I wonder if any of you guys still practice the old traditions in your country or just say in your community.

To tell the truth, I still practice those but only few. Like the speaking of "po" and "opo". The Filipinos always say this to the older ones and personally I don't practice this anymore but sometimes I am required to do so.

But I still help others but only if I can.

You guys?

The only thing I do from the Old Country is cooking my (spaghetti) sauce from scratch for about 8 hours. Ragu=teh suck. I have to have homemade sauce or I can't eat pasta. It's just.. Uck.

hmmmm...i don't think i still follow any old korean traditions cuz most of my family and i are pretty much americanized. unless eating korean food counts as still following our old tradition.

Yeah, I still practice "po" and "opo," but I only say these when talking to older people who are not close to me, or are strangers. For my parents and grandparents and some other close relatives, I don't. :) I think I still follow traditions if I don't think they're stupid. I especially like eating "tikoy" everytime we celebrate the Chinese New year! :D

Bugok ka krieg! For me Akaiken, during New Year's Day, my family still practicing those old traditions like making a cotton balls. Cotton balls and rounded things represents money and wealth. Some Filipinos still believe in this tradition.

Hoy kenneth... baka gusto mong pumunta rito.... pumanaw na ang Lola ng Subahismo....

Even though I'm Filipino, I only practice old Chinese traditions that my mom and my grandpa "Chi-Nigga" taught me...

Pop and Opo sucks... spitting out "Tang ina mo" and "Gago" is my thang....

Yeah, I still practice the old Filipino traditions. One of these is saying "po" and "opo" to the elders or to the ones I hardly know. I still say "po" and "opo" to my family and to my relatives. I guess its one way of showing respect. :)

po and opo is a sign of respect. so older people deserve it truly =p especially grannies. besides you'll sound like a lame kano if you disregard that tradition.

otherwise, it depends what kind of tradition it really is. i don't celebrate halloween. =p
