We need to talk about that Kwentong Jollibee Valentines ad!

Napakasakit! The latest Jollibee ad hits to the core! Watch the ad first. Spoilers follow so no peeking! 🙂 Sadness… Well, si girl naman kasi. How dreadful for the guy, but what to do when you are in the girl’s shoes?? Thus, the age-old relationship question that keeps us perennially flumoxed: Can a boy and […]

Maxine Medina just simply wasn’t Miss Universe material

Pia Wurtzbach was a tough act to follow. But then again, that is why she was Miss Universe 2016 — because she was an exceptional one. It is understandable, of course, that Filipinos would cheer on Maxine Medina as this year’s Miss Universe pageant transpired. But the fact is, Maxine proved to be not up […]

What did the women in the #WomensMarch rallies REALLY want?

Ahhh, the perenial question: What do women want? I hear a lot of my male friends ask this question. It seems we like to spend a lot of time and energy verbalizing our issues and then get upset when our partners contribute to the conversation in their usual infernal “solution mode”. The boys, of course, […]

The moronism in the Yellow Camp’s petition to the Miss Universe organizers

Of course no less than Rappler would be among the first mainstream media outlets to break the “news” about the Yellow Camp’s petition to the Miss Universe organizers to cancel this year’s pageant to be held in Manila. In recent months, chauvinism, brutal shaming, rape jokes and a sweeping disregard for women as persons deserving […]

Are we just gonna leave the Opposition to the Yellowtards to run?

I support the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte. Finally, the Philippines has a truly badass leader — not another one of those prayerful pa-pious effect bleeding-heart pa-liberal idiots who had, over the last couple of decades, turned the Philippines into an emotard society of whiney spoiled brats tapping out their tantrums on their iPads everyday. […]

The slow noisy demise of the Cult of Yellow

I’ve been observing my Facebook and Twitter timelines over the last couple of weeks. It could be because of the people I follow and the friends I keep, but in between posts and tweets about the NBA Finals and Game of Thrones, I’ve noticed a pattern in the way supporters of the Liberal Party (I’ll […]

Proof of how hopeless Mar Roxas’s campaign and messaging team REALLY is!

Mar-tards just don’t get it. In their efforts to mount a last-ditch effort to shore up Mar Roxas’s stats (showing photos of him surrounded by hakot crowds in various stadiums and all that), they are showing just how disogranised they are and just how incoherent their messaging strategy is. In fact, the more they publish, […]

Use of Tagalog and other native dialects should be banned from Filipino political debates!

I watched Round 2 of the presidential debates (dubbed #PilipinasDebates2016) last night. It was really entertaining! Mar Roxas was clearly on the run, chased by the disarming wit and articulateness of Rodrigo Duterte and Grace Poe. Vice President Jojo Binay was also pretty sharp and, for a guy who prepared notes but wasn’t allowed to […]
