Be Happy

            Listening to Secretary of Tourism Ramon Jimenez explain the rational of the DOT "It's More Fun in the Philippines" campaign, I was reminded of our own generation's "Don't Worry, Be Happy" slogan.  I couldn't agree more with Secretary Jimenez that the attraction of the Philippines, more than the natural and physical endowments, is the Filipino people.  It is more fun in the Philippines because it is more fun to be with Filipinos.  With very few exceptions, we Filipinos are fun to be with.  We exude cheerfulness, optimism, hope and friendliness. We are not far from the Bhutanese, who are the happiest people on this planet.

Thanks to the continuing growth of the Philippines population, Filipinos are in more than 100 countries all over the world, contributing much-needed foreign echange and purchasing power to the Philippine economy and fostering the human and spiritual development of the most diverse of peoples and cultures on this planet.
