• Laughter spices the life of the Filipino. Without it, life for him becomes a mere routine and brings about sheer boredom. Laughter or giggling is commonly used to relieve tension in embarrassing or emotionally charge situations.
• Westerners find this mannerism disturbing.
• It seems inappropriate for a Filipino seaman to laughingly announce that he has an accident, yet it does happen. Such behaviour does not mean that accident is being treated lightly, and in fact, it means quite the opposite.
• Laughing or giggling is acceptable behaviour for a Filipino in tension-filled situations. Besides laughing when they are happy, Filipinos also laugh when they feel shy or are embarrassed.
• Laughter, to the Filipino, can be kind of psychological therapy in time of difficulties, problems and untoward incidents.
• Filipinos are said to be one rare breed of people who can laugh even at themselves. Laughing at himself is one of the more important coping mechanisms of the Filipino.
• Sometimes playful, sometimes cynical, he manages to laugh even at times when the Westerner would consider laughter inappropriate.
