In brief, Batang Third World is a personal blog about my experiences while working as an expat in Qatar—things I do for fun, places I’ve been, people I meet, friends, work, and commentaries on random stuff I see online.

Despite the name, there is nothing political about the things that I will be posting in this blog so try not make a big deal out of it.  Considering I’m a native of the Philippines, a country considered to be third world (read: developing nation), I just thought it has more punch and sounds more global than say, “Batang Pilipinas” or “Batang Pinoy”.  You agree with me?  Please tell me you do.
