Arnelia I just want to share it... My speech as guest speaker for 60th Commencement Rites of Garita Elementary School Batch 2014 (March 28/9AM) 24 years had passed wayback year 1990 to reminisce the important event for each child of this batch as their one Read more ...
of their very special event in their life their Graduation Rites! Alam nyo po, may isang batang!... kabilang... sa naturang mga magsisipagtapos ng taong yaon? Namutawi sa kanyang isipan at kanyang tinuring sa kanyang sarili habang nakikinig din sa panauhing pandangal nila, "sana balang-araw babalik ako sa aking alma matter at sa aking muling pagbabalik ako naman na ang nakatayo sa harapan ng maraming batang mag-aaral na magsisipagtapos upang makapagbigay naman ng mensahe at makapaghatid inspirasyon sa bawat isa. And this child that I am saying is now the person standing here infront of you right now. Last month when Ma'am Sanada told me and asked permission from me sabi nya, "pwede ka ba naming maging speaker Nel? " My surprised replied questions immediately, "ako po? saan po ako mag-i speaker, are you sure po? " O diba, sinagot ko si Ma'am ng mga sunud-sunod na katanungan. She reply immediately also, "oo ikaw nga! as in sure na sure! wala ng iba pa!" "Ano pong event yan Ma'am?", sadyang di po talaga ako makapaniwala. "Sa Graduation Day!", sabi ni Mam... Medyo natigilan po ako... maybe i spent for about 5 seconds of silence... for having my deep sense of thought and feelings for not believing instantly from what I've heard. Nagtanong pa ulit ako kay Ma'am na may halong flattered feeling na,... "really? as in po Ma'am?" Kaya ang segue naman po ni Ma'am Suarez, "oo nga!... ikaw nga Arnelia!" Kasunod na sinabi naman ni Mam Sanada sa akin, "diba ikaw si Arnelia Escano Lagarile!" paniniguro ni Ma'am sa akin. With full of humbleness... I answered... "Sige po Ma'am." Honestly speaking, aaminin ko po sa inyo bakit di po ako nakasagot agad kay Ma'am I just had a very quick thinking and asking myself "WHY ME?" Samantalang wala pa naman ako sa rurok ng tagumpay, pero sinagot din ako agad ng aking sarili... "hindi ba dapat matuwa ka? at higit sa lahat you must be proud of yourself"... kaya ayun po. Hanggang sa makauwi ako hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala. Since then, I never stop searching, looking and hoping na sana may irelease nang info ang Deped sa internet regarding about the Theme for Graduation and fortunately, voila! presto! immediate answered prayer po... it took me 3days only to look for. Kaya ang sabi ko po sa aking sarili, "kaya ako siguro ang napili nila Ma'am maybe related sa akin ang theme." "HINDI NATITINAG ANG PUSONG PILIPINO." In line with this theme, according to our Education Secretary Br. Armin Luistro, "let us maintain the solemnity of our graduation by remaining frugal and simple" What is frugal? Frugal means... economical or thrifty.... matipid in tagalog. Alam nyo po ba... itong aking kasuotan ngayon ay ginamit ko na po ito way back 2years ago nung grumaduate ang mga pupils ko sa Grade VI. To prove I have my photo evidence sa FB po. Hindi lamang po natin ipartikular sa graduation.. irelate din natin ito kahit sa ibang aspekto ng buhay. Tanong ko po sa aking ina nung bata po ako, "bakit ang mga kaklase ko po malimit ang kanilang pagkain pork chop, maling, hotdog?,... tayo po malimit lagi na lang gulay samantalang nasa abroad naman po si dadey", dadey po kasi ang tawag ko sa father ko... Bihira pong may nakahapag na masarap na ulam sa amin... yun po ang pakiramdam ko... which is marahil marami sa inyo ganuon din... at kapag nagigipit na sa budget ang mother ko po dahil hindi naman po ganuon kalakihan ang sweldo ng mga teachers... nilagang talbos ng kamote ang ulam po namin. Pahihingiin nya po kmi sa kapitbahay naming may tanim nuon at paliwanag nya po sa aming mga anak... "kailangan nating magtiis at magtipid hindi porket nasa abroad ang ama ninyo puro na lang tayo pasarap." Pagtitiis, pagtitipid,... ang palakihin kami ng aming mga magulang na maging simple't may kababaang-loob na ang naging bunga ay ang maitawid kaming magkakapatid sa aming pag-aaral na mas higit pa sa halaga ng totoong ginto. At dahil sa pagtitipid na iyon mula sa kahoy at gigiray-giray na bahay... ito'y naging isang mainam at matibay na tirahan. Turo sa aming magkakapatid, magmahalan kayo at magtulungan. Gawing sandigan ang bawat isa, kung sakali mang may dumating na unos sa buhay ninyo. Gawing pamantayan sa buhay ang magkaroon ng may kababaang loob upang di maligaw ng landas at bukas palad, buong pusong walang pag-iimbot na tumulong sa kapwa kung kaya at may pagkakataon. Iba't ibang tao sa iba't ibang larangan ng buhay, iba't ibang pagsubok at karanasan sa katatagan ng loob, paninindigan at katapangan. Let me mention some.... Let's start with, Manny Pacquiao, siya'y naintriga... hindi raw sya nagbabayad ng buwis pero hindi siya nagpa-apekto until now patuloy pa rin siyang nagbibigay ng karangalan sa ating bansa sa pamamagitan ng pagpapatuloy pa rin sa pagsali sa larangan ng boxing. Cherise Pempengco.... nung umamin siyang siya ay nabibilang sa third sex o kung tawagin ay tomboy may mga humanga sa kanyang pagiging totoo ngunit hindi rin lahat... may mga bumatikos din... pero until now, very active pa rin siya sa larangan ng industriya sa pag-awit here in our country and even in abroad. Maging ang bansang Pilipinas ay nasadlak din sa malalaking pagsubok at paghamon sa katatagan ng loob ng bawat Pilipino. Mga sunud-sunod na unos .. nandiyan ang lindol, storm surge... super typhoon. Naaalala nyo pa ba yung bagyong Yolanda?... ang iba't ibang bansa, sa iba't ibang panig ng mundo... isinantabi muna nila at kinalimutan ang mga alitang namamagitan. Sila'y nagkaisa at tayo'y tinulungan... sambayanang Pilipino nagkaisa't nagtulungan din. Share ko rin ang buhay ng isa kong pupil at the same time trainor/coach nya ako sa journalism. May isang malaking unos din siyang kinaharap... ang kanyang ina'y pumanaw sa sakit na cancer and that was happen only last year. With all the support and love from her family and friends... ni hindi ito naging hadlang upang panghinaan siya ng loob... hindi siya sumuko, nanatili siyang naging matatag... ni sumagi sa kanyang isipan... hindi niya naisip na kami ay kanyang iwan... nanatili siyang kasali ng broadcasting team ko po. Dumako naman po tayo sa istorya ng aking buhay. Alam nyo po ba nang aking banggitin sa aking asawa... na ako po ang magiging speaker sa araw ng inyong pagtatapos, biro nya sa akin,... "bakit ikaw! wala na ba silang makuhang speaker", pang-aasar nya sa akin. Depensa ko po naman agad, "excuse me! wag mong gawing biro yan..... biro... na wala na silang makuhang guest speaker... Bakit?! paano mo bibigyang kahulugan na ang isang tao ay matagumpay? alin?,.... ang mga nasa abroad.... those earning dollars o yung may mga malalaking kita? porket di hamak na teacher lamang ako... baka nalilimutan mo... ikaw man ay isang teacher din." Sa katunayan... mapalad ang school natin... dahil nasusubaybayan nila ang bawat buhay sa karamihan ng kanilang mga naging mag-aaral. Sa bawat yugto ng kanilang narating ala-ala ng bawat mag-aral na nagsipagtapos na hangad sa kanilang pagbabalik ay ang lubos at kagalakang makapag-bahagi at makapaghatid tulong sa ating alma matter maliit man o malaking tulong. Another personal experience... problema ko po ang computer sa broadcasting team ko po... wala po kaming magamit... hindi ko po tinuring na kalaban sa kompetisyon sa journalism ang Garita. Masayang-masaya rin po ako kapag nananalo ang Garita... produkto po kaya ako ng Garita. I personally followed up and testified to my sister na badly needed ang computer sa bawat school. Sabi ko sa kanya, "malaking tulong yang computer na idodonate nyo po sa Garita... paniyak malaking tulong yan sa journalism nila." We have our struggle for not having the computer in our journalism team and yet I still have the spirit and happiness to help our alma matter simply because I also love Garita. Buhay ay masalimuot... Minsa'y malungkot minsa'y masaya. Struggles, trials, humiliations, discreminations, treated biasly... misjudge... misinterpreted... Most of the time, naranasan ko po iyan mula pagkabata hanggang ngayon.To the point in my life... I'm almost about to give up and even my faith is being tested. Before... I thought... hindi ko na magagamit ang una kong kinuhang kurso... ang Mass Communication. Naging Mass Komportable po ako sa bahay... ang tagal kong nawalan ng trabaho.... natigil sa bahay... nahirapang maghanap at matanggap sa isang trabaho... for some reasons.... Then one day, it came to a point in my life in my good sense of realizations... ayaw ko ng ganito... hindi ganito ang buhay na ginusto ko lalo na sa mga plinano ko... that's why I decided to take my second Degree Course. 2 Bachelor Degree diplomas, the first one... Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication and the other one Bachelor of Elementary Education with a Concentration in English. I never wanted of becoming a teacher someday. Marahil nadala po ako sa aking ina... lagi po kaming nauwi ng nanay ko ng gabing-gabi na po. Kailangan daw tapusin niya ang school work nya po. Ang kaso po, pati sa bahay lesson planning pa rin po. Sabi ko po nuon sa aking sarili sa aking isipan na sana umuwi na lang kami ng aking ina ng maaga . Sa bahay na lang sana niya ginawa ang lahat ng kaniyang trabaho. Ni ultimo sa pagtulog, very late ng matulog ang nanay ko... listening to radio station DZRH while writing her lesson plan. Na ngayon ko lang naisip at napagtanto kung bakit malimit hirap akong gumising ng maaga nuon. Ngayon ko lang narealized ako rin pala'y napupuyat din sa paghihintay sa kanya... marahil na rin sa kagustuhan kong makasabay siya sa aking pagtulog... at katabing kayakap sa magdamag... Then as early as 3am in the morning... malalaman kong gising na pala siya kasabay ng walang patumanggang pagsusulat na naman... ng lesson plan pa rin as usual... Awa po ang aking naramdaman para sa aking ina... na hindi ko lamang po ito masabi sa kanya. Parang tila bang wala nang katapusang pagsusulat... Everyday po iyon... na ganuon po ang set up ng buhay namin... Ang siste po nito... mas gabi pa po pala kaming nauwi ngayon ng aking asawa mula sa school pauwi ng bahay... kumpara sa oras ng uwi namin nuon ng aking ina. Wala po pala akong pinagkaiba sa aking ina. I just realized... nagmana po pala ako sa kanya... and it simply because unknowingly i just followed her footsteps... we're both simply dedicated... We intensely devote our time.... do our works passionately, our duties... and responsibilities... Ang gusto ko po ay ang maging isang duktor ngunit hindi po ito kaya ng aking mga magulang mahal po ang magpa-aral ng duktor. Umisip po ako ng paraan upang ma-inspire ko ang aking sarili kung anong ibang alternatibong kurso ang maaari kong kunin na kung saan ay yung kakayanin akong matustusan sa aking pag-aaral. Before, I was once a staffer of our Science Journal... one of our School Publications here in Garita. Hanggang sa ipagpatuloy ko sa high school..."Ang Cavitenian" sa Filipino School Publication ... that's why I decided to get the Mass Communication. Yung unang kursong akala ko useless na... ngayon pala ay magagamit ko pa rin... 2 courses... dual purpose. A teacher... and at the same time... a coach/trainor in the field of Journalism. To be a teacher is not that easy... to let our pupils know and realized that education is important... to make them believe... that education is a continuous learning.... continuous journey... a lifelong learning... and to make them feel wanting and yearning for more wisdom and knowledge. Life is a SERIES OF PROBLEMS. Every time!, you solve one, another is waiting to take its place... hindi pa tapos ang isang problema meron na pong kasunod... God has a purpose behind every problem. HE uses CIRCUMSTANCES to develop our CHARACTER, to make us LIKE JESUS . We face circumstances 24hours a day... and no one is immune to pain or isolated from suffering... and no one is exempted to a LIFE PROBLEM-FREE. God uses problems to draw you closer to Himself. IT IS DURING SUFFERING THAT WE LEARN TO PRAY OUR MOST AUTHENTIC, HEARTFELT, HONEST-TO-GOD PRAYERS. Do you believe?, EVERY Day of your life... it was written on GOd's calendar..., EVERYTHING! that happens to you has spiritual significance. According from the Bible; - Romans Chapter 8 Verses 28-29 "We know that God causes everthing... to work together... for the good of those who love God... and are called according to his purpose for them. For God knew his people in advance... and He chose them to become like his Son." God's plan for your life... involves!... all that happens to you... -including your mistakes, your sins and your hurts. It also includes illnessess, debt, disasters, separations, and worst loss of our loved ones. Not separately or independently. The events in your life work together in God's Plan. Example, to bake a cake you must use flour, salt, raw eggs, sugar and oil. But, if you will going to eat the ingredients individually, each is pretty distasteful or even bitter. But bake them together and they become delicious. IF YOU WILL GIVE GOD ALL YOUR DISTASTEFUL, UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCES... HE WILL BLEND THEM TOGETHER FOR GOOD. God's purpose is greater than our problems, our pain or sufferrings. Since God intends to make you like Jesus, he will take you through the same experiences... Loneliness, temptation, stress, criticism, rejections and many other problems... all of these Jesus experienced and He went through. Problems don't automatically produce of what God intends. Many people become bitter, rather than better, and never grow up. Remember... that God's plan is good. God knows what is best for us.. Every problem is a Character-Building Opportunity and the more difficult it is the Greater the Potential for building Spiritual Muscle... and Moral Fiber. Through these Troubles... it produce our PATIENCE... PATIENCE produces CHARACTER and Circumstances are Temporary but your CHARACTER will Last Forever. Don't forget, there is a purpose behind every problem... Use the pains to make you stronger... use the suffering to open and widen your minds... every situations and problems use it to soften your heart... to make you to be able and willing to help at all times without any hesitations and expectations, or at least willing to listen... to the sigh of others.... For each and every one,... in getting through to the new chapter of your life... Be the Tool of Inspirations and Be the Instrument of Courage to pursue dreams and goals. Just have faith... and let God be the driver of your life. Dream big!...aim high!... Never give up!.... then HIT! the bull's eye!... Once again, a high spirited Garitarians! I am very happy and proud to all of you... Congratulations! Garita Batch 2014! MABUHAY KAYONG LAHAT!

Republic of the Philippines Department of Education Tanggapan ng Kalihim Office of the Secretary MENSAHE Mainit na pagbati sa lahat ng ating mga magsisipagtapos, at sa lahat ng tagapamahala at kawani ng paraan, mga guro, at mga magulang n Read more ...
a tumulong at patuloy na gumagabay sa ating kabataan para makarating sila sa mahalagang puntong ito ng kanilang buday. Ang araw na ito ay isang patunay ng katatagan at kakayahan ng bawat Pilipino na muling bumangon matapos ang matitinding unos. Sa pamamagitan ng pagbibigay ng liwanag sa bawat isa sa oras ng kadiliman, napatunayan natin na anumang hamon ang dumating ay ating kakayanin. Sa gitna ng maraming pagsubok na ating hinaharap, hindi maiiwasan ng iba na isiping sumuko na lamang. Subalit sadyang matibay ang pusong Pilipino - hindi nagpapatinag ng kahit anong pagsubok -dahil sa oras ng karimlan ay nakakakita pa rin tayo ng sinag ng pag asa mula sa pagtitiwala at kasiyahan na ibinabahagi natin sa isa't isa. Sa mga ganitong panahon, maaaring tayo ay nagalusan ngunit hindi kailanman nagpatalo. Mga magsisipagtapos, ako ay umaasa na ang temang "Hindi Natitinag ang Pusong Pilipino" ay tumatarak sa inyong kaisipan at magbigay ng inspirasyon para makamit n'yo ang inyong naisin sa kabila ng mga hamon na darating -hindi lamang para sa sarili kundi para sa kapwa, at higit sa lahat para sa bayan. Para sa ating mga nasa paaralan, ito nawa'y magsilbing isang institusyon. Umaasa akong patuloy nating maibigay ang nararapat sa ating kabataan. Muli, binabati ko ang mga magsisipagtapos. Hangad ko ang inyong tagumpay. Mabuhay ang lahing Pilipino! Mabuhay kayong lahat! BR. ARMIN A. LUSITRO FSC Secretary

I just want to share it... My speech as guest speaker for 60th Commencement Rites of Garita Elementary School Batch 2014 (March 28/9AM) 24 years had passed wayback year 1990 to reminisce the important event for each child of this batch as their one Read more ...
of their very special event in their life their Graduation Rites! Alam nyo po, may isang batang!... kabilang... sa naturang mga magsisipagtapos ng taong yaon? Namutawi sa kanyang isipan at kanyang tinuring sa kanyang sarili habang nakikinig din sa panauhing pandangal nila, "sana balang-araw babalik ako sa aking alma matter at sa aking muling pagbabalik ako naman na ang nakatayo sa harapan ng maraming batang mag-aaral na magsisipagtapos upang makapagbigay naman ng mensahe at makapaghatid inspirasyon sa bawat isa. And this child that I am saying is now the person standing here infront of you right now. Last month when Ma'am Sanada told me and asked permission from me sabi nya, "pwede ka ba naming maging speaker Nel? " My surprised replied questions immediately, "ako po? saan po ako mag-i speaker, are you sure po? " O diba, sinagot ko si Ma'am ng mga sunud-sunod na katanungan. She reply immediately also, "oo ikaw nga! as in sure na sure! wala ng iba pa!" "Ano pong event yan Ma'am?", sadyang di po talaga ako makapaniwala. "Sa Graduation Day!", sabi ni Mam... Medyo natigilan po ako... maybe i spent for about 5 seconds of silence... for having my deep sense of thought and feelings for not believing instantly from what I've heard. Nagtanong pa ulit ako kay Ma'am na may halong flattered feeling na,... "really? as in po Ma'am?" Kaya ang segue naman po ni Ma'am Suarez, "oo nga!... ikaw nga Arnelia!" Kasunod na sinabi naman ni Mam Sanada sa akin, "diba ikaw si Arnelia Escano Lagarile!" paniniguro ni Ma'am sa akin. With full of humbleness... I answered... "Sige po Ma'am." Honestly speaking, aaminin ko po sa inyo bakit di po ako nakasagot agad kay Ma'am I just had a very quick thinking and asking myself "WHY ME?" Samantalang wala pa naman ako sa rurok ng tagumpay, pero sinagot din ako agad ng aking sarili... "hindi ba dapat matuwa ka? at higit sa lahat you must be proud of yourself"... kaya ayun po. Hanggang sa makauwi ako hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala. Since then, I never stop searching, looking and hoping na sana may irelease nang info ang Deped sa internet regarding about the Theme for Graduation and fortunately, voila! presto! immediate answered prayer po... it took me 3days only to look for. Kaya ang sabi ko po sa aking sarili, "kaya ako siguro ang napili nila Ma'am maybe related sa akin ang theme." "HINDI NATITINAG ANG PUSONG PILIPINO." In line with this theme, according to our Education Secretary Br. Armin Luistro, "let us maintain the solemnity of our graduation by remaining frugal and simple" What is frugal? Frugal means... economical or thrifty.... matipid in tagalog. Alam nyo po ba... itong aking kasuotan ngayon ay ginamit ko na po ito way back 2years ago nung grumaduate ang mga pupils ko sa Grade VI. To prove I have my photo evidence sa FB po. Hindi lamang po natin ipartikular sa graduation.. irelate din natin ito kahit sa ibang aspekto ng buhay. Tanong ko po sa aking ina nung bata po ako, "bakit ang mga kaklase ko po malimit ang kanilang pagkain pork chop, maling, hotdog?,... tayo po malimit lagi na lang gulay samantalang nasa abroad naman po si dadey", dadey po kasi ang tawag ko sa father ko... Bihira pong may nakahapag na masarap na ulam sa amin... yun po ang pakiramdam ko... which is marahil marami sa inyo ganuon din... at kapag nagigipit na sa budget ang mother ko po dahil hindi naman po ganuon kalakihan ang sweldo ng mga teachers... nilagang talbos ng kamote ang ulam po namin. Pahihingiin nya po kmi sa kapitbahay naming may tanim nuon at paliwanag nya po sa aming mga anak... "kailangan nating magtiis at magtipid hindi porket nasa abroad ang ama ninyo puro na lang tayo pasarap." Pagtitiis, pagtitipid,... ang palakihin kami ng aming mga magulang na maging simple't may kababaang-loob na ang naging bunga ay ang maitawid kaming magkakapatid sa aming pag-aaral na mas higit pa sa halaga ng totoong ginto. At dahil sa pagtitipid na iyon mula sa kahoy at gigiray-giray na bahay... ito'y naging isang mainam at matibay na tirahan. Turo sa aming magkakapatid, magmahalan kayo at magtulungan. Gawing sandigan ang bawat isa, kung sakali mang may dumating na unos sa buhay ninyo. Gawing pamantayan sa buhay ang magkaroon ng may kababaang loob upang di maligaw ng landas at bukas palad, buong pusong walang pag-iimbot na tumulong sa kapwa kung kaya at may pagkakataon. Iba't ibang tao sa iba't ibang larangan ng buhay, iba't ibang pagsubok at karanasan sa katatagan ng loob, paninindigan at katapangan. Let me mention some.... Let's start with, Manny Pacquiao, siya'y naintriga... hindi raw sya nagbabayad ng buwis pero hindi siya nagpa-apekto until now patuloy pa rin siyang nagbibigay ng karangalan sa ating bansa sa pamamagitan ng pagpapatuloy pa rin sa pagsali sa larangan ng boxing. Cherise Pempengco.... nung umamin siyang siya ay nabibilang sa third sex o kung tawagin ay tomboy may mga humanga sa kanyang pagiging totoo ngunit hindi rin lahat... may mga bumatikos din... pero until now, very active pa rin siya sa larangan ng industriya sa pag-awit here in our country and even in abroad. Maging ang bansang Pilipinas ay nasadlak din sa malalaking pagsubok at paghamon sa katatagan ng loob ng bawat Pilipino. Mga sunud-sunod na unos .. nandiyan ang lindol, storm surge... super typhoon. Naaalala nyo pa ba yung bagyong Yolanda?... ang iba't ibang bansa, sa iba't ibang panig ng mundo... isinantabi muna nila at kinalimutan ang mga alitang namamagitan. Sila'y nagkaisa at tayo'y tinulungan... sambayanang Pilipino nagkaisa't nagtulungan din. Share ko rin ang buhay ng isa kong pupil at the same time trainor/coach nya ako sa journalism. May isang malaking unos din siyang kinaharap... ang kanyang ina'y pumanaw sa sakit na cancer and that was happen only last year. With all the support and love from her family and friends... ni hindi ito naging hadlang upang panghinaan siya ng loob... hindi siya sumuko, nanatili siyang naging matatag... ni sumagi sa kanyang isipan... hindi niya naisip na kami ay kanyang iwan... nanatili siyang kasali ng broadcasting team ko po. Dumako naman po tayo sa istorya ng aking buhay. Alam nyo po ba nang aking banggitin sa aking asawa... na ako po ang magiging speaker sa araw ng inyong pagtatapos, biro nya sa akin,... "bakit ikaw! wala na ba silang makuhang speaker", pang-aasar nya sa akin. Depensa ko po naman agad, "excuse me! wag mong gawing biro yan..... biro... na wala na silang makuhang guest speaker... Bakit?! paano mo bibigyang kahulugan na ang isang tao ay matagumpay? alin?,.... ang mga nasa abroad.... those earning dollars o yung may mga malalaking kita? porket di hamak na teacher lamang ako... baka nalilimutan mo... ikaw man ay isang teacher din." Sa katunayan... mapalad ang school natin... dahil nasusubaybayan nila ang bawat buhay sa karamihan ng kanilang mga naging mag-aaral. Sa bawat yugto ng kanilang narating ala-ala ng bawat mag-aral na nagsipagtapos na hangad sa kanilang pagbabalik ay ang lubos at kagalakang makapag-bahagi at makapaghatid tulong sa ating alma matter maliit man o malaking tulong. Another personal experience... problema ko po ang computer sa broadcasting team ko po... wala po kaming magamit... hindi ko po tinuring na kalaban sa kompetisyon sa journalism ang Garita. Masayang-masaya rin po ako kapag nananalo ang Garita... produkto po kaya ako ng Garita. I personally followed up and testified to my sister na badly needed ang computer sa bawat school. Sabi ko sa kanya, "malaking tulong yang computer na idodonate nyo po sa Garita... paniyak malaking tulong yan sa journalism nila." We have our struggle for not having the computer in our journalism team and yet I still have the spirit and happiness to help our alma matter simply because I also love Garita. Buhay ay masalimuot... Minsa'y malungkot minsa'y masaya. Struggles, trials, humiliations, discreminations, treated biasly... misjudge... misinterpreted... Most of the time, naranasan ko po iyan mula pagkabata hanggang ngayon.To the point in my life... I'm almost about to give up and even my faith is being tested. Before... I thought... hindi ko na magagamit ang una kong kinuhang kurso... ang Mass Communication. Naging Mass Komportable po ako sa bahay... ang tagal kong nawalan ng trabaho.... natigil sa bahay... nahirapang maghanap at matanggap sa isang trabaho... for some reasons.... Then one day, it came to a point in my life in my good sense of realizations... ayaw ko ng ganito... hindi ganito ang buhay na ginusto ko lalo na sa mga plinano ko... that's why I decided to take my second Degree Course. 2 Bachelor Degree diplomas, the first one... Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication and the other one Bachelor of Elementary Education with a Concentration in English. I never wanted of becoming a teacher someday. Marahil nadala po ako sa aking ina... lagi po kaming nauwi ng nanay ko ng gabing-gabi na po. Kailangan daw tapusin niya ang school work nya po. Ang kaso po, pati sa bahay lesson planning pa rin po. Sabi ko po nuon sa aking sarili sa aking isipan na sana umuwi na lang kami ng aking ina ng maaga . Sa bahay na lang sana niya ginawa ang lahat ng kaniyang trabaho. Ni ultimo sa pagtulog, very late ng matulog ang nanay ko... listening to radio station DZRH while writing her lesson plan. Na ngayon ko lang naisip at napagtanto kung bakit malimit hirap akong gumising ng maaga nuon. Ngayon ko lang narealized ako rin pala'y napupuyat din sa paghihintay sa kanya... marahil na rin sa kagustuhan kong makasabay siya sa aking pagtulog... at katabing kayakap sa magdamag... Then as early as 3am in the morning... malalaman kong gising na pala siya kasabay ng walang patumanggang pagsusulat na naman... ng lesson plan pa rin as usual... Awa po ang aking naramdaman para sa aking ina... na hindi ko lamang po ito masabi sa kanya. Parang tila bang wala nang katapusang pagsusulat... Everyday po iyon... na ganuon po ang set up ng buhay namin... Ang siste po nito... mas gabi pa po pala kaming nauwi ngayon ng aking asawa mula sa school pauwi ng bahay... kumpara sa oras ng uwi namin nuon ng aking ina. Wala po pala akong pinagkaiba sa aking ina. I just realized... nagmana po pala ako sa kanya... and it simply because unknowingly i just followed her footsteps... we're both simply dedicated... We intensely devote our time.... do our works passionately, our duties... and responsibilities... Ang gusto ko po ay ang maging isang duktor ngunit hindi po ito kaya ng aking mga magulang mahal po ang magpa-aral ng duktor. Umisip po ako ng paraan upang ma-inspire ko ang aking sarili kung anong ibang alternatibong kurso ang maaari kong kunin na kung saan ay yung kakayanin akong matustusan sa aking pag-aaral. Before, I was once a staffer of our Science Journal... one of our School Publications here in Garita. Hanggang sa ipagpatuloy ko sa high school..."Ang Cavitenian" sa Filipino School Publication ... that's why I decided to get the Mass Communication. Yung unang kursong akala ko useless na... ngayon pala ay magagamit ko pa rin... 2 courses... dual purpose. A teacher... and at the same time... a coach/trainor in the field of Journalism. To be a teacher is not that easy... to let our pupils know and realized that education is important... to make them believe... that education is a continuous learning.... continuous journey... a lifelong learning... and to make them feel wanting and yearning for more wisdom and knowledge. Life is a SERIES OF PROBLEMS. Every time!, you solve one, another is waiting to take its place... hindi pa tapos ang isang problema meron na pong kasunod... God has a purpose behind every problem. HE uses CIRCUMSTANCES to develop our CHARACTER, to make us LIKE JESUS . We face circumstances 24hours a day... and no one is immune to pain or isolated from suffering... and no one is exempted to a LIFE PROBLEM-FREE. God uses problems to draw you closer to Himself. IT IS DURING SUFFERING THAT WE LEARN TO PRAY OUR MOST AUTHENTIC, HEARTFELT, HONEST-TO-GOD PRAYERS. Do you believe?, EVERY Day of your life... it was written on GOd's calendar..., EVERYTHING! that happens to you has spiritual significance. According from the Bible; - Romans Chapter 8 Verses 28-29 "We know that God causes everthing... to work together... for the good of those who love God... and are called according to his purpose for them. For God knew his people in advance... and He chose them to become like his Son." God's plan for your life... involves!... all that happens to you... -including your mistakes, your sins and your hurts. It also includes illnessess, debt, disasters, separations, and worst loss of our loved ones. Not separately or independently. The events in your life work together in God's Plan. Example, to bake a cake you must use flour, salt, raw eggs, sugar and oil. But, if you will going to eat the ingredients individually, each is pretty distasteful or even bitter. But bake them together and they become delicious. IF YOU WILL GIVE GOD ALL YOUR DISTASTEFUL, UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCES... HE WILL BLEND THEM TOGETHER FOR GOOD. God's purpose is greater than our problems, our pain or sufferrings. Since God intends to make you like Jesus, he will take you through the same experiences... Loneliness, temptation, stress, criticism, rejections and many other problems... all of these Jesus experienced and He went through. Problems don't automatically produce of what God intends. Many people become bitter, rather than better, and never grow up. Remember... that God's plan is good. God knows what is best for us.. Every problem is a Character-Building Opportunity and the more difficult it is the Greater the Potential for building Spiritual Muscle... and Moral Fiber. Through these Troubles... it produce our PATIENCE... PATIENCE produces CHARACTER and Circumstances are Temporary but your CHARACTER will Last Forever. Don't forget, there is a purpose behind every problem... Use the pains to make you stronger... use the suffering to open and widen your minds... every situations and problems use it to soften your heart... to make you to be able and willing to help at all times without any hesitations and expectations, or at least willing to listen... to the sigh of others.... For each and every one,... in getting through to the new chapter of your life... Be the Tool of Inspirations and Be the Instrument of Courage to pursue dreams and goals. Just have faith... and let God be the driver of your life. Dream big!...aim high!... Never give up!.... then HIT! the bull's eye!... Once again, a high spirited Garitarians! I am very happy and proud to all of you... Congratulations! Garita Batch 2014! MABUHAY KAYONG LAHAT!

I just want to share it... My speech as guest speaker for 60th Commencement Rites of Garita Elementary School Batch 2014 (March 28/9AM) 24 years had passed wayback year 1990 to reminisce the important event for each child of this batch as their one Read more ...
of their very special event in their life their Graduation Rites! Alam nyo po, may isang batang!... kabilang... sa naturang mga magsisipagtapos ng taong yaon? Namutawi sa kanyang isipan at kanyang tinuring sa kanyang sarili habang nakikinig din sa panauhing pandangal nila, "sana balang-araw babalik ako sa aking alma matter at sa aking muling pagbabalik ako naman na ang nakatayo sa harapan ng maraming batang mag-aaral na magsisipagtapos upang makapagbigay naman ng mensahe at makapaghatid inspirasyon sa bawat isa. And this child that I am saying is now the person standing here infront of you right now. Last month when Ma'am Sanada told me and asked permission from me sabi nya, "pwede ka ba naming maging speaker Nel? " My surprised replied questions immediately, "ako po? saan po ako mag-i speaker, are you sure po? " O diba, sinagot ko si Ma'am ng mga sunud-sunod na katanungan. She reply immediately also, "oo ikaw nga! as in sure na sure! wala ng iba pa!" "Ano pong event yan Ma'am?", sadyang di po talaga ako makapaniwala. "Sa Graduation Day!", sabi ni Mam... Medyo natigilan po ako... maybe i spent for about 5 seconds of silence... for having my deep sense of thought and feelings for not believing instantly from what I've heard. Nagtanong pa ulit ako kay Ma'am na may halong flattered feeling na,... "really? as in po Ma'am?" Kaya ang segue naman po ni Ma'am Suarez, "oo nga!... ikaw nga Arnelia!" Kasunod na sinabi naman ni Mam Sanada sa akin, "diba ikaw si Arnelia Escano Lagarile!" paniniguro ni Ma'am sa akin. With full of humbleness... I answered... "Sige po Ma'am." Honestly speaking, aaminin ko po sa inyo bakit di po ako nakasagot agad kay Ma'am I just had a very quick thinking and asking myself "WHY ME?" Samantalang wala pa naman ako sa rurok ng tagumpay, pero sinagot din ako agad ng aking sarili... "hindi ba dapat matuwa ka? at higit sa lahat you must be proud of yourself"... kaya ayun po. Hanggang sa makauwi ako hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala. Since then, I never stop searching, looking and hoping na sana may irelease nang info ang Deped sa internet regarding about the Theme for Graduation and fortunately, voila! presto! immediate answered prayer po... it took me 3days only to look for. Kaya ang sabi ko po sa aking sarili, "kaya ako siguro ang napili nila Ma'am maybe related sa akin ang theme." "HINDI NATITINAG ANG PUSONG PILIPINO." In line with this theme, according to our Education Secretary Br. Armin Luistro, "let us maintain the solemnity of our graduation by remaining frugal and simple" What is frugal? Frugal means... economical or thrifty.... matipid in tagalog. Alam nyo po ba... itong aking kasuotan ngayon ay ginamit ko na po ito way back 2years ago nung grumaduate ang mga pupils ko sa Grade VI. To prove I have my photo evidence sa FB po. Hindi lamang po natin ipartikular sa graduation.. irelate din natin ito kahit sa ibang aspekto ng buhay. Tanong ko po sa aking ina nung bata po ako, "bakit ang mga kaklase ko po malimit ang kanilang pagkain pork chop, maling, hotdog?,... tayo po malimit lagi na lang gulay samantalang nasa abroad naman po si dadey", dadey po kasi ang tawag ko sa father ko... Bihira pong may nakahapag na masarap na ulam sa amin... yun po ang pakiramdam ko... which is marahil marami sa inyo ganuon din... at kapag nagigipit na sa budget ang mother ko po dahil hindi naman po ganuon kalakihan ang sweldo ng mga teachers... nilagang talbos ng kamote ang ulam po namin. Pahihingiin nya po kmi sa kapitbahay naming may tanim nuon at paliwanag nya po sa aming mga anak... "kailangan nating magtiis at magtipid hindi porket nasa abroad ang ama ninyo puro na lang tayo pasarap." Pagtitiis, pagtitipid,... ang palakihin kami ng aming mga magulang na maging simple't may kababaang-loob na ang naging bunga ay ang maitawid kaming magkakapatid sa aming pag-aaral na mas higit pa sa halaga ng totoong ginto. At dahil sa pagtitipid na iyon mula sa kahoy at gigiray-giray na bahay... ito'y naging isang mainam at matibay na tirahan. Turo sa aming magkakapatid, magmahalan kayo at magtulungan. Gawing sandigan ang bawat isa, kung sakali mang may dumating na unos sa buhay ninyo. Gawing pamantayan sa buhay ang magkaroon ng may kababaang loob upang di maligaw ng landas at bukas palad, buong pusong walang pag-iimbot na tumulong sa kapwa kung kaya at may pagkakataon. Iba't ibang tao sa iba't ibang larangan ng buhay, iba't ibang pagsubok at karanasan sa katatagan ng loob, paninindigan at katapangan. Let me mention some.... Let's start with, Manny Pacquiao, siya'y naintriga... hindi raw sya nagbabayad ng buwis pero hindi siya nagpa-apekto until now patuloy pa rin siyang nagbibigay ng karangalan sa ating bansa sa pamamagitan ng pagpapatuloy pa rin sa pagsali sa larangan ng boxing. Cherise Pempengco.... nung umamin siyang siya ay nabibilang sa third sex o kung tawagin ay tomboy may mga humanga sa kanyang pagiging totoo ngunit hindi rin lahat... may mga bumatikos din... pero until now, very active pa rin siya sa larangan ng industriya sa pag-awit here in our country and even in abroad. Maging ang bansang Pilipinas ay nasadlak din sa malalaking pagsubok at paghamon sa katatagan ng loob ng bawat Pilipino. Mga sunud-sunod na unos .. nandiyan ang lindol, storm surge... super typhoon. Naaalala nyo pa ba yung bagyong Yolanda?... ang iba't ibang bansa, sa iba't ibang panig ng mundo... isinantabi muna nila at kinalimutan ang mga alitang namamagitan. Sila'y nagkaisa at tayo'y tinulungan... sambayanang Pilipino nagkaisa't nagtulungan din. Share ko rin ang buhay ng isa kong pupil at the same time trainor/coach nya ako sa journalism. May isang malaking unos din siyang kinaharap... ang kanyang ina'y pumanaw sa sakit na cancer and that was happen only last year. With all the support and love from her family and friends... ni hindi ito naging hadlang upang panghinaan siya ng loob... hindi siya sumuko, nanatili siyang naging matatag... ni sumagi sa kanyang isipan... hindi niya naisip na kami ay kanyang iwan... nanatili siyang kasali ng broadcasting team ko po. Dumako naman po tayo sa istorya ng aking buhay. Alam nyo po ba nang aking banggitin sa aking asawa... na ako po ang magiging speaker sa araw ng inyong pagtatapos, biro nya sa akin,... "bakit ikaw! wala na ba silang makuhang speaker", pang-aasar nya sa akin. Depensa ko po naman agad, "excuse me! wag mong gawing biro yan..... biro... na wala na silang makuhang guest speaker... Bakit?! paano mo bibigyang kahulugan na ang isang tao ay matagumpay? alin?,.... ang mga nasa abroad.... those earning dollars o yung may mga malalaking kita? porket di hamak na teacher lamang ako... baka nalilimutan mo... ikaw man ay isang teacher din." Sa katunayan... mapalad ang school natin... dahil nasusubaybayan nila ang bawat buhay sa karamihan ng kanilang mga naging mag-aaral. Sa bawat yugto ng kanilang narating ala-ala ng bawat mag-aral na nagsipagtapos na hangad sa kanilang pagbabalik ay ang lubos at kagalakang makapag-bahagi at makapaghatid tulong sa ating alma matter maliit man o malaking tulong. Another personal experience... problema ko po ang computer sa broadcasting team ko po... wala po kaming magamit... hindi ko po tinuring na kalaban sa kompetisyon sa journalism ang Garita. Masayang-masaya rin po ako kapag nananalo ang Garita... produkto po kaya ako ng Garita. I personally followed up and testified to my sister na badly needed ang computer sa bawat school. Sabi ko sa kanya, "malaking tulong yang computer na idodonate nyo po sa Garita... paniyak malaking tulong yan sa journalism nila." We have our struggle for not having the computer in our journalism team and yet I still have the spirit and happiness to help our alma matter simply because I also love Garita. Buhay ay masalimuot... Minsa'y malungkot minsa'y masaya. Struggles, trials, humiliations, discreminations, treated biasly... misjudge... misinterpreted... Most of the time, naranasan ko po iyan mula pagkabata hanggang ngayon.To the point in my life... I'm almost about to give up and even my faith is being tested. Before... I thought... hindi ko na magagamit ang una kong kinuhang kurso... ang Mass Communication. Naging Mass Komportable po ako sa bahay... ang tagal kong nawalan ng trabaho.... natigil sa bahay... nahirapang maghanap at matanggap sa isang trabaho... for some reasons.... Then one day, it came to a point in my life in my good sense of realizations... ayaw ko ng ganito... hindi ganito ang buhay na ginusto ko lalo na sa mga plinano ko... that's why I decided to take my second Degree Course. 2 Bachelor Degree diplomas, the first one... Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication and the other one Bachelor of Elementary Education with a Concentration in English. I never wanted of becoming a teacher someday. Marahil nadala po ako sa aking ina... lagi po kaming nauwi ng nanay ko ng gabing-gabi na po. Kailangan daw tapusin niya ang school work nya po. Ang kaso po, pati sa bahay lesson planning pa rin po. Sabi ko po nuon sa aking sarili sa aking isipan na sana umuwi na lang kami ng aking ina ng maaga . Sa bahay na lang sana niya ginawa ang lahat ng kaniyang trabaho. Ni ultimo sa pagtulog, very late ng matulog ang nanay ko... listening to radio station DZRH while writing her lesson plan. Na ngayon ko lang naisip at napagtanto kung bakit malimit hirap akong gumising ng maaga nuon. Ngayon ko lang narealized ako rin pala'y napupuyat din sa paghihintay sa kanya... marahil na rin sa kagustuhan kong makasabay siya sa aking pagtulog... at katabing kayakap sa magdamag... Then as early as 3am in the morning... malalaman kong gising na pala siya kasabay ng walang patumanggang pagsusulat na naman... ng lesson plan pa rin as usual... Awa po ang aking naramdaman para sa aking ina... na hindi ko lamang po ito masabi sa kanya. Parang tila bang wala nang katapusang pagsusulat... Everyday po iyon... na ganuon po ang set up ng buhay namin... Ang siste po nito... mas gabi pa po pala kaming nauwi ngayon ng aking asawa mula sa school pauwi ng bahay... kumpara sa oras ng uwi namin nuon ng aking ina. Wala po pala akong pinagkaiba sa aking ina. I just realized... nagmana po pala ako sa kanya... and it simply because unknowingly i just followed her footsteps... we're both simply dedicated... We intensely devote our time.... do our works passionately, our duties... and responsibilities... Ang gusto ko po ay ang maging isang duktor ngunit hindi po ito kaya ng aking mga magulang mahal po ang magpa-aral ng duktor. Umisip po ako ng paraan upang ma-inspire ko ang aking sarili kung anong ibang alternatibong kurso ang maaari kong kunin na kung saan ay yung kakayanin akong matustusan sa aking pag-aaral. Before, I was once a staffer of our Science Journal... one of our School Publications here in Garita. Hanggang sa ipagpatuloy ko sa high school..."Ang Cavitenian" sa Filipino School Publication ... that's why I decided to get the Mass Communication. Yung unang kursong akala ko useless na... ngayon pala ay magagamit ko pa rin... 2 courses... dual purpose. A teacher... and at the same time... a coach/trainor in the field of Journalism. To be a teacher is not that easy... to let our pupils know and realized that education is important... to make them believe... that education is a continuous learning.... continuous journey... a lifelong learning... and to make them feel wanting and yearning for more wisdom and knowledge. Life is a SERIES OF PROBLEMS. Every time!, you solve one, another is waiting to take its place... hindi pa tapos ang isang problema meron na pong kasunod... God has a purpose behind every problem. HE uses CIRCUMSTANCES to develop our CHARACTER, to make us LIKE JESUS . We face circumstances 24hours a day... and no one is immune to pain or isolated from suffering... and no one is exempted to a LIFE PROBLEM-FREE. God uses problems to draw you closer to Himself. IT IS DURING SUFFERING THAT WE LEARN TO PRAY OUR MOST AUTHENTIC, HEARTFELT, HONEST-TO-GOD PRAYERS. Do you believe?, EVERY Day of your life... it was written on GOd's calendar..., EVERYTHING! that happens to you has spiritual significance. According from the Bible; - Romans Chapter 8 Verses 28-29 "We know that God causes everthing... to work together... for the good of those who love God... and are called according to his purpose for them. For God knew his people in advance... and He chose them to become like his Son." God's plan for your life... involves!... all that happens to you... -including your mistakes, your sins and your hurts. It also includes illnessess, debt, disasters, separations, and worst loss of our loved ones. Not separately or independently. The events in your life work together in God's Plan. Example, to bake a cake you must use flour, salt, raw eggs, sugar and oil. But, if you will going to eat the ingredients individually, each is pretty distasteful or even bitter. But bake them together and they become delicious. IF YOU WILL GIVE GOD ALL YOUR DISTASTEFUL, UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCES... HE WILL BLEND THEM TOGETHER FOR GOOD. God's purpose is greater than our problems, our pain or sufferrings. Since God intends to make you like Jesus, he will take you through the same experiences... Loneliness, temptation, stress, criticism, rejections and many other problems... all of these Jesus experienced and He went through. Problems don't automatically produce of what God intends. Many people become bitter, rather than better, and never grow up. Remember... that God's plan is good. God knows what is best for us.. Every problem is a Character-Building Opportunity and the more difficult it is the Greater the Potential for building Spiritual Muscle... and Moral Fiber. Through these Troubles... it produce our PATIENCE... PATIENCE produces CHARACTER and Circumstances are Temporary but your CHARACTER will Last Forever. Don't forget, there is a purpose behind every problem... Use the pains to make you stronger... use the suffering to open and widen your minds... every situations and problems use it to soften your heart... to make you to be able and willing to help at all times without any hesitations and expectations, or at least willing to listen... to the sigh of others.... For each and every one,... in getting through to the new chapter of your life... Be the Tool of Inspirations and Be the Instrument of Courage to pursue dreams and goals. Just have faith... and let God be the driver of your life. Dream big!...aim high!... Never give up!.... then HIT! the bull's eye!... Once again, a high spirited Garitarians! I am very happy and proud to all of you... Congratulations! Garita Batch 2014! MABUHAY KAYONG LAHAT!

rch 27, 2014 Dear Graduates : FOREWORD Ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinangalingan ay hindi makakarating sa paroroonan ako ay lumingon sa aking pinangalingan sapagkat ako ay galing dito. Pansinin pakinggan nyo naman ako. Sa aking paglingon ngayon ay ang takda sa aking pagbabalik mula sa aking paglalakbay . dala ko sa paaralang ito ay ang aking pangako at pangarap na donasyon. Ito ay ang isang kapirasong kahoy at isang lata ng pintura at isang kilong pako. Kung hindi ko naibibigay ang mga material na bagay na ito, sa aking pagsasalita ngayon ay tutumbasan ko ng haligi ng buhay, na magsisilibing pondasyon, at ang pintura upang magkakaroon ng kulay; ang mga pako upang kumapit kayo sa inyong mga prinsipyo at pangarap. Ang kapirasong kahoy, ang pintura at ang mga pako na ito ay kasama ninyo ako sa pagpapanday ng inyong buhay. Hindi natitinag ang pusong Filipino ay ang tema sa taong ito. KAHIT GUMUHO AT NAGKABITAK-BITAK ANG LUPA SA BOHOL AT NAWASAK HALOS ANG BUONG LUNGSOD NG TACLOBAN LEYTE AT NASUNOG HALOS ANG BUONG LUNGSOD NG ZAMBOANGA AY TULOY PA RIN ANG BUHAY NG MGA PILIPINO KAILANGAN LANG MAGIGING MATATAG. KAILANGAN LANG NATIN UMASA KALAKIP ANG PANINIWALA NA ANG LAHAT NG MGA PAGSUBOK NA TUMAMA SA ATING BANSA at SA ATING BUHAY AT ATING MAPAGTAGUMPAYAN. Ngayon may sasabihin aking tatlong kwento. Yong ang totoo. Tatlong kwento LANG. Ang unang kwento ay ang motorsiklo: Nag-umpisa ito sa isang sayawan sa isang karating bayan ng aking ama. Dala ng aking ama ang kanyang motorsiklo . Isa siya sa mga binata noon sa kanilang lugar na may motorsiklo. May nakita ang aking ama ng napakagandang dilag at ito ay gusto sana niyang lapitan at aanyahang makaparehang sumayaw . Ang magandang dalaga ay ang aking ina. Subalit hindi basta makalapit lapit ang aking ama dahil marami ring ang nagtatangkang isayaw ang magandang dilag. Upang hindi tuluyan makalapit ang mga kaibigan ng aking ama ay tinakot na nya ang kanyang mga kaibigan . Hanggang sa nakapareha rin ng aking ama ang dilag na ito . Ng walang patumpik tumpik ay sinabi ng aking ama ay pupunta raw siya sa bahay ng magandang dilag na ito upang mamamanhikan agad. Sa loob ng 3 araw na paghahanda ng pamilya ng aking ama tumungo sila sa bayan ng aking ina. Nauna na ang mga magulang ng aking ama at kapatid nya subalit siya ay sakay ng kanyang motorsiklo. Pinagusapan ang tungkol sa kasal at sila ay kinasal sa loob ng 2 araw mula ng namamanhikan ang aking ama. Ang magandang dilag ay pumayag na magpakasal na may mga kondisyon. Ang maganding dilag ay bago pa nakapag-graduate ng high school. Siya raw ay magpapatuloy sa pag-aaral na ang gagastos ay ang pamilya ng aking ama. At ganon din ang aking ama ay magpapatuloy sa kanyang pag-aaral . Pagkatapos nilang ikinasal, kinaumagahan ay tumungo sila sa bayan ng aking ama. Ito ay sa kabilang probinsya. Lumipas ang isang taon ako ay pinanganak . Nagpapatuloy sa pag-aaral ang aking ina sa kolehiyo at aking ama sa hayskul. Dumaan sa hirap ang aking mga magulang. Sila ay sabay sabay na pinag-aral ng aking lolo kasama pa ang dalawang kapatid na babae ng aking ama. Minsan kulang kulang ang bigas na ipinapadala sa aking mga magulang ng aking ama. Minsan ito ang pinanggalingan ng gulo ng mga kapatid ng aking ama sapagkat nagseselos ang mga kapatid ng aking ama sa aking mga magulang dahil sila ay pinapaaral ng sabay ng aking lolo. Walay gi sullti bahin sa gatas. Basin wala ko gatas, diretso bugas. Hindi po. Ako ay batang breast feed, kaya walang sira ang aking mga ngipin. Sa loob ng apat na taon ang aking ina ay nakapagtapos bilang guro . Siya ay umuwi sa kanyang bayan at pinilit nya akong isama ayong sa kwento. Ang aking ina ay nakapagturo na rin; subalit patuloy pa rin ang aking ama sa pag-aaral . Sa lob ng pitong taon ako ay nagsimula ng pumasok sa eskuyla. Noong ako ay nasa Grade 1, tuwing hapon ay inaabangan ko ang aking ina sa kanyang pagdating mula sa baryo ng munisipyo ito. Hindi alam ng ng aking ina ay kung gaano kabilis ang pintig ng aking puso kasama ang aking maliit na kapatid habang naghihintay ng paghinto ng dyip sa tapat ng aming bahay. Sa bawat pagkakataon ng kanyang pagdating kapag gumagabi na, ay tila ba napapawi ang lahat ng takot at pangamba . Sumunod na taon ay guro na rin ang aking ama. Dahil sa kanyang hilig sa motorsiklo ay nagkaroon siya ng isang motosiklo na nabili nya sa kanyang kamag-anak. Halata na ang kalumaan nito subalit matibay pa ito at kaya pa niyang lakbayin ang mabatong daan na lasak na lasak pa ng kakahuyan at kabundukan . Medyo matarik ang lugar at doon ay naging guro ang aking ama. Minsay, may pagkakataon na ako ay napasama niya sa paaralan .Lulan ng kanyang motorsiklo, kumapit ako ng mahigpit sa aking ama dahil may kabilisan siyang magmaneho. Alam ng aking ama ang kanyang ginagawa. Napakasaya ng mga bata ng nadatnan namin sila, kahit sa alam ko sila ay nasa liblib na lugar. ang mga batang Polancos, Barituas ay ang mga batang ito. Sila ay ang mga batang naglalaro sa napakalaking “plaza” nila. Pagsapit ng gabi isinama ako ng aking ama sa isang sayawan o baylihan . ang aking ama ay nag isponsor pala ng isang sayawan. Siguro para sa proyekto ng paaralan ng kanyang tinuturuan. Ako ay umupo sa isang tabi at pinanoood ang mga tao sa kanilang mga ginagawa Ang musika ay gamit ang maliit na pono at may malaking trumpa upang lumakas ang tugtog nito. Kaalinsabay ng pagyakap ng kapareha, sila ay bumubulong sa pagitan ng kanilang mga tainga at hindi ko mauulanigan ang kanilang pinag-uusapan . Sa aking tanto ito ay uri ng folk dance na nakita ko sa aming paaralan ni tinuro ni Mam Villamor. Kinaumagahan sinama ako ng aking ama sakay sa kanyang motorsiklo na may hawak na sako. Sa bawat pagdaan naming sa kalye ay kumakaway ang mga tao sa aking ama na tila ba ay isa siyang artista. o politiko. Sa isip ko hindi lang pala guro ang aking ama ngunit isa rin siyang “politiko.”Siguro ganyan ang guro sa isip ko. Patuloy kami sa pagbibiyahe at humihinto sa mga bahaybahay upang bilhin ang mga bakanteng bote nila. Ako ang tagasilid sa sako nito. Sa aking isipan, ang galing ng aking ama, siya ay hindi lang pala guro ngunit isa ring dakilang mambobote. Pagsapit minsan ng Linggo, ako ay madalas niyang sinasama sa aming bukirin. Lulan ako ng kanyang lumang motorsiklo patungo sa aming bukirin ito rin ay nasa bahagi ng pinagtuturuan ng aking ama. Tinuruan niya ako kung paano magtanim ng punong ng niyog, mais o kaya kape, pagsapit ng tanghali, naglalaro kami ng larong pangwika sabi pa niya at the middle of the sea what can you see at ang pagbabaybay ng salitang furniture ano daw. Sa isip ko ay hindi lang pala guro ang aking ama, siya rin ay magsasaka. Ito ay bahagi ng aking pagiging bata na iminulat na nya ako sa tunay na kahalagahan ng ng pagsaka at pagiging guro. Hindi ko alam na ako ay magiging guro rin . (The second story): THE AVOCADO TREE Once upon a time there was a little boy whose grand father’s house took him less than 30 minutes from the little boy’s house to arrive to his grandfather house. The little boy passed to a line of tall coconut trees on both sides. It was a valley and hilly in both sides before reaching his grandfather’s old wood and “veneer” house. The birds were chirping and singing. They were very happy while the little boy was passing to each tree and was approaching to another tree. Suddenly, he wondered why they were in a festive mood. Slowly, he crawled to a certain Guava tree. He stood-up and climbed the tree, in a moment, he peeped on this tree. “What a little bird that the little boy saw between his eyes; crying and singing altogether,” the little boy commented. Deep inside, he whispered, “as if somebody was really teaching these small beautiful creatures on their behaviors.” The bird’s nest lay above between its tree’s branches; where mother bird built their wonderful home without thinking of what happened outside. The little boy intruded into the bird’s family privacy. At first, the little boy was unnoticed by the mother bird; but, suddenly the mother bird flew in the air leaving only the little birds. The little boy was tempted to bring them while in his way to his grandfather’s house. They were all crying in a very little voices but they were almost a dozen thus, their voices seemed louder and turned melancholic to little boy’s ears. They were helpless and felt neglected and abandoned. The little boy then finally decided to leave the little birds because he believed that mother bird would return back to her children. They needed her care and attention. The little boy then proceeded to his destination. He continued walking. It was a lowland. The little boy now starting to climb a hill-not so stiff, but, he was really running after his breath before reaching the top of the hill. He sat on a big rock for minutes then started walking for a kilometer to his grand father house. He went down slowly from the hilltop. Along the hillsides were trees that were cut into pieces, the little boy thought, “Maybe, it was used for firewood.” The children tight the bundle of firewood and ready to be carried on their shoulders to be brought to their respective houses because there was no electricity during those times and a liquefied petroleum gas was not yet available in the little boy’s town. He didn’t know if there was, or maybe he has no idea of what an LPG was? The little boy continued walking down the hill. He stumbled and rolled down from the hill and stood-up again with the chirping birds singing altogether as if they were also clapping their hands the moment the little boy fixed himself and ready to continue. There were empty shells along the way, ferns, stones of different sizes and colors. The little boy was surprised why there were empty sea shells on his way. He asked his mother, and the little boy’s mother said, “Because the sea shore was just a distance from their house.” She added that “after a long walked from the seashore, in returning to their respective homes, they usually relaxed; and when reaching the top of the hill, they ate some raw sea shells that they have in their basket.” The little boy planned in the future that he will search for that seashore as told by his mother. The little boy again climbed another hill and went down. This time, was the last hill that he would cross before finally reaching his grand father’s house. When he stepped into the lowland, beyond his eyes was a very tall coconut trees where there were no sunlight that can penetrate on the ground. He looked around and saw a pair of old coconut fruits on the ground. He picked- up them, and brought the coconut fruit to his grand father’s house without knowing that the care taker was steering at him. The little boy grand father’s house was located at the flat surface of a hill with a “Tambis tree in front of the “azotea” There were three avocado trees: one was at the front of the house and the others were at the right side of the house. The ground was filled with a very green thick “Bermuda” grass. The little boy’s first cousins were also there and they came ahead before the little boy. The little boy older cousin was already at the top of the “Avocado” tree enjoying to harvest its fruit. The older sister of little boy’s cousin was very expert in moving from one branch to the other branches of the tree and every time she caught a fruit with her bare hands she immediately threw it to the ground and caught by her younger brother using his hand or direct to the sack. The little boy has just arrived and he could not compete to his older cousins. The little boy was very thirsty then, so he went inside to his grandfather’s house to drink some water. Little boys grandfather’s house was made of wood and the roof was from a veneer wood. It was very warmed inside and the floor was red and shiny. The little boy went to the kitchen to drink some water from an antique, big jar using a satin glass. Afterward, the little boy tried to open some left-over food covered by a big satin basin and ate some of its food. When, at least, he was finished eating, he walked again, slowly passing the living room and saw a coconut husk at the corner and rode into it. He was playing on the floor, moving towards the entrance of the living room and going back facing the entrance of the dining hall. The little boy enjoyed and made fun in his grandfather’s house. When the little boy went down from his grandfather’s house, his cousins left him and they went home. At this time, the little boy was alone. Immediately he looked for an empty sack and then climbed the tree. He started to hum and sing while climbing the old avocado tree carefully because its branches were already weak and the stones down the tree were very sharp and pointed. The little boy put some harvested avocado fruit inside the sack and he placed it on his back; holding it with the little boy right hand; because he was left handed and his right hand was used to pull down the avocado fruit. Before the sun set, he went home with half of a sack of avocadoes in his back and the coconuts also. Before approaching the first hill, he noticed that a middle aged-man was standing along his way back home. The little boy guessed, “Maybe he was waiting somebody.” He was holding something and hid it on his back and when the little boy was almost approaching to the estranged man; he started to tremble and his whole body was shaking. His face was wet with a cold perspiration. The man was now standing beside the little boy; as if he didn’t notice that the little boy was going to pass by him. Suddenly, the little boy ran very fast, leaving the avocado and the coconuts because the man was chasing him and running him with his sharp long bolo flying on the air. He was really dying when he arrived in his house. Slowly, he went inside as if nothing was happened. He did not tell anybody what had happened to him until his neighbor told the incident to the little boy. She said, that, “the man running after the little boy was the caretaker of the coconut that he picked up and brought it, in going to his grandfather’s house. According to the rumors, he already killed somebody and he was a drunkard. The little boy’s father, as if didn’t know of the incident. Not until that the little boy grew quite older. The father told the little boy that, he knew everything, that he was waiting for the old man to pass by to their house so that he can revenge on what the man did to little boy. During avocado season, the little boy and I his cousins gathered together in their grandfather’s house. His cousins enjoyed eating the fruit of avocadoes, playing and singing inside the house. They were all very happy until this time that the old house and the Avocado tree were gone but the memories of the Avocado tree painted a sweet smile in their our souls. (ako po yong “little boy” na binanggit sa kwento.) The third story line: The Camera (an Essay) Life is not fair. God created men into his likeness, some are just born attractive and have strong appeal and undeniably some are ugly. Man is not always good. He could be bad. Being honest or dishonest; loyal or disloyal; right or wrong; being good or bad is relative. It depends upon one’s personality and culture and even history or it is hereditary. Life is a choice. It is always true that honesty is a universal policy. Man is created for his own good by the words and become bad of his works. Man is bounded by his action and behavior. This world is not ours. Man is only a guest. Man should behave. We are not animals like dogs or cats. The mountaineers conquer the peak of the earth; the seafarers travel the world. The river is shallow and ocean is deep and has different currents and directions. The weather could be friendly or could be worst. After the heavy rains there is flood and a high tide follows a low tide; after the storm is a promise of a rainbow. The fishes and corals of the ocean accentuated the beauty beneath the earth. Birds travel the world; man destroys the planet. There are geniuses’ inventions to make life easier so that man can breathe under the sea and open the door with a wink. The artists, politicians, and businessmen assume life with fame, power and influence. There are idiots who are weak and the poor are victims of injustices, and insecurities in life. Teachers went to classroom and doctors to its clinic; a shoemaker and bread maker to the factory where he works. At the end of the day, everyone rushes to go home and play their dogs, watered the plants and flowers and feed the fishes. Man eats different food of different prices; relax in a few hours. Nobody wants to stop breathing. No one knows if you can still wake up or not. Who knows only God knows. It could be easy to laugh but difficult to cry; easy to remember but quite hard to forget and thinking to forgive after a day or a night. Life is unfair; but to love someone and to be loved is justice. Man is free to love because love is a wonderful gift from heaven and because it is true, that man is born out of love. Others are born out of greed, its ambition and victim of the phantom of desire. Life is unfair. World leaders envisioned differently. Developed countries dump garbage to the developing nations; domestic helpers to the wealthy; and teachers to a driver; women and men are equal but there is always black and white; God loves mankind equal to his eyes. God wants this world to be happy. God makes this world a better place. Man makes his life miserable. Man makes it worst .Life is not certain. Life is not equal and life is not fair . Man has different views in life? It is not only because of the gift of having a good look and beautiful voice but it is how he improves it, due to its available resources while the less fortunate in life but talented are untouched. The human eye captures wonderful creation; the lens of your eyes produces a powerful picture. It is fair but the picture out of your powerful camera is not fair. It is not true. It is a lie. The driftwood and a sick cat become sophisticated due to modernity and technology. Money speaks for good or for evil. It is unfair. Everything ends. Eagle flies very high and dies like others with life. It could be miserable or with good luck. Man is remembered; or just thrown anywhere. Turn to dust. No one cares. A thrash... Stay Hungry. Going to college is another milestone in your life. You have dreams. I have mine too. I want to dive the ocean, I want to dive the red sea. I want that every living thing in the ocean be protected; I want to plant rice so that the poor are feed. Stay foolish in what you do, so that you will not be bored, so that you can cover-up your emotions when you are out of your family and friends, you meet new friends you leave the old ones. Drive your dreams to highest speed, but just enjoy riding into your dream, just like I enjoyed riding with my father’s motorcycle that he brought me to the real world. This word is survival. You have to work hard. Problems and trials are tests of life. Don’t lose your hope. When I went to college, I brought with me, my “banig and caldero,” I thought a university has a big building and a land. When I arrived at MSU-IIT, I was wrong with my theory. I move forward to MSU-main. I was not afraid. I went there by myself. It was dark already. I was at the center Isle. Somebody helped me. She brought me to the military police quarter. The following morning, they helped me to find a cottage. God is always good. He send me an angel to guide me. During enrolment, I almost back –out because, there were plenty of history subjects. Later I learned that it was only a sections that I will choose one. I just enjoyed my college days, with the Baldagos’ of Garden, Tambis . Toto is now a government statistician in Canada. He was my friend, just an ordinary guy son of a farmer, yet he travels very far, he was not afraid of his poverty, He dream and he succeed. I have high hopes that someday I can finish my course. I was only an average guy; but it never a hindrance to me. I even do not have an honor after my high school. My parents will turn golden of their wedding, next year. Our family is always tested with a very strong typhoon. Our mentally challenged’s brother is our inspiration. I keep myself to be beside my brothers when they went to college. When my sister left us, my parents silently cried. If my father was only rich he didn’t allow my sister to work outside the country. The success of your parents depends on the success of their children. Hindi nyo lang alam ang unang nasasaktan ay ang inyong magulang. Hindi kayo. I dream of my life, just like my classmates, my friends, like Romenia who unfold the dreams of the thousands of children in this town, just like jonjon who bring the children to swim even outside the country, and jona with thousands of children be able to read and write, and Vivencio protecting the thousand trees, and Imelda teaching the children and omik running after the law unabiding citizens, and rosenda, Keeping books and daisy who turns the blind with beautiful eyes and Helen the unfaithful to believers and Jojie as a queen of her own family. These were just few of my classmates whom they dreamed and experienced different challenges, and trials and problems, but they continue to drive their life, just like my father’s motorcycle. It was old, rusty but he brought me to the world of life. Determination is the second line of the story. Determination means you set your vision, mission and goal in life. Vision is your imagination and definition of your existence in this world. Like Hitler controlled the world, the Spaniard spread Christianity or your vision is to make this world a better place. We could have different mission. It is maybe your profession or what is your ambition as very often, a question asked, when your English and Filipino teacher is tired. I am now giving you the right direction of your vision, mission and goal. After your graduation, you have to set your goals. Your goal is to earn a college diploma. It is not a joke; it takes money and efforts because you need the required skill and competencies for employment. .So that you can survive in this competitive market, your college diploma is the surest ticket to live. In order to live, you have to work before you can have a descent work you need enough education. Employment is not the problem in our country, only that there is a mismatch of what is the demand and supply of the market of employment. Don’t stop of dreaming. Climbed your dream just like I climbed the Avocado tree. Even though how strong was the typhoon “Nitang” that hit the province, when my parents were both a college students, still they survived; you need to be extra careful. Just like, I was very careful in moving from one branch to the other branches in climbing the avocado tree. Select you friends and decide your dream. Trust yourself. Teresito Salarza a.k.a. Chito Salarza Grant, now the Mr. Hatman of London, The success of our classmate is unimaginable. I am sure; he moved heaven and earth to reach his goal. Because he was only determined to be out from poverty. If I did not trust my teachers, my adviser with my masters’ degree and believed on what they have said that I can really make it, I could never have a chance to see you and speak in front of you. I dream, I did not stop from dreaming. It took me more than 10 years to finish my master degree, but I really did not stop. Just like I climbed the avocado tree, that I climb my life. .If your brain thinks positively it emits positive energy to your body and your hearts. If it is negative, it discharges negative result as well. Be sure that you are in the proper position and angle. To reach your dream is to capture a beautiful picture. Just like your camera even how branded it is, and outmoded is your camera, you can still have a beautiful picture. There is an imbalance of the result of picture from high end camera and a camera from china. But this imbalance becomes balance when you have techniques to take pictures from a cheaper camera. The rich go to exclusive school while the poor can not even go to college. Don’t lose faith, find means to go to college. Scholarships or maybe as a working students. Some finished college yet their parents are poor. Some are rich but have not finished college. Teresita Curada our class valedictorian, find it difficult to sustain her college education, With her “diskarte,” she was able to have a good life now. Eduation plays an important role to make this world balance. Good values are very important. Sooner you want to marry somebody else. It is a big responsibility. Your parents were taught of discipline of life by their parents also. When you become a parents you are responsible of your children the same thing to your parents. So that when you become a law unabiding Fililipino citizen, if you destroy the earth’s nature because of your bad decision and behavior , it is not yourself who failed, but your parents. Education makes it balance. It makes you a broad minded person. You would be able to control your behavior and you could have preserved and conserved the nature as best God’s gift to mankind. This is created by God equally to all people. The inequalities are because of wrong action and behavior and decision. God has no definition of what is beautiful and ugly. What is therefore the physical characteristics of an ugly person? The white or the black? . the Filipina or the American? Why there are Americans who loves to marry a Filipina, who has a darker skin and a very small lady? Is that the standard of the Americans of what is being beautiful? Man sets the standards and we do not have a uniform standard. So that man creates peace and war in this world. The imbalance lies on the eyes of the beholder. It lies on the people. Education brings you to your dream and places. But it does not always the case maybe. It does not mean that if you are not a doctor or a nurse or a mayor, or a teacher, does not mean that you are not a successful person. For as long as you are doing the right thing and you are a law abiding Filipino citizen, that you help your family and help person who are in need, that to me is a well - educated and a successful person. Having my doctorate is not easy. It does not mean that I am already a successful person. It is not your fame, glory and position and your education in this world that makes you a successful one, but what small things that counts; that makes you a successful and immortal person. The farmers, fishermen and teachers and doctors are just equal in the eyes of God. Life isn’t fair, your camera is not fair, but the gift of love from heaven and the gift of love from your parents are fair. Graduates of Batch 2014, congratulations. God Bless you all.
