We actually have this saying "tawanan mo ang yong problema" (laugh at your problem)... So dear filipino's let us never forget to put a smile no matter what happen

It's amazing how we Filipinos could still put a smile in our face even when faced with problems. I think it's innate in us to be like that, so as to lighten our loads.

Hi igatiful_badass! Maybe this is one of the good traits of us, Filipinos. We seem to be a very happy and positive people that whatever comes into our life, we will just smile into it. This trait are highly recognizable in TV reporting where some people devastated by the typhoon will even pose and wave their hands in front of the TV camera. I believe this is one reason why Filipino people survived, we look at life in a very positive way. Have a nice day!

Laughing at our problem shows a strong sense of optimism but others believe it's a sense of getting out reality by smiling and thinking of things that makes us happy. I tried to smile every day to keep myself from getting old that much. but we should also do something like solving it too while smiling. maybe i should smile because am happy that we have a home that doesn't reach the floods.

i agree. we Filipinos laugh at our problems like they are nothing at all. That is a good trait, but of course, we do need to also be serious about these things happening to us.
