Things I Offer

For those interested, please feel free to email me at

As a background of what services I offer, here is my background:
I am a part-time Certified Public Accountant, trying hard Programmer, skilled Accounting System implementor, wannabe operations consultant, trainor of several Accounting Packages and finally, a devoted computer addict.

My ambition in life is to become a Full-time Father and a husband.

On my Own

Yah right..I guess this is it. i am now officially..unemployed! Nope, I am not one of those people who got laid off because of the global financial crisis. I just realized that there are many ways to help the company and myself reach our own goals.

Companies need to be very efficient these days or will be costly. Of course, the same applies to every employee. Well, not being defensive..Im not saying that I am not efficient..I think? I was exposed to different kinds of work and experiences that I feel its not being productive anymore. Although I know what I want and love to do for the rest of my life, I was never been given the chance to do so 100%. Of course, it is very understandable. Every employee should look after the welfare of the company they are working for. Conflicts do exist of course..and that makes the employee-employer relationship "colorful". But in the end, it is always for the companies welfare, as a matter of fact in the first place, thats the main reason why people are employed. So no more question.

But why leave now? Well, there are several reasons. First of all, there is an opportunity to start my own. Second, I just realized, if not now..when? And third..why not now when there is an opportunity?

Regarding financial crisis, well, everybody think that its not a good time to start. But for me, it is the best time to start! And why? Hehe..because companies at these times cannot afford to hire someone like me.

To give or not to give?

My family had our Sunday routine of going to church and spend the day for God. Unlike the previous Sundays where we used to go to the basilica, we went to another church. Unlike the basilica, the church was not that full packed. And so the mass went on. Before the last prayer, some announcements were made including the need for a second collection for a certain improvement of the church. My wife was hesitant because she rather give donation if the intention was for charity. She had this conclusion because before we went inside the church, she saw many beggars and street children.

After the mass, again, we had our little debate. Should we or should we not give?

Her argument was, the church, government and people should give more to those unfortunate and not spend almost all on infrastructures.

Mine was, I think the government, church and people do their best already, its just that some "unfortunates" chose to be "unfortunate".

Im very hesitant to give to mendicants because of a bad experience. I gave a beggar my last coin coz its all i have in my pocket. Maybe she was not satisfied of the amount, she threw the coin in my face. It was whole-heartedly given eventhough the amount was not that big so I was very upset. From that day on, I decided to never give to mendicants instead, only to charity institutions. I also learned that some unfortunates who were relocated and given shelter and basic needs went out of the shelters to return back to the streets and went back to begging.

What seems to be the problem? Well, I think its just a matter of choice. We chose to work hard and earn, and they chose to sleep in the streets and beg. In the end, stopping mendicancy is a very long process. It does not only involve knowing the source of the problem and the solution, it also needs understanding of what comes in between the "SOURCE" and "SOLUTION".

Vague? Im talking of the inbetween letters.. UR and U. What you are is your choice.

World's oldest joke traced back to 1900 BC

The world's oldest recorded joke has been traced back to 1900 BC and suggests that toilet humor was as popular with the ancients as it is today.

It is a saying of the Sumerians, who lived in what is now southern Iraq and goes: "Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband's lap."

It heads the world's oldest top 10 joke list published by the University of Wolverhampton on Thursday.
A 1600 BC gag about a pharaoh, said to be King Snofru, comes second -- "How do you entertain a bored pharaoh? You sail a boatload of young women dressed only in fishing nets down the Nile and urge the pharaoh to go catch a fish."

The oldest British joke dates back to the 10th Century and reveals the bawdy face of the Anglo-Saxons -- "What hangs at a man's thigh and wants to poke the hole that it's often poked before? Answer: A key."

"Jokes have varied over the years, with some taking the question and answer format while others are witty proverbs or riddles," said the report's writer Dr Paul McDonald, senior lecturer at the university.

"What they all share however, is a willingness to deal with taboos and a degree of rebellion. Modern puns, Essex girl jokes and toilet humor can all be traced back to the very earliest jokes identified in this research."

The study was commissioned by television channel Dave. The top 10 oldest jokes can be viewed at

Bittersweet memories

These days, I just had some sleepless nights. Some "malayo ang tingin" moments and what-ifs these days. Not because I'm into some high school type love affair or what, I'm just being hounded by what some call "bittersweet memories". Memories that made you happy in the past but unfortunately, are the same memories that make you very sad or lonely if remembered today. It's quite ironic that in the past, when these memories were the present, you cherish every moment of it. But today, you do all your best not to remember a bit of it coz it will not only waste so much tearjerky moments but also its useless (or useful..saves me from heart attack!).
To sum it up, we needed these memories anyway, it make our lives..bitter and sweet!

Right or Wrong?

I just had a small debate with a "friend" about how do we know what is right or wrong. He told me that as long as we don't break the law, then it's right. Well thats ok, but then I asked, how do we know that the law we are to obey are righteous in the first place when laws are created by men himself? And men, in the first place again, are like me, confused of how to identify whats right or wrong in the first place again (and again). Confusing? Well yes..and so ironically, that is why we have erase the existence of..confusion. I think.
(Actually, after our debate, we got more confused.)

I just had a drink of this famous softdrink brand which boast of being a sugar-free soda and ahhh! And then a minute later I received an SMS from my sister warning me not to drink the "I just bottomed-up soda coz it contains a sort of cancer-causing chemical".
Was I scared? Not at all...why? Well, I think everything now that we eat, smell, touch, hear or what contains cancer-causing chemicals or whatever.. as what the chain SMS or spam emails told us so far. I was amazed reading these emails and SMS that I suddenly felt that the only THING that doesn't contain cancer-causing substance is...NOTHING!
One thing is for sure though, we are all gonna perish, but how and when is never for sure.
