What is new in 2009 Halloween?

A. There were no eggs along the hallways.

I really  wonder  why? Nakapagtataka! – Kids/teenagers usually throw eggs during halloween.

The images below were taken from last year’s halloween.

Nakakalungkot talagang tingnan ang ganitong scenario especially pag-alam mong maraming nagugutom tapos sila pinagtatapon lang ang itlog.

eggs

What a waste!

Pinag-iitlogan (binabato, iniitlogan) nila ng itlog ang bahay mo for simple reason – yan ang kanilang “Trick” dahil walang “Treat” ang maybahay.

Ibig sabihin pag walang candy (treat) ang maybahay na ibigay, tatapunan (trick) ung bahay mo ng itlog.

But last night mukhang wala akong nakita. Naki-recession na rin siguro ang kabataan at walang pambiling itlog para iwaldas.

B. I don’t usually celebrate Halloween, pero nang malaman kong nag-hahaloween ang mga ka-bloggers ( Sample: Barrio Halloween:  Since when mi-ara sang Pinas Halloween: DesertFishing Halloween Party; But Lee’s fact of Life should describe Halloween in Paris among the talking veggies; Of course, Mino saves little miss nonsense’s halloween special) naki-wear na rin ako ng aking costume.

See below… for my halloween attire. “Under the Light’tah Light’tah”

C. Post ko na rin napiling mga halloween images from my photo archives.

    hapi halloween. i saw a celtic cross above…celtic christianity – a creative mixture of transformed paganism and christianity, but no less shallower than most Christians thought…that’s why halloween is still around tickling our imagination and psyche hehe…

    • darbs said

      Excellent eyes you’ve got there Dfish! Yap, natumbok mo. Dito sa NY kasi Dfish parang nandito halos lahat ung major catholic christian churches. Isa na ang Celtic Christianity or Insular Christianity. See Wikipedia

      Malaki din ung simbahan nila. May sarili din silang sementeryo. Halloween Special DFish.

      Of all the practices, ang hindi ko lang talaga masakyan is ang Halloween (don’t ask me why…) until you mentioned this.

      a creative mixture of transformed paganism and christianity, but no less shallower than most Christians thought…that’s why halloween is still around tickling our imagination and psyche

      Which makes sense to me…

      Kaya nga na-mention ko na from our previous discussion na kung ikaw siguro ung na-assign na personal sd ko noong kapanahunan wala sanang reason na I would skip the monthly scheduled “spiritual discussion.” May record sana akong maipakita to my defense na nagpa-spiritual direction at wala sanang rason ung seminary “ispirilitsugas”, at si damasoy na sabihing “NO RECORD OF SPIRITUAL DIRECTION – the reason for expulsion!”

      Looking back, what I hated most dahil may paluhod luhod pa, may pa-luha luha pa ako doon sa vocation director namin asking/begging for MERCY! Kung spiritual record lang namang ang atraso ko. Para sa akin wats the big deal? Look at damasoy? May vow of Chas-titi nya, nag chastiti sa iyang tikboy sa seminaryo mismo? Did we say anything? shhh…. I did not tell that to my vocation director basin ma-iskandalays.

      However, kung alam ko lang na ganito pala kasarap ang buhay sa labas. TO HELL WITH THOSE FRIGGING TEARS! DARN IT! I should not have asked for any chance and beg for mercy…for nothing.

      I SHOULD JUST GET OUT WITHOUT THEM TELLING ME! I should have just told them, especially si Padre Damasoy Wakalamoy and/or Ispirilitsugas, “Hey! arseholens, YOU ARE RIGHT! I AGREE! I HAVE NO VOCATION/NO FRIGGING SPIRITUALITY/NO RELIGIOUSITY! YOU CAN KICK ME OUT NOW! BRING IT ON! Ug may pakapin pa giod nga “darse arsers!” BURAWA! End of story na sana. Wala nay nadamay…

      AND NO! – dili ko mag-pa-om-om ni Damasoy just to achieve that FRIGGING DREAM of priesthood. NO FRIGGING WAY!

      And Jimboy (THE WELDER) the MISYONARYO OF SOMETHING – LOYAL NI PAPA! wherever you are – hmmnnn asa ba ka nga parti sa kalibutan karon UNDOY?

      Lets see…connecting…Latin America ba? sa may AMAZON RIVER (myth: amazonans)… nakiglangoy sa mga piranha ug mga buaya?

      (I did not forget what you told me before you left the seminary…)

      Jimboy, LOOKING BACK lang! You know who is talking! – just to tell you na… I proved you wrong with your comment NA AKO LANG ANG MAPARI PAG MAGING ADMIN SI DAMASOY… Did I? YOU WERE WRONG, MY FRIEND! YOU WERE WRONG! Dead wrong.

      Anyway, nakinig naman ang vocation director dahil ang reason ko nga was that… sino ba ang ganahang magpa-direct doon sa assigned spiritual director na bawat punta mo AYON NAGLALASING! NAG-IINUMAN! – dahil IN CRISIS NA PALA ANG PWAKANG… Mabait naman si Father Vocation Director, sinulatan ang NDAS administrator… MERCY!

      By the way, Padre Vocation Director, you did your part and thank you for the chance… what you need to know now is that “pinagtatawanan pala ung sulat mo.” and to exaggerate sa istoryang ito, dahil may pagka theatrical si darbs, sabi pa ni Damasoy Wakalamoy, “Tsey!, lang sa sulat na yan, may pakapin pa na pwe! (Sorry about that…)

      anyway… year after na nasipa si aki sa NDAS, dahil ung si Padre Damasoy Wakalamoy, pinagtatawanan ang letter from my vocation director dahil nga “null and void” daw un. “NO MORE CHANCE FOR ME!” ONLY BORDS HAD THE CHANCE! Back to…(Reason: no record of spiritual direction and/or no spirituality) ung paring assigned for my monthly spirituality direction lumabas din at may haka-haka pang dinala ung asawa nya during one of the ordinations at nakaupo pa sa HARAPAN NG MADLA na simbahan – the same CHURCH HE WAS ORDAINED not long ago…

      Pabaga ug nawong? Now that’s pabaga to the fullest. salute to you pads! and THANK YOU for giving me the IDEA!

      looking back once again, sa iyo pads kung nagbasa man ka karon, sana nung tinanong ka ni Ispirilitsugas regarding my monthly “sprituality” session sana nagsinungaling ka na lang. hahahah! just kidding.

      • dFish said

        Hahaha, spiritual director ka dyan Darbs. Ako nga naliligaw dito sa trackless desert at kelangan ng good shepherd. Pero yun din ang wisdom – hindi maintindihan ng isang tao ang kahulugan ng “good shepherd” kung hindi nya aaminin na isang “ligaw na tupa” lang sya. Pag spiritual director ka na – ka-level mo na ang Good Shepherd. This is where presumption (maraming alam) and the temptation to control the one under SD come in. Hayun, patongga-tongga na lang si SD kasi di na nya kelangan ang silence (shattering of one’s spiritual knowledge or image or titles). Kelangan pa kaya ni SD si Good Shepherd? Ato-ato lang ni ha…

        • darbs said

          hahahah! ato-ato na lang giod. but guess what Dfish? what an irony kay “Tom Green” trained giod baya tu sya nga SD. Lalom sad ug paminsar but, well… may hangganan giod siguro ang tanan. Kay idili man gi-mean nga kung ordained ka na wala nay personal struggle… balos ko… ato-ato na lang. heheh…

          • dFish said

            Ang problema man gud sa mga titles Darbs, sa kadugayan, mahimong na syang exclusivist. Pananglitan – sa formation – ang kasagaran hunahuna sa mga seminarista, dili sila molambo sa ilang spiritual life kon walay SD. Tinuod, makatabang man ang SD, pero depende sa kalawom sa espiritwalidad sa “spiritual director” kay naa may “spiritual director” nga possessive na kaayo sa ilang “spiritual knowledge” as if the Holy Spirit only works in one true way, their way, their psychology, their babble to the point of becoming controlling. Pila ka kauban nako sa sem, giingnan sa SD nga mogawas na lang sila kay wala silay bokasyon. Pero kay ni-persevere man sila despite the advise, na-ordinahan ug mao pay hinuon mga sulondon. Ti-aw mo na nga “spiritual direction”! Kaya, usahay, mas maayo ug makatabang nga ang mga title, atong i-deconstruct to smash the idols we create for ourselves. Bisan si Thomas Merton, dili gyud siya mosugot nga tawgon nga “spiritual guru”; guide pwede pa daw…Pero – kanang imong i-direct ang kalag sa usa ka tawo nga may shared nature pud ni God – sus Ginoo, ngilgig baya nga trabaho uy…

        Swak na swak ang reflection mo dfish. Mora bag kinsay ilaron ining mga kanahang dako. Ambot kung naa ni silay course sa “History of the Church”, nga sa personal nga faith makalipong giod baya. Pero survive ko sa akong pagka iskandalays. In fact, nahimong mas stronger ang faith. Mao na nga nakaingon ko ba nga, “who were they kidding?”

        Additional comment is coming. More reflection on this one. Kay morag gainit ko gahuna-huna. Anyway, hisgot man lang sa kagahapon pero kinahanglan ang bugnaw nga ulo basin makapamalikas na sad ta sa “ispirlitsugas” nga morag si kinsa sa iyang kapanahunan.

        In fairness, Pious kung sa piousness… ug gibatig kasikat. Ikaw kunuhay himoong obispo what do you feel?

        in fact, may usa ka incident nga kining mga pipila ka butakal sad nga kaparian naglantaw ug “ehem” kabawo ka na, sus, nasudlan sa kanahan pari pa sya at that time, wa ba kaha gisudlan ug gipawong ang betamax nga salidang “igwadanay” dayon gipangasab-an. napalaw uroy ang mga butakal. hahahah!

      • bonz said

        bay, grabe na imo mga pagsarcastic in this comment ba….hahaha, a very interesting story not far away actually. Kuyaw gyud ang inyo history ba, kahit sino mangkuton mo, tikom bibig sila (no comment as if)! Keep up bay, sometimes gani feel ko man gihapon sa NDAS nga murag injustice man ang nahitabo on my part.! Hirap makalimutan ang bumabalik na ksaysayan.

    • darbs said

      @Bonz… ayaw tawon sugnuri kay introduction pa lang na sya. kay abi man gud ni Padre Damasoy Wakalamoy et al nga malimtan ang personalan… ug okey lang man bai kung walay nadamay.

      Now, ang nakaparat pa giod kay ang nadamay matud pa sa akong balita nga nadawat, ako na karon ang gipasanginlan nga maoy sad-an/ gi-blame sa ilang ADBENTURISMONG GIHOMONG HUNGER STRIKE!

      Hello NDAS 36!

      Hello! I was no longer there, REMEMBER?

      If you recalled my advise/opinion of what you were about to do was, "NOT NECESSARY! and You don't have to do it! Pero nakinig ba? Kay gipangbati na man sad ug kasikat…and guess what? "Akong sala?" YOU MUST BE KIDDING ME!

      Speak out and tell me that it was my fault also for "clapping!" when they handed down the decision that you would be expelled. (36 NDAS who joined the whatever purpose you were doing…)

      YOU SHOULD HAVE REVIEWED THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH DARN ARSERS BEFORE ENGAGING SUCH ADVENTURISM… BUT YOU DID NOT! and then later on in life blame it to me? Now that is retarded! And I am tired of accepting and listening all your cr*ps…

    lols. sayang ang egg madami nagugutom ngayon hehehe..

    • darbs said

      agree, parekoi! na-remember ko noong kapanahunan na “one egg” just one egg for the family of six. paghati-hatian yan ng six equally shared parts. Kung sa hatian minsan may parting mas malaki maybe one millimeter or just an illusion na mas malaki konti tingnan ung isang hiwa, hayun pinag-aawayan na kung sinong makakuha ng malaking parti.

      kaya pag nakita ko ang waste lalo na pagkain na basta na lang itinatapon for fun, parang nakapanlupay-pay.

      Sa kanila parang balewala. kaya sometimes, parang naisip ko tuloy na ung galing ka sa kahirapan parang its a curse. ang tawag sa iyo “frugal”, “kuripot” now nakakabawi na ang mga visayan/ilongo nito stereo type 101… , “ILOKANO KA LATTA!”

  3. haloween na nga….sayang ang itlog….sarap pa na naman ng pancakes….pumpkin pa rin para sa akin ang symbolism ng haloween…di ko rin alam ..pero wag wala nito parang walang ganyang okasyon…..

    • darbs said

      Blu, si Dfish ang nag open ng pandora box. I did know kaya naki google kung saan ang origin nitong Halloween.

      check this out.

      History of Halloween
      Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. Traditional activities include trick-or-treating, bonfires, costume parties, visiting “haunted houses” and carving jack-o-lanterns. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century including Ireland, the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom as well as of Australia and New Zealand.

      Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain (pronounced “sah-win”).

      The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter. The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops.

      The festival would frequently involve bonfires. It is believed that the fires attracted insects to the area which attracted bats to the area. These are additional attributes of the history of Halloween.

      Masks and consumes were worn in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or appease them.

      Trick-or-treating, is an activity for children on or around Halloween in which they proceed from house to house in costumes, asking for treats such as confectionery with the question, “Trick or treat?” The “trick” part of “trick or treat” is a threat to play a trick on the homeowner or his property if no treat is given. Trick-or-treating is one of the main traditions of Halloween. It has become socially expected that if one lives in a neighborhood with children one should purchase treats in preparation for trick-or-treaters. Source: halloweenhistory.org

    teka teka, bat nagkalat ang mga tokneneng dyan? nasan ka nyan? kala ko pa naman e magaling sasalo ng tokneneng? lakay, sa sunod pag wala kang kending pang treat siguruhin mong naka ready ang kawali para pang hagis ng tokneneng (gawing parang tennis)

    • darbs said

      Kulang pa yan. may itinapon doon sa mga bentana; sa may bubong; mga sasakyan;

      Minsan ung iba sa taas ng building inaambush ka pa at pinapaulanan ng itlog.

      Kaya ang ginawa ko para walang gulo and to avoid AMBUSH/TAPUNAN NG EGGES, I have to take a cab from the train station. I avoided walking dahil maraming high rise building ang dinadaanan ko.

      At least pag nasa cab ka na, safe na ang feeling mo. ang marinig mo lang eh ung mamang driver cursing sa mga tumatapon nang itlog splattered sa windshield. Additional expense at additional work na rin sa paglilinis/car wash.

      Affordable kasi ang itlog dito kaya inaabuso.

      • lee said

        parang dito din pala napaka afordabol ng itlog pipila ka nga lang dun sa fresh na mura pa.

        • darbs said

          @Maam Lee, are we talking same itlog here?

          hahahah! sori po maam kong i am heading sa hindi tamang landas.

          It is not gentlemanly pa man daw ang green jowks pag gentlewoman ang kausap.

          • lee said

            ehem ehem, my napepeke pa rin pala ko, may nagkamali pa ring gentlewoman ako, teka, anu nga bang itlog ang pinag uusapan natin?

            • darbs said

              maybe iba ung pagka-intende ko sa pinipilahang itlog na fresh pa.

              napaka afordabol ng itlog pipila ka nga lang dun sa fresh na mura pa.

              Maam Lee, bat wala kang avatar? Maganda pa naman ung avatar mo. Paki-fix naman ung avatar mo maam.

  5. Ngayon lang ako nakabalita ng ganyang ‘Trick’. Dito naman sa amin ay excited pa rin ang mga mavbahay para dalawin ng mga bata…waiting ang mga chocolates. Kaya lang yung mga bata ang wala…mukhang malalaki na sila.

    Ok yan ‘Killer Pizza’…hehe nakikisama sa mga yumao.

    • darbs said

      hahahah! natatawa naman ako sa sinabi mo superlo.

      Dito naman sa amin ay excited pa rin ang mga mavbahay para dalawin ng mga bata…waiting ang mga chocolates. Kaya lang yung mga bata ang wala…mukhang malalaki na sila.

      Ano ba ang mga tao dyan sa inyo nag-family planning dahil wala nang kasunod?

      Ang daming bata sa kapaligiran namin superlo. para atang paktorya ng bata itong lugar namin.

      Just imagine within sa vicinity ng neighborhood namin there are at least 4 playgrounds/parks.

      There are at least 10 schools private/public from elementary/middle school/high school.

      Again, masaya.

      • Haha…itong lugar kasi namin parang…oldies but goodies ang mga nakatira…yung mga magulang nung araw na naghanap ng tahimik na lugar…yung average age ng homeowners na nakikita ko dito ay…70++ up na.

        —“Again, masaya.”

        Galing ako sa lugar na maraming tao sa atin…Sampaloc,Mla at Tandang Sora,QC…dito ‘feeling retreat house’ palagi…tahimik…di masaya…hehe.

      • darbs said

        @Superlo hope you don’t mind. I could not help na ipaskil ung magandang tanawin sa lugar ninyo lo.

        By the way, aabusuhin ko na rin itong bago ko lang nalamang makapag- img src = “image” na pala ang comments ng WordPress. resulting the one below.

        Actually, isa ito sa mga wishlist na kung puedi sana makapag img src=”image” sa comments. noon kasi drupal lang (another web apps) ang pueding gumawa ng ganito. at least ngayon WordPress may kakayanan na.

  6. Alkapon said

    Pareng darbs, natawa ako sa paghagis ng itlog sa bahay kapag walang treat ang maybahay.. hirap linisin nun.. ha ha ha

    parang sa pasko rin, mag nangangaroling ang mga bata at hindi lalabas ang may-bahay at ayaw magbigay, kakantahan ka nga “..Tank you..Thank you.. ang babarat ninyo thank you”. ha ha ha kaloko talaga ng mga bata d2 sa maynila.

    • darbs said

      Sinabi mo pa. Hindi lang mahirap linisin dapat ora-mismo ang linisan dahil pag ipagbaliban nangangamoy din.

      ung kantang “ang babarat ninyo” mukhang ganoon din ang principle. at least dyan kanta na lang dinadaan.

      hindi pala uso dito ung caroling ng kabataan. sa simbahan lang nag ka-karoling.

      may grupo din ng mga noypi dito na nag-karoling pero bibigyan ka ng notice kung kailan gagawin ang caroling sa bahay hindi na lang basta basta susulpot.

      yan ang isa sa mga nakaka-miss na Filipino tradisyon.

  7. Mr. Nonsense said

    buti nga at inunahan mo na yung killer pizza…

  8. darbs said

    Killer Pitsa dahil masarap daw ang pitsa nila.

    Nanakawin ko na naman pala ang youtube halloween special mo Mr. Nonsense.

    Gaya ng dati pa rin ang hatian 60 sa iyo. 40 sa akin. heheheh… thank you again for sharing your talent Mr. Nonsense. Alam ko maraming maharbat na youtube sa tabi tabi pero iba talaga pag galing sa ka-blog. very personal ang dating.

    Happy All Souls Day and Happy All Saints Day na lamang po!
