Pinoys are known as fast learners. My father works in a place majority of mexicans or latinos, nagtataka sila why my father can speak and understand english better than them kahit 10years pa lang sya sa US, while most of them are more than a decade there. Pinoys are also known for hardworkers. Hindi mareklamo.

^True. And speak english well. They're amaze that we can speak even much better english than they are. ;)

Here in the office, they call me "Thinkerbell". Kasi daw I am so petite yet I solve IT problems right away just with my magic dust... hehe.  Nakakatawa pero nasanay na rin ako, sometime kasi flaterring din.  Almost lahat ng Pinoy na nagwowork dito sa hotel namin are always a candidate in the employee of the month. Kaya sobrang proud ako to be Pinoy.

I remember being in a career talk dati given by a founder/president of a multinational company, sabi nya ang mga pinoy daw mahilig sa parties. I think its true kasi mahilig tayo magsaya.
Napansin ko din sa ibang offices namin abroad, super boring sa mga office nila kasi 100% work talaga, wala man lang nagchichikahan.Pero as pinoys, we know how to have fun and still being good at our work!
Isa pa pala, nong hinatid ako ng chinese boss ko sa airport sa San Francisco dati, hinahanap namin ang PAL. Sabi nya yung area daw siguro na maraming taong may dalang box because pinoys are also known for our balikbayan boxes! hehe.

This reminds me of my malaysian officemate, we had a visitor who's a managing director of a company and asked her to find an engineer for his company.  My malaysian officemate told him why don't he sort out his staff locally to save relocation expenses.  The director said, I want a Filipino because they are hardworking and can easily learn the job. My officemate said, I'm not Filipino, I'm Malaysian. Napahiya yata si director, sabi na lang niya...Malaysian is good as well, so if you know somebody who needs a job. Tell him to send his CV to me.

Filipinos now are known to be missionaries, you'll ask why? because we are given the task to fulfill Christ mission in this world, how? being a nurse, caregiver or doctors abroad giving uncomparable care to those whose suffering physically, emotionally and mentally.  being teachers, teaching and touching the lives of these kids that even their own kind almost have given up on them.  being domestic helpers, takes care of their home and children too.  Our priests and religious sectors are being sent to other countries to fill-in the shortage of priests abroad... That's the Filipino mission in this world... I'm proud to be PINOY! i'm fulfilling this mission right now!

may flatmate ako she's 36 na but she barely looks 30. tapos yung colleague nya daw minsan sinabihan sya, "you filipinos are cheaters. most of you look so much younger than your age"

oh di ba?! bongga :P

we are known din dahil sa love for the family. kasi foreigners dont give money sa family nila or parents pag nagwowork na. di tulad ng pinoy na magwowork sa ibang bansa to help their family.

saka maasikaso sa asawa or even bf.

eto ha .. according sa mga friends ko na lebanese , na ang pinay daw ay mahilig sa rice and noodles tapos pag nagsasabi daw ng "left" eh "lef" daw binibigkas natin ;D  like "post" eh pos sinasabi natin, "paste" eh pase para satin ;D, lagi nya tinatanong kung baket daw ganun tayong mga filipino, why daw natin ino-omit ang "t" ;D sabi ko naman kasi silent "t" yun

To add to that, meron daw tayong mga Pinoy na F-P syndrome.  Ang F ginagawang p (instead of instead of four we often pronounce it as por, and instead of saying paper, we say fafer)!  At meron ding V - B syndrome. 

Pero sabi nila, Filipinos are also known for our fluency in English, though English is not our native tongue.  Kaya nga maraming businesses ang naga-outsource sa Pinas kasi nga well versed ang Pinoys when it comes to English!

which kind? yung good o bad? malungkot man isipin pero meron na mga pinoy ngayon na nasa abroad na naliligaw ng landas, na minsan naiisip ko dinudungisan nila yung pagka pinoy natin.

nonetheless, basta pilipino... well usually, hardworker tayo :)

Safe in His arms, forever in our hearts.
