Ito ang kahanga-hangang ugaling Pilipino na nakaka galak...Sana hwag mawala ito sa atin!

Dito sa bayan ni Juan, may isang kaugalian
Isang daing sa kapitbahay, buong bayan dumaramay
Dito sa bayan ni Juan, may mga kalalakihan
Sa oras na kailangan, bumubuo ng bayanihan
Bayanihan dito sa bayan ni Juan
Isang daing mo lamang, ikaw ay tutulungan
Bayan ni Juan uso ang bayanihan
Lahat sila'y kasali, d'yan mo mapupuri

Huwag magtaka kung meron kang makita
Bahay na lumalakad, sa gitna ng inyong kalsada
Bayanihan dito sa bayan ni Juan
Isang daing mo lamang, ikaw ay tutulungan
Bayan ni Juan uso ang bayanihan
Lahat sila'y kasali, d'yan mo mapupuri
Huwag magtaka, kung meron kang makita
Bahay na lumalakad, sa gitna ng inyong kalsada
Huwag kang magtataka, kung meron kang makita
Bahay na lumalakad, sa gitna ng inyong kalsada
Huwag kang magtataka, kung meron kang makita
Bahay na lumalakad, sa gitna ng inyong kalsada
Huwag kang magtataka, kung meron kang makita
Bahay na lumalakad, sa gitna ng inyong kalsada
Huwag kang magtataka, kung meron kang makita
Bahay na lumalakad, sa gitna ng inyong kalsada

Why do you think people who are living the "alternative" lifestyle are the ones who sometimes sing the truth? Francis M also had OK lyrics.

For a country that claims :bayanihan" as part of its culture, it's difficult to find this in practice.

People patronizing products that have been manufactured abroad over its local counterpart.  Surely our country would progress faster if people buy Philippine - made products.

It's a chicken - egg problem. Products will not improve if nobody buys it. Nobody buys it because its low quality. In this information age, what specific product made in the Philippines is worth buying? Is there?

What about Rice? Why the heck are we importing? It's because the people in high positions in DAR have something to gain if we import. Paperworks not signed, purchases not made, farmer trainings not done, farmer loans no where... so we import, and where there's import there's corruption. Left and right there's corruption.

May pag asa pa ba ang Pilipinas? I'm just asking. Parang lahat ng may capability na umalis ng Pilipinas, umalis na eh. It's just the politicians (rich) and the poor (slaves) left in the PH. Lahat ng middle class walang power (karapatan) sa Pilipinas. Meron pa ba?

Brother inkjet printers.  It was only recently that I'd discovered it was made in the Philippines.  Bought one simply because it's Philippine - made.

Point taken in reference to the chicken - egg thing, but at the end of the day, all it takes is for someone to take a stand and commit to buying Philippine made products.  Toothpaste.  Soap.  Shampoo.  I check the labels for Philippine - made variants.  Coffee.  I gun for local coffee grounds.  Restaurants have an opportunity to make a positive impact on the agri business sector, but some of these buy imported beef, chicken & pork.  Granted imported products are cheaper than its local counterparts, but as I've stated, it's a committed choice.  I run a meat shop and I've committed to selling only locally - sourced beef, chicken & pork.

May pag asa pa ba ang Pilipinas?  I was asked this question by a stranger, who was seated nearby at Starbucks, Cash & Carry.  He was an OFW, who was once based in the US.  My straight answer, "Kung tayo mga sariling Pilipino ay wala nang pag asa sa sariling bansa, eh di paano ang bansa natin?"  I'm a Filipino - Chinese.  Born & raised in the Philippines.  My loyalty's to the Philippines and yes ... I still have hopes for this country ... Sorry, to disappoint you.  😃

Agree with you on the current situation of rice.  

Crap.  From a rice - exporting country to a rice - importing country.  Heads should have rolled for this.

I love your reply, every bit of it!

I'm sure the printer you bought will last the same as the other brands.

How do we teach people to make a committed choice? There was once a campaign Proudly Philippine Made, it's gone now. It was headed by Conception Industries. I think there's a way to get the big players involved. But the sons and grandsons of these tycoons are so focused on making money, not saving the Philippines.

Maybe we should separate "love for country" from "happiness from buying worthwhile products". You just cant beat China. Or maybe we analyse these issues from a global perspective and stop having a country mentality. Go for global pride? Save the planet? Preserve cultures?

Gutom lang siguro ako 🙂

Agree on you on FM, I was able to rub shoulder with him in one of the pamorningan session during the Fiesta in Jhocson St infront of NU, Very down to earth. Musicians tends to look at what the society is going through...sometimes they get inspired by how good or how bad the situation is and make beautiful and meaningful music! Kaleidescope World has some hidden meaning on it.

Bayanihan is widely practice during difficult times such as calamities and typhoons but for me it does not have to be during those times only it should be a constant practice as you said. You are right we have as a nation support locally branded,manufactured and made products...it helps in sustainability,availability of the said commodity and protects the local economy from the influx of cheap yet unreliable imports...take the shoe manufacturing Mecca of the Philippines,Marikina and how it suffers from the influx of cheap China footwear...isa lang ito sa mga example ng marami pang sector na naghihikaos na dahil walang suporta ang tao.

Add to the fact that we thought or to put it lightly trained the Thailanders and the Vietnamese rice tech,farmers etc in IRRA in Los Banos,Laguna. Kaya minsan hinde ko rin masisi yung mga nagsasabi na Tayong mga Pinoy ay ang ''SICKMAN OF ASIA'' eh!

Hinde ka gutom...actually napaka valid ng point mo sir...Imagine if each and every made in China product has a ''PHILIPPINE MADE'' parts/components...eh di wow di ba? Sadly sa ngayon black sand na lang galing Norte na illegal pa atang tinitira ng China yung components na PH made...di pa na crecredit sa atin! hehehe

"May mas malaki tayong kalaban sa mga Amerikano - ang ating sarili."

A quote from the movie Heneral Luna.  Relevant then.  Relevant now.
