now regarding the accent, a typical pinoy guy would have almost the exact same accent as Pacman when they talk. lol
Thanks to my many years of living in San Diego where there are Pinoys/ays galore....my ability to mimic a "Pilipino" accent is almost spot on....plus it helps to listen to a lot of Rex Navarrete(sp?).
^ now this made me laugh
funny thing is, those who are considered "upper class" here are the ones who has that accent. the ones from lower middle class and below sounds better. all thanks to the BPO industry perhaps?
Bleh, don't even get me started on "upper class" Filipinos...I used to HATE those old, upper class Filipinas that would come into my old job, treat me like some lower class servant, then NOT leave a dag gone tip......all I can say to that is, putanginamo....
But yeah, my gf is a lower middle class pinay...and she definitely can pronounce F sounds decently...although, I do find it funny that she refers to any gender in the feminine(i.e. when referring to a male, she'll always say "she or her"). Oh and the whole "open/close da light" thing always cracks me up, lol.
(FTR: I'm a white american guy with a generic east coast accent. A Japanese girlfriend once called it "American English teacher English")
