Hello! I don't know if any of the people in theO still remember me, but I just want to say sorry to those people who are waiting for me to come back. I really had a lot fun here when I was super active. I met a lot of people too. Unfortunately, I've been super busy in real life. I suddenly needed to get serious with my studies or else goodbye to nursing school. Although I might pop out here and there, I don't know if I will be as active as I did before. I am going to be honest, I can't make pretty wallies anymore. I'm sorry if I disappointed some people... I tried with the recent one I submitted but somethings missing unlike the previous one I did and I'm sure some of you won't even remember how they looked like
as some of my cards and wallies were deleted, and I don't worry much cause it's the rules and I just need to follow them.
And I want to say thank you to all those people who greeted happy b-day to me. I really appreciate it :)
See ya around guys! I hope everybody's having an awesome summer.
I am only starting mine this week XD . If you guys have tumblr and want to know more what else are my interests, check out my tumblr page :). Just don't be surprised if my page is full of One Piece, my current obsession.
i just want to share an essay sent to me by my uncle. It's an essay written by a Korean student. I just thought that maybe not only the Filipinos may learn from this essay but also the other races, so this is how the essay goes...
MY SHORT ESSAY ABOUT THE PHILIPPINES
Filipinos always complain about the corruption in the Philippines.
Do you really think the corruption is the problem of the Philippines?
I do not think so. I strongly believe that the problem is the lack of love
for the Philippines.
Let me first talk about my country, Korea .
It might help you understand my point.
After the Korean War, South Korea was one
of the poorest countries in the world. Koreans
had to start from scratch because entire country was
destroyed after the Korean War, and we had no
Koreans used to talk about the Philippines , for
Filipinos were very rich in Asia . We envy Filipinos.
Koreans really wanted to be well off like Filipinos.
Many Koreans died of famine. My father & brother also died
because of famine.
Korean government was very corrupt and is still very
corrupt beyond your imagination, but Korea was
able to develop dramatically because Koreans really
did their best for the common good with their heart
burning with patriotism.
Koreans did not work just for themselves but also
for their neighborhood and country. Education inspired
young men with the
spirit of patriotism.
40 years ago, President Park took over the
government to reform Korea . He tried to borrow money
from other countries, but it was not possible to get a
loan and attract a foreign investment because the
economic situation of South Korea was so bad. K or ea had
only three factories. So, President Park sent many mine
workers and nurses to Germany so that
they could send money to Korea to build a factory.
They had to go through horrible experience.
In 1964, President Park visited Germany to borrow
money. Hundred of Koreans in Germany came to the
airport to welcome him and cried there as they saw
the President Park . They asked to him, "President,
when can we be well off?" That was the only question
everyone asked to him. President Park cried with
them and promised them that Korea would be well
off if everyone works hard for Korea , and the President
of Germany got the strong impression on them
and lent money to Korea . So, President Park was
able to build many factories in Korea . He always
asked Koreans to love their country from their heart.
Many Korean scientists and engineers in the USA
came back to Korea to help developing country
because they wanted their country to be well off.
Though they received very small salary, they did their
best for Korea . They always
hoped that their children
would live in well off country.
My parents always brought me to the places where
poor and physically handicapped people live. They
wanted me to understand their life and help them.
I also worked for Catholic Church when I was in the army.
The only thing I learned from Catholic Church was that we
have to love our neighborhood. And, I have loved my
neighborhood. . Have you cried for the
Philippines? I have cried for my country several
times.. I also cried for the Philippines because of so many
poor people. I have been to the New Bilibid
prison. What made me sad in the prison were the
prisoners who do not have any love for their country.
They go to mass and work for Church. They pray
However, they do not love the Philippines.
I talked to two prisoners at the maximum-security compound,
and both of them said that they would leave the
Philippines right after they are released from the
prison. They said that they would start a new life in other
countries and never come back to the Philippines.
Many Koreans have a great love for Korea so that
we were able to share our wealth with our neighborhood.
The owners of factory and company were distributed their
profit to their employees fairly so that employees could
buy what they needed and saved money for the
future and their children.
When I was in Korea , I had a very strong faith and
wanted to be a priest. However, when I came to the Philippines ,
I completely lost my faith.
I was very confused when I saw many unbelievable
situations in the Philippines . Street kids always make me sad,
and I see them everyday. The Philippines is the only Catholic
country in Asia , but there are too many poor people here..
People go to church every Sunday to pray, but nothing has
My parents came to the Philippines last week and
saw this situation. They told me that Korea was much poorer
than the present Philippines when they were young.
They are so sorry that there are so many beggars and street kids.
When we went to Pasangjan, I forced my parents
to take a boat because it would fun. However,
they were not happy after taking a boat. They said that they
would not take the boat again because they were sympathized the
boatmen, for the boatmen were very poor and had a
small frame. Most of people just took a boat and enjoyed it.
But, my parents did not enjoy it because of love for them.
My mother who has been working for Catholic Church
since I was very young told me that if we just go to
mass without changing ourselves, we are not
Catholic indeed. Faith should come with action.
She added that I have to love Filipinos and do good things
for them because all of us are same and have received a great
love from God. I want Filipinos to love their
neighborhood and country as much as they love God
so that the Philippines will be well off..
I am sure that love is the keyword, which Filipinos
should remember. We cannot change the sinful structure at once.
It should start from person. Love must start in everybody,
in a small scale and have to grow. A lot of
things happen if we open up to love. Let's put away
our prejudices and look at our worries with our new eyes.
I discover that every person is worthy to be
loved. Trust in love, because it makes changes possible.
Love changes you and me.. It changes people, contexts and
relationships. It changes the world. Please love your
neighborhood and country.
Jesus Christ said that whatever we do to others we
do to Him. In the Philippines , there is God for people who
are abused and abandoned. There is God who is crying for love.
If you have a child, teach them how to love the Philippines.
Teach them why they have to love their neighborhood and country.
You already know that God also will be very happy if you love others..
That's all I really want to ask you Filipinos.
