Never said it was like Hanunoo at all :). I said in my original email:
"Because i dont have any extensive Saalangal words, i used a Hanunoo
ambahan - lullaby, because it shows the script off fairly well."
In fact, the current discussion about Kuraw, we've been discussing that it
looks a lot like Burmese, or similar to south Indian scripts ;). But, it's
different enough from any of the scripts that inspired it, that it's not
exactly like them.
