Can you think some of the Filipino practices, traditions, qualities or traits that you mostly admired to other people or to other country. Give us someone that you have. Traits like hospitality or something like "Basta driver, Sweet lover" or "bolero" or "chickboy" or anything you admire to your friends or families?

I am proud of the Filipino practice of using "po" and "opo" when talking to older people. It shows that most Filipinos still shows respect to their elders which other western cultures have lost. I am really concerned with the way some children from other countries treat their parents as if they have the same age. It is appalling and I am happy that at least, us Filipinos still have that respectable trait.

I agree with you, po and opo are the best way to express your respect not only to elder ones or your parents but to any people you might encounter in a day.

I like the Filipino's optimism despite of calamities, tragedies or suffering we are undergoing. We can still smile while recovering.

i've always admired how we filipinos treat the elderly and how we show respect to them especially to our parents. it's nice to see kids kiss the hands of their parents, titas, titos, grandparents, etc. that's what i'm proud of because you don't see that in other countries.

I like that Filipinos are very resilient and tough.Even if we face a lot of calamities,disasters, and political uprisings,we are still optimistic.I like that Filipinos are hospitable.Filipinos are respective to their elders.Even to elder sisters and brothers,which we call "ate" or "kuya".We make "mano" to our grandmothers and grandfathers.
