Reality bites

"How does it feel to live in a 3rd world country?" an ex-filipino asked with a smile. i said, "well, Philippines a very good country. Welcome to the third world country. Welcome to world's Pearl of the Orient. With all the poverty crisis, we were still able to cope up with the so called "globalization". Yeah most of the time it's hard to live and just to stand by and that crimes are easily found in the city. but Filipinos have a very good heart. we are poor but we still love one another. we don't want want anyone of us to get hurt. We don't have big fonds to just spend for something unncessary. Because of war in Lebanon, many Filipinos have to suffer the consequences, anyone may die without any of their relatives knowing. But the goverment didn't let that thing happen. they evacuated a lot of Filipinos there. We Filipinos know how to prioritize. We know what to do forst. Because of poverty, because of being in a 3rd world country, we are determined to get over it. We are rich in love. We are determined to be a totally different country. We are rich in natural resources but because of love to our motherland, we decided to conserve and preserve it. but what did you do first world countries? the so called upper class? How does it feel to destroy and to own something that is not yours? " He stopped. have i annoyed him with my answer? or have i just made a good stand?

anyway. you made a good stand, although you offended that ex-filipino. :) yes, america is a very progressive country. but they use their resources in a wrong tune. they make tanks and weapons and everything.

'how does it feel to destroy and to own something that is not yours?'

nice. you stand proud as a filipino! anyway. dumaan. http://utakgago.blogspot.com comment ko ;)

i believe.. optimism is a light in the dark room. with optimistic people around, we get a bigger chance of coping up.
