A Filipino woman once told me, in city areas in her country, those who cannot speak in English do not have brains, or empty.. there’s nothing inside his/her head. Because of this, everyone in Philippines try to speak in English instead of Tagalog.
I have to attend English classes back in Malaysia because I don’t want Filipino to laugh at me coz I’m a man with no brain. Or in Malay, we can say “lelaki otak udang”. Soo bad..
