We’ve been a bit serious here at FS. I think it’s time for a bit of fun, and perhaps a language lesson too. Here are a few riddles for you to try your Tagalog at.
1. Wala sa langit, wala sa lupa, kung tumakbo ay patihaya.
2. Kumpul-kumpol na uling, hayon at bibitin-bitin.
3. Apoy na iginuhit, isinulat sa langit.
4. Bahay ng kapre, iisa ang haligi.
5. Nang bata pa ay apat ang paa, nang lumaki ay dalawa, nang tumanda ay tatlo na.
Have fun!!! Leave your answers in the comments. I’ll post the correct ones next week.
