I asked a lady yesterday if she could take some fresh vegetables I was given and make a dish for me.  I asked her to sprinkle some salt and garlic powder on it when she was done cooking it.

She said to me, "Pinelo'-ko na chaot-mo i asiga." ("I thought salt was bad for you.")

I replied, "Hunggan, lao masea diddide'." ("Yes, but even just a little.")

She said, with a smile, "O, bai takpånge ha'." ("Oh, I'll just baptize it.")

When a baby is baptized, just a little water is poured three times on his or her head.  Funny lady.
