My Freshman Series (Chapter 17... Singing is My Passion)


==================================================

"Ahhhh... Ang init ng kamay mo Gel, Sige higpitan mo pa. Grabe sinasakal mo na yan ah." ungol lang nito.

"Siyempre Mike para umiyak agad." biro ko pa.

"GUsto mo batehin din kita?" offer pa nito.

"Ikaw? Kaya mo ba?" tanong ko sa kanya.

"Di ko alam. Siguro naman walang masama. Ikaw nga hawak mo yan e." sabi nito sakin.

Gusto ko sanang sabihin, siyempre bading ako e.

Nang hinawakan niya ang ari ko ay para siyang napaso. Agad niyang binitawan.

"Ang init ng ari mo."

Napatawa ako ng mahina.

"Di mo kaya no?" tukso ko sa kanya.

"Di naman sa ganun. Kakaiba lang ang pakiramdam na ari ng iba ang hawak ko." mukha pa itong naguguluhan.

"Naku, wag mo nang pilitin kung ayaw mo." sabay ngiti ko sa kanya.

"Okay lang sayo? Di ba unfair?" medyo nalungkot o parang naguilty na sabi nito.

"Naku okay lang." sabi ko. Tutal wala naman sa isip ko na magpabate ako sa kanya. Mas okay na yung siya ang binabate ko. Sana nga isubo ko na e.

Matagal ko na siyang binabate pero di pa rin siya nilalabasan.

"Antagal mo ha?" biro ko.

"Ganun ba? Sensya na ha? Di lang siguro ako sanay na iba ang humahawak at nagbabate niyan."

"So itigil ko na lang?"

"Ano ako gago? Di no. Sarap nga e. Nakakapanibago lang talaga. SIge lang. Baka mamaya e lalabasan din yan."

Medyo nakakapagod na ang ginagawa kong pagtaas baba ng kamay ko sa ari niya.

Hindi ko na hinintay pa, agad kong inapuhap ang mga utong niya. Napaungol siya.

"Mmmmmffff.... shit, sarap."

Iyon na ang hudyat ko, di siya makakapagpigil nito.

Nilapirot ko ang utong niya. Paminsan-minsan ay mahigpit na hinihimas. Napapikit na siya sa ginagawa ko. Agad agad ay inilapit ko ang bibig ko sa utong niya. Walang pigil na sinipsip ito.

"Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!" malakas na pag-ungol nito. Hinila pa ang ulo ko palapit sa dibdib niya. Mas lalong dumiin ang bibig ko sa dibdib niya. Mas lalo kong naamoy ang amoy-lalaki nito.

"Gel.... Sarap niyan."

"Okay lang ba?" sabi ko.

"Okay na okay!" sabi pa nito.

Siya na humila ng ulo ko papunta sa kabilang utong niya.

"Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!" Ungol pa uli nito nang masipsip ko ang kabila niyang utong.

Nagulat na lang ako nang biglang may mainit na pumulandit sa kamay ko. Bigla kong tinigil ang pagsipsip sa utong niya. Tiningnan ko ang kamay ko. Nilabasan na siya.

Napatawa siya. Kumuha ng panyo sa bulsa niya at pinunas sa kamay ko.

"Akin na yan." sabay kuha ng kamay ko at pinunasan ang kamay ko.

"Di ka man lang nag-warn na lalabasan ka na." biro ko sa kanya.

"E paano pa ako makakapagsabi e ambilis nga e. Di na ako makapagsalita sa sarap. Anggaling mo pala. Di kaya bakla ka?" sabi pa nito.

"Huh? Tanga! Ginawa ko lang iyon para malabasan ka na. Antagal mo e. Nangangalay na kamay ko. Di nga ngalay e parang namanhid na." sabay tawa ko pa.

Tumawa na rin siya. Nag-ayos kami ng suot at nag-ensayo ng saglit. Paminsan-minsan ay pinapasok niya ang usapan na round 2 daw. Pero di naman natutuloy.

Narinig namin na may pumito. Sabi ni Mike e pinababalik na kami sa Choir room.

"Sana makapasok ka. Gusto kita palaging kasama e. Para may gagawa sa akin noon." biro pa nito habang pabalik kami sa Choir Room.

Sayang nga lang at hindi ko siya naisubo. Iyon pa naman ang balak ko. Magaling pa naman akong sumubo... kumanta. Makakapasa din ako nito sa choir.

After all...

Singing is my passion.

My Freshman Series (Chapter 16... First Encounter in School)


Uy... hinihintay nila to... hahaha

===================================================

Mabilis na nagdaan ang panahon. October na. Bago magbakasyon para sa Undas ay nagkakaroon ng mga audition para sa iba't ibang organizations.

Si James ay nag-tryout sa chess club. Matalino naman kasi siya. Magaling siya sa problem solving. Si Rod ay nag-tryout sa Math Club para sa Damath at Math Olympiad.

"Ikaw Gel, saan ka mag-tatryout?" tanong ni Rod.

"Di ko nga alam e. Parang wala naman kasi akong talent."

"Hahaha. Ikaw walang talent? Para mo nang sinabing bobo kami. E ang galing-galing mo nga mag-drawing e."

"E bakit? May organization ba para sa mga artists?" balik kong tanong sa kanya.

"Kunsabagay."

"Pero di ba magaling ka rin kumanta?" sabad ni James.

Natawa ako ng palihim. Anong kanta ba ang tinutukoy niya? Kanta gamit ang nota o yung isa pang nota? [Sa mga hindi alam kung ano ang isa pang "nota", research niyo na lang] Kasi pareho namang magaling ako dun e.

"Hindi naman sa magaling, marunong lang." pa-humble effect ko pa.

"Palagi mong script yan. Sasabihin mo marunong ka lang at hindi magaling pero parang walang pwedeng ipantapat sa iyo dito." sabay gulo ni James sa buhok ko.

"E di sumali ka na lang sa choir ng school." sabay pitik ni Rod ng daliri niya, nakaisip ng ideya agad.

Napatigil kami ni James sa harutan.

"Oo nga. Mag-choir ka na lang." sang-ayon ni James.

Naisip ko, pwede din. Kasi pag choir e hindi yun solo. Kaya hindi pangalan ko ang makikita sakaling manalo kami kundi pangalan ng grupo. Pwede.

"Sige. Tama yun. May idea ka ba kung kelan o anong oras ang audition nila?"

"Sabi ni Stacey (May crush kay Rod) mamaya daw alas-singko e." si Rod.

"Ano? Mamaya na? OA naman." sabi ko.

"E bakit? Alam ba nila na mag-aaudition ka at hindi ka ready?" OA na sagot ni Rod.

"Okay lang yan. Kumanta ka lang ng kahit ano." si James sabay akbay sa akin.

"Wala akong alam na kantang pang-audition e." sabi ko.

"E di yung theme song nating dalawa?" biro pa nito.

Theme song? Kami na ba? Di ko alam. Hahaha, naisip ko lang.

"Ganun? Sana kung andun ka para masarap kantahin." double-meaning kong sabi.

"Alangan naman pati ako mag-audition." tutol nito agad.

"Sige na nga. Iyon na lang." sabi ko.

Dumating ang alas-singko ng hapon. Pumunta ako sa Choir Room. Bakit kasi sa choir room pa ang audition, tuloy andaming nakakakita kapag kakanta ako. Nasa choir room si Mrs. Aungon, yung choir director, si Mrs. Alba - assistant choir director/voice coach, at si Mr. Lim - Coreography, expression, blocking at performance coach. Andun din ang mga kilala kong mga miyembro ng choir dahil palagi ko silang nakikita kapag nagpeperform ang choir. Andun din ang mga kabadong tulad ko na mag-aaudition.

Agad na nagpalista ang mga sasali. Kasama na ako doon.

"Sa mga first years, good luck sa inyo. I hope na makapasok kayo dahil by next year may NAMCYA (National Music Competition for Young Artists), isang patimpalak para sa mga solo and group artists. Kung papalarin kayong makapasok, kasama kayo at kapag nakapasok tayo sa national level ay makakasama kayo sa Manila para sa finals. So good luck!" pagbati pa ni Mrs. Aungon.

Tumayo si Mr. Lim.

"Para sa lahat, may ibibigay kaming piyesa sa inyo. May iaassign na choir member na magtuturo sa inyo ng tono niyo. I-practice niyo ito sa loob ng isang oras." panimula nito.

"Lahat kayo ay dapat alam niyo na kung kayo ay soprano, alto, tenor o bass. Kaya ang mga soprano applicants at choir members, pumunta kayo sa isang corner doon at doon kayo maghanap ng partner. Mga alto, doon sa stage. Tenor, sa quadrangle. Bass, sa walkway sa labas. Pag nakahanap na kayo ng partner, magpractice kayo at bumalik pagkatapos ng isang oras. Go!"

Sabay sigaw nito na para bang may karera.

Agad na pumunta ako sa quadrangle dahil tenor ang inaapplyan ko. Alam ko naman kasi na hindi mababa ang boses ko. Kung pwede nga lang soprano e papatulan ko. Kaso syempre, discreet ako ngayon.

Mga sampung applicants ang pumunta sa quadrangle. Agad kaming nilapitan ng walong members. May dalawang member na tig-dalawang partner na applicant. Lumapit sa akin ang isang member na sa palagay ko ay second year pa lang.

"Hi! Tenor?" bungad nito. Sabay lahad ng kamay niya para makipagkamay.

Tumango ako at ngumiti. Sabay hawak sa kamay niya. Mariin niyang hinawakan ito at nakipagkamay. Ngumiti uli ito. (May similarity siya sa picture sa taas)

"Mike pala." pagpapakilala niya.

"Gel."

"So, may experience ka na ba sa choir?" panimula nito.

Umiling ako.

"Ahhh. So virgin ka pa." sabi pa nito.

Kumunot ang noo ko. "Excuse me?" sabi ko.

"I mean Choir virgin" pag-tutuwid niya.

"Ah." sabay tango-tango ko pa.

"So, nakita mo na ang piyesa natin?"

"Oo. Simple lang pala e. 'Ikaw' lang pala." sabi ko. Ikaw, yung kanta ni Regine Velasquez kasi inarrange para sa choir.

"Hahahaha. Akala mo lang e madali yan. Hindi yan melody. For tenor ang kakantahin natin." sabay inaya niya ako paupo sa isang bench.

Tumabi siya sa akin at hinawakan ang piyesa. Dahil nakahawak siya sa piyesa e nagkadikit ang mga braso namin. Doon ko naamoy ang kaniyang pabango. Hmmm. Lalaking lalaki. Bigla akong nag-init.

"Ganito yan.." Sabay turo ng mga nota sa piyesa. "Nakita mo yung mga nasa ibabang staff, itong bass staff? Iyong mga nota sa taas, iyan yung atin. Kapag may nakita kang isang nota lang at hindi blended sa ibang nota, ibig sabihin..."

"Unison tayo ng bass." pagtatapos ko.

"Tama. Magaling ka pala e. Marunong ka ba magbasa ng nota?" tanong nito.

Napangiti ako nang di ko sinasadya.

Ang nasa isip ko kasi magbasa (as in wet) at nota (as in yung ari). Siyempre ilang beses na ako nakapagbasa ng nota.

"Uy, bakit naman nakangiti ka. ALam ko na. Bastos ang nasa isip mo no?" sabi agad nito.

Naku, Lagot! Buking ako.

"Wag kang mahiya. Okay lang yun. Ganyan din naman palagi takbo ng isip ko. Mahirap talaga maging mahilig pero walang mapagpapalabasan." sabi nito.

"So wala kang girlfriend?" sabi ko. Pero sa isip ko, Whew!, buti na lang.

"Wala nga e. Kaya nga eto, puro bati na lang ako. Malibog pa naman ako sobra. Siguro mga tatlong beses ako nagbabate bawat araw." casual na pagkukuwento nito.

"Grabe. Tatlong beses? Ibig sabihin kahit hanggang dito sa school e nagbabate ka?" gulat kong sabi.

"Oo naman. May mga lugar naman na walang tao e. Kaya pwede ako magparaos di ba?" seryoso lang siyang nagkukuwento.

"Talaga? Saan naman?" curious ko lang na tanong.

"Hahaha. Malibog ka rin talaga ano?" sabi pa nito.

"Syempre. Lalaki tayo e. Di talaga makokontrol ang libog. Natural na sa atin yun." sagot ko naman.

"Magkakasundo tayo sa sinabi mo." sabay akbay nito sa akin. "Ano? Gusto mo ba sabay tayo palabas?" pag-aalok pa nito.

Naisip ko, GO!!!, kasi pag hindi ako sumama, sabihin niya bading ako. Saka, gusto ko naman siya makitang nakahubad at yung alaga niya. Tutal di naman kami magsi-sex. Paraos lang naman. Walang masama.

"Sige. Kanina pa rin ako libog e." sabi ko sa kanya.

Agad kaming tumayo. Nagpaalam siya sa ibang kasamahan niya.

"Mga tol, hanap kami ibang lugar. Maingay dito e." paalam pa niya.

Walang kaalam-alam ang mga kasama niya. Tumango lang ang mga ito.

Agad kaming naglakas ng mabilis paikot sa quadrangle. Nilagpasan namin ang English building. Pumunta kami sa bagong PE building na ginagawa pa lang. Tama nga siya, walang tao doon kapag ganitong oras.

Pumasok kami sa isang ginagawang kuwarto. Wala pang pinto o sahig ito. May pader lang pero lupa pa rin ang sahig.

Sobrang layo nito sa labasan kaya kapag may pumunta e makikita agad namin at makakapag-ayos na kami bago pa kami makita.

Agad na hinubad namin ang polo namin at sinampay sa pader. Sumandal kami sa sementadong pader at agad na binuksan ang mga zipper namin. Walang ilangan na nilabas namin ang mga titi namin sa briefs namin at sinimulan nang magpatigas.

"Aaahhh..." mahinang ungol ni Mike.

Kahit na nagpapatigas ako ng akin e nakatitig ako sa ari at mukha niya. Napapapikit-pikit siya sa sarap. Lumiliyad-liyad pa siya.

Paminsan-minsan ay lumilingon siya kaya balik ako sa pagpapasarap sa sarili ko.

"Aaaahhh..." nagsasabay na mga ungol namin.

"Mahirap talaga magpalabas ng nakatayo no?" sabi pa niya.

"Oo nga e." sang-ayon ko.

Bumalik na siya sa pagsasalsal ng sarili niya. Ipinapasok niya kamay niya sa t-shirt niya at hinihimas ang dibdib niya. Nasusulyapan ko na ang maganda niyang katawan.

"Gusto mo ba ako mag-jakol sa'yo?" Di ko napigilang sabihin.

Napamulat siya at napatingin sa akin.

"Kasi alam ko mas masarap kapag iba gumawa e. Kesa ikaw lang gumagawa sa sarili mo." pagtatanggol ko sa biglaang nasabi ko.

Tumingin siya sa akin ng matagal. Nag-isip.

"Sige." sabay ngiti pa nito.

Agad kong hinawakan ang ari niya. Ang init.

"Aaaahhhh... Grabe ang kamay mo ang init naman. Sarap pala." ungol pa nito.

RESUME Boo-boos

Resume:



1) Put in your resume the things that you know about, not what you wish to know about. I have an experience interviewing an IT applicant. He put on his resume that he knows PHP (programming), but later on I found out that he was just studying it... on his own... using books he bought... dated 5 years ago.

2) Treat your resume seriously. We were looking for Thai speaking Customer Service Representatives. Of course we used the online job sites. We pulled out the resumes of those who indicated in their skills that they can speak Thai. You know resume search credits are not cheap so we have to be very careful of pulling our resumes there. We called one applicant and she said on her resume that she can speak Thai, Mandarin, English and French. Impressive right? We asked her if she want to apply as customer service representative for Thais. She said yes. She asked for the salary, we said 40,000 to 60,000 pesos. She immediately said yes. We asked her anyway - since we cannot test her Thai skills - how did she learn how to speak Thai, she said, "No, I don't know how to speak Thai." We said that it's on her resume. She said, "NO, THAT'S JOKE ONLY." Then blurted out an evil laugh. We immediately hang up on her and blacklisted her. Worst applicant ever!

3) If on that skill, you score 1, 2 or 3 on the scale of 1-10, don't include it. A lot of people put things on their resume that are not totally true. Most people would say that they know how to speak French, German, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, etc. when they can only say Si. Ya. Annyeong, Hai, Ni Hao which are basically Yes/No or Hi. Whoever told them that this is a skill, needs to be shot in Luneta. A wake up call, 70% of Filipinos know these as well.

4) Be ready to be tested on the skills written on your resume, because 95% chance that you will be tested.

5) Never submit a Bio-data. Do I need to say this? Yes! Believe it or not 5% of applicants bring in Bio-data. It's not that I discriminate them because bio-data costs 1 peso compared to resume printing starting from 3 pesos, but the point that giving a bio-data does not show the skills that you have. It may show almost 100% about your personal information, but skill-wise, it doesn't Put some effort on writing a resume.

6) Never copy and paste the resume from the internet. Elementary much but yes I have to say this. Some people make a resume by copying from the internet and editing some things. One time I have to laugh in one resume because the name, address and birth day was not revised, showing an American Address and a 40 year old birth day of an applicant who is a fresh graduate with a picture showing a guy, when the name was a girl and a boy in his twenties.

7) Never make a resume if you don't know how to. Yes guys, please try to seek help from those who know how to. There are some resumes who are obviously erroneous. A lot of typographical error. A lot of formatting errors. And the information are kinda badly thought.

8) Appropriate pictures please. Whew! What's wrong with these people? One applicant had his picture taken with a background of a toilet bowl and a guy taking a leak behind. One person sent a half-body picture, naked, posing as a macho dancer and the body obviously cropped from someone else and used Adobe to paste the head on to it. My goodness! There are applicants who put pictures with angles used for Facebook - camera on top, below and with a V fingers. One person put a picture with 2 of his friends at the back. One applicant scanned then picture and pasted the whole page with his picture only 1/32 of the whole page scanned. Some are even wearing their house clothes, haven't brushed their hair or even washed their faces. One guy even put his high school picture even if he is already 40+ years old. Believe it or not, some people put cartoon characters on their resume picture.

9) Submit an original resume, not photocopied. If in case you really cannot afford to reprint your resume, make the decency of photocopying your resume clearly. Don't use 25 centavo photocopy using newsprint.

10) Put a picture on your resume as much as possible. Although not required but at least it will be of advantage for you. That would really exude professionalism.

Hope this helps you guys!

Love you all!

INTERVIEW Bloopers up next!

Thoughts (October 11, 2011) Employment


I just would like to put this post about employment. I hope you'll find this helpful. This is what I have learned over the years.

We all know that most Filipinos complain that there is not enough jobs in the Philippines and always complain about the unemployment rate. What do we always think? We always believe that it is the fault of the government that's why there are not much jobs in the Philippines. However, with my several years of experience in recruitment, I have found out that that is not 100% correct.

Let me take it from the start.

When I was 18 years old, I had my first job, coming from Iloilo to Manila and work, I immediately applied for the position of a call center agent with one of the best and pioneer call centers in the Philippines. One day process only and I was hired within the day. I stayed there for almost a year and I have only submitted my NBI clearance after 7 months being employed there.

Now, many of you would ask, why is it that I have not submitted my TIN, SSS number, PAG-IBIG number, Philhealth number, etc. I would answer, I didn't know. Our Human Resource didn't even inform me that I need those. There is no list of requirements, considering that this is a big company. Later have I known that I have been deducted my tax, SSS, etc. without them being remitted. I verified this and I have no contribution for almost a year that I have been employed.

Now, who do you think is at fault here: (1) Me, because I did not check but I didn't know. (2) the government, I don't know, (3) The company, of course, they did not ask me these numbers.

Right now, I am still in the process of debating with that company for my contributions for almost a year that was not remitted.

Second company, I was employed as a copywriter. Not for news or books but for an immigration consultancy. I was employed there and every 3 months or less, I was promoted. For less than 2 years that I stayed there, I was promoted 6 times. Until such a time that I became a senior immigration documentation officer.

Being in an immigration consultancy, I have come to know what are the jobs that usually say that they don't have a job here in the Philippines. Let's say out of 100 applicants each week, 60% of those are nurses, both registered and not, 20% HRM/Tourism graduates, 8%teachers, 8%Business courses (Accounting, Bus. Ad, Bus. Mgt., Secretarial, Marketing, Finance, etc.), 7% IT graduates, remaining 3% (other courses).

As you can see, these are the applicants that we have that applied because they said that it is hard for them to look for a job. But my question is, did they just knew about this after they graduated? Did no one inform them that this is the current status of employment in the country? Don't schools (High Schools and College Schools) have a career advisor to tell them: "Hey, it's hard to look for a job if you will have this course?" or "Don't you know that this course is not really profitable at this time?"

When I was in college we took an exam which would allow us to know which course we would certainly excel in. This would really maximize our potential in a career we should be in. However, as I remember, we indeed were not informed of the current status of employment as to what skills have the hardest possibility to be employed.

Although I certainly believe that we should let people choose what they want to be, but should we as well guide them and inform these students that even if they like that course and profession, they will still find a hard time applying what they have learned and be in that profession since there are millions who are as well rooting for it?

These schools as I can see it don't really care about what's going to happen with their students after studying. These schools only care about what they will get from students, especially the tuition. But then what? They should also see to it that these students will not end up as bystanders or bums. A college graduate but is unemployed.

Also, interviewing our applicants, most of them would say: "I really didn't want to be a ******, my parents just forced me to it. I just took the course for them." Believe it or not, 60% of our applicants said that. I mean, how can this happen? Do most parents don't care about the future of their children but care about what course they need to take without even assessing the possibility of their children being employed? Are they okay to have a doctor of a son but is unemployed for 8 years (I know 2 people)? Than to have their child take a course which would give them the opportunity to be employed?

I do know that most people say, parents know what's best for their children. However, they need to be updated as well. Most parents know about things that are 20 years ago. Most parents would even smirk at IT courses but they don't know that a 3 year experience PHP programmer earns more than a 5 year experience lawyer. Yes, they are only knowledgeable based on experience and I doubt that most parents are updated about the current employment trend.

After a while, I became a trainer for a call center. Being a trainer (not trainor) for a call center, you would know a lot about incoming employees since you will be training them. There, I had been emerged into a lot of people who think that call center is their final option since they can't find a job. I'm sorry to say but I can totally agree to them. Has anyone of us even thought when high school that we want to study in college to become a call center agent? I doubt it. Maybe a few but hey, there are only few schools who provide call center courses and most of them honestly are those who think that they cannot pass the call center's interview. Sorry if I would hurt some of your ego but we have to face the reality.

Yes, for those who have no call center experience, being a call center agent is a very great experience, especially when you're practical. However, don't you want to have career growth. I know that being a call center agent can be promoted to team leads, support positions, managers, etc., but trust me, it requires so much hard work and great competition, because there will be thousands of you rooting for that position. Also, sorry to hurt you guys but politics is very rampant in call centers. For those call center agents who think otherwise, do a survey in your office, I would stop blogging if this would turn out false.

Again, as a trainer, I noticed the same thing, most call center agents are Nursing graduates. And if you ask them why they ended up being a call center agent, they would say, they have hard time looking for a job since there are a lot of nurses right now. True. I agree to that. But my question still repeats, why did they take this course. Still, their answers are the ones above.

One thing I also learned that time is that most nurses cannot look for a job since most hospitals have a backer system. WHAT THE..! Until now, we have this? Before, I knew this happens in schools for them to get higher grades and even graduate and even get to great schools but in employment especially in hospitals? This is so redundant. Schools and employers are somewhat the same.

I think that every employers should check their recruitment processes. They have to make sure that they get the best, not the ones with the best backer.

Also, they complained that most employers want those with experience. How can these students have experience if you don't employ them? Also, then what is the On-the-Job Training (OJT) for if you won't accept it anyway? A waste of money for companies to get cheap or free labor from students? Yup, it's obvious, it's a way for companies to have cheap and free labor. Also, there are a lot of hospitals that would have nurses pay for them to get experience. This is really pissing me off. These nurses have years of OJTs and then after graduation you will still consider them as inexperienced? These hospitals should be sued for all their unfair policies. Why would these nurses pay and then you get the service? They are EXPERIENCED NURSES already, okay? You keep telling yourself that they are not so you can get cheap and free labor. This is outright slavery.

Yes, this is not a hoax, nurses cannot do anything about it anyway because they need experience and they can only get it if they pay these greedy hospitals. They feel as if it's an opportunity for you to be having your training there and learn a lot from their organization. Convince yourself that way, but you know yourself that that is a lie. I hope they burn in hell with their money. May I ask, do you guys issue receipt when you receive the payment from these students? Seriously?

The government should know this by years now and yet nothing has been done to resolve this. These hospitals are seriously taking advantage of these unemployed and fresh-graduates to earn from them and get service from them. GOVERNMENT, WAKE UP!

Going back to my employment, I was then offered a job as a teacher for college students and I was so happy to be offered that position so I resigned from my job and worked as a teacher... for college students. Nice. I only stayed for 2 semesters because for me it's really boring to teach. Sorry for teachers but I really felt that way. Teaching 3 classes same thing for the whole day, it's not my type of job. I don't have patience for that. At least being a trainer before was better since I only have to repeat my topic every 2 months.

Being a teacher I learned a lot of things.
1) It's not good to always sit, stand as much as possible.
2) It's better if you make use of the whole room and walk as much as possible when talking.
3) Never read from a book
4) Never read from the book and not understand it before teaching it.
5) When you are asked a difficult question, don't check your book, just excuse yourself for a minute, say you wanna take a leak, and ask you colleagues. But don't let your students know that you don't know
6) Have an activity once in a while
7) Letting your students report more than 50% of your whole semester is outright laziness.
8) Most teachers don't know what they are talking about.
9) Most math, science and history teachers have poor pronunciation skills
10) Never go out with your students even after school hours or weekends.

Then I returned to being an immigration consultant in a new company. Sad to say, I have been emerged with more number of unemployed graduates.

I stayed there for almost 3 years and then after that I decided to resign since the company is not doing well. Luckily I was employed right away as a Head of a BPO Recruitment Team. This is where I knew a lot of things as to why most graduates are unemployed.

Continuation on my RESUME, INTERVIEW and EMPLOYMENT BLOOPERS

==================================================

This is an opinionated post, but what I said are 100% true. If I hit you, I'm not sorry for what I said but sorry that I hit you. But I did not put this to hit you, but to hit everyone and for them to wake up.

My Freshman Series (Chapter 15... Growing Up)


Sorry for the late posting guys.

==============================================

Sabihin na nating mabilis ang panahon. Mas lalo na kaming naging close na tatlo nina Rod at James. Sa aming tatlo ako ang pinakatahimik. Sabi nga nila misteryoso ako dahil di man lang ako nanagkukuwento tungkol sa pamilya ko. Palagi din nilang tinatanong kung pwede kaming tumambay sa bahay namin pero palaging sinasabi ko na hindi pwede dahil magagalit ang kuya ko.

Alam lang nila na dalawa lang kami ni Kuya Gilbert sa bahay. Pinakilala ko na rin sila kay Kuya Gilbert noong isang araw na sinundo ako ni Kuya Gilbert. Di pumapalya sa pagsundo sa akin si Kuya Gilbert kahit na sinasabi ko naman sa kanya na kaya ko namang umuwi mag-isa. Biro pa nga niya e baka bigla daw akong madagit.

Kumunot lang ang noo ko sa sinabi niyang ito pero parang may selos. Hahaha. Pero ayoko maging hoping e.

Siguro panahon na para i-describe ko sarili ko noong panahon na iyon.

Age: 11
Katawan: konting payat
Mata:
[Ayan na... unti-unti na akong nakikita. Hahahaha!]
Ilong: Di masyadong malaki, di rin maliit, pero may katangusan
Tenga: Halos pare=pareho lang naman tayo ng mga tenga e
Buhok: bagsak na bagsak, manipis kaya padaling ayusin.
Dibdib: Medyo maganda, sabi daw nung PE teacher namin kahit daw di ako macho e maganda daw ang bone structure ko, pang-body builder dahil daw maganda na dibdib ko kahit di pa ako nag-gym. Medyo tayung-tayo pa mga utong ko
Tiyan: Wala akong taba sa tiyan dahil siguro sa araw-araw namin sex noon ni Kuya Gilbert
Lips: Medyo pouty pero katamtaman ang kulay
[Ayan na promise ko. May bonus pa na mata.]
Medyo makinis pa ang balat ko noon panahon na yun at medyo may kaputian. (See previous chapters)
Ang aking titi ay medyo lagpas na ng apat na pulgada sa edad na iyon. At lubos akong biniyayaan sa bandang likuran dahil ang puwet ko naman ay masyadong maumbok. Kaya siguro lumaki iyon sa dami ng beses na may pumasok doon at namaga. Hahaha. Di naman.

Di naman sa nagmamayabang pero cute naman daw talaga ako. Makinis, sakto lang ang height at katawan, medyo maputi, mabait, tahimik, at malapit nang maging mukhang babae. Hahaha.

Ngunit simula nang nagkatamod na ako ay unti-unti nang nagbago ang katawan ko. Naaalala ko pa ang panahon na una akong nilabasan. Nagbabasa ako ng "Hiligaynon" magazine. May komiks dun sa likod at may part na nagsi-sex yung lalaki at babae. E nakadapa ako noon. Naisip kong gayahin ang ginagawa ng lalaki sa babae. Kumakadyot din ako sahig. Siguro nabutas na yung sahig sakin.

Habang kumakadyot ako ay para akong sinisilaban sa init. Umiinit buong katawan ko. Para na rin akong maiihi sa sarap. Gusto kong pigilan pero sabi ko kung iihi man ako, pupunasan ko na lang at maliligo na lang ako kesa naman pigilan ko ang sarap na nararamdaman ko. Nagulat ako nang biglang sumabog ang titi ko. Inaasahan ko na may mainit na ihing dadalot sa sahig pero wala akong naramdaman.

Agad akong tumihaya para silipin ang titi ko at nagulat ako nang may maputing likido na lumabas doon, medyo malagkit at matapang ang amoy. Iyon ang unang beses kong labasan.

Nasa puberty stage na ako noon kung saan ay marami nang nagbabago sa akin. Isang araw nang magising si Kuya Gilbert dahil sa sigaw ko galing sa banyo. Akala niya ay kung napaano na ako.

"O, bakit? Ano'ng nangyari sa'yo?" agad na tanong nito.

Agad akong napatitig sa kanya. Sa pagkabigla niya ay di na niya nakuhang magbihis kaya nasa pinto siya at nakahubo. Napangiti ako bigla nang makita ko ang ari niya.

Napangiti siya at pasimpleng tinakpan ang harap niya.

"Hoy! Ano'ng nangyari bakit ka nagsisisigaw?" ulit pa nito.

"Kuya..." sabay turo ko sa ilong ko. "... may taghiyawat ako!"

Sabay iyak ko pa.

Lumapit siya sa akin at niyakap ako.

"Ano ka ba? Ganyan talaga. Nagbibinata ka na kasi e."

Mas lalo akong umiyak ng malakas.

"O sige, nagdadalaga na lang." biro pa nito.

Hinampas ko siya sa dibdib. Mas lalo lang niya akong niyakap.

"Ano ka ba? Kahit na tubuan pa ng taghiyawat buong katawan mo, para sakin ikaw pa rin ang pinaka-cute na anghel." Pambobola pa nito.

Inilayo niya ang mukha ko at pinunasan ang luha ko.

"Tahan na, okay? Bilisan mo na maligo at mali-late ka. Lalabas na ako, baka kung ano na naman maisip nating dalawa." nakangiti pa niyang isinara ang pinto.

Tumingin uli ako sa salamin. What if mapuno nga ng taghiyawat ang mukha ko? Di ba kadiri tingnan iyon?

Naaasiwa man pumasok pa rin ako na may taghiyawat sa ilong. Di lang basta sa ilong. Sa pinakadulo ng ilong ko. Center of attraction siya.

Pagkakita sa akin ni James ay agad itong natawa. Turo pa ng turo sa ilong ko. Nainis ako at lumayo ako sa kanya. Di ako umupo sa tabi niya.

Pagkarating naman ni Rod ay tumawa din ito. Nakakainis. Hay.

"Gel, sorry na. Balik ka na dito sa tabi ko. Wag mo sabihin diyan ka pa rin. Unfair naman iyon dahil pareho kaming tumawa ni Rod, pero tatabi ka pa rin sa kanya." pakiusap ni James.

"Wag na Gel. Diyan ka na lang." pero tumatawa pa rin ito.

"Ewan ko sa inyo." sabay baling ng tingin sa libro ko.

Buong araw ko silang di kinausap. Kahit na magkakatabi kami ay di ko pa rin sila kinikibo.

Bago pa mag-uwian ay inakbayan nila akong dalawa. Pilit ko mang iwinawaksi ang mga braso nila pero walang nangyayarin dahil mas malalaki sila sa akin, at dalawa pa.

"Ano ba? Ang babantot niyo na kaya." inis kong sabi.

"Aba! At kelan ka pa nagreklamo sa amoy namin, huh?" Si James.

"Naku! Wag mo sabihing mabaho kami. Maraming magtitilian diyan kapag naghubad ako ng damit at ibinato sa kanila." pagmamayabang naman ni Rod.

"Kapal naman!" sabay namin ni James.

"Hay naku Angelo. Di ka namin tatantanan hangga't di mo kami binabati." Tampong sabi ni Rod.

Sa isip ko. Wag ko silang batiin para habambuhay silang nakaakbay sa akin. pero sa isip ko kapag pinatagal ko pa ito mas lalo silang magdududang bading ako.

"Sige na nga. Naiinis lang kasi ako sa taghiyawat ko e." sabi ko pa.

"Naku, mestiso ka kasi kaya madali kang taghiyawatin. Kami kasing mga purong Pinoy, di madaling taghiyawatin. Makikinis kami e." biro pa ni Rod.

"Ayan ka na naman ha?" babala ko sa kanya.

"Pero may isa lang ang ibig sabihin niyan. Alam mo ba ano ibig sabihin ng taghiyawat sa ilong?" si James.

Umiling ako.

"Ibig sabihin may taong may sobrang crush sa'yo!" malakas niyang pagsabi. Sabay nag-high five pa sila ni Rod.

"Ngek! Sino naman magkakagusto sa akin? E halos lahat dito mas malaki pa sa'kin." di ako makapaniwalang sinabi.

"Ewan din namin." sabi ni James.

"Baka isa sa amin ni James. Hulaan mo na lang kung sino." biro ni Rod.

Sabay tawanan kaming tatlo.

Naglalakad na kami palabas ng gate nang magpaalam sila nang makita si Kuya Gilbert.

"Sige tol bukas na lang ulit." sabay tapik sa balikat ko ni James.

"Sige, Gel." pagpapaalam ni Rod. Lumapit pa siya ng konti at bumulong.

"Malay mo nga isa sa amin ang may-ari ng taghiyawat na iyan." bulong nito sabay takbo palayo.

Napalagok ako.

Biro pa ba iyon? Di magandang biro sa isip ko.
