CHInoy TV (Mandarin Chinese: 菲華電視台, Hanyu Pinyin: Fēi huá diànshìtái) is a magazine show that tackles various topics on the Chinese-Filipino lifestyle and culture. It also features up-to-date information about the latest news and events within the Chinese-Filipino community. The show airs on PTV Channel 4 every Sunday at 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM. While CHI stands for good life and energy, it also stands for a portmanteau of Chino and Pinoy or Chinese-Filipino. The show uses three languages namely: English, Filipino, and Mandarin Chinese (with English subtitles, however) during CHInoy Plus.

Ask Mindy

edit

"What's up Miss Mindy? Since it is the first death anniversary of the late beloved President Corazon Aquino, I would like to know the origin of the term “Cory Magic,” which is believed to have sparked the EDSA revolution. -Andi"

Hi Andi! I'm doing fine here at Wikipilipinas. Regarding your question, Father Catalino Arevalo of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines described Corazon Aquino as having a “will of steel” in calling for civil disobedience against the Marcos administration, but nonetheless displayed no “fuzz, fret or fury” when she led the EDSA People Power revolt. These remarkable characteristics of Tita Cory are believed to have inspired the people to topple the Marcos regime—thus, the term “Cory Magic.” You may read this to know more about her legacy.

More Tsinoy Than We Admit is a book that explores how the Tsinoys have helped shape the destiny of the Philippines and the region over the span of many centuries. Edited by Richard Chu, the book's essays lay out the complex reality that Tsinoys have had to navigate, as both more "Chinese" and more "Filipino" than we may admit.

It created a bicameral Philippine Legislature composed of a Senate and a House of Representatives.
  • August 29, 1896 – The Katipuneros led by Supremo Andres Bonifacio started the general uprising against Spain. They attacked an isolated garrison in Luzon.
