What are your opinions on the following things about the Philippines?
Philippine nature is one of the best kept secret in the world… We are mysterious and diverse in wild life like for example, we are only one of the few countries in the world where school of whalesharks and delicate Tarsiers can regularly be seen. And our Sun, Sea and Sand combination is one of the great attractions of our beloved country.
Nothing compares from our tasty Filipino Dishes, we have different varieties of foods, from the delicious sabaw of sinigang and bulalo to the mouth-watering sinugba of pork, beef and Sea foods. Our appetizing Lechon, Sisig, Adobo and yummy exotic offerings like balut, adidas and tokneneng. All the foods from the Philippines are assured delicious and addictive to the taste buds because Filipinos love to cook and eat food. We just love to fill up our stomach, it’s already in our culture, we de-stress ourselves through eating a scrumptious feast.
Different kinds of Filipinos from different places in the Philippines have their own unique, mysterious and intriguing cultures and beliefs. You will just be fascinated with their rituals and traditions. From dances, fiestas, healing practices and the kinds of clothing they wear. But the most prominent culture we have is we always love to offer our food to other people especially from foreign lands, it’s our sign of a gracious greeting.
I am a Filipino but personally, for me, the kindest and most hospitable Filipinos are the Visayans. They are sweet in gestures and their way of talking is engaging. They are so caring that they will immediately take care of your personal needs and wants. And they love to brighten up your day by always smiling, even if they are tired, they will readily give a smile at you…
What do you dislike about the Philippines?
Filipino reporters doing exaggerated black propaganda about their own country creating fear of foreign tourist from all over the world. And those rebels creating wars within our country making Philippine tourism suffer.
What do you like about the Philippines?
Of course, The Sun, Sea and Sand plus the Filipino dishes and fresh catch Sea foods and the most hospitable people in the world, the Filipinos! We have one of the best kept natural beauties in the whole world…
