Ta da! The Chicharito mobile. Cuteness overload or what?!! This is just…. lol I’m speechless this is the funniest, most adorable thing I’ve seen in a long time. xD
This just in: Famous Mexican Soccer League & World cup ref Marco Rodríguez better known to many as “Chiqui Marco” will be releasing his own hair styling product “Chiqui Gel. “Chiqui Marcos?”(pronunced chee kee) Where does that come from? For those who don’t know, the nick name is an allusion to the famous Mexican pop culture character “Chiqui Dracula” (baby, little Dracula) played by child star- turned comedian/actor Carlos “Carlitos” Espejel on 1980’s children’s program “Chiquilladas”. Why the nick name? Take a look at this ref and it’s the first thing you’ll notice, there’s no missing it. Mr.Rodríguez’s extreamly slick choice of hair style is rather congruent with “Chiqui Dracula’s.” “Chiqui Marco” doesn’t mind the nick name though,he embraces it, the persona born from it, and the celebrity that comes along with it. The gel is a hair product aimed at children, but he says he hopes that a wide range of people will enjoy his product. Mr.Rodríguez has confessed to using it himself. Those working on the product hope to have it in stores all over the country (Mex) very soon. This begs the question: Will the “Chiqui Marco” hairstyle become a fad??? Lol seriously doubt it. Cool idea for the kiddies though. If I had kids I’d buy them Chuiqui gel, but we’d use it with discretion and measure of course xD So there it is, your daily scoop of Mexican Pop Culture, and now you’re in the know.

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!!
