In the past decade, a significant increase has been observed with the number of motorcycles in the Philippines particularly in Metro Manila and surrounding provinces. Anyone is entitled to his/her transportation mode preference but I just find this phenomenon a bit annoying. My issue really is with the majority of the population of scooter riders. They drive around sporting their Scorpion helmets thinking they are Evel Knievel, forgetting that they don’t have the proper bikes for daredevil stuff. They weave in and out of traffic in places considered blind spots by car drivers. This vehicle technology is intrinsically dangerous as it is, why do riders have to tempt fate with unsafe behavior. As it is said, a motorcycle accident is a major accident. I’ve had friends and family dead or maimed because of this vehicle so I appeal to anyone with the right mind to stay away from motorbikes particularly stay from it. As Einstein said, “to keep doing the same thing and expect a different result is insanity”.
This weekend, I flew out to inspect my late Dad’s fishpond in Roxas City. I flew in on Sat and stayed with my Dad’s 1st cousin Tita Kame Legaspi and her husband Tito Boy. I am very grateful for their hosting me in their home. The following day, I met up with my Mom, some of her family friends as well as a long time family friend helping us in our time of need. We went to the fishpond to take a look around. The property is ~30ha fishpond, ~70ha mountain and ~3ha island. For now the plan is to sell fishpond, retain the island while plans for the mountain are still open.
Looking at the property makes me think of how I can steward this wealth properly. This is not just about a dxr12 or the latest bmw. This about an inheritance passed on from generation to generation. At the back of my mind, I know that the Lord will call me to account for what I did to this resources that He entrusted to my family. Lord I ask for wisdom to steward this well and may I be found faithful with this task.
Updated my theme again and this time it’s more on the soft side. Don’t know if I’m missing the slider but I’m still liking it anyway. Let’s give it a few more days. 🙂
“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it…”

A year ago, my Dad transitioned into eternity. I am grateful to have received a legacy of honor from him. It remains a wonder for me that this man who once sought cigars for less to be distributed at my arrival has departed. Thank you Lord for dad.
