“Filipinos don’t have nose”
November 30, 2017 4:36am CST
My friend works as an OFW(Overseas Filipino Worker) in Dubai. Upon her arrival at her workplace, her coworker asked what her nationality is. My friend proudly answered ‘I’m from the Philippines’. The Ethiopian coworker was surprised and remarked ‘I thought you’re from Indonesia.’ My friend, out of curiosity, asked why. Her coworker said, ‘Because Filipinos don’t have nose.’ Ouch. Lol Photo is my friend’s look alike. ;)

if your friend looks like marian rivera in the picture (an actress who is mestiza because her father is spanish) then her surprise was probably double. i do remember my mother talking about a relative who worked in europe back when there were still very few ofws and people there were always curious about her nose that seems to lack a bridge.
@cahaya1983 yes, exactly. she wouldn't represent the average filipino, either, because she's the opposite (mestiza). i know channel 2 exports their television series to other asian countries. sometimes they change the title, but i don't know if they dub it in english or the local language.
