In my spare time I love to create DIY projects or chase the bliss of solitude, sipping a cup of nicely brewed coffee, munching some yummy cookies while reading a good book in a new place with a great view.

Whether we like it or not, P-Noy (that's how he wanted to be called) and V-Nay (goes well with PNoy, hehe)  will be the tandem that will lead this country in 6 years. Will PNoy deliver all his campaign promises and eradicate corruption and can VNay replicate his "accomplishments" in Makati and do the same to the entire country? Well, If they can do it then I really wish them well!

To PNoy, you will soon be inaugurated but even if you won by a big margin and 15.2 Million Filipinos voted for you, its also a fact that 20.9 Million Filipinos (me included)  didn't choose you as their president. But since you are now the President elect, it's only common sense that you start acting like the leader of these nation and work towards unity and healing rather than continue being divisive and act like you are just the leader of the yellow armies. Remember all of us taxpayers will be paying for your salary once you are in office. I would love to see you act and speak like a true statesman. A quality very much lacking from you that you have to learn soon and fast. I would also appreciate a more decisive persona who doesn't dilly dally on basic issues and knows what he wants and will not let his fate be dictated by Kris and her feng sui masters or Madame Auring. Having said that, I hope you stay away from your sister Kris or send her to a far flung country where she cant be of much influence to you to minimize the damage she can possibly bring into your administration.

And since you mentioned in your interviews that Nelson Mandela is the leader you look up to, it will only be fitting to remind you of Nelson Mandela's legacy of  true healing and reconciliation. Just take your cue from him and take this words of wisdom as your guidelines for governing. (I hope you also wont get irked easily receiving unsolicited advice like this ^^. We also mean well for your own good and for the good of all the Filipinos.)

“If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.” - Nelson Mandela

“As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself... Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty, but humility.” - Nelson Mandela

“As a leader... I have always endeavored to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a con-sensus of what I heard in the discussion. I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.” - Nelson Mandela
