Just sharing!

As you probably know by now, classes have been suspended, albeit late, of course, by the DepEd due to inclement weather. Yes, right after I woke everybody up at 4:00 am, prepare for school, traverse some flooded areas just to get to school much earlier than we normally use to. Why? Because Mickey had to play violin in the mass and most of all, Kim, my youngest daughter, was to go on outreach to a place I don't know where to be with a foster family just so they can share food, some groceries, etc... I was urging the head of the activity to cancel as the weather was not good. However, since the skies cleared this morning, they went ahead as planned. Come lunchtime, I received a call from top management that classes are suspended. So, everything went haywire after that. Amid all these, my daughter was still at the site and was just about to leave. (good thing coz they were supposed to stay there the whole day)

So you see, there are a lot of things I have to be annoyed and be angry at. But that's not my style. I'll only die young from all that fretting and tension. So, instead, I'll blog and share with you a picture I took during our exhibit at Heritage Center of Shangri-la mallm Mandaluyong sometime in 1998. This is one of my paintings and it's entitled "Hala Hila". Looking on was my first principal (Mr. Ed Cadlum) and his wife, (Mrs. Cadlum, who else?) who happens to have been my wife's boss for sometime, and a very good friend of ours, Marissa. Hope you like it.

annoying isn't it. I just called your office to ask ms. padua if i can come half-day (for the afternoon) without an excuse letter (my mom was already out when I woke up) since I was sick this morning... when I found out that classes will be canceled, I still had to come to school because I have to fetch the passengers of the school bus and get stuff from my classroom to finish my homework...

at least i was able to don a spongebob t-shirt and denim shorts...

got here through balitang pransya. i read soft grumbles too...ang masasabi ko lang po, ang galing galing ninyo.
i am also a teacher. i teach kindergarten here in seoul south korea. your blog today reminds me of a time when it was raining so hard and i was wondering if classses will be suspended. they don't suspend classes here because of the weather. once, it snowed so hard, and classes were dismissed an hour earlier so that kids can play outside.
i'm beginning to feel homesick! i remember that we used to eat champorado with evaporated milk and tuyo on the side during typhoons.
once more with feelings, ang galing ng blog mo! =)

Jeez, I knew you were an art teacher but I didn't realize--until now--that you are quite an artist!

Ang ganda, Tito Rolly, and I'm not even a fan of abstract art. Pero, ang ganda!

Malapit na birthday ko ;)

Tito Rolly,
I am just wondering whether there are few things left you are not good at.

tito rolly, ang galing galing naman ng artwork mo! Bilib talaga ako! Ngayon alam ko na kung sinong i-co-commission ko for a painting kapag tumama ako sa pader este sa lotto.

Blogger ajay said...

Sabi nga nila ang ganda ng work...pwede bang itanong kung expensive ka?? kung medyo reasonable pa ang price, i'd advise everyone to lap up your works before you get as pricey as manansala. mabuhay tito!

7:33 PM  
Blogger BatJay said...

ayos sir. sabi na nga ba at maraming mga hidden talents mo. ang galing ng painting. dapat ay mag post ka pa ng mga pictures ng mga gawa mo.

wala bang pasok ngayon? sarap. kaya lang hirap nga dahil malayo ang school mo and you need to wake up early only to find out quite late that it's suspended. bad yon.

8:39 PM  
Blogger Kat said...

wow. galing mo naman! "maganda" doesn't do justice to describe your painting. you should post more pics of your work.

9:03 PM  
Blogger bayibhyap said...

hey, you're really a good artist. i am impressed indeed. talk about sharing...you've kept this secret to yourself until today!

will more paintings be posted for our benefit and appreciation, i wonder?

Hindi painting blog..samahan mo na rin ng catalogue. You're in business!! On the lighter side..o di ba, di mo kailangan ng stress?

Hello Tito Rolly. Good morning sayo! Gising ka na siguro? Wala daw pasok ngayon...hehehe...according to AM radio. Mukhang tinatalban naman mga damuho.

I know you won't get mad over these problems of ours. Your painting tells a lot about your personality. You show a vivid picture of struggle and yet it puzzles the viewer why you use yellow almost on every face of the figures. So I think your tendency to mix happiness (signified by the happy yellow) with struggle helps you hurdle most of your problems. Your style is a hybrid of Braque, Picasso, and Magsaysay-Ho. GALING MO!!! Its difficult to master analytical cubism and take it to a higher level of positivism. Bow kaming lahat sa yo! Lahat ba ng paintings mo ganito?

Tama sila. Gawa ka ng separate painting blog and then tell a story about each of them. Bakit kaya sinabi ni Ate Sassy na malapit na bday nya? ;) Sayang! Ako tapos ng mag-birthday.

Yaps ikaw naman, papasok ka rin lang pala, hindi pa nung umaga at nang hindi mo na-miss yung mga lessons for the day :-)

Hello Anna. Welcome to my little nook in cyberspace. the owner of balitang pransiya used to be my co-teacher and a very good friend of mine. If you were a student during the 70's, malayung-malayo na. Ang DepEd ay takot ng mag-declare ng no classes kasi parati silang nabubulilyaso noon. Pag nagdeclare, gumaganda panahon. E mga kutis sibuyas, ayun, ipinasa ang trabaho sa mga mayor. Kaya kagulo... Buti naman at nagustuhan mo dito. Balik ka lang ha. Ang lamig daw diyan sa Korea pag winter... brrrrr!

matapoor Thanks, I just might do that.

Blogger rolly said...

Sassy Alam ko, tapos na birthday mo kasi nakuha mo na yung bagong computer. hehe Anyway, deal... mas malapit na birthday ko... in a few more weeks...hehehe

Santi there are tons of things I cannot do i'd like to know how.

Lang problema Celia Basta pagtyagaan mo lang...

Ajay I'm not a known artist. I stopped circulating for a long time. I got stuck at teaching. Kaya mura lang ang mga painting ko. This painting I can sell for Php12,000. The gallery asked for 60 grand. Kaya lang this is gift to my wife so its in my living room.

Blogger rolly said...

Batjay Tingnan natin if I have enough. I stopped painting. Lang time. I just might post painting within my two blogs. If I manage to do more, I may take up TingAling's suggestion and put up a catalogue. Matutuwa misis ko, kasi I'll be earning at the same time I'm engrossed over the computer. Kung may magkakainteres, that is...

Kat Thanks a lot.

Bayi Yes, all I've been showing were works of my kid. Guess I have to show some of mine, too. After all this is my blog... hehe

8:37 AM  
Blogger rolly said...

Mik Maybe someday when I have enough to show.

Cath kasarap naman pakinggan comment mo at nilang lahat. Very encouraging.

Rache I guess that's my secret weapon. Keeping cool when I'm outside the house. Inside the house, minsan grumpy din ako. Especially when you have four brats na naglalandian. Naku, kaiingay.

8:40 AM  
Blogger rolly said...

TingAling I just might take your suggestion... Kung marami na lang sana akong ipon. Naubos na. All I have are pictures of my works. Oh, got your email. Might do that, kaso wala akong scanner, nasa school e walang pasok. HALELLUJAH! Nag-decide din ang DepEd.

jonix haha ayaw kilalanin ang name mo. Baka mumurahin computer mo. Alam mo naman ako, suplado sa personal bwahahahaha

Nice painting, sir! On another note, PAG-ASA says that the weather might still become worse today. Ayaw pa ngang mag-cancel ng DLSU and CSB, inencourage lang daw ng CHED to send the students home while the weather's still manageable...

i went through the same hell last wednesday. had my calculus finals in the afternoon so i woke up extra early to review my notes. then of course they cancelled the test five minutes before it was scheduled to start and moved it to monday. i really should've just slept in.

btw do you know alberto gonzales? his son miko's in a few of my classes and over dinner one time he mentioned your name in connection with my being a zobelian. small world, eh?

lady luck is fickle as they say in Carmina Burana... but i just wish that the DepEd would have the foresight to suspend classes. It has always been afflicted by the "last minute" syndrome where they announce suspension in the middle of the typhoon.

That's a very impressive piece Tito.

That reminds me very much of Imelda Marcos' mural in the Phil. Heart Center, and a couple of other pieces that look pretty much like this one.

Siguro kung nakita ni Imelda Marcos yan, binili na niya yan sayo... hehe.

Twenty years of teaching must sure amount to something. A new friend in cyberspace suggested I ought to have a journal by now. I agree.

Jack of all trade, master of none. First a disclaimer. My students have discovered this blog and they might think that what I write is gospel truth. Worse is they might find an argument that they think they can use, for some reason or another, against their teachers. So, to set the record straight, it is NOT. As a matter of fact, I write and open it to feedback to get another view in the hope that somebody would tell me if I am wrong and reenforce my thinking if it is right. Not that I will accept anything thrown my way, though. Just so I can think about it some more and decide whether my original stance is right or definitely off tangent. So there. I hope that clarifies everything. Now, on to blogging.
