We gather a job fair at the municipality of Calamba, Laguna. They assign me to assist the applicant searching for a job, they gave me their resume and I’ll give them our company brochure. While waiting for the other applicants, I was stayed beside my jolly (she’s the one interviewing the applicants).

I always told this every day I woke up, IM SO BLESSED AND LUCKY to have this wonderful life…

They are applying for production operator position; Ms. Jolly inspires me to pursue my good attitude when interviewing an applicant. She is very kind and approachable to the applicants, she never degrade them and she always wear a smile…

This people looking for a job are very young at age, I encounter a 23 years old man with 5 experiences working in different company, and I salute him because you can see his dedication towards his work.

Here in the Philippines we experience discrimination, biases and unjust treatment. I became a victim of it many times but I would like to acknowledge them because at least without that experience I will not blogging it right now. Those people are so called junk in the society.

Whether in business or in any institution we cannot avoid this attitude.

I just want to ask them if they know that the eye contact say something different, their moves and even their body language make sense. Discrimination is everywhere, after going to school to search for Dr. Gamban to sign my MOA form I go off at PS BANK in Calamba Branch. Gladly I meet super sociable manager and their customer service personnel I went there to replace my loss my prepaid savings, her smile on her face give me astounding emotion to talk about my life (some basic info like age, school, the company where I enter my OJT and the reason why I lost my ATM).

Their attitude is an example of a true-blood Filipino, they don’t care about where I came from or what is my family background, because they don’t care about that— I think they love the way how am I talking I just sit courteously and have a good eye contact to them. I love their professionalism when it comes to valuing their customer.

After I change my PIN number I went at SM to buy some stuff. I ride a tricycle to reach it because of the hot temperature outside. Then I ask:

 “manong magkano po?

20 pesos lang iha…

(sabay bigay ko ng 50)

Ito na yung sukli mo na 30

Cge manong  sa inyo na po ung sampu sa sukli…

This act is my way of showing them that even if  I am an ordinary person/student I understand how it feels working as a tricycle driver and earning just a little in one day and their health are suffering because of the burning weather. Practicing equality is not that hard.

_My self quotes for this day—never underestimate people; show them the significance of fairness. Pls.

Kanina after ng OJT ko nag- take out ako sa chowking sa may kanto ng Letran. Habang nag- aantay sa order ko at ineenjoy ang free wifi nila nalihis ang paningin ko sa sekyu ng nasabing fast food chain. Habang nakatayo siya ay pinagmamasdan niya ang mag customer na kumakain ng masarap na hapunan habang nagkukwentuhan. Nang mga sandaling iyon bigla akong naawa sa kanya at bigla kong nasabi sa sarili ko na bakit ang bawat Pilipino ay hindi pantay pantay.

Minsan ko ng nakita si manong sekyu ng chowking na kumakain ng kanyang hapunan ilang oras bago sila magsarado. Punong puno ng kanin ang kanyang pinggan at tila iisang piraso ng manok ang kanyang ulam. Bakas sa kilos ng kanyang kamay ang mabilis nyang pagsubo o pagkain dahil sa pagod at pagtayo maghapon.

Ang mga sekyu ang unang bumabati sa atin kapag tayo ay papasok at lalabas sa isang kainan. Isipin sana natin na pare pareho lang tayo ng lahi at nilikha tayo upang tumulong sa ibang tao.

Ako yung tipo ng tao na marunong magtipid, di ko alam kung bakit ganito ako kasinop siguro epekto narin ito ng mabuting pagpapalaki ng aking mga magulang. Nakita ko sa kanila ang kahalagahan ng pera at kung gaano ito kahirap kitain.

Simpleng tao lang ako, kahit na alam kong my pera ako pambili ng gamit na gusto ko pinipili ko parin na maging mapagpasensya, dahil lahat ng bagay ay dapat bilhin sa tamang panahon..ang panahon kung saan umaapaw ang pera mo sa bulsa.Dahil my panahon para sa ibang bagay, unahin muna yung mas mahalaga at mas kailangan.

God you are so good, thank you for giving me this inimitable life.

I just want to share with everybody how God created me in a life where I don’t need to ask for more.

Top 5 things that GOD gave to me:

  1.   My  parents

Tatay Cesar– He is very hardworking man, and exceptionally loyal to my Nanay. What I admire to my dad is his willingness to help, even if he has his own family to feed up he make it sure that every month her mother (my Lola Rodeng) is receiving a cash to support her needs.

Nanay Vicky- I called her a meticulous mom, an accountancy graduate and a great mother and housewife. Why meticulous? Simply because the way she talk, shop and argue is very different, she knows what she said. I guess the way she start a conversation with other people is passing by me. I don’t know why, she is always confident and ready to go.

Lola Flor– She became my dad, mom, sister and a mentor. My Lola is the best, even if she stops her school at a younger age her sweetness and care cannot replace by any diploma or a high educational attainment. I can’t imagine my life without my lola’s support and powerful advice.

2. Peaceful environment- I love my hometown (Nagcarlan), I describe them as back to basic people. Unlike in Manila and Calamba where people choose to spend their leisure time at the mall or go shopping, here at Nagcarlan we make it sure that we spend our time to our Family, God and business.

You don’t need to go anywhere to find delicious “merienda” because all around the place you can see magtataho, binatog, burger store, halo-halo and many kakanin with a cheaper price and priceless taste.

Another thing is people is very much pay attention with time and money. They want to work hard in a good way and they are not demand for more or shall we say they are contented and do not ask for more wealth. Money is very essential to them “kahit ung pisong sukli na di naibigay ni manong nirereklamo nila” ganun kami sa Nagcarlan. Bawat piso mahalaga, No wonder why I’m became thrifty most of the time. I’m living in a rural area wherein education is a must in every teen around.

3. Dissimilar life- What I do after waking up in the morning? Eating, stretching, reading, surf in the net, browse some books, help in household chores…

Nothing new right? Teen at my age here in our place first search for work before they buy food for the day, I don’t want to compare my life to them coz I know God planned it for me. Somehow I’ll try to add spice in my life by living a simple and meaningful existence.

I called it dissimilar for the reason that I have the things that I want in life, some of it are gifts surprise by God he don’t need to wrap it, he show me the way and the reason why I need to live longer.

4. Good Education- Entering in a school like in Colegio de San Juan de Letran is wow for me. I  am contented person isn’t but this school opens new opportunity, experience and bonding that other schools don’t offer. The teenager life there is mix with good and bad influence but it depends on the person. The secret formula to stay in touch with the people close by is to give tem attention and to keep sharing.

5.My attitude- I can adjust easily to the different situation that I’m with, I think for better solution sometimes I’d cried but more often I choose to think!think!think!. I don’t want to blame myself every time I commit mistakes; this is a lesson with no rules.

Thank you GOD for this life. I assure you to give it back to the people who deserve my help. I’m 20 right now and I will promise to make this life meaningful and every single moment is splendid.
