random PI thoughts.

1. filipinos love to text/sms. in fact it is the world's text capital

2. i get mistaken for korean or japanese, even by my own cousins. however the 'darker' i've become, the more and more i am seen as a 'local'.

3. filipinos love to eat pork, and lots of it. they also love to fry everything.

4. weird beauty products i've seen -- shampoo that makes your hair 'blacker', and soap that makes your skin 'whiter'.

5. when people say something that sounds like 'mom' they are actually saying 'maam', short for 'madamme'. i thought they were being rude by assuming my only slighter older female cousin was a mother.
