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?
