    Yes, just like Bro...

    Hi Olga. Yes, "sis" is actually the short form of "sister" in this sentence.

    Yes, but you see it is like a title. Hi, sis. Well done sis.
    Sis is a teacher. Sis went to London.
    It is informal but common.
    It would seem a lot more informal, & probably less common, to say "My sis went to London." --> "My sister went to London". "My sister is a teacher".
    As with many informal things, I suspect you will find it more common among young people.
