If you were to look up the meaning of “Bastos” in the Filipino dictionary, you might find it could mean a variety of things—rude, nasty, cheeky, cocky, and even indecent, depending on the context. For us, Bastos is more of an attitude. It is an attitude that knows you can’t please everyone, so just do what makes you happy. If you were to observe a lion in its natural habitat, you might see why they call him the king of the jungle. But to the lion, he is not trying to act like a king, he is just being a lion. That is the essence of the Bastos Life. Others will have their own opinions of who they think you are, and that’s ok. Just do you.
