Ma ini an orihi.. Higogmaon ko ikaw

A small translation into waray-waray (winaray, samaran, samareño, samaron, samarnyo, samar-Leyte, leyteño, leytean, haray), for just over three million people. The waray, or winaray, is a bisaya language of the Philippines. It is spoken in the regions of Samar, Biliran and Leyte. If this language has a significant number of speakers, it is mainly Tagalog that is found in the newspapers or books of the regions where it is spoken, because many waray-language authors choose to write in Tagalog.
Samar is a large island in the Philippines, always wild is quite poor. It has all the assets, with its paradisiacal landscapes, to become a first order tourist destination.

She remembers the slightest detail and the lightning that hit her the day his eyes crossed her. She was unable to say something, and him, who seemed seized in his thoughts, just did the cross a look.
