Google’s Aileen Apolo tagged me for this meme: What are the 3 signs you see happening now that make you say, “it feels great to be Pinoy”? Thanks to the Macalua who started this meme.
1. Filipinos actors, directors, musicians, artists and sportsmen from the Philippines are making waves internationally. Lea Salonga, Manny Pacquiao, Efren Bata Jr. (idol!), Paeng Nepumoceno, Cecil Licad — they are the best at what they do. The list can go on and on. Not only that, Filipinos are dominating the nursing and outsourcing industries here and abroad. In short: we help make the world go round!
2. Can I say I’m proud to be Davaoeno? Nothing beats Davao City in terms of livability, cleanliness, peace and order and low cost of living. This alone makes me proud to be born here. (hint: invest here now!)
3. Filipinos are smarting up. Like what Marc said, if you’re a celebrity it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re going to win an election as proved by the recent polls. Even though there are those ubiquitous trapos (ancient politicians) and dynasaurs (political dynasties), I’m just happy I won’t see Richard Gomez, Cesar Montano and Tito Sotto in office. I’m proud of Manny Pacquiao (see #1), but what does boxing have to do with running a city?
