Question: what does "baka mawili ka e." mean?
I think its "perhaps im interested in you" but i'm not entirely convinced that's correct. Thanks!

@jkos hmm ok, thanks.
 
for clarity, this is the whole thing she said.
 
"O sya, tulog na muna ako. Baka mawili ka e. haha"
 
translating this is harder than i wish i was lol. even with a dictionary and online resources.. so much to learn..

Ok turns out, "perhaps im fond of you" was actually correct. :D

@AtomizerZero That doesn't really make sense based on what you typed tho, to me. Should have probably been "mawili kita' if that was it. Maybe it was a typo for mawala, "maybe you (will) disappear" (while shes asleep). Mawili ka = is YOU are fond of something, not her.
 
If she told you this her self maybe she just told you what you want to hear haha.
 
Anyhow I'm not expert, I'm probably wrong, look forward to a native chiming in.

@AtomizerZero
I’m not sure that’s exactly correct from a technical translation standpoint...”wili” can also sometimes have a flavor of being addicted...ex: “I’m going to bed for now. Perhaps you’re addicted (to this chatting), haha.”

@AtomizerZero haha, she probably didn't fully understand what you asked her, and just confirmed it instead of saying what do u mean? Don't worry this is common haha.

Hi this is my translation of
"O sya, tulog na muna ako. Baka mawili ka e. haha"
"Ok enough, i will sleep. Maybe you will "ask for more"(addictive). Haha"

@AtomizerZero "Baka mawili ka" literally means "You might get used to (it)"
