Tagalog term or phrase: andito nako sa school sabi ko kay papa ok na ako pero hindi pa rin pala.
A friend from school e-mailed me. I don't know Tagalog as well as I should, so I can't quite translate this.

English translation:I am now here at school. I told papa I am already OK but it turns out I'm not yet (OK) after all
Explanation:
Hi. The direct translation of your phrase would be: "I am now here at school I told papa I am OK already but not yet after all"

Smoothening out a few grammar and punctuation would give you the final message:

"I am now here at school. I told papa I am already OK but it turns out I'm not yet (OK) after all"

Please refer to the word-per-word translation:

andito = "here"

nako (sic) na ako = I am

sa school = at school

sabi ko kay (papa) = I told (papa)

ok na ako = I'm OK already

pero hindi pala = but not

pa rin = yet

pala= after all



Hope this helps :-)
