If you have travelled around the world, there’s a good chance you have already come across the loving hospitality of the Filipinos. They are employed worldwide in the service industry and for a very good reason; their attitude towards making people happy is second to none. This natural behavior of being so kind to strangers starts at home. They live in very close quarters and often the whole family will sleep in one room, not because there is no space, but because that’s how they like it. They are much more comfortable being close to others and this is very apparent if you ever travel on a ‘Jeepney’.
You can walk around the busy streets and markets of Moalboal, day or night, soaking up all of the local culture. From chickens roasting on an open flame grill to hanging rice, it is all available on every street corner and you never feel intimidated to purchase anything. In contrast you can take a trip up to the mountains and you will find small, little, sleepy villages surrounded by farms and vegetable stalls. But what is constant, no matter where you go, will be the never faulting hospitality of the Filipinos.
