What is one thing Pinoys are known for?
« on: November 03, 2007, 05:23:00 PM »
Like China is known for chinese food,  Japan for technology & electronics, Thailand for tourism, Switzerland for watches, etc.  What the Philipines known for?  When someone asked me this question I struggle to answer because there's a lot going on and I cannot choose.  ;D ;D ;D

What do you think? Only one thing...

(Unfortunately) Imelda Marcos and her shoe collection? at least that's what most people ask me about.

Filipino hospitality :)
Beginnings are usually scary and endings are usually sad, but it's everything in between that makes it all worth living.

During the '70s:

1. Most progressive and developed South East Asian country.
2. Number one exporter ASEAN of rice, capiz and shell by-products, hemp, coco oil, fish and shellfish, rubber, nickel, gold.


Late '80's to the present:

Number one exporter of
1. Domestic Helpers
2. Mail order brides
3. Nurses


Other things the Philippines is known for:

4. Beautiful secluded beaches
5. Great place for scuba diving
6. Volatile politics

Madali ang maging tao, mahirap magpakatao.

Nurses
No matter how clever or sophisticated a man may appear, he is merely clay waiting to be shaped by the hand of a superior woman.  It is, however, best not to let him know this.

^ yup! Everytime I meet other nationalities, they always said...my maid was/is Filipina or I got a Filipina friend, she's a nurse. Why are you different?  :o

Panapanahon kasi 'yan, eh!

There was a time that we were popular for strong economy and exports of rice, sugar, copper, gold, etc. Then, naging corruption and shoes of Imelda.  Then DH, caregivers and nurses.  As what have already mentioned.

Sana in the future, maging maganda naman.

I think there's nothing wrong if we are known for DH, nurses and caregivers providers. These are the most decent jobs. Providing care and giving service to the people in need. Paano nalang kaya kung wala nang pinoy sa mundo? Come to think of it.

 They are well-known in the service sector field, having tons of patience with anyone, being too emotional.

Pag walang Pinoy, meron pa naman mga Mexicans, Indians, Indonesians to do this job.  Kaya lang hirap ng Indians because of the smell.  Baka mamatay ng maaga ang pasyente. he,he,he!  ;D ;D ;D

Our hospitality siempre.

Also, we easily get recognized by our accent.  ;)
God loves me... and YOU!
