Tsip Chao is a real cheappie

An article written by HK columnist Tsip Chao has resulted to a public outrage of many Filipinos across the globe. The manner that Tsip Chao asserts that Filipino slaves should not flex their muscles to its Chinese masters is a real big BULLSHIT. The issue of sovereign over the Spratly's Island should not result in race bashing. Spare the hardworking Filipinos in Hongkong to all of this commotions. 

Tsip Chao may be a "nationalistic" veteran broadcaster but his satire is neither patriotic in nature nor funny. It's a clear insult. All races have imperfections including the Chinese. Don't wait for some other Pinoy broadcasters to do the same bashing because probably, they never will. It's all about respect.

There is a cross-cultural relationship between Pinoys and Chinese. Early Chinese migrants built business and ventures in the Philippines. Pinoys, on the other hand, are important component of China's workforce especially in Hong Kong and Macau. People like Tsip Chao cannot break this century-old friendship and working relationship. If I am his maid, I will resigned under his employment. My nationalistic pride outweighs the value of his HK$3,600 monthly salary.

Philippines is not perfect and it will never be. But this is my country and this is one of the few things that I can really call as my own. Thanks for the bashing for it just strengthens my love for the Philippines. 

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
