  • That's why majority of Filipino in the US US in Texas and Hawaii (by population) there are similarities in culture

  • React to geography now solomon island

  • People need to understand tho that the Philippines and the US are two very different countries in almost all aspects. It’s true in the US that it is not like they don’t want to take care of their parents, but most of the time, it is risky to have parents stay with them at home since people are almost too pre occupied by their jobs there. Housing, bills and taxes aren’t going to pay for themselves. At first I didn’t understand why would somebody put their parents in a nursing home, but as I witnessed how both countries are, I understand both sides. Thank you for reacting to this video! It makes me happy that other people from a different race are trying to understand our culture.

  • Please visit the Philippines! please try filipino food. would love to see your reaction

  • The big difference is in the Philippines people who are really poor will still offer and share you their meal even tho it’s the only one they have for that day.

  • This is one of the basic Asian traits that most western cultures never have. Taking care of the old ones. But if you're a bible believing Christian whether you are of any nationality and race you must adhere to this biblical principle:
    1 Timothy 5:8 says,
    "But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

  • Actually when eating, if somebody regardless of who you are that unexpectedly visits or just passing by we always say "Mangaon ta or Kain Tayo" which directly translates to "Let's eat". If you want to eat you are free to join we don't need anything in exchange.

  • Mano po is not just a respect to the elder but also asking for a blessing. Mano po is bless me.

  • Okey po! Tnk you po!

  • Filipino couple love how respectful Americans culture.

  • Po at Opo kay sarap sa tenga🥰

  • Kids not your Niece or Nephew addresses you as an Uncle and takes your hand place it on their forehead as a sign of respect.
    The "Mano po" gesture is done, when ever you leave or arrive home or when Parents leave and arrive, is still a practice until now.
    I think the Mano(hand) po gesture, evolved from the old ways when asking/giving blessings. Bowing your head down while an Elder places his Palm over the top of your head.
    Other cultures are by Kissing the back of the hand of an Elder or to someone of high Position as a gesture of respect or admiration.
    Kissing the center of the forehead, between the Eyebrows is called the 3rd Eye kiss, an ancient Egyptian gesture, when giving someone blessing, a thought of compassion , a sense of security and wellbeing to the person.

  • Seventy years ago, 6,000 Russian refugees escaped their homes and found sanctuary in the Philippines. The Philippines was also able to shelter 1,300 Jewish refugees during WWII, who fled Nazism. Furthermore, About 1,500 Vietnamese asylum-seekers now live in the Philippines.

    Even the history proves that our beloved country, The Philippines is whole heartedly opening its doors to other nations who are in need of refuge. Now it's time that the world should.know, that humble Filipinos who often get mocked and belittled by people in wealthier countries, we are the people who don't seek resentment but instead we give love and care for other people of the world.

  • I don't think we have senior drivers here as much in the city, maybe working class, jeepney drivers, truck drivers, or drivers in rurap regions, maybe.

  • I just love you guys !! 🥰

  • i miss you FINDING TOM!

  • “Po” doesn’t have a direct translation in English coz English doesn’t not have that respectful inflection it is more on formal vs informal. Also it’s NOT Mr/Mrs, we have separate word for that which is ginoo/ginang or mister/misis. “Po” is just simply added to all sentences to make it more respectful like the ending ‘yo’ in korean but in case of ‘po’ it can be added inside the sentence not just at the end. and “Opo” is the respectful way to say yes(or agree) and it’s usually taught at the very young age so that children would speak with respect specially with elderly. e.g: Hello “po”! Ako “po” si Jane Doe. (Hello, I’m Jane Doe)

  • Not sure if other Filipinos practiced it but young ones Mano Po the elder and they in return reply "Pagpalain ka anak/ Bless you child" and if the elder passes away the young ones Mano po the elder one last time as well as say "Pagpalain po kayo/Bless you".

  • There are parking spots for Senior Citizens 💖

  • Senior citizens park for free

  • Regarding our food in the Philippines.. Almost all of country we are adopted and make own version.. Korean foods, Chinese, Italian and etc.. 😅Why all Filipinas girls are getting married to American or other country men, why they want to stay in our country better than husband hometown? It is because Filipinas they want to adopted our cultures to care and respect the people no matter what.. Specially their child's.. 😊

  • Unfortunately the elderly Asians here in California are being attacked and robbed by low life cowards

  • yes senior citizens and PWDs are prioritized

  • Po is like a term for us to show respect through our speaking. There are some Asian languages that have this kind of feature like Japanese's desu/masu, Korean's yo, Thai's krab/ka, etc.

  • The word "po" or "apo" to show respect is like Sir/Madam in english. Filipinos usually in showing respect when speaking with elders/strangers address them in the plural form like for example: Sino Sila? instead of Sino ka? (Who are they? instead of Who are you?) and kayo instead of ka and other words to that effect that do not appear bastos or disrespectful to the receiver.

  • Senior Citizens, Disable, Pregnant Woman and sometimes People with babies have special lane/line.

  • no matter the circumstances "family is still family"

  • You guys from the south, Louisiana, you're good!

  • I changed my opinion about retirement homes now that I'm older. Sometimes sending the elders to a retirement home is better because the children are usually busy. In retirement homes they have social life and their health is monitored better. However if my parents are still alive, I think I wouldn't send them to a retirement home if they don't have complicated health issues.

  • Filipinos are offended if you come to their house and refuse to eat. No matter how poor they are when you come to their house they will prepare a meal for you…

  • I am Filipino but we still have traditions that It still hits differently like ligawan (courtship), pamamanhikan (when two family makes agreement when a couple decided to marry), bayanihan (example is when a family transfer to another location and need to have their structured house be carried to another location or a community would cook the food that will be shared in a wedding or gathering and.. Not accepting payment for any of this services) and other more

  • 90% of Filipino family never ever let our mother and father to be alone even they have sick or forgetful or do bad thing

  • It is time for you guys to try our food! Pls. Try jollibee or authentic Filipino food. Chicken or pork adobo, lumpia and more.

  • If you haven't come to the Philippines, you should. It's vlogger central right now over here. 🙂

  • Yep. The dude is sadly describing his EuroAmerican "individual" culture. It is very common, I gotta say.

  • Philippines has a dual use parking spot. Seniors and disabled use the same spot

  • 100% fact about Southern people. I did a Summer internship in Baton Rouge and I was taken aback how the people there are compared to other parts of the US. They were inviting, friendly, down to earth, etc. I can never pass by one of them without them greeting me. They're lovely people.

    Oh and I haven't found a place outside of Louisiana that can make a decent Jambalaya…I can't believe I never got tired of it.

  • Senior citizens and handicapped persons in the Philippines are given huge discounts for a wide range of goods and services as well as lots of privileges by law.
    Really beneficial for a person with disability like me.

  • you may want to check the viideo 8 days in 8 minutes in the philippines. sending love from manila, philippines!

  • Actually PO doesnt mean anything. It's just a word you insert on your phrase, sentences, any response.

    English: what are you doing?
    Tagalog: Ano ang ginagawa mo?
    Tagalog2: Ano PO ang ginagawa mo?

    Eng: Can I go?
    Tag: Pwede umalis?
    Tag2: Pwede PO umalis?

    While PO is just a word you insert to show respect this is how you say yes or no with respect.

    Regular YES is OO, NO is HINDI.
    With respect: Yes – OPO / No – HINDI PO.


  • Mano po is also used on older relatives and god parents
    So that you can ask for money

  • Senior citizens counter plus 20% discount on their food. Some cities offer free cinema for senior citizens

  • will you react to wake up in philippines it feature a lot of province

  • Kissing of hands or placing the hand in your forehead is not just for grandparents. We do this too to our parents, older siblings, Uncles, Aunties, older relatives, even the parents of bf/gf if you visit their house.

  • Po, is used as a sign of respect too.

  • "Utang na loob" is like the reciprocation of the good deeds done to you by your family or friends.

  • Fun Fact: The first Filipino settlement in the US was in Louisiana in 1763. Filipinos who served as slaves in Spanish Ships escaped and formed a settlement in Saint Malo, South East of New Orleans. It is also the oldest Asian settlement in the US.

  • Actually, po does not really have a direct translation. It also does not mean mr/mrs or please. But it is used in phrases and sentences to signify respect. Usually used to those who are older or even those higher in position (in work and such). It is commonly used to your parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, teachers, bosses, and even random strangers.
