The Philippines is a country of high quality products. The evidence: we export them. From agricultural crops to different kinds, we have so many things to offer. Though we have our identity as “Filipinos”, we cannot deny the evident fact that we highly influenced by Westerners and even our Asian neighbors. Though we have so many good products to share, we still prefer buying and using products from other countries. What really is the reason for this? The answer is obviously colonial mentality.
Being a Filipino, we have all the skills needed to come up with high quality products. We cannot say that we love our country if we cannot patronize and enjoy every good thing that comes from it. Let us have a good perspective of what we purchase. We should help boost our economy because we will also benefit from it by patronizing our own products.
