Can The Filipino do The Filipina a humongous favor?

Dear Filipino,

I've been trying to call you and you are NOT answering!  Something came up here at work -- so can you please pick up the kids later? 

Thanks,
The Filipina

P.S.  And please pass by the grocery -- we've run out of Datu Puti vinegar and bagoong!

Dearest Miss Universe Ng Buhay Ko*,

Yes, of course!  Whatever you say, dear!  ;-)

*Miss Universe Ng Buhay Ko 
From the album: "Hotdog: Greatest Hits"
Translated by: The Filipino

Ikaw ang Miss Universe ng buhay ko 
     You are the Ms. Universe of my life
Ilang beses ko ba namang sasabihin sa 'yo  
     How many times do I have to tell you?
Sa piling mo, tanggal ang lumbay 
     In your bosom, away goes the gloom
May kasiyahang walang kapantay
     There is happiness that is unrivalled
 Ikaw ang miss universe ng buhay ko
     You are the Ms. Universe of my life

Ikaw ang miss universe ng buhay ko 
     You are the Ms. Universe of my life
Ilang beses ko ba namang sasabihin sa 'yo   
     How many times do I have to tell you?
Sakit ng ulo'y tanggal bigla
     Headaches immediately disappear
Sa piling mo'y lungkot nawawala 
     In your bosom, sadness departs
Ikaw ang miss universe ng buhay ko 
     You are the Ms. Universe of my life

Aanhin ko ang ganda ng iba 
     What will I do with others' beauty?
Maduduling lang ang aking mga mata, butas pa ang bulsa 
     My eyes will just get crossed, my pockets also torn
At 'di ba sabi ng mga matatanda 
     And didn't the elders say
Ingat lang tayong mga bata
     We the young just have to be careful
Kagandahan, tulad ng suwerte, mawawala 
     Beauty, like luck, will fade away

Ikaw ang miss universe ng buhay ko 
     You are the Ms. Universe of my life
Ilang beses ko ba namang uulitin sa 'yo? 
     How many times do I have to repeat it with you?
Malinaw na malinaw, ngayon at ano mang araw 
     It's very, very clear, today and any other day
Ikaw ang miss universe ng buhay ko 
     You are the Ms. Universe of my life
Ikaw ang miss universe ng buhay ko 
     You are the Ms. Universe of my life.

In the Philippines, we have close-knit families. Family is very important. And somehow it’s engrained in us that we have to take care of and support each other, each member in the family. And that is true with our parents. When we were young, they took care of us, so it’s our turn to take care of them when they get older. It’s engrained in us. So we don’t mind taking care of our parents.

My point is, we filipinos, when we do a favor to someone, we do it by heart, and not expecting for any return. And those attitude were carefully shaped since we were just kids.
