AN OPEN LETTER TO A FISHERMAN FROM IMUS
=================================


dear "W",

thanks for your concern. nice of you to have noticed also my blog. i hope you like it!

don't worry--- i have no intention of stopping myself from doing what i want to do best.and that is to spread and share what i know and what i have learned. i have to respond in english---not that i am saying i don't know how to talk and write in tagalog. i type more faster in english--- i am sure you can undestand the keyboard stroke that i have learned. also, i was thinking --- since this is an open blog for everybody-- i want it to be done universally --- in case some people reads it and donot understand tagalog.

so no offense to those blogger who do their blog in tagalog. all of us has our own conviction on how we do the blog. and this is mine--- to share what i know and to give out what i have. KNOWLEDGE is not selfishness-- it has to be shared, so this is what i am doing.

thank you---"W" if you read my blog and like it too.

i am so jealous with your profession. did you know that is the most improtant profession that was chosen by CHRIST when he gathered his followers? actually the CROSS is not the fist symbol of the early christians--- it was the drawing of a FISH. in the early times-- when the disciples started spreading the word of CHRIST, they wont use the symbol fo the CROSS -- this is a symbol of Roman torture.

that is the reason the name itself of CHRIST came from the Greek word:" IKSOS"-- meaning to say "FISH". if you go inside the church you will see the symbol "IHS" and there is a cross in the middle of the letter "H". that three letters "IHS" is read as "'IKSOS" in Greeck and that is the word "FISH".

my brother in law "W"-- hails from Bancaan/Naic /Cavite. his father is a fisherman also like you. we have friends in Imus also--- maybe you know them---"CASTANEDA". my brother in law's street in Bancaan is called "seaman's street" cuz all of the male population in that street are all seamen that he gave employment. he is known as Capt. H-----". he is like my second father. i grew up with him and he was the one who sent me to school and all.

if you like my blog--why don't you put your comment on it. i'd love to hear what you say too, even in tagalog...sige nah!

SALAMAT SA PAG-ALALA SA AKIN. !

THE EVIL EMPIRE STRIKES AGAIN!!!
=========================


i was not able to sleep properly this evening cuz it was so cold even if additional heater is running inside my bedroom.so early at around 6am, i stood up--since i am using the third bedroom of the house-- i walked slowly to the computer room so as not to wake up my wife still resting at the master's bedroom.

went to the computer room--switched on my computer--- i don't want to read my book, so i prefer to surf the computer....GUESS WHAT---- THE DUWAGS STRIKES AGAIN!!!

i just deleted the email. no sense of opening it and reading something that is not worth my morning. i took my morning dosage of my Thyroid pill and ignored the whole thing in my computer.

TO THE MEMBER(S) OF THE EVIL EMPIRE---THE SOLDIERS OF "KA DUWAGAN", good morning to all of you. i had a good morning here...its right now 28 degrees below, we have snow on the ground and all my cars are covered with the dust of the white powder.

HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED IN YOUR LIFE THE FOUR SEASONS OF THE YEAR??

looks like you people have nothing better to do--- so i will tell you how to go about it. here's some suggestions for all of you:


"PRINCIPIO TIBI,QUICUM QUE ES, SPIRITUS IMMUNDE, ET OMNIBUS SOCIIS TUIS---- PRAECIPIO TIBI, QUICUMQUE ES, SPIRITUS IMMUNDE...."


"----DICAS MIHI NOMEN TUUM, DIEM, ET HORAM EXITUS TUI, CUM ALIQUO SIGNO....
EXORCIZO TE, IMMUNDISSIME SPIRITUS, OMNIS INCURSIO ADVERSARII, OMNE PHANTASMA, OMNIS LEGIO-----"


"IPSE TIBI IMPERAT, QUI TE DE SUPERNIS CAELORUM IN INFERIORA TERRAE DEMERGI PRAECIPIT......"


"ECCE OMNES".

THANKSGIVING DAY: UNFAIR FOR PEOPLE WITH ILLNESSES
=========================================


it was thanksgiving day today. i went to work, time and a half ang bayad. and at work, there's plenty of food. there's the traditional turkey with stuffing in it. , green beans, corn bread, sausages, pudding, sweet potato, squash pudding, corn on the cob, pecan pie, cheese cakes of all varieties, ham with its sidings of mash potatoes and all, including ham hocks and other soul food, from the african american community. i brought to work "molo" together with my food warmer. i made it with crab meat, shrimp and ground pork in heavy chicken soup stock. my food was the first one that disappeared.

but with all of the good food at work--- none is good for me. my sugar is high, i am having tremor, and palpitation. after four hours of work, i told my boss, i don't feel well-- so i went home.

then i went to pick up my wife at her sister's house, where the whole family is there to celebrate thanksgiving. the house is only four blocks away from my house. ther's lots of cars at the street and driveway. i cannot get into it cuz my two boys cars are also blocking the entire driveway. i was so upset cuz i cannot eat anything. i saw my youngest son and told him to move his car--- he did not heard me. then i saw my eldest son, again i told him to move his car--- hindi ako pinansin. so i parked my car blocking all the cars in the driveway. i was very upset, cuz i know when i walked into the house, people are eating and all will ask me to eat and i cannot eat any of the stuff. i ended up eating only pistacio nuts, while everybody is eating all the good food. i did not enter the main dining room, i just sat down in the linving room by the fireplace.

they have again the turkey, ham and all sorts of desserts, like leche flan, cheese cake, boston creme pie, all different kinds of pie( except pinay pie--- movie yata yon).and of course-- i cooked also matamis na saging, camote with sago, then you have to put some corned gata-- instead of milk, then yelo. they all like it, including the kano in laws. of course hindi puwede sa akin also. of course -- i also cooked puto bumbong, from the scratch. at 4am of thanksgiving day, i am already grating the coconut that i have bought at the vietnamese store which is at least 50miles from my house, just to abide with the request of my wife. i bought also the fresh ube from there and after the niyog, i have to grate the ube. i have the "bumbungan".

guess what---hindi rin puwede sa akin.

i only ate carrot sticks with wisconsin cheese.that all for me for the hoilday eating galore. i hate the holiday if i am sick. i already took the "ampalaya pills" from pinas and the diabetes pills--- the sugar is still up, until i stabilize my thyroid problem, i will always have this diabetes problem.

i ate the pomelo which cost me 9usd, and my wife was screaming at me that my sugar is going to go up and i have taken my blood pessure pills and i shud not eat any grapefruit or drink any grapefruit juice, or else i will be in big trouble.

there's so much illness in mybody. i wonder when will this end.

THE UNJUST CRITIC BEHIND A CURTAIN
===========================


i received an anonymois email the other night, that made my two boys very upset and was asking me to stop doing this blogspot---- but i got encouragements from friends i have met in the blog spot also.


on the direct instructions of my two boys, they told me to publish excerpts of what was said in the anonymous email that i have received, or else they will be involve in my blogspot and will be the ones to publish it with or without my permission. so in the direct order of my two sons, i am publishing some of the words that was said to me and my blog spot by the" DUWAGS".

111. " your blog is so bland and does not have any appeal at all-- both in looks, appearances and is not inviting to read and visit. don't you know anything about creativity in the web. use your brain--- and ingenuity--- pare".

222. " what kind of narratives are you publishing?... do you think you're audience and people surfing the blog and web are that stupid --- like you --that you have to remind us some things that we already knew about? grow up ass hole"!

333. "all the comments that you recieved are from your family!... i just happened to stumble on this spot of yours and immediately saw what kind of pea brain you have. mayroong kang nasasagasaan--- in some of the topics that you touch!... try to be more tactful and use at least a lot of caution when you make ratchada on things that u pretend you know--- but you don't know shit at all".

444. "after you have read this comments of ours--- listen to some of the silent laughters, there are some people who agrees with me on the things i have critic you with". look at the image that we are sending---- it will really give you the best insights of what we are talking about and saying about you"...


555. the rest are all bad words and insults in tagalog.


NOW MY TWO BOYS ARE HAPPY THAT I HAVE SPREAD OUT THESE THINGS FROM THE EMAIL OF THE "Duwags".

I AM GOING TO BED NOW, TOMORROW IS THANKSGIVING DAY, AND I HAVE TO WORK IN THE AFTERNOON. MY FAMILY WILL HAVE A LATE LUNCH BEFORE I GO TO WORK IN THE AFTERNOON.

TO THE "DUWAGS" THAT SENT ME THE EMAIL--- HAPPY THANKS GIVING TO YOU GUYS-- I HOPE YOU KNOW THE MEANING OF IT!!

AN OPEN REPLY TO AN ANONYMOUS EMAIL THAT I HAVE RECEIVED TODAY
===================================================


damn it is so cold. after work on the way to my car at the parking lot, the windchill factor is 28 degrees below zero not TO mention the actual temp of 20 degrees. then when i arrived home and opened up my computer, i have this email whose address is bogus and i just want to reply to it openly, point by point:

111. i know the email came from pinas. i checked with my staff in pinas, they said they called the office where this email originated n nobody knows who sent the email. the address is an office in makati. but i don't need to pursue it--- if the person or person(s) who sent this email does not want to be known, then so be it. in tagalog ang tawag diyan "DUWAG". i will not hold the company where the email was sent. MAYBE THEY KNOW WHO SENT IT -- MAYBE THEY DONT.


222. the sender is using the polite plural "WE" . but i am sure they are not polite. maybe they are trying to tell me only that there are a number of them or a group of them. one can never tell or assume. i don't want to assume. i will just think that the sender of this horrendous email is using the polite plural "WE".


333. the sender(s) are/is telling me that they find my blogspot so bland and so not appealling, i just want to say:"i have never any intention to make my blogspot appealling to anybody, i did this to have a release of my frustrations and as a hobby". " i don't have to create a colorful blogspot, cuz i really don't know how to do it--- am i at fault if i don't know how to do it?" "if people wants to read what i put in my blogspot, they are welcome to it, i don't have to make it appealling and colorful to the eyes of anybody, for attraction purposes, any visitor should make his/her own judgement if they don't want the entry(ies) all they have to do is go surf another blogspot."


444. you said that nobody reads and leaves comments on my entries except same people who seems to be my relatives." to be honest with this sender, my relatives knows i have a blogspot, but only one of my brother reads it--- but not very often, he has works to do also and is always busy." " the rest who reads and leave comments in my blog are people who became my friends thru the web--(i sincerely hope they are my friends cuz i think of them as friends) and if they leave messages--maybe they like my entry(ies) -- but if nobody leaves any comments in all my entires, still well and good with me--- at least i was able to post something that i think i like and i love doing".


555. again, this email sender said, nobody seems to like my entries: "well i think if you read the bottom part of my blogspot, one will see that there's more than a thousand visitors in my site--- i am not the one who did the visiting of more than a thousand in my own site, i don't have the liberty and all the time to do it-- i have two jobs to take care of".


666. the many sarcastic remarks and those insulting words that was said about me and my entires and my blogspot: "i have no time to dwell on this and those words and innuendos does not bother me at all-- contrary to what you people are saying-- i am an educated person and i don't have to publish my degrees that i hold and have finished nor the schools and universities that i have studied and graduated upon". " but i assure you, i have faced two revalidas and defended three thesis works".


777. the many criticism about lots of my entries: " i just want to tell you that all my entries that i create and logged and enter in my blogspot are all mine and the rest, if i have to get it from any source, books or literature--- i always write down the name(s) of the person(s) and where my source is." this is an open web site and i speak and write the international language-- i could be sued for anything that i claim that is mine but is not my creation(s)".


in all--- i wanted to tell those sender(s) of this email--- try to use LOGIC when you send something. let yourself be known. i won't be after after you and strangle you, or slit your throat, or pluck your eyes out. that is not me.

don't you worry, YOU PEOPLE OF INTRIGUE, i will try my best to cope up with your expectations next time. if i get tired and cannot cope with your expectatiosn and demands of me -- i will just stop the blog. its not the end of the world for me if i am not part of the BLOGSPOT and this is not my bread and butter.

HAPPY THANKS GIVING TO YOU OR TO YOU ALL--- WHOEVER YOU ARE.

THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING
=====================

thanksgiving is only 3days away. lots of people now are in preparation to buy all the turkey and the ham and all the trimmings needed for the thanksgiving feast on thursday. i don't have time to prepare for this, my wife will be the one to take care of the cooking of the turkey for the traditional dinner, i will be working and again, on this special occassion again. this type of work that i do, is so unfair, cuz my dept is open 24hrs a day 365 days a year. i always get to work all the holidays. but at any rate if i work this thanksgiving day, being a holiday, i will be paid time and a half. not bad, but uncle sam will get lots of it in taxes.

when i went to work this afternoon, the wind is blowing and there were lots of flts that was cancelled again out of chicago o'hare airport. of course there will be lots of people who will have to be diverted on their flts and of course their bags will be rerouted too. so, all the fucking pax will be calling again and it will be one hell for all of us at the complaints department.

as soon as i sat down and plug myself on the fon at 530pm, my first call was a fucking ass hole, who was immediately screaming and will not listen to explanation. it seems that every 2nd or 3rd call that i got this evening are people who are all so rude and boisterous , loud, uncivilized, mother fuckers and assholes on the fon. all of us were so hard up on the calls this evening. i am sure when i return to work this afternoon, it will still be the same, cuz there's lots of trvellers now for the thanksgiving holidays and there will be lots of complaints.

funny, for this evening calls that i got, more women are cursing and screaming this evening. very few men cursed me out -- but all the women-- they are all bitches on the fon. there is one woman who came all the way from Tunisia and was so sarcastic on the fon. as soon as she started the sarcasm on the fon, i immediately told her that her sarcasm is not going to change anything, her bag is still in Tunisia and it has not been forwarded. of course, the next thing the bitch said was: " i need your name and i will file major complaints against you!". ok... like as if i am scared to get fired. she cud kiss my ass for all i care. if i get fired, then tough luck. there won't be anybody left at the complaints dept cuz all pax is saying to everybody that they will write letter of complaints and get us all fired.

last friday, there was a letter of complaint against me. the acting supervisor called me at her office and showed it to me. then she was waiting for any reaction from me after i have read the letter. it took us at least 2second, before one of us said something. i will not say something, in the first place, i only advised the pax what the airport told me about his bag. the fucking complainant was saying in his letter to fire me. so i told the acting spvsr that she has to do what she has to do. the complainant was also saying that i was too condescending to him cuz when he asked for my name, i have to spell it to him. so i told the acting spvsr, that i only followed what the dumb ass asked me to do--- spell my last name. i dont know why i have to be condescending about it.

the acting spvsr kept on asking me if i am upset. i kept on telling her that i cannot be upset and i am not upset cuz this letter of complaint does not scare me at all. i told her, if all the work that i am doing is not their "cup of tea", then all she has to do is file the legal proceedings of getting rid of me. but---they cannot do anything. cuz i told the acting stupid spvsr, the letter is just hear say. this will not hold water in any court of law, unless the spvsr is on the other line on the fon listening to what i have said to the pax--- then she can create a case against me. I AM A UNION STEWARD and i work during the day in a law firm as a "para legal" and there is no way i will be scared of this stupid letters.

just a tip to all those kababayan who wants to come over or who is coming over to the states and wants to work in the kind of work i do----- make sure you have a very strong inner self control and should be very gutsy--- or else you will have a heart attck. not me-- the pax will have a heart attack first before me. i am a SEASONED COUNTER ATTACKER. the pay is good---very good and the benefits are great--- very great.

i hope there is a pax of my airline reading this blog spot of mine, i'd like to say to them:

"DROP DEAD".

EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG:
(compiled by: Paul KIrchner)
---------------------------------------------


AN AIRPLANE'S BLACK BOX IS BLACK....every military plane carries a "black box" which record flt data and cockpit conversation, but actually the box color is actually "BRIGHT ORANGE".
======

ARABIC NUMBERS CAME FROM ARABIA....actually, it should be HINDU-ARABIC numbers. the hindi arabic numbers we use today were developed in india a.d.500, with some of the numerals showing up in Hindu manuscripts dating as far back as 300b.c.
======

BANANAS ARE PICKED GREEN SO THAT THEY DON'T SPOIL BEFORE THEY'RE SOLD...actually it seems logical that bananas are picked green so that they won't spoil before they are sold, but it's not true. they are picked green because they become almost inedible if allowed to ripen on the stalk.
======

BREAST CANCER AFFLICTS ONLY WOMEN.... though breast cancer is relatively rare in men, nearly 1,000 are diagnosed with the disease every year.
======

BULLS HATE THE COLOR READ....actually bulls are not particularly enraged by the color of red, as they are unable to distinguised any colors at all. when a matador uses and waves the red cape, he is attempting to excite the crowd more than the bull.
======

COBRAS CAN BE HYPNOTIZED BY THE MUSIC OF THE SNAKE CHARMERS...actually this is not the case, all snakes,including the cobra, is deaf. the cobra is just following the movement of the snake charmers flute.
======

EATING LIKE A BIRD MEANS HAVING A SMALL APPETITE...actually this is a falasy. birds eat more and has a big appetite. they tend to eat as much as their own weight.
======

ELEPHANTS ARE AFRAID OF MICE...actually is not true. this is an irony. elephants have poor eye sight and maybe disturb by mice, but they are not afraid of the rodent. in fact there's lots of cases wherein the elephant, picks up the rodent with his trunk and then stomp it with its feet and crush the poor rodent.
======

THE EVENING STAR IS A STAR...the star that appears brightly over the horizon shortly after sunset is often called the evening star, but actually it is not a star at all. this are either venus or mercury reflecting the sun's illumination.no wonder nothing happens when you wish upon a star.
======

HUMIDITY -- WHEN IT'S 100 PERCENT IT'S RAINING.....actually when the humidity is 100pct, it's not raining, its foggy.
======

PING-PONG IS A CHINESE GAME....it is only because the chinese loves this sport very much, but they are not the ones who invented it. PING-PONg was originated by british army officers stationed in india in the 1880's. it's real name is table tennis. Ping-Pong is a registered name and trademark of the makers of table tennis equipments.
======

RAW EGGS ARE HEALTHIER THAN COOKED EGGS...wrong. the only thing in raw eggs that is missing is the bacteria that causes salmonella poisoning.
======

ROSY CHEEKS MEANS GOOD HEALTH....ruddy cheeks has long been associated with good health and vigor, and pallied ones with illness. just as often, rosy cheeks indicate illness. in children, redden cheeks means an onset of a fever. certain forms of tuberculosis and heart diseas also cause robust looking high color cheeks as well as high drinking.
======

URINE IS SMELLY AND FULL OF GERMS...urine is normally odorless when it leaves the body.the foul smell is emitted by the bacteria when it sits stagnant.in an emergency, urine is more safer to use to clean a wound than use water that comes from questionable source. folk remedies have used urine as a mild antiseptic to treat athlete's foot and extrernal ear infections.
======

HOLLAND IS THE HOME OF THE TULIPS....actually the tulips were not native to holland. they originated in asia and north africa. the bulbs was brought to europe from turkey in 1550's.
======

ELECTRIC FANS COOL THE AIR....an electric fan cannot cools the air, it can only make you feel cooler by speeding the evaporation of the sweat off your body. it may also circulate air from a cooler room to a warmer part. at the same time, the heatof the motor elevates the room temperature,plus there is some small amount of heat generated by the friction of the air against the blades of the fan.

THE TAGALOG REPETITIVE SYLLABARIC WORDS
=================================

a major hospital in greater chicagoland area has employed a lot of pinay nurses in their staff. here's a good example of what a TAGALOG REPETITIVE SYLLABARIC WORD(s) means:

two pinay nurses entered the elevator on the 17th floor of the hospital, then on the 15th floor, two caucasian doctors entered also the elevator. then the same elevator opened up on the 14th floor and behold--- two pinay nurses was standing outside the elevator -- and when the door opened up they asked the pinay nurses inside the elevator:"BABABABA?" then the pinays inside the elevator said:''BABABA"! the elevator proceeded to the 10th floor and it opened again-- same scenario happened another group of pinays outside the elevator asked the group of pinays inside:" BABABABA"? the insider answered in chorus:"BABABA"! then on the 9th floor all of them got out of the elevator and went on their own ways, leaving the two caucasian doctors inside the elevator.

the two caucasian doctors looked at each other and one of them said: "GOD DAMN...THEY WERE TALKING LIKE SHEEPS AND THEY UNDERSTOOD EACH OTHER"!

MGA HAYOP NA SWINDLER SA PINAS
=========================




this afternoon, i was visited by some american friends of mine. they were checking on me on how and what happened to me on the visit that i just recently did to pinas. we talked endlessly about their opinion about pinas and the many things that is happening there right now. christmas is approaching again, and so i talked about the poor kababayans of ours who have nothing to share and have to eat for this celebration of thanks and joy this december.

then they showed me some pictures of the children that they have officially adopted by way of financial support. i checked the entire entry on their journals and communications that they have made and have done during the two years they have enlisted themselves on this program. ( i cannot give out the name of the charity).

when i read all their entries and saw the communications and corrsepondences, i have flared up --- cuz i know the place and the pictorials that was sent to them were boguz. these pics that shows the very sad plight of small kids in pinas is no longer existing. so as not to embarass these friends of mine, i told them to leave their correspondent address to me of this charitable institution(kuno!) and i will check with them thru the office of my sister in Pinas. i got an immediate response from my sister--- there is no such thing as what this charitable institution is bragging about--- there is no such name listed with SEC also. i am about to expose this marauders and vultures but my sister cautioned me to be prudent about it. she told me this is a syndiucate...she told me to let the proper authorities handle the matter. but the problem is...this same govt authority is in cohort with these F..fing charitable institution (kuno). but one thing for sure, these friends of my mine won't be sending money anymore.

MGA HAYOP NA SWINDLER SA PINAS....

"ASK NOT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY,
BUT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU"
===================================


i have returned bak home, and of course, i can always say when i am bak home in pinas, i miss my other home in the states, cuz i left my wife, my two boys and my dog in that order.

i will never profess and say and criticize my pinas by saying that its hot in there, or there's lots of basura and stench in the streets - - just like what my sister bak home is telling me -- "you have to love your country, no matter what"....

i do love my pilipinas, but can i really criticize the traffic! cuz this hampers the economy of the country.

again, going bak, when i was in pinas, the immortal words of JFK during his inaugural address is always ringing in my ears.

the first premise, "ASK NOT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY...."

i think all of us, even if i carry an american passport, can always claim that we have done already so many things for our country.we have sacrificed so many things for HER, the motherland. look at all the overseas worker, even if they are criticized as JAPAYUKI, they are still contributing to the country, even if they are called DOMESTIC HELPER, they are still contributing to the country, even if they are TNT in the states or elsewhere in the world, they are contributing to the country. ALL OF US ABROAD ARE CONTRIBUTING TO OUR COUNTRY. just think of the thousands of dollars and other foreign currencies being remitted to the phils. these are hard earned money by simple people, who for the love of their family back home and of course of PILIPINAS, is sending back money to their love ones, which in turn is being used by our country as dollar reserve to pay off our debts.


the second premise...."BUT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU".....

when you dig deeper and dwell on these words, and think about the phils. who is being run and managed by dogs and vultures and sharks and all----one cannot really dwell on these great words and challenges of the great JFK. our country is one among the many countries in the 3rd world, whose politicians, becomes a millionaire overnite. can JUAN DELA CRUZ, adhere to these premise of WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN....right now, all of us, even expatriates, shud join forces, even by way of prayers and joining in the crusades and campaigns to expose and bad mouth the politicians who are bleeding our country at the deterrent of the COMMON TAO...of JUAN DELA CRUZ.

if i may exaggerate the immortal words of the great JFK...
patterned for the phils scenario right now.


"ASK NOT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY...YOU HAVE DONE IT ALL, AND NOTHING HAPPENED".

THE ENLIVEN SPIRIT OF X'MAS IN MY COUNTRY
================================


upon landing in manila, one won't be able to notice the different x'mas decor and buntings. i landed at 1145PM at NAIA 11 nov, and the lanterns and lights are so beautiful and very colorful. i love the spirit in my country when x'mas is coming.

i was picked up at the airport by the company car of my sister's company and i told the driver to slow down the driving, cuz i want to see the different lanterns that is on display and for sale along Sucat road. i was so homesick stricken, even i was only here last week of sept. i love my country and the spirit of the people when x'mas is coming.

the next day, i have to wake up early, dived into the pool and relax a little bit then went to see my parents at their house inside the company compound and complex. my mother was already seated at her garden, underneath the canopy of green foliages that enveloped their entire house. as soon as i approached my mother, i immedaitely introduced myself and kissed her and told her how much i love her and missed her. my father was still at the heart center for his monthly check up, after his quadruple bypass four years ago. after a long chit chat with my mother, while waiting for my father to return back home from the Heart Center, i took one of the car and told the company security that i will go out to Alabang Town Center, cuz this is only at least a mile from our house.

as soon as i walked into the place, i was so stricken by the showcase and the x'mas decor and display from all the store and the mall, in itself. i was transformed like a little kid, enjoying all the beautiful arrangements and lights inside the mall. there's lots of Santa Claus, attired in the usual garb but the beard was made of abaca shavings and it was so beautiful. there's lots of xmas decor on sale with the touch of Pilipinas on it. very nicely executed and done using local materials and of course "PINOY INGENUITY" and all.

the next day, after having a full day and lunch with my parents and the rest of the family, i headed to the Fiesta Mall, which is also very close to our house. again, when i entered the mall, i was again mesmerized and was so impressed about the decor of the entire place. there's so much talents and ingenuities that was displayed by whoever created the decor inside the mall, with the touch again of Pilipinas in it, using local materials and all.

Friday, i have to visit Greenhills to buy some stuff my wife asked me to buy for her. the entire place was so crowded - - wall to wall of humanity and the stuff that is on sale is unbelievable. this is a place where all fakes could be purchased and be bought in a very cheap price (if you are earning in dollars) i bought so much CD's and DVD's that will make the customs in chicago when i return to tax me to the cealing. hopefully not -- cuz i got the receipt and bank exchange rate to show that i have not exceeded the limit of purchase entitled for me.

makati, especially Ayala ave was all blazing with so many lights and decor. when you walk around the places i visited, nobody will think that this is a 3rd world country, who according to the world bank was behind on all their payments and obligations to the loans that was drawn by the govt.


THE ENLIVEN SPIRIT OF X'MAS IN MY COUNTRY.......

I LOVE IT VERY MUCH.

MGA KABABAYANG KONG....
talaga naman oh.
===================


last 10th november, i boarded a direct flt from ORD to HKG. being an airline employee, i have to take my chances to be seated. the flt was weight restricted, i was not able to be seated either at first class or business class, so i have to contend myself in coach. because the agent at the gate was my friend, i was given a seat on a three seater area by the gulley all by myself. nobody besides me, the two seats was empty so at least i cud streth out myself. infront of me was seated a pinoy couple from canada on their way to pinas, and seated besides them, window side was an american, who -- most probably have already strike out a conversation earlier that i did not noticed. the flt was already airborned for 5hrs and all the pax are so quiet, either sleeping or watching the in flt movies. since i cannot sleep and the cabin was so quiet, one could but hear the conversation that is going on infront of me. here's some of the statements that i overheared.(sorry...tsismoso ako)

" so you folks are going home finally for vacation. i like your country very much, i saw lots of good brochures about boracay, el nido and some of the beaches of mindoro also".

"oh yeah, they are good places in the phils."

" i'd like to go there sometime, maybe next year for my next vacation. i was told that it is so cheap and the people are very hospitable."

"oh no, you don't want to go there, you will only be kidnapped. you are an american and the rebels like to kidnap americans like you".



MGA KABABAYANG KONG....talaga naman oh.

when i landed in hkg, it was already the 11th of november. i have to take the last flt of CX to manila. also, since i was taking the ID 90 seat for this flt, i was trying to let the paying pax to be accomodated first. so i stayed very behind, and was the last one to board the plane. there's lots of seamen and DM helper who are all also anxious to get bak home and be with their families. i was seated at the very end of the plane -- seat 56C. to my surprise when i went to the last section of the plane, there's arround 27 young MORMOM Elders seated all over the last section of the plane. i was seated at the aisle, and besides me was one of the Mormon elder. he started to strike out a conversation, and was so excited to come to the phils. and evagelized and mormonized the country. he was telling me that they are around 27 in all, ranging from 19 to 24 years of age and just finished the training at their seminary in Utah. they are going to stay in the phils. for two years.

seated on the other side of the same row, where i was seated, are two BADINGS, who are so noisy and very obnoxious. these two BADANGS, was able to encourage the pinay flt attendant for them to be moved on the seat directly infront of the movie screen. the BADING, from the loud, squeaking, guttural voice wants to be transferred on that seat cuz as he said:

" para malapit ako doon sa poging na iyon!" (sabay tile ng hinayupak na bakla)

the snack was served and while the trays were being collected by the flt attendant, this Bading, was talking very loud to this young, robust and good looking MORMON elder. the Bitch was saying:

"you know ha! i can teach you how to talk in tagalog and i am a good teacher" (sabay bunghalit ulit ng tile ang putang bakla)

then finally we landed, thank God for it - - cuz i will be rid of this obnoxious BADING.

when finally the door of the plane was opened up, and all are standing, waiting fo the signal from the flt attendant to move towards the door, the BADING , with the same guttural, high pitch voice said to the Mormon Elder again:

" hoy, you have to pray for me hah!, i did something bad last nite in hkg-- very very bad"
(sabay bunghalit ng tawa ulit ang hinayupak na Bading)

"hoy, you pray for all of us (then wave his fingers and swept the entire plane while saying his obit) also, hah -- be careful, cuz you will be in the phils for two years and there will be plenty of killing and dead people. bang bang bang"(and motion her hands like holding a gun, and again, started laughing again, in the same fucking tone of voice)

the Mormon Elder seated besides me, looked at me and said:

"i am sorry!"...so i told him " sorry for what? you did not do a thing! it was that fag who was creating a scene! do you think prayers will save his hide from the eternal flame?"

then the young elder just smiled at me -- i shook his hand and told him to be good in what he will be doing and love his chosen faith and be an example to the people that he wil evangelized. he asked for my name and when i gave him my home address in pinas and chicago, he told me that he will correspond with me, cuz i was so nice to him and he was able to get some insights about what to expect during his two years stint as a missionary in the phils.

as for thar BADING, he was still talking so loud with no sense at all -- to the hearing distance of all the pax of the flt to Manila.

here's one couple trying to print a bad image about the phils to an american who was so enthusiastic to come to the phils and see and feel the hospitality of the people and one obnoxious BADING who in my honest opinion, have given a bad start and bad reputation to these young MORMON elders.

i am not saying that all our KABABAYANs are bad. i am just making a statement:


MGA KABABAYANG KONG....talaga naman oh

NIGHT OF ANGER AND FRUSTRATION
==========================


for the past two days, o'hare international airport is having weather problem. especially last night when there was zero visibility. plenty of flts has been cancelled and there's a lot of diversion of flts to different cities that cannot land at o'hare airport. of course, everytime there is irregular operations at this airport, it creates a domino effect on all the other airports and flts. THEREFORE, my department, being the complaints department will be bombarded with calls from people who does not understand and will not accept reasons and explanations. if you don't have a strong heart and a lot of patience, on this kind of job that i do, one will be compelled to drop dead and have a heart attack. americans have a nasty habit of cursing and swearing and calling names the other person on the other end of the fon when they cannot get what they want in life and their demands.

the civility of these people disappears when they are on the fon asking and demanding what they want in life. my department registered more than two thousand incoming calls during my 8 hr shift. i got calls who kept on telling me that they will file major complaints and get me fired cuz i cannot produce info on the whereabouts of their bags. i was about to tell one of the pax to go fuck himself and die, but i was able to control myself. this fucking woman told me i don't have the right to be on the fon if i cannot give her an answer on her questions. guess what was the fucking questions of this fucking bitch! the fucking bitch said she has three cashmere long coats in her garment bag and a box of expensive jewelries worth 10 thousand dollars. not to mention four pairs of shoes and a toilettrie kit, and demands that i imemdiately pay her cuz she said definitely and for sure, the bag is lost. the fucking bitch kept on yelling on the fon, then when she got exhausted, i told her to wait for the claim form that will be mailed to her by the claims department. this bitch is definitely pulling my legs. how could youi fit three cashmere long coat inside a garment bag, plus shoes and toiletrie kit. this woman most probably was thinking i was born yesterday.the bitch does not know also that all airlines has a disclaimer, that we are not responsible for JEWELRIES, CASH, PERISHABLE ITEMS, ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENTS AND GADGETS,CAMERA AND ANTIQUES,BREAKABLE ITEMS that are checked inside a bag. they don't read the fine prints in their airline tickets.

people are demanding to have a hotel vouchers, meal allowances, clothing allowances and monetary compensation. i did not issue any such things, no airline will issue such things if it is weatehr related problem.

i registered to have received 120 incoming irrate calls during my 8 hrs shift. i almost lost my voice talking contineously on the fon and almost busted my ear drums listening to screaming and wild pax on the fon. one stupid asshole was demanding that i give him free car rental while his flt was delayed, the other is asking me to issue a voucher so that he can buy his shot gun for hunting. another stupid ass pax said to his friend in my hearing distance on the fon, to ask anything on the fon cuz i have an accent on the fon and a foreigner. he said all foreigners are stupid and will give them anything they want. i told this asshole, i heard it and told him this is one foreigner that will not give into their demands. of course, they got my name, and said they will get me fired. HALLELUAH, KISS MY ASS. like as if i'm scared. this is one foreigner who might have an accenton the fon, but i don't have an accent in my brain.

on the way home at 230am -- the road was so eerie looking. i can't see a thing. it was so foggy and so misty. i don't have any fog light in my car so i have to turn on to high beam for my light and have to drive very slowly inside the tollway system.

i survive the ordeal last night. i am so happy i am off for two days and will not be getting the aftermath of peoples complaints today and tomorrow. there will still be lots of angry calls on the fon from these brutal and unforgiving kind of people, because of the delay for two days. it is just beginning to clear up today.

some states in the midwest has begun to have 8 inches of snow fall and minneapolis is also beginning to register snow falls. this is the beginning again of plenty of delayed flt and cancellation because of weather problem. after the delayed golf bags during summer flts, this is the time people will be calling for the delayed snow board, snow equipments, shot guns for hunting and ski equipments.

NO REST FOR THE WEARY.
