Pinoys' celebration with beer kicks off this first "ber"month, though Oktoberfest will officially brew abroad a few weeks from here. Atpresent, the Philippines holds two world records: the longest beer bar and thelargest beer-toasting crowd. Truly,Pinoys' love for merriment suits well with beer.

Meanwhile, KMJS continues its social analysis by dissectingthe so-called Music Tagalog Version or MTV.
The phenomenal hit song, Umbrella by Rihanna now has aTagalog version called Payong: Seems like translating English songs to Tagalogis now the "in" thing.
Is this a sign of Pinoy creativity or lack of originality?
