My Mexican friend gave me a medal with a phrase on the back. It has an angel on the front. She told me what it meant but I forget. I live in Canada and she came here during Christmas. I would like to know what it means. I suck at Spanish....I am sorry...lol
The phrase is "Porfis Ayúdame a portame bien". Can anyone translate this? Thanks for the help.

"Please, help me to behave". Porfis is slang for "por favor", meaning "please".

Porfis Ayúdame a portame bien.....searched another website by copying and pasting your question. Since your friend was from Mexico, it doesn't necessarily mean that the words were "true Spanish". There are several "dialects" of the spanish language....."a" = to......."portame" = 'me......."bien" = good. that's about as much as i can remember from spanish from over 30+ years ago. again, the dialects are similar, but yet different. hope this helps you a little.
