yeah, may be people should focus more on what a person can do and not by the way they look or not by the place where they came from. lucky for my uncle who went to australia. he married a filipina there and he was able to grab a good paying job. he is working in a advertising firm now.

with regards to europe. europeans don't discriminate brown people. my aunt told me that they like asians too. my aunts are nurses there for 28 years already and they were able to marry french men. and take note, they've been with their husband's for 25 years now.

but until now, i keep on wondering why is it that it is so hard for other nationalities to go to the UNited States. even if they are just applying for a tourist visa, their application are still being declined.
