A little bit.

One Sunday afternoon at the Church (International Christian Assembly in Bangkok, Thailand): Nira was talking to Cheska, her English-speaking Filipino friend. It was Nira's first time to see Cheska's baby sibling.

"Uyy, kapatid mo? (Is he your sibling?)" Nira asks

"This is my baby brother," Cheska replied

"Lalaki ba yan? (Is he a boy?)" Nira asked

"A little bit," Cheska proudly replied. (all of us laughed our hearts out!)

Apparently Cheska didn't understand her question, she doesn't even know how to count in Filipino but she can understand her father's scolding in Kapampangan (another Filipino dialect)--or is she pretending to understand?? :)
