What are the things you are thankful about? Be it material, spiritual, people or anything at all, say it! Let the world know.
The word “Salamat” is the Filipino word for “Thank you.” It has variations all over the country, depending on the dialect, but it sounds similar and all has the same meaning.
For Muslims and Arab speakers, it may sound familiar because the root word of “salamat” comes from the Arabic spoken greeting “Salam Alaykum.” Salam means peace, and the statement as a whole can be translated to “peace be with you.”
Personally, I find it easier to say “salamat”. Somehow, it’s more meaningful than saying “thank you” even though they have the same meaning. I guess for me salamat has more weight when you say it to someone when you are thankful.
I’ve got tons of blogs that I rarely get to keep, but I hope to keep this one up as best as I can.
