Hanunóo: Learning the Basic

The Philippines aims to eliminate illiteracy in the country. As an intervention, the Alternative Learning System ( ALS) was then created.

ALS is spearheaded by the Department of Education. It is a free education program  which benefits those who cannot afford formal schooling and follows whatever is their available schedule. The program provides a viable alternative to the existing formal education instruction, encompassing both the non-formal and informal sources of knowledge and skills.

Educating Hanunóos

In partnership with the Department of Education, the Armed Forces Philippine has continued educating the Hanunóo. Hanunóo is  a Mangyan  sub-tribe living in the mountains of Oriental  Mindoro, Philippines particularly in the municipality of Mansalay.

Empowering Hanunóos 

Towards social development, the program aims to improve the quality of lives to the native sectors as it adhere to the government’s end goal of eliminating illiteracy and eventually will result poverty reduction.




Aside from education alone, livelihood programs for Hanonoos was created where   women  manufacture baskets and weave cotton into clothing and blankets.

Achieving the Goal

The road to societal change  seems to be long, rough and maybe impassable.




However, success is made of sweat and determination. ###

A Desired Guy

It is not enough  that  a guy is only good-looking. But of course being such is another factor to be liked easily. Yes, cause we don’t fall at instant through his  good and  awesome  personality but on how hot and daring he looks. Right? And I have listed the qualifications (shall I say) for a future and compatible lover. Come on- read more!

I love it when he wears white t-shirt:  When I see a man out in the world going about his day wearing a perfect  fitting, plain white T-shirt.  I offer a quick nod of support. After all, here is a man who doesn’t need to wear anything more eye-catching up top than the simplest garment there is. This man is his own man.

Smells good:  I don’t particularly appreciate the scent of stale sweat.  And I totally like men who  smell mostly like body-wash. I thinks it’s good and sexy. I am attracted.

With Tattoo: Yes, Maybe or Not. Ultimately it depends on the guy and the tattoos. And if it is both nice to look at then yes. It’s a huge turn on. He may be a lot hotter.

Less Intelligent: Many smart guys refuse to accept that a good, solid and workable answer could come from someone “dumber” than them, so they discount idea  before trying it. And I hate them for that. I don’t need a  Einstein-brained guy. I just want  someone who can make me laugh until my ribs hurt. Humor is the keyword.


Hairy legs and thighs: I find it more attractive rather than weird. It intensifies his masculinity looks . Besides it brings another sensation.

An artist: If I see a guy playing guitar + he is  singing, there’ll be more brownie points . But I won’t fall for him right then and there.

He is the one

I  have just described the perfect guy. Now the questions are: “Will be the feeling reciprocal?” “Will he be attracted to me either?” Sound the whole search thing is not easy. HUHUH! But I know, he is just out there- undiscovered. Waiting for the perfect timing. And once he’ll read this post.  He will know right away.###

Perfection is next to insanity.
