Happiest Birthday to my Beautiful Wife!


I remember ever since I was 4 years old, I already knew that this girl would be my wife. Her face, her eyes, her looks, her personality, everything... Of course, I didn't know her name yet back then as she was yet to be born. But, I'm definitely sure that it was her in my visions.
So when I first met her in person and she was introduced to me, I immediately told my friend... That's my wife! And so it began...
She's the only person that I know who looks even younger as she age. I'm sure everyone who knows her would agree. Believe it or not, she even gets mistaken as my daughter or Dom's sister. Hahaha
To my wife, my daughter, my best friend, my soulmate, my Empress, my Leo the leader...
❤️ HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY! ❤️

Congw. Ching Plaza as Department of Tourism Secretary?


Mindanaoan Congw. Ching Plaza from Butuan is very much qualified for the position of Department of Tourism Secretary.

She was the house committee chairperson for Tourism in the 8th, 9th and 10th congress. Her experience and drive would bring our country's tourism to new heights.

She is also a Brigadier General of the Philippine Air Force Reserve and a Doctor of Philosophy in Peace and Security Administration, Public Administration, Ecclesiastical Law and Humanities.

PDP-LABAN Vice President for Mindanao...

She is an achiever who would also be a great female addition to the envisioned gender-sensitive cabinet of President-Elect Rodrigo Duterte.

Read the Philippine Daily Inquirer article of Cris Panganiban for more information and let us know what you think...

People's Freedom Wall for President Duterte

Photo Credit: Friends of Rody Duterte



President Rodrigo Duterte is not God, but he could grant many (not all) of our prayers. He is not a Genie but he could make many (not all) of our wishes come true. He is not a mind reader either, so it is best to let him know about our prayers and wishes.

But, keep in mind that he is also not a magician who could make things appear out of thin air. So, don't expect to get everything your way. President Duterte now has a mandate given to him by over 16million Filipinos. This gives him the power to make things happen when his predecessors just dreamed of or talked about them.

He is a man of action that needs no further proof. He is decisive but with compassion. He is not a politician but a public servant. He is also not a hero but an ordinary man with extraordinary achievements.

"I don't care if I burn in hell for as long as the people I serve live in paradise." -RRD

This is the People's Freedom Wall for President Duterte. We cannot force him to read all of your comments everyday while he runs a country but we will definitely do our best to let him read once in a while.

Feel FREE to write any constructive comments, suggestions and criticisms! But keep in mind before writing that complaining without suggesting a better alternative is called whining.

Seda Hotel Centrio joins our Soap for Hope™ Livelihood Project



Thank so much to Seda Hotel Centrio represented by Mr. Noel Barrameda - Hotel Manager for joining our Soap for Hope™ Livelihood Project at Barangay 17.

Thank you also to my lovely wife, Michelle, for donating and distributing slippers to 80 happy kids at Barangay 17, Cagayan de Oro City.

Soap for Hope™ Livelihood Project is a trademark jointly undertaken by www.ElmerFrancisco.org and Sealed Air / Diversey Corporation represented by my good friend, Mr. Stefan Phang. We had been doing this project in multiple locations with different beneficiaries for quite some time now, 5 years if I'm not mistaken. Thank you so much Stefan for the all out support. I really admire your energy, brother!

Protection of children and their welfare is a cause very close to our hearts. Actually, even our livelihood projects were born out of our aim to protect children in a sense that their parents would have means to support them and would not even think of selling them to human traffickers which is very rampant in some ASEAN countires. Moreover, Soap for Hope and Linens for Life projects also help save our environment as we recycle soaps and linens from partner hotels that would otherwise end-up in dump sites or clog our drainage systems.
