Balut, insane heat, and hospitality c:

I love the homeland, but seriously, right when i get off that plane and they open those doors going into the airport, that heat just SMACKS you right in the face. Amazing people but i wish it wasn't so corrupted :/

1. Past
2. Sadness
3. Hope

It sucks. I hadn't been there in ten years, and when I came back to visit, all i saw was filipinos groveling at the feet of chinese/korean/japanese tourists. It was so bad that I was told I couldn't go into certain bars which were 'korean/chinese' only, etc.

I'm glad I chose to become American after seeing what's been going on in my country. On the other hand, there's a sense of nostalgia I feel when I hit streets of Manila, the bars of Cebu, and the beaches of Boracay. The culture is very unique. Men still actually court women for months before starting a relationship.

All in all, if you've never been before, it's definitely worth a trip.
