Dare to watch this video and weep...by Rom (English | Miscellaneous Category | Realism | blogs)
Kamakailan lamang ay may ibinahagi akong blog mula sa email na aking natanggap. Naglalaman ito ng isang artikulo mula sa panulat ng isang Malu Fernandez, ang artikulo ay nalathala sa People's Asia magazine na naglalaman ng masasakit at di kanais nais na komentaryo ng isang manunulat patungkol lalo na sa mga kababayan nating OFW. Masakit ang mga komentaryo, lalo na sa kadahilanang hindi ito nakatuntong sa makatarungan at balanseng perspektiba, kundi sa porma ng panunuya at pang mamata ng isang nagkukunwaring "mayaman" at "matalinong nilalang".
maraming nagalit, umuusok ang komentaryong pahina ng tingog.com kung saan ko nasumpungan ang mga reaksyon ng ating mga kapwa pilipino patungkol sa isyu na ito. Nakakagalit mabuti sana kung nakakatulong ang kanyang mga kritisismo upang lalong paunlarin ang kaugalian o gawi ng bawat Pilipino.
Pakitingnan naman itong nakuha kong blogs pls...Kakainis!!!by Rom (English | Writing | Review/Criticism | Realism)
palagay ko bawat pilipino ay nararapat magbahagi ng opinyon dito sang ayon man o hindi. nakakagalit ang mga ganiot uri ng tao lalo na kapag kapwa pilipino pa ang gumawa. pls see tingog.com for further info about this subject.
With the recent irresponsible, elitist, bigoted, and discriminating comments made by Manila Standard Today columnist Marlu Fernandez in her People Asia magazine article “From Boracay to Greece” in which she makes many belittling comments about Overseas Filipino Workers and Filipinos in general, the response from Filipino bloggers have been overwhelming, and have not been light on the criticism. When do we say enough is enough and that we will no longer stand for the bigotry and discrimination that takes place, not only in this country but all around the world?
my so called lifeby Rom (English | Reading | My So-Called Life | Non-paying | Essay | Realism | blogs)
I hate it! I really hate it! I never thought it still grows inside me, after five years, it's still boiling inside and burning like hell, an unending burst of flame. It all triggers as I watched this evening news, Rolando Navarette, a former Filipino WBC boxing champ, now a sick and poor as rat, forgotten, has been, beats his live in partner who is half of his age. The poor women suffered a broken face, and a broken head as the hammer smashed into her cranial area, a black eye and tons of bruises tells the entire story.
I felt a cold damp on my nape, after the sudden flush of anger, I sweat but I feel cold, suddenly I noticed my thumb on the TV's remote, it's shaking as if pushing the button is such a burden. The TV is finally off, I don't know how I did it but I shut it off, as soon as my memories start to play on a different channel in my mind.
Despondence (Sonnet)by esoteric_hermit (English | Filipino Translation | Miscellaneous Category | Literary Work | Realism | grief)
Melancholy gnaws through my jaded soul
and jagged shards of glass pierce my body
cold raindrops kiss my forehead, soothingly
as I tread the empty path to solace
devoid of hope, I trudge wearily forth
in my dark mind, chaos holds dominion
the Grim Reaper beckons me to follow
his hollow eyes gazing at oblivion
my heart is crushed, but I know not the cause
I tried to seek the Lord for sanctuary
yet all I got was cold eerie silence
as I held my breath for the final hour
'Tis not what I was searching for my life
but fate has encased my spirit in pain
Byahe ng Bus ng Buhayby elirhpa (Filipino | Writing | Work-in-Progress/Online Workshop | Essay | Realism)
About several days na akong nagco-commute through work, besides ilang beses na rin akong nakkikipagsiksikan, nakikipaghabulan sa mga bus (kaya ayoko ng high heels eh) Typically tayuan dahil punuan. Indeed, ilang beses ko nang napapansin na ibat-ibang klase ng passengers particularly mga “bhoyz” ang sakay sakay nitong transport bus. Eh di eto ang siste, tayo ang lola mo, pero wag ka, ilang beses akong standing obation pero, maraming bese naman din akong binibigyan ng sit ng mga piling gentleman na to, mapateenager man or may edad. Ang saya dibah?.. Bigla ko tuloy naisip, sa panahon ngayon meron pa pala na mga nagmamagandang-loob atmga gentleman na willing ibigay ang kanilang pre-occupied sit sa mga “ghurlz” na tulad ko(kahit na ganito lang ako) Syempre di lahat ng passengers ganon. Marami pa rin ang tulog (tulug-tulugan) at mga nagpapatay malisya na walang lady na nakatayo. One time nga I saw this lady who has red half-face, yung parang birthmark all over her face… Sumakay siya along Buendia of course puno kaya tayo siya… Siguro alam niyo na sunod….? Nope mali kayo ng iniisip… tayo siya ever hanggang makarating siya sa destination niya.. Nasabi ko na lang tuloy, “ganon ba talaga?” por que ganon ba ang itsura ng isang tao di mo na tutulungan or papansisin. Super na-sad tuloy ako..

Reporting under the gunby moon (English | Writing | My So-Called Life | Realism)
The fourth estate (the media) is the watchdog of the government, it protects the interest of the public and guards the abuse powers of the unworthy official. And this institution aims to challenged and improve the methods of governance being run in our country.
But it seems that the Government, look at the media as a threat to them and not an allied in nation building. Even though it is stated in the Philippine Constitution 1986, that the freedom of the press should not be abridge; still the media practitioners could not exercise the full extent of freedom.
The case of Melinda Magsino, is just one of the hundreds of story being buried into forgetfulness, we are used to hearing radio commentators, media men, and journalist being hunted down and killed. And the Philippine masses is callous with this kinds of events. It is all part of a struggling third world country, trying to redeem itself from all the characteristics of being a third world country.
