The Philippines is known as the ‘text capital of the world’ and Filipinos are labeled kings of text messaging worldwide. Each mobile phone user in the Philippines sends out at least ten messages per day compared to the users in the United Kingdom that sends out at least three text messages per day. The four top mobile service providers stated that at the end of 2007, 42.78 million people in the Philippines are mobile subscribers. In two Filipinos, one is a subscriber to a mobile phone service. There are more cell phone users in the Philippines than landline owners. According to a leading research company, it is the first country in the world where mobile users spend more on data services than on voice. Texting is now developed into a Philippine cultural trait or hobby.

Man in the Mirror
I'm gonna make a change for once in my life It's gonna feel real good gonna make a difference Gonna make it right...
As I, turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat This wind is blowin' my mind I see the kids in the street with not enough to eat Who am I, to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs A summer's disregard a broken bottle top And a one man's soul They follow each other on the wind ya' know 'Cause they got nowhere to go That's why I want you to know
I'm starting with the man in the mirror I'm asking him to change his ways And no message could have been any clearer If you wanna make the world a better place Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love It's time that I realize That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan Could it be really me, pretending that they're not alone?
A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart And a washed-out dream They follow the pattern of the wind, ya' see Cause they got no place to be That's why I'm starting with me
I'm starting with the man in the mirror I'm asking him to change his ways And no message could have been any clearer If you wanna make the world a better place Take a look at yourself and then make a change Written and Composed by Siedah Garrett and Glen Ballard Artist: Michael Jackson
