Writing and Laundry

I have never imagined my “talent” for writing can be used to wash clothes! This is a breakthrough!

Here is how it happened: My sister must do a welcome speech for their seminar but is doubtful as to her capacity to make a good one. So, she asked for my helping hands.

You guessed it right. I traded the laundry for the speech. Brilliant isn’t it? To make things interesting, I asked her to wash my bed sheets! I have no problem washing my white uniforms, you know.

It’s a give and take relationship. 😀

Oh well, I was supposed to post the speech but since my sister won’t allow me, I’ll end it up here.

I hope she needs more paper works to write. My jeans and shorts has been in the hamper for quite some time now. 😉

Mi Obra Maestra

Hindi po iyan kulungan ng manok.

Hindi rin po ito kariton sa gilid ng kalsada.

Mas lalong hindi po iyan gawa ng pamangkin o ng grade school pupil.

Ito po ang ebidensya kung gaano katalas ang aking artistic skills. 😉

Bale, sa ginawa naming ward class, tungkol sa mga Policies sa Ward; kung anong bawal ganito ganyan, ito yung gamit kong props.

Para hindi na kayo mahirapan sa pag-interpret sa mensahe ng obra, heto:

1. bawal iwanan ang pasyente ng mag-isa (kaya makikitang walang bantay na ina o matanda) pero bakit may bata? wait lang. basa ka sa number 2.

2. bawal bumisita ang mga bata 12 anyos pababa. (klaro ba ang <12 y.o. na nakasulat sa damit ng batang babae sa gilid?)

3. ang visiting hours ay mula 3pm hanggang 6pm (pero kita mo naman ang relo sa itaas? alas dyes.)

4. bawal magsampay ng damit o kung anuman sa crib.

5. bawal magsindi ng katol (including any na maaring panggalingan ng apoy) kasi naman, may oxygen kaya sa hospital, baka magkasunog. oxygen supports combustion pa naman.

6. bawal magdala ng radyo (radyo po iyong nasa ibaba na parang may antenna)

7. bawal magdala ng nakalalasing na inumin (katabi ng radyo, may bote na may RH)

8. bawal magsabit ng plastic ng basura sa higaan (see the plastic on the left corner of the crib? )

9. bawal magkalat

10. bawal maglagay ng bag sa ibabaw ng kama (Oo. bag po yung hindi nyo mawari sa may uluhan banda ng bata)

11. at marami pang iba

 

may nakapansin bang walang rails sa front side ng crib? hahaha

Glass? akala nyo?

tsaka to clarify things, baby po yung nakahiga. hindi po yan naputol na daliri.

Paalala: pinapahintulutan ko po ang anumang komento (positibo at negatibo) LIBRENG LIBRE po ang manlait. GO!

Para sa anumang klaripikasyon tungkol sa aking guhit, magkomento lang po sa ibaba.

 

 

PS. may gusto bang magpa drawing jan? hahaha

Two steps forward, One step backward

It’s Sinulog season once more. The 3rd Sunday of January has never been ordinary for me since I went to live in this city. All the celebrations weeks before leading to the grand mardi gras; the parties, the mall sales and events, the traffic, the food, the destinations, everything is just festive. Even I who is not a Roman Catholic is dragged by the celebration.

To give you a little background:

The term ‘Sinulog’ is derived from the Cebuano adverb ’sulog’ which means ’water current’. Folklore also says that these steps were the same ones used by Queen ‘Juana’, when she danced after receiving the image of the Sto. Niño as her baptismal gift. Another related story explain that she would occasionally dance up in joy around the community bringing about the image asking for graces such as rain, or the cure of a sick person. To this day, the two-steps forward, one-step backward movement all done to the sound of drums, is still used by Santo Niño devotees who believe that it was the Santo Niño’s prodding to have Baladhay dance in that manner as an expression of joy for being healed.

This year would be differentI will be at work! While everyone is partying and the day is as festive and colorful; I will be wearing white here  at the hospital tendering care for my precious babies. 😀

It will be better! Instead of spending money for food, alcohol, or any leisure, I will just spend time with people who are in need of care. That means, no cut off on the budget and no extra after-party hangovers, or bellies!

Though I might miss the bonding with friends, I am now openly embracing the fact that the holidays are gone! It doesn’t matter if the calendar date is red, if we have a duty, we do. 😀

Oh well, I plan to catch up as soon as I get out from the PM shift (2-10pm). Eleven o’clock is still early right?

Too bad I can’t watch the street dancing and the celebrities who will be in it. tsk.

Happy fiesta Cebu!
