So I’ve spent sometime having a bunch of fun exploring, and finding out about things that are ” Sugoi! ” (Japanese) すごい , “chwego” 최고(Korean), 好极了, “hǎojíle”(Mandarin)….etc. Ha ha, in other words : Right now the Eastern culture wave is all the rage, and has captured my interest as well. However, although I have had a great time finding out about other countries: their culture, pop culture, and modern culture… Along the way I found that there’s something missing in the current circle of all things “COOL”. There is not enough props or representation of all things “CHIDO!” Chido= Mexican Slang for: cool, awesome, amazing, great…etc
It’s sad that some have become so enthralled with Eastern culture that I’ve actually heard some people say “This and this is so cool, there is no such thing in my culture, when in fact there is, but due to lack of knowledge they believe their culture to be lacking . Or My culture is not as fun, amazing, or fascinating. I wish I could speak that language, live in that country, or be from that culture.” It’s so totally true that they’re many way cool things about these cultures and that they are infectious and interesting. But I feel that in the process of enjoying other cultures some are forgetting or purposely turning their backs on their own cultures. They look down on, underestimate, and give their roots the brush.
So the goal of this blog is to spread “Chido” l♥ve all over the place. To share all things cool about my culture with new friends. I want to honor & represent Mexico & it’s culture with a truthful representation full of respect & pride, without shouldering, or promoting stereotypes.
WELCOME ALL to the blog , & let’s have a “MEGA SUPER CHIDO” TIME a.k.a. A blast!!
