I feel sad for your country. I am a Filipino, and I can relate to this. The Philippines was given to US by Spain after the Spanish-American war and even though we gained our independence after world war 2, we were never able to stand up again and truly release ourselves from the grip of foreign powers.
Those who live in Puerto Rico can certainly relate to this as, in a way we share a similar history. However, it is not of that post that I am writing about but of the blog My Attendance Slip itself. I started dropping in on that blog and checking out the various posts and found them to be interesting. Interesting in that it portrays the life of a working Philippino nurse in a country on the other side of the world and you get to see the similarities and differences between our cultures. Check out some of the posts regarding work and you begin to see what I mean.
The blog merit’s a visit if not several and most certainly a link in your blogroll if you are a blogger.
