  • smith on Gogs Breaks Down A Song: My Only LoveThat's unfortunate, you must have an extremely exquite taste! It's noted. For someone acting like a tourist and wanna be served, you can enjoy something you like: [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JdEZoffm-Q&w=560&h=315] If you want more of the same, youtube awaits you!
  • Robert Haighton on Upgrades, anyone?Sarda, If the 'beloved' president Duterte really want to change things, I am still convinced he should and must start there (educational system in PH). All he has done so far is just peanuts, if not less than that. And he must also do something about the growth in population. You really will get big problems with that in the near and far away future.
  • sarda on Upgrades, anyone?And mind you, I hear that in Canada that the former Prime Minister send his kids to public school, with less bodyguard too.
  • sarda on Upgrades, anyone?34Hyden007Toro787878.65 So you see the problem is corruption or corrupt politicians, as I have said to Mr. Haighton, there is a reason why people are corrupt, for example, how many of these corrupt politicians are sending their kids to private schools?
  • Oratio Imperata on Gogs Breaks Down A Song: My Only LoveThere are gazillions of genre out there but Filipino songs are nothing but regurgitated and rehashed songs ... NOTHING NEW !!! Can't these people know we are now in 2018 yet they are still singing songs of the 70s? TOTALLY SICK .. ABSOLUTELY UNCREATIVE ...
  • Oratio Imperata on Upgrades, anyone?Filipinos go abroad to SURRENDER and APPLY FOR RE-COLONIZATION of their country of choice SO THEIR LIVES CAN BE RUN LIKE HEAVEN than run by Filipinos like HELL ... Filipinos lost their patriotism and nationalism. They do not even like their faces ... and their brown skin color ... and their language ... They hate themselves so much that they fake their visa applications ... stand long lines at Vicky Belo to change their color and faces ...
  • Oratio Imperata on Gogs Breaks Down A Song: My Only LoveThank goodness I got 10 fingers to count and the link you just gave me are nothing but countmore not countless ... so not much ... nothing doing ... STILL .... GOT TALENT? NONE.
  • sarda on Upgrades, anyone?Robert Haighton The only significant quality difference is that private schools are for the rich elites where students are taught early in life that they are special and privilege and the public schools are for the less fortunate. So with this standard view of the school system, so many Pilipino parents would like to send their children to private school, even if it means being corrupt or going abroad to work. What Pilipinos doesn't know that by sending their kids to private school, private school gets the money and they can make their own improvement whatever that is, while public...
  • Robert Haighton on Upgrades, anyone?Sarda, apart from "prestige" and probably tuition fees, what is the - main - difference(s) between public & private schools in PH? Is there a significant quality difference, as in you (as pupil/student) are taught better and more in lign with reality or ....? What I get from visiting and reading some PH school websites, they still put god in the center of the universe. That is not about reality, not about science and not about academics, right?
  • 34Hyden007Toro787878.65 on Upgrades, anyone?We have to create opportunities at home, for people to avail of...if people have good jobs at home; they will not leave home and families to become exploited workers abroad. As I had said: industrialization is the key. Innovation to produce industries/jobs. The government cannot establish industries. It is the private individuals, who produce industries. All we do is politics; the Politics of Personal Destruction. Once these corrupt politicians are in power: they steal !
  • sarda on Blame on Duterte government for Ph peso depreciation UNFOUNDEDIf the Pilipino don't understand the money system economy, which clearly they don't, then the Capitalist system is not for them.
  • sarda on Upgrades, anyone?"Solve the problem….don’t fight against the problem !" Support the public school system.
  • 33Hyden007Toro675655.223 on Trixie Cruz Angeles and her fake news page Metro Manila Daily NewsPorky Drilon, who is a Hacienda Luisita Swine, is the worst DAP, PDAF recipient in the previous Aquino era. Drilon has grown fat on our taxpayers' money, like a swine. Gorging everything that he see in the national budget. If you are not wise enough treading in the social media; you will end up with libel charges; end up with trolls on your tail; or worse, end up with viruses in your computer. So watch out ... use the social media with your common sense !
  • 76Hyden007Toro675443.321 on Gogs Breaks Down A Song: My Only LoveI love music of all shades. But, todays's music, is more of a noise, with senseless words in them... I cannot understand the millennials. They seem to love this kind of music !
  • 23Hyden007Toro8989876.32 on Upgrades, anyone?@sarda: What are we doing about it ? People want to go abroad for better opportunities, and hope for better life. Most end up as being exploited as worst as slaves. The Mexicans and the South Americans climb over the U.S./Mexico border wall, with the thoughts of better opportunities and better lives in the U.S. Most end up as exploited manual laborers in farms and other low level employers. Most live below the human level of living in the U.S. Same problem with Filipino OFWs. The point here is not to complain, but to do something to give solution to...
  • smith on Gogs Breaks Down A Song: My Only Love"FILIPINOS GOT NO TALENT !!! That is a fact !!!" Not quite, but I agree with you, "THE ‘TOOPID FILIPINO CHANNEL won’t let them" or not letting them! If that is so true then why would anyone even bother to feature an album cover of a Filipino rock group, like Juan dela Cruz Band, prominently displayed at the center front cover of a Record Collector Dreams - Book Series by Hans Pokora? http://www.rockandrollarchives.net/p/record-collector-dreams-books.html https://youtu.be/RKTzygsiID4 https://youtu.be/1PeDP3vnDhE https://youtu.be/sJQ9uUDlfEg You may appreciate bollywood, but we have something like this: https://youtu.be/FOoXXqoXHz8?t=6m34s There are a variety of Filipino talents to discover here: http://pinoyalbums.com/ or if...
  • sarda on Upgrades, anyone?45Hyden007Toro98989.678 It's not about the educational attainment of the few "successful" Pilipino abroad, it's all about how Pilipinos are all getting treated by foreigners or locals of other countries. It doesn't really matter if you are in the nth degree or PhD, all the same, you will be dragged down in the same category as those domestic helpers, in the chimoy/chimay category. This is what happen when you support private education because you think it's "good" and public education is "bad".
  • Robert Haighton on Upgrades, anyone?Oratio, Its nice if a country has a few architects of its own. I know a few Dutch architects who are renowned all of the world (building libraries and office buildings). But personally, I dont care that much as long as a building is practical. Same goes/applies for sidewalks. Take for instance, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. Its a great landmark. But maybe not many people know who the architect was.
  • Robert Haighton on Upgrades, anyone?Jiovanni, "because PH has sh*tty pay on professional workers." Now, why do you think that (^) happens? Going to school from 10 years to 12 years doesnt tell me anything. It is all about what pupils/students are taught in school. My pinay GF attended a PH university (USJ-R) but she wasnt and isnt able to show that to me that she is academically, scientifically schooled/educated at all. Now, why is that? This is not about showing off what one knows, its about how to think. Being critical, being curious. A university supposes to train/educate/prepare a student for a decision/policy making...
  • joeld on Upgrades, anyone?It was not a choice. It was assigned. Nevertheless, it does what is expected of it, with enough patience. What can I say.... its "old" according to today's standards.
  • joeld on Upgrades, anyone?No such thing as a perfect product, is there? This is my idea of an ideal product: With normal usage. Maintain as per manufacturer spec (wear parts replaceable, etc). When something within the product malfunctions, it should be easily replaceable with parts available. In the event that manufacturer needs to improve on the product then upgrade parts should be ready and available. Replacement of the whole product should only come as a last option (improper use, accident, etc).
  • Oratio Imperata on Upgrades, anyone?A Thinkpad? That is so quaint.
  • Oratio Imperata on Upgrades, anyone?LET US NOT TALK ABOUT BRAIN DRAIN because there is no brain to drain in the Philippines ... Philippine Doctors downgrade to Nurse because Nursing is the highest attainable profession to Filipinos. Do not even go to PhDoctors because they are not good doctors. There are no PhDoctors at Kaiser. But plenty of tulak-tulak kariton in Kaiser as what my GF told me which is quiet true. The tulak-tulak kariton and hugas-puwet at American Hospitals are usually blacks, Filipinos and Hispanics.
  • Oratio Imperata on Upgrades, anyone?ONLY VERY FEW FILIPINO DOCTORS in the U.S. Those that patronize them are only FILIPINOS never other ethnic group except illegal immigrants from south of the border ... Americans consult with Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Thai doctors never they go to Filipino doctors. Americans eat Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Thai RESTAURANTS but never FILIPINO RESTAURANTS. Even 2nd-Gen Filipinos do not eat at FILIPINO RESTAURANTS. Most of all I do not go to any Filipino establishments because the Filipinos there DO NOT SMILE. They smile at me because I am white but never to my girlfriend who is a Filipina....

  • sarda on Blame on Duterte government for Ph peso depreciation UNFOUNDEDIt's okay to be dependent on OFWs as long as they are happy to take on the role of martyrs and saints, this is the only solution of the the government can give, who knows one day Duterte will also hail them as heroes for enduring pain and hardship, just as all the past leadership have done because they can't do anything much, but we all know that when Pilipinos are praised as heroes, they are all smile and hands clapping.
  • 45Hyden007Toro98989.678 on Upgrades, anyone?@Robert Haighton: My late brother was a medical doctor graduate from the University of the Philippines, in the '60s. He passed the U.S./ ECFMG test in the next year. He went to the U.S. for medical internship and residency. He studied further at NorthWestern University and Loyola University in Illinois, U.S.A. Then, he became a Cardiologist. He was a good Heart Surgeon/Cardiologist. He practiced in the U.S. for more than 30 years, retired, and passed away last year. There are many good Filipino medical doctors, practicing medicine in the U.S. and Canada. I have known a Filipino Research Engineer working...
  • Jiovanni Jalolina on Upgrades, anyone?A Thinkpad laptop? A Patrician choice my friend
  • Jiovanni Jalolina on Upgrades, anyone?@Robert Yes, you are partly correct. Statistically, majority of OFWs are domestic helpers and they have the most exposure in philippine media because they experience the worse conditions. I have to disagree with you when you said PH doesn't suffer from brain drain. Let me tell you, we also have professional workers like doctors, architects, civil engineers, software devs, meteorologist leaving the country but probably they want to be left alone. probably they already renounced their Filipno citizenship and took their family with them too because PH has sh*tty pay on professional workers. The only constraint for the Filipino professional...
  • Oratio Imperata on Blame on Duterte government for Ph peso depreciation UNFOUNDEDHere is quick-and-dirty calculation why OFW is better. 1. 10% of Filipinos are exported abroad. That is 11,000,000 Filipinos are slaves. 2. each of 10% Filipinos has, conservatively, one sibling, a father and a mother that is 4 of them 3. 4 multiplied by 11,000,000 equals 44,000,000 Filipinos 4. divide 44,000,000 by 110,000,000 equals .4 ... conveerting that into percent that is 40% of Filipinos relies on OFW !!!! THAT IS A LOT OF FILIPINOS !!!! nearly half close to half are dependent on OFWs 5. So what remains are 60% of Filipinos .... according to Duterte the unemployment rate...
