http://youtube.com/watch?v=KPg5IH4O7lM The sight of Pagpag makes me feel very sad that this happens to our country and the people seem to be enjoying and accepting.Why? And "pagpags" are for the pigs and the corrupt trapos and not for humans.Let's move and do something and stay not just as watchers and enjoying the comforts of our homes. This is so heartbreaking. We can't leave that to happen forever. Can WE? http://youtube.com/watch?v=KPg5IH4O7lM

It's pretty depressing. They even have the guts to increase the salary of the president. But if you ask me, yeah I'll eat pagpag just to survive. It's not healthy though but it will keep my stomach warm.

Before they would increase the salary of the president, i would really love to see the first family and the cronies to watch the video and see their reaction, or even just to have a taste of the that "adobong pagpag" But i guess this won't make any effect on them. Don't you?

They're too callous to feel any pity for the poor.

I would rather eat fishballs than pagpag. You may never know what disease may strike at you by eating stuff like this. The first person who ate the dish may have hiv aids or other contagious disease.

of course if we can afford, we will think of that. but for the less fortunate ones, they wont mind it as long as their stomach will not be empty

hi joe! i was able to watch part of this from GMA. Yes, we do not like eating this kind of things, but for the depressed ones, they have no choice. they need to survive and the only way to survive is to eat anything that they can afford for a small cost or even no cost at all. they dont want to get hungry. if only the government will help them.

yes...government can extend a much help if only they stop concerning amassing the ill fortune. Fortune that is supposed to be for the poor people. This is so sad indeed.

Admittedly, I am not a stranger to the term because just like you, I am also from the Philippines, but thankfully I haven't experienced eating 'pagpag'. I also don't wish to experience this, either by myself or by my loved ones. It really is so disheartening to see our fellowmen experiencing so much poverty. And it is a fact that corruption in the government is making things from worse to worst. I think they are not concerned because they are absolutely not affected by this sight. Unfortunately, even if I do want to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters; I couldn't possibly do this because my spouse and I are also facing a financial crisis at the moment. In fact, we are finding it difficult to make ends meet. We both have separate jobs but almost everything goes to our meals, transportation fares, utility bills, house rent, and loan amortizations with various individuals and organizations. We do have one daughter for a child and I feel sad that we have to leave her with my parents in the province because we couldn't afford to hire the services of a nanny. Hopefully, we'll be able to pay-off every loan until the end of this year and by this time or earlier, we'll be able to spend more time together with our only child. So, I have to say that I could only offer prayers for people who eat 'pagpag'.
