And this does not ends here...

My sister just told me about her friends' experience with one of their teachers. Her friends are studying under Maples Collegiate's CVE program. They are Filipinos who recently migrated here in Canada. Of course, they speak Filipino.

The issue begins here.

The teacher made a comment on Filipinos saying that we are disrespectful for speaking in Filipino in public spaces. She said this in class. The kids were so embarassed. They are angry but they could not do anything.

My take...

1) I don't understand why the teacher has to make a comment so specific. Why Filipinos? There are a lot of people here in Canada. Each came from a different nation and, of course, speaks a different language. Why single out Filipinos?

2) English-speaking people go out of the country too. And I am more than a 100% sure that they speak their own language even if they are in a non-English speaking country.

3) Why say this in a class? School is supposed to be a friendly environment for students. A place for them to be comfortable, free of prejudice and racism.

4) In the current social, political, and economic atmosphere, there is no space for this kind of thinking.

5) This is Canada. I don't know if this teacher ever heard of the word DIVERSITY.

6) And seriously, this teacher should go back to college. He/She might have skipped an awful lot of classes. He/She graduated with a narrow mind. One suggestion, he/she should take a course on anthropology.

I speak Filipino with my friends and with my family because THIS is our language. There is no reason for me to stop speaking in Filipino just because I live here. Language is a very important part of a culture. Killing a language and/or stopping someone to use a language, for me, is a crime and a disrespect to the culture the other person has.

Napagisip ako kanina nung video ni David Suzuki na pinapanood sa amin sa Anthro.

The Big 20

Kasi magtu-TWENTY na ko in 20 minutes... Gusto ko magsulat para sa kanila.
1. We seldom talk about deep stuff but I love, love, love it. I appreciate the fact that I can be superficial and bratty with you.

2. My forever kadaldalan. I miss your kwento. I miss how we hang out after every exam, during holidays and vacations. You are one of the few people who I can sit down with and talk to endlessly without getting bored.

3. I believe you are one of the kindest people ever. I would ran out of positive adjectives when it comes to you. You affected my life more than you know. 15 years of friendship and counting.

4. You are one of the kindest guys I know. I wish you more courage and more drive to succeed. You deserve things that you think you don't. I'm here always.

5. I treasure you even if I feel people are telling you I don't. I appreciate you and I miss your company. I only wish the best for you. You are a beautiful person. You deserve all the love.

6. I truly appreciate the friendship. You are one of the people that I feel should succeed. You are one of the smartest guys I know and one of the funniest too. All the happiness to you!

7. I miss you! I miss the long talks over the phone. (You are actually one of the very few who I can telebabad with! )I miss the asaran. I'm proud of you for being responsible and mature. I hope to meet her soon.

8. There's actually a lot to hate and love about you but I chose to love you. I'm glad to have you in my life.

9. Gago ka but I have no complains. I like you just the way you are. You are smart. Very smart. We both know that. You are also kind, sweet, and trustworthy. Quit pretending that you are not one hell of a guy because you are.

10. I was so touched when you told me you both cried when I had to "take another road". Thanks for making laugh. I must admit that life would be boring without you two.

11. I love your attitude. I admire how you carry yourself and your honesty. Everyone should have someone like you in their life.

12. Underneath that tough shell is a person who's shy and reserved. I value your loyalty, and your honesty. I treasure all the things that we shared. All the laughs are etched in me. I love you!

13. You are special to me even if you think otherwise. I have been looking forever for that keyring you said you want. I'll give it to you when I find it.

14. You are a surprise! I honestly did not think we would click the way we do. Fun forever.

15. Almost 10 years and counting. We have seen each other grow up and become adults. I wish you would find the path you want to take. Wag na pasaway. Thanks for everything!

16. You have told me numerous times how much you value me and I want you to know how much I return that affection. Kahit corny jokes mo. Hahaha! Thanks for the friendship! I can't say how much I'm proud of you!

17. Miss na kita! I miss our tambay days sa stairs. I miss your trademark remarks.

18. You are one person who gets along with everybody. I trust your judgment. I admire your level-headedness. Sometimes I feel that I can't get through you but you have ways to assure me that you understand me. Thanks for the good times and more thanks for sticking up to me during the bad times. Love you!

19. I admire you for having so much courage in falling in love and in love itself. Hindi ko kaya yung mga nagawa mo para sa kanya.

20. You are one of my most favorite people in the world. You don't know that but, yeah, that's true. I mean, why not? You are one of the most respectful and most pleasant persons I know. I'm so proud of you! I feel so proud when you text me about your studies and how you strive to keep your grades up.

2 weeks before H-HS...

Parang hindi natatapos ang trabaho sa concert.
Pero grabe 2 weeks na lang.

Regarding school...I don't know why I feel that I don't have the time for everything. Compared to the previous terms, ngayon umpisa pa lang, I'm constantly running around na. At may na skip na kong klase ni hindi pa natatapos ang September. Hahahaha.

Next week is recruitment week so the group will be busy on another thing aside from the concert. Later, Arianne and I will prepare the things we will be needing during the week.

What else...

Lem and I went to P.Park yesterday.
Saw Patrick at Sears.
Tristan and Arianne came over.
I stayed up until 1.30.

And I have to prepare for the Hell Week on October. Waaah.

Britney at the VMAs

Parang wala syang gana sumayaw.
Parang wala syang gana magperform.
Lipsync na nga lang wala pang emotions.
This is not the Britney that we know!!!
There is NO SPARK at all.

Bring Britney back.
Save her from herself.

Kailangan ko na siguro magumpisa magbasa kahit di naman talaga ako nagbabasa pag wala pang exam.

Wala lang. Feeling ko kailangan ng EXTRA effort ngayong term para mamaintain ang grades ko. Nakakatakot ang mga major classes. Seryoso na ba talaga to? PSYCHOLOGY? Wahaha!
Ang problema hindi pa rin ako nakakaget over sa pasarap na buhay nitong bakasyon. Wahaha! Ngayon nga lang, relax na relax e.

(Bakit may rainbow ang post na to? Wala. Kasi gusto ko lang. Cute diba? dalawa sila. Hahahahaha!)

Sineserye: NBAD

Wala lang. Gusto ko lang ilagay dito na nakakakilig yung Natutulog Ba ang Diyos. Wahahahaha! Syempre hindi sya kasing ganda ng MSKM. Cute lang talaga. Wahahaha!

At marunong na talaga umarte si Jake compared nung kakalipat pa lang nya sa ABS.

Back to school

In a few hours, 2007-08 school year begins!

I'm actually 50% excited. I want to be back in the classroom and learn. The other 50? Well, half of me dreads waking up early. Early as in 7 am early. I'm so used to waking up at 10. Hahaha! Bum na bum!

Hay! Better sleep now!

Note to self: Tomorrow is a THURSDAY so don't plan your day based on your MWF sked.
