You might be a filipino if

2) Have a turbo cooker or george forman that stays out all the time.
3) pronounce your "F"s with "P"s Wee are cookeeng PEEESH (fish) tonight.
4) Say the word 'WHY' instead of the word 'WHAT'.
5) signify the word yes with the raising of eyebrows instead of shaking your head.
6) The way you signify come here with your hands to americans means go away and vice versa.

too true - heh, yeah those are usually really funny! i tend to get about a good half of them. which works since im half.

a few more more i really like are if:
you point with your lips
you say "shut the light" and "open the light"
you have a picture of the last supper on your wall
everyone in your family goes by nicknames, usually ones that are repetative. like john john.
and of course- your head snaps around instantly the moment you hear "psssst-"

hilarious! - I can't believe I found this website. I can totally relate to all these being mestiso and raised by my Mom. Let's not forget these:

when forgetting a word, you say, ng ano
the "p" and "f" switch - fried rice powder = pried rice fowder
most importantly, the terror of the sight of a flying wooden shoe!
