Living in Philippines
An archipelago of islands, the Philippines are situated in Southeast Asia and consist of around 7641 islands. Situated on the Pacific Ring of Fire, the islands are largely volcanic in origin and are prone to earthquakes and volcanic activity, with around 20 earthquakes registered per day, despite most of them being unfelt. As a result of its volcanic origin, the islands are abundant with minerals with gold, copper, nickel, chromite and zinc all present, though mostly untapped due to poor management, environmental awareness and the density of the population. The economy thus relies on services and manufacturing, having transitioned from an agricultural based economy which still however contributes 14% of the total GDP. The services sector is the largest, with 47% of workers being responsible for 56% of the GDP. The economy relies heavily on remittances from Filipinos working abroad, which contributes more to the economy than foreign direct investment. The Philippine culture is fairly influenced by Spanish culture due to the colonisation of the culture in the name of Philip II of Spain in 1543. The country remained part of the Empire for 300 years, meaning Catholicism is the dominant religion, reflected in the culture seen today. Four churches in the baroque style are on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. But Filipino cuisine has developed into a distinct style, using robust flavours and spices, without the heat of neighbouring Asian countries.
