Games of the Generals

Kabibili ko lang ng GG kahapon. Wala kasi akong pambili ng PSP kaya GG muna binili ko. At doon ko lang nalaman na ang inbentor nito ay isang Pinoy… Ang Game of the Generals, also called Salpakan (in Tagalog) and simply The Generals, is an educational wargame invented in the Philippines by Sofronio H. Pasola, Jr. in 1970. It can be played within twenty to thirty minutes. It is designed for two players and requires the use of logic. The games simulates armies at war trying to outflank and outmaneuver each other. As in actual warfare, the game allows only one side’s plan to succeed. Certain strategies and tactics, however, allow both sides the chances of securing a better idea of the other’s plans as the game progresses. Players can speak with other during matches, hoping to make a false impression on where the flag is.

Merry Xmas and Hapi New Year to all…

December na naman… at ciempre pagpatong ng december eh isa lang pumapasok sa utak ng mga tao… hindi yung laban ni pacquiao. Yung pasko… marami na namang pera at marami na namang gastusin. Maaalala mong ang dami mo na palang inaanak. Panalo na naman ang mga tindahan, siksikan na naman sa divisoria kelan ba hindi pero ngayon nga lang as in di mahulugang karayom ang d’soria. At pag maraming pera marami ring mandurukot at manggagantso. Kaya yung mga mamimili ng mga kung anek anek jan cguraduhing d ka aanga anga, dahil kung nagoyo ka malamang hanggang kamot with matching tears ang drama mo paguwi mo ng haus nyo.

At speaking of christmas mawawala ba ang paborito kong bibingka at putobumbong with matching tsaa pa. Haaayy mararamdaman mo na rin yung lamig ng simoy ng hangin lalo na pag magsisimbang gabi ka na. Pagandahan ng kasuotan, mas maporma mas maangas ang dating. Pero kung gusto mo umiwas sa riot magsimple ka na lang at magsimba na lang. Wag na yung simbang gilid mas magandang magcontemplate sa mga nangyari sa iyo ng buong taon at magpasalamat ka sa mga natanggap mo. Ano?! wala kang natanggap? Pagpasalamat mo na lang at buhay ka pa at nakaabot ka ng christmas. Isa pa sa inaabangan ko twing christmas eh ang pangangaroling ng mga bata with their own version and lyrics sa mga kantang pampasko, bitbit ang pinitpit na tansan at tambol na gawa sa lata ng gatas, lastiko at plastic.

Sabi sa iba tayo ang may pinakamahabang xmas celebration kc pagpasok pa lang ng “ber” months eh hapi hapi na tayo. At ciempre pag hapi hapi mawawala ba ang inuman sa mga xmas party, paparty ng inyong department, tapos yung divisi0n nyo tapos overall party, tapos yung sa bahay nyo pa tapos yung reunion party nyo pa. Kaya pagdating ng enero di ako nagtatakang marami ang high blood at tumaba. Pero pagdating nga ng enero balik ulit syempre sa realidad at maiisip mong pati yung tinabi mong pera ay nagastos mo din. Wala ka na namang pera at ang katotohanang may mga utang ka pa palang hindi nabayaran. Pero sabi nga ng mga pinoy first things first. Merry Christmas muna tapos Happy New Year tapos semana santa na agad… Haaaaayyy…

Hmmm.. wala pang masyadong importanteng naganap sa araw na eto. Bukod sa birthday ng pinsan kong si mecmec eh monthsary rin namin ng mahal ko. Mec Hapi birthday cencia na sa atraso ko noon. Mahal happy 19th monthsary sana hindi mo na ako awayin. Pero ang pinakaaabangan ko sa araw na eto eh ang pag tambyolo ng mga kasalo at nakibahagi sa patimpalak ni KULAPO. Kung mananalo ako… ang unang una kong gagawin eh magtatago alo na sa mga pinagkakautangan ko. Yung mga inaaanak ko ngayong pasko eh ilista nyo muna hanggang sa magdebut kayo para todo pati pato ang regalo ko sa inyo. Pag natalo naman ko eh syempre magdadasal na sana manlibre ang mananalo. BURGER BURGER BURGER.

Pauso lang…

Kung pausuhan ang labanan kulelat ako jan… Gaya na lang nun uso yung VHS nun eh kabibili lang nila mama ng Betamax. Nung nagkaVHS kami at proud talaga ako nun with matching nenok pa sa barkada ko ng orig na mga VHS eh uso na pala ang VCD tapos naging DVD nung may VCD player na kami. Buti na lang at wala pang lumalabas na bago kaya kahit paano eh nakasabay din kami. Sabi nga nila “Huli man at magaling huli pa rin.” Pero di lang akojan huli maging sa mga balit at tsismis. One time habang nagyoyosi ako at nagbabasa ng dyaryo eh dumating yung isa kong kaofficemate na babae at tinatanong kung anong lumabas daw sa lotto. Sabi ko luma yung dyaryo na binabasa ko at nung nakaraang linggo pa yung binabasa ko. Tanong sya kung bakit ko daw binabasa, sagot agad syempre ako “Ma’am inaupdate ko lang sarili ko sa mga bagong balita.” Maging sa fashion medio huli at napagiiwanan din ako, hiphop na eh bell bottom pa ang suot suot ko, na ninakaw ko pa dun sa locker ng isang trabahador na katrabaho nila erpats.

At bakit ko sinulat eto eh dahil kay Kulapo. Gusto ko din kc tumabo ng madaming, sangkatutak at sangkaterbang singkong kulot. Kaya sumusunod ako sa yapak ni aydol, pero sa ngayon huli na naman ako sa uso, sila kumikita na ako KIKIta pa lang… (asteg parang 22o)

To all those born in the 1920’s to late 70′

NAKAKARELATE AKO KAHIT PAANO KAYA PINASKIL KO… ewan ko lang sa iyo…

Hi friends,lol you may have read this before…, but please read again. It is so nice and useful, hence I am sharing with you all here. It says-‘TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s’
First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes.
Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.
As infants &children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags.
Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.
We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.
We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.
We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank Kool-aid made with sugar, but we weren’t overweight because, WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.
No one was able to reach us all day.And we were OK. lol
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo’s, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD’s, no surround-sound or CD’s, no cell phones, no personal computer! s, no Internet or chat rooms……
WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!
We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.
We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.
We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not poke out very many eyes.
We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them!
Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!
The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!
These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!
The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!
If YOU are one of them CONGRATULATIONS!
You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good
So please share with your friends, comment on this.
