UPDATED: Oh, Where's the J U S T C E?

"Can you fill this up for me? Kasi I'm illiterate."

I just posted this blog because I want to share this to my avid readers about the big, big problem regarding the security of the newly-renovated Plaza Heneral Santos.

Ito ang 38M-Plaza Heneral Santos, the newest place to hang-out with friends and families in town. It was opened last September 5, 2009, together with the closing ceremony of Tuna Festival. Naging kontrobersyal din ito because of over pricing. And the newest controversy is the signage of the park. As time goes by, nawawala nang nawawala one by one ang mga letra ng Plaza Heneral Santos.

Everytime I visited the park, nawawala paisa-isa ang mga letra, tulad nung nakaraang araw na "PLAZA HE-ERAL SANTOS", naging headline pa 'yun ng balita, then due to sloppiness of our securities in the park, pinagmumultahan sila para lang maipalit sa nawawalang letra. After how many days, nawawala na naman ang "PLAZA HENERAL SAN-OS", nawawala si letter T, at nang bumalik kami noong January 4, 2010, ito na ang bumungad sa amin.


"They can't spell it right, what's wrong with them?"

I told my colleagues na "ansarap naman itong picturan, i-blog at makapagcomment man lang about the signage". This is not the first time na nawawala ang mga letra sa signage but for the 3rd time. I also noticed that the light bulbs that formed a ship at the front of Jose Rizal Statue, unti-unting nababasag, nako, ewan ko ba.

Sana the City Government will take some further actions regarding the missing of letters of this signage. Hindi biro ang gumastos ng malaking halaga para lang mapaganda ang ating pasyalan at sisirain lamang ito ng mga walang kwentang tao sa lipunan. I mean, this park is for our own good, lahat naman tayo nakikinabang kasi pera natin ito, pera na nagmumula sa katas ng VAT, Taxes, etc. Sana naman alagan natin ang ating pasyalan para naman mapakinabangan pa ito ng susunod nating henerasyon.


Here are some PROBLEMS and CONSEQUENCES that the Park is facing nowadays:


  • The ornaments in the park are obviously "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY". Kung bawal hawakan, eh 'di BAWAL. 'Yan kasi ang problema nating mga PINOY, KUNG BAWAL, MASARAP. Kung hinawakan mo ito at nasira, eh 'di sasagutin mo! Kelangan mong palitan 'yung nasira mo, the way it was.
  • "KEEP OFF THE GRASS", if you don't follow this order, someone will make "PITO" on you. Well, nakakahiya naman sa mga taong gumagala sa pasyalan. This order is just simple. Ginagawa lang nila ito para mapanatili ng Carabao Grass ang kanilang paglago. Kung "tapak-tapakan" (bisaya term for stepping it) natin ito, mamamatay ang Carabao Grass at sayang naman ang ginastos ng LGU.
  • "THROW YOUR GARBAGE IN THE TRASH BIN", those trash bins are located anywhere in the park. Color BLACK ito. Just throw your waste in respective trash bins para kakaunti lang ang trabaho ng taga-bantay ng pasyalan, *at para alagaan din natin ang ating Inang Kalikasan*. If you don't follow this orders, it's either MULTA or SEE-YOU-IN-JAIL.
  • The most important thing is "THOU SHALL NOT STEAL", eh ito na nga ang nangyari sa signage ng Plaza Heneral Santos. Hindi lang ang signage ang pinagbawal, kundi lahat ng ari-ari-an na nakikita mo sa pasyalan ay bawal kunin, don't steal it. If someone will caught you, then magse-celebrate ka ng kaarawan mo sa kulungan or maghihirap ka sa piyansang nakalaan.


    Through this blog post, I hope na natulungan ko ang bayang minahal ko, ang pasyalan ng mga Generals, I'm just concern on what's happening to our park, pinaghirapan natin ito, pinag-gastusan, at sana naman, mahalin at ipagmalaki natin ito. :D


    UPDATE! UPDATE!


  • Kanina, January 6, 2010, my friends and I decided to stroll around the park, again. Nagulat nalang kami kasi kagagaling lang din namin sa park just two days ago, then on my mind, inisip ko na "SAAN ANG HUSTISYA NITO?" Spot the Difference:


    "I took this one last January 4, 2010, 5:16 PM"



    "A recent photo of the signage of Plaza Heneral Santos, kinunan kanina, January 6, 2010, 1:36 PM"


    "Dito nakalagay sa spot na ito ang word "PLAZA", ngayon, nawala nalang ito na parang bula"


    "Dito ako mas lalong nagulat, missing ang logo ng GenSan. Saan kaya nagtatago ang logong iyon?"


    "HENER, nasaan si AL?"


    "SAN? Sino si SAN? SANTOS 'yan dapat, 'diba?"

    I don't know what happened to the signage. Mainit talaga sa mga mata ng mga magnanakaw ang signange na iyon dahil pwede nilang ibenta ito sa "bote bakal" sa malaking halaga.


    UPDATE! UPDATE! January 8, 2010

    I interviewed two security personnels in the park, with the help of my BSIT Classmates of course. I know this is like, a pretty tough job for me, but I must ask and interrogate them regarding the missing letters. So I used my "KAPAL MUKHA" powers and practicing "what should I ask to them" speeches thingy.

    Nakalimutan kong mag-ask about their names, dahil siguro sa kinakabahan ako. I saw their name patches. Sina Baunillo and Abdullah, one of the security personnels sa park and I asked them:

    NOTE: During the interview, we were using BISAYA language.. but I translated it into TAGLISH for you to understand it. :)

    "What happened to the signage there?"

  • -> It's actually in the Office (CSU, City Hall). Tinanggal namin isa-isa noon kasi maluluwang na ang mga letters and madali na ito manakaw. Pero mayroon namang nagbabantay jan to secure the signage.

    "Totoo po 'yung binalita sa TV and radio about sa nawalang letra nung una?"
  • -> Hindi totoo. Hindi totoo na mayroong nagnakaw at nawala ang isang letter ng signage. Isang radio station ang nagbalita na mayroong nagnakaw, hanggang sa kumalat nalang ang maling balita.

    "Nasa pangangalaga po ba ng CSU ang mga signage steels ngayon? Even the Logo? Kasi nung dumaan ako rito kahapon (Jan 7) nawala na po ang letters, at baka ma-misinterpret na ninakaw ulit ito."
  • -> Yes. Baka gusto niyong makita na nandun nga, malapit lang sa Canteen ng City Hall ang office ng CSU. Kinuha na namin 'yun kahapon kasi papalitan namin 'yun. Maybe next week i-install na dun ang bagong signage.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At least naman hindi ninakaw ang mga letra ng signage, pero gusto ko ring marinig ang inyong reaksyon or kommento regarding this issue. :)

    kababago pa ng plaza tapos ganyan na!

    hay ano na lang ang gagawin sa mga balasubas na yan.

    may guard na ,nalusutan pa...

    bariles said...

    Simple solution is to station a guard right infront of the signage. Anyway, it's between the two main front entrances to the park.

    Ibang klase na talaga mga batang tun-og ngayon.

    Nice post, rabs!
