    This is a saying in the olden times that it is better to be friends with the common people than with the wealthy people because the common people have genuine friendship. I guess it is not true but I have noticed that it is easier to be friends with the little people since they are easier to please. On the bad side, the little people may be asking favors from you from time to time.

    It is good to know the people by being friends with them but take note that there is a language barrier so you cannot really fathom the actual message sometimes. But observing the face can give you a hint of what their feeling is towards you.

    The language barrier can be overcome with a person who is willing to act as an interpreter or informal translator. Especially for foreigners who know just little or no Tagalog at all, it is important that someone would provide assistance in the translation to avoid petty misunderstanding.
