Jesus replied, “You do not realise now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

John 13:7


I received a phone call from a friend around 12:40 in the morning. She’s telling me that her Lola past away. She’s crying, she’s breaking down and she don’t know what to do, she’s alone in her apartment. I can feel the emptiness from her, the pain, the loneliness and the longingness from her Lola. She grew up with her Lola, that’s why I understand the feeling of losing someone you love.

All of us has a Lolo and Lola that spoiled and loved us more than the love we have from our parents, I don’t know the reason behind why grandparents are like that. They show the care more than the care we have from our parents. I know, not all grandparents are the same but all I know they love us more than the love they have for their own children.  I was once a Lola’s boy (Paternal side) and a Lolo’s boy (Maternal side). I have experienced the the love, the care that sometimes my parents misses to show it for me. I know I was loved…so much love from them.

The time I lost my Lolo, I also lost a father and I lost a friend. I understand why he is taken away from me, from us but no matter how I tried to understand I know it still hurt. I know everything in this world has an end but sometimes I am questioning the Lord “Why me?” of all the people in the world, why it happen to us? Those are the questions that I know the answers but I deny to understand and to accept.  It’s painful and it’s very hurting losing someone you love but God knows better than us. He knows what’s good for us and what’s not. God has the reason why He takes my Lolo from us. I might not know the reason but I know it’s best reason for all of us, and only God knows.

My friend, told me that when she’s there in here Lola’s house a week ago, She asked her Lola if she can remember her, her Lola replied “I don’t know you but I know I love you!” that’s the best word I ever wanted to hear from someone that I love, even memory fails to recognize but never the heart that loves.  Her Lola can’t recognize her anymore but the memory that she kept in heart never fades.

Life is so beautiful but life is too short to live long. We don’t know when our life ends. Now is the right time to say what you want to say to the one you love. Saying I love you to my Lolo is the most regret I’ve done for him coz I have told him that I love him so much that time when he was in his grave. We don’t know after today they can’t hear it anymore, we don’t know after today we can’t feel their warm embrace, we don’t know after today…we’ve lost them.

To my Lolo, I know he is in good hand now, I know how much I love you and how much you love me, unfortunately I never showed it the time when you are still alive. We will never forget you coz you’re always here inside of our heart.

Almost 12 years when I graduated from high school, I miss the fun, I miss those crying and laughing days, I miss all my classmates and batchmates and most of all I miss my friends, especially those who were there for me in times of trouble and loneliness (kabalo na sila kung sin-o sila).  12 years ago…,/p>

Last year, We have organized a reunion in Silay, it was a lot of fun and even few hours that we have spent together is worth to treasure for a lifetime. After that day we have agreed to organized another reunion, now in Boracay Island, someone in our batch volunteer to shoulder the foods and accommodation expenses. That sounds very interesting that someone in our batch is willing to give for the sake of friendship and for fun.

Lately, we have realized that we have to make an objective, we have to aim some goal for it’s not merely just for fun. There must be reason behind this reunion. Some of these reasons are as follows:

  • We want to organized formally our Batch, we are planning to register our Batch in SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) as a Non-profit Organization. Why we need to register? Technically and legally, we have to. Before we can ask some donations or solicit from other people we need some documents to proved our existence.
  • We will open an account for our Batch. Why there is a need for our Batch to open an account? We want to raise fund for future used. Who knows in the future we will have our Batch Foundation of which we will be extending help to our batchmates who are not capable of sending their children to school, financial help to start a new business and the like. Money matters should always be legal matter. Everything must be in black and white.
  • We will elect officers for our batch to manage the whole thing. Soon, our batch will be hosting the UNO-R Talisay Alumni Homecoming…when that time will come, everything will sail smoothly because we have established a strong foundation in our batch even before that time will come.

Now is the right time to show that we are united and still existing. Even though we are not in school anymore, even though we have our own lives now, but we can show and we can help in our own small ways by helping this activity to succeed.

Boracay reunion will be on the last weekend of May 2010 or first weekend of June 2010. We have a registration of Php 200 per head, that will be used for extra expenses during the reunion. Due date will be on May 16, 2010. Upon paying the registration fee you have confirmed that you will go with us in Boracay. For the meantime, we don’t have any account for our batch, so we will be using the BDO savings account of Ms. Joan Toque or you can visit her at the 2nd Floor of BDO Shopping Capitol Branch, North Drive, Bacolod City. Please keep your deposit slip as a proof of confirmation. For our batchmates in far areas and in abroad who are willing to give something for our batch…your help is very much appreciated. We accept also donations in kind. You can contact Rolecon (that’s me!!!) at 09053678799 or email me at arjhay_1726@yahoo.com. After the reunion expect that we will post a report(Financial report) in here.

Think of something big, dream big not just for today but also for tomorrow.

Please let her GO!

“This is supposed to be a comment of mine to a friend in Facebook but unfortunately masyadong mahaba, di na siya tuloy mapost dun sa FB so I rather post it in my own blog page. This is for Donnie A. De Los Santos of Talisay City Negros Occidental.”

Donz, cguro I am too late to react in here, cguro I am the last person nga masulat pa lang diri. I chose to shut up until I’ve talked Annie last night. I was there even before naging kamo, I was there sg naging kamo and sad to say I was NOT there sg natabo ni tanan. Donz, indi ko akig kag wala ko kainit sa imo, kay indi ako si annie, I am just a friend of annie and I am also your friend but let’s say I have REGRETS. Regrets nga ikaw lang kag ako ang nakabalo about it. I expect from annie nga ako ang una nga person nga makabalo but I was the last person…it’s okay with me, cguro ang indi lang okay sa akon kay friend ko si annie, nasakitan siya, kag nasakitan kami sg natabo. I know nga there are reasons behind ngaa nahimo mo ni sa iya, wala ko subong gaconcludebut based sg ginhambal ni annie sa akon last night…daw ikaw gid ang may sala…I know, nga wala ka intention nga sakiton siya pero nasakitan siya…cguro ang pangayuon lang namon subong sa imo…LET HER GO!!! Forget her…hayaan mo na lang siya….please wag mo na siyang saktan…LET HER MOVED ON…I know nga indi ko ni dapat paghimuon nga ma beg ko sa imo to set here free pero kinahanglan gid coz I saw her crying…I saw her breaking down…I saw her nga gakasakitan…Please let her GO!!!
