Dis Chabacana

Scenario:You sit in your pod and suddenly 2 people approach you.

Both of them speaks Dutch, English and Spanish.

Note: They are native Spanish speakers.

They needed a change of schedule.

One starts explaining in English at the same time that the other person starts explaining the same thing in Spanish.

Out of nowhere, you start processing the message in Dutch in your head.

You wrote the days down in Dutch.

And you ask them in Spanish:

“Son estos días, no?”

And you smile, and think:

“Pakilaya gaha yo ya ginda aki?”

And translate that further to:

“Paano kaya ako napadpad dito?”

To which you further translate to:

“This Filipina is conquering the Netherlands!”
