"Latin Heritage of Self-Esteem" People/Local Culture Tip by machomikemd

People/Local Culture, Manila: 26 reviews and 32 photos

Favorite thing: Filipinos value their self-esteem, which we inherited from our latin spaniard forebears so never criticize or argue with filipinos publicly. Most men, when so provoked, will fight for the preservation of their pride or self-esteem (Amor Propio), sometimes violently!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
