People in the Philippines are easy when it comes to time. When you want to set up an appointment it is wise to do this weeks ahead and send a kind reminder 1 day before. When meeting up with them never rush things.
Filipinos don’t usually arrive on time especially on social gatherings. They think punctuality during parties mean that
they’re too excited about the food, making them seem like “patay-gutom,” the term used for people who haven’t eaten for a long time.
They like to take things slow and easy. Before doing business they want to get to know you first. So whatever you do stay cool and take it easy. Do not rush things and take your time with them. This will always be appreciated!
