The Philippines is known for many things – its beautiful beaches, delicious food, and most importantly its warm, loving, and talented people. As much as we as a nation are proud of our natural wonders and resources, nothing screams Pinoy pride more than knowing someone has Filipino blood.
These three Panalong Pinoy traits are just some of the many unique characteristics that make it easy to spot a dugong Pinoy in any crowd.
Filipino homes extend to the home next to you and the home next to that. It’s common to see Filipinos knocking on each other’s doors to ask for some extra salt or rice when one household has run out. We grow our communities as much as we grow the individual family, always making everyone feel welcome. This extends to schools and the workplace, too.
2. Ingenuity and Resourcefulness
Many Filipinos are faced with unequal opportunity to a comfortable lifestyle due to apparent poverty. This reality has made us work even harder and more inventive. In fact, many successful Pinoy businesses have their own humble beginnings and are now paying it forward by providing fellow Filipinos with job opportunities. The recent global health crisis has spotlighted our people’s ingenuity yet again, with initiatives like community pantries and other online efforts to help each other cope.
3. Family-Centered Values
Family is a big presence in every Filipino’s life. Unlike western culture where children leave their homes when they are of a certain age, multiple generations of Filipinos, sometimes even extended family, usually live in one household. With such proximity to family, we learn the values of respect for our elders, hard work to provide for family, and loyalty to the bloodline early on. Therefore, even when a family member moves away, they still stay connected and care for each other.
All these characteristics can make anyone proud to have Filipino blood, and it is this pride that binds our people together no matter where we are in the world. Thus, it’s important to keep that blood healthy with proper diet, exercise, and supplements.
