(from Dictionary.com)

In my two months of having a public blog, I’ve realized that it is being seen by international readers. And then, I’ve realized that most of my blog entries so far are in mixed language, aka Taglish (a combination of Tagalog, one of the Philippine’s dialects, and English).

Actually, when I write blogs, I express them as they are in my mind. My mind will ask if they will sound alright in Filipino or English. But of course, obviously, speaking in my native tongue is much easier. But to cater a worldwide audience, the common language must be used.

But there are things much more expressed in Tagalog, like the lingoes, jokes, and words mostly influenced by our (pop) culture here. There are jokes here that will not be funny anymore when translated to English.

Well anyways, I’m here to share my thoughts, opinions, comments about anything. So if you have any questions (or been boggled by my weird jargon), feel free to ask me here.

So, what's on your mind?
