Cultural Note

One way of greeting your elder in the Filipino culture is the act of "pagmano."  Youngsters greet their parents, grandparents, godparents, and sometimes uncles and aunts by taking the elder's right hand and placing it on their forehead.  This is also a request for a blessing from the elders and a grateful acceptance of that blessing by the youngsters.

Kumusta ka?

Halina't magsaya.

Pumalakpak, Pumalakpak,

Ituro and paa.

Padyak sa kanan,

Padyak sa kaliwa.

Umikot ka, umikot ka

Humanap ng iba.
