Oh, it’s the birthday of your Cebuano friend? You MUST read this and understand that some of what you will witness in your friend’s party is all part of the ‘tradition’.
It’s something like what we do on Ash Wednesday. But instead of using ash, the elders use the blood of a newly butchered Bisayang manok.
You must not forget to thank the Almighty for blessing you with another year.
… and make a wish!
Rice and the ‘pancit-for-long-life’ will always be in the table in every birthday celebration.
Hey, this is fun! You can also add some flour if you like. Love the cracking sound when the egg strikes your head.
Well, not all the time. Sometimes, yeah!
Oh come on, admit it! You still do this during your birthday, don’t you?
You’ve done this, right?
You love this more than they sing ‘Happy birthday to you”.
