Filipinos are giving way too much malice to a completely innocuous response and finding an excuse for outrage again. Ang ayos ayos ng sagot ng BGC kinukulayan ng ibang meaning.

https://lemmy.world/pictrs/image/4bdb1adb-6e8e-4c9a-8cfc-dc66df7af633.jpeg

BGC is simply promoting Banksy’s exhibit which will be held on MET, a museum that existed long before that business district was established. Whether Banksy represents anti-capitalism or street art is irrelevant. That doesn’t mean you can just waltz in on private property and start painting away.

Now, it remains to be seen if Banksy sanctioned the use of his works by MET. If that’s the case, you should aim your hate towards the museum (either for using his works without permission or for “gentrifying” his art) not BGC.

PS: And idk about you but Banksy is no longer the pure political activist he once was. He viciously defends his IP nowadays and his designs are even used with Bearbricks (collectibles ng mga millionaire rich kids) or a part of art auctions kahit prank pa yan. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with that because in the end we live in a consumerist, capitalistic society and concessions must be made, which is why I don’t agree with losing your shit over a museum curating your artwork. In the end, people get to see and appreciate your work and perhaps sympathize with your cause, which I believe was the point?

Yeah, I get what you’re saying. As a parent to a 5-year-old, it’s another example of “how not to raise your kid” that I could take notes from and avoid doing.

Yeah, the plan would have went off without a hitch if she didn’t whisper to one of them. LOL.

Don't call it 'dirty ice cream,' entrepreneur urges (news.abs-cbn.com)

“Yung ating ice cream ay napakalinis naman talaga. Kasi tinitiyak natin ang kalinisan, kasi unang-una, ang kumakain po niyan ay mga anak ko, pamilya ko at publiko. At saka siyempre ayaw naman din natin gumawa ng hindi malinis kasi kapag nagkaroon ng problema sa labas, e tayo rin ang mamo-mroblema diyan, tayo rin ang sasagot,...

On Press Freedom, News Coverage, and Its Effects on Readers

I recently saw a discussion where someone mentioned how the Philippines’s level of press freedom lets our media freely report on whatever they want. As a side effect, a lot of the negative news can easily make their way abroad and give foreigners lasting impressions on the country. There is also the appearance that PH is...

I used to put some r/PH guys in their place whenever they’d mention na “OnLy In ThE PeLePeNs”. Like sa atin lang daw may nag-iiwan ng pinagkainan sa restos sa ibang bansa CAYGO (not completely true, sa Australia at San Diego napapagalitan pa nga ako kasi mawawalan daw sila trabaho if I do it). Or tayo lang daw nagra-rate ng mga Shopee sellers ng 1 for being slow with their delivery (dami kaya ganun sa Amazon and other shopping sites). Pati mga lubak at terrible road conditions common din sa mga first world countries.

Pero nakakasawa na rin mag-correct kasi next week may bago na naman thread about it wherein the same gripes are mentioned again and upvoted.

Sabi ko nga sa random daily thread, nagpapasalamat pa rin ako kasi our country doesn’t have school shootings, walang spree killings, walang mga cartel or drug-related violence (mga pulis pa mismo pasimuno ng mga kaguluhan dyan), maganda yung familial ties natin (for the most part), medical care isn’t eye-gougingly expensive, abot kaya ang cost of living, internet is relatively fast and affordable, our weather is just right, madaming paid holidays at pinapayagan mag-suspend kasi mainit, I could go on and on.

Love this submission. Never heard of it, and I’ve read it twice already and still can’t get what they were trying to achieve, lol.

MMDA was stupid for accepting the reward and giving the guy a platform. Dapat nung inoffer niya pa lang yung 100k they should have refused because it just screams power play. Kaso hindi. Pinapunta pa sa office nila and made a dog and pony show of the entire thing na he’s rewarding daw their commitment to the cause and upping the amount. Fuck them all.

Edit: It’s actually a lot worse when I saw the apprehension video. Nagso-sorry pa yung mga nanghuli at nakikitawa na akala mo “night-out with the barkada”. Jeez.

TIL na nabili pala ng Fruitas ang Balai Pandesal and also explains why ang dami na nila branches.

Kaso parang hindi naman sila competitor ng Julie’s which usually serves mga generic bakery products like panderegla and choco-crinkles. Ang ka-linya ng Balai are Pan de Manila and Breadtalk na nagseserve din ng mga dairy and juices.

First time to hit the gym consistently last week. Spartan lang yung gym at walang aircon tapos puros HIIT-style. Hindi ko kinaya, laging half sets lang ako haha. Time to reach out to my former trainer and have a program made instead of a one-size fits all workout that only applies to 345-pounders trying to lose weight.

Nakakatakot yung knife attack sa Sydney mall. Kaya despite my frustrations with the country, I’m still happy na wala tayo mass shootings dito despite the lax gun ownership laws. Wala tayong mga trip trip lang na spree killings. Walang serial killers. Walang nagpapangap na nasiraan ng sasakyan just to murder you. Racism and homophobia are usually limited to childish jokes, walang discrimination or hate crimes.

Namatayan na naman ng former coworker, one who was there with us for the funeral last week. And unlike the latter who was battling GBS complications for several months, this one came off left field.

Lisa Frankenstein wasn’t that good, particularly the third act. Buti na lang malaki role ni Liza with some good acting to boot.

Ganda ng Shogun. Best TV series I’ve seen since Succession. Fan talaga ako ng mga shows na lahat ng characters kahit maliit lang role maalala mo because of how well-written they are.
