Brother and K+12

9:14 PM

I was like,











when I first read the book review by my favorite brother.
Kasi naman, pinagkakaisahan namin sya lagi dahil parang joke ang dating samin ng mga sinasabi at ginagawa niya pagdating sa academics lalo na sa English subject. Magaling sya sa Math, that is for sure at hindi maitatanggi yon. Sabi ng karamihan, pag daw magaling sa Math, mahina sa English. At ganun nga sya. But that was only OUR thought (not only mine cause even my sister and my mother think that way).  May pagkakataon nga sa bahay minsan na matitripan nalang namin na english ang conversation, hindi masyadong nakikipag-usap si brother at pag nakisali pa nga samin, natatawa pa ko. How mean, right? Haha. Pero ganon talaga, ate ako eh. Like a boss lang ang dating, kala kung sinong magaling. HAHA!
Pero these past few days, napahanga niya ko bigla sa mga sinasabi niya at mas lalo ng napahanga nung nabasa ko yung reaction paper niya sa English.

Ang trip na english conversation:
(Basta ang topic namin non ay love..)
Ate Imee: Love is the feeling from the hypothalamus.
Eydi: It's from the Cerebellum.
Jana: The Pituitary Gland.
Mama: What is the meaning of Cerebellum?
Aeron: It is the upper part of the Medulla Oblongata


We were dumbfounded, really. :O
But when I asked, "Are you sure about that?"
He answered, "Di nga lang ako sigurado."
At ayun, natawa nalang kami.
Pero infairness, mangha talaga kami nung nagsalita sya ng ganun.

At eto pa nga ang pinaka-kinamanghaan namin:
Aeron: Ma, 99% ako sa project ko sa English.
Mama: Oh? Di nga? 
Aeron: Ou nga po..
Ate Imee: Nako Ate Lei, ang galing nga ng gawa niyan ni Aeron. Nakita ko yang gumawa nun eh....
At ako na muna ang magkkwento ayon sa aking narinig..
Ayun nga, bago ako umalis ng bahay pabalik na sa dorm, nagtatanong si brother sakin tungkol sa kanyang project. Kaso nga, paalis na ko kaya di ko na sya natulungan ng ayos.
Project nila, magbasa ng isang Novel or any Literary book at gumawa ng isang simpleng book review. Si Aeron ang tipo ng bata na hindi talaga mahilig magbasa. Magbabasa lang yon pag sinabihan o kaya naman pag magrereview. Ang past time niya talaga, manuod ng TV, maglaro ng DS, o di kaya maglaro sa FB.
Few weeks before, he was already asking me what book should he read for this project. I told him just pick any book I have that would catch his interest. I just learned about the book he picked the day he was asking for my help. The book was THE VALKYRIES, written by Paulo Coelho. Di yon gano kahaba, at di rin ganon kahirap intindihin kaya sabi ko sa kanya, maganda yung napili niya.
Sa kwento ni Ate Imee, gumagawa daw si Aeron sa computer na walang hawak na kahit na anong libro. Hanga ako kasi ako ngang college na, pag gagawa ng kahit na anong summary, titingin at titingin ako sa nabasa ko para lang mareview. Pero ito daw si kapatid, sya lang talaga mag-isa ang gumagawa at hindi nagtatanong. Tinulungan lang daw sya ni sister nung nabasa at napansin na hindi man lang daw gumagamit ng punctuations si Aeron sa gawa niya. At ayun, dun palang daw sila nagbrain storming sa kung anu-ano pang english related.
Aeron with his medals. 1st honorable. (Akalain mo yun?) Haha
I'm just one proud sister.
But just yesterday night, we laughed at him again when he said:
Aeron: Kalinya ko ng gwapo si Brad Pitt at si Dennis Trillo eh.
Ako & Eydee: KAPAAAAAL!!
Aeron: DIDN'T I HANDSOME??
Tawanan nalang kami.
Gusto niyong mabasa ang gawa ni Aeron?
Eto oh, click this link: THE VALKYRIES.

He just graduated from elementary last Thursday, March 29, 2012.
The 2012 batch of elementary graduates are the first batch of students of the new curriculum of the Philippine education, the K+12.
I'll state a brief introduction to this K+12 curriculum as an introduction.
K+12 Program is new system of education initiated by the Aquino Administration. This requires the students to undergo kindergarten, 6 years of elementary, 4 years of junior high school and the added 2 years of senior high school.
The programs aims to uplift the Philippine's quality of education  for the graduates to be easily employed. Because for sure, students graduating from this program who are not planning to continue to college are already 18 years of age which is the minimum age to be employed.
It also aims to meet the standards required for professionals who would want to work abroad.
For more information about this, just watch the news or Google it. Hehe.
Aeron was a bit unfavor of this new system of education but he just cannot do anything about it. Oh well, I just hope this will help the nation's development.
