PINOYISMS: 10 Things Pinoys Do Inside the Mall

Because malling is more fun in the Philippines!

 

In a region as hot and congested as Metro Manila, no one can blame us Pinoys for going to the mall as much as we do. After all, it's a place where we can shop, dine, watch movies, and, in most cases, wait for the traffic to subside. It's practically a life-saver. What's not to love?

In fact, we love hanging out in malls so much that we've developed a bunch of habits that are exclusive only to Pinoys. Yeah, you know where this is going! Malling is way more fun in the Philippines, and it's all because of the following:



1. We always try on dozens of outfits, but only end up buying one or two.

2. When it’s fuming hot outside, you won’t find Pinoys anywhere else but inside the mall. This method also applies during thunderstorms, brownouts, and traffic.

3. Pinoys go to a coffee shop, order one drink, and use their Wi-Fi for the rest of the day.

4. Pinoys never miss mall shows, especially when they involve their favorite celebrities.

6. We can't get enough of those high school kids who take on Just Dance as if their lives depend on it.

7. Whenever we pass by an appliance center and a movie is playing in one of the flat screens, we can't help but stop and stare.

8. Pinoys primarily think of foodcourts as a meeting place, which is kind of ironic, since you won't find a more crowded place anywhere.

9. We make YouTube stars out of karaoke singers, waiters, and security guards.
