    I love my Filipina girlfriend. She is the sweetest and most kind hearted person I have ever met. I've never received love, care and respect from another human the way she does for me. I plan on moving to the Philippines with her to Davao to start a life in farmland. Leaving America for good. I'm currently learning Tagalog and she's one of the best teachers I've ever had as well. Thank God for her in my life.

    I have been to the Philippines 6 times now with my Filipino wife and daughter. I love the country. Most of the time I have been in the southern city of davao. The people are really awesome. This last trip I came from the airport and forgot my cell phone in the taxi. I realized it was missing and was trying to figure out where it might have been misplaced. I thought it might be in the taxi cab. I went down to the front desk of the place I was staying and amazingly the taxi driver was there with my pho...

    Filipinos, i guess, prefer more friends than more money.

    The Philippines might not be the most richest and developed country anymore, but the people, and their happiness in life, even with very little things, is out of this world! The Filipinos are the most happiest people in the universe!

    Great video! This reminds me of someone I met a few years back when I was in London and having lunch with friends. This random english guy just invited himself over at our table and asked if he could spend his coffee time with Filipinos who he thinks are the happiest people in the world. At first we thought he was a con man but when he said he just visited Tondo, Manila a few weeks before, we warmed up immediately and he was happy for the welcoming space he got and the offer of extra food we have on t...

    Omg I am a Filipino... I can't stop my tears after reading your post. For me, perhaps most of us think this way because we know how hard life is, how it feels to be hungry, to feel abandoned, to be beaten by nature, to have nothing... And we don't want another person to experience that... We also know that life is short and can be taken away from us anytime, we also see from our relatives the sacrifices they made for us and because of that we cherish the simple things, we are able to feel that famil...
