Nothing Much Has Changed

You know, I love my Philippines!!! I wouldn’t want to trade it for any other country, except for England, Australia and Italy LOL. Seriously, I love my country so much that it hurts me to see that after all these years, walang masyadong nagbago – it has suffered so much and continues to suffer even more day by day from too much poverty and oppression. Yeah, just like most of you, pinangarap ko din na mag-abroad. Sasakay na lang ako ng eroplano nang biglang mapag de-desisyunan ko na umuwi na lang sa bahay LOL. All together now…charing! Pero trulala, walang eklavu, mahal na mahal ko ang Pilipinas.

I am sharing to you these 1941-1942 pictures by Carl Mydans (thank you Ruthie) and I want you to look closely, feel them and then see how much we have changed all these years. Take note, 1940’s pa ang mga pictures na to. Makikita nyo, mula noon hanggang ngayon, wala namang masyadong pagbabago.

many Filipino children are still deprived of EDUCATION

mataas na bilang ng UNEMPLOYMENT kaya madaming peddlers here there and everywhere ang nagtya-tyaga sa kakarampot na kita

Hanggang kailan kaya tayo alipin ng mga banyaga? Can you imagine, kung mga Amerikano ang babysitter ng mga anak nyo?

hinde masyadong nagbago ang fashion dahil sa totoo lang, ganyan pa din ang damit ng lola at lolo ko…at ganyang ganyan pa din ang kalsada sa Barrio namin

Ang lata ng FITA, napaka useful talaga.

hinde pa din hitech ang mga bukirin. Iilang magsasaka ba ang may kuliglig farm machines? Kawawa naman ang mga kalabaw, baka akala nyo kalabaw lang yan, hoy napapagod din ang mga yan LOL

Ayuda por favor mi amiga en amigo!!! hinde pa din nagbabago ang sistema ng ELEKSYON, napansin nyo? Uso pa din ang MANILA PAPER ELECTION. Hellow, may mga computers na, may broadband, T1, fiber optic, 3G, Bluetooth at GPS!!!

tuyo, noodles at ligo….mga pagkain ng mahihirap

It hurts me to see street children everywhere, they represent the real socio-economic condition of our country. Nakaka guilty that you can eat several times a day while these kids have never known anything else but poverty, and are lucky to even eat one meal a day.

Child labor. Do you recognize that smile? Very effective and contagious di ba, typical Pinoy, kahit hirap na hirap na, nakangiti pa din. Ok back to child labor, I was lucky that I didn’t have to go through this…pero madami dyan who even go through child prostitution

madami pa din ang tambay sa kanto, naghihintay ng grasya

wag na kayong magmaktol, after 2 weeks, tinawagan na daw ni Obama si Arroyo, tuta pa rin tayo ng mga Amerikano

Inadequate healthcare system and facilities. Noong huli kong punta sa Fabella, I swear, ganito ang nadatnan ko.

May mga socialites…

at syempre, mga jologs. The Great Philippine Divide. Kahit sa blogosphere uso yan eh.

At higit sa lahat, tulog na tulog pa din sa JUAN TAMAD.

If this doesn’t break your heart, believe me, nothing will.

My gulaaay!!! 66 years and yet, walang pagbabago. I still hope that one day, every Filipino will unite and stand up together as one nation. Utang na loob, hinde ba kayo nagsasawa sa poverty?? Wala ba talagang honest and good leaders na pwedeng mag stand up to lead our nation?  Just like Reynz, gusto ko na din tuloy tumakbong presidente. Kung wala talagang matinong leader, fwez, let’s do our part and help our ailing nation.  Umpisahan ang pagbabago sa sarili. Bumangon kayong mga walang tinamo kundi kapaitan at umaasa sa lubos na kaginhawaan, humayo kayo at ibangon ang naabang bayan! Sugpuin ang crab mentality, ang kawalan ng disiplina kahit na sa napaka simpleng bagay like pagtapon ng balat ng kendi sa loob ng jeep at puksain ang graft and corruption! Hinde ko to kayang mag-isa, kelangan ko ng tulong nyo LOL.

  1. ateng great eye openner to sa mga pinoy…buti nalang ako at indi ako naging juan tamad..atleast nakaka ahon na din pamilya ko sa kahirapan…kaya ko nang manampal ng tao at bayaran para tumahimik..ajajjaa.joke…

    anyway, ganyang year ka pinanganak no?ahahhaaa :em33:

  2. I like this post.. ganda ng pics.. eye opener talaga!! San mo ‘to nakuha?

    “Ang lata ng FITA, napaka useful talaga.” — correctness! Pati na rin yung MANILA PAPER ELECTION.. so true!

    And I agree, contagious talaga ang smile ni boy.. pwede pang friendster :em32:

  3. ang ganda malen ng post mo. Gagayahin ko to. matagal na ako naghahanap ng picture ng pilipinas nung pre war at war era. I don’t no but I feel i want to get back on that era kasi yun yung time na pinanganak ang parents ko. I want to experience being in the 40’s philippines.

    Sa sobrang linaw at ganda ng mga pictures na pinost mo, akala ko talaga fake yung iba at kinunan lang ngayon. Like the man with the fita can, the onyoc velasco smile look-alike, yung magasawang tindera at yung dalawang tambay.

    ganun din pala hitsura ng mga pinoy noon ano?

    Some of these people might still be alive especially the kids on the pics

  4. sabi nung prof. ko sa nstp.
    may sinabi sa kanya yung prof nung nag-aaral pa siya.
    ang sabi
    bat daw tayo nagpaskop sa america at sa iba pang bansa na sumakop sa atin.
    dpat daw nagpasakop tayo sa mga tiga-ENGLAND.
    kasi sa laht ng nasakop ng bansang iyon ay patuloy nilang tinutulungan ngayon.
    katulad ng HONGKONG!
    pero kaya natin magbago.
    mag-aantay lang tayo.
    :em41:

  5. You know I find it funny that a Taiwanese client just said to me about our country, she said,

    “Me and my husband do a lot of travelling in the Philippines, been there many times, I love your country, your friendliness, happy people, the beaches, english speaking from school kids to adults, just forget about the traffic, poverty and you should have another Marcos because they made you one famous country in the world”.

    I was like… “he’s dead”.

  6. I so totally agree with you Malen. It’s time for change! BIG CHANGE! Kailangan nating magbalikatan upang mai-upgrade naman natin ang kawawa nating bayan! Ano ba? Ang Japan maunlad na, Vietnam – sobrang lampas na sa atin…

    Talagang kailangan na nating pag-isipan kung sino ang iboboto natin sa 2010~!! The US made their mark..

    Kailangan tayo din!! Think of who’s worthy to take us to the next level diba?? Sen. Kiko Pangilinan ba? Let’s get the movement going no?!

    IT’S TIME FOR CHANGE!!!!

  7. The Freedom of Speech, although a beautiful law that protects citizen to express concern against government corruption and allows us to state our opinion without fear,We as the citizen of our beloved country Philippines have the right to oppose the on going signature drive in Congress to amend the constitution.We the Filipino people is the fourth branches of government and our voices must be heard.

    Start up your computer and start writing your opposition on this Charter Change. Web logging and blogging has long been praised and employed by members of the Arroyo opposition. Most would be surprised and should be concerned that many web log contributors are silent army armed only with computers and laptops dispatched to people in our country. We does not carry badges identifying us as such. Its main mission is to voice our concern for our people and to our government.

    Unfortunately for Filipinos living outside the Philippines, although highly educated, they rely heavily on Google and other search engines for information.The internet is wonderful tools exchanging information.

    I am inviting you to visit my site and sign-in.

  8. I agree with you nothing really has just changed. The only changing in our country are the political leaders seated in congress, senate and malacanang. But look at us? Where’s our freaking income taxes going? Grrr…

    Alam mo, kaya nga may political dynasty siguro para mapalagaan ang interes nila sa gobyerno. Pero sa mamamayang katulad natin, mayroon ba? We are only needed because of the votes pero we are so neglected in everything!

  9. hello po…out of topic po..tanong lang san si Reyna elena…lasi po kasing under repair notice ung nakukuha ko pag type ko add nya kahit ung mag links nya..

  10. makikisali lang po.. our country is really beautiful and a lot of resources compared to the other country.
    how poor our country is, because of that corrupt people as in parang sila lang ang tao sa mundo na nakatira sa pinas..inuubos ang ating yaman..people are talented and hardworking but most of that people are NAPAPAKINABANGAN ng ibang bansa at madalas naaabuso..para sa family at pagtititisan ang kakarampot na sweldo khit naaabuso. ibang bansa lang ang yumayaman at mga pinoy na nagtatrabaho sa kanila at ang ating bansa ay napagiiwanan.

    i met a man and ask me why filipinos are all over the world, and send a lot of money to your country and yet your country is poor?
    people are talented and unique and yet we cannot do anything to change our system… there is time to change pero kelan???? pag patay na si UTO? huh!!!!
