Camotes Island: One of a Place

I had been in Camotes 3 times and I may say I had the best and worst experience in the island.  My first visit to Camotes was last June 2010.  I was with my housemates and Jireh’s mom and sis.  The experience was great except for the place where we stayed.  That was the only place which had vacant rooms (no wonder). All others resort were fully booked.

One of the best places were the Timobo Cave, Santiago and Mongodlong Resorts and the Lake Danao.

[Korean] I love you

당신을 사랑합니다  – Dangshin uhl saranghabnida means I love you
‘당신을’ can be omitted, since Koreans usually do not use the word ‘you.’

The following all mean “I love you” (without the ‘you’ pronoun) and are listed in order of decreasing formality.

사랑합니다   –     saranghabnida ( modest form for I love you)
사랑해요       –     saranghaeyo (general form for I love you in Korean)
사랑해           –     saranghae (used most often to boyfriends, girlfriends and such)


[Japanese] I love you very much

Watashi wa anata ga totemo suki desu.  (私はとてもあなたを愛して)

watashi means I
anata means you.
totemo means very or very much.
suki means love or like.
As to desu, there is no English equivalent. Just formal form to add the end of sentence.

wa and ga are particles.
wa indicates that the phrase before it is a subject.
ga indicates that the phrase before it is an object.
totemo totemo‘ just emphasizes totemo itself.

The meaning is,  I love you veeery much.

✿✿✿Additional points to ponder✿✿✿

“love” is “ai (愛)
“to love” is “aisuru (愛する)

I love you can be literally translated as,

aishite imasu (愛しています)
aishiteru (愛してる)
aishiteru yo (愛してるよ)
aishiteru wa (愛してるわ

However, the Japanese don’t say “I love you” as often as Western people do, because of cultural differences.   When they put their feelings into words, it is preferred to use the phrase “suki desu (好きです)”. It literally means, “to like.” “Suki da (好きだ),” “suki dayo” (好きだよ, male speech) or “suki yo (好きよ, female speech)”
