ACTIVE ONLINE Mary Antonette Galon

Have you ever been a victim of irrevocable accusations and unreasonable issues? Has anyone acted differently against you? Are there any cases of betrayal, infidelity and treachery? Most of us may have already experienced these brought by social media, public talks and social activities people engaged in. Because of this, many are threatened to lose the good reputation they try to preserve, and worst lose themselves due to allegations getting out of hand. In today’s generation, people easily judge others blindly. Despite their lack of sound bases, they easily criticize as if they know everything, and they contemplate on every detail as if they are not hurting people. With more or more millennial turning their attention and dependence on social networking sites and other internet platforms in airing their sentiments, thoughts and opinions on diverse discussions and social issues. Presently, an influx of school’s secret files is a trending means of engaging students into dialogues and interactions anonymously. This is perhaps one of the many reasons why the students finds themselves free in expressing what they want to say against someone disregarding its repercussions to the victim. People view social media and other social networking sites as a form of free interactions amongst each other and as means of entertainment to break the routines of daily life, but beyond these ideal rationales for dependence on them are cases of cyberbullying and abuse to freedom of speech and irresponsible use of the world wideweb. More importantly, people become monsters of themselves playing on others physically, mentally and emotionally. It is a Facebook page that makes students unaware of

Acquaintance Party 2018 Mary Antonette Galon

One of the most anticipated events of the year is the Acquaintance Party. This is the night when students partake in knowing their peers in the College of Development Education. It is this time of the year when students can party all night, enjoy

their actions. They consider it as an open website designed for showing what they have, saying what they want and dictating how life goes on. Students become dependent and spending almost every waking hour of their lives online. Chatting and posting ads enables the public to know their whereabouts. Every swipe on someone’s facebook wall, every “hearts” given in instagram posts to simple tweets in your twitter shoutouts subjects you to intruding their lives and vice versa. You open your entire life publicly for everyone to see, to admire, or to envy. Facebook as well other social media by its very essense is not evil, but how it is used and on what end is what dictates its truest nature. What is prohibited is the part of doing something that causes bad effects to others. Recent news was published dealing with suicide cases, insecurity, frustration, and depression due to social media. Those misinterpretations, condemning and social frauds brought us pressure of what will be the future of this generation. Students are now neglecting the freedom of living peacefully. Nowadays, students are incapable of performing well and attaining high grades because schooling has been removed to basic priority. They are no longer as active as before. They’ve mastered how to live virtually, and how to speak up online. The modernization and technologically-advanced society brought us to these changes. Freedom takes the most important part in living one’s own, yet it could be easily damaged and stolen by those irresponsible individual. Be mindful of our own business and stop throwing false accusations and rumors. The pervasiveness of social media is inevitable; what we must do is to manage our time and apply it in an appropriate way so everyone can be benefited. Students are better off as virtual literate, but they are more effective when properly educated. Education gives wisdom that is not always provided by social media alone. Be active offline, for education is first in line. Connect with books, chat with friends, have fun with school activities and engage in meaning interactions. Activate the accounts in school and partially close the door of networks and websites. It regulates our becoming TOO ACTIVE ONLINE.

other’s company, and sing and dance to the beat of the jockey’s playlist until midnight. It is the time to bond with classmates, schoolmates, peers, alumni, faculty and staff of CDE. The College of Development Education held its annual Acquaintance Party last August 17 at CBSUA Atrium which started at 7:00 pm. Freshmen students wore their best green attires. The upperclass students

came wearing their best dresses and semi-formal get-ups. What better way to leave more memories for the dearest graduating class of 2018 before their practice teaching and graduation but a night to relax and have fun despite the busy schedules and school requirements they are completing presently. Let’s hit the dance floor together, and chill out!


Mandatory Drug Test: An Issue of Security and Preparation Zharina Monedero

Last May 30, 2016 when Duterte was hailed as the president of the Philippines, he made a final announcement of his fight against illegal drugs. It has been long months of chasing the tail of drug lords and drug pusher both commoners and public officials. And the long chase of Government after Drugs is indeed here, within the premises of the school. There were news that a mandatory drug test is to be conducted in schools in primary, secondary and tertiary in the Philippines. These program is implemented by PDEA (Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency) as compliance to the Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 which states that there must be an annual surprise drug testing in every school in the Philippines. This gives proper authorities their warrant to subject not only include students but teachers as well to random drug tests. Duterte is in the mid of his fight against drug which threatens millions of parents who worries about the security of their children. This is due to the many unsolved and unjust killings which surprisingly and sadly include death tolls of young students and children allegedly related to drugs. This, therefore, raises global attention and sympathies from many organizations

such as UNICEF and UN who are prime movers for securing the rights and welfare of the youth. The questions have been raised and many clamor for answers: Should Mandatory drug testing something to be feared by people, or is it a beneficial move of the government? What will happen to those who tested positive? What are the measures that the school and the authority will do in response to those who tested positive? What fate awaits them after tests are done? A student of College of Development Education was asked about her standing on the rumoured Drug testing. She said, “Okay lang, para maging aware ang college natin kung may mga drug-related bang estudyante�. For her it is as good news as free tuition and what she said is much appreciated by non-drug users but for those who already embraced drugs it is a threat. Many people are confident that they will pass the test that fact does not guarantee immunity to school policy and program changes brought by a few cases of student drug-users. There will always be rooms for possibilities or what-ifs. For those who fail, their lives are endangered as vigilantes will come after them for purge. Will their security be assured by PDEA knowing that killers do not differentiate ages. What will happen if a student is found positive in drugs? According to CBSUA handbook (2016), “a person apprehended or arrested, who is found to be positive for use of any dangerous drugs, after a confirmatory test,


shall be imposed a penalty of a minimum of 6 months rehabilitation in a government center for the first offense, subject to the provisions of article VIII of this act. If apprehended using any dangerous drug for the second time , he/she shall suffer penalty of imprisonment ranging from 6 years and one day to 12 years and a fine ranging from 50,000 to 200,000…” Another issue is prompted in this case, “Are rehabilitation programs and providers of the government and non-profit organizations ready to accommodate the influx of students who tested positive after the policy is implemented? There is not enough rehabilitation spaces allotted for newly apprehended drug users and accommodating all may not necessarily be possible considering the conditions that they have now. Government knows the risk that if these found drug users cannot undergo rehabilitation the Drug Test is a failure and their aims to betterment of youth is a failure too; worse of all, this plan may only expose these students to their killers waiting for their next prey.

GAD conducts Symposium on Anti-Sexual Harassment in support to R.A. 7877 and other related laws Marchie B. Albis

Security and Rehabilitation are the two concerns at risk due to Mandatory Drug Testing. Assurance and careful preparations are what needed. Before the full realization of the tests, keeping the students is the next thing to be considered, then preparations for the rehabilitations come next. As expected if this program is successfully conducted then increase in numbers of drug users is expected and that Rehabilitation and pending resolution must be ready to accommodate such numbers. Everyone shares this burden, not just the government nor the users, or their family. We are responsible for safeguarding welfare of our brothers and sisters. Ultimately, a famous adage says, “prevention is better than a pound of cure.” So, how should one look at this situation now? Is the Mandatory Drug Testing the best prevention, or a cure for illegal drugs pestering schools and universities in the country?

the present law on Sexual Harassment or Republic Act no. 7875,"an act declaring Sexual Harassment" and other existing laws or policies related into this law.” It also covered the Republic Act 1970 or the Magna Carta for Women (MCW) or the document constituting a fundamental guarantee of rights and privileges of women.

The Symposium on Anti-Sexual Harassment and other related laws spearheaded by the Gender and Development (GAD) of Central Bicol State University of Agriculture-main campus was held last July 27, 2018, 1:00 pm- 5:30 pm at Alvaro Rabina Hall. Dr. Ramon Arimado, Vice President of Admin. and Finance gave his concise critical account or review about the said symposium. Mr. Sean Paulo Dumalasa, Attorney III served as guest speaker during the event and shared essential topics and concerns to the selected students who participated in the said event. His topic was about the "Anti-Sexual Harassment Act or Republic Act no. 7877 and

This symposium aimed to raise students’ awareness especially pertinent to Sexual Harassment. It also informed when harassment can happen and how to combat those people commit this crime. Attorney Dumalasa comprehensively discussed that Sexual Ha-

rassment is an act or a series of acts involving any unwelcomed sexual advance, demands, requests or otherwise requires any sexual form. It is divided into three different reasons. These are the authority, influence and moral ascendancy. Sexual Harassment can happen to anyone and anyone can be possible offenders especially to those who has an authority, influence and moral ascendancy over another. He also added that based on R.A. 7877, " any person who directs or induces another to commit any act of sexual harassment as herein defined.” Moreover, he talked about the forms of sexual harassment, illustrative forms of sexual harassment, penalties and prescriptions. Through the symposium, students became cognizant. Therefore, abiding these laws are essential to ensure security. The event was ended at exactly 5:00 P.M.


SWOT Analysis Workshop for Inclusive Education Mary Antonette Galon

To promote Special and Inclusive Education was the aim of the SWOT Analysis Workshop held last August 1, 2018 at CDE-Reading Center, CBSUA-Main Campus. Ms. Cherry Love Montales of College of Development Education spearheaded this seminar workshop to have a valuable discussion about the present issues of education inclusion to students with special needs. 35 students from English, Filipino and Physical Science major were the selected participants who were in one way contributed their insights and ideas through a two-word writing activity about the strengths and weaknesses of the Special and Inclusive Education. Majority of the participants said that, “love and acceptance” is highly needed to create betterment in the community and to overpower the issues of discrimination and bullying of children with special needs. The participants also stated that the opportunity to have a better life and better future would have a great impact to the children and also to their parents. As the number of children with special needs grow higher, the participants were challenged to think for the best treatment they could offer to at least lessen the possibility of increasing its total number.

They come up with the idea that it is a good point to have an orientation seminar and trainings to both teachers and parents. This is for the implementation and awareness of the said matter. Also, the participants suggested that we should have good facilities, a well-ventilated classroom and an eco-friendly environment for the children to feel free and adapt to their surroundings. The presence of facilitators and of the parents is highly needed to come up with an accomplishment that is well done and well achieved. Specifically, the purpose of Special and Inclusive Education is to unlock the cabinet and expose children with special needs in the community where they belong. That was what Dr. Emelita O. Menes, the speaker of the event often said during and after her discussion of the topic. She highlighted the term “cabinet” describing how one can make children with special needs being part of the community, to be an effective citizen, to elevate solidarity and to have a harmonious relationship with others. The SWOT Analysis Workshop ended successfully. The active participation of the participants directed to a good impact to both teachers and students involved in the activity.

NEW ISO QUALITY POLICY IN PLACE The Central Bicol State University of Agriculture, in its pursuit to providing quality services and offerings to education, has cascaded the New Quality Policy that states the university's approach to quality assurance and continuous improvement. Dr. Ana MiraĂąa discussed the new quality policy to student body during its first Student's Assembly last July 25 at the CDE Quadrangle. The said document was also presented during the Strategic Planning of the CDE Faculty and Staff for the third quarter of the Academic year held last July 30 at the College Reading Center. The Quality Policy states CBSUA's commitment to maintaining and improving educational quality, desired outcomes of the quality framework, the community's responsibility for ensuring the quality, and strategic plan and objectives to be set by the university as well as promotion of university policies, procedures and guidelines, manuals and forms. More importantly, the dean emphasizes the value of understanding and applying these standards, rules and policies to demonstrate responsibility and accountability.

PAGSUNGKO KI INA Ina visits CDE Marchie Albis As the usual practice, Ina is annually visiting different colleges in CBSUA - Main Campus. Professor Christopher Dacer has headed the conduct with some selected CDE students for her visit. In the afternoon of August 8, Ina visited the College of Development Education (CDE). At around 1:30 PM, a vigil devoted to Ina was held. At 3:00 PM, another liturgical activity was also devoted to Ina. Ample time was also given for students to show their veneration to the image of Ina and to pray for their own intentions. Ina was then brought at the CBSUA chapel for the celebration of the mass that was attended by the whole community.

Benchmarking in Education Mary Antonette Galon

To teach is to learn; to measure is to conduct a process, and to set standard is to achieve high regards in a highly constituted manner. Recently, the College of Development of Education Administrators and Faculty representatives conducted a benchmarking with partner institutions namely Philippine Normal University and Miriam College last June 12-16 which paved way to adaption of “Maker’s Space” in the course syllabi as presented by Mr. Jeff Zulueta of Miriam College. In addition, the said activity reiterated the importance of conducting strategic planning prior to the opening of classes to set the objectives and goals of the department that need to be accomplished in the course of the school year.

was also cpnducted through Dr. Valerie B. Belmonte and Dr. Joan Arcilla, University physician and dentist respectively.

of Scholarship Unit, giving some important information with regard to the scholarship. His presentation ended after the open forum.

One of the highlight of the program was held in the afternoon wherein the participants engaged into an activity entitled "Group Dynamics on Getting to know myself and others" which aimed to develop their social aspects and to have them promote leadership and cooperation during the different school affairs. The activity was done through the immeasurable effort exuded by University Supreme Student Council officers. In the mid part of the afternoon session, Dr. Francia Asuncion D. Nunez, Prefect of Discipline, presented the school policies for the freshmen and transferees to be guided. Open forum was also observed and the entire activity ended at 5:00 PM.

On the 18th day of June, CDE scheduled its Strategic Planning and Quarterly meeting which discussed the recent trends in Education, echo seminars of faculty, as well as the finalizations of course syllabi and evaluation of specific targets of the department from the last period to the next. “Benchmarking” is now a word that enters the world of education. It is like a software that touches the users to do more and live more with its order. It is more than an instrument that measures a particular number or quantity, and it is somehow an indicator used to discover equity and excellence. Benchmarking in education happens when measurable standards for learning are set to show the practice of performance, to understand and develop the process and to show improvement being achieved in a specific duration of time. Specifically, this is being applied in educational context to

create a tangible model of excellence and achievement. It becomes a very useful way to push boundaries, to innovate things, to further the public goods, to elevate what is poorest to its greatest heights, and to make disadvantaged students reach the most achievement they all deserved. Its main purpose is for both institutions engaged in benchmarking exchange best practices and programs to better the organizational systems, curriculum and programs. Teachers always set standard to help students master the concept of real education. This includes the target, the strategies to attain the target, the materials and sources to implement the strategies and the participation of the students to see the improvement in their performance. This is also to discover what’s best to be done, what’s best to be changed and what’s best to be improved. Benchmarking in education is not to have a comparison or to identify

failures and weaknesses among students and schools which have a higher or lower performance in some basic levels. Benchmarking is to inculcate that education should have a high focus in giving standard not to judge a course but to learn who we are, to know what we do and to ascertain our stand. Basically, it is to improve public education to serve students with equal treatment. To raise the standard for all, to give equal education and to have a worthy quest to the students are primarily what benchmarking wants to contribute in education system. What one can achieve is a manifestation of how benchmarking functions to make it factual and tangible. What one can reach is the totality of how benchmarking helps the institution to create a system that is open to all.

The College of Development Education conducted its first capability Enhancement on Instruction for 5th Army Training Group-Trainers last September 5-6, 2018 at the Camp Francisco V. Canuto, Sagurong, Pili Camarines Sur. It is a partnership established by the CDE faculty and student volunteers, and the 5th ATG which made this endeavor possible.

skills especially on the use of teaching strategies and principles and their oral communication skills as trainers for the 5th ATG. These two areas for concentration were presented by Mr. Francis Bondilles and Ms. Karen Mae Barce who served as resource persons respectively. The activity ended with their presentation of lesson plans and a demo-teaching of a selected participant employing their learning.

Filipino: Wika ng Saliksik Buwan ng Wika 2018

Paolo T. Alferez BSE4E2 Isang disiplinang maituturing ang pag-aaral ng wika sa loob ng lipunan at ito’y kabilang sa mga bagay na dapat pinagtutuunan ng pansin lalong-lalo na sa pananaliksik, nang sa ganoon ay maging mas malinaw nating mailarawan ang mga kalagayan at katayuan nito para sa ating ikagagaling bilang mga pantas at tagapagtaguyod ng ating wika. Sa patuloy na pag-inog ng panahon at sa patuloy na pagdaan ng bawat pagkakataon tayo ba ay sumasabay o sumasablay sa mga pagbabagong nangyayari sa ating lipunan. Marahil ang ilan sa atin ay nakakalimutan na ang ating kultura at wikang kinagisnan maging sa ating mga kilos, gawi, pag-uugali at lalong-lalo na sa paggamit ng ating sariling wika na tila ba’y nagkakaroon na nang pag-unlad at mga pagbabago. Maaring ang kinagisnan natin noon ay ibang-iba na at malayo na ang narating sa kasalukuyan at patuloy pa na yumayabong at pinayayabong sa pagdaan at paglipas ng mga panahon. Ngayong taon ay ipinagdiriwang natin ang Buwan ng Wikang Filipino na atin namang tradisyon o kinaugalian ng ginagawa upang bigyang pagpupugay at pagpapahalaga ang ating sariling wika. Sa pamamagitan ng wika nagkakaroon tayo ng pagkakabuklod-buklod at

!

pagkakaisa saan mang dako tayo bansa. Wika rin ang nagsisilbing kaluluwa nating mga Filipino at sinasabing noon pa man ay kaakibat at kasakasama na natin ito sa ating pang araw-araw na pamumuhay. Ang hangin ay nagagamit natin sa paghinga, Maihahalintulad natin ang wika sa hangin na kung wala ang wika tayo ay hindi mabubuhay at walang pag-unlad na nagaganap sa ating bansa. Malaking katuparan sa ating mga Filipino ang pagdiriwang ng ating Wikang Pambansa lalong-lalo na ang tema ng ating buwan ng wika ngayon ay ay nakatuon sa Filipino: Wika ng Saliksik na akmang-akma sa hinihingi ng panahon-panahon ng paghahanap/ pananaliksik. Ang wika ng saliksik ay naglalayon na mapayaman ang ating kaisipan, bilang mananaliksik kinakailangang walang humpay tayo sa pagbabasa, pag-iisip, pagsusuri at paglalahad o paglalapat ng interpretasyon sa ating ginagawang pananaliksik upang mapalawak ang ating karanasan, malinang ang ating tiwala sa sarili upang lubos na maisakatuparan natin ng wasto ang ating ginagawang pag-aaral. Layon din nito na mapalawak ang ating kaalaman upang mahubog ng lubos ang ating kamalayan sa larangan ng pananaliksik at matugunan ang ating mga pangangailangan upang makahanap ng solusyon sa

mga problemang kinakaharap ng ating lipunan. Ayon kay dating Pangulong Manuel L. Quezon, “maaring mangailangan ng matagal na panahon… ngunit matutupad na magkaroon ng pambansang wikang batay sa isa sa mga umiiral na katutubong dyalekto…” Napakagandang sariwain at isapuso ang ating wika at mapanatiling buhay ito sa ating kaluluwa sapagkat nakapagbibigay ito ng napakalaking tulong sa atin lalong-lalo na sa mga mag-aaral sa pamamagitan ng pakikipagkomunikasyon at paggawa ng ating sariling pananaliksik. Lagi lamang nating tatandaan na wika ang salamin ng ating pagkatao, tayo bilang praktisyuner ng wika ay kinakailangang mas lalo pa nating buhayin at ipagmalaki sa mundo na ang Wikang Filipino: Wika ng Saliksik ay wika ng pagbabago sa anumang larangan.

Pilots of language: Diving in profile of English Major Zharina Joy N. Monedero

Knowledge of language is the key to wisdom. It sets the corridor to numerous ideas behind critical minds and serves as the key to open the doors for explanation of each ideas. Philosophers thought, mathematician’s formula, scientists’ concept and any concept about the truth and secret of life, will never be understood and will never last until today without language. It is through language where they are able to gain form and art in style. This is where they obtained their true meaning. This makes English indispensable in our lives. Behind this subject are individuals marked with education of this key. They believe that their purpose is not just about the employment of English but to explore the secrets that lies beyond English. They believe that everything is relies in it. For example, job application with just a single hint of error will directly go to bin. Through English they see opportunities and success as one step away. They are scholars who are known for their valor to strive for best. Scholars who continually give pride to the college of Development Education. Language majors are known as the root of numerous academic awardees such as Bryan Cariaga and Jirah Bergantin. They are persons of magnificent look and words. Affable and dedicated. They are the ones who see passion in English. English majors are the people whose mission is the continual development of Language and Literature. They are known as perfectionist. They want everything as perfect as English. They do not want to

see flaws, that is why they tend to comment and make correction to every post, statements, and composition which ought to be wrong. Somebody might have coined this trait of them as negative. But for English majors it is where they served their purpose. Because as English major, they believe that anything wrong must not be leave as it is until the end. Make it right from the beginning and leave it right until the end. They may not perfect individual but at least they strive to be perfect in words. It is also undeniable that majority of English major are academic awardees and have earned honor during their high school. No doubt that many are expecting in this major as active, bookworm, and do the same achievement just like from before. English major prefer mind works than sports. This does not claim that they are not good in sports they are just shy in showing what they have got. Beside these tough sides of English majors lying a humorous belief about the boys taking English major. If not straight, they are gays, and those remaining straight are more delicate than girls. They are the pilot of language and literature. They ought to render their service to introduce the beauty and secrets of global language throughout the world. Because for them English is the way to learn new language and history. And learning new language and history is discovering the chance to be a different person you want. If you want to discover your different persona within you and held the key to wisdom, be a part of Guild of English Major


Upsurge Satellite Living in inquisition is living the world of PHYSICS.

What we see around, what we think of things, what we do and what we speak are in relation with the study of physics. How we ask fundamental questions and how we attempt to answer them are a part of how we apply science in everyday life. “PhySci majors� as what we called to all students taking Physical Science course are physicists with clear purpose and outstanding scholastic records aligned in other majorship offered in College of Development Education. They are the researchers and experiment specialists, masters of integrating matters to different life-involving substances, experts in responding to technological and theoretical concepts and above all, they are future teachers selected to face numerous inquiries dealing with facts applied in every sphere of human activity. Physics is crucial in understanding the world around us, the world inside us, and the world beyond us. It is the most basic and fundamental science. Through physics we are capable of discovering what everything means. From the very small substance to the most massive material, we usually find great things from them which is developed through researches and experiments. It encompasses the study of the universe from the largest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particles. Physics challenges our imaginations with concepts of discoveries that lead to technologies which change our lives. In full amount, life is considered as taking and

allowing what a physics can provide. In many aspects, everyday activities are an application of science. It is with great challenge to be a PhySci majors. You can never break them down as they have the unusual power of controlling things as what they have learned in their field. Exposed in many actual activities, they developed themselves in scientific problem solving and they are now advanced in using computer and programming. In actual interview and observation, it is evident that PhySci majors are on the average speed towards their goals. They have distinct qualities that labeled them in high form of energy. They are enthusiasts in doing their works harmoniously with added challenges. What matter most is their readiness in all tests that they encountered and might encounter along their way of probing, and what is even more important is the learning and pleasure that they have gained all throughout the process. Learning is always precedence and with every step we need to consider our purpose. Moving around virtuous education and discovery field, PhySci majors are on their journey to victory. They are the existing SATELLITES to broadcast physical science and its application to their future student. -antonette

O! binibini na aking iniibig Hulog ka mula sa langit Ikaw ang laging laman nitong aking isip Maging sa aking pagtulog at panaginip

Ang bawat isa’y may saloobin Na nais ipabatid sa atin Respeto sa kapwa’y ating bigyang pansin Karapatang pantao’y laging isipin

Babae:

Masaya ako nang malaman ko Na ako ang dahilan ng kasiyahan mo Ngunit hindi ko lubusang mapagtanto Kung ano nga ba ang tunay kong nararamdaman para saiyo?

Bago manghusga ng kapwa’y tingnan muna ang sarili Dahil wala itong maidudulot na mabuti Masasamang salita ay iyong iwaksi Nang sa huli ay hindi ka magsisi

Lalaki:

Ang nais ko lamang ay iyong maramdaman Ang tunay at tapat kong pagmamahal Makita ko lamang ang iyong kasiyahan Ay sapat na sa akin upang ika’y ipaglaban

Panlabas na kaanyuan ay hindi sukatan Upang masabi na ika’y may angking kagandahan Dahil ang puso at ugali ang tanging basihan Nang isang taong tapat at may pagmamahal.

Babae:

Ako’y humahanga sa iyong katapatan Marami mang pagsubok ang iyong pinagdaanan Seryoso ka pa rin sa iyong panliligaw Tunay at tapat mo pa rin akong pinaglilingkuran

Arendaing Iyong nasilayan at napagmasdan Ang unang hakbang ko sa hagdan Na para bang ika’y kinakabahan Na ako’y madapa at masugatan Kahit ikaw ay puyat man Tinitiis mo pa rin ang aking kakulitan Nagpapahabol sayo kahit buktot na ang balakang Ngunit sa kabila nito ay masaya mo pa rin akong inaalalayan Upang iyong masigurado ang aking kaligtasan Hatid sundo mo ako sa eskwelahan Kahit mabigat ang bag na aking pinapasan Dadalhin mo pa rin ito pauwi sa ating tahanan Habang tayo’y nasa duyan Ako’y iyong inaawitan Awit na simbolo ng kaligayahan Mula sa aking lola na tunay kong minamahal Kaya’t hanggang sa kasalukuyan Patuloy kong sinasariwa ang ating pinagsamahan Kahit ikaw ay tuluyan nang nagpaalam Ikaw, aking lola, ay mananatili pa rin sa aking puso’t isipan

Lalaki: Babae:

Hayaan mo sana ako sinta, na ika’y paligayahin Sa munting kanta na aking aawitin Palaring dinggin mo ng puso’t damdamin Ang simbolo ng tunay kong pag-ibig Malugod kong tatanggapin Ang awit na iniaalay mo sa akin Hangad mo na ako’y pasayahin Sa munting tinig mo na nakaaaliw

Lalaki:

Gagawin ko ang lahat Pagmamahal ko lamang ay maging sapat Boses ko man ay mamalat Ako’y maglilingkod pa rin sayo ng tapat

Babae:

Ang iyong tiyaga ang nagpatunay Na ako ay tunay mong minamahal Marapat lamang na aking suklian Ang mainit at wagas mong pagmamahal...

KUMINTANG Marjorie B. Ombao

Mga mamamayan ay natatakot Mga mamamayan ay namamatay Mga mamamayan ay nakikipagsapalaran Para buhay at pamilya’y maligtas Sa mga toristang nagsasakop At angkinin ang lupain. Mga walang awa at puso Hanapbuhay, Pamilya at Tirahan Winawasak ng kalaban Puno ng paghihinagpis at pighati Sa mga pasakit at hirap Bakit kapwa tao natin, kalaban?


HUWARANG GURO Ni GLENDA PAJARILLO-AYALA

Ang Pagtuturo o pagiging isang Guro ang pinakamataas sa lahat ng mga propesyon. Ika nga sa Ingles “Teaching is a Noblest of all Profession”. Ito ay nagbibigay inspirasyon upang pagbutihin at mahalin ang bokasyon, misyon at propesyon na ating pinili at walang iba kundi ang pagiging isang “Huwarang Guro”. Isang maaliwalas at maluwalhating umaga sainyong lahat. Alam kung hindi magiging madali ang tatahakin o lalakbayin bago maging isang ganap na guro. Pero kakayanin natin ito, sapagkat ito talaga ang gusto natin makamit. Hayaan ninyo akong ibahagi sainyo ang kuwentong pumukaw sa aking isip at damdamin sapagkat ito ay nagbibigay-aral, gabay at inspirasyon sa lahat ng mga guro. Ito ay tungkol sa isang propesor na matiyagang nagtuturo sa kanyang mga mag-aaral. Binigyan niya ng motibasyon at hinikayat niyang ipagpatuloy ng kanyang mga estudyante ang pag-aaral, sapagkat ito ang magsisilbing susi sa kanilang pangarap at tagumpay. Inihalintulad ng propesor ang pagtuturo at pag-aaral sa isang boat hire, na kung saan ito ang maghahatid patungo sa landas ng kanilang tagumpay. abin g propesor ang Guro at Doktor ay magkapareho, sapagkat pareho silang nabibigay ng impormasyon at kaalaman sa ibang tao at maging sa mga mag-aaral. Ito ang kwentong sobrang umantig sa aking puso. Bakit ko nga ba ibinahagi ang kwentong ito sainyo? Para malaman ninyo na ang guro ay hindi lang nagbibigay ng kaalaman at inspirasyon bagkus sila rin ang humihila pataas at nagbibigay inspirasyon lalong-lalo na sa mga mag-aaral na nawawalan ng pag-asa. Ang guro ang tanging gumagabay sa kanilang mga mag-aaral tungo sa kabutihan para sa inaasam nilang tagumpay ay kanilang makamtan. Lagi natin iisipin at tatandaan, na napakasakit sa isang guro ang pagalitan ang kanilang mga mag-aaral para madisiplina ngunit, wala ng hihigit pa sa kabiguan at sakit sa kalooban ang makitang walang natutuhan ang kanilang mga mag-aaral, walang disiplina at higit sa lahat hindi sineseryuso ang kanilang tinuturo sa arawaraw nilang pagkikita.

WALANG PERPEKTO ni Art S. Paceño Ikaw ay nagdaramadam puso ay nagdurugo Hindi mo yata alam na kung saan patungo Ikaw ay naliligaw isip ay nalilito Ayaw mo ng gumalaw hindi ka sigurado. Ikaw ay napupuwing minsan nabubulagan Mata ay nakapiring daan ay kadiliman Ikaw ay nadadapa napipilayan din Hindi makapagsalita anong ibig sabihin. Ikaw ay nawawala minsan ay nawawalan Ikaw ay naniniwala pero may alinlangan Ikaw ay natatakot parang walang hangganan Ang kirot ay bangungot hindi mo makakalimutan

KAIBIGAN… KAILANGAN KITA Ni GLENDA P. AYALA

ANG PAGHINAGPIS NG PAPEL Ni Glenda P. Ayala Habang ang mga paniki’y Natutulog sa dilim Ang mga halama’y sumasayaw Sa awit ng mga ibon Ang hangi’y patuloy sa pag-ihip Nang hanging kay sarap langhapin Narito kaming nakaupo habang nakikinig sa mga salita na aming guro kay inis tanggapin na ang bolpen ko’y patuloy sa pagluha nang tinta sa aking papel ang mga sari-saring kaalaman ang utak ko ang may gawa at patuloy na nangingibabaw patuloy na nananaig ang mga ideyang nakaukit sa aking isipan ay unti-unti nang naglalaho para bang mga luha na dahan- dahang nawawala ang papel ay nagsimula ng lumuha natahimik sa gitna ng pagsulat ng mapagtanto kong ang bolpen ay mamamatay na.


BUGTONG ni Nympha M. Dumdum

NGITI Ni: GLENDA P. AYALA

Maraming emosyon ang itinatago, Kunwari masaya at walang problema. Ngunit ang totoo halos umiyak na, Sa sama ng loob na dinadala Ang tingin sa’yo ay masayahin Ngunit sama ng loo bang kinikimkim. Ngiti mong puno ng iyong mga lihim, Ang natatangi mong kalaban sa dilim. Huwag mong itago totoo mong saloobin, I;abas mo ito at wag sarilinin Maging totoo ka sa iyong sarili, At wag dapat maging makasarili. Sana sa susunod ngiti mo’y totoo na, Nang ika’y tuluyang maging masaya. Maging Malaya sa iyong mga problema, At makita ngiti mong kaiga-igaya.

Paggamit ng teknolohiya, may mabuti nga bang naidudulot sa mga kabataan? Talumpati ni Nympha M. Dumdum

"Ang ganda ng presentation mo kanina bes, ang PPT mo ang ganda, at ang mgacrslides, buhay na buhay." "Mare, bakit nga ba nagpakamatay ang anak ni Aleng Nena?" "Naku, mare 'di ba nga mataba 'ton? Eh, sabi raw hindi kinaya ang mga pambubully sa internet na natatanggap ng kanyang anak kaya ayun, nagpakamatay, na-depress at na-stress yata." Dalawang pananaw; magandang dulot at masamang epekto. Ikaw? Isa ka rin ba sa nakararanas ng ganitong mga sitwasyon? Isang mapagpalang araw mga kapwa ko mag-aaral at sa ating guro na si Dr. Leopoldo Transona, Jr. Kung ating pakaisipin, ang teknolohiya ay parts na ng buhay ng tao, ngunit sa patuloy na pag-unlad nito, ay ang patuloy din na pang-aabuso sa paggamit nito. Imbes na gamitin sa tama ay ginagamit pa sa masasamang Gawain, minsan pa nga'y may mababalitaan ka na lamang sa mga pahayagan, radyo at telebisyon na may nagpapakamatay dahil sa cyverbullying. 'Di ba nga nakakaalarma na? Ngunit tayo'y tumingin sa mabuting epekto nito, marami, marami tayong nakukuha, nariyan ang mas mapapadali

ang pagkuha ng mga impormasyon para takdang-aralin natin ay masagutan at marami pang ibang magagandang epektong hatid ang pag-unlad ng teknolohiya, ngunit kakambal na yata ng mabuti ang masama. Mapalad nga tayong mga kabataan sa ngayon, kaysa sa mga kabataan noon, Alam niyo ba kung bakit? Kasi ngayon, isang pindot mo lang, ayan na ang sagot, isang pindot mo lang, solve na ang problema mo, oh 'di ba? Ang bills, pero noon, Diyos ko day! Mano-mano, buklat dito, buklat doon at hindi pa kompleto ang mga kagamitan sa pag-aaral. Huwag tayong padadala sa mga nangyayari sa ating kapaligiran. Tamang paggamit ng teknolohiya, disiplina sa sarili at higit sa lahat ang pagsunod sa mga magulang ay higit na kailangan upang hindi tayo mapariwara at huwag tuluyang lamunin ng teknolohiya. Tayo ang magpatakbo sa teknolohiya, hindi ang tayo ang patakbuhin nito. Nasa acting mga palad nakasalalay kung paano tayo uunlad gamit ang teknolohiya sa tamang gawa, nasa ating mga palad nakasalalay kung gagamitin natin ito sa tama o masama. Gising na mga kabataan! Gamitin ang teknolohiya sa tamang pamamaraan!


Tokneneng Zharina Joy N. Monedero

Palabas ako ng gate ng tumambad sa akin ang mga naghilerang vendors ng streetfoods. Nakaramdam ako ng gutom dala na rin ng maghapong kakaupo at kakarinig sa seminar ng college namin. Biglang hinanap ng dila ko ang maasim-asim na lasa ng sawsawan at medyo matabang na manamis namis na lasa ng mga kulay kahel na bilog na tiitinda ni manong. “manong pabili nga po lima”. “Self- service ineng. Kung gusto mong makatikim ng ligaya, magsariling sikap ka”. napatingin nalang ako kay manong na abala sa pagbabalat ng itlog. Dahan-dahan kong tinuhog ng stick ang mga bilog-bilog na bagay na naglalanguyan sa kumukulo-kulo pang mantika. Sa wakas natuhog ko na, di ko mapigilan sarili ko na maglaway kaya kumagat ako. Mainit, nararamdaman ko ang nanunuot na hapdi at sakit na tila bumibiyak sa kada hiwa ng dila ko. Umalingawngaw sa isip ko ang boses ni mama na nagsasabing “ huwag agad susubo kapag mainit pa”. “tsk di na naman sumunod”, bigla ko nalang nasabi sa sarili ko. Tulad ng di ko pagsunod kay mama at pagsunod ko sa kasintahan ko noon. Nang sabihin ni mama na “11- anyos ka pa lang anak, wala ka pang alam sa pagmamahal”. Nang tinalikuran ko siya at nakipagtanan ako sa bf ko. Makulay kasi ang love singkulay ng mga bilog na pagkain na ito na nakatuhog sa stick na hawak hawak ko ngayon. Hanggang sa nabuntis ako. Naging masaya kaming magkasintahan. Sa wakas at natanggap na rin ni mama ang bf ko at magiging anak namin. Kumagat ulit ako, masarap pero malamig na. Parang kami ng bf ko ng nagsasama kami kasama ang isa naming anak. Masarap sa una pero pagtagal tagal lumalamig na. Hanggang sa iwan ako ng bf ko. Ipinagpalit niya ko sa kabilang buhay. Matagal niyang tinago. Na sa kada gabing huli siyang umuwi ay nasa club pala siya kasama ang mga kumpare niya, nagpapakasasa sa mga bading at mga pokpok na babae. Hanggang sa malala na pala ang sakit niyang HIV. Kaya pala sa kada gabing nagtatalik kami, imbes na ligaya ang makita ko sa mga mata niya ay lungkot ang nakikita ko.

Gusto kong magalit sa kasintahan ko pero mas nangibabaw ang awa ko sa kanya at lungkot ng pumanaw siya. Sinubo kong buo ang dalawa sa tatlo pang tokneneng. Isa nalang ang natitira. Paubos na. Tulad ng pagmamahal ko para sa kanya na paubos na ng malaman ko na hindi lang anak ang iniwan niya sakin. Iniwan niya din ang sakit niya sakin. Sobra akong nanlumo. Sinikap kong bumangon para sa anak namin ng mawala siya pero muli akong bumagsak ng malaman kong may sakit akong HIV. Muntik ng tumulo luha ko ng bigla akong masagi ng magkasintahang magkahawak kamay na naglalakad. Sinundan ko sila ng tingin. Sa isip isip ko, “ sa una lang yan, sa huli iiwan ka din”. tumingin ulit ako sa nagiisang tokneneng na nasa stick na hawak ko. Parang ako nagiisa, dala dala pa rin ang sakit na iniwan sakin ng pumanaw kong kasintahan. Kinain ko na ang huling tokneneng. Sa wakas ubos na, ramdam ko ang lamig ng pagkain sa bibig ko. Tulad ng pagmamahal na tuluyan ng naubos ng malaman ko na ang kaisa-kaisa kong anak na nagpapalakas sa akin ay nahawaan ko na din ng sakit. Mula sa gatas na sinisipsip ng anak ko sa suso ko. Gusto kong sisihin ang sarili ko. Kung di ako nagpaalila sa pagibig hindi sana ako nakipagtanan. Kung hindi sana ako nakipagtanan hindi ako mabubuntis. Kung hindi ako sumama sa kasintahan ko noon sa iisang bubong hindi sana ko magkakasakit. Kung hindi ako nagkasakit, hindi sana magkakasakit ang anak ko. At higit sa lahat kung sumunod ako sa mga bilin ng mama ko, hindi sana ito ang kapalaran ko. Tulad ng stick na hawak hawak ko ngayon. Kanina lang ay puno ng tokneneng. Parang ako noon puno ng pagmamahal. Ngunit sa kada bibig na dumadaan unti unting nauubusan ng laman. Tulad ko sa paglipas ng panahon, unti unting nauubusan ng pagasa at pagmamahal sa sarili. Ngunit tulad din ng stick na ito, tuwid, hindi agad mapuputol ng mahinang mga kamay ay ako na pilit paring nagpapakatatag sa malupit na alaala ng kahapon. Ngayon, 4th year college na ko pinili ko paring ituloy ang pag-aaral ko. Habang ang anak ko ay nasa pag-aalaga ng mama ko. Salamat sa siyensya at teknolohiya at nabigyan ako ng pag-asa na gumaling. Dalawang beses sa isang linggo kami sumasailalim sa treatment. Hindi man tuluyang mawala ang sakit basta mapigilan ang paglala. Salamat Tokneneng ng dahil sayo naalala ko ang kahapon. Para kang kumaTok na Neneng sa puso ko.

#Kabataan Christine kaye Renegado

Sabi ni Dr. Jose Rizal “Ang kabataan ang pag-asa ng ating bayan.” Ngunit asan na ang sinasabi niyang kabataan? Sa mga madlang manonood, sa kapwa ko kamag-aral, sa aking guro at sa mga taong naririto, magandang araw po. Ang katagang sinabi ng tinagurian nating bayani ay parang isang sirang plakang pauli-ulit ng nababanggit, paulit-ulit na naririnig at paulit-ulit na nasisingit sa mga katagang ating sinasabi. Ngunit, asan na ba ang sinasabi niyang kabataang pag-asa nitong bayan. Tila ba wala ng kabataa. Ay! Meroon palang kabataan, pero hindi na nga lang pag-asa nitong bayan. Ayon kasi kinain na ng Sistema ng K-drama. Nagpupuyat sa gabi matapos lang ang episode ng Legend of the Blue Sea. Kahit kinabukasan wala siyang sagot sa episode ng Field Study. Yung kabataan na post ng post sa facebook ng kanyang #OOTD. Mukhang mayaman sa kasuotan. Pero yung tuition fee nakalimutan niyang bayaran. Sandamakmak na lugar ang naputahan. Pero yung registrar nakalimutan niyang nanamang pilahan. May incomplete na pala siya di nya pa nakita. Kaya pasalubong sa ina tress na pulang pulang. Nakabold letter pa. Meroon rin naming kabataan na umaaksyon. Nag post ng #PrayforMarawi. Pero pakatapos, ayun nasa isang tabi. Nagrereview ng mga post sa fb. Hindi na dumeretso sa simbahan at do’n nag dasal. Para naman mabigyan ng katuturan ang kanyang tinuran. Kamustahin nalang natin kalagayan nila sa iskwelahan. Book report daw di pa nila nasisimulan. Abalang-abala kasi ka-iinstagram. Yung iba naman Wattpad ang ginawang libangan. Hugot ng hugot wala naman love life. Hindi nalang nag-review para sa finals. Baka sakaling tumama sa multiple choice ni Ma’am. Kabataan imbis na libro ang nasa harapan. Ayon nasa computeran. Nakikipagpatentero sa ibang kabataan. Modernong laro na raw ito para sa modernong kabataan. Kailangan daw makipagsabayan para hindi mapag-iwanan. Kahit pag-aaral nila’y mapabayaan makapag Dota lang. Ay! May bago na pala, Mobile Legend na. Pumunta naman tayu sa usapang pag-ibig. Sa edad na katorse, kinse, disisais, hinahanap na nila ang kanilang forever. Hindi na nakuntento sa pagmamahal ng kanyang ama’t ina. Kaya nag hanap pa sa iba. Inuna ang kalandian, bago ang gawaing pang-paaralan. Galing sa iskwelahan. Habang tumuloy sa kanilang tahanan. Dumeretso na muna sa tambayan. Hindi naman siya ginabi, inumaga lang ng pag-uwi. Ibis na tawaging “kabataan” ayon may bata sa kanyang sinapupunan. Masakit man isipin, mahirap man tanggapin. Ito na nga ba talaga kabataang tinutukoy ni Gat. Jose Rizal. Ganito na nga ba talaga ang kabataan ngayun? Inuuna ang kaligayahan kesa kabutihan. Nag-sasaya, habang ang iba nagdurusa. Pag-asa pa ng aba tayu? O paasa nalang tayu.


KWENTO NG KATATAKUTAN

ILAW

APARTMENT

Sa Diyos ay biyaya Ng ika’y makilala Oh! Aking sinisinta.

Pagkatapos ni Obet sa sekondarya ay nagpasya siyang lumuwas ng maynila upang doon na magkolehiyo. Excited na si Obet na makatuntong sa kolehiyo at makapagtapos upang matupad na niya ang kanyang pangarap para sa kaniyang pamilya.

Kay aking ligaya Nagbibigay ng saya Sa bago kong umaga.

ni Mark Francis B. Peralta (BSE 4e2)

Dahil galing sa probinsiya ay mahirap para kay Obet ang makahanap ng matitirahan lalo pa at wala silang kamag-anak sa Maynila. Nagpasiya siyang maghanap ng apartment na malapit lang sa unibersidad na kanyang papasukan ngunit nabigo siya. Natagpuan niya ang apartment na pag-aari ni Aling Ising na medyo may kalayuan sa kanyang iskwelahan. Sinamahan siya ni Aling Ising na mag ikot-ikot sa apartment at sabaynang ipinaliwanag ni aling Ising ang mga rules ang regulations sa apartment. May kalumaan na ang apartment at kung mapapansin ay gawa pa sa mga kahoy ang mga dingding at sahig nito. May tatlong palapag ang apartment, ang iababa ay ang sala at kusina, sa pangalawang palapag ay may apat na kuwartoat banyo, sa ikatlong palapag ay may apat na kwarto rin ngnit walang banyo kaya kung maliligo at magbabanyo ka ay kailangan mo pang bumaba sa ikalawang palapag ng apartment.nagpasya si Obrt na dito nalang mangupahan. Ngunit iba ang nararamdaman ni Obet apartment na ito, tila ba may bumabagabag sa kanya at pakiramdam niya na may nakatingin sa kanya ngunit hindi na niya ito pinansin. Nasa ikatlong palapag na ang kuwarto ni obet sapagkat wala ng bakante sa ikalawang palapag. Nagsimula nang maglinis si Obet ng kanyang kwarto upang maayos na niya ang kanyang mga gamit at para makapagpahinga na rin sya. Tanging mga mag-aaral lamang ang nakatira sa apartment. Si Aling Ising naman ay pumupunta lamang sa apartment tuwing maniningil. Kinagabihan pagkatapos ni Obet maghapunan ay agad siyang naligo upang presko ang kanyang pagtulog. Sa banyo ay may naramdaman siyang kakaiba, at ang ipinagtataka niya ay kung bakit may langaw sa loob ng banyo. Inisip niya nalang na baka madumi lang kaya nilinisan niya na ito. Hating gabi na ng bigla siyang magising dahil sa mga yapak sa labas ng kanyang kuwarto, pinakikinggan niya lamang ito hanggang sa bigla itong kumatok sa kanyang kuwarto. Walang ano-ano ay agad niya itong binuksan, pagbukas niya ng pintuan ay wala namang tao sa labas. Iniisip nya na baka pinagtitripan lamang siya ng mga kasamahan niya sa apartment. Ngunit biglang may malamig na dumampi sa kanyang katawan, nagsitayuan ang kanyang mga balahibo at ngsimulaa na rin siyang makaramdam ng takot. Pumasok agad siya sa kaniyang kuwarto at pagkaraan ng ilaang sandali ay ayan na naman ang mga yapak sa labas ng kanyang kuwarto at kumakatok na naman. Dali-dali niyang binuksan ang pintuan upang mahuli kung sinuman ang kumakatok sa pinto. Pagbukas niya ay wala namang tao. Takot na takot na si Obet ng mga sandaling iyon. Paulit ulit ang pangyayaring iyo, hindi na siya nakatulog dahil sa takot. Kinaumagahan ay agad niyang tinawagan si Aling Ising upang sabihin ang mga pangyayari. Pagdating ni Aling Ising ay agad niyang ikinuwento ang mga pangyayari at sinabi ni Aling Ising na baka si Nanding iyon. Si Nanding na dating nangungupahan sa apartment at ang kanyang kuwarto ay ang kuwarto ngayon ni Obet. Masipag na mag-aaral si Nanding at kapag nag-aaral ito ay lagi itong naglalakad-lakad sa labas ng kanyang kuwarto. Dagdag pa ni Aling Ising ay makailang ulit nagtangkang magpakamatay si Nanding, ang una ay sa banyo ngunit naagapan ng kanyang mga kasamahan sa apartment. Yung sunod ay sa kanyang kuwarto, siya ay nagbigti at iyon na ang kanyang ikinamatay. Takot na takot si Obet at nagpasiya siyang lumipat na lamang ng ibang apartment.

“Same poles attract.” Pagkilala sa LGBTQ community Zharina Joy N. Monedero

“Opposite poles attract,” mga katagang minsan niyong narinig sa inyong physics teacher noong high school. Mga katagang pinaniniwalaan at pinanghahawakan ng marami. Universal concept kung tawagin . Ngunit ngayon ay pilit na binibitawan ng iilan. Sa araw araw na pakikisuong sa nagbabagong lipunan ay araw araw ding pakikisama sa nagbabagong mamamayan. Kung nagbabago ang sisidlan, nagbabago din ang laman. Minsan makakasalubong ka ng babaeng maganda, seksi, maputi, may malalaking hinaharap at mapapasabi ka nalang ng “Oh! My Venus!”. Ngunit mabibigla ka nalang na mas malaki pa ang boses niya kesa sa tatay mo. Minasan naman ay mapapatili ka sa gwapo ng katabi mo at mapapatanong ka kung ano pangalan niya pero halos mapanganga ka ng sagutin niyang “I’m Christine”. Sa pagtagal tagal ng panahon ay lalong lumalawak at dumadami ang populasyon ng LGBT. Simulan natin sa tinatawag nilang Lesbians. Ang gender na diverse dahil sa iba’tibang klase. Minsan makakasalubong ka ng dalawang babae, pareho ang suot, ang lakad at ang pananalita. Pero magtataka ka nalang ng ikiss nila ang isa’t isa tsaka ka nalang mpapaisip “sino sa kanila ang bf?” sila ang unang klase ng lesbians na tinatawag na Lipstick Lesbians. Sila yung mga lesbians na gustong-gusto at isinasagawa ang mga fashion ng babae. Mula sa paglilipstick, make-up, style ng damit at kilos. Pero definitely alam nila sa sarili nila na lesbians sila. Kaya girls, better watch out kung sino kaharap mo. Baka di mo alam sila na yung mga lesbians na nagatatago sa likod ng lipstick. Madalas mo silang Makita Makita. Nagpapakalalaki inside and out. Kung tawagin natin ay Butch Lesbians. Hilig niya magsuot ng panlalaki at hate na hate niya ang magmake-up. Mula sa army cut niyang buhok hanggang sa mala Jake Zyrus o Kaye Cal niyang outfit. Sila yug mga Lesbians na nagtatago sa likod ng supporter. Pero hindi ibig sabihin nito na gusto nila magmukhang lalaki, gusto lang nila patunayan kung ano ang tinatawag nating tomboy. Ang Stone Butch Lesbian ay isa ring Butch lesbian pero mas kilala sila sa tawag na

“Giver”. Bakit? Dahil sila yung tipong sexually pleasured na basta napaligaya nila ang babae sa kama. Ibig sabihin, sila lang yung nagbibigay pero hindi tumatanggap. Ikaw ba ay may kakilala, kaklase, o kapitbahay na di mo mawari kung babae o tibo? Malamang Lesbian Boi sila. Babae sila pero boyish lang kung manamit at umasta kaya kilalanin muna ng husto bago tawaging kuya. Marami din namang babae na itinuturing ang sarili nila na tibo noon pero ngayon makikita mo sa mall, foodcourt, at restaurant na nakikipagdate sa lalaki. Sila yung tinaawag nating Hasbian. Kung ikaw naman ay nalilito at di mawari kung ano at sino kaba talaga at ikaw ay nasa stage ng pageexplore ng true sexuality mo malamang kabilang ka sa Les-curious Girl . but then bigla mo nadiskubre na attracted ka sa babae kaya’t kinikilala ka na ngayong “lesbian until graduation” o “LUG”.

at hot ka pasok ka sa pitaka niya. The BI. Mga lalaking alam sa sarili nila na gusto nila ang babae pero mas mas masaya sila na kasama ang kumpare nila. Di mo masasabing bading pero mas ramdam niya ang word na “pleasure” sa kapwa niya lalaki kesa babae. Lastly, ang mga Ex- men o Trans women. Si wonderwoman na nakulong sa katawan ni Superman at ngayon ay nakalaya na. Guys beware, dahil pwedeng mas maganda pa sila babae pero magiingat dahil baka magulat ka sa Secret weapon niyang dala. Sexual disorientation kung tawagin ng iba. Madalas sila makaranas ng kritisismo. Pero lagi nating tatandaan na tao din sila. Ideny mu man ng ideny iisa lang ang pinagmulan nating lahat. May karapatan din silang tanggapin at igalang. Negatibo man ang tingin ng iba ay may positibo din silang dulot sa lipunan. Kailangan lang buksan ang mata at ang puso.

And finally ang Trans X-women o Transmen. Dating female na nagpaconvert into a male-bodied human. Realizing na sila ay lalaki na nakulong sa katawan ng babae. Sa kabilang banda ay kikilalanin natin ang gay community. Bakla, shokla, gay, charing; dumaan na sila sa maraming call-names pero iisa lang ang pinanghahawakan nila. Mga rebolusyunista na piniling mag-aklas sa lahi ng mga lalaki upang ipaglaban ang totoo nilang katauhan. Sila ang mga “Gay” .Mga lalaki pero mas nangingibabaw ang pagkababae. Tulad ng lesbians meron din silang iba’t ibang klase. una ay ang The Prep. Ms. Reader siya yung type mo. Sa mala-Edward Colleen niyang jawline. Sa mala-Jack Roberto niyang abs. sa Mala-Justin Beiber niyang dating. Hanggang sa mala- kpop idols niyang mukha. Siguradong di mo aakalain na isa siya sa mga rebolusyunista. Pwedeng may Gf siya pero palihim na sumisilip sa bouncer ng bar sa tuwing gumigimik sila ng Gf niya. Siya ay Girl inside but boy outside. Malamang isa siya sa mga barkada, o pwedeng nakakasalubong mo sa hallway. Sila ang mga tinatawag na Drag Queen. Madali silang maidentify sa outfit at makeup nilang mala Lady Gaga pero masel- maselan pag tiningnan mo sa baba. Mahilig sa boylet at malamang may Boylet ngayon. Sila yung madalas na tawagin ng nanay mo na ladlad. Pero wag ismolin dahil sila yung masasayang kasama. Mga gay na maraming pera. Nangangamoy pera ang kada sulok ng kwarto niya. Kung ikaw ay good boylet niya palagi kang may extra allowance na makukuha sa kanila. Ang mga tinuturing na The Daddy. Hindi nagsasayang ng oras para magisip kung bubuksan ang wallet. Basta gwapo

Tubig at Mantika Zharina Joy N. Monedero

Tubig at mantika; parehong likido pero magkaiba. Parang tayo pare-parehong tao pero magkakaiba ng ugali. “Ugali” ang salitang minsan ay mabuti at minsan ay masama. Minsan ay ikinabuti mo at minsan ay ikinasira mo. Minsan ay siyang nagtulak na magustuhan ka ng iba at misan para ayawan ka. Minsan ba ay natanong mo na ang sarili mo na “masama ba ugali ko?” kung nagawa mo, tatanungin din kita “ kilala mo ba ang sarili mo?” Sa mundong ito pag hinalo mo ang mantika sa tubig laging mantika ang pumapaibabaw. Dahil di maikakaila sa kahit anong aspeto ng buhay ng tao laging may isang mangingibabaw. Nagging mantika kana ba sa classroom mo? minsan ba ay akala mo naiiba ka sa kanila at iniisip mo na wala sayong nakakaintindi na para kang mantikang lumulutang sa ibabaw ng tubig. Dahil akala mo di ka nila gusto. At iniisip mo na nasa kanila ang problema pero ang totoo na sayo ang problema. Nag-aantay sila na lumapit ka, pero ikaw itong pilit na umiiiwas at lumalayo. Bakit iniisip mo na di ka tatanggapin? Bakit nag-atubili ka man lang bang lumapit? Kung di mo pa nasubukan, wag mong isipin na sa kanila ang problema. Tandaan mo, marami sila at iisa ka lang. kaya palagi mo iniisip na mabuti pa ang mag-isa pero sa huli pero sa huli sasabihin mo “buti pa sila may kaibigan”. Patunay lang yan na tao ka dahil napakaindecisive mo. Minsan naman sa barkadahan hindi maiiwasan ang may magbanggaan. Dahil para sayo tama ang isang bagay at para sa kanya mali. Para sa kanya pangit , para sayo maganda. Nayayabangan ka sa kanya pero di mo alam mayabang din ang pagtingin niya sayo. Akala mo close kayo kaya kahit anong jokes ang ibato mo sa kanya hanggang sa dumating sa punto na yung jokes mo ay no longer funny but deadly na ay sasakyan ka niya. Kasi iniisip mo na open-minded ka pero di mo man lang naisip na di siya katulad mo. pero lahat nga ng akala ay akala, dahil di mo alam sa likod ng mga ngiti at tawa ay ang totoong siya na pilit kang pinapatay sa imahinasyon niya. Tandaan pareho kayong tao, pero magkaiba ng inugatan. Umaasta kang karakter sa isang koreanovela. Kung saan ikaw ang bida at sila ang kontrabida. Na ikaw ang biktima at sila ang nangbiktima. Pero di mo alam na sa istorya nila, sila ang bda at ikaw naman ang kontrabida. Akala mo pinagkaisahan ka dahil na saiyo lahat ang turo. Pero di mo alam na ang katotohanan ay may iba’t ibang anggulo. Sa isang anggulo may tama ka pero sa lima pang ibang anggulo ikaw ang may mali. Matutong sisihin ang sarili mo, wag puro iba. Ang pagkilala sa sarili mong mali ay daan upang malinawan ka tulad ng tubig na malinaw. Lahat ay may pagkakaiba, ngunit ang pagkakaibang yan ay hindi tumubo diyan sa sarili mo upang ayawan ka ng iba. Nakadepende yan kung paano mo ibabagay ang sarili mo o ang ugali mo sa ugali ng iba. “Pakikisama” ang pinakaimportanteng formula para di ka maging mantika. Kung kilala mo sarili mo, alam mo kung ano ugali mo. kapag lubos mo ng kilala ang sarili mo, open ka na para kilalanin ang iba. Kahit makipagplastikan ka sa iba para matanggap ka, sa huli lalabas ang totoong ikaw na aayawan nila. Kailangan mo lang ay ang magpakatotoo ka sa sarili mo. Tsaka mo nalang mahahannap yung company kung saan ka babagay.

Mula ng makilala ka aking sinta Ating pagsasamahan ay subrang saya Oras ay kay bilis pag ikaw kasama Sana ikaw ay laging aking kasama Mga yakap mo na laging aking hanap Mga halik mo na walang kasing sarap Mga ngiti mo na walang kasing tamis At mukha mo na laging aking namimiss Yong mga pangako na lahat na pako Nasabi mo, ikaw at ako sa dulo Nasabi mo na aaway lamang tayo Pero bakit ngayon wala ng tayo? Napakasakit isip na wala na At nawala ang dating aking kasama Pero bakit mahal pa rin kita sinta Oh hindi ko pala kaya na wala ka.

Mandaragat Talindaw ni Marjorie B. Ombao Sa pagsikat ng araw sa dakong silangan May gintong pag-asa tayong matatanaw Kung ang lupa’y mayroong biyayang tinataglay Sa dagat may gintong tanging kayamanan Sa tuong ng lambat at sipag ng bisig Sa puso ng dagat kami’y nakahilig Ang alo’t amihan ng laging kasama Ang unos sa laot hindi alintana Kaming mandaragat may mithiing magiting Upang mapaunlad itong bayan natin Sa boung sambayan iaalay namin Ang puso at lakas dugo’t buhay namin.

2. Oh aking sinta Kung iyong lulukohin Ba’t pa dumating Sa isang katulad ko Na ikaw lamang 3. Ang isang katulad mo Na isang maladiyosa Sa loob at sa labas Puso tumibok Sa simpleng ikaw. 4. Sa aking puso Tunay kang nag-iisa At magpakailan man Hindi ito magbabago Dahil ikaw lamang mahal. 5. Aking mga magulang Kalabaw kung kumayod Pawis ay iniinda Daming salamat Sa sakripisyo.

‘Di ko alam kung saan magsisimula, Sa pagsulat ng tulang alay kay ina, Hindi sapat ang buong papel at tinta, Para ilarawan ang inang dakila. Inalagaan ako at pinag-aral, At binigyan ng wagas na pagmamahal, Pagmamahal na siyang walang kapantay, Na sa aking puso ay nananalaytay. Sa tagal nitong aking pagkakaupo, Biglang lumapit at nagtanong ang ina ko, “Para saan ba iyang ginagawa mo?” “Ito ay para sa inyo.” Ang sagot ko. Itong tulang inalay sa’yo ina, Nakasulat ang iyong pagkadakila, Susuungin lahat ng dagok sa buhay, Upang ang tagumpay, sayo’y iaalay.

TANKA ni Marjorie B. Ombao 1. Pag-ibig ko’y totoo At paniwalaan mo Ikaw lang mamahalin At di sasaktan Magpakailan man.

TULA PARA KAY NANAY

Elehiya sa dating kasintahan Ang akala ko, ako lang! Pinaniwala mo ako sa mga pangako mo Mga pangakong pinaniwalaan ko Puro lamang kasinungalingan

Naalala ko pa pinagsamahan natin, Pagsasamahang anong saya . Ngunit ngayon ako’y nag-iisa, Iniwan mong luhaan.

3. Ang aking puso Iyong subrang sinaktan Hanap ka pa rin.

Hindi naman ako nagkulang saiyo, Ngunit bakit ipinagpalit mo? Lagi kasawian at lungkot nadarama ko. Bakit ako pa ang sinaktan mo?

4. Pangulo natin Nanaig puro patay Ang plataporma 5. Aking pangarap Para saiyo lamang Gagawin lahat.
