hey mylotters. [em] thumbup [em/] good day!Ü I have been here for a week now and i have been encountering friends from different parts of the world. I'm curious what it's like from where you live! could you share some advantage and disadvantage of your country? And how bout adding up some "national" stuff to your responses. That would be great! thanks and hope you enjoyed this discussion.ÜAnd for the Filipinos, you could add something besides the thing i wrote.Ü In the Philippines, WE have so many beautiful places here like BORACAY, PUERTO GALERA, BAGUIO, TAGAYTAY, PALAWAN, BOHOL, etc. So here are the National Symbols: National anthem: "Lupang Hinirang" National Bird:"Maya" or the Philippine Monkey-Eating Eagle (it kinda confuses me) National flower: Sampaguita. National Tree: Narra National Leaf: Fan Palm or "Anahaw" National Fruit: Mango National Animal: Carabao National Fish: Milkfish or "Bangus" National Dance: "Tinikling" National Dish: "Lechon" or Roasted pig and last but not the least our national motto: For the Love of God, People, Nature and Country!Ü Hope too learn from your countries too! ;)

Thanks dpk!Ü I think India is a nice country. Our President has the same gender.Ü As for our dialect, i've researched that we have 170 languages here but only two are considered to be the major language. The Filipinos are also known to be kind and hospitable to others.Ü
