FuuunyScene sa MIS ka ISAT

Ay. Ay. Ay. Lemme blog about my own observation about things and scenes happening here in MIS/EDP Department of my beloved school where I’m currently having my OJT. ’twas every time there is an incoming first year applicant (IFY), I can’t help my self but laugh or sometimes burst into a ‘harakhak’ to some of their innocent mistakes: be it on the infos on the application forms or their gestures. But let me ask for your forgiveness if I found you or your gestures funny – please be not offended. HAHAHA

#FuuunyScene 1

Loud *Knock* *Knock* on the door. Wait for a minute. Loud *Knock* *Knock* on the door again. Heard whispering outside, “Way man tawo day.” -“Panuktok b liwat.” I would stand and have my way to the door and suddenly they would open it. Speak about #LateGuts. Ay maan. Haha.. Relate!

#NiceMindanao2016 #Part1

This trip is a planned surprise to our grandmas en grandpa in Mindanao, and an another surprise to the sissie, the amay en iloy, that this really pushed through amidst all constraints. We prayed that we can visit the oldies because tis been a couple year when we last saw them, and twill be a good feeling when we can personally see them. But we decided to go just a day before the departure. Bisan bayo wala kmi ka prepare. But because we prayed for this, so we went.

Basically i only brought 5 shirts, 5 shorts, 1 jacket, 1 pants and a skirt because we packed 4hrs before going at 8pm and because we wanted to travel light, coz you know, wala si amay nga ma bitbit kag wala man kmi inugbayad sa porter (LOL). After i fetched the sissie at her school at 9pm, she immediately packed her belongings and at 11pm we checked in at Iloilo Port. Sans dinner, we find our way to the terminal awaiting some surprises inside.

The whole port system is a mess. Passengers who came early had the privilege to sleep on the chairs – 3chairs each, also benefiting their bags a seat. So the late comers either enjoy standing or sit on the cold floors. We preferred the cold floor because the ferry will arrive at 3 am and its way too long to wait. So together we sat on the floor and rested our bags too, opened our dinner and wait for the ferry’s beep.

At exactly 3am, MV St. Therese of Child Jesus ferry departed Iloilo Port and its an eerie start of a voyage because of a low pressure. The waves are huge and unfortunately our designated beds are the top of a double deck – doubling the nausea. Di gid ya comportable mag sagi lakat kay da matumba ka sa ka balod. But its an enjoyable ride because of the many firsts the sissie and i is experiencing – *firstym to go to Mindanao together sans the parents *first over the sea travel together *firstym to budget our own money (and given that in travelling you should be ready for the unexpected expenses) *firstym to pack our bags this light (LOL!!) and *firstym to travel this far with limited balon nga food.

One of the things we agreed upon is to buy limited food pre-departure because we noticed on our past vacations nga indi man namon maubos sa byahe ang mga balon namon, gadugang lang sa bilitbiton. So in every stops we browse the stores for food that we like in that moment and should be consumed immediately. But I made sure i have enough of my coffee throughout our trip. Budlay na. Hahaha So heres some of our #terminalfoods: cup noodles and the free lunch the ferry is serving – rice + lumpiang shanghai in tomato sauce + strawberry crinkles.

Despite the apology of the ferry’s personnel that a possible delay of arrival at CDO Port, we arrived at 4:15pm, 45mins before the estimated 5pm arrival. I took a few shots of the port, at the ferry’s POV. Medyo gloomy gihapon ang CDO pag abot namon, pareho sang pag halin namon sa Iloilo.

The instruction of the experienced a.k.a. the parents “pag panaog sa barko, sakay dayon sa jeep pa Agura Terminal kag mag sakay Super 5 nga bus pa Malaybalay City (our first stop for this vacation.)” So we faithfully followed the instructions to avoid commotion back home.

So heres us bound to Malaybalay City aboard Super5 bus nga Super man ang aircon + ulan. Sa Iloilo mag ulan, kiber ang tugnaw, sa Mindanao ya, wala pa ulan, tugnaw na.

dscn9516dscn9518

A funny thing happened the moment we arrived at Malaybalay. The instruction was “Ate, a. hambalan mo ang conductor, ‘atbang Bethel Hospital’ kamo manaog. b. itext mo kuno kay Mama mo Bebing ang bus number kay bantayan kamo nila. c. i update nyo kami sang mga ginaagyan nyo”  So again, we faithfully followed all of those. But when we are gettin nearer, a text came from the tiya, that they are already in Sumpong. We have no idea what it is and where it is. She added, that instead of Bethel Hospital, we will get off the bus in Sumpong. We take no deal on the last instruction.

At 8pm, we confirmed that we are already at the heart of Malaybalay City, we became busy looking for landmarks that will lead us to Bethel Hospital. Mabudlay magtalang kay 1. indi kmi cebuano speaker 2. we don’t know the place 3. gaulan. Then the bus stopped at a certain bus stop, we thought that its only a normal bus stop, when suddenly a commotion is happening below. Its between the conductor and a woman, their conversation is inaudible.

Again, we take no deal on it but when someone shouted “NICE! GAY PALANAOG NA KAMO DA!” Nagla-aw kmi, we were like “Huh? may ano?! (avoiding getting paranoid of the news about mindanao, the terorism and all)” Ang iban pasahero nag balalikid kag nag tilindog gazing at us! Dungan singgit ni Gay, “Si Mama Bebing!” Dungan burakwit sang dala niya kag nana-og. Leaving me in my seat. In split second, i processed the whole thing, swallowed the rest of the ampao on my mouth, grabbed my bags and walked out while avoiding the confused gazed of the rest of the passenger. The other managed a smile while others laughed.

Pag abot sa dalom, ara na ang tiya kag ang pakaisa, ga bira bira kadlaw sa natabo. Makon mo gin sugat gd kmi iya sa babaw bus!

I therefore realized that Sumpong is a street in Malaybalay City. They decided to fetch us there because of the rain. Twill be hard kun didto kmi manaog sa Bethel Hospital kay malayo pa ang byahehon namon pakadto sa balay nila Mama.

A fun reunion and some catching ups happened in their house. Unfortunately, due to our tired senses we forgot to take even a single photo when we’re in Malaybalay City at our Mama Bebing’s blessed home.

Thanks again Mama Beng and Papa Tating for the warm welcome!

This is only Day 1 and 2 of our #NiceMindanao2016 Adventures. I’ll post soon the rest of the vacation.

JESUS in my SALN

11022874_10203966492669376_503983980_n

Cutest and wonderful nga moment samtang ga fill up ako sang SALN q, kay yawan q panumdum sang i-butang q sa Assets q… kay wala man abi q pagkabutang nga may monetary values nga akon gd iya gd gastohan (wala man q silpon, bayo q puro ukay2 and gifts, shoes q puro ukay2 man kag hinatagan, donation/gift ang amon ref, tv, laptop, Globe Tattoo Broadband, dvd player kag thermos, iya ka church ang amon pinggan nga ang iban bilin pa sa wedding gifts sa kasal ni Amay kag Iloy, wala man kmi lote, ang amon gna tulogan, Parsonage – iya man ka church, ang amon mga bedsheets, habol kag kurtina puro white gift mag christmas kag relief goods pag Yolanda, ang amon bugas, blessings man. hahahaha)

..then I realized nga wala gd kmi ya gli kun i-hold up kmi.. hahahaha
and yet happy kmi ya sa sini nga sitwasyon..
I resolved to one thing nga worth ibutang sa SALN q – si JESUS
Maybe maham-ot sini ang iban, matingala or wala lang ni sa ila
pero sa amon ya, Jesus is worth more than the price of the Earth in the Universe situated in the Galaxy… is worth more than the accumulated Assets of all politicians, businessmen, freelancers, beggars and thieves, hold upper, kidnappers, etc in the world… is worth more than the values of all the diamonds, golds and swarovski crystals, Dongyan Wedding and all the riches in earth..
because JESUS IS EVERYTHING. FAITH IN HIM ALONE CAN SAVE US.. CAN SAVE YOU… CAN SAVE ME… from the wrath of hell which the love for money or riches can bring us there.

WBAAFC Keswick Conference 2014

(an uberlate entry that summarizes our WBAAFC Keswick Conference 2014 experience. Here’s my behind the event POV)

5months ago, my Amay was invited to speak  for the YPs at WBAAFC Keswick Conference 2014. After fervent prayer, he gladly accepted the invitation coz he wanted to speak to the young people at a conference where he accepted the Lord and committed his life to Him last 30 years ago in Bukidnon. He was overjoyed at the privilege given to him. He prepared for it, even costing countless sleepless nights, research here, read there and countless hours sitting at his study table.

December 21, 2014 came and he knew God had readied his heart to preach for God’s message (first out of 5) and here he is polishing it.

Please help us pray for the YPs who committed their souls to God for full time Ministry. May the commitment they made that night stayed in their hearts for God’s usability.

What amazed us in this Keswick Conference was the format – Camp-ferencing! There are Basketball and Volleyball Tournaments and lots of parlor games enjoyed by the YPs and even by the Speaker and Pastors.

Biskan Minilyon pa nga Yolanda…

by: NiceGay PLeving

 

Yolanda. Maanyag nga ngalan kon aton pamati-an

Kaangay sang paghinuni sang mga kapispisan

Daw ikaw gina ili-ili kun imo pamalandungan

Aton dayawon kay matahom ang Yolanda nga ngalan.

 

Apang sang nagligad nga tuig natagaan ini sang lain nga atensyon

Tungod nang-guba sang mga balay kag pang-anod sang mga pananom

Nagdangat sang sakit sa ulo kag tuman nga kunsomisyon

Sa mga tawo nga iya gin-labyan, sang mga panganod nag gu-om

 

Sang gin-anonsyo sang PAGASA ang Bagyong Yolanda

Kami wala gin-kulbaan ukon kami wala nag sala-sala

Kay abi namon ini ulan kag mahina nga hangin lamang

Apang ini gali makusog, nagsobra sa amon ginla-uman

 

Oh Bagyong Yolanda NGAA man?!

Kami imo gin pa-antos kag ginbaya-an

Sa tunga sining trahedya kag sirkumstansya…

Apang ini tanan gali, yara sa mga plano NIYA.

 

Amon na realisar nga ini tanan gintugot Niya,

Tungod may rason kag tinutuyo Sing-iya

Kay kita nga tawo dali mabalaka

Pamasul-basol kag pagduda ang upisyo ta.

 

Tabog nga mga atop, tumba nga mga kudal kag puno sang kahoy

Linapta sa palibot – sa kunsumisyon, abaga mo mahuy-hoy

Ilabi naguid ang aton simbahan, madugang imo panaghoy

Apang ini tanan, amon ginkabig nga bugay nga indi ma-asuy.

 

Wa-ay nadula sa Iya ang amon pagsalig

SIYA ang naghimuno sang grasya sa bilog nga tuig

Pagsuply sang kinahanglanon, pagka-on kag tubig

SIYA wa-ay nagpabaya, sa Iya ka-anakan padayon nga ga amlig

 

Gani kita nga adlaw-adlaw pa nga gaginhawa,

Indi mag untat, padayon pag-tutum pa guid sa IYA

SIYA yara biskan sa minilyon pa nga pag abot ni Yolanda.

Kita indi NIYA pagpabay-an, pagabantayan kag i-anguma.

 

Sa DIYOS LAMANG ang TANAN nga HIMAYA!!! Amen.

Testimony: Miss Gay PLeving

Gay_Testimony 2

Hi everyone! Be blessed on how God showed His love, mercy and grace in my Sister’s life. This is her testimony.

.

.

.

.

.

“Maayo nga aga sa inyo nga tanan. I was informed to share my testimony early this week; I hesitated ky indi ko gusto mag huru hibi hibi dre sa tunga ninyo nga ang iban wala man naga pamati. Pero, akon narealize nga my iban man gli nga I know, gapamati gd and unknowingly makainspire man ako sa ila. So, sa tanan nga way plano, napilitan lang kag natak-an mamati, please lingi lingi sa ingod ninyo, kag lantawa kun gapamati sila, MAHUYA KA sa ila. Gusto na nila ya ma bless sa kaayo sang Ginoo sa akon kabuhi.

Magaumpisa ako.

Laban siguro dire sa aton nakakilala sa akon humalin sang gamay pa ako. And indi ko na pag i-elaborate kun ano ako ka sutil.. hehe. All my needs were provided, all the attention, care and love was given by my family.. amo na gani siguro nga wala ko ya nag nobyo2 ukon nangita man lang sang isa. Tanan na siguro nahatag nila – and one thing that I’ll treasure most from them in my entire life is for letting me know and enjoy Christ through their lives. Indi tanan sa aton my ara ginikanan nga tumulo-o. And I can say nga blessed ako ky mahapos sa akon mang-gawi nga indi ko na kinahanglan mapressure sa pag defend sang akon faith sa mga ginikanan ko. Tama na ka simple ang tanan, gamay lang nga lakat2, simbahan na.. kis a ara na ya mga membro, maligo palng ko. Tama ka simple dba?!

Pero I thought that my Christian life is as easy as ABC. Kurukanta kanta lang, puro pamati sa extension ka wali ni tatay, (ky na walihan kna before sa sulod parsonage before sang simba), kuro-kadlaw sa ika pulo na ka balik balik nga illustration niya, kag balik naman sa parsonage bag-o matapos ang threefold amen.

But then God let me realize nga ang routine sng akon life is not just doing those things. He wants me to grow and do really sang mga bagay that most glorify Him. He gave me the talent that what most say pang intellectuals or para lng dapat sa mga may high level of IQ. I developed that talent thru the help gd sng akon tatay. Winning various competitions may it be in local, regional and even in national level. Privileges’ in entering prestigious universities was offered. That I could say college life will be an easy flow para sa akon parents that they will not think over sa mga big amounts of fees in college. Everything was flowing so well for me. That unconsciously everyday I’m one step away na gli sa Ginoo. I was so “manhid” that time nga everyday as I woke up God was reminding me to Give back all the glory to Him for all the blessings, priviledges and all. PRIDE grew in my heart that I was so EGOCENTRIC nga ang akon lang na paminsar ako ni ! kaya ko tanan ya ah.. ari ko di sa amu ni nga university so anu pa.?. mka pagusto ko ya sang akon himuon… I took up mass communication for a year kay hambal sang akon mga teachers in high school I’am very good dw in the field of communication. and as I was in that course I was able to have a glimpse of whats going on in the media world. Having tours in radio stations print media stations and even touring in one of the biggest media station the ABSCBN big buildings and studious. Seeing the flow sa media ako naka paminsar kung para gd man ko di?! I begun to see the other side of it, the bad side. I lost the love and focus I had on that media thing.

After months of confusion, I decided to shift course ky indi ko maintendihan kun ano na ang gakatabo sa akon… with my inner self. I just can’t understand what I was doing.. Ga amat amat na dula ang passion ko sa chess – wala na ko gana mag practice, la na ko gasulod sa clase, la na ko ga enjoy sa mga gna pang ubra ko, nga sang sadto amo gid ang pinaka gusto ko. I wanted to understand – myself, that’s why, nag kuha ko BS Psychology. I thought that course would be my guide in achieving my desires in life and in understanding myself more. I know God was calling me already. But with that pride sa akon heart. I insisted on my own will .

Pero the same thing happened, and experienced even the worst case scenario. I struggled a lot in understanding what’s really the will of God in my life. How ironic, nga gna consider ko na ang will sang Ginoo sa akon, nga I consistently neglected His everyday reminder to consult Him in my every decision making.

Yes I learned a lot about humanity in psychology but none of those satisfied the neediest part of my being. I know everything’s wrong with in me. I felt worthlessness in myself even if I achieve something. I was too preoccupied by the worldly privileges and neglected what God had called me to do. I was so dumb in realizing that those moments when I started to lose track was God reminding me to slow down, pause for a while and wait for Him.

But still I insisted on what I wanted.

Until one day, nadakpan gd ko sang Ginoo and took everything important away from me – my parent’s trust, my college privileges and confidence in myself. I was totally left with nothing. I was so ashamed with myself, sa akon mga manghods and trainees who was looking up to their Ate Gay, to the people who supported me, especially to my parents who almost gave everything to me and most of all to my heavenly father who created me, loved me most and saved me from sin.

I was so broken that time. Guilt, shame worthlessness is eating my being that I’ve had considered myself a trash..

But then, In my serenity I so thank and appreciate God for that brokenness and emptiness. I could say that God loved me so much for reminding me and putting me back on the right track, for being so dependable, for reminding me that he is worthy of all praises in everyday of my life. For the priviledge of calling me to labor for Him and most of all For His daily sufficient GRACE who until now sustained me.

despite all of those, I hold on to the fact that our God is a God of second chances. I had been wrong with my decisions and choices I had been stepping away from Him, but I know, He will be there with me, to guide and still love me.

With all of those It Gave me no reason to not to Follow Him, obey Him and recommit myself to Him. Right now,

I praise the Lord for bringing me to the bible school and providing everything that I needed. From the financial, emotional, Physical needs and for new friends that blesses me sa ila kabuhi and most of all for my spiritual needs. Ineed He is really a sovereign God. A God who is so merciful and Gracious. That pushes me to have an intimate walk with Him daily. That the worth of life is Giving Him all the Glory and honor.

So before ko mag end, I just want to share sa inyo what I’ve read from a book that somehow naka ponder gd ko.

The moment that Moses came to years of discretion, he “refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.” Take that as the starting-point of the life of service. If your circumstances are making it impossible for you to carry out what would otherwise be the will of God, then drop your circumstances as Moses did; it rests with you to do it. Refuse any longer to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. You have been in the courts of men; you may have stood high in the favor of the people of this world, and your headship may look exceedingly brilliant: you must choose whether you will take the heavenly inheritance or the earthly.

All glory belongs to God. THANKYOU gd sa pag pamati.”

end.
