January 4, 2009 - My Farewell Column

"From simple fists to Mexicutioner?"

 

“I will no longer waste my time relieving the past, instead I will spend it worrying about the future.” This sounds so ridiculous if you would consider it your new year’s resolution. What to think about is to consider sincere and honest resolutions which you can do really relative to the growth you want for yourself in the days ahead. This New Year I believe will bring unlimited prospects for development, and the opportunity to build resilience and innovation which will become hallmark of “our being an Igorot.” You may have established a fine tradition of excellence in many spheres and, in the year ahead, you may resolve to build on these achievements. I wish you that your dreams come true in this year 2009.
 A small boy of a remote village in Kibawe, Bukidnon had turned his boxing career a very promising one to satisfy his dreams of eliminating poverty within his family. Despite chaos in his homeland came an ambitious boy in the person of Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao globally known as the “Pac-Man,” The Mexicutioner,” “People’s Champ,” and the "Pambansang Kamao” all in his accent as one of the great boxers in the world.
He hardly began to sell pandesal perhaps to help his parents raise the family. Like others whose fervor is boxing, Manny exceeded all the difficulties had by all the boxers in the land; the vigorous requirements of the sports, the mental and physical exhaustion plus the daily dose of punches received by all boxers in the training and the real fights in the sand of the war. For periods of years, Manny had been consistently fighting for the country’s pride and honor and that his formula in boxing arena can never be found in a book of a favorable boxer.
Seeing Manny before, he has the moral fiber in the world of boxing. His various fights I witnessed in the television were that of global considerations. This was the reason why his boxing power had brought him to pedestal and wealth. In all of his ring appearance, perhaps his supremacy in putting down three Mexican boxers had turned him the “Mexicutioner.”
I am sure that with these steps Manny had shown, he would always be remembered in history. Not considering other’s personal judgment and perception over his personalities, Manny deserves fists of appreciation as the model of discipline and other values. 
Just this week, the 2008 End of the Year Boxing Award conducted by the ESPN Star Sports recognized our dear hero Manny Pacquiao in topping the “Champion of Champions” award with a rating of 90.75% over Malaysia’s squash queen Nicol David with a rating 9.25%. Same TV network, the ESPN All Sports Nation Team had disclosed global domination of this Filipino athlete to beat worldwide quality athletes in a different survey. This time, Manny garnered a mind blowing vote rate of 98.1% followed by Olympic sensation star in swimming Michael Phelps with 1.6%, sprinter Usain Bolt with 1.3%, NBA Superstar Kobe Bryant with 1.1%, and the golf tycoon Tiger Woods with 1.0%.
The year 2008 had brought honors to us amidst the nations’ crisis in economy and in politics and the global meltdown where Filipinos have displayed nationalism in this sense. While the national leadership of Arroyo’s administration had been the subject of protests and other political catastrophes, Manny’s fists somehow soothed the extreme call for the supposed political collapse.
Whatever is the challenge the year 2008 had left to us, I believe the room is still wide for contemplation. Like Manny in the boxing ring, let us not forget God’s presence. Manny’s strong example of bravery, fortitude, and Christian faith is the legacy clearly seen in him that which can be owned. From his simple fists, the qualities he has at hand were at par the best shots he displayed to challenge us in our daily endeavor.
This is my last regular meeting with you my friends in the air. How I wish to continue sharing with you the MIX BLOGS in the days ahead but definitely I cannot make it because of another call. I am indeed happy that because of this paper, I discovered my strengths and so I am continuing my passion for writing only in the form of BOOKS –from a newspaper to Publishing Company. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you in supporting MIX BLOGS and our very own paper, Mountain Province Exponent. You’re in my prayer guys and I’m hoping for same support and love. Happy happy happy new year!  (For comments, please forward it in my websites at www.lesiomhar.page.tl, and www.lesiomhar.multiply.com or in my CP number at 09185452554).

Galing! Boredom in your job? do something you've never done before. Take a break. Exercise. Hike. Go for an adventure. Do things unusual. Get bored doing something different. If after it you are still bored then better find another work but if after it you start appreciating your work again, then go back to it. Do I make sense?

As i was reading your article,Terraces Found in Baguio City, i remembered my experience when i was teaching in Manila. I happen to pass by a Sibika class and i heard the teacher asking the personal traits of an Igorot. The pupils answered "maitim, kulot ang buhok, pandak", etc. I was really shocked of what i heard. Aeta naman yata ang tinutukoy nila. hehehe When i entered their class the next day, i asked the pupils to describe again what an Igorot looks like. After they have enumerated the same descriptions as i have heard, i told them to look at me and compare me if i fit in to their descriptions. They told me i was different. Then and there, i told them that i am an Igorot. The pupils hardly believe that i am coz what they have learned from their Sibika book was far from what they were expecting to see in me. Some students even asked me if it were true that Igorots have tails.... Another, their book also states that Banaue Rice Terraces is found in Mountain Province! Though it was true when Cordillera was called Mountain Province. But that was long time ago.

What i'm concerned about is the reliability of books. Books are considered to be a reliable source of information; therefore, authors must verify first the information they are to write in their books. Maybe, the schools should also check the books thoroughly before buying.
