Tabo or Dipper

Tabo or dipper in English is a very essential item you can find in a Filipino bathroom. We often use a dipper when taking a bath, because most average Filipinos do not have installed showers. A partner of this dipper is a pail, just in case, there’s a water shortage.

Actually, this is a thing for Asian households. We believe that the shoes you use outside are gross, and you should not enter the house wearing those.

A lot of food containers and dinnerware are hidden in a cupboard.

Filipino moms tend to save a lot of food containers which we often call “tupperwares” because of a popular brand. These are used every time there’s an occasion happening at home, and when you have family excursions. Meanwhile, the beautifully-made porcelain dinnerware is kept because it will only be used by visitors during special events.
