MANILA — Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio called on her followers to avoid acting like somebody's "aso o daga" (dog or rat) and instead be "global citizens bearing good vibes wherever we go."

In an Instagram post Saturday, President Rodrigo Duterte's daughter said despite being "all Filipino," she still longed for what other countries have to offer.

"I am all Filipino. I have German-American ancestry. I am in love with Japan. I salute China. I adore Singapore. I am fascinated by Korea. I look forward to Taiwan. I am Indonesia and Malaysia's bff. I long for UAE and Qatar. I respect Iran. I miss Turkey. I want to go back to Israel. I bloody like the UK. So, get off my back," Duterte-Carpio said.

"Hindi ako tuta nino man."

Duterte-Carpio is in the United States for the US State Department's International Visitor Leadership Program, a discussion on terrorism prevention in Southeast Asia.

Her father, meanwhile, has rejected a US invitation to attend a leaders' summit between American and Southeast Asian officials in Las Vegas in March. 

Just this week, the President has threatened to scrap the Philippine-US Visiting Forces Agreement if Washington does not restore his long-time ally Sen. Ronald Dela Rosa's US visa.
