2. Or worse, you can't even understand Tagalog or your family's dialect. / Via

9. You rooted for Floyd Mayweather, not Manny Pacquiao, during the "Fight of the Century."

Rooting for Mayweather in a Filipino household is like playing with a land mine


12. You can't sing or dance.

I just realized that I can't dance or sing so am I really Filipino!?


13. You dare to eat meals without rice.

A meal isn't a meal without any rice involved. What can I say? I'm Filipino hahaha

And yes, breakfast definitely counts.

14. You don't know how to sing the Philippine national anthem. / Via

15. Or worse, you think our national anthem's name is "Bayang Magiliw." / Via

WRONG. It's "Lupang Hinirang."

I made the mistake of showing up to a #Filipino party on time. I'm totally 2 hours early. #filipinotime
