One More Step to Sucess: PBO Bazaar for a Cause

Image
From one person's wish of extending generosity and kindness to others, the Pinoy Bloggers Outreach (PBO) was born. The first attempt to put smiles in the faces of others and share some time with them was done at White Cross Children's Home. I wasn't there. I didn't know much of what happened, how they did it, but I definitely know the fulfillment they have felt after it became a huge success. All I know, I want to be part of the next project.

First thing first, I read the blogs of the others, started blogging, got introduced to great writers and personalities, and then I joined the Facebook Group of PBO where most discussions are being held, members can freely speak up their minds about the activities of the group and the likes. The search for the venue had been a struggle for we wanted to earn as much as we can yet, spend minimally for the bazaar itself. God is good! All the universe conspired. With the great help from Pasig Capitol Community Church, headed by Pastor …

One Hit Wonder

Image
I first heard this song from my boss's birthday jam way back in 2010, but when I asked him about the title, he said, he didn't know. And since we seldom get to talk, I painstakingly took the effort of re-playing the video and getting the lyrics of the song, then searching it as it is, with the power of google, I got it! I  WILL STILL LOVE YOU by Stonebolt. It was a great hit sometime in 1978- a one hit wonder.

They call it a one hit wonder because it is the ONLY song of the band that really hit the top charts during their time. Hmm.. I tried to listen to other songs by Stonebolt but just like that of others, they really didn't appeal to me. I never tried to dig in further in the history of the band, how this song became it is and I just stick to knowing the song as it is.

I wonder what made the writer compose the song. The writer must have loved someone so much that even after all the pain and disappointment, the writer can still say he/she still loves that person. With no d…

Ang Blogging, PBO at Ako

Babad ako sa internet. Simula nang madiskubre ko ang magic na nagagawa nito. Internet dependent na nga siguro akong matatawag. Nauubos ang oras ko sa chat, net surfing at iba pang pwedeng magawa sa internet. Itinuring na din akong sekretarya, tanungan ng kung anu ano, schedule ng movie, itineraries, prices and the likes. Nag-attempt na din akong mag blog blogan noon. Di ko lang na maintain dahil wala lang. Mas mahilig akong magbasa lang talaga. Pero minsan na din akong nanalo sa writing contests. Hindi lang talaga constant ang motivation ko sa pagsulat.

Anyway, sa minsang pagiging mausisa ko, naging fb friend ko Crunchee at nakita ko ang link ng blogspot nya. Hanggang sa nakilala ko na ang mga sikat ng blogosphere. Basta, sinasabi lang sakin ni Crunchee kung alin yung mga magagandang urls then ill search for it. Basa-basa. Noon, basa lang talaga, di ako nagcocomment. Hanggang sa dahil may pagkapakialamera ko in nature, di ko napigilan ang sarili kong magcomment dito, comment doon.

My Intention.

January 24, 2013 The Committee Teach For the Philippines

Dear Sir/Madam;
Good day.
I saw #Teachforthephilippines on Twitter last night and my curiosity made me aware of your advocacy. I am writing today to express my intention without hesitation to be part of the Teach for the Philippines Fellowship.
My name is Meow Meow, 26 years old, a graduate of Bachelor in Secondary Education Major in Physics and a Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) Passer last 2007. As I read the qualifications for eligibility, I can’t help my excitement to apply and let you know that I can be one of the fellows for this great cause.
I strongly agree with your vision of providing every Filipino child a quality education. I came from a family who value education so much. I had seen my father’s sleepless nights and workaholic days just to fulfill his familial duties—a roof on our heads, food on our table and most importantly, a good education. He would always remind us that it’s the only thing they can giv…

Happy Thoughts!

Happy Hearts Day Everyone!
Today I had received one of the best gift for Valentine's Day.
I'm gonna let you know soon.

I was advised not to talk about it yet. But I'm very much excited to share the happiness I feel today.

Paglisan.

Napako ang paningin nya sa labas. "Ang ganda ng langit, kunan ko nga..." Sabi nya sabay kuha sa kamera nya. "Alam mo ba walang ganito dun, dun parang ang taas ng mga ulap, di tulad dito, ang ganda ng pagka asul ng langit..." Nangingiti nyang pagkukwento.
"Di mo ba gusto ang pagkain?" Napansin nya yata ang bagal ko sa pagkain. "Mabagal lang talaga ko kumain." Sabi ko na lang. Habang iniisip ko na iyon na marahil ang huli naming pagkikita, di ko na malasahan ang pagkain. Pinipilit ko na lang ubusin. Pero di ko talaga kinaya. Itinabi ko na lang ang plato na halos kalahati pa ang laman. "Busog na ko."
"Mamimiss kita," gusto ko sanang banggitin. Pero di ko ginawa. Pinagkasya ko na lang ang sarili ko sa isiping ako ang kasama nya ngayon. Ako ang inuna nyang nais makita nung dumating sya. Ako din ang huli nyang kasama ngayong pabalik na sya.
Alas-dos na. "I have to check in na" tumayo sya at inayos ang mga gamit. Ako din, ini…

Dahil Iyakin Ako. Noon, Ngayon at Magpakailanman

Hindi ko talaga alam kung bakit kelangan ka pang tumulo tuwing nasasaktan ako. Puwede namang di ka na umagos pa nang hindi na makita ng iba na may dinaramdam ako. O kaya, bat hindi na lang tuwing masaya ko ikaw dumating?

Kaso ibang klase ka! Mapamasaya, mapamalungkot na pinagdaraanan ko, nandyan ka.

Bukod sa ayokong maramdaman ang sakit ng pagkabigo, ayoko ding makita ng iba ang pagdurusa ko. Kung pwede lang na hindi ka dumaloy tuwing naaalala ko ang masasakit na kahapon. Nagagawa ng iba yun, pero bat saking mga mata parang may bukal ng mga luhang laging nag uunahan sa paghaplos sa magkabilang pisngi ko.

Ayun na nga...... POKER FACE sana.

MY JOURNEY WITH TEACH FOR THE PHILIPPINES

Ever heard of this campaign:

http://www.teachforthephilippines.org/

It is a non-profit organization which believes that Filipino child has a right to an education without compromises, an education that involves and realizes the totality of a person's possibilities,an education that is excellent, relevant, and inclusive.

It is a newly organized movement in the Philippines under the umbrella of Teach For All-a worldwide network of non-profit organizations with almost 25 countries affiliation. 

What happens here?
The organization is in search of young professionals and newly graduates who can teach for two years in one of the high-need schools in our community. They will be trained, compensated and supported by the organization up to the end of the 2-year program.

I signed up.
Yes, I did. I had been invited for a demo-teaching, interview and assessment last Monday, February 4, 2013 in their office at Makati. 

I think I did well, as per the verbal assessment of my rec…
