Kunwari vs Kumbaga
 
I always get these two words mixed up. Could someone share some usage examples and any mnemonic tricks? Salamat.

Hm. My 2c. Kunwari is used more like the word "pretend", either literally, or in the sense of making hypotheticals. Kumbaga is more for making simile statements. I'll leave usage examples up to the natives.

Kunwari is "pretend" (as in pretend that you live in Mars), kungbaga/kumbaga is "in other words..." Or "in another example..."
