FREE 2019 VBS Materials Coming Soon

You support your own kids and community welfare when you support VBS materials’ maker and VBS event organizers. Vacation Bible School for kids literally change communities where they are held.  Below is my free offer:

  1. In “Tagalog” (or Filipino language)
  2. In English

2019 Pinoy VBS Cover (Tagalog)

2019 Pinoy VBS Cover (English)

  1. Teacher’s Manual (fold-able pamphlet)
  2. Student/Attendee Activity (fold-able pamphlet)
  3. Organizer Manual (fold-able pamphlet)
  4. VBS Graduation printable reference (fold-able pamphlet)

Note:  I did not put everything in the manuals so that the organizers and teachers can incorporate their own ideas and creativity.

The main goal of this materials is to reach-out to as many churches as possible, especially those that has the heart for kids ministries and VBS but has only little funds.  I am leveling the playing field for them.  I am doing this since 2011 and at the moment the requesting Churches already reached 130+ and still counting (it increase every year).  I started on this endeavor when my wife  was first diagnosed with breast cancer.  I am used to supporting my support ministry from my own earning.  But recently , the burden is getting heavier and as times passed by, I am already need assistance especially now that we already have a daughter and my personal tool is already dilapidated (my printer broke because I also print and donate materials for our Church Sunday School, and simultaneously used it for work purposes, laptop is showing signs of dilapidation, I pay bills related to electric and internet consumption, etc.).  Hope someone out there will donate ample amount to improve my facility as I am doing this as non-profit.

I am giving it for free via email (downloadable). I am aiming to come-up with apps base so those who could not afford to print the manuals, can still use it to organize, to train teachers/volunteers and to forward the lessons to volunteers with access to smart phones (paper less curriculum).

Most requests are from Christian Churches with less or no funds at all.  A number are from missionaries in remote areas and some were even from other countries.

Reasons Your Church Should Host a Vacation Bible School

  1. There is an obvious positive impact on kids
  2. Positive effect on Volunteers and Organizers
  3. Impact in the local church
  4. Impact on the community beneficial to nation building

Freelance Architectural Design

Around January of 2018 when a former co-employee approached me.  To cut the long story short, I was offered a freelance architectural design design job… I accepted.  It took me some time to finish because the requesting party change his mind on some details in many instances.  perspective drawing

Now it is halfway finish and I saw how my drawing slowly but surely turned into reality.  I did not just satisfy my client, I also satisfy the building permit approving city officer.  I guess my background in advertising design and corporate engineering became very useful because my design was obviously more clear and detailed compare to what other licensed architects are doing,  And having a teachable attitude somehow help me improve my woI rk.

title block

I did all the Title Block inclusive of structural, electrical, plumbing and sanitary plan.  And it did not end there.  It pass through evaluation, approval and fees to be paid.  Below photos shows that the drawing became a reality.  Believe it or not, I was even ask to report daily for months for the construction and supplies supervision.

Incidentally, I got the attention of the Engineer owner.  He gave me two more projects that I am both finishing at the moment.  It is supposedly finish already but the owner has change his directions on the plan so revisions are done once in a while.

I am willing to accept freelance drafting work if there is an opportunity.  I just need the basic instruction and needed data.  Rest assured it will be less costly.  I can be reached through my email:  mamita.offer@gmail.com

Floor Plan – my latest project

I just did a “Title Block” for a client (floor plan for 5 units, 2 floors per unit).  If there is another break or similar job offer, why not?  fyi.  I have consultant Civil Engineers.

 

Why buy Philippine Cavendish Banana

I could not forget the feedback I got from one of my importers when they move to other countries because of price difference.  I was told that the end buyers themselves are complaining when he did that due to obvious reason ….

Banana Peel

 “bananas from other exporting countries doesn’t taste good as Philippine bananas.”  It’s a fact and you can compare it yourself.  The genuine Class A Philippine Cavendish Bananas taste naturally sweet and delicious to the last bite.  And it is a healthy food for your body.  But yes, it should be genuine Class A because scammers and cheaters are everywhere so you should deal only with reputable exporters and traders.

My importers through he could earn more when he bought from other countries because they offer cheaper.  He learned his lesson from actual experience as he end up in losses.

Cavendish Banana Plantation in Davao region Philippines alone is as far as the eye can see.  One week is not enough to tour and inspect the plantation area as it is actually bigger than a small country like Singapore.  It is so huge and you need a trustworthy contact to lead you where are the safe pest-free source and who are the unreliable.  The plantation is farther than what your eye can see as it reaches to other region and provinces (e.g. Cotabato, General Santos, Bukidnon, other provinces of Mindanao).   But the center of the center is Davao.

Our Prototocol” and Basic Checklist:

Quality of Fruits Inside OutPremium Quality Green fresh Cavendish Bananas from pre-surveyed safe pest free plantation source

…only one way left to go, and that’s up!

“You know what’s great about hitting rock bottom? There’s only one way left to go, and that’s up!”  -Buster Moon (Sing movie)

Philippine Cavendish Banana is already known for its distinctive deliciously sweet taste in comparable to its competitor nations.  Cavendsih BananaThat is what makes it a favorite among buyers.  Cavendish Banana is one of the Philippine’s best agricultural products, second only to coconut oil. The Philippines is the second largest banana exporter in the world, making the banana industry a consistent top dollar earner having shared 15-18 percent of the total top 10 agricultural exports revenue.   But trend change recently due a number of natural and man made calamity:

  • Effects of climate change
  • Typhoon and flooding
  • Price war
  • Spread of plant diseases
  • Previous market crises in China and Iran
  • The recent El Niño phenomenon and its drought effect
  • Lack of government subsidy
  • others

The problem is severe and one need not be a rocket scientist to figure what is going on. Sadly, the ones widely affected are not just the entrepreneurs and capitalist but the laborers who are earning hand to mouth.  These are the packing house workers, the container loaders, drivers, quality inspectors, porters and so on and so forth.   Come to think of it, these common workers have babies that needs milk and diapers, and has a family that has basic needs, plus an elderly parent who needs maintenance medicines to survive.  This industry employs 503,058 people receiving an estimated 44 billion Philippine Pesos in annual wages.  More than three million individuals are dependent on the banana export industry and it also helps mold the future of two million children in Mindanao Philippines.   But how can it sustain its support to the nation if the industry is facing with difficulties in finding ways to lower operation cost thus offer lower price competitively?

There are not much buyers recently for small and medium banana traders and exporters, as such, many are not earning enough for their families.  It is as simple as that.  The main factors are the higher operation cost and fluctuating farm gate price.

Operation Monitor‘Don’t let fear stop you from doing the thing you love.’   -Buster Moon (Sing movie)

Life must go on.  We and our families also suffered from the setbacks but cannot stop now as being in this business is not always for profit.  We have purpose why we are here. Although we seek solution to resolve major issues, we also welcome support and donations for the benefit of those who are hardly hit — the hand to mouth earning workers and their families.  Every time you see Cavendish bananas on your supermarket or at market place, it did not just came there that easy.  We are literally exhausting sweat and blood as we are squeezed by importers and quarantine inspectors to perform and produce high standards.  Quality costs  Nonetheless, fear of not earning enough should not cripple us from doing the things we love.

Since 2007, this business has facilitated deliveries of Cavendish Bananas and other agricultural products to these nations:  China, Vladivostok Russia, Bulgaria, Iran, Egypt, Singapore, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Dubai.  If you can donate or wish to collaborate in supporting the industry especially the hardly affected, please do so.  You can email at sembawangtrading.co@gmail.com for details.

Rice Wholesale-Retail Trading BizPlan

 

I again did a Rice Wholesale-Retail Business Plan per request of a Cavitena  (Filipina).  It’s not a “pwede na yan” or copy-paste thing as I immersed, researched a lot and did actual field interviews. Most of the request came from OFW as they can use it to loan capital at OWA.

I can now provide a more detailed and updated Rice Wholesale-Retail Business Plan

Like what I did for other requesting party, I made it as realistic as possible and tailored made, reader friendly and you can already start with your business as there are step by step guide and pricing.

If you are going to pursue your desired business, I need to ask where are you base and where do you intend to establish your Rice Trading business? 

I ask because the location is important.  Price also fluctuates regularly.

Most who earlier requested are OFW as they are using it to acquire loan at OWA.  I also receive request from Foreigners.  Are you an OFW?  

My Business Plan are far different  from works of other maker (“tumbok mo agad through a step by step guide how to start right away.  Kita mod din agad ang expenses and income as I did field research and actual operation study).  I also visited miller suppliers plan and study variety sample as shown photos.

I won’t pretend to know it all but I have more than enough experience for your requirement.

Other requests in the past are are as follows:

  • Moringa Cultivation and Processing Feasibility and Business Plan
  • Cavendish Banana Farming and Export Potential
  • Software and Hardware Development
