If tomorrow never comes, vlogs and more...

In July 2022, following my departure from Sutherland, I delved into the realm of entertainment. Eager to explore acting, I enrolled in a basic workshop held in Makati City by a notable production company.

Fortunate to secure a role in the BL series "If Tomorrow Never Comes," produced by DCTV Production in San Rita, Pampanga, I dedicated my weekends to filming, ensuring captivating stories for our predominantly international audience.

By August 2022, I immersed myself in another month-long project under A S Production, where I assumed a leading role in one of their productions.

Subsequently, I became a member of KSMBPI, a Social Media house in Quezon City, until an unexpected incident during a show on November 30, 2022, prompted my departure.

In December 2022, I ventured into the world of vlogs and shorts on Facebook with Papatiks Entertainment. Although initially offered a two-year contract, it was abruptly terminated for undisclosed reasons. My advice to aspiring showbiz enthusiasts: hone your craft through rigorous acting workshops and remain vigilant against potential scams.

Recruiter officially

Today, this will be the day where I am officially onboarding for a new role as a recruitment officer where I will be using Spanish language as the main communication method. I will be assisting clients and companies on their applications like I did for over two years in the education campaign in the year 2017.

Using Spanish language other than English will not only double but triple your earnings here in the Philippines. So if you know how to speak Spanish or any other international language, make darn sure to use it for your advantage. That advantage is officially starts today for my career.

A session of learning in 2018

In case you're new to this, here are some tips to help you learn Spanish:

Immerse yourself: Try to immerse yourself in the Spanish language as much as possible. This could mean speaking Spanish with native speakers, watching Spanish TV shows and movies, or reading Spanish books.

Practice regularly: Make a habit of practicing Spanish regularly, such as speaking with a tutor or language exchange partner, or completing online exercises.

Use language learning apps: Take advantage of language learning apps and software, such as Duolingo, Babbel, or Rosetta Stone.

Learn vocabulary and grammar: Focus on learning the most common vocabulary words and grammar structures first, then build upon that foundation.

Practice speaking: Find opportunities to practice speaking Spanish, such as joining a language club or speaking with native Spanish speakers.

Stay motivated: Set goals for yourself and track your progress, and reward yourself for accomplishments along the way.

Learn about the culture: Understanding Spanish culture and customs can also enhance your language learning experience.

Be patient: Learning a new language takes time, so be patient and don't get discouraged.

The above tips apply to other languages as well like French, Arabic, Russian, etc. By following these tips and practicing regularly, you can improve your language skills and achieve your language learning goals. If you like, you can send me a message so I can help you as well.

It's 38 years since...

First of all, thanks be to God for reaching this 38th years of life on Earth. With the instrumentality of my loving parents, I was born in Ilagan, Isabela. It is now a city that's around 400 kilometers north of capital city of Manila. I am really grateful to reach this age and with God's permission, more years to come and go.

Second, I wish to earn more money because that's the only thing that I don't have much. I could help family members and the community I belong to more than the usual I can. This is in support of realizing our dreams and inspiration. I can also realize my personal dream of having my own house in Baras, Rizal as it now is being constructed that I got from pre-selling since year 2019.

Third, I always wanted to continue and finish my degree in Mass Communication while working in call center. God-willing, by age 40, I am already a degree holder or later than that. I want to be part of the mainstream media industry someday here in the Philippines.

I am 37

I am now officially 37 years old in this planet Earth. Last March 12th, I also officially turned 18 years old in the Church of God in the Bible. Since today is my 37th birthday, I will try to turn off my phone for 24 hours and check tomorrow's notification regarding any birthday greetings / messages and others.

Early this year on my Facebook page, I setup a birthday invitation already so I could get as many greetings as possible. So I will be expecting some friends for their greetings but I never require to come and celebrate my birthday.

My achievements so far are to keep studying my Psychology Diploma and finish it as soon as possible. Continue to keep a healthy lifestyle and be financially-ready for any possible out of the country travel again! 👍

Today, I turn thirty-five years old of existence since birth. At one hand, it is an age that I cannot believe I have already reached. Few years ago, 35 was just light years away. Still the feeling of being young incredibly lives on. Being on adulthood, with privileges and benefits, feel like still fresh!

As I reflect, I remember the day when I heard the Christian doctrine being broadcast over local radio station in Tuguegarao City. It was Ang Dating Daan, I heard the voice of Bro. Eli Soriano who preaches the truth in the Bible. That was year 2000 when I was in fourth year high school. Eventually I was baptized in March 12, 2002.

Ten years ago, I was closer to 30s, now I'm getting close to 40s which seem a lot of blessings from God. It's a blessing because I still exist under His mercy and guidance. I can confidently say that it is one of the best years of life, if not the best. Here are a few highlights and things I have learned.

Now that I am 35, I have decided to stay where I should be.

Living in Manila

I have been living here in Metro Manila since July, 2015. My first job was a field researcher for more than a year until December 2016. Thanks for EB Research Service Corporation for the chance to visit places in Luzon islands from Cagayan province down to Iriga City.

Then the year 2017 pave the way for my career in BPO, my first company was West Contact Services, Inc. which is headquartered in Maka City for almost six months. I had the chance to meet the 24 fellow call center agent, figuratively call center virgins because most of use were first timers working in a call center company.

My current company, which I cannot disclose for now, is located in Ortigas Center, Pasig City as my second job as a call center agent. And I am earning five-digits salary. I was able to get a housing loan with the help of God through this company.

Future Goals

With my futures goals are to finish my studies in mass communication someday, and to get a master's degree in library science. Hoping to land a job at a famous government library someday in the Philippines or elsewhere. With God's help and permission.

To my beautiful person

I know you're broken deep within,
Your heart is filled with painful things—
Of betrayal, imperfections, and sorrows
Of lies, broken promises, and missed occasions

You traversed the road of childhood's loneliness,
Of teenage years’ hardships and first love and kisses,
All those years you have been strong and you still are,
Your heart is made of steel but year-round warm

Your mind bleeds with uncertainties
Over thinking of so much little things,
You’re afraid that one day you’d lose everything
And the chances you should now be taking

I know how much you are longing for someone
To love you the way you can give love to a loved one,
Without hesitations, excuses, and reservation
But will all of heart, spirit, and mind’s affection

Reach your dreams and goals with burning passion
For I know God will grant what you’re praying for
Just have faith, perseverance, and determination
But will of all heart, spirit, and mind's affection

So go on now my beautiful person,
Reach your dreams and goals with burning passion
For I know God will grant what you are praying for
Just have faith, perseverance, and determination.

Delay your anger

"It does not pay to say too much when you are mad enough to choke.
"For the word that stings the deepest is the word that is never spoke.
"Let the other fellow wrangle till the storm has blown away.
"Then he'll do a heap of thinking about the things you didn't say."

More fruits to come!

The First week of August, 2011, I accidentally started on fruits diet. I eat pineapples, mangoes and bananas. I eat them of course with intervals for better digestion. With the help of dietitians, I have practice eating fruits with no other combination as usually people do.

Mango fruit is richin pre-biotic dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and poly-phenolic flavonoid antioxidant compounds. While pineapple contains vitamins A, B1, Ccalcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, natrium, potassium, dextrose, sukrosa (sugar cane) and bromelain is used to make the meat tender, with the set of cancer growth, prevent platelet aggregation, and have activities fibrinolitik . It also has asid sitrik the expression to eliminate fat and thin body. Gynecology fiber can be easier defecate on people with constipation (constipation). The leaves contain calsium oksalat and pectic Substances. But pineapples has no direct connection with pine and apple.

Bananas contains good amount of soluble dietary fiber (7% of DRA per 100 g) that helps normal bowel movements; thereby reducing constipation problems.

Still finding for a new job

The joy of job hunting is fun! You have to wait for you to be interviewed. That's coupled with patience and a lot of patience. And it's fun to work back to home.

Until the night I received a message telling me to come for interview. Atlast, the hard work of putting a great resume generated interview! And that's an achievement.

All of this came from advice from the book: Perfect CV. It tell you everything you need to know how to create yours perfectly. So grab a copy guys and get something to read and learn which we have never learned from schools out there.

Good luck. Send me a note if you have a copy.

It's normal

While some of your behavior is quite normal.... Other things you do are downright strange. You've got a little of your freak going on. But you mostly keep your weirdness to yourself.
