HAYOP NA YAN!!!

WHEN I WAS I KID, PINANGARAP KONG PUMUNTA NG ZOO. LAGI KO NOON KINUKULIT ANG NANAY AT TATAY KO NA PUMUNTA SA ZOO SA TUWING SASAPIT ANG BAKASYON. KASO SA TUWING KUKULITIN KO SILA, (AT NAGPAPAKULIT NAMAN), LAGI NILANG SINASABI SA AKIN NA "DYAN KA NA LANG SA LIKOD BAHAY PUMUNTA O DI KAYA SA MAY KAKAHUYAN, KASE LAHAT NG MAKIKITA MO DYAN AY MERON SA ZOO". DAHIL NGA SA MEDYO HIRAP KAMI SA BUHAY, WALA NA AKONG NAGAWA KUNDI TINGNAN ANG MGA MANOK, BAKA, KALABAW AT KAMBING SA BAKURAN AT IMADYININ NA GIRAFFE(gi-ra-pe, ang basa namin dati), TIGER, LION AT ELEPHANT ANG IBA SA KANILA.

LUMIPAS ANG MARAMING TAON, HANGGANG SA MAG-HIGH SCHOOL AT MAKATAPOS NG COLLEGE HINDI KO NARATING ANG LINTEK NA ZOO NA YAN. AT NUNG BAGO AKO TUMULAK PARA MANGIBANG BAYAN, IPINANGAKO KO SA SARILI KO NA PUMUNTA DUN. SUBALIT DATAPWAT DAHIL SA BILIS NG PANGYAYARI AT EKSAYTMENT NA RIN TUNGKOL SA AKING PAKIKIPAGSAPALARAN SA IBANG BANSA, NAWAGLIT SA AKING ISIPAN ANG PLANONG PAGPUNTA NG ZOO.

LUMIPAS MULI ANG ILANG TAON. NANLAGAS AT MULING NAGKADAHON ANG MGA PUNO NG HIGERA(YUNG PINAGTALIAN KAY FLORANTE SA FLORANTE AT LAURA) HINDI KO NARATING O NAPUNTAHAN MAN LAMANG ANG MAILAP NA ZOO NA YAN. DALA NA RIN SIGURO NG SOBRANG KABUSYHAN AT PAGPAPAYAMAN (DAW?) HINDI NA MULING SUMAGI PA SA AKING ALAALA ANG MAGPUNTA SA ZOO. AT KAHIT NUNG LUMIPAT AKO NG KUMPANYANG PAGTATRABAHUHAN NOONG 2007 HINDI KO NA NAISIPAN PANG PUMASYAL PA SA NASABING POOK PASYALAN.

AT NOONG 2010, BAGO AKO UMUWI SA LUPANG SINILANGAN, SA WAKAS NARANASAN KO RIN ANG MAKAPUNTA SA ZOO, SA TULONG NA RIN NG ISANG KAIBIGAN. AT SA SOBRANG HEKSAYTMENT NAKALIMUTAN KO ANG MAGDALA NG CAMERA BUTI NA LANG AT MAY CAMERA SI FRIENDSHIP. DOON NAKITA KO RIN ANG DATI AY SA ISIPAN AT LIBRO KO LANG NAKIKITA AT KINUKULAYAN LANG NAMIN NG PINK ANG TIGER, YELLOW ANG LION, ORANGE ANG GIRAFFE, GREEN ANG ELEPHANT AT IBA PA. HABANG PINAGMAMASDAN KO ANG MGA HAYOP NA NASA LOOB NG HAWLA BIGLA AKONG NALUNGKOT AT NAISIP NA HALOS WALANG PINAGKAIBA ANG MGA MABABANGIS NA HAYOP NA NAKAKAKULONG SA LOOB AT ANG MGA TAONG NASA LABAS NA PATULOY NA GUMAGAWA NG PANLALAMANG AT KABUKTUTAN SA KAPWA...

NEWS HOPPING
If reading and visiting blogs from other blogger is called "blog hopping", i must say that reading news online from different newspaper, is a "news hopping". Well, nowadays, Japan's twin disaster/calamities is still on the top news, following the heightening crisis of Libya & the heating government issues of Bahrain. Meanwhile from local news, topping of it, is the side by side prediction & paranoia of some on a possible earthquake in the Philippines & how to prepare in this act of nature. Followed by, the back-to-back fire that almost we have every week. And completing the news on the daily paper are the unending issues of killing, man shot dead, car accidents, house robbed, & the 'tirahan' among the members of the government. Nakakasawa. Nakakainis. Nakakabuwisit. Buti na lang there are some newspapers having sections and subcategories that make you smile a bit, like the one that I found on Pilipino Star Ngayon, they have this "True Confessions", its a 'subaybayan' story of i dont know, if love or sex, maybe? Now they have 'TAKAW' as their latest episode (ganda di ba?). And when I jumped in to Journal Online, and while scanning the news on their homepage, this one on the entertainment section caught my attention...


ANNA DIZON IS BACK!

Natawa akong bigla ng ganito T_______T, sabay tanong, "Who is Anna Dizon?"

Ikaw?.

Who is Anna Dizon?.

LOL.



p.s. walang pong personalan para lahat masaya. (^_^)



LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST

One never knows what tomorrow will bring.
So live life to the fullest today.
Enjoy the treasures that God has given
And never give in to dismay.

Don't let the dark clouds get you down
Be happy & carefree in mind.
Each cloud has silver lining
That each of you must find.

Always look for the good in others
And life will be happier for you.
Goodness & love will always make
Dark skies seem brighter and blue.

Love each other as God had loved you
And peace will be yours to share.
Know that whatever tomorrow brings
Will find you safe in God's care


THE H1N1... Ang Pagbabalik
I was shocked this morning when I heard the news of my friend that one of the members of our church & 3 of her room mates had a H1N1 virus. And they are quarantined since yesterday sa Pluto. Natakot ako, kasi kala ko di na uso yun. Sa dami ba ng problema at crisis na nagaganap, hindi ko na lubos maisingit pang isipin na gumagala-gala pa pala yang H1N1 na yan at naghahanap ng mabibiktima. Well, anu nga ba ang H1N1?

According to CDC (center for disease control & prevention) of America, yes, the one mentioned in The Walking Dead series. H1N1 is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This virus is spreading from person-to-person worldwide, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread. It is also called sometimes as "swine flu" because some of the genes of the virus is the same with the influenza viruses that are normally occurs on pig.


Here are some questions normally asked regarding this virus infection.

Is the 2009 H1N1 virus contagious?

The 2009 H1N1 virus is contagious and is spreading from human to human. Spread of the 2009 H1N1 virus is thought to occur in the same way that seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing, sneezing or talking by people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something – such as a surface or object – with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

What are the signs and symptoms of this virus in people?

The symptoms of 2009 H1N1 flu virus in people include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea. People may be infected with the flu, including 2009 H1N1 and have respiratory symptoms without a fever. Severe illnesses and deaths have occurred as a result of illness associated with this virus.

What can I do to protect myself from getting sick?

This season, there is a seasonal flu vaccine to protect against seasonal flu viruses and a 2009 H1N1 vaccine to protect against the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus (sometimes called “swine flu”). A flu vaccine is by far the most important step in protecting against flu infection. For information about the 2009 H1N1 vaccines, visit H1N1 Flu Vaccination Resources. For information about seasonal influenza vaccines, visit Preventing Seasonal Flu With Vaccination.

There are also everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses like the flu.

Take these everyday steps to protect your health:

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.*
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.*) Keep away from others as much as possible to keep from making others sick.

Other important actions that you can take are:

  • Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.
  • Be prepared in case you get sick and need to stay home for a week or so; a supply of over-the-counter medicines, alcohol-based hand rubs * (for when soap and water are not available), tissues and other related items could help you to avoid the need to make trips out in public while you are sick and contagious.

What's in a Radio Jocks Name?
"Kailangan Pa Bang Imemorize Yan"

Yan ang lagi kong naririnig sa mga jeepney na nasasakyan ko nung college ako sa mga byaheng Bukid-Faura, Taft & vice versa o di kaya naman sa mga route ng Taft/LeonGuinto/PedroGil-Guadalupe/Ilalim/Ibabaw/Gilid/Gitna at kung anu-ano pang posisyon.

Yan ang love radio 90.7.

Wala lang, naalala ko lang, nung nag-aapply pa kami ng mga kaibigan ko for OJT. Dahil sa inirefer ako ng kapatid ko sa kaibigan niya na nagwowork sa MBC nagpunta kami ng mga kaibigan ko sa Makati, dun pa kase ang opis nila nakatayo sa may Legaspi Village. Dun ko nalaman na ang DZRH, Love Radio at Yes FM ay magkakapatid pala. At dahil wala nung araw na yun ang kaibigan ng ate ko, kinuha na lang ang aming kunwa-kunwarian resume(bio-data na binili kay manang magtitinda ng sigarilyo na may sukling kendi). Tatawagan na lang daw kung need nila ng OJT. Tinawagan kami after a week, pero yung dalawa kong classmates na lang ang natuloy dun at sa DZRH sila nilagay, kasi ako ay nagsisimula na sa TIM, yung company na gumawa ng Automated Counting Machine o PCOS na ginamit nung Eleksyon 2010 sa Pilipinas. hehehe.

Pero di tungkol diyan ang post ko, ito ay tungkol sa mga dj's ng Love Radio (konek di ba?...hahaha). Di lingid sa inyong kaalaman at alam ko na kilalang kilala niyo ang pangalang Chris Tsuper, Nicole Hyala at Papa Jack, well, sa mga hindi nakakakilala gaya ko, sila ay ilan sa mga dj's ng naturang radio station, base na rin sa aking pagsasaliksik, kasi mas kilala ko sila Chinggay, Matt Montoya, Bruce Romano, Trish Diaz, The Gaucho, Brian Gomez, Cielo, Evette at lahat sila wala na sa RX...hahaha. Back to Love radio Dj's, ngayon ko lang nalaman via wikipedia na ang mga radio names nila na ginagamit pala ay hango sa mga common Filipino occupations gaya ng driver, vendor atbp. (oo ako na ang slow!!!). At heto sila....

  • Nicole Hyala – lifted from "kolehiyala", a female college student
  • Chris Tsuper - a cross-between "Christopher" and "tsuper", a jeepney driver.
  • Rica Hera - lifted from "kahera", "cashier"
  • Missy Hista - lifted from "masahista", a masseuse
  • Rico Pañero – lifted from "compañero", a moniker used to describe an attorney
  • Kristine Dera - lifted from "tindera", a vendress.
  • Papa Jack – lifted from the "padyak" boys, a bicycle with a sidecar
  • Matthew Dancer - lifted from "macho dancer"
  • Bobby Guard - lifted from "bodyguard"
  • Lala Banderas - lifted from "labandera"
  • Monsieur Betero – lifted from "sorbetero"
  • Tommy Tambay - lifted from "tumatambay"
  • Johnny Thor - lifted from "janitor"
  • Sexy Terry - lifted from "secretary"
  • Rey Porter - lifted from "reporter"

Kung sinu man sila sa tunay na buhay, wala akong pakialam. Hehehe

NO SORRY, NO WORK
Rumor has it.

Dati rati sabi sabi lang, haka haka. Tsismis, ganon. Ayokong maniwala kase dati nangyari ang parehong problema pero hindi nangyari ang gusto nila. Pero ngayon totohanan na. Lumala ng lumala ang sitwasyon hanggang sa nadamay na ang mga di dapat madamay. Nadamay, ang karamihan na sila lang ang inaasahan ng kani-kanilang mga pamilya.

Nagtatantrums ang Taiwan. Nagmamatigas at nanindigan ang Pilipinas sa nabitiwang salita. At ang kapalit, ang libo-libong pinoy na mawawalan ng trabaho! Tsk! tsk! tsk!

**********

Kaninang umaga, habang nasa higaan ako at naghihintay na mag-alarm ang alarm clock para bumangon at maligo ay naulinigan ko ang mga ka-room mates ko mula sa ibang kumpanya na nag-uusap at sa pakiwari ko ay naalarma sa nangyayari at sa mga bagong policy ng kanilang company regarding OFW's. Based on what I heard from one of my room mates, those who are having thier 2 years contract, finished are not be extended for 1 year more. Sa mga nakalipas na taon kasi, usually ang mga nagtatapos ng kanilang 2 years contract ay na-eextend ng isang taon pa or they like or good ang performance, iha-hire ka ulit, kasi nga naman kung maghihire sila ng bago, panibagong tuturuan, eh isa sa pinaka-ayaw nila ay ang may tinuturuan lalo na't hirap silang mag-ingles.

According sa mga kakwarto ko, iyon daw ngayon ang utos ng gobyerno dito na hindi na sila mag-rerenew ng ARC(Alien Residence Card) for extension & ban/freeze for hiring Filipino workers, dahil nga sa conflict between our country. And by this month, 10 ang uuwi sa kanilang company, yun yung hindi na pinag-extend, and rumor says that they will be replaced by the Thailanders. Sila yung mga tao na mukhang goons kapag nakita mo(hahaha, racist!), nagiinom sa mga side walk ng national road at animoy nag-pipicnic lamang sa park. Sila yung mga mahilig sa camouflage na pants at leather jacket (ikaw na ang action star, hahaha, racist talaga!). Kasi kapag sinabing taga-Thailand o T'ai Kou (in chinese) ang impression kase kakaiba, mga mahilig sa away, barumbado, mag-iinom, lack of discipline. Eh ayaw na ayaw ng mga Chinese sa mga ganun. At may narinig pa ako, na sa ibang company ay nag-iistart ng maghire ng mga Thailanders kapalit ng mga umuwing pinoy. Although may mga thailanders na dito kahit dati pa, pero kasi sa mga bakalan sila o kaya naman sa mga textile companies o dun sa mga trabaho na katawan ang gagamitin hindi ang isip.

Yun, sila daw ang ipapalit sa mga uuwing pinoy. Paano kung sa mga uuwi na yun eh, sila ang inaasahan, bread winner kung baga. Tapos hindi pa natatapos tubusin ang mga isinanlang lupa o kaya'y bayaran ang mga hiniram sa ibang tao na ginamit para lang makarating dito, hindi kaya madaling hanapin ang 70 to 100 thousand pesos na pang-placement sa agency. Pano kung sa loob ng dalawang taon na yun eh hindi pa sila nakakabayad sa mga utang. Tapos pag-uwi sa pinas, banner lang ang sasalubong mula sa gobyerno natin na may nakasulat na "mabuhay ang mga bagong bayani". Hayyy, nakakalungkot isipin at nakakapanghinayang naman ang talino, sipag at dedication sa trabaho ng mga OFW na ipinagpalit ang pansariling kaligayahan, tiniis ang lungkot at kung mamalasin ka pa ay sa mapang-aping amo o di kaya'y mahinang kumpanya.

Nang dahil sa pride at pagmamatigas ng ilan, libo libo ang magsusuffer at mawawalan ng pagkakakitaan.

**********

Kanina din, I had an argument with my supervisor with this 'sorry' issue. Sabi niya bakit daw takot ang Pilipinas sa China, porket malaking bansa yun at maliit lang ang Taiwan. Simpleng 'sorry' daw di pa magawa. Syempre bilang isang pinoy, ipagtatanggol ko pa rin ang bansa ko. Ang sabi ko naman, masyado na kayong nagtatantrums, para kayong mga bata na hindi lang naibigay ang gusto niyo, idadamay lahat ng kalaro. Isa pa, sabi ko, sa China naman ang kaso kaya tama lang ang ginawa ng gobyerno namin. At hinamon ko pa siya, sabi ko, oh sige palitan niyo ang mga Operator na pinay ng mga babaeng Thailanders ewan ko lang, baka mapeke kayo, kase baka iba sa kanila may titi o lawit. Tapos sabay sabi niyang, "oo nga!"
