Personalan: Filipinos Connecting to Filipinos

If there is one trait that places Filipinos above any other expatriate communities, it is their strong sense of brotherhood. The Filipnos' penchant to use a lot of terms of endearment is a manifestation of this. Thus, it is not surprising to find "'Tol", "Bro", "Brod", "Pare" and "Tsong" among Filipino men, for example. All these catch titles can literally translate to "brother". Therefore, among different expatriate communities, notice the unique sense of affinity among Filipinos.

Meet them right here in Personalan where connecting to a fellow Filipino should no longer be difficult. Share stories and experiences. Exchange pleasantries.
