Docking to port June 30
« on: May 24, 2010, 01:18:38 am »

PROLOGUE

I will soon reach the port in a few days over a month from now. Port June 30 is where I will be disembarking from this ship on which I have been sailing for almost six years.

The journey has been exciting and challenging. Just as what sailors experienced, we went through calm seas and raging waves. Fair weather and stormy days. Our Captain steered the ship well. We stayed true as we manned our stations.

Port June 30 is where I get off. So, too, is our Captain who is taking a new assignment (actually he's going back to his old job which he labored on for nine years). A few of the crew will be getting off as well. "Tom Jones." That's what they call us. This play of words always brings a smile to our face. 

I decided to share, if my time permits, some of my daily grind before reaching port... the things I'm doing in the few remaining days as Provincial Administrator of Bohol.

To many of us, Port June 30 is not the destination. It's just a next stop as we gear up for the next leg of the journey.

MAY 23

We returned from an overnight stay at Balicasag Island. A time spent with family and friends. It was an extended celebration on Broccoli's 7th birthday and a treat for the staff in Lucille's campaign. Two days of snorkelling. Well, actually on the first day I stayed on the boat taking pictures. It was on Sunday that I dipped into the water and we snorkelled over the dive spot called "Cathedral", also within the Balicasag Island waters.

I will still be sporting this massive sunburn when I'll arrive in South Korea on Tuesday.

Attorns, are you gonna share the pictures you took in Balicasag Island?  I was able to visit Balicasag just one time for an overnight stay but it wasn't enough.  Pohon makapauli, I will surely go back there.

Time pa, are we allowed to make comments here though?  If not, I can delete my post. hehehe

Hi, grazie. Sure, I'd love to hear your comments. Please feel free to ineract. Okay, I'll be sharing some of the pictures as soon as they are uploaded.

Yes, balik jud sa Balicasag. Better yet, try scuba diving. I'm planning to do it myself someday soon.

Dear Mr. Laguna,

Glad to read your blog and am quite excited for you. I have never been to Balicasag at all, so I will be excited to see the pictures as well.

Warm regards.

May 25-27

Exposure to Korean culture: food--lots of vegetables, kimchi, and yes... raw sea cucumber, raw beef(!) and lots of ginseng drink. Early this morning, I had sauna the Korean way. I felt energized and my skin is having a tingling, fresh feeling.

More details on this in the days to come...

Some thoughts on our Korean trip
« Reply #10 on: May 29, 2010, 11:24:06 am »
Some thoughts on our Korea trip...

Korea harvests rice only once a year because of its season. Vegetables, which they grow in greenhouses,  play a major part on their diet.

Their drinking etiquette with liquor is instructive. The younger man (or a subordinate) when drinking with an older man (or his boss) most often pours the liquor into the glass to signify that he will be sober all throughout. And when he drinks, he turns away from the older man or boss as a sign of respect.

I'm not sure if this is really their culture but I also noticed that the person who pours the drink for the others does not pour the drink into his own glass. Instead, one of his buddies will pour the drink for him.

your journey must have been great, calm seas, raging waves, flowing waters, currents, tides high and low, siren calls and all.  may your next port of call be as replete with adventures as this one that you're saying fare thee well to.

bon voyage! :)

Torn, I have modified your above post. The picture did not appear because the URL did not contain a .jpg at the end.

This is the URL of the big picture you posted: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4045/4649735787_b9b3b4218a_b.jpg

You can get it when you click "All Sizes" on a flickr.com picture. Next, you choose the image size. Then hover your mouse on the image and make a right click.

Great pictures, Mr. Lagunay. How was your stay in South Korea when you were there?

In regards to your work, I am so very happy to see the eco-friendly initiatives that are happening in Bohol Island Province. I believe that with this continued direction, Bohol Island will be a leading example for the rest of the Philippines how to conduct future environmental-economic programs. Additionally, it is also interesting to read that there is open discussion on the governmental level on the feasibility of the Bohol-Cebu Bridge.

Thank You for sharing your thoughts with us here in Tubag Bohol Dot Com.

The pictures are awesome, if I may add.

Macky and Mike,

It was springtime when we went to Korea. The air was still a bit chilly. So, yeah. Panuhot juD kon mag barong. Also, the Koreans usually wear western business attire. I guess most Asian countries are wearing business suits in their day-to-day affairs.

Lorenzo,

It was a great experience on the food culture side, and interesting insights, albeit briefly, on how they conduct their election campaign. It was election time when we got there.

I bet you had a great time in Korea, Mr. Lagunay, I myself have always wanted to visit Korea. I trust you had fair share/sampling of their famous Kimchee and Kimbap. :)

That said, continue on doing a great job for Bohol Island Province. Pleasure to meet you here in Tubag Bohol Dot Com.

Korean election campaign
« Reply #32 on: June 02, 2010, 07:29:02 am »
More on my impressions while in Korea...

It was at the height of the election campaign for local officials when we visited South Korea. The candidates and their campaign staff are readily identifiable because they wear jackets (looks more like windbreakers) of their party color, i.e., yellow green, yellow, red, light blue. They had huge campaign posters on their headquarters, colored streamers on strategic location. And yes, they strictly adhere to common poster areas.

On the day we motored from Suncheon City to Yeosu Airport, we passed through a huge intersection in the heart of the city and there, along the side of the street, female campaign staff from the different political parties wearing their party jackets were dancing to the tune of the same music and chanting to vote for their candidates. Looks like a cheerdance simultaneous performed by different groups but without the tossing and acrobatics. I wonder if something like this can be possible in Philippine politics.

South Korean local officials who run for reelection have to resign two months before election day. Employees and officials of the local government made it a point not the be seen together with the candidates. Our local hosts from Goheung County had to excuse themselves and apologized that they cannot accompany us when we visited Mayor Park (who resigned to run for reelection as Mayor).

Mr. Lagunay,


Thank you for sharing that interesting cultural aspect of the Koreans. I could not help but link it to their Confucian Culture (something that they were introduced to by way of the Chinese Confucian Scholars, thousands of years ago), this sense of filial piety in action, and obeissance to popular demand is something that is quite intrinsic to East-Asian (namely Confucian societies; ergo. China, Japan, Korea and to an extent, Vietnam..)

The notion of honor seen in the Korean politicians and campaigners should be exported to the Philippines.

Question lang, is vote buying as prolific in Korea (or does it even exist at all?) as it does in the Philippines?

Thanks, Mr. Lagunay.

Mr. Lagunay,


Thank you for sharing that interesting cultural aspect of the Koreans. I could not help but link it to their Confucian Culture (something that they were introduced to by way of the Chinese Confucian Scholars, thousands of years ago), this sense of filial piety in action, and obeissance to popular demand is something that is quite intrinsic to East-Asian (namely Confucian societies; ergo. China, Japan, Korea and to an extent, Vietnam..)

Indeed Confucius was a great teacher and his influence is vast and deep.

Indeed Confucius was a great teacher and his influence is vast and deep.

Confucius wrote a treatise on The Necessity of Filial Piety for Dynamic Harmony. He expounds how it is necessary, this notion of filial piety, for the harmony of nature as well as in society.

"Just as the leaves and grass bow before the will of the Wind, so does the wind bow before the Will of Heaven whom sent it. So shall the children bow before their parents, the wife bows before the husband, the soldiers before the general, the lawmakers before the lawgiver, the ministers before the king, the king before the Emperor, and the Emperor before the Emperor of Heaven."

This notion of the mandate of Heaven was integral to Confucian societies, and was the essential factor for the blossoming of Confucianism and Honest Work Ethic and Honor that has retained in East Asian Societies.

The Philippine government and politicians can learn alot from them, and I believe that the inter-national exchanges between the Philippines and the Koreans in terms of economics, political discourse, and environmental initiatives is, definitely, a step forward.

Thank You, Mr. Lagunay, for representing Bohol and the Boholano people in your sojourn to Korea.

:)

The Governor as a shepherd

June 5

Our afternoon session in our term-end assessment and transition planning dealt on sharing our experiences as Department Heads under the administration of Gov. Aumentado.

In the days before I joined the Aumentado Administration, I was "working wounded" as a legal counsel of a defeated mayoralty candidate in the 2004 elections. I suffered through 3 sleepless nights at the city board of canvassers and then proceeded to the provincial board of canvassers where I was a member of the legal panel of the dominant majority party. The canvassing was hotly contested. Gov. Aumentado was running for his second term. His closest rival was former governor Rene Relampagos. 2004 was also a presidential election year and lawyers from Manila representing the late presidential candidate Fernando Poe succeeded to convince the provincial board of canvassers to suspend the canvassing on some legal issue. After arguing before the board that the canvassing should resume, the board relented and the winners were proclaimed.

My term as City Legal Officer ended on June 30, 2004. In August that year, Gov. Aumentado appointed me as Legal Officer IV. I preferred a position that is co-terminus with the appointing authority. Thus, when Atty. Tomas Abapo, Jr. was appointed as Provincial Administrator (vice Atty. Antonio Amora, Jr.), I accepted the appointment as Provincial Legal Officer.
