To our Heroes, Fallen 44

image

Being a soldier is a tough and dangerous job.

No one can ever explain how it was difficult to stay away from their families and go to the most dangerous area on the country where you are clueless if you can go back home or not.

It is not an easy profession. It requires a servant heart and a dedicated spirit. It takes passion for your work and a compassion for other people.

The SAF 44, who ended their lives on an encounter at Mamasapano, Maguindanao with the MILF and BIFF in search for an international terrorist Marwan, will never be forgotten.

To our fallen heroes, we will always salute and honor your bravery. We can never payback what you have done on our country just to attain peace.

And to the leader who is behind this operation – still unknown as of this moment, I condemned your action! A leader has its essential role to lead the troops. This operation was made into secret to prevent the MILF from getting any hint regarding their plan. They did not even inform the AFP regarding their operation.

I just hope that leaders who do not pursue their personal agenda will rise up! We need strong and effective leaders who don’t mind if his name will be recognized or not.

A leader is not after the distinction or praises of other people, his always after serving his fellow countrymen.

But when are we going to have this kind of leader?
When another soldiers will sacrifice their lives?
When another operation will fail its mission?
Or when we have a mature leader on the government who would not answer safe but admit his shotcomings?

I still wonder when are we going to have this kind of leader?

The fallen 44 should have not been killed if not for a leader who allowed the operation without considering the worst and coordinating with the AFP.

May this event serve as a lesson for each of us.

I demand the government to take an immediate action regarding this.

Let’s not be apathetic about this. They deserve Justice!

It’s always a good time!

No more delay! At last, after all the conflict of schedules, We – my high school friends – had an outing to embrace the heat of summer. This is my first outing – to think that this outing happened on the first week of may – for my entire summer vacation this year. But more than sensing the sun rays and glaring heat, spending a day with the people  whom you could easily describe even in the simplest word is the best. So let the pictures do the talking, enjoy!

This is paradise!! (Tagaytay Country Homes)

The Filipino Spirit!

                Recently, a calamity hit the Metro Manila, Philippines. The strength of Southwest monsoon or habagat  caused a continuous heavy downpour of rain which resulted to flash flood, landslide and deaths over the city. But despite of that, the Spirit of Filipino continues to outshine the negativity that the calamity brought.

And this makes me proud:

               Even the tired rescuers still have the heart to smile and pose. And that’s why I’m proud. We Filipinos even with the struggles we are undergoing, we still put a smile on our face. We make others happy by our smile. It’s really true when they say that you get to see the real person in times of struggles and problems. Do you agree?

              Of course, the spirit of helping! We Filipinos are known for that. When in time of need, Filipinos lend their hand to others.

True Filipino Spirit; helping each other.

           Even with the negativity that others say to my country and to my race, I am proud with my head up high that I am a Filipino. We may not be as rich or as influential as other country, we have the values, the spirit of giving, the spirit of helping, and the spirit of smiling, that I can be proud of. And those values cannot be equated to the richness of others. No matter what will others say to the Philippines.

          Do not be swayed on the news that you’ve watched. Philippines is not as worse as you’ve predicted and seen on the television. Philippines is a good country with hospitable people living overhead.

          Anyway, have the heart to donate. Read my previous post for more information!

God bless everyone!

long hiatus

Sorry for the super long hiatus. So the main reason why I had a long vacation on blogging isn’t because of I’m on vacation but because our computer finally blew its last breath. lol. haha. Kinda sad, since a lot of relevant events happened these past few weeks. One, the history made by Jessica Sanchez. Congratulations Jessica! You are our World idol! I hope you saw how I jump literally when I knew you were on the finale. And because of you, I had 872 views in just a day. I never really expect for that. Two, the impeachment trial of CJ Corona.  Finally, it’s already on rest. I hope  the decision would be on favor for the Filipinos whether convict or acquit. Anyway, i promise to be on the world of blogging soon :DD

Feel the Heat of Summer ♥

Life’s most awesome and cool people – HIGH SCHOOL FRIENDS =) We headed to sea breeze to have an outrageous swimming courtesy/treat – as a promise for us- of one of my friends.

Had a blast with them. I could never elucidate how happy I am, since this is something terrific and unforgettable for the following reasons. One, it’s our very first time to have an outing with numerous foods, so gazillion thanks to our well-blessed friends Bianca and Clarence. =) Second, it’s our first outing as “graduates” of Pasay Science 😐

Perhaps this photo can reveal how happy I am. Mcdo Shot XD

Priceless moments!

Anyhow, I’m both happy and sad for this event. Happy, since we find time despite conflicts of schedule and sad, since it’s still unknown if will get to see each other again and set an event like this.

Hanggang sa muli nating pagkikita! walang iwanan!
