Susan Boyle, NBA, and Freebies: Losses and Gains

Kakaiba ang hatak ng mga awit ng kuliglig-lupa, kalabaw, uwak, agos ng ilog sa Barrio. Imbes na doon muna mamasyal sa Mall of Asia ng mga balita gaya ng PDI o Philstar, agad napadpad sa Barrio Siete ang isdang ito. Agad, isang hampas ng masamang balita – talo daw si Susan Boyle, tinalo ng Diversity na sa pakiwari ko’y ang kanilang pagsasayaw ay kayang kayang gawin din ng mga taga-Ramon Magsaysay High School. Hindi ako masyadong apektado. Sapat na sa akin ang kagaya ni Susan ang mabigyan ng halaga at magkaroon ng 100 million views sa YT. Declaring the winner is just a formality kumbaga (whooo!). Panalo na si Susan Boyle sa mga milyon-milyon nyang taga-hanga. Congratulations to everyone even for this one breakthrough from a spinster.

Heto pa, isa pang talo. Kumain ng alikabok ang koponan nina Lebron James ng Cleveland Cavaliers habang humahabol sa umaatikabo,  mas agresibo at mas kapanteng laro ng Orlando Magic na pinangunahan ng mala-O’Neal na si Dwight Howard. What can I say – James remains one of the best players in the NBA playoff, naging kahanay nya si Jabbar at Jordan in most consecutive games scoring more than 25 points per game. So, it’s the familiar Lakers in the Finals against the Magic who has not been to the championship since 1995. Great games guys!

Total pasukan na, hirit ko na rin tong mga freebies. Baka naman akala ng iba si Gabo, lagi na lang si Gabo ang nalalathala. Heto, may freebie galing Adarna House, isang publishing company ng mga aklat. Nangungumbida silang mag-nominate ng mga paaralan mapa day care center, elementary public school, o barangay reading center. Magbibigay sila ng mga quality reading materials every month from June to December this year sa sinumang nominees na kaaya-aya ang mga proposal sa pag-promote ng culture of reading sa kani-kanilang paaralan. Sige, grab natin to. Baka i-nominate ko yung Mabuhay Elementary School, school ng mga kapatid ko. For full information on this project, you can visit their site here.

Sa mga nakaligta sa balitang ito, heto, another freebie from PGMA: “One town, one scholar” program:

The implementation of the program takes effect this June with 1,500 scholars receiving a grant for a four-year or five-year college degree program including free tuition, transportation and living allowance not exceeding P15,000 per semester for 2009-2010 and every year thereafter.

The scholar, however, must pass the state college or university’s entrance examination.”

Kaya lang, tapos na ang deadline ng application, screening and selection, hehe – March 1 to April 15.

Heto pa, isa pang freebie kung hindi ka nakatira sa East Timor o Denmark:

Las Piñas Mayor Vergel Aguilar is urging the city’s public high school graduates to avail themselves of the free college education program offered by the city government.

Aguilar said graduates may enroll at the newly established Dr. Filemon C. Aguilar Information Technology Training Institute, where 2,000 full scholarship slots will be made available to qualified students this school year.

Qualified scholars may enroll in courses like web development, graphic design and animation, and networking professional and programming.

Mga taga-Barrio Siete, wag na munang mag-react. Dadagdagan din daw nila eventually ng social climbing course haha.
