    Eto ang pinay! hahaha! hindi yung isang nasa ibang feed, pinainit ang ulo ng tambay na ito. Matuto nga tayong kilalanin ang lahi natin. Kaya ang mga kababayan natin sa ibang bansa madaling nawawalan ng loyalty sa bansa natin kasi madali tayong maniwala sa mga sabi sabi, hindi tayo sanay mag isip critically.

    This is unlike Jessica Sanchez, this is PINAY. No offense meant to those who are idolizing and thinking uncritically about the AI 11. This is a pinay with talent and she gets my admiration.

    She drummed to a piece that was like a softer Miles Davis tune (to my untrained ear, anyway), meaning it wasn't shabby.She's very good.
