    Nagmamano pa rin ako. Kahit nga yung mga kapitbahay namin na mga bata, nagmamano sa akin kahit I am in my twenties. Important yan eh.

    Singapore-based din ako. Nakakatuwang malaman na practiced din ng mga Malays sa Singapore at Malaysia ang pagma-mano. Pero syempre, hindi pagmamano ang tawag nila. Meron din silang customs na parehas sa atin… at syempre, alam naman natin na ang roots ng Filipinos (culture and language) ay Malay.

    Kahit na mas mauunlad at urbanized na ang bansa nila, name-maintain nila ang traditional customs nila.

    the tradition came from spanish influences in our history when the spaniards offered christianity, and mano which means hand in spanish, or pagmamano was used to show ones authority of our people to the spanish colonizers.

    I’m so proud of this Pinoy custom. Even if I wasn’t raised practicing it (more beso-beso actually), I was fortunate to marry into a traditional Tagalog clan where pagmamano is second nature. And I did get envious. So now, even if my kids are city-bred, whether at home, school, church or elsewhere, I make sure they greet all elders (not just the elderly) this way. Even when we travel abroad and visit relatives and friends who are taken aback or clueless when my kids do this, I just take it upon myself to explain what this is all about. And they react with nothing but respect and admiration.
    It’s never too late to practice this custom, wherever you are.
