Photo diary : South Korea πŸ‡°πŸ‡·

Taray!! Out-of-the-country ang peg! Kahit butas bulsa, go lang nang go!!! 

And it was a perfect time for me to reflect. 

For the past few months, I was (and still) anxious about my future, that I forgot life is beautiful, at nawala din sa isip ko that there are plans I did not know my God has for my life. 

“Yakap lang, at hindi salita” is what I needed the most right now. 

This is a reminder to all that life is beautiful. ☺️

Be a better shot

Most of us would brag how “literate” we are. We would say “Yes, of course I am literate!” , “Hello? I can read and write so therefore I am literate”.Β But did we ask ourselves if we are really a literate one? What does literate really means? And what is literacy?

According to Alberta Education, literacy is the ability, confidence, and willingness to engage with languageΒ to acquire , construct and communicate meaning in all aspects of daily living.Β 

It means that we are knowledgeable in a certain kind of literacy. But as with all other things, we still have strengths and weaknesses, but at least, somehow we know the basic of some of it. So, being a good reader doesn’t mean that you are literate, being a good reader means you can acquire and construct meaning from a text and think critically and able to communicate to the world. We don’t judge easily and try to understand every expression, people and situation perfectly.

Our first group activity last Friday in our Reading class was to give definition and classify the type of literacy we are assigned to. Ours wasΒ Logical-Mathematical Literacy. I honestly had a hard time answering questions with my groupmates, aside from it is not really my expertise but also of time pressured.

Logical-Mathematical Literacy according to Oxford Learning, is the ability to problem-solve, reason, and analyze information. It is also the ability to understand the language of Math.

This type of literacy often avoided by most students, including me, but I realized that practice makes perfect. We should also learn to appreciate this because we are using it in our daily lives, unconsciously.Β Knowing the basic “language” of Math can be your instrument to pass and understand this kind of literacy.

Reading and writing does not suffice to be literate. Logical-Mathematical Literacy may not be your forte, the same with me, however, it boil down from being literate.

And yes, I consider myself as a literate Filipino. I am doing my best to understand the happenings here in the Philippines critically. I also realized that literacy can also be a tool necessary to break those harsh social cycles. It is a connection to the world.Β Our words and ideas have the power to outlive us. Whatever the question is, literacy is the answer. Be a better shot!

Photo diary : Buscalan, Kalinga (2)

Dumating ang araw ng muling pagbabalik sa Kalinga.

Kasabay neto ang unti-unting pa nu numbalik ng tiwala mo sa pag-ibig. 


Wala pang isang taon mula ng nagmula ka sa lugar na ‘to. 

Wala pa ring isang taon ng kayo’y magsimulang lumabas. 


Zigzag ang daan patungong Kalinga.

Paliku-liko din ang inyong usapan.


Takot kayo pareho. Pero gusto n’yong subukan. 



Nagpalagay ka ng tatlong maliliit na bilog na tattoo kay Apo Whang Od. 

Nagbanggit sya ng tatlong salita, masarap pakinggan. Masarap basahin. Nangingiti ka. 



Pinadagdagan mo ang nasa likod. Mas mahaba, mas kita na tattoo.

Sana, sana mas humaba pa ang araw na magka kasama kayo. Hindi man lantad, pero alam nyo na totoo. 



Gumising ka ng maaga, ng nakangiti. “Aabangan ko ang pagsikat ng araw”, wika mo. Na naging panata mo sa tuwing may pupuntahan kang bagong lugar. Dahil ano pa nga ba ang mas gaganda pa sa pagsikat ng araw? 

Kasabay nito ang pag usbong at pagsikat ng magandang umaga para sa inyong dalawa. 



Totoo nga, na sana, sana magmahal at patuloy tayong magmahal tulad ng pagpunta natin sa Kalinga.
