FUN RHYME SERIES 215 – THE SAGA SURROUNDING THE MARRIAGE OF MON & BECKY!

BECKY-MON

 [HAPPY 50th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY KUMPADRENG MON & BECKY!!!!] 

 

 

‘Twas good that it was REVEALED,

On the 50th  anniversary which got FULFILLED1

By MON’s friend who’s the only SURVIVOR2,

And he recounted the story with much FERVOR!

 

 

Per the account which was NARRATED,

MON felt that BECKY’s  U.S. trip was STAGED3;

Ostensibly, it was for supposed FURTHER STUDY for BECKY…

But, it turned out, ‘twas a STRATEGY!

 

 

A strategy to send BECKY AWAY,

From the amorous wooing of my KUMPADRE4;

Thus an elopement was PLANNED…     

But there is risk of being CANNED5!

 

 

 

And so after a date at the CINEMA in CUBAO,

MON, started to implement his SOLEMN VOW6;

That he will place BECKY on a embellished PEDESTAL7

As his lifetime partner, as MON broods too of a BRIDAL8!

 

 

 

And so they hied off to BAGUIO9, in a JIFFY!

As they were romantically ensconced on a seat in a TROLLEY10

And they were so much in LOVE with each OTHER…

As though their lips were soaked with HONEY and NECTAR!

 

 

 

And  the parents of BECKY got so CONCERNED and HORRIFIED…

They too learned BECKY’s CHAPERONE got BRIBED11,

They thought the CHAPERONE would serve as WATCHMAN…

The WATCHMAN however turned into a PACMAN12!

 

========================================================================

[Legend: 1 – FULFILLED – My Kumpadreng Mon aka Ramon M. Maronilla recounted during their 50th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY celebration at the Manila Polo Club on November 20, 2018 that the first time he proposed the celebration to BECKY aka Rebecca Fong-Maronilla, BECKY said NO. BECKY even jocularly uttered as some kind of a side remark when MON persisted in his plea for a celebration: “WHAT IS THERE TO CELEBRATE?” And the declination on the part of BECKY to celebrate persisted, for which reason MON said that it was the reason why he did not send out invitation cards to the celebration, as the 50th WEDDING CELEBRATION might not push through. But, eventually, the celebration got FULFILLED.

2 –  SURVIVOR – When Congressman Jerome Paras narrated the saga of MON and BECKY’s elopement which culminated in the couple’s marriage, Cong. Paras said that he is the only survivor among the supposed triumvirate of MON’s fraternity  brothers in the Upsilon Sigma Phi who planned with MON the elopement  except that they did not actually know when MON was supposed to implement it.

3 – STAGED –  The plan to send BECKY to the U.S.A. by her parents ostensibly to  FURTHER STUDY, was obviously staged for the principal purpose of sending her away from the view, reach and amorous tentacles of MON.

4 – KUMPADRE – Mon is the godfather of my youngest daughter, Ma. Winnalee E. Young aka ALEE.

5 – CANNED – being arrested and/or imprisoned. It turned out however that what was eventually filed then by BECKY’s parents was a mere petition for the issuance of a writ of habeas corpus and not a criminal complaint for ABDUCTION. Still however, in a habeas corpus proceedings, there is still the risk of being detained in case of a contemptuous act such as the failure to present the body of the subject of the habeas corpus proceedings in court.

6 –  VOW – Mon’s commitment and pledge to have BECKY as his wife.

7 – PEDESTAL – MON’s aspiration is to have BECKY as his wife whom MON adored and love so passionately and dearly to the extent of entertaining that aspiration to put BECKY on a pedestal to allow him to continuously adore, love, care and nurture BECKY.

8 – BRIDAL means wedding.

9 – BAGUIO is the Philippines’ summer capital as it boasts of a cool temperature and a somewhat rustic setting then. What is more BAGUIO is the place where MON’s eldest sister resides.

10 – TROLLEY is a slang term for a BUS. Mon and Becky actually rode a provincial bus bound for BAGUIO.

11 – BRIBED – As a chaperone was assigned by BECKY’s parents to watch and actually guard BECKY, just as to insure that BECKY would return home after that date in a Cubao cinema  with MON, MON was truly street-smart. MON gave the chaperone a thick wad of paper bills (i.e. money) and told the chaperone to loiter around the Araneta Center’s premises, window-shop and buy what would be nice and to take snacks as MON reportedly uttered: “MAGPAKABUSOG KA!”.

12 – PACMAN – is a character in a computer game which is pictured as one which devours and/or eats up anything along his path.]

 

 

FUN RHYME SERIES 216 – ANG PAG-IIBIGAN NI MON AT BECKY MARONILLA

BECKY-MON 

[At the 50th Wedding Anniversary of my Kumpadre, RAMON M. MARONILLA and his beauteous wife, BECKY FONG-MARONILLA; Congressman Jerome Paras was called upon to  speak about a relatively unknown and somewhat secret episode in the marital life of MON and BECKY (as Cong. Paras prefaced his story-telling with the caveat that he has been given permission by the couple and the family to unravel the “highly classified” matter) . And this FUN RHYME blog is a virtual re-telling in the vernacular of what the good Congressman (who is MON’s close friend and batchmate at the UP College of Law) unraveled.]   

 

Nakakatuwa ang narinig kong KUWENTO,

Noong isang gabi sa CLUB MANILA POLO…

Isinalaysay ito ni Cong. JEROME PARAS,

Maraming umigtad sa TUWA at GALAK!

 

 

 

Ang ISTORYANG ito ay ukol sa PAG-IBIG…

Ng dalawang mag-singirog maganda’t MAKISIG,

Si MON MARONILLA ang prinsipal na BIDA;

Si BECKY FONG naman ang minimithi nyang TALAGA!

 

 

 

Nang unang magsalpukan kanilang mga MATA…

Ang sabi ni MON: “Eto na ang aking PRINSESA!”

“Siya ang pangarap kong pang-habambuhay na ASAWA!”,

Dagdag na usal ni MON sa kanyang KONSENSIYA…

 

 

 

Eto palang si MON ay masidhing MANLIGAW,

Minu-minuto’y nakatanghod siya sa lahat ng GALAW…

Nitong si BECKY FONG na kanyang INAASAM;

Para bang may ESPIYA sya na talos na MAALAM!

 

 

 

Nakaramdam yata ang INANG ni BECKY..

Kaya ang naging plano  sa U.S. ay mag-“FURTHER STUDY”;

Naku, sabi ni MON, malaking DISGRASYA itong PIHO,

Itatago na ni INANG ang ESPOSA sa ESPOSO!

 

 

 

Syempre si MON ay tunay na NABAGABAG,

PAGTATANAN ang      PLANONG         pinag-usapan sa HAPAG;

Si Cong. PARAS ang isa sa naging TAGAPAYO,

Siguradong mga magulang ni BECKY ay MASISIPHAYO!

 

 

 

Marubdob ang PAG-IBIG ni MON kay BECKY,

Kaya isang araw ay nagyaya sa SINE…

Syempre may CHAPERONE, si INANG na IPINASAMA;

Pero nasuhulan ni MON kaya LIBRE NA!

 

 

 

Matapos ang sine’y tumungo sa  TERMINAL…

Sumakay sa BUS at naging ROMANTIKAL;

Sa BAGUIO dumatal sa tahanan ng kanyang TIYANG,

Feel na feel ni MON ang PAGIBIG nyang

IBINUYANGYANG!

 

 

 

Para nga naman maging SAGRADO

 ang TANAN…

Nagtungo sa ANGELES upang doo’y idaos ang KASALAN;

Syempre mga BRODS niya sa UPSILON,

Ang kasama sa madaliang ginanap na MARITAL UNION!

 

 

 

Eto na ang siste, may na-i-FILE na KASO,

HABEAS CORPUS case laban kay MON, iba pang TAO…

Pumatak sa HUKOM na si ANDRES REYES SENIOR;

Nagkaroon ng HEARING, but it did bring a CURE!

 

 

 

Sabi nga ni JUDGE eh, OF AGE na nga naman SILA,

At kasal na rin …wala nang magagawa PA!

Kumalma si INANG pati na si TATANG…

Pero si BECKY di nakaligtas, at sya’y nabatukan ni INANG!

 

 

 

 

At ang parting words nga ni CONG,

Sa kanyang KUWENTONG very LONG…

…”And they LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER”,

Indeed, the story-telling got filled with much LAUGHTER!

 

 

MULI, MALIGAYANG ANIBERSARYO SA INYONG MATAMIS NA PAGMAMAHALAN, MON AT BECKY!!!!

 

 

FUN RHYME SERIES 214:   ISANG ELEHIYA PARA SA KAIBIGAN KONG SI JUDGE FELIXBERTO “JUN” OLALIA, Jr.

 

[At right is the blown-up facial photo of Brod FELIXBERTO “JUN” OLALIA, Jr. which was placed adjacent to his coffin as his remains lie in state at the AGONCILLO Room at the MANILA MEMORIAL PARK CHAPELS. Interment was held at 9:00 o’clock this morning (November 18, 2018) at the same MANILA MEMORIAL PARK. At left, is the group photo of Brod JUN’s classmates at the UP College of Law: (From L to R- Atty, Alfredo M. Duran, Manila RTC Executive Judge Reynaldo A. Alhambra, who is also my frat brod in the PI OMICRON; myself and Atty. Ariel F. Abonal, who was formerly the Chief Legal Counsel of CALTEX. Attys. Duran, Abonal and Judge Alhambra are  from UP Law Batch 1978 like Brod JUN. As I stayed in the 5-year evening section program, I would have been part of UP Law Batch 1979 except that I took a leave for one semester and thus, I became part of UP Law Batch 1980.)]

 

 

Bagamat pumanaw na nga si Brod JUN,

Masasayang araw ang syang ating IPAGTUTUON…

Alaalang maliligaya dapat ay BALIKAN,

Upang samyo ng kalungkutan ay MAKALIGTAN!

 

 

 

 

 

Si BROD JUN mistulang aking GURO,

PERSONALIDAD ko’y umayos sa kanyang mga TURO!

Pati pag-sesepilyo ko’y kanyang PINANGUNAHAN…

“BAD BREATH” daw kasi ako, PAMINSAN-MINSAN!

 

 

 

Noong aming dekada  ang “AMBOY LOOK” ay naging USO,

Syempre si BROD JUN ang primero naming  MODELO…

Gayahan kaming lahat, PANTALONG MALULUWAG…

“BELL-BOTTOM” ang syang TAWAG, laylayang KAKAWAG-KAWAG!

 

 

 

Tunay na LIDER ang Brod kong ITO,

Kasi sa FRAT RUMBLE, may isang BROD akong NALITO…

Nahampas ni Brod OCA1, di pala KALABAN…

Naku! Kinuyog siya … si BROD JUN sya’y PINAGTAKPAN!

 

 

 

 

Niyapos ni BROD JUN si Brod OCA,

Kaya lahat ng suntok, kay BROD JUN TUMAMA;

Noon ko nasaksihan ang LEADERSHIP ni Brod JUN,

BUMILIB ako sa kanyang SO VERY QUICK ACTION!

 

 

 

Noon kami naman ay FRESHMEN sa LAW SCHOOL2

Mag-SEATMATE kami sa FRONTROW,   

yan ang sabi ni UTOL3,

Kelangan daw seryoso’t pakinggan naming MABUTE…

Mga LECTURES ng PROFS, lalo na si BALANE4!

 

 

 

 

Sa CLASS RECITATION kami’y lihim na NAGTUTURUAN,

Mahirap kasing MA-SINGKO5, tiyak may TUKSUHAN…

Kaya kami noo’y nag-organisa at nag-parti-parti ng ASSIGNMENT…

Sa daming CASES na assigned, bawat isa dapat may ABRIDGEMENT6!

 

 

 

Ipagdasal natin ang KALULUWA ni Brod JUN OLALIA,

Sa KALUWALHATIAN ng DIYOS sya’y humimlay nang MALIGAYA;

Mga itinanim nyang kabutihan sa ating MUNDO…

Tiyak ay aani ng BIYAYANG ESPIRITUAL na TUNAY na TODO-TODO!

 

 

============================================================================

[Legend: 1 – OCA is our fraternity brother OSCAR BADILLO. Perhaps, as OCA would occasionally see the student whom he struck often at the hang-out of our rival-fraternity, OCA thought all the while that the student was part of the rival-fraternity. It was unfortunate that the very place where OCA struck the student, was the hang-out of the fraternity to which the student belongs. Thus, OCA was immediately accosted by the brods of the victimized student (whom OCA struck with the hard-metal buckle of his leather belt) and OCA was hit and punched and continuously roughed up until Brod JUN shielded OCA with his (i.e. Brod JUN) own body.

2 – In June 1974, Brod JUN OLALIA and I became classmates (actually seatmates) as FRESHMEN in the UP College of Law.

3 – UTOL is a Tagalog slang which means  BROTHER, and is a reference to Brod JUN as he is my fraternity brother. Brod JUN egged me to seat with him in the FRONT ROW as he said that we ought to really make good this time in our  studies unlike the happy-go-lucky style which characterized our undergrad years. Brod JUN told me that as part of this new thrust of ours to procure a UP Law diploma, we ought to listen intently to our law professors and study laboriously everyday in preparation for the usual daily recitation in our classes. Brod JUN however transferred to the DAY SECTION starting in his sophomore year. I remember that even though Brod JUN transferred to the DAY SECTION, I took to heart his advice to really study hard. I made it a point to be consistently in the UP Law library even on Sundays. Despite my being a working student coming into UP Law in Diliman everyday from Tondo where I worked initially then as a Project Officer of the WORLD BANK-financed Tondo Foreshore Development Project, I landed number 16 in the graduating class of Batch 1980 (as I took a leave for a semester).

4 – BALANE is our Professor in PERSONS and FAMILY RELATIONS, during our Freshman Year at UP College of Law; whose full name is RUBEN F. BALANE.

5 – MA-SINGKO is a reference to a grade of “5” which is a failing grade. The system of grading then at UP Law was that the grade of “1”       is for EXCELLENT/OUTSTANDING class performance and the grade of “5” is a FAILURE; and a mere PASSING MARK is the grade of “3”. The numbers in between would be the scaled performance depending as to which end (i.e. the top of end, for a SATISFACTORY mark) while the low end would be some kind of UNSATISFACYORY mark. I believe a grade of “4” is a warning grade and is not a PASSING MARK. There is also an “INC” mark which means that the student needs to do some COMPLETION exercises such as term paper, a quiz which was not taken or an exam which the student failed to take.

6 – ABRIDGMENT would be a case digest or a case summary.]

 

 

FUN RHYME SERIES 213:   AN ELEGY FOR MY FRAT BROD  & FRIEND, JUN OLALIA aka JUDGE FELIXBERTO T. OLALIA, Jr.

[At left is the blown-up facial photo of Brod FELIXBERTO “JUN” OLALIA, Jr. which was placed adjacent to his coffin as his remains lie in state at the AGONCILLO Room at the MANILA MEMORIAL PARK CHAPELS. Interment was held at 9:00 o’clock this morning (November 18, 2018) at the same MANILA MEMORIAL PARK. At right, is the group photo of Brod JUN’s classmates at the UP College of Law: (From L to R- Atty, Alfredo M. Duran, Manila RTC Executive Judge Reynaldo A. Alhambra, who is also my frat brod in the PI OMICRON; myself and Atty. Ariel F. Abonal, who was formerly the Chief Legal Counsel of CALTEX. )]   

 

I first met him in February 1967,

As my FRAT MASTER1 wearing white polo, so finely WOVEN2;

He struck me as truly NEAT and CLEAN,

He’s so fastidious,  wants his shirt SMARTLY TUCKED-IN!

 

 

He became my seatmate at LAW SCHOOL3,

And became my PERSONALITY & DEPORTMENT MENTOR;

He gives a lot of advice as though drawing from a POOL…

Would suggest a PERFUME, when mine is BAD ODOR!

 

 

He’s  a valiant advocate of NATIONALISM,

Speaks highly of RECTO and  CONSTANTINO; those who espouse SOCIALISM!

He adores his DAD so very DEARLY,

KA BERT4 of KMU5… is his IDOL and HERO CLEARLY!

 

 

 

As a BROD and FRIEND, JUN is much CONCERNED…

Any misbehavior…for JUN,  would be surely SPURNED…

He’s a stickler about NEATNESS & GOOD ETHICS…

With peculiar HAND GESTURE, just one of his comic ANTICS6!

 

 

As a JUDGE, JUN was FAIR and JUST,

He was constantly so in the DOCK7;

Staying on trial even after TWELVE, but don’t ever KNOCK8

The MOTTO, SPEEDY JUSTICE, for him is a MUST!

 

 

I really owe a lot to Brod JUN,

If not for him, I would have been severely sanctioned;

I did a mischievous act which rocked our FRAT…

As HEAD of our FRAT, Brod  JUN just gave me a mere WRIST-SLAP!

 

 

 

Let’s pray for Brod JUN and for his family,

His parting I am sure would bring much LEGACY;

For JUN has taught and supplied much EDUCATION…

For me, his students9, lots of COMPANY10; were given CEREBRAL ERUDITION!

 

=========================================================================

[Legend: 1 – I joined the PI OMICRON FRATERNITY in February 1967 as a greenhorn neophyte and it was Brod Jun Olalia who gave me the first impression of the fraternity as a genteel and respectable organization.

2 – Brod Jun was fond then of wearing immaculately-clean white polo shirts and I would almost always perceive those white polo shirts as nicely sewn and finely designed.

3 – In June 1974, I and Brod Jun became classmates at the UP College of Law (Evening Section) and we were seatmates occupying the front row seats nearest to the professor’s table.It was Brod Jun who cajoled me to take a seat at the front row (while I was then intent to sit at the rearmost portion of the class) with him as my seatmate. Brod Jun advised me that it would be to our best interest (to be at the front row)  to be able to hear clearly the professor’s lectures and to be always attentive at class.

4 – KA BERT is Brod Jun’s father, who is Brod Jun’s name sake: FELIXBERTO OLALIA, Sr.

5 – KMU is the labor organization which Brod Jun’s father, KA BERT, founded and organized.

6 – Brod Jun when ever he would want to bring up laughter at times with jokes and antics (during our usual bonding at our hang-out) would usually mimic the gesture of a comedian, whose name I cannot already recall (senior moments), and we will all burst out into incessant laughs and wild guffaws.

7 – DOCK has the slang meaning which refers to a court trial.

8 – KNOCK has the slang meaning which refers to the act of criticizing.

9 – Brod JUN taught as a professor on business law at the PHILIPPINE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY.

10- Brod JUN was much involved, when he worked at his father’s office, in spreading education to a host of labor organizations and labor unions of various companies particularly with respect to the protection of labor unions and their respective members.]

 

 

FUN RHYME SERIES 212: MY SMART AND HANDSOME NEPHEW BARRY*

barry-photo

[BARRY is shown in this photo in an elegant, stylish and smart poise and stance…truly handsome and so smart. Amidst the seemingly nonsensical graffiti on the wall behind BARRY, my handsome and smart nephew emerges as the cool and refreshing breeze that gives SENSE to all those seeming helter-skelter confusion in life and in the business world. After BARRY’s scholastic stint at the Hongkong University in Science and Technology, I am sure  that with such a globally-oriented education, he will eventually emerge and become a business icon in our country animated with academic originality, open-mindedness, innovative spirit and a truly daring zest towards that can-do attitude.]

 

He’s the son of my brod WINSTON aka JING…

And WINSTON married a lady who’s an ABRA[1] offspring,

Being an ABRA folk, it has always been the TALK

 Those folks from ABRA are so versatile like the STALK[2]!

 

 

And BARRY could have inherited the VERSATILITY…

 ‘Tis BARRY’s skillfulness and true DEXTERITY!

He’s a CHARTERED FINANCIAL ANALYST[3] LEVEL THREE;

 A pride and joy for the clan & his FAMILY!

 

 

Alas, BARRY’s expertise was again shown at the FORE[4]

It was at the Hongkong University which I truly ADORE[5],

BARRY was WINNER at the CONTEST[6];

He zoomed with JOY and with much daring ZEST!

 

 

As BARRY was born under the GEMINI SIGN[7],

He truly is one who is so INTELLECTUALLY INCLINED…

BARRY is so relentlessly POSITIVE,

He always seeks for more INFO as though so ADDICTED!

 

 

BARRY is both LA SALLIAN[8] & ATENEAN[9],

He could be termed as the country’s best SCHOOLS’ SCION;

That’s perhaps the reason he’s good in BUSINESS…

But is it true that until now, BARRY is  still LOVELESS?

(I won’t believe it, as BARRY is certainly a craving lady’s “feast”!!!!)

================================================================

[Legend: * – BARRY  is Wilbur Belisario Young, the second child and the only son of the marital consortium between my brother WINSTON and his lovey-dovey wife, Ralita “Rally” Belisario-Young.

(1) – ABRA is a province in the Philippines which has positioned itself as the BAMBOO CAPITAL OF THE PHILIPPINES, the province from where Rally was born. And as ABRA stands for BAMBOO, its inhabitants/folks could be likened to the principal traits of a BAMBOO, as strong but so very resilient. And these traits virtually describe the principal character of RALLY, Barry’s mother and Jing’s wife.

(2) –STALK is some kind of a reference to the bamboo plant,  as it is deemed as so VERSATILE, by reason of the fact that it is strong but resilient and that it can grow as tall and woody or like a stalk particularly with respect to bamboos of the small variety which are herbaceous in character.

(3) – The Chartered Financial Analyst Program is a professional credential offered internationally by the American-based CFA Institute to investment and financial professionals. The program covers a broad range of topics relating to investment management, financial analysis, stocks, bonds and derivatives, and provides a generalist knowledge of other areas of business finance.

(4) – FORE – Early on, Barry was able to show that he really has that competence and skillful proclivity, knack and exceptional talent on business finance. And Barry after starting his further education in Hongkong only in July 2018; was able to exhibit his expert flair by emerging as winner in a scholastic contest held at the Hongkong University where he intends to further hone and enhance his qualifications as Chartered Financial Analyst.

(5) – ADORE – I am truly impressed with this Hongkong University of Science and Technology. It truly is a dynamic, international research university, in relentless pursuit of excellence, which leads in the advance of science, technology, business and humanities, and educating the new generation of front-runners for the world. Since its official opening in October 1991, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has established itself as an intellectual powerhouse, energizing the community’s transformation into a knowledge-based society, and securing a place on the academic world map in record-breaking time.

(6) – CONTEST – The scholastic contest which Barry won at the HKUST is the HKUST GLOBAL 2018 MBA INTERNAL CASE COMPETITION.

(7) – GEMINI SIGN – Barry was born on June 13, 1989 under the Gemini zodiac sign.

(8) –    LA SALLIAN – Barry attended GRADE SCHOOL and HIGH SCHOOL at the La Salle Greenhills. La Salle Greenhills is part of what is better known as the DE LA SALLE UNIVERSITY aka DLSU. DLSU  is identified by the Philippine Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as a “Center of Excellence” in six of its programmes, and a “Center of Development” in 3 of its programmes. The university is also among the 40 institutions granted autonomous status by CHED as of 2010. Likewise, it is the first of the only two institutions granted the highest-level accreditation (Level IV) by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU). The university ranks 151-160th and 601-650th in the 2013 Asian University Rankings and 2013 World University Rankings, respectively, published by Quacquarelli Symonds.

(9)  – ATENEAN – Barry attended COLLEGE at the ATENEO DE MANILA UNIVERSITY aka ADMU, particularly under its Loyola Schools program.  In 2005, the Loyola Schools programmes of the ADMU have been granted Level IV accreditation—the highest possible level—from the Philippines Commission on Higher Education (CHED) through the Federation of Accrediting Agencies of the Philippines (FAAP) and the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU). In 2011 it was also granted Institutional Accreditation by the same body, the first time that both citations were awarded to a university simultaneously. ADMU is one of the few universities granted autonomous status by CHED, which likewise recognizes a number of the university’s programmes and departments as Centers of Excellence and Centers of Development.]
