Cebuano Words for Common Food Items (1)


Eating is an important component of socializing among Filipinos.  It is a ritual for all social events to include an eating portion.  Business meetings also finish with some refreshments or even a major meal.   An event is never complete without any sharing of thoughts over a simple or elaborate meal.  Filipinos eat more than five meals a day.   In the Visayas, they have a painit consisting of coffee with bread or local delicacy like puto, three meals a day and many in-between meal snacks.   Here are some useful vocabularies which you can use for meal times.

 B)  If a Filipino invites you to join him at his table, would you immediately accept the invitation?  Defend your answer.
