Asking `Where are you going/coming from?`
Filipinos often greet each other with the questions “Where are you going?” or “Where have you been?” To many foreigners, this seems nosy. This is meant to be a polite, informal greeting. You do not have to indicate exactly where you are going or where you have been. A vague response is just fine.
