Philippines and the Ethnicity Regionalism, Unity and Online Friendships and Tagging

I am searching about this topic at the moemnt. It is because I want to know why Philippines are so divided. However, I am surprised with the article that I am reading for it says .here that Philippines is not really that divided. By I wonder why because per my observation, Filipinos are really steriotyping each other and love to be identified as Tagalog, Ilonggo, Cebuano, Bicolano, Pampangeno, etcetera rather than as a "Filipino".

Why my mind is in this issue? Because I remember this as I have been tagged and helped by various friends online. I know online friendship might be easier than real ones but this is not always the case. Even online, you cannot befriend someone whom you are not comfortable with. And to think that we are in various parts of the world and yet can be friends is a bit overwhelming.


The only moment that I have seen Filipinos so united is during the fight/boxing match of Manny Pacquiao! What if there is no Pacquiao? We don't have reason to live and enjoy the unity of a nation? We unite to support those who excel. Why? Because they excel? It's a bad answer then! We should unite TO ESCEL as well! In our own way, in our own home, in ourselves. We shoould help each other! We SHOULD NOT pull each other down. But after all, words are easier said than done. What can you say?

Since I have mentioned that I have tags that's why I have remembered the topic above, this is my chance to post them here. To those who plan to tag me, please take note that I am posting the tags by batch on a weekend of your tag, unless I cannot log log on the first weekend after your tag. In which case, I will be posting them next time. I apologise for this system but I need to blend the tags with the theme of this blog. I do hope you understand. Sometimes I post the tags with my existing post like what I did with the tag of Gina and .Anino before.

And if you happen to read this, and you may see that I am not as active in the succeeding weeks, please bear with me. i am planning to be in another country and i am not sure of the luck of my connection there. But for sure, I will be back. Just leave your messages in the comment area of this post. Moreover, I am hoping to make some flicks with this blog to share some money with my fellow Pinoys once my unique counter reaches 5000 unique hits so you may watch out as well. You might make yourself a thousand or two richer back in Pinas.

Fourth Tag? Again from Bluedreamer27. This is on top five blogs of the tagged one at the moment and the reasons for making them my Top 5ive. I just share them with you as well.

My top 5 are the following:
1.THE MELIORIST by Gina for her unconditional love for the "mother earth" and her zeal for a better world to live in. Moreover, for her strong will for the progress of the Filipino community.

2.Aller La-Bas by Weng for her struggles as a student and a great heart for the masses. I know her blog is not of the best layout and it has even designs for a real girly look but the content is amazing! Try to see it to prove.

3.Sheng's Simple Thoughts by Gorgeous Sheng. Actually, I don't know why I am stuck with such a personal blog like this one! But I am just hook how she adores her son and how she makes herself a perfect mom in everyday life.

4.Anino by Anino Shadow of course for his original stories and great friendship. But I am not really sure if he/she is a he or she! It's a code.

5.EMOTERA by Emotera This is another blog I read from time to time. Aside from an earning blog, which I learn how, she is as well very friendly. And lastly, she is and EMOTERA! ^_^

Those are my top five. What's yours?

AND ALL THE TAGS ABOVE I TAG MY TOP 5ive! Okies?
1.THE MELIORIST by Gina
2.Aller La-Bas by Weng
3.Sheng's Simple Thoughts by Gorgeous Sheng
4.Anino by Anino Shadow

    Hi Sheng! Thanks a lot too. Actually I ask myself "Since when did I start reading personal blogs?".. I feel funny because I am not into other people's lives.. Kaya nakakaintriga, kasi puno ng pics ng kaiden moh! hahaha! Anyway, I enjoy hovering around. Take care too and have a great week.
