01 Mar Ang Pangalang Paulit-ulit
JUAN SAYS: If there is one distinct characteristic of the Filipino culture, that would be, we all have a a close affinity to repeating the same words twice. It is as they say, to stress a point. Even when we speak or write in English, we fall for the same repetitive tendencies of saying “very very” to say what we mean to say. And today, we talk about names. We have a Vice President in waiting who has exactly that, a name that is repeated twice. Bakit ba hindi pwedeng “Bong Marcos” lang siya? Kailangan ba talagang “Bong Bong.” Parang Jon-jon, Tin-tin? Ulit-ulit? Unli-text?
JUAN SAYS: Pwede. Pwede.
JUAN SAYS: Ulit ulit nga diba? Bugbog. Bugbog.
JUAN SAYS: Tuhkah.
