Hi all,

sorry for the delay - I'm having some issues at work and then overslept!! (note to self - always get a wake up call)

pic of the day cannot be uploaded - didn't bring my cable to work. I promise some tomorrow!!

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!

Now the workds to filipino - the song - only have this much so far!
Bebot bebot
hot chick
Be bebot bebotBe bebot bebot be
hot chick hot chick hot chick hot chick
Ikaw ang aking (x2)
you are my
Bebot bebotBe bebot bebotBe bebot bebot be
hot chick
Ikaw ay
You are

Hoy pare pakinggan nyo ko
Hey dude listen to me
Eto nang tunay na filipino
here s the real 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
Yung ballot,
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

These include:

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!!

Even I'm not aventurous enough to eat some of that stuff...I would try horse, snake meat (but not the liver, and I have eaten frog. The rest is gross. I could never eat dog or cat. That's too damn depressing.

Great work on Filipino! Filipino!Filipino! Filipino!.
