    First item is the car which was called Tsikot from the word Kotse which is the Tagalog for car. But in the 1980s it was overtaken by the slang Wheels. Now it is changing again to Oto which is the slang of Auto. Some others are using Ride like Pare do you have a Ride? These slang words clearly show the inventiveness of the Pinoys.

    I remember in the olden days when my brothers would be speaking in slang. Kay-oks means okay, log-tu means tulog or sleep, engka is kain to mean eat and some other words that they reverse the syllables. Stariray means someone who is playing cute, mamam is beer or alcoholic drinks.
