What do you think of those Filipino teenagers who have migrated or transferred to a foreign country and change their ways and behavior just to fit in??? ( I, for one, have recently migrated here in the UK and I oppose to the thing said above... many fil teenagers here have really left all the manners and values education behind them just to be in crowd with the white locals..)

Please share your thoughts...

i agree... we really try to fit in... but in reality... if you think about it.. we're still filipino.. especially when we spent more time in the philiipines than in abroad.. it'll be hard to change our filipino values in life.. though we tend to change.. we still do filipino stuff unconsciously...

blahh,, as always, discrimination, racism, etc. what do you expect? so you must go stereotyping(go where you belong) to avoid being treated like following. so guys, don't judge. if you have a friend, especially a "balikbayan", it's obvious that they will act weird because of the experience and environment that they've been through and believe me, it's not what you think it is(ex: being the only ASIAN in school). you must have the guts just to stare forward in front of many WHITE people and hear words like "DIE CHINESE COMMUNIST!(mistaken for having kinky eyes), or "ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT!"( famous racial slur for the mexicans because some are crossing the U.S. border illegally) because filipinos have the same skin features as mexicans. well, im just telling you that life on abroad(as an immigrant) sucks especially if your a teenager. so i guess some pinoys here just want to work, invest on the philippines, retire, then FLY back home.

I migrated to US November last year. I'm feeling great to what I am now. Actually you dont need to change you attitude I think its about what path you take and whats your priority. and my priority is to be who i am not to be who i am not :] i wont forget my values and will still keep up traditions and my manners^^ i wish all filipinos will do the same :]

P.S.
I MISS U LAS PINAS CITY!

EXACTLY, you just recently migrated, therefore, you still have not adopted to your environment. Give it about 5 years and up and you'll start to ADOPT (which is the proper term).

I've been living in the US for 10 years now, and me and my siblings are still proud to be Filipinos, albeit an Americanized ones. I'm very lucky to be living in a community where more than a 50% are Filipinos so I never lost that part of me. I mean we even have 2 jollibee/Chowking/Red ribbon nearby (within a 20 mile radius even and one is in the mall). I eat Filipino food almost everyday along with other cuisine from around the world. There's even TFC and the internet so it's easy to find out what's happening in the Philippines.
But you can't really fault those who as you said "changed their ways" because they have to assimilate into the new environment that they are in. They were put in those circumstances, and they have to deal with it because in the long run, they moved to get a better life. I'm not saying that the Philippines is a bad place to live in or anything, but the people who moved did have a reason why they left which is mostly to get a better life. Especially the teenagers, those years are the most vital part of growing up,and no matter how reluctant or how you despise the new environment, it will be lonely, and of course, you have to adapt to live better. i'm sure they are still proud to be Filipinos.
