    • hindi po ba kahit minsan, KAHIT MINSAN LANG, yung magagandang katotohanan naman ang ibahagi niyo sa iba. You know why this country is not improving? Because everyone is made to believe that there is no hope already for this country to change for the better. Even in CNN, halos lahat ng Fini-feature dun ay ang kapangitan ng Pilipinas, yun na lang ba ang meron tayo? Please kung sino po kayo, hindi sa pang babastos, pero, magkaroon ka naman ng pagmamahal. I know we have to learn our bad habits for us to improve, but don’t do it at the expense of labeling our whole identity with those bad habits. Kung may heart ka talaga for this country, you should have encouraged us Filipinos to change for the better, hindi yung ganito, ipalandakan ang kapangitan nito sa iba. This is wriiten in ink, have you really thought twice before you posted this? Other countries may see this, and not everything that is in here is true, but still you posted it and even entitling it ” 50 FACTS ABOUT THE PHILIPPINES” “FACTS” pa talaga..

    • ShAt Up!! Ganyan ang Pilipino! Kaya ganito PaRIn tayo dahil sa mga taong katulad mo! reklamo ng reklamo wala namang ginagawa! Speak for yourself!! KAHIT ANONG GAWIN MO U WILL NEVER BE LIKE BOB ONG kahit gaano mo IPAGSAKSAKAN SA AMIN ANG MGA PAGKAKAMALI NAMIN YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO CHANGE ANYONE beCOZ YOU DO NOT HAVE THE HEART to HEAR and UNDERSTAND! dahil sa mga taong katulad mo na imbes tumulong, feeling mr/ms greatness na kasi NAKAKAPUNA NG PAGKAKAMALI!!

      ASHAMED TO BE PINOY?? LIPAT! tutal may pera ka naman siguro para MAGKAROON NG POSISYON na sabihin yan diba? Alam mo kahit saang lugar ka isaksak you will always see the negative side, o di kaya kung walang negative, arrogante ang lagay mo. TRY TO COMPROMISE DIN KAYA NOH?!

  1. grabe..ganyan nlang ba ang tingin mo sa Pilipinas?
    walang natutuwa at walang naaaliw sa mga sinasabi
    SIGURO KAGAYA NG MGA TAONG KATULAD MO
    may tagalog pa talaga na nakasulat diyan ahhh!
    ANUNG KARAPATAN MO NA GAMITIN ANG SALITANG TAGALOG?
    naku kung kilala ka lang ng buong tao…subukan mong pumunta dito sa Pinas..tignan natin kung may isa bang tao na titingin sayo! ang bagay na tawag sayo: TAONG PA-EPAL…hoy tumigil ka na!!!

  2. reality checklang siguro, meant man nung sumulat neto o hindi, na makainsulto o hindi, tignan natin kung nangyayari nga,
    kung masyado kang apektado, alam mo siguro kung bakit. pero kung sa tingin mo e hindi naman talaga sya “Fact” tama lang din na banatan mo siya, but try to make your own side “more factual”
    ito lang masasabi ko kung meron lang sana tayong tatay na katulad ni singapore president Lee Kuan Yew o ni korean president Park Jeong-hee na magaling dumisiplina sa mga anak nila habang todo kayod sa industriya at gawa ng gawa ng sandamakmak na mga inprastraktura, mas mataas siguro pa rin ang dignidad at respeto ng isang Pilipino sa kapwa nya Pilipino

  3. THIS MAN SPEAKS THE TRUTH, tama ang lahat ng nasa listahan na yan. Good thing nlng I come from a gated community, fcking squatters.

  4. totoo naman, most of us, hindi aamin, at nagagalit pa. Ito naman ang totoo, nakakarelieve kahit paano post mo. At least meron palang concerned. Kasi lahat naman tanggap na nila, hindi nga nila alam na ganito nga eh. Kaya walang solusyon. Kasi hindi man lang alam kung ano problema. Dapat masuklam tayo sa problema na to. Kasi nakakainis na maging Pilipino at maging nasa Pilipinas. Kahit pumunta nga ako sa ibang bansa, kabuntot ko pa rin ang identity na ito

  5. It is a sad parody i guess. Coming from a fellow makes this more offensive. I cant even make a sane reaction anymore after this one. An ultimate insult for the general and even much hurtful for someone like me who, for all the hardwork and goodworks i tried to do, still there are people who would try to deeply malign , bash, abuse and humiliate US. This is the highest form of insults to name the Filipino. Never to be taken destructively, but then again i am deeply deeply hurt. I would not throw you back anything as hurting as this one. i would be praying for you. A percentage of our population might be highlighted as such but no other nationality may ever brand, name themselves such those insults. This could be a high time for such attention when many of my fellow Filipinos give back to the mother country by way of sending back dollars or accolades . Every singular act of bring back any lost dignity and reputation, must be given reproach. Your list is the last thing we expect.. not one coming from you.

  6. actually , i don’t find this funny . as a FILIPINO CITIZEN , don’t you dare underestimate our country . racist much ? the problem with you RACISTS , is that you only look at the bad side of anything and everything . try to look on the good side and try to weigh things to which is better . wherever you’re from , i’m sure that country of yours is worse . the people living in your country has also the same UGLY personality as yours . that’s why you try to underestimate PHILIPPINES because you can’t accept the fact that PHILIPPINES is a wonderful country filled with people who are hospitable , kind , friendly etc .

  7. 0. Where everyone wants to leave the country! – This is not true.

    You should learn how to travel and be with the right group of people. Your perspective was entertaining but you failed as a citizen. :))

  8. thats why we called ourselves Filipinos and thats makes us unique, whatever it is ok lang..there is an article in UAE that say, if all the filipino will going to strike and stop to work just only for one day all over the world, the whole world will know us.in every company and office in this world there is one guy who rely sa isang pinoy..

  9. I am not sure if this is true. In fact it is quite racist. I am a non Filippino resident and while there is a small amount of thruth I guess the same could be applied to any country. It it was meant to be funny think you need to get another job becasue you will never be a comedian. However I guess number 2 is close to the truth.

    • fu*kin cunt… how can u be this rude! show your picture and i will kick you out Philippines myself.. DOUCHEBAG!

      • sorry princess.. this message is not for u… i just cannot use the reply button below lol.. [>_<] was too freaked out and wanted to slap the one who made this post badly….

  10. unang una. 51 points to. bakit mo naman isasama ang 0?? wtf.
    pangalwa. eh ano kung nawawala na ang pagsasalita ng ingles at espanyol? fluent ka don? oo bastardized na minsan ang tagalog pero ganon talaga nangyayari kung di pa patay anf lenggwahe.
    pangatlo. oo, sige. pagbigyan natin. valid yung ibang points, pero yung iba di ko alam kung seryoso ka o nagloloko ka.
    at huli, kung di ka kuntento sa katotohanan edi baguhin mo. either sumama ka sa kolektibong pagbabago o simulan mo sa sarili mo.

    nakakahiya ka mag-blog eh.
    pilipino ka pero nilulubog mo pilipino.
    bobo mo pa magbilang.

    dun sa mga nag-agree point blank. mga tanga kayo.
    tsk.
    0-50 ay 51 points,. di talaga ko makaget-over eh.

    • sige, sabihin na nating hindi siya marunong magbilang. ibig sabihin ba nuon na hindi totoo ang mga punto nya? walang koneskyon ang kanyang abilidad sa pagbibilang sa katotohanan (o walang katotohanan) ng kanyang sinabi. Kung totoo ang sinabi niya, dapat nating iangat ang ating mga kababayan sa pamamagitan ng mabuting instruksyon, at ipaalala sakanila ang storya ng ating bayan, kung paano tayo naging kung sino tayo ngayon. ipaalala natin sa mga kababayan natin ang mga pagkamatuwid na ugali na ipinakita saatin ng ating mga bayani, katulad ni Rizal.

      Kung walang kabuluhan ang mga sinabi niya, hindi natin maipapakita sa kanya ang mga maling punto sa pamamagitan ng insulto, tulad ng pag-gamit ng “tanga kayo!” maaaring sabihin niya na tanga ka rin, pero, sabihin na nating tanga nga siya at ang mga nag-agree sakanya, walang koneksyon ito sa mga punto niya! sabhin natin na ako ay isang tangang tao, ngayon, sinabi ko na 1+1 = 2. tama parin ang sinabi ko subalit na tanga ako!

  11. Be careful to use the words “all” and “every”, because not all Filipinos are like that. For example, not “all” 13-year-olds are alcoholic. Probably you live in a place where these points are reality to you, but as a Filipino staying in the Philippines, they are not true.

  12. I must admit, some of these are definitely true. I myself is a Filipino but I’am, and never will, be ashamed of that. For those who have violent reactions on this blog, I understand why such harsh words are being said. And it’s good to know that it shows there are still people who’s willing to make a stand for this race. However, as we all know, reason why there are such reactions is because of the fact that majority of what was mentioned, are sadly true. For those who agree with the blogger with neutral reactions only means that they have accepted this fact, and probably, for some, thinks that this is something that we can’t get away with. And the sad thing about this? Since that’s their perspective, and I’m not saying in general, it just means that they won’t do anything to make a change. We Filipinos are very defensive when we hear ‘not-good-or-not-so-good’ things about us. And worse, though we ‘defend’ ourselves by responding with this comments, opinions, or reactions, we actually don’t do anything to change this effin’ system. =( Now, don’t me wrong. Everyone is entitled to have their own opinion. Just like you, I’m giving mine.

  13. This is all true, sad to say. Is why I’ve given up on the Philippines and am planning to fly abroad at first chance. Walang pag-asa ang Pilipinas… I’m saying it and I’m an Isko! What the heck!

  14. We can’t blame others for their opinion,we should accept the fact as Filipino.We shouldn’t act guilty for it doesn’t our fault ..
    Whats wrong there is, how governments govern their people??
    and where is “LAW” ?
    No wonder why its happening in our country because of our good model in (corruptions)..

  15. Alam ko totoo iba dito Pero Hindi mo naman Siguro dapat I broadcast a buong Mundo! Dahil Diyan tourism Ng ba sa natin bababa at ikaw Ang masisisi

  16. How about 5 Facts About Yourself? Will you write this way too?

    Yes, this is a reality-check act but let me ask you “What did you do for the country if you’re a Filipino or if not, how did you know all of those you listed?”

  18. 50 facts? Srsly? Looks like someone doesn’t know how to count.
    HAHA. Sige lang kung gusto mo umalis, Alis lang! XD LOL. Mas matutuwa pa kami =))
    Panindigan mo yung Post mo ah. Kahit na ganito ang Pilipinas (Di naman kasi lahat!) natuto ko na din tong mahalin sa likod ng mga imperfections nitooo. XD

    It’s just a matter of loving your own country kahit ganito sya. XD Sadyang may iba lang talaga (na tulad mo) yung puro na lang kamalian ang nakikita sa bansang kahit papaano may kagandahan din naman :))

  19. Who the heck did this? What if your country was Philippines? What IF I KICK YOUR BUTT? What will happen? MAYBE, you’re a disgrace in your country that’s why you’re doing this? OH! REMOVE THE MAYBE. YOU’RE A DISGRACE, MEN. IDIOTIC. NOTHIN’ TO DO WITH HIS LIFE. YOUR COUNTRY’S JUST A SEA, PHILIPPINES IS OCEAN. STUPID

  20. wow look?! A blogger who wrote 50 things about Phil and some things are not even real? seriously? do you really know what you’re talking about? or you just wrote it, without even studying our country? LOOOL! get a life dude. you surely don’t know anything about Phil. Douchebag! :))))

  21. not all entries here are accurate… like the number 34. “all 13-year-olds are alcoholic.” Nah! I’ve got a lot of 13-year-old students who aren’t alcoholic.. you said “all” right? so how is this true? try to think and check these things you consider “facts” before you share it to public.

    spare your mouth from angry arrows or you’ll be hit and you’ll regret much… tight hugs until you choked out. 😛

  22. yes, all of these are true. . but these are merely just a pinch of what the Philippines has to offer to you in terms of good things. And the author of this fu*king article is not considered a Filipino. Hes a big disgrace to this beautiful race. And an idiot, a fool, a motherfu*ker, and an ugly horse type face.

  23. yes, all of these are true. . but these are merely just a pinch of what the Philippines has to offer to you in terms of good things. And the author of this fu*king article is not considered a Filipino. Hes a big disgrace to this beautiful race. And an idiot, a fool, a motherfu*ker, and an ugly horse type face. (any more adjectives to describe this guy? Add up guys)

  24. Wow ha!Grabe…Kung pilipino ka man.. Tanong ko lang nagawa mo ba ng maganda ang role mo bilang pilipino?

    Yung iba naman totoo pero yung iba Sobra na…

    Saka hindi naman lahat ng pilipino ganyan ah? Saka kung lahat ng tao ay pilipino kasama ka na dun!!

  25. LOL! This is really funny cause everything on it is true! I’m an ordinary, Manilenyo, middle-class Filipino…and for me..these are real views about the lives of most people in the Philippines… Those who commented that these things aren’t real or that it’s racist probably are from the “above middle-class.” I myself has the same opinion about the Filipinos but I just smiled because it’s not really shameful, it’s what makes us different..It’s not sad…it’s enlightening..It’s not racist…it’s the truth… I accepted it cause no country is perfect..Everyone has their own funny fact about their country…and this is ours…. though the only bad thing (which might also be the cause of the OA bad comments) is that the title is too concrete…it says 50 FACTS…it’s like these are the only ones… we do have lots of good facts about Filipinos “you know” (Paquiao 2011 hihi) therefore I suggest that the title shouldn’t be what is…Smile my comrades! Don’t be such a PIKON! hehe

  26. Siguro sinasabi ng iba na totoo ito at wala tayong magagawa. OO yung iba totoo. Pero Pilipino rin kayo diba? WOW? Proud pa na ganan yung bansa mo. At isa pa MAY NAGAWA KA NA BA PARA MAAYOS YUNG BANSANG NAGBIBIGAY SAYO NG KAILANGAN MO PARA MABUHAY?

    • Kapag hindi talaga kritikal magisip ang tao, ang bilis mapikon at magreact sa mga ganitong bagay. Harsh realities talaga to sa ating bansa. Nagagalit tayo hindi dahil sa ito’y mga maling paratang, kundi sapol tayo, ika nga straight to the heart at bumalik balik pa. Sige nga sabihin ninyo na hindi kayo napa-sang ayon sa at least isang item dyan (ako, yung sa item#17 lang talaga di sang ayon :P) . Siguro dun sa salitang “…FACTS…” tayo subconsciously na-OFF. Pero kung iisipin natin, dahil sa paulit ulit ang mga ganitong bagay satin (sa ating bansa) unti unti nating inaccept(o nagbulagbulagan/wapakels tayo) hanggang naging GENERAL TRUTH ang mga ito sa ating bansa. At saka tayo nagreact ng ganito when someone such as this blogger presented to us his/her opinion about these “FACTS”. Eh ano nangyari after niyo magreact? Did you suddenly have a change of heart? Naging MAKABAYAN ka na ba? Aba dapat lang, do something about it. Wag yung hanggang react ka lang, showing your pagiging “MAKABAYAN” at pagiging “FILIPINO” sa comment lang. Ika nga sa pinagaaralan namin na subject about kay rizal, “One is not born a Filipino…” dapat gumawa ka nang bagay na ikabubuti sa bayan para hirangin kang isang FILIPINO (pero wala tayo magagawa yan na citizenship natin na nakalagay sa birth cert natin eh, di na natin need mageffort patunayan sarili natin)…………………

      Marami pa sana ako sasabihin kaso tintamad na ako. Kaya kayo wag lang puro salita, hala sige, magpakaMAKABAYAN na kayo nang totoo while me, after posting this comment, will carry on with my hipocrite, batugan and apathetic life.

      P.S.
      Isipin niyo, kritikal magisip at hindi bulag ang blogger na to dahil nakapagbigay siya nang mga pangit na FACTS about sa bayan natin. And that is up to us para mabago ang mga facts na to, unless kung wapakels ka eh di sige, wag pilitin ang ayaw 😛

      P.P.S.
      KUDOS to the blogger… we see you rollin’, they hatin’ but not me.

  27. Yes those statements are most likely true. But do we need to disclose such socially degrading facts to the public especially to the “inter”net? Are we happy describing ourselves in such pessimistic lines? We are indeed Filipinos. If we continue doing this, even when the poorest nation in earth will rise, we are still in rags claiming ourselves in those statements and blaming each other especially the government. Our progress lies not on the gov’t itself but depends on the whole country. Shame on us.

  28. Siguro totoo naman ang iba dyan… hinda lang natin napapasin…. PERO…… hindi ako sumasangayon sa # 0… Hindi naman lahat nang tao umaalis ng Pilipinas… ang mga turista nga ay tumitira pa dito

  29. hoii hindi naman
    ALL 13 year old are alcoholic nohh !!!

    50 LANG ANG MA PIPINTAS MO MERON AKONG MORE THAN 100 FACTS NA MAGANDA ANG PINAS!!

  30. you’re making yourself truly a “SHIT EXAMPLE” but it’s for fun only – good. the problem here since most of these’ not true, what if INTRN’L READERS find this page and dreaming/planned to go to the PHILIPPINES – you’re FUCK!!!!! you’re pushing/unwelcome money income out of our country…you need to study harder on economics, businesses and maybe medical to make more progress for the country…U JERK!!!!!!

  31. Tame naman lahat ng sinabi nya… bakit my mga impokrito jan na kunwaring concern? nag post sya ng ganito para ilahad ang katotohanan ndi ung nananahimik ka na lang kahit mali na ang nangyayari! TAKE THIS AS A POSITIVE CRITICISM!!! Para umunlad naman ang pilipinas! Tapusin na nating mga pilipino ang masyadong mapagtanggol sa mali (KUNSINTIDOR).

    • What a craphole of a country you funny little people come from. And stop it with all the ooga booga talk. Nobody understands you in America except for your fellow janitors.

      • it’s not our fault that you don’t understand or talk in Tagalog. we, Filipinos, are very smart, and independent.
        I think it is very ironic that SOME of the people in America or in any country talks about bullying and ways on how to stop racism, but continuous to do them instead. tsk tsk 😒😒😒

    • His way on criticizing is not good. Yeah you guys can take it as positive criticism but he should have written it on the nicer way. And I guess your fellow Filipinos doesn’t fight for the wrong thing but they just want this guy who wrote this blog to be nice. Can you get what they mean and I mean?

  32. Hindi po iyan totoo, lahat po ng mga nasa listahan nyo ay masasama. ang mga nakalimutan nyo pa po ay ang mga magagandang mga values ng mga pinoy….

  33. I know that everyone has a right to their own opinions, but this covers everyone, which I think is wrong.. most of the children in the philippines are still trying their BEST to achieve what they want, and what they dream of. for #0 most people leave the philippines only because they want to earn money for their families, so that they will have better futures.. for #41 we should be proud that we can speak Tagalog, and is there anything wrong if we only speak Tagalog and not English, it is our language after all.

    most of the pointers or facts are true, but they insult a lot of people, specially Filipinos.

    p.s
    to those racist people out there insulting philippines or any country and nation you should be ashamed of yourselves. you have no right to bully, be racist, or to insult any nation. it is not your opinion it is stepping on a persons nationality.

  34. Siguro oo nga totoo ung mga sinulat niya dito sa blog na to. Pero sana naman tinake niya ung mga sinulat niya as positive. E super negative yung dating ee. Nilalait niya ung kapwa niya Pilipino e baka nga Gawain niya din yang mga pinagsusulat niya ee. dba? Ang mahirap sa ibang Pilipino ee nagagalit sa sarili niyang lahi. E bakit kaya hindi nila I-try iaangat ung sarili nating lahi para naman maipagmalaki nila. Ang sarap kayang sabihin na PILIPINO AKO even though I’m not a Filipino I am still Filipino 100% at heart and mind. One of the best people ang mga Pilipino na nakilala ko. Sana matutunan ng taong sumulat nito kung pano mahalin ang sarili niyang lahi kasi for sure kung may ibang lahi na makakabasa nito pagtatawanan lang siya at sasabihing kawawa naman tong taong to.This blog should be erased. Ang bad WORST FILIPINO EVER tong nagsulat nito.

    P.s-I’m not a pure Filipino I just grew up and raised here. I know that Filipinos are great people. Maybe not all but all I can say they are the best no matter what happen they will still accept you. Btw, I’m Chinese. Despite of what’s happening between my country and your country guys and what my fellow Chinese did to Filipinos in HK (the throwing of bottles issue, discrimination) you guys still accept us Chinese here, you never discriminated us but instead you hugged us and let us stay here. Thank you for that ((:

  35. For the Butthurt peeps out there, this is obviously a SATIRE. Most written here are true but was written in a satiric manner. Get over yourselves!

  36. Firstly I want to say that, I strongely disaggree in some of the facts you wrote,wait a minute its not even facts , its just your stupid opinion…. And how dare u say that 13 years old in the Philippines are alcoholic ….Who are you to judge them , you are no one!!! I dont live in philippines anymore but I sure know that Philippines is THE most amazing , awesome country I’ve lived…Im sure that a lot of people( not filipinos ) finds Philippines like that too!!!! You are disgrace to the filipinos … Secondly , im sure a lot of filipinos went to abroad cause its really hard to find money there but u actually have no right to judge them , they worked really hard and there taking a lot of risk , like not seeing your families for about 4-6 years, being alone everyday so its really tough… Can u imagine that stupid pee-brain? Do u know the old sayin “Think before you act”? well I think u dont…. If your puttin a bad smells in my country —-Philippines then cursed u… Philippines is growing a lot of attention all over the world and bit by bit its becoming famous and soon it will known to be one of the awesome county in the whole wide world!!!! and u cannot ruin that by just puttin your silly stupid opinion in Google and making it sound real …. well
    Lastly , I want to say good luck in the future , well if u have one

  37. it is really saddening when you realize that what makes our country rotten is because of the people who instead of giving away positive outlook prefers to makes a blog and GLOAT, (and I’m really giving an emphasis to the “GLOAT”)how our country became what it is today. there are so many good things that we can say, why do you have to say those hurtful words? aren’t you a Filipino too?i don’t know what came in to you to make you do this blog but if you really have nothing good to say just SHUT YOUR TRAP!

  38. Ung nagsulat nito dapat lumayas na sa PILIPINAS wala syang kuwenta , dapat tinutulungan niyang pangandahin ang imahe ng PILIPINAS hindi ung binababa pa ……masyado

  39. The Philippines is a truly beautiful country. It is blessed with many natural resources and rich islands. Even the Filipino people are very friendly and courteous. They treat everyone with respect. They also welcome visitors and guests warmly. If you are a real Filipino, instead of showing others the negative facts of your own country, you should be PROUD of it. Don’t waste your time writing useless facts about the Philippines, instead, be the key to open our minds and hearts about what’s happening in our country. Or for short, start the CHANGE! 🙂

  40. Yes, “SOME” are true. Pero kailangan pa bang ipaglandakan? Pilipino ka, sana naman kaya mong tignan yung positive side ng Pilipinas, hindi yung puro pagpintas ang alam mo. Sana lang talaga hindi Pilipino ang mga magulang mo, malaki kang kahihiyan pag nagkataon.

  41. Coloring books are usually employed by children, though coloring books for
    adults are also available. Larger organizations generally stricter, expressly written
    rules on etiquette. If it does not feel completely secure,
    use bobby pins to add it to hair.

  42. remember when you will say bad things to others don’t say nothing at all. For those who are reading this blog better to go other more valuable blogs . because this is a very nonsense blog. Get life and God bless!

  43. I like how almost all of these are true even after SIX years. Where is the progress? Matuwid na daan? Top fucking kek

  44. grabe nakakahiya kayong mga Pilipino kayo!! ang Pilipinong hindi marunong magmahal sa sariling wika ay daig pa ang mabahong isda.. kung kayo puro negative lang nakikita niyo.. BAKIT HINDI NALANG KAYO GUMAWA NG PARAAN PARA GUMANDA ANG PILIPINAS?? kelan pa hindi nagbayad ng tax ang mga nakatira sa squatter?? lahat ng binibili nila may tax yun!!… ang hindi ko lang maintindihan eh bakit kelangan gumawa ng listahan tungkol sa pangit sa Pilipinas at sinulat pa sa Ingles!!! ano ibig sabihin nito gusto niyo ipamukha sa buong mundo ang lahat ng hindi maganda sa Pilipinas?? sa tingin niyo nakakatulong kayo sa pag unlad ng Pilipinas sa ginagawang niyong yan?? Sino pa ba ang magmamahal sa Pilipinas kundi mga Pilipino rin… anong klaseng mensahe ang gusto mong sabihin sa mga batang Pinoy?? sa mga susunod na henerasyon pag nabasa nila to???

  45. Hi there, I discovered your site by means of Google while searching for a comparable subject, your website
    got here up, it appears good. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

    Hello there, simply changed into aware of your blog via Google, and
    found that it is really informative. I am going to watch out for brussels.
    I’ll be grateful when you proceed this in future.
    Lots of other folks will probably be benefited out of your
    writing. Cheers!

  46. Hate you, you liar. If u don’t really know about the Philippines you have better to keep your mouth quiet (SHUT)! ‘Cause I bet you have never been there before

  48. so what can this post do to improve the country but to put it to shame in front of others and portray how Filipinos themselves lost hope and are not loyal to their country

  49. Para kay Rockmanx, masasabi kong may katotohanan ang inilathala mo sa iyong blog. Masakit man sa damdamin pero may punto ka roon. Ngunit, sa kabila ng katotohanan na ito, bakit mo ito nailathala?

    Nauunawaan ko rin ang mga nais iparating ng mga nagpahayag ng kanilang saloobin sa iyong blog. Pero, ganito ba ang nais nating ipakita o ipabasa sa ating kapwa, kabataan, maging sa mga bata? Na maging sa blog, imbes, na makatulong, ay nagbabangayan. Sabi ko nga, maging ako, nasaktan sa mga sinabi, hindi lang bilang isang Pilipino kundi maging isang tao o mamamayan na isinilang sa bansa na ito. Lumaki akong nakikita, namamalas, at nasisilayan ang ating bansa araw-araw ngunit ang itinatanong ko lang naman sa aking sarili: ANO BANG MAGAGAWA KO UPANG MABAGO KO ANG BANSA UPANG MAGING ISANG MAAYOS AT MABUTING BANSA?

    Kahit munti, alam kong mayroon. Itong blog mo ay nagbukas ng aking isipan na may mga Pilipino palang ganito ang tingin sa ating bansa. Kung Pilipino ka man, ano ba ang tingin mo sa ating bansa? Sa iyong kapwa Pilipino? Sa kabila ng nakikita ko, kahit sa maliit kong paraan, ninanais ko pa ring tingnan at igalang ang bansang biniyayaan ng kasarinlan ng mga Pilipino noon.

    May mga dayuhang kaibigan ako na sobrang hinahangaan ko dahil sa kanilang natatanging pagpapamalas ng kanilang pagkamakabayan sa kanilang paraan kahit sa pamamagitan ng pagkukuwento. Mula sa kanila, napagtanto ko ang tunay na kahalagahan ng pagiging makabayan kahit sa maliit na paraan.

  50. THESE ARE NOT FACTS BUT ARE OPINIONS AND A SAD THING TO CALL AS A JOKE BY SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE PHILIPPINES, ITS HISTORY, CULTURE AND TRADITIONS, AND THE PEOPLE ITSELF. THIS IS MADE BY AN IMMATURE AND AN UNPROFESSIONAL INDIVIDUAL WHO MOST LIKELY DON’T HAVE A GOOD EDUCATION AND/OR A GOOD UPBRINGING.

  51. Ibig sabihin mo ba eh nakakahiya kami??? FYI if you are a Filipino (REAL) hindi mo ikahihiya yan… Bakit? dahil kahit imayin mo man yang buto’t balat moy Filipino ka pa rin. Shame on YOU!!! Before you seek others first seek your self!!!

    Kakahiya ka!!! Hindi lang isa kund napakang raming makababasa nito… Uwi!!!
