Sylvia Ratonel - a disappointment to Filipinos?

Maraming salamat at Happy New Year kay Mike De Dios na nagpadala ng news na fresh from Singapore. Ito ang kuwento ni Mike, ang aking bubwit sa Singapore:

“Hello Manay Lolit. Ibalita ko lang sa’yo na noong Dec 27 ginanap dito sa Singapore ang finals ng Singapore Idol (between Malaysian-Singaporean guy at isang half-Pinay na di sanay mag-Tagalog).

Isa sa mga guest performer si Charice, and two of the past Singapore Idol na ‘yung isa eh the first Asian Idol.

Literally, nilamon ni Charice ng buong- buo ang lahat nang nag-perform noong gabing ‘yon. What made us all proud (Pinoys here in SG) ay nang sabihin niya na “I am Charice and I’m from the Philippines.”

One of the finalist (Sylvia Ratonel), has Filipino blood, pero ang nakaka-disappoint sa kanya, hindi siya sanay magsalita ng Tagalog and when asked in an interview kung bakit hindi Tagalog ang kakantahin niya during the Asian Song week competition, she answered “ Yes, I have Filipino blood, but I don’t know that language”.

That incident caused her the Singapore Idol title, I think, hindi niya nakuha ang support ng Pinoy community here in Singapore. Alam mo naman ang mga Pinoy, basta para sa karangalan ng bansa, kahit maubos ang load, boboto at boboto...”

well, we cannot blame solely sylvia for that... marami naman sa ibang dako ng mundo ang hindi sinanay ang mga anak mag tagalog... for unknown reason... but we have to commend her for recognizing that she has a filipino blood.

dominant ang mga malaysian sa singapore... in fact, i was there in the stadium watching the grand finals of singapore idols. puro malaysian... at saan dako ng singapore puro malay... ang mga judges boto kay sylvia. marami rin singaporeans ang boto kay sylvia kaso puro babae ang voters and they go with a male idol... hehe.. as usual... kikilig ang mga babae sa lalake...

anyway, sana meron break si sylvia dito sa pinas.. magaling sya kumanta... pabayaan na ang nanalo ng singapore idol 2009.. para syang lata kumanta. trying hard.

nung ma announce ang winner, hindi mo makikita ang saya sa mga judges coz they vote for sylvia.
