Sugod Mga Kapatid!

I found an old piece of yellow paper in my files when I was decluttering last month. It’s a song I made for my Philippine History class when I was a fresh man. Playing it with the guitar is aweeesuuum!

Title: Sugod

In the tune of: Voltes V opening song

Bm                               Em

Ang Pilipinas ay under nila Joe

F#7                                Bm

Noong mil nuebe ciento kwarenta’y dos

Em                           Bm

Pero dumating mga Hapon ayan na

F#7                              Bm

Sunod-sunod na ang mga aberya

Refrain:

A7                                  D

Ang Pilipinas binomba kung saan-saan

C#7                            F#m

Walang sinamba pati isang simbahan

G                    F#7

Ang giyera ay umpisahan!

Chorus:

Bm

Sugod na mga Pinoy

Em                     Bm

Kasama nyo ang kano

Em                        Bm

Ipagtanggol ang  bayang ito

C#7            F#7

Kahit pa sa inyo

Bm                  Em

May sakit man o gutom pa

F#7           Bm

Tuloy ang bakbakan!

2nd stanza

Ang Hapon inatake ang Corregido

Wa epek sila kahit mang backdoor

Marami silang bateryang may karga

Ang hapong lumapit patay kang bata ka

Refrain:

Ang hapon kinutoff ang kanilang tubig

(some text missing)

Ubos na ang gamot pati ang kanin

Ang tiyan puro hangin

Chorus:

Ituloy ang laban

Kahit sa kamatayan

kaya lang hindi na keri

Susuko na lang

Ayan tuloy

Nasakop

Reresbak na lang!

Teren ten teren, teren ten teren

Ten ten ten, ten ten ten!

Let’s pay tribute to the people who fought at the Battle of Corregidor!

Mabuhay!

Something’s Missing

Recently, I have been missing a lot of things. Things that are not tangible but memorable. Not only memories but also people who have been a part of my life.

I miss: Car shows

Straight through the heart!

I miss: Cosplaying

First group cosplay. Very memorable. Diba CC?!

I miss: Majayjay.Haay.

Kelan kaya mauulit ganitong outing?hmmmm

Delata.Uber Fresh Water.Malamig.

I miss: Batangas.

Lakas tama yan tuloy tulog buong umaga

I miss: Splash

Pagod na? Swimming pa!

I miss: Parolan sa Dili.

Makailang beses din tayong pumunta dun. Oi Allan wag kokontra! Gusto ko parolan eh.

Thumbs up if you know Ramon Bautista!

I miss: My Highschool friends

Malapit na birthday ko.Baka next year ko na kayo imbitahin.Post bday celeb ba.

I miss: BoBoS

Kulang tayo dito.Di na tayo nabuo-buo. Dapat mag grand reunion ang BoBoS

And most importantly:

I MISS YOU!!!

yun yun eh!

Justice for Given Grace Cebanico

Right now, as I am writing this, I am getting goosebumps. A UPLB student was raped and murdered. And her body was found near IRRI (International Rice Research Institute) tuesday morning this week.

Given Grace Cebanico was a third year computer science student at the University of The Philippines Los Baños. She was also a DOST scholar. She was staying at the 5th of September Mansion, a dormitory on Diamond Street in Umali Subdivision, a residential area near UPLB.

She went to a group meeting on monday and never came home. 7 am of October 11, her body was found near IRRI, inside the area of IPB(Institute of Plant Breeding) to be exact.Goosebumps again…The police are looking into the angle of robbery. Because her laptop was missing. To worsen the crime, the possibility of rape is highly probable because her underwear and bra strap is missing.

I really felt compelled blogging this unfortunate news. Maybe because I want to heighten the awareness of my friends with their surroundings. We do not know when a crime will happen and to whom. So friends, be careful ha. Especially those who always go home at night. Maging listo kayo. Always mag-iingat kase mahal ko kayo.

But there is good news: the police have caught one of the suspects on the killing of Grace. Percival de Guzman alias “Totoy”, a 38-year-old tricycle driver from Barangay Batong Malaki in Los Baños, is now in custody. The police said that de Guzman’s tricycle was the vehicle used in kidnapping Cebanico while walking home. They say she might have been forced in riding the said vehicle.

Another suspect at large is Lester Ivan Lopez Rivera, a bank security guard from Bay, Laguna. If my hunch is correct, Rivera’s standard issue gun was the weapon used in ending Cebanico’s life.

Another life, another future, destroyed because of greed and lust.

To Given Grace Cebanico’s family and friends, condolences I give you. Justice must be served!

Globe’s Dirty Tactic

Do you have a hard time registering to globe’s Unlimited Call and Text promos? I know I do! And it’s pissing me off already!

I have been a Globe user ever since cellular phone was introduced to my life. And I have seen tremendous changes in their company, in a customer-related way. And now, their services indeed has improved. But they may be employing an underhanded strategy in raising their sales.

If you are in Metro Manila, it is relatively easier to register in SUPERUNLI(unlimited call and text to globe and TM) and COMBO20(unlimited text+50 mins calls)  than when you live in the province, e.g. Laguna. It’s such a pain!

Now, Globe has has this new offering called mySuperPlan, a post-paid plan, wherein you can choose the content of your plan. Their offer is very enticing; they are offering very beautiful hand sets for FREE(it’s not reallly free you know, you’re also paying for it).

Have you ever wondered why there is now a limit in the number of registering users in this promos? I think I do. Pain in registering in unlicall and text offers is only for prepaid users, what if you’re a post-paid user which has an unlimited call and text plan? No hassle then!

That is it! For you to convert from a prepaid user to a post-paid user. For a businessman like me, calling and texting is very vital. Magastos sa load if you will not subscribe in call and text offers when using your cellular phone very,very often. So to avoid this very INCONVENIENT experience, you would rather want to have an unlimited call and text.

Just imagine how this would affect their sales. There are more than 80 million cellphone users here in the Philippines. And Globe is one of the 3 biggest, well, only the 3 telco’s when it comes in cellular phones. You do the math.

I have no option but to yield to them. Another sales made by them!

All hail o great Globe!

YOUR DEARLY DEPARTED

Life they say is short, so just like money, spend it wisely – Alzek

A deceased relative is something of the norm for the people; we all have been through it. And recently, I experienced it once again.

Wednesday evening, my aunt called over the cellphone in a crying voice. My grandmother’s condition is getting real worse. Who wouldn’t be worried?! We rushed to get to Pasig where most of my relatives on my mother’s side live and so is my mother’s mother, my grandmother of course.

There she lays in her deathbed, her eyes closed, troubled breathing as if she was chasing it. Most of my relatives are in tears by the sight of our nanay Crising, we were all helpless. She has hearing problems to make our parting messages to her harder to convey. Nonetheless, we gave it to her.

Whatever we do, she didn’t open her eyes, we just want her to see us all for the very last time. We each told her our messages to her. But my sister was not with us at the time. So we had her  on loudspeaker over the phone. A miracle happened! She opened her eyes upon hearing my sister’s voice! The room became very emotional.

My mother asked my sister to come to Pasig so she can see her alive for the very last time, so she did. It was as if she was trying to say something, but was unable to because her motor skills have been failing already. For me, I think she wants to tell us her last words but was unable to that is why she kept trying until her last breath.

How I wish God would take back already the life He loaned to our beloved grandmother; such greater pain it is to see her suffer before her life ends.

My sister and I went home 4 in the morning. On the way home, my mother called us, she is gone. She is gone. She is gone.

In the evening we went there again for the wake. As I lean on the coffin, I saw a smile on her wrinkled face. Well at least she’s happy.

The three-day funeral wake was very fulfilling to the stomach thanks to mommy and all who helped prepare the food. Medyo nasira diet ko.

We attended her last mass and burial. As she is being carried out of the house, my cousins and aunts started crying.

The weather was hot and humid when we walked going to the church. I was sweating, but I did not care.

After the mass, we went straight to the cemetery. This is the most emotional part of every funeral, the burial. I was very much relieved that my tita Nelia, my aunt who’s been always been with my grandmother, was not very emotional anymore. May sakit sya so getting very emotional might trigger her illness. I love you ninang!

With all of these crying and weeping, I am not a part of. I know my relatives have seen it. Not crying doesn’t mean I don’t care. Not crying means staying strong(sounds machismo, I know) .Sadness can be expressed in other ways other than crying; it can be in the form of songs, poems, and even writing(like what I’m doing).I have already accepted what God has in store for her.Acceptance makes the grief more bearable.

I love my grandmother  VERY MUCH. We will miss you Nanay Crising!

As the days went by, the moody weather gave me the fever-like cold. Not very pleasant with the not so very cool weather these days. Ideas ideas ideas. Where art thou? The chirping avian creatures in the bright glaring sun, melting ice like the ice shelves. And what about the RH bill? I heard it’s gonna be passed. No condoms for us then?lol. Don’t eat milkfish, i saw in the news many are selling botcha’s; botchang isda, that’s new to the ear. I listening to Sitti right now.

IF YOU ARE READING THIS RIGHT NOW MAYBE BECAUSE THE TITLE CAUGHT YOUR ATTENTION AND LATER FINDING OUT THE CONTENT IS NON-SENSE. JUST A LITTLE EXPERIMENT OF MINE.THANKS FOR READING. =)
