exact opposite in Phils. kapal muks sana all. kaso, politicians here r the epitome of hypocrisy and dishonesty. not to mention faces as thick as...theres not even a thing that i can compare it with. just the thickest Big word yan pra sa mga opisyal natin... ACCOUNTABILITY Duterte, keep up tayo. Please pnppio Pakitag po si Sinas.

Not in the Philippines. Major Sinas must do the same. But most Filipinos does not have 'delikadesa'. Maraming Walang Hiya. Bahala na ang mukha. Atlis may isang salita Shame on us Tapos sasabihin na pasaway mga pinoy. Baka dahil pasaway ang mga nasa pwesto kaya they emulate them. Eh kung ganito mga leaders natin, may hiya and accountability sa actions nila baka maging good example sila sa mga tao.

Love it enjoy the game though priceless🀄️🀄️🀄️ Di makaka relate mga abusado nasa gobyerno dito sa Pinas! Wala ng kakapal pa sa sobrang kakapalan ng pagkakapal kapal na muka! 😡 Koko Pimentel, Dr. Edcel Silvana, Debold Sinas, Mocha Uson, Harry Roque, Francisco Duque, at sa mga hindi nakasamang alipores ni he-who-must-not-be-named-made-in-china. kasama pa pala sya (Rodrigo Duterte). sayang hindi kayo Japanese

Delicadeza and Amor Propio. The things we lack in govt peeps. Ay. In the PH, they get promoted pa. Stupidity is very much tolerated here. Ambunan mo naman ng konting hiya iyong nagpamañanita. Meanwhile in PH, Officials who violate the law are given compassion, keep their position and just move on.. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Sana sa Pilipinas hindi lang pagmo-move on ang kayang gawin. Sana ganito din. Sana ganyan din sa pilipinas In the Philippines, they get exempted from quarantine rules that apply to everyone else... provided you’re in the President’s inner circle. I-Tag nyo si Sinas baka busy pa sa MOVE ON Party nya! .. Kelan kya sa pinas? Sna gnyan. Din mga politicians dito n makkapal ang mukha o kya mag harakiri mga corrupt 🤣🤣🤣 Asan poh ung mga Delicadeza nio? Teka nga Asan ba ung pamalo kohhh?

Sana sa Ph din Marami sanang maaaring matutunan at maipapakita ang mga public officials ng Pilipinas (mula sa pangulo pababa) sa pandemyang covid_19. Isa na rito ang paano maging ACCOUNTABLE AT HONORABLE. Sayang at pinalalagpas nila. Yan ang dapat Ikukumpara niyo talaga ang Pinoy sa Hapon? Ano 'to, patawa? 🤣🤣

Sa Japan malakas ang sense ng accountability and delicadeza. Si Sinas glaring ang mga paglabag, tpos ssabihan lang ang tao na mag move on na kasi sya nag move on na! Kapal ng mukha! Kapit tuko sa posisyon! Bonjing Salot! Sa atin, ang kakapal nang mga pagmumukha. Parang sinas numero 50 ka kakapal. Mga walang delicadeza. Huling-huli na, lulusot pa dahil protektado.

We can only dream that for the Philippines Kung may ganyan tayong accountability, I'd understand someone saying the law is the law... Pero sabi nga diba? libre mangarap Philippine officials must be shaking. Sila pa may ganang magalit, mag-demanda at mag-'move-on'. 🤦🏼‍♂️ Di natin sila ma-reach. Sa kanila pag may kahihiyang naganap, sila na mismo, voluntarily na magreresign pero pag mga opisyal sa Pilipinas may nagyaring ganyan, ipaglalaban pa nila 😂

ph politicians violating Bayanihan Law: tanging ang pangulo lang ang makapagtatanggal sa amin pangulo: mabait yan, na-ano lang yan. kwan...p*tanginang veerus, thank you Xi iba talaga mga hapon. yung iba pa nga nagpapakamtay dahel sa kahihiyan. ibang iba dito sa pilipinas.. Siñas left the group 😂 Hopefully Sinas will follow this judge

Wow, hanep sila sa delikdesa sa sarili. To NCRPO Chief Sinas, and even to the President, baka kulang kayo sa pinagsasalaminan, take this one o. Iba ang desiplina ng Japan...sa pinas kahit kitang kita n mali kapit tuko pa rin sa pwesto... magpapalusot pa.. Joke sing joke... The japanese prosecutor is no doubt more decent and honorable than the top NCR police Sinas and top health official Duque who refused to resign despite committing one wrong move after the other that endangered the lives of many Filipinos during this crisis.

This is what Pinoy Politics should have ‘delicadeza’ sa japan ata nag-originate concept of delicadeza The Philippines could never ChangeIsComing Mocha, Koko, Digong, Sinas left the group. Delicadeza, Sentido Comun & Palabra de Honor don't mean anything to these buffoons. Only Duralex, Uratex! I really admire the sense of accountability and honor of the Japanese.

Paging Debold Sinas! Debold could never!!! Meanwhile in the 🇵🇭, kapal ng mukha and feeling entitled runs in the govt that even if they break the law, Sorry lang, pwede na, ok na 'The government you elect is the government you deserve' wow. mahjong lng yan ah. mañanita e proud pa ba kinampihang ng amo. kpal ng mukha. mañanita

Worth emulating. Integrity is very crucial to the Japanese people. Sa Pilipinas ? Si Sinas ang model natin ! Makapal , matigas, insensitive at bigot sa lahat WALANGHIYA !!! Sana all..... Sana ganyan din sa Pilipinas. Tama nalaman ko yan sa lolo ko nung nabubuhay pa sya. Tawag nya jan palabra de honor kapag nanumpa ka tuparin mo wag mong paasahin kung di mo kayang tuparin o di kaya'y mag hara kiri ka na lng..

dito ankapal You gotta love Japanese honor and honesty Tapos si Sinas, Pimentel, Mocha at kahit ang Pangulo? May trabaho pa rin. Sinas, Koko, Mocha: didn't left the chat. They didn't get it why he has to resign. Not because of their brain cells' (low) quality but because DELIKADESA is missing from their DNA.

hay dito harapan harapan pa tayong niloloko Here in the Phils.... Top general violated quarantine..... .of course he will stay...nobody to r eplace him. No more good cops! Or HE WILL BE PROMOTED.....just wait 😂😂😂😂😂 Paging gen.sinas!🙏👊 government officials left the group.! Wag ikumpara sa mga Pilipino, malayo masyado ang deperensya, matapang sila, dto matapang lang magsalita

Buti pa ang mga hapon kapag may nagawang pagkakamali resign na agad kasi alam nila kung paano mahiya eh! SenKokoPimentel at MochaUson ba marunong mahiya well mukhang di sila marunong mahiya si koko matagal ng korakot si Mocha hubaderang walang utak😂😂🤣🤣 May delikadeza ang mga Japanese. Sa Pilipinas, may mga opisyal na makakapal ang mukha, kapit tuko sa posisyon. Nakakasuka! 🤮

Iba sila. Yan Yung no.1 n wala Kay DoDirty. Honor.. Sana all... Makakapal ang mga mukha mga mga politiko sa Pinas. Mga 10 km ang kapal. Hindi man lang tablan ng DELICADEZA. Wtf Why can't we have delicadeza like this... In Philippines, SanaAll This is how it should go. Sa Japan, may natitira pang dangal sa mga nakaupo sa puwesto, and they have HIGH regard on their countrymen kaya ganyan na lamang ang nagawa ng isa sa kanilang mga alagad ng batas dahil ang pananatili sa puwesto sa kabila ng nagawang labag sa batas ng tao’y kahalangan ng bituka.

Sana lahat may kahihiyan katulad nito. Sana yung pulis na nagpa 'mañanita' ganito rin ang gawin chz 1-2-3 po ba? Asa naman dito sa atin na ganyan din e pakapalan ng mukha dito hahaha Government position is NOT A PRIVILEGE. Everyone is dispensable. If you have integrity and delicadeza, RESIGN. (Sinas, Pimentel, Uson, Duque)

Meanwhile in the so called Pearl of the Orient. 🤡🤡🤡 Sa Pinas, walang delicadeza e Walang Sinas sa Japan! Sa pinas patigasan ng mukha tong mga nasa gobyerno. Hindi pa rin nahihiya. Ang kakapal ng mukha! Sana all....calling Mocha and Debold Sinas.... At least he has delicadeza. Dito da Pinas, huli mo na sya akto, kapit tuko pa e.

sa Pilipinas bistado na hindi pa nagreresign e Katok katok sa mga makakapal dyan! Nyeta kayo! Dito they have all the guts and thick face to even stay to their positions, and EVEN run for a position in the government. Shameless. Meanwhile in PH, sana magmove-on n mga bashers ko - Sinas BALIIIIIIWWWWWWWW Delicadeza! Wala nyan sa gobyerno ng animal sa malakanyang!

Meanwhile crocodiles in the Philippines.. kung ganito lang govt ng Pinas ewan ko na lang ndi tayo umasenso aw shucks! they don't get any support from their top honcho? man, that sucks. them japanese folks must be sooo decent. and honorable. and conscientious. no wonder they are so progressive. Meanwhile in the Philippines...

Japanese people value their honor. Sa Pinas, grabe, NO SUCH THING AS HONOR! KAHIT GUILTY, DENY PA RIN! Sana all may delicadeza. Sana all Sanaol Japanese official: Honor & dignity Pinoy official: Buti pa toh, may Delicadeza Only in Japan! yan ang dapat.. nahihiya s ginawang mali. In a certain country ruled by He-who-must-not-be-named, the lawmakers and law implementers are the top lawbreakers. However, they can still keep their positions.

Sa Japan meron mga delicadeza govt officials. Dito Pinas karamihan mga sinverguenza ang govt officials. Delicadeza hindi inarbor ng prime minister 😅 So unlike in the Philippines. These people resign out of delicadeza. What about Sinas? No delicadeza Ngayon mag nga-ngaw ang ibang Pilipino dahil maganda DISIPLINA sa Japan. Parang kahapun lang pinanganak . Di ba? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Daming ISTUPIDO.

Sa Pinas, pakapalan ng taba, at pa contest para mas magiging balahura kay Poon. Pa arbor naman po nito. Koko Pimentel , Debold Sinas, Mocha Tanga, (pinapatamaan kayo ng Inquirer oh) Meanwhile in the Philippines... ay wag na.... kakasuya na. How I wish we have the same government officials. With honor and dignity.

Iba talaga pag may HONOR and DECENCY ang tao. This is a usual Japanese trait, especially for government officials. Dito, kaliwa’t kanan na kapalpakan at kakapalan ng mukha, mag rarason pa. Here in the Philippines, sorry lng okay na. Tapos, tatakbo pa uli sa next halalan at mananalo pa. We are a republic of comedy.

This is good. Inquirer find some more examples in other countries and flood our socmed. And in doing so, publish also how their peolpe deal with their govt’s rules China lang idol nila. Wala ng mababago dun In the Philippines, public officials will wish that the people would move on from their outrage. Kakaiba ang pinoy!

Dito sa Pinas, PAKAPALAN ng mukha 🤡 Sila pa nagrequest na mag move on na mga tao 🙄 May delicadeza Grabe, bilib talaga ako! Koko left the group... Mocha left the group... Sinas left the group... Kailan kaya mangyari sa Philippines na may mag resign due to quarantine violation? Siya ay isang modelo sa mga government officials. Siya ay dapat tularan. Bihira ang tulad niya specially dito sa Pilipinas. Am I right Sinas,Duque,Roque & Cayetano? 🤨😳

God I wish our government officials,congressmen,senators,president💔 have the same humility,decency,morale like japanese... idk😪💔🇵🇭 To Our Govt Officials...Sana Ganito Din Kayo!!! Pinagkaiba ng taong may dangal at ng wala That is principle and honor. Dahil mali ang nagawa ay kusa bumitao sa pwesto. Yan ang Japanese. Mayroon dyan dahil sa mananita ay pilit pa rin kumapit sa pwesto! It’s only in the Philippine.

Koko, Debold and Mocha thinks he is stupid How I wish all government officials have this dignity ..... suntok sa hangin Das wünsche ich mir von Merkel, AKK, Steimeier auch. In the Phils., they would strap themselves to the table and barricade the office, and gather goons for hire. Simply ‘kapalmuks’ mentality.

Hoy! Bong Revilla and Friends ! HAHAHAHA 🤣
