the farthest place i've been to inside the country (i have'nt been outside yet) is a planeride down south, about 1.5 hours. the city is called dumaguete in the island of negros occidental, part of the visayan group of island of the philippines.

located there is siliman university, one of the oldest university in the philippines and its so huge!

if you know the island of cebu then its just a stonethrow away.
I'll slice you...
I'll dice you...
I'll chop you into pieces!! hiyah!

The farthest place I've been to is the USA, and I'm still there. Life is full of suprises. I never thought of living in the USA, but I do. I never thought of dropping out of college, but I did.... :cry:

I often imagine the life in the USA.but the friends from there said they were not fond of it.

I don't know what happen.but in my opinion,at least america is better than China.

So I said to myself,I will try to go there.

Hi, GreatJim, I also think America is better than China. I want to to America in the near futher.Maybe this is only a dream. Who can help me achieve my dream? The answer is: no one can help you, only myself.

Hi there…
Really I feel bad when I hear any one says that USA better than his Country…
I don’t mean that I don’t like USA but I have to love my Country even if poor Country because it remembers me good and bad situation I faced I don’t know how can I explain that feeling especially when u be with ur family and friends but if u go to USA u have to work too much (we as foreign people in USA) and the main thing in ur live will be the money….maybe the live in USA very nice …but still I insist that I have to love my Country…
This is my opinion …is there any comment.??.!!!! :roll:

You are so right Kimo! While I was reading the posts above yours, I felt so sad. Even though our own country is not perfect, it's still the place where we were born, and where we had a lot of experiences as well. Too bad that some people cannot appreciate that. I know that everyone wants to look for a better future somewhere else, but does not mean that your country is worse than other.
Anyways, I wouldn't like to travel to USA because everybody wants to go there so it is not THAT interesting then. I think I'd prefer going to Canada or Austrelia.
Guys, USA is not wonderland. You could have a bright future even in your own country.
I believe that if you really want something out of life, you really have to sacrifice and work hard. Everything is possible when there's decisiveness. :)

Maybe me, I´m from México, next to USA, I have an apartment alone, if you want to come only get money for your ticket plane, and food, I offer the apartment. you can cooking your meals there. México is cheaper for tourist.
