Filipino Soldier Experience Discrimination in his own Country

Boracay Island, Philippines. It's already 2016 yet discrimination still exists not only in western world, but also in developing country like the Philippines. And the victim is not an ordinary citizen, but a soldier who's willing to depend and die for his own country.

A Filipino soldier known as Lieutenant Ryan Layug posted on his Facebook page that a supervisor of the Discover Boracay Hotel in Kalibo International Airport denied him from checking in and avail the VIP Lounge.

Below is the original text of Lt. Layug posted on social media.

Calling All Filipinos and the Government. At 10pm of January 1, 2016 I was refused to check-in and avail the VIP Lounge at the Discover Boracay building in Kalibo International Airport that cost Php300 saying they only accept South Koreans. I am to avail of the service because my flight is at 5am going to Cebu.

In photos below, I approached the lady Filipina Staff at the cashier where inquiries and payment are made. 

Me: Ms I'd like to use the VIP Lounge. 

Lady Staff: Naku sir sa ngayon sa mga Koreans lang po nila inooffer ang lounge. 

Me: Are you serious? Bakit sa kanila lang? 

Lady Staff: Korean po kasi ang may ari sir. 

Me: First time ko yata makaranas ng discrimination sa sarili kong bansa at sinasabi mo yan sa kapwa mo Pilipino. 

Lady Staff: Sir sandali po magtanong muna ako (she looked for her supervisor then dumating sa counter ang koreano) 

Lady Staff: Sir a Filipino would like to check-in. 

Korean Supervisor: No Filipino! No Filipino!

Arranged Marriage in the Philippines - Maranao Tribe Tradition

In the Philippines, especially in some part of Mindanao, arranged marriage is acceptable and still practice by few tribes as part of their tradition, and the Maranao tribe is one of them.


In Maranao tradition, aspiring young grooms and brides entered into marriage that set-up by their parents rather than each other. A young girl and boy will have a marital union in which both are selected and arranged by their parents, sometimes without their knowledge.




However, the newly married young couple will not live in the same roof, but instead remain under the care and supervision of their respective parents until they are both matured enough and ready to live as husband and wife. Unlike the arranged marriage in other countries like Yemen, Afghanistan and other African region, where old men married young girls and living with them even if they are still kids and not yet in their puberty period.

A netizen named Nikki Gonzales posted a complaint on her social media account expressing what she felt about an arrogant priest who doesn't perform a sacred ritual for the dead as long as all the people will not kneel down, including a disabled and a senior citizen.
I am a Bosconian and a Paulinian. Ever since, I always look up to priests. I respect them and some of them are even close to my heart. But there's this one priest in Bacong who I really want the church to remove or eliminate. I don't want to see him celebrate one more mass. Because he is a disgrace, a shame and a scandal to the Catholic church. That's why other religions will mock the catholic church because of these doings! Here's what happened...

Earlier this afternoon, my family and I went to Bacong to attend a burial mass and of course, a burial. The diseased is my late lolo (a Vindiola, on my father's side). Anyway, not all of us in our family is Catholic that's why they were just seated a…
