My Land of Origin, My Country, the PHILIPPINES
Have you heard of the the country named as “The pearl of the East”? Well, that so called country is my country, the PHILIPPINES. I cannot describe it better than the video above, and there is no better way how i can show you what it is like to be there.
The Philippines is consisted of 7,101 islands and every island is different form each other in many ways, from the sceneries, way of life, culture, delicacies and people, to the dialects spoken (so you better prepare your english!). I may say Philippines has many surprises exceeding one’s expectations.
Philippines is in the South East Asia, mind you, we are the only Christian country in the whole of South East Asia! In the middle of Muslim and Buddist countries.
Many from the West doesn’t know Philippines, they thought that since it is a third world country, it has nothing to offer, but it’s the other way around and in fact, it has almost everything to offer. Once I was asked, “Do you wear shoes in where you came from?” I can never forget that. It was somehow insulting, but I just thought that the lady who asked me that question indeed has no idea about the country.
So, if ever you’re going to have a holiday or vacation in South East Asia, try my country. I promise, it has a lot to offer.
