You could also add that the Filipino can still smile and laugh even through suffering. It's very refreshing that you choose to look at the positive traits of the Filipino. Yes, the Filipino is beautiful too. Just yesterday a friend and I were discussing the phenomenal hospitableness of the rural Filipino who will offer his visitor his own bed and himself sleep on the floor. He will slaughter his only chicken just to feed his visitors. He will spend his whole day as your guide around his village just to make sure you will be safe and have all your questions and needs served. And this is done not only for foreign visitors but for fellow Filipinos as well.

I have made a post about Filipinos before, wao! I like those islanders, they have all those qualities and more, for example, they have some of the most beautiful women God ever created-They like and respect their women so much that they feel very uncomfortable whenever a man is leading them, the current President is Mrs. Aroyo, and Aroyo is a word that strikes a fond code with us as a community in Northern Uganda, we name our ladies Aroyo, Aloyo,Arobo, Apoto, Atoro, Abolo, Akello,etc. So you can see that the A vowel ending with an O vowel makes me almost claim the Current President,as our own tribeswoman! This and many others, makes the Filipino my darling friends! I wish it could be the country I visit at least before i die!

Tuned in to the local pop radio station recently? I remember this being discussed on air last week, and I remember that when asked, "What makes you proud as a Filipino," most of the respondents answered: Our capacity to smile in the face of hardships. Not always something to be proud of, but most of the time, optimism gets you in a good position to achieve.
