nursing student studying litreature of the philipines tomorrow is my finals i need answers so please help me A Filipino may denationalize himself but not his stomach. He may travel over the seven seas, the five continents and the two hemispheres and lose the savor of home, forget his identity and believe himself a citizen of the world. But he remains- gastronomically, at least- always a Filipino. For, if in no other way, the Filipino loves his country with his stomach."It seemed to me that the big deal is the overall feeling of “no big deal”, if you get my drift. It kinda gives this impression that you could go there and leave your cares in the world. The place has a hippie vibe to it, with people wearing whatever, doing whatever, minding their own business and having a grand time. There’s food, finds, and fun. I liked it. I liked it a lot.We ended up staying at the New Merry V Guesthouse for our first night since we had a hard time looking for Tavee Guesthouse, where we initially planned to stay. The other options such as the Lamphu House, Green Guesthouse, and the Rambuttri Village Inn were fully booked. It really pays to book your accommodation in advance to save yourself from minor inconveniences. New Merry V Guesthouse has very basic amenities, pretty much getting what you paid for: a place to rest after a long day of serious walking and wandering. The good thing about us ending up here is that we found ourselves in Phra Arthit Road, where the Phra Arthit Pier is within short walking distance. Just cross the road and look for the sign post with a boat sign; better yet, aim for the Navalai Resort which will lead you directly to the pier
