Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

'Stories for a Better Normal' series to feature culinary heritage mapping

CALOOCAN CITY, July 23 (PIA) -- Culinary heritage experts and advocates will highlight the continuing efforts to document and map out local Filipino food to revitalize culinary heritage in the Philippines to be featured on 10th episode of “Stories for a Better Normal: Pandemic and Climate Change Pathways.” 

The episode, titled "Culinary Heritage (Part 2)" will air today at 10:00 a.m., via Facebook at and, to be hosted by House Deputy Speaker and Antique Representative Loren Legarda.

Resource speakers include Chef Gaita Fores, 2016 Asia’s Best Female Chef and owner of several restaurants, including Cibo, Lusso, and Grace Park; food writer Ige Ramos; Rectito Melquiades, Coordinator of the Guiuan Recovery and Sustainable Group for Resilience in Eastern Samar; and Gatchi Gatchalian, restaurateur and President of the Davao Tourism Association.

Arvin Villalon, National Cultural Mapping Facilitator from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), will be a reactor for this episode.

In previous episodes, the online series tackled topics such as food gardening, saving seeds, permaculture, good nutrition and diet, sustainable urban mobility, and culinary heritage preservation, which were all framed in the context of promoting sustainable and healthy lives, while helping families and communities address the climate crisis.

The first part of the culinary heritage episode which aired last July 16 underscored the importance of preserving local food and culinary heritage through adaptive and sustainable diets. It also tackled the importance of celebrating the local food and culinary heritage of Filipinos and recognizing these as a form of art. It also called for the development of more sustainable and resilient food systems for healthier diets and improved nutrition of all Filipinos.

In this upcoming episode, Legarda will deepen the discussion on regional foods and cuisines, as well as underscore how the preservation of local food and culinary heritage promotes agrobiodiversity, an important adaptation strategy in reducing the impact of climate change on food security.

As an online discussion to promote health, environmental consciousness, and climate-adaptive practices, Stories for a Better Normal aims to change the mindset of individuals, families, and communities by demonstrating ways in which a “better normal” can be realized.

This online discussion is organized in partnership between the Office of Deputy Speaker Legarda and the Climate Change Commission, with support from the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities, The Climate Reality Project-Philippines, Mother Earth Foundation and Slow Food Network. (PIA NCR)

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.
