Sulutan Sa San Antonio! A Bad Habit!

Sa tuwing ako’y napapabisita sa Anawangin. Madalas ko pong marinig sa mga bangkero  sa Pundakit and salitang “sulot”. They have experienced numerous times of preparing overnight for their upcoming guests but end up being “Nasulot”. Kung baga, nag hintay sa Clifford Bustillo - cliffordbustillo.wordpress.comwala. They end up tired preparing for their tour to Anawangin Cove for nothing. The boat, life vest, tents and other inclusions are ready but their beard have grown long waiting for once again, nothing. Nakakalungkot na close na ang deal pero “nasulot” ng iba sa San Antonio.

Ang “Sulot” po ay salitang kanto na ang pinakasimpleng ibig sabihin na akma sa usaping tio ay “Pang-aagaw” or dili kaya’y “Pag-nanakaw”. On many occasions I have heard this bad habit which is apparently originating from Pundakit spreading over San Antonio. Of which I would like to address today.

I think we have to address 1st the guests. May we remind everyone to be A Man of Honor! Palabra de honor kung baga. When a deal is close it’s close. Remember not to be allured of their offers. Many will attempt to “Sulot” but this could be prevented if guests are firm with their agreement. We’re not talking about rates here of which we shall discuss a bit later. We’re talking about being true and committed. If these two principles are easily broken. I’m sorry to say this but you will never be true and committed neither to yourself nor to your friends, wife or family. You cannot teach something to your kids or anyone if you’re not practicing it. With regard to rates, these people have their own families to feed to the extent of offering very low rates breaking the laws or standard rates agreed and promulgated across Pundakit but whether you like or not, Wala po kayong isang salita. Period. Bagay na nakakalungkot matutunan ng mga kabataan o ng mismong magiging anak o mga anak mo. Tsktsktsktsktsktsk!

The second concern is the person/s offering or making the “Sulot”. My friend, I may not be able to fully understand your situation why you’re doing this and I don’t really care if sad faceyou’re offering within or less than the standard rates. Pero maling mali ang ginagawa mo kasama. Puro tayo reklamo sa gobyerno at iba pang mga bagay pero ang simpleng pagrespeto sa napagkasunduan ay di natin magawa! Pagkatapos ay ano? Naghahangad ng pagasenso? Pero paano kung ang simpleng bagay na ito ay di natin magawang masunod. Respeto kaibigan. Nagagalit tayo kapag di tayo irinirespeto ng iba. Hindi bat hindi karin naman marunong rumespeto? We’re not talking about rates here again or respecting others but in essence self respect. Kung marunong kang irespeto and sarili mo malamang sa malamang marunong kang rumespeto sa iba. Kaibigan, you can never attain true success and happiness in life if you won’t practice self respect. 

Sa bandang huli mga kasama di talaga rates o ang nakuhang anawangin tour package ang problema kundi mga sarili natin. Ang bulok na systemang ito na patuloy na inaalok at tinatangkilik din ng iba ay nakakasuka at kasulasulasok. Maging responsable po tayong mamamayan.Maawa po kayo sa sarili nyo at sa ibang tao. Huwag po nating tangkilikin ang bagay na walang tunay ng pag asenso sa sarili magin sa bansa. At huwag hayaang idahilan na kesyo ginagawa ng ilan. Papaano po tayong magiging totoo sa ating mga sarili, asawa, anak, mga kaibigan at iba pa kung tinalo pa natin ang brand ng Tupperware. PLASTIC! Kung naghahangad po tayo na respetuhin mangyaring irespeto natin ang iba. At malamang sa malamang tunay na asenyo at mahimbing na tulog ang kapalit nito kaibigan.
