Lyrics:
Isang taon palang ako,
nasundan na ni Toto.
Grade 2 walong taon palang,
apat na bata ang inaalagaan.
Grade 6 labing dalawa na ako,
kasing dami na ng pamilya ko.
Sabi mo pasensya na,
walang pera kaya magdrop out ka.

Ina ko sabi mo kami'y mahal nyo,
aray ko bat di kayo nagplano.
Sana di gutom at nag aaral pa,
alaga't malusog ang buong pamilya.

La Salle Graduate Will Be First Filipino To Fly Into Space

From Rappler.com


MANILA, Philippines – From more than 28,000 aspiring astronauts in the Philippines, down to 400, then 50, and finally down to the top 3, one man has emerged victorious: 22-year-old Chino Roque, the first Filipino to go to space.

“Right now I’m very happy that a lot of people have been showing me their love and support. I feel so blessed and grateful to all of them,” says Chino, who spoke to Rappler through Skype just a few hours after his announcement as winner.

The 22-year-old psychology graduate from De La Salle Manila will be one of 22 individuals who'll travel to space in 2014. But his journey wasn't exactly smooth sailing.

Twist of fate

In the beginning, the fitness coach and psychology graduate wasn’t even supposed to go to space camp. On the final day of challenges in August, two men were left standing: Evan Rey Datuin from DasmariƱas, Cavite and Mario Mendoza Jr. from Taytay, Rizal. Chino placed fifth. A third winner, Ramil Santos, would later join the two through the wildcard challenge.

But when Mendoza, an Air Force lieutenant, volunteered to withdraw from the competition to serve his military duties as a pilot-in-training in the Philippine Air Force, his slot was left open. And after a series of interviews, Chino found himself back in the game.

While he’s elated at the prospect of going to space in 2014, “I’m also sad for my friends Evan (Rey Datuin) and Ramil (Santos) because I feel what they’re going through right now. I know that in any competition, there will be a bit of bad feelings for those who lost. I respect them and the efforts they did to get here a lot.”
