buhay atbp…

sa mahabang panahon, hinayaan kong pagpahingahin ang blog ko. sa kadahilanang di ko rin maintindihan. may mga pagkakataon na gusto ko magsulat pero mas pinipili kong hindi. pero ngayon, napagtanto ko na kailangan ko na uli kumunekta sa cyberworld, dahil kung hindi ngayon kailan pa uli di ba? kasi parang sa tagal ng bakasyon ko, nawala na rin ako sa agos ng panahon. ang masaklap pa, ang dami na palang bago sa mundong ito. pero nakakatuwang isipin na sa pagbabalik ko, parang ako pa ngayon ang baguhan sa mundong ito.

kaya iwelcome niyo naman uli ako… hehe.

gusto ko lang bigyan ng kabuluhan ang ilang mga litrato na kinunan ko nitong mga nakaraang araw.

tsinelas

nakunan ko ang mga pares ng tsinelas na ito nang kami ay nagkaroon ng storytelling at feeding na activity sa mga liblib na paaralan sa leyte. akala ko dati, ang proyekto ng rated k kung saan nagbibigay sila ng tsinelas ay sadyang palabas lamang. pero ng makita ko ang mga pares na ito, nabago bigla ang pananaw ko, na totoo palang marami pa ring mga batang pumapasok na hindi maayos ang sapin sa paa. habang kinukunan ko ang mga pares ng tsinelas na ito, narealize ko na maswerte pa talaga ako dahil hindi ako ang nagmamay-ari ng bakanteng espasyo.

sa buhay, matuto kang magpasalamat sa anumang kabutihang tinatamo, dahil di lahat ay katulad  nang kinalalagyan mo.

matuto kang magpasalamat, dahil di kabilang ang tsinelas mo sa litrato.

at magpasalamat ka dahil mas pinagpala ka pa sa mga batang nagmamay ari ng mga tsinelas na ito.

sa buhay maraming dahilan para magpasalamat. kaya huwag nating sayangin ang bawat pagkakataon na pahalagahan at pasalamatan ang poong maykapal sa buhay na ating kinalalagyan.

usapang palay, bigas, kanin…

save rice, save lives

Sa bawat isang kutsarang kanin na nasasayang kada araw ng bawat isa sa atin, katumbas nito ang libu-libong sako ng bigas  kada taon.

Ibig sabihin lamang nito, na kung ang bawat Pilipino ay bibigyang halaga ang palay, bigas, at kanin, matutugunan natin ang problema sa kakulangan ng pagkain.

Kailan pa ba natin ito hindi sasayangin? kapag dumating na lang ba ang panahong wala na tayong makaing kanin?

Isipin lagi natin na sa bawat butil ng palay ay may buhay na nakasalalay.

Sana maging kaisa ka sa adbokasiyang ito.

Maari mong ilagay ang logo na ito sa sidebar ng blog mo. Salamat.

Bawat BUTIL ay BUHAY, Huwag Sayangin!

Bawat BUTIL mahalaga, Huwag Mag-aksaya!

short taym… a busuanga island (coron), palawan experience

my last weekend’s trip to busuanga island (coron), palawan was definitely a blast and an experience worth keeping. thanks for the Philippine Agricultural Journalists, Inc for giving as an award with a cash prize which enables us to travel to palawan. see story here.

PAJ Binhi Awards 2010

thou, its a ‘short time’ since we arrived at coron sunday noon and left tuesday morning, still we managed to explore the place.

we stayed in a lodge located at sitio maricaban, an hour away from coron townproper, where me and my colleagues experienced a ‘real’ seaside life. the lodge is not so extravagant but with the service and hospitability they offered, sure it was worth it…

this is where we stayed...

Palawan’s hidden treasures…

last last week, had my third trip to Palawan. but this time my work took me to the southernmost part of the province.and yes literally the southern part since we slept in a house near the coastal area where Malaysia and Spratly Islands is just an hour away via boat.

everytime i visit this place, i am always amaze with the little surprises Palawan has to offer. at least, it gave me a reason to always come back di ba?

el nido, coron, etc, to name a few is famous for their beautiful beaches, and all of these are located at the northern part of Palawan. but then who wouldn’t want to dare for a little adventure in the south, where the Tabon caves are located. yes, the Tabon caves, this is a series of caves where the first civilization in the Philippines was found by Robert Fox. just a little of history.

too bad we dont have enough time, so we only saw it from afar.

behind this mountain is the famous Tabon Caves.

it will be an hour boatride from the mainland of Quezon, Palawan.

aside from the Tabon Caves, a majestic view of their beaches can also be seen in the rustic parts of Brgy. Aramaywan, Quezon, Palawan.

as we woke up in the morning we encountered this dawn breaking. breathtaking, indeed!

when the water, sun, and air, meets the earth…

palawan, again…

there is a saying among Palaweños that once you have come to their place you will come back for some ‘unknown’ reasons, they call it the ‘balik-balik’. wel, for a place like Palawan, who would never wanted to come back di ba?

so again, here’s my second trip to Palawan, particulary at Puerto Princesa City. the last time, i enjoyed the nature, this time i enjoyed the people.

i met Puerto Princesa’s Mayor Hagedorn, and infairnes to him, he welcomes visitors with warmth.this was during the socials night at the a&a hotel.

me, ate chona, and mayor

i also got the chance to have a picture with ms love añover of GMA7’s Unang Hirit and HappyLandia, who happens to be a tourist, like us,  dat tym.

ate chona, love, me, and mel

i also enjoyed a beautiful cultural performances presented by the beautiful people of Palawan.

wd the cultural performers

moreover, i met this young farmer of quezon, palawan during the aerobic rice conference, who is, i may say, very pretty and nice.

melissa

i tried the kilawen or sashimi version of Kalui’s resto, which is very very delicious.

kilaw

and tried a baby crocodile meat at Kinabuchs bar and grill. a little spicy, but perfectly done.

croc meat ala bicol express

wat i really really wont forget was our visit to the Iwahig Prison and Penal Camp, where i got my INMATE/MEDUIM shirt, yeah i got one. thanks to some ilocano prisoners who were very glad to know that i am an ilocano too. hehe. unfortunately, i didnt have enough courage to ask wats their case, you know, it myt offend them.

entrance

i asked the inmates if can take a picture with them, but they refused. since baka daw makilala sila ng mga tao sa labas. however i can take pictures of them naman daw as long as they will not be recognized.

inmates going to their celdas

inside the prison camp is a resort wherein a flowing water is set to entice the visitors to dip.

a pool in the prison camp

unfortunately, i was not instructed to bring clothes for swimming that’s why me and some friends ended picturetaking nalang.

striking a pose

so there you have it. again, my palawan’s new experiences. taking home with me is a rainmaker (natives of Palawan created this believing that it can call rain to fall, and yes if you flip it, it sounds like a pouring rain), just in time for the el niño. 😉

GodBless everyone!
