All I can say is that, I am happy enough to see my fellow 'kababayan's abroad' I even asked them the same question if we came from the same country. Then if he/she acknowledged as YES then it feels so good. Then started to have conversation and speaking in the same language. BUT sad to say that not all responds in a very good way. I met some that are not polite or don't even acknowledge that they are from the same country as me. Scary and I do not know why!
People are different but I cannot understand why they need to hide and they need to act like super heroes. They changed a lot. Some don't even say hi... I just replied with a smile but marked on my mind that they are not worth saying hi. So it would be the first and last hi to that person. I am very good to those who are good. It is not good to be super kind.
Well, well... I just hope that people will acknowledge and give some respect to their fellows!
