My Presidential Bet

I'm really excited to vote on May 10. Despite the personal nightmare that the past election season was, i'm still seeing the possibility of this country's transformation.

After much thinking, surfing, watching and reading, i have finally decided on who to vote for President.

Gordon's history shows that he was a remarkable executive. We know about Subic's transformation, WOW Philippines' popularity and his stint at the Philippine Red Cross. He was also an active legislator. Notably, he was instrumental in this year's first ever fully automated elections, which at least minimizes the possibility of cheating. I see him as a passionate person. His one passion is to cheer his guts out in Ateneo basketball games and is very consistent at it. His motto is good governance.

But what i actually like about this man is his leadership. A good leader is someone who can get people to act, someone who can invite people to unite for a purpose and someone who can inspire us to at least care. Volunteerism. And this, i think, is what Filipinos need. It's the only way to get us out of this rut.

Open My Eyes

Isn't this a beautiful beautiful song?


Saviour of my soul
I worship You as God alone
Greater love has made a way to You

I could not forget
The moment I in faith confessed
For my sin You died and rose again

I believe every word You say
Father God with all my heart I sing

Open my eyes
I want to see Your glory Your glory Lord
I open my heart
I want to be closer closer to You

Here I am again
I find my strength in drawing near
You have heard the desperate cry in me

And as I wait on You my God
I’ll know the voice of truth
In quietness I am in awe
And as I worship You my Lord
I understand the cross
The sacrifice of God
