INTRODUCTION
Becky: Expressions to Describe How You Feel About a Situation
Becky: Hi everyone, and welcome back to FilipinoPod101.com. I'm Becky.
Jay: And I'm Jay!
Becky: This is Must-Know Filipino Slang Words and Phrases, Season 1, Lesson 17. In this lesson you'll learn expressions to describe how you feel about a situation.
Becky: Whether you have given up, regret missing an opportunity, or you don't mind, these slang terms will express how you feel about the situation.
SLANG EXPRESSIONS
Becky: The expressions you'll be learning in this lesson are:
Jay: badtrip
Jay: keri
Jay: sayang
Jay: bahala na
Becky: Jay, what's our first expression?
Jay: badtrip
Becky: literally meaning "bad trip." But when it's used as a slang expression, it means "upset."
Jay: [SLOW] badtrip [NORMAL] badtrip
Becky: Listeners, please repeat.
Jay: badtrip
[pause - 5 sec.]
Becky: Use this slang expression to express disappointment or being upset about a situation. Now let's hear an example sentence.
Jay: [NORMAL] Na-badtrip ako nung nakita ko yun ex kong may kasamang iba. [SLOW] Na-badtrip ako nung nakita ko yun ex kong may kasamang iba.

Jay: [SLOW] keri [NORMAL] keri
Becky: Listeners, please repeat.
Jay: keri
[pause - 5 sec.]
Becky: Use this slang expression when you want to express that the situation is manageable. You can "carry" the weight by yourself. Now let's hear an example sentence.
Jay: [NORMAL] Person A: Ma-le-late daw si Trix. Person B: Keri lang. Wala naman tayong hinahabol na schedule. [SLOW] Person A: Ma-le-late daw si Trix. Person B: Keri lang. Wala naman tayong hinahabol na schedule.
Becky: "Person A: Trix said she will be late. Person B: It's okay. We're not running on any schedule anyway."
Jay: [NORMAL] Person A: Ma-le-late daw si Trix. Person B: Keri lang. Wala naman tayong hinahabol na schedule.
Becky: Okay, what's our next expression?
Jay: sayang
Becky: literally meaning "waste." But when it's used as a slang expression, it means "what a waste."

Jay: [NORMAL] Nabuhos ko ang tasa ng tsaa, sayang!
Becky: Okay, what's the last expression?
Jay: bahala na

Jay: [SLOW] bahala na [NORMAL] bahala na
Becky: Listeners, please repeat.
Jay: bahala na
[pause - 5 sec.]
Becky: Use this slang expression when you want to express you no longer mind whatever the outcome. In Philippine mythology, there is a god named Bathala. So when one says

Jay: [NORMAL] Bahala na kahit mabasted ako. Basta susubukan ko pa ring ligawan siya.

Becky: "it's okay/I can do it"
Becky: Your friend promised to pay you back today what he owes you. But you couldn’t contact him. You express in disgust:
Jay: badtrip
