Philippines is the 2nd fastest growing economy in Asia after China. And it is newly industrializing economy like my country Malaysia. But, Malaysia will be the first nation to reach developed status. Remember Philippines together with Thailand and Malaysia considered as the New Tiger Economy in Asia.

As of 2012 was the prosper of the Philippine economy. According most of the economist, 2013 is the most prosperous for the Philippine economy. And it is expected to grew 8% highest than any other ASEAN nation. To all people who hates Philippines, don't underestimate the Philippines. Maybe the many people reacted here about the BOOMING OF THE PHILIPPINES is jealous because their economy suffered bankruptcy and recession not like Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines always prosper in their economy.

My Malaysian friend of mine has been telling me that Kuala Lumpur has progressed by leaps and bounds. He told me that the roads have improved substantially, and the infrastructure is becoming impressive.

He mentioned that the road safety and rules are improving in Kuala Lumpur. And with many Malaysian international students studying in Australia, New Zealand and other countries, they are learning from those sources as well.

There's no turning back. The progress of the Philippines and ASEAN can no longer be ignored by other countries. That's why, businesses and capital inflows are pouring in from all over.

The Sick man of Asia is now emerging as one of the "New Tiger Economy in Asia."

In President Acquino's most recent trip to USA, he asked for money and Obama gave him $10 million only. Filipino officials, average people and the media were angry saying that it was an insult to be given such a small amount. They thought they were being treated like a beggar.
If you gave them US$1 billion, they won't feel insulted even though that is still begging for money from someone.
In conclusion, they feel insulted to be treated as a beggar of petty cash, but would feel alright to be a super beggar.
Is it convoluted thinking? Where is their self-esteem?
When a race and a nation have no pride, would it deserve respect from others?
that is the conundrum that is the filipins. to filipinos the answer to your question will be a resounding yes.

to the world? a resounding no.

like everything else, the filipino has redefined the word pride to suit their societies more than obvious short-comings. no pun intended.

consider the term "saving face", the filipinos most perfect invention . used in every situation imaginable where they have destroyed their credibility. regardless of the violation they must be allowed to "SAVE FACE".

topix is a good place to witness the saving of face. few flipinos will agree with foreigners on any topic that reflects poorly on them and the results are weapons of mass profanities and toilet talk . the ever popular pedo cries.

its an asian thing in general it seems, so we dont know who gets it from who, but threads are hi-jacked daily by 4th grade asian mentalities throughout the world.

on the rare occasion a filipino can be found that will discuss their problems in a manner that shows they understand and agree.

they would be attacked as Filipino traitors of course by their more rabid compatriots.

i suspect that their beggars behavior is the result of their former colonizers frustration in trying to teach them how to stand on their own two feet, rather giving up and just handing them the crumbs from the table, so they would go away for a while.

makes sense to me.

all countries in this world have 2 faces, the negative & positive side in them. but sad to say that most of the foreign nationalities posting here tend to ignore the positive side & focus only on the negative side with over exaggerated reactions or statements!!!

Say what you what to say people. The Philippines sure has some ugly side, but the Philippines' and ASEAN's importance in the world couldn't be covered anymore by anyone no matter how they want to. Just pray that when the table's has fully turned around, you're not there to see it and pay the tol for your underestimating.

Chinese in North America are best money eaners among all racial groups, higher than white, and other Asia group.
Actually some of what he says is true, but not the entire truth. Fact is there are Asian gangs in America that exploit the asian communities and destroy what those "Best money earners" are trying to accomplish. Many of the crimes either go unreported or ignored. The cops here are over paid and don't really care, I doubt that they even filed a report. In addition women from china are kidnapped and many who come here for the "American Nightmare" are forced into prostitution where pimps gangmembers police and judges all make a shit load of money off of these desperate women.

I agree, but since the USA pretty much owns their asses and we use their island as we see fit there isn't much else they can do. It is really a sorry state to see a whole country degraded to the level that the phillipines has been degraded to but it is what it is.
