  • Addresing Xenocentrism: Love Your Own Culture
  • Oh really? I'll totally go! Thanks for inviting me!
  • Hey Maria! You should go to my house this Saturday. It's mybirthday!
  • After Jessica left, Maria was thinking about what kind of outfit she would wear because she knew that the party is going to be filled with rich people. After all, Jessica is also a rich girl.
  • Hmmmmm, the party is probably going to be filled with people wearing outfits and accessories from luxury brands. What should I wear to fit in and impress them?
  • After a lot of thinking, Maria decided that she would wear an outfit from luxury brands too. But the problem is that she doesn't have any outfits of those type and she doesn't have money to buy some either. So she called her friend to help her with her problem.
  • Oh no! I don't have those types of clothes, and I have no money to buy them either! The people at the party will think that I'm poor, lame, and a bum! I should call Rosalina. Maybe she can help me with my problem.
  • Rosalina is also a Filipino girl who is an international student in America that came with Maria. She picked up Maria's call and helped her with her problem.
  • Why? Are they bullying you?
  • What do you want?
  • That's it? You xenocentric girl, just use what your mother sent you!
  • Ew, those Philippine-branded clothes? They're gonna laugh at me!
  • Help me, Rosalina! I'm gonna be humiliated in Jessica's birthday party!
  • No, I just don't have beautiful branded clothes to wear.
  • Learn to love the products of your own culture. They are beautiful! What's more, by wearing those clothes, you are helping the producers in the Philippines, and you are also representing our country.
  • No problem. I'm glad I could help.
  • I haven't really thought of it that way, thank you for telling me, Rosalina!
  • When Maria finally arrived at Jessica's birthday party, she was surprised that people actually liked her outfit.
