Someone from GetRealPhilippines.com hit the mark about the current state of Philippine education:
If I have a child in the future, there is no way I’d let them be educated here (my wife agrees). Raising a child in this education system and culture, when you have the option of giving them a better chance elsewhere, is basically child abuse.
There are just too many things that baffle and frustrate me about what I’ve seen of education here:
– Why do they start school so late? (My niece has to take kindergarten a second year because she can’t start grade one until she’s six!)
– Why are they teaching my nephew in deep, traditional bisaya that even his bisaya-speaking family doesn’t understand?
– Why do university courses involve general studies not related to the course (e.g. a science student has to complete modules in art, sport, Rizal, etc. That should have been dealt with in school – let your students concentrate on their actual degrees and maybe you’ll produce some competitive specialists!)
There’s a lot more! Lemme elaborate.
One word for that law/bill: INSULTING!
Please don’t accuse me for being such a disrespectful, law-breaking airhead for the love of gawd. I mean, if you think that this Cybercrime law is “good,” therefore I must say that this “law” is very UN-constitutional.
I believe that it won’t be strictly implemented. To the majority of Filipinos, I hate to say this but this is the price you pay for voting such a person known for his popularity alone… due to his lineage.
Jusko, these sick politicians are actually exploiting netizens for their own benefit (which I actually despite in the very highest level possible!), and not to mention they’re only doing this for themselves! How selfish of them, though!
If you think that P-Noy should not have been the president, then why are you too deceive to vote him? Dahil lang ba namatayan siya? Bitter-bitter-an lang, ‘no? Hindi porke’t anak-pulitiko ang isang tao iboboto niyo siya kaagad! ‘Yan ang napala niyo!
Well, I have to agree with Roxyisferox. Sermon lang ng sermon si P-Noy, and me obserbeyshon is korek! Remember the Hostage Crisis. The ousting of CJ Corona. If you’ll read Roxyisferox’s blog, you’ll see her rants against the Aquino-Cojuanco.
I’ll post a separate article about the two sides of Philippine modern history. Hindi lang basta-basta sa mga history books ang mga facts na nakikita niyo lang. Kumbaga, I’ll post some of the pros and cons of each era, promise that.
I don’t like P-Noy as the president, seriously. Reminds me of bastardizing Marcos’s err… free speech restriction thingy? Correct! I believe when Marcos didn’t accept criticisms the nice way, that “style” was rather “bastardized” through the Cybercrime Law.
I think I have to vomit now.
1.) “SHARE” if you love Jesus; Ignore if you love the Devil.
Oh, please. I have been reposting these things just to make sure I do not get framed. But to think that “sharing” a photo just because you love God would prove that you’re “goody-two-shoes,” I don’t think it will test your faith.
2.) Sick children/abused animals as something to be exposed.
It’s like, “share if you care.” COME ON, we care, we have a heart, but excessive posting of murder and whatever gore everyone’s posting, it just makes us feel sick and BV-ed. For crying out loud, these people who are in need do not care about attention.
3.) Breast hoax/protruding germs
Yuck! Just don’t post these things! It’s just… disgusting.
4.) Boyfriend/girlfriend posts
Well, it’s only that I am NBSB…
Not to be racist but…
FILIPINOS over the PRC CHINESE when it comes to selling. You see, Filipinos respect the choices of customers (esp. gadgets) unlike the Chinese, who are going to force you buy something you don’t want.
Remember, this is the only time for us Filipinos to show our superiority and our right to be delegative in terms of selling goods. After all, the customer’s mostly right. HAHA.
I don’t give a FUCK if you’re a seller for a decade now, and I (we) don’t give another FUCK if you’re finding a very hard time communicating with foreigners. That way, I’m addressing this to overseas… well you judge!
Respect one’s decision
Alright, one of me profs cleared that me experience in SG was in fact, culture shock. Well this does not happen in SG alone. In the PRC, it is really prevalent, so you have to be careful. To the manipulative narcissists out there, better BACK OFF, you’re obviously tech illiterates who are trying to magnify not-so superior goods if in fact your elitist children have higher standards, so back off!
Yes, I’m very angry right now. I’ll still go for the 15-85mm lens that I REALLY FUCKING WANTED. I’ll sell the Sigma lens, whether everyone likes it or not. BTW, I only chose something that IS NOT WORTH FROM ME HEART. PUTA!
Apologies if I have to rant
I know it’s really very fucking inappropriate to rant in a blog like this, but please, don’t let those know-it-alls expose their pride. Their fucking, useless and nonsense pride. PANIRA LANG SILA.
Here are the most classical things that you have to know about this guy…
The story goes like this: It was during the book fair and I was a staff writer way back then… so I escaped, but he thought that I was against him… lawl.
The story goes like this: This is because, I should’ve hid… but now that I’m in a university, it’s impossible for him to hunt down for me xD sorry.
It goes like this: He is offended if you call him “fat” or “big eyes.” The truth hurts, doesn’t it?

If ever that guy again… comments back… this would be the worst message he’ll ever receive…
memegenerator.com|The Trollface’s message to him :3
Here are the faux pas that the homewrecker did and this is the only blog post where I’ll clarify everything I said… well, uttered by the self during the ICP.
Faux Pas by S.D. Ravenson
1.) If someone cries, you get annoyed but it’s a f***in’ faux pas that you get mad immediately when someone’s crying.
This is what happened during my childhood. If you’re really a parent, but getting angry when a child’s crying, please. It’s wrong. Only a feeling conservative know-it-all does that, especially if he/she thinks that crying is the most annoying ever. Well, get used to it!
2.) Intimidating other helpless people is s***.
Like what I said before, this is what the know-it-alls do to marginalized people. They think that these type of people are a “burden” towards them. I may sound harsh, but this is what the homewrecker did to me, which is of course, unforgivable.
I am very forgiving, but please, don’t be a know-it-all. You [should] know that.
3.) Being the person who “feels that he’s/she’s right” is a lower-class person.
This is the usual trait of the know-it-all! When someone points that they’re wrong, they feel insecure. They don’t feel confident because being a know-it-all is their way of life. Their day will never be complete without verbal clogging.
This is what I wanted to rant about: Know-it-alls are financially insecure so that’s why they would do verbal-clogging for their own pleasure.
4.) If you don’t want to shame yourself thru another person, then go away!!!
I feel blank about this.
5.) Being one-sided (not versatile for any stuff) should be adjusting because versatile people know better!!!
Dear past self, do you mean “flexible.” Well, the homewrecker is not flexible after all, and it’s obvious that asking her if she’s either versatile or flexible would only mean that she’s not controlling her mood! She feels like it if she would verbally clog you like, “So rude. Fuck that.”
The homewrecker won’t be flexible in any way, be it thinking or of course, sharing ideas.
6.) If you always tell the truth tactlessly, you’re frank.
The other know-it-alls, I mean. Actually, they’re more than frank, and that’s because they really cannot tell a single lie. Do you think, being a blonde n*gga is “beautiful”? Like, you’re like in a carnival, anyway.
If you so happen to come from the province yet studies in the big-U, take note: Those who come from the cities proved me wrong, that the school where you come from is affected!
To be broad: If you so happen to study in the state-U, you’re not gonna be a know-it-all in the wrong way. Somehow, some of the people from that univ. proved me wrong, at least. I owe them a lot… well they’re just showing good example, though.
7.) If you don’t have sarcasm, you don’t know how to ride on.
Lawl, riding in with the people is like, pleasing them. If you don’t please them like the way they like/want it, sorry, I think you have very low standards, and the maximum would only be a zero. Like how I ranted about Ross and AA (two contradicting posts, that is, read it HERE und/and HERE), it is really obvious that people are lowering their standards as if they don’t want to raise the maximum number from zero. Tagalugin ko, ah. Hanggang zero lang talaga ang pinaka-maximum.
8.) If you’re a *****phile, you’re weird and pathetic.
Being a pedophile errr… GTFO. I’m immune to those assholes. :3
9.) If you always think you’re right through “blocking” as in “bara” verbally, you belong to a belief wherein everything are rules that are right. *Sorry so that no one is offended*.
Oh, the verbal clogging thing. The homewrecker and other know-it-alls usually do this and they do it because they’re insecure. It’s really THAT obvious. They won’t be dubious, they’re really direct. I really can’t stand verbal clogging as a “norm,” since it’s a taboo when starting a conversation, and it’s obvious that the homewrecker is the number one violator of the norm.
10.) If you will fool me just like the other people there, I act your batch and you act my batch.
The homewrecker acts like my batch, and I act like her batch, that is. If I think that there are good people in her batch, well I have to retract it. The popular kids of her batch are much worse than the popular kids of my batch. Sila pa ‘yung maraming kasalanan, ha. However, the thing is that, the homewrecker told me that she admires my batch because there are good “artists.” Hello? I think she likes my batch is because of the popular kids. Halata naman, eh. Read this post to have a better understanding about my rant against the know-it-all people.
11.) If you please your friends that are not your genes and you are bossy towards relatives and your family you are feeling boss and trying-hard boss and you always think that you’re the highest rank in the caste system.
Pleasing friends but being bossy and arrogant towards your own blood relatives is a big taboo in my standards. You think that you’re the Brahmin of the family. But seriously, boss? God. I don’t like how you’re doing it, I’m sorry.
12.) Power-trippings is a punishment ONLY unless necessary.
Another rant against the homewrecker again! Power-trippings! Need to explain more!?
13.) If you are a “hoe” drinking and of course, not following the common dress code and of course, being unfair, you’re not a leader to all, you lead by yourself and your gang.
Shiz. Blank thought again.
14.) If you always think that you say is always right and you always think you’re smarter, then I’m smarter than you.
Homewrecker rant again. Yes, although she doesn’t really need to say that she’s “smart,” it’s obvious. She looks down to other people, especially to the marginalized people. What now if she’s in a section surrounded by popular kids, eh?
15.) If your attitude burns my patience, I’ll not tolerate someone who has the same attitude as yours because you might take advantage of me uhm…because it pissses me!!!
Alright. Most of these rants to the homewrecker sucked ass.
I really can’t say it directly when I was still in the period of identity crisis (ICP). Of course, the attitude of the homewrecker almost fucked my brain cells, which made me want to piss her in the most severe manner.
16.) If you tell the truth without fortitude, you suck.
Why could you do that to others, if you can’t do that to your friends? Cronyism? Obviously yes! It’s just like the popular kids who were know-it-alls way back then, if they’re the ones breaking the rules. Boo-hoo. Another butthurt thing again.
17.) If you said, “Huwag ka na,” back off and die unless you need it.
Damn. Give others a chance, a’ryt. Saying this the wrong way is for your self-interest. Boo-hoo!
18.) If you are not a good role model with a lot of dark sides, then you should admit your mistakes and hide your secrets instead.
Ooh, this is pretty simple. No need for answers.
19.) If you are kind to others but me, you’re shrewish and an outcast.
For the know-it-all again (not only you, HW!). HAHA.
20.) If I find your “idealistic” ideas a thumbs down, you’re idea will never ever work, period.
I recall the conflicting schedules and of course, the ideas which I will never approve. Of course, you know me like that.
21.) If you say the words that I’m doing or saying and you’re not even careful about it– shut up and relax.
22.) If you changed and made me intimidated, I’m not pleased.
I know, there are some of you guys who were disappointed of my attitude way back then, but who cares, right? I neglected those people whom I used to be peers with, but you know what? Thanks, homewrecker. Thanks. A. LOT! God, I know that you’re not going to accept my anymore, but yeah.
23.) Okay, kick your own ass if you discriminate other people.
Hello. I’m tired.
Alright, lemme explain myself
23 theses just like how Martin Luther did it. I ranted the whole thing is because, I don’t want to become one of the worst people discriminated by everyone out there. Drama.
The know-it-alls. I just feel like putting ’em down. xD
Unfortunately, I don’t have a camwhore portrait.
Yesterday, I went to my former second home. It was their foundation day (I only knew this fact when I went to college, gah mindf*ck!) and of course, I just went there to see the glimpse of the many improvements of my former second home. Unfortunately, I didn’t expect that the fair would be still the same, constant, and still, nothing spectacular.
Like what I said, this is where I grew up learning to be a Catholic and at the same time, learning the Filipino language. I love Filipino as a subject and even my teacher in that subject during Grade Six really encouraged me to learn the language more and more, and then… second year came. It was the time I started to love English once more. Don’t ever ask me why, because I already mentioned this in some of my previous posts.
I never named my high school because…
Of course, like what I said before, when I lambast a certain thing, I do not name-drop. Name-dropping is a taboo, and also, it is a sign of disrespect towards one’s privacy.
If you know what this high school is, don’t ever mention the name once you comment here!
I was bored
What I only did was, I blew bubbles and of course, plastic balloons. Nope, I just ate a handful of fries and of course, iced juice. Nothing, I just felt bored because it is expected that it would still be the same, boring event, unless if your friends are coming over.
I love the school, but what makes me abhor it is how it’s governed
There’s your answer people! Just so you know, I didn’t like how they expelled a senior high school student (or let’s say, two!) out of their interest (I have a feeling that they didn’t consider the dangers of being expelled in senior year high school) and welcoming the mean people. God, I hate doing this, but like what I said before, the former second home insulted me, by making my life purely hell when I was in fourth year high school. I never ever had a sip of happiness and of course, freedom. I also think that the admin’s acting “conservative” so that they’ll grasp their own satisfaction.
I know, there are some factors that ruined my day during high school. Arrogant teachers, popular kids in one section and of course, “that” person responsible for sectioning students… I would like to talk to that person in private.
Teens’ Day Dilemma
I recall all those boring activities. Oh, yes, ask my college professors, they make activities interesting and at the same time, cheerful. That’s what’s not present/apparent in my former second home’s usual activities like, QAD’s, sort of shit entertainment… I really don’t get why the admin didn’t even give the students the right to be happy, even just a simple thing? My friend here told me that the admin said, Shut up!” when they just wanted a graduation ball. But of course, I really find it unfair that the Foundation Day of 2009 was like, “boring” and “no rides.” Also, the prom thing! Hello, why do other schools continue the prom despite being struck by Ondoy (aka the evil asshole that flooded the whole Metro Manila, I feel sorry for AA Klenk that time)?
I really do understand about the students’ other experiences, but with these false conservatism they show to us students back then, I think it’s really unfair for us to see them following their own interests “only for us (students).” Crap.
Regarding Teens’ Day, however, has the most boring one: Sophomore thing that really made me angry.
Bore to death!
“Ginagawa na nga namin ang lahat, ganyan pa kayo!” Putragis naman, oo. Halata namang para sa sarili niyong kapakanan ang mga ginagawa ni(n)yo (para) sa amin! How unfair is that for us to see how selfish you guys are.
Boring talaga, it’s because, may acquaintance day pa, tapos boring pa rin naman. Super frugal ang life ko sa former second home ko. Buti na lang wala na ako dito, baka mamaya, hindi parin maganda buhay ko, so yeah.
My senior year sentiment: Always at the shrink
It’s really disappointing if the one responsible for sectioning students does a “fail” move. Gusto ko sanang sakalin, eh. Hindi ko talaga makuha-kuha kung bakit gusto nila ako na laging hindi masaya. Call me selfish, but what I’m emphasizing here is that, they want the marginalized people (bullying victims, loners) not to be happy. I do not agree that Bob Ong that the “weirdos” are the teacher’s enemy. Teacher’s enemy if that teacher prefers “sipsip” person rather than someone who isn’t “sipsip.”
Fail talaga, as in fail, is because I thought I would get along with the popular kids, pero ‘yun pala, totoo ‘yung sentiment ng ibang tao na, “Ay, ‘yan si ano, ma-arte ‘yan!” Halos lahat ng ginagawa ng mga popular kids ay, ‘yung mga moves na parang excuses. Sila pa ang pasaway. I don’t get why the admin supports them despite their “super-strict” rules. Eh, hello? Rules kayo d’yan ng rules, kung hindi niyo lang ma-improve ang quality ng education ng school namin. Shame on you. I really didn’t expect that you would be following the likes of Kim Jong-il or some other selfish, narcissistic dictator out there.
Yes, I know how mean I sound, but that’s the reason why I always go to the shrink and ask for advice. I usually talk to them because I really can’t stand those popular kids who are being “defended” by innocent people who cannot contradict their (pop kids) interests. Oh, sige. Sila (pop kids) na ‘yung tama, ako ang mali. Pero sila naman ang selfish, eh. They’re the real free-riders. Ang babaw nila, lalo na ‘pag college entrance exam. Call me elitist, but they cannot prove to me that they’re worth something. Prove to me that you’re the assholes, but make sure you don’t put the school down (or involve me there).
I really feel sorry whenever I hear those popular kids doing bad things. I know, it’s really sad, and they usually contribute to crab mentality.
Know-it-all people contribute to crab mentality
It’s true. You really do not know how much they put you down in exchange for their false “admiration” towards the popular kids.
This is what happens if the then know-it-alls become the popular kids. I wanted to address this “social issue” before, but my emotions way back then hinder me from doing so. Usually, they would pin-point that what you’re doing is “wrong,” if in fact, what they usually did in high school is breaking the rules, which is MORE WRONG than you think it is.
Kaya nga, eh. If they have nothing good to say at all, then they rather shut their mouths and mind their own business(es).
Call me selfish, but it’s none of your business at all
I’m just speaking my mind out. Now, what’s wrong with it?
If you (admin) are hurt with this blog entry, at least I have lambasted all your wrongs. Actually, the school survey was just taken for granted. Why, do you think you’re the best school if what you’re doing is only rules and rules, but not focusing on the quality itself? Super-strict rules do not actually “improve” the quality of education, they’re just hindrances.
To my fellas from my former second home, I’m sorry if you read this whole blog entry, but I just want you to be open-minded. You might not have knew the reason why I decided to end my friendship with my ex-best buddy whom everyone accuses me to have a “relationship” with, but that’s because I wanted to have a free-thinking mind at the end. Having a stiff mind won’t make you blog decently and of course, it might damage your reputation as well.
Next blog entries (just a try!):
– Why I ended my friendship with my ex-best buddy
– After I ended my friendship with the homewrecker…
– God forbid: I am not religious after all
– The Old vs. New Testament, according to Fail-ice Yawn
Please don’t lambast me for being too selfish. What do you think I am, someone who is a complete liar? (This is to my critics who are attempting another failing shot once more haha.)
Bad NEWS: The homewrecker’s finally emoting
Isn’t it selfish to be happy to see two people apart from each other, heartbroken? It seems that I took pleasure when your heart breaks.
Not to play safe, but I just… err transliterated everything.
I know this seems to be senseless news, but I personally think she realized that what she did before was wrong. She read my blog? @_@
Ah, alright. I get it. She was reflecting on what she did to my “supposed” growing friendship with that guy whom I admired for four years. I don’t want to get mad, alright. I don’t want to ruin everyone’s day/night, but yeah.
I never knew that she would possibly read my blog
Like how she wrote it, the words are too clue-ish, but let me tell you that it was written in a manner where a person is still in the identity crisis mode, being hindered by “expectations.”
I wish to deviate from it, but it’s like losing connections.
There’s another clue. She even said that “this would be our status from now on.”
So, literary. So poetic, it’s like I’m reading a Shakespearean play. Shizzzz, I hate scholarly, flowery words, a’ryt.
Another interpretation of that story
I guess it’s to a girl and to her boy.
I dream of that guy, which seems to be another indicator
Another drama confession: I simply wanted to shun him from my life once more, because I am starting to develop another type of depression called, “depression attack syndrome.”
Y’know, if I never knew the homewrecker, that guy and I would’ve continued a better, growing friendship with one another. I didn’t know that another fate would happen, just like the sudden attack thing… which is so hard to explain.
I know, it’s really hard to be part of love life. However, there are challenges that you should always face– and get ready for it. You don’t pull the time so fact, as if you’re forcing someone to forgive you. I regret about the things that I did to him (e.g., lambasting him due to bitterness, which is again, coming from emotion itself) and he regretted what he also did to me, but I don’t find his sincerity at him. I find hidden bitterness and grudges, which he really cannot let it out. While some slap someone’s face in a non-literal manner, what he does is to tease me with some insults, but now, he got tired of it.
He’s not the type of guy that I expected — he’s a frank but somehow boorish dude who thinks that it is right to insult someone, with or without intention to hurt their feelings. He also thinks that I’m a complete failure, but, so what if he’s trying to put me down? He is not a person to look up to. I know, I sometimes feel bipolar when I see him in person, but I just want him almost completely out of my life.
I forgot all those things, thinking that today is (not), and never will be yesterday
He’s mad, as if he wanted the world to end, whenever I speak up on the Internet.
I know, it really hurts when I talk about this. I am still crushing him, but compared to who I was way back then, I do not feel anything anymore at him. I don’t think he’s the right guy for me. He’s completely out of my life.
Find out when I write another, “Confessions of a Blogger” post.
This is under the category of Extremes and Randoms (Anything in Random), Free Elective, Fearless Forecast and yeah… it’s a free elective mixed of everything I wanted to post about!
Note: This post is about reviewing the past posts, remember Chobits recalling all the episodes? 😀
What ever happened in my whole sophomore year in college
I am a second year student in college, and it’s no doubt that my mind is starting to change. No more interference and distractions from other people, those who are NOT letting me post anything from heart.
I started to become feisty here in this blog. It’s all thanks to a fellow blogger who inspired me to post rants, constructive or not. I also learned to control my emotions (thanks to that venting shizzzzz) and yes, no more exaggerations in this blog. Everything makes sense.
‘Wag ka talagang magpapadala sa mga emosyon mo.
That’s one important lesson that everyone should learn. Learn it, be it the easy or the hard way, but the best way is to vent things like, “F*ck those <state subject>.”
Of course, no popular kid or even some feeling conservative know-it-all (my worst pet peevie take note of that!) is going to get on my way. It’s over now. They are now party people. Smoking, being drunk all night, but that’s no problem to me. However, I just sit down here typing on this blog. This damn blog which is the best ever. I would say that this IS MY BEST BLOG. My previous blog may be the worst, but come on, I personally think that this is the best blog ever.
Tomorrow’s gonna be the bloodiest pre-enrollment online. I hope my schedule isn’t fucked up, though.
Sorry, non-Filipino people. I can’t speak straight English either
Although people think I’m very fluent in speaking the language, to be honest, I’m not they type of person who speaks really, really twanged English. I speak it either the barok way, or maybe the accented way. No wonder there’s such thing as the “DLSU Taglish Language.” (Yes, in order for the popular kids NOT to be offended/insulted when I say the “other” word)
Good thing there are no lurkers out there.
Being able to speak in straight English means that you are ready to make a bloody thesis. That’s right folks. Your nose will literally bleed due to the fact that the English words has no meanings.
I feel very jealous when people speak perfect Tagalog. I personally think that it’s a big shame for you to speak English better than speaking your own native tongue. Ika nga, parang tinatalikuran mo ang pinagmulan mo kung hindi mo ituturo ang sarili mong wika sa mga anak mo, mapa-‘Pinas man o ibang bansa. Shame on Michael Copon’s dad, for teaching him that they’re “already Americans, so no need to learn Tagalog.” Hindi porke’t nangingibang-bansa ka na, eh, tatalikuran mo ang pinagmulan mo. Remember, other nationalities never ever do that for the sake of being a “completely-changed” person. Why, do you think even the Roman people in ancient Rome knew English that time (Old English, that is)? Latin may be a dead language, but of course, it is one of the oldest languages in history (good thing it’s not yet obsolete or extinct). Every word’s derived from Latin. Even German. Even French. Even Spanish. Every language has a word derived from Latin.
I think I was wrong. English may be the language of communication, but it doesn’t really make you an intelligent person. If your parents (of Filipino descent) think that it is a superior language, don’t get me wrong. They’re elitists.
I really admired the Fil-Ams of their willingness to learn their parents’ native tongue. Mapa-Ilonggo o Ilocano (aside from Tagalog/Cebuano), ayos lang.
The Philippines is the only Asian country that has this title. Being colonized by the Spanish and the Americans make the history of the Philippines more confusing… and more debatable. If we were rather invaded by the British, French or Dutch, we might’ve not been coerced to give up our heritage, so does developing the useless crab mentality thing.
We may tend to follow our traditions based on our faith, but roxyisferox commented on this post that I made regarding my write-up on how it is to be a liberal. Well, through a blog entry, too.
Filipina women tend to “keep” their virginity, but once they fall in love with a white guy, they’ll give it to them. Now how stupid would you get. White guys aren’t the only guys out there. It just so happens is because, with a white guy, you’ll get the following: FAME+FORTUNE+WORSHIP.
Worshipping foreigners (100%) is really the most dangerous form of colonial mentality. We reject our own race, we diss our own ancestors. Lawl, I really hate the fact that I really wanted to get out of the Philippines not because they worship white people, even mixed people who are white-skinned. Being white may seem to make you a goddess, but truth is that, the Miss Universe that we usually sent to another country isn’t usually white. Do you portray Filipina beauty as “white-skinned?” Of course, not! Alex de Rossi isn’t the only tanned actress to promote sun-kissed glow, but also Bubbles Paraiso, Nikki Gil and Katrina Halili. How’s that?
To those who love white-skinned people: Look at Jinkee Pacquiao when she isn’t fake-looking. She’s not attractive at all. She’s. Just. Fair. I would appreciate it if she covers her face with a very thick layer of makeup, rather than being so insecure on other women Pacman had. Yeah, she may have an improved face, but that would only mean that she feels so inferior when Krista’s around.
To those who think she’s pretty before the cosmetic surgery, you’re totally wrong! She’s only fair, period.
Don’t let your emotions eat you up|On Relationships and Couples
Like what I mentioned before, my maternal great-grandmother married a poor native which is unforgivable if my future child (especially if it’s a girl) will do the same as well [My future kids will not receive any good gifts from me if they marry a poor native and they won’t be invited to visit my place anymore, sorry if I sounded too mean, but it’s for their own good]. Sorry for sounding too mean, but marrying a poor native (take it figuratively, but don’t take this shit personally) will make you have many frustrations. Ganyan talaga ang may mukha. Bigo sa pag-ibig. Almost everyone who has the face value has a big issue on love life. Your beauty will never be inherited by your kids and will really start a fight with you if they inherit the ugly genes. Yes, I did that one time to my mother because… I was just joking. What she did before to her mom was a “slap in the face” when I did the same. I won’t tell you that thing, I was only joking.
Sometimes, jokes have meaning, too. Like the saying of
Nung unang panahon, hinihintay ang kabilugan ng b’wan bago ikasal. Ngayon, hinihintay ang kabilugan ng t’yan, bago ikasal.
which is actually hurtful to some people, but these jokes are meant to be true at times. Corny jokes? Nah. Green jokes? Make it creative. Real jokes? HOMG you just reminded me of Chris Tucker!
This best example of a joke becomes true. Like how I ranted the dangers of PMS, I am also an advocate of keeping one’s virginity. Contrary to that, I strongly recommend an unmarried couple who are expecting to have their first child to marry. Shotgun wedding or not, it’s a blessing. A baby is a blessing. Plus points blessing if the unwed but expecting couple are going to marry. Now you get what it takes to become parents. Forbidding the expecting but unwed couple to marry is a taboo for me. An unwritten taboo, that is.
Random Sharing: Eldest grandchild is a spoiled brat
My pop’s side: Full of narcissists and false critics. Even the eldest grandchild (and eldest cousin) is so far the most spoiled brat ever.
My eldest cousin Phil (not his real name) is someone not to look up to. He’s a maniac and of course, someone who thinks he’s too handsome to deceive women (but truth is that, he’s not handsome at all!). To think that he’s my cousin, to be honest, no one in my family (my other cousins actually) likes to work with him. I feel sorry for his wife (whom he just dissed and later on left) and to his kids. He’s not a good father after all. He’s just selfish. I can’t stand him, even though I really do not give a f*ck about him. Even my late grandmother had the grudges against him is because, he used to be the most favorite grandson who didn’t even bother to visit his own grandmother who used to spoil him. He didn’t even care about her condition. If I was really ashamed of myself for taking her for granted (because she was bedridden), I apologized to her, but I really don’t know if it was sincere. But because she’s forgiving, I thank her for that.
Sometimes, growing up a spoiled brat makes your life harder. You start to become rude to your seniors, you started to cut relationships with your friends for no valid reason, etc. which makes you the “poor” one. I wasn’t really the center of attention nor the most spoiled grandchild. I was the most abused so far. I hate to admit this, but I experienced a very terrible childhood. I was bullied because of my early growth (I hate being the eldest daughter, seriously!) and because they just want to do it due to jealousy. Forgive them? Well, forget about those people because I really don’t care about them. It’s not my problem if they are seeking for refuge. It’s not my problem if they suffer the same way they let me suffer. Rather than ridiculing them, I’d rather tell myself, “Paki ko ba?”
Those who were my “friends” started to turn their back against me. It’s all thanks to that toothless freak who was always late at school back then. I was really doubting why I had a very terrible life (thank goodness I’m not a rebel). I used to be a bitch way back then, but it was all lost, thanks to those feeling conservative know-it-alls. They’re the real bitches. They want you down. They want me down. All because they’re jealous. Jealousy, that is.
If those guys think that I’m the one who’s jealous, now look who’s talking.
Feisty rant: Feeling Conservative Know-it-alls
My worst pet peevie. GTFO of my sight because you’re only a mere distraction in my life (for those people).
They think that what you’re doing is a taboo. Well, what THEY’RE DOING IS WORSE than a taboo, that is. They were once the “know-it-alls” turned popular kids. I was even attempting to rant this shit before I started to write bad things about them.
They are insecure. They wanted to be you. They wished they were someone else. All because they’re jealous.
Where are they now?
Feeling conservative know-it-alls are using the name of the Lord to make some invalid excuses. They do it to impress everyone. They do it because they feel superior. What are they, promoting a selfish, jealous God? They’re the one who’s using the name of God in vain, which is against the 10 commandments.
I know that some of you are feeling conservative know-it-alls (FC-KIA) who are only manipulating the lives of other people because again, you’re jealous. Well, get a fucking life, you people. You’re jealous and insecure of those people. GTFO of their lives because they don’t need you. They can live without you.
I was turning feisty
NOT because I need it, but because I wanted to protect myself.
Go and send a hate message against me. You know what’ll happen.
Being feisty isn’t bad at all, actually. Being feisty should be done in the right place and at the right time. Kung dati, nagpapadala naman ako sa emosyon ko. But now? I would simply be defensive if someone attacks me on a regular basis.
And lastly, hindi rin ako magpapadala sa mga intriga. Sige, tsismis lang sila ng tsismis, eh anong use nu’n?
Feisty Ashley: The younger Gosiengfiao tells it all
I really feel so bad for Alodia’s little sister Ashley when she was attacked by an asshole who was falsely obsessed at her. I would really feel the same if someone would criticize me for doing “not enough.” Of course, who wouldn’t feel insulted if someone tells you that, right?
Ashley never dreamed of being a celebrity. It just so happened is because her older sister is a famous cosplay icon. She even said that she and Alodia have differences. Why, would you just have to imitate someone to feel complete? ‘Course, not!
Ashley may seem feisty when it comes to people who are criticizing her in a wrong way, however, it’s because she was introverted. She isn’t like Alodia, like what I said, who is more discreet. We’re not close, but it’s based on my own observations.
Asking too much to someone shows that you’re being too draggy. You’re hard-to-please. You’re discontented. BUT your standards are low, and the maximum would only be zero. Also, Ashley never sold her songs to iTunes. She uploaded it for everyone to download it. She isn’t making any money from her music. After all, she does this is because she feels like it.
I may feel annoyed when she’s turning feisty, but like what I said, being feisty is really your shield from your false critics. “The Critic” from fictionpress.com who criticized “Why I Chose to be a Liberal” is NOT a real critic. That person’s only using that monicker to annoy people. That’s how she felt when her false admirer did really tell her that he’s “hard-to-please” kuno.
Do you want me to namedrop “The Critic”? Here we go:
To be blunt, this is short-sighted. While there are some conservative people that go to an extreme degree, there are even more that do have a slightly more relaxed belief. Saying that everyone who is conservative are bad, is like saying everyone who is liberal are irresponsible. Neither assumption is true, and both are completely pointless.
While you might be able to blame your up-bringing for a period in your life, eventually you can’t push fault onto it anymore. You’re a grown adult, and you can’t keep blaming mommy and daddy for all the negative things in your life. You are ultimately the one who controls your life, and it is up to you to decide how you want to live it.
I know both conservative and liberal raised students who are on the honnor roll, play sports, and have a developed social life. Extremes exist, but they are often few and far betwixt the ones who have more balance.
This isn’t an essay as much as it is a vent.
Now look who’s talking. The word essay originally means, “to attempt.” You know that, right? Attempting to target a specific audience is the goal of a writer. Yes, this is an essay, because I attempt to target a specific audience. The essay may sound elitist, but there are times that conservatism prevents a person access to the real world. Look at most royal families. The younger royals are starting to become rebellious against traditional beliefs. They wanted to blend in ordinary people. They are sick and tired of prim and proper life. Remember, living in a prim and proper life makes your life structured.
LAWL, blaming my parents? You may say that again, but the feeling that having a feeling conservative know-it-all parent is very frustrating. You want your life flexible but he/she wants it structured. Sometimes, life with a lot of curfews (which are really unbreakable at all times) will just make your life harder. I won’t ever let my kids suffer an upbringing from feeling conservative know-it-alls who want to manipulate everything. I would really say a very firm no on that.
Saying that everyone who is conservative are bad, is like saying everyone who is liberal are irresponsible. Neither assumption is true, and both are completely pointless.
It’s an opinion, remember? An essay may have both facts and opinions, and sometimes these ideas get along with each other. Sometimes, there are contradictions, but that’s an essay, right? I don’t want to be redundant, but yeah.
I’m not literally saying that being conservative is bad. The only problem with conservatism is that, everyone abuses it. Everyone does is because, they feel empowered. Being liberal… makes one person irresponsible? Come on, there are some people who are reliable in terms of being carefree. They always have your back no matter what happens.
Pointless? There is a point, and I said everything. I share this to everyone, but I only target a specific audience. If you are a conservative, reading this write-up, you may argue with me, but please be as constructive as how persuasive you could be.
Overall, I might’ve used all my emotions here, but remember, arguing based on your beliefs without thinking means that you really disagree, but sometimes, there is always a reason why. Lawl, I just ran out of information. Fuck that.
Now I gave you an example of being feisty. That’s how Ashley felt when she’s lambasted by that fake dude… but THIS:
My Formspring haters and false critics
Remember the fake Miley person who’s actually a whore? I wonder where she is right now. Being ashamed of being fake and at the same time, whore? Dude, people are hating you because you’re an attention whore. You called almost everyone a retard and you are not even American either! You’re a Filipina lambasting your own race, and even trashtalked other people. Look, no one gives respect to you is because, you’re asking everyone to diss you rather. Whoa.
Those false critics, however, are sending hate messages against me. Well, I based again my answers from my emotions… I couldn’t almost control my emotions when in fact, everyone’s starting to raise their middle fingers at me. I know, they’re raising their middle fingers right in front of the monitor.
All thanks to that guy (my crushie who was actually anon) who actually started that shit. Gosh, I didn’t know everyone’s asking me very personal questions. Like my unusual habits that are out-of-this-world, because I was at that time in the identity crisis period. Of course, it’s really hard for someone to get up and fight like a man in that period.
Alright. I know who you guys are. Being really, really anons, right?
I know some of you are really mad at me because you’re popular kids. Popular in a sense that you made a lot of issues that almost damaged the reputation of our former second home.
I hate to admit this, but my batch was the worst during high school. The admin, however, tolerates those things. Gah. The admin’s really like the government. Useless.
Looks like I’m going back to Extremes & Randoms all over and over again

Unfortunately, there are a lot of typos. E-Mail me if you want a copy of the document in .doc format.
So, yeah. That would end this post. 🙂
My former second home is in Quezon City, somewhere just near the headquarters of Channel 2. Here are the clues: It is in Mother Ignacia Avenue and in Panay Avenue at the same time. (Do I make myself clear?)
Video from my former second home’s best batch.
If you noticed that most of my posts criticize this school, well, watch the video first how this batch influenced the whole community to do what is good and what is right. They’re the role models way back before the next batch succeeded them.
Every upperclassman is a role model… unfortunately
Where are they now? Most of them are finishing their studies or graduates of UST, a.k.a. the oldest, the most beautiful but the most flood-prone university in Metro Manila. Some of them are Lasallians, others are Ateneans, while the rest of those who were in the honors’ section are in the University of the Philippines (I don’t care if it’s Diliman, Manila, LB).
However, there are some questions that come out from my mind… the batch that succeeded them (where my crush for four years used to be there) didn’t really show good example. They were rather, those pseudo-authoritarian brats who just satisfy themselves by power-tripping, but that was only at the first place. However, some of these students really didn’t know how to discipline their students, OR maybe because they feel so superior. Wait, so this is about the ones who are responsible for holding “flagsems” and are also the ones who organize the students before any activity.
Gosh. It’s like a frugal world with frugal things. Anyways, it doesn’t matter at all since it’s all there. The “Magnanimity-next-Brat” syndrome was the mentality of most students. (Okay, so Magnanimity-next-Brat is like, Kim Il-sung as the better leader than Kim Jong-il who is unfortunately, a narcissist.)
Ranting against third-world life: Escape to my overseas relatives
Third-world life in the Philippines was like, the principle of my former alma mater. Okay, if they always make “bawal” rules, they usually do it for themselves. Themselves.
I never wanted to think about those things; I just wanted to be there (US) is because, I feel a lot more comfy than in the frugal setting where there are many “bawal” rules and shit, and I don’t want that. I just wanted to escape those bullcrap because I hate those critics. I feel like I’m home with my relatives there. AT LEAST mas masarap tirhan ang bahay ng kamag-anak mong hindi nagkukunwaring conservative kesa naman sa know-it-all na pakunwaring conservative, pero pintasero/a naman na ewan. Loving know-it-alls is bullshit! I learned that myself. They lead you to NOTHING, but these people really support the “bawal” rules and the frugality which is again, bullcrap.
Lawl, if you think I’m arrogant, that means you are close-minded. I’m just telling the truth. I hate know-it-alls, and I’ll never ever going to raise my children in an environment full of know-it-all and feeling conservative groups of people.
High School was never been kind
High school: This should be the best years of every adolescent’s life. However, in my case my batch is so far the worst (but the most spoiled). Do you really have to condemn good guys and expell them for their mistake and welcome the bad guys for their harshness? Bullshit! At least kung ‘yun pa ang bastos sa teacher (sorry ha), ‘yun pa ang gentleman kahit manloloko siya, pero ‘yung mga nagpapa-impress sa teacher? Anak naman ng pating oo, sila pa ang bastos, ang selfish na mukhang pera (Kilala mo kung sino kang buraot!) na parang paasa lang sa iba. Este, hello?
That is why I didn’t seek ANY help from my former alma mater. Jusme, bahala na sila sa buhay nila.
However, things changed after I vented
If my former second home used to have a very, very good reputation (most celebrities attended there), it is right now the butt of jokes and criticisms. My senior high school teacher once said that those who were in my former second home are branded as “flirts.” Yes, it may seem hurtful, but let’s just admit it. My former second home ended up producing a lot of academically-incompetent popular kinds who just had shallow standards. They only competed for what? Culminating activities alone.
I was only telling the truth about my life in high school when my friend’s jealous beau ranted that “I am ashamed” of my former second home. I was only being honest, that my former second home was once a school with good reputation, but where are they now? NOT as competent as other schools that provide the best needs they would ever give. Although these schools are known to be “sosyal” and “elitist,” at least they’re doing their best NOT to waste the tuition fee.
I hope the admin learns from this. Sana lang, ha. Because I said this before, that I really do not give a damn at all if they could excommunicate me.
