as i was fixing myself yesterday, my 5y.o cousin asked me this:
"ayan na si kaka, bumubuka - bukaka."
then she said, "manang, ano to bi ang sabat?" i pretended that i don't know the answer, then she said it like a winner, "GUNTING!"
and it all came to my senses! bugtong, riddle, paktakon, whatever you may call it is a game that one would not miss during his childhood. i remember how proud i am when i was in my elementary years whenever no one could guess the answers to my bugtong. and it also feels great whenever i could answer my classmate's riddles.
now, why am i writing this???
this thread is for everyone! a tribute for being a Filipino! bugtong has been a part of our culture.. so why not play it here?!
unahan ko, sabton mo!!
Bugtong: "isang prinsesa, nakaupo sa tasa."
