I am a Filipino and I am proud of it, so much that in a country where republican sentiments reign supreme and the virtues of democracy are lectured from inside the classroom out to the streets, I keep on preaching my devoutness to royalty and the virtues in stands for. Lol.
Enough with the sentiments. I am just happy that another royal hailed my fellowmen.
After Prince Philip gave his “joke” of appreciation to Filipino nurses in London, now, it’s Prince Faisal’s turn to commend Filipinos for their “efficiency and hard work” that “has contributed to the national development of both Saudi Arabia and the Philippines.”
