In , a video of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte dancing with a couple of teenagers to a loud and repetitive tune full of weird noises and hooks went viral online. The video went on to amass millions of views while Duerte went on to win the presidency that year. The music in the video was called budots and launched into a full-blown dance craze that took over the streets of the Philippines for years to come. Even now, budots songs and the accompanying videos of dance compilations have millions of views online. Film director Jay Rosas was as intrigued as you are right now, and decided to do a little digging. Davao City lies in the southern part of the Philippines and is believed to be where the endemic dance music genre emerged in before going on to capture a nation. Budots took the nation by storm — appearing in memes, TV shows, and news features, even being used in a political campaign by Senator Bong Revilla and of course danced by now President Rodrigo Duterte. It seemed like the craze arrived suddenly from nowhere, infecting the contemporary culture of the Filipinos. But like all music and art forms, it surely must have come from somewhere and created by someone who appropriately deserves the recognition. Jay tells us that what drove him to focus on Budots was that despite its path is slowly cementing itself in the local culture, there was still a scarcity of related literature about it.

You can't provide that for her so your marriage will be defective from the outset. I used to be religious when I was a kid. The important thing is that you are getting to know one another, not that you are always doing fancy things. In addition to your religious leaders, there are counselors who specialize in interfaith couples. When I see my boyfriend hard at work, it also inspires me to improve and challenge myself in my own way. Listen, you are in a bad situation and it just has not come to a head yet. Otherwise you risk having an awkward mix between dating and hanging out, which can be uncomfortable for those involved.
