Ex-President at last07:44 AM Monday February 20, 2017 |

I was elected high school batch president a few months before our graduation. That was before you were born. I was never replaced nor allowed to request for replacement. Many times in the past, I suggested to have a general election to give chance to the others who may want to serve. There were some… read more

Thou Shall Not Kill10:00 PM Saturday February 18, 2017 |

We have become too learned and powerful that we now ignore the basic teachings of the church. Our powers corrupt us in a way that we feel we are indestructible and untouchable. We may not personally believe in all the teachings of the church but even without any religion, our sense of goodness should tell… read more

Longines Watch and Batteries11:34 PM Wednesday February 15, 2017 |

Battery-operated watches are a pain in the ass. Their batteries are expensive and must be replaced every year or else it will corrode the watch and destroy its mechanism. A few days after I arrived from the US, I discovered that all my battery-operated watches have dead batteries. The next day, I brought three to… read more

Refund cellphone charges10:57 PM Wednesday February 15, 2017 |

On Feb 13, I couldn’t use my internet because the payment reminder from PLDT keeps popping up and blocking my usage. It says our payment of P3,000 something is due on February 13. That means our payment is not yet overdue. But on that day, they were already blocking us for using the connection. Is… read more

Slow-down and avoid stress01:48 PM Tuesday February 14, 2017 |

I spent an hour on the phone talking with a long time friend of ours, another Jun. Our topic was all about death of people known to us, sick people, and stress. Nasermonan pa ako. He said we should avoid stress and not magnify our problems. Masyado lang daw kaming mabait at mahiyain. Kung sa… read more

Goodbye Kumpareng Jun01:30 PM Tuesday February 14, 2017 |

I got a surprise call from Sgt. Jerry two hours ago. He was my very first close in security assigned to us by General Jun, his commander from the Marines. That must be 15 years ago. He left, came back and left again. His last posting with us was cut short because he had a… read more

Dinner with Daphne, Monica and Eric10:43 PM Monday February 13, 2017 |

I usually arrive on time for my meetings but ever since I came back two weeks ago, I was always late to my appointments. I am adjusting again to the time allowance I needed to reach my meetings on time. Before, I needed half hour allowance to go to Makati. It became 45 minutes, then… read more
