Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada does it again. With with good looks and youthful energy, he charms the Filipino people. Last night, he became a trend along with Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto, the “Mexican Papi” with the Twitter hashtag, #APEChottie.
A photo posted by a Facebook user, Nino Lozada, became viral after the “Canadian Bae” gained so far popularity in the Philippines. The photo shows the Canadian PM wearing a jacket with the Philippine flag design. He even got his name printed on the left chest.
Context background of the caption:
The yellow ribbon is the symbol of the Liberal Party (political party) of the President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III — the Philippines’ current leader. It was used since the People Power Revolution which ousted the Macros regime last February 7, 1986. Some even see is as a symbol of hope.
Hacienda Luisita is a controversial vast land in Central Luzon owned by the family of President “Noynoy” Aquino. The lot involved a lot of rebellions and protest which took the lives of many farmers and activists for many decades.
“Noytards” is a slang of the combination of the words “Noynoy” and “retards”. Probably this man is not a supporter of the president and his party. The term can also be interpreted as a ridicule of the rumors that the President have medical history of mental defects.
For the time being, the photo generated 4,700+ likes, 670 shares, and 54 comments. The reception of the photo is also a manifestation of the current beauty standard of Filipino’s which are very much in line to the Western criteria.
If only Pres. Noynoy Aquino is good-looking, he might also enjoy the same popularity.
