Devina DeDiva on the limelight

After Megan Young won the hearts of million viewers by being the first Filipino to win Miss World 2013 another scene-stealer drops racial comments on Young’s international feat making Ms. scene-stealer Miss Racist 2013.


The girl with the nose piercing and an overly-smudged-eyeliner look is Devina DeDiva the one responsible for the outrageous uproar of Filipino netizens. On her Facebook account Devina commented on Megan Young’s title (details shown below).

*The one in bold is her fb status. The other statements below were her replies to the comments of her fb friends.

This insulting comment received a lot of shares after being posted on Facebook (the date I believe was on October 1).

My opinion:
 

I’m being patriotic as of the moment. 

It’s her opinion. But sometimes opinions are rather hushed and kept rather than being let out in the open. I’m fine with her bashing Megan Young because truth be told Young deserved the title more than any of the other contestants in the pageant. Young undoubtedly stood out among other foreign beauties and graced her way up to the top winning her the crown and the coveted title.

What really irks me is her degrading of Filipinos with their work as DH abroad. It doesn’t make Filipino DHs less of who they are because of their work. It’s a decent job more remarkable than Devina’s racist notions. It clearly shows how narrow-minded her views are. If she really wanted to be noticed in the first place, she has done a good job on attaining such status. She already has the limelight on her for being recklessly imprudent seeking attention and fame from her intolerable bully-esque remarks.

And if Devina’s reason was to express her views then she must be one troubled lady deserving of the hate from protective Filipinos (a dose of her own medicine).

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).


If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
