MILF doubts peace pact with Aquino government

Finally, the MILF realizes it! From the start it is obvious that the PeNoy administration was simply stalling for time until it could put its men in place at the ARMM. And now that they are there, PeNoy and his cohorts thinks that they can “reform” the ARMM and will have no need for any peace […]

Hephephep… ngumanga ka na nga muna… ehehehe… mahuhulaan mo kaya kung sino ang Prinsesang iyan??? “♫♫ Siya’y kilala niyo, siya’y kilala niyo, siya’y isa sa kapit-bahay, kapit-bahay ninyo….♫♫


Sinadya kong alisin ang kanyang pangalan sa Wallpaper para malaman ko kung mahuhulaan
niyo ba kung sino siya… click niyo na lang ang imahe para lumaki siya at mapagmasdang
mabuti ang kanyang taglay na kagandahan… sana sa ginawa kong ito… nakabawi na ako sa blogsary niya.

Guys and Gals, kamusta kayong lahat, namiss ko kayo, well ako naman e ok lang ako, ito at lalong pumupugeeee… nyehehehehe… nga pala nais ko lang kayong bigyan ng isang simpleng palaisipan kaya ako nagblog ngayon, sa huling update ko, pinakita ko sa inyo ang bagong banner ng blog ko na gawa ng kaibigan kong Graphic Artist, isang simple pero rock na gawa, sobra ko siyang nagustuhan, dahil since Friendster days pa ata e gustong-gusto ko ng gawan ng caricature ang mukha ko, ang kaso nga lang di ako marunong.


Kaya naman ng malaman ko na marunong pala si Frederick gumawa ng ganito, eh agad ko siyang pinakiusapan na kung maaari e papagawa sana ako sa kanya, dahil sa siya ay may busilak na kalooban at larawan ng isang mabuting mamamayan at lalakeng di makabasag pinggan e sumang-ayon naman agad siya, at tuwalalala, makalipas ang isang araw, meron na akong sariling banner na matatawag at may bonus pa, ginawan pa niya ako ng sarili kong logo, yahoo, ako na ang meron.


Pero alam niyo ba na ako ay isang model dyan sa Ermita, gabi-gabi nasa disco at nagpapabongga, e este inggitero nga pala, nang makita ko ang kanyang gawa, e inasam ko na agad na sana matutu rin akong gumawa ng katulad ng gawa niya, tulad nga ng sinabi ko, pangarap ko ito, pangarap ko ang maging isang magaling na Desktop Publisher o Graphic Designer, kaya naman ang ginawa ko, e pinag-aralan ko agad ang paggawa ng ganito.


Pero ang kaso wala akong materyales para makagawa ng cartonized pictures o caricature, hmmm, teka, magamit nga ang tinatawag nilang ABILIDAD, kung wala akong ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR, meron naman akong MS Power Point, nyehehehehe… opo mga kapatid, kaibigan at mga kabalitaktakan, MS POWER POINT po ang ginamit ko sa pagbuo ng banner na yan, nagsimula akong gawin ang korte ng kanyang ulo, tapos ang kanyang buhok, tapos ang kanyang mata, bago ko namalayan, natapos ko nang gawin ang kanyang pagmumukha (ahahahahaha), siya ang napili kong modelo dahil minsan na akong nabigo na iguhit siya ng isang magandang caricature, kaya naman hindi ko tinigilan hanggat hindi ko nakukuha ang tamang timpla ng aking mood, nag-ipon ako ng lakas ng loob upang sumabak muli.


Kahapon nga ng hapon, dahil sa wala akong magawa at ginagawa sa opisina ko, naisip ko na ito na ang tamang pagkakataon upang gawan siya ng isang magandang caricature kung caricature nga yan matatawag, at bago ko pa namalayan, ito sinusulat ko na ang aking naging karanasan sa pagguhit dyan, katakot-takot na sakripisyo ang ibinuhus ko dyan, pananakit ng likod, balakang, tuhod, siko, ulo, buti na lang may Alaxan FR, yahoo…. Nakakangawit din yan ng panga at kamay… tapos di pa siya ganun kaganda, pero ok lang, isipin mo naman, unang sabak ko palang yan at Power Point lang ang gamit ko, magtataka ka pa kaya kung bakit ganyan lang ang nagawa ko, hayst…

Anyway nais ko lang naman pahulaan sa inyo kung sino ang napakagandang binibini sa larawang iginuhit ko? Ang makakakuha ng tamang sagod ay dapat nakanganga buong araw, para malaman ng buong sambayanan na nahulaan mo kung sino ang babaeng nasa larawan.

Yung background nga pala…. Ninakaw ko na lang yan sa Internet.

Yahooo… salamat….

The Power of Attraction

Inspired by the book “The power of Intentions” by Dr.Wayne Dyer and dedicated to one of the most brilliant friend I had: Ms. Kartini Tahir. (Naks may bayad yan)

“Life is a boomerang,” she told me that one cold night as we were on the Rural Transit Bus raging its way from Pagadian to Zamboanga. It was half-past ten in the evening, the silence of the sleepy passengers only disturbed by the sound of the bus engine and the almost-mute volume of the tele-screen at the front showing some Hollywood movie. I was sitting on the aisle-seat beside her. She was seated on the window-side, her eyes looking through the window, fixed on the ever-moving glimpses of dim lights from the small residences along the road. She was in her own deep thoughts that time, as if looking at stars in the deep darkness of the night.

“And what does it mean?” I finally asked after being unsure if I really understood what she said.
She managed a sleepy smile upon hearing my innocent question, her eyes still wandering outside. Then she said, “Whatever you throw—be it good or bad—will always come back to you… That’s what it means.”
“I see. I cannot seem to disagree with that,” and I smiled back at her, she was now beaming at me like a young little sister who had just received a present from me.. She never said a word after that. She went back on her cozy seat and tried to take as much nap as she can afford for the long duration of our travel back home.
A minute later and she’s now sound asleep. I, on the other hand, was now looking through that same window, wandering through my own world of thoughts and imaginations; pondering on what my friend had just told me.

It was said by Dr. Dyer on his book entitled “The Power of Intentions” that our ‘intentions’ can actually become ‘physical energies’ than just mere ‘abstract ideas’. And as such, they also have the ‘power’ to attract the same energies towards them. The stronger the energy, the stronger the attraction it would cause. This is basically called the “Power of Attraction”.
Simply put, when you have positive intentions, you keep on having positive thinking, and you act on these positive actions, you will have the greatest possibility of attracting more and more positive ‘things’ to your life. You will be experiencing a lot of positive events or occurrences in your daily endeavor. You will feel blessed, hopeful, happy, fulfilled, and the list just keeps on going. Your life will be a life of accomplishments. Of course, this also applies to the other ‘charge of energy’: the negativity side.
This phenomenon is never far from our beloved Prophet (SAW)’s hadith in the Sahihayn (Bukhari and Muslim): “Innamal A’malu Binniyah…”, “Verily, every action is accompanied by its intention” (or so was said).

As how our renowned scholars interpret this hadith, we were taught by the Prophet (SAW) that the results of our actions will always be attached to how we intended (niyat) it to be. If we act on something, with our intention to have worldly gains, we will certainly have it Insha’Allah. And if we act with the intention of pleasing the Almighty Allah, we will get His blessings and promises both here and in the Akhira, Insha’Allah.

If you act for good, you will receive goodness. If you act for evil, you will receive its due. “What you throw will always come back to you”.
That is why our intentions are always given importance in our life. But we seldom place our focus and attention to it. We were too busy attending to so many things that are of less importance. Why do we have to be in fear, when we can still believe and be brave? Why do we worry so much, when we can still pray? Why do we have to be in despair when in fact, we can still be hopeful? Why be sad, if we can be happy anyway?
Why keep on thinking about the negativity of this world, if we are actually attracting more negativity to it? Why not be more positive; always look at the brighter side of each plane and have a better outlook in life? This is the Power of Attraction, and each one of us was given this gift, this power. So why not use it wisely?
Indeed I have learned a lot in this short post, and I hope others will, too.
Salam Kasilasa.
(Honestly, I have only read one page—just a single page—of that book. :-P)

Opening statement of Mohagher Iqbal, chairman of the MILF Peace Panel, during the 26th GPH-MILF Peace Talks held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from March 19-21, 2012.

The Clear Path Without Branches
         We are now in the last month of the first quarter of the year 2012, the timeline for signing the comprehensive compact between the MILF and the Government of the Philippines (GPH) which our honorable counterpart from the GPH had boldly claimed sometime in 2011. Honestly, we were fascinated by such boldness, which we know is very much possible if the Aquino administration is really committed to solve the age-old Moro Question and the armed conflict in Mindanao, following his “Matuwid Na Daan” or “Straight Path” policy, which I solemnly hope is the “Right Path”. 
Why I say this is possible in a straight path policy of any just or rightly-guided leader, if we view this policy in the light of the Islamic principles of “Siratal mustaquim”. In the daily prayers of Muslims, they recite the Surah Al-Fatiha, 17 times in five obligatory prayers and at least 17 in optional prayers, which they solemnly ask for guidance to the straight path. This is the first chapter of the Qur’an, which has seven verses that are all prayers for Allah’s guidance, and for stressing on His Lordship and Mercy. 
Siratal Mustaquim is the clear path without branches, according to the language of the Qur’an. Hence the Qur’an would describe the honest person as being straight and the wicked person as being crooked, which includes one who does not fulfill promises and commitments made with fellow human beings. 
It is on this premise that I am hopeful that under the administration of President Aquino the Moro Question and the armed conflict in Mindanao will finally be put to rest.  It is also on this premise that I believe our honorable counterpart in the GPH would deal with us in straight-forward manner; meaning, what has been committed, as a product of honest discussion, will be pursued and followed sincerely, including signing it without delay. From it we can move forward with much trust and confidence, as we confront the most contentious issues of the negotiation.
Surely and without doubt, the comprehensive compact will not be signed now or perhaps even in April, despite the claim of the honorable Secretary Teresita “Ging” Deles-Quintos, banking on “miracle” to happen. The greater fear is that we might not even sign it at all if we are not firm on our resolve to push hard in our negotiation. Sad to note, however, that within the first two years of the Aquino administration, we have not signed anything of great consequence that we can show to our people and the world that indeed there is big happening in the current peace negotiation. I am afraid that we might not be as productive as compared to the times of Secretary Silvestre Afable III, Secretary Rodolfo Garcia, and Ambassador Rafael Seguis, notwithstanding the fact that we have a counterpart in the GPH which is led by a brilliant lawyer and a dean of law at that.
Honestly speaking, despite the stark picture of what is really happening in the negotiation, Central Mindanao provinces are dotted with placards and streamers, obviously coming from the military, proclaiming for the imminent coming of peace in Mindanao. While we congratulate the military for this support of peace in Mindanao; in fact, it is also our clamor, we are also perplexed no end, because such excessive building up of public expectation, will have serious backlash if at the end, there will be no signing. I don’t know why the military is in such frenzy for proclaiming that peace is forthcoming in Mindanao. We do not question their motive, but perhaps there is a communication gap between those in charge of the negotiation and those on the ground. I do not want to view it as a deliberate act for some special effects of unknown reason. Unless we succeed in the current negotiation, this one-sided portrayal of the positive side of the negotiation will only create frustration amongst our people and the possible negative backlash is unimaginable.
Up till today, I hope that the Aquino administration is still pursuing the first best option, which is to sign an agreement with the MILF, and the second best option, which is merely to reform the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), is not being pursued by the government in replacement of the negotiated political settlement of the Moro Question and the armed conflict in Mindanao. And clearly if the first is the option of the government, then we can expect seriousness in the current peace talks. But if the second is now the option, then it is very easy to see. Expect commitment made to be changed randomly.
Lastly, it is perhaps of interests to you that we share of our historic trip to Rome, Italy from March 5-8 upon the invitation of the Community of Sant’Egidio, which is a Christian community that is officially recognized by the Holy See as a “Church public lay association”. It claims 50,000 members in more than 70 countries. It is also recognized by the United Nations within the ECOSOC.
Aside from being fascinated by the grandeur of Rome, we were also struck by the openness of the group for religious dialogues and their willingness to take part in conflict resolutions. They have welcomed us with open arms and they are seriously considering reaching out to the Philippine government and the Catholic Church in the Philippines, the two major players in shaping the direction of this state. This group has a good track record in settlement of conflicts from Africa to Bosnia Herzegovina, and to South America. They played the lead role in the settling of the bloody conflict in Mozambique in Africa where 1,000,000 died of starvation and of the fighting. The peace pact that ended this conflict was signed right at the room where we were received by their key leaders led by its president, Professor Marco Impagliazzo, 47, who is teaching history at the university for Foreigners of Perugia, and is now serving his second term as president. 
From Rome, we proceeded to Catalonia upon the invitation of Mr. Kristian Herbolzheimer of the Conciliation Resources, a member of the International Contact Group (ICG). With our own eyes, we were able to see how former monarchial and later dictatorial Spain has now transformed itself into more federal rather than unitary. Madrid had agreed to grant more and more autonomous powers to the 17 regions especially Catalonia and the Basque Country.  We have also talked to the movers of change in the Catalan political landscape and those who represent the status quo. Throughout our four-day visit, we never felt the stigma of the past and the curse of the 320 Moro-Spanish War in Mindanao. And Madrid, to our surprise, is at peace in allowing the Catalans to pursue their right to identity, language, and for a homeland. But still one of the battle lines of continuous hard bargaining is about the right to tax, which Madrid refuses to budge an inch to Catalan to this day.  
We also had a side trip to Granada where that famous Alhambra Palace of the Moorish King is situated. We saw the grandeur of the palace, the greatness of the architecture, and the impregnable fort where the last battle between the Moors and Catholic army was fought that resulted in the decisive defeat of the first, which ended their almost 800 years rule in Spain. It is an experience of a life-time that brought us back in time, as Atty. Datu Michael Mastura, one ustadz, and I slowly made our way slowly through the crowd of mostly Japanese tourists, to examine every corner and room of the fancied palace.
To the Moros in Mindanao, this side trip is very important. Had not the Moors been defeated in Spain, the Spaniards would not have come to the Philippines and probably the whole of it would have become Muslims, because at the coming of Spain in 1570, Manila and Tondo were firmly under Moro hegemony. There were also many areas in Visayas and Luzon held by Moros especially Batangas, Mindoro, and Pampanga. But these are all water under the bridge. History has it that the unconquered is now at the mercy of the conquered. This is what we are trying to correct in this negotiation: the great imbalance of the totality of relationship between the Philippine state and the Moros of Mindanao.
On this note, I thank everyone in this session hall for lending me his or her ear as we made a rundown of what I believe as the true state of this 15-year old GPH-MILF peace negotiation in Mindanao.
Thank you and good day!

Weirdo


Kanya-kaya ang trip ng tao, kanya-kanyang ugali, kanya-kanyang gusto, sabihin na nating pareho tayong mahilig sa pula, pero pakatandaan mo na maraming klase ng pula, may pulang matingkad, may pulang maputla, may pulang katamtaman lang, alin sa tatlo ang gusto mo? May mga tao na kakaiba ang ugali at mahilig sa mga di pangkaraniwang gawain, mula sa pananamit, mananalita at higit sa lahat kilos o gawa, ito ang tinawag nating mannerisms, hindi na ako magbigay pa ng mga karagdagang impormasyon ukul dyan, pero kung gusto niyong malaman kung ano ang ibig sabihin niyan, kayo na ang bahalang maghanap ng iyong mga kasagutan.


Tulad nga ng sinabi ko, kanya-kanya ang ugali ng tao, ako aaminin ko may mga kakaiba akong ugali na talaga namang sa akin niyo lang ata makikita at mapapansin, kung bago lang tayo nagkakilala, masasabi niyo talagang weirdong tao talaga ako, ok lang, kasi ganun naman talaga ang ugali ko, ako man din naweweirduhan din sa sarili ko.


Kaya ko lang naisulat ito dahil kagabi may nakita akong isang lalakeng may kakaibang ugali, every weekends kasi, madala sa Pinoy Restaurant ako kumakain ng dinner ko, pero kagabi, napagtripan kong kumain sa Jollibee-Riyadh, hmmm.. sarap, namiss ko rin kasi ang Chicken Joy nila at Burger Steak, kaya naman, doon na ako nagpasyang magdinner, pagkapasok ko sa loob, wapak… daming tao, punuan ang silya, wala ng bakante, pero ok lang, sa haba ba naman ng pila sa counter, tiyak may mababakante mamaya.


Tama nga ang hinala ko, sa haba ng pila, may nabakanteng upuan nga sa sulok, pero may nakaupo, siya lang mag-isa, kaya nilapitan ko na, tumayo ako sa harap niya na hawak ang tray ng pagkaing inorder ko, tinitigan ko siya, napansin niyang nakatayo ako sa harap niya, tumingala siya ng bahagyan para mapagmasdan niya ako ng mabuti, at sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon, nasabi ko sa sarili ko, “paksyet ang POGE-POGE niya… napaka macho pa”, nahulog agad ang damdamin ko sa kanya, “YES! Can I help you?” sambit niya, “Toksyet, ang lamig ng boses niya”, bulong ko sa sarili ko, “ahhh!!! Ehhh!!! Pwedeng makishare?”, naks, parang pelikula lang ahhh, ehehehe… joke lang po… pero peksman, nakishare nalang ako sa kanya since walang ibang bakanteng upuan, pumayag naman ang mokong.


Habang kumakain, may napansin akong kakaiba sa ugali niya, nang simulan na niyang papakin ang kanyang desserts na sundae ice cream, pak, nakita kong hinahaluan niya ng KETCHUP, huwaaaaa…. Ice cream na may ketchup, ano naman daw kaya ang lasa nun, although may napanood na akong ganito sa telebisyon noon, pero never in my life na may nakita akong ganitong tao… ehehehehe… oks lang naman, tulad nga ng sinabi ko, kanya-kanya ang trip ng tao.


Marami pa akong kilalang mga taong may kaweirduhan sa paguugali, tulad ng ATE KO, hindi yun mapakali kapag hindi niya malagyan ng baby oil ang talampakan niya, kahit na bigyan mo yan ng lotions, pagpapawisan daw ang paa niya kapag hindi baby oil ang gagamitin niya, kaya naman, kaming magkakapatid, todo tago na ng mga tsenelas namin, dahil kapag ginamit niyan, siguradong mapupuno yan ng baby oil.


Auntie ko naman na kapatid ng tatay ko na isang Malaysian, sa tuwing kakain siya, ang pinakaunang subo niya ng pagkain ay ngunguyain niya lang ng mabuti, saka niya ilalagay sa kaliwang bahagi ng kanyang bibig, yun bang sa pagitan ng ngipin niya at ng kanyang pisngi, kaya naman lumolobo ang mukha niya tuwing kumakain siya, at lulunukin niya lang yun kapag natapos na siyang kumain.



Mama ko naman, hindi umiinom ng tubig, juice, tea kapag hindi sa tasa nakalagay, naging ugali na niya ang ganun, nakikita ko lang siyang gumagamit ng baso kapag nasa isang handaan siya o sa ibang bahay.


Ang mga sumusunod naman ay mga kakaibang ugali na taglay ko, hindi ko hinihingi ang inyong panghuhusga, ang tanging hiling ko lang ay sana maunawaan niyo.

Ok.. simulan na natin…


Mahilig ako sa maaanghang, sa sobrang hilig ko, pati mga junk food tulad ng V-Cut at Lays nilalagyan ko yan ng chilli powder, kung pwede nga pati chocolate lagyan ko na rin.


Gamit ang aking middle finger, madalas kong pinapalo-palo ang pusod ko, upang makagawa ako ng sound mula dito, parang bubble sound na pumuputok (ugali rin ito ni SHE WHO MUST NOT BE NAMED).


Mababa ang toleration ko kapag kinikiliti ako, maaring pagmulan ito ng away natin, baka nga mapatay kita e (may ganito ugali rin sin AKONI).


Di ako mapakali sa pagtulog kapag may sapin ang kama ko, dapat wala, kapag may katabi ako, dapat kalahati lang ang sapin, yung area lang kung saan siya nakahiga.


Kung milo ang ipapainom mo sa akin, dapat dalawang sachet at walang asukal.



Kapag instant coffee naman, dapat dalawang sachet rin, kapag hindi siya instant coffee, 4 tbps ng coffee, 4 tbps ng coffeemate at 1 tbps ng asukal lang, in short dapat matapang na kape ang ipapaimom mo sa akin, kung hindi baka hindi ko yan ubusin.


Hindi ako naninigarilyo, pero madalas hindi ako nawawalan ng lighter o kaya posporo.


Mabilis akong matuto, lalo na kapag gustong-guto ko siya pag-aralan, pero kapag alam ko na, mabilis rin akong mawalan ng gana.

French Fries hmmm… sinasawsaw ko sa ice cream… sarap niyan…

Iilan lang yan sa mga kakaibang ugali ko… kung iisa-isahin ko ang mga kaweirduhan ko sa buhay, baka mapuno ko ang sampung pahina, di pa ako natatapos, ewan ko ba, basta naging ugali ko ng gawin ang mga bagay na yan, may mga ilang bagay rin ako na sadyang napalitan ko na, pero may mga bagay parin akong patuloy ko pa ring nagiging mannerisms.


Salamat sa pagbabasa.




Ang SAP


Eeeeeyehheyyyy… I’m back… matagal din akong nanahimik no… marahil mga tatlong linggo rin… at sa loob ng tatlong linggong ito… isang beses lang ako nakapag update ng blog ko… drama pa… nyehehehehe… anyways… the only reason behind was… I have no permanent desk in our office…. And I don’t have permanent computers right now…. Kung kanikano lang ako nakikigamit e no… tapos kung kanikanino lang ako nakikitawag din… nyeheheheh…. Wala na kasi ako sa dati kong pwesto e… tinanggal na nila ako doon, kaya naman lumipat na ako sa ibang departamento… ehehehhe… so ayun… temporary lang ako dito sa bagong depertamentong pinapasukan ko, may nagbakasyon lang kasing isang empleyado kaya kailangan nila ng tagapangasiwa habang wala ang nakatoka doon, so kinailangan ko ng dalawang linggong training para matutunan ko ang dapat kong matutunan, ganun kabilis, dapat mong maabsorb lahat ng trabaho niya sa loob ng dalawang linggo, nyehehehehe… pero oks lang… dahil hindi naman nalalayo ang trabaho ko sa trabaho niya… kaya madali kong natutunan ang mga iportanteng bagay na dapat kong matutunan at gawin habang wala siya.


Ngayong araw ngang ito ang unang sabak ko sa trabaho na wala siya sa aking tabi, yahoooo… magkahalong kaba at tuwa ang aking nararamdaman dahil matagal ng nangangati ang kamay ko para magsulat ng blog, neyeyeyeye…. Sa bahay kasi… pagkauwi ko… lately parang masgusto ko na lang matulog kesa sa ang magsulat at magbasa e no… sinusulit ko na kasi ngayon ang pagpapahinga ko sa bahay, hindi na ako nagpupuyat masyado, kasi kailangan ko ng magbeauty rest kasi para naman hindi ako magmukhang haggard pag uwi ko ng Pinas… nga pala… Uu… malapit na pala akong umuwi… yahoooo…. sa ngayon wala pa akong matibay na plano,…. Pero ang tumatakbo sa isipan ko ngayon ay ang pagreresign sa kumpanyang ito at maghanap ng bagong malilipatan na may mataas na pasahod, parang gusto ko rin ang magtayo ng negosyo pag uwi ko ng Pinas…. Pero ano pa man ang maging disisyon ko e sana ito ay nagmula kay GOD ALLAH.


So hayun na nga… kanina pumunta lang dito ang empleyadong papalitan ko sa pwesto, nagbigay ng mga ilang instructions sa akin… sinigurado rin niyang wala na siyang nakalimutang mga gamit sa office, nagpaalaman kaming dalawa, nagpaalam na siya sa aming amo at ibang mga kasama sa departamentong ito, sinigurado niya sa akin na maayos na ang lahat… isang buwan siyang mawawala, so isang buwan akong mangangasiwa dito… konting ukrayan at echos-echosan, konting ek-ek, tapos taasan ng kilay, mga eow-eow at iilang jejemon words, samapalan at sabunutan… tapos nun nagpalaam na siya, pero… PERO HAH!!!! PERO… bago siya umalis.. sinabi niya sa akin, “uyyy!!! AL!!! pagbutihin mo dito hah!!! Huwag kang gagawa ng hindi maganda!!!”, sagot ko naman ay “Opo Master”, MASTER!!! Yup Master nga.. kasi siya ang pinaka master naming lahat…. Bukod sa may Master’s Degree siya at PHD e siya rin ang isa sa pinakamatagal ng Pinoy na nagtatrabaho dito sa aming kumpanya, at marami na siyang naging karanasan sa lahat ng mga gawain at transaksyon dito e no, kaya Master ang tawag naming lahat sa kanya, kaya naman kailangan kong pagbutihin talaga ang aking trabaho dahil ayaw kong mapahiya siya sa pagrekumenda sa akin sa amo namin.


Lumabas na siya ng opisina, kumaway pa sa akin, sabay sabi na “Uyyy yung SAP… close mo… gagamitin ni Joven sa baba, hindi siya makalog-in kapag naka log-in ka dyan”, “Opo Master”, isa-isa kong mini-minimized ang windows apps na naka-cascade sa aking desktop para makita ko ang SAP System, ilang sandali pa, nakita ko na siya, akmang hahawakan ko na ang mouse ng PC na gamit ko upang isara ang SAP, at ayun… may error akong nakita… pak!!! Booom!!!!… meron akong accidentally na napindot… HUWAAAAAAA…. May nadelete akong isang function ng SAP… ang FANAR: Production… na siyang isa sa pinaka importante sa lahat at siyang pinaka ginagamit namin ni Master, urggghhhh… namutla agad ako… waaaa… “Bakit ka” tanong ni Master sa akin, “ahhh… wala.. ehehhehe” pretending na lang akong ok ang lahat, kahit na ang totoo hindi… ehehehe…. Anak ng … kapag minamalas ka nga naman… alam ko namang maaayos ng IT ang issue na ito, kaso hindi pa man nakaka alis si Master eh nakagawa na agad ako ng pagkakamali… saan ka pa… ke ALDO na… ehehhehe… sensya naman, tao lang….


Pagkaalis na pagkaalis ni Master, gumawa agad akong ng system request para ipaayos sa IT namin ang problemang napasukan ko, yahoo… ilang minuto pa e tumawag na agad ang IT sa akin, sinabi ko kung ano ang nangyari, at naintindihan naman nila ang problema ko, inayos na nila ito…. Ayun balik na ulit sa system ang nabura ko kanina…. Napangiti ako ng maayos ng IT ang problema ko’t nasambit sa sarili “Tuloy ang ligaya”, unti-unting lumabas ang buntot ko at sungay, pasimpleng nagbukas ng Chrome, type Blogger url, hit enter, at nagblog na.

10:55 am na dito, araw ng Miyerkules, taong 2012. Sa Office ni Master sa SABIC, Riyadh City, Saudi Arabia.

The Tausug Orthography

No trace of pre-Islamic orthography exists. The Tausog language (Bahasa Sug, Sinug) as we know it now started its Arabic-based orthography with the growth of Islamic influence in Moroland. Jawi, as it later to be known is not unique to Moroland; it reflects a writing movement in non-Arabic speaking paert of the Muslim world. Closer to home, Jawi used to be the pre-colonial writing form in the Nusantara. 
With the coming of the Western powers and the growth of their public school system came about the Roman or Latin-based orthography that we are now familiar with. In short, Jawi, is not a losing tradition.   
Modern day Tausog is based from old or pre-influenced form, to a healthy fusion of Sanskrit, Malay and Arabic, and sprinkles of Spanish, English and similar borrowed words. 
The origin of the language is tied to the origin of its people. A controversy exists. If Tausug is native to Jolo, why it is that it is not related to any languages endemic across the Sulu Archipelago, such as the Sama-Bajaw, Mapun and Yakan languages? Instead it is allegedly related to the conventional language classification of “Southern Visayan” (together with Butuanon and Surigaonon) or as reclassified by Greenhill, S.J., Blust. R, and Gray, R.D. (2008) in the analysis of the Austronesian Basic Vocabulary Database, with about 80% confidence, the Butuanon-Tausug languages are more closely related to Mansakan and therefore is now classified as part of the Greater Mansakan languages. Thus the language tree following this new classification is this way – 
      Malayo-Polynesian – 
              Philippine – 
                   Central Philippine – 
                          Greater Mansakan – 
                                 Butuanon–Tausug – 
                                        Tausug

Sino ang Tunay na Kaaway?

Ni Anak Iluh (Isinalin mula sa orihinal na artikulo sa www.anakiluh.blogspot.com)
March 6, 2012

Bismillah. Ang Pagpupuri at Pasasalamt ay tangi sa Panginoon ng lahat ng nilalang, Ang Mahabagin, Ang Ma-Unawain, Ang Mapag-Patawad na Allahu Rabbul ‘Alamiyn. Salawat at Du’a para sa nabiy  natin, ang pinakahuling Propeta Muhammad Rasulullah (Sallahu ‘Alaihi wa Sallam).

Mag-aalas siete pa lang ng gabing yun, Sabado, ika-2 ng Marso taong 2012, nang bumulabog ang isang nakakagimbal na namang pagsabog sa maliit na (lungsod) ng Sulu. May pinasabugan na namang isang tindahan sa may (town). Wasak ang kesame ng tindahang kaharap ng makinang ‘generator’ kung saan nilagay sa ibaba nito ang sinabing bomba. Parito’t paroon ang mga natitrang ‘shrapnels’ at mga basag na salamin mula sa tindahan ding iyon. Ilang mga tao din, ang noo’y napadaan sa lugar na yun ang nakahandusay na sa daan at sa gilid ng ibang gusali; sugatan, dugu’an, at dala-dala ang isang pasanin na bumigla sa kanilang lahat.

Tuminig ang alarma ng mga kapulisan sa tabing istasyon ng mga pulis at nagmadali na silang nagtakbuhan sa pinangyarihan ng pagsabog. Ang ilang mga taong nasa Masjid noon (gawang malapit na ang Oras ng Eisha) sa may Munisipyo ay nakibalita at nagsitakbuhan na rin ang iba patungo doon. Hindi na maalintana ang pagmamadali ng mga kapulisan at mga mamamayang tumutulong sa mga yaong nakahandusay. Habang maingat sa kanilang mga galaw at baka may kasunod pang pagsabog, ay parito’t paroon ang kanilang sigaw sa iba ng : “Tumawag kayo ng Ambulansya! Bilis! Kumuha kayo ng masasakyan! Tumulong kayo dito!” Pagkadala sa mga biktima sa pinakamalapit na ospital ay dali-daling nagtatrabaho ang mga narrs at mga doctor. May kanya-kanya silang inaasikaso. Nililinis at ginagamot ang mga sugatang ngayo’y nag-(aluhuy) sa sakit, umiiyak, at ilan pa’y nag(mumura) nagtatanong kung bakit sila dawn a walang kasalanan ang na(kiyalugan).

Labingwalo ang sugatan sa gabing yon. Dalawang ang daliang binawian ng buhay.

Muli na namang namuo ang kaguluhan sa maliit ng na bayan ng Sulu…

=0=0=0=0=0=
Sa loob ng ilang buwan na nakalipas, unti-unti na sanang sumasagana ang kabuhayan ng mga mamamayan ng Sulu. At hindi pa man nakahinga ng maluwang sa katahimikan, mula sa ilang daang taon ng paghihirap at kaguluhan, may panibagong kalungkutan na naman ang sumibol. Hindi maitatangi na ang kaganapang ito ay isang bagay na dapat talagang bigyang tuon ng bawat isa sa atin. Isang karumal-dumal na kremen na hindi kailangman, sa anumang rason, mabibilang na ‘wala lang’ para sa ating lipunan, mas lalo na para sa ating relihiyong Islam. At ang pinakamalaking katanungan dito ay kung ‘Sino’? Sino ang may kapakanan ng lahat ng ito?

Sino? Sino ba ang may kagagawan nito?

Sila ba na tinatawag nating mga ‘Terorista’ na palaging binibintang ng sandatahan; mapa-Abu Sayyaf man o anuman ang pangalan nila? Sila bang bagong grupo na naman ng mga kriminal na gustong manakit ng mga tao? Sila kayang mga may kaugnayan sa mga makapangyarihan, dahil wala namang papatol sa kanila? Sila ba na mayroong hindi pinagka-intindihan; na may pinag-awayan sa sinuman ang nasa lugar na iyon? O di kaya sila ba itong mga mismong nagsasabi sa atin na gusto daw tumulong upang maabot natin ang tunay na kapayapaan?

Sino? Sino ba talaga sila? At bakit nila ito ginagawa?

Ano ang maibibigay nilang mga kadahilanan na kaya nilang isiping gawin ito, na ni isa sa atin ay hindi kailanman naging makatao? Kahit gaano man sila karami; nag-iisa man siya o may isang grupo sila; may kapangyarihan man sila o nagtatago sa karimlan; at kahit pa sabihing ang kanilang mithiin ay para sa ikakabuti (sa kanilang pananaw); at kung sino-sino man sila na nagpasimuno, nag-isip, nagplano, at sumuporta sa krimen na ito, ay matityak natin ay mayroon silang rason bakit. Pero bakit nga ba? Ano ang posileng rason nila?

May gusto ba silang gantihan? Sino-sino? Para saan? Sapat bang rason ang paghihiganting iyon at ang ibang inosenteng mamayan ang kanilang idadamay? Silang inosente na walang kinalaman sa anuman ang pinag-awayan, o pinag-lalaban nila ang kanilang babawian ng buhay? Ano kaya ang gusto nila? May nais ba silang patunayan? May gusto ba silang takutin at bigyang babala’ sa pagsabog na iyon? Sino ang gusto nilang takutin? At bakit? Ano ang makukuha nila kung marami ang matatakot sa kanila? Tataas ba ang kanilang antas sa buhay? Dadagsa ba ang kayamanan sa kanila? Dadami ba ang mga taong susunod sa kanila at ang kanilang mga paniniwala? Mas magiging mabuti ba ang bayan ng Sulu dahil dun?

Isang malaking kahibangan at pagkakamali ang ginawa nila.

Sa bawat hapdi at sakit na naramdaman ng mga taong nadamay sa gabing iyon, tiyak may katumbas itong parusa mula sa Diyos. Sa bawat luhang pumatak mula sa mga naulilang mga anak, asawa, kapatid, ina’ ama, at mga kaanak ng yumaong biktima; sa bawat kaluluwang nadamay, tiyak ang Diyos na lang ang nakakaalam sa kung anuman ang katumbas nitong kaparusahan. Sa bawat pangangambang idinudulot ngayon sa bawat mamamayan sa Sulu; hindi na makapagtrabaho ng tulad ng dati, hindi na makahanap ng hanap-buhay ng may matiwasay na pag-iisip; nalugmok at nasakop ng takot at pangamba dahil sa insidenteng iyon, mayroong inihahandang kapalit ang Diyos na Maawain.

Hayaan nang hindi sila matakot kumitil ng buhay. Hayaan nang hindi sila matakot sa galit ng mga na(oppressed) na mamamayang Tausug. Hayaan nang hindi sila nag-aalinlangang sumira sa mga ari-arian ng iba, gumuho ng mga pangkabuhayan ng iba. Isa na lang ang natitirang bagay na dapat nilang katakutan. Isang bagay na hinding-hindi nila matatakasan: Ang pagdating ng araw na sila na ang babawian na ng hininga; sa mga oras na kukunin na ng Mahabaging Allah ang kanilang mga kaluluwa. Hangga’t hindi pa nila pinagsisisihan ang mga kasalanang iyon, ay tiyak, makikita nila ito muli lahat na kasinliwanag ng buwan. Mararamdaman nila ito lahat. Masasaksihan nila ito lahat. Walang pagdududa, sila ay lubos na magsisisi sa mga oras na iyon.

Pero, sino nga ba talaga? Sino ba talaga ang tunay nating mga kalaban? Sino ang dapat nating sisihin?

Sila ba kaya, na tinatawag nating ‘terorista’? Sila bang nagpasimuno sa pagpasabog na iyon? O di kaya silang mga nag-isip, nagplano ng lahat-lahat? Sila kayang mga nagtatago sa mga uniporme? Sila bang nakaupo ng maayos sa kanilang mga malalamig na opisina? Sila kaya na may kapangyarihan, na walang binigay na pansin sa nangyayari sa mga sakop nila? Sila ba na nagbabansagang nagtuturo sa atin sa matuwid na daan? Sila bang nakahawak ng sandata o mga baril? Silang nakasuot ng pula? Itim? O dilaw?

Ang kasagutan ay isang malaking ‘Hindi’, aking kaibigan.

Hinding-hindi sila ang tuay nating mga kalaban sa giyerang ito. Ang pinakamalaki nating mga hadlang, mga kalaban ay ang mismo nating mga sarili. Sarili natin. Ikaw. Ako. Lahat tayo.

Kalaban natin ang bawat pagkakataong tumanggi tayong ipagsigawan ang katotohanan. Kalaban natin ang bawat pagpapabaya natin sa ating bayan. Kalaban natin ang bawat katamaran, bawat pag-iwas na mag-isip at gumawa ng mga hakbang para sa ikakabuti ng ating lipunan. Kalaban natin ang bawat pagtatago mula sa ating mga responsibildad bilang isang mamamayan. Kalaban natin ang gawaing maghintay at umasa na lang sa iba.

Kalaban natin ang mga masasamang ugali meron tayo. Kalaban natin ang bawat pag-inggit, paninira, pandaraya at pang-aalipusta sa mga kapatid natin. Kalaban natin ang bawat pagyayabang at pagbaba natin ng tingin sa iba. Kalaban natin ang bawat pagkakataong naghahanap tayo ng mga rason upang makaiwas sa ating mga problema. Kalaban natin ang pagsasabi ng “Sige lang, sila lang naman yun, hindi naman ako kasali.” Kalaban natin ang bawat oras na walang tayong ginagawa para sa ikakabuti ng marami.

Andiyan mismo sa ating mga sarili ang tunay nating mga kalaban. Hanggang kalian tayo magbibingi-bingihan? Magbubulag-bulagan? Hanggang kalian tayo maghihintay ng himala upang magsimulang magbago at gawin ang mga nararapat mong gawin? Kailan ka pa magsisimula? Kung kalian ba malapit na ang huli mong hininga at huling-huli na ang lahat?

May ilaw pa sa madilim na lagusang ito. Tumayo ka, kapatid. Simulan natin ang panibagong pag-ahon. Magkaisa tayo. Magsama-sama sa iisang hangarin. Magkaisa tayo sa isip, diwa, aksyon, at sa kung anuman ang kaya natin. Ito ang ating Jihad! Oh, aking mga kapatid sa Islam! Hindi tayo dapat mapagod sa pagdarasal sa Allah na nawa’y lumakas at lumawak pa ang Agama sa ating mga puso; na maging masagana at matiwasay muli ang ating mga pamumuhay; at paratingin Niya ang totoong Kapayapaan at Kaginhawaan saating lipunan. Ameen!

Ang Panginoong Allah ang siyang Al-‘Aadil, Al-Hakiym. Siyang magbibigay liwanag sa lahat, Siyang magbibigay gabay sa atin; Siyang magbibigay katuparan at (Balas, prize) sa bawat pagsisikap natin, In shaa Allah!

Ang galit at poot ng Allah para sa sinuman ang nagpasimuno ng pagsabok na iyon.

Kapayapaan at gabay, awa at pagpapatawad sa sinuman ang susunod sa Aghama Niya, ang Islam.

Wa billahil Taufiq wal Hidaya.
Salam Kasilasa pa katan.

Buti na lang nauso ang BLOG


Sa dami na ng bagay na pinagdaanan ko, dumarating parin ang pagkakataon na sadyang wala kang maikukuwento, hindi ito nangangahulugang wala kang gana kundi ito ay dahil hindi mo makuha ang totoong kahulugan kung bakit mo ito ikinikwento, kung mahilig kang magsulat, naitanong mo na ba sa iyong sarili kung bakit mo ito ginagawa, natanong mo na ba sa sarili mo kung may natutuwa ba sa mga ibinabahagi mo? Hanggang kailan ka magsasalaysay ng iyong mga karanasan? Hanggang kalian mo ito gagawin?


Isang taon na rin akong nagsusulat at ngayon masasabi ko na marami-rami na rin akong natutunan sa pagsusulat, masnaging mapagmatyag na ako at masditalyado na, naging dahan-dahan na rin ako sa aking mga pananalita at mga ginagawa, masnaging maayos at masnaging deretsahan na, ang pagsusulat para sa akin ay isa nang libangan, isang libangan na sadyang kay sakit sa ulo, basagan ng utak, sunugan ng kilay at higit sa lahat pagaaksaya ng panahon.


Teka mukhang mali, dahil kahit kailan hindi nasayang ang aking panahon sa pagsusulat, dito sa mundo kong ito, nakatagpo ako ng mga kaibigan, mga kakulitan, mga kaasaran, hindi na ako magbabanggit ng mga pangalan, basta alam na nila kung sino sila, basta alam na nila kung sino ang mga tinutukoy ko, kahit na itago ko sila sa mga pangalan tulad ng “Ang babaeng mahilig magbisikleta sa ika-labing apat na kalye na siyang alipores naman ng prinsesa ng Mayan na katipan ni pareng jed na kaibigan ng higanteng may ari ng diamante na mahilig magbasa sa mga slumbook na nakalagay sa isang Pot” hayst dami nila no.


Maaring hindi mo makukuha ang siping iyan pero para sa kanila alam na nila na sila ang tinutukoy ko, kaya naman kahit na minsan ay talagang wala nang lumalabas sa utak ko na kahit isang katiting na idea ay sige pa rin ako sa pagpiga ng utak ko, dahil alam kong may pananagutan na ako sa kanila, at dahil ayaw ko ring magpahuli sa laban nila, at gusto kong makisabay sa kanila sa pagpapaunlad ng Pilipinas e este pagpapaunlad ng kanilang sariling kakayahan, sa buhay natin, kailangan rin nating lumaban kahit na alam nating matatalo rin lang tayo, dahil masmahalaga ang lumaban ka kesa sa matalo ka, di nga ba’t masmainam ang “matalo ka na lumalaban kesa sa matalo ka na wala kang ginagawa”?


Dumadating ang panahon na sadyang kay hirap na para sa iyo ang umpisahan ang isang kwento pero sige ka lang ng sige na parang walang iniitindi, sa pagsusulat naibubuhus ko lahat ng sama ng loob ko sa mundo at sa mga nangyari sa akin, sa pagsusulat naibabahagi ko ang mga bagay na hindi ko kayang ikwento, sa pagsusulat unti-unti kong naiintindihan ang aking sarili, unti-unti kong naitatama ang mga bagay na sa tingin ko ay mali, unti-unti kong nakikita ang kaibahan ng pagkatao ko noon at pagkatao ko ngayon.

Buti na lang nauso na ang blog, dahil kung hindi, hindi ko rin alam kung ano ang magiging libangan ko sa tuwing nalulungkot ako, nagpapasalamat ako at may taong nakaimbento nito, laki ng utang na loobnatin sa kanya, dahil may nagagamit tayo para maipagsigawan natin ang ating damdamin sa buong mundo, salamat sa kanya, kahit papaano may nagagawa tayo sa sadaling wala na tayong magawang iba.



Salamat sa pagbabasa.

Bangsamoro Brief

Bangsamoro Brief

By Maulana M. Alonto


There is no need to go into the lengthy historical narrative that underpins the conflict in Mindanao and Sulu as this has been the subject of the discourse that has been there with us since time immemorial.

What is imperative, however, is that in the collective quest to find a peaceful political resolution to this conflict, it behooves on us to understand its character, which, for quite some time has been erroneously called the ‘Moro Problem’ but which should properly be addressed as the ‘Bangsamoro Question’.

Positing it in this perspective rectifies the established notion and convention that it was the Moros who created this conflict and are not the wholesale victims of the colonialist and imperialist wars began by the Spaniards, the Americans and now the Filipinos. With this as a starting point, it would be easier to view this conflict objectively and clearly and, as such, proceed towards addressing its root cause, thus, allowing the formulation of a more permanent solution that is precisely attuned to righting the historical and current injustices committed on the Bangsamoro people.

In this context, the logical question that has to be asked is: what is the Bangsamoro Question?

In the language of international conflict resolution, the Bangsamoro Question is categorized as a sovereignty-based conflict. To be more precise, it is a conflict between two colliding principles, or ideologies if you may: the ideology of ‘Philippine sovereignty and territorial integrity’ on one hand, and the right of the Bangsamoro people to self-determination on the other.

The collision arose when the Philippine state, as the veritable successor-in-interest to Spanish colonialism and early 20thcentury American imperialism, imposed and applied its ideology of ‘Philippine sovereignty and territorial integrity’ on the Bangsamoro people, thereby ignoring historical and moral factors that should – using the yardstick of what is right and wrong – not have spawned this conflict that is without question debilitating to both the Filipino people and the Bangsamoro people.

It is, on the other hand, the dictates of defense – defense of their freedoms, their homeland, their identity, their culture and Islamic faith – that this imposition by the Philippine State was, and is, now being met and confronted by armed resistance of the Bangsamoro people underpinned by their reassertion of the right of colonized and captive peoples and nations to self-determination and freedom recognized by international law and the universal principles of human rights.

Since the right of a modern nation-state, such as the Philippine state, to preserve and defend its national sovereignty and territorial integrity is also recognized by international law, it would seem that the sovereignty-based conflict that confronts us is complicated.
This perceived complication as seen from and by the Philippine side, however, is not grounded on firm historical antecedents simply because of the gross injustice surrounding the annexation of the Bangsamoro people and their homeland into the Philippine State without their plebiscitary consent initially in the 1935 Philippine Commonwealth and finally in the grant of Philippine independence by the US government in 1946. Looking farther back, neither would the Treaty of Paris of 1898 justify the inclusion of the Bangsamoro homeland into the Philippine islands hitherto possessed by Spain and sold to the Americans simply because Spain never exercised colonial suzerainty over the Bangsamoro people.

Simply put, the facts of history put a big question mark on the applicability of the Philippine State’s right to exercise that principle of ‘Philippine national sovereignty and territorial integrity’ with respect to the Bangsamoro people and their posterity.

At this juncture, Moro right to self-determination should be seen not only as a political issue but a big moral issue that underscores the question of justice. It is a question that involves the existing colonial relationship between the Philippine State and the Bangsamoro people – an unjust relationship that has given birth to the conflict that hounds us to this very day.

Today, the MILF and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GPH) are engaged in peace negotiation. To the MILF, the negotiation has as its guiding compass the restructuring and redefining of the totality of colonial relationship between the Philippine State and the Bangsamoro people. Addressing the root cause of the Bangsamoro Question, insofar as the MILF is concerned, must be the primordial objective of the negotiation without which the conflict will never end and will go on for generations.
However, the MILF also believes that midway between the right of the Philippine State to preserve its ‘national sovereignty and territorial integrity’ on one hand and Bangsamoro right to self-determination (which would cover a wide range of political options including political independence) on the other, is a compromise political formula sourced out from paradigms of similar sovereignty-based conflicts around the globe.

This compromise political formula necessitates the creation of a Bangsamoro state or sub-state within the larger framework of Philippine statehood. Such a political arrangement precludes outright separatism but restructures Philippine State-Bangsamoro colonial relationship into one that institutionalizes parity of esteem between the two parties by way of association similar to what has been successfully adopted by other states which were in conflict with their captive peoples and nations.

We are in full agreement with this compromise political formula presented by the MILF to the GPH on the negotiating table. This is the last card, so to speak, that would allow, short of political independence, the Bangsamoro people the space and freedom to reassume their Bangsamoro identity, preserve what is left of their ancestral homeland, exercise that right to genuinely govern it, recover control of their natural resources within their homeland for their development and progress, and finally to live according to their Islamic way of life.

Should this be absent, we have no other option, no other choice, but to continue the Moro liberation struggle but this time for complete independence.
