My husband told me that our good friend Laza had a Filipina acquaintance in California last week. Guess what the Filipina (a Tagalog) said to our friend? “Be careful with Pinays from the southern part of the Philippines. They just want greencards”.
This statement just blew me away. I do not have the slightest idea that the Tagalogs have negative perception of the Bisayas. I mean, are we that little in their eyes? I just replied, “You know what, I am tired of depending ourselves especially when a Pinay herself belittle her own people”. Anyway, you decide people.
