T.G.I.B. (Thanks God I'm Busy)


Sa ngayon ay inihanda ko na ang aking desktop. Bilang paghahanda, tinanggal ko muna ang aero features nito at ginawa ko ring standard ang window. Sayang din kasi ang resources na kinakain ng mga ito.

Nagpapasalamat ako sa Diyos dahil sa lahat ng biyayang aking natatanggap. Hindi man nya ako pinapayaman, ay binibigyan naman nya ako lagi ng bagong karunungan na magagamit ko sa aking pang araw-araw na pamumuhay. Pamumuhay na kailanman ay hindi naging kabagot-bagot bagkus ay laging may pinagkakaabalahan. Ako kasi yung tipo ng lalaki na medyo bastos (err) tsuri, ako pala yung tipo ng tao na hindi mapakali kapag walang ginagawa. Madalas nga ay sinasabihan ako ng aking mahal na asawa na magpahinga naman. Minsan kasi habang nagpapahinga ako ay kumukuha naman ako ng libro or magazine upang basahin. Kaya't parang hindi rin ako nakakapag-pahinga. Pero gusto ko ang ganitong pamumuhay, at minsan ay naiisip ko na tama nga siguro ang opinyon nila tungkol sa akin na mayroon yata akong A.D.H.D. Hindi ko alam, baka nga.

Kung mayroon man, dapat ko ba itong ika-lungkot o ika-galak? ayon sa aking mga nabasa, kabilang ang mga sikat na personalidad sina Michael Jordan, Albert Einstein, Tiger Woods, Yngwie Malmsteen at iba pa. Silang mga nanguna sa kanilang mga piniling tahakin na landas. Ngunit ako? Hindi siguro... malayong-malayo pa ang aking lalakbayin. Naalala ko tuloy ang isang artikulong isinulat ng aking sinusubaybayang blogista na si Dr. RJ. Sa kanyang Chook-Minders Quill, nailathala ang Byaheng Langit. Marahil ay isa rin ako sa mga balahibong nililipad ng hangin na hindi alam kung saan papunta, napakarami kong landas na natatahak. Nandyan ang Graphics Design, Web Development, Photography, Music, Sports at "poging" (err) tsuri ulit, "pagiging" isang Guro. Katulad ng isang balahibo, kung saan-saan ako napapadpad. Hindi katulad ng iba na parang rocket na diretso lamang ang lipad at alam ang tinatahak na landas diretso sa target o pupuntahan ng mabilis at mataas.

Ngunit kahit ganito, masaya naman ako. Naeenjoy ko rin naman kahit papaano ang aking paglalakbay. Tulad ngayon, Marahil ay magiging kaunti ang aking oras sa pagsulat dito sa aking blog at sa pagtugtog ng aking bagong gitara. Mayroon kasing tatlong proyekto ang nakapila sa akin. Tatlong website ang aking gagawin na uubos ng aking oras. Masayang masaya ako ngayon dahil bilang isang guro, mayroon pa akong ibang pagkakakitaan. Unti-unti narin akong nakikilala ng mga kliyente upang irekomenda para sa serbisyong kailangan nila tulad ng pagpapa-ayos ng computer, pag-gawa ng disenyo ng tarpaulin para sa kanilang mga espesyal na kaganapan, at ngayon nga ay nagpapagawa narin sila ng website. Kahit na magiging abala ako, masaya naman. Hindi man malaki ang aking kinikita sa pagiging guro, hindi naman mababayaran ang respetong aking nakukuha mula sa iba't-ibang tao na aking pinaglilingkuran. Sana ay dumami pa ang proyekto at sana ay bigyan ako ng sapat na lakas at kaalaman upang makapaglingkod ng maayos at masaya. Ngunit sa kabila nito, magiging bihira na nga akong makasubay-bay sa mga blog. Pero pipilitin ko parin na sumilip-silip dahil masaya rin ako kapag nababasa ko ang mga artikulo nila.

My First Video Guitar Ever


This is my first guitar video ever. After 9 years without practice, back to start ako... Canon rock by Jerry C has caught the attention of guitar geeks around the globe, I really like that piece, so I started learning it just after I bought my own guitar last month. After work, I spend an hour to practice my guitar to unleashed the stress...

Hopefully mabuo ko na 'tong canon rock, I really enjoy playing this classical piece.

Official Site of BCLP?

This is the website that I have created for Barangay Computer Literacy Program. A program of the City Government of Pasig that offers free computer training for its residents. Yes, I'm part of it. I'm one of the computer instructor of BCLP.

This log is just the story behind what made me create this website, and not about the BCLP itself. For more information regarding the program, feel free to visit www.bclp.site50.net.

Ok, so what made me decide to create this website...? This programs was established 1999, and has been a great help for Pasig City residents who want to learn computer. Especially to college graduates that are not computer literate or just wants to know more about the current technology. For eight years, this program continues to grow, and it now offers four different levels officially. Advanced levels that are included are web page design and Photoshop. But I am wondering, because for so many years, this program do not have any online presence. "Naturingang Computer Training Center... walang website...".

One time, the City Government of Pasig held an exhibit that showcases the different office in its City Hall. So, as part of that, our office (BCLP) is also one of the participants. On a meeting with all the BCLP instructors, we talked about the preparation for that upcoming exhibit. One of my co-instructor volunteers himself to create a program that will showcase our service. He called it "Interactive Information Kiosk". So as part of the team, I asked him about the detail. I asked him what application he will use, what programming language or script, what will make it "Interactive" and on what form will he published that so called "his program". Although he is answering with so many words, the informations are not clear. It's like, he does not know what he's saying.... so I cleared it myself until we came at the decision to create a website that are installed on a web server on a local computer to be displayed on the exhibit.

But it doesn't ended on that, the website should also be published on the web. The problem is, no one knows how to do that except for me. So I accepted the responsibility on creating the BCLP website for free even if it is beyond my duties and responsibilities as a BCLP Instructor for the sake of that exhibit. "Napasubo na 'ko..." I only have a week to develop the website. To finished the website in a short period of time all by myself, I decided not to optimized the images to be used. Just before the exhibit, the www.bclp.site50.net goes online and can be viewed using different web browser.

"Pero sana hindi nalang ako nag-usisa, wala rin naman akong napala... "
