Biography of MELVIN BANGGOLLAY
I love poetry there is no doubt about it.
I was born in a poor family
but nurtured with humility,
Tendered and cared with simplicity
by parents whose hands showed me
the joy of life and all its glory
amidst great life pains along the way
of making me a man, I am today
as a lover of peace and harmony
as an advocate of nature's ecology
and a soul searching God's beauty.
I am presently residing at Tabuk, Kalinga, Philippines and presently working at the Department of Trade and Industry as a senior specialist.However, I was born at Saliok, Natonin, Mountain Province, Philippines to a poor family. I was able to finish my degree of Bachelor of Science in Commerce, major in Accounting and management at St. Mary's University, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines as an scholar of the National integration Study Grant Program (NISGP) sponsored by the Department of Education and National Student Loan Center, Philippines. I owed my success to my parents unending support, love and concern to my every undertaking. I also earned my Master of Public Adminstration (MPA) at Kalinga-Apayao State College.
I entered the government service since 1991 after earning my degree. I was once a clerk, college instructor, financial analyst and as a training and program specialist at the Department of Trade and Industry where I am now connected.
I may not have Sharepares's tongue
That can elicit the winds commands
But I have a heart and a sublime mind
That can go even far what is beyond
To bring the light of my magical wand
To inspire and give joy to anyone.

A Love Went Wrong
The sun keep on shining high With sweet and tender smiles As melody of rhythm fill the sky with scents of joy more than mile.

Ullalim, The Epic Of Love Of The Maducay...
ULLALIM, THE EPIC OF LOVE OF THE MADUCAYAN By Melvin Banggollay Jr. An ullalim epic is a traditional music and poetry form of the Philippines. These are long chanted stories passed down for hundreds of years that tell the exploits of heroes. They are classics of the Malayo-Polynesian language family. The most skilled poets would memorize epic cycles that took two to four days to recite during all-night dramatic performances. Two examples of precolonial (before the Spanish came) epics that survive today are Biag ni Lam-ang (Legend of Lamang) in Ilocano (a northern Luzon dialect) and Ibalon in Bicol (a southern Luzon dialect) . The term ullalim is sometimes used today to refer to that style of song, but the real ullalim is the epic poem of the Kalinga people. An article I read says that the singer would dress up in brilliant, flashy clothes like the hero described in the story.

What I Am Is God’s Gift, What I Become I...
WHAT I AM IS GOD’S GIFT, WHAT I BECOME IS MY GIFT TO GOD What I am is God’s gift, what I become is my gift to God tells us that our own body and the life that breath in our body is God’s precious gift to us but what this body can become and what sense or impact of our being as a person to others and to God is our gift to the Almighty. Our own body and life is our own gift from God on the day of our creation from womb till we joined this world to become what we want to mirror in this journey of life. God has given us all the provisions to live and all the faculties we need to grow as a person. He gave us a body strong enough to withstand trials of life like illness, sorrows and pains to keep us not so much fragile to anything that we can paint our own journey in this life. No doubt the life we breath is indeed God’s most precious gift to all of us. Precious than anything like glittering gold or diamonds. Our life is really beyond compare being the ultimate reasons God had created this world and the very reason why He gave his only begotten Son to secure and protect such gift to all of us. Truly, our own life is our gift from God but what we become as a person is our gift in return to God.

Once more in memory I vividly see
The golden moment with my daddy
