Vicks

Ricky remembers those Vicks Vaporub commercials where the mom would apply Vicks on her child’s chest to relieve him or her of nasal congestion.

Names

Ricky remembers when people would call a kid whose name they didn’t know “Bata”. As in, “Bata, bata…” or “Huy bata!”

Ricky also remembers that in Ateneo, it was more upscale. They would call each other, “Pal”.
