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.


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”.
