    Is there an equivalent to this phrase in tagalog?
    What I would to say it's something like: it depends on you or it's your decission. So if someone can teach me, I will appreciate it so much.
    Thanks...
     
  2. You can say "Bahala ka."

    You can also use the term "nasa sa'yo", it's like saying it's up to you.

    Ok, thanks so much to you both. :)
    Would you say one term is less formal than the other?

    "bahala ka" may seem to sound a bit rude. "nasa sa'yo" is more formal or "ikaw ang bahala" may sound better to the one who will hear it.

    I agree that.. BAHALA KA is informal..

    It's better if you would say.. NASA SA'YO/ NASA SA IYO

    or NASA SA IYO ANG DESISYON

    :arrow:DEPENDE SA IYO/DESISYON MO YAN

    I think this woulD be the exact translation of:arrow: it depends on you / it's your decission

    I totally agree with her...

    ..

    you can also use this...

    but if you are going to translate it..

    it depends on you - depende sayo
    it's your decision - desisyon mo yan
