Slangs come and go, and today's current language fad is the resurgence of Tadbaliks, the reversal or mixing up of syllables to recreate a word.
Most popular nowadays are the words "lodi" and "petmalu," which translates to idol and malupet, respectively.
But while Pinoys are fond of complementing each other with lodi and petmalu, netizens are shookt when they found out there's a real man named Petmalu Lodhi.
DJ ChaCha of radio station MOR 101.9 posted a photo of the passport of a Pakistani man on her Twitter account on Thursday, November 16.
Look at his name: surname, Lodhi; given name, Petmalu.
Her followers cannot contain their shock.
