Dabarkads at Maranatha...

Last night was my 4th time to be there in Maranatha, (I mean, it's been my nth time to be there since I always go there last year, accompanying a dear friend during Fridays,but I was hesitant to go inside).

Was happy to know that I am now somehow active in the church after a year of disappearance because of some insignificant reasons, and I am planning to keep it up as long as my feet are still capable of walking. I can still remember that someone called me a 'backslider'. I even don't know what that means. Someone said I would never change even if I would attend daily church sermons (if there is).

Yes, I am bad, too bad, but that does not mean I am deprived of the right to be good even just for a night. Besides, no one could actually say that I am a complex-minded with the physique that I have.
Now, back to the topic. I was glad that during my first time I was accompanied by May (a.k.a tambuk) inside. After a while, I saw Jam (a.k.a heavyweight) opening the gate. And Cherry (am still thinking what would be a good alias for her) greeted me 'hi' matched with a perfect smile.

The teens there were just the typical ones I used to see in school. Some are noisy, some must be fond of doing their hobby in the kitchen, some are small, some are tall, but What I like the most about them was that they are friendly. 

Friendly in a way that I never felt  I was out of place. Well, It's a good thing that I know some of them already, that includes wowee, jam, myrrh, may, cherry, and aileen. (who else)

Hilarious it was when Jam became my instant teacher for the first and second lessons.She looked so uhmmm...funny when she does her hand gesture thingy just to make me understand the things that she's talking about. I'm hoping that she'll be my teacher up to the last lesson of the discipleship. (me, a disciple? cool)

I like the way how 'Kuya Paks' (if I am right) share the word of God to the youth, that includes me since I'm still a teenager. Just want to clear things up since others may think I'm older than the way I look...sshhh..

I am hoping that I will become a GOOD man after I finish the discipleship.

Snack. That's the good thing about going there. ( Joke :].. )

Tigers Basketball back in action for UNIGAMES-Dumaguete


After a two- year disappearance in UNIGAMES ’08, ‘09

By Ryan E. Gantalao

Negros Oriental State University Tigers Basketball Team set back anew in the annual Philippine National Games (UNIGAMES) Basketball League last October 24-30, 2010 in Dumaguete City, after their two-year disappearance in the said National Collegiate Event.

It can be noted that th
e NORSU Tigers Basketball Team was excluded in the list of NORSU delegates for the
UNIGAMES in the past two years because the players weren’t competitive enough to play in the National Tournament.
The said 2-year exclusion was due to the Tiger’s poor performance in the 2008 Governor’s Cup (Champions League) where the Team did not even qualified in the semi-finals, while in 2009, the players were given another ‘cool down’ year because of attitude tribulations.

However, last October, despite another year of exclusion of the NORSU Basketball Team in the semi-finals for the Governor’s Cup this year, Physical and Athletic Director Robeleo Padernal gave the Tigers Team a ‘go signal’ to play for the UNIGAMES 2010.

Padernal said that sending the players to play for the national event will be a ‘big help’ for them to develop their basketball abilities and to develop their confidence when playing against other dominant universities in the country.

He added that this is also a ‘good way’ to further enhance their skills in the sport since practice sessions is far different from the real game.

He added that “this is a way of exposing the athletes in the real game” and to help them earn new techniques in playing the game from their opponents that came from different parts of the country.

Sought for his reaction about the in-game results, Padernal said that he is ‘glad’ about it because the Tigers gave a ‘good fight’ in every game.

In the bottom line, Padernal is expecting that the players learned a lot from their games against other dominant institutions across the country, and that the ‘exposure’ given to them will of big help in the future games.

Managing a Badminton try-out...

Yesterday was the try-out of our college's badminton team. Since I am no longer part of our university's varsity team, I can now play for the intramural games that will take place later this November.

I was the one who was assigned to manage the try-out and pick two players to play with me in the games because our coach is not there. He had an appointment and besides, he doesn't know the ins and outs of the game(hehe). I was happy that the college had enough budget to give us snacks and  payment for the rentals in the badminton courts.

To be fair, I also played along with the players. In other words, me myself went for try-out as well so that I can have some fun.

Honestly, it was my second time to play the sport again after University Games (UNIGAMES) Iloilo last year, my second time after I exit from the varsity team because of some insignificant reasons.

The other player who was also my friend can really play well because he was part of the Negros Oriental Delegation in CVIRAA before.

As a matter of fact, he can really go up against me. He was good. I was catching my breath just to finish the one-set-game before I lost all my stamina. We ended 14-16. I was almost beaten. by him.

Phone Call..

Okay. The fact is, I was waiting for a call all day long yesterday. No. That’s a lie. I waited for a call all night long last night until I realized it was 12:30 in the morning.

I mean. It is not really the what-they-so-called very important call. It’s just a call from someone..hmmm….hmmmm…a weird gal from the amazon jungle with a weird occidental-negros intonation…

Well, she said she’ll call me on Sunday. :) ..

Weird....PEOPLE from Amazon

Since I can't think of anything to write for this blog entry, I guess I just have to write something about some weird people around me. And yeah, saying that this one is called PEOPLE is not the right term. This one deserves a rare and unique name, ALIEN or AMAZONA would be appropriate.

Why is she weird? because it's just the way she is, and no matter how I try to find out that there' something good about her, there is none.

Well, I need to admit that she kinda has a cute??? voice (and a distinctive visayan intonation because she's from occidental negros) at some point when I called her, a few times. But saying that there's something good about her just won't pop out in my mind.

She is weird and complex minded. And saying that she is an AMAZONA from the jungle is just an understatement. She is more than that. She is rude and harsh. And yah, she is weird. WEIRD. The weirdest gal I've known so far.

However, her weirdness makes me want to look for her, literally. I want to hear her weird terms and intonations not so often. And I bet that doesn't mean anything because I am always alone in my room so I need someone to talk to, and someone to...hmmmm...CLOWN?? :) ..she's cute, ironically....

Wait, I guess at some point I'm being so rude to her in this post.

I should also include that there was a time that I realized that this amazona has a HEART. There was a time that I tried to call her but she did not answer the phone because it was in silent mode, according to her.

And suddenly, around 10 PM, I received a message from her saying that she's sorry and that she'll gonna call me if I have a smart number.

And I said "aw? unsai nakaon aning bayhana?"

Can't believe that she'll really do that. Well, I guess people from amazon, at the rarest point, has a heart.

Lack of regular instructors causes geology graduates’ poor performance in board exam—CHED

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Panel of Geologists found out that the absence of resident geology instructors in Negros Oriental State University (NORSU) is the major cause of graduates’ poor performance during the August 2010 Geology Board Examinations.

On the recent exam, only three out of 12 takers passed, giving NORSU an alarming 25 percent passing rate.

Thus, the CHED staff composed of Project Technical Staff Merlin N. Fabricante, CHED Panel for Geology Chairperson Dr. Rene Claveria, and Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) Board of Geology Chairperson Dr. Emmanuel Tamesis, on September 15, 2010, conducted a background check to crack the root cause of the undesirable board exam result.

“If the faculty members are part timers and the face to face approach between them [teacher and students] is usually once a month, that’s a big problem,” said Fabricante.
Aside from this, the CHED representatives also reviewed the course syllabus for geology and commented that the subjects under the curriculum should mainly focus on the course.
According to Fabricante, in other schools, the number of units in every semester would only reach 15 to 18 unlike in NORSU where students are given 23 to 24 units every semester. He added that geology is a ‘demanding course’, so students should not be given any other extra subjects for it will divide their time.
Fabricante suggested that it would be better to give the students a copy of the course syllabus so that it will serve as their guide for self-study sessions because of the fact that NORSU geology students lacks regular teachers.
While for Claveria, he commented that students should be given an option to choose between having an on-the-job training (OJT) or make a thesis which is equivalent to three units since they noticed that thesis writing is not included in the course syllabus.
The panel of geology from CHED believed that making thesis will give the students more reason to study harder aside from the things they are currently doing.
NORSU can’t afford licensed geology instructors—Taring  
Answering this deficiency on having qualified and regular instructors in Geology,
College of Arts and Sciences Dean Violeta Taring revealed that the university cannot afford licensed geologists to teach in NORSU because the school cannot afford their teaching fee.
“Licensed geologists would earn 50 to 60 thousand a month in mining companies, while NORSU can only offer 15 thousand,” she continued.
The dean opined that they are trying their best to suffice the needs of students regarding their education.
Taring said that students are having online teaching with their instructors. “They are given assignments and projects to work on online,” she added pointing on the willingness of students to learn despite the tribulations of the course.
For Physics and Geology Department Chair Eduardo Iso, education of students is not a problem because the latter are eager to learn because what is important is the students’ positive attitude to learn.  
He said that what happened to Geology graduates during the board exam was only normal like any other schools. He added that other prominent institutions even got zero percent passing rate.
He stressed that producing topnotchers on the past Geology Board Exams was a “good proof that students are learning in this institution.”
Moreover, Iso is optimistic that there will be improvements in the Geology Department later this year. He shared that new Physics and Geology laboratory rooms will be constructed in the 4th floor of the Science and Technology building.

Are you trying to burst my bubble?...

Sorry if I have made this post. I just want to confirm something.
Did I read it right? Are you messing up with me?

For God's sake, do you think you really have the guts to mess up with me?
You are somehow close to me, and I can't imagine you starting to mess up with me.

Please do not burst my bubble. I'm not good at this.

 But don't worry, if you want this then I'll be there with Class and Elegance.
Don't worry I'm used to friends-turning-demons scenarios.

 If you think you did a good job in shutting my mouth up, you are terribly wrong.

Mess up with me, then I'll make your life miserable.

Should I say that you earned your position because there is no other one to take it over?

Should I say that if we would compare our articles when you were still a writer, yours doesn't even look like a work of a senior?

Okay. I'll stop blurting.

I'm sorry if I'm wrong. But I guess I'm right.

Forgive me if I'm wrong. I'll erase this post if I am wrong.

Please DO NOT START. DO NOT START. I'm tired with SICK CLOSE-MINDED people.

You wouldn't mess up with me if you are INTELLIGENT.

Usapang Johnson's Baby Powder...

Paalala: hindi ibig sabihin naglalagay nang PULBO ang mga lalaki ay bakla na sila. Baka hindi mo alam, yang syota mo, kahit hindi naglalagay ng pulbo, ay mas bakla pa kung maglagay ng mga beauty products sa mukha kung wala ka.

Alam kong medyo nakakabighani ng interes ang isang lalaki na naglalagay ng Johnsons Baby Powder sa mukha tuwing alas dose ng hating araw dahil sa pawis niya sa katawan at mukha.

Pero tika muna, kung akala mo ay ako ang taong ito. Nagkakamali ka.

Dahil ang tinutukoy ko ay ang mga lalaking kasama ko dito sa opisina.

 Hindi sila bakla. Mas lalaki pa sila kisa sa boyfriend ng maganda mong kaibigan. At sila yung mga taong masasabi mong may talento talaga.

Noong una, akala ko ay isang malaking kabaklaan ang paglagay ng pulbo sa mukha ng mga kalalakihan. Pero nung tumagal ay natutunan ko na ang teknik na ito. Isa itong malaking teknik upang mapansin ka ng mga babae.

Sino ba namang babae ang magkakagusto sayo kung punong puno ng mantika ang pagmumukha mo na parang nanggaling ka sa piestahan ng lechon. Isipin mo nga?

Hindi mo ba naisip na baka, baka lang. Ang Jonhsons Baby Powder na ang tanging superhero ng iyong pagmumukha! na baka ito ang pagkakataon na mapansin ka nag crush mo sa school.

Pero teka, hindi ko sinabing pagkatapos mong magpulbo ay pwede kanang maglagay ng lipstik at blush on. Hindi ko sinabing maging bakla ka!

Yun lang. Dito na magtatapos ang usapang Jonhsons Baby Powder.

Mga bagay na pinaghihinayangan ko...

Sa mga araw na ako ay nabuhay sa mundong ibabaw ay napagtanto kong marami pala akong mga bagay na pinanghihinayangan.

Mga bagay na sana ay kinain ko pero nakalimutan ko kasi akala ko late na ako sa klase.

Sa mga araw na hindi ako na ligo kasi akala ko makakabuti yun sa katawan ko.

Sa pag akala kong ang hindi pagligo ay makakabuti sa katawan dahil mamumuo ang baluti na gawa sa lupa.

Na sana ay sinuntok ko nalang ang ???? ng tatay ko noong ako ay musmos pa para matakot siyang iwanan nanay ko.

Sa mga taong tinuring long kaibigan na nagpatulo sa akin ng luha, sumalangit nawa kayo.

Sa Jonhsons baby powder na nahulog sa imburnal nung isang linggo, gusto kong malaman mo na isinapuso ko ang pagbibigay mo sa kin ng fresh face araw araw.
Nakalimutan ko pala, hindi kita pag-aari. Naiwan kalang ng crush ko nong nag.pulbo siya sa Female CR.

Sa pag iwan ko sa larong badminton dahil gusto ko sanang bigyan ng oras ang ibang tao, eh di sana ay sobrang galing ko na ngayon at nakalaro ako ulit sa UNIGAMES.

Sa sinayang na panahon sa pag-aaral dahil sa maling akala.

Sa mga babaeng nagkagusto sa akin na binalewala ko lang. Pasensiya, hindi kayo nakaabot sa panlasa ko.
Sa mga babaeng binalewala ako. Hunghang kayo! hindi niyo alam ang salitang RARE and UNIQUE.

Sa mga taong nangbuwesit sa akin, masusunog din kayo sa impyerno.

Sa mga taong nagmahal sa akin, pasensiya pero wala kayong regalo sa pasko.

Sa mga taong gusto akong mawala, mauna muna kayo.

Sa mga taong nag-iisip na pangit ako, tingnan niyo muna pagmumukha niyo.

Sa mga taong nag-iisip na bobo ako sa englis, hindi pa kayo aabot sa kuko ng daliri ko kung magsusulatan tayo.

Sa mga nag akala na hindi ako marunong gumuhit, palakpakan pagkat TAMA kayo.

Sa mga crushes ko, maawa kayo at pansinin niyo ako.

Sa mga math teachers ko, hindi na ako takot sa inyo.
Calculus? panis kana sa akin ngayon.

Sa sira kong tootbrush, huwag kang mag-alala gagamitin parin kita pang tanggal ng dumi sa sapatos ko.

Sa mga multo na umaaligid sa akin, matakot kayo sa mukha ko.
Sa mga taong akala nila ay may gusto ako sa kanila, hoy! wala akong panahon sa mga tipo niyo. Wag kayong assuming.

Sa sapatos ko na converse na nasira sa loob lang ng dalwang buwan, walang hiya ka. Ang mahal mo pa naman.

Hari ng Negros, palapit na ako.

Sa mga nagsabing payat ako, humanda kayo pag lumaki katawan ko. Itatapon ko kayo sa labas ng bintana.

Sa mga taong hindi pa nakabasa ng Blog ko, pagkakataon niyo nato.

How to kill people in a blog post...

Why is it that many people are making LAWS and RULES just for their own gain?

I witnessed several scenarios in mankind involving this kind of parasitic behaviorI would like to KILL some INSENSITIVE people in this post.

It can be noted that a few months ago the Board has decided to not let the staff open their Face Book account for some very significant reasons.

First, so that the Staff can focus on their work.
Second, to detach themselves from distraction.
Third, to consume office hours sole-fully in good-work.
Fourth, to maintain Peace And Order in the office
Fifth, to develop team-work among other  co-staffers
Sixth, to publish weekly.

I promised to myself that I will never argue again with people who are not in level with my I.Q. because I think that would be too demeaning for a person of my stature, too ridiculous to argue with people who can't understand the words FAIRNESS and EQUALITY. If they'll argue, shutting their mouth up is easy just like the last time.

I am a Sole Noblesse so I need to handle situations with Class and Dignity.
I am not a coward. I just think that this post will resolve everything, no need to argue. I don't want to hear people who are arguing nonsense, just like this morning. Too annoying.

Here are my arguments:

The Board prohibits the opening of social networking sites because that would cause distraction to each staffer's work. But why is it that there are some people who kept on playing games during office hours?

Why are they too noisy while playing?
Are they not distracting the others?

Why are they opening Youtube, and sing stupid songs while others are working?

Is it not a violation to make CRAZY NOISE inside the office?

Is it right to muck or to speak obscene words here in the office?

I'm sorry but I can't remember my teacher telling me that I can say "Peste", "yawa", or "fuck you" inside the classroom.

That is, if you guys passed GMRC.

Why are they not respecting the Former EIC Junrell Calunod?
Junrell wants to finish his tasks before he goes abroad yet other people kept on BULLSHITTING him.

I feel really bad for him. I respect him alot yet other people would just ignore him, not thinking about all the things he had done for this institution.

Is it right to say that  "I am doing my weekly task so I am allowed to play"?

Does that mean that I can play as many games as I want and LAUGH out LOUD like a jerk because I am doing my weekly tasks as well? Come on. I've been active from the start of this school year yet my HEAD remained humble, unlike others whose heads grew larger than ever.

Does that mean that because they hold position here they can do everything they want? for their own gain?

Is it right to give a strike to someone who is just seeking for FAIRNESS?

I can't remember we had an agreement that a strike will be given to those who will open FB.

These are my arguments. I do not want to hear people arguing here in the office because of the same reasons. Resolve this immediately.

Matalino ang gumawa sa akin...

Kung sino man ang mga tao na gumawa sa akin, ako ay nagagalak na tinama talaga nila ang petsa ng aking kapanganakan pagkatapos ng araw ng mga Santo.

Hindi ko alam kong ikatutuwa ko ba ito o hindi. Pero sa ngayon, ito lang ang masasabi ko. Hindi ako natutuwa pagkat wala akong kasama bukas sa kaarawan ko, November 2. Tatanda na naman ako. Pero hindi ako masyadong nag-aalala sa kakisigan ko dahil alam kong ito ay mananatili hanggang sa ako ay maging 40 years old.

Sa ngayon may mga tao talagang pinagkakamalan akong 20-25 years old. Por Bida! di ba ninyo alam ang kaibahan ng batang makisig at bata na bata pa pero matanda na ang pagmumukha? kung pwede ay pakiayos ng mata nyo, o kung hindi naman ay bumili na kayo ng salamin.

Noong isang gabi ay para akong gago na palakad lakad sa lansangan pagkat wala ako sa tama kung pag-iisip. Hindi ko sinasabing naloloko na ako pero sa tingin ko ay medyo nagdadalamhati ako sa kung ano anong mga bagay.

Sa mga bagay na gusto ko sana ay nandito pero wala.

Mga taong mahal ko pero malayo.

Sa nag-iisang ina na minahal ako ng buong-buo.

Sa mga pagkakataon na sana ay inalagaan ko ng maayos.

Sa mga pagkaing hindi ko kinain dahil nabusog na ako, sayang.

Sa mga sinayang na pagkakataon dahil sa walang kwentang pag-ibig.

Sa walang kwentang pag-ibig na naging dakila sa lahat.

Sa Johnson powder na nahulog sa imburnal at hindi ko na nakuha.
Sa tuyo at bagoong na ilang beses ko nang gustong planong kainin.

Sa mga taong binigyan ko ng rason upang ako ay iwanan.

Sa mga panahon na ako ay mag-isa at walang magawa.

Sa mga panahon na sana ay may ginawa ako pero wala akong lakas ng loob.

Sa mga panahon na may lakas ng loob akong lumaban pero hindi ko ginawa dahil alam kong hindi iyun ang tama.

Sa mga bagay na sana ay ipinaglaban ko pa pero dapat nang bigyang laya.

Sa mga araw na masaya pagkat may kasama.

Sa mga gabi na may nakakabinging katahimikan dahil nag-iisa.

Sa mga taong minsan ay mahalaga sa akin pero itinakwil ko dahil sa mga pangyayaring hindi ko lubos akalaing mangyayari.

Sa mga taong nagbago, at sa mga taong nanatiling matapat sa akin.

Sa mga pagkakataon na gusto kong sumali sa isang simbahan ng mga kaibigan ko. Gusto kong magsimba hindi upang ako ay maging Santo, hindi upang maging banal at walang kasalanan. Dahil kung mangyayari yun, hindi na ako yun.
Gusto ko lang maging parti ng isang pamilya na may kinalaman sa lumalang sa akin.
