my week at a glance

before my recent post, i was supposed to post my opinion about the goings-on in our country. but then, i read about ionaks' reaction to jawbreaker's blog entry and i just couldn't send it out. i'm sure a lot of you have read about it or received an email about their passionate opinions about our government, officials, and the rest of the bunch. so now i'm thinking, Sayang naman nasulat ko.

ah well. what the heck. i'm still including the draft i wrote about my take on our country's current situation....

Tama Na, Sobra Na, Magbago Na!


ANO BA?!?!? nakaka-buwiset na talaga!

napanood ko sa TV yung rally kahapon. as usual, andun nanaman ang mga politiko, mga cause-oriented groups, mga mamamayang naghahanap ng madaling pagkakakitaan, at shempre, ang mga dakilang usisero/usisera.

alam nyo, nagmumukha nang pamilyar tong eksenang to ha.

presidenteng corrupt na nasangkot sa isang skandalo. mga Cabinet members at iba pang politikong nag-resign (may nagwalk-out na ba?). mga mamamayang nagalit at sumisigaw ng "____ Resign!" (fill-in-the-blank). mga studyanteng hindi pumasok sa klase nila para mag-rally sa kalsada. welga dito, welga don. impeachment, anyone?? or how bout a little coup d'├ętat?? at wag nating kalimutan ang kapangyarihan ng People Power...hm. pang-ilang EDSA rally na ba to? EDSA quatro na nga ba?

mga pare, bumenta na yan!

hindi ako pro-GMA (ni hindi ko nga siya binoto e) pero hindi na ko sang-ayon sa pagresign nya. bakit, kamo? sige nga. sino ang papalit sa kanya? (utang na loob, walang sisigaw ng, "SUSAN ROCES!" o makakatikim kayo ng matinding whallop!) o, wag nang magbanggit ng pangalan at baka sumakit pa lalo ulo ko...

mga kapatid, ganon nalang ba tayo lagi? tuwing may nakikita tayong mali sa mga lider natin, kelangan nang palitan. ilang beses na natin nagawa yan a. may nangyari ba??

bakit, nakasisiguro ba tayong yung susunod na pangulo natin ay hindi magiging corrupt? hindi mandadaya sa eleksyon o kung san mang proyekto ng gobyerno? hindi iwawaldas yung pera ng mga mamamayan?

yang mga Opposition na yan....sino ba ang hindi kurakot dyan, aber? sinasabi nila na wala silang hidden agenta. sus, kalokohan!!

naiirita na ko kasi nakakasawa na e. nanggaling na tayo dito at hindi ito ang solusyon!!

imbes na patalsikin ang pangulo, ba't di nalang natin bigyan ng pagkakataong ituwid ang pagkakamali nya? ang dami pang ibang mas importanteng problema sa Pilipinas. dapat yun na muna iatupag natin.

ano ba napapala ng pagrarally? bagsak nanaman ang peso. bagsak ang ekonomiya. at higit sa lahat, nababawasan (nanaman) ang respeto sa mga Pinoy!

totoo, isang milagro ang naunang People Power. mga dude, di na natin mauulit yan. kahit ilang sandwich pa ang iabot natin sa mga sundalo, kahit ilang beses tayo humarang sa mga pulis o humiga sa kalsada sa harapan ng mga army vehicles...wala na yung madyik.

we can never replicate the camaraderie, the heart-felt emotions and compassion, and the power of the very first People Power Revolution.

kaya wag nang pilitin.

ume-epal lang naman ang karamihan dyan e. pwede ba, gawin nyo lang trabaho nyo.

imbes na magturuan tayo, ba't di natin tignan sarili natin. oo, baduy sya. oo, gasgas na tong kasabihan na to. at oo, mahirap syang gawin. pero yun ang kelangan natin e.

we need to bring back the integrity, honesty, dignity, and the heart to serve our country and more importantly, our fellow countrymen. it's not about the fame. the popularity. the money. masyado nang maraming sakim sa mundo. wag na nating dagdagan pa!

kaya di na natin masisisi kung bakit ang daming gustong mag-migrate sa ibang bansa. nakakalungkot naman talaga sitwasyon natin dito e.

pero, alam nyo...kahit naman saang sulok ng mundo tayo pumunta, Pilipino pa rin tayo.


let's bring back the pride of being a Filipino people.

bow.

Estudyante Blues

nakakatawa talaga yung teacher namin sa Masters class ko every Saturday.

yesterday was our Mid-Term exam. now, we're all working students. but this does not stop us from acting like high school delinquents (hahaha!). in true teenager fashion, we exerted all our efforts on talking our way out of the exam. but, of course, it didn't work. the exchanges during the whole negotiations really cracked me up (which was a good thing. i was so sleepy that time and i needed something to wake me up.).

professor: You know class, this is the first time I'm giving a mid-term exam!
student A: Sir, wag nalang tayo mag-exam!
student B: Oo nga, Sir!
student C: Sir, open notes nalang!
professor: Nako, wag kayo kabahan. Madali lang to, pramis. Siguradong makakasagot pa rin kayo.
student A: Kahit di open notes?
student D: Kahit di kami nag-aral?
professor: Oo!
student B: Kahit di kami pumapasok?
professor: Oo nga e!
student A: Kahit di kami enrolled?

(hahaha!)

professor: Class, don't confuse achievement with effort.
student E: Sir, effort should always be rewarded!

(short pause)

professor: Kay Lord, may reward.

see, how can i be sleepy in this class??? ^^

shempre, tuloy ang mid-term exam. hhmm? how was the exam, you ask? well, i have a general rule: never talk about anything about the exam after taking it. so there. :p

Touch the Color...

for the second time in my life, i attended the 9 AM mass at our (Taytay) church. i usually go to the 7 PM mass with my family but i had so many stuff to do so i wanted to have a head start. anyways, since the church is just a short ride from my house, i decided to ride the jeepney instead of a tricycle (cost-cutting ^^).

on my way there, i noticed something about the houses and other buildings in my town...for some reason, a lot of families and businessmen decided to paint their homes or offices in a combination of pastel or bright colors. it was like driving around Dr. Seuss' world. either idol ng mayor namin si Bayani Fernando or he just likes having that pastel-motif thing going on. well, whatever his reason may be, i like it! seeing all the colors makes you feel refreshed and the journey less stressful. bravo to our mayor!

hm. i wonder if he's planning to bring that theme to our street.... ^_^
