WHAT I THINK OF PHILIPPINES AND ITS PEOPLE
Some Japanese people looks down the people in the Philippines.
I think people should not be judged like that. Citizens of industrialized countries tend to look down the people on a still developing countries. Even in the past, discrimination happened anywhere.
In history in Japan, discrimination against Korean people was rampant, but after World War II, Korean Republic became famous.
I am currently living in the countryside of Cebu with reliable Filipino people. Based on my observations, there were many people who didn’t have anything in their house such as television, gas stove, and even electricity. However, many young people have smartphones even without a TV in their house and Wi-Fi connection was free when going to town.
Educational system in the Philippines has been changed. The students learn English at a very young age in their Kindergarten.
Another thing, Filipino people have a strong bond among each other. Young people always work hard to support their families. In short, they have lived a very simple lifestyle without seeking for great wealth and unnecessary things. However, they really know what is important for them. That is, they can get a lot of information and learn through English and the internet. And more than anything, they have a willingness to learn for sake of support their family.
These Filipino young children who really studied hard for their future and acquired the skills will soon take part in the economic society and the power will be enormous.
Currently Japan has full of things to live comfortably and conveniently. There are a lot of best infrastructures, yet they have forgotten the important things in life. “Look for oneself” has become popular in Japan.
I had established BAYSIDE ENGLISH CEBU with the help of Filipino people and it became prosperous by their great effort and perseverance. This school was loved by many students in different nationalities.
It will be born again as a world BRIDGE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL with great Filipino People.
I lost everything I owned in the Philippines however I still love Philippines and the Filipino people.
I am looking forward to the prosperity of this country in the future.
