Balanga eyes P500-M scholarship fund

BALANGA CITY, Bataan — In another laudable step towards boosting its education program for the poor, Mayor Joet S. Garcia has revealed that his administration will raise P500-million for the Balanga City University Foundation.

The new revelation on scholarship program of Mayor Garcia drew applause from the jampacked Lou-is restaurant where the employees of the provincial capitol were celebrating their Christmas program.

This is the first time an education program for poor but deserving students was launched in Balanga and comes at a time when tuition fees and other school expenditures are rising uncontrollably.

An information technology expert and former professor before joining local politics, Garcia pointed out that they will target to raise the P500 million in the next five years even as he appealed to Good Samaritans, business sectors and other individuals to help them raise the amount for the sake of the poor students of Bataan.

The young mayor is a son of Gov. Enrique “Tet” Garcia and younger brother of Bataan 2nd district Rep. Abet S. Garcia who have expressed all-out support for the scholarship program.

So far, Mayor Garcia said Balanga spends at least P12-million yearly for its scholarship program while the provincial government and Representative Garcia also provide P72-million yearly for the program.

Under the scheme, Mayor Garcia pointed out the amount raised for the foundation and the scholarship program will be invested in a trust fund to enable it to earn more for the benefit of more scholars.

“We are expecting that the fund will earn more or less P50 million a year, then the amount borrowed from sponsors will in turn be also returned to them after 10 years,” said Mayor Garcia.

“Maraming generous individual at businessmen na gustong tumulong sa ating scholarship program dahil alam rin nila na para ito sa mga mahihirap na gustong mag-aral na bata,” said Garcia.

Mayor Garcia was also the architect for the successful establishment of the recently opened Galeria Victoria Mall, the biggest commercial establishment put up in Balanga.

The Mall was put up by businessman and construction magnate Jerry Acuzar, a native of this city, through the Public Private Partnership program of the government.

Mayor Garcia said the city spent nothing on the Mall but will earn millions of pesos in rentals.

Meanwhile, when Governor Enrique “Tet” Garcia started initiating various improvements and upgrading efforts in the once neglected Bataan General Hospital (BGH), critics started looking for loopholes in the initiatives.

However, this did not prevent Governor Garcia from pursuing the improvements of BGH in the interest of the public service.

“The problem with our political opponents is that every time I introduced upgrading and other forms of improvement in the BGH in our bid to further serve the patients, our critics will always hit us back simply because this (efforts of mine) will further add to our political stock while their (political foes) will also certainly wane,” said Garcia.

Garcia said he will continue to seek improvements for the BGH in the face of criticism to help the public, particularly badly sick patients.

During a recent meeting between the governor and the personnel of the government-owned BGH, it was agreed that the head of BGH, Dr. Ria Baltazar, is incorruptible and a determined worker when it comes to helping patients, but is severely hampered by the deeply divided politics of its employees.

BGH doctors, nurses, and office staff have all signified to work for unity and the interest of hospital patients and the general public..

“We have to wake up not for our own interest but for the public good,” Garcia told the personnel.

The governor’s remarks came after a doctor was accused of allegedly “pirating” patients here and forcibly bringing them to her own private hospital where she can charge them with exorbitant professional fees, among others.

“Sinasabi nila, politika lang daw pag may nagagawa tayong mabuti. Natural lalakas ang political stock natin, samantalang ang mga kalaban natin ay wala; nasasagasaan at insecured nga sila,” said Garcia whose speech was several times disrupted by applause from the personnel. (Mar T. Supnad)

Couple get laid! Lust or Last?

To witness this kind of scenario over the train is not new to me. Once again, just recently a new eye popping Filipino couple are kissing intimately onboard at SMRT. I was so pissed and being destructed to see people making out in public.

Ok let's give them a break! let say you can't take it anymore but where the heck on earth you can see such things that couple are doing this in public transport. OMG! Asan na ang sinasabing Maria Clara? I believe that they are not couple they are more likely to me a lovers! A lovers that has their own family wayback in the Philippines!

Come'n You are not teenager to do that intimacy in public! For god sake give yourself a damn face...

I have no idea what are on their mind, are they really in love with each other or it is just a leisure and lust!

I don't give any care to what this guys are doing but hello! There are CHILDREN or underage on board, be a role model pls!

It is not good to hear from other races na pinagtatawanan nila ang ibang Pinoy here in abroad, pero paano natin masisisi kung ganyan ang ipinapakita natin in public!

From the way i look at them, they are not couple! What's your POV guys.... wanna share some thoughts?

A walk to remember - Ang luma kong tsinelas

Malayo man daw ang marating, babalik at babalik ka rin!

Mahaba haba na rin ang serbisyo sa akin ng kasangga ko na to. More or less 3 years na rin nya akong hinatid sa mga destinasyon ng aking buhay.

Kahit sa huling sandali ng kanyang serbisyo sa akin sinigurado nya parin na makararating ako ng maayos sa aking pupuntahan. Mahaba habang biyahe ang aming nilakbay. Sakay, lakad, sakay at lakad yan ang aming naging routine sa tuwing kami'y magkasama.

Tandang tanda ko pa nung unang lumapat ang aking mga paa sa kanyang apakan at kahit medyo may kaluwagan ng kaunti naramdaman kong komportable ako sa kanyang lambot at tibay. Ilang bagyo na rin ang aming nalampasan, at ilang matinding takbuhan at lakaran na rin ang aming pinagdaanan.

Nanatiling matibay at matatag ang aking kasangga, kaya naman sa tuwing may pagkakataon hinahayaan ko lang syang magpahinga.

Salamat kasangga ko, sa tatlong taong paninilbihan bilang panlaban ko sa init ng lupa at basang lansangan. Sa bawat araw na suot kita sa aking mga paa alam kong ako'y nasa mabuting daan.

Ngayong ako'y iniwan mo na mananatili kang magandang alaala sa akin salamat sa matapat mong serbisyo sa akin.

Travelling back

After a 3 days overseas work in Malaysia, finally my bags are all packed and waiting for my flight to Singapore.

Taking a flight AK0715 of Air Asia your dear blogger will be seated at 15C respectively. A short journey will take me to Singapore with a positive result of my work. Within my stay in Malaysia i can say that there's a lot of new things that we need to learn from. And new experience and exposure will gives you an additional growth within our personality.

Working under the heat of the sun, i personally experience how difficult it is. Now i know that those people working in a construction site, laborer and work alike should not be judged according to their type of work.

I can say that my trip to Malaysia is such a good experience; not only for my personal working experience but the additional growth that it gives on my personality.

Dealing with other people is one of the most important thing that i learned. Not limited from communicating to those people that i don't even know their names up to speaking their local dialects just to get along with them.

One more important thing that i learned from that trip is additional confidence; A confidence that i acquired during my stay away from my homeland and working ground.

I can say that this is one of the memorable experience to me, not just because i learned a lot of new things but because this is the first time i work overseas alone.

I am going back to Singapore with a positive result and i am proud to say that my overseas trip is consider as a JOB WELL DONE!
