Example No. 3
When a “Pangayaw” or a new wonderer came and asks one of the native residents about the name of the direction, place, or name of person; most of the people there being asked for are eager and available for help to coach the right direction, path or to where to go next.
If the new wanderer is a foreigner, some of the Filipino’s either speaking in a “Kinamatis” way, or speaks improper way of English Languages, but still heartily voluntary to help those foreigners to teach if where is the right path. Filipino’s always share their available spare seconds of time to help those wanderers find that exact place you wanted to go through.
Example No. 4
When eating a meal, snack, etc… Filipino’s usually invite if there is any by-passers around to join eating them even though the food that he or she eats are limited.
And what usually happened is for that by-passer to say
“Thanks, but my stomach is yet full” although very hungry too.
But I have a joke on that, if I invite you to join me eating a snack while my food is very limited, and your reply is,
Then I will immediately smile and reply,
“Well Thanks for refusing, since this food that I am eating is not enough for me, limited, and I am still hungry”.

This type of Filipino Hospitalities during eating is also applied during Barrio Fiestas, where a wanderers or a “Pangayaw” are all welcome to eat every house that celebrates their barrio fiesta, although you don’t know the people there living on that house but they will gladly invite you to eat with them, and plenty of people around and mostly, are people from the cities as visitors.
But if plenty of excess food, you are one of the many lucky visitors to bring a “Take-out” food provided by the owner of the house during fiesta.
