  1. Chelsea, English has a variety of words for “bato,” whereas in the Philippines we only have one word for it!

    Stone, Pebble, Rock, Boulder – Bato

    But we also have several word for Phallus, denoting size! (We’ll talk about it next time) Hahaha

  2. haha I just remembered Tipo. You know in Bicol we say Tipo/tipu for burnt rice and also for someone who has broken or missing tooth. 😋


  3. Also anyone older but near the same age range than us, we say Manoy or Manay. Tia or Tio for aunts and uncles and anyone older. Lolo or Lola for grandparents or old folks. Mamay or Papay or the May or Pay for our parents. 😅
