Hey, GK! nice of you to "come by!" (this is all thanks to clarity142)
Thank you for your support, and may I say the same to all the Admins and Mods of MH!!!
I think this goes the same way with some of my fellow "Filipino - MH Campers": Ayah, Clarity142, Nah-Nah, Dragonzair and the rests...
but I guess I shouldn't preempt them... (pasensya na po)
"Mabuhay kayong lahat" (Long live to you all) (hmmm... sounds Vulcanish)
BTW... I love coffee too!!!
LOL! (TNM - Tumatawa ng Malakas in Filipino ) Just when I thought nobody who is not a Filipino would reply here anytime soon, Gold Knight drops in here.
Maraming salamat sa pagdaan dito! (Thank you very much for passing by!) If you are interested in knowing what something translates to in Tagalog and Nah-nah & Dragonzair are unavailable at the moment, you could always post your questions here. There's got to be at least one of us Filipinos who are willing to answer your query.
So Nah-Nah and Dragozair taught you what's "Thank you", "You're good" (in terms of commenting an output), ""What are you doing?" and "I like/want coffee" (depending on the situation) respectively, among other stuff, in Tagalog. Not bad!
Shouldn't it be "Live long" instead of the other way around?
* A more literal way of saying "Maraming Salamat" (commonly translated as "Thank you very much") in English is "Thanks a lot" since marami means "many".
* "Mabuhay" may be translated to as "Cheers!" or "Salutations" (the greeting), so what okyatoks said can also mean "Cheers to all of you"

wow indeed p1noypri1de(first ever post too ). I just started this thread two days ago and I'm glad to see lots of interaction here. I guess this thread turned like a filipino convo thread .
@GK--nice to see you drop by. I'm sure you'll learn more Tagalog by visiting this thread.
@DD--of course, many knew you're Pinoy Cool that you're learning Spanish. Soon you'll be translating Rizal's "Mi Ultimo Adios."
Alibata or baybayin is the Filipinos ancient style of writing...
From: Fato Profugus
Alibata is an ancient writing system that was used in what is now the Philippines.
Although it was all but exstinguished by Western colonization, variants of it are still used in parts of Mindoro and Palawan,
and it is also increasingly used by Filipino youth as a way to express their identity.
From: Eagles Corner
Here you can see your words, names in Alibata, just choose the "Baybayin Script with Spanish Modifications" mode:

@clarity142: Kudos! For starting this thread!!!
nice research there okyatoks..Galing mo!!
Now okyatoks, I can't believe you even researched on Alibata! Here's a well-deserved ossu for all your effort *Give 1 Ossu!*
Saludo din ako kay (I also salute) clarity142 for starting this thread in the first place, even if it i's currently more of a convo thread
Hello dyan sa mga Pinoy sa MH! (Hello to the Filipinos in MH!)
Since I'm such a Wiki wh0re Here's what Wikipedia has on the following:
The Filipino Language
Taglish - "Tagalog infused with English", as you can see above
Languages of the Philippines - Tagalog is not the only language native to the Philippines, and they differ greatly!!
There are also articles on other aspects of Philippine language usage such as specific ones on the other indigenous Philippine tongues, Englog (more popular known to us as Konyo English), and Philippine English (how English is used by Filipinos). If you have doubts on Wikipedia, you can always look for these in a search engine.
BTW, did you know that there are editions of Wikipedia in Tagalog, Cebuano, Waray-Waray, Ilokano and Kapampangan?
Ayah!! you Wikipedia whore!! Good read there. The Englog thing is definitely intresting XDDD. By the way I can understand a fair bit of Ilocano. Sad thing, I'm not fluent with it.
Salamat! At least you know something else other than Tagalog that is from the Philippines, even if it's a little bit. I don't understand the other languages we have because no one has taught me those nor have I tried learning them. Add the fact that my dad was from Bulacan (Tagalog na Tagalog!) and my mom grew up in Manila.
Yay, 100 posts!
Hmm... convo threads in other languages is something we probably ought to look at ( just so you guys don't feel so tempted to turn these threads into convo threads which is perfectly understandable! )
Maybe you guys could just start a separate thread here in this forum where you could talk in your own native language without getting off-topic (teaching the language, etc.)? Something like the Tagalog Hang-Out Thread - I dunno though XD
Oh well, just a suggestion ( "aha, talaga, talaga..." )
Another thing Nah-Nah taught me was "ay nako kumain ka na ano ba yan" when I had gone for a day without something - XD I found that one amusing ^^
Anyway my pleasure to visit ( and congrats, Ayah, on the 100th post! *akap* )
