When you say Philippine election it is always expected to be hot and well contested. As they say there’s no losers in Philippine elections only cheated.
But with Filipinos wit, innate “craziness” and creativity, this year’s election became hotter and more funnier. In fact one senatorial candidate Dick Gordon penetrates inside the realm of social media as the hashtag #IpasokSiDick became viral spanning different social media platforms and getting on top of worldwide trends in twitter.
As of this writing, Vice Presidential daughter and UNA Senatorial candidate Nancy Binay still ranks 5th with 12,480,011 votes. Her apparent win is not well accepted by social media people and netizens.
While even before the election she was already been target of different memes and ire from the netizens, her imminent win became a bigger chance for the discontented to pour more satire and jokes about her.
Below are some of the MEMEs about Nancy and certain people’s reaction on her candidacy and her apparent win.
It’s really amazing how Filipinos can come up with this funny messages. Just proves that Filipinos whenever or whatever stress is happening in the surroundings there will always be comic relief to make the situation lighter.

Is it star struck or fear? That is the question puzzling my mind when I saw the interview of Ricky Lo to Les Miserables star Anne Hathaway.
In the interview, Lo seemed uncomfortable from the very start as he was stuttering with his questions. There were also several unintelligible questions being thrown at Hathaway which made her look like rude and bitching Lo with her sarcastic answers. Lo is known to be one of the credible entertainment columnist in the Philippines but this interview with Hathaway really became so awkward and distasteful not to mention shameful and disgraceful.
