21 Things That Happen At Every Filipino Party
Here for the lechon, lumpia and lots of love. But especially lechon.
The tita who told you the party starts at four o'clock actually meant five o'clock.
Before anything, you better mano po your elders.
And leave your sapatos at the door!
Once you're in, everyone's like, "Halika, KAIN NA!"
No matter how many people are at the party, there'll always be enough food to feed the whole neighborhood.

Because, let's be real, who's going to finish that lechon in the middle of the table?
And of course, you're eating at the kids table, even if you're so "dalaga na."
And you'll leave victorious with leftovers for daaaaaaays.
