Note: I made a brief introduction about Pictures of Life (Hulagway sa Kinabuhi) on my sidebar just above the Bisdak links. There’s an English version of this post below for friends & visitors who do not read Bisaya; and well, for fun in linguistic exercise as well.

K as in Kamunggay

Ang tawag sa uban ani malunggay. Pag google ko pa ang akong nasabtan kay malunggay ang English sa kamunggay busa basig tama ra akong bokabularyo ron para sa letrang K. Nakahinumdum na hinoon kog Balitang K, Rated K, naay K ug walay K. Moingon sila manguyab mo kana pud daw’ng naay K.

Matud pas klasmeyt nako sa hayskol ang mga inahan daw sa iyang mga anak maong wa niya pakasle kay iyang implikasyon mga babayeng walay K. Ingon pud akong amiga “he didn’t aim high.”

High as in kamunggay?  Motaas pud baya ning kamunggay no? (kaning sa hulagway nakita ko ni sa park) Naay nitubo sa lote atubangan sa ville nga among gipuy-an tong minyo pa ko. Mura kog nakakitag bulawan. Perting lipaya kay wa man gabaligyag kamunggay mga tawo dris akong barangay oi. Karon kay di man ko kaabot sa kahabog, aw gisungkit. Tingala ang gwardya unsay gibuhat sa golf club kinab-ot sa kamunggay.

Mao pa gyud siguro pagkakita niyag sagbot gisungkit ug golf club. Kay alangan wa man koy nakitang lipak nga pwede isungkit. Nabiktima lagi ang club sa akong banana q, aw bana diay, unsa bay bisaya aning ex-husband oi. Basta nakakaon kog kamunggay ug mao nay importante.

Ang ubang entre sama ani tua sa Bisdak Bloggers.

Malunggay (Kamunggay)
Other Bisdaks would call this malunggay. In Google’s definition of malunggay, it is actually the English word for kamunggay. So I must have picked the right word for letter K this week; which reminds me of other K’s like K News,  Rated K, 24 K and No K at all.  They say that if you should date someone, choose someone who has K. (Karat)
A high school classmate justifies his not marrying anyone among the mothers of his kids by implying that these women have no K. How unfortunate is that! My girl friend observes, “he did not aim high.”
I wonder how high should one aim to reach someone with some K. As high as a malunggay? Malunggays do reach considerable height. Sadly, they are nowhere in Thai markets. However, there was one I discovered growing on an empty lot opposite the ville that I lived in when I was married. Imagine my excitement at the gold I found. Alas! it was too high for me. But no worries. I reached a few branches with a golf club. That act sent the guard’s eyes bulging in astonishment.
It was obviously his first time to witness a golf club and a plant virtually unknown to him at close range. I could not find any stick to reach the leaves. Ex-hubster’s club was the only candidate in sight ideal to accomplish the mission. By the way, what the heck is the English word for bana sa una (former husband)? Whatever. I got to eat malunggay and that’s what mattered.
