Pinoy Table Manners Punishable...???

i read this post of jmom (http://inourkitchen.blogspot.com/) na nabasa niya from ms. sassy, a couple of days (or should i say nights?) ago when i couldn’t sleep, i got so engrossed in reading di ko na namalayan ang passing of time.

grabe naman ang trato nila sa bata, imagine 7 years old lang siempre pa traumatized yun! di ko lang maintindihan kung bakit the school principal at yung lunch monitor ek-ek na yun found it ‘disgusting” to eat with two utensils – spoon and fork! i always eat with these two utensils – kayo - paano kayo kumain? tapos a friend of mine from australia forwarded me the site too, so talagang umikot na ang isyu na ito.

intriga tuloy ako how those two school authorities eat – sabi nila canadians eat with one utensil lang daw?! marami rin ang nag-comment – read niyo na lang ha.

if the school principal who said luc (the boy) “eats like a pig (because he is using two utensils?) eh how would he describe those people who eats in fancy/classy restaurants with not just two, but a couple of utensils on the table? di ba sa mga sossy/classy hotels and restaurant merong 2-3 spoons/fork aside pa sa knife and soup spoon na meron din 2-3 glasses???? (kaya ayokong kakain sa mga class na resto eh – daming gadgets! he he he).

eh di lalo na siguro pag nakita pa niya how other nationalities eat, with bare hands na pag naman nakita mo eh di ka na rin talaga makakain with them! di naman ako nagmamaselan pero naku kung mahina ang sikmura mo – talagang go hungry ka na lang :).

true nagkakamay din tayo pero sossy ang pagkakamay natin di ba? pati yun tinuro sa atin – dapat dulo lang ng mga daliri ang sasayaran ng food.

remember ko tuloy yung kasama ko sa trabaho dati… somewhere from africa sila – kakain sila with their native dish tapos merong sarsa yung food nila – pero nagkakamay sila and they are eating from one plate pa! sa dami ng plato na dinala ko sa opis isang pinggan lang ang ginagamit eh! ayaw sigurong maghugas – hi hi hi …. pero eto ka – kapag nag-order naman kami ng kentucky chicken – ano ka? hanap sila ng fork n knife habang kami ng mga indyano eh dive lang sa chicken . . . ha ha ha sabi tuloy ng isang dyano sa kanila – pwede mong kainin with hands yan why look for fork n knife pa?

if anyone out there could provide some pic of how Canadians (not all daw!)eat – sana naman i-post nila… para magkaalamanan….

“eats like a pig” . . . eh di naman gumagamit ng kutsara at tinidor ang mga baboy ah! saan kaya sila nakakita ng pig eating with spoon n fork? wala lang – gusto ko lang malaman malay niyo mapuntahan ko para naman makita ko “how it is to eat like a pig!”

Ako,its not nice to call a person a pig. Even that person acts like one.Be quiet ako if I see one, and just roll my eyes.
Yon na lang pag butt in sa pila is pig way, pagkalat ng basura sa airport lounge, pag dikit ng chewing gum sa bus seats, kababoyan (piggish yan)lol

Seriously, ha, in every country, they got standards of social living baga.
Sa england, table manners: children are to be seen, but not to be heard, and if a child speaks, lalo na full mouth of food, it is a disgrace sa parents.
Ma shock ang mga ka table, saang lahi ng baboy ito galing???!lol

ay oo ganyan ka snob sa Europe, kasi nga galing sa royalties ang mga ancestors.
For me, sa nangyari sa Canada,it is not nice to call Luc a Pig.
But the parents of Luc has errors there.They should teach the child also in eating meals with knife and fork. Kasi sa resto, ganyan na ang way of eating eh. Sa resto ba, they still eat with spoon and fork in Canada?
Then:
The child is in a school which has rules. Ten times, the child was told off, still he does it.What is it, why he continues?
Parents must educate their children also, to the society where they belong.In one's home you do what you like, but not in school.
The school trains ALL kids to be sociable according to Canada's standard of table manners.
ANG INYONG LOLA:
bow.
