I'm proud to be a filipino.

Habang nabasa ko itong artikulo na ito
medyo natuwa ako dahilsa ibang kaugalian ng mga pilipin kagaya ng Filipinos ask for 'Colgate' instead of toothpaste. Nakarelate ako sa mga ibang katangian. Ang Pinaka gusto kong katanigan dyan ay yung Bbayanihan dahil ang mga pilipino na sdyang tumutulong sa may pangangailangan . Gusto ko rin yung pagmamano at Po at Opo dahil ito ay ang ating nakaugalian na sabihin sa matanda at gawin ngayon henrasyon may mga kabataan na ang hindi nagmamano at hindi ng Po at Opo at Binabastos pa nila ang mga matatanda .Kailngan gamitin natin ito dahil ito ang paggalang sa kanila. :)Gusto ko rin yung may matinding pananlig sila sa Diyos .:)

Noong Nabasa ko itong artikulo na ito .
Medyo natuwa ako dun sa ibang kaugalian ng mga pilipino kagaya ng kapag bumibili ang mga pilipino ng tootpaste imbes na toothpase colgate ang kanilang sinasabi . Nakakrelate din yung ibang kaugalian :). MAy mga nagustuhan akong KAugalian ng mga pilipino katulad ng bayanihan dahil sadyang matulungin ang mga pilipino kapag may nangangailangan , Gusto ko in yung pag mano , po at opo sa matatanda dahil ito na ang nasanayan nating gamitin. Ngayong kaslakuyan na henerasyon may mga kabataan na binabastos sa ang matatanda imbers na mag mano, Po at Opo nag Oo n lng o dikaya Dinadaanan lang ang kanilang magulang o lolo't lola kapag dumating. Gusto ko rin yung may matibay na pananampalatay at pananalig sa Diyos :).

natawa ako kasi ganun na ganun nga yung mga kaugalian ng karamihan sa ating mga pilipino so maging proud tayo dito maging proud tayo sa pagiging pilipino natin :)

Mabuhay ang mga Pilipino!

Itong artikulong ito ay nagpapakita lang na ang mga pilipino ay masiyahin sa gitna na problema, ito rin ay nagpapakita ng kagandahang asal, pagkamaka-Diyos at pagkakawang gawa ng mga Pilipino. Sa gitna ng isang bansa, ang mga Pilipino ay nagkakaisa at nag tutulungan sa pamamagitan ng pagbabayanihan at pagdadamayan. Masarap maging Pilipino wika nga, ngunit mas masarap maging isang pilipino kung tayo ay makikiisa at makakakitaan ng pagmamahal,may pag-asa at may pananampalataya tungo sa ikauunlad ng bansang Pilipinas.
