I just love the Spanish language... so funky and festive... I mean they call what we call "butter" "mantequilla". I mean, that is ten times more fun than butter!  Cheesy

Really? I always thought the Philippines were more Asian-influenced, being so close to that region, and the people look much more Asian that Hispanic... hey, this just occurred to me: I'm guessing you don't speak English in your daily life, and yet, you type it so perfectly here, just like a native speaker! What language do you actually speak? And, just to keep this on-topic, what exotic foods do you eat there?  Grin

Well, we ARE Asian.. But wait, here's a little history..
Spain colonized our country from around the 1600's to almost the 1900's. Tongue That added a LOT of Spanish influence. We were also under the American government for a few decades (I think up until past WWII, I forget Tongue ) after the Spanish colonization, I believe, which is where we got the American influence. XD I'm actually bilingual, as I speak both Filipino and English. That's pretty common here because of said more recent American influence. Wink

As for food, there are a quite few exotic ones, but I live in the city so the only one I ever get to try is Balut. Look it up in Wikipedia. Wink It actually tastes quite good, despite looking horrible.

I don't like coffee. It tastes too bitter. And apparently the thing does wonders in terms of inflicting damage to your nerve system.

I like tea, though. It's not a very tasty drink, but it's very nice and soothing. Really, drinking tea is one of the most relaxing activities out there. I like black tea the most, btw. English breakfast ftw.

Doesn't a cup of black tea have a greater amount of caffeine than a cup of coffee ?

Oh, I see, that makes sense... lord knows how or why the Spanish discovered such a remote archipelago from their primary area of colonization, but that's a different story.  Wink

So, did you learn both languages from a very young age?

Mercurius... NO!!! *calls on a squad of search-and-rescue special ops and recruits the Swiss navy (even though they're both landlocked and neutral  Tongue) to find him*

Uhhh...no it doesn't...Tea has a bit of caffeine, but not nearly as much as just about any type of coffee out there.

Actually, according the the history books, they were looking for Indonesia/"Spice Island" around the year 15something and found our country by mistake instead. Tongue They had "God, Gold, Glory" as their goals supposedly. LOL. I still remember gradeschool history yayz.

The first language I learned was Filipino, but I learned English from all the way back in preschool, and I'm still required to study the finer points now. ..I forgot to mention English is mandatory in all schools, and almost all elementary subjects except Filipino(duh) and History are generally taught in English, or a mixture of English and Filipino. >_> (I know Nightwing from the Not-church is Filipino too, and as you can see he's very fluent as well. 8D )

MERCURIUS AAAGGHHH!!! .. o_O Grin


Also, according to this:

According to the site's caffeine index, coffee has the most caffeine with 47-164 milligrams per 5 ounce serving. The caffeine content depends on how the coffee is brewed -- fresh drip has the highest level, instant has the lowest. Second place is a little more difficult to determine. A single serving of black tea (5 oz.) can have anywhere from 25 to 110 milligrams of caffeine, while a single serving of Coca-Cola (12 oz.) measures in with 46 milligrams. However, when you break it down to caffeine per ounce, tea handily beats Coke.
So I guess it's possible for Black tea to have more caffeine than say, a cup of instant coffee.

Damnit! Foiled again...But still, it's nowhere NEAR as unhealthy as coffee. Hell, scientists even claim coffee would be banned if it were invented today! Compare that to the fact that tea's actually said to be good for your health, helps avoid heart cancer or something.

Hah! I win!

You are a winner, sir.

LOL! Swiss navy. Grin

I'm stating my correction of "reminded"

QUESO!

I like "nutella" (TM), very much!

I like green and black tea. I don't like cinnamon tea too much. Vanilla tea is nice, one of my favorites. Mint tea is great, but I think I like green tea a lot better.

Hmm. Here again is my question. Western tea or Eastern (Asian) tea? Tongue
