Filipinos are well-known for their quite an impressive list of traits. It was second son’s assignment to make an album of Filipino positive traits. And as usual, his work was very interesting to look at.
He turned this “never have been used”* desk calendar into an album. (*that was exactly his term when he asked me to use the calendar). The calendar even had a bright red envelope.
He covered the calendar’s pages with colored paper and used some colored pens and stickers. And who would have thought that this album was once a calendar?
Filipinos are known for this trait. They are very pleasant and warm to visitors– foreigners or locals alike. they make certain that their visitors are comfortable and would feel that they are part of the family.
Despite the economic crisis or calamities, being cheerful is one trait that never becomes less for most Filipinos. Some traits become hardly felt, but being cheerful remains with time.
faith in God
Filipinos show great faith in God. They would turn to God, pray and wait for their answered prayer. They pray for a bountiful harvest. They pray for the healing of their loved ones’ illnesses. They pray for protection. They pray for wishes to come true — pass the board exams, fiancé or boyfriend, and even for good business. Filipinos believe in answered prayers and miracles because they have that strong faith in God.
