October 6, 2014 Aviation No Comments Email Email

There are several things that we Filipinos are notorious for: Our knack to find famous people who have even just a sliver of Filipino blood in them. On the flip side, we are also known for a lot of positive things. Here are 5 endearing traits that showcase what a true-blue Filipino is like:

1) We take hospitality to a whole new level. You need a place to stay? You need some food to eat? You want to have a place for the night? Go right ahead. We Filipinos are always more than willing to welcome people into our homes, feed them and make sure that we provide them with nothing but the utmost comfort.

2) We are superheroes. Even in times of discomfort, Filipinos are always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Gabriel Macht, actor of the TV series “Suits”, recently visited the Philippines in Leyte after Typhoon Yolanda, and he shared in an interview aired on ANC. “They were knocked down, but they’re back up and that’s very inspiring to see. There’s an amazing warmth and generosity of spirit and that is very inspiring.”

3) We love to eat. It is not surprising that one way of saying “hello” for Filipinos is to ask if another person has eaten already. Our love for food is reflected on how we love to prepare and share food.

4) We are proud of the beauty of our country. The Philippines is definitely a beautiful place to visit. Red Hot Chili Peppers’ lead singerAnthony Kiedis visited Siargao Island for the first time to charge the waves after performing at a music festival earlier this year, and he already named it as Paradise.

5) We love to smile. No matter where we are in the world, we always greet and welcome people with a warm smile. The fact is: We have what is known as ‘The Filipino Smile’. According to Rob Schneider, we also have a ‘Filipino Laugh’. What are ‘The Filipino Smile’ and ‘The Filipino Laugh’? Spot our signature smile and feel at home right here.
