Comment of Bianca Black:
The 47 year old lady from Andros was also familiar with the term "Bun Bun". She said we usually say my rice dry out and the bottom of the pot "bun bun" rather than saying burn. She went on to say that the bun bun part of the pot taste good and they usually call it the potcake. After my interview with her I was able gain three new terms to my actual Bahamian dictionary.

Comment of Iesha Sargent:
My grandmother is now fifty four years old, and a proud resident of Smith's Hill, South Andros. Even though she was born and raised in Andros ,she is very familiar with this 'Mayaguanian' term. She said, "Don't you dare throw away my bun-bun, I'm going to eat that for dinner tonight!"
