the big comparisons of the filipino-style spaghetti to the italian-style spaghetti...
-it's sweeter compared to the sweet-sour italian-style one
-it has the distinct "ginisa" aroma, with all the garlic and the onions...
-hotdogs replace meatballs, and a lot of pinoys are experimenting what more can they mix with it.
-it's served on informal occasion (i.e. b-days)

iba talaga ang pinoy...
