*Passive Aggressive* Ann: Oh……Okay, I just.. well okay, I guess we can leave now.

Jane: Ann, do you want to stay? Is that what you’re to get at? .

*Passive Aggressive* Ann: Huh? Oh no, we can leave if you want, I just didn’t get to do everything I wanted to do yet, but no no , we can go I guess.

Jane: God dammit Ann! Fine, we’ll stay, are you happy?

*Passive Aggressive* Ann: Oh Okay! Yeah! That sounds great too!.

  As of now,seeing the youth of today,I can say that there still a chance for that very phrase to be true and to be acted by the youth of of today in order to make a transformation in the Philippines. I know inside my heart we have still those youth who are willing to give their best,their talents in different field,great ideas to innovate new great  things as contribution to the total transformation of the Philippines.And apparently I’m one of them.Like those youth who stand before that phrase , I also want to be part of that transformation not just because of fun but because it’s our motherland that needs us the most. Even in our very little thing we can still be part of that transformation just make it sure that what you did are good and you won’t hesitate to do it because of motherland, it all counts.In connection of me, I do really love writing,blogging and everything that involves letters,words,stuffs and beautiful ideas ,there i found my freedom and then I Came out into a great realization that by enhancing my talent in writing I can use it as a sword or just a matter of way to help motherland against invader just like what Rizal did, he used his pen as his swords and yeah.. it’s mightier than the real; swords and maybe by that I can say that, that would be my contribution for the transformation of the Philippines, and of course i will also set into my mind that I used to write because of my country the Philippines not for the fame. 

 

Chapter 6
In sunny Spain (1882-1885)
After finishing the 4
th
year of medical course In the University of Sto. Tomas, JoseRizal being disgusted with the antiquated method of instruction in this Dominican-owned university and the racial prejudice of Dominican professors against Filipinostudents, decided to complete his studies to Spain was a constitutional monarchyunder a written constitution which granted human rights to the people, particularlyfreedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom assembly. Aside from thisostensible reason, he had another reason, which was more important than merelycompleting his studies in Spain this was his “secret mission”.
Rizal’s Secret mission
 This mission whom Rizal conceived with approval of his order brother Paciano wasto observe keenly the life and culture, Languages and customs, industries andcommerce, and government and laws of the European nations in order to preparehimself in the mighty task of liberating his oppressed people from Spanish tyranny. This was evidenced in his farewell letter which was delivered to his parents shortlyafter his departure for Spain.
Secret Departure for Spain
Rizal’s departure for Spain was kept secret to avoid detection by the Spanishauthorities and the friars. Even his own parents did not know. Before his secret hewrote a farewell letter for his beloved parents and another one for his sweet heartLeonor Rivera-both delivered shortly after he sailed away. On May 3, 1882, Rizaldeparted on board the Spanish steamer
Salvadora
bound for Singapore. With tearsin his eyes and gloom in his heart, he gazed at the receding skyline of Manila.
Singapore
During the voyage to Singapore he carefully observed the people and things onboard the steamer. There were sixteen passengers, including himself. The shipcaptain Donato Lecha from Asturias Spain befriended him. To while away thetedious boredom of sea voyage Rizal played chess with his fellow passenger whowere much older than he. He defeated them many times for he was a good chessplayer. On May 8, 1882, while the steamer was approaching Singapore Rizal saw abeautiful island. Fascinated by its scenic beauty, he remembered “Talim Island withsusong dalaga”. The following day the Salvadora docked at Singapore. Rizal landedregistered at Hotel Dela Paz, and spent two days on sight seeing soiree of the citywhich was colony of England. He saw the famous botanical garden the beautifulBuddhist temple the busy shopping district and the statue if sir Tomas StanfordRaffles (founder of singapore).
 

From Singapore to Colombo
In Singapore Rizal transferred to another ship Djemnah a French steamerwhich left Singapore for Europe on May 11. It was a larger and cleaner vessel whichcarried more passengers. Rizal attempted to converse with his fellow passengers inFrench but to his surprise and embarrassment he found out that his book Frenchcould not be understood so that he had to speak in mixed Spanish-Latinsupplemented by much gesticulations and sketching on paper. On May 17 theDjemnah reach point Galle a seacoast town in southern Ceylon (Sri Lanka). Rizalwas unimpressed by this town. On his travelled diary he wrote: “The generalappearance of point Galle is picturesque but lonely and quite and at the same timesad.” The following day the Djemnah weighed anchor and resumed the voyagetowards Colombo, the capital of Ceylon. After a few hours of sailing he reached thiscity on the same day. He delightful scribbled on his diary: “Colombo is morebeautiful smart and elegant than Singapore Point Galle and Manila.”
First Trip to Suez Canal
From Colombo the Djemnah continued the voyage crossing the Indian Oceanto the café of Guardafui, Africa. For the first time, Rizal sighted the barren coast of Africa, which he called an “inhospitable land but famous.” The next stop over-inAden-Rizal went ashore to see the sights. He found the city hotter than Manila.What impressed most was the beautiful moonlight which reminded im of calambaand his family. It took the Djemnah five days to traverse the Suez Canal. At PortSaid the Mediterranean terminal of Suez Canal Rizal landed in order to see theinteresting sight. He was fascinated to hear the multi racial inhabitants speakingbabel of tongues.
Naples and Marseilles
.From Port Said the Djemnah proceeded on its way to Europe. He visited thefamous chateau d’if, where Dantes hero of the count of Monte Cristo, wasimprisoned. Barcelona on the afternoon of June 15, Rizal left Marseille by the trainfor the last lap of his trip to Spain. After the passport inspection at Port-Bou Rizalcontinued his trip by rail finally reaching his destination- Barcelona on June 16,1882. Rizal’s first impression of Barcelona the greatest city of Cataluña and Spain’ssecond largest city was unfavorable. He thought that it’s ugly with dirty little innsand inhospitable residents because he happen to stay upon his arrival at dingy innsituated ion on unimpressive narrow street in the “town’s most ugly side” and thestaff and guest in this inn were indifferent to him. Later he changes his badimpression and came to like the city.

Thetagalong text was a translation made by M.H. Delpilar. The article caused quitesensations among the readers in the Philippines because of its nationalistic flavor.As in his price winning “Juventud Filipina.” Rizal in his “Amor patrio” urged himcompatriots to love there fatherland the Philippines. Publisher Basilio teodoro MoranDeply impressed by “Amor Patrio” congratulated Rizal and requested for morearticle. In response to his request Rizal wrote the second article for diariongtagalong entitled “Los Viajes” (Travels). His third article entitled “Revista de Madrid”(Review the Madrid), which he wrote in Madrid on November 29, 1882, was returnto him because the diariong tagalong had ceased publication for lack of funds.
Manila moves to Madrid
While sojourning in Barcelona, Rizal received sad news about the cholera thatwas ravaging Manila and the provinces. Many people had died and more were dyingdaily.

“RUDE GUY” (precillo).

I am not supposed to go that way,
But still i did it anyway..
We’ve crossed our path
Have eye to eye contact.
He suddenly pulled me up,
Near on his body then he dance.
I never know what to do?
Except to let go..
But his arms were soo  strong 
To stop me from doing scape
Added by the arms of his classmates
That were also strong, 
That  brought me to my knees.
I tried to fight but i’m weak,
Can’t defeat them up in my own strength.
But then i still tried,
Til’ i able to get off from his arms and crowd!!!

I SWEAR…

It’s now 5:00 PM.And my mind still confused of those words that came out from his vocal chord.A knife like words, that if heard would surely hurt your inner most.But despite of those hurtful thoughts I’m still at his side,trying to forget all of those,believing that someday he straightly look at me and say words he unusually say…Maybe this is a wishful thinking and probably a mindless dreaming but if he swears to love me again I also swear to love him back again and again.:)..♥♥
