loob

Hindi natin marahil napapansin ang maliit na salitang LOOB ay napapaloob sa napakaraming konteksto sa ating wika, kultura at damdamin bilang mga Filipino. Ang salitang LOOB ay inside kapag translated sa salitang Ingles. Sa kulturang Filipino, ang loob ay relational will o ang kanyang damdaming panloob para sa kanyang kapwa at sa iba’t ibang mga pangyayari sa kanya at kanyang…Read More »

Enero pa lang, puno na ng iba’t-ibang kaganapan ang bansang Pilipinas: mula sa masaya at tunay na nakaka-bless na pagdating ng Santo Papa, ang pagkakaroon ng pag-asa ngunit nauwi sa pagkabigo na makamit ang korona mula sa Miss Universe at sa galit na nararamdaman sa pagkamatay ng 44 na Special Action Force men sa Maguindanao. Sa mga pangyayaring ito, maraming…Read More »

This is a timely assignment for me this September. You see, I turn 51 in just a few winks this month. This is like being asked, just like the movie, “13 going 30,” would you like to be 15 instead of 51? Everyday we are bombarded by media to look young through billboards, tv and print ads, magazines and newspapers.…Read More »

It was in the 80’s when I first heard the lingo of the decade a.k.a. Taglish. It was the in thing for the kolehiyalas back then where Tagalog and English were married in ordinary conversations. But for me it was more of a form of adultery. “Let’ s make tusok-tusok the fishballs.” “Yuck! You’re so kadiri!” “You make tawag na…Read More »

Handshake, by Aidan Jones

If a reasonable, pleasantly-mannered Filipino is looking for a job, then chances are, the train of events will go like this: 1) He’ll first try and look for a job himself, by going to all the job openings and interviews he can go to. Chances are, in our current economic realities, there will be many job openings, but few, if…Read More »

Let’s say you’re taking a walk in the mall, and you see a big group of teenagers whom you don’t like. It may be because of the way they dress, the way they act, or, perhaps, you’ve heard the way they talk. You think to yourself, “its so baduy.” Chances are, the term you will think of when seeing them…Read More »

Pahayag ng video seminar sa Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) na ang pagmamaneho ay nakapagbibigay ng matinding kasiyahan. Sa pangkalahatan ay makatwiran sila, sapagkat maging si President Aquino ay ito ang libangan, at ipagpapalagay nating pantanggal stress. Isa pa, ang kalalakihan, maging ang mga binansagan ang sarili nilang domesticated o “housebands” ay nagkakaroon ng kaunting katahimikan, at karugtong…Read More »

sungit pangit

Maraming paraan makikilala ang kasungitan, este, ugali ng isang tao. Isa na rito ay pag nakasama mo siya sa biyahe, lalo na kung bahagi kayo ng isang malaking group. Pag may tension kasi, lumalabas ang tunay na kulay: yong nagiging blue dahil sa di masabi ang gustong sabihin, nababanyo na pala; yong nagiging green dahil gusto yong pinakamasarap na parte…Read More »

Once, while my friends and I were having a round of drinks, someone asked the question: “What do Pinoys really think of Self-reliant Pinays?” Another of my friends just laughed, and said: “All a smart girl needs is the right smart man to put her in her place!”
