“Nay, nay, sasakay po ba kayo?” I was in the Philippines for my summer vacation. I was visiting my grandson by then. The statement that the dispatcher asked me meant ”Ma’am, ma’am, are you going to ride?” Well, the truth is, for the Filipinos, when you call someone Nanay, it would actually mean “old lady”.
