said that she’s even better-looking in person. After all, I think my admiration to Lovi Poe is just right. She sings, acts well… she’s a role model to me.

Besides, whats the use of pale-white skin while your facial symmetry is bad?

Actually, same question, but what is the use of being kasing-puti ni Lucy Torres if your nose shape sucks dick? Not being too brutal, but one of my fella GTalkers Lizzie said that she would rather be olive-skinned because she thinks it’s more goddess-like (Hahaha… Hola, Vina Morales!).

Prunella/sis Lizzie said:

I’m not mestiza, but my skin is very fair (I look like a boiled chicken sausage) . I got it from my half Chinese grandma. Super nakaka-insecure ang mga morena. I don’t tan; I get sunburn. Once na nag peel na, maputi na naman.

I find women with golden/olive complexion very sexy. Parang dyosa lang, kaya I envy them.

 

In other words: White Filipina.

Wow, I feel insecure, speaking about your skin color and your boobies (haha!). Being fair-skinned and having a big rack is something to be proud of, if you were to ask me. No wonder, there are many men who are TL (tulo-laway) at Cristine Reyes just because her skin in pale white (a la Anne Hathaway lang ang arrive) and her boobs are big as well (fake nga lang).

Sis Lizzie is lucky to inherit her fair skin from her mestiza de Sangley grandmother, but I have seen her blog and her mother, and I could say that sis Lizzie’s mother is also fair-skinned.

Actually, I would have been very lucky if my skin color is like my mom (mas malakas ang dugo ng native. Well, sorry for the term, but if you look at our halfies, mas dominant pa ang genes ng Malay race), but too bad, I easily get dark. But skin color issues were never a problem until 2006, when I started to despise everything “n*gga” (no joke about it, you’d rather ask my close relatives about it! I bet you will despise me for being “racist,” but hell, I’m no way to be a racist–it’s just that I am not a fan of olive skin tone).

[Side Note: I was actually cursed with tanned skin tone, thick wavy-curly hair, large hands and err… teeth color, maybe my parents’ genes are not that good when producing a female offspring–LOLz! I kid, I kid! All the good genes goes to the males, unfortunately–you may ask sis megumiii about this matter, though.]

Sis Prunella continued:

Truth is, I often get uncalled for comments such as “Maputi ka lang.”, “Hindi naman katangusan ang ilong”, etc… back home (kahit hindi naman ako nakikipagpagandahan) because despite my pasty skin, I don’t have the typical mixed blood features (which is fine kasi I’m 100% Pinay naman). Kiber. Marami lang talagang laitera sa’tin.

Well, sis Lizzie looks mixed. Well, not the a la Lucy Torres ang dating (BTW, Lucy has German, Chinese and Spanish ancestry–and both her parents are halfie-looking). My oka-chan will tell me that she’s only appreciated for her fair skin and nothing else follows. No wonder, whoever is really happy with their brown skin but has a not-so-narrow nose simply desire for better noses rather than whitening their skin, which is better, kesa naman sa maputi ka nga, hindi naman katangusan ang ilong mo. Oh, hindi ba?

But personally, I find sis Lizzie good-looking naman. In fact, she has nice lips (not a joke!). At least, aside from being fair-skinned, she’s also large-chested. Now, she should be proud!

Back to Roxyisferox’s rant about Kapamilya-tards endlessly bashing against Kapuso stars, it is quite true that they defend the more bland ones. Speaking of let’s say, fashion sense, grabe! Wagas talaga when they make lait of Charice’s fashion sense. DRAB na kaagad!? HAHA! Well, mas DRAB pa nga si Majarot since she does not have enough charisma to carry herself with her outfits. In fact, her body shape is like of a MAN’s. Nakakatawa lang!

And HELL, Majarot does not also have the personality to act as a socialite. Itanong niyo pa ‘yan kay Leonore Rolle! Also, ang Englishings ni Majarot, it pars with Janet Lim-Napoles (LOLz! Pors and Tsanel lang ang peg!? Hermeez lang rin ang PEG!? Bersatse at Loubou-TEEN lang din ang peg!?). Trying-hard magmukhang sosyal si Majarot while she looks jologs, bordering the jeje thing, I mean, malapit na niyang lapitan ang level ni Kubeta. No wonder, katawa-tawa lang if Kapamilya peoplez will have the nerve to pronounce foreign words in a wrong way… shit man! Roxyisferox said about one of her professors:

Shet! Naaalala ko tuloy ang mayabang naming professor sa Decision Making nung 4th year college ako. Ang yabang-yabang! Kung makaasta akala mo kung sinong belonging to high-society, komo’t nagtuturo sa UST at grad ng UP-Dil, tapos member ng Zonta International, pero ang tigas-tigas ng Filipino accent so much you end up can’t help laughing at your seat when you hear her pronounce PAAABLEEK SKOOOOL SEEESTEHM. We can even sense as well na signature-conscious siya, but it did not translate to anything classy.

I remember my co-intern sharing to us the “-er” becoming “-or,” like for instance, when she pronounces September, it becomes “Septem-BOAR.” YES, IT’S FUNNY AS HELL, MEHN! You will laugh up to no end! He even attested that magsalita pa lang, JOKE NA!

Trueliling… I think that there are some people who turn corny jokes into funny ones simply because of their hard tongue. Basta matigas ang dila, matatawa na kayo sa mga jokes na corny. O kahit magsalita pa lang sila, eh joke time na! I just think that people who speak with a thick, heavy, native (very native) accent will just be a walking joke–and no matter how they brag about their signature stuff, they still cannot be sosyal because of their accent. No wonder, si Janet Lim-Napoles, hindi talaga siya mukhang sosyal (hindi talaga sosyal ang dating niya–in fact, face value pa lang, you will have the nerve to lash out, “Maputi ka lang, period!”), unlike the talagang mayamang Chinese (or middle-class), they’re better-looking and much more sophisticated without trying hard. I would understand if that was Manny Pacquiao–yes, he has the thick Bisaya accent, pero ‘wag kayo kapag English spokening bow-wow-wow mode na ‘yang lolo niyo! In fact, he has a better diction than Donyita Jenny. At least, si Pacman, hindi trying-hard magpaka-sosyal with his wifey Jinkee, and Aling Dionisia (si Puto-kape!?).

Well, the problem with Kapamilya peoplez is that, they become jologs bordering the jeje level due to ABS-CBN’s way of training them, unlike GMA. Look why I respect GMA–somehow, you can never remove the “sophistication” from GMA Network. I also think that GMA’s news programs are more watchable since these will educate you, rather than to make you believe in illusions. It’s a good thing that Pacman transferred to GMA Network, and somehow the other stars from ABS-CBN. If you happen to be a Kapamiya-turned-Kapuso, chances are, if you are packaged as “sosyal” way back in ABS-CBN, you are still sosyal if you transfer to GMA. No wonder, mas behaved pa nga ang mga taga-GMA because like what I said again in my previous posts, even though they’re reputed to be “pabaya sa talent,” at least they have a strict morality clause on their stars. You cannot be a bitch, kaya if you make a mishap, you are dead meat, unlike in ABS-CBN, you are being concealed.

The aim of this blog entry:

I just think that these topics are getting more interesting somehow, and this is one way to educate and entertain a lot of readers. I will just continue with this if I have time.
