Word-High July: Round-Up

Thank you so much Rosema of A Reading Writer and Maria of Doodles and Scribbles for creating Word-High July: 30 Beautiful Filipino Words, it made my writing in July even better. I loved learning all these new and beautiful Filipino Words and the culture that goes with them and creating content based on them. It was very challenging at some pints I have to be honest but I pushed through and have finally finished all of them even if I’m a bit late to the party. So here are all 30 of my Word-High July posts with their definitions. Most of these are poems so if you like poems here you go:
