A FAST DISAPPEARING TRADITION

How many Philippine weddings have you attended where they still do this? A time-honored tradition of our brothers from Southern Tagalog and Central Visayas, we are glad to see it still being practiced in Manila - where most good traditions die anyway.

You might be surprised to learn that the same happened during my wedding. I had to perform a traditional dance in a little barrio in Bicol while people where pinning money on my clothes. I didn't collected many P 500 bills ;-)
It was 14 years ago but I know they still have this tradition there.

They won't be giving you large bills because you are a foreigner, Sidney, he he! Wow, it must be so much fun for you to have experienced a local wedding - your own!- first hand.

In my Nanay's province, I used to witness these traditional weddings where the Ninongs and Ninangs were obliged to put bills on the clothes of the groom and bride. Lately though, they have taken a modern approach to weddings, and I do agree with you, it is a fast disappearing tradition!
