Bakit Hindi - Why Not Philippines

I am in the Philippines, and often they have this unusual way of answering...

They say,
"Why not?"

In reality they mean,
"Of course."
or,
Like why not, or course I will.

Interesting twist on the English language, I had a friend teach me how to say this in the native language of Tagalog. Pronounced:

Tah Gah Low

Or at least that is the way I hear it, nonetheless when I order something and a person says,
"Why not?"
I will in turn answer,
"Bakit Hinde"

Pronounced,
Bah Keet Hin Day

Why not the Philippines?
