look at this ang el

I need more half Filipino yams and I haven’t seen a lot of it then someone mentioned it on @tsukkiyamaheadcanons and I just needed to do this

- Yams’ mom is Filipino and his dad is Japanese

- When Yama speaks Filipino he sounds really different from when he speaks Japanese. He’s more expressive, and to some extent, kind of agressive? He’s more comfortable cursing but the cursing is so abundant (I’m very much like this. You know that thing in stories and bilingual characters suddenly switch languages in a conversation like its something they can’t control? Total bullshit. I forget that I’m bilingual, too, because I’m around people who also speak both English and Filipino but yeah. That doesn’t happen)

- Sometimes it’s just easier to speak in Filipino to express how pissed off he is

- “Putangina — wag ka nga, nakakaasar…ay, gago, ano bang klaseng buhay to, umayos ka nga, punyeta…” He learned those from his mom who thought he couldn’t hear her with the door closed

- Tsukki can’t understand what he’s saying but from the way Yama spits out the words he’s definitely cursing

- Yama does the thing when you hold the back of your parents’ hand and touch it to your forehead when they come home; you also do it with your grandparents or aunts and uncles, or friends of your parents. It’s called mano, and sometimes you say “mano po” or “bless” when you do it

- I’m just wondering if Yams was baptized Catholic and raised Catholic or?? Maybe Muslim. The possible religions his mother could be,

- Super biased but his mom is from Mindoro

- (It’s where I’m from)

- He’s never really visited his relatives from his mother’s side, but they’ve spoken over the phone and he’s seen pictures and heard stories from his mom

- I hc that Tsukki is one of those ppl that very casually joke about wanting to die and I imagine yams is the same its just that he says them in Tagalog under his breath: “Lord kunin niyo na po ako,” “Ayaw ko nang mabuhay,” “Patulugin niyo na ako habang buhay please,” he learned those from nihilistic Internet friends from the Philippines

- (Do some of you who understand relate or are laughing rn??)

- He’s probs hummin or singing some angsty love songs (he be singin some Ang Huling El Bimbo by Eraserheads and I’m weeping don’t look at me)

- He sings Ang Huling El Bimbo while he’s walking home with Tsukki who doesn’t understand but likes to listen because Yams has a nice voice and Yams just starts crying and he’s like “What’s wrong??” And Yams just wipes his tears and reaches out for Tsukki’s hand and he’s like, “Nothing, I just want to hold your hand,”

- (If you know the song this is AAAAAAAAAAAH)

- Please also consider: Tadhana by Up Dharma Down, Kailan by Yeng Constantino, and Migraine by Moonstar88

- He sings a lot at home with his mom, and sometimes his dad; someone just breaks into song and the other starts joining in and they belt out the end even if they can’t reach the high notes (I’m just speaking from experience; there is even a karaoke machine at my grandma’s house

- He loves?? Talking shit when no one can understand him?? It’s Marvelous,

- It’s funny when no one can understand him but it’s also very lonely

- Saying “I don’t care” sounds better for me when I say it in Tagalog; “wala akong pakialam.”
