Filipino Family Party Things's Profile

God, I miss my family’s lumpia.


First off, you have a million titos and titas and can hardly keep track of all of their names.


There’s so many, you’re actually convinced a couple of them aren’t even related to you and just showed up for the food.


Likewise, you also have a million cousins. In fact, you keep meeting new ones.

Everyone always shows up two hours late.


Filipino time is a real thing, trust me.


Shoes are left at the door! Don’t even think about it!


A meal is never served without rice, no matter what the main course is.


One word: LUMPIA.

You and your cousins used to have contests over who could eat the most.


Your family looks for pretty much any excuse to all get together, whether it’s a birthday or Groundhog Day.

“Oh, it’s Abraham Lincoln’s birthday? We should get together!”


In fact, if you have a family party on the calendar, you have to tell your friends you can’t hang out that entire day — because they literally last forever.


Everyone has a nickname. In fact, you don’t even know some of your relatives’ real names.


“This is Tita Baby, that’s Tito Bubba, and that’s…”


You have to give your new significant other a brief overview of your entire family and prep them before you bring them to any gatherings.

Sorry, you WILL be interrogated by all of our titas and you’re going to have to deal with that.


Everyone says grace ridiculously fast so they can start eating ASAP.

I want adobo, pancit, and sinigang, and I want it NOW!


The kitchen is always where all of the gossip is.


There’s always a sports game, a fighting match, or some old movie playing on the TV.

Either that, or someone is randomly doing karaoke in the living room.


It takes forever to say goodbye to everyone because there are so many relatives.


Your parents would always give you a heads-up that it’s time to leave, like, 20 minutes in advance.


And finally, everyone is already planning the next family party before you’re even out of the driveway yet.
