Expat Guide: Filipino Time (February 15, 2016)

By Tin Valeriano

According to Tin Valeriano, Filipino Time define being minutes to hours late

compared to the exact time. Many factors are attributed to being late in the Philippines. The

number one perennial problem is traffic. In this lifetime, about thousands of people may have

reasoned out traffic as an excuse for being late as it has always been an everyday dilemma for

both commuters and car owners. However, it’s still not an acceptable reason because one can

always estimate the travel time and leave earlier than usual. But then again, there may still be

other factors to consider such as vehicular accidents or emergencies. Aside from being late

because of traffic, some people choose to be late. And that’s called “fashionably late.” It is not an

acceptable reason if it is for an appointment, but it’s somehow acceptable to events such as

parties. Being late is not a nice trait. And it’s even sadder that it’s being named ‘Filipino time’

even if people from other countries are late just like everybody else. But instead of conforming

to the ‘”Filipino Time,” why not change the system? Be there on time, and be strict when you set

a schedule. This way, you can help destroy the concept of lateness in the Philippines and be the

first one to exemplify punctuality in your office. Let everyone follow because now’s the right

time to be on time not after thirty minutes, and definitely not later than that.

meet ups, Filipinos tend to be late. This is how the word “late” was knitted with “Filipino Time”.
