He used these words when he said that people from the government of Manila before allegedly were receiving bribes.
“Let’s be honest with our conversation. The rule of the streets, honor among thieves. Iyan ang umiiral sa kalye, kaya ayan pag sinabi, ‘O para kay Eddie to, para kay Patty to.'”
LAM-A NA THIS
Definition: Alam Na This!
The Manila Mayor used this term that means “it is already an obvious thing”.
“Yun na yun, lam-a na this. kasi wala ka naman choice, e, dahil kapag hindi ka nagbigay, bukas wala kang tinda.”
He pointed out that bribery already happened before in Manila.
“Ang buhay, real talk na tayo, a, gusto niyo ng details. Sige, gusto niyo ng details, hindi ka magga-gayla.”

“Maya-maya lang, darating na yung kulektor, i-chuchuchu ka na sa lespu.

He also said that there are also “paupahan” in Manila but it does not involve houses but electricity.
