Gamit ang mautak na pananalita, Nakaririndi, Nakasasakit.

Proverbs 14:22

If you plan to do good, you will receive unfailing love and faithfulness


Politics and Markets

You have two cows.
Your neighbour has none.
You feel guilty for being successful.
Barbara Streisand sings for you.

You have two cows.
The government takes one and gives it to your neighbour.
You form a cooperative to tell him how to manage his cow.

You have two cows.
The government seizes both and provides you with milk.
You wait in line for hours to get it.
It is expensive and sour. Read the rest of this page »

The rise of Matikas

By : Ret. Col Romeo Y. Lim

BEING the Scout Rangers chief of staff for eight years, I cannot but help but favor this unit above all other service units in the Armed Forces. While there are other elite units in the police and military like the Special Action Forces of the PNP and the Special Warfare Group of the Philippine Navy, the Scout Rangers of the Philippine Army are the best. But then of course as expected, I am extremely biased.

Having said that, I also have my pick for the best class in the Philippine Military Academy: “Matikas” Class 1983. What would be my yardstick for saying that?  Read the rest of this page »

Wen Ah!

It has been told that around 1944, McArthur ordered an intensified intelligence gathering on the Japanese troops to better prepare his troops for the liberation. In Isabela, a local guerilla unit, with attached orphaned USAFFE troops, decided to send a patrol to cross the Cagayan River from their lair to the opposite side occupied by Japanese troops to reconnoiter. On the small guerilla banca were an Ilocano guerilla fighter and a US Army Lt. They were sent with small provisions in case they get stranded Read the rest of this page »


…under the salvo of fireworks glazing the sky, magkasama kayo? It has been a week, and that Saturday night was my most memorable during my APC stay. Ikaw ba naman, you’ve dated your crush, and not just a crush on that, one of the well-known and prettiest faces in the school. I felt awkward kasi twas a group date (and I did not expected that) Read the rest of this page »

big bang

When I started reading Noli and Fili again years after having been forced to read them in College in deep and completely unreadable Tagalog (because that’s what was called for in the curriculum), I realized it wasn’t a criticism of the Spaniards at all, it was more a criticism of ourselves, how we think (or don’t), how we act, that the ills of government, Spanish or our own, are merely symptoms of our own depravity as a society, that government is what it is because of who we are, and that it won’t ever change unless we ourselves change.

It’s interesting that Rizal laid it out for us in his writings more than a hundred years ago but Read the rest of this page »

Great People Do Fall

..literally. I had a bad vibe kaninang umaga pa lang that there’s something wrong, I didn’t told Clare/Net/Ced about it. No storm signal or low pressure area. And kanina nga lang before going to a school subject-related event, posts pop up about the departure of Sir Dennis. I was shocked.

We just have a student-mentor relationship but it feels like losing a close friend. He’s the person na you could ask from computers to career to personal-related. My only subject with him was ITCONCEPTS but every now and then I ask pointers for him to help pave my career path.

ituring mo na parang palengke ang isang relasyon.
matuto kang timbangin ang tama at mali, pag marami ng bulok itapon na pero hindi porket may sira hindi na pwede. ihiwalay ang nabubulok sa hindi nabubulok. wag haluan ng sira ang kamatis na bago.
kung pag aaralan mo na magbigay ng sakto lang wala kang aasahan na sukli, hindi ka mawawalan at hindi ka malulugi.
maraming tao sa palengke pero kung alam mo kung ano ang ipinunta mo dun hindi ka malilito.
