LAU

This is not a standard Tagalog word.

Frequently used on social media and text messages, it is an informal shortening of the word layo (meaning: distance).

Ang lau !
So far away!

Ang lau mo.
You’re so far.

Unrelated to the above, Lau is also a common surname of Filipinos with Chinese ancestry.
