The Biology

As my last post for this month, I am importing the following blog post from my Multiply blog, with corrected translations. Hope you enjoy watching/understanding/comprehending it. 🙂

Note: This is intended for those who can understand Filipino. If you’re among the majority who cannot, then go study the language. Better yet, study Ilocano to verify my translations. (Being a polyglot is really nice.)

BTW, this was posted at Multiply on Apr 20, ’09 9:42 AM.

# == Start of document == #

Sa mga nakakaintindi ng Ilocano diyan, ignore the following translation.

(Disclaimer: Pasensya na kung merong maling translation. Although I AM fluent in speaking and understanding the Ilocano language, I MAY not be fluent enough.)

(intro music)

Nanay: (titingin-tingin…) Hoy, Teresa, sandali nga…. Sandali kako. Tumayo ka nang maayos.. tumayo ka, tumayo ka. Mag-straight ka. (Comment: straight sa pagtayo.)

(Anak: pa-obvious, kinapa ang tiyan. :))

Nanay: Bakit yan? (Comment: This is the literal translation. Can also be translated as “Ano yan?”) Buntis ka ano? Buntis ka ano?

(Anak umiiyak na. lolz)

Nanay: (really pissed off) Sumagot ka!

Anak: Opo… opo nanang… (nanang = nanay)

Nanay: Nanang ka diyan… Bakit buntis ka? Sinong nambuntis sa iyo? (Comment: I am really clueless about this, so I made the translation in this part as close as possible.)

Anak: Kasi po nanang… Project po namin ito sa school…

Nanay: Anong kalokohan ang sinasabi mo?! Project? Buntis, project? Bakit, anong subject yang project yan?! Pati buntis, may project?!

Anak: Project po namin sa Biology… Mystery daw of life…

Nanay: Sinong nakabuntis sa iyo?!

Anak: Ganito daw po ang simula ng buhay….

Nanay: Sabi ko, sinong gumawa niyan? Kung ano-ano ang sinasabi mo! Ano?!

Anak: Ano, nanang…

(scene change?)

Anak: Marami po sila, nanang…

Nanay: Anong sinabi mo?! Anong marami sila? Gusto mong… (nanggigigil na…) Sabihin mo kung sino sino sila.

(scene change ulit?)

Anak: Pero…

Nanay: Sabihin mo na a at ipapakulong ko iyong nakabuntis sa iyo!

Anak: Di nyo po sila pwedeng ipakulong nanang…

Nanay: Bakit?

Anak: Kasi… GROUP PROJECT PO ITO! (all caps kasi sinigaw nya)

Nanay: Nge!
