@AklayPakau Parang awa mo na and Para mo nang awa .... grammatically, it is related to the rules of ligature - Na or NG - ligature generally precedes Verb, adj and noun but it cannot precede a pronoun; hence, PARA + lig + Noun + mo na and PARA + pronoun + na + lig + Noun. Here is a similar and simpler expression: Parang kapatid mo na and Para mo nang kapatid.... hope this helps

You can say para mo ng awa or rearrange it by saying
Parang awa mo na
...get the "ng" and connect this from "para" so it will become "parang"
