Cyber Exploration ( First Part)

Kelan ba nag umpisa ang lahat? halos isang dekada na ang nakakaraan.. mula ng matutong gumamit ng computer si caretaker. Sa umpisa ninais lang niya na magkaroon ng kaunting kaalaman sa paggamit ng computer. Naalala niya nung mga unang pagkakataon na siya ay gumamit nito.. halos masira ang kanyang ulo ka sa kakaisip kung ano at paano ang gagawin kapag nagkamali siya ng kanyang napindot sa keypad at may kakaibang nakita sa monitor. Parte na siguro yung ng kanyang pag e explore. Naisip niya, kailangan niyang matutong gumamit nito upang mapadali ang kanyang trabaho at para maging updated na rin sa takbo ng makabagong teknolohiya. May mga pagkakataon din gumagastos siya ng malaking halaga para lang bumili ng mga gamit sa kanyang computer gaya ng printer, speaker, mga harware devices gaya ng camera at head set.

Sa umpisa, inakala niya na ang paggamit ng computer isa lamang paraan upang mapadali ang kanyang gawain. Dito nag umpisa ang lahat. INTERNET... isang kakaibang bagay na natutunan ni caretaker sa paggamit ng computer. Bago pa lang siyang natututong gumamit ng computer ay nadidinig na niya ang salitang ito at hindi niya gaanong binigyang pansin ito sapagkat nakatuon lang siya sa kung paano ito gagamitin . Palibhasa'y bagong bagay ito para sa kanya, naging masidhi ang ang kanyang hangarin na matuto ng bagay na ito.

Ang yahoo messenger ang nagmulat sa kanya ng mga bagay na hindi sa tanang buhay niya ay hindi niya akalaing kanyang mararanas. Si caretaker kasi isang typical na late bloomer pag dating sa ganitong larangan...Kasabay ng pagkakaroon ng cellphone, isang bagay na kung saan mapapadali ang pakikipagkomunikasyon ito'y maari din niyang magamit upang makipag meet up sa mga taong kanyang makikilala sa internet.

Ang yahoo chat room ang isa sa madalas niyang pinapasukan tuwing siya ay nag oonline sa yahoo messenger... dito sa room na ito niya nakilala ang ibat ibang uri ng mga tao na ang tanging dahilan ng pagpasok sa room na iyon ay pawang kamunduhan lamang.

when it rains... it pours.....

the last blog i posted here was about my bad experience i had last wednesday.... now another terrible experience.. just happened to me this morning....

before i go to sleep... usually have chats with my friends... either by phone or by text messages.. and i see to it before get off from my bed... the first thing i do is to look for my cellphone... to find out if there are unread text messages received...

this morning.... it was a shocking experience... my cellphones... two cellphones were gone 3350 and nokia 6085.... and nowhere to be found... as far as i remember... before i go to sleep last night... they were beside me... which i usually do... put them beside me... and sometimes use them as my alarm clock... but since it is saturday the next morning.. i did not set the alarm...

i immediately get off form my bed.... asked my mom if she had seen my cellphones... i tried calling my cellphone using my landline... at first.. somebody answered .. a voice of a man... then... he immediately turned it off... the next thing i've heard was the voice prompt which says.."the number you dialed cannot be reached"....

when i looked around... i realized... somebody might have stolen the cellphone from my window... and looking at the back yard... my mom noticed that traces of footsteps were found in the floor and my window was widely opened and there was a stick also found...which was used to get my cellphone.. since my bed is just adjacent to my windows...

we already reported the incident to the authority....

OMG!..... another cellphones were lost...

Really... when it rains... it pours!!! "Pag inabot ka nga naman ng kamalasan...."

A bad day for me... NADUKUTAN AKO!!!

Last wednesday i rode on a jeep... from east avenue going to philcoa...there were four guys who rode with me... nauna lang ako ng konti sa kanila... may may napansin akong kakaiba... pero binalewala ko lang.. one of the four guys who sat beside me... ginigit git ako sa upuan...... i just looked at him... he was about in his 40's... i was not aware.... dinidukutan na pala ako... before i get off from the jeepney it's usually my habit of checking my wallet in my pocket .... napansin ko yung wallet ko nauupuan ko na... nagpasalamat pa nga ako at buti na lang hindi nawala yung wallet ko.... and i didn't look what's inside my wallet.

The next day.... my friend told me.. he was a victim of pickpocketing... his wallet was slashed off and his money were taken without him noticing it. His wallet was left with him without his money... I was even proud to tell him that I almost got the same experience... but to my surprise... i was really a victim too... it was only today that i've realized that the incident last wednesday proved that i was a victim too when i looked for the money i have in my wallet... My God! I've lost P3,500.... The money i've been keeping... it's gone! I've realized... one of the guys who sat beside me was the one who stole my money... after getting all my money... he left my wallet.... that's the time where i've noticed my wallet was no longer inside my pocket. Nadukutan na pala ako...

It's a new modus operandi... dudukutan kayo ng wallet .. kukunin ang lamang pera at iiwan sa inyo ang wallet niyo.........INGAT KAYO MGA PARE.....

Ang mga kalaro ko noon, , , , (adapted)

Ang mga kalaro ko noon....


1950's, 60's and 70's !!

some of us survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. ( sioktong ang inumin)

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, fish from a can ( brand : ligo ), and didn't get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright colored lead-based paints, pati na yung laruang kabayu-kabayuhan.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, no kneepads , sometimes wala ngang preno yung bisikleta.

As children, we would ride in car with no seat belts or air bags – hanggang ngayon naman, di ba ? ( jeep )

Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat. ( maykaya kayo pare ! )

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle ( minsan straight from the faucet)

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this. Or contacted hepatitis.

We ate rice with tinunaw na purico ( dahil ubos na ang star margarine), nutribuns na galing kay macoy and drank sopdrinks with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight kasi nga..... .


We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. Sarap mag patintero, tumbang preso , habulan taguan….

No one was able to reach us all day ( di uso ang celfon , walang beepers ). And we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our trolleys or slides out of scraps and then ride down the street, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, (Atarri uso noon, mayaman ka na pag meron ka nun) Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable (5 channels lang ang TV noon) , no video tape movies, no surround sound, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms....... ...WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no

lawsuits from these accidents
. The only rubbing we get is from our friends with the words…..masakit ba ? pero pag galit yung kalaro mo,,,,ang sasabihin sa iyo…..beh buti nga !

We play in the dirt , wash our hands a little and ate with our barehands…we were not afraid of getting worms in our stomachs.

We have to live with homemade guns – gawa sa kahoy, tinali ng rubberband , sumpit , tirador at kung ano ano pa na puedeng makasakit…..pero walang nagrereklamo.

made up games with sticks
( syatong )and cans ( tumbang preso )and although we were told it would happen, wala naman tayong binulag o napatay….paminsan minsan may nabubukulan.

We r ode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them!

Mini basketball teams had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Walang sumasama ang loob.

Ang magulang ay nandoon lang para tignan kung ayos lang ang bata….hindi para makialam.

This generation
of ours has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and managers ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned



And YOU are one of them!


You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the government regulated our lives for our own good.

and while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it?!

PS - The big type is because your eyes
may not be able to read this…. at your age

ok lang ba kaibingan?

pakipasa nga ito sa mga tunay mo na kaibingan para makaalaala pa

nakaka enjoy pala... nakakaaliw!!!

sa tinagal tagal ko na dito sa net... ngayon ko lang na nadiskubre itong pag gagawa ng tinatawag na "blog".. nung una.. na bago sa pandinig ko ang salitang "blog"... tanong ko sa sarili ko... "anon yun? mag nahulog? at ang tunogn ng pagbagsak ay "BLOG!!!!"? (korni! hehehe).. pero walang halong biro... ngayon ay naaliw ako sa ganitong bagay.. ang paggawa ng tinatawag na blog...

pasalamat ako sa isang kaibigan na mula rin dito sa net... ipinagkatiwala niya sa akin ang isang sekreto na iilang tao lamang ang nakakaalam.... ang kanyang blog... salamat kaibigan... laging kong sinusubaybayan ang mga pangyayari sa iyong buhay sa pamamagitan ng iyong blog..

ngayon na marunong na akong gumawa ng sarili kong blog... dito ko ibubuhos lahat ng mga saloobin ko.. laman ng aking puso't isipan... na hindi ko maaring isiwalat sa "real world" ko... mga sekretong tanging ako lamang ang nakakaalam... maaring mabasa din ng iba... pero sigurado akong hindi niya ako kilala sa tunay na mundo na aking ginagalawan...

sana sa mga makakabasa nito... makapulot din kayo ng mga magagandang aral (kung meron man) at huwag mag atubiling magbigay ng inyong mga komento...

walang nagawa kundi sumunod...

kaninang umaga nung ginawa ko yung blog ko tungkol sa plano ko para sa araw na ito... nasabi ko sa sarili ko na hindi ako pupunta doon sa Palmera Springs kung saan andoon ang father ko at yung karpintero na gumagawa ng bahay ng kuya ko... balak ko sanang manatili na lang dito sa bahay maghapon... o kaya umalis at pumunta kung saan.. pero ngunit.. datapwat.. subalit... ang aking ina ay pinakiusapan akong ihatid doon sa lugar na iyon ang pagkaing tanghalian ng aking ama at ng karpintero...

"Aalis ka ba?" tanong sa akin ng aking ina..

"Hindi... Bakit?"tugon ko..

"Ihatid mo itong pagkain sa ama mo. Mamaya pa ako pupunta doon.. 40 days ng kamatayan ng Uncle Faustino mo ngayon.. dadaan muna ako doon bago ako punta ng Palmera"Pakiusap sa akin ng aking ina.

Gustuhin ko man tumanggi... wala naman akong magagawa kundi sumunod... kung hindi.. wala silang kakainin.. Maagang umalis ang aking ama nang hindi nag aalmusal... Tiyak na gutom na iyon...

Hindi ko pa natatapos ang una kong blog nang ako pakiusapan ng aking ina.. Habang tinitipa ko ang huling blog ko kanina... nasa isip ko pa din ang plano ko sana na manatili na lang dito sa bahay at magpahinga at matulog na lang sa sana.. pero yun nga... dahil sa pakiusap ng aking ina... wala akong nagawa kundi sumunod...

a lazy morning...

i woke up at about 8:30 in the morning and start thinking of what lies ahead of me this day.. as soon as i raised my body from bed.. i went to the bathroom and take a splash of water onto my face.. looking at the mirror.... i was thinking of my plans for the whole day... will i go somewhere? or will i just stay home? i dont know... bahala na si Batman!

as i went out of the comfort room... i saw my mom in the kitchen.. preparing for our break fast.. i asked her the whereabouts of my dad. "Nay, nasan si Tatay?" "nasa Palmera ( subdivision somewhere in Caloocan where my brother's house is located) pinagagawa yung bahay ng kuya mo. Kasama si Mang Romy ( the carpenter)" she answered back. "Kanina pa ba siya umalis?" I asked her. " Mga alas siete ata... maagang umalis baka daw matrapik... doon na lang sila magkikita ni Mang Romy" she replied.

i was thinking of going to that place later... but due to my experience yesterday when we went there.. it was terribly a bad day for me...the traffic... the heavy down pour of rain....the dirt i got in carrying hallow blocks and gravel and sand and the heavy bag of cement which i carried onto my shoulder... wheew! ...... right now i am having a second thought if i will go or not.

i went to living room to look for the tabloid which my father usually reas in the morning... the latest news... the headlines... politics... and the showbiz news.... i read for a while... some news... and after the tabloid... here i am in front of the computer... typing this blog... and still thinking of what to do for the rest of the day..

3some? how does it feel like?

while chatting with friends from g4m... one of them asked if we could try 3some.... never in my life had i tried it before.... i usually have it one-on-one... but this time... 3some? hmmmm sounds interesting... hehehe... we were on the height of negotiation .. me and the other member who is about my age... we were trying to convince this younger guy who is just about his 20's... a bottom guy... and finally he agreed... the other member willingly offered his place somewhere in Tomas Morato.. in Quezon City... He already gave the direction on how to go to his place... his contact number.. and scheduled the time at exactly 9:00 pm... then all of the sudden... this younger guy logged out... without confirming if he will go or not... i just don't know if he was just afraid of what might happen to him or he was just accidentally disconnected from the net..

when i sent sms with this younger guy.. he confirmed that he was just disconnected and wont be able to go back again to the net... but he assured me that he's willing to go to the said agreement... the 3some stuff... only.. not tonight but tomorrow night...

i texted the other guy... he said that the place is no longer available tomorrow... and he has other plans for tomorrow night...

sayang.... ngayon pa lang sana ako makakaranas ng 3some... hehehe

ang hirap ng walang ginagawa

sa mga pagkakataong wala akong ginagawa...lalo na kung araw ng sabado at linggo kung kelan wala akong pasok... minsan naiisip ko.. paano ko palilipasin ang buong araw na magiging produktibo ako... pagkagising ko sa umaga....maliligo...kakain ng almusal... mag bubukas ng pc... check kung sino online sa YM at sa sa titingnan kung may email sa yahoo at message sa friendster...

ganito na lang lagi ang ginagawa ko sa tuwing araw ng sabado at linggo... haaayyy... paano nga ba? ganito na lang ba ako lagi?....
