Learning Filipino etiquette


“Mano po” is a gesture showing respect towards the elderly. Growing up in the US, I’ve slowly lost the old customs.. being back in the Philippines brings it all back. Need to re-adopt some of them!

    The Turks do (or did — I’m remembering this from my childhood) something very similar, except they kiss the back of the hand first and then touch it to their forehead.
