Correct you are, Rascala! I too have used it in this context. I suspect that even in the usage above, the notion of "winging it" is present. For instance, I think the uncle who purchased the "sweeties' winged it, having assembled an alag bulag collection of the same.

I disagree. It is more prominently used as an adverb for "Winging it"

Don't know macha, i just swung like alag bulag it went...
