After World War II, Filipino war veterans and their families, business people and specialists such as medical personnel or engineers left their devastated country and migrated to Canada, West Europe or the USA (Gonzales 1998, p.30). Political and economic instability in the Philippines at the end of the 1960s, caused by corruption as well as declaration of martial law in 1972 by President Ferdinand Marcos, influenced more decisions to migrate. It was chiefly the urban middle class who migrated primarily to the USA but European countries during the 1960s and 1970s also became destinations to Philippine migration (Gonzales 1998, p.31

Dear fellow Senators:
The American eagle has landed in the Philippines. ln the first days we were not sure if the US was there to liberate or occupy the Filipino people. At first, it seemed like liberation. The Philippines had been a Spanish colony for several centuries. The Americans chased out the Spanish, and the future seemed clear. The leader of the Filipino revolutionaries, Emilio Aguinaldo, was ready to march into the Philippine capital with the US and claim Filipino independence. But it didn't happen. We had second thoughts. Now the US has to stay. Should this have happened? Is the US doing the right thing by annexing this island country? The answer, my fellow Senators, is a strong

A follow-up date is generally a sign that the girl is interested on the guy. As Filipinos are sensitive people and try to avoid directly hurting people as much as they can, they are not very frank when having to tell something that may hurt the other person. There are times that a girl can’t directly tell a boy that she is not interested on him anymore. She may find an opportunity to tell him about it by the next date. Others, especially some teens, might ask the help of a friend to tell the guy about it. A guy who is not interested on a girl anymore would normally do the same thing. Intimacy might be more apparent during follow-up dates, especially when the couple has been dating for a few months already.

It is quite common for immigrants to a new country to retain their old customs and to speak their first language amid fellow immigrants, even if all present are comfortable in their new language. This occurs because the immigrants are eager to preserve their own heritage, which includes not only customs and traditions but also language.
