"Po and Opo" These two words are often heard from children addressing their parents, or when addressing an elderly and when talking to someone much older than you. Saying these two words are act of respect and one of the greatest values Filipino culture can be proud of. If you try to translate "po"and "opo" into other languages, there is no word that can compare to act of respect that these two words bring.

DUYAN means to cradle, widely accepted in Filipino culture. A hammock fashioned from fabric strung up on opposite points on the wall or ceiling. The material varies: cloth is common, but there are also duyans made of rattan, hand-woven abaca, lubid (rope) and fishnet material. Some mothers place a thin mat or mattress for duyans that have spaces or gaps in them as added support for the baby's back. For generations, PINOY'S used the duyan for naps or to rock babies to sleep.
