Filipino Community Centre's 1st Anniversary

Jeproks. First heard in the Mike Hanopol song "Laki sa Layaw (Jeproks)," the term is Filipino slang that refers to a cool, laid-back, and street-smart guy from the projects. 

Bagets. First used as the title of a hit 1984 film starring William Martinez, Herbert Bautista, and Raymond Lauchengco, the term is Filipino slang that generally refers to young people. It is coined from the term "bagito" which loosely translates to a "newbie", a "neophyte" or an "inexperienced dude".
