And when she hates you, she may say, "Dili nako gusto nimo!" :D :D

 

I thought "Layas" is the proper term!? :)

Dili na ko gusto nimo literally means "I don't want you anymore./I don't like you anymore.

 

Layas means "Leave or go away!"

 

If you want to say "I hate you." you will say "Naglagot ko nimo." or "Gikalagutan ti ka." literal meaning "You are hated by me."

amaw man ka, kiat lang nang nawong mo! - These are not polite words.

 

Amaw, if said to someone familiar to you, can be translated as silly. In this context, the speaker used it to mean "stupid"

 

I am sure that you have read somewhere that "man" has no literal meaning at all. It is used to soften the tone of the speaker's voice or to emphasize what the speaker is saying. In this context, there is an air of irritation on the speaker's voice.

 

nawong means face

nang is short for kana'ng

mo is short for nimo, your

 

Kiat means being restlessly inattentive and jumping or running about.

 

Literal translation = You are stupid, your face keeps bouncing, jumping and running about!

 

ambot lang! ( I often hear this, when asking questions)

 

This is the expression to use when someone asks you about something and you don't know the answer.

 

Ambot lang! = I don't know!

 

nawong nimo lubot nako! = this is very rude and disparaging! This means that the listener is so ugly that her/his face looks like the butt of the speaker and should not be shown in public. It's not polite to tell someone these words.

 

nawong = face

nimo = your

lubot = butt

nako = my

 

Literal Translation = Your face is my butt.

I know what it means. I just posted that in jest.
