'Susmaryosep! - Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
Patawad/Patawarin mo ako - Sorry/Pls. Forgive me.
Gusto kita - I like you
Mahal kita - I love you
Kinamumuhian kita - I hate you
Gutom na ako - I'm hungry.
Busog na ako - I'm full.
Gusto kong kumain ng Lechon. - I want to eat roast pig.
Ayokong kumain - I don't want to eat.
Paalam - goodbye
Pahiram ng libro/aklat mo. - May I borrow your book?
Paki-abot ng tinapay. - Pls. pass the bread.

I hope it added more to your collection. Paalam.
