Found this interesting piece of information in a travel guide about Filipinos’ unique body language. Tell me if this is true:
Filipinos signify ‘Yes’ by raising the eyebrows or lifting the head upwards slightly. The hand movements which mean ‘Go away’ to us signify ‘Come here’ in the Philippines.
The thumb and middle finger are not used to indicate numbers. Instead of pointing with your finger, indicate discreetly by pointing pursed lips in the direction you want.
One hisses to gain attention, for example, when calling a waiter in a restaurant. When you want to pay the bill, draw a rectangle in the air with your index finger and thumb.
If Filipinos don’t understand a question, they open their mouths.
So what do you think? Very unique, isn’t it?
