What Makes the Filipina Stand Out

TalkShop Filipina TipsThe Filipina is making waves, and not just in the arena of beauty contests, where she stands out because of beauty and brains. There is something about the Filipina – her looks, her charm, her grace that captivates. Malay, Spanish, Chinese, American, and European blood create the blend that makes the fascinating personality and attractive look. While the Filipina beauty queens enjoy a heyday, their sisters – the movers in government and industry, the caregivers all over the world, and the devoted mothers in their respective homes – continue to make the difference as they exemplify the Filipino core values in their words and action.

Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO, shares the reasons that make the Filipina stand out:

1. A deep, unwavering faith in God. It is this complete trust that gives her hope that there is always light at the end of the tunnel.

2. Family-focus. Family is her main source of happiness.

3. Resilient outlook. The Filipina remains strong against the odds. Because of necessity, she has learned to be pliant and resourceful.

4. Expertise in the home arts. She lives in the moment, making best use of time for her family. She excels in housekeeping, cooking, laundry chores, and budgeting and works tirelessly with no fanfare.

5. A big heart. She lives with a shared humanity in mind.

6. Pride in work. This mindset predisposes her to be responsible.

7. Level of education.  Despite a considerable amount of economic challenges, at least 98% of young Filipinas are educated.

8. Sensitivity. Her innate ability to sense how others feel makes her the most loving guardian and dearest friend.

9. Diplomacy and strong social skills. In general, she is not confrontational, yet she has her own way of making things work that benefit everyone.

10. Ability to laugh. Her humor allows her to prod on through life’s ups and downs.

If you are an expat working in the Philippines, get acquainted with the people, culture, and way of life.
