Every Filipino Should Know!

Just sharing an article that made me reach my boiling point. I have been very angry with Boyet Fajardo, the monster like filipino designer whose products and sole name are unknown to me, who humiliated the cashier at Duty Free and even asked the poor one to kneel in front of him for just doing his job. But I didn't know i will be very angry twice in a week. If you happen to know Chip Tsao, an HK columnist who might be Fajardo's long lost brother and who happen to wrote about my country Philippines as the Nation of Servants. You will understand why am fuming. Read on.

War at Home by (Cheap) Chip Tsao
“The Russians sank a Hong Kong freighter last month, killing the seven Chinese seamen on board. We can live with that-Lenin and Stalin were once the ideological mentors of all Chinese people. The Japanese planted a flag on Diàoyú Island. That’s no big problem-we Hong Kong Chinese love Japanese cartoons, Hello Kitty, and shopping in Shinjuku, let alone our round-the-clock obsession with karaoke.

“But hold on-even the Filipinos? Manila has just claimed sovereignty over the scattered rocks in the South China Sea called the Spratly Islands, complete with a blatant threat from its congress to send gunboats to the South China Sea to defend the islands from China if necessary. This is beyond reproach. The reason: there are more than 130,000 Filipina maids working as $3,580-a-month cheap labor in Hong Kong. As a nation of servants, you don’t flex your muscles at your master, from whom you earn most of your bread and butter.

“As a patriotic Chinese man, the news has made my blood boil. I summoned Louisa, my domestic assistant who holds a degree in international politics from the University of Manila, hung a map on the wall, and gave her a harsh lecture. I sternly warned her that if she wants her wages increased next year, she had better tell every one of her compatriots in Statue Square on Sunday that the entirety of the Spratly Islands belongs to China.

“Grimly, I told her that if war breaks out between the Philippines and China, I would have to end her employment and send her straight home, because I would not risk the crime of treason for sponsoring an enemy of the state by paying her to wash my toilet and clean my windows 16 hours a day. With that money, she would pay taxes to her government, and they would fund a navy to invade our motherland and deeply hurt my feelings.

“Oh yes. The government of the Philippines would certainly be wrong if they think we Chinese are prepared to swallow their insult and sit back and lose a Falkland Islands War in the Far East. They may have Barack Obama and the hawkish American military behind them, but we have a hostage in each of our homes in the Mid-Levels or higher. Some of my friends told me they have already declared a state of emergency at home. Their maids have been made to shout ‘China, Madam/Sir’ loudly whenever they hear the word ‘Spratly.’ They say the indoctrination is working as wonderfully as when we used to shout, ‘Long live Chairman Mao!’ at the sight of a portrait of our Great Leader during the Cultural Revolution. I’m not sure if that’s going a bit too far, at least for the time being.”

So, this is the famous article? And the Hong Kong Magazine says it is only a matter of SATIRICAL. Kala siguro nila d tayo nakakaintindi ng SATIRE?

Every words he used against the Philippines and for the abuse he inflicted on Louisa, d talaga matatawaran. Sobra naman kung manglait...parang d tinatablan ng kamatayan!

cge pauwiin nila yung mga katulong nilang pinoy, pero dapat i deport din yung mga intsik na nagkalat sa pilipinas...tignan lang natin!

mga magulang na intsik yan. making a person work 16-hour days, underpaid. practicing their profession in the philippines without the proper license. selling goods with poor quality. producing merchandise that later prove to be health hazards.

kanila na yung spratly, but don't they set foot in the philippines any more.

almost forgot that my hubby's grandpa was chinese, but he's already buried 6-feet under some land in the philippines, hope he doesn't mind my rage. i don't mind him staying there. hihi!

again this is sad :(

this is why i made a blog about pinoys - - http://pinoysbest.blogspot.com/. it's my small share for our country.

i really wish the global community will see Filipinos in a better light. we all want our children to have a better life... besides we are so much more than that.
