by Lin Bautista @ Travel Chronicles of a Filipina Caregiver

Japan’s elderly population keeps increasing, but the country suffers from shortage of “caregiver” manpower.

The TATEMAE Culture of Japan

by Lin Bautista @ Travel Chronicles of a Filipina Caregiver

I don’t know what period in the history of Japan it began. I even started to think if this sort of thing is being taught in schools. Japanese are best known for their deference. They usually pay attention to what other people feel, thus, whatever they do comes with respect and politeness. Due to this […]

Cynical Truth About Getting Absent in a Japanese Company

by Lin Bautista @ Travel Chronicles of a Filipina Caregiver

Not knowing how to apologize properly can bring you trouble when working with the Japanese. “Gomen nasai”, “Sumimasen deshita”…you often hear these words in the company. Apologizing when you committed mistakes would boost your relationship with your Japanese workmates. But what happens when you did it the wrong way? In my company, an 18-year old […]

Politeness in Japan Has Become a Hyperbole

by Lin Bautista @ Travel Chronicles of a Filipina Caregiver

From the view of foreigners like me, exaggerating simple things is really infuriating.  Of all the countries that I’ve visited, Japan perhaps is the only country where people train their own selves to do something in a controlled and habitual way. In short, they are “disciplined” in many aspects. But having this code of behavior […]

The License of a Caregiver

by Lin Bautista @ Travel Chronicles of a Filipina Caregiver

(with Nihongo translation) I made probably the best decision in my life when I quit teaching and turned into a caregiver.
