Good afternoon to all, it's me again, at your service, lol, how are you? Me, haven't been sleeping or didn't get good sleep for days now 'coz been dealing with things here, thinking too much as well as watching a thainovela and talking to my bf, lol, in short, lack of sleep for few days now, lol, hopefully after i wrote this one, will have an afternoon nap again 'coz i haven't got it as well for few days now and eyebags now's real, lol, made a photo collage of the flowers that blooms again for the nth time, it's a small violet flower and it's kinda cute so i shared it here.

Boracay's a tourist destination. Since it's a tourist destination, you will know, notice and will learn that the people living and working here uses different dialects and that's aklanon( the dialects here in Boracay), cebuano, ilonggo, tagalog, antiqueno, kiniray-a(the dialects in Hambil or in San Jose, Romblon), English. By the way, hope you like the flower collage i made, lol

Some of the people living and working here also learned other language and even speak it fluently like Korean Language, Mandarin for Chinese, Spanish, Russian and German language too.

Been here for 13 Years now, since my father died on 2008. Before, My Mother used to speak her dialects to us, same with My Deceased Father, who happens to be a Kapampangan. At work, most of my workmate happens to be Ilonggo for the Hotel Owner's Ilonggo themselves, had learned some of their dialects and some other dialects and language too, lol, but guess, i happen to like Ilonggo as it's a sweet one, imagine, even if Ilonggo's mad or angry with you, their tone's still sweet, lol

So here's the words i've learned from that dialect, some's just basic, though, lol
