Yesterday I attended seminar given by the Filipino Press Club UAE
" Ang Trip ko, Dokumentado!" Travel Documentary Workshop at Marco Polo Hotel, Dubai...
and part of the workshop is to write at least 200 words in 5's like
on the spot writing contest when i was in high school.

The time starts and i don't have paper to write on...and 2 minutes is gone,
so, i started to write on the back of WS Handouts when sister elle gave me 2 sheets
(dami naman...ok yan para marami kang maisulat) of paper teared on her notebook..
it is last 2 minutes for the submission.

I have in mind about the Philippines here in i wrote SATWA (Filipino Colony in Dubai)
and unconsiously...(now i know!)...again, unconsiously...what i did is a MIND MAPPING of my story,
and i have to write it on a standard writing (horizontal) so, i wrote it horizontally (because in
mind mapping you have to draw it like a chart..see image above)..than suddenly Bro.Jay (VP of FPC) shouted...time is up!

wheew! i just finish it in 60 seconds...not the story! only the TOPICS!

And before the workshop ends...FPC chose my Travel Story as one of the six best writing.

And this is what i wrote....a Mind Map of my Story...

SATWA (Philippine Country in Dubai)

pinoy, pinay, bading, tibo
busy, people, restaurant, hospital,
hardware, police, thief, pasa load,
padala, turo-turo, gupitan,
sugal, 2nd hand books, 2nd hand cellphone,
sabong, tambay, ukay-ukay.

masaya at pinoy na pinoy
punta ka! tabi lang ng karama.

trip ko, dokumentado!
