Grand Job Fair 2015

Unemployment diminishes the capacity of our people to do great things for themselves and their country. Ako ay nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng employers na nakilahok sa Grand Job fair ngayong araw.

Pangmatagalang Solusyon para sa Tunasan River

12034277_1001158339947546_3659420297574891332_o

Kaydaming beses nang pinalinis ang Tunasan River. Makailang beses nang nagsagawa ng dredging at clean up drive ang Lungsod ng Muntinlupa at San Pedro ngunit tila yata ay bumabalik ang basura .

Ngayong mayroon nang kasunduan sa pagitan ng Muntinlupa at San Pedro,  na naglalayong paigtingin ang pagpapalinis ng ilog, ang ating CENRO ay gagawa ng mga hakbang na muling magtataguyod ng kaayusan ng Tunasan River. Ang katuwang ko sa layuning ito ay walang iba kundi ang butihing punong lunsod ng Muntinlupa, si Mayor Fresnedi.

Sana ay matulungan kami ng mga taumbayan, lalong lalo na sa mga kababayan natin na naninirahan malapit sa Tunasan River. Disiplina ang kelangan upang ang tunay na pagbabago ay makamtan!

My October 26 – October 30 Journal

cropped-flower-border-21.jpg

My week starts with Sunday- with God’s loving, redeeming and assuring words. One of my vitamins aside from a glass of dalanghita juice which can surely sustain me for the rest of this week.

After attending the Flag raising I usually go around the City Hall and visit the departments. I sometimes visit them per floor. Random checks like these is effective para matukoy ko ang tutuong dapat ayusin.

I then head on to my office to attend to all callers: sometimes I feel like a doctor eh. Minsan para ding attorney , minsan pwede ding counselor: giving advice and sharing programs.

Oath taking of SKL- Pacita Chapter

 

 

Thursday is my oath-taking day. I hold an average of four associations every Thursday. Luckily, there are so many areas dito sa Mayor’s Office which can function as perfect spots for oath taking. Nakaka pag exercise din ako sa pag criss-cross from one spot to another.

Signing documents is something that I do regularly.  Then I reserve Fridays for weddings. May mga gusto eh solo wedding…so be it! It’s a celebration of love kaya hindi dapat pinaghihintay.

Sometimes i go out to see the pagawains, the traffic, at iba pang mga  paki dito-paki doon. A woman’s touch is highly needed sa mga beautification projects ..especially sa landscaping . WOW, many things to do in those areas! Calling SPUR and POSO!

At night time,  I go around the city  to see if the additional lighting in dark areas,  bridges and pathways are sufficient. Parang kulang.

pangako

 

Pag may hindi natapos for signing, I take it home- pag hindi pa din natapos, I continue signing them after dinner. I watch balita and teleserye while doing it. Di naman ako mapili sa balita. All channels are fine with me, kapamilya kapuso, kapatid, Net25 ok sakin. Hopefully by the time na tapos na ang mga balita, tapos na din ako mapirma. Ako, kasi yung tao na gusto ko, tapos lahat ng documents for signatures.

This week, pumasyal ako sa COMELEC office para tingnan kung ang mga tao ay komportableng naghihintay. So glad to see everyone’s comfortable. Job well done COMELEC and CSU. It’s very neat and orderly! Thank God maginhawa at mahangin sa area. Comfortable ang mga tao. Everything is not perfect , but going well. May I mention also the person who is very neat in our stock room. Told him to help in storing old files, make it neat and systematic.

Inspecting the COMELEC benches this morning

Ako ay natuwa sa nakita ko ngayung umaga. Napakaraming kabataan ang nagpaparehistro para makaboto sa 2016. If the youth of San Pedro will ARISE and ACT, they have the strength to generate a HUGE transformation in society. Hanggang katapusan na lang ang voters’ registration kaya magsadya na agad sa COMELEC office ng ating City Hall para magparehistro at magpabiometrics

A peak at the old times

Nostalgia is such a powerful feeling. It is a “friend” that stays with you forever. These photos of old San Pedro take me back. I close my eyes, and I see the young me treading along these dusty roads. No matter what happens, some memories can never be replaced.

My October 19 Journal

It took me a long time to connect with you on FB. WOW, I really would love to but I was oh toooooo…busy.  But okay, I told myself I have to find time for it, maybe an hour or less every day will do.

I really do love to communicate but my work oftentimes prevents me from doing so.  I sometimes wish that we could be like good actors or actresses that when the Director shouts “Action!,” Take 1 or Take 2 lang tayo. Tapos ang shooting ng pelikula! Napakadami nating magagawa kapagka ganon. Ang isang trabahong simple o routine ay pwede nating i-expand o i-innovate.

Example: Environment. Mandated mag-segregate ng basura ang bawat bahay o business establishment. Sa gobyerno, hindi. Dapat sa atin ito nagsisimula – sa opisina, sa bahay ng mga opisyales ng pamahalaan, sa bahay ng mga staff. Kasabihan, ‘practice what you preach’. But yes, we hope to get there.

ReduceReuseRecycle

Sa City Hall, we have boxes for used paper. Hindi ito nilulukot at di’ tinanatapon kasama ng ibang wet waste. Ang mga boxes ay tinitiklop at kung hind pwedeng i-re-use ay ibinibenta to be re-cycled. Not yet perfect but we will get there!

Many are now using used paper for drafts. I was glad when I saw a memo of Kons. Diwa Tayao.  It’s on re-used paper!  My office, for one, does not use good paper for inter-office memos.  I have my own box for used paper, and write on the unused portion.  But not to worry, there is nothing confidential there. Nothing at all.

Aside from this, I wish we can say that all of us at City Hall are doing the three R’s – Reduce, Re-use, Recycle.  We can also do it in our own houses, in all barangays, all subdivisions.

I plan to form a Team to undertake Repair, Maintenance and Housekeeping under OM. Walang gagawin  ang team na ito but to see to it that everything is in good running order – chairs, tables, equipment, lahat ng pwedeng kumpunuhin o ayusin bago pa man lumaki ang sira, gamit man o hindi.

During Mayor Calex’ time, nagkaron tayo ng Motorpool, Engineering at GSO depot.  Aside from new hardware, may isang lugar tayo para sa recovered used materials mula sa mga ginibang lumang building, kasama ng mga sobrang materyales sa mga bagong pagawain.

Everything should have its place.  Ang office ay office – not a storage or stockroom. There should be a place for old files, which explains why we have some eight (8) 20-footer vans sa may bandang likod ng ating munisipyo – to keep our old files.

Part also of my Major Projects and Programs is the de-silting and dredging of the San Pedro and the San Pedro-Tunasan  rivers by at least 1 to 2 meters deep, pati lahat ng mga creeks at esteros.  It is a solution to flooding. Nagkaron na nga ng mga parang island sa gitna ng daluyan dahil mababaw na ang ilog.

Gusto ko ring magkaron ng sidewalk ang lahat ng ating mga major streets para ang sidewalk ay para sa tao, at ang kalsada ay para sa mga sasakyan.

 

I am calling all true-blooded and inspired San Pedronians!

Help me, Help our City!

Join me as we all work towards a City we can call our own and truly love.

The works are aplenty but the laborers are few.

Madami tayong magagawang maganda para sa ating syudad.

WE’VE GOT TO DO IT!

The walk from San Pedro Apostol Church to the COMELEC office was poignant and reflective at the same time. I may walk slowly, but I NEVER walk backwards.
