    On the lighter side...People can be divided into three groups:

    Those who make things happen...
    those who watch things happen
    those who wonder what happened..

    You know you are a Filipino if:

    ** instead of saying "i beg your pardon." you say "HA?"
    ** instead of saying "One moment please" you say."For a while."
    **You are a Pinoy if you say "CR" instead of toilet.
    ** you ask for "Colgate" instead of toothpaste.
    **you respond to "HOOY" or a "Pssst !!"
    **you p*ss on the wall.

    Recently a man was telling me that the tricycle drivers now signal with their feet and later I observed that behavior. Just as I was getting the hang of pointing with my lips now I have to do it while balancing on one foot.
