buotan

 

gitawag tikawng buotan
kay buotan ka para nako, miga
kay di ka dawo sa imong mga ideya
pero di pud tanga para mabugalbugalan ka

What? Buotan ko? I’m not!

Sa imong pangutana ako nakapangutana
unsa man gyud diay meaning anang pulonga
nga bisan ga-layout ko diri
niundang ko para magsusi?

kibaw ta unsay buotan, di ba?
apan hangtod asa?

buotan ka ba kay mosunod ka sa sugo
bisan mura ka nag mutsatsa?

buotan ka ba kay mopasensiya
bisan pagkatawo nimo gitumban na?

buotan ka ba kay manggihatagon ka
bisan pamlete, sa tinuod lang, wa na?

usa ray gituhoan nako, miga
tanan tawo buotan ug boang
kung wa ka gisapot, buotan ka
kung sapoton ka, palayo nalang ta.

sa dagan aning suwata, 
hasta ako galibog na
buotan, unsa na?
aw, basta!

diri sa balay

Anhia ko diri sa among balay…

ganahan ko kitang duha diri mopahuway

gahuwat tawn…

 

nalata na ang lingkoranan nga kahoy

kilid sa bintana

nalaya na ang mga masitas

puti na kaha ni akong buhok?

nifade na ni akong purol

 

apan ang panahon milabay lang

molabay lang

nangalaya og nangaguba na tanan

apan naghuwat gihapon

kung usbon natog acting

di ko molakaw

maghuwat ra ko sa kilid sa bintana

 

hangtod kanus-a…

pwede ra pud sa next life

basta sure ko

maghuwat ko sa lingkuranan

kilid sa bintana

 

kung moanhi ka

remember, guba ang ring

Ever wondered how’d it go if you name your computer docs, graphics, files, and folders in the local dialect? Well…they read weird. Not an “ew” weirdness, but a beautiful and romantic feeling of weirdness, char.

The conscious mind tells us that a computer is something English in nature. But is it really? Commands, buttons, notifications–unless you have other foreign language as the default like French–are all in English. Automatically, we save our files in…English…ta-da! However, there are no restrictions as to how you name your files, really-really. You can name your files in any way that you like, unless a dialogue box pops up to say you’re doing it the wrong way. Some young people would even name their files like how they text from their cell phones–jejemon style but still in English.

But why should you name your computer documents, files, and folders in Binisaya? Because you will like it, I promise you–well, if you choose to be on the same wavelength as me. It’s unique. It’s homey. It’s you, and you know it better than English. You can play with the words when you name your files using Binisaya.

At home, I name some of my folders and files in Binisaya because I am Cebuano, because I like to, and it’s our PC, hmmm. I labeled my flash drive Basyang. At work, I changed my personal folder’s name to “mga hinimo ni Deb.” So far, I’m having fun naming my files in Binisaya.

Want an online source for those hearty, unique, and fun way of naming your files? Check out http://www.binisaya.com/cebuano. It’s a helpful Binisaya online dictionary.

Ironically, the blog is written in English–haha…

Have a cheerful day!

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
