Living In The Philippines -- The Cebu Experience

The Philippines is generally a high context culture and the USA is generally a low context culture. Actually though, a culture can be low context when compared to one culture and then a high context culture when compared to another. What do I mean by low context culture vs a high context culture? It is…
Hello, My friend! I often hear this when walking around the Philippines. I don’t hear it as much in downtown Cebu City but I do hear it a lot when I’m in a suburb or out in the province. I remember well the first time I heard it. I was in Talisay, walking across a…
Not long ago someone told me they could have any Filipina they wanted. That is a man that doesn’t understand Filipina at all. Well, I don’t claim to understand any woman but I can assure you that he nor any other man can have any Filipina they want. That is a really silly thing to…
