IF EDSA COULD SPEAK

Hello fellow bloggers and my dear readers, social is traffic about peoples complain and disappointment as their usual travel have to endure the effect of the new scheme being done in a dry-run phase of the most utilized, driven and clogged major road in the metropolis. Let me re-blog my previous article almost two years ago to lessen your discouragement.

It was made for a great purpose long before the millennial’s are born, to aide the moving of goods from the outer skirts of the Metro Manila to its several market distribution drop offs for further trade. People are happier before but not today. People kept the blame to EDSA which is always as serene as a pristine sea every time our Pambansang Kamao, the Manny Paquiao fights in the desert of America and also during the Lenten Season. During the 16 hours stretch of the day, we keep on hearing unconditional blame, cursing EDSA of its traffic status in every transistor radios, internet feeds, social media users uttering words of dissatisfaction and many others. But why curse a highway that can’t speak a single word? IMG_5166

 

I’ve asked myself, If EDSA could speak, we could be hearing the same words we’ve used to  utter mercilessly, enduring the weather and population disturbances without any respite. If only EDSA could speak, it might be telling us in our dreams to “please stay away in my spine as i am now the oldest and the weakest link of my tributary bloodlines as almost all of you are scrambling every void space that it have that it can no longer hold.” Now we are treated to a new scheme that give a little space but a lot of complains not only from EDSA but from circumferential road 5 as well. Now there two instead of one major problem.

We don’t need to wait until EDSA could speak, we dont even need to expect that it can, for it will never can.

Traffic is a great experience we fail to manage happily. .-Paquito

Share Your Passion – My 18 TDL

What keeps you running, how do you cope up with the demands of daily grind, why do you let yourself being pounded by those ups and downs of life and still able to paint a smile in the end telling yourself “glad you made it”? Motivational words that encourage us simply provide that normal feeling of seeing the light at the other end of the tunnel, isn’t it? Getting up early and doing routine things day in and day out can be described as the gas that propels us to act reflexive. Each of us has our own drive!

How would you like to share that craftiness to others we called passion? Opening up with the goal of helping others or embarking to pro-bono service is what we can consider “passion” . Are you ready to share or to reach out, without thinking of anything in return? There are a lot of people around us who need a little bit of you or your expertise, unsolicited advice can be fruitful if delivered with the right timing. Are you a retiree, on vacation with so much time to spare which is enough to finish a full cycle  of help? Do you get the idea? Though were sure of  many critiques along the way, we can put our energy to those who are willing to listen, act and participate. There are a lot of avenues you can begin to share your idea’s, starting with your underclassmen up to the grandparents who are more than willing to listen to your “newbie experiences” and they’re more than enthusiastic to share their own .. just make sure you pay attention in order to let them at least go down memory lane. You might hear stories you’ve never heard of like getting lost at the train station and how’d they found you, stories like that brings out a new lesson even in the littlest way, isn’t it?

Before we forget, sharing is a blessing in disguise… not only for you but for others as well. Give it a try and you’ll be amazed of the results but please manage your expectations as it is not a hundred percent scene as how you’ve imagine it. Just be truthful about it and sincere… besides that’s what you’re there for!

They say that the start is always the hardest, but not with these one… start with your relatives, friends and professional circles… to your community also. An expert always have that leadership instinct ready to disperse any blobbing stomach when face with adverse situation. Hey, do you still know Mr. Pressure? I thought you’ve gone friends with it long before…. so carry on, share your passion and expand the horizon.

That Golden State Warriors vs Oklahoma City Thunder Game

As an NBA fan from the Southeast Asia, I always keep tab on the updates of the games especially when superstars are on the floor. The game between Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder are somewhat far from the expectation we have after Kevin Durant decided to join the Splash Brothers with numerous reason he alone knew of. Speculative media wrote of several stories as if they’re Kevin Durant.

With the way the game transpired in 40 minutes span, one thing is pretty obvious… Russel Westbrook and his team mates are nowhere between the line of happy and sad or whatever you may call it. We thought that NBA is the highest form of competition in basketball, where the champs are branded as the World Champion… to which I disagree as it is more appropriate to call them USA Champs as no other country are competing in this league, its’ all Americas state’s involved and together with a few European, Asian or other race joining the bandwagon of individual seeking success in the kingdom of basketball giants.

True to its word and meaning that “change is the only permanent thing in this world” that’ caught Kevin Durant’s heart to switched team, a lot of memes and other mocking games were directed to him that even his former ally Russel Westbrook took part as seen in several video clips… including Stephen Curry. If these are part of the marketing awareness strategies, i think this wont make the parents of the million kids and grown up fans proud, once copied and absorbed as a normal part of the deal of being one of the best point guard of the game. We believe that an NBA player is a gentleman in all facets of his stature.

Focus must be limited to the competition, letting the ball dribbled and led to the basket telling the fans who’s better and the best after every game. Skills and basketball IQ should be shown instead of antics and verbal disturbia,  where when men’s ego, once awaken sometimes equates to devastating result…. just as the way the Golden State Warriors demolished the Oklahoma City Thunder in their last game.

Play your best, fair and square on the floor not in front of the camera reels. – Paquito

Paquito Answer for the Day 10

Getting invited to a party for a cause somehow ends up as a drinking binge to be honest, while others are there for the real cause most of the other half are not. Is there any professional way to tell these people who are a bunch of prominent one so to speak that really take part in advocacy in the first hand to properly observe the obvious reasons why the activity is being held?

Certain things do happen unexpectedly in all occasions, people in attendance especially guest or the host tend to lose control of themselves once under the influence of alcohol. Keeping it on check is very simple, if you are the host never consider putting or consolidating drinks with high alcohol content to ensure rough attitude is neutralize. While it is indeed unavoidable to some , still it can be controlled or kept on check by setting up a corner table at the opposite end of the stage or center of occasion.  And if you are an attendee and keeping yourself sober all throughout the program, the best thing that you can do is to  wait for the program to end then invite your close allies outside of the place and merrily drink your heart out till the next morning. Case solved. Agree? Your thoughts are very important please let me hear it straight from you by responding through commentary box.

A program for a cause is not a cause to be ruined with by your unsolicited gesture.-Paquito
