I quote what John Gottman, author of The Heart of Parenting says, "Men must allow themselves to be aware of their feelings so they can empathize with their children. Then they must take whatever steps necessary to make themselves available to their kids." In my case I am thousand miles away from my children - it is really hard to make myself available for them. However, I did it...

My obligations to my children has no boundaries

Twenty-five years ago, I got married. During those years, we're blessed with three lovely children. Now they are young ladies. Our eldest is 22 year old. Our second daughter is 20 year old and our youngest is 19 year old - who is now on her 3rd year accountancy.

During their early age - from their elementary, high school life and college days, my support is always there - not only for financial support but also to assist them with their school projects and other assignments. In spite, I am thousand miles away from them, if they needed my help for their school assignments - I am always available through Internet and mobile phones - one of the many reasons why I created my blog sites.

Year 2010, my 2nd daughter graduated from Computer Science Course

Three months before her graduation, her English teacher gave her an assignment to write a short speech for Vice President Candidate plus another two questions that a Vice President Candidate should answer if his countrymen would ask him/her during his/her speech. That would be her project and if she failed to submit she could not graduate according to her teacher.

After she received her assignments, she sent them to me immediately through email said, "Papa I need your help. Please write a short speech for vice president candidate. Also include these two questions: What kind of advocacy you want to proclaim to prevent the poverty in this country? and How would you balance federal foundation for transportation and road construction?"

Reading those questions was really a headache - I am not the one to graduate...but I cannot said no to my daughter. I have no choice but to comply her request. So, I started surfing the Internet, encyclopedias and other reading materials for information about the topics.

A short speech of a vice president candidate

Thank you so much for the trust that you have trusted to me. Thank you for this opportunity to work with you as we raise the truthful reform. Thank you for the privilege that you have entrusted me of joining in the fight for a clean, honesty, integrity and trustworthy in public service, and for a government that puts first the people’s interest.

From the bottom of my heart, I accepted the challenge to achieve the true reform of good governance of this country. But this fight is not just about me. It is about our collective thirst and hungry for change.

My friends, this is going to be a tough battle. My opponents will use all forces in order to win. They have been there for so long and continuing robbing us. Now with your help, we should stop them. Let's stay hand in hand in this field of battle.

What kind of advocacy you want to proclaim to prevent the poverty in this country

My Advocacy: The Filipinos should adapt the correct attitude.

Executives from rich countries who communicate with their counterparts in poor countries show that there is no significant intellectual difference. Race or skin colors are also not important: immigrants labeled lazy in their countries of origin are the productive power in rich European countries.

What is the difference then? The difference is the attitude of the people, framed along the years by the education and the culture and flawed tradition. The behaviors of the people in rich and developed countries are greatly followed the following principles in their lives such as:

  • Ethics, as a basic principle.
  • Integrity.
  • Responsibility.
  • Respect for the laws & rules.
  • Respect for the rights of other citizens.
  • Work loving.
  • Strive for savings & investment.
  • Will of super action.
  • Punctuality.
  • And of course...Discipline

Philippines is not poor because we lack natural resources or because nature was cruel to us. In fact, we are supposedly rich in natural resources. We are poor because we lack the correct attitude. We lack the will to comply with and teach these functional principles of rich and developed societies.

We are the most abusive to the environment - Illegal Logging, dynamite and cyanide fishing, hunting and poaching of birds and wildlife. We throw garbage everywhere.

How would you balance federal foundation for transportation and road construction

I believed that building roads in rural areas promotes development through improved access to markets; health and educational facilities; the generation of alternative income sources; and better information flows.

My assumption being that the supply of transport services, such as freight and passenger movement, would naturally follow new road construction.

In the Philippines with a tradition of building roads with Portland cement concrete, here is now a considerable network of ageing roads needing rehabilitation. The traditional method of treating these roads is to neglect them until the ride becomes severely impaired and then to break out the old concrete and replace them with new.

I would request the Philippine Department of Highways to improve this situation by addressing the problem of concrete quality, using indigenous materials, and investigating alternative methods of rehabilitation.

But what is of more vitally important – I would coordinate directly to the national budget commission and request them to see to it that before releasing the funds for this project, there should be complete planning and specifications of materials and all the supposedly incurred expenses should have a corresponding transparency of expenses records available for the public.

My hard works were compensated to receive my daughter's reply

It took me three days to finish the project for my daughter. After I done it, immediately I sent it off to my daughter. And in two days, I received her reply said, "I love you papa. It was approved. Now I will graduate. Thank you so much. Muaaaaaaaa...!" My hard works were compensated to receive my daughter's reply.

It is so hard to see our sweet children go off and spread their wings. We want it, we work for them to do so and yet, it leaves you with a huge hole in our hearts. Then out of the blue, they call on you and you are once again needed. I am so happy you and your daughter had this one little assignment to finish, together. My friend, you have a lovely family, keep those photos of the family coming. As always, thank you for sharing.:)
