Here's strong words from Ms Presious Lara.. "Mabuhay! representing the democratic and freedom loving people of the pearl of the orient, I am Precious LARA QUIGAMAN,from the beautiful country Of THE PHILIPPINES" The question: "what do you say to the people of the world who have typecasted Filipinos as nannies?" The Answer: "I take no offense on being type casted as a nanny.But i do take offense that the educated people of the world have somehow denigrated the true sense and meaning of what a nanny is. Let me tell you what she is. She is someone who gives more than she takes.She is someone you trust to look after the very people most precious to you - your child, the elderly, yourself. She is the one who has made a living out of caring and loving other people. so to those who have type casted us as nannies, thank you. It is a testament to the loving and caring culture of the Filipino people. And for that, i am forever proud and grateful of my roots and culture." Wow!! God Bless the Philippines!

[b]Nice answer. She got it right. I'm proud of her. I'm proud of our heritage. our culture and our country. That's true our women range from nannies, caregiver, housemaids and etc. But we represent a very loving nature. Long way to go Philippines. [/b]
