Paquito Quote for the Day 43

Taking up something without any intention to let anyone knew it, is a big NO, especially if you are someone being looked upon as a role model of a law abiding citizen not only of your mother country but as to the whole world as well being recognized and affiliated with one of the favorite sports of the world.  The question lies between why and why  alone. Was it the urge of nature ? Was it flowing unto their genes ? Was it because their dumb reasoning can never be really considered as acceptable that they forgot to  process the cons of their act.

Respect the norms and the norms will respect you . – Paquito

How to get to Minor Basilica of Our Lady Of Rosary of Manaoag

Good day my warmest reading public, I’ve noticed that there are plenty of views looking for the right direction or I think the most accurate way to get to the Basilica Minore of Our Lady of Rosary of Manaoag which is located at Milo Street, Manaoag, Pangasinan Philippines. The following are the frame by frame instructions I’m offering to all of you who are first timer to go there and unaware or misinformed of how to really traverse the best possible route available with use of national highways such as North Luzon Expressway or NLEX then Subic-Tarlac Expressway or SCTEX and finally the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway or TPLEX which I think have reached the La Union province going up until the summer capital of the north, the Baguio City.  You can always check the Google Earth for an accurate and interactive way of learning how to get there without any room for error. Enjoy your trip in a most safest way.

mindanao ave point of origin

Point of origin for this trip shall start from the Mindanao Avenue extension, coming from Trinoma or North Avenue in Quezon City this is the highway or major on your right facing west towards Quiapo. Traverse the subway and in a couple of minutes you’ll be on the edge of the highway which is very obvious with the presence of clear signboards pointing to NLEX.. Head west or LEFT-TURN to that Mindanao Ave.-Smart Connect road to take the first Toll plaza.

Turn Right towards NLEX

TURN – RIGHT to North Luzon Expressway , if head straight you’ll miss the entry and you need to make a u-turn ahead and turn Right, now using the Cloverleaf .

Exit at SCTEX-Clark

After travelling for more than a distance of 75 kilometers, you are now ready to enter the very First EXIT from the NLEX by going rightmost lane and follow the rounding interchange road to Toll way of SCTEX, Clark Airport.

KEEP LEFT towards NLEX-SCTEX

Head straight and KEEP LEFT to continue towards direction of SCTEX and TPLEX expressways. This time the speed limit is well monitored by several mobile highway patrols, CCTV’s, and radar system which are strategically in place across the expressway. You’ll notice of some apprehension once you reach the next Toll plaza.

KEEP RIGHT follow signs for Concepcion- Hacienda Luisita-Tarlac-Baguio TPLEX

It wont be too long that you gotta keep right to traverse the expressway bearing the signboard read as Clark North, Hacienda Luisita, Tarlac, and Baguio City, TPLEX . This will lead you to interconnect with the last expressway prior to exit to the town in reaching the basilica.

CONTINUE to Tarlac-Pangasinan-LaUnion Expressway

Head straight towards the Tarlac – Pangasinan – La Union Expressway, this time you have an option where to exit as there are two exit points that were both manageable and convenient for your own decision. Urdaneta Toll Plaza exit or the Binalonan Toll Plaza. If you have plans to take breakfast or lunch at the Urdaneta town you have to take that exit but if not, then go ahead to the last and near the destination exit which is the Binalonan exit.

EXIT to BINALONAN Toll Plaza

After a more or less 182 kilometers of travelling or an hour and a half travel time, you are now on the last leg of the route. From the exit toll plaza, the basilica is more or less 9 kilometers away and you can be there with the traffic included at more or less in half an hour.

 Above is the Google Earth captured image showing its relation to road coming from the exits. The listed distance was 191 kilometers with a travel time of 2 hours and 23 minutes passing thru the NLEX, SCTEX and TPLEX. I’m encouraging you to leave early in the morning and leave the place after lunch if you’re allergic to traffic… take note that there is no such thing as peak season in trekking the road or the expressway since you’ll be sharing it with those traveler’s going to their respective provinces such as Tarlac, Dagupan, Nueva Eicija and even Baguio City.

Pangasinan City is rich in history when it comes to food and delicacies… locals will offer you “papaitan” and “tupig” , both are worth a try ! But before anything else, a solemn prayer and silent wishes is what you were there for and there’s no better way to spend it by lighting a candle in one of the sections of the holy basilica.

Planning your trip ahead is one of the best thing to do if it requires you to drive to less than 6 hours back and forth. Keep with you enough drinking water as you dont want to get upset stomach after trying those local foods which are all alien to your digestion system.

I hope these eight frame instructional guide will make your trip handy and serve more than what you are looking for, have a safe trip ahead and God Bless Everyone!

Paquito Answer for the Day 38

This one’s hot, after months of speculation and drama … the New York Knicks have agreed to trade NBA All Star and Olympian Basketball star Carmelo Anthony to the Western Conference Division title contender and home to Mr. Triple-Double and reigning league MVP Russel Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunders in exchange for several key players led by center Enes Kanter and Victor Oladipo. Shall we consider them with their own Big 3? Paul George was on board and NBA fans are too excited to see how this three will fare which was somehow came as an unexpected move given the many hindrances in landing Melo to a team like the Thunder.

Will they live up to the expectations ? Does it pose any threat to the title holder the Golden State Warriors ? That needs to be seen come opening of the NBA Games a month from now. Your thoughts please…

Paquito Quote for the Day 41

You can never change people’s thought in anyway you wanted and what they believe in when it comes to your own predicament. An analyst branded Kevin Durant as the P.O.A.T, or what he said was the Pettiest Of All Time, though another analyst or pod-caster defended the acts and the reason behind those petty things at least for the critique as to many why’s that KD had resorted to such Twitter blast directed toward the former organization where he grew up and molded to what he is right now.

Can anybody blame him for what he’d done? I myself can’t but to learn from those actions committed by one of the best player to come to the NBA.

Look, listen and learn … that’s the best part of it when a star is glowing beyond capacity. – Paquito

Game of Life We Play

Hello my dear readers and fellow bloggers, been a bit busy and have to attend to other matters, anyway… let me share my thoughts on whats happening in our surroundings. Your thoughts are of the same importance and I wanna hear yours by using the Leave a Reply portion and feel free to share if you find this helpful for you and your circle of friends. Thank you and enjoy reading!

Never ending political upheavals and mudslinging. Extreme weather conditions, never before experienced flooding, irreversible loss of lives and cultural divide are among the few that constantly headlines our broadsheet, glossy thin magazines and the social media. People are learning to accept reality by picking up lives where they stumble upon. Elected officials were all pre-occupied of their own beliefs, capacity to think and personal agenda while the nature and man made destruction’s are continuously done in broad daylight. Is this the life we seem to know? or is this the game our lives must live by for us to survive?

Today’s generation seemed to be blinded by the fast pace rituals of social media, the new iPhone was introduced into the market where the so called added features made it more superior with its competitor and even to its own previous versions. C’est la vie some people will say. And who cares the other side of the world will say, once asked what can he do to make the world a better place to live despite the alarming threat of nuclear attack from the  isolated North Korea.

We cannot ask people to do things we wanna do, there is no the same priority of importance any two person has in this world. For life is a game we usually play always to our advantage.

Paquito Answer for the Day 37

From a regional menace to a global “threat”… this was how the current North Korea’s series of ICBM test or inter-continental ballistic test were being described by some observers from the around the globe. How are the world leaders are responding as compared before is an issue we should be well aware of., as the North Korea’s so called experts claimed that they’ve “successfully tested a Hydrogen Bomb” which was ten fold stronger than the Atomic bomb dropped by the US during WWII that wiped out more than 200,000 peoples lives in an instant.

Will the world superpowers allows this to happen? or Will they turn their aim to the North Korean peninsula to put plug to fast growing menace or a more diplomatic approach be extended with utmost patience for the sake of peace and humanity.

You Got Issues, Confront It!

Afraid to face the consequences and it’s free irrational invective’s you’ll be hearing after a failed engagements ? It’s a do or die situation for you as you’re behind your targets in whatever your hands are up at and you’re like “what the hell am gonna do ., all the options were tried and yet… o’cmon” Will you choose to panic, not yet.

Scenarios like this are a handful in every organization or even in your circle of friends and more importantly on your own, right ? And since you’re a part of the deal you keep on failing to pick up the right pieces or push the right button to provide the best option, solution, answers and even the simplest dumbest yes might be the key to all of it…   To think that you’re prolonging the agony just add up a little problem here and a little problem there. Plug it one at a time. You may be missing the line of sight, the true line of direction that’ll lead you to the ultimate simple but effective move.

Remember that in every complex processes the potential solution rests somewhere along the middle, the process next to last or the step after the first. Keep your thoughts wide open about it as the tiniest gap commonly make the highest damaging impact in the end.

Never put excessive air and let the balloon explode nor contended with less as it will not even able to support its weight. Right amount is all you need. – Paquito

 

The 4 R’s of Success

Results especially as a fruit of great resource tastes sweetest according to many, that defines success and deserving an accolade or high respects from any of its peers and competitors. Too many complicated and simple documents have been published and they claimed it was the best way that befittingly describes success as for them,… the harder and difficult to achieve it the most worth celebrating it once those involved realize the thunderous reflection of downfall should failure becomes an option.. unavoidable destruction.

Whilst most are creatively employs techniques and scientific way or process very few take the road of success in the most unknown and less motivating way to regain success. There are four R’s of diversionary tactics or techniques that gives us a notion of negative way to achieve success in the end. You’ve must be surprised how could that be  and it’s effectivity ? Will it bring the same results? Will it end as normally as expected ? Or shall we relinquished the odds and accept the fate as it is? And walk away with the best and most practical outcome we can consider successful in the end.

There are four R’s that can clearly define these that may sound not good in the first but could transpose the results better for a long term cause.

REJECT – By rejection of or elimination of several reject-able odds, you are unconsciously                  exercising the process of elimination until you see the best potential and                                adaptable  solution or tangibles for that particular situation or predicament.

REPEAL – Maybe you got too many options or by product of ideas but still requires                              reconsideration or repealing clause as it might be too good to be true yet worth                  the key to rescind and reconstitute a new one that best suit the deal of the                            situation.

REPLACE – After a progressive and regrouping process of the odds and reorganization of                    every detailed tangibles but still we were unable to established a sound                                solution, think of it a hundredfold times before replacing the united stand that                    corruptibility literally reverberating inside every halls of the space. Though its                    a tedious process to start all over again it still worth the time once you all find                      the and shout in unison what is best and much needed for that particular                              challenging of corporate storm.

REPAIR – They said there is the ample and nice options that everybody abides with and                      the same all are unsatisfied with the profound results… the best way to                                  approach it is to do some repair either in details or with the majors. It is by far                    the easiest since it can be mustered with the re-organizing, eliminating,                                revoking of particulars relative to creation of a more dignified and company or                  personal aligned missions in reaching the desired direction of any particular                        deed.

Now that we are all aware that not all negative actions or whitewashing can create the same negative results but the opposite. Try to be the best and logical professional in order for you to get to move forward and successful in the end.

Negative results strengthen the aim of getting successful in the end. – Paquito 

 

Paquito Quote for Day 40

What a tense and unimaginable days it was for everyone of us, hearing those threats and relentless fears these two leaders were sending message across the globe. And what it means to us… just mere spectators of these colossal antagonist isolated for so many years waiting to realize of its provocations and led us back to the bad old days of ugly war recovery that nobody wanted to ever experience again.

Too many why’s and how’s were asked of by the younger generation and to provide answers point by point is better left out but move forward instead and seek a better recourse but a peaceful way of re-integration to the modern world.

Brotherhood should be, for a united neighborhood would be. – Paquito
