Samahang Parokyalista

July 31st, 2009 No comments
Our beloved Director Rev. Monsignor Jaime M. San Andres (+), our Principal Mrs. Flavel C. Favoreal, our charming Assistant Principal Mrs. Carmen C. Ojeda (+), friends, guests, my fellow Parochialites, a pleasant goooood morning!

(Customary Applause)

Little did we know that that little speech many Parochialites recited in front of the student body whenever there was a program (Linggo ng Wika, National Book Week, Science, Math Week, you name it) was grammatically incorrect. Pleasant na good pa, sain ka pa! What made it more egregious was our stupidity to clap at it every time we heard the rhythmically enunciated goo- (rising) --oood (falling) morning!

Reminiscing those hot old days in the quadrangle waiting for the programs to consume two subjects so that it will be recess time again is a warm fuzzy feeling. I can still remember the taste of loglog at the canteen, the feeling of sweat on the daily after school aragawan base, or the stack of tex hiding under my desk.

Connecting with most of these elementary classmates is both a weird and exciting experience. See, most people I met in elementary rarely became my close friends. They are few and far between. Maybe because I was a timid and shy boy back then, or due to the fact that I couldn't participate in sports up until my 3rd grade due to a broken leg, or mainly because of the unfortunate circumstance that I was an altar boy and a commentator . Come to think of it, even my high school buddies turned Mr. Bogus when we parted ways. Maybe, it is just me.

It is fun to reminisce and remind ourselves that we were once little innocent boys oblivious to this world full of commercialism, pressures, and grammatical imperfections.

Anakbayan

Damn right it feels good to be an activist. You get to wave placards, shout invectives until your voice box falters, raise you fists and sing in unison.

It has been almost 1 and a half months and still our Board President is hell bent on not signing any checks. An office mate passed away without receiving his funeral benefits from the office, or the contributions from his co-workers. Another one whose wife gave birth did not get the incentives due to him.

Back to the rally. Truth be told, I enjoyed it. We bonded as office mates and showed our full united force. In fact, it felt like going back to Parochial days when we strutted our streets for the Intrams. Spectators were many, we caused traffic which is rare in the city, and we carried torches like witch hunters.

The only down point was when we were in Plaza Quinse Martirez, a couple of the professional bums were uneasy when we were approaching the late hours. Probably because we were occupying their bed space. Good thing we were able to appease most of them with free goto and mais. A good experience over-all.

Huwag matakot, makibaka! Ibagsak ang imperyalismo!

A Demented Mental State

I heard one say that the SONA ought to be delivered in Filipino, particularly in these dire times when all we can afford is a bad joke. For the most part, it stands for good reason. You want to tell...

Camanungdanan can SONA sa mga Bicolanos

July 28th, 2009 No comments


Kasuogma, iprenesenta ni GMA an "State of the Nation" sa Congreso asin publico. Ini an huring SONA pagcatapos nin walong taon na nasa puesto bilang presidente. Arog can inaasahan, ibinandera ni GMA an mga maray na nangyari sa nacion sa huna nia na cagibuhan nia. Puede man na tawan ta sia nin credito para jan. Sige na logod.

Bilang Bicolano, ano man an camanungdanan sako can SONA ni GMA? Garo baga dae man lang nanambitan an Bicol. Lalong nagpararom can sakong kutob na dae importante an sakong region sa nacional level. Haloy na ining mato-mato can mga nakaerenot pang Bicolanong critico can clarong capabayaan can gobierno nacional sa Bicol. Kaya dae masakit isipon na an Bicol saro sa mga grabeng nagtitios na lugar sa nacion.

Aber, puede man magmencionar nin mayor na proyecto nacional digdi sa Bicol? Sige daw..

Siring can dati, kaipuhan tang magpursige sa paagi can satong sadiring ganot, kamot asin diskarte para mabuhay nin desente. Arog man can caaraman can haros kagabsan, mayo kitang maasahan sa gobierno nacional - alagad pamumulitica.

harani na pati an elecion. Tabi man, tawan tang dignidad an satong decision. Pilion ta man tabi idtong magdadara can boses ta asin macacaibahan ta sa paghorna nin Bicolnon na pagmangno asin pag-iisip. Bako idtong nagsasagin-sagin na Bicolano.

Got the dogtags…finally

July 28th, 2009 No comments
Yup, I got the tags and they are great. About 400 bucks - but it's for charity, so money well spent, right.
I remember the little booths in Manila for WorldVision they were seriously looking out for donors. It's "workable" just around 300 per month, but I opted to support them in another less "workable" manner.
The proceeds suppose to go to charity GK, World Vision to name a few. You know what just go their site for the details.
For the dogtags, the "premium" edition has a better build and feel than the regular one - but it doesn't matter, it's all for a good cause. Dogtags are dogtags - right.
Got ours at Cafe Mary Grace in Manila cause the Mail & More distributor in Naga sucks (I've been there a couple of times and all they said each time was the shipment hasn't arrived - weird cause one of their staff is wearing one)
Oh well time to work my magic and make the dogtag the item to be seen.

P.S. Already got inquiries the first hour we wore it, so we're off to a freakin good start. Next step, bargain with the organizers for own billboard! Call us Angel!
