Famous Filipino Pamahiin

by Filipino Parent
Filipinos are known to have a lot of superstitious beliefs or old wives’ tales. In Tagalog, these are called “pamahiin”. These pamahiin may be traced back to as early as pre-colonialism period, but as the Philippines has since become a melting pot of different cultures brought about by migrant Chinese, Bombay, and Americans, different beliefs from different cultures have also been adapted by the locals.
