Summerkadahan is one of the summer programs of our Honorable Congresswoman Darlene Antonino-Custodio. This are one of those programs where sports plays as the cure for the bad vices that our young people of today..
Summerkadahan had been going on for years.. From being one of the manager’s for a Basketball Team upto this date, somehow i am still connected with this program.. This is one of those things that i cannot leave.. right now, i am one of the Speakers for the Healthy Lifestyle Promotion among the young people participating in this program.. for this year, my group was assigned to handle the kids from POLOMOLOK.. yes the whole place..
Well, im not going to make a report on how our one day activity per barangay went.. i’ll spare another page for that.. this will be totally regarding the speaker’s fee that we will be receiving after a job (i hope) well done..
This post will serve as my memory lane for the conversation i had with some people regarding the said FEE.. Expect to see text conversation in this post..
ME on learning that we will only be paid with Php 200.00 per day
AHK1: dimpz, 2hundred lang daw nadungug ni ASST BOSS
ME: Guys. 2hundred lang daw ang per day. what can you say about that?
AHK 1:shit! ana lang? ingna brian xa explain nanu ana man.
AHK2: Lain au poi. unfair ui.
Now ME, texted the BOSS..
ME: Gudnun. we just want to confirm kung 2hundred lang ang rate sa speakers. if its true, we strongly opposed to that. great disappointment- AHK.
THE BOSS: Kinsa nagsulti sa inyo nga 2hundred ang hon sa speaker?
ME: wE have inquired from your ofice.. and sir ASST BOSS gave us the figure. that is why, we like it to confirm from your end
after half hour…
THE ASST. BOSS: Gudpm.. what god ang honorarium ninyo last year sa anti-drug?
after few minutes
ME: Sir. haVe u read our proposal? We have placed there the speakers fee as per advised. Whats the purpose of submitting it? kung dili mu conforme atu, at least gpa edit unta ninyo
THE BOSS: Wala man ko naghatag og figure bisag kay kinsa kung pila ang honorarium
THE BOSS: C brian man naga adto diri opis para mag follow up sa inyong proposal
THE BOSS: c brian lang ang nagapakita sa amoa diri sa opis cya pud ang na inform nako nga dili masunod ang tanan sa inyong proposal
ME: mR. estrellan is part of the team.. it was his task to do the follow up.. he informed us dat 5hundred cant be given. but that doesnt mean nga 2hundred lang sir. we will not react kung dili nag gikan sa inyuhang OFIS and information sir.
THE BOSS: as wat i told you i dont gve any figure yet as how much is da speakers hon, kung may reklamo kau see me in person here in da opis
THE ASST. BOSS: Ple, visit lng mo dre ofis para ma-istoryahan ang inyo honorarium kay lapse nko to kay wa jud nakabungat si THE BOSS ug amount diay. ang ako namention ganiha proposal diay to sa laing account
This may be a petty reason to be mad about. For some, they may think nga HANGOL mi ug kwarta.. The money is not the issue here.. We are fighting for our worth..
It may not be a Herculean Task per se, but speaking in front of young people and promoting healthy lifestyle among them is not easy.. Plus the fact that we go to a different route every weekend.. with all the LUBAK and ABUG.. nevermind the init ng araw.. One of our member even stayed in the hospital for 4 days because of stree + abug + dehydration.. Nakakahiya man.. oo nagrereklamo kami.. but MR. THE BOSS.. give to JUAN what is due for JUAN..
p.s. we have a reliable source.. YES YOU DID MENTIONED ITS 200.. don’t be too defensive..
GOD BLESS us all!
