If you have a surprise visitor/s? How do you treat them, if you are not prepared?

^_^ you know almost all of the Filipino is very hospitable.. even if they have little food they will offer it to their visitor.. thats how "Pinoy and Pinays" treat their visitors..

For me, it really depends on who it is. If it is a good friend, then I am very happy to see them and will ask them to come in and sit for a while. I would offer them anything I had and do all I could to make them comfortable. However, if it is an annoying person that I definitely have not invited over, I would probably let them know that I am busy or have other plans. I find it very rude when someone just shows up unannounced, especially if you don't have that kind of familiar relationship with them. Then again, if it is my fiance's Mom or something, I make sure to be as nice and respectful as I can, making sure that she feels welcome. If it is someone who is a salesman or something like that, I try to be pleasant, but firm. And I never invite them into my home.

Hmmm Its not so tough to treat a surprise visitor, I can treat any visitor even if he comes in the mid-night with nice mouth watering then prepared dishes apart from being very kind and affectionate to them. I love cooking and serving people, hence I always look for an opportunity for that. Whenever a visitor drops in surprisingly what I do is cook some dish or prepare ginger tea and offer that to him/her. Or sometimes I just cut fruits and offer them. If it is during the dinner time or evening times, I prepare snacks and offer the same to the visitor, if nothing is available to prepare then i will prepare something out of rice adding some spices to it. This makes me and my visitor very happy.

Well I tend to get unexpected visits now that my daughter is here and have gotten them more frequent and all I can say is that I am happy when any visitor comes by and try to make them feel the most welcomed I can by being a good host.

If you mean a friend that stops by unexpectedly then I will invite them in to sit. After they are sitting I will make some coffee or get some other kind of drinks for them. Just be friendly and offer what I have.

at least i give them a drink, and have a little conversation and then ask for what purpose. But if the visitor look suspicious then i won't accept it.

Depends if I like that certain visitor. LOL! If I like the visitor, I'd go out of my way to at least find some snacks or help them feel comfortable and all. if I don't like the visitor, I'd hint that I'm actually on my way out. LOL!
