“The Filipino Mentality”

Sa paghulma ng ating bansang Pilipinas, ito ay nakaranas ng mga mabubuti at mahihirap na panahon. Sa mga panahong ito, hindi ito naging madali para sa Pilipinas, ngunit ito ay nakaranas ng kolonisasyon mula sa iba’t ibang bansa. Ang halimbawa ng mga bansang ito ay ang España, Amerika at ang mga Hapon. Mula sa lahat ng mga ito, maraming natutunan ang mga Pilipino dahil naimpluwensyahan sila ng kultura at kaugalian ng mga bansang ito. Bago sila pumunta sa Pilipnas, tila lahat tayo ay hindi pa sibilisado, mula sa kanila ay nakuha natin ang ating relihiyon, uri ng gobyerno, mga kaugalian at marami pang iba. Maaari ngang kailangan natin silang pasalamatan sa lahat ng naibigay nila sa atin, ngunit sa panahong ito, tila’y parang masyado nating iniidolo o pinapasalamatan ang mga ibang bansa. Ito ay nagdudulot ng kolonial na mentalidad sa ating mga Pilipino. Ano ba ang kolonial na mentalidad? Ito ay ang pag-iisip na masmagaling o masmaganda ang kultura ng ibang mga bansa. Ang halimbawa ng mga ito ay ang pagbili o pagpabor ng “branded” o kaya “imported” na kagamitan at hindi mga lokal na gamit mula sa ating bansa. Kung mayroon tayong ganitong pag-iisip, hindi natin pinagmamalaki ang sariling atin na itinuro pa ng ating mga pambansang bayani. Sa madaling salita, lahat ng bagay tungkol sa ibang mga bansa ay masnakakataas sa lahat na nandito sa Pilipinas. Kailangan natin puksain at ikontra ang mentalidad na ito, upang maiwasan natin ito, Sana’y matulungan kayo ng aking anim na panukala upang maiwasan ang kolonial na mentalidad.

Ang una kong paraan ay matuto tayong ipagmalaki ang produktong Pilipino. Pwede tayo bumili o kaya ipakita sa iba ang mga produkto na ito. Isa itong epektibong paraan upang maiwasan ang kolonial na mentalidad dahil makikita natin na mahal natin ang ating bansa at ipinagmamalaki natin kung ano mayroon ang ating bansa. Kadalasan, puro mo mga “imported” na lamang ang ating gustong bilhin, parang paggaling sa ibang bansa ang isang produktong, parang masgumaganda na din ang kalidad nito. Hindi natin tinitignan na ang Pilipinas ay punong puno ng magagandang produkto, ito man ay mga damit, pagkain, kagamitan at iba pa. Sa pagkabulag natin sa mga produkto ng ibang bansa, hindi natin nakikita ang kalidad ng mga produkto ng bansa. Isang halimbawa ng produktong Pilipino ang mga sapatos na galing sa Marikina. Kung tutuusin, ang kalidad ng mga sapatos na ito ay napakaganda dahil ang mga manggagawa nito ay napakasipag, hindi natin nakikita kung gaano kaganda ang mga sapatos na ito at ang pagkakapareho ng itsura o desenyo sa mga “imported” na sapatos. Hindi din natin nakikita na mayroong din mga ibang bansa na namamangha sa ating mga produkto, mga damit, kagamitan para sa bahay, teknolohiya at iba pa. Buti pa ang ibang mga bansa ay nakikita ang kalidad ng ating mga produkto, sana’y tayo din ay matutong tignan at mahalin ang produktong Pilipino dahil ito ay napakaespesyal at napakaganda. Kailangan natin bigyang pansin ang mga produktong para hindi natin makalimutan kung saan tayo nanggaling.

Ang pangalawang panukala na maaari nating gawin ay tulungan ang kabataan upang tingkalakin ang kulturang Pilipino. Sabi nga ni Jose Rizal na ang kabatan ang kinabukasan ng bayan, kaya makakatulong kung magsisimula sa kanila ang pagmahal sa sariling atin dahil maipapasa nila ito sa mga susunod na henerasyon. Ngayon, ang mga kabataan din ang kadalasang mayroong kolonial na mentalidad dahil namulat na sila sa kultura ng ibang mga bansa at hindi na nila binibigyang halaga ang sarili nating kultura. Kadalasan, gusto nila maging sosyal o kaya sinusunod nila kung ano ang uso sa ibang mga bansa. Gusto nila na magkaroon ng magagandang damit at ginagaya nila ang nakikita nila tungkol sa ibang bansa. Ngunit napakakunti lamang ang sumusunod sa kultura ng ating bansa. Hindi nila nakikita ang lawak at kagandahan nito. Dapat tayo magtulungan upang matulungan ang kabataan para makita nila ang kahulugan ng ating kultura. Ang isa pang paraan upang magawa ito ay sa paraan ng edukasyon dahil dito matututunan ng mga kabataan ang ating kultura. Makakatulong ang edukasyon dahil dito magsisimula ang pagkamulat nila sa kulturang Pilipino.

Makikita natin sa video na ito kung paano matutulungan ng edukasyon at iba pang pagtatanghal upang matutunan ng mga kabataan ang sarili nilang kultura.

Pangatlo, kailangan natin makita ang kagandahan ng ating bansa, kailangan natin bigyang pansin ang kapaligiran nito. Ang bansa ay puno ng magagandang tanawin, ngunit hindi natin ito kadalasang napapansin, gusto natin parating lumabas ng bansa at bisitahin ang mga ibang lugar kagaya ng Amerika, Europa at iba pa. Hindi na natin masyadong binibigyang pansin ang sariling atin katulad ng mga kilalang puntahan ng mga turista katulad ng Boracay, Palawan, Puerto Princesa at marami pang iba. Kung ang mga ibang turista nga’y hangang hanga sa mga lugar na ito, bakit hindi natin ito makita? Tayo nga dapat ang mga taong higit na humanga sa mga ito, pero gigil na gigil tayo pumunta sa ibang bansa ngunit lahat naman ng makikita natin sa ibang lugar ay mayroon ang Pilipinas. Sana masdalasan natin ang pagpunta sa mga lugar dito sa Pilipinas upang makita natin kung gaano ito kaganda. Hindi naman masama ang pagpunta sa ibang bansa ngunit, sana’y tignan na muna natin ang kagandahan ng ating bansa bago hangaan natin ang iba.

Ang apat na panukala ko ay masdalasan natin ang pagsasalita ng wikang Pilipino. Ito ay isa sa mga napakadaling gawin para sa ating mga Pilipino upang maipakita ang ating pagiging makabayan, ngunit kadalasan masbinibigyan nating halaga ang mga wika katulad ng Ingles. Iniisip ng mga Pilipino na ang wikang Amerikano ay mashigit na importante sa ating sariling wika. Iniisip nila na pagmarunong magsakita ng ingles ang isang tao ay masnagiging mataas siya sa iba. Ngunit saan ba tayo nakatira? Pilipinas ang ating bansa at kailangan buong pagmamalaki nating bibigkasin ang ating wika dahil ito ang nagsisimbolo sa atin. Kung hindi tayo nagdasal its ng wikang Pilipino, pinapakita natin na hindi natin pinagmamalaki ang pagiging Pilipino. Kailangan nating gamitin ang ating wika dahil ito ang nagsisimbolo ng ating pagkakaisa at pagkakapantay. Sa bawat araw ng ating buhay, kailangang taas noo tayo magsalita ng wikang Pilipino.

Panglima, kung maaari ay gawin natin at sumali tayo sa kultura ng Pilipinas. Halimbawa, pwede natin gayahin ang kultura ng Pilipinas sa panliligaw, pwede tayo mangharana o kaya mamanhikan. Pwede din tayo dumalo sa mga piesta, kung saan sama sama tayong nagsasaya. Maaari tayo pumunta sa Sinulog Festival, Ati Atihan Festival at marami pang iba. Makakatulong ito upang puksain ang kolonial na mentalidad dahil malalaman natin ang kultura ng ating bansa, at kasabay nito ay sumasali din tayo sa makabuluhang gawain na ito. Matututunan din natin sa pagdalo ng mga fiesta ang kultura ng mga Pilipino, na talagang napakaseryoso ang mga Pilipino upang maisagawa ang fiesta. Malalaman natin kung gaano kalakas ang paniniwala ng mga Pinoy sa mga festival na ito. Ito ay isang ding simbolo ng pagkakaisa nating lahat dahil nagkakaisa tayo sa isang layunin na magpakasaya at magsalo-salo. Pwede din tayo maglaro ng larong Pilipino katulad ng patintero, tumbang preso, agawan base at iba pa. Sa pamamagitan nito makikita natin Kung gaano kasaya at kasimple ang larong Pilipino. Tulungan natin ang ating sarili at lumabas ng ating mga bahay upang makita natin kung gaano kalago at kalawak ang kultura ng ating bansa sa pamamagitan ng paggawa ng mga Ito.

At huli, kailangan magsimula sa atin ang pagbabago. Upang mapuksa ang kolonial na mentalidad, kailangan natin simulan iyon sa ating sarili dahil pagnagawa natin iyon maaari na din natin impluensyahan ang iba. Katulad ng katagang nagsasabing “Ikaw ang simula ng Pagbabago” na itinatampok din sa balita. Ibig sabihin nito ay kaya natin lahat magbago basta’t ikaw mismo ay magbabago din. Makakatulong ito upang ikontra a kolonial na mentalidad dahil pwede tayong mag tulong tulong upang mahalin ang ating bansa. Sabi nga nila, na lahat ay nagsisimula sa maliliit na bagay, at sa sitwasyong ito, sa sarili mo nagsisimula ang maliit na pagbabago na unti-unting lalaki at dadami hanggang sa lahat ng mga Pilipino ay magkaisa. Kung lahat ay hindi sumasangayon sa iyo, lagi ka lang manindigan sa iyong paniniwala na kailangan nating bigyang pansin ang ating kultura at huwag tignan ng masnakakataas ang mga ibang bansa. Lagi lang tayo maniwala sa ating sarili at huwag sumuko sa ating kagustuhan lalo na kung ito ay para sa tama.

Higit na masmari pa tayong magagawa upang maikontra ang kolonial na mentalidad. Alam ko na magagawa natin na magbago basta’t magtulungan lang tayo bilang isang bansa. Hindi naman masama na idolohin ang ibang mga bansa, ngunit, tandaan natin na ang sarili nating bansa ay parating mananaig dahil dito tayo nagmula at dito tayo namumuhay. Sana’y nakatulong ito upang makapagbago tayong lahat. Sundin niyo lang ang mga ito at malaki na ang matutulong nito sa inyong pag-iisip.

Martin Uy                             The “Bad boys”?

             This year in 2nd year high school, our service interaction this year, will be different, it is SOP, this time we have to go back to our venue in four Saturdays. First I really thought that the old style of service interaction was better when we just visit them on one day. Why do be have to go there 4 times? That’s what I thought before? But after SOP, I knew that this was actually a lot better, because before, after the service interaction, we don’t get to talk to them anymore. This time we can go back to the people we had SOP with, and we can get to know them a lot more, this time we just don’t help them, we also get to know them more and be closer to them each day.

              In the first day of SOP, I saw the place of boys town, it was far from Xavier School, about a 1 hour drive. Going there, I saw that it was really clean, there was a lot of trees, they had a football field, basketball courts and badminton courts, where we got excited to play with them. First we were welcomed by the people who runs the place. They gave an introduction about the Boys town, how it was built and how it is as of now. After that, all of us went to the cabins that we were assigned, in one cabin, there is about 15 people that lives there. Some of the kids in the cabin are Mac Mac, Raymond, the leader of the cabin Jimboy and more. We knew that these boys also had different chores, some had to clean the bathroom, feed the chickens, water the plants, etc. My partner in SOP is Mac Mac, he is a very joyful and a active kid, he always wants to play and he always grabs your arm when you walk. After getting to know with each other, we played basketball with them, and afterwards ate lunch that we bought from Jollibee.

                In the first day, I was still adjusting to them and we didn’t really get to interact that much, but in the second Saturday of SOP, we were able to get a long with each other already, Mac Mac always invites me to play with him, to go with him to the store and buy him soft drinks, it was really fun to see him happy when you are their because I knew that we were starting to get a long. After that the same thing happened, we played basketball, some played badminton and then we ate our lunch, this time it wasn’t that awkward anymore, we were able to talk about our selves more and we were able to interact more.

               In the third SOP, I was really disappointed because we were late, we came there at 9:30 because of the traffic. Even though I was late, I think I was able to pay back Mac Mac by playing with him and treating him at the store. Although we weren’t able to have a long time to be together, it was still fun. While eating lunch, I can see that all of us were very happy being with each other, I was really happy because we are becoming friends with them, and we just don’t help them because it was a requirement to go to SOP.

                 Finally in our last day of SOP, it was really sad because this might be the last time we would see each other, for our cabin, we bought the groceries such as toiletries, food and more. We played with each other and we ate lunch together, in the last day, it was sad to think that we won’t be going to boys town anymore, because I was already use to waking up at the morning and go to Xavier and afterwards go there. I remember that the boys said that we should come back again, and all of us agreed to them. The last day was really memorable because this was when we had most fun, we were able to really be with each other, by talking, playing and many more. 

                 I still remember before going to SOP, I was really lazy to attend it, I also judged the kids too early because I thought they were bad kids. During the SOP it so only changed and I was able to be close with them, I saw how they are different from my point of view before and I didn’t think of them as a different person to me. After SOP, I was really grateful on meeting them, I saw that even though there parents are not with them, they can still smile and be happy. I learned to be grateful about myself and how lucky I am. I also knew what was the purpose for SOP, to help these kids not only by food or material things, but also make them happy and be friends with them. I will always remember Mac Mac on how joyful he was, how playful he was and how we were able to become great friends. Although we had little time to be with each other, we were able to use our time wisely and productively to know each other and to be what we are now. SOP isn’t just any service interaction because it was one of my most memorable experience here in Xavier.

Respiratory and Circulatory System

The Respiratory System is what humans use to breathe properly. This is what we use to take in oxygen in our body that’s why it is very important for us to have this system. Without this we can’t breathe and eventually we will die. According to the article that Iv’e read, it is said their that not only us human need and have the respiratory system because animals have it too. It also said there that each cell of an animal needs oxygen which means that this system is really important, and i guess this also works for us humans because like animals we have cells. One new information Iv’e got from the article about the respiratory system is the complete process and how this system works. From the time that the oxygen goes into the nostrils until it goes to the alveoli, which are tiny, multi-lobed air sacs made up of cells. For me this new information Iv’e knew is very important for us to discover because unlike this complicated process we feel like breathing is a very easy thing to do, but if we know this process we would know that in breathing, it is a very complicated process and we would know how we breathe which is very important to us because we breathe in our everyday lives. If we know this information that Iv’e knew from this article all of us would have knowledge on how one very important thing in our lives occur. Breathing is one thing that we use to live, so it is important for us to have knowledge about how we do this and what parts of our body make this occur. All in all I think this is very important for the community because personally I really love breathing because this helps me live and I think if we know more about this we would appreciate this simple yet very important thing in our lives. From the article Iv’e read the issues that I saw were the sicknesses that occur in the respiratory system. Some sicknesses that I saw were Asthma, Laryngitis and one complication that really shocked me is hiccups. It said here that asthma is an allergic reaction that causes constriction of the bronchiole muscles which reduces the air  passages, and the air going to the alveoli. Laryngitis in the other hand is an inflammation of the vocal cords where a person partially or sometimes totally loses his/her voice. While hiccups are caused by spasms of the diaphragm thought to be caused by not enough CO2 in our bodies. There are still many more complications or sicknesses relating to the respiratory system, and for me all of us should now these because these can happen to everyone of us and it is just right to know about the possibilities of these complications. For me, my stand for this issue is to be careful and always take care of your health and body, because we can’t stop to have these kinds of sicknesses especially hiccups but all i want to say is we have to take care of our health, do not abuse our body and always be hygienic. With this tips you will surely prevent these complications in your respiratory system. We only have one respiratory system, we should take care of this because if this won’t work properly, our lives will be at stake.

RESPIR

The Circulatory System in the other hand is a system that serves to move blood to a site where it can be oxygenated and where the wastes can be disposed. The circulatory system is made out of the heart and blood vessels, including arteries, veins, and capillaries. We actually have two circulatory system in our bodies these are the pulmonary circulation a short loop from the heart to the lungs and back again, the other one is the systemic circulation, this sends blood from the heart to all the other parts of our bodies and back again. One of the most important organ in this circulatory system is the heart . The heart’s main function is to propel blood throughout the body. So generally the circulatory system is about the movement of our blood cells and the function of our heart. From this article Iv’e learned that the circulatory system is very important to us because this is what makes us live properly in our lives because, since our heart is part of this system, we need this system to live in our daily lives. This benefits our community because if we know this, we would take care of our body and this will cause us to have a healthier life. One common issue that many people have these days is having high cholesterol, and in having high cholesterol in a person’s heart  may cause major risk factor for heart disease and can lead to a heart attack. My stand for this issue is be careful with your health, take care of it, and eat food that is healthy for you. Do not eat too much food that gives you high cholesterol because if you do this you will regret it when you grow up. Take care of your body and be careful on the stakes for your health.

Tunay na Pilipino

Tunay na Pilipino

Sila’y mabait na lubos

Sa kanilang lola’t lolo

Tayo’y nagpopo at opo

Tayo ay may pusong Pinoy

Tayo’y mga mabubuti

Dapat tayo ay gayahin

Ako’y isang Pilipino

Dito sa Pilipinas

Dito sa Pilipinas

By Martin Uy

 

Dito sa Pilipinas

Tayong lahat ay bayani

Sa ating katapangan

Walang makakalamang

 

Bata man o matanda

Isang totoong bayani

Maliit man and iyong ginagawa

Ok na ok pa rin

 

Mahirap o Mayaman

Kayang Kayang lumaban

Kailangan lang ng mabuting puso

At  determinasyong manalo

 

Tayong Pilipino

Tayong mananalo

Sa ating katapangan

Kabayanihan ating makakamtan
