the brownies

kung sa kanta pa ni francis m:

bilib ako sa kulay ko, ako ay pilipino

huo, we should always be proud of our skin color.  forget about the whitening lotions… the likas papaya whitening soap… brown is IN…

and you cant feel prouder about having a brown skin than by being in a white-dominant country.  funny how we filipinos are so crazy trying to have that fair complexion when caucasians spend thousands of dollars just to have tan skin… whenever i tell white people about how we want to be as white as them, they smile and act like they cant believe it.  so i would explain it to them that it must be because of the  colonial mentality brought by the  spaniards/americans to our country. most of us usually associate fair skin to beauty or even wealth

now that its more sunny than usual, you can see lots of canadians spend time outside… bisan gatagi-ti ang init, uyon gid nila magbabad sa gwa.  free tanning mo. senyorito would ask me to join him get some sun, but i always decline.  no thanks, i have enough, i would say.

we were outside the mall last weekend, and since its very and sunny and hot, nagpasilong kami sa handung nga part. pero ang mga puti, sus, gapalamula ang panit nga gabulad sa gwa kag daw ga enjoy gid.  then bianca told us about what happened in the morning… naglakat kuno sila dalan kag mainit… daw summer da sa aton. so syempre, nagpayong sila eh… sang sa may intersection na sila… na oveheard nila ang hambal sang babae sa front seat sang salakyan:

whats wrong with those guys?

abi ni tiyay, naga joke lang sila… ala-yari ka ni michael v… hehehe

then i have this experience sa balay nila senyorito… baw gina komparar nya panit nya sa friend nya…. with matching tupaday pa sang mga arms… para mabal-an kung sin-o gid ang tan sa ila… wala ko kapugong, gintupad ko man akon … kag mag-siling:

i am the darkest of them all

oha, di ba… we can change the world… and lets start that by changing the famous line in the fairy tale sleeping beauty…

ang ipamangkot sa mirror, mirror on the wall…

all together:

who is the darkest of them all

4 Tugon

  1. Btw, nice music diri… very relaxing ang chorus sang mga bata…

    Funny that we want to get whiter (remember the Biolink commercial – baptism), and others want a tan…

    Revolutionary: mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the darket of them all? 😀

  2. I really don’t get everything, but well yeah. we should be proud of our colors.. I’m white, but I’m pure pinoy.. and I’m proud with that. 🙂

  3. about the payong thing, amo man na sa dubai. kung may makita ka sa dalan na gapamayong kay gatagiti ang init, sigurado gd na Pinay na, hehe.
