UST can cross the line

The largest human cross was achieved by 13,266 participants at an event organised by the University of Santo Tomas (Philippines) in Manila, Philippines, on 9 March 2011.

Imagine if all these more than 13,000 people accepted the Lord Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior, wouldn’t it be truly a mighty human cross showcasing God’s glorious victory? And wouldn’t the University of Santo Tomas faithfully serve its means-that is to educate people towards the love and fear of God?

That would really be UST crossing the line from higher education to eternal salvation.

I’d like that.

Silly Me

It was a Tuesday, and it was Praise & Worship practice night. I walked in the hall and my friends we’re all smiles… some were laughing.

Why?

I was wearing a HONG KONG t-shirt.

So what’s funny about that? Just the other day, 8 Chinese nationals died in a hostage situation in the Philippines and the Chinese were raging with anger.

Silly me… good thing I didn’t bump into some Chinese here in Dubai. My shirt could have been ripped off. Hehehe

We ended practice night worshiping the Lord Jesus with all our voices, our hearts and our spirits.

Tender Loving Care

Hi all!

I was with my wife yesterday at a shopping mall in Dagupan City. I was amazed at the similarities of the differences of customer care and products in the Philippines and Dubai.

We went to this American burger chain and ordered chicken and burgers… man, it is very small, i mean the serving is so small compared to the servings given back in Dubai.  And the bill went into the hundreds of pesos. Honestly I was dismayed.

We went to look for task lighting for our dining area at home, and we found a very classic, very nice decorated drop light… it suited my taste. But voila! it had defects on it although it went past the 1000 peso mark. I still bought it.

We also went shopping (or tried to) for shoes, at a favorite boutique, I saw a fairly-priced pair of sneakers, tried it, liked it… it was comfortable. But hey, I was told that the price tag on the display shoe is lower than the actual pair i am about to purchase… Why? Apparently, the saleslady told me that I was out-of-luck (as if I believe in it) because of a single letter difference between the 2 stocks. We ended up leaving the place more dismayed and empty-handed.

Before going back home, we had dinner at an all-Pinoy (chinoy really) burger chain and ordered burger with TLC (Tomato-Lettuce-Cheese) I was asked to wait for 5 minutes after which I was given a burger with… TL… where’s the C??? I chanced to see the supervisor and told her about it, in no time, she replaced it with a new one… with double TLC… Tomato-Lettuce-Cheese and Tender Loving Care.

Looking at the bright side of things, back in Dubai, the food servings are huge and the quality is almost impeccable, but how they treat customers is no match for the Pinoy’s treatment to their customers. This very thing compliments what is lacking in our product quality. It is a source of satisfaction for me.  Tender Loving Care.

Be proud Pinoy!

God bless everyone!

Technology reach

Hi all!

Am here now in the Philippines, with my family. Spent the past hours entertaining some guests. I’ll be going to Jollibee later this afternoon and will take my daughter for a snack with her friends. Its so good to be a father and a husband.

Thank God I have this opportunity once again.

Technology indeed bridges gaps. We don’t miss each other much because of all these video calls, chats, etc.

Thank God again for this wonderful blessing.

God bless you all!

Mabuhay!!!

MABUHAY!

Hi all! I’m back in the Philippines for my 1 month annual vacation.

I’m staying right now at the Mabuhay Manor  a few meters away from the airport. It’s a little past 2AM now and here I am still… BLOGGING!!! Anyways, I’ll be travelling by bus later today up north to Pangasinan province to be with my wifey and kids and spend our much needed time together.

Thank God for every favor He’s been showering me every step of the way from Dubai to Hong Kong to the Philippines.

Love You Lord!
