I’m starting the most wonderful month of the year with a reposted blog entry (Jan. 26, 2009) from my Multiply account. Enjoy!
Apparently some Filipino words as we know them today were not what they used to be during 17th century Spanish colonization. I learned that from Asian History (Hi16) today. For example:
gahasain = to hurry, bilisan, madaliin
ex: Anak, gahasain mo na ‘yan! Ano ba!
sayaw = sexual intercourse, pakikipagtalik, pakikipagsiping
ex: Aking irog, tayo nang magsayaw buong gabi.
bakla = afraid, takot, duwag
ex: Nabakla ako sa muscles mo, pare.
Moral: Next time, be careful with your words and who you are talking to. Hahahaha!
