Headline Translation (on the RED box):
WATER AT THE MARIKINA RIVER, IT’S EVEN FAR AWAY FROM THE MARIKINA RIVER
It’s bad enough that I no longer live in the Philippines, but even the locals are not even sure where on earth Marikina River is located….
In fairness, this was in Filipino/Tagalog. I would’ve been more furious if this was in English.1
On the sidenote...
- considering with that whole controversy in the Philippines last month about some journalist dude who declared that “English is for the educated” while “Filipino/Tagalog is the language of the streets; the language that people use to talk to their domestic helpers, etc.” [↩]
