THE WORD: “BE QUICK TO LISTEN, SLOW TO SPEAK, AND SLOW TO GET ANGRY.” (James1:19)
COUNCIL SHOULD SPEAK IN CHABACANO, BECAUSE..
BECAUSE, they have a hard time expressing themselves in English, a lot here are strongly suggesting they better speak in chabacano to very well express themselves to their own constituents.
IN short, they should help their own people here to well understand them profusely in what they’re discussing, debating and deliberating all about.
“Deberas se pencing, ingles kete ingles sila lli,pero bobo man paka man inglis sila lli. Mali’, mali’ ila mga grammar. Ke makahuya’ canaton ki’,” c Bogs yaman pa sabe ya tamen.
“Pero’ tiene lli, no doubt, real gayot pencing,” aba’ taman papel tamen c Ador.
ZC HAS NO ARCHBISHOP, THE REASON WHY…
MI ciudad de Zamboanga has been without an archbishop for so long to this date.
I remember, accompanying the majority of our city officials led by then Mayor Celso Lobregat and VM Sar Iturralde, about two years ago, just to personally attend and witness our then Archbishop Valle( his first name slips my mind), to take over the archdiocese of Davao City.
FROM then on, ZC has had none of any that they can name as our next archbishop vice his eminence Valle.
“Poreso pencing, yaman buwsitan diunubes kta ki. Donde, donde lang mga crisis ta llega canaton,” c Bogs ya expresa su sentido, cay bien religiouso gat dao le..mira bos aura tampa lang gat bos Bogs. Spiritual mas importante Bogs.
C Ador, ya ace tamen su suggestion.
“Pencing, puede yo man nominate para diaton keda next archbishop ki?”
“Aber kien man dao debe kda aton archbishop ki?” c Bogs derecho yan challenge cun Ador.
“Sabe yayo kien pencing,” c Nado de alla alla, y bien chambarul ya contesta.
“Kien man aber?”
“Mio paninoy c Vic Liozo Jr. cay su prente bien ma silao gayot, kiere decir cun ansias ya gayot keda un pious leader ki, y bien qualified para kda un archbishop,” c Nado bien baliente ta recomenda.
Acaba gat kamo’ cun Vic Liozo, kamo yalang cuydao cun Director Vic. Otro se ta rabia, cay mas ma silao ya gayot takda su prente..
Akaba ya gayot kamo tres! Hinde’ gat yo canillo defende..
CAWIT IS ONE BRGY. THAT NEEDS HELP
I visited Brgy. Cawit last (Wednesday?), and had a tete-a-tete with its top barangay brass led by Kap Rey Modillas. Kap, at that time was with his no. one kagawad Beyong Molina when I happened to pay my rare visit in their place.
The said village is quite sentimental to me, cos I used to have a dear friend out there by the name of Nonong Cabrera— actually my childhood pal.
I just couldn’t find him there anymore. I wonder where he’s now. That good pal of mine has been so long rendered motionless due to a freak accident while on board a foreign cargo vessel. A steel object fell on him— hitting his spinal column that caused his disability for life, as I last saw him on a wheelchair.
Where is he now? Will someone from Brgy Cawit find him for me. He’s such a long lost friend of mine and I just miss him so much. Thanks for the memories Nong— wherever you are.
Back to its village. What I learned, Cawit is rich in fish products.
BUT, what bothers them is that there are big business establishments out there that aren’t paying their business taxes to the said barangay.
OUT of probably 5 to 6 huge industrial entities operating their business out there, only one or two pay their taxes religiously to the said barangay.
The rest, according to them, are paying their business taxes somewhere else.
Why can’t they pay their dues to the said barangay where their area of operation is actually located? That, we need to find out, for fairness & justice’ sake.
THE number one problem that besets Brgy. Cawit is the illegal drugs of Shabu, according to its brgy. officials.
“This is our main focus as to how we can address such a problem right now in our barangay,” Modillas said..
THEN, do it— of course with a strong political will, Kap…
Pencing will return with more interesting episodes. Abangann!
