pook-a-bee /pu’k ə bi’/ n. A toddler’s rendition of the popular English game peek-a-boo; influenced by a Pinoy dyslexic sense of humor; other examples include, erap = pare = friend, rapsa = sarap = yummy, sengla = laseng = drunk.

… Little Libra’s contribution to Pinoy slang. She’s so Pinoy she coined it while she was eating her mangos with rice.
