Admit it: we have a love-hate relationship with our titos and titas.
As much as we find them annoying at times, we can’t help but love our titos and titas. They are the parents we never had. They’re our companions in cracking jokes or drinking ice-cold Pale Pilsen or getting brunch at the most tita café in town. But once upon a time, they were just as young as we are now. And now, they’re taking social media by storm, thanks to social media pages like Titos of Manila and Classic Pare Titos and Titas of Manila.
If we want to understand them more, look no further then how they treat their money—both then and now. Whether you’ll hear them ramble about the prehistoric days or sagely give you advice about your love life or financial health, you can totally see these in your favorite tito and tita. Of course, everyone’s welcome, except for a certain “tito” who loves plagiarizing stuff.
1. You’ll often hear them start a rant with “noong panahon namin…” and it can go on for hours.
