It looks different when written as a sentence, it took me a while to read it closely to recognize it is in Baybayin, on my first look it looked like some other Asian characters.

So, ano yung nakasabi diyan? 'Di ko maintindihan. O_o

Ah. It's my variant of Baybayin written in a Japanese font style as to blend in to Japanese text when written with it. I basically wrote about two guys tussling over food in here.

Not all might understand what I wrote here, but I want to push the possibility of stories being written in Baybayin (Both in Traditional and the Variants) and not just short stories like what I have presented here, but Novels as well.
I think it would be good reading/writing practice; after all, I learned my English mostly from writing FanFiction. Why won't we learn from making stories in these scripts?
What do you guys think?
I believe it would promote literacy (to the variants used), cultural awareness, and pushing of Baybayin into mainstream media, as well as the interest of those who love looking at strange glyphs.

The Variant used is "Surat Bisaya" by ZUROCHA of the script "Baybayin".
For those who don't know what Baybayin is, it's the Philippines' very own native writing system with over a dozen live natural variants and hundreds of artificial ones. And,I belive, it's doing much better than it's Indonesian cousins.

Language used is Bisaya.

And I have a font availlable; tell me when you need a link to it.
