A Typical Igorot Lady (A reader’s response to our publised article about a typical Igorot guy)

In response to 5 fun-facts before dating a typical Igorot guy, here is 8 FUN FACTS ABOUT A TYPICAL IGOROT LADY.

1. A TYPICAL IGOROTA EXPECTS YOU TO TAKE HER OUT ON A DATE.
A boat ride at Burnham park, movie at centermall–sm?. A walk up and down session road. Hold her hand once in a while, it does not have to be grand, she just wants to be with you.

2. SHE IS COMFORTABLE WTH JUST LOTION ON.
Do not expect her to wear make up and fake eyelashes (unless it’s a graduation pictorial, an entourage for a wedding or some more special occasions). Some even have allergies to these products.

3. NO, SHE DOES NOT POP GLUTA PILLS.
Most Igorot ladies have fair to white skin contrary to the belief of some people that Igorots are dark skinned people. Ibalois especially have this natural glowy white skin.

4. YES, SHE DRESSES DIFFERENTLY.
Do not expect her to go out wearing short-shorts, tank tops and high heeled 8 inches shoes. SHE WON’T. She is comfortable in her lee jeans, t shirt, jacket and if youre lucky–hoodie, and boots/sneakers and if you’re extra extra lucky, it’s not a shoulder bag she carries–a backpack man, a backpack!

5. SHE IS PREPARED FOR EVERYTHING.
Do not ask her: “kaya mo?” (Can you?). Because absolutely she can and will. She might even do it better than you do. Never under estimate her ability to do things. Laking bundok yan (she grew up in the mountains).

6. FEED HER, FOR GOODNESS SAKE!
Don’t bring her to fancy expensive restaurants where the plate is so big and the food is just one spoonful. Bring her to eat-all-you-can buffets, good taste would be great! And let her eat.

7. SHE IS FIERCE.
Never insult her race if you would not want your nose to bleed from an English rant with accent. Never ever insult Igorots in front of her if you still want to see the sunrise.

8. And lastly, SHE’S GOT THOSE CALVES.
She is proud of her calves, and even if people laugh or notice them a lot. She would still be proud to flaunt it. It’s an Igorota’s asset and pride. Ask her about em’ and she will tell you a long record of walking.

  • Awesome!
    We’re like on the same level, as you’ll see on 5000 facts yada yada.
    I just read this post just now.

    All are true, except 2 for me. We use lip balm (moisturizer) and/or lipstick.

    My comment for number 1: We expect you to take us out for refreshments at burnham and try biking, skating together, …. Then we end the day eating at Good Taste.
    We/I don’t prefer to invite you when we go to malls for “(window) shopping” ‘coz you’re not enjoying it. When we ask you if the product we product is nice or -bagay- you just simply say ‘wen’

  • Yeah absolutely all are true!!!hahaha we are born to live simple,and yet we could also be extravagant if it’s needed…as a typical Igorot Lady she could also do what a man can do,it’s not the ego but we really can depends on the circumstances coz we were trained to be tough since childhoo.and am proud of being an Igorota.

  • Well…I think all true 🙂 what the heck…we are what we are and proud of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sounds true to me, all of it and i am very proud to be pure blooded igorot from mountain province. lip balm is a must.
