    About :

    An interestingly beautiful theme this week! Thank you @lasembradora for choosing "Orgullo Patrio" which means "National or Homeland Pride" in English. I actually had a struggle deciding as I had two songs on my mind that fits perfectly this week. Both were kinda' easy to play on the guitar too, but I had to pick just one.

    As a result, I chose the song "Pinoy Ako" by Orange and Lemons. It was one of the most successful OPM ( Original Pilipino Music ) songs of the 2000s back home ( Philippines ) and it was associated with one of the most popular primetime TV shows, Pinoy Big Brother. You couldn't turn on the radio or see them on music channels for months after their debut without hearing/performing the song. It was very catchy and played practically everywhere! The song spread throughout the country, eventually making Orange & Lemons famous.

    By the way, the term "Pinoy" refers to the people of the Philippines and is a slang term for Filipino. When referring to a female, the term Pinay is used, while Pinoy can also refer to both male and female. In English, ako means "me," hence combining the words "Pinoy Ako" implies "I am a Filipino."

    I chose the song "Pinoy Ako" because I like the meaning and how cheerful it is. It is straightforward and emphasises the importance of being genuine through trusting in oneself and accepting one's flaws. It also motivates Filipinos to be unique and proud no matter where they come from, where they go, or what difficulties they may face. It depicts how a Filipino can proudly show the world what it means to be a Pinoy and what a Pinoy can do by keeping true to oneself rather than succumbing to the expectations of others.

    Lyrics

    Lahat tayo, mayro'ng pagkakaiba
    Sa tingin pa lang ay makikita na
    Iba't ibang kagustuhan
    Ngunit isang patutunguhan

    Gabay at pagmamahal ang hanap mo
    Magbibigay ng halaga sa iyo
    Nais mong ipakilala
    Kung sino ka man talaga

    Pinoy, ikaw ay Pinoy
    Ipakita sa mundo
    Kung ano ang kaya mo
    Ibang-iba ang Pinoy
    Huwag kang matatakot
    Ipagmalaki mo
    Pinoy ako, Pinoy tayo

    'Pakita mo ang tunay at kung sino ka
    Mayro'n mang masama at maganda
    Wala namang perpekto
    Basta magpakatotoo
    Oh, oh

    Gabay at pagmamahal ang hanap mo
    Magbibigay ng halaga sa iyo
    Nais mong ipakilala
    Kung sino ka man talaga

    Pinoy, ikaw ay Pinoy
    Ipakita sa mundo
    Kung ano ang kaya mo
    Ibang-iba ang Pinoy
    Huwag kang matatakot
    Ipagmalaki mo
    Pinoy ako, Pinoy tayo

    Talagang ganyan ang buhay
    Dapat ka nang masanay
    Wala ring mangyayari
    Kung laging nakikibagay
    Ipakilala ang 'yong sarili
    Ano man sa 'yo'y mangyayari
    Ang lagi mong iisipin
    Kayang-kayang gawin

    Pinoy, ikaw ay Pinoy
    Ipakita sa mundo
    Kung ano ang kaya mo
    Ibang-iba ang Pinoy
    Huwag kang matatakot
    Ipagmalaki mo
    Pinoy ako, Pinoy tayo
