The Spaniards learn our letters and languages before they actually introduced the Spanish Language that's why they documented the Baybayin writing of ancient people found in the Philippines.

Baybayin is available in college level to those who wanted to learn the old writings.
yup! there is, since some area is leftout from Hindu-Buddhist influence like this Iban (Dayak) writing



and this should help you to differentiate it, the ones with Bali, Kawi, Sunda and Java are definitely sanskrit... except Bali and Sunda "Kuna" are the original ones

^Just sad that there's a lot of railways and bridge that was destroyed during World War II. We already have railways from Dagupan to Southern Luzon before and it was built before the end of 20th century. There was train from Dagupan to Manila to Southern Luzon and even in Visayas there was railways also.

Bridge like San Juanico Bridge in Visayas is nice hopefully, they'll create more like this for interconnection
of all Islands.





^The script before Batak Karo is similar to Surat Mangyan

Same for Indonesia, except that our islands have wider gap... there is hope for Java and Sumatra though, its called Selat Sunda Bridge but no work whatsoever is done, just render.



That's too bad.... the rail link is mostly destroyed :/ so then people from the Philippines need to use car and busses to travel between cities... in Indonesia the railway is there to connect cities only in Java (we are currently planning an express train too but who knows how long until it is actually built), even these are mostly Dutch built.... the latest one we have is Medan's railink system in Sumatra that takes you around the town and airport. The island of Sumatra has three (soon to be four) unconnected railway lines in the northernmost province of Aceh, North Sumatra (the area surrounding Medan), West Sumatra (Padang and its environs), and South Sumatra and Lampung.





how the stations look like:

Some of the previous trains built in the Philippines which mostly damage during the WWII. Bicol area is the only one that survives, They first used the railways for Fresh water delivery until it became transportation some used for Industrialized.

Quote:
PNR (Philippine National Railways) began operations on November 24, 1892 as the Ferrocarril de Manila-Dagupan, during the Spanish colonial period, and later becoming the Manila Railroad Company (MRR) during the American colonial period. It became the Philippine National Railways on June 20, 1946 by virtue of Republic Act No. 4156. The PNR is an agency of the Department of Transportation and Communications.


Bicol Express Train rides again. People still love to ride the
old train like it used to be.

PNR used to operate over 479 km (298 mi) [SIZE=2]of route from [/SIZE]La Union up to Bicol.

Cool pictures, both countries look beautiful and interesting. I definitely have to visit both countries soon. But the Philippines attracts me more, it doesn't seem like another typical Asian country..Very unique! (at least compared to other Asian countries I know).

Thank you

Actually, some people here say that Philippines is the least interesting country in Asia because Filipinos have the least interesting culture, but I think Philippines is unique because Philippines is the only predominantly Catholic country in Asia and it is the only hispanic country in Asia. It is a blend of the East and the West so I am actually glad that our culture and religion are different from the rest of Asia.
