As usual, we started to ask how to say on greetings. For the meantime, I will say a simple words or sentence because I just decided to create one here recently. But before that, I will tell some backgrounds on our dialect.
From history, Philippines gone into Spanish colony in 16th century and American territory at the beginning of 20th century. Well, I dont exist that time. Was born late 70's.
Countries nearby are Indonesia, Malaysia, Palau, Vietnam and Republic of China. Thus, places nearby can adopt their languages or we have mixed languages. Some native and some borrowed words from foriegn languages. I agree with that. One time, I got a chance to travel Malaysia, some of their language-the Bahasa
similar to us..others soundlike but different meaning, though intonation is different. Found it pretty easy because we use romanized letters, I mean similar alphabets unlike in Thailand, Vietnam or Chinese writings. Still now, we speak some Spanish words and quiet advantage to us to learn more about it. Not only words, we adopt but also some cultures or traditions. As observed, Chinese already here in Philippines. Since kid, I saw them already even from history subject..it tackled. Chinese came here for business, and keep on going until now. Thats why am curious to learn for it and now am studying chinese-mandarin. Lately, I noticed Koreans are coming and growing here. Well, another history to tell. Am saying all of these, so to the people who lives to what I mentioned the place are quiet advantage to mingle or speak to somebody here.
