GOING VIRAL: Saab Magalona defends 'Pugad Baboy' creator, hits Assumption Antipolo

 
Actress Saab Magalona's blog post immediately went viral – not because of her defense of Medina (PHOTO: The 'lesbian' comic strip: Why Inquirer suspended 'Pugad Baboy'), but for her comments about another all-girls’ school.
 
Saab used her blog to defend Pol Medina, Jr., the creator of the legendary Pugad Baboy comic strips.
 
Pugad Baboy is not only a funny comic strip, it’s a social commentary on Filipinos! Maganda nga na nabubuksan ang mga mata ng mga kababayan natin at napapaisip kung tama o mali ang “nakasanayan na” nila.
 
Complaining about Assumption Antipolo where she and her sister, actress Maxene Magalona, studied, Saab pointed out some of the school’s alleged senseless policies.
 
Pag maraming pinapagbawal, mas nagiging rebelde ang bata. I speak from experience. Sa Assumption Antipolo, even a simple thing like the color of your ponytail holder kailangan blue, red, black or white ONLY. NAKAKALOKA. ANONG CONNECTION SA PAG AARAL?? Simplicity?! Eh paano kung gift sayo ay puro pink na pangtali at wala ka nang budget pangbili ng bago? I must say, marami talagang close-minded na exclusive schools. Ang daming bawal noon sa Assumption. Ang dami ring lesbian. Eh ano ngayon? Sorry. Ang haba nitong number 5. Personal experience lang. Pag may mga cha-cha dance chorva kami for a program edi pinapag-partner partner pa kami ng teachers so nag-iintrigahan ang students and nagkikiligan kasi may holding hands involved sa dancing. Napakawaley.
Saab went on to rant about how her older sister, Maxene, was asked to transfer schools because she starred in a sanitary napkin commercial.

Sorry off topic pero may galit talaga ako sa Assumption dahil they asked my sister to transfer schools because of her Modess commercial. Hindi nga siya artista eh, commercial model lang siya nun. Ang sabi sa family ko okay lang na lumabas sa TV kung educational or something, basta wag bastos or mga beer commercial DUH. Kung may mga greetings for my dad sa Eat Bulaga baka pwedeng wag nalang daw. ANYAREH?! Hindi pwede mag happy birthday sa TV?! Kasalanan ang paglabas sa TV? Hindi educational ang napkin commercial? Hindi lahat ng babae nagkaka-period? SIMPLICITY?! NAG-ARAL BA KAMI PARA MAGING MADRE?! Chos. Di ako galit. Joke lang yung all-caps para mag-LOL kayo. But I’m sure yung mga Assumptionista umiiyak, “OWEMJEE, why is she so galit with our school?!” (Chos again, alam kong hindi ganun magsalita mga taga AA.) Cino-correct ko lang na hindi na-kick out si Maxx because pinanindigan namin na walang mali sa pagtulong sa finances ng pamilya by making a napkin commercial. Tinapos niya ang school year amidst bullying from high school girls na mga inggit at pangit. We transferred schools and sued AA for not undergoing due process. They called her to the principal’s office and made her cry instead of sending a letter to her parents. She was in 7th grade, I think. Very Jesus ang peg ng mga madre, noh? Not. Love you, Maxx. We won the trial, by the way.
“Hindi ako galit sa mga madre at pari. Galit ako sa mga holier-than-thou na hypocrites,” she wrote.

Saab is the daughter of the late Filipino rapper and actor comedian Francis Magalona.

She took up Creative Writing at the Ateneo de Manila University.
