#onlyinthephilippines





twitter users can have totally random eureka moments. and i had one yesterday.

i tweeted something about pedestrian etiquette yesterday afternoon, to which my good friend @luckymanzano replied, "only in the philippines are cars more important than pedestrians." suddenly, i had a flashback in my head of how many times i've actually used the phrase "only in the philippines" and at the same time, had a vision of the amount of slack the DOT has been getting for their taglines to promote local tourism, ie. pilipinas, tara na.

so, i decided to post this tweet..



instantly, i got a wave, no, a tsunami of replies and retweets saying they agree, and please allow me to quote my friend and amazing artist @ricoblanco's comment, "brilliant"! (coming from him, pumalakpak tenga ko.) this has got to be one of my most retweeted tweets ever since i started tweeting. 420+ RTs and counting. (thank you to those who liked my tweet!!)

later in the day, i decided to post statements of what i think tourists would love about our country, that is unique to us, that is found #onlyinthephilippines..



here are some of the #onlyinthephilippines statements other proud pinoys posted on twitter!






















i also liked this statement from a proud pinoy who lives abroad. :)



and just for fun.. iba talaga pagka-maabilidad ng pinoy! hulog piso internet!





i want to know.. what is your proud to be pinoy #onlyinthephilippines statement?

#onlyinthephilippines is where you'll find amazingly brilliant artists and celebrities that has a purpose in life: not just being in the limelight, not just being famous, and not just for the money.. these artist/celebrities do their best to help the less fortunate and be a blessing and inspiration to others, and you're one of them, ms. bianca.. good job! *salute* :)

i am proud to be pinoy because we take care of our old parents lovingly and not just send them to some home like in other countries. =)

This is one of the most interesting post of yours Miss Bianca and I love it so much. Hehe. I'm quite surprise with your new domain. I didn't know that it's already "www.iamsuperbianca.com" na. I was still typing "www.iamsuperbianca.blogpsot.com" and then Google gives me different results. Pero, this is much better. Less characters to type just to visit your website whenever I'm at work. God bless.

dear miss bianca, this comment is out of the topic. Gusto ko lang pong iextend ang gratitude ko sa inyo kasi im super inspired. You know the times when you're super down? Yung times na kahit sa mga friends mo wala kang masabihan? I pray of course, pero iba pa din yung may nakakausap ka. I tend to back read your entries. Hehehe Basta. Yung confidence parang biglang bumabalik. Hindi po ako maganda, and not as wealthy as you are, but proud po ako na we are both morena! Ha-ha! Saka keep on inspiring people. I don't know how but I would love to have a conversation with you. Keep on dreaming. Hehehe Thank you for being so positive. It's true that being positive is contagious. God Bless Miss Bianca. :)

Ok din talaga ang mga pinoy dati meron ganyan pero yung mga video games lang ngayun since faced out na ang video games ito naman ang ginawan nila ng hulog barya. :-) Cool.
