When RJ was still a baby, we didn’t use non-standard speech or baby talk to her because we didn’t want her to grow up with defective speech. We were glad that she can talk straight at the age of two which is very unusual to babies. But still she uttered funny words that make us laugh. These are words she pronounced based on how she heard them and one of these words is “enibalot”. This is how she heard the shout “penoy-balut” of the roaming nighttime street vendor. RJ will put something on top of her head imitating the vendor then will shout “enibalot”!!! Funny little vendor!
By the way, for those who don’t know what penoy and balut are, these are incubated duck eggs and two of the Philippines native delicacies.
