Hola amigo Equillo,
Yeah, I am a Filipino and I use Tagalog. Tagalog is a dialect of the Filipino language. You know, there are dozens of Filipino dialects like Hiligaynon, Bicolano, etc. Chabacano is a languange too in the Philippines and is the only Spanish-based creole in Asia.
Love the food you mentioned. Those are Filipino merienda treats. Love that!!!!
I am so glad you have a Filipina friend. So sad she is no longer with you and is in the US now. That's life! Good thing we are in the cyber age now. We can connect/communicate anywhere in the world. Gracias a Dios!
The English translations are so interesting. I love to read them over and over again. Of course there are strange parts but we cannot blame Ken. You know, you cannot translate word for word or meaning by meaning some of the Japanese lyrics. There are Japanese terms that have no equivalent in the English language. Japanese language is a very rich, molded and nourished by the Japanese people and several influences through the centuries. Atleast, wth the translations, we can have a good idea what message Ken really wants to convey in his songs. :-)
I find Hitomi really so romantic ( everytime I close my eyes......) whereas Elegy is the most passionate. Elegy gives me that chill other songs cannot. Precious Junk song describes me more of a person, who I am and where I want to be.... There are so much to get from Ken Hirai songs. One thing is for sure, I LUV them!!!!!
