“Top Five Ways You Know You’re at a Filipino Wedding” (by Annabelle Malibago Kline of Woodbridge, CT 06/26/01)

5. The highlight of the evening is watching 3 year old Titoy sing karaoke of “Dancing Queen”.

4. You are greeted at the reception by a life-sized statue of Santo Nino.

3. Someone yells “Auntie!” and all the women turn around.

2. Everyone is line-dancing, no matter what song is playing.

1. Your Lola is wrapping leftover food and putting it in her purse.

    Yung line dancing, eerie, its so accurate nakakatakot.
    Pati na rin yung pabaon. Thats to be expected.
    Meron pa yung teenager na magaling kumanta because his/her voice is so angelic, after singing is always followed by a drunken uncle or auntie who can’t carry a tone.

    1. laging may candle, veil, chord sa wedding ceremony. di pwedeng mawala ang ringbearer at flowergirl na pamangkin ng mga ikakasal
    2. pakialamero ang mga magulang ng bride and groom kahit tapos na kasal
    3. masama loob ng mga kamag-anakan at kaibigan na hindi imbitado!

    I got one! The wedding cake is an outlandish display on its own! It’s got at least 5 tiers connected with some cake accessory with at least 20 figurines on it. It’s so huge that it needs its own table to be displayed.
