About Me

My photo
I am a Bicolano by birth and choice. By any standards, I am a slow runner but I like it that way. I look at running as a healthy and exciting way to make a difference. Together with my fellow runners from our family, school, office and the community, we use running to give back..

I have not been able to join races the past few weeks but I am happy to note that my fellow First Balfour runners have been at it these cool weekends of Christmas.

2013 BDM 58-KM TEST RUN: San Fernando to Capas



At 2:23 am this December 23 morning, I texted  Bob Castilla, Ernie Badong and Ruben “Fards” Fajardo inquiring about the test run.   

WE SHARE BECAUSE WE CARE



For a handful of  homilies already in the Aguinaldo masses starting December  16 ,  our parish priest Fr. Joelan Landerio has been using these words to encourage parishioners to participate  in the  Christmas activities of the Ascension of Our Lord Parish  in Paranaque City, many of which are for helping  the developing and depressed areas in the community.

SCMS: ANG PAGMUMULAT NI BITOY



“Pagmumulat” is a Filipino word for awakening. It is also the name of an annual drama festival that ran for 6 years at the Ateneo de Naga way back in the 1980s during our high school years.

ROGUE: THE ART ISSUE (November 2012)



The gift I received from blogger friend WJ for the BP blog anniversary rekindled my interest in the visual arts (http://www.bicolanopenguin.blogspot.com/2012/11/a-gift-on-1st-anniversary- of-bicolano.html#more).

MARATHONS R US



Not 1 but 2.  This is the number of full marys that our swash buckling runners of the Ateneo de Naga HS Batch 1983 conquered this December 2, 2012. And the reach of the 83neans is all over the region in this marathon of marathons.

IT’S TIME TO BOND



Last Wednesday, November 28, I was blessed to have enjoyed a break. This was really welcome after weeks of stress, due to a smorgasbord of meetings and presentations at work.
