Airbnb is a popular global online accommodation and home-sharing service designed for travelers. It is shortened from Air Bed and Breakfast…in the Philippines, it also has a different (jokingly) meaning – Air Binignit and Biko, especially during long religious holidays like the Holy Week and All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days.
Filipino families travel (Air) to their ancestral homes and eat Binignit and Biko (BnB) in family reunions. Binignit is a popular Cebuano dessert during these times while biko or sweet rice cake is just as common on the dining table.
