Juan time: Philippine standard time

It did not get much mileage but the sometime in the past the Philippines launched Juan Time, a campaign to promote the value of being on time, the direct opposite of the penchant to be late we commonly call Filipino time. The campaign involved the setting up of an online reference for the correct Philippine Standard Time (PST) meant to encourage Filipinos to value time more and to be punctual. To this day, the online service remains to be the most authoritative reference of the correct Philippine time. You may check it at kidlat.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/ourtime.shtml.

The will to blog again

The year 2012 was an eventful year for me. Still, there were many things that I completely failed to do and one of them is blogging. Funny but my last post in this blog, Pinoy Seminars, was in early 2012. I remember I was planning to revive my blogs then at the start of the year. Fail.

Early this year I listed around 20 to dos in 2013 and again blogging is one of them. I had modest success in the past, getting traffic here of people wanting to improve themselves through seminars and trainings in the Philippines, and I did earn a few checks from blog ads. I resolve to regain that.  Expect to see not only Pinoy Seminars but also Bol-anon alive again.
