Ito ay isang sanaysay na isinulat ko ngayon lang; tungkol sa aking karanasan noong bata pa ako. Ito ay isang personal na artikulo.
Nakita ko ang librong I WONDER WHY sa isang mall at isang matamis na kabanata ng aking buhay ang aking naalala, mahigit isang dekada na ang nakakaraan.
Summer break 'yon at mag-ge-Grade 6 na ako nang nagkaroon ako ng munting trabaho: sa isang encyclopedia stall. Napadaan lang ako noon sa stall at nagbasa-basa ako ng mga Grolier books; tinanong ako ng ilang mga trivia questions at nasagot ko nang tama ang mga ito. Pagkatapos noon, kinausap ng lalaking may-ari ang mama ko kung pwede raw ba akong maging ahente nila. Swerteng pumayag din ang papa ko.
Araw-araw akong bumiyahe mula sa bayan namin, papuntang Koronadal City, upang maging batang ahente. Ang naging trabaho ko ay ang lumapit sa mga mall-goer at umalok sa kanilang bumili ng Grolier Encyclopedia. Meron akong mga prepared lines at ang goal ko ay maka-fill-up sila ng mga order forms namin.
Masyadong mahal ang mga encylopedia noon. Siguro mga nasa 24,000+ pesos. Kapag atrasado sila sa presyo ng mga encyclopedia, second offer ko ang isang set ng I WONDER WHY books. Iba't-ibang tao ang aking nilalapitan, kadalasan, mga nanay. Kapag napapayag ko sila; siyempre, bibili sila ng encyclopedia sets. Pwede rin silang puntahan ng demo team tungkol sa mga produkto namin, kung gusto nila.
Kuha habang sumasayaw noong nasa Grade 5 pa ako.
Araw-araw akong nagbi-biyahe at pumapasok sa opening hours ng mall. Nagdadala ako ng sarili kong baunan para sa pananghalian. Kasama ko ang ibang mga bantay rin ng stalls sa karenderya. Sumasakay ako ng bus, wala pang 7:30 AM. Umuuwi ako nang mga 4 or 4:30 PM; mag-isa.
Bagama't hindi ganun kalaki ang isinahod sa akin, ang importante para sa akin, ay ang karanasan kong iyon tungkol sa pagkayod at sa pagkakaroon ng work ethic. Hindi ako pinagtrabaho dahil wala kaming makain, pinayagan ako dahil isa iyong nakikitang mabuting training sa akin. At dahil doon, nagpapasalamat ako sa mga magulang ko sa pagkakataong iyon.
Marami nang nagbago; wala nang mga Grolier Encyclopedia akong nakikita sa mga puwesto sa mall. Subalit, nakatutuwa pa ring malaman na meron pang I WONDER WHY na libro gaya nito. High-tech na rin ngayon kasi meron na silang electronic pen na kasama ng libro. Balang araw, kapag nagkaroon din ako ng sarili kong mga anak; ibibili ko sila ng I WONDER WHY - o pwede ko rin silang ipag-ahente ng mga encylopedia sa mall.

Hello, everyone.

On this installment of the Word of Thanks, I would like to  thank everyone, especially my loyal readyers, for the continued support of my projects.

SOON? Not anymore. The PoliTikalon Blog TV has already gone online.
Thanks for our colleagues in the US and SIngapore for making me one of its first contributors for the newly-launched news AI website, Noypidaily.com. Visit some of my articles, here.


The largest and the most ambitious project we've ever done so far is the The PoliTikalon Blog YouTube channel.

As of this writing, we've managed to have about 900,000+ minutes of view time. It has also been shared for almost 3,500x. Since its start early this year, we managed to acquire more than 500 new subscribers. Salamat po sa inyo!

Also, I would like to thank the Pinoy voters for making my Compilation of 36 Mock University Polls article viral. I have published it a night before the elections and after four days, the multitude of views made it one of my Top 10 most read articles ever. Salamat!


And because we have already elected our new president, President Rodrigo Duterte, let's just hope for the best as we do our best for the true change that is to come. Mabuhay po tayong lahat.
In this entry, we will try to analyze who, among the presidentiables, is the “King or Queen of the Philippine Universities”; based on how many of the university students have voted in the various university mock polls nationwide.

We have analyzed more than 30 separate polls, and more than a hundred thousand votes to come up with the infographics.

A short disclaimer first:

1. If the total percentages don’t add up to 100%; most of the time, those are the unaccounted percentages of those who: a) abstained, or; b) those percentages which belonged to the previous candidates who were either disqualified or have been withdrawn from the presidential race.

2. The surveys here are those that we have researched from verified URLs only.

3. If the conducted poll covers two months, we would consider it to have been conducted on the latter month.


4. All of these surveys are conducted from November last year up to the last week of April.


All of the photos here can also be viewed via Facebook by clicking here.
So, here is the average percentages of those polls:



And here are the infographics of all those universities and colleges with the corresponding sources.


































It can be noted that nearly 20% of the Philippine population is composed of young people with ages 15-24. Garnering a large number in the so-called “youth vote”, would obviously be an advantage for any candidate for the coming elections.

The wrap on millenials is they just are not politically-motivated. They do not show up or that they care more about their smartphones than they do on who’ll be the next president.
But these mock polls show the opposite.  

What is your take on this? Who’s the leading presidentiable at your school? Please comment your thoughts below.
