Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian may not be part of the millennial or Gen Z generation, but he certainly knows how to speak their language.

Gatchalian on Thursday, January 20, shared a photo of himself in which he appeared to be agitated while pointing a finger at a woman as other ladies looked on inside the venue.

The mayor, however, said he wasn’t at all upset.

“Hindi po kami nagtatalo… Nakiki ‘marites’ lang ako sa pila kanina…,” he said.

“Marites” is a colloquial term for gossipers. Its usage in daily conversations has grown in the past year.

Gatchalian is back to making the rounds of the city after finishing his mandatory quarantine for COVID-19.
