Truth About the Philippines

 A few days ago, I had finished reading a book.  It was written by Bob Ong who is my Favorite author in the Philippines. The book contains all about the Philippines and Filipinos. Matapos kong mabasa ang librong ito, napukaw ang aking kaisipan ukol sa ating bansa. Bakit nga ba hindi umunlad-unlad ang Pilipinas? Bakit patuloy ang pagdmi ng mga Kababayan nating nakikipagsapalaran sa ibang bansa para lamang mabuhay ang kanilang Pamilya? Bakit mayroong mga Pilipino na hindi kayang ipamalaki ang kanilang lahi kahit pa dito sila nagmula at nagka-isip? Ganyan na ba kahirap na matanggap na ang Pilipinas ay may pangit na kalakaran ng pamumuhay?

 As a Filipino, I won't deny that our Country faces many Problems about graft and corruption, poverty, Financial Problems, etc. But ... aside from the negative image of the Philippines in the other Country. Philippines are rich in Cultures and Famous Sceneries like:

Banaue Rice Terraces (Benguet, Baguio City)
Mayon Volcano ( Albay , Bicol Region )

 These are only the two beautiful sceneries that you may enjoy if you travel the Philippines. Aside from that, Filipinos are known for being Hospitable, Approachable and Friendly.

Modern Fairy Tale !!

 * Once upon a time in a far away land ... *

I have one question ... Where do you usually hear those lines ?! Yes, You're right !! In a Book that is full of fantasy or what we called Fairy Tales. Oh God ! I love reading books. Sometimes, I can finish reading books in one week or even days.

Ok .. back to the topic, when I was a young, My Mom always read me a book before I sleep like Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Three Little Pigs *ooh ! I love that book.* Hansel and Gretel, Aladdin and etc. Some of it usually have their Prince and Princess as a character. I wish I could have my own Prince too. :D

Last April 29, 2011, almost 2 billion people all over the world watched The Royal Wedding of The Century. many tourists came to London, England just to see in personal the Newlyweds. Catherine Duchess of Cambridge was sooooooo Lucky to have Prince William, who is the future King of England. Catherine is beautiful in every way even though she didn't put make up.

I wish I could find my own Prince too. But not at this moment, I have many things to do to fulfill my dreams. Well, I hope that their marriage will LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER !! :)

Congratulations and greetings from Philippines.
