How My Soldier BF Got Over His Loneliness After I Went Abroad

A will tell you a little background. But, if you are a follower of PMG/Proud Military Girl, you will follow through this post. But why in the first place I left him for a “greener pasture?” Actually, it didn’t just happen.

I told you in my previous post, “10+ Things To Do While Waiting For His R&R” that one of the deepest dents we had in our relationship was his first assignment.  During his Cadetship, and his month-long vacation after Graduation, I was there, and then came his deployment. He was brought to the South super far from me! First assignment, Mindanao. Typical area where Luzon Soldiers were being  deployed. I was really devastated. CONTINUE READING

9 Reasons Being A Military Spouse Is The Toughest Job In The Military

“It’s not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what is required.” -Winston Churchill

A military wife goes through a lot of things but chooses to keep it to herself because she doesn’t want to bother her family or friends, after deciding to marry the love of her life, who happens to be in the military. That’s why, those emotions and thoughts were only kept unsaid and remained as secrets that only those who go through it could understand. Nevertheless, here are some of the things which justify why being a military spouse is the toughest job in the military. CONTINUE READING

7 Life Hacks I’ve Learned From My Soldier

A part of being with someone means learning their ways or adapting their own thinking and somehow, without intention, you tend to apply it in your own day-to-day life.

I’ve been in a relationship with an MIU (man in uniform: then-Cadet/Soldier) for almost 8 years, and I can say, a lot of his own “ideals” in life, I tend to actually adapt into my own life.

He is a Soldier, generally, we could conclude that he should be protective and strict, yes protective, and a little bit strict at times, and since we are soon to build a family of our own–a Military Family at that, he tends to be so heedful about the values we cultivate as a couple.

6 Reasons Every Military Wife/Gf Should Visit The ‘Camp’

“Behind every strong soldier, there is a strong woman, who stands behind him, supports him, and loves him with all her heart.” -Anonymous

Most of the military women especially spouses have formed the habit of staying at home. They wait for their Soldier knocking by their house’s doorstep, and some divert their longing and focus their attention to take care of their kids or manage the house. But this habit of not visiting your military partner in his work area doesn’t usually help the relationship grow, sometimes, it leads to future gap or misunderstanding.

After having asked military spouses who stayed stunning even after giving birth, and from collected experiences of awesome military girlfriends, and Officers’ Girls, here are some of the many reasons why every Military Wife/Gf should visit their man in the Camp. CONTINUE READING

8 Things Only A Military Wife/Girlfriend Will Understand

When you are in a military relationship, chances are, you are always being asked by your friends what it really feels like loving someone who is a thousand miles away from you, and chances are, no matter how you explain your thoughts and feelings to them, they will never understand you, unless they’ll experience it firsthand.

In behalf of the minority, and representing the “silent” background of the strife, allow me to share with you this reality, and what it really feels like loving a Soldier. CONTINUE READING

9 Cute But Annoying Things Your Cadet BF Tells You

1.

Situation: Pagkatapos niyong kumain at nakaupo pa kayo sa table kung saan kayo kumain, say, sa food court or any other restaurants, tapos ikaw: bigla kang naglabas ng mirror kasi titignan mo lang naman kung meron kang dumi sa mukha or ngipin… sasabihin niya, “My, hindi dito ang tamang place para magmake-up, ‘dun ka dapat sa sink.”

2.

Everytime na kakain ka ng certain fruit, like saging, sasabihin niya, “Alam mo ba My, tinuruan kaming kumain ng ganyan in a formal way, parang ganito ‘ata iyon.” Tapos kukunin niya iyong knife, itatry niyang i-fruit ninja iyong saging, mula sa balat, hanggang sa magiging bite size na lang. Hahaha omg

Memoirs of A Kaydet Girl

This article was originally published in The Corps Magazine, the Philippine Military Academy’s Cadet Corps Magazine, Alumni Issue 2011. Original title: “Memoirs of A Weekend Girlfriend.”

*****

“Nakauwi ka na ba? Musta pala iyong pinanood mong movie?”

These were the last words he sent me through SMS. It was only 2030H then and it was Saturday. It’s the 30th day of October to be exact. I thought he just fell asleep because of the exasperating activities he is doing habitually inside the academy. After an hour, I texted him again, saying,

“Sleep tight, antukin ka talga. Nga pala, wag kang masyadong malungkot dyan ah kahit mag-isa ka sa barracks. Nand2 lang ako sana hindi mo iyon maklimutan! Good night, my Indian! ^^”

Waking up from nowhere from one of my midnight sleep-awakening episodes during that night, I reached out for my cellphone, expecting a message from him. Nothing. So I just continued my sleep and thought that maybe he was just back from the routine of logging in the cellphone and so much of that what-have-you’s inside.
October 31, November 1, 2, nothing… 4 days… 5 days… 6 days… still, there’s no text from my beloved Cadet. CONTINUE READING

LOVE OF A LIFETIME

CHAPTER 1: Find Out

September 17, 2010, Friday

Matapos ang limang araw na bagbagan sa acads (academic bombardment), heto, busy na naman ang Cadet Corps sa paglilinis ng kwarto, pagsa-shine ng lahat ng sapatos pati lahat ng metal parts na gagamitin sa parada at pagpe-prepare sa buong barracks para naman every is happy sa buong weekend dahil may privilege kami…

September 18, 2010, Saturday

So heto na nga, Sabado na. Barracks and Ranks Inspection na naman, pagkatapos, Testimonial Parade and review para sa bisita. Normal routine na sa mga Kadete ang Parade and Review every Saturday.

So after ng Parade, vaultfiles nag 60- 60 (ngmamadali) ang lahat para magbihis ng Dress White para sa noon mess. Muntik ko ng makalimutan MOG (Messenger Of the Guard) pala ako. Ito yung mga duty guards na nag i-entertain ng mga bisita sa MAGILAS Visitors Lounge, Lopez Hall at PMA Museum at nag-eexplain sa kanila kung may mga tanong sila about sa Academy or may hinahanap silang kadete. So excuse ako sa noon mess at dumiretso na ako sa MAGILAS Visitors Lounge. Kasama ng ibang MOG, doon lang kami patayu-tayo, palakad-lakad. Tapos lilipat na naman sa Lopez Hall.

After noon, may mga bisita nang pumasok at ngtatanong, so ini-entertain naman naming nang maayos. Kamay, Ngiti, Bati ‘ika nga.

PMG Notes: Guys, gusto kong magreact like hell sa sobrang kilig, hehe buti na lang hindi ako si Shane. Lol Grabe lang talaga. It was June of 2010, anong ginagawa niyo nung mga panahong iyon? Ako, ilang months pa lang niyan nung nakilala ko si Sancho at wala akong idea where it will lead, pero si Kim&Sai, they all have their lives figured out, as early as 2010, while everyone’s not having any clue even on what to get for lunch on that day. This is so amazing. This is so beautiful not to share to the world.

Again, thank you Sir Kim and Ms Sai for entrusting your delicate stories to PMG.  <3 Super love love.

“God’s Time is Always Perfect” -Sai N.

This is a post in response to the recently posted article, “IMMEDIATELY: This Word I Wouldn’t Want To Hear Before”

I was actually ranting about my thoughts once again, about my dearly beloved Soldier, and how we managed to stay steadfast for more than 7 years, yet, still not deciding to tie the knot. (This is of course before The Proposal happened).

I’ve realized a lot when one of our readers responded to this rant post of mine LOL, it came to me that I have all I need in the world because I have him, and to really entrust my faith in God in order to conquer my doubts for myself, and fears for the future.

After you have read the article, “IMMEDIATELY: This Word I Wouldn’t Want To Hear Before” please read the following advice from Miss Sai, this is worth a read, everyone.

In reply to this post:
IMMEDIATELY: This Word I Wouldn’t Want To Hear Before

(Ayaw ko na i-comment dun, masyadong mahaba eh.)

I read it, from the start to the very end. Let me tell you a short story before giving you an advice

My husband, then a Cadet was sent out from the Academy for some reasons. Na-turn back siya and he is waiting for a letter from PMA para makabalik siya. That is when we meet each other again.

Naging kami, then he asked me to marry him. That time he was working in a company with a good salary, may trabaho din ako. So parang financially stable naman kami. I prayed and asked God, is it the right time? I trust in Your perfect timing. Just a few days after that, he received a letter from PMA. I told myself, hindi pa right time ni Ama and I told him, go reach for your dreams. I will be here patiently waiting for you.

During the time that he was inside the Academy, I busied myself working because I have to pay for my sibling’s education. I also wanted to take master’s degree and also be a lawyer. But due to financial reasons, anak lang kami ng “Mess Kit” (a term they refer to children of ordinary soldiers or enlisted personnel) I have to he set aside my dreams to give way to my siblings.

Fast forward, he graduated from the academy. He again, asked me na mag-immediately na, I declined. I told him to spend time with his family and focus on his career and his dreams of becoming a pilot. I told him I’ll decide after he graduates from Military Pilot Training.

Just as he was about to graduate from MPT, my sister is also graduating from college and I am so happy that at last I could now spend my earnings to get a law degree. A week before his graduation, he again asked me to marry him. I told him my take on the situation. He took me to the nearest church, told me let’s pray for this. And on the night of his graduation he told me this: “Alam ko marami ka pang pangarap. Marami kang gustong marating. Pero gusto ko kasama mo ako sa pagtupad ng mga pangarap mo. Ayoko na wala ako sa tabi mo kapag masaya ka, malungkot ka… gusto kong bumawi. Wala ako nung grumaduate ka ng college, wala ako nung unang sweldo mo, wala ako nung ma-promote ka… gusto ko this time kapag naging abogado ka, nasa tabi mo ako. Gusto ko habang inaabot mo ang pangarap mo hawak mo ang kamay ko.” Hearing those words made my heart melt and told myself, man! This man really loves me. That’s the moment I said yes.

**ADS HERE: PAANO KUMITA NG EXTRA SA INTERNET: CLICK ME TO FIND OUT**

Now my advise:

1. This is the most important of all, ask God for his perfect time. God’s time is never late nor early, it is always perfect.

2. Natatakot ka na baka you’re not good enough for him… no honey. You are the one for him. He chose you from among all the women he met. And always remember, you are to be his wife. Your goal is to be with him forever and support him, you are not just an “Ayer’s wife” you are his wife. Sinabi ko noon sa asawa ko, ayokong maging asawa ng opisyal. I married you beacuse I want to be your wife, not an officer’s wife. Kung naging sarhento ka lang or security guard, I would still marry you.

That’s it. Just pray and ask for God’s help and for sure everything will fall on its right place.

PMG NOTES: You know what, after reading this again, I actually felt enlightened, and I actually felt I am adequately capable to be my man’s future wife. Once again, thank you Miss Sai for your unending support, I know you are very busy pursuing your Law Degree, but you still manage to read my stories. Special mention to Sir Arkim, welcome to PMG! Thank you for reading the stories, grabe Sir, you are simply the best, sobrang nakakakilig ang Proposal mo. To God be all the Glory!

Love Of A Lifetime: Chapter 3

LOVE OF A LIFETIME

Read Chapter 1: “FIND OUT”

Read Chapter 2: “CALLING AND WAITING”

PMG Notes: This story was contributed by a former Cadet (now an Army Officer), whose love for his girlfriend is unsurmountable, he has to immortalize their story LOL. Itago na lang daw natin siya sa pangalang Cadet J, isa raw siyang simple at mapagmahal na nilalang. Ehem. Actually guys, hindi lang siya basta-bastang Cadet. He graduated top in his class, biruin niyo, hindi lang talaga brawn and brains ang mga Cadets natin, meron din silang big love na nakatago sa dibdib nila (hindi lang halata hehe!). In fairness nakakakilig ang kwento niya. This story is from a Cadet’s POV, first in PMG. Thanks, Cadet J, for trusting PMG!

CHAPTER 3: UNCERTAINTY

After ng ilang oras kong paghihintay na sagutin ang tawag ko or dumating iyong text kong na-traffic sa session road or ‘di kaya sumabit dun sa mga ngtataasang pine trees at nilalamig na, hindi pa rin ako nawalan ng pag-asa. Naghihintay pa rin akong umilaw ang makamandag kong cellphone nagbabakasaling mag-reply siya…

Mag 2100H (9pm) na. Malapit na ring matapos ang privilege naming gumamit ng cellphone, so medyo na-lo-low morale na ako kasi mukhang #PAASA lang talaga ang tunay na pag-ibig ko.

Uyyy… umilaw…at dahil dyan may nag-text..

“Sino po sila?” ‘di ko pa na-i-save ang number niya pero dahil bago pa ang sim card ko, siya na talaga ito.. Double check Cadet…

Positive… Siya nga… yehey…. yesss!!!

Alam mo iyong feeling na parang gusto kong gumulong-gulong sa bunks ko at napapangiti ako sa tuwa na ‘di ko ma-explain…

Mahirap ding ipakita sa roommate ko baka i-report ako at madala sa ward 24 (hahaha)…

Ano kayang gagawin ko? Tatawagan or i-text..pati ba naman dito naguguluhan pa ako… Sabi ko na nga ba.. na-traffic iyong message ko sa Session Road…

Decision points… Text or tawag?

Tinawagan ko na…

aheeemmm..

ahhheeemmmm..

aaahhheeeemmm…

Tinesting ko muna iyong boses ko at iyong sasabihin ko… ano kayang mga mabulaklak na linya ang bibitawan ko? Naguguluhan na naman.. Pero never mind..alam ko namang hindi rin effective ang mga rehearsals ko..

Eto na.. kring… kring… kringg…

“Hello? Sino to?”… Wooowwww… Naks naman … Ang lambing ng boses.. mala-anghel… Pilit kong nirerecall kung siya nga ba ito. Baka ma-wowmali ako..Confirmed..Siya nga…

“Hi maam” (hahaha) vaultfiles na intro ko… “Ako po pala yung kumuha ng number niyo kanina.”

“Aaahhh okay”… wow vaultfiles din iyong sagot niya… Isa sa mga malalaking hamon is paano ko makuha yung attention niya at kausapin ako…pero hindi ko pwedeng i-detalye ang mga TTPs ko.. Baka gayahin ng iba (hahaha)…

Parang ang bagal ng oras.. Alam mo iyong feeling na parang ang tagal na naming magkakilala.. Siguro dahil na rin sa mga binitawan kong mga salita na parang malalasong sibat na tumatagos sa puso niya (hahaha)….

So ito na… Nagkatanungan na…ang dami-dami ko na sinabi hindi ko pa pala alam iyong pangalan niya…pero na sa akin iyon.. Kasi para naman akong nagkaka-amnesia sa mga oras na iyon dahil nakalimutan kong tapos na pala yung privilege namin…

Bawal na ang cellphone… Ibabalik ko ba ang makamandag kong cellphone? Or hayaan ko nalang ma-huli at ma-report ako (iyon lang kung kaya akong hulihin ng OC hahahaha)..

So nagtake life ako..para lamang hindi maputol ang aming mala-paraisong usapan at malaman ko na rin kung sino siya…tuloy ang ligaya ni Cadet…nagpakilala na ako…tapos nagpakilala rin siya..

Nung sinabi niya yung pangalan niya…napa-smile ako… Naalala ko kasi iyong commercial…(hahaha)..

Gagamit sana ako ng alias pero hindi ko na ginawa… sinabi ko na iyong totoo.. Full name pa talaga.. Kulang na lang yata pati iyong serial number ko sabihin ko na rin…

**ADS HERE: PAANO KUMITA NG EXTRA SA INTERNET: CLICK ME TO FIND OUT**

After kong masabi iyong full name ko, ayun napabilib niya ako agad… Siguro magaling siya sa scrabble or text twist… Pinagraramble niya iyong last name ko.. Wow… Ang daming words na nabuo… Maasar sana ako dahil sa pag-murder niya sa last name ko pero natawa nalang ako… sa halip, sinabi ko sa kanya “Tandaan mo yang last name na yan kasi yan iyong magiging last name mo sa future” …ang tibay ko talaga (hahaha)…i-daan nalang natin sa tibay ng loob…

Hindi naman siya naasar.. Natuwa naman.. Woooowww… Effective na naman…

Siguro may psychological effect iyon…hindi namin namalayang mag-2400H (12MN) na pala.. Ang haba ng usapan namin.. Unang usapan palang naming iyon ha.. Kahit walang sense iyong mga banat ko minsan okay lang sa kaniya…

Kaya pala hindi niya nasagot iyong tawag ko agad kasi ibang number pala binigay niya..wooowww…magaling din eh..
Muntikan akong maisahan dun ahh… “Nagsimba pa kasi ako”…ay nag-simba naman pala.. Kaya pina-tawad ko na lang sa unang offense niya (hahaha)…

So we call it a night… Sleep na si Miss K….Sleep na rin si Cadet na pangiti-ngiti… Hirap palang kiligin eh…

The next night ganun ulit…Dahil linggo after mass… Kuha na agad ng cellphone… Ayun umuulan na naman ng mga umaatikabong messages…. Kapag napagod sa kaka-text, tawag na naman.. Hanggang gabi… Tuloy tuloy ang ligaya… So kahit isang beses palang kaming nagkita parang napagaan na ang loob namin sa isat isa.. Iba talaga ang nagagawa ng mga mabulaklak kong salita na gusto kong pitasin at ibigay sa kanya (hahaha)…

Papalapit na iyong exam week namin nun.. Pero tuloy-tuloy pa rin si Cadet.. Iyong tipong sasabat na iyong roommate ko, “Huwag kang maniwala dyan… Binobola ka lang niyan” o kaya naman… “Bok, iba na naman ba iyang kausap mo? Si Anne ba iyan?” Siguro kung gawan lang yan ng album sa kanta, nag-platinum at nag-number 1 n yan sa billboard… tsk tsk tsk

Dahil sa itong mga roommates ko naintriga na dahil nalipat na yata iyong Call Center Office sa room namin… Nagtanong sila kung sino raw ba ang kausap ko gabi-gabi at parang hindi raw matatawaran ang mga katagang aking binibitawan… Gusto rin maki-chismis itong mga roommate ko eh… Sinabi ko nalang, “Siya ang babaeng muling nagpatibok sa aking malumbay at nalulungkot na puso” … Parang ayaw nilang maniwala…(hahaha) Ganun ba talaga? ‘Pag nagsasabi ka ng totoo mahirap paniwalaan?

Isang Lunch time namin… Habang papauwi kami ng barracks from Mess Hall… May isang grupo doon malapit sa View Deck. May 3 babae at may ibang mga bisita na namamasyal sa Academy…

To my surprise… Parang may shock effect… Napatigil ako…Parang familiar iyong figure nya…Artistahin…Maputi… Maganda.. Parang kilala ko to ahh…

’Di ko alam iyong gagawin ko.. Siya ba ito or nagha-hallucinate lang ako ng tanghaling-tapat…

**ADS HERE: EARN EXTRA ONLINE: CLICK ME TO FIND OUT**

Siya nga… Siya nga ito.. Anong ginagawa niya dito? Na-miss ba niya ako? Gusto niya ba akong makita? Nawala ba cellphone niya kaya ‘di na siya nag-inform?… Siguro ‘di niya ako napansin kasi sa dami ba naman naming bumababa sa 51 steps…

Siya nga talaga.. Na-hokage moves yata ako ahh.. Hokage pala ito…

Pero dahil Ninja din ako.. Pa-simple akong lumapit sa kanila…

Woooowww…. Nagulat siya…ako ngayon iyong naging Hokage.. ‘di niya akalain na makikita ko siya.. ‘di niya alam parang scanner ‘tong mata ko..

“Hi po, kumusta? Anong gawa niyo dito?”

Hindi pa siya nakasagot, may nag-chorus na sa likod ko (parang proposal ang dating)

Mga isang company na mang-aawait.. pang-choir talaga… ang galling.. Sabay na nga, may intonation pa.. pang-Pitch Perfect na galawan…“Uy..sino na naman yan,?” (Iba na naman yan ahhh).. “Si Anne, Fe, Grace,etc ba yan?”

Ayan, ang ganda ng linya nila.. pang-billboard na talaga….

Ang galing… Natawa nalang sila…

Niyaya ko silang mag-post commissary para naman makasama ko siya nang matagal-tagal…para na rin at least maamoy ko kung ano pabango niya…

Pero hindi ko siya pwedeng mahawakan.. Hanggang tingin-tingin lang muna si Cadet.. For my eyes only…

Alam mo iyong feeling na gusto ko siyang kurutin.. Gusto kong pisilin ang chubby chubby niyang pisngi (hahaha)… Gusto ko na asana mahawakan ang kanyang mga kamay pero hindi pwede eh…ma-report pa ako…(hahaha)

Hanggang sa umuwi na nga sila… Pinasakay ko muna ng taxi… Habang papalayo iyong taxi…naging cyclops na naman iyong mata ko.. Parang gustong butasin iyong body ng taxi Makita lamang siya…

Is this for real? Am I inlove? Or it’s just an illusion… or I’m just being fooled by my emotions? If I’m falling into her world, should I let the gravity to drag me there?

PMG Notes: This story was contributed by a former Cadet (now an Army Officer), whose love for his girlfriend is unsurmountable, he has to immortalize their story LOL. Itago na lang daw natin siya sa pangalang Cadet J, isa raw siyang simple at mapagmahal na nilalang. Ehem. Actually guys, hindi lang siya basta-bastang Cadet.

In fairness nakakakilig ang kwento niya. This story is from a Cadet’s POV, first in PMG. Thanks, Cadet J, for trusting PMG!

CHAPTER 2: CALLING AND WAITING

So after ng matagumpay kong mission na ma-find out ang number ni Miss Artistahin… Ooooppppssss… actually di ko pa ‘ata alam iyong pangalan niya (hahaha)

Kasi iyong mission ko lng ay ma-find out iyong mobile number niya at dahil mission accomplished, diito na naman papasok ang aking mga natutunan sa Tactics. Ito ang tinatawag nilang Pursuit Operation (Follow Up Operation)… Dapat malaman ko kung sino siya. 😀

Sa napaka-regimented na buhay ng isang Kadete sa loob ng Academy, dapat mabilis ang iyong mga galaw. Mabilis ka dapat mag react sa bawat situation. Pero sa nakaraang situation, hindi ko na-apply iyon.. tsk tsk Pero ganyan talaga…

So hapon na nga. Umalis na rin sila. Kami nalang magmi-Mistah ang naiwan habang hinihintay na matapos iyong posting namin. Nakatatak pa rin sa aking isipan ang mukha na kahit mas tiger look pa sa akin at mukhang masungit at mataray pero sige tingnan natin kung hanggang saan iyong kasungitan nito sa mga mala-barrage kong diskarte (pero sa personal lumiliit iyong boses hahaha) Ngayon ko lng napagtanto na hindi naman pala lumiit iyong boses ko sa time na iyon. Siguro nagpapa-cute lang ako nun (hahaha).

**ADS HERE: PAANO KUMITA NG EXTRA SA INTERNET: CLICK ME TO FIND OUT**

Okay, sa wakas natapos din ang buong maghapon. We are relieved from our duty as MOG. Eto na talaga ang pinakagusto kong kwento…After naming kumain ng hapunan, nag-early mess na kami para tuloy-tuloy na ang ligaya. Dahil likas na ang palaging nag-do-double time dahil na rin siguro sa nangangati na iyong kamay kong mahawakan ang makamandag kong cellphone nag-dash ‘n dash na ako pabalik sa Barrio area. Doon kasi ang barracks namin noon. Sa sobrang excited ko parang matatalo ko na sa 100m sprint si Usain Bolt (hahaha).

Pag-ibig nga naman oh…

Pagdating ko sa barracks, mabilis pa sa alas kwarto ang bihis ko at dahil privilege is in effect ibig sabihin pwedeng gumamit ng cellphone at dahil hindi na ako posted as guard ayun, diretso na agad sa cellphone rack at kinuha ko na ang makamandag kong cellphone.

Ooppss, muntik kong makalimutan baka nahulog yung pinagsulatan ko nung number. Naloko na. Problema ‘to. Buwis-buhay pa naman iyong pagkuha ko nun.. Muntik maubos boses ko dun ahh.. So pagbalik ko sa kwarto tiningnan ko na.

Eto na talaga.

Dahil nga kanina doon sa MVL hindi ko na binilang kung 11 digits ba talaga iyong naisulat. Hindi ko kasi naiapply iyong stability under pressure. Masyado akong pressurized (hahaha). So binilang ko..Napa. WOW naman si Cadet..

Kumpleto. Eksakto. Walang labis walang kulang. Isa na lang ang dapat kung maconfirm. Kung number ba niya talaga ito. Baka naman ibang number or hinuhugutan lang ako nun or worst pa baka mobile number ng Mental Hospital (hahaha).. Naloko na.. Maiisahan ‘ata si audacious knight ahh…

Para malaman at masagot na itong mga agam-agam ko. I-dial ko na sana…

Oooppppsss

Ibang network.. Naku… Problema talaga ito.. Masusubukan na naman yung mga natutunan ko… Sabi nga “In times of peace prepare for War”… Applicable talaga lahat ng turo ng mga Instructor namin (hahaha)..

Tamang-tama may nabili akong sim na same network sa kanya..Iba na talaga ang laging handa… Problem solved. Dahil single sim lng yung mga cellphone na pinapagamit nun kadete pa kami..Na-apply ko na naman ang aking mga natutunan sa tactics.. Assembly and Disassemly. Ino-orasan kami while performing the disassembly and assembly of rifles, crew served weapons and pistol. So sa pagkakataong ito, hindi rifle o pistol ung i-disassemble or aassemble ko kundi, cellphone. Baklas na naman ng cellphone. Insert new sim card…

Aaaayyyyooooossss!!!! Ang bangis ko talaga.. Simbilis ng kidlat yung mga galaw ko!!!

Pero alam naman natin na sa mundo ng pag ibig puno ng mga challenges na hindi natin alam kung saan nanggagaling at bigla na lng sumusulpot. Eto na nga may sumulpot na naman..

Walang load na pantawag.

Bagong sim card eh.

Panu ko ma-deny or confirm ngayon ito.. Masusubukan na naman at diskarteng malupit ni Cadet.

Aha!… Naaalala ko na nagloload iyong parents ng mistah ko (hahaha). Sa madaling sabi, pumunta ako sa room niya, pero evening mess na iyon baka wala siya, pero to my surprise… WOOOW!!!! Andun iyong Mistah ko. Naka sit ups ng nakatagilid at nakapikit. Tulog pala si Cadet. Ang akala ko optional iyong mess (hahaha) pero hindi ko na sabihin kung sino baka mareport pa siya ni TAC-O (hahaha).

Ginising ko Mistah ko, “Bok tama na ang pagsisit ups mo. Naka 1000 reps ka na yata. Paload naman ako sa parents mo bayaran ko na lang.” Sama pa ng gising niya, may balak pa yatang mag 5000 reps sa sit ups pero magmi-Mistah nga, no choice siya..

Ayun dumating na nga iyong load. Excited ako. Alam mo iyong pinaghalong emotions and feelings. The moment of truth na naman..

Tatawagan ko na…kring.. kring…kring..kring.

Naku walang sumagot. Naloko na.. Dial ulit si Cadet…

kring kring kring..

Baka naka silent lang..

Sige pagbigyan natin… Dial na naman ulit..

kring kring kring…

Naisahan yata ako ahh..

Pero nag-riring naman.. So nag-text na ako..baka ma-who you ako neto… “ Hi Ma’am, ako pala iyong kumuha nung number nyo kanina” …ang tapang ko na.. wala na sa harapan eh..

wait lang ako ng mga ilang minutes baka natraffic lang sa Session Road iyong message ko..

Wala pa rin. No sign of life.. Haay.. 🙁

Dial na naman ulit si cadet…mga naka -10 times na ako sa pagda-dial. Wala pa rin..

No sign of Life….

Pero I will never give up..

I still have that intuition that she is just there on the other side of the road… All I have to do is to have a little amount of patience.

Love waits, sabi nga nila.. Mahaba pa naman ang gabi at kahit mgdamag pa.

Takelife ko na lng iyong makamandag kong cellphone (hahaha).

I waited… And waited… And waited…

Love Of A Lifetime: Chapter 1

PMG Notes: This story was contributed by a former Cadet (now an Army Officer), whose love for his girlfriend is unsurmountable, he has to immortalize their story LOL. Itago na lang daw natin siya sa pangalang Cadet J, isa raw siyang simple at mapagmahal na nilalang. Ehem. Actually guys, hindi lang siya basta-bastang Cadet. He graduated top in his class, biruin niyo, hindi lang talaga brawn and brains ang mga Cadets natin, meron din silang big love na nakatago sa dibdib nila (hindi lang halata hehe!). In fairness nakakakilig ang kwento niya. This story is from a Cadet’s POV, first in PMG. Thanks, Cadet J, for trusting PMG!

LOVE OF A LIFETIME

CHAPTER 1: Find Out

September 17, 2010, Friday

Matapos ang limang araw na bagbagan sa acads (academic bombardment), heto, busy na naman ang Cadet Corps sa paglilinis ng kwarto, pagsa-shine ng lahat ng sapatos pati lahat ng metal parts na gagamitin sa parada at pagpe-prepare sa buong barracks para naman every is happy sa buong weekend dahil may privilege kami…

September 18, 2010, Saturday

So heto na nga, Sabado na. Barracks and Ranks Inspection na naman, pagkatapos, Testimonial Parade and review para sa bisita. Normal routine na sa mga Kadete ang Parade and Review every Saturday.

So after ng Parade, vaultfiles nag 60- 60 (ngmamadali) ang lahat para magbihis ng Dress White para sa noon mess. Muntik ko ng makalimutan MOG (Messenger Of the Guard) pala ako. Ito yung mga duty guards na nag i-entertain ng mga bisita sa MAGILAS Visitors Lounge, Lopez Hall at PMA Museum at nag-eexplain sa kanila kung may mga tanong sila about sa Academy or may hinahanap silang kadete. So excuse ako sa noon mess at dumiretso na ako sa MAGILAS Visitors Lounge. Kasama ng ibang MOG, doon lang kami patayu-tayo, palakad-lakad. Tapos lilipat na naman sa Lopez Hall.

**ADS HERE: PAANO KUMITA NG EXTRA SA INTERNET: CLICK ME TO FIND OUT**

 

After noon, may mga bisita nang pumasok at ngtatanong, so ini-entertain naman naming nang maayos. Kamay, Ngiti, Bati ‘ika nga.

Hanggang sa bandang hapon na, mga bandang 1500H (3pm), may dalawang babaeng pumasok sa Lounge. Mga nasa 18 to 19 years old silang dalawa. Noong una dahil pa hard-to-get effect iyong mga moves ko, hindi ko lang pinansin kasi normal na lang naman na may mga bisitang pumapasok. Dahil likas na sa aming mga Kadete ang pagiging “friendly” kinausap sila ng aking mga kasamahang MOG. Syempre dahil shy type din ako, doon lang ako sa tabi. Strikto ang dating, tiger look ang mukha, Mala-Hercules ang Katawan (hahaha).

…Then all of a sudden, napatingin ako doon sa dalawang babae na kakapasok lang sa Lounge. Napansin ko iyong isang babae, parang si Glaiza De Castro ang dating! Artistahin! Sabi ko sa sarili ko, “WOW” mukhang nakita ko na ang babaeng magiging “Love of a Lifetime” ko. Pero dahil pa-hard-to-get nga ako, naghehesitate akong makipag-usap at lumapit sa kanila. Pero dahil audacious Knight naman ako, sige “so what, so what” na lang. Pakapalan na lang ‘to ng mukha. Isa lang pumasok sa isip ko, makuha ang number niya at baka maunahan pa ako ng mga kasama ko (hahaha). Although hindi naman ito ang first time na mag-find out ako ng number kasi lagi akong complying sa Upperclass noon na kuhanin, i-find out iyong number ng mga babaeng sa tingin nila love of the lifetime din nila (hahaha).

So ito na nga…the moment of truth…dahan-dahan ko munang hinugot iyong papel at ballpen ko… dahil may planning process na itinuturo sa Academy tinitingnan kong mabuti iyong bawat anggulo baka naman ma-epic fail ako… Every action must be carefully and strategically planned.

Una, Sinubukan ko munang isulat yung ballpen baka naman mapahiya ako at manghiram pa ako ng ballpen sa kanya.

Pangalawa, tiningnan ko muna kung malinis ba yung papel na pagsusulatan ko, baka naman may ibang number na nakasulat doon.

Pangatlo, where will be my axis of advance…saan ko siya lalapitan banda.

Pang apat, dapat may rehearsal pero sa utak ko na lang ginawa iyon. Mahirap na, ma-burn out pa iyong plano ko.

Lastly, mga isang sakong courage, bravery at lakas ng loob lang katapat niyan…

Kabado si Cadet. Actually lahat ng pinaplano ko, hindi nasunod (hahaha). Hindi dahil sa bagal kong mag-react muntik ko nang hindi maabutan. Palabas na sila.

Lumapit si Cadet “Hi maam (vaultfiles na approach)” medyo kabado ako dahil parang mas tiger look pa sa akin kung makatingin. Mukhang strikta. Mukhang Isnabera pero sabi ko nga “so what, so what” na lang iyan. “Pwede makuha ang iyong Mobile number Ma’am”…WOW! Kanina pa ako nagpapaplano ng mga sasabihin ko iyon lang pala iyong masasabi ko…No Go talaga…

“Sinong nagpapakuha?”-tanong niya. Dahil na subdue ako ng kalaban, nabawasan ng kalahating sako iyong courage at bravery ko..

“Yung kasama ko po, Ma’am.” (sabay turo sa kasama ko hahaha)

“Bakit hindi siya ang kumuha?” Naloko na. Mapapalaban ‘ata ung reasoning skills ko ah.

“Ay hindi pala Maam, ako pala talaga ang gustong kumuha.” Buti na lang naisip kong audacious knight ako. Pero mas lalo akong kinabahan baka naman hindi ibigay. Mission Failed ito..

Siguro dahil nakita naman niyang medyo kinakabahan ako at parang lumiliit na iyong boses ko..Naawa naman.. Binigay rin…ayos… Mission Accomplished si Cadet… 🙂
