a few minutes ago, we were watching the delayed telecast of the today show on 2nd avenue when they showed the "live" announcement of the golden globe nominees. and there was quentin tarantino, mukhang bagong gising, in the podium announcing the nominees for best drama. when we realized, hey, he's wearing a barong tagalog! that must be the barong tagalog he wore to his visit to malacañang when he got caught in a flash flood that caused a monster traffic jam so he had to wade through waters to take a pedicab and ended up wetting his trousers so he had to change into someone's jogging pants last august. of course he looked a bit disheveled and unkempt and kooky. that's probably what prompted defamer to express shock at his "less-than-tidy appearance," showing up with a "distressing combination of uncombed hair and decidedly casual, girth-obscuring shirt." granted, the shirt was not ironed and he was not wearing it properly, but hoy! educate yourselves! in the philippines, the barong tagalog is considered FORMAL WEAR. this is the problem with some of these bloggers: they're just too lazy to do their fact-checking and research. or they're just smart asses.
