I watched this documentary on ANC, Mukha:Linggit, earlier today. It showed the life of a 12-year old small kid, Linggit Fernandez, who is working in the fish market. He’s got a big load in his life at such a young age.
I realized how lucky I am. I also realized how much I can help. This kid earns 50 pesos for a 5-hour workday. Honestly, what could he get from that money? While we just spend that money on snacks, he works hard for hours for it to give food for his family.
Imagine of you stopped drinking milk tea for a month and gave all the money you save to kids like him. Imagine if you stopped shopping, or instead of going on a trip abroad, give thousands of your savings to help them. Or instead of spending your time partying, helping them in their studies.
I just thought, we could spend 1000 pesos in a night, but for them it’s a month’s worth of food.
So lists of the “Top 10 Books/Movies/Quotes/Dramas, etc That Has Stayed with You” is becoming very popular. I can’t answer it though. Because really, nothing stays with me.
I’ve watch a lot of anime, dramas and movies. I’ve read a few books. But when you ask me to tell you the story, I would n’t remember it. I just know that I’ve seen it when I re-watch/re-read it. Most of the time, I just remember the feeling while watching it. Some times, I remember nothing.
But even so, I like watching and reading because I enjoy it. And I keep lists of all the things I watch for dramas. Anyway, soon enough I’m gonna try to make my own Top 10 list. Try.
One of the worst feelings ever for me is not being able to do anything, and just not doing anything productive. I just always feel that I have so little time for things. So when I have time, I need to maximize it. I feel very very bad when a few hours or half a day has passed and I haven’t done anything “worth doing”.
