here in Dubai...Flipinos are known for being too close with their friends...like they go out together on weekends (mall, grocery, shopping) stick together talaga kahit commute lang.. We are known to be mababaw in good way huh, I had talked to several expat and thats what they admire about us, kase they see Filipinos sitting outside like sa kalsada or kahit sa mall, nakaupo at nagtatawanan ng bongang bongga...sila kase they do that too pero hindi mo sila makikitang tawa ng tawa, nakaupo lang at kwentuhan lang tapos madalas serious...at syempre kahit sa kalsada lang nakaupo eh mega picture taking talaga.

Seduce my mind and you can have my body, Find my soul and I'm yours forever.

^this is so true! kaya lang minsan OA na sa pagka masayahin  masyado namang "loud" kahit sa public places. pansin ko 'to especially sa bus or train, kahit 2 or 3 lang silang magkasama  parang ang dami nila sa lakas ng boses at tawanan. Well, it's good to let people see na we are happy people pero sana matuto din tayo to "act accordingly" di ba?
hmmm...actually guilty din ako sometimes lalo na pag na-carried away ako sa usapa napapalakas boses ko  ;D
Life is simple...it's just not easy.

on a positive note, pinoys are very competent at work especially those ofw's in the oil and gas industry . foreign  managers can truly attest to that.

Love for music.

Good in singing, halos lahat ng Pinoy magaling kumanta. Feeling ko nga parang ako lang ang di binayayaan nito hehe.

Dancing. Sa Zumba class ko, kapag marunong si ayaw, most likely di local, greater chance Pinoy. :)

For women - Beauty and hygiene, but mabilbil. They're the cleanest people, sa pagkakaalam ko ha, at least sa Asia. Medyo vain din, perhaps next to the Japanese and Koreans. Beauty naman is because they try to fix themselves and wear makeup, especially the professionals. Downside lang pag 30+ na, pintas ng officemate ko Bakit daw ang lalaki ng bilbil at taba sa likod at arms. This is of course compared to the locals (Chinese).

Masipag at pulido sa trabaho, masayahin and mababaw ang kaligayahan, marunong kumanta at sumayaw, resilient and nakakasmile pa rin in times of crisis, family oriented, religious and mahilig maghanda at kumain.
The best things in life are free...

God is love

Hard workers plus culinary experts :)
A GIRL cherishes handbags, diamonds and her shoe collection as her prized possessions.
A WOMAN cherishes her health, her sense of self, and her talents as her greatest assets.

there are some things that I am proud to be Pinoy, because in the UK, pinoys are known for being good workers.  Especially in the Operating theatre, the surgeons are more complacent if they know that there are Pinoy staff around.  We are known for being resilient and very professional.  And mabilis kumilos and magisip ang Pinoy.  Unlike other race, wherein it takes them 10,000 years just to walk 1 foot. :D

On the downside, Pinoys are also known for being too loud, and mayabang. Well I've noticed these among girls with their purses and stuffs.  Like they will literally flaunt it and namebrand their bags ( and I just really have to stop the urge to just roll my eyes and stifle a yawn)  honestly.  I don't get it why Pinoys are so into brand named bits and bobs, and so with the guys and their cars. 

Sabi nga nila, bato bato sa langit ang tamaan .. guilty, I mean wag magagalit.  If there is one thing, I am proud of, eh hindi ako nahilig sa mga brand names and I may love shopping, I also do not buy fake items, para lang masabi na meron akong branded thing. hehe.
