I. Titleo f the case study: TOPICAL HUT

II. Time Context

Tropical hut is one, if not the oldest, fast food joint in the Philippines. It started in 1962 when the Que family had this Idea of putting up a coffee shop within the confines of their supermarket, thus,Tropical Hut Hamburger was born. Now, it has more than 50 branches nationwide and still growing,proving that it can hold its stance in the fast food arena. In 1962, the business has grown into a grocerystore and expanded rapidly into a Supermarket. It was also in this year that the concept of a CoffeeShop within the Supermarket was launched with the introduction of Tropical Hut Hamburger.



Before Jollibee, before McDonald's, before Burger King, before anyone else, it seems, there is Tropical Hut Hamburger. And hamburger it is, indeed the best it could ever be. But that was long ago. Now, Tropical is just a vestige of its former self. Everyone suspects that their hamburger is where Jollibee's came from - They almost have the same taste. Their fried chicken is also just like Jollibee's, but this time it wasT ropical who copied it. Tropical has other food selections, like Bistek (a local version of beef steak or strips) and other sandwiches. However, the place is not world class. It is not as clean or as well kept as McDonald's or Jollibee. And they have a very poor image. Although food is good .

Another is the utensils use in the kitchen are dirty. They violates the social responsibility of the company as well as the image keeping task.…...

Filipino Arts

... known for his historical pieces. He was one of the first Filipino modernists along with Galo Ocampo and Victorio C. Edades who broke away from Fernando Amorsolo's romanticism of Philippine scenes. To others, Francisco's art "is a prime example of linear painting where lines and contours appear like cutouts." Having been able to enroll under sir Rafael Dolor, I was able to open doors when it came to the art of painting. Before, lines were just lines to me. But if you put them together, it would create a masterpiece. Suddenly, my world was not just all about using the internet, hanging out with friends and the like. There was more to life than doing that. I would consume my time doing something insignificant while others like Botong delegated their time through painting. Their patience and love for art was truly admirable. A lot of men underestimate the capabilities of Filipinos. Nowadays, they only see our country as overpopulated and dirty. What they do not know is that we breed maestros and artists with different skills that could make the world stunned by these people from this side of the world, the pearl of the orient sea. Watching movies is my favorite pastime. They say that these shows are created to relieve us of our stress and to get us away from our school works and basically our lives. True enough, I would often watch American, Japanese, Thai and even Chinese Kung Fu movies because they would be of my interest. I realized lately that I have underestimated......

Japanese-Filipino Children Asian Social Science Vol. 7, No. 9; September 2011 A Brief Research Note: Some Issues on Japanese-Filipino Children Shiro Ito Ph.D. Student, Department of Sociology, College of Social Sciences and Philosophy University of the Philippines, Diliman, Philippines E-mail: Received: March 27, 2011 Abstract This qualitative case study aims to explore reasons that led to the absence of the Japanese father from the family, how it affects the present situation of Japanese-Filipino children (JFC), and to conceptualize socioemotional factors that influence JFC’s life. The study covers current situations and socioemotional and socioeconomic problems of JFC and used standard qualitative techniques to gather field data. This study has identified that JFC are shaped by sociocultural and socioeconomic differences between Japan and the Philippines that play in individuals’ lives and decisions. The union of two people from different cultures and nationalities coupled with socioeconomic struggles and each individual’s underlying reasons to unite (marriage/cohabitation) may also lead to their separation. Furthermore, the study identified several unique socioemotional factors of the JFC as well: perceived unique ethnicity, the retention of a degree of love to the father who abandons them, and the need to see their fathers instead of feeling hatred and anger. Despite their abandonment, the JFC feel proud of their Japanese culture. Finally, JFC feel...

Being Filipino

...Being Filipino and growing up in America, my trip to the Philippines was an experience I will never forget. This was the first time I would be traveling to the place of my heritage. I was gladly going to live there for 2 years to finish my studies. I did not know too much of the Philippines, only the stuff my mother has been telling me about. She explained to me, that the weather was different in the Philippines. She told me it was very humid. That it was so humid, it was like walking in a sauna. This has become very useful, for I knew what type of clothes to bring over there. But as the day of my flight came closer, I could not help but feel nervous. I never met any of my relatives over there, nor did I know anything about the place. Then I calmly told myself, it was going to be alright, that it was going to be an adventure; a thirteen hour adventure. The time has finally come; thus it was time for me to fly Philippines. As I looked for my seat in the plane, I could not help but accidently bump into some people as they were putting their bags in the overhead compartments. I continued to walk down the aisle, frequently looking at my boarding pass, and continually searching for where my seat could be. After a couple of minutes of searching, I finally found my seat. I was happy to know that I had an aisle seat. This was convenient for me because of bathroom purposes. As I sat down, I noticed that there was a small screen in front of me. It was playing a vaguely video on...

The Miseducation of the Filipino

...Thyra Marie C. Escueta July 26, 2013 BABRC1-1D Prof. Villar REACTION PAPER The Miseducation of the Filipino By Prof. Renato Constantino On the content, it’s really not a waste of time reading the article, you will learn not only new vocabulary but also your eyes will be opened to a fact that has long existed in which our eyes are just so blinded to see, because we are just so pre-occupied with the idea that the Americans are totally of help. But then again, we must remember that the world is created with symmetry, that in every evil, there’s goodness, and that in the presence of advantage, there’s a disadvantage. According to the article, it seems that foreigners, especially the Americans influence us in different ways. They sway us in terms of speech, sense of style and clothing, food we eat, the movies we watch and even how we think and decide. And for that, I can say that our minds are somewhat manipulated by the Western culture and thus, we think and act as if we were like them. I agree with Renato Constantino's statement in which I would quote "Education is a vital weapon of people striving for economic emancipation, political independence and cultural renaissance." One must be aware of the country's problems, understand the solution and be caring and courageous...

Filipino Management Styles

...Management style tends towards the paternalistic as is often found in strongly hierarchical cultures. However, managers need to be aware of certain strong Filipino characteristics, which underpin personal relationships within the country. Firstly, people are extremely careful to ensure that others do not suffer embarrassment or any sense of shame (hiya) as a result of their own actions or their inability to meet the expectations of others. It is considered to be very bad behavior to criticize another in public, as this is the greatest insult that can be given. To be openly criticized in public results in a loss of self-esteem and personal dignity. Any attack on an individual's self-esteem may have to be revenged. Therefore, managers are keen to treat subordinates with respect whilst, at the same time, maintaining the dignity of the position of boss. Instructions will be given clearly and precisely and subordinates will be expected to follow those instructions with little or no discussion. Secondly, relationship bonds run deep in Filipino culture and the manager expects loyalty. In return for this loyalty the boss will look after the interests of those subordinates. It is very much a reciprocal arrangement. ACCORDING TO THE ARTICLE, THERE ARE DIFERENT APPROACHES AS TO HOW THE MANAGEMENT IN THE PHILIPPINES IS BEING DONE. Weaknesses of Pinoy Workers: 1. Walang bilib sa sarili (No confidence in oneself) 2. Dikdik sa Colonial Mentality (Indoctrinated with...

Filipino Theater (Early Beginnings)

...Indigenous Theater The Rituals The native Filipino beliefs are central to gods and deities, who controls forces of nature, the passages of all living things and the vital activities of the tribe. And to communicate to gods special mediums are to be used. The babaylans, tambalan, albularyo are these medium. There are many rituals but the ritual which is drama is where the shaman goes into a trance and kills the sacrificial animal common to these rituals which represent as the supplicant or humble petitioner to the gods to provide for the people. Throughout centuries rituals are known as – pag-aanito, anituan, anito-baylan, bunong, pagdidiwata and a host of other indigenous lexis. Rituals are used for variety of reasons. To cure sickness, for a bountiful harvest, rites of passage, marriage and a host of other reasons, all involve carrying out sacrifices, chants, prayers, offerings that aims to appease, please the higher being. If these rituals do not get the sick cured, they do not deserve to get well. The Aeta of Florida Blanca has a ritual where a shaman dances to “scare” away sickness. The sick sit on the grounds in rows covered in red cloth as the gitada (guitar) plays and the manganito (priest) dance frighten the sickness causing spirits away with bolos or offers them food in banana leaf to leave the infirm. Towards the end of the dance, the long red cloth is pulled symbolizing the “departure” of the spirit. Rituals connected to harvest usually involve...

Supremo Filipino Movie Reflection Paper

...Reflection Paper about Supremo Supremo is a Filipino movie which shows the Spanish era in the Philippines and how the Philippines fought for its independence. Andres Bonifacio was the main character of the movie because it focused on how the Katipunan, which was led by Bonifacio, formed and struggled to fight the Spanish military even though they were severely disadvantaged in terms of training and weaponry. The film also showed the devastation it left in the Philippines after the Filipino-Spanish war. The film started started out by showing Andres Bonifacio’s wife dead and a brief introduction of his past. Afterwards, a small action happened while he was helping some of his fellowmen travel into the city since their house burnt down but they were harassed and attacked by the Spanish military for not bringing their cedulas. Just by seeing this, the film wants to show us how oppressive the Spanish military were and even if their excuse for not bringing their cedulas were valid, they took advantage of them by trying to search their items even when they said that they will just go back which led to bloodshed. I think they just want to express their dominance over the Filipinos and show us that they can do whatever they want to us. To support this idea, there was also a part where they publicly killed a Filipino after judging him guilty for trying to kill a military official and said that may it be a warning to all who would think of going against the government.

Redefining Filipino Time Excelsis Angel Ilagan Filipino time refers to the practice of an individual arriving late in events. Not many are aware, for instance, that not everything in the Philippines runs on Filipino time. Nearly all the country’s professional theater companies start their shows on the dot, a practice now established enough in the local theater community as to have become unremarkable, even expected. Among the lot of performing artists, at least, it’s considered a high mark of unprofessionalism and lack of commitment to arrive for rehearsals late, or defy one’s call time, or be tangled up in traffic and other sundry hurdles even as the lights are dimming and the curtain gets ready to rise. Jose Rizal also mentioned in his novels titled Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo how Spanish people gave importance in their position by arriving late in any occassion. One good example is the Gobernador heneral who always arrives late in any event. However, De Viana said that the negative connotation of Filipino Time has never been a part of the nation’s culture. She said that this concept started during the Spanish colonization in the Philippines wherein they often have their banquet and Spanish people always arrive late in the reception. Because of this, filipinos always believed that the one who arrives late, is the one who’s worth the wait. During the American colonial period, they noticed that Filipinos always arrive late and that’s when they started calling it ‘Filipino time...

...Upside Down In this movie, it explains that people from “Down-Under” cannot go to the world that’s above their own world. Adam, from the lower world, fell in love to Eden, from the upper world. Adam met Eden when he was nears the clouds, just mere meters from the upper world. Eden, being faithful to Adam, meets up with him several times. Adam tried to bring Eden “up” to his own world. He threw a rope to bring it “down to Eden. There came a time when they were chased down by policemen because their relationship was illegal. When Eden was escaping “Down-Under”, Adam was shot and had let go of the rope. Losing control with gravity, Eden fell “up” from the lower world. She landed hard back on the upper world that had caused a concussion and partial amnesia. Many years had passed and Adam had a chance to meet Eden. He applied to Eden’s office and was accepted because of his revolutionary age-defying cream. Then, he seized his opportunity and met Eden again, who had forgotten all their memories. Long story short, they lived a “happily ever after” kind of life. There’s this one substance that defies the law of gravity of the two worlds. The pink bee’s powder. I don’t know how or why, but when it’s on the lower world, it stays on the lower world. But when you bring it up to the upper world, it stays on the upper world. It is not pulled back “up” to the down world. There is only one thing that I would like to say and that is, “LOVE IS ACTUALLY NOT STRONGER THAN GRAVITY.” The mere...

Filipino Arch

...The houses vary in the same style depending on their location and social status and taste of the family. Houses of the Filipinos are usually made of wood and nipa. Later galvanized iron replaced nipa for roofing. In some towns, barrios, and cities, houses made of nipa and bamboo are still to be found. Some have sawali walls and cogon roofings. Most of the houses especially the older ones are situated high above the ground for better ventilation and reduced humidity. In the past, building a houses was fast and inexpensive. Houses were built then through the help of friends and neighbors. Today there are only few bamboo houses. Most houses are already built of strong materials like hollow blocks, wood, galvanized iron and glass windows. Modernity has not entirely changed the architecture of the Filipino houses. The batalan is stall a part of the houses in Luzon and is used as an open bathroom, a place for water jars or tapayan and a place for washing. The modern batalan is made of concrete and is still adjacent to the kitchen. The banguerahan, a storage shelf and drainer before the dish rack was introduced, is still a part of a few modern houses. The modern banguerahan is no longer enclosed with bamboo spikes but is screened. The old house of before were not painted. The present ones are painted in varied colors and built styles. The old houses were built high on the ground and the space below calle4d silong was fenced with bamboo to keep pigs, dogs, and...

I Am a Filipino

...I AM A FILIPINO Carlos P. Romulo I am a Filipino, I am a Filipino - inheritor of a glorious past, hostage to the uncertain future. As such I must prove equal to a two-fold task- the task of meeting my responsibility to the past, and the task of performing my obligation to the future. I sprung from a hardy race - child of many generations removed of ancient Malayan pioneers. Across the centuries, the memory comes rushing back to me: of brown-skinned men putting out to sea in ships that were as frail as their hearts were stout. Over the sea I see them come, borne upon the billowing wave and the whistling wind, carried upon the mighty swell of hope- hope in the free abundance of new land that was to be their home and their children's forever. This is the land they sought and found. Every inch of shore that their eyes first set upon, every hill and mountain that beckoned to them with a green and purple invitation, every mile of rolling plain that their view encompassed, every river and lake that promise a plentiful living and the fruitfulness of commerce, is a hollowed spot to me. By the strength of their hearts and hands, by every right of law, human and divine, this land and all the appurtenances thereof - the black and fertile soil, the seas and lakes and rivers teeming with fish, the forests with their inexhaustible wealth in wild life and timber, the mountains with their bowels swollen with minerals - the whole of this rich and happy land has been, for centuries...

Filipino Street Food

...FILIPINO FOOD STREET October 25, 2011 // By Caryl Estrosas Posted in: Asia // Food / Drinks // Philippines When in Rome, do as the Romans do—an advice fitting for any travelers visiting a foreign land. So, when you are in the Philippines, testing your palate with the Filipino street foods, while not necessary, is commendable. Not only would it be fun to try the unique local dishes, but it is a great way to immerse and understand the Filipino culture. It is easy to spot street food vendors; where there are churches, schools, recreational parks, or jeepney terminals, you will also see kiosks, makeshift stalls, or food carts. In suburbs, you will see vendors or hawkers with their bicycles or push carts almost everywhere. Street food is a way of life for many people in this part of the globe. It is a source of income for many Filipino families—some vendors testified that their street food businesses enable them to send their children to school. For students and working adults looking for inexpensive meal, street food satisfy them for just half-the price of a meal in any popular fast-food restaurant. Instead of dining in a restaurant for an authentic Filipino dish, why not go out in the street and have a quick bite. There is nothing more authentic than those food in the streets—untouched with the modern culinary flair. You will not only get to enjoy the food, but you get to join the locals who are eating with much gusto. Let you save couple...

Filipino Values(Aldub)

... FILIPINO VALUES (REACTION PAPER) Submitted by: Paula Nicole M. Escandor Submitted to: Prof. Lilibeth Cortez We Filipinos, almost all of us know about the hit noontime TV show Eat bulaga’s Kalyeserye, Especially the new love team, “AlDub” they’re known not just for their undeniably strong chemistry and the sweetness overload, but also because of the good values that their showing, the Filipino values we used to have, that’s actually fading slowly from now. The reality is, most of us nowadays forgot the traditional values, the proper ways. One of those is the way of courtship. Man courting a girl usually nowadays they don’t take it seriously, some just for fun, most doesn’t even know what courtship is and how it’s being done, when is the right time and age, for someone to know about this. But no, nowadays even kids who’s just an elementary students are hurrying their way to this stage, courting a girl from his age when he doesn’t even have any idea what’s really the meaning behind courtship. Some, just want to get a girlfriend, waiting is not on their list. Girls, gets easily fooled by a guy’s sweet words eventhough there’s really no meaning behind it. They easily get attached, not minding what the guy could do for them or if the guy is capable of protecting us. Girls nowadays aren’t conservative at all. In the Kalyeserye, they just don’t show us those love thingy, but the respect is there. We Filipinos are also known for being respectful, especially on someone older...

Management by Kayod (Realistic) Managers that are rational thinkers. They solve problems right away or they would at least cut down the problem into a manageable size if the problem cannot be solved right away. When it comes to decision making, they wouldn’t wait for the information to come in, they decide based on experiences, common sense, and instinct. These managers also know very well on how to make use of the resources that they have to reach the goal set by the employer. Management by Libro (Idealistic) Managers in this area are very planning and process oriented. They solve problems by reflecting on them first before taking any action, then brings in the analysis of the problem that they believe in fact. Since they are process-oriented and want to make sure that everything in their plan would work smoothly. In most cases, they have a system of their own, believes in the rules they set and won’t change them easily. Management by Lusot (Opportunist) Managers who are opportunists have no principles, or they change their principles according to the situation. They have strong faith in money and power but not in people, and they lack the sense of loyalty. Once their padrino is no longer in power, they would terminate the relationship with him and look for another one. When it comes to decision making, they...
