So whats the problem with that? kung yun yung mga palatandaan natin at kultura natin para masibing pilipino ka walang problema dun,yan ay tatak na natin at pagmamalaki ko yan,kahit sabihin na ang baduy nun.hehehe.

pero may mga puntos akong sasabihin na ayaw ko naman sa ugali nang pinoy.ito ay....

1.pagiging mayabang lalo na pag nakarating nasa sa ibang bansa
2.may nakapag sabing racist ang pinoy,e masasbi ko na tama din yun,kahit nasa sarili nating bansa pag nalamang bisaya ka pagtatawanan ka,
3.mahilig manggaya,walang sariling ideya ,puro gaya lang ,mapa sining,musika,arkitektura o pelikula.pero at least magaling tayong mag inovate,hehehe
4.masyadong big deal sa atin pag may marinig tayong mag englis na malimali,agad nating pinagtatawanan.(bat sa ibang lahi di nman ganun).hehehe
5.sariling kababayan pinapahamak lalo na pag nasa abroad,
6.pagiging talangka
7.makulit,kahit na bawal ginagawa pa rin.di marunong sumunod sa batas.katwiran wala naman nakakakita,di nman tayo sinisita,pagnahuli nalang tayo,bahala na.
hmmm ano paba? yun lang muna isip pa ako,hehehe

just want to add some disadvantages from sir valeriano ( whether we like it or not, just have to accept it) :

-crab mentality
-seloso
-alam ng mabaho e hinahanap pa (hahaha)
-plastik
-at ang ayaw na ayaw ko eh yung nagdudunong dunungan.

but of course mas marami ang advantages of being a filipino in which stated above, but the first one is being Hospitable ( uso pa kaya ito?)
