  1. PUNDIDO Pundido may sound like a burnt out light but the word means cast iron.
  2. SENEPA No one was kicked in the process of writing this article. Senepa is fascia board in Filipino.
  3. MULDURA This means molding.
  4. MONYEKA It’s not a curse word, it’s just a Filipino word for varnish finish.
  5. LASTILYAS Pastilyas is a sweet Filipino delicacy. Lastilyas though, means mortar.
