    In a drinking session, Tagay means your turn to drink. It is usually the case when the guys are having hard drinks and they use just 1 glass. Isn’t that a nice way of bonding? Beer is called er-bee and gin is Gin-bulag to mean a strong drink. Pulutan is what I like, it is the finger food that goes with the drink and the best are barbecued meat and broiled fish with chili sauce.

    Some of the native drinks we have are gulaman and sago which is gelatin with the jelly pearl, tuba which is coconut wine and lambanog which is a stronger version of tuba. Buko juice is the water of young coconut which is sold by street vendors together with the gulaman and sago. Tea is called tsaa.
