What I Like About Us Filipinos..
« on: October 02, 2009, 05:09:58 AM »
We are very resilient..

While watching the heartbreaking news about Manila's fate yesterday, I can't help but notice our countrymen's smiles and waves to the camera.. And when one is being interviewed, people at the background can't help but wave and cheer to the camera... (especially those lining up to claim their share of the donations..)

What is that?! It somehow lifted my heavy heart.

The good thing about us is that we laugh our problems off. We have so much faith in God..

Bisag nasunog na ang whole barangay, or galutaw ang mga gamit. smile / katawa gahapon..
A man was interviewed on how he sleeps and where he urinates or put his body's waste despite the chest-deep water in his barangay for 3 days already,, he laughingly answered "linalagay sa plastic tapos tinatapon nalang namin sa ilog sir, pero minsan lumulutang..sa pagtolug, naka upo lang.." and his neighbors cheered.. LOL


grabe kaayu ta ka bugal bugalon..we don't tend to indulge and stay on being depressed.

US GIs wonder Filipinos still smiling
« Reply #4 on: October 03, 2009, 07:40:26 PM »
MANILA, Philippines – A team of American soldiers got a first-hand look at the devastation wrought by tropical storm “Ondoy” – and ended up wondering how Filipinos could still smile and give them “high-fives” amid a terrible calamity.

At least 27 members of the 3rd US Marine Expeditionary Force, composed of doctors, nurses, medical aides and a chaplain, the other day conducted a medical and dental mission at Nangka Elementary School, which sheltered thousands displaced by the massive floods in Marikina City.

“We’ve seen things here [in terms of the destruction] that we haven’t seen before. This is really the least we can do. We wish we could stay longer,” said Lt. Commander Todd Endicott, the mission’s leader.

Endicott also shared one interesting observation: “We all wonder how
[Filipinos] keep smiling through all this.”

“Americans probably wouldn’t handle this as well. Here, people are smiling, saying ‘Hi’ to us, giving us high-fives.
This is a pretty miserable situation, how people keep smiling, I don’t know. It’s probably a testament to the culture,” Endicott said.

Lieutenant Colonel Romeo Brawner Jr., AFP spokesman, said the US mission was the first in a series that the group would conduct in the next few days in Eastern Metro Manila, one of the areas hit hardest by storm.
