5th year of Gumamela's Lapist at Papel Outreach Program was held @ Little Angel Learning Center in Cubao. The program started at 9;00 and ended @ 12noon. It was a great experience bonding with the children. They enjoyed the games, bring me, stop dance, spelling contest, trip to Jerusalem, and others. The volunteers had good time too. 

This initiative will not be possible without the help of my friends from other country, my family and volunteers who really embrace volunteerism in their hearts. This year I was about to cancelled the event because my time was consumed in election campaign but my friends insisted to push through the event.

This is my advocacy, my life. Helping others in the best I could do. I may not have everything but I have a pure heart who speaks goodness and offered community service for the less fortunate ones. Thank you Lord for everything!

Our New President

I encountered President Duterte last year thrice, first the Go Negosyo Forum in Makati, series of talks regarding the migrant issues and during the campaign period in Pandacan. I am blessed because I had a chance to see him in person, to talked to him and I was mesmerized how his brain and logic works.

I hope also this administration will definitely deliver the service Filipinos deserve for especially the sector I am representing the OFWs. One of our major concerns and dilemmas are the government agencies that handle the committee. As a volunteer how i wish there advises and rules are being implemented. We have so many good regulations and projects for OFWs but its not properly implemented. Awareness is not enough. 

Best of luck Mr. President.

Ligaw Na Alaala


Ligaw na Alaala


Biglang kinalabit ng lungkot.
Ang diwang naglilimi-limi,
Pinapalingon, ngunit pilit nilalabanan,
Ang dikta ng malumbay na awitin.
May naalala,
May gustong sambitin ang mga labi,
Piping sigaw ang pangalan mo,
Ngunit di pagagapi o kaya'y patatalo.
Buntong-hininga,
Nababagot,
Nalulungkot.
Tinitingnan sa gilid ng silid, 
Ang iyong obra, 
Ang larawang masaya.
 
(Ang larawan ay sariling obra, kuha sa bansang Japan)

Once in a Lifetime



 Japanese Dress
 Enjoying the experience
Coronia 


I had countless unforgettable moments during my Japan Trip but having to wore the Kimono dress was one of it. Thank you to Machi-mama for sharing her expertise and articulately dressing me without any hesitation and for free.

The kimono is a Japanese traditional garment. The word "kimono", which actually means a "thing to wear" (ki "wear" and mono "thing"), has come to denote these full-length robes. The standard plural of the word kimono in English is kimonos, but the unmarked Japanese plural kimono is also sometimes used. Kimono is always used in important festival or formal moments, it is the representative of polite and a very formal clothing. Kimono are T-shaped, straight-lined robes worn so that the hem falls to the ankle, with attached collars and long, wide sleeves Kimono are wrapped around the body, always with the left side over the right (except when dressing the dead for burial) and secured by a sash called an obi which is tied at the back. Kimono are generally worn with traditional footwear  and split-toe sock. (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimono)

A Decade of Friendship

#ProOFW #OFWadvocates #teamOFW

Kenjie, the founding Chairman of PEBA. He is an OFW in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I admire him for being calm despite the adversities we face in Social Media. His untiring effort in reaching out for OFWs tru his blog, his dedication to his family and his faithfulness to his wife is behind compare. 

Hannah, the Secretary General of OFW Family Party-List. We became friends in unexpected ways, in time I am badly needed someone to talked to. I am one of the pioneer member of the OFW Family CLub in Taiwan way back 2004. We bonded well. Our friendship were tested by many tribulations and uncertainties but we remain loyal to each other.

Now a days, its a challenge to find a true individual who will stick to your side thru thick and thin but I am lucky enough I have them both on my side. Come what may I know they have my back. It is safe to say they will never tolerate me if they think my path and conviction is in jeopardize.

Yohokama Temple @Japan



“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”

I pray that everyone will have a peace of mind and contentment for a better world. Now a days, what you'll read in newspapers, heard in a radio and see on TV are not the promised of heaven. Killings, famine and natural destruction is rampant.

Sleeping Japanese Way

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –

Chillin' @ The Park (Chiba, Japan)






“An idea is like a play. It needs a good producer and a good promoter even if it is a masterpiece. Otherwise the play may never open; or it may open but, for a lack of an audience, close after a week. Similarly, an idea will not move from the fringes to the mainstream simply because it is good; it must be skillfully marketed before it will actually shift people's perceptions and behavior.”

One Fine day

 Ang dami kong fear dati, paggising ko pa lang ramdam na ang pag-aalala ngunit mula ng isuko ko ang lahat sa Kanya naging matiwasay ang aking buhaoy. Mas nakakatulong din ako sa community ngayon at mas natutunan ko na rin pahalagahan ang aking pagkatao.

Bandila Interview

 with Ms. Apples Jalandoni of ABS-CBN

 Venue: POEA, Ortigas


I was in the news for the Senate has approved the proposed law of Sen. Recto re Php150,000 for tax exemption of OFWs from Php 10, 000. Our group and the entire OFW community welcome the development and happy to know that after the grilling battle in the Congress and Senate finally they came to their senses. We are just hoping Pres. Noynoy will approve the law.
