I have nothing against the Jejemons. I just don’t approve of the publicity and the attention that the fad is getting these days. It’s not even something that helps the society. it does not even do anything for the society at all. So why bother? I am not calling myself a Jejebuster because frankly, I have more important things to do that chase after a useless fad. It’s just that communication should be clear, correct in grammar and easily understandable by people you talk to. Communicating the Jejemon way is absolutely not going to help anybody conquer the world. I find it as a waste of time.

I don’t know about any other Filipino out there. I never used text lingo before, why should I use Jejemon texting now? I would rather be straight to the point and simple. At least, it got me where I am now. I am sure that non-Filipino readers of my blog will not understand what I am ranting about. Thank goodness they can’t. It’s really not something I am proud of. People have been making fun of Filipino English for so long. This just gives them yet another reason to think that we are all trivial people who just happens to have one very good boxer and one very corrupt government.

Pound For Pound

January 11, 2010

The country’s most popular athlete, Manny Pacquiao, has been in a lot of controversies lately. I am not an avid fan of the man, but I am happy whenever he wins his matches with other boxers. I am proud of him because he is a Filipino, and he has achieved so much and has represented the country well.

However, I don’t think he should be an actor. Let’s face it, acting is a craft. You’re not supposed to get into the business just because you’re popular or rich. Some people are very good actors. Leave the acting to them. I think Manny should just focus on the one thing he is best at: boxing.

Also, I think Manny should take care of his family more. The issue linking him to another woman is not healthy. This not only ruins his marriage, it also affects the life of his children, his family, and his wife’s family. If he has not done anything wrong, he should say so. Being utterly quiet about does not help because it only adds fuel to the fire. Look at how big the issue has gotten now.

As for running for public office, I still think it’s not a good idea. But I am not in the position to say so. Only he can say if he is ready to serve the country. As we all know by now, our country’s politics has become a tired an sick joke that everybody plays. I think that only those people who are genuinely willing to be servants should run for office.

For the Manny fans, don’t get anoyed yet. This blog is not just about dissing your hero. I also want to praise him for his incomparable boxing skills. He is a man of great courage and determination. Everybody idolizes him. Everybody roots for him whenever he has a match. This is exactly why he should take very good care of his reputation. It would be such a waste if he continued winning titles but not be liked as a person by his fellowmen.

Two months from now, Manny will be facing another formidable opponent in the boxing ring. His name is Joshua Clottey. I would have loved it if he was fighting Mayweather. But I guess some fights are not meant to happen. Yet. Like all other Filipinos, I will still hope and wish that this will be another victory for Manny. Aside from that, I’d still be looking forward to the day he faces Mayweather at last.
