Cordillera-  Can you remember how and where  you celebrated your last birthday?

Celebrating a birthday is a very special occasion and  anticipated by most children, adults and old folks alike. This is the day you receive lots of love, greetings and even gifts. A day when you feel like you are treated extra special because you  receive special favors or get away with some minor offences. 

While recalling those memories of the countless birthdays you've celebrated, it's satisfying to know that you have given time for yourself to be all about you, to receive all those love, care and affection. 

But have you ever considered celebrating your birthday the other way around?

Patrolwoman Ardayle Callueng, a police officer in Baguio Naguilan  Police Station (PS1) just did the opposite when she celebrated her birthday in a Daycare center in Brgy. Fairview Baguio City as posted in the PNP Cordillera FB Page.

Being grateful for another year full of blessings, she opted to give love, joy and happiness to the children. 

The gracious Patrolwoman Callueng gave the children some gifts like disinfectant alcohol, facemasks and goodie bags not to mention the sumptuous food she prepared for them. 

Instead of receiving gifts and special favors, Callueng shared her blessings and  joy to the children who received them with so much happiness.

You know you have already reached far in life when celebrating your birthday is no longer just about the yummy food and drinks with family and friends or the world revolving around you but the company and love that your family and friends give, the gratitude you have for all the blessings received in the past, the appreciation you have for the life you have lived and the hope and gratefulness you have for the next chapter of your life and whatever the future holds for you.

The next time you celebrate your special day,  what's your plan? You might also consider sharing your blessings and joy to those in need or to charity.

You can always share your thoughts with us and we will all celebrate with you.

Cheers to celebrating more birthdays in the future!

Photo Courtesy || thefilam.net

Cordillera - Short film written by Joyce Lao from the Ibaloi tribe has won numerous awards at the New York International Film Awards and at the Rango and Golden Beach Film Festival.

The short film Eva's Gabriel, written and produced by Joyce Laoagan and film-director Buali Sha was named Best Acting Ensemble at the New York International Film Festival. 

The film also won Best Male Director, Best Drama Short and Best Short Film at the Rango and Golden Film Festival. 

Lao wrote the film during the pandemic, a short story about Eva (played by Lao) who was put under house arrest by the government. While waiting for the day of her release, she developed a relationship with a fellow prisoner next door name Gabriel (played by Buali Shah). Their relationship grows until the day of their release. When Eva was out of her room to check for Buali, she was shocked to find out that no one is there.

Joyce’s legal name is Joyce Laoagan. She is Indigenous-Filipino American, an Igorota from the Ibaloi tribe born and raised in Baguio City and Benguet, Philippines. Early in her career in New York City, she would audition using her legal name and never got far despite her experience as a performer. She used the American-sounding Logan as her last name upon the suggestion of a music producer. She finally decided to adopt the stage name Lao which is easy to remember and is a shorter version of her legal name.- thefilam.net
