Spelled with a "PH" and Filipino is spelled with an "F?" Im Filipino. Yes I need to brush up on my history.

Because "PH" makes things cooler. For example "fat" turns to "phat." Nahmean?

Philippines is a name given by the Americans. The original name was Filipinas named after some Spaniard king, Felipe or something.

I like how it's called... THE Philippines.

The Turkey.
The Japan.
The Sweden.

It just doesn't flow.

It's like New Jersey is the only "New" state, that you can drop the "New" part.

New Hampshire.
New Mexico.
New York.

Ano ito?

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.
