Istambay


Standby, originally uploaded by Litratista.

I remember this acronym when I was in high school.

ISTAMBAY.

I - ikaw
S - sila
T - tayo
A - ang
M - mga
B - batang
A - ayaw
Y - yumaman


Istambay is pinoy street slang for "Standby." Yan ang tawag sa mga walang trabaho.
Parang ako. Istambay muna and wait for further developments hehe!

Other acronyms for the unemployed are PAL (Palamunin), H.E. (Home Econanay) and of course, my personal favorite - PMA (Pahinga Muna, Anak.)

Tagal ko ng standby dito sa Switzerland. Pero feeling ko dami kong trabaho...pero walang sweldo. Parang "rest while you work." LOL.
