You know you are a true blue Ilonggo if....

Your one peso is pisos
Your bathroom has at least one lugod (or one for every family member)

Your nanay used to make you drink Mirinda or Royal Tru Orange when you have a fever, which is supposed to make you feel better.

Sinamak is a staple on your dining table (the best
Ilonggo invention if you ask me... it was even banned on airplanes long before 911)

Your toyo is patis and your patis is toyo

You use atsuete for your adobo and refer to pinaksiw as pinamalhan

Your daily meal will likely include laswa, kbl (kadyos, baboy, langka), ginat-an nga tambo with tugabang and okra, ginat-an nga munggo, Linutik, apan-apan, etc.

November 1 means eating ibus, suman, suman
kalamay-hati, bayi-bayi, valenciana or other native delicacies with glutinous rice and coconut milk.

You call those you love palangga, pangga, langga
or Ga.

You call your siblings or cousins inday, nonoy
or toto... the househelp may call you the same.

You call those who are older than you manang or manong.

You catch the attention of sales attendants by calling them "day"or "to"

Your childhood games include tumba patis, taksi', panagu-ay, balay-balay, ins, tin-tin baka, holanes,etc.

You used to be (or still are) scared to go out at night lest you meet the aswang, tik-tik , tayhu, kapre, kama-kama, morto, etc.

Your grandparents read Yuhum magazine

You call a person, thing, place and
event "kwan" when you forget it (si kwan, ang kwan,

You understand that "Particulars Keep Out" sign means outsiders keep out.

You use words such as "ahay" (expression of
pity, grief, empathy), "yuga" (expression of disbelief, surprise), "ambot ah" (to say you don't know,
expression of impatience).

You often start your sentence with "ti".

You say goodbye by saying "halong".

Your favorite cusswords are "linte" (if you're slightly pissed off), "lilinti-an" (if you’re now really pissed off) and finally "yodiputa" (if you're pissed off big time)

You are indeed a TRUE Ilonggo indeed!


Please pass to the other G.I.'s (genuine Ilonggo bala haw ah! lol!

Lol!!! Thats some funny shiz.

Just to add a few more. You know your Ilonggo when you:

Eat a vine called elogbate

Your favorite is depuga instead of deputa.

You start of every sentence with lower emphasis and end your sentences with higher emphasis. (just like singing)

Every sentence you use to answer a question ends with "ah".
