Right now the country and the event’s organizers, in particular those in the MICE industry are consolidating their efforts in order to prepare for a better future and a better platform that will be offered to businessmen and international visitors.
I can feel the silent but excited gait of each and every member of the Philippine MICE industry, and I know that things will become big.
There is energy, a united energy to compete and win in the ASEAN region in terms of attracting events to be held inside the country.
I just hope and pray that the energy will be sustainable. If this happens I don’t see any reason that we will overtake Malaysia which is now the benchmark for running a successful MICE industry in the region.
Last time I saw him in the Makati Medical City he can barely speak. However, the humour is still there. But seeing him one can sense the he has a bigger battle inside him. A battle that even his jovial personality is being torn bit by bit.
I was given a chance to hold his hand in our visit to the hospital, him being one of my idols, higher ups in the Entrepreneurs Society of the Philippines; I said to myself he can still win the battle he has inside his body. I can feel it; the energy that allowed him to propel Center for Pop Music is very much present during that moment.
Months later, I and my wife sometimes unconsciously talk about him, and we are happy to know that the last time we have heard about him he was on his way to recovery.
Therefore, it was a bit of a shock that yesterday my wife received a text telling that he joined our Lord at about 2am.fur
It is a sad story to add to two sad stories that we have received last week about close people we know having lost their love ones, also joining our Lord.
Indeed, death is so common that even if we have accepted it we are still in shock and we still feel the pain of the lost that it inflicts upon us.
I lost an elder who talks to me like I am his kumpare. Every time we see each other we will crack jokes, both of us having that gift of spontaneity always come up of mundane things to laugh about. Humour indeed was his best gift that I enjoyed and bask at experiencing his gift every time I am given a chance.
But most importantly, as an entrepreneur he serves as an inspiration to me and my wife to spread our wings higher and further.
His legacy in bringing music training as a successful business is one for the books. Honestly, I do not know him that much. But for the time that we have been together he has touched my heart. For that, I will always be eternally thankful.
S’ Butch Albaraccin from where you are I know that the Master has now assigned you to be one of the master trainers in making heaven an even more musical and entertaining place to be in.
|The first Tree500 Movement tree planting activity in Barangay Calawis, |
Marikina Watershed, Antipolo City
I was zapping my remote control for T.V. at a frantic pace when I stumble with Disney Channel showing WALL-E, I watched it in the cinema with my family and watched it in DVD and yet here I am glued in the T.V. screen watching the movie for the 3rd time.
Why? You see I cannot help but fall in love with the love story of WALL-E and EVE. It is a relaxing love story. Second and most importantly, the story is about humans stranded in the outer space because the Earth is not liveable anymore.
In the story, humans have become lazy and fat because they have forgotten how to use their limbs resulting to atrophy of sorts. Also, humans are controlled by a supercomputer that is programmed to prevent them from going back to Earth.
I like the scene where the plant in a can is the key for the spaceship to be programmed back to Earth. It shows how important are plants and trees in our world. It shows how plants and trees is the most effective measure that Earth is liveable. The plants and trees disappearing spell humanity’s end. I know we all don’t want this to happen.
So having enjoyed WALL-E allow me to invite you to the second run of Tree500 Movement’s Tree Planting Activity this coming October 23,2010 at Barangay Calawis, Marikina Watershed, Antipolo City.
Tree500 Movement is an organization that aims to plant a minimum of 500 trees in every tree planting activity it conducts. It is also a tree planting activity that has a line-up of interesting activities other than tree planting (e.g. nature awareness orientation).
Right now, the focus of the movement is to increase bamboo tree in all riverbeds of the Marikina Watershed. Most especially, near the bridges of the communities residing around the watershed. It is said that bamboo trees are the most effective deterrent to soil erosion. Also, when it grows its roots spread as far as six meters and, since it is identified as related to grass, a single bamboo tree can produce many sub trunks forming a bigger and wider bamboo tree in its mature age.
I know I have said too much but I can’t help my excitement because the first tree planting activity was just last month and here we are again.

Now it comes to pass, the long wait to have a grab of the last book that is the Mocking Jay – the last book in the trilogy of Suzanne Collins.
Lucky me without knowing it that the book launching was ongoing at Bestseller Robinson Ortigas, it is a real treat – a fan like me being one of the first to have a hand in this wonderful and much awaited book.
The story is so fast and furious that before I knew it I have finished reading it. This is how good and engaging the story is.
Once you are immersed in the world of Panem there is no going back. You become one of the district 13 wanting to topple the Capitol and energize every time you hear or see the Mockingjay (Katniss Everdeen) forwarding your dream for freedom.
This is the power of symbol at work. In the story the media as the medium for showing and spreading the message of the Mockingjay is what sticks to mind. It shows the power of communication and how to make it attached to the viewers and listeners. It shows how to create a lasting change once a group has identified a rallying point to a certain cause.
Creating a perception – a winning perception compared to its distant reality, this is what catapulted district 13 to victory.
In our present day, advertising and many forms of media dominate our perception of reality. Understanding that it is not reality is very important. Having a critical mind will help in determining this.
Indeed, finishing the book is one memorable event for me as it reinforces some of the thinking I have with media, communication and perception.
It is hitting two birds in one stone; you are entertained and educated at the same time.
I hope that the author has other brilliant plots and stories under her sleeves for she is a great writer to have.
