A RECONSTRUCTED PORTRAIT OF JUAN ENTRE MA CRUZ
Simply by Roger Wear S. J. Cerda
Exactly how describe this Filipino? Exactly what the features or physical attributes that make us stand out among all the contests in the world? � What unique marks can we have? Can it be our nasal area that is as big and wide as the gorilla's? Is it the fair skin area? Is it our round dark brown eyes? � Is it each of our moderate height? Is it our unique dark hair? � Is it our proficiency inside the Filipino vocabulary? � Could it be our conservative way of dressing or the hardly naked a single? � Could it be because we live in the 7, 107 islands with the Philippines be it low wave or large tide? Could it be because we� eat avenue food just like fish ball, squid ball, and poultry feet? Or perhaps non-e in the above? �
Even before the intrusion with the Spaniards, the Americans, as well as the Japanese, we Filipinos curently have atypical and unexplainable people that set us aside from other competitions. Aside from your physical characteristics, we discover an identity that depicts a Filipino today. � But actually, we demonstrate a lot of ironies and paradoxes inside our lifestyles that at times, we, ourselves, will be confused about our true identity, as if do not know whom we genuinely are.
Due to rapid technological advancement as well as the unstable circumstances of our lives, we have evolved making ourself famous in one way or another -- advantages or disadvantages. �
At this juncture, I might say that we all typify the subsequent traits: �
First, We all Filipinos have got a Remarkable Sense of Humor. Where in this world (aside from your mental hospital), do we discover people having a laugh for no reason in any way? � In which do you find people smiling even inside the most disheartening situation? In which do we discover people making fun of their own mistakes? � Where do we see people discussing trivia at the level of a crystal clear and present danger?
When i came across the television video clip of hurricane Reming in Bicol, We felt unhappy for those who dropped their houses and other essential properties. However , I experienced slightly appeased when those typhoon subjects smiled and waved like nothing cataclysmic happened when they saw the lights of roving digital cameras. � Well, it's just in the Philippines where persons do not have serious things seriously.
I remember the president in the Philippine Regular University when he narrated his childhood experience with his British teacher at my week-long seminar in English language Language Instructing and Screening in 04 of 2007. His instructor brought apples, oranges, and mangoes to create their lesson on adjective understandable and memorable, so the teacher started teaching... " This is an apple and this is actually a noun, use nouns in a sentence? " � His classmate placed at the back increased his side to answer, calm teacher called him and said, " Ok, work with nouns in a sentence. " His classmate stood direct and with confidence said, Ï want to have those adjective. " � And everyone leave. � We realized that frivolity is indeed the best medicine because you feel great every time somebody makes you titter.
Still others, because of technical advancement, are contented to show their elaborate hilarity through text messaging.
We Filipinos never be used up of comedies. We are very resourceful in creating shaggy dog tales despite the burden we proceed our shoulder blades and the preoccupations that we have. We all always find time to produce other people chuckle, as the saying goes, " The best way to cheer yourself up is to perk other people up. " It can ironic because we value and desire funny and frequently ribald texts than the moving and faith based ones. Very well, it's just in the Korea.
Second, we Filipinos Have Extraordinaire Sense of Hospitality. We all always provide the best we have to our site visitors without any reservation. � Even with foreigners, whenever they visit the Israel for a vacation, we continue to speak all their language to accomodate these people because we regard them so much; on the contrary, when we check out a foreign area as travelers, they do not speak our terminology, so , do not have a choice...
