Just Grateful

Hi, everyone!

It has been a while, I mean five (5) years, since I have published my last post. I just want to say thank you to everyone who shared their time in reading, learning and reflecting from my posts. Apologies for not responding to all your concerns, but surely I get to read all of those.

Just few reminders, for those who are seeking medical care, please consult with your physician right away in order to address with proper management immediately. On the other hand, to those who want to get some of my ideas here, please have these included in the references, footnote, bibliography (or whatever you call it), so you would not be committing mistakes, or simply say “plagiarism”.

I have started this blog on 2008, which was 7 years ago and still it reaches some parts of the world, so again, thank you very much. I hope whatever good things you were able to take from this blog, can even be spread more to help others.

All the best for my readers and God bless you magnanimously!

Studying Medical Technology Beyond the Books

To my fellow schoolmates who still wears the uniform of Medical Technnology, I have here some pieces of advice to share with you. Other readers would also benefit from this if they used to. I just made it not to help you by myself but for you to help yourself by making decisions when you believe it right. Ito lang naman ang maitutulong ko senyo…Hindi ko naman sinasabing gawin niyo kung anung mga sinabi ko. Basta please take a moment to realize if you’re doing the right thing.
I have decided to include your names here for every topic that I will be discussing. But please consider it all. I advise you to read it all.

1. I think it’s for rvin I at rvin A, but generally it’s for all. They always say na lagi kayong pareho sa mga grades na nakukuha niyo. When it comes to grades, learning to manage your emotions is a must. Yes, let’s say that you spent all those times studying for all the subjects you’re taking and you prepared all you need just for earning the good result of the exam. And what happened is that you didn’t make it good enough. Here’s the deal. You can assess yourself if you have done your best reviewing for the exams. You cannot question the contents of the exam, but it’s the other way around. When you thought you gave not your very best, then, better study harder and further modify your study habits. When you thought you gave it with all effort, then accept what you got. Based on my experience, it is easy to accept that I have failed on one of my quizzes after studying hard, than to accept that I had it perfect when after all I cheated. I am not saying that you cheated on any exams ha, what I’m trying to say is that when you wanted and gave your best, there’s no way to have regrets. Saka huwag niyong didibdibin yun. Exams are just exams. Just accept all the possiblities. Sabi ko nga, sana mahandle niyo ng mabuti ang emotions niyo. Don’t make your emotions rule your world but rather you control yourself. Yes, malungkot nga kayo kasi you didn’t make it. But make it realize na wala namang magagawa kung malulungkot lang kayo lagi. Learn how to move on.

2. Whitey Karen and Gladys Long Hair. Wow! I would like to congratulate you for having it good when you started your college life from other schools or when you did good in our school. My second topic starts here. Being on the average. Averaging the best. It’s really hard to accept that after starting all with good grades, now your grades would have been fluctuating. I will never advice you to be glad or nice or take it easy because you can’t really avoid this thing. Like what I’ve said on no. 1, acceptance. You must learn to accept that life doesn’t go on with the flow of what you always do before. You’re not always on high. Getting the grades passed is a happy thing. I said to you a while ago that other studes from other schools were already glad if they had it 3.0. Yes, they would have to enjoy that because studying medical technology is not eating your favorite junkfoods. But I’m not saying that you have to limit your capacity to 3.0. Just give your best shot! And never aim for perfection but for giving the best you can give. Going back to the topic, I want you to realize that once your down, there’s no way but to go up and the same goes vice versa. It is better to start at the bottom before getting to the top. And being on the average is the best thing for me. Because you become flexible no matter what your grades are. The service of Medical Technology doesn’t depend on how high your grades are. For as long as you know you gave your best, and you passed the subject, it’s a big blessing. Anyway, if you’re running for scholarships, just accept the reality and make another option for other scholarships that you may still avail. Making a good record from your school doesn’t give the complete guarantee that you will become a very good Medical Technologist someday.

3. For Karen Chubbs and others. I want to tackle with you the “attitude”. Hehehe, I just want to thank you and I’m glad that you believe that after all attitude counts…hehehe…Hindi kailangan sa serbisyo ng profession ang mga cum laude, magna cum laude at lalo na ang summa cum laude lang, basta isa kang rehistrado at lisensyadong medtech at ginagawa mo ng maayos ang gawain mo at marunong kang makisama sa mga tao lalo na sa mga pasyente, mas kailangan ka dito. Hehehe. Continue what you believe to at mag-aral na lalo kayong mabuti. Mas mahirap habang natatapos ang sem. Mas mahirap ang second sem sa first sem pero huwag kayong panghinaan ng loob. Ma’am is doing the best for you kaya huwag ninyo sanang sayangin yon. Bibihira sa isang professor ang magbigay ng ganong attention sa mga studes niya. Alam ko hindi naman naghihintay si ma’am na suklian niyo siya o sila sa dept. pero sana patunayan niyo na lang sa sarili ninyo na karapat-dapat nga kayo sa ginagawa ni ma’am. After all, hindi naman para kay ma’am o sa school yon eh, para din yon sa inyo. Sa inyo talaga yon. Saka huwag na kayong sumuko. Ngayon pa ba kayo susuko kung kelan dalawang sems na lang kayo sa school at internship na kayo???  Linel etc., sana huwag kayong mawalan ng pag-asa na mag-aral ng mabuti kung hindi man kataasan ang nakukuha niyo sa sem o kung may revalida man kayong nakuha. Aral talaga kayo mabuti. Siguro kulang pa. Natutuwa ako sa section niyo kasi sa dami niyong yan na 20 kayo eh may unity kayo at you care for one another. At talagang lahat kayo wanted to get high grades as possible as you can.

After reading this, what you may think is that I am saying to you that you should do the right things. But no. I’m not advising you to follow what I’ve said above but rather I wanted you to analyze if you think you’re making it right. My aim is not to change you as a person but for you to mold your own by reflecting not just from what I’ve said but also from what you have observed. Hindi ko gustong matutunan niyo lahat ng magaganda at mabubuting bagay about sa pag-aaral dahil sa may naishare ako. Pero gusto kong matutunan niyo ang mga bagay na yon nang dahil sa naexperience niyo yun at napagtanto niyo na ganto o ganyan pala ang dapat gawin. Feel free to make me believe that I was wrong but I would recommend you na huwag niyo sanang patunayan saken na mali ako, pero magfocus kayo sa sarili nio at patunayan niyo sa sarili niyo na tama yung ginagawa niyo. It won’t help if you prove me that I was incorrect but it will give you a big satisfaction if you can prove to yourself that what you believe is right. I wish na sana lahat kayo ay sabay-sabay na ga-graduate on time. My support has already set for you guys. Ito lang naman ang maitutulong ko senyo at sa mga readers ng blog ko. Update me in the future! Kudos to my soon-to-be Colleagues!!!!

Ingat!

GOD BLESS!

Neneng NANAY…

Sa panahon natin ngayon, ang pagiging ina ay wala na yatang hinihinging edad. Dito sa lugar namin, hindi nakaiwas sa aking mga mata ang mga kabataang babae na nagdadalang tao o kaya ay may kasamang mga sanggol habang sila’y namamasyal o di kaya’y namimili sa palengke, ang mga batang iyon ay sigurado kong mga anak nila. Ang ilan sa kanila ay mga suki namin sa palengke, ang mga neneng musmos pa lamang at may bubot pang isipan patungkol sa mundong kanilang ginagalawan. Ang ilan ay dati kong mga kaklase noong elementary. Ano kaya ang dahilan ng mga pangyayaring ito? Dapat ba nating sabihing tama o mali ang pagiging ina nila? Paano ba natin dapat tingnan ang kalagayang ito ng ating mga kababaihan?

Bakit nga ba ganito na ngayon? Mahirap magsabi ng konkretong sagot sa tanong na ito sapagkat madaming bagay ang dapat isaalang-alang. Maaaring ang mga kabataang ito ay walang sapat na kaalaman sa pag-aasawa at pag-aanak. Hindi ko naman sinasabing kulang sila sa kaalaman ngunit maaaring iba ang kanilang pananaw sa mga bagay na ito. Siguro napilitan silang mag-asawa at magkaanak ng maaga. Siguro sa batang edad ay nabulag na sila sa pagmamahal. Siguro ay biktima sila ng mga pagkakamaling hindi dapat nila naranasan bilang isang bata. Siguro ay wala na silang magawa kundi ang tanggapin ang ganitong mga pangyayari. Maraming dahilan ang maaaring masabi ngunit ang bawat konkretong sagot na ating hinihingi ay mamumutawi lamang sa mga labi ng mismong NENENG NANAY na iyon.

Tama ba o mali? Para sa kanilang mga hilaw pa sa pagiging ina, ang lagi nilang iisipin ay tama ang nangyari sa kanila kung sadyang ginusto rin nila ito. Mali naman para sa mga kababaihang wala pa sa kanilang plano, kung sila ay ating tatanungin. At para naman sa ating mga taong nasa paligid nila, halu-halong sagot — TAMA at MALI. Ngunit sa tamang pag-iisip, siguro dapat ay hindi tayong mga nasa paligid nila ang dapat humusga sa ikatatama o ikamamali ng kanilang mga kinahinatnan. Ilagay na natin sa kawalan ang tanong na ito sapagkat wala tayo sa tamang posisyon para sagutin ang isang tanong na hindi naman tayo ang bida o biktima (kung paano mo man tawagin). Naririto tayo sa kanilang mga tabi upang damayan natin sila at tulungan sa pagpapaunlad ng kanilang mga papel bilang mga NENENG NANAY.

Paano natin ito titingnan? Dahil nga sa madaming dahilan at samu’t saring paliwanag ang hinihingi ng bawat tainga ukol dito, isa lang ang dapat nating gawin, iyon ay ang patuloy sa pagsuporta sa kanila. Hindi na natin sila dapat pang sisihin kung ito’y isang pagkakamali at lalong hindi naman din natin dapat ipahintulot sa ibang kababaihan ang maging ina ng maaga kung sa tingin ninyong tama lang ito. Hindi natin nararapart tingnan ang mga bagay na ito sa paraang pahusga ni sa paraan kung paano ito nangyari, bagkus, itutok natin ang ating mga sarili sa pagpapabuti ng kanilang mga kalagayan. Hindi mo na dapat tanungin o usisain ang isang NENENG NANAY na nanghihingi ng makakain ng kanyang anak kung bakit siya napunta sa ganong sitwasyon bago mo siya bigyan ng isang pirasong tinapay. Tanggalin na natin ang panghuhusga at kung anumang tanong ang lumabas sa ating mga isipan, maaari naman tayong tumahimk na lamang at irespeto sila bialng mga kapwa tao.

Matapos ang lahat, Mabuhay ka NENENG NANAY, dahil sa pagtataguyod mo sa iyong anak, dahil sa pagkakaroon mo ng malawak na isipan sa kabila ng kabubotan nito. Salamat dahil ginagawa mo ito para sa iyong anak. Salamat. Ito ang araw ninyo, araw na pinahahalagahan kayong lahat, kasama ng iba pang mga INA sa buong mundo. Maraming salamat at nandito kayo!

Maligayang araw mga NENENG NANAY!

Pagpalain tayo ng BUONG MAYKAPAL!

hehehehehe……

To laugh at once is signify happiness dwelling in your heart. It seems that you are so mesmerized about the things you sensed. Because of it, you are now energized with full power. And that is, the power of abiding joy!

Nowadays, we see many who are indulged with poverty, famine and everything that is all negative. They cannot buy their own food, they cannot solve their simple problems so they aren’t capable of solving bigger ones. Hence, what’s the real score? It is not always the law, I believe, but it is totally under the law, as I may say.

Quite puzzled? People say that there is no chance to make the world a better place for all because they simply lean on the fact that there is always the higher and the lower, the oppressed and the oppressor, the best and the worst and whatsoever words that they may account on it. I’m not saying to you that this law is unjust or anything. Another group of people tell us that life is how we make it.  That if we wish to be constantly happy, rich, blessed, awarded, rewarded and all other words that they may positively used, if we all apply this, according to them, we can be as contented as ever.

So what’s the deal?

Both laws are right. And then so what is the right perspective to be viewed? The wrong thing about this is the use of such laws dis-accordingly. Yes, we can say that there is no perfection in earth…but we can also say that we have the freewill to do and have anything. What leads us to the wrong way is the application of those ideas. At first, the first law was definitely right. It is so important to be experienced by us in order to see the differences. It will serve as a marker of how we gauge our success. But I’m not saying that if you are rich then you are successful neither that if someone is poor then he is totally mislead. If you see that this is the meaning of it, then you are on the wrong way.

If we think that we are poor then it must be our key to be more striving to be rich….and if the rich sees the poor and wants the simple way of living…then he could wish to…as long as he expects to have the happiness he wants. The second aphorism is just as true to us. We are the actually the masons of our own houses. I think I don’t have to explain it more because we all know this fact, though some do not recognize it. And yet we can get what we want if we are able to give time on it, to act on it and to sacrifice on it.

We should not use ideas on wrong place and time. We can be so successful, so happy, and so blessed having what we have on life though we are on the lower side and vice versa. Our status in the world is not the scale on how we measure success but it is how we see things beyond our naked eyes. Race is not important, economic status is not important. Even if you were born poor and being oppressed it doesn’t mean you will never seek happiness.  A person may have bankrupted but is still happy in the end.

Our naked eyes should see the naked meaning of life, the real life from within. So if you are so problematic, just think of those good memories and eventually when you smile, hehehehehehe, you’ll say, “It’s all in the mind”.

The Truth! improves

Let this post welcome all of you to the NEW NAME of the blog…..

I’m hoping that more readers could drop by this blog….Welcome and enjoy!!!!!

Influenza A (H1N1) afflicts 77

My first post about the virus has stated that there is no confirmed case found in the Philippines.  But after a span of less than two months, the news has broadcasted that there are 77 cases, of which some are mild cases.

Albeit the patients suffer mild cases, it is still a shocking and surprising fact that as of this time, the Philippines has the highest number of cases with Influenza A(H1N1).

I guess the reason behind the abrupt increase is the lack of gadgets that will detect persons with symptoms of the flu. Thermal scanners are not enough for all the flight passengers arriving on the airport every day.

School classes have been suspended and rescheduled especially in the colleges and universities. Not only foreign studes but also Filipinos are confirmed to have the virus! This brought very challenging to the DOH that they have to do contact tracing.

For the safety of all, let us be aware of the things we are using, eating, also the people we are dealing with in our every day life. Awareness and prevention are very important nowadays.

But after all, we must also mull over on the fact that no matter how hard and complicated the situation is, there is still GOD. The Lord that helps us all the time. All actions without prayers are just nothing but  a waste deed.

Let us see how this virus attacks against Christians, let’s see.

God Bless All!

May all of us be free from the virus!
