Tondo boy speaks: ‘Tambay’ culture a part of everyday life

Sharing is caring!

Former solicitor general Florin Hilbay is one proud boy from Tondo.

Growing up in his neighborhood with the classic “tambay” culture, he said that this culture has taught him a lot of things about life.

That’s why he finds it problematic that the government launched an anti-tambay campaign that resulted in massive arrests of the so-called vagrants in neighborhoods.

“Hulihin daw ang tambay? i spent the first 30 years of my life in tondo. pag labas ng bahay, tambay kasama kapitbahay—tsismis, kwentuhan sa basketball, may soft drinks na nasa plastic. Minsan t-shirt, minsan sando, laging naka-shorts. masaya, dami natutunan. Ngayon aarestuhin?” he said in a Twitter update.

Point taken!
