The Pinoy Penchant for Critiquing Physical Flaws

One other observation I have about us Pinoys (hindi lahat, but I think it is a prevailing social tic) is we almost always zero in on the physical. We grow up hearing people criticize the way we look--how your cheeks are so plump, how our skin is too dark and so we should stay out …

Nagging Friend
