“Baka Naman”

by Adrian Avilado Antazo

Beef Pares at Bistek Tagalog,
Pansit at Chicken Adobo.
Barbeque at Pritong Talong,
Inihaw ng Mang Inasal.

Lahat may sangkap na Toyo.
Malinamnam pag may Toyo.
Sumasarap pag may Toyo.
Kulang pag wala tong Toyo.

Parang relasyon lang nating dalawa,
Di kumpleto pag wala yung isa,
Ang buhay ko ay parang pagluluto,
ikaw naman yung minsan tinotoyo…

Ikaw yung Toyo.
You are like high-quality soy sauce delicately blended to perfection,
you guaranteed to provide that tamang-tamang timpla to each and every dish.

Just like Silver Swan Soy Sauce,
the #1 Soy Sauce in the Philippines.
Silver Swan?! Baka Naman?

Lanie Rose,
Ikaw ang kumukompleto ng buhay ko,
Ikaw ang sumuporta sa mga pangarap ko,
Ikaw ang umintindi sa mga pagkukulang ko,
Ikaw ang dumamay sa mga kalungkutan ko,
Ikaw ang gumabay sa mga desisyon ko.

You are my gift from God,
and the one I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Today, I take you to be my wife and my partner,
I promise you with God as our witness,
that I will be faithful to you and you alone,
I will be worthy of your trust and worthy of your love,
I will be your loving partner and will be the best husband to you,
and be the best father to our future children.

Ako ay nangangako na habambuhay ikaw ay ipagluluto,
basta ikaw ang mag huhugas sa mga ginamit ko sa pagluluto.
Ipagmamaneho kita kahit saan mo man gusto magpunta,
basta ikaw magbababayad ng ating pang gasolina,
ipagplaplantsa din kita at aking ipaglalaba,
Wag lang sabay dahil ako’y mapapasma.
Isang bagay lang ang hindi ko kaya gawin,
Ang mag sampay ng mga nilabahan natin,
Dahil mga kapitbahay baka ako ay makita,
At sabihin pa nila na ako ay under de saya.

I vow to support you with all of your aspiration,
I will help you build the family of your ambition,
I promise to reciprocate your love tenfold,
I promise to be with you until we are old,
I will be proud of you and tell the world that you are my wife,
I vow to love you forever and for the rest of my life.
