Hi to Class/Batchmates up there and down under,
I was amused by the different write ups youve got here in our blog.It is a stormy and rainy day today but your thoughts and ideas on the different subjects and issues really brighten and make up my day. Let me join you in tackling the various concerns ok?
First of all,Happy Birthday to all the August celebrators....May the peace of our Lord be with you throughout your life.
On the subject of growing old,..yes I do agree with you pareng Mike ,kalabaw lang tumatanda pero ang puso at damdamin ng tao dapat laging bumabata...Mabuti na raw ang tumandang may pinagkatandaan kaysa sa batang parang walang pinagaralan..So let us grow old and beautiful in the eyes of the Lord after all ...Wrinkles lang yan...cream lang ang katapat niyan.Gray hair lang yan....laging may hair dye sa botika ,iba-iba pa ang kulay...Forgetfullness lang yan ..normal biological process, ang mahirap kalimutan agad tayo ng ating kapwa at ni Lord.
Re-kumare and kumpare..We teachers used to make our class learn the meaning of words by analyzing it through affixes and rootwords. The prefix CO means with or together with while the rootwords mare or pare means mother/father. These affixes and rootwords being used in the modern languages such as English and Spanish are derived from the ancient Latin Greek and Hebrew languages. In the country,being sponsors or witnessess to religious ceremonies like baptism and wedding makes you a kumare or kumpare of the parents and the ninong/ninang of the child or the bride and groom. In this Christian nation specifically the catholics being kumare and kumpare means you are with or together with the parents in seeing the child grows as a good christian and the married couple to start and lead a christian family.
Re-Bansag..I have come to realize that bansag is being given to people during our time because children were given the same name and so the need for their identity. Look ..in San Vicente alone we have Boy Kornel, Boy Bisaya, Boy Alang -then, Fredong palaka, Fredong OIC, Fred darapa, Fred sigabo,- Belen ago, Belen mario-Babyng palaka Babyng amado-Remyng aida, Remyng putol-Mariang ado, Mariang telebok. Others are C armen dikit, Erning sanidad, Bertang bingi , Emman patko, Dr Baba, Charing hilot, Inggong tsapong Inggong ilokano, Max llamado , boy bato and of course my mother was known in the town as Chayong baka di ba?
Ngayon ko lang naintindihan kung bakit lately parents are giving their children unusual names such as Jed, Jares Xerxes Zhasmin etc. .para siguro maiwasan ang mabigyan ng bansag. Warning therefore ,if you go to San Vicente siguraduhin ninyong si emmang fred ang hinahanap ninyo at hindi si emmang ado o emmang guding .
Well,this is to inform you that Fely R. Julie and yours truly are now on our leave as a prelude to our retirement few months from now..See you all in 2010
