"May Araw Din Kayo" [In Which Conrado de Quiros Pwns Gollum]

Conrado de Quiros pwns Gollum and her minions in his column in today’s Philippine Daily Inquirer. His piece, entitled “May Araw Din Kayo”, is written entirely in street Tagalog, the prolific writer justifying his deviation from convention by  saying that English could not possibly allow him to vent properly and by mentioning that August is the Buwan ng Wika (Language Month) in the Philippines.

The skillfully written piece reads in part:

At buti na rin lang mayroon tayong sariling wika. Di sapat ang Inggles para iparamdam sa inyo ang suklam na nararamdaman namin sa inyo. Di sapat ang Inggles para ipakita sa inyo ang pagkamuhi na nararamdaman namin sa inyo. Di maarok ng Inggles ang lalim ng poot na nararamdaman namin sa inyo.

Isinusuka na kayo ng taumbayan, mahirap man sumuka ang gutom.

Bravo.
