Manufacturer Description

The Philippines, an island nation of Southeast Asia, encompasses over 7000 different land masses, and is home to approximately 100 million people...including Bud Brown. An American school teacher with a yearning for travel, Bud has lived among the Filipino people for some time, and certainly long enough to amass a wonderful collection of endearing tales and unique insights. He draws upon some of these observations and vignettes to bring you this enlightening book.

Through Bud's eyes explore cultural customs and traditions that set the Filipino people apart from any other community on the planet. Learn the differences between North American English and that used in the Philippines; the comparison is educational, but equally comical. Visually take part in a quick study of customary hand gestures and expressions that speak volumes, without uttering a sound. Pay attention – a fun little quiz is included to test your worldly skills.

In a casual, informal dialogue with the reader the author shares his love of the people, their ancient culture, and the country, he's learned to call home. He's immersed himself in their language and become “Kuya” (Older Brother) to many of the local Filipinos, who have embraced him as a friend and neighbor.

You too will have a newfound love and appreciation for these humble islanders, as you take this short literary journey through the perceptive eyes of a foreigner, whose transformation is nearly complete.

Buy this book and begin to discover for yourself the tender tales, humorous anecdotes, and “mind shocks” that you'll meet within its pages. Who knows, maybe you'll unearth within your own heart, as Bud Brown has, an eagerness to learn and share. Come along – there's no better time...
