    2. 5:55 Halos lahat naman ng opinion may point depende sa kung anong panig mo. Pero di yun excuse para maging discriminatory ot racist

    3. I ACTUALLY DIG IT WHEN PEOPLE POST RACIST/HOMOPHOBIC/INSENSITIVE POSTS BECAUSE THEY REVEAL THEIR TRUE COLORS. AT LEAST I KNOW I SHOULD AVOID OR DON'T SUPPORT THEM.

  2. It's Lunar New Year, nakasanayan na lang na tawaging CNY dahil sila ang mas nagoobserve nito

  3. Yung kabastusan na ganyan ang nakakabuwisit. Mga matataas ang tungkulin pero mga bastos.
    Kung may anak man yang taong yan, DAPAT LANG na mahiya mga anak niya sa racist nilang magulang.

    2. Really? It only shows her ignorance! Lunar New Year is celebrated by a lot of cultures not just Chinese!

      Delete
    3. So para mo ba ring sinabi, ang mga Muslim at Iglesia ni Cristo followers, di dapat magbakasyon pag Pasko at Good Friday? Pwede bang konting paggalang sa paniniwala ng ibang tao?

    4. Pano naging dean yan? Pwede ba sa faculty of racism hahjaja

    5. Filipinos are a bunch of copycats. We now celebrate Thanksgiving . (But why? I don't remember our ancestors landing on Plymouth Rock nor do we have a Plymouth Rock and the turkey was never popular in the Philippines. Inaadobo nila instead of baking or roasting it for 4-5 hours), Chinese New Year (now we have two, January 1 and the CNY which falls on a date where the Lunar new year falls and it changes every year , Halloween which we never celebrated before. We have UNDAS, remember folks?, Mother and Father's Day. Never did we have a special designated day to honor our parents. Well at least I'm glad we do have one now. Copycats, that's all that we are.

      Delete
    6. Ang sinabi nman nya ay personal nyang opinyon. Tama nman sya. Ngayon sa mga gusto mkicelebrate sa CNY eh di mgcelebrate kayo. Nirerespeto nmin yon. Para sa mga ayaw lalo na di nman sila Chinese eh di respeto nyo din.

      Delete
    7. @9:21 very very wrong ang logic mo ate. pagnagbakasyon ka na ba ng holiday, that means you are celebrating kung ano yung reason ng holiday.

    8. This statement us racist, this Dean should publicly apologize.

      Delete
    9. Isn't it because last year kaya naman talaga kumalat ang covid is because of the migration of people right after the lunar year celebrations in China? Marami kasing umuwi then bumalik sa foreign countries while only a few countries imposed a travel ban. Baka yon ibig sabihin nya--connected sa lunar year celebrations, not because of China.

      Delete
  5. Agree with her comment. Hindi naman tayo Chinese para mag celebrate ng Chinese New Year.

    1. This was what I said to my son when he told me his friend asked him why we don't celebrate CNY.

    2. Pero meron din akong mga Pinoy friends na nagcecelebrate ng CNY, ok lang makisaya, good luck and good vibes, hwag ng nega kung di kayo magcecelebrate. Co-exist harmoniously.

    3. Since this is your take, hndi ka nagholiday off?! supposedly you went to work without extra pay - did you 1:47 & 2:27?

    4. Kayo hindi, pero nakikibakasyon kayo.

      Delete
    5. Then let us not celebrate too the Muslim holidays like the Ramadan?

    6. But the fact that she associates CNY for the spread of the virus is so racist. Condoning her statement makes you a racist as well

    7. Lunar New Year po yan! Lunar po, Lunar!

    8. Wla pong special holiday s amin pinagtatrabahuhan ang Lunar New year, 9:15. Also wla din po sya double pay or anything. So, wag magmarunong.

      Delete
    9. 9:15 ang layo ng argument mo. Sinasabi ko lang na hindi kami nag-celebrate kasi di naman kami Chinese, may masama ba dun? Sinabi ko ba na wag mag-celebrate o mag-holiday ang mga tao? 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

    10. 1:47 baka mas lalo magtaka ka pag nasa ibang bansa ka the likes of SG, nag cecelabrate ng Deepavali/Diwali (Hindu, Jains, sikhs), CNY, Ramadan, Vesak(buddha day), Christmas, etc.

      Respeto sa celebration ng isang community/groups/religion sa isang bansa.

    1. Pakana na naman yan ng media para ikondisyon ang isip ng mga Pinoy. Ang ABS nga meron pang regular na Feng Shui expert kuno na si Hanz Cua na laging guest sa talk shows nila lalo na pag Chinese New Year. Ang hula ni Hanz Cua nung pagpasok ng 2020 magiging the best raw ang taong 2020 ayun mali ang hula nya kasi may pandemia palang mangyayari.

    7. Not only CNY dear, may mga pa Holloween pa nga.

    8. There are Chinese Filiponos who celebrate the Lunar New Year. Same way we celebrate the start and end of Ramadan even though not all of us are Muslims. It's respecting the diversity of beliefs in the country

      Delete
    9. 1:48 same reason why the last day of ramadan is a holiday kahit sa mga hindi Muslim. Respeto sa kapwa Pinoy yan na nagccelebrate ng mga bagay na mahalaga sa kanila.

      Delete
    10. Oh edi wag ka mag-holiday. Pinipilit ka ba? Lol.

    11. Kay 1:48 talaga yong comment - baka mas lalo magtaka ka pag nasa ibang bansa ka the likes of SG, nag cecelabrate ng Deepavali/Diwali (Hindu, Jains, sikhs), CNY, Ramadan, Vesak(buddha day), Christmas, etc.

    5. Personal comment man un, the more reason she needs to be responsible. And when did the chinese new yr become synonymous with covid. Susko dean pa man din

      Delete
    6. Sure 2:27, but there are things/opinions you keep to yourself. You don't need to publicly announce all your opinion, esp when you're educated enough to know it is borderline insensitive.

    1. The dean is just stating facts. She's not Chinese so she doesn't celebrate Chinese NY and that Covid 19 came from China. All facts.

    2. She is entitled to her own opinion. I don't see anything derogative in what she said.

    3. For what, for being right. Kaloka ka.

      Delete
    4. For being Racist. Chinese Filipinos are also
      Filipinos. They have been part of the country since kupong kupong even before the Spaniards came. They have the right to celebrate such holiday and we as their kababayan can respect that just like how we should also respect the Filipino Muslim. By history, Muslim religion in the Philippines was practiced even before the Spaniards brought Catholicism in the country. That’s why we had Sultans before. No one is forcing other Filipinos to celebrate it but if you do not respect it like being quiet about it, then you are crossing a line.

    1. I dont see anything wrong about it. Ikaw pag tinanong ka, nagcecelebrate ka ba ng cny? Pag sinabi mo na hindi, may mali ba dun?
      Saying you’re a filipino not celebrating chinese new year is a fact.

      Kapag tinanong mo ang inc kung nagcecelebrate sila ng pasko, pag sumagot sila na hindi ksi inc sila nagagalit ka ba? Instead you respect her belief. Why cant you do the same.

      On relating cny sa spread of coronavirus, hindi ba totoo naman? We used to call it wuhan virus, ngayon naman ung galing sa UK, UK variant, nagagalit ba ang taga-UK?

    2. 2:36 It’s comparing the celebration that most asian countries celebrate to a virus that’s problematic and if you don’t see that then RACIST.

    3. If, A BIG IF, she have posted her statement with ONLY the first sentence. Ok na sana eh, kaso dinagdagan pa.

      Delete
    4. Right for her personal post. But she is in the position na may mga filchi na students sa kanya. Can she be at least sensitive enough to think of that? Do you really need to tell everyone how you relate corona virus with cny. Kagalang galang iyong position nya, phd pa, ganyan magpost?

      Delete
    5. If ayaw niyang magcelebrate ng CNY, she should've just kept it to herself. It's not a reason for her to be a racist. She knows na mataas posisyon niya but she did it anyway. Lol

      Delete
  13. Totoo naman, no need to observe CNY kung hindi naman Chinese.

    Tayo kasing mga Pinoy, we’re trying to hard to be hard. Lahat na lang ginaya, celebrating events na hindi kasama sa culture natin.

  14. Di po ata nagets kung ano pinaghihimutok ng mga naoffend..Its not the Chinese NeW Year okay kung opinion nya yan..ang mas pangit pakinggan from an EDUCATOR and DEAN to say the least pa e inassociate pa nya yung COVID sa celebration. Totoo man yan its not appropriate and its racist to say lalo na coming from someone na dapat at this times na puro hatred na e sya pa pasimuno. Hilig natin makiepal sa mga problema ng ibang bansa maki BLACKLIVES MATTER pa tayo e mas masahol pa tayo. Sarili nating guro unang nagsasalita ng ganyan e wag po din tayo maoffend pagsinabi ng ibang bansa na pagPinoy katulong agad ang connotation.yon lang po.

  15. Everything the dean said is the truth!

  16. what a racisf comment. E kung gahyan ang sabihin ng mga amerikano about a filipino holiday in the u.s???? people say na racist ang mga puti e ganyan dn naman pala kayo sa ibang lahi

    ReplyDelete
  17. Don't see anything racist or wrong with this. Ayaw niya mag celebrate ng CNY dahil it reminds her of covid which is widely accepted came from Wuhan. Wala naman siyang racist or derogatory remark against sa mga chinese.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Lahat tayo entitled sa sarili nating opinion. Wala naman syang sinabing gawin nyo rin o paniwalaan nyo rin yung paniniwala nya. Ang problema sa society ngayon lahat pinupuna at lahat ini-exaggerate. Gusto nya pa yatang matanggalan ng work. Huwag naman ganun. Kung hindi nya feel magcelebrate ng Chinese New Year at yon ang gusto nyang iparating, just respect it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. It's lunar new year and it's called respect for your brethren's belief because no man is an island.para syang hindi nag aral. At walang scientific proof na totoong galing ng china ang corona virus.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am on the dean's side. It was the celebration that somehow allowed the spread of the virus last year. Brave of her.

  21. Tama naman sinabi nya.

  22. I agree with the Dean.

  23. Well, it’s true. Why are we obliged to celebrate something foreign to us in our own land. Kaloka diba.

  24. Oh well, I’m half-chinese but I don’t really celebrate Chinese New Year. New Year for me was December 31. I don’t really understand the Lunar new year.

  25. Di lang naman yun pag celebrate ng new yr issue nya, pati covid19 ,yun ang mali

    ReplyDelete
  26. This comment section just shows how ignorant people are to think there is nothing wrong with what the Dean said. Don't celebrate the event if you don't want to but don't judge who wants to celebrate it. Just keep dumb opinions to yourself. Kahiya

  27. Bigot and racist. And the way she speaks she seems like an anti vaxxer and flat earther hindi bagay maging dean sa bachelor of science course dapat sibakin na yan.

  33. her wall, her rule! anybody may call her out but still its her opinion. so, let her be!

    ReplyDelete
  34. First instinct is to call racism. Yes, we shouldn't blame chinese people HERE for the spread of coronavirus. But it DID come from China. They eventually had it controlled after it spread to the world, including the Philippines.

    Next, yes, why are Filipinos who aren't Chinese celebrating Chinese New Year? Are you practicing following the Eastern Zodiac? No? Then why? Do you just enjoy wearing red and eating tikoy? It's cultural appropriation.

    She voiced her opinions, and they are not harmful. You want to call her out but not the Christians in this country who promote hate towards muslims or lgbt?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Daming hirit sa mga chinese pero suot naman ng red sa birthday at sinusunod mga fengshui. Nagaabang pa ng red envelope. Geeeez.

    ReplyDelete
  36. As a Dean, and for being professional, opinions like this should be just kept to yourself. You don't have to air it to the public. Calling all the priests of UST. You might need to do something with this Dean. I thought you are teaching well your students the right conduct and code of ethics.

  41. Nobody cares if you celebrate CNY or not. Ang nakakapagtaka is the fact that you're a DEAN sa isang kilalang university dito tapos proud racist ka on social media. If ever you make a public apology after you go viral for your "lack of better judgement", pakisundan mo na din ng resignation at baka matuwa pa sayo ang FilChi community.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Sino bang pumipilit sa kanyang magcelebrate ng Chinese New Year? Duh!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I agree with Dean.

    ReplyDelete
  44. As a dean she should know better. It’s okay if she does not celebrate it, I’m sure no one is forcing her. Busy just be respectful. It is obvious her post is coming from hate, hatred toward the Chinese. But she should understand that Chinese/Han Chinese is a big race, you’ll find them in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, USA and all around the world, not just in China or Taiwan. There’s a huge population of Chinese Filipinos too, the oldest Chinatown is in the Philippines. It’s just simple, respect other culture, Chinese Filipinos people have been in the Philippines since it was founded. Some of our cultures from food and traditions were inspired from them hundreds of years ago. Just like how at the present time, many Filipinos are trying to adapt American or Korean culture but you don’t see people complaining. The deans and others here agreeing are just plain racist.

  48. Oh wow. Ang daming racist dito grabe. Wala naman issue kung di siya nakikicelebrate ng CNY. Ang issue dito is pagiging racist niya. Dean siya ng isang top university tapos ganyan siya magsalita as if wala siyang colleague,students na chinoy?

  57. Ang mission ng college of pharmacy “ generate, advance, and transmit knowledge to form competent and compassionate ...” asan yung knowledge, competent and compassionate? While personal na opinion nya yung post nya, yung identity nya is so intimately tied to her profession (dean) na kelangan masusing pag iisip bago mag post sa public. More importantly sino ba followers nya? Mostly those affiliated with the school and her profession di ba? Tangalan ng lisensya yan and remove her as dean - kakahiya ka sa propesyon.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I am Chinese Filipino. Filipino in identity but proud of my Chinese heritage and origins. I like balut just like I like century egg. Virgin's Mary's birthday, Guan Yin's birthday, Christmas Day. Buddha's birthday are all important to me. I read the bible, Confucian classics and Buddhist scriptures.

    I particularly enjoy celebrating Gregorian new year, Chinese new year, and celebrate Aid'l Fit'r with my Muslim colleagues. All these serve to enrich me and made me what I am. The rich traditions and heritage my forebears bequeathed to us we introduce to our Filipino brethren and younger generations. They are embedded into the tapestry of Philippine national culture -- certainly made more colorful and richer by the blending of cultures and traditions and the presence of different groups who are Filipinos regardless of race, class, religion, belief or traditions.

  59. Siguraduhin niya wag rin siya gumamit anything from China wag siya mag Chinese food, iPhone other gadgets etc kasi lahat makakaalala sa kanya ng COVID. And while she’s at it make sure to also not use anything from Japan, Spain and USA since ginahasa at binaboy ang mga tao at lupa ng Pilipinas. Tumira nalang siya sa bundok kasama ng mga NPA.

  60. It’s such a highly-irresponsible comment coming from the Dean of the only ChED-recognized Center of Excellence Pharmacy Program, no less. “With great power comes great responsibility.” Even a fictional character like Spider Man embraces and advocates that, Dean. - From a proud alumnae of the UST Faculty of Pharmacy and an even prouder registered pharmacist who was bred under the highly-intelligent, well-respected and well-mannered Dean then, Dr. Norma V. Lerma.
