Something wrong again

Huh, huh, huh ... Just when I thought everything was already alright with, this is what I got when I tried to open my blog this morning.

So, I am back to blogger.

I felt consoled somehow when I got an email alert that Afrim has now updated its site. Want to know more about Mindanao development issues? Check it out.

Today, after attending the morning session of the City Council, I will head to the airport to catch the 1:15 p.m. flight to Manila. There I will attend the Conference on "Piloting Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) and the Use of Open Standards for e-governance Applications in Local Government Units."

The two-day meeting is sponsored by the Institute for Popular Democracy and the European Union.

I will present a report on the FOSS Barangay Business Information System which we introduced in three pilot barangays in Davao City.

Back to this blog

I can't log in at my blog at

So, starting today I will post in this blog. I would need to update this blog with all my sidebar features in my funchin blog. I hope to do this in the next few days.

I am currently working on my laptop at the City Council where our regular session is on-going. In today's calendar of business are 16 items under 1st reading, 3 items on 3rd reading, 61 deferred committee reports and 6 new committee reports.

At the City Hall, the Department of Health is presently undertaking a two-day orientation seminar on the Botika sa Barangay (Village Pharmacy), a project to make affordable medicines available at our villages. My office is coordinating with the DOH initially implementing this project in 20 barangays (villages) in the 1st district of the city.

Back to blogging

It's been a whole week since I last posted in my blog at funchain. My webhost is down so I need to activate this site in blogger.

I missed to post many activities, events and issues.

My blog's first year anniversary is coming fast. I am excited to prove to the whole world that my attempt at blogging is no fluke or fad. I am still being referred in the Philippine blogosphere as perhaps the most active if not the only elected official blogging in the country.

Quite an accolade but I really am a failure than a success. Why? Because when I started blogging I vowed to promote it as a tool for participatory governance. Well, not many followed my lead. So, I am a big failure.

Anyway, this blog will turn 1 year old on March 9. For that I really feel happy. Yehey!
