what are your favorite things, lifestyle, aspects, etc. that are "indigenous" only in the Philippines. My personal favorites are: 1. Politicians/Goverment officials who advertise the "good work" they do in their respective offices. 2. the "tabo", "planggana" and "balde" in the shower. 3. the tiny, brown lizards on our walls and ceiling. haha!

Street fishballs, taho, tabo, our indoor broom (could not find the same kind in this country, it's really great on tiled/cemented floor), banana turon, 6 people riding on a single motorcycle (we call it "habal-habal" in our province), "taplod"-to ride on top of an already overloaded jeepney, neighboring sari-sari stores, and home-service manicure and pedicure for only $2. I just so love these things (oh, except for the "habal-habal" and the "taplod" though they are quite an amusement just like our "trapos"- traditional politicians.)
