    It means regretful.

    Nanghihinayang ako. – I am regretful.

    There is a Tagalog song with that same title by Jeremiah.

    This is it’s lyrics for you to understand what nanghihinayang means…

    Nanghihinayang Regretful

    Nanghihinayang ang puso ko My heart is regretful

    Sa piling ko’y lumuha ka lang With me, all you knew was tears

    Nasaktan lamang kita I’ve only hurt you

    Hindi na sana I wish I hadn’t

    Hindi na sana iniwan pa I wish I hadn’t left

    Iniwan kang nag-iisa at nagdurusa Left you alone and in misery

    Ako sana’y patawarin na I am hoping you’ll forgive me…

    Nanghihinayang is a verb in progressive tense, which means regretting a wasted opportunity or regretting to grab the opportunity.

    exempli gratias:


    Ako ay nanghihinayang na hindi siya ang aking nakaisang-dibdib.

    English translation:

    I am regretting that she did not become my wife.


    Nanghihinayang talaga ako na hindi ako nakapunta sa piging kagabi dahil naroon ang aking matalik na kaibigan.

    English translation:

    I am really regretting that I did not come to the party last night because my best friend was there.
