Philippine Style

We can see many restaurants here in Philippines that peoples are eating using their bare hands. Usually restaurants that serves either roasted or grilled foods with rice of course. Eating foods like this with the hands is far easier than eating with cutlery no matter how habituated one may be to using forks, spoons, or knives. In defense of the practice of eating with the fingers it may be said that this leads to a certain minimum level of hygiene. It forces people to wash their hands before and after meals. And it says its more enjoyable eating with your fingers. Try it so you will know.

An Example of a Filipino Trait

In the Philippines, the people have a lot of traits to be followed from their elders. One of those traits is doing "mano". Upon arriving home, families expect children to practice the kissing of hands or placing their parents or elder family members’ hand to their foreheads with the words “mano po” as a sort of greeting. In return they will say "kaawaan ka ng Diyos" which means God Bless you. This is one thing that my american boyfriend noticed when he visited me here in the Philippines. He asked me what i was doing when i get the hand of my grandfather when we arrived at his house. I told him it's one sign of respect to elder people here in Philippines. It is good that we can know the difference from other countries specially on the traits that we have in our own country.

The Philippine Jeep

Anywhere in the Philippines we can see jeepneys, its either for passenger jeep or for personal service of the owner. Jeepney are the number one public transportation in our country, we can see either at the rural place and at the city area. Some says that jeepney is also a "philippine icon", this means that when you talk about jeepneys then you are talking about the Filipino Country.
Jeepney drivers also have unique regulations, specially those that are used for passenger transportation. They are of course responsible of the safety of whoever is on the ride. Usually it is not advisable to those passenger jeep to overload specially on the top of the jeepney. But some drivers like those at the hinterlands who wants to have more passenger to earn more in just a trip are not following the said rules. Some also jeepney service for those who are going an outing or a trip with relatives and friends wants to arrive at the same time so it turn out the jeepney to be overloaded (see the attached photo).
