So you've been busy in your house.
For example, my friend tells me that she has been busy cleaning, cooking etc.
To recapitulate, I might say, "So you've been busy in your house."
How can I say this sentence in Tagalog? I'm particularly interested in the "So...".
Best Wishes

@seitt Oo ako rin. Nagtatrabaho ako sa kusina ko. May malaking bundok ng platito at tasa ... pero sa halip ng maglilinis mas gusto kong makipagtagalog nandito!

PLEASe note that tagalog speakers (especially the young ones) use the english "so" a lot in their sentences. Many tagalog sentences cannot sound natural without the english words. In fact, tagalog people can no longer say sorry or goodbye in Tagalog after being occupied by USA a hundred years ago. fee free to use So to begin your tagalog sentences.
(another note: nobody says LUBHANG MALIKHAIN in Metro Manila. It is a very deep poetic phrase, only used in very old poems. I suggest you say ANG GALENG! (great!)

@seitt I think it's galing. I search 'galeng' on the dictionary, and nothing came up. Not even another spelling option for 'galing'. But I might be wrong, not sure.

Eh, 'di abalang-abala ka sa bahay mo!
Option 2.
Eh, 'di ang dami mong pinagkaabalahan sa bahay mo.

@seitt Sometimes natives swap I for E and Vice versa . But yes the correct spelling is “galíng”.

@seitt Standard tagalog would have galing. Southern tagalog allows for i/e and u/o allophony in closed syllables (syllables that end in a consonant), standard tagalog has i/e/ and u/o allophony, but in open syllables.

@seitt from the context given, you would say: Masyado ka palang busy sa bahay ninyo. The particle pala means Oh, so.... to recapitulate something. Masyado emphasizes too much like too much work from the example. Ninyo is used in sa bahay ninyo to state that it's a shared house which is typical in a Filipino set up.
