    Pilipinas/Pilipino: Walang Kultura

    Nag-uusap kami ng Bosnian bestfriend ko kahapon. Sabi nya ang Pilipinas daw walang kultura, walang identity.

    Agree ba kayo o hindi?

    Ang tanong eh, nape-preserve pa ba ang kultura natin? Eh pawala na nga. Compare nyo ang Pilipinas sa katabing bansa natin.

    Kapag sinabing Pilipinas, ano ang tumatatak sa isip ng mga banyaga?

    Adobo, pansit, lumpia, lechon, Pacquiao, Charice, and mail-order brides?

    Ang tanong ko naman - Ano ba ang kultura sa Bosnia?

    siguro kasi were not as Asian as our neighbours, like di tayo gumagamit ng chop sticks, wala tayong mga pagodas or asian temples, yung religious practices natin iba,

    we're colonized kasi, kaya nawala yung storng Asian influence, pero we've kept naman what had become of our culture,

    na preserve natin yung century old churches and schools natin, we have monthly festivals and fiestas, we solemnly celebrate our religious practices like Holy Week, All Saints day and Christmas,

    I think I prefer ours than our neighbours culture.

    kung to please lang yung foreigners na, di na tayo authentic like our asian neighbours, I dont care what they think.

    ano sinagot mo? pumayag ka na lang basta basta na may mamintas sa kultura mo?

    sinagot mo dapat dun: "ignorante ka ba? lahat ng bansa at lugar may kanya kanyang kultura at kahit anong sabihin mo.. imposibleng walang kultura sa isang lugar... pwedeng maiba pero hindi pwedeng mawalan."

    my gosh.. i just hope you are not another example of a filipino who believes in anything a non-filipino says.

    Kahit ano namang grupo ng tao, may kultura. Nagkakaiba na lang sa kung ano ang expectations mo tungkol sa kultura nila, kaya mo sinasabi o tinatanong kung may kultura ba.

    Kaya ang tanong Maccie, anong kultura ba ang inaasahan mo sana?

  22. #14
    Let's take Christianity for example. Christianity was brought to us by the Spaniards. But do you think our Christianity here is the same with the one in Spain? Of course not. Undeniably, our culture is greatly influenced by other cultures, because remember, our country's history consists of a history of resisting invasions- from the Spanish to the Americans to the Japanese. Kaya mo siguro nasasabi na wala tayong sariling pagkakilanlan dahil halos buong kultura natin any naimpluwensiyahan ng mga banyaga. Syempre di maiiwasan 'yan dahil tumagal din sila sa bansa natin. Sa Espanyol pa lang, namalagi sila dito nang halos 350 na taon. Di porket maraming impluwensya ang ibang bansa sa atin ay ibig sabihin wala na tayong sariling kultura.

    And not only the influences our colonizers have on us. Bago pa man dumating ang mga Espanyol, may sarili ng pamumuhay ang mga tao sa Pilipinas. 'Yang mga paniniwala/ pamahiin natin sa mga aswang, galing pa 'yan sa pre-colonial years.

    now that you mentioned Christianity and having our own flavor, di ba may ati-atihan tayo kapag fiesta or senakulo? hindi ba kultura yang tradisyong ginagawa natin? yung simbang gabi, na ginagawa sa madaling araw kultura din yan ah.

    at yung pag-mamano, kultura din yan at yung pag-sabi ng po at opo.

    baka si maccie un-cultured kaya akala nya siguro walang culture ang pinoy tapos gagawing scapegoat yung bosnian friend nya

    Well, inantay ko munang mag heat-up ang argument before ako magrereply kung ano ang sinabi ko sa kanya...

    Hindi naman nya sinabi na walang kultura, ang sabi nya eh hindi kasing strong ng neighboring countries natin. If you will ask foreigners what they think of the Philippines they should say beaches, nice sceneries.. but what about the people and culture??? They are clueless.. When you say Thailand, they will think of golden temples, golden costumes, floating market, cultural dances, religious ceremonies.. Korea - Korean temples, yin-yang etc etc.. and so on and so forth....

    But what do we have????

    This is my reply to him...

    1. The Philippines is actually young, our "official" history started 16th century.. compared to Thailand, China, Cambodia etc.... which they had early civilization
    2. We are colonized by Spaniards while the Philippines "then" was disintegrated.
    3. We are composed of 7000+ islands, we dont have a centralized culture.. each island/tribe has a culture or tradition of its own. This makes it difficult to integrate a whole nation. It is only in the early 1900s even that we had our official langauge at least.
    4. Filipinos were brainwashed to make us believe that being westernized is the best that we could be.


    When I was asked.. "What is the trademark of the Philippines?"
    I said.. hmm... "Rizal Monument, beaches, Manny Pacquiao, Charice Pempengco.. Shamcey Supsup.." hehe joke


    Sa inyo, ano ang trademark ng Philippines na tumatatak sa isip ng mundo?????

    Ano culture nila..

    Well a lot actually.. they have intensive religious festivals (I witnessed how they celebrate Christmas and Easter, very traditional they wore costumes). They also have ceremonies preparing foods for the feasts, they dance and play native instruments during grape harvest. I saw their not so colorful costumes (mostly white) while performing folk dances. Their "modern" music still sounds traditional... atbp

    Ipinagmalaki ko ang festivities natin during holy week, but they deep inside alam ko at alam nyo din na pawala na ang practices natin during holy week.. Aminin nyo.....

    Lahat naman ng bansa may kultura,, pero meron ba tayong kultura o vision in mind lang naman about the Philippines at Filipinos na tumatak sa isip ng mga foreigners...

    When they think of the Philippines, what do they think of?
