Now I realized and experienced about the things that people say about pinoy discrimination.. Before I was like.. NAH! That's not ture and Not all... But now, I definitely believe it.
I was in asian country (which I will not mention the name) last february to see the beauty of their beaches there, cause I've heard a lot of beautiful things of a one resort so before going home to Philippines, I need some proof about those positive talks about it. But when me and my friend was there I was so deeply disappointed. They hold us at Immigration. I was like WHAT WAS GOING ON?! They keep on holding, and reading our passport. Lot of things they questioned till we end up in the office. In there, a man interviewed us so many things like, what we gonna do there, are we going to work there, why blah blah... The fuck was wrong with it? They underestimate us. We just want to go swimming duh! The worst was we were just the only one they hold because we are just the only filipino who visits there. Most of them are foreigners, singaporean, chinese I think etc. and look WHY WE GONNA WORK IN THERE HUH?
I was wondering why only us? Because we are Filipino? Do we have no right to join the fun? I keep on telling the man that we are just only here to go swimming and after 3days we will be back home?! WHAT'S WRONG WITH IT?! Do we look like something that would harm in their country?! I WAS REALLY REALLY PISSED OFF!! I mean...WHY ARE THEY LIKE THAT?! SEE? thinking negative things even we'd done nothing wrong.. If it's wrong to visit there then I'm off to that! We just want to have some fun.. We show them our hotel accomodation, tickets back to phil. and they said they'll gonna check the hotel if we were there... Then I said "Sure you can check every minute if you want, no problem with me." See?
After a long conversation, I think 1 hour plus, we paid the penalty something he said then he gave us a 1month stay.. But as what I've said we will just be there for only 3days. When we get back after 3days, I saw those guys from immigration, they keep on smiling to us. And I was said like "SEE?! NOW WHAT?!". Then someone talked to us and I said.."SEE? I TOLD YOU? IM NOT A LIAR. DON'T GENERALIZE FILIPINO". Then I said "If you go to philippines just contact me :D"..
But you know what till now I'm still so confused about what happened. I'm so blind about what filipino done why they're like that. I mean, what's wrong with the world?!
For me about what happened was an INSULT!
What if one day that thing will also happen to you?! Filipino are degraded in other country :(
SAD BUT TRUE!
