      If I am not mistaken, US standard plugs have a third prong for grounding.
      Philippine standard does not. Your two main prongs are round. Ours is flat.
      To compare, it should be something like this:
      
      European Standard:
      
                        |
                     --   --
      
      I do not know which of these is US Standard:
      
                        o
                      o   o
      
      or
                        o
                      |   |
      
      If it is the later, ours is very similar except that the grounding prong is 
      uncommon, so it should be like this:
      
                      |   |
      
      But not to worry. We will try to provide as many universal plug converters as
      possible. I'll put your name on one of them already. =B).
