Confessions of AttyArj

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a blog site maintained by a (high) school mate.  The blog site’s name is “Taga-RTPI” so I read some of the blog entries.  Since he’s just a year older, I can totally relate to his anecdotes, kilala ko rin halos lahat ng characters (i chose this word kasi ‘karakter’ talaga sila) mentioned.  How can I forget about them eh isa ako sa mga COCCng (Cadet Officer Candidate Course) pinahirapan at tinerorize ng mga CAT officers ng batch nila.

To the author of said blog (I think I know who he is), kudos to you.  Your anecdotes were funny, well written and, sa totoo lang, made me a little nostalgic.  Parang nag-flash back lahat memories ko with your batch, good and bad.  I have a pretty good memory but, compared to you, para akong si Dory (nang Finding Nemo).  Grabe, naalala mo lahat yun?  And wala akong masabi sa pagkasentimental mo ha, I can’t believe you saved your senior shirt and sports fest uniform.  Siguro pati ID, report card at back issues ng RTPI school paper itinago mo rin.  Question, malaki ba ang bodega nyo?

Anyway, enough intro.  The reason why I’m writing about the said site is because I can’t seem to access his account.  I repeatedly tried to post a comment to his “sabayang recitation” blog entry pero ayaw talaga, laging nag-e-error.  So, dito na lang.

In said blog, Taga-RTPI blogged (este, bragged) about their prowess in the chorale recitation* and then talked about their abysmal (hehehe) performance in sabayang pagbigkas**.  Sa RTPI kasi, every English Week and Linggo ng Wika, ang highlight ng celebration eh yung dalawang contest na yun, ang labanan kasi eh per year level.  Yung batch ’91, according to Taga-RTPI, won the chorale recitation during their sophomore, junior and senior years, pero never silang nanalo sa sabayang pagbigkas.  At dahil medyo nagka-amnesya ata sha kaya di nya nai-kwento kung sinong champion sa sabayang pagbigkas, gusto ko sana siyang i-remind na kami (batch ’92) yung tumalo sa kanila in all those years.  Problema, hindi nga ako makapag-post ng message sa site nya.  Kainis!  Karma ata yun, bad intentions kasi, hehehe.

Eto sana comment ko.  Sana mabasa nya.

“FYI, kami po yung tumalo sa inyo for 3 consecutive years.  Sori ha, mas magaling lang talaga kami sa inyo.  Had we known na dadalhin nyo hanggang ngayon yung bitterness at sama nang loob ng pag-katalo, sana hindi kami gaanong nag-praktis.  Peace!”

From a proud member of batch ’92 (sabayang pagbigkas champion for 4 yrs.)

“FYI again, Dev Comm din ako, nag-training (meaning, nag-panggap na manunulat) sumulat kay Sumikat S. and I eat at Guevarra’s, hehehe.”
