Freedom of speech for Carlos Celdran

Last week Carlos Celdran was forced to stop his performance of Livin’ la vida Imelda in Dubai in the middle of the run. The police started asking him what did he mean when he was talking about the Ghadafi – Imelda Marcos interview.

What’s wrong with this Arab people?

We’re in 2012. It’s time to open our minds and let people comment whatever they want to. It’s called freedom of speech sirs.

Some countries still don’t have it like China or Arab countries. In China they don’t even have Facebook.

Well. Is it better or worse. I never know. China doesn’t have much freedom, but is very secure to walk around…

The Philippines has kindda more freedom, but no security in the streets…

Let’s think of it in a small environment. Let’s think it a house or a family instead of a country.

Imagine someone enters your house and they say your mother is a whore. What would your reaction be? Would you punch that person? Would you throw him out of your place? Would you laugh at it?

Actually you can chose from a big sort of reactions, but what would I do?…


Mmmmm. I would expulse that person out of my house. I would force him to leave for being unrespectful.

Wow, I would kind of react the same as those authoritative countries, mmmm, interesting.

So maybe i cannot blame them even if I want freedom of speech… interesting.

My conclusion is: If you go to your neighbor’s place, respect his rules.

Of course, as this blog says in it’s header. I can always change my opinions anytime. TY 🙂

The poor will eat the priests. Don’t feed beggars.

As a friend of mine just said. They wont approve the RH bill until the poor people don’t start eating priests.

We are far too many people living in Manila these days. Our population has burst up in such a speed we cannot contain it anymore.

Streets full of rubbish and squatters. Hold ups, taxi scams, robbery and rape all over.

I bought my own car and spend so much in my transportation everyday because I cannot commute. It’s too dangerous, specially if you are white. Most people think I’m so rich because I’m white.

Well thanks to that I have to spend a lot in transport I really have to check on what jobs to accept because if it’s too far and not well payed I simply don’t get it coz I’ll lose money in due to transportation.

I have friends who have kids been still teenagers and they can’t take care of them. They can’t even marry if they even wanted to, because they cannot afford living out of their parent’s place. How can they raise a child.

Kids begging everyday in the traffic. Don’t those kids go to school? No they don’t. They prefer to beg to get some money. Maybe their parents force them to beg. Later their parents will force them to work and be prostitutes too in the future, or even now.

Every time you give money to a kid in the streets you are collaborating and promoting that kind of life. If you give them money they wont go to school anymore because it’s great to earn money by begging in the streets. They will never learn anything but to beg. You are promoting beggars. And then you’ll protest because you don’t want to see that.

Gunfire and granade robbery in Robinson Galleria in Ortigas, Manila, Philippines.

This morning they were shooting in Robinson’s Galleria in Ortigas, by ADB Avenue. They were trying to commit a robbery.

4 people in yellow green uniforms started shooting at the guards and back. And even a grenade exploded inside. All this was inside the mall, by the food court, where more people are.

I go to that mall! My cute cousin and friends eat there everyday! That’s beside the Repertory Philippines’ office!

How can we feel secure in this city with thing like this happen?

The security in every mall look inside our bags, touch us and even scan us with their machines. But they didn’t find about four people who entered fully armed with guns and grenades. OMG.

I’m sure in the next few days it’s gonna be extra safe to enter any mall because security will be doubled, but after a while it will be normal again.

I’m sure Robinson’s will lose a lot of clients because of this. I’m sure even other malls will see it drop a little in the next days, but will go up soon again.

It’s more fun in The Philippines, I agree. But the campaign of the government should be towards the security first. Coz I spoke with many foreigners about tourism here and the main thing preventing them is the security in the streets.

I told them it’s ok inside the malls…
