Why is it that a lot of Fairview residents can't say "Fairview" properly? I've heard all sorts of ways they murder the name; pehr-byoo, fehr-byoo (one of the most common), pehr-vyoo, fehr-vyoo, peyr-byoo, feyr-byoo.

It's so annoying. If you take pride in living where you live, you'll be proud of that place, and taking the effort to say the name properly is part of that.

If these people living in Fairview really love Fairview, they wouldn't butcher the name, right?

Exempted na yung mga taga Greater Lagro who simply say they live in Fairview because they're technically not Fairview residents. 😆

Not sure if this is a sarcasm but why bother our wrong pronunciation of Fairview by not using the most exact pronunciation as the one used by the Americans? Most people use the "erroneous" one because it's based on the Philippine English, and our tongue is quite different than the Americans, even Visayan and Indians, they'll have a different pronunciation, regardless of studying English or related subjects in Primary to Tertiary, thru work in BPO or not. I think mod, it's wrong to demand everyone to correct it that is not that possible.

I have my classmates na taga-Fairview and yeah, fehr-byoo tawag nila. Kahit mga taga-North Fairview naman at mga nag-aaral sa North Fairview HS. Ako na taga-Commonwealth, fehr-byoo rin pronunciation ko riyan. Pati na rin ng mga sumasakay ng PUV pa-Fairview. Isama ko pa mga media reporters

Nakasanayan na siguro iyan. Ika nga, kung ano'ng bigkas, s'yang baybay (or the opposite?)

Anyway, Greater Lagro ba ang pinakamalaking barangay sa QC in terms of land area (because of La Mesa Reservoir)?

Holy sh*t!!!! o_O



What is disturbing is the aerial footage shows one of the office towers that NEED to be built! Hopefully its just stock footage and the site itself is okay and continuing in full swing...
