I have so much respect for her. I'm so glad I've read this book. My favorite line: You're the reason God created the middle finger. View all 7 comments. That first chapter? It so depicts our never ending battle with issues regarding politicians and politics itself. My gosh i felt blood oozing from my nose and in everywhere. I was enjoying and laughing while reading this on a public transportation on the way to the office.
People might think I was crazy laughing all by myself. Pick-up lines was harsh but funny and true. The book itself? Informative, Funny and Badass.
I l "You're the reason God created the middle finger. I love her speeches. High level thinking required at some pages but definitely worth reading. This lady is very very intelligent, has so much guts and wit. I have so much respect for her, for her ideas and beliefs. I wonder what would our Government be like if she really was put as the President of the Republic of the Philippines. As they say She won in the voting but lost in the counting.

Malabo na talaga ang mga mata ko. Pwede ba akong humingi sa iyo ng kahit konting pagtingin? Dahil puno na ng kasamaan ang mundo, pinuntahan ng Diyos si Noah, na ngayon ay nakatira sa Pilipinas. Inutos sa kanya ng Diyos: Pagkatapos ng anim na buwan, uulan at babaha ng apatnapung araw at gugunawin ko ang mundo.
Nakita niya na walang arko si Noah. Sabi ni Noah, "Pasensya na Lord. Hindi ko po natapos ang arko. Una, kailangan ko raw po ng building permit.
Sunod, nahirapan po akong makakuha ng kahoy na hindi galing sa illegal logging. Nahirapan po akong makakuha ng environmental permit sa DENR dahil sa mga endangered species na dadalhin ko.
Pinapa-lifestyle check po ako ng BIR, dapat daw magbayad ako ng buwis. Hindi ko po natapos ang arko sa loob ng anim na buwan. Naunahan na ako ng gobyerno. Law school is quite easy. It's like a stroll in a park. Pero Jurassic Park. Dec 04, Reyvianne Rodriguez rated it really liked it. I must say that this book is not for the masses, let alone the 'intellectually deprived'.
Miriam: ‘I’ve heard millions of stupid things in the Senate’
There are parts that require high level of understanding, though it appears to be a simple book. I found some parts boring or corny, which is forgivable since we know that the author is a total geek. However, all in all, this book is an interesting read. There are many life and political lessons incorporated in it. It is also easy to digest that I finished it in two hours.
Dec 21, Jasmine rated it it was amazing Shelves: Stupid is Forever by Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago is a compilation of her speeches, jokes, pick-up lines delivered or curated by this very famous Filipino public figure. It may seem so funny but such hilarity really makes a lot sense.
It is very small book which can be read for about hours straight. And mind you when you will read it in a public place, you can never stop yourself from laughing from one of those lines. Putting out that kind of expression will leave a mark from those people around you; wondering about what you are reading, and which will also spark an interest from them on how good that book truly is.
Well to be honest, I may seem to be a wide reader, but I rarely got the chance to actually read Filipino books. So when I saw this book of Sen. I was so intrigued by this girl, asking for her reservations of 5 copies! Another 10 copies! And with only one copy left, luckily I got one! So while reading this, I tend to find this book not just a funny one, but also an eye opener about the reality and ugliness of how politics is being run in the Philippines.
And what also fascinated me is that, Sen. She was not giving names, but based from her descriptions, it did give us an idea who they really are. It is also the perfect book to read by our Filipino readers. Especially now that the Presidential Election is on its way. It is something that would really give us a whole new perspective as to why we should vote as wisely as we can. You may think that this book is more likely a publicity. Especially when the Senator herself is very open about her Presidential Candidacy; but as reader of this book.
About When In Manila
The May election is now on its way. So a little reminder to each and every one of us Filipinos. Think wisely before you vote a particular candidate to be one of the next leaders of our country.
For one vote can really make a lot of difference. And to wrap it up, here are my favorite lines from the book, 1. Most people live and learn. Politicians just live. In any Congress, out of people, 2 are honest and intelligent, 10 are criminals, and 88 are good for nothing. The Napoles scandal showed that some politicians are the same all over the country. They promise to build bridges where there are no rivers. Nothing matters more to the future of this nation than to ensure that our young women and men learn to believe in themselves and to believe in their dreams.
My generation has all that it has — not only its love, but also its hope and faith — in your generation. You — the youth who will determine the future of the Philippines — should not only get involved, but also each one of you should be a leader. Leaders are not born; it takes practice to develop the qualities of a leader. A true teacher does not terrorize ignorant students, because a true teacher knows that it is his job to cure ignorance. All professionals in our country need to pass a government exam.
Only a politician does not need any kind of preparation to practice. The purpose of a teacher it to teach, not teaching to flunk a class. The paradigmatic teacher is one who inspires you to read on your own. Mar 23, LailaBC rated it liked it Shelves: Would you believe I am more amazed by her resume written at the last part of the book.
She is such an accomplished person I am in awe of her. I have seen her in person many years ago when I was in college and she visited the university where I studied then and she was and till now very popular among the students.
As the years went by since then she has become more fiercer than ever in politics.
And it doesn't hurt she has such a sharp wit and sarcastic sense of humor. Some of the jokes written Would you believe I am more amazed by her resume written at the last part of the book.
Some of the jokes written in the book especially about crushes and love were pretty much corny so corny that i can't help but laugh out loud reading it. Then there were some speeches she wrote as speaker for some prominent universities. And some jokes that hit on about her political enemies, such guts! And she has the integrity to back it up. I would have loved to have seen some video when she actually delivered some of these hilarious lines..
Over all it was a fast,fun and enjoyable read: A very surprising book. I just bought this book out of curiosity and the title is so catchy then I ended up liking it. I like the book. I was nodding and agreeing most of the time I was reading it. I read it and I realized my vocabulary skill is a no match to hers.

Good book but not as i expect. Moreover, It may seem so funny but such hilarity really makes a lot sense. It is a very small book which can be read for about hours straight. Santiago is definitely not afraid to Good book but not as i expect. With her wisdom and wit, she was able to win the hearts of everyone, especially the youth.
We were all in awe on how she can bravely fight corrupt officials, and still finding a way to keep things light with her humor. Aside from the good laugh, some pressing issues about our politics, economy, and education landscape were also discussed. But you have to read between the lines for it.
Before i read this,i'm expecting a lot about her book,good thing i didn't download,i just borrowed. Feb 22, bea rated it really liked it Shelves: Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago is truly one of the most and very rare admirable politicians in the Philippines. Not only does she have very impressive, mind-blowing accomplishments, she is also incredibly funny, and this book is a testament to her abundant wit.
Brutally honest, unafraid to voice her opinions, willing to defend her principles to the very ends of the earth, she serves as an inspiration not only to aspiring lawyers like me, but to all the women of Asia.
This book is a collectio Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago is truly one of the most and very rare admirable politicians in the Philippines. This book is a collection of jokes, banats and comebacks, and speeches that are perfect for reading aloud to your friends and family. Personally, I admit I had to reread a few of them twice because some concepts or terms were a little unfamiliar to a teenager like me.
Although funny and hilariously quite patama to many public figures in the country , her one-liners will have you not only lol-ing but will have you nodding in agreement or leave you deep in contemplation.
A lot of her lines are actual eye-openers to the controversial ways of our government. This in particular is what makes me admire this book so much. Also filled with wonderful illustrations and caricatures from some of the best young illustrators in the Philippines, this is a must read, not only to my fellow Pinoys but to everyone who needs a bit of cheering up on a bad day. Grab a copy! Dec 03, Christian rated it really liked it Shelves: It's funny when you read it, but it's funnier when you just try and imagine her voice while you're reading it.
The wits and wisdom of the late it pains me a great deal to say it senator is truly a gift to the country if not to the world. Her insights and humor-induced pick-up lines about politics, marriage, and life is very entertaining and thought-provoking a few albeit sometimes already being familiar from collective memory.
But still, the words that fill these pages are worth every sing It's funny when you read it, but it's funnier when you just try and imagine her voice while you're reading it.
But still, the words that fill these pages are worth every single peso and minute of your time. Sen Miriam left the pieces and remnants of her soul and mind to the Filipino people, and I am in constant wonder about what we did to deserve a hero like her. Feb 17, Mark O. Maikli lang tong libro, pero pinutol ko yung pagbabasa kasi napagod ako sa bandang gitna. Hindi dahil sa mahirap intindihin yung mga salita, kundi sa paghahanap ng dahilan para ituloy ko pa.
Pero tinuloy ko padin. Kahit papano interesting naman sya, matalino at maganda ang mga excerpts ng mga speeches nya. Siguro ayoko lang yung mga quotes though nakalagay naman na hindi lahat sila eh original.

I honestly expected more from this. Dec 04, Maria Ella rated it really liked it Shelves: Lola is so witty, you cannot help but admire her courage and brutal honesty. And she used that as a charm. A charm for anyone, especially to a fan like me who aspire to be like her someday Not totally like her, but a bit of her.

Santiago is a Philippine senator-politician that is well known for her wit and charm, bravery and knowledge about politics that was honed by her years of experience in all the three branches of the government, having been served at the executive, judicial and the legislative branches of the government and also with her unmatched educational attainment.
Her face appears on the TV almost every day, her name is always heard on the radio and her name always printed in newspapers. The book includes pickup lines, jokes and speeches. Some of the jokes are common but if you'll think that it was Senator Santiago delivering the message it'll definitely make you laugh. The speeches are commendable. They are insightful to the present situation of the country.
She understands what needs to be done and how to action it. I, myself, enjoy her lines. The book art is also something worth mentioning. The illustrations are catchy and added to the entertainment value of the book. The author successfully mixed humor and wit.
She used this book not only to entertain but also to instill values to the readers like values about leadership, marriage and the value of the youth to the country.
It teaches readers to be mindful of their every action because it has effects that affect everyone. It doesn't only make you laugh but will also make you think. She also highlighted the value on the use of social media. How the youth on their simple ways can help propagate the seed of knowledge about who deserves to be elected.
Her words have this piercing effect to me as a reader especially on the topic of leadership. She was straightforward on what she wants us, readers and voters, to realize.
She reiterated the value of choosing the right kind of leaders the Philippines needs considering the different factors that hamper the growth of the country. The book, though, receives criticisms for the author seems to condition her name for the upcoming presidential election. The book is full of her academic and professional achievements which many interpret as a way of her endorsing herself.
In my own opinion, whatever the main purpose of this book is, it should not overshadow the fact that the main purpose of the book is to educate the people that it should not always be fame that should dictate who should we vote for but we should also look at their achievements because those achievements are just proofs how effective they would be when they get elected.
What I also like about this book is that, for me, it caters to the need of everyone in terms of the book engaging to the level of thinking of its readers. It has parts for the "masa" and it also has parts for those who consider themselves part of the highly intellectual individuals.
This lady's bravery is something that is commendable. Despite not being cleared yet of her lung cancer, she showed that she can still fight and be a force to reckon in the Philippine political scene. Feb 12, Charlene Co rated it really liked it. This book is kind of wicked. Too much jokes inside the book that This book is kind of wicked. Too much jokes inside the book that will burst you into laughters hahaha!
Thus, hoping that she'll be our president someday! Feb 28, Anne rated it it was ok. If you follow Senator Miriam in the news, you'd mostly encounter the speeches and soundbites featured in this book. While it was mentioned that some of the lines in the book aren't all original which was a good thing to mention , I think it still works.
Juxtaposing a stern, no holds barred, fiesty senator and a lady who dishes out pickup lines is golden. However, I would've preferred if the publisher compiled the senator's most provocative speeches in one book.
A lot of young people bought this If you follow Senator Miriam in the news, you'd mostly encounter the speeches and soundbites featured in this book. A lot of young people bought this bookthink about the possibilities of making an even bigger impact if it were a book of speeches. Like they said, the good senator is like a rockstar. Jan 25, Mitchi Honda rated it it was amazing.
I have seen an excerpt of the book a comic strip , and it cracked me up because it is so witty.
Definitely, you check her website. Here you can read all the statements she makes in the press since she became a senator. If you want another blown-by-blown details , you can visit the site of the Philippine Senate. All the information you want to keep track of is accessible in the internet. You are now undoubtedly a Miriam freak. First, before she delivers her speech on the stump, the senator as a rule will regale you with her witty jokes to break the ice. For sure, you will be knocked out off the aisle.
Then, just all the kidding aside, you will listen to her inspiring and educating speeches although a little steeped in political issues. Finally, she will leave us some lines of quotes she must have selected herself. Her speeches I have read but still worth reading have something to do with life. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome.Santiago earned the near-perfect average grade of 1.
I have seen her in person many years ago when I was in college and she visited the university where I studied then and she was and till now very popular among the students. Class, anong gusto niyong maging paglaki niyo? Hindi ko po natapos ang arko. Hindi kasi kita kayang kalimutan, pero kaya kitang palitan.
During any commencement exercise, I always know the graduate who will succeed. Miriam ang mga pick-up line at joke na'to, natatawa pa rin ako.
