New Tagalog Word: Palpak

Posted on July 24, 2010 by under Tagalog.    

The Tagalog word I want to teach you all today is palpak. The English translation is poorly done or sloppy work. In other words: FAIL!

I thought of palpak today when I put on a new skort that I got from Ann Taylor LOFT. I’ve been a 6 in their clothes for a long time. So while Brian was in Germany, I figured I needed some summer clothes so I ordered a few things from their web site. I’m a sucker for a good sale.

Anyway, I put on this brand new skort this morning and it’s freakin’ falling off of me. Brian and I are thinking it’s about two inches too big. I could probably drop down a size next time I buy clothes from there. So that’s the good news. The bad news is that I bought two of these things: one in brown and one in black. Ay, palpak!

Brian told me to return them. I don’t think I can, though, because they were on sale. Plus, since we don’t have an Ann Taylor LOFT store in town, I’d have to mail it back and I’d rather not go through that hassle. For now, the plan is to wash the skorts in hot and dry them in super hot and hope they shrink. If that doesn’t work, then I’m going to see about getting them altered.

Yes, I think palpak is a suitable word of the day.
