R.Hi, I'm Johnny.
Even since I came to Philippines, I have heard a lot this question from many people. "How did/do you find Philippines?" When I heard this question, I answered literally how I came to Philippines like the famous quote by Beetles which I found on the internet.
I knew the meaning of it and I knew how the verb find was used in this question. However, it just sounds a bit strange to me. I wonder if this expression is widely used by many native speakers.
The expression, "How do you find X?", is very common. It means "What do you think/feel about X so far?"
When I read many business e-mails written by Philippinos, I quite often come across the word 'kindly' and it's used like this, "Kindly do something."
Instead of 'please', they put 'kindly'. I also wonder many native speakers are using 'kindly' with imperative sentences
Yes, it's common. It means " Please be so kind as to do something."
