New Year’s Resolutions For Every Filipino

1. Huwag maging pikon.

2. Henceforth, all LOLCats are just cats with bad grammar. They lost their LOLs, and will not have any pie.

3. No politician can instantly save us from poverty. We’re voting for a president, not Jesus. At any rate, he’d be disqualified as a nuisance candidate. I will act accordingly.

4. I will not vote for Manny Villar.

5. I will not reply to criticism against my presidential candidate/matinee idol/anyone with “bias ka kasi! (you are a bias, that’s why!)” I will not resort to ad hominem attacks just to show I am ‘not a bias.’

6. I will keep in mind that the success of one Filipino is not the success of the nation.

7. On the other hand, the nation’s failure makes me a failure too.

8. Not all drinking sprees have to end in violence.

9. I will accept that wearing the map of the Philippines on my shirt doesn’t make me nationalistic. Knowing the map, maybe.

10. I will vote for Indolent Indio in the 2010 Blog Awards.

What are your New Year’s resolutions?

  1. Funny thing is, (from a grammar Nazi POV) when you say “bias ka kasi”, you’re describing a person as a bias in himself. While bias is a preference of a person, not the person itself. It could’ve been “May bias ka kasi” but with the advent of txtspk, who has the time to spell czeck and proofread grammer.

  3. what’s the tagalog word for bias anyway?

    @ #8. Agreed. Drinking sprees can also end in orgies. Let’s not let it go any further than that.
