You Might Be Filipino If…

Continuing the campaign break for just a bit longer. Stay tuned!

…you don’t think a party’s complete if there’s no pig on the table (speaking of baboy, would ya join the P.I.G. Club for me?).
…you know that when something starts at 5:00 pm, it actually starts at 6:30 pm.
…you point with your lips.
…you think every other filipino you meet is somehow related to you.
…your accent brings embarrassment when you try to say the word “part”.
…you think sucking on a fish’s head is normal.
…you’re offended by dog-eating jokes, but you still think sucking on a fish’s head is normal.
…you have an auntie named “baby”.
…you have an uncle named “boy”.
…you think anyone over 5’7″ is tall.
…you know there’s no chocolate in “chocolate meat”.
…you look at any big cardboard box as a possible balikbayan box.
…you’re still getting used to actually driving within the lanes.
…you call toothpaste “Colgate”, even if it’s “Crest”.
…you like your spaghetti really sweet and with chopped hot dogs in it.
…you think meatloaf should have hard-boiled eggs in it.
…you’re related to at least half a dozen nurses.
…you would never admit it, but you still think a tabo is so much better than toilet paper.

Talk about a “Random Rambling”, but I’m trying to get my homeland into the top 10 of my feeder nations (check out the “ClustrMaps” widget over there to the right). I’m honored that so many Pakistanis and Indians are BarBeQuethMinistry! followers, but the Philippines has got to do better than #14!
