Pilipinas to Filipinas

The KOMISYON sa Wikang Filipino or KWF wants the name Pilipinas changed to Filipinas to promote the official and modern name of the country. The KWF suggests that the name ‘Pilipinas’ on letterheads, stamps, and notepads be replaced with ‘Filipinas.’

Eto ng tanong ko: Anong problema n’yo? Wala kayong magawa?

Virgilio Almario, KWF Chairman was also quoted to have said, “Unang dapat burahin ang ‘Philippines.’ Tatak ito ng patuloy na pag-iral sa ating utak ng pananakop ng mga Amerikano.” If we follow this ridiculous suggestion, the University of the Philippines will become University of Filipinas. How do we cheer then for the Fighting Maroons? UF Fight! Ang lavo!

Ang UAAP magiging UAAF
Malaking froblema!

Kahit itanong n’yo pa kay Tourism Secretary Mon Jimenez…
Ang “It’s more fun in Filipinas!” – hindi veventa!

Pati mga d’yaryo mag-aalsa:
Filipinas Daily Inquirer? Ano va?!
Eh ang Filipinas Star? Faano kikita?

Filipinas Stock Exchange?
Ano ‘yon? Pangalan ng casa?!

From PUP to PUF
Ayaw ng mga aktibista.

Philippine Normal University
Filipinas Normal University na.

Pati mga kadete, magwawala
Kapag naging Fee-M-A ang school nila.

Filipinas National Police?! Waley!
Armed Forces of Filipinas?! Kalurkey!

Narinig n’yo na ba ang balita?
May bagong bagyo raw na pumasok sa Filipinas Area of Responsbility.
Papunta na nga raw ito sa West Filipinas Sea.

Parang may mali!

Sandali.
Baka naman si PNoy, tawagin na ring F-Noy.
F-Noy!
F-Noy!
Hindi magandang ulit-ulitin
Parang tunog bastusin.

Filipinas Airlines… magagalit si Lucio Tan.
Filipinas Coast Guard: ‘di type ng fishermen.

Ang PAGASA, magiging FAGASA?
Baka maakusahan pa ng homophobia!

‘Buti na lang at ‘di Pilipinas ang P sa Pag-IBIG Fund
Kung naging Fag-IBIG ang drama
Mabubuwisit ang mga moralista!

Speaking of moralista…
Ang Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines
Magiging Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Filipinas na!
Mai-imbyerna sina Father at sasabihin “Over!”
Baka muling pag-initan ang “My Husvand’s Lober.”

Kaya sa Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino: Naku po… good luck!
Itong suggestion n’yo, isang malaking: watdapak!

I read this post from a Facebook friend. The lack of basis (from both my friend and his friends who made comments) to ridicule the changing of Pilipinas to Filipinas was what struck me. This is how we reason out, Filipinos. 😦

I hope to see more noteworthy comments after my careful post:

Filipinas
