Mga pedeng gawin pag inatake ka
Ng matinding pagka-antok sa oras ng trabaho:
  1. Magkape ka. Hmmmm....isang tasa ng mainit na kape: Pampagising!
  2. Di umubra? Re-arrange your files! Gawin mong Z-A ang files mo.
  3. Tapos ka na pero antok pa rin? Kurutin mo ang sarili mo!
  4. Masakit? Maghanap ka ng isang box ng tutpick. No , hindi para itukod sa mata mo....bilangin mo!
  5. Wala kayong tutpik? Kunin mo ang mop at walis. Maglinis ka ng opisina niyo!                                                         
Hohummm!...Ewan ko sa'yo, INAANTOK na rin ako! Kaya nga kung anu-ano na lang sinusulat ko ngayon para labanan ang pagka-antok ko e! Hay Ambot!

Ano ba naman itong relo, antagal mag-trabaho. Kelan pa ba mag-a-alas-singko, ng maka-uwi na tayo!

Undas na naman!
May partey at reunion
Sa dako roon.
Pero bago kayo lumarga,
Teka muna!
Tiyaking ligtas ang bahay ng bida!
Konting paalala lang po
Sa mga bagay na alam niyo na.

Kung walang maiiwang tao sa bahay ninyo, tiyakin ang mga ito:
  1. Ikandado ang bahay,
  2. Tiyaking naka un-plug ang anumang appliances at gadget,
  3. May burglar system ka ba? Paandarin mo na! ( O kaya, maglagay ka ng babasaging baso o kaldero sa pinto at bintana mo, para kung may pumasok , mai-eskandalo!)
  4. Ipagbilin ang bahay sa mabait na kapitbahay,
  5. Bago mo iwan si bantay, pakainin mo muna Inday!

Sa Memorial Park naman,  tiyaking meron kayo neto:
  1. Tubig at Tsibog! ( Nakakagutom ang pag-iingay sa ibabaw ng ating mahal sa buhay!)
  2. Kandila, Posporo, Bulaklak at Taimtim na Dasal ( Kundi, baka biglang hilahin ang paa mo, sige ka!)
  3. At ang bag ni Dora ( para sure anjan lahat ng kelangan mo! hihihi)

maraming BAN sa mga araw na ito!

Kaya, wag kang

Enjoy lang tayo Bay!

At para sa Gensan, 
Eto po ang POLICE Hotline:

Dunno how it all started. All I know is that one day, curiosity rose 20 ft. above sea level when I saw people posting old pics, baby pics, sepia pics on a thursday and hashtags #tbt, #throwbackthurdays came flooding the walls. Took me some time to ride the train but here I am, nakiki-throwback thursday na rin!

Before (above) and After (below) Pic of my Family.
 The beach photo was taken errr,11 years ago.
 The studio one was like taken last year (2012)

And there are supposed to be "rules" for TBT! 
Aha! Make sure you qualify folks! Hahaha!

Here's my first ever #TBT post which , surprisingly earned
 more than a hundred likes! Ganahan pud ta!

Well, and this was taken 10 years back. So it did pass the TBT requirements. Teehee!

“Throwback Thursday” is an Internet theme day observed every Thursday during which people share an old photograph of themselves via social networking sites and image-sharing communities, most notably through photo-sharing mobile app Instagram.

Miss kita Er...

Grabe, parang kailan lang. 

Isang taon ka na palang di namin nakakasama

Sa Biruan,

Sa Kainan,

Sa Lakwatsa at Inuman.

Kainis Er...

Andami mo pang pedeng gawin,

Andami mo pang pedeng pasayahin.

Pero choks lang Er...

Konsolasyon na naming lahat

Ang katotohanang

Di ka na nagdurusa

Sa iyong Karamdaman.

Salamat Er...

Sa halakhak at kwentuhan,

Sa masayang alaala,

Ng isang mabuting kaibigan.

For sure Er, 

Mas happy jan

Sa iyong Kinaroroonan.


BOIS' Happiness Campaign Continues

We were so moved by the people whom we have touched during the first run of our happiness campaign. Being included in the Happiness segment of KMJS gave us elation and it inspired us more to share.

This time, ACLC Gensan BOIS partnered with Dole Philippines Inc.  and Popular Merchandising in spreading happiness. Dole Philippines, being known for their generosity and willingness to help the society, provided several boxes of Dole Fruit Juices. These were distributed to our less fortunate brothers and sisters to quench their thirst even just for one moment.

Likewise, Popular Merchandising, a shoes & slippers distributor here in General Santos City provided several pairs of slippers to share.

It has been a looong and ankle-wearing day, but who cares ? The incommensurable kind of happiness this activity has brought us is worth all the sweat earned in a day. And more importantly, I believe my BOIS kids had strengthened their core values.We've found happiness!

BOIS Spreads Happiness

Happiness is something one can share
 even in your own little way.
And we believe that what is in our hands
 is not as important 
as what is in our hearts.

The 2nd year Business Office Information System (BOIS) Students of ACLC Gensan launched an outreach program dubbed as "BOIS Spreads Happiness" in August 2013. The idea is to reach out to as many people as much as possible with simple ways of cheering them up, however temporary. We have pooled together our resources,encouraged others to support our cause , packed some rice, noodles, canned goods and old clothes and went to the streets one day.

Incidentally,GMA TV 7's Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho Show was also running their happiness campaign and encouraged the public to share their video. We submitted a video of our first installment and carried on with the rest of our planned activies. And then, the video was aired! Extreme Happiness is what we felt when a portion of our video was chosen among thousands who have submitted.It made me a proud mentor!

Kapuso Mo, Jessica Sojo Facebook Account

Our project has just begun and yet, we have already received our bonus!
