Meanwhile, a Facebook page, Emedia Mo, has shared a video in the locals’ language, Chavacano (or Philippine Creole Spanish which is a Spanish-based creole language spoken in parts of the Philippines, especially in and around the city of Zamboanga, by over 600,000 people).

  1. Meanwhile, a Facebook page, Emedia Mo, has shared a video in the locals’ dialect, Chavacano (described by many as broken Spanish).

    >>>> Chavacano is Chavacano and it is NOT a Broken Spanish because it was never spanish but a Creole Language called “Chavacano Language”. bdw, it is NOT also a mere dialect but a Language of its own birth right.
