Malakas
Malakas is a Greek slang word. Malakas is an exceptionally versatile word. The meaning varies depending on the tone and context used. It can be an exclamation of pleasure, an expression of dark horror, a cry of anger, a paean of affection, and other different things besides its literal equivalent, which in British English is "wanker". Common alternative meanings include "asshole" or "jerk", and the contrasting "dude", or "mate", depending on the context. It derives from the Greek word malakos , which means "soft" or "spoilt, well-used to luxuries of life". It is one of the most frequent words picked up by tourists and travellers to Greece and is not unusual amongst the younger Greek diaspora, even when the level of Greek is low. A female form of the word exists, malako , but is a recent coinage, whereas malakismeni seems to be rather more vintage.

Malakas
[Other] The Philippine myth of how the world was first populated by humans. It is said that after the world was created, a bird with a sharp beak and highly ornate feathers sought a place to rest and eat after flying for several days. Looking down at the vast ocean below him, he spots a small formation that seemed to be a cluster of pearls (the Philippine islands). Not desiring to fly any further, he lands and finds himself perched on a giant bamboo shoot. Curious as to what was inside, he proceeded to peck at the top end of the large plant. After several attempts, the shoot finally splits in the middle and with amazement he finds himself looking at the first man (malakas) and woman (maganda) tucked inside the hollows of the bamboo halves.
