people who came to the Philippines most if not all know how warm people here are. Even to the extent of sacrificing their own need just to make the guest comfortable. There are so many scenario that i want to share.
Scene One at Home : When i was in high school we had a visitor "that was my very first time for me to have my own computer in my room so don't really want to get out of it even for just a minute" but we had this visitor a couple, they are actually distance relative. at home we only have five bedrooms. My mom and dads room, mine, my two sisters room and the maids room. in other word every time we have visitors one sister has to sleep with other sister and since i'm the first child i'm the first to be asked to move (ugh) and that's what happen this time i don't want to but with the "do it" look in my mothers eyes then i have to do it. though i guess i'm being a little bit selfish on that...
Scene Two at The Hospital: i had a friend who came here to the Philippines to visit and then he was so unlucky because he got sick and we are in the middle of no where down south of this country, even me that is my very first time to go to that place so i know nothing at all. anyway we went to the hospital and to make the story short there are lots of patient using the corridor as a room but then they gave one room to my friend and i know the reason just because he is a foreigner and the nurse told me that the other patient in the hospital are used to that situation and they know that my friend is not (sure he's not) but the thing is we were the last one to arrive but anyway that is what we call hospitality.
Scene Three The Line : "this one makes me real mad" i was with an american friend i SM (shoe Mart in Baguio) and the taxi line is too long but since this friend of mine is disable we fall in line to the disable line and we got the taxi first but what piss me off is that this american friend proudly and boldly said "see i told you i can do everything that i want in here, see i can even get a taxi first just because of my skin yeah man just because i'm american" what happen next is a bit funny because the man who let us take the taxi first said "no we let you take the taxi first because you are disable and we pity you" every one in the line laugh including those white guys (3 of them)... The hospitality in there is that they did not mock on my friend so hard... if thats in the other part of the world he will be mocked for his attitude.
Scene Four at My Aunts Home: this happen when i visited my cousin in Isabela where in it's too hot and knowing that i'm from Baguio (the coldest place in the country) my aunt put me in a room (which is her sons room) that have aircon while her son sleep in a room with just electric fun. of course i want that kind of thing or treatment who wants to sleep with no aircon in a place s hot as isabela but i still feel guilty about my cousin sleeping in another room without it.
***actually there are more but i feel sleepy now hahaha so i will write some more later when i get home***
