Know each other find their own lives redefined by the sudden return of the dead Walter has been left by his wife and son for a new life in England; Rory feels herself standing on the brink of great prospects ambitions that her sister never achieved Somewhere on its long way home the body gets stolen and things get even confused than ev. A BOOK REPORT ON SOLEDAD S SISTER By Jose DalisayThe novel starts with a woman in the box identified as Aurora Cabahug arriving at the Ninoy Auino International Airport Her death certificate would simply say that she had died because of drowning in Jeddah However the real Aurora also known as Rory is actually alive and works as a singer in one of the karaoke bars in the town of Paez Walter a Paez policemen has delivered the telegram to Rory and she has known the news about her sister s death Soledad Rory s older sister has borrowed Rory s name so that she can work in Jeddah after having been blacklisted on her first job in Hongkong The story tells us that Soledad came back to Philippines pregnant after she had an affair with the son of the couple she worked for The story continues when Rory and Walter claims the body and somewhere along the way back home their car is stolen by Boy Alambre a well known carnapper When Boy Alambre finds out the casket inside the car he pushes it into a black river about six feet above the landing s edge However the thief is taken along and drowns with the corpse In the end Soledad died in the water having no identityThe story is set in Metro Manila and one of the Southern provinces in Luzon named Paez which will take 6 hours of travel to the capital As they travel to claim Soledad s body Walter and Rory passed by Laguna described as a concrete arch on the highway with a seamless stretch of rice fields fringed by coconuts The narrator has also compared Paez from other places in the Philippines using the point of view of Walter He has said that Walter thinks there were Filipinos who grew up and grew old dreaming of mountains and oceans of places like Paez on the far side of a big island but he knew in the same way that one could drive for hours and see nothing but ocean on the one side and coconuts on the other so large was the land yet so familiar The time in the story is in the early 2000 s where the first models of Nokia phones are still a trend where newly developed subdivisions named as Bagumbayani Village are constructed and where some parts of the place are still dark with the rebels hiding and somewhere in the place of Paez There s also The Flame Tree a karaoke bar with a large concrete girdled hall on a hilltop overlooking Tanglawan Beach The Flame Tree are usually visited by most of the cops the town s vice mayor and Koreans which has become their past time as they drink their beers and listen to Rory singing their favorite songs As you read the story you ll noticed that the characters are portrayed to be ordinary Filipinos living a simple life Soledad who has an introvert personality has always tried to be a good sister to Rory After the fire which caused the death of her parents and her younger brother she has always blamed herself about the accident and has promised to take good care of Rory On the other hand Rory grows up to have an opposite personality of Soledad She likes singing and has many friends and suitors Soledad is the witness of how good Rory has become These sisters may have different personalities but has given us insights how sweet and caring Filipinos are Despite being orphans they still learn to live and love with each other s helping hands Soledad decided to work abroad in order to send Rory in college and buy a house in Bagumbayani Village To help her sister Rory took good care of Nathan son of Soledad However she has not told Soledad yet that she stopped schooling and is already working as a singer in The Flame TreeSince Rory lives in Bagumbayani Village we think that people who live in a village are the average and rich status The Bagumbayani Village first opened as Candiville named after the wife of the mayor of Paez Candida Then the village has become a place for the mayor and his family the mayor s relatives businessmen and those rich people in Paez Politicians are usually rich and in order to maintain their status they have the tendency to control the place they re governing at The Candiville Village was then changed by the mayor s new wife to dispose the predecessor s legacy and expose her historical awareness naming it Bagumbayani Village as an honor for the bayanis or heroes in the Philippines However Filipinos usually name their businesses based from the owner s name This practice is still very present nowadaysMoreover Filipinos have shown very much importance in helping those in need and not giving up easily despite the difficulties Walter who is a policeman has done his job well Though we often think of policemen as pulis patola a good for nothing cop Walter has helped Rory despite the trouble that they get through We would know that Walter was left by her wife and son because of another woman He may have a bad past but he has shown us that people changeRory has thought of him as a good for nothing cop but has assured herself that Walter is certainly unlike any policemen she had met She said Not that she had met many in Paez or even in Del Monte but those she had were either potbellied gun happy porkers or rheumy uncles put out to pasture all of them with noisy and long winded stories to tell about bank robberies and whorehouse raids after they d had a couple of beer SP02 Walter Zamora was unlike that Rory has also pointed out that English is what makes us Filipinos world class In her conversation with Tenny the town s vice mayor she has said that in this world you can t get very far without English That s why she always try to pronounce the words properly every time she sings in the karaoke bar As we can see most of the Filipinos think this way We usually consider those people who speak English well as educated English has become our basis in classifying how educated a person isOn the contrary we may also be wondering why Soledad did not take courage to fight and tell the boy not to touch her I was really confused if she likes the boy that it was okay for her that they ll have sex or she just really felt powerless that she wasn t able to fight However I cannot also blame Soledad for that She grew up to be alone and had no friends or suitors After what the boy did to her I think Soledad decided to just obey what the owners tell her and has expected that she will lose the job soonAs we read the story there are instances that make us wonder why the characters have decided to do this and that In case of Soledad who had been deported in Hongkong she was very brave that she was really willing to travel abroad for the second time using Rory s name If you consider the period she lives a lot of Filipinos want to go abroad because most of them think that they would get much money compared here in the Philippines Soledad has even said to Rory I want you to finish college I want to keep the house I want Nathan to grow up and become an engineer These have become the reasons why Soledad has to work again in another countryRory obeys her sister that she willingly stands as a mother of Nathan She must have lied to her sister about her schooling but I think she is happy for what she decided Soledad wanted to let her study Accounting because I think it s a practical job but Rory stopped and decided to follow her passion which is singing However Privately Rory still wished that she could finish at least a computer or tourism course at a vocational institute just to have something to put in that space on the resume sheet that always wanted to know about your Education even for a job that only reuired you to sit with strangers and endure their runny after shaves and even runnier palms The news of knowing the death of a few Filipinos abroad must be very painful to the families and also to us Filipinos Since we value family so much we always want the best for our family To repay Soledad s noble deeds Rory has promised that she ll give a proper burial to her sister However in the end both Rory and Walter have lost someone they loved Walter lost his wife and son who are now in England Also he is still not sure where to find his mother and sister for they have transferred a new house While Rory Soledad s sister doesn t know where and how to find the body of her sister Soledad is just like a bubble who vanishes in a thin air that no Filipinos except from her relatives or families have not known her deathLiterature is one way of defining our country and its people The novel has become a means to share to the world about the Philippines the Filipinos and its culture Through the novel the Filipinos are portrayed to be on its search for identity that will differ us from Asians or other nationalities This novel has become one of the important contributions in the Philippine Literature for it has successfully expressed to the world about the Filipinos and has left us a uestion to critically think and answer Who really are we The ending of the story has given us something to think about It tells us that Soledad is just one of the OFWs who were unfortunate in going abroad And it s true because it happens for real It may not be an OFW s death but oftentimes most OFWs are abused by the owners they work for Then their death has reminded us to ask Who is heshe and Why did shehe die However as time goes by we forget what happens to them especially if they are not our family or relatives In the end Soledad died being unknown in Jeddah and also unknown in the Philippines For short she s gone and people won t remember her death The ending may be that way but the novel has given us bond that Filipinos share As we read we ll know that this is Filipino culture or this is Filipino tradition By reading the novel I understand that I am Filipino because this is our culture and our tradition that we practice I can relate to the stories because I have learned heard and experienced those I may not have met other Filipinos abroad but we become one because we share the same culture and practice the same traditionPhilippine Literature let the Filipinos realize that we should be proud of who we are because our country the Philippines has ancestors who had fight thousands of wars in order not to be slaves of their own land OFWs who have worked very hard just to support their loved ones heroes who willingly sacrificed their lives to free us from the enemies and the younger generation who will shape the future And through literature it has successfully shared the meaningfulness of who really are we The Shadow of Gods (The Godling Chronicles, confused than ev.

Soledad's Sister

A casket arrives at the Ninoy Auino International Airport in Manila bearing the body of a woman manifested as Aurora V Cabahug one of over 600 overseas Filipino workers who return as corpses to this airport every year The real Aurora however is very much alive a karaoke bar singer in the distant town of Paez; the woman in the box must b. When I and my family went to Hong Kong last 2007 to enjoy our summer vacation it only made our summer worst like an acupuncturist pin you with thousand of needles one at a time slowly but surely It was a nightmare that until now I can t help but to regret everything I spent to that trip but one thing that really struck me most it was the number of OFWs or Overseas Filipino Workers in Central Victoria ParkYou can t imagine the whole park was populated by Filipinos who works as a nurse domestic helper drivers and many They went there to mingle with co Filipinos and have their spare time relaxing and picnicking with friends There are also stores that sold Filipino delicacies and products like our local junk food canned goods and instant noodle Even a foreigner or newly worked Filipinos can feel the presence of the spirit of his own culture in Victoria Park When you are planning to go to Hong Kong don t forget to visit Victoria Park I m sure you ll enjoy the view and the chirping voices of everyone and we re lucky enough that my cousin had a friend there working and she guide us to the park It was the whole replica of the Philippines in a very small rectangular land of Hong KongHow many Filipinos do you think died every year because of maltreatment of their employers Well only 600 of OFWs died every year and they were played by their employer like a toy that they didn t even think of a single soul living to the body of the innocent worker When I heard that my cousin was willing to go to Israel to work as a caregiver I was shocked and I want to force her to stop fortunately she successfully went to Israel and worked like what she planned and met a Jew family that cared her Not all of them really have the chance to meet nice people but what really forced them to work outside the countryWhen you tried to search the word OFW or google it you will see 5990000 results are currently been searched by Google in14 seconds That must be so impossible for a librarian to look for but the numbers of results have two in common it was the promised work and money you ll get abroad How promising it was like watching a TV commercial that repeats every 10 to 30 minutes that persuade the watchers to buy the product Money and work yes we need them to live but if you are willing to work and gain money you don t need to go outside the country and become a slave It s because people don t have contentment in life They want money so they work outside they want foreign goods they went outside they want green bucks they went outside and so on WTH can we even stop thinking of other countries and tried to work our countries political showbiznessThe event in Jose Dalisay s book Soledad s Sister happened in the Philippines but the story mentioned a lot of places around the world like Hong Kong San Francisco Jeddah and many were Filipinos migrated and worked to sustain the needs of their family back to their countryThe story evolves in the three main characters two still alive and the other died to unknown incident they have different stories to tell and each have different problem to be solve Soledad Cabahug corpse delivered to NAIA International Airport to be received by her family 26 lost and drowned Before the incident she was dedicated to her work to be a nanny of a King s son to save money for her son and sister s future Aurora Z Cabahug or Rory a promising singer and worked as entertainer at Flame Tree she lives with Sole s son in an expensive subdivision When SPO2 Walter G Zamora a policeman who had been forgotten by his family and wife who worked outside the country received a letter from NAIA and fall in love to Rory They went to Manila and received the corpse of Soledad and in a minute the corpse was stolen by an unknown thief What really happened to the corpse of Soledad Will Rory find light and peace after the incident Will Walter find his true love and his family in Marikina The characters of the book are unforgettable they are well developed but the writer But the problem of reading this book is the changing perspective of every set of paragraphs and sometimes the whole chapter nobody knows whom and nobody knows what really they discuss The whole book not only relates to the life of OFW but also relates to the problems of the whole society If I only have the chance to write a journal or an article to our school newspaper no doubt I ll write articles related to the society s anxietiesThe story end up open to readers there is no ending and it was like you are still in the beginning of everything There are still uestions that may ask like What really happened to Soledad before she died I asked myself the uestion for a week and I understand why because some OFWs died without any reason or cause because they were guarded by national guards If I can still remember if you worked in a King s household the national police are not allowed to investigate the cause of death but to stay the decaying body for three days It must be so awful for the family of the victim not knowing the killerA friend of mine reviewed the book and mentioned lack of identity It must be but not in the point of lacking her own personality identity but the personal identity that we search for the freedom of the victims They are unknown they become shadows and they become lost memories of everyone I can still remember that we bought adobo for lunch and Filipino made soft drinks that replenish me again Next time don t try to visit places that no one can speak English Picture taken from Central Victoria ParkRating Soledad s Sister by Jos Y Dalisay Jr 4 Sweets and the tragic events of every OFWs who worked hard abroad and abused like animals It s been awhile that I write reviews and I really

E her sister Soledad who used Rory's identity to secure a job in Saudi Arabia No one knows for sure how this woman died; the body bears signs of foul play and abuse and now waits to be claimed at the airportA Paez policeman Walter is assigned to drive out to Manila to pick up the body accompanied by Rory Both Walter and Rory who vaguely. I really liked Soledad s Sister I just love the familiarity of the book I find myself at times trying to connect to a book but I can t because it happened in New York Egypt or Hogwarts somewhere I ve never been to But this one is just too close to home I find myself saying Been there and done that like when Walter and Rory ate at Aristocrat near Malate Church How many times have I eaten chicken BB at Aristocrat in Malate I also love how Butch Dalisay narrate personal histories Even minor characters are given life by Dalisay by letting us take a peek at their lives something that will make you connect to them The story itself is so personalized and well thought of that you d think its non fiction that it really happened I can just imagine myself watching TV at home while Walter and Rory are filling a complaint at the police station However I still felt at times that it would have been best if conversations were in Filipino because I find myself translating the dialogue The story was open ended a lot of uestions left unanswered like what happen to Soledad What will happen to Rory How about Walter I m very much intrigued I do hope Dalisay would make a short story just to satisfy my curiosities especially about Soledad and her time in Hong Kong and Jeddah
