Hello there guest
! I'll try to answer your queries, but I think one or two are not really idioms, just very old Tagalog phrases
Ahas na tulog
- it means a person who is quiet but is a traitor
- it means a person (in most cases referring to a woman) who is dainty and with just a little carelessness or negligence might be ruined. I think, the ruination here pertains to the loss of virtue or reputation, or anything along that line
Kinain ng laho
- Laho, I think means eclipse... so, I think this means a disappearing act, or something went missing and its whereabouts is unexplainable.
Laman ng lansangan
- a person who is always on the streets or a person who considers the streets his home.
Lawit ng pusod
- means the umbilical vein
