Her impression of the aswang from Shake, Rattle, and Roll never failed to make me behave and sit frozen in terror in front of the antique statuettes on our altar. I grew up listening to stories about the mambabarang (black magic practitioner) and the shape-shifting creatures that skulk on the rooftop to feed on infants and the ailing.
