The most awaited election in the Philippines have gone full of drama, fanfare, comedy and nerve wrecking experience to those candidates as it was the day of judgment and all is fair under the sun come declaration day of the most number of votes given by the local voters. The five candidates declared and claimed it was their time, to lead and bring change and lasting comfort to every countrymen but when do you think is the right time, right?
I believed there is no such thing as right time in this case, the politics. Everything falls unto its place without anybody knowing it is the right time, the timing they say should commensurate the needs of the voters who have grown hungrier for change in economy, peace and order, job creations, freedom to everything as if they’re forgetting the current bible for civil society to follow to live a normal and peaceful life in the country. If my recollection is right, hmmmnn, I hope its right. Every child born in a day is destined to experience life battles, happiness, milestones and more and they’re not yet aware during those times that it was bound to happen and must be consummated to move forward to a simple or greater transcripts of the so-called life.
Back to reality we are about to welcome a new leader who will shoulder the boon and vain of the position for the next 2,190 calendar days starting next month of June 2016 and the best way to start it right is by firmly believing in the conscientious predicament a true leader must possess and people of the country who approved it without avariciously asking their chosen one if he’s really into it. And like a true gentleman, acceptance were giveth and to consummate it within the span mandated he humbly ignore the true revelations of the election results by saying a few words that until such time an official declaration has been made that it is the only time he will address the people who cried for a better future, a better governance and better unity seamlessly knitting the gap that they claimed had vast effects to their common lives. Words spoken during campaign should not be construed as the real solutions as the country needs its people to participate in the realization of each promises.
Unite, Heal and Move-onare the three most important words these five presidential bets must keep in their minds as it is unto their hands lies the new foundation of a new horizon. As a citizen of the country I am for the unification of all these candidates knowledge and vast experiences for the promotion of a greater country we are aspiring for, wouldn’t it be a great sight to see the four sitting side by side with the chosen leader contemplating the next big move our country needs in the next six months? five heads am pretty sure are better than one. With so many things but little time to do it simultaneously it is high time but we Filipinos deserved to see realistically the true meaning of a great country. By moving-on and laying the hands of wisdom on the table and humbly ask what can i do to help this country be great again?
We are all Filipino, We are our Country and We are All United
The summer months are extended according to our reliable weathermen! We have a lot to do to while away the scorching heat and the warm wind cloaking your skin. Doctors warned that beach goers and working people directly exposed under the sun must put extra protection for them to feel “comfortable”? Mood swings are abound due to heated winds as some are trekking the heights of Baguio and Tagaytay Cities to temporarily escape these extra strong hot humid air. On the positive side this is the right time to rush built works to put into their advantages a dry weather brings to their programmed chart.
Eating the right foods is a sure fire way to fight if not limit the heat, fruit juices rich in vitamins to keep us rehydrated and put our blood pressure at normal readings. Taking a bath twice as before also gives us a breather, sporting a uv rated sunglasses, cooling cap and light or pastel colored tops and shorts generate the comfy we are wanting to. But is this enough to assure that you’ll never hit the boiling point of blood pressure once you receive the power utility bill after a round the clock usage of your window or split type air conditioning units come rainy months? Think about it ….
While the dry season is extended let’s enjoy the positive effects it gives to us! Hit the pool, drive to up to the mountains, eat Halo-halo or ice cream, wear your best six pack abs or beach body with those compression tops and you’ll surely meet your newfound acquaintance and thank the Mother Nature for extending the Summer heat..
We are all lucky to be born in this planet and cared for the first nine months by a woman we call our Mother. She is the most important person in our lives and am pretty sure all the children of the earth agrees to it whether you are a kid or man old enough to raise a family.
I wanna start my first ever blog as a tribute to the person who made it possible for me to be where I am right now, the source of my Strength who taught me to Aspire and Inspire people and courageously pushed me to explore the world of everything from my profession of being an Architect to the sports I’ve loved most and develop wisdom towards being a good and respectable gentleman and a man for others.
My mother is the eldest among the brood of 8 and the only girl born to her parents Jaime and Visitacion both are now in the kingdom of heaven. Linda Santilices Emerenciana was born on the 5th day of December 1943 in the far flung island of Pandan Catanduanes Bicol province, she resembles a lot of my Lolo Jaime and learn to swim at an early age as their house stands at the foothold of a sea. She met my father Gavino and raise a family of 7 with a set of twin whom she considered as the lucky charms of the family.
Her Younger Years
She holistically prays the rosary in Latin every 6 o’clock in the evening together with her parents and she live a life of a plain young woman until a catastrophic storm surge engulf the tiny island and raised the seawater above the roof on that ungrateful evening, Lolo Jaime tied her into a coconut tree to survived the flood including her brothers. She’ll never forget that evening as she always retold how it happen and made her a better swimmer.
50 years and counting
She started her career as a full time mother 55 years ago and she never run out of an idea, humor and unconditional love towards us. She taught us how to cook, wash clothes, clean the house, water the plants, throw the garbage, to pray, to study hard-harder-hardest and the good values that builds our character and always reminds us to talk to each member of the family and to our Tatang.
Inang we love you
Today as we celebrate the occasion of our mother let me say my heartfelt thank you for always being the most understanding mother and the kindest Inang to us. Your unconditional love, care, inspiration, warmth and passion shared to us will always be the foundation of our existence and the formation of our good character.
What a great day to start my first ever blog intended for everyone to see, read, commented and reacted upon that’ll cover several areas of concerns to highlight a few that touches the life, social media, arts, politics, business, great places, good food, construction and project management, daily products that help everyone’s daily life experience tremendous changes economically. And of course the wide arrays of the sports world trivializing momentous events breaking long standing world records and dissecting the genes that’s running into a champions heart and share the trade secrets that they’re made of.
Expect more from here on….
