The word TRUST.

"Trust is like a plate...Once it's broken, though you can fix it, the plate will never be the same again"

In life most often people fail to recognize the value of Trust. When you are in a relationship, you commonly hear loss of trust in someone they love  or someone they confide for some sensitive matters. Too many words to define and describe the meaning of trust.

In our day-to-day lives, we face daunting tasks that sometimes we lose our composure. What shall we do then? Learn to contemplate and start to evaluate things...and ask yourself --- am I doing it right? Can I handle the task? Losing trust in someone's capability to handle a task is everyone's common predicament in the corporate world and in public service as well. If we know how to take a pause, allow yourself to take a deep breath, be calm and know the right moment will present itself to you and have faith to wait. Stop bragging about the issue. Don't force the timing. Trust in HIM and trust yourself. Believe me, you can do it successfully by doing nothing. 

Believe yourself that YOU are capable. Give yourself the opportunity to excel by trusting in yourself that you can make it. Wait calmly, and you will find that the necessary answer appears before you. In time with perseverance...and endless patience...just move only when the moment is right, breathe deeply and start at the beginning. Our goal will be hit.

"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish He didn't trust me so much." Mother Teresa of Calcuta

PGMA leads 2nd National ICT Summit

Familiar faces from the field of Information Communication Technology were seen present in the celebration of the 2nd National ICT Summt at Fontana, Clark Field Pampanga. The first day of the event was graced by Her Excellency, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. It was hosted by Metro Clark Subic ICT Council led by Mr. George Sorio, Sec. Ray Anthony Roxas-Chua III, Chairman of the Commission on ICT (CICT); Benigno Ricafort, President and CEO of Clark Development Corporation (CDC), ICT Commissioner Mon Ibrahim, other NICP Official and members.

Our globally competitive City is also looking for a BPO locator that can possibly invest and see the big potential of our city. I know we can comply with the working environment and demands needed to set up a particular BPO Company. We tried to put linkages with a variety of potential strategic business partners during the summit by attending the business matching opportunities late in the afternoon wherein we met an officer from Sutherland, the leading Offshore Outsourcing company in America. They have Outsourcing IT Call Center in the Philippines and other countries.

 And as we went through the process of exchanging information and establishing new business contacts, an officer from Sutherland company advised me to email our city's profile and competitive edge.

My documentation on this particular event is kind of pathetic! My video camera which i just borrowed from my sister didn't do the work!! My apologies to the reader.

Halloween experience of a single soul.

It took me an hour roving around the public cemetery before i finally found the tomb of Mariano Malibiran. When we were young he stands as our "yaya" who significantly shows his love and cares for us without asking even a single centavo. He does all the sacrifices as if we are his unborn children. When he reach the peak of his life and started to get sick, my brother whom his favorite and closer to him does the sacrifice of feeding and taking him into a bath most of the times as he can no longer do it himself alone.

Rendering World Class Public Service.

(Photos was taken during the launching of websites of the 25 Barangays under the Barangay On-line program coinciding to the Barangay Week-Assembly Meeting of the City Government of Balanga led by Mayor Joet, Vice Noel, SP Members and with the respective Barangay Chairman of the 25 Barangays) 

Allow me to give you some glimpses on how I came to tread the path of government service. Way back 1998, I was working as a Secondary Public School Teacher in Tirona HS, Kawit Cavite. I am a teacher by profession and finished my masteral degree in education but opted to shift to the challenging world of public service in local government. I was placed in local government service with the help of my sibling's good friend. The man who is now one of the country's best legislators also serves as my mentor. I owe to him where I am now. My sincere love and respect for this man is immeasurable. I can't even imagine myself sitting in an executive chair and handling techie personnel.

Being in this field of government service has really developed my professionalism at work and service to people. As the years passed, I learned to craft my personal road map, one of this is to make a difference in the lives of the people I served with great pride and honor, with vision to become a world-class servant leader; proactively reinventing myself to meet the demands of the people I serve with and strive to become the best in everything that I accomplish.

 However, it is not easy to be in this field. You have to cope with the diverse effects of its changes in terms of politics and professionalism in order to survive. Your heart must be in it for you to be able to endure sacrifices, not only for yourself, but for the welfare of the people you serve.

I hope to broaden my horizon in the field of public service.With the support of my very energetic & workaholic world-class superior  and equally hardworking office personnel, I'm sure that hand in hand, we can make it to the top. I'm a person who wants to experience a more challenging role. While everything changes including our needs, I believe in giving myself more chances to work with people who have global vision to serve and protect the interest of the needy. I assume it is everybody's common goal. With the Lords guidance, i will forever remain a public servant.
