You have to give your sweetheart something to laugh about. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer.

My name is Alan and I am an American that has been living in the Philippines since early 2014 and studying the Tagalog language and Filipino culture for many years before that.I am also learning the Cebuano (Bisaya) language at this time. The Tagalog people live in Manila and surrounding areas and even to the large islands of Mindoro and Palawan to the South. The Tagalog language as stated earlier is the basis for the Filipino national language.If you ask a native Filipino what the official language of the Philippines is, they will probably tell you Filipino and English.Quite simply they will love you for trying, even if you get the pronunciation wrong it will not matter because you have made an effort.To assist you with learning some Filipino phrases I have put together a useful list that will help you and enrich your travel within the Philippines.
