Gee, someone's got OCD. LOL! Well then, since you like Chavacano, maybe you'll like this song, sung by Julia "Titang" Enriquez Jaldon:



Desu sunriza bien mentao
Desu carino bien alabao
Desu dulsura ay que bien templao

Na sitio de Zamboanga
Donde el maga dalaga
Bien pusturiosa y cariñosa pa
El maga soltero ta alaba desu custumbre
Que bien graciosa y bien dulce si ta conversa

El Zamboangueña bien sumisa y amable
Que desuyo trongko de España ya vene pero algunas veces
Tiene le un mal aranque
De un Española como un tigre si ta rabia

Al mira le na tu ojos
Nunca tu el puede olvida
El manera ta clava la desu uñas na to corazon
Desu sunriza bien mentao
Desu dulsura ay que bien templao
Ele ya nace para sirvi
Con el suertista quien el recibi su cariño y devosyon

Poreso hombre poco poco lang el paso
Para cuji na lazo con un Zamboangueña
Besos y abrasos amo lang puede captiva
Di suyo hestos debe tu de save Ileva

Que el verdadero custombre de un Zamboangueña
Antes tu de acerca, necessita tu asigura
Que manera inamora

Que el Zamboangueña
Bien sungurin pero nunca'l admiti
Cosa conele ya hace iri, maskin su corazon sufri
Ansina su vida le-ta vivi

Besos y abrazos, amo lang puede captiva
Debe tu de sabe Ileva y tambien sabe alava
Para su amor puede tu captiva

Or maybe he's trying to impress us with his knowledge of Old Spanish. ;-)

Altavoz is Altaparlante in latin American Spanish. Frnco or Frankie is not a Francophone but maybe he's gay.

Soy de Las Filipinas, I prefer Spaniard(Castillian/Castellano) accent.

Filipino Spanish accent is the same as Mexicans, so are our Spanish wordings and fluent words.

Though you may not find a Spanish speaker that easy at this current time in the Philippines. We all speak English now, if you know a Filipino from Zamboanga or the provinces around Zamboanga, Spanish is still their provincial language alongside Chabacano and Cebuano dialects.

Or if you know someone from the Philippines who belongs to the high class citizens, we do speak Spanish,Tagalog and English as our first languages.

Our accents are either Spain or Mexico.

Hispano parlante is proper spanish. That's how it's pronounced in Spain.

Spanish is spoken by just 20 million as non-native language and it's not that important!

Only the Spaniards and the Hispanic Americans love to speak it but to the rest it's' inutile

<<They even do it among themselves. Example: clombians vs venezuelans, chicanos vs ticos, peruvians vs chileans, spaniards vs hispanic americans.>>

You don't understand all the historic background that causes those rivalries because you aren't Hispanic. So I advise you to keep your mouth shut. Thank you very much.

The only way to make this clear and fair is by listening all the different accents:






Now tell me, which one is the most Neutral, and which one sounds the nicest?

Your English is silly. You mean "take speech classes". And it's called Argentina.
