• #RepectForElders
    To show respect to the elderly population, there are honorifics before certain people's names, and calling someone older than you by their first name is impolite and rude in the Philippines.
    Loosely, for elder brothers, we call them Kuya and for elder sisters, we call them Ate. The same for elder cousins. We lovingly call the youngest as "bunso." For even more specific appellations for each sibling, refer to how we call each other traditionally:
    ** Toto - youngest brother
    ** Diko- second eldest brother (rooted in di or ji, depending on the Chinese/Japanese bent)
    ** Sangko - third eldest brother (came from the Japanese sansei, third in line)
    ** Kuya - eldest brother (from Chinese ordinal "co")
    ** Nene - youngest sister
    ** Ditse - second eldest sister (rooted in di or ji, depending on the Chinese/Japanese bent)
    ** Sanse - third eldest sister (came from the Japanese sansei, third in line)
    ** Ate - eldest sister (came from the word Aitche, or "ichi" meaning "first" in Japanese or Hokien)
    This actually we inherited from our Chinese and Japanese interactions a very long time ago.
