SOLDIERS ARE BRAVE :)

ALFREDO LEONILLO
Born: May 12, 1991
Died: June 13, 2012

Choosing to be in a Military is accepting the fact that your life is going to be in serious danger.  It’s like your one feet is in the grave. you were either going to die, or be seriously injured. All soldiers are brave as much as they face unpleasant and dangerous conditions with courage.

I often hear about a lot of soldiers not only in this country going through a battle and die. They are fighting for the world peace. Never knowing that they might be going to rest in peace too. LOL (kidding) Especially in Mindanao.  As we all know there is still a turmoil going on in some places in Mindanao.

Some soldiers die in a battle, ambush, etc. They always appoint those new and young soldiers to fight and i didn’t expect that my young cousin will be one of those soldier victims, killed by the NPA.

they were killed  in an encounter with communist rebels in Albay early Wednesday, june 13, 2012.

here is the report:

Citing reports from Lieutenant Colonel Audrey Pacia of the 2nd Infantry Battalion, Major Harold Cabunoc said the two were killed by suspected members of the New People’s Army (NPA)while doing security operations in Sinungtan village in Guinobatan town at 12:50 a.m.

The soldiers were identified as Privates First Class Jayvi Villagomez and Alfredo Leonillo Jr. They sustained fatal gunshots.

It was believed that the attack was in retaliation of the arrest of Carlito Rebamba known as Ka Renan of the NPA in Tastas village, Ligao City last June 9.

Renan has a warrant of arrest for a series of murders and burning a police station in Pio Duran.

But Chief Inspector Pico B. Valencia Jr., Guinobatan police chief, had different version of the story when interviewed by the Philippine Daily Inquirer by phone.

“We received the report and we immediately proceeded to the site and recovered the cadavers. Further investigations are being undertaken to identify the suspect who had fled right after the killing,” Valencia said.

He said Leonilo and Villagomez were buying cigarettes at a nearby store during a pre-fiesta dance festival in the village when the gunman approached both soldiers and shot them in the head.

The soldiers reportedly tried to go for their guns but the gunman beat them to the draw.

Four slugs and seven empty shells, apparently from a .45 cal. pistol, were recovered at the scene.

Valencia said the incident apparently went unnoticed by revelers because the blaring music at a dance hall some 20 meters from the crime scene muffled the gunshots.

The NPA is the armed unit of the Communist Party of the Philippines, and has been waging an insurgency since 1969.

it is really a heartbreak losing one of your loveones but no choice but to accept it and life must go on. cuz, i want to thank you for all the unforgettable childhood memories. you’ll be missed and until we meet again. may you rest in peace and praying for your soul. we love you cousin.

The end or the Beginning?

It was our graduation day at PICC last March 26, 2012.

Seriously, i wasn’t really that excited for it. I’m not that satisfied to graduate without an award. ahaha

Though, we, my other classmates knew that some of our classmates who had awards are not deserving. Well, that’s life.  Bawi nalang sa Career!

It is a very delightful feeling to graduate with Information Technology and Systems. After all those sleepless nights i experienced just to finish our projects, System Designs, Documentations, Feasibilities, Journals, and etc. Finally, I surpassed my four year college course. There was never really a sad moment during our graduation ceremony. Everyone looked so happy wearing their Togas. Nakakatuwang isipin na kahit marami kang kalokohang ginawa sa college life mo eh makakagraduate ka pa din. 🙂 Nandun yung mangongopya ka ng assignments, iibahin mo yung font ng gawa ng classmate mo, manghihiram ng USB sabay copy paste ng assignments, manggagaya ng system designs may maidagdag lang, uupo ka sa dulo ng classroom kasi binabalak mong matulog, magccr sa kalagitnaan ng klase para magkape/milo sa canteen at marami pang iba. Marami din akong ginawang kalokohan. But i’m proud to say, my grades are really the fruit of my hardwork. 🙂 Di ako nangopya during exams on audit. (But then, i let others copy my answers kasi delikado silang di makagraduate). Di din ako nagpalit ng pangalan sa scantron. 🙂 LOLS. Marami kasing lokong student samin na ginagwa ang maraming karumaldumal na bagay makapasa lang. Okay na sana yung mangongopya ka lang sa katabi mo, pero beyond that. Parang foul. Sabi nga nila. “Wala namang GARAPALAN”.


well basta, Thanks God talaga. 🙂

please give me career asap na. hehe

For the great and ever loved Grandmother, Inang.


FAREWELL GREAT GRANDMA 😦 

It is rather hard to come into terms with grief. No matter what your mind says, your heart still aches. I for one cannot see death as a celebration, no matter what the circumstances may be.
My grandmother just passed away at 84 and although in my mind I know that this is probably better, my heart says it is too soon. It wants to hold on to a crazy thought that she is still alive and that she is right there in her humble home waiting for me to come and visit her.

Inang, as I fondly call her, is one strong woman who raised four boys and two girls. She was a character of her own which makes her more adorable and loved by all. When I was a little kid, she used to tell me us kids stories about princesses and their stone castles, about mermaids and how they come out at night and try to seduce young wanderers, about dragons, and magic and all these elaborate stories that enthralls a young mind. Every night after dinner, as we lay down on the wooden floor waiting for the gas lamp to go out, she will tell wondrous stories that would rival Aesop’s. As an adult, I thought to myself, she must have been a well-read woman or she just have that good of an imagination.

Inang, my heat is in sorrow of the thought that when I do go and visit your home,  you would no longer be there waiting for me by the front door ready to shower me with kisses and the warmest embrace. There were so many things that I wanted to do more with you but mostly I wanted to hug you more and let you know how much I love you. I wanted to thank you for all the things you have taught me and for all the love you showered me. I wanted to hear more of your stories on how the mermaid down the river comes out at night and sings her lullabies. I wanted to play more Forty One with you although you claim that you can not differentiate the Ace of Hearts from the Ace of Diamonds.

You have such a great impact on my life that I want you to know, your legacy, grace and beauty will be forever with me. I will always remember that this life is more wonderful and beautiful because you at the most part, you were right in the center of it. I will make sure that when I do tell my future daughter the tale of the mermaid by the river, I will let her know that that story came from you so that hopefully when she has her own, she will also do the same.

Now that you are leaving us forever, it is with all the sadness that I say my last good bye. Hopefully, you knew in your heart that you are a well-loved mother and grandmother but in case you never knew it, I am letting you know, we love you so much Inang. Rest in the hands of God.

CHILDHOOD (Once upon a time, lalake ako) LOL

MY CHILDHOOD

my childhood was the time when i was innocent
when the world seemed to be fair
when my universe was around my toys

my childhood was the time when i lived in dreams
when everyone was selfless 
when everyone appeared to be a friend

my childhood was the time when my life was full of colours
when sorrows never knocked my door
when smile was gift presented to everyone

my childhood was the time when love was pure
when there were no obligations
when tenderness prevailed

my childhood was the time which is long gone
tears flow from my eyes when i go back in my childhood
my childhood will never come back but 
the child in me will never go…

 

MOVING ON :)

The hardest part of being in love is when we begin to hang loosely on one end without knowing what exactly is happening on the other end. Not all vows are made in heaven. There are many who break their promises of  forever and leave their partners crying and hurting.

Don’t waste your emotions on someone who doesn’t even care about how you feel. Let your heart find love again. Slowly move out of his circle and be free. Give yourself the chance meet new acquaintances enjoy new friendships and explore the possibility of finding someone who would love you sincerely. Someone you can share your dreams and maybe, forever.
