West Side


It's true. We Filipinos love to stare a lot. We're not only prone to staring at Americans and Europeans but also at fellow Pinoys who deviate from the norm. It's a constant source of irritation and annoyance that more often than not leads to violent fights. Can any fellow Pinoy out there volunteer a guess why we're prone to doing it? Anyway, a couple of lines in this strip were inspired by one of my top favorite movies of all time. I'm giving a no-prize to the first person who gets it.

* This is a bonus strip.

We actually think staring is not offensive in our culture. In western societies, it seems intrusive - but in a post feudal island state like ours, where personal space isn't valued (i.e three families living in one Nipa shanty), staring is as normal as say pointing to things with your mouth.
