BlogTour de Suisse: X-Pat Files

Wer wissen will, wie die Schweiz aus filippinischer Sicht aussieht, der lese die X-Pat Files: Online Chronicles of a Filipino expat in Switzerland. Da wird (durchwegs nett, aber durchaus auch mit leicht verständlicher Verwunderung) über Schweizer Eigenheiten wie z.B. das ganze Müllwesen mit offiziellen Müllsäcken, Bussen für wildes Deponieren etc. geschrieben, oder über die exorbitanten Handy-Tarife. Und interessant sind dann auch die Kommentare der LeserInnen aus dem In- und Ausland.

?”berhaupt finde ich die Blogs der AusländerInnen in der Schweiz immer sehr interessant; was man da so alles über die Schweiz lernt ist lehrreich, bedenkenswert, und auch recht lustig :-).

Umgekehrt erfährt man natürlich aus den Blogs der SchweizerInnen im Ausland, wie es sich so in der grossen weiten Welt lebt. Reisetagebücherblogs, sozusagen.

Deshalb meine heutige Lese-Empfehlung: Die Expat Blogs.

    (Thank you very much for mentioning my blog here.)

    Too bad I’m not proficient enough in German to understand the whole text.
    But I trust that it’s favorable? :-)

    Cheers!

    Jayred, it certainly is favourable :-). In short, wrote that your blog is interesting because it shows us Switzerland from a Philippine perspective.

    Vielen Dank, Matthias. (Oh, I should really work hard on my German
    studies….).

    Well, I’m not your regular “Pinoy” (Filipino), but I hope I do
    some kind of justice to the term “Philippine perspective.”

    P.S. I’m impressed with Blogging Tom’s Tagalog/Filipino. Maraming
    salamat, Blogging Tom, sa comment mo. Pinoy ka ba?

    Jayred, I just lOVE reading your x-pat files.
    I think you even enhance a Filipino perspepective over Switzerland because unlike typical
    Filipinos you are more straight forward and thus so poignant in your writing about living
    in Switzerland and your observations. Matthias is right, it’s all worth reading indeed.:-)

    Blogging Tom: Hmmm. Interesting.

    mwm: Thanks a lot for your comment. Yes, you’re right — I’m not
    your typical Filipino.
