I am a Filipino living in New Jersey. As a teenager, I have to assimilate Western culture in a rapid pace in able to keep up with my
American friends, and what gets left in the sidelines, more often than not, is my Pinoy heritage. I try to stay in touch by speaking Tagalog and my
native tongue, Waray-waray, whenever I get the chance, or read Filipino news on the Internet, but these only happen rarely and only when I
muster enough interest to do so. Thanks to people like you, I get the chance to learn some
Filipino history, while having fun playing with a new font. Again, Thank you and I wish more Filipinos had the same inspiringly enthusiastic interest in
their own history as you do.
Hi, WOW, such much here to look at. I will finish lookin'
around in a minute but I first wanted to let you know I was here and that
I am enjoying myself. Thank you for offering such a wonderful site for
Your website is very organized, and very informative. I shall refer it
to my friends. Mabuhay and more power to you!!!
Congratulations! I love your website. I am a Filipino living
in the Philippines and I read your articles on the Pilipino word origins.
I want to know more about adopted Tagalog words. I hope you will continue
with this site forever. Again, congratulations and more power to you!

Thanks very much. I found your site the best organized and most aesthetically
pleasing of the baybayin sites. By the way, you have a link to a TV story
on baybayin/alibata tattoos on your web site. One of the people in the
story is a "researcher" on alibata tattoos. That's me.

Maganda, natulungan akong makagawa ng project. Thank you!
Hi! I found your site in the Ring of Philippine Websites. You made a great
job. Keep up the good work. Also check us out our address at:
This is one of the best and one of the few beautiful websites I've visited.
Not simply talking about appearance but also content. Got more information
for my children research homeworks easily here than any websites around.
Thanks and Keep it up!
I just wanted to extend
my thanks for all your efforts and research regarding the "Baybayin."
I am a thirty-two year old Filipino desperately searching for my true heritage
in an attempt to understand myself. It is refreshing to come across
positive information regarding Filipino history. The obscure mentions of
the Philippines or Filipinos in the mass media are usually made in the
context of ridicule or criticism.
Your websites are a link
to a prouder time for Filipino people. It is fantastic to know that
my ancestors were literate,despite assertions made in history texts, written
(too often) from a colonial perspective.
Again, thank you for your
I enjoy visiting your website about the Tagalog Baybayin. I hardly
remember Baybayin as I only study it briefly when I was still studying
my high school in the Philippines. In this modern time, I hardly
see or know anyone interested in Philippine culture or history. I
met people who are more interested about Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam or
Cambodia. But not the Philippines.
The text in your website was very well written in Tagalog. Did
you write it yourself? Anyway, I hope you keep the website. Salamat,
-Jay Gonzales, Australia
Very educational...cool website!

Amazing! Am new here in Winnipeg but I feel no stranger here. And yes,
this is amazing, I've learned so much Pinoy info from your cool yet simple
web! I hope you update this page so often and Mabuhay ka!
-Edwin, Winnipeg, Canada
This is cool. I like how this website was put together. Thank
You for representing for the Filipino People.
Salamat for a nice site. You're welcome to my abode, too:
this is so cool. i am even gonna have a tattoo on my arm with my
name translated from the ancient scripts. Are there any variations
on the alphabet, i.e., ilocano version, visayan version, tagalog version...
Mr. Paul Morrow,
I would like to let you know that I am very impressed by your website.
You really did a good job, imagine researching about Filipino alphabets
and writing, that most of us Filipinos are not aware of. Thank you very
much for the contribution, I know that all Filipinos back home or abroad
will really appreciate your website. Yours truly,
-Bong Domingo, Dallas, Texas
naku ha, kakaiba at kapaki-pakinabang laluna para sa ating kabataan abroad.
you might want to popularize your webpage to our next generation pinoys/pinays
born outside our country.
-Chuchi and Cha Cala of Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Great site, full of interesting info. Wish I had your language ability
Paul, after four years I'm still mixing tagalog and pampangan words. Keep
up the good work.
-Tom Mewes, Saudi Arabia
Many congratulations for making the Tagalog script available to folks.
Nice website. I love it. I miss Philippines so much and your
website helps me overcome my feelings by making me feel like I'm actually
over there. Thanks.
Hi Paul :)
Kahanga-hanga talaga! Your information is very concise...a very good
reference for students. I most especially enjoy the history and the
photo album pages. Thank you for this wonderful website. More power!
-Michele Majul, Winnipeg, Canada
Humahanga naman ako sa'yo at meron kang website tungkol sa kulturang
Pilipino. Nakakahiya naman para sa amin dahil, kung tutuusin, naturingan
kaming Pinoy pero wala kaming website na katulad ng sa iyo.) Sana, ipagpatuloy
ninyo ang pagtuklas at pag-aaral. Maraming salamat at mabuhay ang mga Pilipino
-Karenina "Kalon" L. Tariman, quezon city, philippines
I really like your website! It has lots more interesting and substantial
info than the websites I've seen. Keep up the good work. I'll be sure to
look in on it regularly!
I was just surfing the net when I came across your page from Realpinoy.com.
Your site is very interesting. I have been here in Toronto for a
long time and I am not very fluent in Tagalog. I was raised in Pangasinan,
Philippines but I was born here in Canada...
I did not speak tagalog a lot while I am here in Canada so I guess you
can say that you are much, much better than me when it comes to speaking
tagalog. I was also surprise to see that you are Caucasian... you
should be very proud that you know how to speak better tagalog than other
filipinos. I can speak ilokano, tagalog and a little cantonese....
- Judy Membrere, Toronto, Canada
Natuklasan ko lamang ngayon ang iyong napakagandang website tungkol
sa Baybayin. Ako'y natuwa na iyong isinulat ito sa wikang Tagalog.
Mas lalo pa akong nagalak nang aking malaman na ika'y hindi likhang Pilipino
ngunit mukhang Pilipino ang puso.
Ako rin ay may bagong website tungkol sa Baybayin. Sa website ko, maaari
mong isulat ang anumang salita o pangalang Tagalog, at ipapakikita sa iyo
kung paano isulat sa Baybayin. Iniimbitahan kitang bisitahin ito at bigyan
ako ng anumang payo upang lalo ko pang mapaganda ito. Ito ay iyong makikita
Gagawa ako ng "link" patungo sa iyong website, maari sanang i-link mo
rin ang website ko sa iyong website. Salamat.
- Victor Quimson, San Francisco, CA, USA
[I] find it AMAZING! Are you really fluent in Tagalog? (sorry if I asked)
Keep it up and more power. MABUHAY!
- connie gallo, Winnipeg, Canada (?)
Maraming salamat sa iyong masusing pagsulat. Mas magaling ka pang mag-tagalog
kaysa sa akin. Ang tagal ko nang naghahanap ng kasaysayan ng baybayin,
nakatagpo na sa wakas. Pagpalain ka ng Bathala!
- Mari Ramos, Bulakenyang nasa Riverside CA

Finally got to see your site. Great work. I hope you keep adding to it
to bring us interesting things about the Philippines and Canada.
- Hector Santos, Los Angeles, USA
It is really great to see more online written in Filipino languages
instead of just Egnlihs. . . like this note :) Also, you have added
more to Hector Santos' work on Baybayin - the down loadable fonts is a
great addition. A fine site. I'll be back.
- Tim Harvey, Portland, OR. USA
Thank you so much for being more Filipino than some Filipinos I know.
How's it going up there? I wish you the best always and I hope we get to
work again in Winnipeg. Take care.

Web page very well done; terrific contents--you should get a substantial
subsidy from the Philippine government/Education ministry for promoting
Filipino language, culture and history! More power to your web page!
