Word of the Day

My students and I were discussing the concept of Simbang Gabi in class when one of them uttered a word that was actually new to my ear.

She said: "These days, people don't go to the Simbang Gabi. They go to the Simbang Gababes."

"Simbang Gababes," now that's a new word.

It apparently refers to young folks who go to the midnight mass and turn it into a soiree, making it a venue to meet potential girlfriends and boyfriends.

Ah, kids...
