The Proud Post

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Asian countries have many reasons to be proud.

China is proud because they're now the world's largest exporter and is fast becoming the next superpower.

Singapore is proud because they now ranked second just behind Switzerland in the Global Competitiveness Report 2011-2012 and all their universities entered the World's Top 100.

South Korea is proud because they rose from a war-trodden ruins to the 13th largest economy in the world and their Samsung and LG are now respectively the world's first and second largest makers of LCD and LED TV's.

Malaysia is proud because they have the Petronas Towers and they're close to becoming a first-world country thus becoming the next destination for OFW's.

Vietnam is proud because they did a great job attracting foreign investors and is now experiencing rapid economic growth.

Cambodia is proud because they made a great deal of improvement in the Global Competitiveness Report and is now close to overtaking the Philippines.

Philippines is proud because we have Pacquiao who, other than being the first eight-division world champion in boxing, also became a recording artist, congressman and Sergeant Major despite having no credible background in singing, politics and military warfare. And if Pacquiao retires, who's next? Charice?
