He Jia, an anchorwoman for China Central Television’s (CCTV) nationally televised news broadcast has accidentally declared the Philippines as a part of China. She apparently meant the Huangyan islands — known in the Philippines as the Scarborough Shoal (Panatag Shoal).
I will not be surprised when somebody else from China would declare American Idol contestant Jessica Sanchez – a Filipino-Mexican, as a Chinese citizen also.
Why not? Isn’t almost everything “bang-for-the-buck” in the Philippines are proudly “Made In China”?
Baclaran, Divisoria…and that blank CD turned electronics accessories store known as CD-R King…almost every affordable item they sell came from China.
Even the toys that came with our Jollibee Value Meals were made in China.
Even the Hardware store across the street is owned by a Chinese.
I may wake up one morning realizing everything I bought and own were “Made in China”.
