    Napakapalad ng mga taong nabanggit, sapagkat sa laki ng kayamanang kanilang pag-aari ay sapat-sapat kahit apo-apuhan ay hindi kayang ubusin. Ilang Pilipinong kababayan natin ang meron ng ganitong pagkakataon sa buhay. Ang mga taong ito, dahil sa pagtitiyaga, pagsisikap at determinasyon, kasama na ang disiplina ay nagbunga ng sobra-sobrang materyal para sa kanilang sarili.

    Nakakatuwa, at nakakainggit kung tutuusin, sa hirap ng buhay ngayon na halos karamihan sa mga ating kababayan ay naghihirap, kung kayat napilitang umaklas sa ating bayan at magbakasakali sa ibang bansa, sa dahilang wala namang patutunguhan ang kaprangkot na pasahod ng mga kumpanya sa atin na karamihan ay pag-aari ng mga taong nabanggit sa taas. Bukod sa mababa pasahod, ito pa ay hindi pangmatagalan at pirmihan. Siguro, kung katulad lang tayo tulad ng bansang Singapore, minamahalaga nila ang kanilang kababayan at lahat ay nakikinabang sa kanilang paglilingkuran sa mga kumpanya, sapagkat sapat ang kita lahat ay makikinabang. Wala ng mag-iisip pa iwanan ang kanilang pamilya, sapagkat masaya na sa atin, dahil sapat ang kita, na masusuportahan natin ang pangangailangan, na yun lang naman ang kailangan ng bawat pamilya. Mawala narin kahit papaano ang mga taong palaboy-laboy sa kalye, walang sariling bahay at sagana na kasi ang kabuhayan, sana kung ganon.

    Makapangyarihang mga tao sa materyal na bagay, may sapat na kakayahan na makatulong ng husto sa kababayan kung tutuusin, pero masalimuot ito, sapagkat ang tao ay may likas na makasarili, samantalang lahat ng bagay na ating tinatangkilik sa mundong ito ay pansamantala lamang.

    “Siyang umiibig sa salapi ay hindi masisiyahan sa salapi; o siya mang umiibig sa kayamanan na may pakinabang: ito man ay walang kabuluhan.”

    kakalungkot nga lang. karamihan sa mga kabataan ngaun imbis na mag aral bisyo barkada sex computer games at kung ano ano ang ginagawa.

    may mga gustong mag aral wala namang pera.
    may gustong mgtrabaho wala namang talino.

    patungo sa pagkaluray ang mundo!

    mangagsisi na kayo ano! ;) )

  6. iraya on December 29th, 2007 at 2:10 am

    These rich guys are not pure blooded filipinos. Most of them chinese and other spanish. E nun pa man sino na ba ang mga trader talaga ito sa pinas. Mga utusan lang naman tayo nung araw pa ng mga yan.
    I doubt on stories w/ some them telling rags to riches. Eh nung araw po kasi dito sa pinas madali lang kumita ng pera. Mga chinese sp. from hongkong pa nga pumupunta dito sa tin to work and do bisnis. Tayo, noon pag pumunta sa HK bakasyon. Ngayun baligtad na. Maraming matalino sa atin pero marami ding malikot ang isip at yung kalikutan hindi ginagamit sa tyagaang paraan. Gusto kaagad get rich. As in madalian.
    Sa mga chinese, matyga talaga sila at di nila dinadaan sa bilisan. Sa mga pinoy sad to say yumaman lang agad kahit makapanloko ng kapwa pinoy gagamitin ang utak sa panloloko at hindi sa maayos na paraan. Not all filipinos but sadly,nowadays, marami na. Kaya its too late for us na humabol pa sa mga taong yan na nasa itaas.

    One example, tignan mo si Mr. jollibee, ang tagal na nating kilala ang hamburger panahon pa ng mga kano, pero bakit si Tony Tan pa na isang chinese yumaman sa hamburger. Simple lang kasi ang alam natin noon walang yayaman sa hamburger lang tinda mo. Sya nagtyaga cguro sabi nya, “unti unti lang mapapalaki ko ito. Ayaw n’yo eh di ako
    gagawa” At yan na ang JOLIBEE. Tayo nakikikain nlang at namamasukan nlang. At marami na nag-aabroad sa atin to work kasi mas mabilis na doon yumaman sa labas kesa dito sa Pinas to the point now of sacrificing ang mga anak natin na maging kulang sa tunay na gabay ng magulang.
    PC violent games, early dating and sex, barkada, dito naiiwan ang mga anak natin na mas nagbibigay impluwensya sa kanila
    Kaya po wag kayo magtaka if in the future, maaga din kayo iwanan ng mga anak nyo kasi ganun na din naramdaman nila sa inyo when you start to work abroad. Masarap pero may consequence din na masakit tanggapin in the future…

  7. asheyla jade on January 1st, 2008 at 9:48 am

    Congratulations!!! yan ang masasabi ko sa mga taong nakabilang sa itaas, how i wish lahat ng mga pinoy ay katulad nila. Kahit full blooded Filipino kayang kaya ang naabot nila basta magtyaga lang ng todo. Tama ang madami nakakainggit ang pwesto nila and we always wish that we’re on the same chair… hm imbes na mainggit lets follow their footsteps malay natin umunlad din ang buhay ng bawat Pinoy. Kailangan kase hindi lamang natin sila tinitingnan kailangan ginagaya din natin ang kanilang mga gawa kahit sa simpleng mga negosyo lang… sana magising na ang bawat Pinoy na kailangan tayo ay umangat sa sariling sipag at tiyaga at hindi lamang sa pag-asa at pananaghili sa iba… good luck sa lahat ng Pinoy sa mundo..

  8. Aileen on January 1st, 2008 at 11:01 am

    They are so amazing…I hope all Filipinos we’re business minded…

  9. yuki on January 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 am

    most of them have chinese blood si manny villar lang yata ang true blooded pinoy

  10. la sallian on January 16th, 2008 at 4:15 pm

    i really inspired those people.nasa tao kasi yan, if he/she want a change in his/her life it could be with his/her determination and hard work to achieve what he/she wanted to his/her life.

  11. clay on January 20th, 2008 at 10:59 am

    i believe these rich filipinos have atittudes beyond the normal people. because for me, it takes atittude for anyone to achieve success in life though we may never know the true meaning of success. for success may be having a lot of money for many of us, but it could mean another thing for some. these people are way beyond ordinary people, for they were able to surpass great things in their lives.and so they reap the fruit of their hard works. i think we, the so called “masang filipino” must begin to realize that we must have atittudes like these rich men have if we want to have better lives. we just have to learn how to stop looking to others fault and start finding ours. and we should also practice discipline like these great men didd in order for us to achieve something. after all, it is our next generation who will suffer the stupidity we are doing now. but it is never too late, we have to wake up from our insanity and move forward and i mean move fast, so that we could still save what could be saved. thanks… GOD BLESS THE PHILIPPINES!!!!!!!

  12. hunter on January 31st, 2008 at 5:55 pm

    Personally, I don’t think that having attained the success they have now has something to do w/ blood. True, almost all of them doesn’t even have a single drop of Filipino Blood. But does it matter?

    They chose Philippines as the land where they will live until the end. Stories of rags to riches are true. But sometimes hard to believe, despite of what we are seeing today.

    Since almost all of them started after the war (that’s where the luck and timing comes in). But the question is, if the war affected all of us, why only a handful rose up to the challenge and brought home the bacon?

    Also if it’s in the blood, why not all Chinese and Spanish decent living in the country rich? How come do I see Chinese people jobless in Chinatown in Binondo? Always when we meet a Chinese, our impression on them is that they are ‘kuripot’ and ‘rich’. And why should that be? ‘Kuripot’ maybe because of being thrift and practicing the Confucianism way of life, but rich? Never generalize.

    In my opinion, the people mentioned above does not have to be non-Filipino in blood just to be rich. Since they are living w/ us here in the country since long time ago, me thinks that they have also adopted to our culture, dialect and language and the likes. It’s perseverance and the knack of saving their hard earned money.

    They also believe a lot in us, Filipino. For they invest millions of dollars/peso back into our country, not only to make more money, but expressing signs of confidence that one day we can beat China, Japan, Europe, Middle East, and the US of A in terms of wealth.

    I just do hope that our country is not that too late to change for the better. Eradicate the ’states-side mentality’, and develop patriotism in our very own country. That’s the hardest part to change w/ the way globalism is going on nowadays.
    If they can do it with only shear dreams and daring guts, why can’t we?

    “Money is not the root of all evils as to what they imply, but the LOVE OF MONEY is.”

    hindi naman lahat nandyan… how about the Ampatuan family of Mindanao. and Tan yu? hindi accurate…

  14. milton on February 7th, 2008 at 5:58 am

    sooo… amazing talaga…i really believe in their commitment, determanation in life but i DON’T want to believe in LUCKY or swerte….kc alam nyo God blessed those people who put faith in Him, at di ko sinasabi na lahat sila believer,even Satan able to bless people….kaya lang alam nyo may general rule kc sa Bible eh,kung ano ang tinanim mo yun ang aanihin mo,,so kung katamaran ang itinamin mo wala kang aanihin kung kagandahan ng loob ang itinanim mo maganda rin ang aanihin mo….diba…its all about you and God lang talaga.,and God had a purpose why He gave that to them so that they can share and help people through blessing…oo sasabihin mo your sowing goddness naman but untill now your still hirap pa sa buhay, that is why i told you na its all about you and God…

  15. milton on February 7th, 2008 at 6:07 am

    maraming comment sa taas,,about success…..about sa lucky daw???…..blood ……education…..knowledge…ay naku yung mga billionaire nga mga di nga nakatapus eh, GOd is able to give you much much money……and God also can take out away from you…God bless nalang sa inyo…peace…

    Papaparehas kayong lahat na walang alam. Mayayaman yang lahat na nasa itaas because simple lang. Destiny nila yun, period…dami pa ninyong sinasabi…”Destiny” is the word.

  19. Jun Nacino on March 17th, 2008 at 10:47 am

    Please update the list of richest man in the Philippines for the year 2008. I think Gov. Singson, our current President GMA or Arroyo’s Family should be included in the top 10 list.

  20. claire on March 20th, 2008 at 3:44 am

    are you seriously telling me that the chinese had it easy?
    haha. you were obviously sleeping during history lessons.
    you lazy filipinos are now wealthy (ayala, zobel, etc) because u were allowed to buy land during the 16th century, while the chinese were not. kami yung inalipin. hence, we had to resort to trading and businesses.
    before you pass rumors as information, check your facts.

    gokongwei’s networth is at 860. he’s supposed to be on the list.

  21. Edrian on March 29th, 2008 at 9:43 am

    Wow!!!! Iba talaga pag Masipag, Masikap, Matiyaga at madiskarte ang tao, tiyak malayo ang mararating. Kung tutuusin, ang iba sa maga tao na nabanggit galing din naman sa hirap, Kaya lang Duon sila bumangon, duon sila natuto. kasi nga mahirap naman talaga ang buhay, so, walang ibang paraan kundi ang pagsikapan na makaahon. Alam din kasi siguro nila marahil na wala rin namang ibang makakatulong sa kanila kundi ang sarili lang nila.

    Hindi na natin dapat pag-usapan pa ang mga nakaraan sapagkat lumipas na yon. E ano kung naging alipin tayo ng mga dayuhan. Excuses naba yun para hindi tayo umasenso sa buhay, sa sarili nating paraan? Bakit sila, nagawa nila? Sa sarili kung palagay, nasa tao lang yun. Hindi na natin dapat pang tinitingnan pa kung ano ang lumipas. Tama ba? Kung ako ang tatanungin, mapalad talaga sila kasi naabot nila ang buhay nila ngayon. Pero ako, inspired ako nsa kanila. Ang totoo nga nyan sila pa ang inspirasyon ko sa buhay ko ngayon para makaahon din.

    Marahil kung lahat ng tao dito sa atin ay katulad lang nila kung mag-isip, malamang malayo na rin ang narating natin, siguro may maghirap man pero hindi kagaya ng nararanasan natin ngayon. Ahhhhh…… Isa lang ang alam ko, may kasabihan nga ako na nabuo ko sa sarili ko ” Kapag ipinanganak ka ng mahirap, hindi mo kasalanan. Pero, kapag namatay ka na mahirap, Kasalanan mo” tama ba ako? hindi na rin natin kailangan pang isisis sa gobyerno ang lahat, alam naman natin na likas na sa atin ang pagiging makasarili at kurakot na gobyerno e… Pero ang dapat nalang nating gawin at pag-isipan ng sulusyon ay kung paano tayo makakaahon sa kahirapan sa mabuting paraan!

    Sana makakita pa tayo ng pag-sa kasi habang may buhay may pag-asa!

  22. jarcas on April 3rd, 2008 at 11:57 am

    ang masasabi ko lang siguro dapat mahalin natin ang ating trabaho at ang ating pamilya… Yun n! :)

  23. Mike_Portnoy on April 15th, 2008 at 11:38 am

    rason kung bakit ganyan sila kayaman is because of mas inuuna nila ang sarili nilang pangangailangan kesa sa luho at karamihan sa kanila talagang mga kuripot titiisin ang lahat makamtam lang ang gustong makamtam, di tulad ng mga Pinoy, mas inuuna ang luho. On the otherside most of them are not totally tax payable, may mga ilang lugar dito sa luzon na kinuha nila na dating palayan na ngayon ay pinagtayuan ng mga pabrika, real state at malls, kaya di karin nagtataka kung bakit marami ang nagugutom sa Pinas, ang mga dayuhang businessman na walang dugong Pinoy ang laging busog samantala ang mga purong pinoy naman ang laging gutom !

  26. Majds on August 18th, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    Turo dito turo dun. Bakit ba tayong mga Pilipino wala ng ginawa kundi ang magreklamo at manisi? Marami akong mga kaklase sa kolehiyo ang walang pakealam kung ano ang mangyayari sa kanila sa susunod na araw, sa susunod na buwan, sa mga darating pang mga panahon. Ang gusto lang nila maging masaya ang bawat segundo ng buhay nila.

    Harapin natin ang totoo, hindi pare pareho ang gusto ng bawat tao. Wala rin tayong karapatan ng manghusga ng kahit sinong tao. Di rin tayo dapat magalit sa mga tao nabanggit sa taas. Yan ang bunga ng kanilang paghihirap. Nakakalungkot man sabihin pero kanya kanyang kayod sa mundo. Tulungan mo muna sarili mo bago ka tumulong sa iba. Sa tama, sa malinis, sa ikagaganda ng buhay ng tao sa paligid mo. Kung ganyan lang sana ang Pilipino, di malayong mangyari na maging maunlad na bayan tayo.

    Wala tayon dapat sisihin kung bakit karamihan sa mga Pinoy ay mahihirap, nasa mga magulang natin ang ugat sa kahirapan, may magagawa pa naman tayo para umunlad, negosyo ang dahilan kaya yumaman ang mga nasa itaas, siguro mag-umpisa rin tayong mag negosyo at sa mga anak naman natin, itanim natin sa mga isip nila na magtapos sa pag aaral para mag negosyo pagkatapos hindi yung mag aral at magtapos para makahanap ng magandang trabaho pagkatapos, yun ang dapat nating baguhin, negosyo at negosyo ang itanim natin sa mga isip ng mga kabataaan para tayo umunlad.

    simple lng ang formula nila: They know how money work for them and not to work for money, kailangan lng ntin aralin kung papano tayo papayamanin ng pera natin, at hindi tayo ang maghahabol sa pera. Almost all filipino work for money, lhat tayo aral ng aral tpos magtatrabaho para kumita ng pera, eh sila yung pera nila ang ginagamit nila para sila kumita ng pera. Kaya almost all of us stay being an EMPLOYEE and they stay as an EMPLOYER alam kasi nila kung papano paganahin ang pera samantalang tayo ang alam lang natin ay kung papano maghabol sa pera. READ SOME BOOKS AND BE FINANCIALLY LITERATE ito ay di natututunan sa iskwelahan ito ay self learning. Tnx

    wag sisihin ang gobyerno, wag mainis sa mga yumaman..

    bakit, ikaw, oo ikaw na nagbabasa nito, right here and right now, ano na ang mga MATINDING paghihirap ang iyong isinakripisyo para paunlarin ang iyong sarili? nag-aral ka ba ng mabuti at ginagamit ng tama ang bawat oras sa buhay mo? ilang load at luho sa katawan na ang iyong tiniis para makapag-open ng account sa bangko at makapag-save kahit paunti-unit ha? mind you, kahit sampung piso tinatanggap ng bangko as asavings..

    kelan ka huling tumulong kahit sa napakaliit at katiting na paraan para makatulong sa pagpapaginhawa ng buhay ng iba? kelan ka huling nagpaubaya ng upuan sa bus? kung babae ka, kelan mo huling ibinigay ang upuan mo sa mas matanda at mas mahina sayo? pinupulot niyo ba ang sentimong nasa kalsada? tinatangkilik niyo ba ang mga nagbebenta ng piniritong saging, ginataan at turon na tinutulungan ang kanilang pamilya at sarili upang makaraos?

    never ka ba nagkalat ng basura sa kalye kahit balat lng yan ng kendi?

    sa maliit na paraan nagsisimula ang lahat..

    parang sila, nagpupuyat sa gabi upang reviewhin ang kanilang mga assets, tinitiis na halos walang masyadong gimik para hindi mapuyat at makapag isip ng sunod na gagawin kinabukasan upang mapaunlad pa kung ano meron sila ngayon..ikaw? ano na na ang gingawa mo? may konkreto knabang plano ng gagawin mo bukas para hindi ka mamatay na isang mahirap pagdating ng araw?

  55. Kaye on January 5th, 2010 at 5:36 am

    There is no such thing as chinese-filipino, spanish-filipino kaya sila yumaman. Filipinos are mixed blood of chinese, spanish, malay, indo, ect ect . We are filipinos and we succeed not because we have chinese blood or spanish blood or whatsoever blood… We just have to accept that other people work hard and succeed! Its not in the blood, its the determination, hard work and prayers! Good luck to everyone, i hope one day we’ll get our chances and made it into the top 10 richest filipinos one day… Watch out for my name hahahah!!! Bah ang lakas ng loob ko ah!

    Did you notice how almost all of the names listed above are from Chinese descents? only tells us that the chinese are still ruling our country -.-

  61. Lucilw Veran on May 4th, 2010 at 10:07 am

    sinO nga ba dapat ang kainggitan ang mayayaman na Lahat ng gustO niLa ay nakukuha niLa O taung mahirap na sapat Lang kung mamuhay?sa buhay kO nahihirapan man akO sa aking sitwasyon na minsan tinanOng kO na ang diyos bakit ba akO napunta sa ganitOng pamiLya na naghihikahos taz ng pagniLayan kO kung bakit? Lahat ng pagkakataOn ay nakapLanO,Maraming tao ang nagsasabi na ang buhay daw ay parang isang gulong minsan kang nasa taas at minsan kang nasa ibabaw merong umaasenso merong bumabagsak.Aking pinagnilayan kong bakit ako nandito sa mundo at ano ba dapat ang plano na gagawin ko.Sa tuwing ako ay sumasakay sa jeep ang palaging kong naiisip bakit kailangan maging busy itong mga taong ito? pangkaraniwang na pinagkakaabalahan ay ang umasenso, makaalis sa kanilang kinalalagyan na kong saan hirap na sa kanilang sitwasyon at punong puno ng problema sa buhay mapamayaman o mapamahirap. Nang mabasa ko ang purpose driven life nasabi ko ang buhay ay hindi isang gulong kundi isang napakalaking misyon at hindi ka dapat magtaka kong bakit ka nanditO..itutuLoy

  64. iko que on September 8th, 2010 at 8:26 am

    all i can is that CONGRATULATIONS to all of them beacuse they made it actually to become such and i believe to their sacrifices. If all people would have been that way then there would be no poor in the Philippines but not seldom only wishes to follow their footstep and i hope i could make it into the stardome …hehehe

    formula for success is hardwork, connection, n luck. To be a multi millionaire, you just need to have one of the above. BUT! to be a multi billioniare (in $$$), ibang usapan na yan, dapat may halong kapalaran at swerte na yan..

    i have seen people who became multi-millionaires who r matinik, madiskarte, w/ connection, but to earn US$1B+ , ibang usapan na yan, $1B is = to P45B, thats like saying you are earning P10M per day for 365 days for 12 straight years, Wow men, Diba may halong swerte yun.?
