The Waray-Waray are an ethnoliguistic group located in Samar and Leyte. Geographically, they are located in the Visayas.
Waray-Waray sometimes shortened to Waray, is the term used to refer to the people who inhabit the islands of Samar and Biliran and the eastern section of Leyte. Those who come from Samar are called Samareños, while those from Leyte are Leyteños. They speak the language called Waray.
ReligionThe Waray-Waray people are one of the most religious people in the Philippines. Almost all of them belong to Roman Catholicism, the world's largest Christian denomination. Their religious devotion is very evident in their celebrations like feasts honoring their patron saints, Santacruzans and many more.
LanguageThe Waray-Waray people speak the Waray-Waray language, a major Visayan language. Some people who are of Waray descent also speak Waray-Waray as their second or third language, especially among emigrants to Manila other parts of the Philippines and in other parts of the world.
TraditionsMany Waray-Waray traditions can be traced to pre-colonial times. For example, the Kuratsa dance is a very popular traditional dance of the Waray-Waray at many social gatherings, especially weddings. It is very common throughout Samar. The couple who dances the Kuratsa are showered with money by the people around them. The belief is that the more money showered upon them, the more blessings will come their way.

While it is true that Filipinos are easily satisfied, this trait does not mean they are lazy. It simply means that their priorities are centered on family and relationships, rather than mere material things.
It is also not true that physical and mental activities are avoided by Filipinos, as most of them are hardworking laborers and would accept any job, so long as it would provide for their families (even going abroad).

Because they were (and still are). Asia's annual rate of GDP grows, The Philippines' shrinks.

Milkfish [Chanos chanos], or bangus as it is locally called here in the Philippines is our national fish. Bangus is one of the many staple fish diets by Filipinos although milkfish is widespread in Southeast Asia. Countries like Indonesia and Taiwan have milkfish also in their diet. To describe this fish, the scales are bright silver and a slender body. The bangus thrive either in fresh water lakes, brackish water, mangrove swamps, estuaries and salt water. When cooked, the flesh is white as milk - that is why it is called milkfish. Because milkfish is notorious for being much more bony compared to other food fish in the country, deboned milkfish or "boneless bangus" has become popular and common in stores and markets. Widespread throughout the islands but the more tasty ones comes from Dagupan, in the northern part of Luzon, Philippines. There are many milkfish recipes available and stuffed milkfish or rellenong bangus is one of the best.
