Student Who Lives in ‘Tagpi-Tagpi’ House, Proudly Posts Tarpaulin as New Engineer

They might live in a ‘tagpi-tagpi’ house (patched up, dilapidated house) but when Crystalle Mae Manalo passed the engineering board exams, she proudly posted her tarpaulin outside their home despite her grandma worrying about their home’s appearance.

In a heartwarming post on Facebook, Crystalle wrote about how her grandmother, Gloria Mamaradlo Manalo, worried about what people might say about their tagpi-tagpi house once she posts photos of her tarpaulin. But Crystalle is not ashamed of their house, even if it is dilapidated.

Crystalle posted on Facebook:

“Nanay: Okay lang kaya yan na sa barong barong natin ilagay yang tarpaulin mo? Makikita ng mga tao na tagpi-tagpi yung bahay natin?

Me: Nay ,yan ang pinakamagandang tagpi na nailagay natin. Salamat, Nay… sa lahat.”

Her story would go viral on Facebook, with many netizens expressing praise over her wonderful outlook in life.

Nanay Gloria is really so proud of Crystalle. On her Facebook account, she also posted a congratulatory message for the new engineer.

“Ganito pala ang nararamdaman mo na malaman na iyong apo isa sa mga pumasa sa board exam. Naiisip ko iyong mga nangyari sa buhay namin dalawa na tuwing byaran sa school wala kaming pambayad, puro paki-usap na lng. Eto na ngayon puro dasal na lang ang ginawa namin para makamit na niya iyong maging engineer. Salamat, Lord, hindi mo pinabayaan ang apo ko,” Nanay Gloria posted.

Crystalle graduated from BS Mechanical Engineering from Colegio de San Juan de Letran – Calamba as Academic Excellence Awardee!

But there’s more to Crystalle’s story than what she posted – and her proud uncle, Nowie Cruz Malonzo. shared it in a comment.

“Congratulations pamangkin. Pinagmamalaki ka namin lahat. Kami ay proud na proud syo, bilib na bilib kami sa ‘yo dahil pinakita mo kung gaanu ka tiyaga at kasipag para maabot ang mga pangarap mo di lang sa ‘yo kung di sa pamilya mo na maiahon sa hirap.

Di biro ang mga pinagdaanan mo makatapos lang sa pag aaral. Yun nagtitinda ka sa school ng biscuit candy at ng sari sari para lang may maibaon sa araw araw. Pinagsasabay mo ang paghahanap buhay at pag aaral. Ganun pa man nagawa mo pa rin panatilihin mataas ang grade mo at kaya naman pinagmamalaki ka rin ng mga teacher at ng school mo.

Kaya marami din mga mag aaral na nagpapasalamat sa ‘yo dahil naging isa kang inspirasyon sa kanila upang magtyaga at mag aral din ng mabuti. At sana lalu ka pa i-Blessed ng PANGINOON upang matupad mo lahat pangarap mo., GODBLESS Crystalle Mae Manalo WE [ARE] PROUD OF YOU. WE LOVE YOU.”
