Space Edsa: Live closer, live better for as low as P4,200 a month

Admit it, the horrendous traffic situation in Metro Manila is sucking the life out of us. It kills our productivity, ruins our schedules, affects our wellness. The struggle is worse for those among us living in far-flung areas.

Imagine if we live close by.

There’s a new and modern dormitory along Edsa that offers a huge respite from that pain. Space Edsa, centrally-located along EDSA Highway Hills, Mandaluyong, provides a convenient location one can call a home in the heart of the busy Metro. Space Edsa has all the modern amenities that a typical millennial (or even a gen x and a baby boomer) needs — a strong wifi connectivity, gym facilities, a common living area with multiple sockets for charging laptops and other gadgets, kitchen amenities, clean bathrooms, among others.

Space Edsa is perfect for young professionals and students who work and study in Mandaluyong and nearby cities.  It could very well be a smart option to go home to, to avoid the long commute every single day.  The convenience could far outweigh the cost of living in a dormitory, or better yet, it could even be more economical.

Spending an average of 4 hours on the road everyday to get to one’s destination is a nightmare.

If you are one of the many people who brave the throngs of MRT and LRT commuters everyday, and who fight with cab drivers who refuse to take you to your destination because of the distance and heavy traffic, you might want to give Space Edsa a try — safe, clean, with wifi and cable, gym and all the basic amenities to support your modern lifestyle.

Time To Heal, Philippines…Change Is Coming Really Soon!

This year’s Presidential Election produced probably the most number of political analysts in most of us. I’ve seen friends and relatives unfriend each other on Social Media, fought tooth and nail to campaign for their respective candidates, got caught in the middle of heated political discussions online and offline. All those brouhaha for everyone’s fiery and diverse stands on the country’s political platform and personalities.

The people have spoken. Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is now the country’s presumptive President. Maybe we should all go back to being normal (meaning not the political analysts we have come to be over the past months or weeks)?

Despite our differences in political opinion, we’re all but one nation.

The die is cast. People, apparently, clamor for change. I say we can’t change as a nation if we rely everything on our President to fix this country.  The last time I checked, Duterte doesn’t have a magic wand.

May we all be instruments of the change we crave for, starting with ourselves. Stop the hate, stop the bashing, stop the trolling. Change is at hand.

May this also be the start of the country’s insurgents to put down their arms and go back being allies of the government. Afterall, we’re all Filipinos. Why are we fighting?

Digong, Duterte, Philippine President

Digong, Duterte, Philippine President

I have to say Senator Grace Poe won my admiration and trust when she made the first move in conceding to Duterte. In a country where conceding is not “uso” because politicians are almost expected to cry foul for being cheated, I admired Poe for her actions.

On the side note, the Vice Presidency race is still clouded with doubts, following the allegations of Sen. Bongbong Marcos’ camp that the VP votes may have been rigged.

Let’s wait and see how this politicalserye will unfold in the next days, months, or years.

But for now, allow me to bask in optimism. I’m full of hope and excitement for a brand new and better Philippines.

Let’s heal our land.

Change is coming this PH Halalan 2016

This Monday, May 9, let’s go out and vote. The political game is getting dirtier and the only way we could help this country is by getting ourselves well-informed about the candidates — who are real public servants, who are paid attack dogs, who have the heart to listen to our plights, who are only good at branding, who are the most competent and trustworthy leaders based on track record instead of promises?

Just a few days before the elections and Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s opponents are spewing nastier smear campaigns against him…and it’s a pain to watch especially if you know they’re all baseless accusations.  Amid all the cheating rumors hounding this election, I still want to believe that change is coming.

Yes, change starts within us BUT reforms in government start with our leaders.

Kahit gaano ka pa kabait as an ordinary citizen, may magagawa ka ba if people in power continue to turn a blind eye on you, rob you, abuse you, leave you with nothing but graft and corruption that’s embedded in our system?

Our economy looks good on paper pero ramdam kaya ito ng mga gutom nating farmers na pinagbabaril sa Kidapawan at ikinulong pa pagkatapos? Ramdam kaya ito ng ating mga kababayang walang makitang permanenteng trabaho dahil sa job-skills mismatch na di gaanong natututukan? Ramdam kaya ito ng ating mga kababayan na nangangailangan ng basic social services especially in far-flung areas but our government chose to underspend para may savings? Ramdam kaya ito ng ating mga kababayang walang tahanan sa sariling bayan? Ng mga hina-harass at displaced na mga katutubo sa Mindanao dahil sa mining at iba pa?

“For what good will progress be if its benefits do not trickle down to the poorest of the poor? Let us bear in mind that the test of good government is not whether we can add more to the abundance of those who have much, but whether we can provide for those who have so little.” – ‪#‎Duterte‬

Sorry but whenever I see those goody-two-shoes branding of some candidates, it’s as if I’m watching the “Emperor With No Clothes.” Some media networks and personalities can twist facts to ruin #Duterte and make his opponents look spotlessly clean and decent, an epitome of an ideal presidentiable…but they can’t force me to say the emperor’s clothes are awesome, when he’s not even wearing one.‪#‎DuterteSOLID‬ ‪#‎ChangeIsComing‬
