What is being a Pinoy all
about--aside from
pointing with our lips and
having an action star for
our President? We talked
among ourselves and we
tried to come up with the
100 best things about
being a Pinoy..
We hope that these will
make you smile and will
make you laugh..Above all, we sincerely hope that
these things will make
you proud of being a
Pinoy ..
