"Michael looked all alone in that huge palace; there was no team to welcome him back to the stalls. Yet, as he sat back to listen to his scores being announced, his face broke into a wide grin and he held up his white jacket to show the name of the country he was representing: the Philippines. That little gesture spoke volumes. It didn’t matter that he won no medals. He was telling the world that his country exists—not just as the site of catastrophic disasters but as a pool of gifted and disciplined athletes. And, if they were listening, he was also telling his country’s leaders that Filipino athletes could be among the best in the world in any field of sports, with a little support."- Randy David (The Philippine Daily Inquirer, Feb. 15, 2014)

Staring down at the blue veins on the yellow of my 16-day-old chicken embryo, sprinkled with salt, of course, I wrinkle my forehead out of concern. At least this one hasn’t started developing wings or a beak yet. Finally, I take a bite and get it over with.
Have you ever tried balut, a common street food in the Philippines?

pepediokno:

“Bourne Legacy” director Tony Gilroy once said of Manila, “It’s just so colorful and ugly and gritty, raw and stinky and crowded.”

It’s the kind of statement that you’d expect would land Gilroy before a mob of angry Filipinos, but the quote, which was uttered on PBS’ “Charlie Rose Show” early this year, barely made a blip. There was no outrage — none of the jeers Lucy Liu got when she said she didn’t want to get dark because it would make her look “a little Filipino;” no calls by Malacañang for a public apology, as the Palace did when Teri Hatcher’s character on “Desperate Housewives” asked to check her doctor’s diplomas “to make sure that they’re not from some med school in the Philippines;” and no threats of a persona non grata declaration, as Hong Kong columnist Chip Tsao received when he called the country a “nation of servants.”

Perhaps it’s because what Gilroy said is true. Even in the city’s brightest corners, I’d be hard-pressed to find someone who’d argue that Metro Manila, this chaotic urban sprawl of 13 million inhabitants, isn’t gritty and raw, and stinky, and crowded. Visitors are stunned by the traffic, the poverty, and the collocation of shanties and skyscrapers. A Singaporean tourist I met this week, speaking on the shambles of the city’s heritage sites, exclaimed, “There’s nothing here!” At least Filipinos are a heck-load fun, he said. This was his consolation.

I’m reminded of a conversation I had two years ago. I was walking in Ho Chi Minh with a group of folks I met at a film conference when I was introduced to a Swedish math lecturer who had spent a few months teaching in the Philippines. He started telling me about his time in the country, and he uttered the most poetic description of our 7,107 islands that I’ve ever heard.

He said, “The Philippines is such a crazy place, and yet you meet the sanest people in the world there.”

Dude is this that same fucking flood in the Philippines?

Like the same one where that dude was pretending to be a mermaid?

Lololol

Filipinos give no fucks.

This is how you make the best of a bad situation. 

Also, the one with the kids using computers while waist-deep in water. 

Because it’s just flood, and we’re Filipinos.
