Word-High July: 30 Beautiful Filipino Words

Remember the May Book Prompts that May and I created? Well, my good friend Rosema and her friend, Maria have developed a very intriguing and thoughtful month of prompts. Using Filipino words that not only look beautiful written, but they sound amazing when you speak them. Not to mention what each word means. I can’t wait for July to begin. Won’t you join us?

Banner 1Much like the colors of the skies, every language is beautiful in its own way—the way they sound and how each word fits perfectly in a poem, a story, or a musical piece. And sometimes we find ourselves wishing how delightful it would be if we could learn those languages by heart and use them in our craft.

That is why Maria of Doodles and Scribbles and Rosema of A Reading Writer have invited you to join their July blog event, Word-High July. They have teamed up to give you a whole month worth of prompts and since we are both #ProudlyPinay, these 30 beautiful Filipino words below will serve as the prompt for each day of the month.

      1. I wish I could, but I can’t commit myself to any challenges right now hehe 🙂 I’ll be supporting everyone who’ll participate, though.

      2. I think we are somewhat the exception to the stereotype of writers. We are all about encouraging others and being a positive force. This, of course, is not to say that all writers are this way, but for the most part they write, and write, and don’t interact much. I’m rambling, I apologize.
