Goodbye, Panpan.

Mahal kong Panpan,

Marami kaming tinuro na tricks sa iyo dati pero isa lang ang nakuha mo, iyong congrats trick. Kung maaalala mo, ito ‘yong babatiin ka namin ng congrats, tapos iaabot mo ang kamay/paa mo na parang nagshe-shake hands. Marami kang napapasaya dahil doon. Sino nga ba namang aso ang sanay nito? Sinubukan rin naming ituro sayo yung mga basic na “sit” at “play-dead” pero di mo nagawa. Ang madalas mong nagagawa unconsciously ay iyong “parang-tatahol-pero-di-tatahol look” at iyong “Maja effect” otherwise known as “mahanginan-tulog effect” (Exhibit Photo). Naiintindihan ko naman hindi mo ito magegets agad ang mga complicated tricks kasi aso ka. Kung masyado kang matalino, tao ka na siguro noon.

At mabuti sana, Panpan, kung masunurin ka, pero labas ka nang labas ng gate at higa ng higa sa garahe! Ilang beses ka na nga uli nasagasaan? Four (documented) times na di ‘ba, at ganoon ka pa rin - lalabas sa highway, manliligaw ng aso ng kapitbahay, tawid kung saan-saan. Isang time nabali leg mo. The last time naman, kinailangan mo pang tanggalan ng isang mata. Gusto mo yang nagi-emo at uma-adventure mag-isa, like crazy. Ang kulit-kulit.

Marami akong pwedeng i-reklamo sa matinding pagiging clingy mo sa amin kapag pinapapasok ka sa loob ng bahay. Nakaupo ka lang sa tabi ni Daddy kapag nanonood sya, nakasandal sa sofa at naghihintay na magising ako tapos makikita ko magkalapit na by an inch and fez natin, kapag hindi ka pinapansin ni Mommy kinakalabit mo sya, at kahit lapirutin ni Jam ang ilong mo kapag nanggigigil s’ya ay steady ka lang.

Sa kabila nitong mga rekla ko sa’yo, napapansin ko na kapag uuwi ako nang late sa Pulilan, hindi sina Daddy or Jam ang tatawagin ko pagkapasok ko sa gate kundi ikaw. For voice recognition siguro para hindi mo ako kagatin, pero alam ko naman na hindi mo gagawin iyon. Madalas noon, you’re the first to run to me kapag dumarating ako, tatalon-talon ka pa. Since your most recent accident, medyo nahuhuli ka na sa takbo nina Maxie at Shyshy pero panay pa rin ang wasiwas mo ng buntot kapag papalapit ka sakin. Parang iyong buong buto’t balat na katawan mo, nawawasiwas rin. Hindi mo innuendo yung bali mo sa leg or yung isa mong mata. Kapag tinawag nga kita from your blind side (literal), lilingon ka pa kasi titignan mo ako bago ka lumapit.

Paborito ka rin ng mga kamag-anak at friends natin kasi, sa kabila ng mga kapansanan mo, lagi ka pa ring pa-involve sa mga usapan, inuman, kainan, bisitahan, pyesta, prayer meeting, atbp., sa bahay. Ano ba ang meron sa mga gatherings at gusto mong laging nakikinig, nanonood, nakasandal sa tabi ng mga bisita? May bacon ba? Or liver spread? Wala naman. Pero nandoon ka, behaved, poised, so zen, looking at people, at pumipikit kapag hinakawakan ka sa ulo, o nagpapasiklab with your congrats trick kapag may nag-abot ng kamay. Hindi ka nagto-toys o nanghahabol ng mga pusa for fun, gusto mong kasama ay mga tao. Baka naman hindi ka dog kundi insekto, kasi social butterfly ka. Eh, joke lang.

So ngayong umaga, nabalitaan ko kay Jam na patay ka na raw. Nakuha ko ito sa kalagitnaan ng morning meeting ko. Kakaibang lungkot na para akong nabuhusan ng malamig na tulog at nag-gasp for air nang bahagya. Siguro, hindi pa ako nakapagmahal ng dog as much as I love you, Panpan. You are my favorite.

Mamimiss ko yung uupo lang tayo sa kubo o sa terrace tapos aakbayan kita tapos ipapatong mo yung kamay/paa mo sa tuhod ko. Kung may dog heaven man, sana masaya ka naman d’yan. Huwag ka lang sanang lalabas-labas ng gate.

Lovingly Yours,

J

I wish to see the Philippines be like Korea 30 years ago when they rose above their transport challenges. I would have to make these changes happen in my lifetime!

Winning Some, Losing Some

We all make compromises.

Say for instance, a workday morning when you step out from your house and wait for a trike, and in a minute of waiting, nothing comes. You then walk to the end of the block to get your ride because you want to save time. You have in your two hands your computer, your bag, your phone and the rest of your abubots and a coat. You get too much sun and you expose yourself to all live perils like passing cars, dogs branded by Cesar Millan as those in great panic, dog poo, and the sleazy stares from sanitary technicians, drivers and topless workers wearing their boxers on the street for fun. So you got to the end of the block, hailed a trike, you got poured over the wheat field and poof! You became KokoCrunch! What a way to burn calories, you tell yourself. 

This happens five days a week, you make those daily sacrifices and it eventually develops into a habit. You do it because you have to in order to make your life easy. You get more sleep (or you wake up late) because you know it is faster to walk than to just wait at your front door for a ride. You wear something apt for walking because you don’t want to power-dress and get unnecessary attention. When your friends visit you, you tell them it’s better to walk a few hundred meters because vacant trikes hardly come by. It is all good.

There are days, however, when you have so much to bring to work, or you have a back ache, or when rain is pouring, or when you have new shoes, or when you are too hungry to walk straight, or when you had a late night that your eyes are too puffy for public viewing, or just when you basically think of why you would have to walk again. Then you remember, that the reason why you chose the house in the first place is because accessible transportation is right outside your gate. #
