Phew! That was quite an exercise..

I must say I had to pause quite a number of times to compose my thoughts and to find the right word as I attempted to write in the native tongue.  Phew! 

I am mighty proud of what I’ve written because although certain portions felt like I could have written it better if my Tagalog writing was not that rusty, I actually composed a whole blog post in formal Tagalog.  (Forget that it took me the whole day to write it!)
