When I was a kid, I remember Kuya Paolo liked making me sing Kabilin-bilinan ng lola, wag uminom ng serbesa, ito’y hindi inuming pambata, mag-softdrinks ka nalang muna. Sometimes he’d make me sing in front of his friends, and they’d be so amused, especially when I get to the di inuming pambata part. I didn’t understand why they thought it was so funny. I clearly didn’t understand the words that I was singing, but I was glad that I was entertaining them.
 My grandma always tells me not to drink beer. She says it’s not a drink for kids, so I should just drink softdrinks instead.
 It is not a drink for kids.
