Unusual

sorry po kung ilang days nang walang update sa blog ko, tinatamad lang siguro akong mag post dahil wala naman masyadong "worthwhile" topic(s) na malalagay. kanina lang while i was checking my blog traffic, nagulat na lang ako 70 hits, usually kasi around 40 hits lang ang average visits sa blogsite ko. and this is the reason; na link pala ako ni Manuel L. Quezon III sa blog nya. nakakatawa lang yung "salitang kanto" pa ang napagtripan. pero thanks anyway sir MLQ!

kanina bumili ako ng bagong bag (kahit kuripot ako, bumili na rin ako 2 years na kasi), mini backpack na sya. ayoko na kasi ng tool bag amf.. hirap hirap magbuhat. as usual Reebok na naman, pero hindi ko naman gagayahin ang orig na "Reebok boy" (yung prof namin nung college), halos lahat na lang mula caps to shoes eh Reebok, feeling endorser haha! sana nga makahingi ako kahit caps and shirt lang.

blog hopping lang kanina, saw the blog site of Shigeki, napa "whoa" talaga ako sa site na ito, halos lahat ng entries nya may kasamang "Flash" presentation; another thing - handwritten pa ang ibang post niya converted to images.

He says..
"I personally blame
Batibot for this epidemic of poor English reader/writers in the Philippines. I also blame the local TV stations who dub English programs into the vernacular simply because it would make things "easier to understand" and promotes so-called nationalism. I grew up watching Sesame Street, Electric Company, Looney Tunes, Popeye and English dubbed anime (such as Voltes V, Mazinger Z, etc.). Despite of that, I still feel nationalistic and I still speak Filipino fluently. I also blame the shift to Filipino as the medium of instruction in schools. When students graduate, the lingua franca of the local business world is still English, how can these students compete with graduates of schools that still uses English as their medium of instruction? Excuse me as I clean the "taladutdutan" (keyboard) and "daga" (mouse) of my computer..."

-Blame it on Batibot, Talkin' Tech (regarding the poor english proficiency of the Filipinos)

  1. Too bad they are switching the medium of instruction to english. The philippines was the leading asian country in english proficiency. Now, india is starting to beat us and start to attrat more investors!

  2. i dont blame batibot. i blame jimmy santos because he is the one who started the carabao english.

  3. yeah napaka unfair naman pag sa Batibot lang talaga isisisi. hindi naman iyon ang goal ng show, it's just to educate the children while at the young age.

  4. Since you're one of many Voltes V fans, I thought you'd like to see this RARE VIDEO CLIP of an original Voltes V TV Advert, which was aired back in the '70s & '80s. Enjoy! (nostalgiamanila.blogspot.com)
