The Philippines i /ËfÉªlÉ¨piËnz/ fi -lÉ-peenz (Filipino: Pilipinas [ËpÉªlÉªËpinÉs]), officially known as the Republic of the Philippines (Filipino: Republika ng Pilipinas ), is a sovereign state in Southeast Asia in the western Pacific Ocean. To its north acros…s the Luzon Strait lies Taiwan. West across the South China Sea sits Vietnam. The Sulu Sea to the southwest lies between the country and the island of Borneo, and to the south the Celebes Sea separates it from other islands of Indonesia. It is bounded on the east by the Philippine Sea. Its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire and its tropical climate make the Philippines prone to earthquakes and typhoons but have also endowed the country with natural resources and made it one of the richest areas of biodiversity in the world. An archipelago comprising 7,107 islands, the Philippines is categorized broadly into three main geographical divisions: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Its capital city is Manila. With a population of more than 92 million people, the Philippines is the 7th most populated Asian country and the 12th most populated country in the world. An additional 12 million Filipinos live overseas. Multiple ethnicities and cultures are found throughout the islands. In prehistoric times, Negritos were some of the archipelago's earliest inhabitants. They were followed by successive waves of Austronesian peoples who brought with them influences from Malay, Hindu, and Islamic societies. Trade introduced Chinese cultural influences which remain to this day. The arrival of Ferdinand Magellan in 1521 marked the beginning of an era of Spanish interest and eventual colonization. In 1543, Spanish explorer Ruy LÃ³pez de Villalobos named the archipelago Las Islas Filipinas in honor of Philip II of Spain. Miguel LÃ³pez de Legazpi arrived in the Philippines in 1565 and consolidated Spanish rule in the islands, which remained a colony of Spain for more than 300 years. (MORE)

Narrative is narrative, no matter what country is talking about it. A narrative or story in its broadest sense is anything told or recounted more narrowly, and more usually, something told or recounted in the form of a causally-linked set of events. It is created by establishing that something is …a part of a whole and usually that something is the cause of something else. It is usually combined with human actions or events that affect human beings. The meaning of each event is produced by the part it plays in the whole episode. A narrative is often in words (though it is possible to mime a story), of something that happened (a story). The narrative is not the story itself but rather the telling of the story -- which is why it is so often used in phrases such as "written narrative," "oral narrative," etc. While a story just is a sequence of events, a narrative recounts those events, perhaps leaving some occurrences out because they are from some perspective insignificant, and perhaps emphasizing others. In a series of events, a car crash takes a split second. A narrative account, however, might be almost entirely about the crash itself and the few seconds leading up to it. Narratives thus shape history (the series of events, the story of what happened). Folk narratives are stories created by the folk in prose.These stories are handed down by word of mouth through the generations and are called Alamt or kwentong bayan in tagalong, Alamat in Pampangga, kasugiran in Cebuano, Sarita in Ilocano,Ginlunaan or Sugilanon in Ilonggo, Kabbata or istorya in Ivatan and Kissa in Tausig. Folk narratives include myths, legends, and folktales. (MORE)
