Calgary Province of Alberta, Canada

Standard

My cousin lives in one of the Calgary apartments in Alberta, Canada. Canada adapts the same American tradition wherein when someone reach his/her 17 or 18 years of age, they can live independently. Calgary is the largest city in Alberta and is considered as the cleanest city in the world and the 5th best city to live in.Calgary is one of the highly recommended cities because of its rich culture, industry, education and environment.

If I were to live in Canada, I would like to live there. The only downside of the city is their weather. The summer there is really hot and the winters are extremely cold but the economy? It is booming and it is doing well in the job market. You can never go wrong in living in a city that have a lot to offer. Opportunities will be knocking at your doors. It is the richest province in Canada with the lowest unemployment rate. It is also one of three places in the world that has warming winds in the winter (Chinook). It is a native word for snow eater. It comes in over the Rocky Mountains and settles on the Calgary area warming the city.

During the Pre-Spanish Period in the Philippines there were 3 Different Social Classes in the Philippines.  The social classes describes land distribution in the Southern Philippines that is very unique from the pagan system.  It was the Muslim system that was introduced by the Indo-Malayan race.

  1. The Nobles – could own their own land and were free from tribute payment.
  2. The Serfs – entitled to cultivate certain lands, but were required to pay an annual fee of one-half of the yield of their crops to the Datu.
  3. The Slaves – simply serves the Datu or the Nobles and were owned by them. They can be sold or traded.

Accompanied by Mehha Ahuja, marketing manager of the Philippine Tourism Marketing office in India and the Department of Tourism—Manila, each of the TV show sent their own crew, with Neha Dixit, NDTV Lifestyle host and producer and Amrita Gandhi, host, for a month-long of filming the country’s unique destinations.

Ace Durano, secretary of Tourism, said, “As a testament to how varied our destinations are, we have the Indian media choosing to highlight other facets of the Philippines—as a unique shopping destination and a cost-effective travel haven for backpackers.”

Durano further explained that the Indian segment has primarily been geared for MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) market, but is now branching out into several other specialized tourism packages.

The Department of Tourism together with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) assisted NDTV in their tour of the country’s unique spots.

“We laud efforts of groups like the FDCP in their unrelentless support to promote our country’s teeming attractions. We are calling out to several other sectors in film, broadcast and other medium as well to join us in our aim to boost tourism to create more jobs and opportunities in our country,” added Durano.

From the world-renowned shoes of Marikina to Cebu’s historical spots and period architecture, the Tourism department took the crew to the country’s exclusive and unique spots.

“We make sure that the foreign media covers the range of our destinations from the well-known spots to the hidden nooks so the world can see each distinctive appeal of our diverse attractions,” said Eduardo Jarque Jr., Department of Tourism undersecretary for Tourism Planning and Promotions.

From the Marikina Riverbanks’ shoes, the crew also featured Miladay Jewels’ local cultured pearls, Frederick Peralta’s wedding gowns and various flea markets and high-end malls in the country.

Letter of Erap to son JV

Standard

Dear JV:

Kamusta na sa Amerika, anak? Mabagal ko’ng isinulat ang liham na ito
dahil alam kong mabagal ka ring magbasa.
Anak, gusto ko lamang
iparating na hindi na kami sa Malacanang nakatira ngayon. Nabasa kasi
ng mommy mo (si Loi), na kadalasan na ang mga aksidente ay nangyayari sa bahay kaya’t napagpasiyahan ko na lumipat na ng tirahan. Pero huwag kang mag-alala. Dinala ko naman ang karatula ng ating lumang address kaya maari mo pa rin akong sulatan sa dati nating address.
Mahirap na kasi ang pabago-bago. Alam mo naman na napakarami ko ng kinakabisado.

Maganda naman ang tirahan namin ngayon. Mayroon pa ngang built-in na washing machine. subali’t ng labhan ko yung damit ko, hindi na bumalik. kaya’t huwag kang bibili ng Saniware washing machine, anak. malakas pa naman sana ang ikot …
Maganda rin ang lagay ng panahon dito. dalawang beses lamang umulan last week. Yung una, mula lunes hanggang miyerkules,
yung pangalawa, mula huwebes hanggang linggo.

Tungkol nga pala sa coat na gusto mong ipadala namin… masyado raw
mabigat sabi ni Orly kung isasama yung mga butones. kaya pasensiya ka na kung tinanggal namin bago namin ipadala. Nilagay naman namin sa bulsa para hindi mawala.

Ay naku! Alam mo bang basang-basa kami nung martes(nung unang umulan last week)? Naiwan kasi nitong si Senator Tito yung susi ng BMW niya sa loob.E nakabukas pa naman ang sunroof ! Basang-basa tuloy ang interior! mabuti na lamang at gumanap na carnapper itong si Jinggoy nung araw kaya nabuksan niya ang kotse mula sa labas. Ang kaso mo, ng pumasok kami ni Jinggoy,naiwan si senator tito sa labas at hindi na naman niya mabuksan ang kotse! WALA na NAMAN sa kanya ang susi. &^&@%* mga artistang politiko talaga yan! Hindi gumagamit ng IQ… muntik na kaming malunod nuon ah!

Naalala ko tuloy yung pinsan kong nahulog sa tangke ng whiskey! Marami sana ang gustong sumagip pero pinilit pa ring niyang uminom at libre! Ayun,nalunod at pina-cremate —- anim na araw rin ang binilang bago natapos ang apoy… kaya pag namatay ako, hindi ako paki-cremate…masakit.

Siyanga pala, nanganak na si jackie kahapon.. Hindi ko pa alam kung
lalaki o babae kaya hindi ko masabi kong ikaw ay isa ng Uncle o Auntie.
Naku! napakalikot na bata… eager beaver ika nga!

Anak, hanggang dito na lamang muna ang aking liham… Marami pang pagbabago ang kailangan gawin sa Pilipinas. Ayun sa survey, 95% pa lang ng mga Filipino ang naging madasalin mula ng ako’y naging presidente! Kailangan 120%!!! Siyempre kailangan kasama ang mga OCW sa abroad, no?

Love,
PAPA ERAP

P.S. Papadalahan sana kita ng pera pero nakasarado na ang sobre…

Song of Maria Clara

Standard

Song Of Maria Clara
Sweet are the hours in one’s own Native Land,
All there is friendly o’er which the sun shines above;
Vivifying is the breeze that wafts over her fields;
Even death is gratifying and more tender is love.

Ardent kissed on a mother’s lips are at play,
On her lap, upon the infant child’s awakening,
The extended arms do seek her neck to entwine,
And the eyes at each other’s glimpse are smiling.

It is sweet to die in one’s own Native Land,
All there is friendly o’er which the sun shines above;
And deathly is the breeze for one without
A country, without a mother and without love.
