Based on a Philippine word Tanchahin meaning doing something that involves precise amounts, measurements, and knowledge. But, since the person doing the act is not equipped with proper tools or not skilled, the person just relies on gut feel, very rough estimates, or any other things that cannot be classified as a proper measurment basis.
I want to bake an apple pie but I can't find my measuring cups. I'll just have to tanch it.
