Present! You forgot Michael V. who was recently in Reader's Digest. And APPL, Batista, Rob Schneider... quite a list I guess. Proud to be Pinoy but I wish we'd come up with something a little bit more useful to be famous for. Like curing AIDS for example. Or assassinating the world's first evil presidential hobbit (I hope I didn't offend anyone, but you know who I mean).

Thank you for thresponse and yes i know what you mean we all well known for music and entertainment well i guess there is one guy that would stand out who is a filipino inventor,the one who created the flourecent bulb from a long time before but in that time i think the goverment didnt focus on things like that because he is not recognized in the philippinies he was first recognized in other country before they recognized him.

The government lacks in supporting our inventors, researchers and scientists which is pretty sad given that any product they come up with will be beneficial in our countries progress. There should be more focus given to R&D if we ever hope to compete in the world market. We're so behind.
