green me

I have a goal to grab before I turn 30 and who told you I'm more than 30? fuck you! It's a long to do list I tell you, but here's a portion:

-have a wood laminated graduation picture (check!)
-get that PRC ID (check!)
-write a personal hate letter to willie revillame (check!)
-do a medical mission to a far flung community, at mag feeling turista (check!)
-for gawd sake! do something good to the environment (CHECK!)

YES, I just did!

Yesterday I went-out to do some tree planting eklat for the La Mesa Watershed. It might sound a bit pageant patty and little like a government official during the election season, but my intentions are genuine and environmentally altruistic. Also, I just want to do something different because "I...
personally believe that we are unable to do so because, uhmmm, some people out there in our nation don't have uh, I believe that our, I, education like such as, uhh, South Africa, and uh, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for us...(???)... thank you!" (if you don't know what I'm talking about... click away)


I don't have a green thumb, everything that I planted on the soil died in just a matter of days. I remember having this science project in elementary where we have to grow Toge from mongo beans... after few days, all my classmates' canisters have something sprouting out of their lump of dirt. Mine? other than the nasty smell of what seemed to be like a rotten kamote, got nothing on it. (I don't know if someone played a prank on me)

Since then, I never attempted growing anything green.

But when you reach my age (20 something), you will eventually come realize that life is more than just about yourself, you have a social responsibility. With an equivocal threat of global warming, you will then find-out that you can help and you should do your part in saving our niche.

So enough of being a health freak, stop eating green leafy veggies, your hurting them, listen closely... you will hear them cry whenever you eat Caesar salad!

ako: pucha! malayo pa ba? tangna... tatlong kilometro na yun a!
ako (isip) : ok lang mag lakad... pero di ok pag nasira sapatos ko!
ako: tree planting ba to o alay lakad?
AKO DIN: DAMI MO ANGAL
ako: e kasi naman o...


forester : deforestation is a social issue ....
ako : deforestation your face, wala ba makakainan dito?
AKO DIN : SHHHH!
forester : you will be planting a banaba tree
ako : ano yun? as in banaba? diuretic alternative to edematous or suspected cardiac congestion? Lagerstroemia speciosa aka Giant Crape-myrtle or Queen's Crape-myrtle? endemic to south east Asian forest like of Thailand, India, Indonesia, Philippines and some parts of eastern India?
AKO DIN : AVER ... WINNER!
ako : wala bang maple or ebony?

ako : teka picture muna
--after 34 mins--
ako : last picture na peksman!
AKO DIN : GRABE, 30 SECONDS OF PLANTING, 30MINS OF PICTORIAL

--uwian na--
ako : mag pahuli kaya ako? para may moment
AKO DIN : WAG BAKA MAY NPA
ako : OA mo ha


--after 45mins of walking--
ako : shyet! parang di tayo dumaan dito kanina a!
ako : uhhm, guys? nasan na kayo?
AKO DIN : PATAY! LAGOT NA!
