Hi! This blog is run by Quennie Marie Acedegbega. She is a BA Communication graduate, very passionate about art especially makeup. This is her personal blog. Here she writes her emotions, experiences, favorites, life advises and anything under the sun. Enjoy!
If we are going to ask Quennie to describe herself in one word the answer would be “friend”. The word kumaremo is a two words combined, kumare + mo. Kumare is actually a Filipino word that originate from a Spanish word compadre/compadre meaning friend (literally, “co-mother” or “co-father”). It is a relationship between the parents and godparents of a child, this relationship formalizes a pre-existing friendship.
Through time the word kumare is used to simply describe someone as a close friend.
And the word mo is your in English. So kumare + mo is YOUR FRIEND.
