Don't Look A Gift Horse In The Mouth

The holiday gift giving spree is over and we're now left with gifts. Some are great, and some are not so great, but the best way to be happy about those gifts is to appreciate everything.

I've often read about NOT giving certain gifts because the recipient might be offended...but if you happen to be the recipient, it's best to just appreciate everything. For example, if you were given a dozen soaps, just think that these are practical gifts, would save you some money and effort in buying those soaps AND do not think that the giver is out to give you a secret message that you stink and must take a bath more often! Or if you were given something like Lipovox, think that the recipient just wants you to take care of yourself and is not secretly thinking that you are too fat!

You'd feel better if you just appreciate the things that are given to you than just criticize people for choosing gifts which don't appear in your wish list.

Hello there,

I came across your website while researching for a documentary on Filipino parenting.

My name is Donnovan Harris and I work for a television production company here in the UK, and we are making a documentary for the BBC on Family values and parenting attitudes across the world and how they differ to the family values here in the UK.

We are hoping to feature a 'role model' family from the Philippines to take part in our programme, and i am hoping with your network of young people that you may be able to put us in touch with some of these families.

It will proove to be a very rewarding experience and i would appreciate if someone could get back to me with a contact number so i can get in touch to discuss further.

my email adress is

many thanks and i will look forward to hearing from you.
