Manila is the center of the Pinoy universe

...This actually explains a LOT of my mom's Cultural Posturing and why she makes fun of the various non-standard-Tagalog speakers. *Mother's family lives just outside of Manila*

Another case of Internet Backlash. But this time, it gives the Azkals the chance to become Memetic Molesters.

Just discovered something today, though it's probably nothing new.

Idol Singer Sayumi Michishige strongly resembles Filipina actress Kim Chiu.

I'm a filipino troper too :) Although I've never really contributed to the site. I've been an avid reader for almost a year now! :D Glad to meet you all. Based in makati. I read TVTROPES when I'm done with work at the office.
In my eyes tropers and troopers are one and the same... Tropers are awesome and troopers can kick ass.

Welcome to TV Tropes!

I have studied in Digos for two years, so how was the place? Is it any good now?

Also, it seems the Corona impeachment trials have just been ended. I still believe he has done something wrong, but I feel he could be acquitted because the prosecution failed to prove that Corona was at fault. I could say the defense succeeded in proving him innocent as a result of the aforementioned failure rather than the defense's own lawyering skills.

WHAT?

Damn, i never though the Corona case would end like that. I thought he would be caught, pretty soon. Oh well, let's forget about that for awhile, and think about Summer- damn i remembered it.

About Corona, yes, I believe so, too.

Say guys, do you believe Katrina Halili Really Gets Around to the point that she actually meant to get pregnant so she can have the kid all by herself without giving the kid's dad a chance to try and support for the baby? I mean, what gives?

I'm not in the Philippines showbiz. So, who is she? Also, what do you think of the choice involving adding 2 years for elementary and high school. That's actually a brilliant idea, if you ask me, but we barely have enough money for 6 grades.

Careless Whisper should ring a bell.

Hmm... I think it's better to solve the problems in our educational system first before adding 2 years to it. People would prefer a short but quality education than a long but crappy education.

If the government is serious about trying to get the country's educational system on par with the rest of the world, they MUST convince people that the two additional years has MORE to offer than the current basic education system of 10 years.

Some ways IMO which can convince more people to invest in the 12-year curriculum:

You know, that system sounds a LOT like the US' school system.

Of course, the difference is that the US teachers are sick of it and they know most kids can't/won't use SAT subjects in real life.

SAT scores, huh? I wonder if you can REALLY use it in real life...

Wait... If you want to land in a REALLY good job, high SAT scores and a solidly professional demeanor might do the trick.

Cracked has a list of subjects that schools must teach in order for students to learn how to survive and succeed in Real Life.

Too bad our current educational system reminds me of the Allegory of the Cave.

You didn't get the idea? Well, it's the perception that our beloved President is such a slacker that she goes on a date with his girlfriend during working hours. Cue the Presidential staff showing pictures of him working inside the palace in a fit of rage.

Anyone else can comment on Janine Tugonon's Dark Horse Victory in Bb. Pilipinas 2012?

Most people say she borders on Hollywood Ugly just because the fan favorites MJ Lastimosa and Nicole Schultz did not win Bb. Pilipinas Universe.

But I think she exemplifies the typical Filipina. She sure looks ordinary, but that's what exactly Miss U judges are looking for AFAIK.

If you ask me, the less said about beauty pageants, the better.

But if you enjoy that sort of thing, then that's your prerogative.

Is it true that Anon supports the Philippines in its quarrel with China regarding the Scarborough Shoal?

I'm Filipina. You wouldn't guess it by looking at me, but I am. So hi.
