EDUCATIONAL DAY or AM I JUST LOVING MY LIFE AFTER ALL???

Hmm... ibland undrar jag varför många folk runt omkring mig eller när jag träffar nya människör, dem undrar var mitt hemland ligger? Andra har så många funderingar om landet. Rika, rikare, rikast. Fattig, fattigare, fattigast!!! Dessa frågor alltid står längst upp i lång listan. Jo, hur ska jag börja då? Landet har en lång historia. Men för att göra historian kort så är Filippinerna en av dem länder som är mest amerikan-engelskan språk begåvad.

Jo, när man är rik i Filippinerna så är man rik och verkligen fattig när man är fattig.

Det är svårt att förstå hur detta land uppkommit. Enligt många historiker så finns det så många stammar från norra till södra Fillippinerna. Så många att även jag hade ingen aning hur den kom sig. Jag läste någon gång att första stammen som kom i detta lilla land heter "Negritos" men många kontrar påståndet. Men... men...

GENOM BILDER KAN JAG BIDRA EN ANING-DET ÄR BRA ATT SE VÅR STAMMAR
MY SIMPLE EXPLANATIONS THROUGH PHOTOS OF OUR TRIBES:

Tribes from LUZON
Igorot tribes in Baguio, Luzon
Ifugao, Northern Luzon
***********************
Tribes (partly) from VIsayas

Ati tribe, Visayas Central Philippines
Spanish "kimona" dress wore during the spanish regime from 1564-1899
Cebuano Ati tribes, Visayas-catholicism due to spaniards
Native in Central Visayas
**************************
Special people like me: tribes from Mindanao
B´laan tribe
B´laan mat weaver, a nice product of the Philippines
Typical chit-chat in their "gumne" lounge
Muslim ladies, Balongis, Mindanao
Malong weaver (their native skirt)
Tribe farmer, Southern Mindanao
"TASADAY" tribes from where I grew up---pls read the link
Manobo tribe, works at our farmstead
Badjao (sea gipsies) tribe in Davao area
This is the usual tribe you see nowadays in most islands

Hmm ... sometimes I wonder why many people around me or when I meet new people fragile them wonder where my country is? Others have so many concerns about the country. Rich, richer, richest. Poor, poorer, poorest! These issues are always at the top of a long list. Well, how should I start then? Philippines has a long history. But to make the story short Philippines is one of those countries in Asia who is most American-English language talented. One of Asian county who predominantly catholicism, the second is East Timor. Almost 95% are catholics according to the census conducted in the year 2000, the total area of this region was estimated to be 115,831 square miles. The census report also stated that the total population of this region was 90 million, having an average population density of 715 per square mile or maybe a bit more depends increase population.

Well, when you are rich in the Philippines you're so rich and really poor when you are poor.

It is difficult to understand how this country arose. According to many historians, there are so many strains from northern to southern Philippines. So many that even I had no clue--- how it came too. I read some artcles that the first strain that came in this small country called "negritos" but many counter-claims, it wasn't?

I hope in this short current event in my post, I give you some clues & thoughts how my old country is.
I am not 100% aware of our history althoug I studied Bachelor in Tourism Management for 4 years in Philippine Women's University in Manila with flying colours. Well... that's my history!

P.S.
I received many emails inquiring my old country and mostly the queries intended to the people of the Philippines. They wonder why we look so unsimilar to other Asians.

SO! THIS IS A SHORT STORY I CAN SHARE TO YOU DEAR FRIENDS...
WHETHER YOU'RE INTERESTED OR NOT.
A VERY CONCISE EXPLANATION SO YOU WON'T GET BORED READING!!!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!

  9. Richie, you know we have many tribes in Borneo too, I am always fascinated with them, their lives and how they are living at their own environment. Nice post and very informative. Hope the recovery is going smoothly, no bungee jumping or skiing for now ok ;p hugs/m

  10. MK:
    Yes... I know Borneo's tribes too as am living not far from that area. Actually our ancestor's or the first ppl in this area are in the same tribes.

    These aren't the only tribes we have in the Phils. There are more tribes that I skipped coz I don't want to share the information without researching it first. So mb next ish, dear.

    No bungee jump at all nor my training classes for 6 months. Gee! I can imagine how I look like by then §:((

    My hubby was really angry when he came home & found that I arrange the entrance porch in summer style & I painte my old bike, so I can have that as my flower arrangement stand. He yelled!!! "NOW AM OUTA HERE" §:-))

    I said, "it's not heavy!". Dóh!

    hugs to you all from sunny Stockholm---
