My H.S Alma Matter

Wow,..I felt so glad because I found my old alma matter during my high school days in face book. It's been three decades when we walked on the stage to shake hands and received our diploma to our school President and Vice President Mr. and Mrs Yap together with our school principal Mrs Tiongquico. A very memorable days that every graduates from previous years felt so emotionally happy to remember, and the most memorables days that never fade in our minds is the high school days...and yes I'm not going to forget my high school days in Dau Academy, Dau Mabalacat Pampanga Philippines.

Dau Academy or D.A is not really a well-known high school school campus in our place in Dau Mabalacat Pampanga since this is only a small school during my highschool days,.. but,..oh men you won't even expected that you might be become a talented and inteligent person after you've done and graduated to this school. Yes,..because all students are taught by a hard working, talented, intellegent, and dedicated teachers who mentor you to learned more and more until you become a knowledgeable one.

There are many students from this school who are very successful now a days..some of them are engineers, business man, managers, lawyers, teachers, and others are proudly to mentioned as government employees, politician, and OFW which are they called them as "New Heroes" now a days. Well,..that is how life after highschool days, every graduates needs to find his/her owned destiny, some are very successful in their career and some are not.

In my highschool batch, that is batch '81 some of them are very successful in their career, and most of them are living now in different countries such as U.S.A., London, Middle East, Spain, and etc. with a happy family of course. And those who are unfortunate to reached their dreams and goals in their life are still strieving to make a good living and bring their kids to school no matter what. I know they want their kids to be successful in their career once they grew up and have their owned family in the future, that is how Filipino culture are.

Looking back to high school days, in my personal experience high school life is very memorable one, there are lots of fun, lots of friends, lots of crushed, lots of trouble, and unexpected true love to be found. You will never forgot those days in your life except if you don't mind it when you are already in a new dimension of living. Most of my classmates and batchmates names and their faces are still in my mind others are still familiar with me after 30 yrs. ago when I graduates in high school at Dau Academy, Dau Mabalacat Pampanga.

That's why I am very happy when I learned that some of my batchmates and classmate planned and organized our first batch reunion this coming July 9, 2011. I proudly mentioned and gives thanks to our batch '81 reunion organizer Eng'r and CEO Delino Cubacub, Mr. Cedel Monzon, Ma. Luz Dizon, Alma Abisia, Carolina Santos and others who actively participate in this incoming events of recollection. I salute you classmates and batchmates for this initiatives, you're trully a motivator of our H.S batch and more power to all of you and God Blessed you all.

As I lay down in bed
Thinkin’ of somebody farway
Eyes wide open, missing her terribly
I want to reach out to her, but I can’t.
It’s her birthday today
but I am not there to greet her . . .
“A happy, happy birthday,
And may you have happier birthdays to come”.

Others may hugs and kiss you
On your birthday
But I know that
I couldn't hugs and kiss you anymore.
Just remember my dear
That sometime, I'm a part of your life

I am sad, coz I'm no longer
Exist in your humble heart
But deep in with me
You're still in my mind and in my heart
And that is forever.

As I look forward to your coming birthdays
I wish you want me
To spend time with you
And let me greet you
"A happy, happy birthday honey"

And as I look forward, hope you allow me
To be with you once again
And accept me as what I am before
And let our hearts entwined, To make our dreams realized.

The Caused Of Ruinning Our Natural Environment.

This is it, the things that I mentioned on my blog before, about illegal mining in my home town, the mining in Cabangahan, Cantilan Surigao Del Sur that starts last year 2010. In a short period of time Feb. 02, 2011  rains falls occurs and our entire barangay including the municipal town is full of rain water,..a "flash flood" that we normally heard from our weather forcasting department are seen all over the place. We're not only the one was affected by this calamities but also the four municipalities arround the province, Carrascal, Cantilan, Madrid, and Lanuza, we called it "CARCANMADLAN" not to mentioned of  all barrios of these municipalities which is heavilly affected.

These are the caused of ruinning our natural environment especially of illegal logging, illegal mining, and illegal quarrying. The worst things that might be the caused of this flash flood are the illegal logging and illegal mining. Cuttings of trees without any reservation would make the storms water flow very fast towards the slopes areas going down the low land,. and or it makes the creeks, the rivers fulls of water in a short period of time. If the creeks, and the river overflows the storms water goes anywhere in the fields which are normally the source of income of our farmers in the country side. All crops owned by our poor farmers would be devastated by these flash flood and only a little part would be spared from damages.

Not only our poor farmers are affected but also the whole neighborhood, because the flash flood might also be the caused of  damages that might collapse of our many infrastructure such as roads, bridges, and buildings. These infrastructures are vital source of the people to make money daily,. this is also the source of our farmers to market their crops from barrio side to town proper, we called it road to market. If these infrastructure are not passable due to heavy damages, our poor farmers, our workers and other users would hardly do and go around to make money daily..

How about the residential houses, does these would be spared by flash flood? oh boy I don't thinks so. Yes, maybe,.. if your home is built in a high elevation areas, but normally and usually we seen homes are built in low land elevation where they could easily go around to make money in the neighborhood. And that's it,..if it is built in low land elevation their homes are not exempted from flash flood, and they don't know what will happen next if the water will rises in its fullest the nerves, the scarry things would be felt on that moment not mentioning what would be to be ate next.

So,..this is it,...this is the occurrence if the illegal logging, illegal mining and illegal quarying continous that affects our mother nature...our life,..and our next generation...Soooooo,..pleeeeeaaaasse stop these illegal activities against the Natural Environment of our owned province,..Long Live CARCANMADLAN and their folks.
