This Is Too Much, Simply Too Much!

Enough is enough. This is simply too much. We have been brutally ostracized as a nation because of the crime of one demented police officer and the incompetence of the police assault team of Manila. We have offered apologies and have bowed down our heads. But the people of Hong Kong and China want more. They disparaged our President and our country as a whole and even insulted our people. This is just too much. Our leaders must stop acting as if we are a vassal of China. When Pinoys became victims of unwarranted acid attacks in Hong Kong did we protest? When tons and tons of illegal drugs are unloaded in our shores from China and when those who were arrested maintaining shabu laboratories came from China, did we protest? And when Chinese illegal poachers raided our Philippine seas taking with them endangered species and when they are peremptorily released by local authorities due to pressures from China, did we protests? When China unilaterally occupied part of The Spratly islands and made incursions as deep as Palawan whom PGMA almost gave to China and Vietnam (presumably for oil exploration) did we protest? When Chinese businessmen regularly engaged in smuggling of all sorts of goods to the detriment of our local industry, did we protest? Let us stop behaving like we are a slave to China and Hong Kong. We have given all apologies and ask for their forgiveness and that is enough. Let us not let them bash our country and our people to the ground.

oh, i thought i read somewhere that the wounds have started to heal re: our relations with them. brother mel, i've been debating whether or not i should write my thoughts about the quirino tragedy. but i just can't push myself to do it. this is a sad sad sad world. if i can still help it, i don't want to contribute further to the sad emotions going around.

tama..sapat na ang paghingi ng sorry para sa nangyari..hindi naman iyon kagustuhan talaga..maunawaan sana ng mga taga hong kong na sadyang may mga trahedya na hindi inaasahan ng mga kababayan ng isang bansa..

Hi Imelda,
At first I was really apologetic about what happened but when things got blown up out of proportions eh parang hindi na tama. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Oh my.. Im so clueless with the latest reports over there now. But its sad to know that after the incident, Phils is being lambasted by Chinese media after all the apologies. Hopefully, everything will lie low as it is really affecting the tourism in PI.

BTW, thanks Kuya for the dalaw, I have noted that you've already changed it. Thanks

it really is an unfortunate thing to happen and we are not trying to justify the shortcomings of the authorities who were supposed to be the ones to take care of it. but i think we already did what we were supposed to do to patch things up..

Hi Meretrisha,
As a Pinoy, I can't hekp but express my strong view on what's happening now. Yes, one demented Pinoy killed Hong Kong tourists and yes, our police authorities have been so incompetent in handling the issue but after all our leaders have issued apologies and have done so much to repair the damage, the Chinese still lambast us in the international scene even insulting our President. There is a time when we should say enough is enough. We should uphold the dignity and honor of our country. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Arvin,
It is not only Hong Kong who is reacting but China as well. They ordered our authorities to speed up the result of the police investigation and stopped our official delegation from proceeding to Hong Kong to officially apologize before an official report comes out. They insulted our President and the whole Filipino nation and are asking compensation for the victims. As I said, this is too much. Enough is enough. We should stand up and protect the dignity and honor of our country. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Umma,
My heart bleeds sa mga pagyurak na ginagawa nang mga taga Hong Kong sa Pilipinas at sa mga Pinoy. Minura nila ang ating Presidente at ininsulto ang ating bansa. Ang kasalanan nang isang tao ay hindi dapat ipataw sa buong bansa. At some point in time, we must learn to stand up and depend our honor and dignity as a nation. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Kimmy,
You are absolutely right. For the heinous crime of just one person, the Chinese want to lynch the entire Filipino nation. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Mama Ko said...

That is just so pathetic that one mistake of one stupid crazy Filipino the whole nation has to suffer. Well, it's time I guess that we Filipino had to work so hard and prove to them that we are not so dependent with the job they give. Thats the problems with other country they just use our resources and people and one single mistake parang mga hunghang na kaagad. Hope all the dispute will come to an end.

Hi Shy,
We are all hoping that this incident will pass from the scene so that we can all move on. Hindi naman dapat isisi sa buong bansa ang kasalanan nang iisang tao. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

SO MUCH AGREE to you...wala na ko masabi. It was an isolated case. Kaya nga nagcomment na rin si Jackie CHan about this.
That tragedy was indeed a wake up call for government. Sana meron naman mangyari maganda.

Thanks for this post po =) Itweet ko nga

Hi Bambie dear,
I hope this incident will not be repeated again since it has caused us so much pain and troubles already. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
