Today we have a lesson in Tagalog (tah-galog) words:
Guapo – (gwaa-po) handsome
Tama - correct
(but "having" tama is "crazy")
Mali – (ma-lei) Wrong
Bebot – (bay bot) – hot chick
bibo - (bee-bo) - smart boy
so I am a bebot - can't wait to come home to my guapo bibo!

Eto nang tunay na filipino

Galing sa baryo Sapang Bato
Came from (small town) Sapang Bato
Pumunta ng LA nagtrabaho
Went to LA to work
Para makatulong sa nanay
To help my mother
Dahil sa hirap ng buhay
Because life is hard (difficult)
Pero masaya parin ang kulay
But still full of color
Pag kumain nagkakamay
When eating using bare hands
Yung kanin, chicken adobo
Rice, chicken adobo
Yung balot, binebenta sa kanto
sold on the Street corner
Tagay mo na nga ang baso
Drink the shot
Pare ko inuman na tayo
Dude Lets all drink.
so that's all I have so far!! but I am working on it.
I have been talking to some of my students about different foods that are customary
horses (only the ones that didn't win the race)
frogs (they say frog soup is good)
snake (the liver is especially good for you)
but these are more reserved for ppl that live in the country .
chicken feet are eaten - they are called "adidas" think of the symbol - and guess why!
balot - the egg with a chick inside - they all say that that is good...i must try it....NOT!
chicken heads are eaten too - don't you feel wasteful!
Isaw -( ee-sow) - chicken intestines -
private parts of pigs - are said to make children who don't talk propperly speak properly (this is not true but is just a saying around here!
Well talk to you all tomorrow!!
I'll make sure I send pics tomorrow!!
