Superficial

If you grew up hearing people criticize the way you look, pagtanda mo ganyan ka na din–yung physical imperfections ng iba ang lagi mo napapansin.

Typical Pinoy mindset na nakakalungkot. Yung tipong mula ulo hanggang paa kung maka kilatis.

Mas malakas pa loob ko mag shorts at bikini dito kesa sa Pinas or sa Pinoy gatherings. I agree, this is more on me than on the other people, but a lot of Filipinas will get me on this.

Kasi tayo yata ang lahi ng mga pinaka malakas at masakit mamintas sa kapwa.

Proof yung fact na punch line lagi sa jokes ng mga komedyante (either stand up or sa slapstick movies or sitcom) is something about a physical flaw ng isang tao-babalu, pag dark-skinned low hanging fruit yan matic na kasali sa joke yan di mawawala, pag pango, crooked teeth, pag overweight, pag duling, pandak… tsk!

It seems we don’t find it funny unless someone is getting made fun of because of how they look. Parang ang sama lang.
