The Filipino Toxic Culture and How to Deal With It.

Image
I have been married to a Filipina for 20 years now and I know a thing or two about the Philippines and its culture. I do love the Philippines and its outstanding landscapes, its mixture of Spanish, Asian and American architectures, its cuisine and so much more, and I would go back there one million times to explore every nook and cranny of the archipelago. What are some of the toxic traits of the Filipino mentality? But, unfortunately, the Philippines is not just those amazing and fascinating things. It is also some of the nasty things that, from time to time, I mention in my blog and that qualify as "toxic". These include: Bahala-na (basically leaving things to chance and then expecting a higher power to take care of the consequences) Ningas kugon (when Filipinos have no clear plans or goals and their plans and goals easily fizzle out) Filipino time (the habit of always showing up late at an appointment or not showing up at all)

Kung Bakit Takot sa Akin ang mga Unggoy sa Pilipinas

Karamihan ng mga lalaki sa Pilipinas ay walang balahibo sa katawan.

At, syempre naman, ang mga unggoy na nasa kagubatan sa Pilipinas ay sanay sa mga lokal na tao at hindi sa aming mga foreigner.

Sa aking bansa maraming lalaki ay may makapal na balahibo sa katawan.

Ako ay may tunay na gubat sa katawan at makapal pa!

At syempre, kapag nakikita ng unggoy na nakatira sa gubat ang isang taong may makapal na gubat sa katawan, medyo takot iyon.....

Ang isang unggoy sa Sierra Madre, Bulacan
Unggoy na nasa gubat malapit sa Biak na Bato

Marami akong balahibo sa katawan
Ang makapal na gubat sa katawan ko

Biak na Bato
