Marian Rivera's showbiz palengkera persona endears her to C-D fans #DongYanWedding

Filipinos don't know the meaning of "thoughtless extravagance" or ostentatious spending. This is a symptom of that very Filipino fiesta mentality. To the Filipino mind it is ok to spend even if it means ruining your bank account in order to please your friends. That's what it seems DongYan were doing – pleasing their fans showing them a fairytale wedding before their very eyes. Furthermore, DongYan fans/haters would note that in spite of Marian's Madrilena origins, she is quite the 'Palengkera' and 'Bobita' in speech which allows her to connect and endear herself to the masses who are fooled into thinking that she had humble origins – a real life Cinderella. So they welcome the fairytale wedding and the kilig high that it gives them.

Ahh, kilig. That infamous Taga-ilog word – a word with no known equivalent in other Philippine languages, nor in English or tongue from other more 'intellectual' languages. It describes an emotional high related to seeing two people in love or being lovey-dovey. In the developed world, the proper reaction of seeing people all lovey-dovey would be either to 1. be happy for them or 2. be jealous of them. Going all gaga like high school gals over something like this just describes the mental state of their fandom – high school, not even past puberty (no matter that a lot of them probably got several kids of their own and stuck in a live-in relationship with no hope of ever getting the same kind of fairytale wedding DongYan got).

  5. I would never call someone a Palengkera out out defending herself from someone who disrespects her. How would you address an individual who turned wild in a bar and slapped an individual out of being drunk? Which one is palengkera? Bobita, someone's intelligence is not measured by fluency in english language. If people view intelligence as being eloquent and fluent in english language, then damn, that person is indeed BOBO or BOBITA.

  9. Colonial mentality yan. Kasi ang babae Peninsulares. Ipinanganak sa Espnaya, mestiza at puting puti pero kung magsalita parang ipinanganak sa palengke . Kaya nagustuhan ng masa. Feeling nila pareho nila pero mas mestiza nga lang. Yan ang colonial na mentalidad.

  10. kung tingnan at obserbahan tayo ng iba ta-o , siguro ang tingin nila natin medyo delayed ang pagutak. paano naging ganito and napakaraming ta-o sa Pilipinas? We really look like there is something wrong with us mentally.

  11. If marian is morena and not white -skinned, if she was not born in Madrid, will the masses love and idolize her just for her acting chops, her character and charisma? I doubt it.

  12. You are absolutely right. If she is dark skinned i dont think the masses will have a soft spot for her. i personally dont think she is beautiful at all. If she is here in america, no one in their right mind would hire that kind of look as a model. However, in the Philippines she is considered pretty because she is white- skinned despite her bad bone face structure. Excessively long and angled nose, huge eyebags, chubby face. The masses are in love with her because she behaves like she is uneduacted. So, they can relate to her.
