Hi there mga blogistas, It's been a while that I was not able to post here in my blog, it's for the reason that I am so very busy with the review for the fast approaching NLE comes November 29 and 30. But I promise to really get back here after I'm done with my Board Exam. All I need at this moment is your prayer for me to pass the exam and get my license to practice the Nursing profession. I actually miss a lot from my friends and their blogs. Just continue reading my blogs even if it's outdated, and hey I would love to hear from you guys. I'll be back sooner.

Love and Peace,

Juan

Where The Wild Roses Grow

She:
They call me The Wild Rose
But my name was Elisa Day
Why they call me it I do not know
For my name was Elisa Day

He:
From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
She stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the colour of the roses
That grew down the river, all bloody and wild

She:
When he knocked on my door and entered the room
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
He wiped at the tears that ran down my face

He:
On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?"

She:
On the second day he came with a single red rose
Said: "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow"
I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed
He said, "If I show you the roses, will you follow?"

On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he knelt (stoo…

Copper Inscription: A Historical View

Here's an interesting artifact that is in no way related to other ancient Filipino artifacts we know today. Hector Santos, a Filipino History enthusiast, mentioned that this black copper piece of metal later known as the "The Laguna Copperplate Inscription" was accidentally unearthed in 1989 by a man who is dredging sands alongside the shore of Lumbang River where it emptied into Laguna de Ba'y.

As to how it is being passed down until it was brought to the National Museum of the Philippines is intriguing. Let's just put it as a history. Almost all of our artifacts containing incantations,poems,chants or what have you where burned down to ashes by this Spanish friars thinking that they are evil inspired. Unfortunately, we only have a handful of these artifacts that's preserve now.

We've lost a significant contact with our brothers in SE Asia primarily because of the impact of Spanish colonization where nothing was left for us to be really identified as &quo…

Oyog-oyog: a Lullaby

Mandayas are known to be be music lovers. The folk songs reflects their intimate relationship with Mother earth and the attitude they have towards the environment and the world. Oyog-oyog is a folk song that deals with Pagka-iso (Childhood) and Gugma nang Ginikanan (Parental Love). Here's an Oyog-oyog:

Oyog-oyog, mag oyog-oyog . . .
Masinga nang Bullawan
Diyanay yagadadallawon
Baan sumngaw makawong
Dumallaw makagwa
Walla kaw sa pangubsa
Walla kaw sa pangkawasa,
Nang mallugon diabongan mo
Magaon na siollambodan mo;
Malaygon sa gigiba
Pugtok sa llollumpasi.

Walla sa pangungubsa
Wa sa pangawasa;

Awson pagpaka-indo
Ubson magpakagawa.

La - la - la- la - larin - larin . . .

Alibata

Alibata is an ancient Filipino Writing System which sprung from an old Javanese alphabet system indirectly through Buginese. Alibata is also called as "Baybayin" in Tagalog meaning "to spell". the appearance of the Alibata letters are somewhat similar to those of the alphabet system used by our brothers in Thailand (I don't know the exact name of their alphabet system).

It just sad to note that this writing ysytem is already extinct now and there's nowhere to find a complete files except those that were displayed in our museums. I just hope that this writing system will be again introduced in our academe as it promotes self-identity among Filipinos.



Original Baybayin Script:



Baybayin Script with Spanish Modification:




Translation:
Ako si Huwan. Anak nang mga Mandaya.( I am Juan, Son of the Mandayas)


Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alibata
a soothing indigenous piece where one takes a carpet ride to a surreal world of endless wisdom of music. the musician is a certain Fingguy Flang from a T'boli tribe in Central Mindanao, Philippines. This masterpiece is entitled "Utom Klelet" ("The woodpecker").

Fatal Addiction (Ted Bundy's Final Interview)

Everyone is so obsessed with pornography thinking that this will fuel their fantasies that are unmet in real world. It's when one session isn't enough and the need to release tensions must be accompanied by pornography and slowly bringing them to stagnant pit hole and and come to a point of not getting away with it believing that it's only a "harmless addiction". They later find out this is slowly attacking their lives and taking over them. One event leading to another. It's when mind delivers a potent venom towards their behavior to do violence. Here's what pornography can do to you:

Fatal Addiction (Ted Bundy's Final Interview)

Ted Bundy, an infamous serial killer, granted an interview to psychologist James Dobson just before he was executed on January 24, 1989. In that interview, he described the agony of his addiction to pornography. Bundy goes back to his roots, explaining the development of his compulsive behavior. He reveals his addiction to har…

vanity

This artwork was photoshopped courtesty of Pax (I'm still figuring out Photoshop-Trial and error). And what's with the Godfather? well, way back college days, I used to watch the Godfather Trilogy a hundred fold times together with the barkada during our spare time, since everybody love the classic film, we decided the call our barkada- The Godfathers. The rest was history. Let's say I am Don Vito Corleone. lol. Our group had a lot of stories to tell that even a thousand and one nights would not be enough to relinquish all the stupidity we did in school, in the hospital area and every place we've been.

Rest And Sleep

hi guys, what's up? I've been very busy since last week because of my Review. Everything went very fast these days that I got no time checking my blog. Hmf, and this week is going to be a hell. I just got our updated schedule for the review and found out that I have two weeks straight review without review breathers in between, imagine that. Mind you, that would mean that I'll be seating from 8AM to 5PM the whole day and just glue myself there listening to the review experts, Argh. I was even losing my energy everytime I got home from the review. so miserable.

think and think and think

After answering a few questions from this site, http://www.ipersonic.com/ I got my so called "type of Personality" which somehow I did agree.

Analytical Thinkers are reserved, quiet persons. They like to get to the bottom of things - curiosity is one of their strongest motives. They want to know what holds the world together deep down inside. They do not really need much more to be happy because they are modest persons. Many mathematicians, philosophers and scientists belong to this type. Analytical Thinkers loathe contradictions and illogicalness; with their sharp intellect, they quickly and comprehensively grasp patterns, principles and structures. They are particularly interested in the fundamental nature of things and theoretical findings; for them, it is not necessarily a question of translating these into practical acts or in sharing their considerations with others. Analytical Thinkers like to work alone; their ability to concentrate is more marked than that of all oth…

Eternal Love, Weeee

Foreword: I received this through my email.and I really enjoy reading the whole story and that made me want to post it here.

An incredible love story has come out of China recently and managed to touch the world.
It is a story of a man and an older woman who ran off to live and love each other in peace for over half a century.



The 70-year-old Chinese man who hand-carved over 6,000 stairs up a mountain for his 80-year-old wife has passed away in the cave which has been the couple's home for the last 50 years.

Over 50 years ago, Liu Guojiang a 19 year-old boy, fell in love with a 29 year-old widowed mother named Xu Chaoqin..

In a twist worthy of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, friends and relatives criticized the relationship because of the age difference and the fact that Xu already had children.


At that time, it was unacceptable and immoral for a young man to love an older woman.. To avoid the market gossip and the scorn of their communities, the couple decided to elope and lived…

Pater Noster

The Our Father or otherwise known as the Lord's Prayer is perhaps the best known prayer that is being recited by millions of Christians around the world. This prayer which is absorbed from the Holy Scripture particularly in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke was taught by Jesus to his disciples as a manner of praying to God.

I was just struck by how the Author constructed his reflections in every line of this prayer. One thing that came into my mind was the thought of having this as a constant reminder in my day to day living. This piece challenges our faith to God as it projects a lesson why an individual should be consistent with his words and actions. What a powerful prayer indeed.sigh.


I got this from http://www.thisischurch.com/booklets/lordsprayer.htm

“Our Father"

I cannot say “Our” if religion has no room for others and their needs.

I cannot say “Father”
if I do not demonstrate this relationship in my daily living.

I cannot say “Who art in heaven”
if all my interests and pursui…
