Let me share with you my short list to answer the question, “Bakit ang Sarap Maging Pilipino?”
1) Ang #SarapMagingPilipino dahil sa pagmamahal ng pamilyang Pinoy.
You can’t deny the bond that a Filipino family has. Being together is not mandatory, but voluntary in every family member. Everyone in the family desires for the family to be together no matter what happens.
2) Ang #SarapMagingPilipino dahil napaka-ganda ng Pilipinas.
Luzon, Visayas or Mindanao, you’ll find gems of nature your eyes will surely enjoy. Situated near the equator results to a sunny weather in the Philippines. For me, it’s the weather perfect to appreciate our wonderful beaches in Boracay, Batangas, La Union, Palawan, Bicol and more. One of my favorite destinations is Puerto Princesa, Palawan, the home of the Underground River. A wonder of the world that even foreigners are attracted to.
3) Ang #SarapMagingPilipino dahil Masarap talaga ang pagkaing Pinoy.
With food alone, I can say it’s so fun to live in the Philippines. Each province offers their own version of dishes that can make you say, “Wow!”. Not only that, we have simple street foods that isn’t fancy but tasty to satisfy any adventurous person’s appetite. To name some, we have the exotic balut, fish balls, banana cue, kikiam, kwek kwek, etc.
4) Ang #SarapMagingPilipino dahil masaya maging Malaya.
It’s a blessing to live in a country where there is venue to be free. Free to speak our minds, free to love, and the most important thing for me, free to worship the God I believe in without persecution. We are not forced to believe in a god that we don’t 100% believe in. Here, we are given the free will to choose. Whoever you are, whatever you believe in, the country accepts you for who you are. No wonder foreigners find it easy to adapt to our free and hospitable culture.
5) Ang #SarapMagingPilipino dahil masayahin ang mga Pinoy, sa hirap at ginhawa.
For richer or for poorer, the smile on each Filipino’s faces is stamped that nobody can ever remove. We, Filipinos, have the attitude of being positive. We are very hopeful of good things to come. The inner beauty every Filipino has reflects the outer beauty. Just look around the Philippines, don’t you find every Filipino and Filipina beautiful and charming? 🙂
If Marcus is a proud Filipino citizen, why can’t we be proud as well?
