by: Joefell Francis Balagosa
Don’t break above the neon lights, soon, the day reigns the night. From the sweet caress, this sadness frail. Stay with me till the morning….”

            They just met way back from high school. Both taking the same subject, and both are making the projects. Indeed, they were close friends. They just enjoyed each others company. During vacant times, they would sit at the old mahogany tree and laugh till they would realize that there’s nothing to be laughed at. And they’ll just caught themselves looking at each other-in loved and falling on. Romantic.
            When they reached college, the things that they used to do are still on their "to-do" list. It is maybe written on destiny’s page that they would have the same school. She’s to become a nurse and he’s to become an accountant. It is no doubt that after they graduated and had their works, he asked for marriage and she didn’t refuse, after all, she already knew who’s he-there is no reason to refuse.
            Like married couple, they would taste the sweetest first night. He grabbed her wrist and pushed her to wall. He kissed with deep desire and strong obsession. Then, she took off her thin white dress and threw it on floor. They began to enjoy the sweet night with passion and love. I can’t relate.
             Morning came, she found herself clad in the thinnest fabric of red. Alone. She looked around and glad to see that there he is standing by the window grasping the first morning as a husband. She felt light; she stood and hugged her husband. A pellucid picture of a strong relationship that bound to last.
            Every day, they would wake at five, he would pick up his polo and she would prepare a breakfast for two. They would share the breakfast and would go different ways for work.
When they would come back home, he would always have a surprise for her, it would be a bar of chocolate or a bunch of red roses. And they would dance under sweet melodies. Those became their habit. Day can’t be complete without those things.
It was just that day that she arrived home at six p.m and to her surprise her husband was not yet there. He always comes home early. She waited for almost five hours, still there’s no sign of her husband. She called her husband’s office, but the secretary said that he already left the office. She felt nervous. Again she dialed her number, still no one answered. She fell asleep as she waited for him. The next morning her husband was still not at home. She already felt the deep worry. She checked his office, the police station, her phone, the hospital, and the busy roads-still, there’s no sign of him. She thought that her husband already left her, one thing that frightened her most. She just can’t take it, what made her husband leave her? I don’t know either, knowing the story makes me dizzy. The last place where she could go back is to their home while in great anticipation that her husband would be there. Knowing that there’s no one home, she dragged all the things that she can see and cried out loud. How does it feel to lose someone whom you know you have loved, without even saying goodbye? It’s hard for her to know the real situation that she’s on to.
Days have pass and turned to months. Still, she wouldn’t have any phone calls from her husband. Every single day, she would dial her husband’s phone number. By this time, it would not even ring. She would go for his husband’s parents and asked if they have news about him. And she would get the same answer. Every afternoon while watching the orange sunset, she would sit on a wooden chair along their balcony and would ruminate her husband. Still have the strength to wait her husband. She would look if there will be car going towards their house. She would anticipate that her husband would just be at work and will go back home. Sad reality.
It was then that a black car entered their lot, the same car her husband had. She would not make herself believe that it’s her husband, she just don’t want to be hurt again.  A man knocked at her door, she opened it and asked what he wants. To her surprise, it was her long awaited husband. She can’t believe that he would come back. For almost months, he came back. They kissed each other. Her lips tasted the passion of yearn on his lips. She missed him so much that she hugged him tight like she would never let go of him. He gave her a red rose and a bar of chocolate. Just like the old times, they’d danced under love song. Then it turned to a moment that she wordlessly grabbed him towards their soft bed.
Their tired bodies gave up for the seemingly endless night.
She told him not to leave again.
“stay with me till the morning.”
By the day that the night broke by dawn. And the neon lights broke the dawn as the harsh sun soaked her eyes; she turned on to her side with smile. Upon seeing that her husband was not there, her smile faintly turned to mild. She hurriedly get dressed and checked where her husband is. But she did not saw her husband. She called to his husband’s parent and to her shock, he's not there. She called to his office, and she would listen to the same answer.
She again cried and sat on the dining. She saw a newspaper by the table.
She read…read…and read.
Until one line totally broke the solitude.
Then she screamed with a cry reading the headline that her husband died in a car accident few months ago. By that day, she received a call from the police. Her husband’s body was found inside the car under water.
After days, she found herself in the mental hospital and after months she was brought to hospital to bore a child.
There she is. My mother is sick! Maybe no chance to get well, she was sent again here for medication. I was here to visit her. Sometimes I just don’t know if she’s really my mom, it’s difficult because I was never given a chance to have a great time with her, she’s busy with someone else-even there’s no one.
Why I knew her story? A man told me.

By Raffy Berina

Fact: Text messaging makes communication easier and even faster. We use shortcuts o let the recipients receive the reply right away. Using shortcuts helps bridge gaps and most especially it is now used as medium in text messaging considering the fact that most Filipinos of this generation usecell phones. There are times that we misspell words (which is considered to be one of the disadvantages of using shortcuts). Now come to think of using “jejemon” way of texting as medium of messaging. I hope we could still use the alphabet properly and by that ime, words are not words anymore…so sad but it’s possible.
“Beep! 1 message received”. I was working with my visual aids when I received a message. I hurriedly opened the message expecting it was an important one. But to my surprise, I didn’t understand the content. It says: “3owz pf0hz2, KmUz+4?”, “What kind of message is this?” I asked myself and I was shocked to know that it only means “Hello po, kamusta?” they call it “jejemon ”.
Jejemon Letters
Imagine a “jejebook”, “jejename” and laugh like “jejeje” instead of “hehehe”. I think it would be more nose bleeding than the English language and will really make our lips, tongues and jaws go crazy. Supposing you are in a spelling class and your teacher ask you to spell the world “LOVE”? Will you answer? “L-4-V-Z”? How will you spell it or pronounce it either? Complicated. Well, this is not to discourage you to be a “jejemon” or a “jejebuster”. This is just to let you know that in communicating, there should be medium used by the encoder and the decoder of the message which is understood by both. If the person can’t understand your language, then use the language which can be understood. I can’t stop those “jejemons” from playing with their keypads but I can help stop myself from being one of them.
I don’t care about “jejemons” and “jejebusters” but I know this way of texting shall pass just like the “jologs” and “lingos” and it would be part of history in messaging—playing with characters and numbers. Some may consider it as a game, a game I don’t want to play, a history I don’t want to remember and a language which I find tongue twisting. I strongly believe that this is just a test on how strong the Filipino and English languages are. I am not a “jejebuster” nor a “jejemon”. But one thing I am certain: Nothing could ever replace English as my second language and Filipino as my mother tongue.

Initiation… A Revenge

By Love Joy Life Reveche

Initiation comes from the root word “initiate” which means to admit into the membership of an organization or group. This is usually done to persons who are neophytes. Talking about this, as we looked around the campus you can see students who seemed to be very busy seeking for the list of persons in a sheet of bond paper which they called “masters”.
Persons whom they don’t even know and that they would be obliged to spend a lot of time just to find them and have their signatures and time that supposedly intended for their next class or else for the rest of their classes. Isn’t it time consuming? Yes, whether they like it or not they will be forced to follow the tradition.
Is it really a must to have this kind of initiation? Last week when I was
passing the hallway along the canteen, a group of students asked me “Miga may kilala ka di sa ila hu?” he approached me giving a piece of bond paper. I read all the names and found out I haven’t known anyone so I told them “Sorry wala gid ko kilala” they seemed so disgusted…It’s obvious that they were spending so much to find those persons and even their classes were sacrificed. And what’s worst is their masters themselves are abusing them. Letting them do whatever they wanted them to and making them as an object of fun.
One set-up is when the master requested the neophyte to find an ant then kill and bury it, and the most climactic part is when the master wanted the neophyte to dramatize one scene of the movie “Crying Ladies”. The result is a picture of humiliating acts and even merciless killing of a living creature as their subject of the show.  See how appalling the acts are just to make them laugh and take some payback.
Now the question: What is really the purpose of initiation? Is it to discover talents of neophytes? Is it to build unity and camaraderie among neophytes, masters and the whole department? Or it’s just for fun, entertainment and revenge? Does it bring good benefits to the student body? I guess “wala gid”. They are just spending time for useless things. The time which is intended for their other concerns that is more relevant to their lives. Well, I guess revenge is the force that urges them (masters) to do such gone some acts. They are harsh because their previous masters have been harsh in dealing with them too. Now, try to think of this: if you are a master, would you want your fellows to plant grudges on you? Grudges that will be forever embedded in their hearts. As a result, there is nonstop revenge and it will remain as a cycle.

MODERNIZATION: tends to destroy humanity?

By Francis Balagosa

At this modern epoch, people have grown in a world where everything seems so different from the past and it is because of the changes that happened in our society. It affected our fashion, food, architecture, agriculture, medicine, and even our values. There is a delicate line between the positive and negative effects that this modernization has come up. We are thankful that it helped our way in medication and our industry, it improved our way of life-for totality-it made our life easier and convenient. , in fact, as what Theodore Roszak have said “High tech is embedded in the texture of industrial history; it needs to be planned into existence. Otherwise…it will become the same sort of jolting, humanly wasteful leap from one economic stage to another that produced the worst hardships of the first industrial revolution.”
Yet some of us today requester the existence of rapid changes that destroys humanity that occur in our society because of all the great things that it contributed lays the reality that we, Filipinos tend to forget the real values that suppose to  shroud  in our heart. The values that our ancestors have bequeathed on us were all put to shame because it was not given importance. They thought that their legacy of preserving the real Filipino values will continue for last and will help in the sustainability and improvement of our country. Indeed, those were all buried in a deep terrain.
Just a proof that you can notice in a corridor, a student would not even say, “Good morning or Good afternoon”, or while the teacher is going to dismiss the class, the students would be in hurry to leave the room when in fact the teacher haven’t yet dismissed the class. Not only students are seen in this usual scenarios, even teachers did not respect their fellow teachers-they’re fund of flinging harsh words against their co-teachers. Even a child would have the force to argue with his parent. These are just the results of too much exposure to the reality of the earthly modernization.
William Cobbett has said that machines are the product of the mind of man; and their existence distinguishes the civilized man from the savage. We have given the chance to discover new great things which aims to develop our ways of life; by this our technology lifted us from scarcity. Indeed, there is no reason to put our blame in modernization, in fact it is us who don’t know how to mange technology.
Remember that modernization does not tend to make destruction; it is just us who manages the factors that cause the phantoms that we are facing nowadays. We don’t have to blame the reality for having our youths who have “value-deteriorated disease” but us ourselves who haven’t seen the real lesson on the test. Having this era tests us to be more realistic and how much our concern in our Mother Nature. The pessimistic results of the rapid changes in our society only shows that we can make more out of our knowledge that will help in the progress not only of our selves but also for the economic growth of our country.
For  youths, the line between these things are meant to taught you how to manage and balance the gifts of the world-not to praise it, not to give the most importance to it, and not to abuse it but to take use of it as an element for making this world a better place. Because we are expected by Dr. Jose Rizal as the hope of our father land, we should not put him to a big shame-let us obliterate the statement that says, “It’s hard to make a difference especially with the kind of youth we have nowadays”, let us prove to them that even though we are at this age and more of our fellow youths have “value-deteriorated disease” we can still rise the banner that will lift our legacy as youths. We cannot erase in the pages of time the existence of the high-technology that we consider as a factor that deteriorates our aspects in life, the proper and right way to use this great things the modernization has given us would be the best thing that we can do.

Education Patrol!

By Jolibee Fernandez

It’s six AM on the clock. I was face down for my lesson plan when I momentarily paused myself hands down realizing that soon I will be graduating. At last! After my 10 long years of basic education from elementary to high school, here I am, a soon-to-be-college graduate. I was on cloud nine when suddenly my excitement was interupted as soon as my mother switched on the TV.
Now watching:
“Sa ulo ng mga nagbabagang balita! Basic Education sa bansa magiging 12 taon?”
I was on the process of reacting. Is the headline a wow or a boogsh? Is it for better or for worse? Let us see.
I know by heart that education is a big factor for me to be  successful , a major defense against minor trouble and an enormous treasure that I can have and live for. That is why I am so proud and providential that I have passed my basic years of education and soon to be a graduate of the same field which is also the Education itself. Fact: the Philippines have the shortest education cycle in the world, the reason why the government has tried certain revisions and laws in order to enhance the educational system. And one of such being proposed by  DepEd was to increase the years of basic education from 10 to 12. This includes 7 years of primary (Elementary) education and 5 years of secondary ( High School)—the K+12.
Wow. I was somehow amazed that they came up to this idea which would surely make changes to the history of educational system, only if successfully implemented. If then, I could picture out that the country will be less of discrimination and will produce vast professionals. This could also be of a great help in the economic status of the country and prove that though I am in the third world country, I can compete with the rest of the world. Oh sounds good!
But  boogsh! I wouldn’t stick on that early imagination and perception when in fact I know that a lot of schools and students suffer from lack of classrooms, chairs, teachers and facilities in which I suggest to be given a priority action. Now, how about if the said program will be implemented? What and where could be the ending of the school children? I guess the government should set first the former problem before they jump into another one. I truly know how it would make difference in the future of the youth and cause the country productive citizens by adding another 2 years in education system. But I can barely help asking myself that if those problems will arise due to lack of national budget, how will the government start such a heavy proposal when the tip of the iceberg couldn’t be even resolved? Such looks like a pretty penny and I guess this is a sign that the country will loan another billions of debt.
Excuse my French but I reckon that the country is not yet ready for this K+12. So I give my thumbs down for now and  patrol dismissed!

Kamsahamnida Korea

By Jammlyn Tambo-ong & Love Joy Life Reveche  
           As CHMSC’s population began to rise, we may often feel that there is a crowd of new faces of both students and faculties dominating the stairways, corridors and classrooms. But among those unfamiliar faces rise the most noticeable physical feature of a man with a Korean flag embroidered on the left side of his polo shirt.
       He is Kyoung-Min Kim, a native from Seoul, Korea who was born on July 7, 1969. He is married o You-Jung Kwon and has a 10-year old son named Yohan Kim. His family presently lives in Korea. He graduated at Hanyang University on 1988 with the course of Bachelor in Education major in Physical Education. He also finished one year vocational training on electronics on Dongyang Technical College.
He works in Sangyong Motor Company which is one of the biggest motor companies in Korea. Kyoung-Min Kim was sent by the Korean International Corporation Agency (KOICA) to work as a volunteer in our school.
        To come here may not be easy for him. Perhaps, he still strives to adjust himself with the Filipino culture, our lifestyle, weather and most especially our language. But his dedication and eagerness to learn had been a great help for him to be able to communicate with the people around. In fact, he already uses few of Tagalog and Hiligaynon words when he talks.
He arrived in CHMSC last June 30. With his few weeks of stay in our school, he is glad to describe that CHMSC is a big school whose students are polite and friendly. He feels welcome to see their bright faces every day.
          He will be staying in the office of the College of Industrial Technology for two years. His purpose is to share his knowledge about the modern approach of automotive technology as he will be willingly giving professional advice about motor vehicles by conducting series of lectures. Along with KOICA, Kyoung-Min also aims to expand the facilities used by the automotive and electronics technology students and faculties.
           CHMSC appreciates his generous purpose. Indeed, we are very thankful that there are those kind-hearted volunteers like Kyoung-Min Kim who are willing to extend their services for our school’s improvement. He says that he appreciates the bond between the Korean and Philippine government. And with their good plans and friendship, CHMSC will be able to see its better development in order to be competitive and meet the challenge of globalization.

The “Wheel” to Fulfill

 By Azela Batulan

It was the summer of 2010 when CHMSCians saw him. And since then, he became a head turner for he is a clear picture of a determined person, willing to acquire education despite all the odds.

He is Edson M. Leyte, a 19-year-old student from Purok Tumpok, Zone 15
. And as his wheelchair keeps on moving, his eagerness towards learning and earning a Bachelor Degree keeps him going and continue to flame. His very supportive mother and brother are his strength and inspiration in attaining all his goals.
Way back at the age of 7, Edson encountered an accident which greatly affects his spinal cord, that caused him to stay at his wheelchair. From then on, a new chapter in his life unfolds. Changes occurred that transformed him into a stronger and better person. Despite some difficulties he never stopped believing in his potentials. In fact, he had accomplished a lot because he has the will.
He finished his elementary years at Banago Elementary School and secondary at Doña Montserrat Lopez Memorial High School. After which, he enrolled at RTC TESDA, Talisay taking Consumer Electronics Servicing which paved his way to pass the NC II examination.
Furthermore, he ranked number 1 in the over-all result for enrollment of BSIT- Electronics Technology program for this qualifying school year. Aside from doing well in academics, he does excellently in drawing.
“Physical disabilities are not a hindrance for a person to realize his ambition and for him to be successful.” this said Edson.
He also added that hopefully, five years from now, he would see himself a successful individual in his chosen field and in the future to have either his own company, be it a small or large business to prop up his family’s needs.

Parting like it's the end of the world

 By Jolibee Fernandez

That was after watching 2012, the movie, when I curiously wondered how humanity will really come to an end.
                 Well, who can tell? Nobody knows, but probably not that much. However, I truly know that not everyone, not even I, is looking forward nor wishing such doomsday to turn out.
                 “If the bee disappeared of the surface of the globe, the man would only have four years of life left. No more animals, no more pollination, no more plants, no more man.” Albert Einstein once said this. Lately, the world is abuzz with the occurrence of different calamities. Wherever in this world, be it in moorland, lowland, local or international and even in the deserts, droughts and floods subsisted. How alarming! Land deformations, rising of sea levels, avalanches, blizzards, contractible diseases, earthquakes, cyclones, famines, floods, landslides, heat waves, storms, tornadoes, tsunami, volcanic eruptions, wildfires and climate change are a number of phenomena which we are now afraid of. Yes, the world is certainly different now! And here’s how the theories and concepts of 2012 emerged. But does it really makes sense thinking that these are all warning signs that the world will be thrown into utter chaos and violent upheaval soon? Or that these catastrophes are fuss on what the Bible foresees about the completion of creation?
What’s on your mind?
2012, this date has been much chattered to spread alarm and puzzlement of every people. From all those plotted presumptions and tales of end, such date has been marked and awaited to what is really supposed to happen. I was blown out knowing that there are already some cultures who already knew little about the true implication of 2012 and what it stands for yet again, this is accordance to their ancient beliefs.
Hopi: They have predicted the coming of the White Man and the existence of new age where all of this will come to an end and that humanity will enter into 5th world.
Mayans: They have the long count calendar that is coming to an end, according to them, we are about to enter the completion of creation.
Hindus: they follow the lunar calendar that foresees the end of Kali Yuga (end time of man) and rebirth of enlightened ones.
Incas: The Inca calendar says to end the year 2012 which for them is the turning over of life and alignment of the Earth, Sun and our galaxy soon.
Those are just main civilizations that points towards the prediction of the coming age. I personally have a natural feeling to fear these 2012 prophecies just like what my eyes have glimpsed of the movie 2012 especially that the said date is so close by after this year.  Of course, whoever perceives this will truly be alarmed into panic. Anything could happen and I know that the term Armageddon is possible. So possible that Jesus may return at any time or any certain events must take place prior to his comeback. One has really no control beyond of it for God only knows if this will happen and how. So instead of wasting time disputing to such unwanted event, I’d rather live life as if it’s my last day to which I could justly feel the essence of my existence in this world
Yes, the questions in my mind will remain unanswered not unless I’ve witnessed our earth so close to crashing (I do not hope so). Therefore, I don’t believe that humankind will vanish nor earth will burn up in the upcoming 2012 because of 3 reasons. (1) No one yet has ever made predictions except God (2) It was said that the world will end many times yet we’re still here kicking and (3) to see is to believe. What’s expected for sure is that more natural calamites will approach in the coming years due to disturbances in the balance of nature caused by our reckless exploitation of nature. And I assume that such a day will just pass like any ordinary day, God’s with me and with every earthlings, the details are just theory and some might be false already and I need not to be alarmed for nothing bad can ever happen!  

Speak Up

Hands On

The hard and software of modern technology can now be the media of converting realistic concerns, social issues and practical dilemmas into the context of patriotism and nationalism wherein everyone can withstand no limits of degree and status.               
                  A lot of things we could think about the disadvantages that modern technology brought and may bring, yet let us twirl down all those nega factors on to how we could be good and responsible members of our school and of course our society. To what extent can we associate ourselves with this knowledge driven world? To be vigilant and aware is a must. Technology’s impact to humanity is that the gap between a need and a want is borderless.
Awareness, vigilance, and being citizen journalist is already in us, it is an innate character that whenever stimuli seemingly happens it calls for a response. What we need is the will to extend what we can to the extent of our will and capacity in connecting stories and bridging information. It is technology that prompts in inculcating our strength of personality to become functional and active individuals.
There are 2.97 Million Filipinos accessing to Facebook as of year 2010, this figure comprises almost three-fourths of the total country’s population bringing it number six for top FB followers worldwide for the same year. This is a proof that everyone can now be part and parcel of societal development and somehow will lead to economic growth via internet participation. Social networking is becoming a lifestyle such that it became a witness and compilation of every significant event in our lives. Here in the campus, FB becomes one of our BFs. However, momentous events would not mean about bliss and gay moments, rather significant is something reminds us of what had had just happened that touches our ego not only of being a fellow but also of being a human, its nature.

Recently, unexpected flood occurred two days before the scheduled midterm examination [January 13-14] which was rescheduled to January 17-18. Apparently everyone took their participation by taking pictures and videos and it was ingenuity that reigned over fear and anxiety. During the 2010 polls, two prominent TV stations of the country showed how typical Filipinos can contribute in promoting goodwill and implementing change for the country. BOTO MO PATROL MO, Ako ang Simula of ABS-CBN channel 2 and YOUSCOOP of GMA channel 7, apart the rivalry the aim is so obvious, and it is building a better nation with individual participations through science and technology. Consequently, apart from high credits the matter is the truthfulness and reliability for Filipinos to get involve.
Wherever you stand, whatever you do, you can be a citizen journalist. Everyone can be a journalist. Every particular event that is capturing your attention is an equivalent of uploading information, a product of worth and concern which for Juan a better cause.
