Feel Free to Add philippines just take note of the numbering



  1. The exotic jeepney is a post-war creation inspired by the GI
    jeeps that the American soldiers brought to the country in the 1940s.
    Enterprising Filipinos salvaged the surplus engines and came out unique
    vehicles of art.

  2. Short distance and feeder trips could not be more exciting than
    via Philippine quick transports – the tricycle, a motorcycle with asidecar, and the pedicab, a bicycle with a sidecar.

  3. The world’s longest underground river system accessible to man can be found at the St. Paul National Park in the province of Palawan.

4. The Philippines, a democratic country in Southeast Asia that declared
its independence from Spain on June 12, 1898 but only obtained its full
sovereignty on July 4, 1946, has a total land area covering 300,000
square kilometers (115,830 sq. miles) and distributed in 7,107 islands.
According to the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority,
15,854,922 hectares or 53 percent of the country's total land area were
forestlands while the remaining 14,145,078 hectares or 47 percent were
alienable and disposable lands as of December 2000. The three major
island groupings are Luzon (7 regions, 38 provinces), Visayas (3 regions,
16 provinces), and Mindanao (6 regions, 25 provinces).

5. According to the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), there are 78 language groupings and over 500 dialects in the Philippines. While Filipino is regarded as the national language, it was mainly based on Tagalog (from the local phrase taga-ilog meaning residents near the river) language. The main language of instruction is English and the country's laws are also recorded in this language. Filipinos are said to be the world's second largest English-speaking people, after the Americans. This, of course, is subject to debate since only a few Filipinos actually talk in English on the street.

9. The term Pilipinas, as distinguished from Filipinas, made its first public appearance in a stamp issued during the Japanese Occupation of Manila in World War II. Not until 1962 did the Philippine government make a similar change from Filipinas to Pilipinas in officially describing the nation.

infections, such as respiratory tract infections, middle ear

of dollars. Neither Aguilar nor the Philippine government received
royalties.

Population experts claim it would take 25 years before the Philippine
population reaches its peak.

I Found this bit funny....

"Chorva” was derived from the Greek word cheorvamus, which means “for lack of the right word to say” or “in place of something you want to express but cannot verbalize.
