Filipinos are the G.O.A.T.

Imelda Marcos: The First True Filipina Sneaker Freak.

Imelda Marcos: The First and Greatest Filipina Sneaker Freak.

Filipinos are the GREATEST OF ALL TIME. They excel at everything they do. I hate to generalize, but after growing up in a Catholic high school with 20% Filipinos, and going through the last year of Filipino priding with Manny Pacquiao, I learned from all my friends that Filipinos are better than you and me and your Chinese mom. They excel at everything, and these are the greatest Filipinos in their respective fields:

Boxing: Manny Pacquiao. 

Music: 1/6 of Black Eyed Peas, 1/2 of Amerie Cassie, 1/2 of N.E.R.D., Lea Salonga, 1/2 of Prince, Joe Bataan, 1/2 of Blue Scholars, 1/6 of The Beastie Boys, and DJ Q-Bert

News: Michelle Malkin

Literture: Carlos Buloson

Dance: Cheryl BurkeCris Judd, 4/7 of Jabbawockeez, 3/6 of Super Cr3w, and 0/6 of Kaba Modern.   

Sports: 1/2 of Erik Spoelstra, Benny Agbayani, 1/2 of Tim Lincecum

Acting: Tia Carrere, Jennie Kwan, Ernie Reyes, Jr., 1/2 of Lou Diamond Philips, Nia Peeples, 1/2 of Rob Schneider, 1/4 of Tamlyn Tomita, 1/2 of Phoebe Cates, Paolo Montalban,  and Rufio

So there goes. Feel free to email me with more Famous Filipinos. I will gladly add to this list which will surely grow as more and more Vanessa Hudgens enter this world.

  4. Yo! Thanks for the list. I got Blue Scholars on there! My PNW blogging colleague would be pissed if I missed them. But props on the Lloyd LaCuesta drop. He’s the most badass field reporter. Him and his parka have been through the worst storms in the Bay, the most crazy shootings in the east bay, and I’ve seen his ass wading through the water after a flood near the delta. he’s crazy nuts.


  5. Ahmm Vietnamese are not the Goats.. they are the GOOKS :)..

    ok add Ninoy Aquino to that list please… and Jose Rizal.

    And Quentin Tarantino – well he’s not Filipino, but he’s loving our barong tagalog 🙂 and our classic films too.


  6. uhmmm one question though.. why is Imelda there? Oh.. ok.. well the only good thing that she did for the Philippines is carry our national costume with pride.


  7. Don’t forget Arnel Pineda. He’s the lead singer for Journey now after being discovered by Neal Schon on YouTube. It’s his second year touring and he’s scheduled to be on Oprah on October 2nd.
