"Po and Opo" These two words are often heard from children addressing their parents, or when addressing an elderly and when talking to someone much older than you. Saying these two words are act of respect and one of the greatest values Filipino culture can be proud of. If you try to translate "po"and "opo" into other languages, there is no word that can compare to act of respect that these two words bring.
Philippine Street Foods, visualized. The country has quite a few snacks on offer even though the street food culture isn't as pronounced as, say, Thailand or Vietnam. I liked how this poster showcased them all in visual form!
During a very long time the Filipino people were dominated by the Spaniards during the long colonial period and after that by the United States. Because of these foreign influences, a mixed culture developed, a mixture of foreign influences with native elements. However, this hardly happened to the more isolated tribes (the so-called cultural minority groups or tribal Filipinos) and to some of the Muslim people in the south of the country. Their cultures have hardly changed.
