Yes, that’s me right there. That bald guy in the background. We were included in the feature cover of our company’s internal newsletter. This was around summer last year, after we volunteered to do some community work, i.e. re-painting classrooms right before classes start.

I readily volunteered when our company’s Employee Welfare Committee announced the activity, and sought for willing set of hands. This was because I like volunteer works a lot. It is always a good feeling to know that you have in a way helped improve the lives of other people.

Activities like this remind me of our village back in the province. When I was younger people in our village always have this Sunday morning routine that we call “bayanihan“. Initiated by none other than my parents, we involve ourselves in activities that help clean up our neighborhood, beautify it through planting, de-clog waterways, help other neighbors in moving/fixing their homes, et cetera. ย And I missed “bayanihan” a lot.

That’s why whenever opportunities like this come, just like this one, I always volunteer if my schedule permits. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, I missed this. I wish I could volunteer again in other community service activities. But with my current schedule (juggling work and school), I doubt that would soon. *sigh*

About lonewulf

I am a self-confessed 'jologs', a country boy who now works in the big city. I studied Applied Math, and am now completing Finance while working as a risk analyst. I feel extremely happy whenever I dance, draw/sketch, and write. I also like to read books, eat (not fruits, or vegetables), sleep, and travel. Update (12/2017) - I have already completed my Finance Masters in Diliman, plus Financial Engineering in Korea. I came back to Manila just last year from the Land of the Morning Calm, and is now currently working as a Risk Manager for a multinational financial institution. I am now updating this information box in the hopes that I will get my groove back into writing. I kinda missed it. And I actually have tons and tons of adventures that I have not logged in here. Hope to catch up to what's happening in my life. Here's to hoping for more adventures, and having enough time and energy to share all of them in this online realm. Cheers!
