Mang- verbs are second tier AF verbs. Verb affixes that end in ng, of which mang- is the most common by far, have a tendency to morph when they attach themselves with certain roots. There are so many rules for this that they are not worth memorizing, but the result is that mang- verbs often look like ma- verbs. The ng often changes into either m or n, and may or may not replace the first letter of the root.
Ex: mang + bili = mamili
Ex: mang + nood = manood
Ex: mang + pasyal = mamasyal
Despite all the morphing, all aspects can be derived from the infinitive, so memorizing the infinitive is enough.
