Kulturang Pinoy: Makalumang Pag-iisip Sa Modernong Mundo

2015 na at ilang buwan na lang ay darating na 2016 na siyang inaasahan ng nakararami na magdadala ng mabuting pagbabago sa ating bansa. Ganoon pa man, pasensya na kung hindi ako gaanong umaasa na darating ang pagbabago na inaasam ng ating mga kababayan dahil sa palagay ko, iilan lang naman talaga ang gustong magbago para […]

Ang Immoralidad ng Pinoy Media

Kamakailan lamang, meron mga naki-usap na isalin ko sa Tagalog o wikang Filipino ang tatlo sa aking mga nakaraan na artikulo. Ang isa ay iyong tungkol kay Vice Ganda, yung susunod ay ukol sa Pinoy Big Brother at iyong huli naman ay naglalaman ng mga kritisismo laban sa media ng Pilipinas. Madalang talaga akong gumawa ng artikulo sa […]

The Hypocrisy of Philippine Media

“Grimwald, one of the things you have to remember is that the human body itself is wired to tell the truth. You can always try to hide something but, unless you’re really good at it, your body will betray you one way or another. You don’t need to tell me the truth, if you don’t want […]

Are Filipinos Caught in a ‘Fatal Fantasy’?

I have written a few articles about the way that idealism seems to be so overrated in the Philippines even though people all too often miss the spirit of their intended ideals. Instead of becoming better people through perseverance and a sense of pragmatism as other fledgling nations have in their respective histories, it’s sad to […]

Is Over-Romanticism A Problem?

As a commenter previously mentioned, the unprecedented success of the show Mari-Mar prompted the rise of modern teleseryes. Ever since then, local TV had never been the same again. Now, all you really see on local channels are shows of similar nature or at least contains elements thereof. While I have never developed a liking […]

Telenovelas: Building Walls in Society

  Well let’s face it: Do the telenovelas of Philippine TV really have anything to offer the common people? I’m an upper middle-class Pinoy who lives with a lot of kasambahays who just love to watch telenovelas. While I hate said shows with a passion, I cannot help but notice a few issues with the […]

Why Filipino voters will still choose Jejomar Binay to be the next President of the Philippines

People who are considered physically attractive can get away with a lot of things. Some of them don’t even have to work hard at landing lucrative jobs. In fact, a recent study revealed, “taller men earn more money than their shorter counterparts because they are seen as more intelligent and powerful”. Whether they are actually […]

Four questions for the call center and BPO industries that need to be asked

Let’s keep it simple. Certain members of the call center/business process outsourcing (BPO) industry took the “offending” lines from GMA-7’s drama series “The Borrowed Wife” way too personally. But why dwell on a perceived slight over something that may or may not be true when there are bigger things to worry about? Because these bigger […]
