Saying goodbye is never easy, but remembering always softens the blow. In this new lesson from the Kspeak Crew, we talk something every Filipino can relate to – migration! We will also learn how easy it is to use the future tense in Filipino! Kinig na!
A: Lilipat kami papuntang States.
B: Hah? Kailan kayo aalis?
A: Bukas na.
B: Ay. Huwag mo akong kalimutan ah.
A: We’ll be moving to the States.
B: What?! When are you leaving?
B: Oh.. please don’t forget me…
They say that if you can drive in the Philippines, you can drive anywhere. But this innate talent of driving has to come from somewhere right? Of course! And all roads lead back to driving school which is what Mickey and Cris will discuss in 2012’s first Kalyespeak episode.
A: Marunong ka ba magmaneho?
A: Sige, ano yang hawak mo?
B: Cambio po.
A: Sira! Manibela yan!
A: Do you know how to drive?
A: Ok, so what’s that thing your holding?
B: The gear stick.
A: Crazy! That’s the steering wheel!
After a long wait, we’re back with, yes, you guessed it, another food-related lesson! Cris, Jov, and Mickey tackle a classic Pampangueno dish: sisig – a staple for almost every Filipino who drinks beer or hangs out in a grill. It’s delicious. It’s succulent. It’s pig’s head. And it’s making us hungry.
A: Gutom na ako!
B: Maghintay ka muna!
A: Bakit ang tagal?
B: Hindi pa luto yung sisig!
A: AAARGH! GUTOM NA AKO!
B: Just wait a while!
A: What’s taking so long?
B: The sisig isn’t cooked yet!
A: ARGH! I’M HUNGRY!
Caught in a pickle? Bite off more than you can chew? Crap hit the fan? Thinking of eating that balut? In love with Katy Perry but you’re not Russell Brand? Well, if you don’t know what to do, then listen in! Cris and Mickey talk about this odd, yet interesting, Filipino expression!
Ever notice that something romantic’s a-brewing between two of your friends? Ever see the subtle touches on the shoulder, the intimate whispers, the exceedingly awkward politeness? Ever want to put them on the spot?! Well, in this Pika-pika, you’ll learn how! With just one annoying word (can it even be considered a word?!), you’ll be putting romantic issues of others out in the open (or even make romantic issues out of nothing!). So, listen in and master the art of the perfectly-timed ‘Yihee!’.
We know, we know, Pika-pika’s usually a once-a-month thing… but not this month – especially with this EXTRA SPECIAL PIKA-PIKA! Listen in as Kalyespeak finally tackles the “L” word and Cris talks about his upcoming foray in Beijing! And if that’s not enough, we have our very first guest – all the way from New York! Ispesyal na ispesyal! 🙂
Ever arrive home and find your kid doing something he isn’t supposed to be doing? Ever had a bad day at work, get stuck 5 hours in ridiculous traffic, and get a text message that your boss wants you to come back for overtime? Ever been flabbergasted and wanting for a Filipino expletive to express yourself? Well, here it is! But unlike other languages, it’s not a dirty word – in fact, it’s a call to the high heavens. Listen in as the Kspeak trio invoke the family of all families in this peculiar Filipino expression!
