MOVIE MONDAY: Balagtasan: Payat vs. Mataba

Special thanks to my colleague Aldrin for raving about this video.

I'm a fan of balagtasan since I were a young lass. Such were so engaging to read or watch and I even enjoyed writing my own pieces in the past. Too bad I just can't recall what topic/s I tackled to present opposing viewpoints. And I'm curious if I were witty enough to hold a reader's attention and how did I conclude such composition. Where did I dump those old writings anyway?

As the title implies, this video revolves around the verbal quarrel between skinny and fat people. We've all heard the points the other side presented - the unsightly excess pounds, the indolence, the extra space they occupy in public transportation and so on. I admit I had a laugh or two and I find myself at peace even if I don't fully agree in their opinions. It may be true for some people, but I know that it's not applicable to every fat people on earth. At the end of the day, it's just that - opinions.

How about you? Did this video make you feel less of a goddess that you actually are? Let me send you a virtual hug.


  1. No, at least they made it as 2-way humor. Had few laughs mainly dahil kay Ogag & Tuesday. It's nice seeing him again.

    1. Tuesday Vargas is so funny, no? Hahaha! I'd like to see her perform live talaga!
