Balak alang sa Biyernes Santo: TUAW

TUAW

Ning adlawo’ng Biyernes Santo, giingon nga natapos na ang tanan. Natapos tinuod ang pagpakatawo sa Binuhat nga nagpasakit sa kalbaryo apan wala pa gayud matapos ang gimbuhaton sa pagtisok ug tigbayon sa maayong buhat nga kapanaminan sa tanan.

Ubos ning adlaw sa pagbangotan, ubos ning makapagba’ng kainit sa adlaw sa pagpasakit, lamdagan unta kitang tanan. Hatagan kita ug kalantip sa salabutan sa pagtukbil sa tinuod nga mensahe sa kalbaryo:

Cebuano Short Story: NAUNHAN SI DODONG LAPOY

NAUNHAN SI DODONG LAPOY

Ang pulong bisita nagpasabot ug pagduaw, pagtambal sa kamingaw ug pag-amuma sa nagduhiraw. Ang binuhat nga gibisitahan daw gibayaw sa kapanganoran kon gugma maoy tumong ug katuyuan.

“Day, sayo kaayo ko’ng namisita, ikaw ang ipamahaw sa gugma ko’ng nagduhiraw.” ni Dodong Lapoy pa nga mahinangpon kaayo’ng namulong.

Balak Alang sa Semana Santa

SEMANA SANTA

Paghinumdom sa pagpasakit ug pagkabanhaw
Semana’ng ang pagkamapasayloon giuhaw,
Tininuod nga penitensiya ug indulhensiya,
Mga dagkong hagit kini sa konsiyensa,

Niining panahon sa kahaw-ang ug puasa,
Pagutom ug dili pagpatuyang dasigon ta,
Pagpanglupig, pagkamasalaypon iwahing ta,
Paghinulsol, sa kamakanunayon ipatigbabaw ta,

“MY FATHER: MY HERO”

“MY FATHER: MY HERO”
For the Father’s Day Celebration in Italy (March 19, 2013)
ACFIL Editorial – March 2013 Edition

A Father in the Filipino context and culture has a very significant role in the family. An old saying which I believe can provide us a clear image of a father says ―Ang ama ay haligi ng tahanan . It means that the father is the ―pillar of a home. What is a pillar? .. it is any upright, supporting part, that makes a building stand. Considering the father as a pillar would mean that he is the prominent supporter of a home. We consider him as someone who keeps our home standing strong and firm against the attack of any intruder. We also consider him as the provider of a home, the breadwinner.

Our very own culture has a very high regard to fathers of every family.

Kuwento Ng Isang Inday
by Jovelyn Bayubay Revilla

Minsan akong napatingin sa paglubog ng araw sa gitna ng sakahan. Habang ang mga ibon ay nagsiliparan na makahanap ng punong kahoy na madapuan. Ingay ng mga palaka, ang nagsilbing musika sa aking tainga, habang nagmuni-muni sa isang pangarap. Pangrap na sana balang araw, makaahon din kami sa kahirapan. Sa bawat hapyod ko sa sakit ng aking likod at kamay na naninigas ang putik sa balat. Damit na basahan; punit at may butas, araw-araw ito ang sout kong uniform, sa kada lublub ko sa putikan sa palayan. Minsan akong mapatingala sa kalangitan, sabay pahid sa nag-uunahang pawis sa mukha. At ang linyang namutawi sa aking labi at isipan:

“Balang araw matutupad din ang pangarap ko!”

Opinyon ni D_BystandeR: KINSA SI NUR MISUARI???

KINSA SI NUR MISUARI???
First Posted in angkahayag.blogspot.com

Nur Misuari is an intellectual figure who served as UP Professor during his younger days. I cannot understand the comments generated by this news item which seem to undermine his wisdom on matters that principally deal with our patriotic fervor especially at this time that lives of our brother Filipinos who are in Sabah are subjected to the worst kind of maltreatment unimaginable in civilized world.

ACFIL – TEAM BUILDERS ARE WOUNDED WARRIORS

TEAM BUILDERS ARE WOUNDED WARRIORS
By: MINDA TEVES

A group of 21 leaders coming from Padova, Turin and Milan gathered at Piazzale Susa, 1-Milan Italy last February 17,2013 to attend the ―TEAM BUILDING SEMINAR facilitated by Ms. Carol Medel-Anonuevo from Hamburg Germany the Deputy Director of UNESCO of Life-Long Learning.

The seminar was opened with a prayer and the Philippine National Anthem. The speaker distributed pieces of papers and asked all the participants to write down their expectations and different motivations why they have chosen to waste their precious time attending the seminar instead of staying at home and relax. Everybody was excited especially when the answers were read one by one. They even tried to guess who‘s written certain ideas. Well, there was one thing that came out as common to all that is ―CURIOSITY . We were actually curious on how to acquire knowledge to become an effective leader and at the same time bring out the common interest of everyone in the community and organize profitable and developmental activities.

ACFIL’s FINLIT SEMINAR

FINLIT SEMINAR
By: Gina dela Cruz

Yes! we made it again. The combined efforts of ACFIL and Pinoywise brought success to another Finlit seminar last 24th February 2013 at Via Morgari 14. We would like to thank our attendees who came on time in spite of the bad weather. The one day seminar includes the financial planning and possible investment for OFW’s and their families as well as helping OFWs in addressing barriers to reintegration.

After the seminar 3 attendees decided to start saving for their future by making their initial investment to SIDC cooperative.

The collaboration and complete attendance of the FCs in the spirit of ―kapit-Bisig‖ was not in vain because the participants responded positively to the challenge.

So friends out there don‘t miss the next seminar that you may become part of this worldwide struggle to make migration bring positive impact to the lives of many Filipinos!!!

Cebuano Short Story: NASAKPAN SI TORIO MAPAUBSANON

Ang pagpaubos maoy padayag sa kamapaubsanon, kaatbang kini sa pagkamapahitas-on, lulot nga mata ug panagway’ng daw magluya ang sagad makita nga mag-inusara.

“Torio, abi ko’g asa ka nahimutang, dia ka ra man diay dinhi sa asotiya. Halos kada buntag na man gud ka dinhi. Mura’g naghapahapa man gud ka?” sukna ni Bosyang nga pinaiknat ang kilay ngadto sa iyang bana.

“Ay dah, nagpaugnat ra ko sa akong kusog. Bisan ug padulong na ko sa kan-uman nga panuigon baskog pa intawon kaayo ko.” kalma nga tubag ni Torio.

Sabah Issue: Sino ang Panalo, Sino ang Talo? Si PNOY o Ang mga Pinoy?

Ang Tunay na Ama

Totoo na ang responsableng ama ay hindi kinunsente kung may kamalian mang nagawa ang isang anak.. Pero ang totoong ama ay hindi papayag na sasaktan ang kanyang mga anak kahit may kamalian man itong nagawa.. Simple logic, na hindi naisip ni PNOY…

At sa halip na makiusap at maghanap ng paraan para maresolba ang problema ay isinuko ni pnoy ang kanyang obligasyon bilang ama nating mga Pilipino. Sa halip ay ginatungan pa nya ang malaysia na saktan ang mga Tausog warriors.

Ang pulong mug-ot makita sa panagway’ng wala mahimuot, agtang pinakunot daw, dala kulismaot. Ang pagmug-ot, makita kon may gisapot.
