It is very common for Filipinos to walk right up to someone's window and look in.

Which is how westerners get caught unexpectingly by intruders or robbers. Complacency to the common environment is number one way to become a victim.

My wife is still laughing at the statment Filipinos don't let anyone in their home. Maybe in quezon city.... but outside of Cebu and Manila I've seen a the opposite is true. They are naively welcoming.
Family might not have counted in that original statement....
