>Filipino Sayings

>My College Barkada (yes, after more than 13 years we are very much in touch) sent in Pinoy Salawikains for one of our ka-barkadas school project. They are so interesting, and some are so hilarious (well, maybe not sayings anymore…)

Aanhin pa ang damo kung patay na ang kabayo?
Kung may tiyaga, may nilaga.
Kung maiksi ang kumot, matutong bumaluktot.
Bato-bato sa langit, ang tamaan… huwag magalit
Huli man at magaling, huli pa rin

Huli man at magaling, naihahabol din (better late than never)
Ang hindi marunong tumingin sa pinanggalingan, di makararating sa paroroonan
Buka ng bibig, kabig ng dibdib
Kung di ukol, di bubukol 
Guluhin mo ang lasing, huwag ang bagong gising
Aanhin pa ang damo kapag meron namang bato?
Kahabahaba man ang prusisyon, sa simbahan din nauuwi.
Some Melanie-isms and others:
“What are bitches for but to be bitches with other bitches” (pron.:  bitches = beeches)
“Don’t judge a book, if you are not a judge”
 “Don’t judge my brother; he is not a book”
 “Huli man at magaling, huli pa rin”
 “Kapag lalaki’y may bigote, maraming babae; kapag babae’y may bigote, ito ay lalaki”
