FROM THE HAPPY YIPEE YEHEE TV SHOW
TO THE FANCY CLUB REPUBLIC
By Matthieu the Assistant Director
The Philippines is a country that escapes its troubles by watching daytime media, which fantasizes about winning it big.
The Budget Backpackers attended a local TV show called Happy Yippee Yehey and what a scene they caused.
We showed the Filipinos how rowdy a bunch of American/Brits can get. Yelling at the top of our lungs, jumping until our legs gave out, and just being crazy we all made quite a spectacle.
Dom was even asked to come up on stage to be aired on live television.
Another passion amongst the Philippines is enjoying the nightlife and so the Backpackers cleaned the mud off their shoes, swapped tank tops for button downs, and scrounged up enough dough to get into one of the ritziest clubs in Manila. The Filipinos know how to get down, party, and have a good time. The Backpackers joined in fun, danced the entire night away, and felt that much closer to the foreign culture.
