This is the practice of respect by asking for an elder's hand and touch one's forehead while bowing. One usually asks by saying "Mano po" (Literally, "your hands please"). In return, the elder blesses the person. The "elderly" refer to parents and grandparent or their contemporaries (cousins, friends and colleagues). It is usually done when one visits a family, meets these people outside of the homes or after a religious activity (service, Mass or prayers). It is also common to bring children to their godparents during Christmas time to pay respect with this custom. Children would not only receive their godparents' blessing but also their presents.
