About

This is a random list of Filipino stuff that makes Filipinos proud, happy, nostalgic, elated, high, inspired, hungry, hopeful, confident, comforted, excited, intrigued, entertained, mystified, homesick–  you name it, all the feel  good experiences we ought to have. 

No historical personalities, celebrities or so-called heroes/heroines are listed as this is not a who’s who list, but more of a what-where-when….

As a countdown to the end of 2010, compiling this list can be a journey by itself or maybe a reminder that some of them may not last if not properly taken care of, supported or nurtured, used and promoted.

Being a random assortment, if we can list 365 of these Great Pinoy Stuff  (‘great’ here being subjective and arbitrary) that’s one year of being thankful for all those special moments evoke by these special Pinoy Stuff, and that can perhaps relieve us of the abysmal neglect from our government and appointed leaders.

So share your comments, suggest an item to add to this list or generate your own Gizmos, Gear , Grub, Garb, Going Places, Gadgets…. all your favorite Great Pinoy Stuff!

Mabuhay ang Pinoy!

    Really great idea and worthwhile passing to the younger generation so they could have knowledge of our own. Sabi nga ng “Banyuhay” – tayo’y mga Pinoy…..

    You might want to add something about the “Bakya” and the “leche flan”.

    • Thanks, Steve for the suggestion. Will add these items in future blogs…mabuhay!

        Leo, would you please consider this as a contribution to the countdown?!? I got it from the internet but unfortunately no pic to define it more. I have read all that is in the blog and enjoyed it so much that upon arriving here at the office in the early morning, it’s the first thing I open hoping there is/are new stuffs.
        Everything is making me homesick – the last time I was home was in 1996. I would appreciate it if you e-mail me separately: stephen_suratos@yahoo.com.

        Tumbang Preso (Pronounced as: tum-bahng preh-so) is a game that most Filipino kids play. It’s quite popular in the past when there were still no video games and when kids were relatively more active. But despite all the new technology and the increase of couch potatoes, the tumbang preso is still being played by the more active kids of today. Even adults sometimes play it too, bringing back memories of the past.

        Tumbang Preso is an easy game to play. You need to have at least 3 players for this game but of course, having more players playing would make the game more challenging and fun. There needs to be an “it” player or the defender of the can. Usually at the start of the game this is decided through games such as rock, paper and scissors. The “it” will then defend the can from other players to prevent them from knocking it down. When the “it” has tagged another player when the can hasn’t been knocked down, then that player will be the new “it”. The other players must try to knock down the can as much as possible so the “it” player would have to put the can back. Players usually use slippers when playing tumbang preso and they are usually allowed to have just 2 slippers as their weapons. When all the players have used up all their slippers without knocking down the can, the “it” player can then chase everyone and tag who he/she wishes to become the new “it” player. This is basically the process of the whole tumbang preso game. All players doesn’t wish to become the “it” because you’d end up returning the can over and over again until you get lucky and tag a new “it”.

        It’s a fairly simple game but it is very entertaining even to adults. It allows the kids to make friends with other kids and it keeps them fit and healthy too. Tumbang preso is a game that is distinctly Filipino.

      • Thanks Steve. Yes indeed tumbang preso! It’s in my list, too, but as you’ve said not easy to find a photo…But will definitely put it in as I played this wonderful game when I was a kid growing up in Pasay. We played tumbang preso right on the middle of the street. Will get back to you via your email. Thanks for following 365GPS. Readers like you make this blog worthwhile to write. Although I had to rack my brains up for things to include in the list, up to the end of this year. cheers leojagev

    Relax lang, kapatid, you can do it.
