I totally agree with paperback according with the filipino entertainment and yah thers a lot of dumb people in the entertainment world and ther movies hav always the same genre and the shows, just as u said it.. im a filipino and my grandma keeps complaining about the dancers in the show..lol... but anyways, filipinos are good and hospitable people, for im one of them, u cant really say many children are in prison tho, but u can say that philippines is in deep poverty and a lot of people are poor, but anyways, thers a lot of good and bad things about a certain country, people and culture. we cant say that people are perfect you know.. ok thats all..

i miss philippines too, aside from ther bad entertainment, they have good tourist attractions and food...

yeah mostly pinoys that grew up in the states forget ther filipino cultures and some starts to get snobbish and stuff, but ther are also nice ones... well, as i have said, thers a lot of different people, one bad person or two or more doesnt mean the whole country is bad.....

Triple posting is a good way to get banned. Don't do it again

Well, we Filipinos tend to go with the flow. You can say that we go with our environment. It usually depends where we grow up and on the people we interact with. I mean basically almost every people in this world changes according to their environment.

Well I just hope this thread won't go as far as a start of racial discrimination.

In my experience filipino are racially confused, they cant decide if they wanna be asians or black americans ( no offense intended). Most asian i know dont consider pilipinos to be proper asians i'm sorry to say.

I've never understand why you're all catholic. Hardcore catholic at that. I just think it's bizarre for an eastern nation to so readily embrace a strict western one. I used to know some of the history behind it, but it still doesn't make a lick of sense.


i thought you quit the forums.


Eh, I still lurk when I'm bored and when something of interest comes up I'll post, I'm just not an active poster anymore. Topics like race, religion, and some other specific interests are likely to illicit a post from me.

This is a particular curiosity I've had about filipinos for a while.

It's not just filipinos, I think it's any culture that lacks a solid traditional culture to draw from, or any displaced for that matter. I think that's why you see asians in particular emulate hip hop culture, particularly those born and raised in the US. Sad, really.

It's just a trend phase or fad. They'll get over it when they are much older.
(I believed I read some articles that this is considered a rebel phase. Parents that came in the different country kept their culture with them. Then, their offsprings (G1 = 1st generation) tend to deny that culture they originally have and substitute it with the culture they living in at that time. Later, as those offsprings bore their own offsprings (G2 = 2nd generation), their offsprings tend to ask or curious to know/learn about their own culture which their grandparents proudly exercise. Then, the G3, rebels their culture again and G4 gets curios and so on and so forth.)

start making making better shows or movies -__-;;
look, you don't need special effects to make a really good show or movie
or if you use those.. then damn it.. make it look good. none of that "magical aura crap that looks like it belongs in a flash video--seriously

start gathering better actors/actresses
sorry, but most of them are just cheesy(but some of those girls are cute xD)
and also.. stop switching from english to tagalog!
do you guys have any idea how annoying it sounds when you put so much english in a show?

enough with the sexy ladies dancing in the background of gameshows
seriously.. a lot of filipinos are catholic/christians right?
then why exploit/participate with this "sex sells" crap..

start gathering smarter actors/actresses/teachers/leaders/whatever
seriously.. a few years ago, i was watching this filipino talk show.. and this actress said something like "i think math should be taking out of school because we don't need math"
wtf? shut that bitch up..


idk what the government is like right now.. but dammit, if it's still corrupt and still have thousands of children inside those prisons, then i think you all need the courage to face your "leaders"
and dammit.. if you're one of those filipinos that like ferdinand marcos or his wife.. don't come near me because i will fucking kill you(note, i'm not stupid enough to kill you in front of everyone)


[yes, i know.. i have a lot to say.. other than that though. it seems like it's getting better there. i miss the country =(.. even though i'm an american now.. i still care about you all ^__^.. so please don't think that i'm looking down on you guys, because i'm not. i'm just saying, keep on making the country better, ok? =)]

[oh, and how's Manila.. the last time i was there, i saw all those tin houses and stuff.. it makes me sad everytime i think about it =(]

hehehe the a hell lot of opinion right there.
but I agree with you guys. particularly with the "filipino entertainment" like the "fantaseries" GMA is working with, they say they have the number one top rated show, but to me it sucks, I hate There effects it stinks. and about there dubs I hate it. I don't even bother watching TV anymore and spend most of my time here in crunchy.
^^ thats for the entertainment.

but most of filipinos are goof balls, I just love hanging around with this people, there so funny hehehe ,

Not proper asians????!!!!!!
Then what are we????!!! Aliens???!!!!
Not even 5% of our population, wants to be like black americans. Those are just for freaks and troublemakers who want to act cool and they DO grow out of that. I'm sorry but I find you comment insulting. What's your basis then? The only requirement of being an Asian is to have your home country be found in Asia. Don't go inventing your own standards and basis of how to be an asian.
