Filipinos have distinct personalities and this reflects in their home. There are things in a Pinoy home that we would not find anywhere else

1. An ice cream tub in the freezer with fish inside

Picture this: it’s a hot day and you’re in the mood for some ice cream. You go to the kitchen, open the freezer, and see a tub. A non-Filipino will automatically take it out and prepare a bowl and a spoon. If you’re in a Filipino home, you’re going to open it first before getting your hopes up. Chances are, it’s not Double Dutch ice cream inside but fish.

2.That calendar
You know which calendar we’re talking about. The big white one with the blue and red font that’s given away by businesses and offices.

3.Plates with flowers or fruits
Lots of Filipino homes have those plates with fruits and flowers printed in the middle. Top that with steaming white rice, liempo, and munggo, and you’ve got yourself a delicious meal.

Let’s face it, Filipinos love to eat so a Pinoy home wouldn’t be complete without snacks. We love Super Crunch, a local brand of chips with so many variants available. Its corn chips come in Cheesiest, Tasty Sweet Corn, Cheddar Cheese, and Barbecue, and the nachos are available in Cheese and Barbecue. The corn chips have a flavorful and sweet taste to them, while the nachos have a smokier taste that we love.
A Filipino home has Pinoy snacks, and Super Crunch also has local flavors in Chipcharon, its line of crãcklïngs made of green peas. It has the familiar taste of chicharon without the guilt. You won’t believe it’s not pork! There’s Lechon Kawali, which will remind you of the famous dish with a hint of vinegar; Pinoy Bawang and its garlicky taste; and Suka’t Sili for that bold and spicy flavor.

5.A collection of plastic bags and containers
Filipino families have been eco-friendly even before the world did and it was an Inception situation: plastic bags inside plastic bags inside plastic bags. The same can be said for plastic containers, which were collected from takeouts and deliveries. Plus points if family members can tell which cover goes with which container.

A Filipino home won’t be complete without a tabo. The Filipino’s obsession with the tabo dates back to the pre-colonial period when they placed it at the entrance to the home next to a terracotta jar. Guests are expected to wash their hands and feet before entering the home. It was also used in the kitchen as a water pitcher or for cleaning. Today, it’s found in the bathroom. Some families even have a tabo and a pail even if there’s a shõwër .

7.Large wooden utensils on the wall
Filipino families need two kinds of utensils: the ones to eat with and giant wooden versions that you hang on the wall. We’re not sure about its history but we admit it looks cool.

8.An altar with Sto Niño
The Philippines is a predominantly Catholic country so you can expect Filipino homes to reflect that. We’re sure you have, or you’ve visited homes with, an altar of the Sto. Niño and other religious artifacts.

9.The Last Supper in the dining room
An extension of the altar is a portrait of the Last Supper hanging in the dining room. Ours was a cross-stitched version.

10.Diplomas and graduation pictures on the wall
Enter a Filipino home and chances are, you’ll see a wall filled with diplomas, graduation photos, and medals. And you know what? We get it. It’s a sign of pride for the parents. Photos that aren’t on the wall are bound to be in a photo album stored somewhere in the sala, ready to be shown to guests.

Never know about #7 never seen it in my lifetime 😂
dami dito sa province 😄

eto yung naabutan ko na mga nakalagay sa bahay nang lolo at lola ko dati, naka frame sya. my mga hebrew at latin, di ko gets mapa hanggang ngayun kung ano yan. siguro my lahing judeo sila.

According sa isang aklat about alchemy,
Azoth tawag nyang isa ,classical elements yan:earth, air, water and fire,dati pinaniniwalaan kasi nila yan na it embody all medicines and animating energy.Related sa Alchemy.Mahabang explanation yunh nakapaloob sa bawat larawan o drawing/symbolo na nakalagay dyan.Yung mga letrang nakasulat :Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem. This condensation of the operations means “Visit the innermost parts of the earth; and by setting things right (“rectifying”), you will find the hidden Stone.”

yan namang isa is Solomon triangle yan,(star of david)sacred geometry.Mayron daw yang protective power na pinaniniwalaan,like amulets.So overall it became a powerful tool of protection.Yung dalawamg opposite na triangle ,one pointing downwads ,the other pointing upwards,tswag dyan "double polarity.Its like fire rising and wateer falling.or the force from above(cosmic)amd forces below(telluric).Inihahalintulad ito sa yin & yang symbol.
Quod superius sicut quod inferius [words from the Emerald Table of the Hermetists: what is above is like what is below.
Thus wearing a hexagram will protect all the better if you have established a psychic connection with that symbol. It is the interaction you create with it that becomes a valuable aid, not the other way around.
Pwedi mo din ito isabit sa front door to protect home from evil.
