Clinton Aide Shouts at VP Binay [hindi porket mukang masama ay masama na ang intensiyon! huwag kang judgmental!]


Vice President Binay
(This happened last Thursday.  A female staff from the Clinton Foundation shouted at VP Binay and asked him to leave the VIP area where  former US Pres. Clinton was staying before his speech at the Manila Hotel.  The female staff didn't know who she was shouting at till Binay introduced himself as the Vice President of the Philippines.  Binay Obidiently exited the VIP area and the female staff immediately apologized to him.)

What happened here is abominable on three counts.  First, there's really no point in shouting at Vice President Binay (or anyone), no matter where angle you regard it from; second, it's stupid of her not to know at least the Vice President of the country she's visiting; and third, she's not in her own country to act like she's some sort of a greater entity.  Filipinos, in general, are nice and respectful to foreign visitors, and we always try to make them feel at home.  Looks like this Clinton aide took the feel-at-home-invitation to heart, errr, a little bit too much. (Sisigaw-sigaw, nasa bahay ka ba, ha ate? ha?)  She should get a comprehensive foreign diplomacy training for chrisake!  Well, I know Binay is short and dark and, errrr... (***i'm trying to be nice here***), very simple looking, so I guess he was mistaken as somebody gatecrashing the event. Clinton's staff was just doing her job but it is not safe to assume that people whose personal appearance (or faces, lol) she doesn't like are there to mess up the event. And shouting is very disrespectful as it is unnecessary.

Well, shouting maybe necessary if one is really being stubborn and unreasonable and you want to get your message delivered.   That just doesn't apply to Binay.


Eto ba ang mukang gagawa ng masama?  Hindi naman ah!


Moral: Hindi porket mukang masama ay masama na ang pakay.  Huwag judgmental!  Don't judge the book by its cover (especially if you're not a judge - waaah, corny! XD).

The aide's disrespectful action doesn't speak for most Americans though, or most people from other countries for that matter, so this is NOT an anti-American post.

Byerts now! XD

parang nung nasa lrt ako, nakita ko lang yung kamay nung lalake na malapit sa bag ko. puno ng tattoo. Lagi kong tinitingnan yung bag ko, although hindi ko nakikita yung mukha nung lalake, itinaas nya yung braso nya para makitang wala siyang ginagawa. natawa tuloy ako nung nabasa ko to :P

hahaha! XD kawawa naman yung may tattoo, hehe, napagbintangan. pero mabuti narin ang nag-iingat.

ako naman sa may palengke, nagmamadali akong makauwi. may kasabay akong babae na may dalang shoulder bag. may kasikipan sa bangketa kaya nasagi ko ng bahagya yung bag nung babae. nagulat ako kasi biglang bumalikwas yung babae, masama tingin sa akin - sabay tingin sa bag nya. sa loob-loob ko, tadong babae to ah, muka ba akong magnanakaw? haha XD
