Taken for granted

August 16-22, 2014

Dear Miss L,
Hello Miss L. Nabasa naho sa injong latest 2 issues ang mga love problems ug nahatagan nimo ug mga nindot nga advices. Maong aho pod untang ishare ang ahong problema para makuha-kuhaan ang kahoot sa ahong dughan ug para mahatagan pod nimo ug advices ug basin malamdagan ang ahong huna2x. Personally, kaila tang duha maong mag alyas na lamang ko tungod kay mauwaw ko nimo. I heard man pod sauna pa nga good adviser ug good listener ka. Just call me Carla from SJC ug lumad nga taga Maasin.

My problem is about my present boyfriend. Sige sijag ingon nga importante ko nija ug nahigugma cja nahu. Pero waman sijay oras para naho. Sige sijag ingon nga bz sija kay daghan daw sila projects pero kung barkada kay naa sijay dakong oras. Pirmi ko nija bakakan. Di sija motxt or motawag, kung ako motawag, di nija tubagon kay nag uban diay sa ijang mga barkada bisan asa mag suroy2x moabot pa ug laing planeta. Di gani ko nija bisitaon kung masakit ko. Kung ako na gani, di jod cja makahatag ug time bisag monthsary namo. Dli sa ingon nga nag binata ko para mag celebrate og ingon ana. Ngano man sii ang mga minjo makahatag man gani og special nga oras kung anniversary, ang uban pod nga mga mas matured pa nho naay oras para sa usag usa. Kita baja siguro mga baje nanginhanglan
ta nga ipakita pod nila nga importante ta. Kung tinood nga imporatante ko nija, ngano bale walaon ra man ko nija? Wa man ko nag demand nga ako ijang first priority. Ang aho ra, unta usa pod ko sa ijang priority.

Buwagan na lamang ba kaha naho sija Miss L? Kaysa mag sige ra ko huna2x kung importante ba ko nija. Mas tiguwang paman unta sija naho pero mura man sija wa pa’y boot lage. Ako gani ijang pahimuon bisag excuse letter na lamang, assignments, mga projects ug
research. Kung di sija mouli sa ila kay ako dajon ang questionon sa ijang pamilya. Wa lamang sila kahibaw kung unsa kasiaw ilang anak sa klase ug sa among relasyon. Matinga pod ko nija Miss L kay kung mag uban mi mag sige ring ijang cellphone ja mopalajo sija kung ijang tubagon. Kung nay message kay di na nija ipatan-aw nahu unlike before nga ijang ipabasa. Sungogon pod sija sa ijang mga barkada kung naa ko ug “Sana dalawa ang puso ko.”

Unta hatagan ko nimo ug advices Miss L kung unsa dapat nahong buhaton. Kung ikaw naa sa ahong part nga ingon anaon ra unja makadungog sa sugsug nga inadto, unsay imong bation ug unsay imong huna-hunaon? Thank you Miss L. More power to SLT!!!

Love,

Carla

Dear Carla,

Hi, Carla. It’s so flattering that a friend of mine is sharing her problem with us and trusting me to give advice though you’re hiding yourself in the name of Carla, but of course, I understand you. You know Carla, your problem is common to most ladies. Murag inana najud siguro kasagaran mga laki. I’m not saying all men are like that because I know there are still men out there who show how important their loved ones are and put them as first in their priority list. Kung di man gani dota ang karibal natong mga baje, barkada jod nah kauban na niana ang laag ug tagay2x nila.

We cannot force anyone nor can demand nga dapat kita’ng mga uyab ang ilang ipriority kay lahi man gud ang prisipyo sa mga laki. Though they love us pero not always in the way we wanted to be loved. Lain2x baja ang tao, so lain2x pod ta ug paagi to show how much we love and care for the people we value the most. I know bug-at jod sa buot kung inana na laman jod permi ang imong boyfriend.
The best thing you can do is talk to him and tell him what you truly feel. Because sometimes man gud, insensitive sila. They think ok ra para sa baje kung mag- inana sila bisag sakit na para nato. Don’t make big decisions lang usa kay basin magregret ra unja ka in the end. Kung unsa man pod gani ijang mga gipakita or gipangbuhat nga nakahatag nimo ug pagduda, maybe ask him to tell you the truth. Kay basin wa rajod na para nija.

Pag heart-to-heart talk mo kay basin naa pod sija’y problema sa pamilya or pagskwela, o di ba kaha naa ka’y pagkuwang pod nija. Di baja ta makabantay usahay sa atong kaugalingong sajop o pagkuwang.

Hopefully, ma-ok ramong duha. Break- up is not always the solution, Carla. Sometimes it’s just an escape from our commitments and sufferings. Wa baja’y flavor ang relationship kung way away. Trials add flavor and color sa atong lovelife, and those are the quarrels and problems we overcome and sacrifices we make para maglast ang relationship. Pero kung di jod gihapon effective, then maybe you need to distant yourself from him. Let him grow on his own and make him realize that he needs you and you’re important for him most especially that he’s dependent on you sa ijang responsibilities as a student. As what the song goes, “Sometimes, you got to act like you don't care, that’s the only way the boys learn.” Good luck, Carla.

Love,

Miss L

Waiting in vain

August 9-15, 2014

Dear Miss L,

Nadunggan nahu nga mudawat namo ug suwat-tampo karon bahin sa problema sa pamilya, gugma2 or friendship para imong mahatagan sa imong mga bulawanong tambag, mao nga ahung ipadangat ang ahung problema mahitungod sa ahung lab of my lyf.

Una kini naho na-meet ning bayhana sa dihang may gi-organize among skul niadtong Mayo 2013. Sa tinuoray, ako ang klase sa laki nga di jod mutuo anang gugma sa unang sulyap pero sa dihang nakita ko na kining bayhana, ambot ba, mura man ug naka-feel ko nga murag nay nagdikta sa ahung huna2x nga kinahanglan mailaila nahu ning bayhana.

I’ll just make my story short. She accepted me as a friend ug sa nanglabayng panahon, ahu nagipadayag ang ahung gugma nija. Nagpaabot jod ko kung kanusa ko nija sugton ug woooh natuman jud ang ahung gipangandoy’ng tubag. Niadtong adlawa,way makasukod sa ahung kalipay ug ahung gi-promise nga sugod adtong adlawa, ahung isurrender nija ang pagpitik sa ahung kasing2x. We were happy with our relationship and despite of hectic scheds, mag-communicate gihapon mi ug magkita and even there’s no occasion, we give each other gifts.

I thought our relationship was perfect but I was wrong. Wako magdahom nga mahanaw ra ang tanan tungod ra sa gamay’ng wa pagkasinabtanay. I feel like I failed one of my dreams in life. Ambot nganu gibuwag man mi sa panahon. Since that day, kanunay nako gipalurat ni insomnia, wana ko’y gana and everyday ko’ng nag ampo sincerely nga unta mabalik na ang babae nga ahung gipangandoy
as future wife. Almost 8 months nako cge pakigbalik nija, namasin nga maluwas pa ang ahung "DREAM" nga relasyon, pero ambot lang kaha ug kining ahung gibuhat karon makaani ba kaha ug mga lami nga prutas puhon...unta lang jud, coz I sure can't live WITHOUT her in my life... :) I LOVE HER SO MUCH!! She knows how much I do :) and that is for sure...I miss her :( Dinhi nalang kutob, Miss L. Daghang salamat daan sa imong bulawanong tambag.

P.S. di ko mudawat ug tambag nga "i-LET GO nalang cja" kay sa gikaingon kona, parte na sya sa ahung mga damgo nga gusto nahung makab-ot or maangkon puhon.

Truly yours,
MARK

Dear Mark,

I’m so glad that you share your love life problem to us and trusted me to give you my “bulawanong tambag”. Sakit man tuod hunahunaon nga mawa ra sa inana ka-sajon ang tanan ninjo pero you have to accept the fact nga nawa cja nimo tungod kay wamo nagkasinabot. Based on your story, both happy mo sa injong relationship at first but just because of very shallow reason, nahanaw ra ang tanan. Siguro, di jod kana ang main reason, Mark. May maslawom pa niana.

Ang ahung ma-advice nimo since di man jod ka modawat ug tambag nga let her go, then, fight for her and fight for your love kutob sa dawaton ka nija pagbalik,o diba kaha, madawat nimo nga di jod kamo ang meant to be. Time heals, Mark. But if she really loves you, i-set aside nija ang pride kay as what you said, gamay ra to nga wa pagka-sinabtanay ang rason sa injong break-up.

Love is greater than everything in any aspect, for me. If she’s willing to save your relationship, she’ll accept you again. But if she’s not, then, hinay-hinaya nalaman ug dawat ang reality nga maybe di pa karon ang time para ninjong duha, or di jod kamo ang para sausa’g-usa.

I think you’re a good man and you deserve to be happy. Di man tuod dali dawaton kung moingon ko nga kalimti usa sija and magpakalipay ka, pero way laing makatabang nimo Mark kundi ikaw ra. You have lots of friends, you have your family. I know they’re willing to help you. Ang importante, kahibaw sija how much you love her. Naana nija ang decision. And it’s time to love yourself, Mark. Don’t make yourself suffer too much. Time will surely come nga, kung di man gani sija ang para nimo, the right one will come.

Good luck, Mark. God bless.

Love,

Miss L


KABIT?

August 2-8, 2014

Dear Ms. L,

Narinig ko po na mayroon kayong section sa newspaper kung saan pwedeng makahingi kami ng advice sa mga problema namin kaya nagtanong-tanong agad ako kung ano ang email ninyo. Itago niyo nalang po ako sa pangalang Anne.

Hanggang high school lang po ang natapos ko dahil sa hirap ng buhay.

Labandera lang ang nanay ko at potpot driver ang tatay ko. Ang kuya ko lang sana ang pag-asa ng mga magulang ko na makatulong samin dahil siya lang po ang nakatungtong ng college saming 4 na magkakapatid, pero nakabuntis ho siya at ngayon ay magdadalawang taon na ang anak niya.

Nagtatrabaho po ako sa isa sa mga tindahan sa Maasin, lampas 2 years na po. Hindi naman po ako kagandahan pero maputi po ako kaya ho siguro nagfi-flirt ho sakin yung amo kong lalaki, lalo na kung wala ang asawa niya.

Palagi rin ho kasing wala ang asawa niya, nagta-travel ho. Binibigyan po ako ng pera ni boss kahit noong ilang buwan pa lang po ako. Sabi nya bonus ko daw yun dahil masipag daw ako. Pero hindi nagtagal, inimbita na nya po akong lumabas para kumain at mamasyal. Sinabi ko po ang tungkol dito sa boyfriend ko at gusto nyang tumigil ako sa pagtatrabaho dahil baka gagawin akong kabet ng boss ko dahil uso nanga raw ngayon ang illegal wife at mistress.

Hindi naman po ako sigurado kung ano talaga ang relasyon namin ng amo ko basta Masaya po ako sa kanya dahil binibigay niya ho sa akin ang mga pangangailangan ko, inaalagaan at mabait po talaga sya sakin.

Pero ayoko rin naman po na magbreak kami ng bf ko dahil close po sya ng family ko at pinagkakatiwalaan din sya ng parents ko. At kung susundin ko ang bf ko, mawawalan na ho ako ng trabaho. Mahirap pa naman makahanap ng trabaho sa ngayon. Paano nalang po ang pamilya ko?

Si boss lang po ang nakakatulong sa problema namin at papaaralin daw niya ako ng college next sem. Sana po mabigyan nyo po ako ng advice. Maraming salamat and more power!

Sumasainyo,

Anne

Dear Anne,

Naintindihan ko naman ang sitwasyon mo, Anne. Most of us are facing the same problems, ang pera. Sino ba naman ang hindi, di ba? Hindi naman ako expert sa buhay pero ang mai-aadvice ko lang sayo, layuan mo nalang sana ang boss mo hangga’t maaga pa. Di ba nga naaawa ka sa pamilya mo kaya nagawa mo ito? Isipin mo nalang ang pamilya ng boss mo, ang mga anak niya.

Wala naman sigurong babae na gusto maging kabet di ba? Huwag mo na sanang paabutin na malaman nang asawa ng boss mo ang tungkol sa inyo kahit paman hindi ka sure sa status niyong dalawa. At sana huwag mo rin kalimutan ang 9th commandment of God: “You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife”.

Marami pa namang pwede mapasukang trabaho. Pwede ka rin mag-working student kung gusto mo talaga makatapos ng pag-aaral nang wala kang masasaktang tao. Masasaktan mo rin ang pamilya mo kapag nalaman nila ang tungkol dito.Marami tayong successful persons na ganun din ang estado ng buhay dati. Ika nga, habang may buhay, may pag-asa. Kaya sana huwag mong idedepende ang future mo sa boss mo dahil hindi niya hawak ang buhay mo at ng pamilya mo. At huwag mo rin kalimutan ang tumawag sa Kanya dahil hindi niya tayo bibiguin. In His time, you’ll reach all your dreams. God bless.

Nagmamahal,

Miss L


Miss Southern Leyte 2014

Winners : Miss Southern Leyte 2014 went to Ms.Padre Burgos - Genivie M. Rodriguez; 1st runner - up went to Ms. Macrohon - Riza Kuizon; 2nd runner-up went to Ms. Liloan -. El Fel Sharae Banaybanay; 3rd runner-up went to Ms. Malitbog - Josephine Evans; 4th runner-up went to Ms. Maasin City - Nathalie Jane Raniel

Macrohon’s beautiful fish sanctuary

MACROHON - If you want a budget friendly ecoadventure you need not look far as Barangay Sta. Cruz’s Molopolo fish and bird sanctuary is your ticket to instant eco-gratification.

Just 15 minutes from Maasin City and along Macrohon’s national highway the fish and bird sanctuary is one of the most accessible tourist spots in Southern Leyte.

Upon reaching the sanctuary you will hear the mating calls of wild ducks and sea cranes and see the beach’s inviting swimming area.

If you have no fear of heights you can climb the observation tower and have a panoramic view of the mangrove forests which protect both sides of the sanctuary and of the pristine reefs which is only one kilometer away.

However your visit will not be complete if you don’t traverse the long bamboo bridge that leads to the protected marine grounds and feed the different variety of fish there.

Since words cannot express the feeling one gets when one visits this beautiful expression of Macrohon’s homage to Mother Nature, visit the sanctuary one day, and bring your family. It’s really worth it and the staff there are friendly.

And yes. The impressive reef which is one kilometer from shore has been Christened “unofficially” as the Ruperto Kangleon Reef. But of course this must be formalized by Macrohon’s beautiful Mayor Fe Edillo in a ceremony befitting Southern Leyte’s greatest war hero. (By RUEVIVAR “WOWIE” REYES)
