*engkanto nga ba?*

Ang bawat tao ay may kinabibilangang kultura
na syang pangkabuuang pananaw ng mga tao sa isang lipunan sa mundo at sa kanilang kapaligiran
ito ay hango sa mga paniniwala, tradisyon, uri ng pamumuhay, at iba pang mga bagay. Tama ba? ;)

Naalala ko tuloy yong mga kwento ng lola ko, ang engkanto raw di mo yan sila makikita, kaya ang sasabihin mo tabi tabi apo. ;) Sakaling makita mo raw ang isang engkanto ibig sabihin may nunal ang iyong mata. *[superstitious belief can be found in every culture, pero di ako naniniwala sa ganyan dahil isa lang ang master ko].*

Isang araw nasa trabaho ako at ilang minuto nalang uuwi na rin para mananghalian. Si bosing ko naman bago yon umuwi sa kanila mag Allah wa Aqbar *[Islam prayer]* muna. Minsan sa Mosque at minsan naman sa loob ng opisina nya. Napapansin ko bago magdasal si bosing pumapasok sa kubeta at nag huhugas. Yon ang palagi kong naririnig ang malakas na daloy ng tubig sa gripo.

Sa oras na yon, pagkatapos naghugas ni bosing, lumapit na medyo distansya at tinawag ako sabay tanong kong natapos ko na yong pinag gawa nya sa akin, ako naman na medyo nagmamadali at gustong tapusin ang trabaho. Tsaka gutom na rin yong mga alaga ko sa tiyan, eh mag tatanghali na, kaya reaksyon ko hindi na lumingon bali yong paningin ko derecho sa dinding na may salamin na eksaktong makita ko sya at makikita rin nya ako pag dun din ang tingin nya.

Aba! pag tingin ko sa dinding na may salamin, palagay ko basa pa yata yong mukha nya kasi kagagaling nga lang sa kubeta, nakita ko biglang tinaas yong damit nya na pang sakristan tawag pala nun ay *kandura* ang ginawa sabay punas sa mukha. Walang malay nakita ko sya. Ngunit alam nyo, laking pagka mangha ko, natulala, di tuloy natapos ang trabaho ko. Kayo kaya dun sa eksenang yon di ba kayo atakihin sa nerbiyos… kayo kaya ang maka kita ng isang engkanto. Si bosing walang suot na panloob? *[underwear],* huh! walang proteksyon yong engkanto nya? nakakatakot pala! josmio, malulugi pala ang Hanes underwear dito? pag nag lalakad sila’y…, kong ganun kumakaway? ah! basta andaming katanungan sa isipan ko.

Pagdating ng bahay, sa wakas naibuhos ko talaga ang napaka lakas na tawa, nagulat tuloy yong ka room mate ko e syempre inusyoso ako sa bruha kaya’t yon dalawa kaming tumatawa. Hindi naman yata kasalanan ang tumawa sa panahong yon buti naman at di kami kinabag, hehe.. aba! tinakot pa ako dahil pag ganun daw sa nakita ko, tutubuan ng pigsa ang mata ko. Kaya kelangan ko raw ang pansangga bubunot ng isang pilik hehe..pero kahit pimple walang tumubo sa mata ko noh.! sinungaling pala yong kaibigan ko hehe…

Sa di sinasadyang pag tingin napag alaman ko ang ilan sa kultura ng mga arabo. ;) At totoo pala isang makasalanan ang iyong mga mata, mula nun ayoko ng tumingin sa dinding na may salamin. Pag ako’y tinawag lingon agad! Tsaka walang nunal mata ko ha! hehe..

Happy weekend sa inyong lahat!!!

  • *Life*

    A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his
    wife open a package.
    What food might this contain?” The mouse wondered - he was devastated to
    discover it was a mousetrap.
    Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning.
    There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”

    The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, “Mr. Mouse,
    I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence
    to me. I cannot be bothered by it.”

    The mouse turned to the pig and told him, “There is a mousetrap in the
    house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”
    The pig sympathized, but said, “I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but ther
    is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my
    prayers.”

    The mouse turned to the cow and said “There is a mousetrap in the
    house! There is a mousetrap in the house! “The cow said, “Wow, Mr.
    Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.”
    So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the
    farmer’s mousetrap alone.

    That very night a sound was heard throughout the house like the sound of
    a mousetrap catching its prey.
    The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she
    did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The
    snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital, and
    she returned home with a fever. Everyone knows you treat a fever with
    fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for
    the soup’s main ingredient.
    But his wife’s sickness continued, so
    friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed
    them, the farmer butchered the pig.
    The farmer’s wife did not get well; she died. So many people came for
    her funeral, the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat
    for all of them. The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall
    with great sadness.

    So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it
    doesn’t concern you, remember — when one of us is threatened, we are
    all at risk.
    We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out
    for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.

    Ech of us is a vital thread in another persons tapestry, our lives are woven together for a reason.
    One of the best things to hold onto in this world is a friend.

  • *Happy Valentines Day*

    I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Valentines Day, I wish for you to have much love and happiness on this special day!! ;)
    Symbols associated with love and Valentine’s Day.
    Heart:It was formerly believed that the heart was the seat of all human emotions. Accordingly, the gifting of a heart signified the selfless act of giving everything to someone you love. Though the ancients were not aware that the heart was responsible for pumping blood though the circulatory system, yet they knew one thing for sure that the heart was the center of all feelings. This ancient belief has lingered on through the ages.
    Cupid:The love and attraction that a man and a lady feels for one another is traditionally ascribed to the mythological god, Cupid. In Latin, the word Cupid means “desire.” Cupid is represented as a naked, chubby boy with wings and possessing a mischievous smile. He carries a bow with a quiver of arrows which he uses to transfix the hearts of youths and maidens.
    And to my sweet friend Neng, maraming salamat sa napaka sweets na gift nyo :P pati doggy ko tuwang tuwa sa new toy nya, grabeh ang ingay sa loob ng bahay kasi bago yong toy lakas tumunog, sobrang excited ng doggy ko.
