busy doing nothing

I just thought of writing something with sense at this moment, but I just can't think of something good. my hands just can't stop from moving. LOL.

Maybe, I better share what have I gone through this day. My day was spend with nothing but a day with boring stuffs. I was really anticipating for this day because our students is going to have their case defense, but it just turned out to be one big library work.

Our CI (clinical instructor) suddenly called up telling me that the defense is canceled. I was ecstatic of course because that would mean a break for me and to my students. Too bad, our CI shrugged us to go to the library instead of going home. Imagine, jailing ourselves in the lib for almost 6 hours. LOL. that made me go insane.

Mandaya Dagmay Weaving

The Mandaya is one of Mindanao’s surviving minority tribes of the Philippines. They live in the mountainous areas above the coastal town of Davao Oriental particularly in Boston, Cateel, Bagangga, Caraga and Manay. For many generations the Mandaya have woven cloth from fibers of native abaca tree, a variety of the banana family, which is abundant in the region. The finest grade of hemp extracted from abaca stalks is stripped pounded, combed then prepared for dyeing by tying thus, the word tie-dye. The dyes are made from mud, root and other organic materials. This cloth is known locally as dagmay. It is distinguished from other tribal weaving by the intricate figures and patterns depicting the folklores and religion of the tribe. The Mandaya have carried the human and crocodile motifs to their highest expression. The crocodile is held sacred as shown by the frequency with which it appears in their decorative design. This art is handed down from generation. There is no patterns copy. E…

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 . . .
