Donald and Johnny are neighbors and long-time friends. Johnny is worried about his crops this season because the weather looks bad.
The Tagalog word ‘pare’ is slang for friend, pal, or ‘homie’.
Donald: Kamusta ka, pare?
Johnny: Ayos lang, pare. Ikaw?
Donald: Nag-aalala ako sa aking mga pananim.
Donald: Mukhang masama ang panahon. Baka may dadating na bagyo.
Johnny: Walang bagyo sa balita. Huwag kang mag-alala.
Donald: Wala ba talaga?
Johnny: Oo, pero mukhang mag-uulan talaga mamaya. Maraming ulap.
Donald: Sige pare. Uuwi na ako. Maingat ka.
Johnny: Sige, paalam.
|Donald: How are you, friend?
Johnny: Just alright, friend. And you?
Donald: I am worried about my crops.
Donald: The weather looks bad. Maybe a storm is coming.
Johnny: There is no storm in the news. Don’t worry about it.
Donald: There really isn’t?
Johnny: Yes, but it looks like it will really rain later. There are many clouds.
Donald: Alright, pal. I’ll go home now. Take care.
Johnny: Alright, goodbye.
