There is a very interesting commentary on the state of the Philippines by Niña Terol-Zialcita that was posted on the Definitely Filipino blog. IMHO, it's thought-provoking, and sadly, I've heard my ex-pat Filipino friends moaning about the same issues Ms. Terol-Zialcita brought up in her piece.
Read it and let me know what you think. Can the Philippines ever rise up above the rampant government corruption and persistent poverty and the like experienced there? I'd like to think so.
