For the week­end

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Live It Up - Ask a few Q's.

Be­fore ac­cept­ing an in­vite to a friend’s fam­ily house, ask who’s cov­er­ing what, says lizzie Post of the emily Post In­sti­tute, so you know what you’ll be pay­ing for, and it gives them a chance to say, “no, you’re our guest!” ar­rive with a gift in hand . or of­fer to cook a sim­ple break­fast or buy gro­ceries. leave your sexy suit at home. If it’s a girls’ trip, fine. But an itsy-bitsy bikini in front of your friend’s dad and brother? awk­ward. fol­low your hosts’ lead. sure, it’s va­cay, but don't just as­sume you can sleep un­til 2 p.m. ask be­fore bed, “What’s the sched­ule for to­mor­row?” send a thank-you note (obvi). hand­writ­ten cards feel more heart­felt than e-mail or a text mes­sage.
