    guys, specially cruiseship rn, with due respect, just asking... does the article you posted is the same one that came out in bob ong's book "bakit baliktad magbasa ng libro ang mga filipino?" a couple of years ago? there's no problem if it is, i just happen to own that book. bob ong compiled many other articles from his old website and put it to print. it talks about how other people, filipinos or non-filipinos, observe and make their own opinions about our being a filipino. and its kinda funny and at the same time
    irritating to know how the other nations think of our customs, traditions, beliefs, etc... but thanks for posting anyway! \m/

    i have no clue where did this came from, if you said you have the book where it is taken, then i guess its from there. i just thought i could put a little smile to all my fellow nurses out there..
    have a good day!
