FilAms and Pinoys why similar in color yet so different?
Pinoy kids born in America. They got pinoy blood alright but education system brought them up to think and to act like Americans. They can eat our food sometimes but they smell it first with distrust before they put it in their mouth, speak broken tagalog, consider some of the pinoy culture are weird.
Pinoy kids who moved to America as juveniles, these kids are uprooted, they have to start again, small percentage of them ended up being teased, bullied in school, small percentage join asia gangs and they grow up confused. You know, no good in the head. Blame parents when their road is not leading them to Rome.
Pinoy kids who grew up in the Phils and Educated in the Phils up until college. They will never forget who they are. They can adapt when they to go live in America, work hard and become successful, own million dollar house, expensive cars, picnic with friends on weekends, they still eat Tuyo, Bagong and Kamatis. They will never become Americans but they will understand the American ways.
Pinoys in the Phils are 100% Pinoy and you know who you are! (cheers!)
"They can adapt when they to go live in America, work hard and become successful, own million dollar house, expensive cars" wow, i can tell you've never been in america..
yes it's true, some filipinos i know work 2 to 3 jobs just to send money at home. that means working 16 hours days + part time weekend work! that's 3 jobs! damn im glad i don't have to send anyone money myself. btw, i do speak 99.9% filipino, eat filipino food like kalamansi and bagoong but i also knows how to adjust like no filipino food for years, like no rice for 5 years!
don't know too much about donaire situation, but for me he's not even close to truly adapted american ways of life. he is still fresh off the boat immigrant so i believe he still hold all those true filipino values. his parents should have been more forgiving though to the son for whatever damage they might have done, not disowning them. i heard donaire saying on tv, he loves his dad and hopes one day find a peace and common ground with the family, but all i hear from dad side is more hate and that how evil and disloyal the new couples are. seriously?? we don't give a shiiat! we just want good boxing and im so sick and tired hearing donaires private life! no one cares! lol
