Hi Jon, whoa 1989 was really long time ago, im still a child by that time tongue.gif you know any tagalog word? wink.gif


I probably won't spell these right but I will try.I'll also put the English definitions with them so you can see if I am right. Let's see: Kumusta? (How are you), Hinda ako nagsaslita ng Tagalog (I don't speak Tagalog).
That's about all I remember. Yeah, it was a long time ago (I'm 43) but I remember it like it was yesterday smile.gif. I actually remember the apartment I rented was at 100 Kessing Street. I was dating a girl who was from Leyte. I managed to get out of Olongapo and go out into the countryside and those are some of the prettiest areas I have ever seen. smile.gif

Hehe.. well it's a martial art that originated in the Philippines and it uses sticks and knives. Whilst many martial arts are empty handed, the Philippines has always had a blade culture so their martial art reflects that by being a weapon based system. Very effective and painful ! smile.gif
