Our Pinoy Henyo

Earlier, while I was on my way home from SM, I was watching Eat Bulaga and the show was featuring "Pinoy Henyo."    Admittedly, that game was really entertaining.

If I remember it right, while I was working for a call center then, we had a game just like Pinoy Henyo. 

The word to be guessed was a Filipino Food, and it was Lechon.

When one of our co-workers was guessing what word it was, she asked it it was alive or not.   The funny thing that one of our gay co-workers said, was not yes or no, he said"before" and the whole group burst into laughter.

That was one of my fondest memories at work.

Pay Your Taxes with a Smile


They said, we should pay our taxes with a smile. 

I tried but the BIR wanted it cash.

The Dying Man


 Priest to a dying man:  "Son, curse Satan!

The man was silent.

The priest repeated his command.

But the man remained silent. 

Priest:  "Why don't you speak up?"

Men:  "Father, this is not the time to make enemies!"

Women then and now


There was a joke I heard over the radio about women. 

The women were given a distinct difference then, during the Japanese occupation, and the women now.

Before, women were asked by their parents  to hide when Japanese were invading the Philippines.  Now, it is the exact opposite.

Today, women were asked to wear their shortest shorts when a Japanese visits. (joke only please....)

It is hard to face the problem, when the problem is your face

Long time ago, yes, I mean, long time ago I came across this saying:
   "it is hard to face the problem, when the problem is your face."

I was still in college then and when I got into my seat in one of my subjects, I saw that  inscription.  

I got curious, and I thought of   answering back.   I wrote something on my chair.  Yes I was wrong and I apologized for being a vandal. 

I inscribed ,  "what if you do not have a face?"

The following day, when I went  inside  that same room and I sat on the same chair, I was surprised to see an answer.

It said that:   "then that is another problem"  with a smiling face.  LOL.

The morale of the story is:

.....please do not write anything on your chair

There is nothing in your head

On today's  Sunday Mass,  while listening to the homily, I noticed that we have a new priest, a visiting  priest from Novaliches.  Personally, I think that it is always nice to see a fellow kababayan as your priest than a foreigner.

He talked about the difference of a problem and a mystery.   A problem always has a solution while a mystery does not have one.  Even an explanation is not at all necessary for sometimes you just have to believe in it.

He specifically talked about Mama Mary that she was able to bear Jesus in her purity and that is a mystery that we have to believe.

While listening to him, I  told myself that this priest has the combination of sense and humor. It is a fusion that tis  both enlightening and heartening and is always good for one's soul - mine specifically. :)

Towards the end of his homily, the priest  told a story about a little boy.  One night the boy was  complaining  to his mother that his was experiencing an upset stomach and that his tummy hurts.   The mother asked if he had dinner and the boy said no. The mother said that the reason why his tummy was aching was because it had nothing in it.

The following morning, the little boy noticed that his mother was not in her usual mood.  And the boy asked his mother what was wrong.  The mother said that she had migraine.  The little boy then told his mother that perhaps the reason why her mom's head was aching was because it had nothing in it. 

The priest finalizes that life is a series of ups and downs, of happiness and sorrow, of pain and joy.  It is something that we should embrace for it is a part of one's life.  The best thing that we could do is to always fill ourselves with God's presence so that the pain that we are experiencing in our everyday lives is bearable.

Brave may not live forever, but the cautious does not live at all

Going through life is not easy.  You meet obstacles that can sometimes stunt your journey.  Braving the storm is what requires of us to head on to the different challenges in life.
The risks in life are part of the battle.
You may sometimes wonder, what if things won't work out, what if I fail.  These are the negative ideas we get out of fear.  Are we just going to let them maneuver our decisions in life? 
What if it works out and we did not even try at all?
Life will be more meaningful and more fruitful if we believe in ourselves.
Start working on it and carry on the bliss that goes through the challenges of life.
