Paano ba natin ipahahayag ang ating pagmamahal sa ating inang bayan?

Wazz’up wazz’up mga tropa? Ito na naman si Kuya Mighty at magkakasama na naman tayo in the next 30 minutes sa kwentuhan natin dito sa Generation Y Chronicles.

inangbayanAng isa sa mga paborito kong movies while growing up, ah, napapanuuod to sa free tv ano at siyempre napanood ko na rin to sa dvd version nito, ung BRAVEHEART na kinatampukan ni Mel Gibson. Ang hindi ko makakalimutan na part ng movie yung time na nacapture si William Wallace un character ni Mel Gibson towards the end of the movie at ung hari ng England during that time asked him one question, “Mercy or freedom?”

Siguro para sa isang bayani na kagaya ni William Wallace, parang  in a sense if ang kinahaharapan mo ay siguradong kamatayan, baka pwedeng pwedeng mercy sana ung isinigaw niya noh? Kasi during that time ah, siya taga Scottland siya at ung kalaban niya ay yung hari ng United Kingdom o ung hari ng England.

Ngayon, given the chance to, to still live, pero ibig sabihin hindi na niya ipaglalaban ung kalayaan ng Scottland, andun ung choice for him, is it mercy or freedom? At, wel, siyempre kung napanuod niyo ung movie, you would know na ang pinili niyang isigaw ay FREEDOM. At yon, ung last scene ng movie ay yung palakol o yung axe, yun ang pumugot sa ulo niya. Yan.

So, by the way mga tropa… Namatay siya, he was just 23 years old. Imagine noh?! He was just 23! Just, kabataan pa siya! So, imagine mo noh, he was a hero at age 23. Di ba, that’s, pag napapanuod ko pala ung movie na yon nagkakaroon, nagkakaroon ako ng goosebumps kasi kitang-kita mo sa kanila yung pagmamahal nila sa kanilang bayan. Now, dito sa ating bansa, do you want to be a hero? GUSTO MO BANG IPAHAYAG DIN YUNG PAGMAMAHAL MO SA ATING INANG BAYAN?

Authenticity, Blogging, Social Media & (Christian) Living

A lot of people often post their rants, complaints, and beef against someone, or against the world in general, on their Social Media profiles. For all the world to see. Some of them could easily earn the Drama King or Queen Award on Facebook.

Some of my friends are also fond of ‘Instagramming’, posting photos of their food, whether savory or not; of the heavy traffic, some random cuteness, selfies, pics of their babies or whole families. I know of a friend whose Facebook timeline mainly contains pics of her growing baby.

One particular friend also loves to check into all the places he goes to–the office, Starbucks, a store in the mall, and his apartment, which he refers to as his Castle on Foursquare.

Hyperconnected

In this hyperconnected, always on world, we have become the star of our own Reality TV Show, except that we’re not on TV, but on the Social Networks we inhabit. Oh wait, yeah, there’s YouTube and the scores of silly videos we upload, right?

(By the way, studies in the US found out that Social Media can make us envious of our friends and less satisfied with our own lives.)

At some point, I was also caught up in the craziness of Facebook. I posted about the Pinakbet I’m eating, the places I’m going to, plus the occasional complaints about utilities and other services. But when the novelty wore off, I found myself reverting back to normal and hesitation to post about my personal life set in. Continue reading

Patapos na ang summer tropa, nag enjoy kaba? Madalas kabang nauuhaw? In this episode we are going to talk about our “THIRST”. Ano ba nang kina-uuhawan natin mga kabataan?

Right click to download Episode #016

Good evening mga tropa, how are you? It’s already more than halfway ng May ibig sabihin malapit naring matapos ang buwan na ito and that also means na patapos narin ang atin summer. Kumusta naman ang summer ninyo, nag enjoy ba kayo? Did you go to the beach or nag stay lang kayo sa baha nag summer class ba kayo at at medyo na bore sa mga profesors ninyo? How about yung mga “gimik” na pinuntahan ninyo this summer? How did it go? Nag establish ba kayo ng business or did you learn some new skills? Well, ano pa man ang mga pinaggagawa ninyo this summer I’m just hoping na naging productive ang summer ninyo at siyempre sana naging fun! Well, ako medyo naging fun ang aking summer maraming pinag gagawa. Kapag kasi ikaw ay isang youth worker , isang youth minister at isa ding writer at ngayon ay isa rin nasa radyo na nag bro-broadcast kasama ninyo hindi talaga nawawalan ng ginagawa. Yes! Mga tropa ako si Kuya Mighty magkakasama nanaman tayo in the next 30 minutes ng pakikinig sa mga nice songs and at the same time makikipag kuwentuhan ako sa inyo about our life as young people.

So ito na nga, throughout the summer grabeh ung init! Minsan umaabot pa nga yata sa 36 degrees centigrade o kaya minsan diyan siguro sa banda ng Tuguegarao umaabot ng 40 degrees and during those times sigurado ako na, alam mo yung feeling na kapag naglakad ka lang ng kahit sampung minute lang under the heat of the sun, alam mo yung grabeh, tagaktak yung pawis tapos pagod na pagod ka at gustong-gusto mong uminom! Naramdaman niyo nay un diba? Yung tipong, yung lalamunan mo tuyong-tuyo, yung pawis mo medyo nanghihina kana at gustong gusto mong uminom, diba? So on those times ano ang iniinom mo? Usually, sa atin meron mga pumupunta sa tindahan bumibili ng soft drink pero pagkatapos mong uminom ng soft drink medyo nauuhaw kapa rin diba? Kasi nga matamis yung soft drink, lalong lalo na may “caffeine” siya, so ang “caffeine” ay tinatawag siyang “diuretic” na nakakapag dehydrate sa ating katawan. So ito sa totoo lang, hindi lang pisikal ang mga thirst natin meron din tayong mga “spiritual and emotional thirst”. Ito yung mga tipong kinauuhawan mo sa buhay. Well yun nga yung pag uusapan natin ngayon at kung ano man yung mga uhaw na iyon ay malalaman natin as we discover kung anu-ano yung mga alternatives natin na iniinom dahil dito sa mga thirst natin.

Trabaho, Trabaho, Nasan Ka?

by Sola Apostol

Mapa-fresh grad ka man, kaka-endo lang, o ilang years ka nang idle, iisa lang ang aim natin–makapaghanap ng work. Siguro excited ka. Driven. Pressured, o baka naman mismong magulang mo na ang pumipilit sa’yong magpunta sa mga job fairs o gumawa ng account sa mga online job site.

job hunting

 

Minsan mabilis pa sa alas kuatro. Minsan, parang magte-ten years na. Hanap-hanap lang pag may time.

Nag-OJT ako dati sa isang city government office. Ang aim nila ay mabigyan ng trabaho ang mga kababayan nila sa nasabing lugar. Sila ‘yung contact ng iba’t ibang kumpanya para makakuha ng mga empleyado. Kumbaga, parang manpower sila, government-based nga lang. Naalala ko ang sinabi sa’kin ng isang clerk doon.

“Alam mo ba, ang trabaho na ang lumalapit sa kanila. Pero dahil sa mga pansarili nilang dahilan (kesyo malayo at wala silang pamasahe, hindi nila gusto ang trabaho, atbp), pinapalagpas nila ang opportunity na makapagsimulang makaipon sila ng pera.”

Personally, hindi naman talaga mahirap maghanap ng trabaho. Kung talagang hindi ka tumitigil sa pag-apply, tiyak na makakakuha at makakakuha ka talaga ng trabaho within a month or two. At sa tingin ko naman, marami talagang kabataan ang napaka-dedicated sa paghahanap ng trabaho, lalo na’t bumaba ang jobless rate ng mga Pinoy Youth. Kitang-kita na in demand tayo, tropa.

Siguro, bago ka maghanap ulit ng trabaho, keep this two questions in mind:

1. Para saan ba’tong ginagawa ko?
2. Ano bang makukuha ko kung makakapagtrabaho ako?

Promise, makakatulong ‘yan as motivation sa susunod na mag-apply ka. 🙂

mothers.nanay_pv05Hey mga tropa, how are you today? Pumunta ba kayo sa mga polling stations para i-cast ang inyong mga boto para sa magiging senador ng ating bayan, yung mga magiging governors congressman at siyempre yung mga mayor at yung mga konsehal sa inyong mga bayan? You know ang pagboto ay isa sa ating mga responsibilities as citizens dito sa ating bansa and it is one of the ways that we can participate in the government of country so I hope na ginawa ninyo yan at hindi ninyo sinayang yung chance to make a difference in our country.

Well, there is also an important thing na naganap kahapon which was Sunday ito yung ating tinatawag na “Mother’s Day” which is being celebrated all over the world. Alam ba ninyo ang history ng Mother’s Day? Actually ang Mother’s day, hindi lang siya dito sa Pilipinas sine-celebrate, nag umpisa talaga ang celebration ng Mother’s day duon sa United States at ito nga ay inumpisahan ng isang babaeng nag-ngangalang “Ana Jarvis” na tiga West Virginia at nuong 1908. Isipin mo grabe ganun na katagal itong celebration na ito, it’s been more than 100 years at siyempre throughout history may mga pagkakataon na ang mga mothers ay sine-celebrate although hindi siya, parang hindi siya parang wlang holiday associated with it.

Well technically, ang Mother’s day ay hindi naman talaga holiday although we recognize it sa 2nd Sunday of the month of May at so itong si Ana Jarvis nga noong 1908 nag-umpisa siyang magkaroon ng isang memorial para sa mga mommy, mga mother’s duon sa grafton, West Virginia at since then nag umpisa ito at nag campaign siya para gawing recognized holiday sa United States ang Mother’s Day, well naging successful siya nuon 1914 but, well as usual kagaya ng nagaganap sa maraming mga holidays naging commercialized ito at ginamit ito para mag benta ng mga produkto, magbenta ng kung anu-ano and so naging commercialized ang Mother’s day kaya itong si Ana Jarvis eh medyo naging disappointed siya sa kinahinatnan nung kanyang naging campaign but well in any case dito sa Pilipinas because tayo ay heavily influenced ng mga Americans we also started celebrating Mother’s day at siguro it’s also one way for us na maalala at wag kalimutan yung mga role ng ating mga magulang especially our mothers kahit man lang once a year. Kasi naman minsan nakakalimutan natin na i-kiss si mommy si nanay diba? O kaya I hug o kaya pasalamatan siya sa lahat ng mga ginagawa niya sa ating buhay. Ano ginawa ninyo kahapon para kay mommy? Hindi niyo ba siya pinagtrabaho sa buong bahay? Kumain ba kayo sa labas? Binilan niyo ba siya ng card or binigyan ng cake? Well ano man yung mga ginawa ninyo kahapon ano, I’m hoping na you managed to make her special kahit na isang araw man lang sa isang buong taon. Pakinggan muna natin itong isang awitin ito, this one is from Spice Girls entitled “MAMA” Continue reading
