“Deep Woods”

June 30th, 2006 No comments
This poem was made for the person responsible for the fulfillment of my blog...


Tracing my way back in a dark, deep woods;
I planned to paint my thoughts through words
Yet there's no board, nor pencil, nor brush,
But I have to write my thoughts in rush.
Thinking deep, I closed my eyes,
I embraced myself trying to fought the cold;
When I opened my eyes, you're by my side
My hands, now are warm due to your hold.
From different sides, strangers met
We share our thoughts, time and beliefs;
We trace our way back in the light
With each other's help we made it right!
How would I thank you, I just don't know
I thank you more than you ever knew,
I make this poem to exaggerate...
My thanks for my BLOG that you made!
Salamat sir Dune!

Doing more with less

June 29th, 2006 No comments
IT WAS heartening to see Naga's underrated Geographic Information System (GIS) take centerstage, courtesy of a new blog called Metro Manila Philippines Makeover. Dedicated to exploiting Google Earth resources to "dream up a better Philippines...and all things possible in the virtual," the site is jointly being built up by Washington, D.C.-based Urbano dela Cruz and Bangkok-based Roby Alampay.

Three of the newer posts here, here and here are all about Naga's GIS efforts, "by far the most advanced application of Google Earth by a Philippine LGU that we've seen so far," says Roby. And we're not even in high-res maps yet (unlike the lucky ones described here), as the Google Earth satellite seems to have gone off target by a few kilometers when it shot its high-res images in Camarines Sur.

This singular development has sparked renewed interest in GIS among local techies, evidenced by the discussion thread on Google Earth's expanded Philippine coverage in the Naga community forum which has dominated the Community Forum sidebar in the city website for two days now. It is bringing together Senen Ebio, Naga's former EDP head who's now Makati-based; Nick Motos, our original GIS guy who, like me, left for a private sector stint but has since come back to handle the i-Serve project; and the EDP people represented by Dune Padre and Jessie Natividad.

Aside from the bragging rights, it will also serve my personal and professional ends. Early this month, I was assigned to spend time with the City Planning and Development Office to help update the city's development and land use plans. CPDO is actually my home agency when I joined the city in 1992. It is therefore a 14-year journey that has come full circle.:)

HELLO GARCI, HELLO HOLY FATHER

Kun minsan mapangirit ka na sana sa mga bagay-bagay na nangyayari sa presenteng administrasyon. Alagad dai nangangahulugan na an pagngirit senyal nin kaogmahan o nin karahayan nin boot.

AN EBANGHELYO SA LITERATURANG BIKOL

Dakul pa an angat sa mga kontemporaryong parasurat Bikol. Dakul pa an angat kisa sa mga obrang naisurat ninda. Alagad may magayon na nangyayari na sa satuyang literatura.

High

June 27th, 2006 No comments
Here’s an alternative song from The Speaks that I’ve been humming for a while.

Read on…and perhaps, sing it? Yey!





HIGH by The Speaks




Whenever you’re with me

Im trying so hard to find sweet serenity

Im still afraid

Just close your eyes and dream

Feel it fade away

Time won’t flow

Everyone knows

When the pain fades away

Dreams wont die

Tears in our eyes

You got to hold your hand up high

Ye…yey

Hold your hand up high




Just take it sometime

Doubt give enough will

To change your state of mind

Just try to understand

It’s not so hard to see

That i am just a man




Time won’t flow

Everyone knows

When the pain fades away

Dreams wont die

Tears in our eyes

You got to hold your hand up high

Ye…yey

Hold your hand up high




Whenever you’re with me

Im trying so hard to find sweet serenity

Just try to understand

It’s not so hard to see

That i am just a man




Time won’t flow

Everyone knows

When the pain fades away

Dreams wont die

Tears in our eyes

You got to hold your hand up high

Ye…yey

Hold your hand up high
