The Filipino hospitality is legend and our family ties, which are bound tight from cradle to grave, may also be legendary.
Franchises like Singaporean brands (Bread Talk, Toastbox), Korean brands (Face Shop, Samsung, etc) and Japanese brands (UCC, Yoshinoya, etc.) inevitably bring with them the characteristics of the nation of origin.
