April fools!

Apr 8, 2017

Fools! April Fools’ Day! Good gracious is it today? I guess not, that was last week and today is Araw ng Kagitingan. By the way, all entrance going to Baguio is closed not until prior notice.

Now going back, April 1 is what they called “April Fools’ Day” no one is really sure when it all started, some said during the 1500 when in most European towns thought that April was actually the start of the New Year. But then Pope Gregory XIII ordered a new calendar to replace the old Julian calendar to Gregorian indicating January 1 as New Year.

In France, the victim of the prank or joke is usually called “Poisson d’Avril!” an April Fish refers to a young fish, thus one easily caught. Hep! Sabi nga ng isang sikat na kasabihan “Walang sikretong hindi nabubunyag” lalo pa at pansariling interest lamang pala ang hangad. Kaya sige na, sasabihin ko po ang totoo bago ko pa makalimutan. Open po lahat ng road going to Baguio City it is not as if gagawin ng miyembro ng BLISTT ang pagsara ng road dahil lang sa Truck Ban na ipinanukala ng siyudad ng Baguio upang matugunan ang problema sa traffic. Walang ganun! Pero come to think of it.

Some vegetables ng Baguio ay galing sa Benguet na ikinasikat nito. Ang bulaklak ng Baguio ay galing sa Benguet na ikinakilala nito sa buong mundo (Baguio Flower Festival). Ang ilang daan ng turista papuntang Baguio ay Benguet na ikinayaman nito. Nasaan ang pagkakaisa ng BLISTT na ngayon ay BLISTTDA (Baguio, La Trinidad, Itogon, Sablan, Tuba, Tublay Development Authority) na pilit isinusulong kung ang malaking bagay na ikinabubuhay ng bawat partido ay ipinagkakait? Laking pasalamat ng Sanggunian ng La Trinidad at nang ama ng munisipyo na si Romeo K. Salda na na-suspend ito ng 10 days thru City Mayor Mauricio Domogan. Ngunit sa ginawang proposed resolution ng LT umaasa sila sa another suspension at exemptions ng perishable goods sa malawakang kaisipan at ma-amend ito. Konsultasyon lamang naman ang hiling ng kabila, mahirap bang ipaalam ang importanteng City Ordinance na ito sa mga munisipyong apektado bago naipasa sa Sangunniang Panglungsod ng Baguio? Ito ang mga usapin sa aking paligid mga Kadungngo-dungngo, habang nagkakape ako ng Benguet Coffee sa Benguet Agri-Pinoy Trading Center o BAPTC Restaurant na nagbigay idea sa isusulat na column para sa linggong ito. Hindi pwedeng hindi tayo ma-involve dahil paikot-ikotin mo man ang usapan involved tayo rito! FYI Farmers Feed the Nation! Keep that in mind. Kumakain ka ng gulay o bumibili ka ba ng bulaklak? At marami pang ibang dahilan. Truck nga ba ang problema sa traffic o bastos at barumbadong driver (hindi po nilalahat) ang dapat madisiplina?

Ngayon madako naman tayo sa isang lyrics naman na awitin ni Troye Sivan entitled Fools dahil Fool naman talaga ang tema ngayong Sunday ng column na ito, Abril nga diba! Sabi dun “Our lives don’t collide, I’m aware of this. We’ve got differences and impulses and your obsessions with… Oh only Fools fall for you”.

Sa salita naman ng Diyos sa Bibliya (KJV) Ecclesiastes 10:12-14 “The words of a wise man’s mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself. The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness: and the end of his talk is mischievous madness. A fool is dull of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell?” No one knows what will happen in the future. Let’s just hope not to be fooled by foolish people only thinking of their own interest. Kadungngo-dungngo, nasaan na ang Kagitingan na ipinamalas na kaugalian ng ating kanunu-nunuan kung kapwa natin Pinoy ay kalaban. Ayan nan: ti panagtinnunos nga agtrabaho mangiturong iti panagprogreso?
