Leisure Recreation and the Arts

Men tend to have more leisure time than women, in part due to women's extensive responsibilities in both the home and work place outside the home. Leisure time is spent with one's barkada, family members, or friends of both sexes. Sex segregation during leisure time is voluntary. Men tend to spend more money than women on leisure activities, including drinking alcohol, buying alcoholic beverages for their friends, and gambling. Fewer women than men drink beer or gin and become drunk, though women do drink rice wine at rituals and secular feasts. People commonly meet friends of the same sex at a sari sari, or small store, to socialize, snack, and drink soft drinks, or beer for men. While males and females listen to music broadcast on radios, adolescent girls especially enjoy radio soap operas. Women occasionally cook special sweet treats during their leisure time that they share with other family and community members.
