Phil. Daily Inquirer’s Youngblood

Life can be so unfair at times. There are life lessons we ought to learn from experience. But isn’t it better to ‘know’ them ahead of time & learn instead of reaally experience them? by that I think we can save time & we gain wisdom about the world without the incovenience of consequences it might have brought.
I’m talking about learning life lessons from other’s experiences. This we can attain from our friends & from a good book which is the PDI’s 3 Youngblood books. It taught me personally about some life lessons & spared me the damage it might have brought.
Phil Daily Inquirer's Youngblood,books, pictures,
The Best of Youngblood (Book 1)
Available: National Book Store for 195.00

Youngblood 2.0 (Book 2)
Available: National Bookstore 175.00
Available: National Bookstore 195.00

Youngbllod 3.0 (Book 3)

These books are compilations of the editorial essays written by the young of the 90’s generation. It depicts how the youth of that generation lived their lives & tried to fit in the adults’ world. Although it was writen more than 10 years ago we the present generation can still relate to it like the cases of unwanted pregnancies, abortion, & climbing up the corporate ladder for career men & women. (to contradict the previous statement) There are times also that I couldn’t really relate to some of the articles because the writer’s english proficiency & vocabulary are beyond my reach. they are just too good to to be read by mediocre reader like me.

I also noticed another one: most of the writers are hailed from really good universities like UST, La Salle, UP, San Beda. So the book is an embodiment of the higher class’ sentiments. Not the lower classes like me. The medium of writing which is English hinders the rest of the youth of today to relate since they don’t bother to read anuthing written in English. It’s hard to encourage my classmates & friends to read it. It hardly interests them.

Are Managers Exempted to Falling Hair???

I ate at Mcdo just a while ago….and just as expected I’ve roamed my eyes to what was around me and tried to observe whatever catches my eyes. Then I noticed something really obvious & it surely provoked my curiousity.

Managers and powers-that be in all fastfoods & the restaurant I’d worked for before were not using any hairnet unlike the crews. I’ve pondered this for quite a while then asked “Are Managers Exempted to Falling Hair???” to no one but myself. As we all know, hairnets are used to avoid hair falling on or coming in contact with the food. (It is the dirtiest part of the body).
Most of them do the task of serving food being the cashier just like everybody else. So it’s highly possible that they mix the foods with their hairs.

So why not just comply to the rules they themselves impose? Is it their privilege not to? or a privilege to look good though they know that it may risk the quality of food they are serving? I just really can’t understand the world sometimes. Those are making the law/rules are the ones allowed to violate them. Is idealism already extinxt in our modern day? No wonder the product of generations that are gradually sprouting are “rejects” ( factory/industry terms). Can you balem them?

12.18.2009 – The National Christmas Party???

Taking my daily trip from the streets of Camarin Caloocan City to the busy & elegant roads of Ortigas, I’ve been seeing students from different levels carry gifts & foods & wear new clothes for their Christmas party. I’ve thought for a while & tried to remind myself if GMA again declared Dec 18 as the Christmas party day for all the schools. hahah but then di pala…nagkataon lang!

It’s nice to see their eager faces full of anticipation though. Some have even worn gown-like dresses, some were punkistas, some were kikays some were just plain. Like I used to be!

As I was doing my “observation” in the fx taxi I felt sad for not having a camera. I could have taken a shot to post here. But I lost mine when I was held up on my way home last September. So I just borrowed one pic from the net to make this more interesting to read.

Writing in Techie World

Hmmm…At first glance…what would the picture mean to you?? What does it say?
Has it ever occured to you that what this picture depicts is inevitable in our modern techie world. Even for some writers.
I’ve been a contributor to my school publication/newspaper (although I’m not that really good). Ive experienced even for a short while how other writers feel. How their freedom of expression are suppressed. How they have smoothly adapted to the new world that computers are creating. We have gardually been relying with word doc, word pad, computer, keyboard. We have been missing the real menaing of writing. Yes! I am included there. I’ve been too lazy to inscribe words & express myself through the use of a pen. I’d rather prefer seeing the blinking cursor wink at me when everything is blank. I have forgotten that WRITING as in holding a pen & scratching it against a surface is still the best way of ‘writing”. Seeing your penmanship even if it’s not legible sometimes expresses who you really are when you write. The feelings incorporated with it & the sentiments accompanying it. I remember writing this short letter-styled story in computer for our school’s literary folio. While I was doing it I was like crying……the emotion flows within me like a river. And I’ve even included “that” there. But I’ve thought to put some font style on it. Like the faded & blurred letters from tears or something wet to give more emphasis to the emotion. Yeah. I’ve tried to look for that style in the computer but there was none.
Computers do make our life convenient & help us in many ways but it can never replace the hands that we use. The hands that do the “dirty” work.
Write (verb) – to form (as words) by inscribing the characters or symbols of on a surface

Korea’s Cellphone Wastes

As many as 750,000 cellphones weighing 60 tons are piled at a electronics waste terminal of the Association of Electronics Environment in Yongin, south of Seoul, Tuesday. The Gyeonggi Province collected 25kgs of gold worth 1 billion won from the waste cellphones during a two-month campaign to collect waste cellphones for both the environment and needy households. The money will be used for the needy people.

In Korea, as shown above has a lot of cellphone surplus. They are just being thrown out by them but here in the Philippines it is considered a treasure. The folks in Gyeonggi Province donated & collected them for a good cause. They’ve said to have collected 25 kg. gold from them! My god! That’s quite a lot right???

2010 Elections! Vote & Register

My Turn

Boto Mo, Boses Mo!

Magparehistro, Bumoto, May Pag-asa Pa!

Your Vote, Your Voice!

Those are just a few of the messages on different tarpaulins that are scattered & posted on MRT’s, LRT’s electric posts persuading qualified ones especially the youth to vote this coming May 2010 National Elections. Millions of pesos are being spent for these ads. They are taking so many efforts to encourage us, the youth & first time voters to vote.

Have you ever thought why it’s such a big deal??

Dahil san mo man tingnan, tayo pa rin ang pag-asa ng bayan. Oo gasgas na nga. At madami na din ang di naniniwala pero tayo na ngayon ang nagiging mayorya. This is not only based on our national hero’s claim. According to an article from Philippine star, roughly 30 million voters will come from the age bracket of 18-40 years old (United Nation’s definition of youth). And we, (mostly those who are in their 2nd year) are one of them.

Narinig mo na rin ba yung high school teacher mo noon na nagsabi na bata ang populasyon? That is based on the 1995 consensus. So it’s 13 years ago which means that that statement has been profoundly taking effect through time. Di naman babata ang matatanda diba?

We can shape our nation’s future. That is….. if we decide to go out to register for the meantime.

Nothing could be accomplished unless we take the first step. So here are some guidelines on how you can register.

Ang kwalipikadong bumoto ay:
) Mamamayan ng Pilipinas.b) Labing-walong (18) taong gulang o higit pa.c) Naninirahan sa Pilipinas ng hindi bababa sa isang (1) taon at anim (6) na buwan sa barangay kung saan nais niyang bumoto bago maghalalan.d) Hindi diskuwalipikado ng batas.e) Hindi pa rehistrado.

A) Ang aplikante ay personal na magpaparehistro sa Election Officer (EO). Magdala ng mga dokumentong magpapatunay ng inyong pagkakakilanlan katulad ng mga sumusunod:

1. I.D na may lagda ng opisyal ng kumpanyang pinaglilingkuran.2. Postal I.D.3. Student’s I.D. or library card na may lagda ng opisyal ng paaralan.4. Senior Citizen’s ID.5. Driver’s license.6. NBI/PNP clearance.7. Passport8. SSS/GSIS ID9. PRC License.
Kung walang dalang dokumento na katulad ng nabanggit sa itaas, ang botante ay puwedeng kilalanin (under oath) ng mga sumusunod:
Kahit sinong rehistradong botante sa presinto o
Kahit sinong malapit na kamag-anak ng botante.
Ang Community Tax o Cedula o (sertipikasyon ng pagkakakilanlan) na galing sa opisyal ng barangay ay hindi tatanggapin.
Note: Registration is from December 02, until October 31, 2009 – This was extended to November.
It is easy to be cynical. It is easy to stand on the side lines, throw jeers and send out sighs of disappointment about the issues that bombard our country. It is easier to lay back, throw eloquent criticisms at the government, and enjoy the privilege of being an anonymous disgruntled Filipino citizen. But to actually endeavor to be part of the solution– is a more noteworthy task than watching the Philippines sink deeper into its own mud hole.” – a quote from one blogger. I forgot the name.

Happy ME – Sad I


I miss the times when I greet & text every body a “gudnyt” & asleep afterwards. Since I worked here as a phone english teacher to koreans I’ve been sending them “goodmorning” & sleep afterwards. That’s been one of my sentiments. A lot of my friends, classmates, schoolmates envy me for that. They are missing something so simple & unnoticable yet very significant to me. The time to do everything & at the same time have some time to savor them so that the memory lingers.

Everything in my world now is under time pressure. There’s this alarm clock that keeps ticking inside my head whenever I’m in school. I have to hurry. There is no single minute to waste & appreciate little things that really makes me happy. When I get some so liittle free time, I have to spend them with my bed. I have to rest my tired body. Even the 30-minute break which should be used for some quality time with classmates should be used to compensate for my lack of sleep.

I know that I’m doing the right thing. But not all right things make us happy. I am happy with where I am now. But I’m sad for what I’ve been missing the whole time. I never get to enjoy any of my time in school. I am so deprived of that. WHAT I HAVE TO DO THIS is always the priority than WHAT I WANT TO DO!

That’s the sacrifice I have to make to finish my studies.
