Welcome To My Barrio Siete

I’M BACK!!!!

Please come in and please sit down. I know you have all been waiting for this post haha charing lang. I’ve been a bit busy catching up on work and chismax. Anyway, this has long been overdue kaya eto na, let me bring you to my own barrio siete so you can experience one of a kind barriotic culture. Reydi na? Ok go!


My barrio is in a far far away island in the Easter Visayas region.


TO go there, you need to ride all types of public transpo available – from bus to bapor to banca to jeep to tricycle. The long journey to my barrio siete will end with this habal habal ride…


…traversing the long and winding Talahib Hi-way


Infairness ha, may mga magandang road din naman


Dito sa barrio, there’s plenty of bahay kubo (read: Poverty)


Pero laging may habag ang Diyos


..ang biyaya nya ay hinde nagwawakas. Naks. Biniyayaan nya kami ng plenty of puno ng nyog para gawing copra haha


and plenty of seafoods

and overflowing with the bounty of harvest time.

Maganda sa barrio.

…feel na feel kong ako si Ploning nun umuwi ako eh haha


…yung laging malayo ang tingin


…wala namang tinatanaw lol

Life in the barrio is soo hirap pero masaya lagi ang mga tao dito.

  2. tagal ko nang naghihintay ng updates mo. buti na lang nagpost ka ng mga pictures, natawa ako sa Ms. Baranggay, napasali rin ako dyan noong kabataan ko, ay sows, nag kaka nightmares pa rin ako–hinahabol ako ng mga zombie na makapal ang make-up. wahahaha

  3. Nag enjoy ako dun sa pictures ng dalawang kalan sa cocina, dun sa nangangaret ng tuba sa puno, dun sa matandang lalaking tinititigan un sasabunging manok, “ano ba, magkakapera ba ako sau sa sabong o ano?!” at un mga matatandang party goers. Ahahaha.

    Teka ano un pom pom girls sa Barrio Siete? :em32:

  4. Gara ng last picture. Not because it has barriotic feel to it. Naah. I find it candid and relaxed. Parang masarap kaibiganin. Para siyang hindi pilya. Ahahaha.

    @we love languages – do you really love languages? Or do you mean us and you exclude yourself.

    I noticed you because you’ve left the same comment in my blog, word for word. And at least in another place. That’s odd for a lover of language. You’re shooting blanks it seems to me.

    I’m not a blog comment vigilante. I’m a very tolerant person. But I woke up in the wrong side of the bed today. So please excuse for expressing my displeasure.
