MORAL FIBER /*
Last night, in keeping up to be “always” a true blooded Potterhead and to personally commemorate the 19th Anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, I watched (alone) for the nth time HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE. Towards the middle of the movie, on that part of the Twi-Wizard Tournament at the Black Lake on which Harry had hard time saving two souls, but triumphantly did it at the end without a moment’s hesitation saving both, then Dumbledore awarded him s…econd place (though he finished the task second to the last) because of Harry’s MORAL FIBER. I paused the remote and reflect. Just what is moral fiber Dumbledore is talking about? Then I realized it is the strength and ability to choose and act what you think is right in a difficult situation.
On March 31, 2017, I posted on Facebook regarding the character of Col. Carreon, from the primetime television series, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
Just a thought: Carreon’s character in #AngProbinsyano is multi-faceted. I can easily associate his character with that of Professor Snape in Harry Potter series. Both have access to information overload with what each party’s up to. How to use these information could make or break to which side they are most loyal to. Prof. Snape was unpredictable, so do with Carreon. The only difference is that, Carreon is heavily indebted to Joaquin in terms of financial matters, while Prof. Snape was “always” keeping his secret vow to protect Harry for his love of Lily. How Carreon will play his dual role by struggling to keep his police work and integrity intact, while supporting and feeding information to Joaquin, that’s ours to behold in future episodes. But I still believe, Carreon has still redeeming qualities left.
And yes, Carreon has redeeming qualities left. Fast forward this week’s episode, April 24 – 26, following the death of Col. Carreon’s daughter, a change of character reveals his true self. Last night, Carreon agreed to help Delfin proved Cardo’s innocence. He revealed to the media that Joaquin is alive and that the Tuazons’ are involved in illegal doings while Cardo is the one who’s innocent.
That makes unbearable people, bearable.
FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano is a 2015 Philippine action drama television series based on the 1997 Fernando Poe Jr. film of the same title, courtesy of FPJ Productions. Directed by Malu L. Sevilla, it is topbilled by Coco Martin, together with an ensemble cast consisting of Susan Roces, Arjo Atayde, Agot Isidro, Jaime Fabregas, and Eddie Garcia. The series is confirmed to air until January 2018 due to its high ratings, action scenes and “real life lessons” which was received well by the audience and also known to educate its viewers about Philippine laws and issues.
…let the rain fall down upon her
she’s a free and gentle flower, growing wild
..be careful how you touch her, for she’s awaken
and sleep’s the only freedom that she knows
…but if allowed just one possession
I would pick her from the garden, to be mine
…and a silent wind still blows
that only she can hear and so she goes
.. a free and gentle flower, growing wild
Who invented photo booths? Well, kodus to the modern concept of archiving memories both in digital and print format. Humans no longer toil years of hard work just to carve or etch figures like our cave ancestors did just to preserve family history and civilization. In today’s modern technology, we can store important events in just a matter of seconds. Now fronting my Nicholas Sparks’ novels is a paper frame taken from a booth in yesterday’s wedlock of my nephew, Marrion Ray Alvin Palarca with Generose Alcantara (now Palarca). With me in the photo is my niece Marriance Charisse Palarca – Ramos with her husband Elderson. They got married just last year, now blessed with a beautiful and smart daughter. How times fly so swiftly. It was not wasted though, as I watched my pamangkins grew from their childhood until now that they have families of their own. Celebrating love and life. To God be the glory!
