#3 You actually know you’re within the Philippines when a stray canine walks in the midst of an ongoing Catholic church service and no person kicks the canine out even when it pees, as a result of it’s not a giant deal and nobody cares. Individuals think about the mass service.
#4 What three phrases to summarize the Philippines: Tropical, Resilient, Colourful
