I ORIGINALLY BOUGHT THE ORIGINAL PHILIPPINE CULTURE SHOCK BOOK BECAUSE I WAS PLANNING TO TRAVEL TO THE PHILIPINES TO MEET A FILIPINO GIRL WHO IS NOW MY WIFE JOECY IN WHICH I MET THROUGH HER AUNT RITA WHO LIVES IN RENO NV & I HAVE TO SAY I REALLY ENJOYED READING IT SO MUCH I READ IT SEVERAL MORE TIMES IT HELPED ME TO BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT TO EXPECT AS WELL AS WHO & WHAT TO AVOID BUT MUCH MORE IMPORTANT IT HELPED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TYPE OF LIFE JOECY LIVED & HOW TO AVOID DOING & SAYING SOMETHING REALLY STUPID & MAKING A FOOL OF MYSELF & IT ALSO HELPED ME AVOID HURTING OR INSULTING SOMEONE . I PERSONALY SUGGEST ANYONE WHO'S GOING TO EITHER VISIT , TRAVEL OR LIVE IN THE PHILIPPINES FOR ANY EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME SHOULD REALLY READ THIS BOOK IT COULD REALLY SAVE YOU FROM OR AVOIDING ANY PHYSICAL OR LIFE THREATENING DANGER FROM HANGING OUT OR SOCIALIZING WITH THE WRONG TYPES OR GROUPS OF PEOPLE
This is a great book to pick up if you have never been to the philippines. It helps you understand the Pinoy culture and customs. It was a great help for me to understand my fiance's daily lifestyle and learn about another part of this wonderful world. What you read will surely be interesting and rewarding to learn. You will learn also some vocabulary, and get to understand filipinos. Although you may read and try to picture their lives, nothing compares to being there and experiencing and seeing everything for yourself. I thought I was prepared when I made my trip after reading this book, but in reality you can never be prepared for real life. I give it a ***** rating!
