Being Asian has its perks. For one, you can speak another language aside from English. That makes you multi-lingual! You also enjoy the best of both worlds in terms of food. Take for example having kare-kare and bagoong for lunch and a quarter pounder with cheese, large fries and coke for dinner. In movies, you also get to enjoy the latest flick by Sharon Cuneta as well as this summer's Hollywood fare. Music, Literature, even gossip! It would be boring talking about David and Victoria Beckham all the time! So despite the poverty-stricken, highly polluted and waaaay over-populated country that I belong to that's almost in the dumpster what from the recent politicking...there are certainly some positive aspects to being an Asian and a Filipino at that. Mabuhay ang Pilipino!
