kaya pala, they sound very visayan. and the visayan they speak is more waray than cebuano.They are now called - "Bicolanos" or "Masbatenos", when it became a part of the Bicol Region. Utos ata ni Macoy. But long time ago, they are called Visayan but a part of Sorsogon during the Kastila period.
there are already stories of incidents where people from other places went to the market and asked for "sili" and not just ordinary "sili". it's the "malaking sili" (bell pepper) and imagine how they describe a "malaking sili". it's the BIG, RED, FAT and sometimes LONG or "Matulis" at the tip. think about what would be the first image that would register in the mind of naughty people in the market.I have another. try asking a market vendor in tacloban "meron kayong sili ? " :lol:
hehehe oo mahaba.. mapula.. malaki.. meron din maliit.. minsan medjo matulis sa dulo.. at syempre masarap ang lasa.. pagpapawisan ka talaga sa sarap.^^ mahaba ba ang sili? masarap ba ang lasa? ... hahaha... I'm told in some Filipino languages, Sili means Chili (pepper), but in some languages, it means... gwhahahaha... you know.
