Faye Nicole San Juan and the Philippine Crabs

Dear Mouse,

People reprimanding Patricia Evangelista to be reckless in writing the article about Faye are committing the same transgression.

This is roc's opinion.He is entitled to it.

I got my own opinion too. I am also entitled to it.

He wrote:

And don't give the b..s about the mother not coming up with her real identity because of the claims against her child.

The Cat sez:

For your information, Sir, according to the live interview with the mother and daughter by Luchi Cruz, a respected TV journalist, the mother’s name is Catherine San Juan- a former teacher and is now pursuing a Nursing degree.

He wrote:

Another crap pitch by Tricia Evangelista to justify her reckless and irresponsible journalistic adventurism. Okay - let me be tactical rather than strategic now. Show me her thesis on The Effect of Ionizing Radiation on the Philippine Fruit Fly. Very intersting indeed.

The Ca t sez:

I do not see irresponsibility on the part of Patiricia Evangelista. First, she was honest to say that she got the story from a paid ad published in the newspapers.Hers is not investigative journalism. It was a reaction from what she read just like any of us or other writers normally do.If Faye was just a product of her rich imagination and she passed it off as true, then that is entirely another story.

Used a fake credit card to buy her airline ticket?

The Ca t sez:

You see, sir, this is what I call exaggeration but the mother's explanation on how they were able to secure their tickets is believable.

The mother said that the tickets for their trips were bought from the money that their relatives,church members and friends contributed. Coming home,they bought the tickets from the prize money, since they lost some of their belongings to that Filipino woman.

He wrote:

The Effect of Ionizing Radiation on the Philippine Fruit Fly. Very intersting indeed. The country might just be able to export every fruit it grows to anywhere in the world if she can irradiate the fruit fly bacteria. Common,(sic) publish the darn thesis!

The Ca t sez:

Faye admitted that it was an old thesis of her mother that she used by evaluating the findings and add some new information. In thesis writing, this is acceptable.It may sound incredible for a 12 year old but this is exactly the reason why we call these children special like the 20-year old Pinoy who graduated law from Harvard.

We have to face the truth that majority of the theses , feasibility studies, business plans written are only good in papers . It is not because, the findings are not valid and feasible but commercial production may not be viable.Besides, validity of the thesis depends on the scope and delimitations set by the researcher.

How many research papers on harnessing energy from ocean water have been discussed and presented by scientists, Filipinos and foreigners alike in international forums ? Have they ever come into fruition?

A few years ago, a study on sexual behavior of (am not sure of the animal)was conducted by an American lady researcher for six years. Her finding was not conclusive, so she asked for more funding and more time.

So why do some international organizations conduct contests about researches, papers and what have you. My theory,Mr. Watson, is to get new ideas.

As to why there is no record in the Sydney immigration for their departure, I am not sure with Australia's policy on exit, but here in the States, we do not go to immigration for exit. Could they check their port of entry ?

patricia evangelista is a teeny bopper feel good columnist in the lifestyle section. yeah her assumptions are quite vague without further proof. i just dont like the praise and "hero treatment" given to faye. what if her story is just a scam to get more donations

The Ca t sez:

As far as I know, she is not asking for donations. She was not also given praise and Hero treatment. My advise. See an eye doctor.

MISS PATRICIA EVANGELISTA, SHUT THE *()%$ UP!!! You may have won the International Public Speaking Competition in London, but your irresponsibility as a journalist is getting on my nerves! Learn how to verify your sources first before printing them on a big-time national newspaper such as the Philippine Star, will you? Stupid ignorant b****!!!

The Ca t sez:

She can not win an international speaking contest if she is stupid or ignorant. Advice. Stop eating talangka. Not good for your health.

Warning: My blog does not allow invectives.

Disclaimer: I do not know Faye personally.My information about her are based on the article and her interview in Special Assignments. I googled her name and pinoyblog came out number one (sabi ko na nga ma'am sassy at sir yuga, gawin na ninyong blog of the week..aray hindi na brick, buong nirerenovate na kitchen na)while Now What Cat trailed behind. The website of the Metrobank MTAP deped is of no use either.

Hi, I'm flyingroc whose blog you have linked to in this post. I must clarify that it seems you have mistakenly taken comments by other people as my own opinion.

What you have quoted here are opinions of people who have read my website and not necessarily my own. I do not like invectives as well, but I do not as yet feel the need to censor other people's comments.

I *am* still skeptical, as it seems there is still no evidence aside from the document that the girl and her mother provided that such a competition exists. Also, if you read my post, there is a claim about joining the MTAP-DEPED contest when she was in grade 2 which is also dubious.

Can someone explain why Faye's mother requested to conceal her daughetr's identity on the initial release of the story. She mentioned that she was compelled to do so because of certain "claims" on her daughter Faye.
What the heck does she mean by this?

Sinulatan ka na nga ni flyingroc na hindi kanya ang mga komentaryong inilagay mo pa sa loob ng kahon, hindi mo pa rin tinanggal. =) Kung babalikan mo yung website niya: pati yung unang apat na komentaryo na sinasabi mong kanya ay hindi talaga kanya kundi galing sa mga bisita ng kanyang website.

Alam ko namang magaling kang tao at hindi mo hahayaang manatiling mali ang naka-post sa iyong blog. siya, paalam na.

mangangapitbahay lang ako sa ibang blog.
