Will the Brazilians think I’m cuter because I speak Portuguese? Or is this guy simply cute?

When I visited Brazil the first time last year, I instantly fell in love – – – with the country sillies!!! It’s because of the warmth of the people whom I met there. Somehow, I could relate it back to the times when I still lived in Manila. Their personalities and attitudes are almost exactly the same with Filipinos.

I started learning Portuguese when I got back. I purchased a CD and a “Speaking Portuguese for Dummies” book. I still haven’t mastered the language but I do enjoy speaking with my friends online.

I’m sure the same thing happened to author Rafe Bartholomew when he was researching the Philippine’s love for basketball. I mean, research is one thing but if you fall in love with the people – – learning the language is another.

Listen to how good this guy speaks in Filipino… and because of that, I think he looks cuter. Not that he’s not cute to begin with but when he speaks Filipino… awwwwww!

His book, Pacific Rims is out and he was in NYC Barnes & Nobles in Union Square last night to promote his book and I was just in NYC last weeked! Arrgghh!

Anyways…

Watch…
