Becky: This is Must-Know Filipino Slang Words and Phrases, Season 1, Lesson 7. In this lesson you'll learn expressions to talk about a man being cool.
Becky: Do you want to be more creative than just saying "you're cool" when describing men? Especially if you're also a guy? These expressions are alternate ways to describe his appeal.
SLANG EXPRESSIONS
