Hard Yakka.. is a brand of work trousers here.. we still use the term Dagg.. and yeah some still use the bogg house.. and use the term "chuck a bog" instead of goin to poo.. and yeah we still use lingo... just like we call filipinos "filo" and abboriginals "abo" (note never say Abo coz that is very offensive, i lost marks for using Abo in my essay.. and i only used it coz writting the whole word "aboriginal" is damn long.. just like i use the term "govt" instead of "Government").. ermm what else.. we have so much NEW lingos and ditched the old ones..
