I found this picture in my friend's blog and I would like to share this to you, my readers. He was on his way to Baguio and they passed by this place along the way. The town was called Barangay Cauringan.
I know my Pinoy readers are now laughing because in Manila, Cauringan is a street slang for "love making". He took this picture and said that he might consider retiring in this town. Hahaha!
This is one proof that there also exists sub-cultural differences specially when it comes to local dialects. In Barangay Cauringan, people already speak a different language (Kapampangan, I think) while in Manila, the country's capital, we mainly speak Tagalog (or Filipino).
I wonder what Tagalog words are funny to other people in the provinces specially in the Visaya and Mindanao region. If we, the Tagalog speaking Pinoys find funny words in other dialects. I'm sure they also have their favorite funny words from our dialect.
If you know one, please comment below and share it to me. Thanks!
