Cultural Insight
John: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Camille: In the Philippines, it's totally fine to prod the other person for details. How long will they be gone? Who are they going with? Why are they going there? If you are the one being asked, and you don't want to reply, just smile and say sikreto! which means "secret!"
