Bud Bongao as seen from the sea in late afternoon I am not a morning person, and it sometimes feels like a curse, one that I hope is reversed someday; but for now, I must contend with all accompanying discomforts like the scourge of early flights. At the end of January, I had a trip to Cotabato City. To be at the check-in counter on time, I got up and ready earlier in the morning. After two hours on the plane, I arrived in Cotabato before noon. It was thus a long morning bringing a long month to a close. Cotabato was just a transit point. The following day I took an even earlier flight to acc ..read more

The following snippets are from the second leg of the journey after Tawi-Tawi. All of these stories are derived from daily letters to my spouse, Catherine, chronicling this unforgettable experience.

Manny Maceda (Source: bain.com) There is a story in Wikipedia on Manny Maceda that he clarified and expanded on during this interview. It goes like this: While Maceda was at MIT Sloan for his master’s degree, he invited Jack Welch, the CEO of General Electric Company at the time, to come and speak at the school. Welch accepted, to Maceda’s surprise. During Welch’s speech, a man wearing a hazmat suit with a gas mask ran into the auditorium and threw a canister, smoke billowing, on the stage. Everyone stood up and stepped back, including Welch, unsure what to expect. Maceda, however, quickly pi ..read more

Vic Corpus, an Officer and a Very Gentle Man (1945–2024)

Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Victor Corpus at different phases of his military service The following is my recollection of events, some of which transpired 38 years ago, aided by Google. Until I met Victor Corpus after the EDSA Revolution in 1986, I imagined him to be a swashbuckling figure, a soldier turned rebel who fought against the excesses of the Marcos regime. In a picture I saw of him standing with the emaciated Ninoy Aquino and a very thin Bernabe Buscayno (aka Kumander Dante) at their trial before a military court, he looked fit – matipuno – like the soldier he once was. But when I finally met ..read more

Team C & C While Roman Emperor Diocletian and friends were giving Christians grief, China was a functioning meritocracy, albeit one that favored men over women. Aside from gender, Chinese could rise through a demanding examination system that was more akin to the Foreign Service Officer Test than other Western tests. Knowledge was the key to advancement with no need of a formal constitution aka guidelines with a gun clause. History is relentless like water. Eventually, roofs and dikes leak, shingles crack, and fake islands flood. China’s current government is just a WWII-related pimple wa ..read more

Filipino nurses were at the very front of the fight against Covid 19 during the 2020-2023 global pandemic. “Think of the number of Filipino nurses who lost their lives during the pandemic, because they were being pushed out to care for people with Covid early on,” said Dr. Peter Preziosi, President and CEO, Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools International. CGFNS is the world’s largest educational assessment and credential evaluation organization for foreign nurses.
