Hey Stranger. I'm Lenina Wanderlust. MNL. I was born upside down -- 62 years after Imelda Marcos and 27 years before Britney Spears, that makes me 100 years old. My favorite word is super. I've always wanted to marry Ringo Starr so I could have his surname. I don't use comb, I have my hands anyway.
I always want to be seen, and to be unseen.
My vices include Eraserheads, Photography, Music, Tattoo, Vintage, Indie, Art, Books, Sweets & anything under the Stars. Half of my body is composed of junk foods; I am no skinny girl.
May nagtext. “Nabusog ako, kinain na kita.” Nanlaki mata ko. Nawindang. Binasa ko ulit.. “Nabusog ako, ikinain na kita.”
AH-UM. Sorry naman.

Pinipilit na iahon kaya bumabangon siya’ng walang kamalay-malay na wala na ‘kong malay hanggang ang bawat saknong ay nagiging tanong na parang gustong tumalon sa malilim na balon lumao’y wala nang puwang nag-iiwan ng patlang ang nagagawa mong hadlang.
Sabi ng reviewer naming lawyer sa Taxation, “Tax is for the poor”, dahil mga mahihirap lang daw ang nakikinabang dito yet hindi naman daw nagbabayad ng tamang buwis. But I beg to disagree.. Tax is for everyone. At kahit mga mahihirap, eh nagbabayad din ng buwis.
My 2 defenses are:
1. Minimum wage earners are exempted from tax. (So duhhh, hindi naman talaga sila magrerelease ng ITR nila sa BIR. Neeedless to say, hindi talaga sila magbabayad ng tax from their work income)
2. Nagbabayad pa din ng tax ang mga mahihirap despite them being a minimum wage earner.. It’s because of VAT. No one is exempted from VAT. Nagkaroon na ba ng exemption from VAT dahil mahirap? Isipin mo nalang pag bumili ka sa Jollibee for example, tapos nakalagay sa receipt— “12% VAT: exempted to this impoverished individual”
Pero syempre, the disagreement is just in my mind. I may be wrong, after all. ;p Pero as of now, that’s how I see tax.. It’s fair to every individual. Whether being poor or not, you are taxed. And that tax is benefited by all. (Wowww, benefited by all, syempre in theory lang, never in practice -__-)
