There's getting to be a lot of Filipinos working in Singapore.
A lot of them are friends already. Better pick up some of their lingo.
I found this website and the first word I'm picking up is 'pahinga'.
I like this word 'pahinga' in Tagalog (Filipino) which means "rest, relaxation, day off"... something I need badly.
Did you know that Tagalog Lang translates as "Tagalog Only" in Tagalog?
root word: hinga
rest, relaxation, day off
