Turn lemons into lemonades.

“Do not be discouraged because there are people who actually look beyond the mistakes and can find something beautiful.”

-Aldrian Crisanto

Classic sample of taking back the steering while and turn the situation around.

Kudos to Adrian! When I first read that open letter, it was heart felt and his points made sense and I was really hoping Kim would see that.

Background of the Issue (para lang akong nagsusulat ng incident report ah):

Few weeks back nung nagsara ang ABS-CBN (largest TV network in PH) due to expired franchise and all other political issues on the side, TV artists turned to social media and expressed their opinions.

Kim Chiu, in the height of her emotions, published a video statement where she got lots of criticism from netizens and her statement turned into viral song with lots of versions in the past weeks.

Not everyone has 30 minutes to spare for their story so I am sharing my own thoughts after seeing Kim’s ‘official statement’ very early in the morning.

Takeaways from Kim:

  • Kapag may problema sa buhay, di natin tinatambayan. Dun tayo sa option na move forward.
  • Yung mga problema, nagpapatatag yan ng character natin.
  • We will not move on if we don’t learn our lesson

Keypoints from Adrian:

  • empathy – understanding people’s circumstances and putting yourself in the place of others
  • look the good in bad
  • encouragement instead of bashing in these times
  • sharing and using your talents to share Jesus

Open Letter


Kay gulo-gulo ng puso at isipan ko
Daming sinasabi at nangyayari sa paligid ko
Yambay sa bahay, nagkalat ang pasaway
Just like your kilay, mukang hindi nagcomply
Bat ayaw nating maging positive
Napakarami na ring negative
Haters telling me how to live
I just choose to forgive

Sa classroom may batas
Bawal lumabas, oh, bawal lumabas
Pero pag sinabing, pag
(Pero pag sinabing, pag)
Nag comply ka
Na bawal lumabas
Pero may sina- may ginawa ka
Sa pinagbabawal nila

Inayos mo
Yung Law ng Classroom niyo
At sinubmit mo ulit
Ay, pwede na pala ikaw lumabas

Ang buhay ay Parang Isang malaking silid-aralan
Ibat ibang tao, pangarap at bisyo, yan ang totoo
Sa bawat hakbang, may leksyon na nakaabang
We will not move on if we don’t learn our lesson
Okay lang magkamali
Sa buhay hindi laging madali
Make it right that’s all we need
tao lang, natututo naman.

Also, found this video compilation of different versions of #BawalLumabas. Yung unang version and pinakabet ko so far.
