    So recently I have became interested in this cute Filipinos friend/girl in a few of my classes. We were making small talk during math class and I found her to be a very interesting person. She had been living in NYC for a few months but hasn't gotten out to see that much so I quickly gathered up some courage and asked her if she'd like to go to some places with me sometime, she said yes. A few days later we scheduled to go to the American Musuem of Natural history and the central park zoo on Wednesday (this Wednesday). We had a nice time but because of my shyness and introversion I couldn't really flirt so I remained at "friends hanging out" and never became some kind of date. Anyways, I wanted to hang out with her again but shes busy most of the time, (she explained each time why she couldn't so I don't believe she was trying to get out of it, plus she did enjoy Wednesday and said she gets lonely in New York). So the long story of this is because I'm wondering if anyone has advice on how to bring things up a notch with a girl that I can rarely hang out. Also anyone know how to flirt with a girl from the Philippines, or anything I can say/do that would impress her? I'm actually a bit willing to learn a bit Tagalog. Any questions since this was probably confusing?

    I'm assuming she was born in the US?? I'm half-filipino so i know a little bit about the culture. If she is the proper, "good girl" type then she's gonna want a nice guy who can take charge, believe me. It wouldn't hurt to show her that you have interest about where shes from. The key is be confident or you're finished.

    Shes from the Philippines but has been to America a few times. Shes here as an international student and wants to stay here for a few years for school. And I have shown that I am really interested in her culture. Thanks that helped.

    How are you: Como Sta kah, kai bee gan
    Good/Thank you, and How are you: Mabuti, Como Sta Kah, yo
    Friend: kai bee gan

    Como Sta kah serves as a basic greeting like hi, hello, how are you, etc.
    I do not believe we ever used specific greetings such as morning, evening, etc., but my fam is poor and the other part didn't even speak tagalog. I'm happy to just remember the little I do, haha.

    Once you marry her you can use the word "pek pek", but until then don't say anything remotely close to it. ;)

    Also, as far as what to do, why not taker her out to dinner and then dancing? I really like the Sullivan room, it has a good atmosphere for dancing, flirting, and yes, talking. First fridays at the Guggenheim?

    The Brooklyn Museum has a Murakami exhibit, which is very cool, until July. Botanical garden, S.o.L., hiking in Inwood, Mets game, there are so many places here that she'd be hard pressed to turn down a date to attend. Talk to her and find out her interests, then offer to take her out.

    Its been months since me and her have actually "gone out" and that was only once. But I'm gonna be trying again soon but just as "You wanna hang out again" if not, then well I'll go back to doing my business. And thanks guys, I really appreciate it.

    According to an online translator; Ka Tumingin Tunay Maganda, means "You are very beautiful" Though I doubt its 100% accurate, what does it mean?
    And now I"m very curious, what is pekpek?

    well, online translators translate them word by word.. so it's not grammatically correct.. "you are very beautiful" can be said in numerous ways.. "ang ganda mo" is one of them.. it's just hard teaching you this, coz i dunno how i can elaborate on which syllable you need to put a stress on, intonations, etc.

    ka = you
    tumingin = look
    tunay = true/real
    maganda = beautiful

    i hope you get my PM about the p-word

    It also depends on what region of the Phils she is from. There are many different dialects there. If you are familiar with Spanish at all that may help some. Many of their words are Spanish.

    A few other words not to say:
    Gagoo
    Titi
    Kiki
    Susu
    Poet
    Tadantado
    Panocha

    When you have ng, you pronounce it like in the word long. always like that.



    so it's:
    Ang (just like you say aaah, then add the ng sound)
    ganDA (stress on last syllable)
    mo (not pronounced as mow, so it's like with a short o)
    naMAN (stress on last syllable again, pronounce the letter a with the aah sound)
    ngahYON (for the last syllable, its just like saying the word on, just add a Y before it)

    and there are no pauses between the words with 2 syllables.


    well, that was hard. hope i didn't confuse you more. lol

    Panocha is pussy. I use panochita when speaking spanglish, but have never heard it used in tagalog.


    :fingersx: Good luck! :fingersx:
