why do probinsyanos move to the city?

In the province, everything grows everywhere. There's plenty of food. Why do they choose to move to the city when they can easily live off of the land in the province?? Is it because they want to have a nice cell phone and computer??

    There are more opportunities in the city. Nope, you can't live off the land especially if you don't own the land you work in.

  • the Philippines is one of the most fertile places on Earth. Everything grows without effort. Anybody who starves in the Philippines must be lazy or not paying attention to all the edible things around them. I think in the city there are less edible things for free

    People cannot survive on food alone. They need money too.

  • ang sarap kaya sa probinsya , andaming NPA.
  • Because if you are young, say in your 20s, you would want to get away from the monotonous rural life. But later on, you will be planning to retire sa probinsya.

    what is wrong with mountainous? I quite enjoy the mountains life
  • Few jobs, most of jobs are concentrated in major cities

    High cost of living and utilities, we pay 2x the electricity cost than meralco

    Yes, there's just one problem here. Land is expensive. you also need land and irrigation to grow your own food. and in the dry season, how will you grow your own food without rain in the summer months. implementation of the land reform also sucks

    well, nobody needs electricity. The problem with Filipinos is that that they think that electricity, a computer, a cell phone, and a TV are necessities. No, food is the main necessity and it's plentiful in the Philippines, unlike in Africa.

    How would you participate in Pex without electricity and a computer?

    So why don't you settle in the boondocks instead of Trump Towers in the city?

    watching tv and listening to music were already important hobbies for decades,

    masyado naman boring kung pati TV and radio, wala.

    iba naman yung buhay probinsya sa buhay caveman, ano yun "Naked and Afraid", :glee:.

    with matching lulubog sa sapa to clean after going to the toilet in a self dug ground hole somewhere? :hiya:

    that's so primitive naman na.

    umm.. ts.. try to live in the province or a small town.. the whole town or province is usually owned by one or a few families who are well entrenched with their goons and henchmen.. if you do not have the correct last name.. then you will be a farmer with no other opportunities. probinsyanos are not really leaving their provinces.. rather escaping.

    you need to experience how oppressive it can get in these places far from Manila... maybe you can move their and start a rebellion against the established families... help spread opportunity if you think it's all nice and easy.
  • Monotonous, mountainous :lol: nagpapatawa tong si tddyakol

    I guess people just want to do more, to have more. Insatiability is human nature.
