Ngayung Araw na ito naibigay ng Maykapal
Araw ng pag silang sa sangkatauhan
Nabulabog mundong ginalawan
Isa ka nga bang artista
O isang prinseseta

Mabuting kaibigan at mahirap na kalaban
Totoo nga ba o haka-haka lamang
“Cancer” ang iyong birth sign
Dapat nilang tandaan
Totoo ba naman?

“Kung nasa katwiran, dapat ipaglaban”
Animo guerera sa tapang niyan
Deep inside sa taong yan
Pusong mammon pala
sa bait at malasakit. ( Huwag ka muna kunin ni Lord).

Tanong ng marami, Sino Ka nga ba ate Gaya
Ina, kapatid, Ama, pinsan kaibigan
Lahat ginampanan, inaksiyunan
Walang tanungan at atrasan
Iyan si “Joy” sa amin.

Mga pangarap mo na nawa ay matupad
Mapagtapos mga anak ng kolehiyo
Maging tagumpay rin sana
Sa napili nilang kurso
Yan ang pusong Ina

Ngayung isang taon muli ang nadagdag
Sa mura mong edad ano ang nabago
Bihira ka na magluto
Facebook ay natoto
Adik d pa siguro.?

Sa araw na ito aming dalangin para sa iyo
Joy, happiness and Peace of mind
Now and the years to come
All yours wishes too
Be given to you.
Ni Lord Almighty

Weekly Horoscope( gotohoroscope.com)

That's enough. Really it is. More than enough. A little too much, in fact.
You don't want any more. You don't need any more. And you don't have to put up
with any more. Really you don't. You are up to your eyes and beyond in a mess.
You keep trying your best to clear it up. As fast as you do, along comes someone
or something with a new contribution to the confusion. They don't conveniently
dump their barrowful of bother in a quiet corner of your world. They tip the
contents all over the area that you have just worked so hard to clear up. You
just smile sweetly and say "Oh dear, what a pity. Never mind. I probably needed
to go over all that again anyhow." Next time it happens, blow your top. Demand
that other people sort it out - properly - NOW. To your amazement and relief,
they will.

The Missing Water Meter

Only in the Philippines.
The story of missing water meter.
I reported for work yesterday and my first problem to solve was to have the metal covering of our water meter removed because of leaking Nawasa water pipe.

The metal covering protected our water meter from being stolen as there was already a case previously when it was stolen by unscrupulous people.

Upon inquiring why it was welded and did not make provision to put padlock instead for easy opening? I was told that robbers only destroy the padlock.

No choice but to have it removed and called the Nawasa office to have it repaired as soon as possible. But night time came and no repairman came.

Isang tulog lang! (One night sleep only). I asked the store nearby, Mr. Donut if possible to look after our water meter because they are operating on a 24 hour basis.

The next day, it was gone. There were two water meters before but the next morning there was only one.
Only in the Philippines!
As for Nawasa people hope they come soon before the other is stolen again.

NBA Prospects

Just got this message from Tina and I find this interesting that is why I am sharing this with you:
2 NBA prospects from Thailand; Singkong Kangkong and Balatong Maybagoong shock & awe scouts from all over the world in this pick-up game. Not only can they shoot the basketball well like Kobe or LeBron but their size dwarfs Shaq O'Neal and Yao Ming. As multi-sport athletes, they also play soccer in this vid but doesn't show potential as in basketball.

Enjoy! It' nice to be back!

Do unto other

Photo from Stephen
It has been my habit of reading newspaper every time I travel in the morning while riding in a passenger jeep or an FX.
This morning was just like those ordinary days when my attention from reading was called by the lady who was seated just across mine.

Lady: “Shoks! Mama may barya na ho kayo sa P1, 000.00? Nakalimutan ko po magpapalit!” (Shoks! Mr. Do you have a loose change for P1, 000.00? I forget to have it change!) Sounding apolegitic.
Jeepney Driver: (While raising his right hand with a couple of P20.00 bills neatly folded between his fingers)” Ito lang ang kita ko ineng!” (These are my entire earnings lady!).

Without even thinking I reached for my coin purse and gave her P15.00 because I never got to know where he joined the ride to SM North Edsa.

She hesitated and shyly smiled perhaps thinking I am a dirty old man.

Me: “Somebody did this to me before and I am only returning the favor”.

She accepted and gave me profuse thanks that I must count it to be 6 times including the one before she alighted. Her fare was only P 7.00 so she returned to me the excess.

Yes it is true. An old lady paid for my fare during the time I was in same predicament such as hers.

I was in my first year of study at the Manila High school that morning, many summers ago. In my hurry I forgot to get my P0.25 cents allowance. (Funny huh!).
Fare then was P0.10 and “kandong”(a passenger sitting on a lap of another passenger) or standing on “stribo” was free.
There’s no free ride now! Right.

I was already perspiring very badly from searching all over my pockets where could have I placed my money. I must invert my two front pockets but still there were no signs of my beloved centavos. All the passengers were now looking at me. Suddenly, my savior, the lady sitting across mine reaches out a P 0.10 centavos telling the driver that it was for my fare.
I must have thanked him a lot for saving me from shamelessness. Before alighting I shyly asked the old lady how I could repay her.
“Just do this to people in your situation and you are considered fully paid”, she answered me while smiling and reaching for my hair and carefully shaking them.

This event in my life keeps flashing in my memory every time the same event happens and I would never get tired doing it again for the sake of the old lady.
I think I have paid it fully well for I have done this countless of times.
(Huwag lang airplane fare!)
The moral of the story:
Do unto other what you want others do unto you!
And bring extra coins in your pocket!

Hanggang sa susunod na kabanata!
