Bayanihan is one of the proud values of Filipinos. In a small community/barrio, townsmen help out each other in times of need. I am still a Filipino apart from my fascination with anything foreign. I love traveling and i have left my country numerous times this year. I bought a really really good book 1001 Reasons to Stay in the Philippines by Isagani R. Cruz and Lydia B. Echauz. And i think my fellow Filipinos should buy it too whether you're thinking of migrating to another country or if you're simply nationalistic! It's a good read and it helped me decide if i should leave soon or stay in the Philippines
