Baler Words of the Week

Starting this week I will post two or three Baler words with their description. This is to promote the use of our “puntung Baler” and to prevent the dipuntu invasion happening in our dear old town. So this week’s Baler words are:

Balinuknuk – stiff neck. Ex: Akaw! de aku makalingun, bina balinuknuk aku!
Kurudupdup – very low or wee light. Ex: Wag ka nga lang diyan Ikong, kita lang kita kahit makurudupdup.
Makudup – firewood that’s very hard to light. Ex: Akaw! Hirap pasindihin nitu ay madre kakaw, makudup!

That ends our lesson for the week!
