1. The tsinelas at all times
Tsinelas are traditional Filipino slippers, and must always be worn inside the house. If you go to another Filipino’s home, you’ll find various pairs already waiting for you at the entrance: flips flops, straw sandals, or slip-on house shoes. Now, wearing slippers isn’t really my thing. But as soon as I take off my shoes, I can see Grandma glaring at my awkward tsinelas-less feet as they walk away.
