Pangasinan poem, translated by Santiago Villafania

The love poem translated into Panganisan (Pangasinense), the main language of Pangasinan province (Luzon island). Sika so Pinabli" are the three words you will have to tell her! She's waiting for them! She's waiting for you! This important language of the Philippines is spoken by about 1.5 million people. Formerly it was written like the ilocano with the baybayin (alibata), I would have liked to show you my little poem in this form, unfortunately it is only in Latin letters.
