A Quick Rant About “My People”

Filipinos are so unnecessary and asinine, always coming up with crap like this to proclaim how supposedly “awesome” and “great” we are. Guess what? WE AREN’T. We are a poor nation with backward values and outdated morals. Listing crap like this doesn’t make non-Filipinos think better of us. It’s just a bunch of dumb Pinoys masturbating each other’s egos.

Here’s another one. WHAT IS THIS I DON’T EVEN.

It gets embarrassing. I just wanna throw a couple of electric grills their way and knock them out cold.

The 7 foods experts won’t eat. A few in the list: canned tomatoes (ooh), microwaved popcorn (uh-oh), and conventional apples.

Too unfit to run: Two-year-old who smokes 40 cigarettes a day puffs away on a toy truck.

His mother, Diana, 26, wept: ‘He’s totally addicted. If he doesn’t get cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick.’

Ardi will smoke only one brand and his habit costs his parents £3.78 a day in Musi Banyuasin, in Indonesia’s South Sumatra province.

But in spite of this, his fishmonger father Mohammed, 30, said: ‘He looks pretty healthy to me. I don’t see the problem.’

How ridiculous is this?! I would like to know how a two-year old child learned to smoke and where he got his first cigarette from. How is this even possible?! Why hasn’t this child been taken away from his parents?! Too many interrabangs, I know, but I’m just in disbelief.

Today, it’s the importance of having an exit alarm and deviled eggs.

But more importantly, deviled eggs.

deviled eggs

I don’t know why I never bothered to look up what deviled eggs exactly are when I’ve heard the term several times before. I always just assumed they were, I don’t know, spicy eggs. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Today, I finally googled it and boy, do deviled eggs look GLORIOUS. My mouth waters just looking at photos! They seem pretty easy to make, according to the steps and recipes I found here so I’m definitely going to try cooking/making them. I can’t wait!

From The New York Times’s The Minimalist: Summer Express: 101 Simple Meals Ready in 10 Minutes or Less. I’m not much of a cook so this is a really nice read for me. Quick, easy, and healthy meals.

Asylum’s Smart Women Are Bigger Drinkers. Ha ha ha. Hear that, dad? Mom? Boyfriend? I’m kidding, I’m not entirely sold on this new study/phenomenon.

There are two explanations the researchers offered for this phenomenon. One is that brainy women often delay motherhood, giving them more time to develop a social life based on alcohol consumption; the other is that higher-achieving females are more likely to work in male-dominated fields, which have cultures that are heavy on drinking.

Asylum’s You Got Us, Internet— Our April Fools’ Day Web Prank Roundup. Just a list of e-tomfoolery that took place last Tuesday. Tuesday was a holiday here and I spent most of it offline (in my couch watching CSI, what else is new?) so I missed out on the fun. Did any of you fall for any internet pranks?

J’s list of Best Fashion Trends for Summer 2010: hot pants, wedges, blazers, and florals. Just this morning, I cut up an old pair of jeans and turned it into a pair of super short shorts. I’ve also given my pumps a rest in favor of wedges (much easier to walk in). Florals (especially granny florals) are already a favorite. Unfortunately, it’s too hot in the Philippines for blazers (or clothes, for that matter). I don’t know why I’m saying all this haha.

What is the best acne cream? LOLOLOLOLOL. The summer heat is doing funny stuff to my skin, making it super oily (I have normal skin). I keep breaking out! I bought a bar of acne soap yesterday (Defensil. I picked it out because they used the Diavlo typeface on the packaging). I hope it takes care of my forehead zits.

Sleeptrip’s 300 Love Letters. The entire Sleeptrip site, really. Not gonna lie: it appeals to a sentimental side of me.
