Tampo – What is It and How Can I Fix It?

This video about tampo interviews two ladies in the Philippines.  This infamous mood or sulking called “Tampo“. 

The display of this Filipino “tampo” comes from the girlfriend or wife being offended by something said or done by the man.  It stems from the non-confrontational nature of Asian people.  They believe in the belief of “saving face”, without loud arguments. 

Western people typically want to have the issue all out on the table and discussed.  However, Filipinos would rather do it quietly through “tampo” – as a sort of silent withdrawal.
