Ang Birhen Ng Medalyang Milagrosa

A wonderful story about appreciation…

Let me share with you a wonderful story I’ve read from my friend’s Facebook wall post.


One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position in a big company.

He passed the first interview, the director did the last interview, made the last decision.

The director discovered from the CV that the youth’s academic achievements were excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, never had a year when he did not score.

The director asked, “Did you obtain any scholarships in school?” the youth answered “none”.

The director asked, ” Was it your father who paid for your school fees?” The youth answered, “My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.

The director asked, ” Where did your mother work?” The youth answered, “My mother worked as clothes cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.

The director asked, ” Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?” The youth answered, “Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Furthermore, my mother can wash clothes faster than me.

The director said, “I have a request. When you go back today, go and clean your mother’s hands, and then see me tomorrow morning.

The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back, he happily requested his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to the kid.

The youth cleaned his mother’s hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother’s hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother shivered when they were cleaned with water.

This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fee. The bruises in the mother’s hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his graduation, academic excellence and his future.

After finishing the cleaning of his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother.

That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.

Next morning, the youth went to the director’s office.

The Director noticed the tears in the youth’s eyes, asked: “Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?”

The youth answered,” I cleaned my mother’s hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes’

The Director asked,”please tell me your feelings.”

The youth said, Number 1, I know now what is appreciation. Without my mother, I am not successful today. Number 2, by working together and helping my mother, only I now realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done. Number 3, I have come to appreciate the importance and value of family relationship.

The director said, “This is what I am looking for to be my manager. I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life. You are hired.

Later on, this young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates. Every employee worked diligently and as a team. The company’s performance improved tremendously.

A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop “entitlement mentality” and would always put himself first. He would be ignorant of his parent’s efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person must listen to him, and when he becomes a manager, he would never know the sufferings of his employees and would always blame others. For this kind of people, who may be good academically, may be successful for a while, but eventually would not feel sense of achievement. He will grumble and be full of hatred and fight for more. If we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying the kid instead?

You can let your kid live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch a big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them experience it. After a meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters. It is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way. You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parents are, one day their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young person. The most important thing is your kid learns how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things done.



Gloria killed it, PNoy resuscitates RHBill?!… (my stand on the issue)

As revealed in Raissa Robles’s blogpost dated 7, 2011, former president now Pampangga Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal – Arroyo killed the controversial RH Bill in favor of the CBCP’s solid support for her administration.

A common sight, it is undeniably realistic how the increase in Philippine population is closely linked with the country’s extreme poverty. Click the photo to view a videodocumentary on this controversial issue.

Now, PNoy has finally got the guts to back up the bill   as slightly disclosed in his third SONA on the 23rd of July. For sure he is aware how people from the influential CBCP would react but the pretty thing is that he’s into it… ProRH bill like myself must be happy for this not-so-straightforward pronouncement from PNoy.

For more than a decade since it was first introduced in the Congress in 1998 by House Minority Leader Edcel Lagman, et al, along with the other versions which were finally consolidated into one bill on January 31, 2011 now known as An Act Providing for a Comprehensive Policy on Responsible Parenthood, Reproductive Health and Population Development and for Other Purposes, the bill has only encouraged heated debate from the country’s different sectors but was barely considered as part of  the top priorities of many legislators.

The democratic process has stalled at the hands of time-wasting legislators and bullying bishops,” says I should agree.

I support RH Bill because nothing in its provisions speaks about ‘anti-life measures’ as feared by most pro-life advocates. The inclusion of mandatory sex educationto Filipino learners is but just necessary as most families find it a taboo to discuss issues on human sexuality with their children. After all, these are all anchored on the premise of  offering the Filipino youth  an intellectual avenue in promoting (a) Values formation; helping provide appropriate (b) Knowledge and skills in self protection against discrimination, sexual violence and abuse, and teen pregnancy… plus salient discussions on (j) Proscription and hazards of abortion. Nothing in particular in the provisions talks on anti-life concerns.

“People have the right to know and be completely aware of their reproductive biology, the odds of infertility, the responsibility and possible complications of pregnancy/child-rearing, their capability to prevent STDs and HIV/AIDS, or the understanding what unwanted pregnancy and abortion could lead to?” says jadedsecret on her blog.

Supporting the RH Bill does not make me lesser of a Christian nor a Catholic. Thus, I find it a bit uproarious for some preachers to synonymously categorized the bill with evilness as if the pro-RH bill are committing mortal sin. Even the Constitutionalist, Fr. Joaquin G. Bernas, S.J. expressed his dismay on preachers telling parishioners that support for the RH Bill ipso facto is a serious sin or merits excommunication!  I agree when he added, “I find this to be irresponsible.”

The consolidated bill reiterates the prohibition of abortion as an assault against the right to life. Thus, nothing on it would certainly legalize killing an unborn.

CBCP is taking it on the streets again as it has always delved on the moral grounds of the issue. On its informal survey, CBCP eyes a voting result in favor for their cause.

The House of Representatives are set to vote on either terminating or continuing the period of debates on the RH Bill on Aug. 7. I hope it wont come out the way CBCP expected [and prayed for]… I am deeply concerned of the welfare of the nation and especially of poor women who cannot afford the cost of medical service as given concerns in the bill’s Declaration of Policy and Guiding Principles.

Whatever results the voting may have tomorrow, I hope it would benefit poverty-stricken Juan dela Cruz and the next generation of my beloved Philippines.

Children Learn What They Live

This is a repost from an online source:
I would love to share this on my blog for my web wanderers to ponder on… I’ll be using the Filipino translation of this literary piece  in my  Values Education class.


Children Learn What They Live
By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

Istorya ni Ka Tubol

Sisay an makalingaw sa orosipong hineras ni Papay Makoy manungod sa maurag na si Ka Tubol?

Ining si Ka Tubol

Nagtutukaw duman sa tampi kan salog

Naghahalat halat siya kun ano an

Medyos niyang masakayan

Tapos nagpasalamat siya paglabay kan bagol

Asin tulos na siya suminakay

Kaiba an bagol,  sinda nagpaanod-anod

Nagduduyan sa mabublay na sulog

Pag-abot niya sa lilikuan

Hinagara siya kan alimango

Ngaya “Ka Tubol pasain kamo?”

“Maduman sa Kagdaragangan.”

In sigidang simbag ni Ka Tubol.

“Maano man kamo duman?”

Sa guiraray si Ka Tubol nagsimbag:


“Ay maray pa ngaya maiba man ako.”

Presenta kang alimangong aruhado

Sabi ni katubol “Di hala”

Di iriba na sinda

Sa salog naglangoy so alimango

Kasunod ni Ka Tubol na sa bagol nakakursamano

Pag-abot naman duman sa kanto na matiko

Hagarahon ni Kasili

Ngaya “Ka Tubol pasain kamo?”

“Maduman sa Kagdaragangan, makiguera”

Simbag ni Ka Tubol saiya.

“Aw maray pa maki-iba man ako”

Sabi kan kasiling presentado.

Di hala… sige iriba na sinda

Pag-abot duman sa dakulaon na harong

Na linabayan ninda

Duman na sinda nagsakga

“Iyo na ini ang gigirahon ta”

Maisog ni Ka Tubol na iprinisenta.

Pagsalta ninda duman

Si Ka Tubol bahala na man siya

Ta apisar na baskog maabilidad man siya

Nagpasalamat ngani siya

Ta bangue sinda nagruhab, laen aldaw

Ta kun aldaw pupurodyuton siya kan langaw.

Ngunyan pag-abot ninda duman sa dakulang harong

An  mga kagharong tururog, warang paka-mangno sa mga bisitang duminatong

Ngaya “Ika Kasili, digdi ka sa puerta mayor

Kan halangkaw na harong…”

“Ika ngaya Alimango

Duman ka harani sa kusina”

Ngunyan si Ka Tubol

Luway-luway na nagligid paitaas

Pagdagos sa kuwarto

Si Ka Tubol, so mga turog pigparariligidan

Primerong pigligidan nya so lalaki, si Juan

So pandok ginibo niyang hurmahan

Sagkod so agom niyang si Maria

Nunca na nakasalba

Pakatapos  pagparaligidan

Ngaya “Juan mabataon ka!”

Osip ni Maria sa napul-awang katubay

“Mabataon ka man nganing tunay.”

Supon ni Juan kay Maria.

So mga aque na tulo dae nagmarangno

Pangyari sa  saindang magurang

Dae sindang pagkabisto…

Ngaya “hanapa so posporo”

Manda ni Juan

Posporong nahurabot dae na nanggad naduktan

Ta ining si Ka Tubol ang sabritan

Kan saiyang daplos pigparalahidan

Ngaya “pasiring ka duman sa kusina”

Si Maria naman ang nagtaram

Sa agom na napurawot sa karupitan

Pagduman sa kusina

Tanganing dukalwong makua

Dae pa nakaantos

Sa hagdan pa sana

Ining si Alimango nagbuwelo nin todo

Samingkil ni Juan

Kinigat ki puwersado

Sa ngarat kan Juan

Tulos siyang duminalagan

Sa puerta mayor paluwas siyang nagduman

Alagad can siya palusad na

Gaposon can Kasiling nakabantay

Burubodan an saiyang tabay

Magbalintok, matuwal…

Payo sa dalipay nakabudal

Tulos man sana,

Binawian nin buhay…

An had-it na Maria

Sa kuwarto nangapudan

“Haen ka na  ngaya Juan?”

Ni gios o agoro dae siyang namatean

In sigida, magpasiring si Maria sa kusina

Ta dukalwong dae nakukua

Sa taluhong naghanap siya que baga

Kalayo napápá na

Ta ining si Ka Tubol dae pa nahahaloy

Sa taluhong nagdupa-dupa

Daplos niyang mamara

Sa baga nagpaluya

Ta si Juan dae naab’tan

Sa puerta mayor siya napaduman

Naghahalat na kasili tulos siyang binurubodan

Kaherak na Maria

Tulos na nagbalintok

Sa mapanas na gapo ngudoy niya napahadok

Ata ngani dae pa naaawat,

Kalag niyang bagoy

Tulos man na luminuwas

So tulong aque na namurawmurawan

Duman sa kuwarto nagpakatago

Pagkatapos maisihan kamugtakan can pobreng magurang

Duman sa laog

Sinda sana ang natada

Pagkatapos can encuentro

Sa salog dagos na nagduman

Si Kasili kaiba si Alimango

Si Ka Tubol binayaan na

“Bahala ka na..” ngaya “dyan!”

Natapos so apos

Pagado ang estorya.


Salamat kay Papay Makoy sa orosipon na ini… Hanggang sa guiraray tang pagurulay!!!
