Beautiful Sounding Filipino Words

I’ve been seeing a couple of articles about Filipino words that sound beautiful and these words are even in calligraphy that adds to its appeal.

I remember when I went on an AIESEC International internship in Hungary. My friends there would always say I sound like I’m singing when I speak in Filipino. I even brought my friends to the concert of the Loboc Children’s Choir who visited Hungary while I was there and they were even more charmed when they heard songs in Filipino.

And recently, at our Young Writers’ Hangout when we had Aneka Rodriguez as our guest poet to mentor our students, she read aloud a Filipino poem for kids. It sounded so beautiful that even I was amused by the sounds of the words.  It turns out the poetry book for kids that she brought is by National Artist Virgilio Almario entitled Buwan, Buwang Bulawan.

There are so many beautiful Filipino words and they sound beautiful too, but here are a few of my favorite gathered from the articles that I read:
