Funny Little Vendor

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.

Sa Mindanao naman, it’s shouted sa Balut Pinoy. LOL. It’s funny how kids try to imitate the adults. But it’s even funnier how Filipinos call the same thing differently; thanks to the difference in language/dialect spoken! 😀

Visiting late for GT with A WORD THAT TRIZ FINDS TO BE REALLY WEIRD. Can you guess what that word is? Come and visit my post then! 😉 Thanks!

haha! funny talaga! i remember my niece nung pumunta kami sa bohol. she kept on telling us that she likes “barkeyu” (barbeque). ang sabi ng driver namin na taga bohol, “samin po ang tawag barbecue”. the driver thought “barkeyu” ang tawag sa tagalog ng barbecue. Acheche!
