Woman, You Ain't Cheap...




"Can I see your thighs? Can I see your legs? Can I see your neck? Pag-ito sinabi ng boyfriend mo sayo, ito ang gagawin mo. Kunin mo ang pitaka mo at kumuha ka ng 80 pesos. Papuntahin mo siya sa Mang Inasal. Maraming thighs, breast, legs, at necks dun! unlimited rice pa! Oh come on, girls, hindi kayo cheap! at kayo naman boys, hindi cheap ang mga babae."

This was the statement of Pastor **** (I don't really know who he is, ever since I was 16, I don't take into account the names of the pastors of the churches of the places that I have live with. You see, I am a nomad. And it is first time that I am staying in one particular place for almost four years already. Perhaps, college is different.) His sermon on Sunday was the last installment of the four-part series called 'The Love Difference'. What's that? Don't ask me. I don't know either.

So there he went talking about love, lust, and sex. Nah, I can no longer remember all the things that he said. He is so loquacious, and his character was of a modern preacher. Very trendy. It was really a nice discussion though. He cited two important points:

1) Fall inlove by means of character not by emotion because your emotion will betray you. Your heart is the greatest deceiver.

2) Marriage is not a chance, it is a choice. You will only choose one person out of the millions out there. That is already a big deal. Choose the person who will suit your temperament. The one who is a good provider. The one who can be your companion at difficult times, the one who will share with you the happiness, and at the same time, the sorrows of being parents to your little monsters who will later on become hard-headed adults. Parenthood is a tough job. Choose someone who can be your best friend.

Pakakasalan ka tapos hindi ka rin naman pala kayang pakainin tatlong beses isang araw, saan ang pag-ibig dun? --> I must absorbed this one...

  4. I wonder what he meant by "Fall in love by means of character not by emotion because your emotion will betray you. Your heart is the greatest deceiver." =)

    As for the second point, parang "love is not enough" lang. Haha.. or is it me?

  7. hahaha! agree agree agree. ang hirap maging parents. imagine your parents and how much wounds they have caused you. Sabi nga nila all parents leave wounds to their kids daw. While ung iba, malalalim na mga sugat, ung iba scratches lang. pero either way, may wounds pa rin. kids are so fragile. kasama na dyan ang future kids mo. You need to be matured enough to know how to take care of them so you wont cause them deep wounds.

  8. @Mai YangHello Mayang, hindi ka pa na-inlove? kahit minsan sa tanang buhay mo? Bakit naman. The feeling is indescribable you know, lalo na pag mahal ka din ng taong mahal mo.

    Salamat naman at na-enlighten ka ng entry ko. Balik balikan mo blog ko. Hehe.

  10. @Ka-SwakUy, pareng Ka-swak, salamat naman at suportado mo ako sa entry na ito. Hehe.

    Dapat talaga, sa panahon ngayon, we opt to consider young financial resources natin bago magpakasal. Hindi maid ang mga babae, di sila dapat ginugutom. Minamahal sila.

  11. @aizel camilleYun ba? Hehe, I'll try to answer your question with my own understanding sa preach ni pastor.

    I think it means that when you marry someone, di lang dapat all about love. You need to consider din yung character ng taong pakakasalan mo.

    He cited examples where godly women marry men who are very much prone to vices and etchetera, hoping that magbabago yung tao kapag kasal na sila. In the end, divorce rin lang pala ang mangyayari.

    See the point? pakasalan mo yung taong mahal ka, yung magkaka-intindihan kayong dalawa, yung mabibigyan ka ng magandang buhay. Dahil kung susundin mo lang puso mo, magiging tanga ka. Magiging bulag ka dahil lang sa pag-ibig...

  13. @Ile OdarodTotoo yan, mahirap talaga maging parents. Lalong lalo na kung suwail ang mga anak. Hehe.

    But as for me and my sister, medyo obedient naman kami. Medyo mabait din kami. Hehe.
