global pinoys and pinays!!! ATTENTION... what happened to us???

Post by ccchick on Sun Aug 10, 2008 10:55 pm

i received this thru email and mind you, totoo ung sinasabi dito.. as in... ano sa palagay nyo???

PINOYS AND PINAYS

Meron akong gustong ibahagi para sa ating lahat na mga PILIPINO. Simple pero parang mahirap gawin ng karamihan sa atin.Hindi ito makukuha sa puro daldalan lang or walang kabuluhang pagtatalo,kumilos tayo ngayon na.

Sa ibang bansa: Pag nagkasala ang Pinoy, pinarusahan siya ayon sa batas.
Sa PINAS: Pag nagkasala ang ang Pinoy,ayaw niyang maparusahan kasi sabi niya mali raw ang batas.

Sa ibang bansa: Pinag-aaralan muna ng Pinoy ang mga batas bago siya pumunta roon, kasi takot siyang magkamali.
Sa PINAS: Pag nagkamali ang Pinoy, sorry kasi hindi raw niya alam na labag sa batas iyon.

Sa ibang bansa: Kahit gaano kataas ang bilihin at tax sa USA okey lang, katuwiran natin doble kayod na lang.
Sa PINAS: mahilig ka sa last day para magbayad ng tax minsan dinadaya mo pa o kaya hindi ka nagbabayad.
Rally ka kaagad kapag tumaas ang pasahe at bilihin imbes na magsipag mas gusto natin ang nagkukwentuhan lang sa munisipyo o kahit sa alinmang tanggapan.

Sa Singapore : Kapag nahuli kang nagkalat or nagtapon ng basura sa hindi tamang lugar, magbabayad ka na 500 Singapore dollars. Sabi ng Pinoy, okey lang kasi lumabag ako sa batas.
Sa Pinas: Kapag nagkamali ang Pinoy katulad nang ganito, Sabi ng Pinoy, ang lupit naman ni Bayani Fernando , mali naman ang pinaiiral niyang batas eh akala mo kung sino. Ayun nag-rally na ang Pinoy, gustong patalsikin si Bayani Fernando kahit na alam niyang mali siya.

Mga igan, ilan pa lang iyan baka may iba pa kayong alam.
Bakit ang PINOY, pwedeng maging 'law abiding citizen sa ibang bansa ng walang angal' pero sa sarili nating bayang PILIPINAS na sinasabi ninyong mahal natin, eh hindi natin magawa, BAKIIITTTTT? ????????

ETO PA, 'Ang Pilipino NOON at NGAYON':
NOON: Wow ang sarap ng kamote (kahit nakaka-utot)
NGAYON: Ayaw ko ng kamote gusto ko French Fries (imported eh)

NOON: Wow ang sarap ng kapeng barako
NGAYON: Ayaw ko niyan gusto kong kape sa STARBUCKS (imported coffee 100 pesos per cup)

NOON: Bili ka ng tela para magpatahi ng pantalon like maong
NGAYON: Gusto ko LEVI'S, WRANGLER, LEE (Tapos rally tayo 'GMA tuta ng KANO ') Di ba tuta ka rin naman.

NOON: Sabon na Perla OK ng pampaligo
NGAYON: Gusto mo DOVE, HENO DE PRAVIA,IVORY, etc. may matching shampoo pa

NOON: Pag naglaba ka batya at palopalo ok na,minsan banlaw lang sa batis pwede na
NGAYON: Naka-washing machine ka na plus ARIEL powder soap with matching DOWNY pa para mabango

Alam ko mas marami pa ang alam ninyo tungkol dito, pero mangilan-ngilan lang iyan para bigyan ng pansin.
Mga Pilipino nga ba tayo? O baka sa salita lang at E-Mail pero wala naman sa gawa.

My Fellow Filipinos,
When I was small, the Philippine peso was P7 to the $dollar. The president was Diosdado Macapagal. Life was simple. Life was easy. My father was a farmer. My mother kept a small sari-sari store where our neighbors bought sang-perang asin, sang-perang bagoong, sang-perang suka, sang-perang toyo at pahinging isang butil na bawang. Our backyard had kamatis, kalabasa, talong, ampalaya, upo, batao, and okra. Our silong had chicken. We had a pig, dog & cat. And of course, we lived on the farm. During rainy season, my father caught frogs at night which my mother made into batute (stuffed frog), or just plain fried. During the day, he caught hito and dalag from his rice paddies, which he would usually inihaw. During dry season, we relied on the chickens, vegetables, bangus, tuyo, and tinapa. Every now and then, there was pork and beef from the town market. Life was so peaceful, so quiet, no electricity, no TV. Just the radio for Tia Dely, Roman Rapido, Tawag ng Tanghalan and Tang-tarang- tang. And who can forget Leila Benitez on Darigold Jamboree? On weekends, I played with my neighbours (who were all my cousins). Tumbang-preso, taguan, piko, luksong lubid, patintero, at iba pa. I don't know about you, but I miss those days.

These days, we face the TV, Internet, e-mail, newspaper, magazine,grocery catalog, or drive around. The peso is a staggering and incredible P47 to the $dollar. Most people can't have fun anymore. Life has become a battle. We live to work. Work to live. Life is not easy. I was in Saudi Arabia in 1983. It was lonely, difficult, & scary. It didn't matter if you were a man or a woman. You were a target for rape. The salary was cheap & the vacation far between. If the boss didn't want you to go on holiday, you didn't. They had your passport. Oh, and the agency charged you almost 4months of your salary (which, if you had to borrow on a '20% per month arrangement' meant your first year's pay was all gone before you even earned it). The Philippines used to be one of the most important countries in Asia . Before & during my college days, many students from neighboring Asian countries like Malaysia , Indonesia , Japan and China went to the Philippines to get their diplomas. Until 1972,like President Macapagal, President Marcos was one of the most admired presidents of the world. The Peso had kept its value of P7 to the $dollar until I finished college. Today, the Philippines is famous as the 'housemaid' capital of the world. It ranks very high as the 'cheapest labor' capital of the world, too. We have maids in Hong Kong , laborers in Saudi Arabia , dancers in Japan ,migrants and TNTs in Australia and the US , and all sorts of other 'tricky' jobs in other parts of the globe. Quo Vadis, Pinoy? Is that a wonder or a worry? Are you proud to be a Filipino, or does it even matter anymore? When you see the Filipino flag
and hear the Pambansang Awit, do you feel a sense of pride or a sense of defeat & uncertainty? If only things could change for the better...... . Hang on for this is a job for Superman. Or whom do you call? Ghostbusters. Joke. Right?

This is one of our problems.

We say 'I love the Philippines .. I am proud to be a Filipino.'

When I send you a joke, you send it to everyone in your address book even if it kills the Internet. But when I send you a note on how to save our country & ask you to forward it, what do you do?
You chuck it in the bin.

I want to help the maids in Hong Kong .. I want to help the laborers in Saudi Arabia .. I want to help the dancers in Japan .. I want to help the TNTs in America and Australia ..

I want to save the people of the Philippines .. But I cannot do it alone. I need your help and everyone else's.
So please forward this e-mail to your friends. If you say you love the Philippines , prove it. And if you don't agree with me, say something anyway. Indifference is a crime on its own.

lumiit na kasi yung mundo kaya medyo nawala na yung preference ng mga pinoy sa sariling atin. siyempre because of the rise of globalization and of course, the improve in the today's technology is communication, nandyan na kasi yung internet, more cable channels, cellphones, dvd/vcds. mas naging tuned ang mga pinoy sa global pop culture rather than their own country's pop culture.

tulad na lang dito sa dubai...hindi pwedeng maging pasaway mga pinoy kundi mabubulok sila sa kalaboso!!!haha...

i see it in two views...

positive: magiging impressions ng ibang lahi eh law abiding talaga ang mga pinoy

negative: pag sa sariling bayan kasi wala silang disiplina so kawawa ang lupang tinubuan...

Your "humorous analysis " of pinas has some validitiy kaya lang comparing then and now is more complicated and not as simplistic as your narrative.

What can I say? PINOYS have been maligned left and right, up and down.
We need a visionary and a selfless leader to guide us and unite us. Was Ninoy Aquino a good candidate, probably not but we will never know, will we? The tribal mentality seems to be a great impediment to unite us as a force of one. But I am always hopeful that someone will inspire us all one day.

Hello,

I find your post interesting. What you say is mostly true granted the post was written in 08. Fast forward to today 2011, a lot of the fundamental things have changed for the worst. Mainly those, the people who wear smart suits and ties, the highly educated ones, are actually the criminals. The elite 1%, it is still the almighty dollar that talks. If you break the law and if you can afford the legal fees, your chances are elevated.

"Sa ibang bansa: Kahit gaano kataas ang bilihin at tax sa USA okey lang, katuwiran natin doble kayod na lang."

The sad thing is that elite 1% pays less tax than the regular folks below. They we're able to manipulate and create legal instruments by lobbying the law makers to their advantage. And am talking about people who are highly educated and have MBA's and PHD's. The degree of separation between the haves and have not’s, gets wider and wider.

I've seen the flight of Filipinos in the middle east, I can empathize.

Unfortunately, here in the US. Filipinos would still act and behave in a way that At times would make you think, and wonder. I am not knocking the Filipinos. I left the Philippines when I was 18, last time I was there was in 90. At times, when you would expect your own countrymen or women to unite with you in a foreign place, but, they are the ones who will drive the knife deep in your back. It is so very unfortunate. Although not all, there are some who veers from the norm, perhaps the same mentality as you.


And lastly,

"I want to save the people of the Philippines ... But I cannot do it alone. I need your help and everyone else's.
So please forward this e-mail to your friends. If you say you love the Philippines, prove it. And if you don't agree with me, say something anyway. Indifference is a crime on its own.
"

I was told once by a wise Filipino who lived there and since had migrated here, that the only way the Philippines will change its deep rooted deficiencies, is through Civil War.. When brothers would spill and bath in their blood. Perhaps by losing it, then you would realize what you had. I hope it does not go that far, it will be sad.

Filipinos are very smart. When that smart is properly managed it becomes talent and productive. But when used to self serving and nefarious purposes, it becomes cunning and destructive.

I really wish things would change, but I highly doubt i will witness this in my lifetime. I do have hope, that my son might see it in his. Good Luck to the both of us (and all of us), we’re gonna need it. And lots of it too. Thank you and I hope you had a pleasant day.
