Ganoon pa man ang mga pula at batikos ay siyang magtutulak sa akin upang magpatuloy sa lahat ng mga hakbanging tungo sa ikabubuti ng buong Barangay at ang mga papuri naman ay magiging inspirasyon sa aming paglilingkod.

Poor system memory

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

I’m sad to have purchased a mini laptop a few months ago. Aside from a now damaged LCD, its system memory is too low. So far so good since my husband bought an 8 gigabyte memory card to add up and upgrade its memory.I had learned a lesson not to be an impulsive buyer and now I’m saving for a new laptop with a higher memory and get the best value for my money.

An interesting tag

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Can't miss this very first tag I got from Claire, a fellow Christian blogger from Malaysia who I wanted to meet personally. I will surely not miss this chance if plans push through before the end of the year.

Here are the rules:

1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you can't go into your closet and pull out your favorite purse! We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.

2. List how much it cost. And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, we’d love to hear it.

3. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your bag.

The bag I recently carried - an LV Papillion. Thanks to my Girl Ghen who do the task of transferring my daily loads from one bag to another.

Photobucket

I had it bought from HK a few months back by my daughter Rhea during one of her trips with friends at $1,000.00 thinking I'll get a big big discount there but got it for a little less than LV Manila price. The above bag's photo was poorly taken. So, here's a better shot filed in my photobucket.

Photobucket

Inside any bag I carry are these stuffs - 2 cellphones for Smart & Sun, various keys, the Chairman's I.D., Two-way powder foundation, cheek and lip tint, camera, reading glasses, comb, wet tissues, pens and my century old C wallet.

I'm passing this on to Cuz Girlie , Jean Jesse ghee Francine Shiela Bingkee Pinayhekmi Jet evi

Happy birthday friend!


I met Tonyboy and Anna Aquino in the middle of last year at the church we previously attend. They were newbie members then. Because we both belong in the political and community service - he being a former Congressman of Tarlac from the famous and well respected Aquino clan whose father is the older brother of Ninoy Aquino, we shared the same interests. We became much closer then when we both transferred to our new church, The Next Generation International Christian Church where we work in the Outreach Ministry dedicated to serving and discipling less fortunate fellowmen in different communities sharing our blessings through feedings and gift giving and most of all sharing the word of God.

Last Friday, his wife Anna hosted a surprise birthday party for the Golden Boy held at the 34th floor of the Petron Mega Towers in Makati City with our church family and close friends from the political and military world. It was a night of fun music and brotherhood.

Here’s wishing you strenght, good health and continuous faith and service to the Lord.

Budget, on its way!

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

The Barangay Council of 885 is so happy that our 2009 Annual Budget will be released in a week or two. I just want to share a little information on how it goes and where the funds come from.

You see, a Barangay has a budget generated out of the shares from revenues and taxes that it accumulates depending upon its class and/or other factors like the number of business and commercial establishments it has around, responsible taxpayers within, number of constituents or population wise, depressed or not and so on.

If the amount has been determined and deposited by the City Treasurer’s Office of Manila to our accredited Bank we then wait for it to be approved in a regular session of the City Council of Manila. In this session, each Barangay Chairman whose scheduled budget is ready to be approved or in layman’s term “eh pupukpukin na” are called and required to witness the session.

After then we (through our Appropriation Committee are required an appropriation and allocation of these fund based on percentages on projects and the expenses where said funds will go until the Budget Office releases it and will be withdrawn by the Barangay Chairman and the Treasurer in our designated Bank. It doesn’t end here because it needs to be liquidated if the funds were spent on the allocated projects and has to be submitted to the Commission on Audit for file. Lots of paper works needed here so most Barangays hire the services of Contractors tor stipulated fees to ease the load of work.

This is the scene at the session hall I witnessed last Thursday. The Presiding Officer is Vice Mayor of Manila, Isko Moreno. In the center tables are the City Councilors in attendance while the Barangay Chairmen were seated in the gallery surrounding the session hall.

Better safe than sorry

Monday, March 9, 2009

Oh! This is just what we need at home and specially around the neighbourhood. With the fast rate of increase in crimes and robbery which may be attributed to poverty and recession, bad elements are just around the corner preying around innocent victims. Installation of a safety equipment at home or in the office is a must to prevent unlikely events which may lead to great loss of properties and lives in the gravest sense. Personally speaking, I will not have second thoughts on spending a few dollars in exchange for my family’s safety. Don’t you think so?

Council Bonding of Barangay 885

Tuesday, March 3, 2009



One of the jitters I initially had when I assumed my post as Barangay Chairman was the question of how I can have a smooth and harmonious relationship among my Council members. The Council is composed of the SK Chairman, 7 Councilmen/women, a Secretary and a Treasurer (11 in all). Fine because I had the consensus to choose my Secretary and Treasurer but of course on certain grounds, well at least. The SK (Youth) Chairman and 2 Kagawads who were elected were all under my ticket plus my chosen Secretary and Treasurer so I was assured that 5 of them will not go opposite side, but what about the 5? Well then I had some problems when I was just starting but due to the openness in communication that I laid down, so far, everything’s been going on smoothly. I also encourage some bonding time with them just like two Saturdays ago when we had a great time of camaraderie at Tagaytay City. Here are some photos to show. The shirts were courtesy of the Chairman.

Which diet pill works?

Everyone is in search of diet pill that works among the ones offered in the market today. This sounds vague to me since there are lots of them being recommended and advertised in the net, clinics, print ads, television stations and other media forms. One has to be extra careful when opting to find the best diet pill. Be sure they are safe and effective. Good luck then!
