Kapirasong Tiwala

"Parang tiwala  pag namantsahan na! Mahirap nang linisin pa, di kayang burahin Kahit na anong gawin...!"
Isa ito sa mga paborito kong linya sa kanta ng Parokya ni Edgar, "Choco Latte". Tungkol ito sa isang bagay na dapat ay pinaka-iingat-ingatan natin lahat: TIWALA.
Naalala ko isang tahimik na gabi habang nagbabasa ako sa aking maliit na cotbed sa isng barko patungong Zamboanga (ayan, kwentuhan muna tayo)... Habang hinihintay na magsimulang tumulak ang barko, naisip kong bumili ng ilang makakain (pabaon). Dumaan yaring bata na nagbebenta ng sari-saring pagkain, Itlog at Junay*, Patulakan at Daral (mga tausug foods), tsaka sari-saring botelya ng mineral water, "Sting" at kalamansi juice. Bumili ako sa kanya ng ilang pagkain na hindi siguro umabot ng 50peso na halaga, at binigyan ko siya ng 200peso na pera, pambayad. (kayo na bahala sa Mathematics)
"kah wayruun kanat-kanat mu?" nagtanong siya kung may barya ba ako na mas maliit sa 200. "Anduh, wayruu…

"Bakit hindi ka nag Nursing?" --Oh pls. don't ask me that!

A hell of a question.
When some people ask me what my course was (or "is" if I pretend to be still a student), they raise their eyebrows after telling them that I finished BS Zoology. Then comes the ever-expected-question: "What's that? Ba't di ka nagNursing?"
From my very first room-mate in MSU Marawi, to my High School batchmates who always thought I was BSN; to new friends I meet along the road of Life, and even to jeepney drivers whom I come to talk with. They all end up with that same, sour-look in their eyes and ask that same question.
Again, hell of a question people ask me (and other people stuck like me, too).
Parang "THE WORLD WILL END IF YOU DO NOT ENROLL BS NURSING."!
Now let me clear things up here and explain why I DID NOT enroll BSN (its a personal choice); and why, of all the courses in the world, I would pick BSN last (No offenses intended for the BSN Students. Most of my frends are BSN Grads, BSN Students or still aspiring for BSN. 4 …

Trabaho.


Isang napakalaking bagay na pinaghahandaan ng bawat nilalang na sumubuk at umapak sa unang baitang pa lamang ng pag-aaral. Anim na taon sa elementarya, apat na taon sa Hayskul, at apat na taon muli sa kolehiyo. Pagkagraduate sa College, at may sariling Bachelor's Degree ka na, ang pakiramdam mo ay tila isang ibong ngaun lang nakaranas ng kalayaan. Napakasarap. Napakatamis. Tila abot mo na ang lahat. Para bagang, isang hakbang na lang ay matatamo mo na ang ilang taong pinaghirapan mong mga pangarap. Mga pangarap na inakalang makakamit kung ikaw ay may trabaho na. Maayos na sahod, isang masayang pamilya, maayos na bahay at magarang kotse kung makayanan man. Sa wakas, ngaung natapos mo na ang pag-aaral, tapos na ang paghihirap mo at ng mga magulang mo. Isa itong malaking paalala na panahon na nga; Panahon n…

HELP the FLOOD VICTIMS in COTABATO!

We have heard the recent calamity that had fallen upon our brothers in Cotabato. Indeed this is another challenging event for us to rise up again in every fall we meet along the road.
As of the moment, Alhamdulillah, a lot of relief operations are being done throughout Mindanao from both our Muslim brothers and non-Muslim Friends. it is in this regard that I am asking everyone out there to share any amount of blessing you have. Be it in a single peso or any used clothes to be sent to those in need. It is now high time for us to show how strong our brotherhood is!
For any donations (in any area you are) pls follow the badge in this blog's Sidebar (That small picture in the right.)
Salam kasilasa! Allah knows every single parcel of idea, effort and prayers we give. He will certainly give the reward in millionfolds in the Hereafter InshaAllah!
Wassalam.
