I created the article “Byaheng Langit” on September 5, 2011, monday, at 10:34 in the evening after having a ride with San Beda’s pride Mang Roger. Why “Byaheng Langit”? I have some many random pop-up thoughts that time that it made me realize things differently. After realizing things, I decided to write “Byaheng Langit” for me to share my realization to other people. Without even changing my clothes and eating my dinner (Even though I was already hungry at that time), I rapidly sat down in front of my computer, turn it on, and eagerly created the article. I was so inspired that time and I don’t even know why. Maybe because at some point, I saw things that cannot be seen by our naked eye. The article was my simple appreciation to life. :)
“MAG-ISIP KA NGA!!”, sabi ko sa sarili ko habang tinitignan ang matandang si mang roger na nakaupo sa maduming pintuan ng jeep. “E kung tumayo ka kaya para makaupo si mang roger diba?!”. Gusto kong paupuin si mang roger sa upuan ko hindi lang dahil sa matanda na sya kundi dahil din sa aking respeto sa kanya. Ngunit hindi ko magawa. Hindi ko malapitan si mang roger sa mga oras na iyon. Kaya ko syang lapitan kapag kami ay nasa San Beda ngunit hindi ko maisip kung bakit nag-aalinlangan akong lumapit sa kanya.
Habang tinititigan ko sya, biglang pumasok sa isipan ko ang ideyang “ganyan ba talaga ang alamat?”. Ang nirerespeto at kinagigiliwan ng maraming mayayamang estudyante ay sumasabit lang sa jeep para makauwi. Tinitingala sya ng iba dahil sa kanyang kamangha-manghang nakaraan ngunit tumitingala sya sa langit na parang hinahanap ang pag-asa sa kinabukasan nya. Bakas ang pagod sa kanyang mga mata.
Mabuti pa si mang roger, ang sipag. Di alintana ang kanyang katandaan, pumupunta siya sa Beda ng maaga at umuuwi ng gabi. At sa buong araw na pagtitinda niya sa San Beda, mas malaki pa ang kinita ko kaysa sa kanya. Ako na nagcu-cut sa mga klase ko at umaabsent hangga’t may pagkakataon, ay lagi nyang pinapaligaya sa bawat pagdaan ko sa kanyang maliit na tindahan. Ang simpleng pangangamusta nya sa akin na may ngiti sa kanyang mukha ay higit pa sa pagbili ko sa kanyang mga paninda.
May isang lalaking nakaupo sa tabi ng pintuan ang nakatitig kay mang roger, mukang mayaman at edukado dahil sa kanyang makikintab na kagamitan at malinis na itsura. Naisip ko ang mga nasa itaas dahil sa kanya. Kung sila kaya ang nakasabit? Kung maluwag ang jeep, babayaran ko lahat ng bakanteng upuan para hindi sila makaupo. Malamang hindi nila kayanin ang pag-sabit sa jeep. Hindi kasi bagay sa kanila. Nawawal ang poise nila. Pero hindi sila sasabit sa jeep, dahil kayang kaya nilang bumili ng higit pa sa isang sasakyan para makauwi. Yung isa, para sa convoy, para maangas silang tignan. Mayaman kasi sila. Kaso pilit ang pag-respeto sa kanila.
Bumaba ang aking katabi at nakaupo na si mang roger sa aking tabi. Isang pangungusap lang ang nasabi ko, “tabi tayo mang roger.” Ng malapit na ako sa amin, bigla akong kinausap ni mang roger. “San ka umuuwi? Bayad ka na ba?” Nagulat ako sa aking narinig, ako na estudyante ng San Beda ay tinanong ng mambabalot na si mang roger kung bayad na ba ako na tila kapag sumagot ako ng “hindi” ay ililibre nya ako. Sa puntong iyon, mas tumas pa ang respeto ko sa kanya. Siguro kung ibang mayaman ang kasabay ko, kahit sobra sobra pa ang pamasahe nya hindi nya ako tatanungin kung bayad na ba ako.
Sa maikli naming pagkwekwentuhan, nasabi niya sa akin na matutulog na sya pag uwi at gigising na naman ng maaga para magtrabaho. Sa sobrang mangha ko, ang nasabi ko lang ay “mabuti pa kayo mang roger ang sipag, di tulad nung prof ko na pumapasok lang pag magpapa-exam.” Parehas kaming natawa.
Pag baba ko sa jeep, napangiti ako. Ang sarap sumakay ng jeep. Kasi marami kang nakikitang iba’t-ibang bagay na pag-iisipin ka, marami kang nararamdaman at nararanasan, at marami kang nakikilalang iba’t-ibang tao kahit hindi mo sila nakaka-usap. Iyon ang nagbigay sa akin ng inspirasyon na isulat ito. Kung ikukumpara ang panahon na ginugol ko sa paghahanap ng dahilan para ako ay magsulat, malamang segundo lang itong panahon na ginugol ko para maisulat ang kwentong ito. “Mas mahirap maghanap ng inspirasyon kaysa gumawa ng aksyon.”
Nakakatuwa! Ang dami ko nang nababasang post. haha! Dati puro reblog lang, pero ngayon ang hahaba na ng mga text. Nakakatuwang isipin na maraming napipilitang gumawa ng blogs kasi dami kong napapansin. Dami kasi nilang nasasabi eh. haha!
Keep up the good work guys! You’re doing really great! :)
Right now, I’m finishing our draft in our Theology subject. After that, I plan to finish the first part of our chapter 4 in Marketing Research. I’m glad I already finished our Case Study in Management 4 and Obligations and Contracts. My goal for tomorrow is to play basketball for our section in Marketing League at San Beda College, finish the rest of our Chapter 4 in Marketing Research, start writing articles on my notebook and case reviews on yellow pad for Obligations and Contracts, and prepare our documents for a survey and Focus Group Discussion that will be held the next day (monday) around 2 in the afternoon at the Manila Boys Town Complex in Marikina. After the survey and Focus Group Discussion, me and my group mates will finish our chapter 4 and 5, power point presentation for our final defense, and all the things that should be passed to our beloved professor. And yeah, it will be at 6 pm to 8 pm on the same day.
After that day (monday), me and my other group mates will have our video and draft defense for our moral issue. That wills serve as our final exam. Hours after that, with my partner, we will conduct a game for our class that will serve as their quiz for that day.
And for the most stressful part of the week, I need to finish writing my obligations and contracts notebook that will serve as 15% of my final grade and my case digests for 9 cases which will represent the 10% of my final grade. And that’s not all, I need to review the case assigned to us for our group defense and I also need to review 14 articles for my individual recitation and also, another 58-article review for our quiz on the same subject. Not to mention the final exams for my other subjects.
And for the last task, I need to make videos for our internet marketing. Before I forgot, still need to make advertising plan for our advertising subject (MKC05).
This post is not a blog but my task list. I made this not for everyone to be entertained but for me to be reminded. But if you’re entertained, then this can also serve as an entertainment post. I’m not mad, I’m stressed. I think I need to eat some desserts. (stressed=desserts) haha! XD
My first time I reblog a post is when I read the post of Cha Junsay about the red lions which is freaking right! What the hell! Maybe we don’t know how hard you guys train or how many sweat you pour on the court or how many sacrifices you already gave, and maybe your dedication on basketball is much heavier than us. But the fact that we can’t feel your hearts while playing the games is already enough for us to say that our support is already enough for you guys to pump up, maybe its time for you guys to support yourself. It’s not about support, its about the passion. If we saw that you’re passionate to your games, then maybe, we can show our passion to support you guys. Well, good luck and hope that you guys improve more. Each and everyone of us always have the space for improvement. :)
I just finished watching a very inspiring rock movie entitled “Anvil! The story of Anvil”. I downloaded the movie simply because the comments were too dramatic and full of compliments that it made me really curious and eager to download the movie. I am a fan of rock music, particularly heavy metal and classic rock, that is why when I watched the trailer of the movie and read the comments, I just got goosebumps all over me. My new idols, Lips and Robb Reiner. I consider you guys as the royal-blood of rock and roll!
3 decades and 6 years of non-stop dreaming of becoming a rock star and playing music all over the world is no joke. That is what dedication truly means. After all those downfalls, arguments, quarrels, misfortunes, tragedies, bad comments, and rejections, Anvil, particularly the vocalist Lips and the drummer Robb Reiner, still managed to achieve their lifetime dream with dedication, heart, pride, love, inspiration, perseverance, and most importantly, with happiness.
What is pursuing your dream? Is it when you fail and try again? Fail then fail then fail then try again? Or always failing but still never giving up? And what is a brother? Son of you father? mother? Anyone who you wanted to call brother?
In this movie, you will realize that dreams are not just something that you want to achieve, but something that you want to happen in your whole life. It is not just the goal, but also the path. It is not just never giving up, it is also about inspiring other people and taking them with you. It’s all about doing what you can do while you can. Dedicating almost everything for that certain thing.
Brother is not just a relationship, but a commitment. It’s not just a title, but also a dedication. It’s not all about supporting, but also understanding. It’s not only about helping him, but also changing yourself in order for you to help him more. A brother is not only by name, but by heart.
The movie completely portrays the saying “Live life to its fullest”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RALPH CHRISTOPHER KUE aka “BIG BOSS”!! Hahaha! Thanks for the wonderful time and unforgettable memories (and for the inspiring scars on my arms). :D
Always keep up the good work and don’t change your attitude. I know Buddha will always guide you. Hahaha! Nag-painom ka na, nagpa-basketball ka na, nagpa-kain ka na, nagpalaro ka pa ng PS3 tsaka cards? Ano pa ba?! Pa-dota ka na!!! Hahaha! XD
I had fun watching this video of my friend’s little brother Clarence. He was so young and so “bibo” that we already considered him as the subdivision’s mascot. Haha! Well, we were already wanting him from the time his mother was carrying him in her womb until today…, and maybe tomorrow…, and the next days (But I think until he’s 12 or lower, he’s not cute anymore at that time).
I’m just so curious why was he behaving politely in that video? It looks like he’s following everything his brother taught him to do, without even asking why or making a very violent reaction. Every time he went to the court with his father, he will always welcome majority of us with a punch, and of course his “ninongs” and “titos” with a kiss. Haha! If he was already disrespecting us at this point in life, what more when he became matured and big? I can’t imagine what’ll happen. Anyway, if he’s still adorable, I will never argue nor run with his brutality. :D
Here is my first poster. Well, at first, I am not confident because it looks like a sculpture rather than a poster. But when I’m imagining the figure, I was so excited to see the finished product and then without any hesitation, I started the sculpture.
The theme of the competition was “The spirit of Bedan excellence” and I’m not quite sure if the poster portrays the theme. I used a guy (the LRT security guard and a woman in the guidance department called it “spider-man”. Does it really looked like spider-man?) popping from the illustration board as the character for the spirit and the color red and those things written in the guy as the excellence of San Beda community.I hope I’ll win the competition. :)
These are some of the posters that I made last weekend and I’m still designing right now. i’m still looking for an inspiration to create a design that will make me stun even if I am the one who made it. Darn it! I am still not satisfied. I know that there is still something that I’m looking for that can make me satisfied. I hope that I’ll find it before I run out of time. -__-
I don’t know why but I felt sleepy when I heard this song. I love rock. Rock is in my vein. I eat rock for breakfast. hahaha! But as we all know, rock gives intense feeling and hype to those who listens to it. Well, not for me. I felt calm and peace when I’m listening to rock music. I even thought of nature, literally, when listening to Metallica or Nirvana. And I fall asleep when listening to Nickelback and Creed and Red Hot Chili Pepper. I may look like an addict but I swear I’m not. It’s just that… ”rock is my cereal”. :))
