Western behaviors that are funny or weird for you
« on: September 10, 2009, 03:55:24 pm »
I am just remembering the plenty of different things I discovered in my first travel to Philippines that was indeed my first travel out of europe.

I think would be fun to know the experiences of the pinoy people of the forum and is living abroad, or travelled and found behaviours or customs that for them seemed weird or funny because of the different culture.

Anybody wanting to share any funny experience they had dealing with us in our westernized world? :P

Regards :)

In western world when you arrive around meal time and if invited to join the meal out of respect and you sit down and eat it very rude.
In philippines you are very rude and disrespectful esp. for us from Bohol if invited to join the meal and refuse.
belching is rude in western world when you belch you always say excuse me. In philippines seems like it's almost a blessing because after belching they said the Gracia Sa Dios or Deo Gratia. Last week I had brunch with filipino friends and one of them belch and never say excuse me I find it very rude ,maybe I  am adopting the western culture better.

From my part I found funny the use of spoon as a knife.

:) Seems that long time ago the spanish did not want the natives to have knifes and only showed them the spoon and the fork and they conserved the way nowdays.

In Bohol you can go inside the cinema and maybe the movie is in the end but they tell you "No problem just see the rest now when it starts again". :D

National anthem in the cinemas.

When I went to give the hand to a filipino and he put in in his head :) now I know why is that hahaha

You can stop buses and jeepneys everywhere, no fixed stop places.

In a jeepney or multicab suddently somebody gives you money and you do not know why, first thing you think is maybe you are going too far with the poor foreigner disguise, till your friend or gf tells you is for the driver hahahaha ;)

People swimming with clothes so they do not get tan :)

Products for put the skin more white!!  :o

Philippine airlines pilots are crazy hahaha, the most scary take offs and landings in my life :P

When I saw in market "Puto Mamon Blanco" which means f***** white sucker in Spanish. I couldn´t avoid to smile :P

I found plenty of new things I cannot name them all.

I really enjoyed discovering new things all the time and still lot to learn :)

Cannot wait till October :D

In U.S state of Illinois. One thing you forgot for sure is every businesses  you go in Philippines there is always security guard with either high power gun, shot gun or hand gun. In western world you will never see security guard except in some federal buildings.

In Europe when you burp at the table or everywhere it means rude but in Philippines when you burp you must thanks God for the food that makes you satisfied , so on my very first dinner here i tried my best not to burp but i got surprised when the one who sits infront of me blow her nose :D I wonder which one is more rude- burping or blowing nose infront of the food?  :D

Oh yeah and the checkpoints in malls etc.

Hopefully I was advised before I went there cause I am not used to that. I never see weapons here in Spain :P

LOL, at least here in Spain is rude at any time :P

One thing more: There are almost no places with toilet paper hahaha and I wasn´t advised of this one before going there hahaha

Another difference: huge lack of light at night over all when I went at night in Tagbilaran and Cebu. the darkness made me feel really unsafe in Tagbilaran with a huge row of young filipinos in their motorbikes staring at us.

But I was relaxed till my friend said. "let´s go inside BQ cause they are not looking us in a friendly way" hahahaha.

The opposite at day time I never felt in danger in Bohol, Cebu or Makati.

Welcome to TB keko!  I noticed you enjoyed staying with us.

At the first time, I found shocking  that  young love pairs kissing anywhere and showing it proudly to the public whereas in our country it seems everything runs in the other way around then mostly it resulted to avoided pregnancy.  ;D more awesome!

Yeah and sometimes you will find people doing more than kissing hahaha. I noticed there, is very different. Even sometimes a simple kiss in public and she turns the face for put the cheeks hahahaha but so different story in private lol :P

Is so funny :)

I was born in the Philippines but grew up in the United States, raised here and think like any other typical American. One thing that I notice about Filipino parents and the older Filipino generation here in the USA is their inviting nature.

If I go over my Tita's house, they always offer food, and it is rude to reject, as prescribed in Filipino Culture. So we acquiesce.

In the United States, the American people maintain a "MYOB" (Mind your own business) attitutde, especially in the Tri-State Area where I live. New York-New Jersey-Pennsylvania Region. Any large urban area will have that 'hustle and bustle' attitude and Ive noticed the impersonal atmosphere in large American cities namely: Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New York City.

Americans are very open, direct. To your face. Filipinos (in the philippines or recent immigrants) are more subtle, permissive, obeiscant. They say something but mean the other.

Americans love to shake hands. American Men shake hands when meeting new people. A firm handshake indicates confidence, assertiveness and control. The antithesis for weak handshakes.

We love our sports. American Football, Baseball, Hockey, Volleyball, racing, etc. All are popular American pasttime.

Man and Football and Beer is synonymous. hehehehe!
-----------

I do admire the Filipino Mano Po.
It is, in my point of view, the epitime of familial piety.
:)

I admire both cultures. Filipino and American.
As a Filipino-American, ive developed an appreciation for both.
Pride in my American patriotism, but respect for the culture of the MotherCountry (Philippines).

In high school I was a football player, i was a Defense Noseguard for our football team. Our goal was to sack the opponent's quarterback or tackle the other team's offense capability.

After games, in the locker room, we would slap each other everywhere and laugh at it. lol.

When I tackled a quarterback or recovered the ball, another tackler from my team would bash his head to my head (both of us would be wearing our helmets, of course).

And shout, "Yea, baby!" and or usher horrendous curse words to signify our dominant glee in our opposing team's defeat. he he he

Over-stimulated, especially in foot ball games, we would chest-but each other. A show of male testosterone in full drive.

One thing I noticed about American culture, we have aggressive sports. No holds bars, baby...

he he he

In Philippines the kitchen table had merry go round in the middle lol. We even had more megamalls . Be prepared to take a bath with really cold water. No hot shower mostly unless you stay in the hotel.Other than eyebrow raising and lip puckering, ther next most expressive form of communication is grunts and pssst's. The daughter gets her ears pierced when she's 2 minutes old but your sons are not circumcised until they turn 21 hahahah.

lol circumcised at 21? whoa!

In philippines, families are so dependent on the yayas, and the maids and domestic helpers.

Here in the 'states, there are no such things as maids, or domestic helpers.

Just ourselves. he he he!

---

There is no such thing as 'courting' in the 'states. Its a race race race. hehehehe!

hmm, what else pa, American girls are direct. They like to ask you out, they like to take charge (most of the time), and they love a man's wallet. Ouch!

gotta find the right one wisely. he he he

In a Filipino household, the family like to stick together and the kids are recommended by the family to live in the house until they are ready to support themselves.

In the 'states, the parents want their kids out by age 18. he he he he!

Filipino households advice kids to finish education and recommend them not to work, studies first. Work later.

In American households, American parents want their kids to work early to stress the importance of 'Work Ethic' and the knowledge of earning an honest day's work in earning a Dollar.

In Philippines, fathers drive the car most of the time, from place to place.

In the USA, the soccer mom/hockey mom drives most of the time. he he he!

In the Philippines, the staple crop is 'Luto' or ~ Rice.

In the USA, there is no one staple crop.
We have:
1. mashed potatoes
2. bread

---

In the United States, in big events like Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day, most Americans cook Turkey or Ham,

In the Philippines, big events like fiestas, pasko (christmas) or birthday events, they cook/order Lechon.

to add more about this topic:In the western world especially USA when your parents are to old to take for them the only solution is to get them out of their residence and send them to any facilities that caters old persons until they expired and while in Pinas we have all they respect to our old folks that they stay in our residence with all the care and love until there time to go.
speaking of caring,those old folks who are admitted in a facilities are very lucky if there are family members who tried to visit once a week.This is one reason why facility center are sprouting like mushroon because of this behavior.To tell you the truth, there are some filipinos who tried to practice the western way of providing care for their old folks. Another weird practice of western folks for a son calling there parents by there real name, while in our Pinas is it regarded as disrespectful to our parents to do so.

Daughter in law and son in law call their parents in law by their name instead of calling them Mom and Dad like their own parents.I am the only daughter in law in the family who call Mom and Dad to my husband parents. Bisan akong mga sister inlaw di sila motahod sa ilang parents in law.
Parents here can't wait to kick their kids out when they reach 18. Mao pud ning inig katiguwang nga sa ila parents di pud sila na atimanon.balos balos sa panahon.

two people talking with each other on the lobby.

westerner: a passerby will never say excuse me for passing in the middle. it's their fault they're talking at a walkway anyway.

pinoy: will bend, or bow, then say "excuse me sir" "excuse me sir" like it's his fault he is passing by at the lobby. hahahahaha

i seldom see Americans or Filipinos here in the US dine around the table! Everyone gets his food and go everywhere they feel like and eat! I HATED THAT!

About the oldies who went to the nursing homes. You cant blame them for that because that was their wishes. Most Parents never wanted to bother their children. They didnt even felt bad about it. Maybe some regrets but most dont. When my husband went to the ER last year, he didnt want his children to know, I asked why? because he dont want to bother them, he said.

I dont think it is an american way but i told everyone who are close to me (including some TB peeps) that i would kill myself when i get very ill because i dont want to be the burden to everyone.

One more thing, i supported in EUTHANASIA which only happens in the west.

Bella is right about the elderly living in nursing home.  It's a standard practice here. This never mean their children don't wanna take care of them but yes it's the parents wishes not to bother the children. Besides everyone had it's on life, busy working, some move away far from home and some needed professional medical people to take care of them 24/7 in nursing home.
One thing, most elderly here live their life alone by their self so they really don't feel like asking someone to  move with them unlike in Philippines ma instant baby sitter ang grandparents kay ipang dump man didto ang mga apo usahay gani didto na papoy on. We can't guarantee that our children will take care of us when we get old. I rather have other person take care of me than my children kay base on my personal experience when my grandmother was so ill my mother ended up taking care of her in her final days.Nagsakit akong dughan nga naay tulo ka igsoon babae akong mother puro duol pag ayo gani nag serbisyo all her life akong grandmother sa usa sa iyang anak ang youngest akong tiya but sa atimanonon na ilang gipalayas. Sa akong na onserbahan sa atua dili maayo ang treatment sa mga tigulang labi na ug mga anak nag atiman daghan yawyaw ug mga mahaymahay nga mga pursosong anak man unta ang mag atiman pero  ug madungog nimo ilang yangongo ug yawyaw sa tigulang nga unta ila mang inahan sakit kaayo sa dughan.
For me I rather be taken care of stranger than my children kay at least mamatay ko nga peaceful knowing wala ko mag bother nila ug labi sa tanan dili unya ko mag hambin ug mga kahiubos sa mga anak sa akong pagpanaw. Daghan tigulang sa atua namatay naghambin ug tumang kahiubos sa treatment nga nadawat sa ilang mga anak.

Tinuod jud na Kel! Moderna na jud ka kaajo Kel.

Naa kuy amiga (kauban nako sa work sa una)sa LA nanawag nako nag hilak (medyo guwang2x na ni sha pero seksi) kay nahinawaing kay ang ija gipalangga nga anak daw di daw kaayo mo tagad niya. Ingon sha nga ija gipa nurse dayun gipaari sa Merika, naa na karon sa Arizona. Ning bisita sha didto bugnaw pa daw sa ice ang tinagdan. Nagdahom daw akong miga nga mao to nga anak ilang madaganan inig mo retire na sila.

Ako giingnan akong miga nga ayaw na jud ug dahom sa imong mga anak Tita kay naa naman na silang mga pamilya, problema etc etc. Naa man kay retirement ug si Uncle Gil (puti) mabuhi ra lagi mo. Ako pa ninyo paluol mo diri sa ako kay mag kinaunsa mo naa ra ko sa duol. Sus ning hilak noon samot akong miga kay maayo pa daw ko kay nag huna huna nila.

Same thing ra sad na nako. Ug ako ang matiguwang di jud ko magpa atiman sa akong pamilya. Mao na Kel, naa man tay ika sweldo pohon ug caregiver! mag hire nalang ta! hhahahahah! mas mo akatar pa ang caregiver kay gina sweldohan gud.! murag ako ba nga akatada kaajo ko sa akong mga tiguwang sa una kay naa may sweldo. hahahaha!

one thing that i have learned from the westerners.. stop picking on your nose!....but in China (in the south where i am based), if you are invited for a dinner in the restaurant, the guests should be noisy (talk, talk, talk)...i couldn't understand it at first but later on, my friend told me that we should be noisy so that other people surrounding us would feel envious beacuse we are having a good time and that the host should be proud of it...
