Being happy despite facing a challenging situation is just one of the many exceptional characteristics of a Filipino. Even those Filipinos working abroad are portraying a one of a kind determination that makes them excel amidst other nationalities.
A video of two Filipino men eating seems ordinary until you realize that they are sitting on the cold snow – it is snowing in their country yet they are sitting, without wearing anything, as though they are still in the Philippines.
It is obvious, because of the people passing by at their back wearing thick winter clothes, that it is very cold in the country where they are in.
Based on the video, it is clear that the weather in that country is really cold as the snow already accumulated the entire area, yet the two men came out, wearing no shirt, and sat on the snow as if they are simply eating under the sun.
In the caption of the video, it says “Winter ka lang, Pinoy kami.” It just goes to show that Filipinos, no matter where they are, always looks at the positive side no matter how bad the situation is.
Salute to all Overseas Filipino Workers all over the world who are patiently adapting to the culture, people, environment and even weather of other countries just to provide a better future for their families in the Philippines. You are indeed our modern-day heroes.
