  • There are Filipenos, Filipenas, and Filipenonas.
  • A beautiful face can be ruined by a smile.
  • A baby's sex can be decided after birth.
  • People who speak other languages don't understand their own countrymen's accented English any better than I do.
  • You don't have to know someone--at all--to marry them.
  • A sniff is as good as a kiss.
  • Many young Japanese have orange hair.

  • Dogs can tell if you've ever eaten one.
  • Cattle rustling is alive and well.

Hmm, yes mom there was a certain grip I thought I had on certain ideas before I moved to Saipan. I guess sometimes experience is the only real reason we dont know everything.
