Relevant because I’m a Filipino lol
Depressed because Manny was the one who lifted the Filipino spirits and pride. Face it, what made us proud to be Filipino before Pacquiao? Nothing. Decades of corruption, 400+ years of foreign occupation and wars, countless natural disasters month after month, Murphy’s law to its fullest, the suffering list goes on. But watching Pacquiao made us forget about the hopelessness back home, even if it was just for a little while. I’ve never seen a Filipino house more lighted up when Pacquiao was on the screen.
“Winning is not a Filipino quality, definitely not at all. We have been losers since Magellan’s ship landed in Cebu on March 16, 1521. But the will to get back up after being kicked down countless times, through all that has happened in our history, now that is the very essence of being Filipino.”
Now that his legend has finally withered out, what do we turn to to make us proud again? All 7107 Philippine islands will once again fade into the back of the world’s mind and become “that country near China that likes to sing a lot,” despite the fact that our people have been a huge factor in world history and politics. We may lose our relevance, but pride is something that sticks forever. Red and blue, through and through.
But to lighten up the mood—at least Manny Pacquiao is the 2012 planking champion! LOL and out of this whole mess, #PACQUIAOING was created
Sorry for going off on a cultural crisis on a post, the delete button is right there lol.
Wow I usually don’t reblog stuff from my other blog, but…
This was wayyy too good of myself to not do so
I feel like a writing champion
It’s a little festival in which a lot of tents are up featuring different activities and whatnot.
There was a performance by the Rutgers Asian A’Capella Group (RAAG)…they did a little version of “I Just Can’t Wait to be King…” The beatbox and the singing and everything else was so much win!! I wish I recorded it lol
Or perhaps just Disney movies in general.
When the Lion King went in theaters this past September-October, I went there with a group of friends, all teenagers in high school or college. I expected more little children to be there, but in reality, all age groups were there.
I remember the cutest old couple sitting in front of me. They wouldn’t leave their seats until the credits had finished and Elton John stopped singing “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.” I remember a little girl behind me, bawling her eyes out and sniffling loudly when Mufasa died and Simba yelled for help. I then remembered her smiling, relieved when Timon & Pumbaa came. I remember a middle-aged man who laughed whenever Rafiki laughed and sounded EXACTLY like him. I remember my friend loudly yelling “RUN N***A!!” when the stampede scene started hahahaha XD.
So, yeah. I was surprised, and actually excited, to see the turnout for the movie. And I forgot to mention that it was in its fourth week running in theaters, and a lot of people still turned up to watch it. Disney can bring out the inner child out of everyone, and that’s truly what makes it magical. Disney really is one of the happiest places in the world. :)
Yeah I’ll put this up on my personal blog too, because it’s a personal story lols

I had put 7:25 PM ET originally!!! To those who were hoping to watch The Lion King at 7:25pm, I let you down because it’s not going to be on at that time!!! I’m so sorry!!! Wake up and watch it now because it’s on in 2 hours!!!
^ This is me being sorry.
But then again I wonder who is up at 7:25am on Sunday.

Considering I made this blog in the beginning of February, I think it’s getting off pretty well :) Once
hell week times 3midterms are over, I’ll be back posting my own stuff :o
lmfao i’m reblogging my own post from my Lion King blog
English, Latin American Spanish, Castillian (Spain) Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and European Portuguese. I can only understand like 60% of written Portuguese (and 0% of spoken Portuguese), but a lot of words are similar to Spanish so I see what it means.
