relationships of other country.
before and during WW2
China, Japan, Malaysia and Indonesia: they used to trade alot with Philippines. They continuously trade until Spain came.
Spain: He colonized Philippines for 333 years. He also let her trade with Mexico, which makes the Philippines and Mexico into good relationship. (yeah, The galleon trade) Spain, eventually, abuses Philippines as time goes by. He also brought Catholicism and westernism to the country, making it the most westernized nation in Asia. After Jose Rizal died, Philippine's rebellions increased rapidly. Until America came to "buy" Philippines from Spaniards.
Mexico: Philippine's most trusted friend during colonization with Spain. They made a hearty relationship due to Galleon trade which brought prosperity to for both sides. After Mexico gained independence, Philippines And Mexico were banned from trading. Mexico, then, wants to send revolutionaries to the Philippines since Spaniards increased in the Phil. Although Philippines rejected the idea of revolutionary war, Mexico then stated that he'll wait until Philippine's gain independence, and that'll brought back to their relationship once again. Sad though, America butts in, which prevents Mexico and Philippines to trade again.
America: He came to the Philippines and saw that they were colonized by Spaniards. The Spaniards wants to sell Philippines to America and they agreed to make some sort of staged fight. At first, Philippines hates him, although she was grateful to be freed from Spaniards. There was a conflict between them due to misunderstanding and this brought them to war. After America-Philippines war, America wanted to teach Philippines their language, and wanted to become an independent country before they leave. When Philippines almost gain her independence ,Japan invaded Philippines, thus, keeping Philippine's independence on hold. America left for awhile, with a promise "I Shall Return". They did came back, although war was almost over, Philippines almost defeated Japan, and that America helped once again. Oh and their Independence Day would've been the same since the American president wanted to but the Philippines wanted their own date for independence. America for July 4 and for Philippines, June12.
UK: UK (somewhat) made Philippines rebellious to Spain. But because of Treaty of Paris, Spain owns Philippines once again. They colonize Philippines (Manila and Cebu) for 3years and gave it back to Spain afterwards.
Japan: He invaded Philippines, his former trading buddy during WW2. They killed a lot of filipinos, steal women and rape, stole foods, puppet government and etc. Let's not forget the Death March, making the prisoners walk around miles away under the heat of the sun. After 6 year war was over, Philippines finally gained independence.
Germany: He planned to take over Philippines if America didn't want it. But the Americans wouldn't give Philippines to Germany, since it will give them the advantage to bring China down.
Australia: It was not only American who helped the war in the Philippines, but also Australians (and few Mexicans). Australians were also part of the major role in pacific (and parts of Africa).
America: Philippines visits him very often to bring money for her children. In return, Philippines helped them during Cold War and War on Terror.
South Korea: He visits Philippines to learn English language. After few years, Philippines and South Korea established Friendship Festival wherein their friendship would be celebrated every once a year.
Germany: Germany visits Philippines (or should we say Cebu and Palawan, I just saw a Germany flag sticking on the beach) often to take a nice beach break.
Japan: Years have past, Japan is known for exporting cars, gadgets and animes here in the Philippines. Part of Philippines still has a bitter feeling over Japan but most of the time (the young ones) doesn't mind it anymore.
China: still visits Philippines to bring Chinese Merchandises.
Hong Kong: Hong Kong treats Philippines as a maid. Although he can be friendly at times.
Mexico: Known for tacos here. Still visiting there and has fair good relationship, but not as good as during their Galleon trading period. Intense rivalry through boxing!

"Although most parts of the description is correct, I have to tell you that the whole "Philippines helped America in the Cold War and War on Terror" thing is completely incorrect. First, I have to address that while the Philippines DID help in the Cold War, this was alliance was short-lived, because the Philippines originally gave a 99-year assurance of military assistance to the US, but it was revoked to a 25-year assurance on the year 1967. And the Cold War started in 1947 to the year 1991. Meaning that the Philippines just helped halfway, not all throughout the war."
"Second, Philippines did NOT help America in the War on Terror what so ever. In fact, it's the other way around! Back then in the Philippines, a staunch US ally that receives most of its military funding and training from the US, the Pentagon launched Operation Enduring Freedom-Philippines - part of a military effort linked with the main Operation Enduring Freedom mission in Afghanistan - to fight "terrorist insurgent groups" in 2002.
Although the military describes its mission in the Philippines as a success, nearly ten years later, the results are devastating. All-out wars against the Muslim separatist group Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), the communist guerilla group New People's Army (NPA) and the Islamist insurgent group Abu Sayyaf have left a trail of destruction across rural areas of the country.
While the American military argues that its presence has been a stabilising factor in the southern Philippines, wars between the government and insurgents continue with killings on a near-daily basis. And although the Philippine constitution prohibits foreign troops from participating in combat operations in the country, joint operations in war zones are often labeled military "exercises" to avoid controversy."
This was drawn magnificently
Dang that Spain separates the Philippines from the rest of the Malippindo siblings XC
a-anyway, some of the infos there are... not true xDDD
I know right? Spain really did a /great/ job in seperating Phili from Maphilindo siblings! QQAQQ (especially to Brunei! ksaljdkasjd //newOTPlol
lol, Philippines has a lot of men to choose from!
That's the worst relationship I've read in your description. =.=
Anyways, love your drawing! ♥
Still, I can't believe HK nationals hates us. FORGIVE AND FORGET GUYS! PLUS, NO RACISM! =.=
and... it's kinda true.. you see, about four years ago... me and my family went to Hong Kong... I had once a displeasing treatment... but it was not THAT bad. But still.. (though China is kinda worse than Hong Kong... me and my family had some several bad experience there... but it was worth visiting since China is a really nice country xD I love their food)
thanks! I hope HK nationals forgive us right about now... We didn't mean for them to get offended by our actions. ;/
Tsk. hmm. can you explain what's that "displeasing moment"?
Yep. I kinda agree with the.. "China's a nice country" thing. XD
I mean seriously, it's like a million years old. XD
displeasing moment? well, they were many not-so friendly people in the street. Also, I went in the CR, they thought I'm not a customer so they glared at me, and I think they are about to scold me XD;; we were taking out food, my mom explained it. Anyway, the fact that they won't let me use the cr cause I look like I'm not their customer is one of the displeasing moments.
it's not just they are million years old, it really is a nice country. Although they may be.. err, not-so-nice people but the culture, foods and places are really nice! ^^
america or should i say other countries are using our resources and then they use it for themselves then when get tired of it they sell it back to us O.O
