Funny Batangueño Quotes
For those who do not know yet, Agencia Le Travelistas is registered here in Batangas. Well, I am not going to talk about the company in this post but about Batangas. Batangas is around 2 hrs away from Manila and can be reached by either a bus or a private car. It is famous not only for the beautiful beaches and diving spots but also for “Kapeng Barako”, “Balisong”, Lomi and for the famous expressions- “Ala eh!” and “ga”.
My friends back then in college used to have fun on my words and my accent but later on, they learned to get adopted to it. But as me and my sisters were pondering about our “native language”, we realized that there are really some words that seem to be wrong and if you are a stranger to that language, you would think that the person using those words funny or worst, crazy. Well, I am not writing this to degrade my own language. Don’t get me wrong. I love my language and I am proud to be born Batangueña. Anyways, here are some lines. To our foreign readers, I apologize if you will not be able to understand some words. But if you get interested with Batangas, you can just contact us. Okay, back to the main point.
“Isang bangkay natagpuang patay!” (Kaya nga bangkay na e, that means patay na. Peace!)
“Nakain ka na ga ng isda?” (This is scary, that means, were you eaten by the fish?)
“Saraduhan mo ang pinto at lalabas ang aircon” (Another funny line)
“Bili na po kayo ng gamot na are at lahat ng sakit ay dala” (Again, that’s scary! Who would buy a medicine that carries all kinds of sickness?)
“Pahidan mo yang bata ng dumi.” (That means you have just asked that person to put dirt on that child!)
“Ay labas na kayo at kakain.” (This is mostly used during fiesta. You’re already inside the house and the host would urge you to go out of the house to eat? By the way, Batangueños are also one of the most hospitable people. They would really go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable.)
“May dala ka gang sasakyan?” (Who am I? Atlas? Am I that strong to carry a vehicle?)
“Ay si Jovit Baldivino ga ay nalabas pa sa tv?” (Again, this one is funny)
“Buksan mo nga yang TV.” (Huh? What am I? a technician?)
Ok. You might be thinking that I am starting to get rude here. No! If you would just take time to understand our Batangueño language, you will surely love the place and its people.
Here are some photos taken in different places in Batangas.
