Presenting to you the long and winding TALAHIB road of my Barriosiete!!!!

One word: BEAUTIFUL

REFRESHING

Wooden Bridge

mag-iigib sa liblib na lugar (kaya naka-head lamp)

kids are taught to harvest COPRA even at very young age

traversing the long and winding talahib hi-way

waiting for the next JEEP

para sa BAHAY KUBO

sini-semento na!!! kase malapit na ang eleksyon…(pictures taken MAY 2010)

10 years na yata ‘to ginagawa

lack of manpower…eh pano walang budget…eh kase siguro the money allocated to these projects went to the pockets of…

DPWH. Ching!!! Hinde ako sure, ang magalit GUILTY. As in.

ang mga kabayo ni Don Miguel haha

Habal-habal ride

high-end ang mga jeep dito. custom made.

Matibay. 4WD. Kayang umakyat ng bundok.

at kayang mag-sakay ng 50 ka-tao.

habal-habal ride without helmet

teacher going from one barrio to another

Pangarap ko ang sementong hi-way na ‘to. Sooo beautiful!

the road going to the TOWN PROPER. ang smooth at ang linis.

And because I love old school, I am posting this! Make sure to PRESS PLAY this then go back on TOP…look at the pics again…at ma-fe-feel nyo exactly what I am feeling today….and that is EMO!!!! HAHAHA

Seriously.

Dear DPWH, please fix this long and winding talahib road of my barrio. Sabi nga ni REYNZ ayoko ng tumapak sa PUTIK!!! HAHAHA

I am being emotional tonight because you don’t know how much a pain in the a*s it is to go home in my barrio. LITERAL talagang PITA eh subukan mo kayang sumakay sa habal-habal for 2 hours on a rocky and dusty road…ewan ko lang kung di sumakit ang katawan mo. Pero hinde lang yon ang dahilan. MADAMI PA. There are many places in the Philippines long forgotten by politicians…and sadly, my barrio is one of them.

Uulitin ko yun sinabi ko l ast year:

“I have high dreams for my barrio (and for every barrio in the Philippines too) – maayos na school facilities, health care for everyone, stable supply ng electricity, access to clean water, computers and access to internet at por Diyos por Santo!!! Isang maayos na hi-way”

Hinde ko hinihiling na matupad lahat….agad-agad. Kahit yun internet access lang muna para naman makapag-facebook si Inday (my kid sister MAOMAO). AHHAHA

Donate to CHUVANESS FOUNDATION NOW and help me fix this long and winding talahib hi-way!!! Thanks!
