Asatiga anaga Pinoya = Astig ang Pinoy?


Came across the launch of Wika Clothing by Philippine rapper, D-coy. One of the shirts has Baybayin with the following characters:

Looks like it’s supposed to say “Astig ang Pinoy” (Pinoys are cool/hard/awesome). If so, it’s incorrect because there are no cancellation kudlits after the Sa, Ga, Ya and the Na-Ga should be the Ng.

Here’s how it should look like using my iPhone Baybayin Translator app in modified:

Here it is in traditional but notice that Astig can be mistaken for Ate without context
