10 Signs You’re A Tito Of Manila


The clock is ticking—embrace it



For a while now, the Titas of Manila have made themselves known all throughout the metro. But now it’s time to look at the other end of the spectrum and talk to some of our favorite guys. Because if there's a tita, naturally there's a tito.


Boys, here are the signs of being a tito.  


You know how and what to drink

Gone are the days when you used to drink to get drunk. Now you enjoy sipping your choice of alcohol, whether it be whiskey and scotch. It doesn’t hurt that you can afford it now, too.


Drinking at home > Going out

You prefer those chill nights in that turn into fun memories. Who needs the club when all you need are your friends anyway?



There will always be a special place in your heart for pop culture classics

Pokémon, Dragon Ball Z, Street Fighter, Ghost Fighter, Samurai X—all untouchable. You will defend these classics to the death and no new-generation revival is ever going to surpass them.


Tito jokes are your thing

Watch out, everyone. Here come the tito jokes.

Your car/computer/gaming console is your life

You spend a lot of time and money on making what you have better. If you’re into cars, you invest in your car. If you’re a gamer, you’ll spend hours in Gilmore searching for the right part. On the weekends, nothing else matters.


The hardware store is your favorite

You never used to understand why your dads and titos loved visiting Ace Hardware and True Value so much, but now you get it. You’ve become one of them and that doesn’t even bother you one bit.



You embrace your growing stomach

When you were younger, you had the energy and time to go to the gym and diet. And while you still (try) to watch what you eat, a tightening pair of pants is no longer your worst nightmare. Dad bods are in, aren’t they?


All your friends are getting married and having kids

You have become a literal tito. You attend baptisms and children’s birthday parties, and you buy gifts for all your pamangkins—especially when you’re ninong.



You love getting socks and underwear for Christmas

Sure, they used to be the most boring gifts to get, but you seriously enjoy getting socks and underwear now.


Two words: Tito wardrobe

Button-down polos, jeans or khaki shorts and a pair of sneakers or loafers. Seriously, when did you start collecting them?
