INFORMED. (being knowledgeable and educated). Awhile ago, we watched the State of the Nation Address by Jessica Soho in GMA News TV Channel 11 from 9pm to 10pm. One of the segment during the airing was Ms. Kara David's Pasalubong (a Tagalog word which literally means "something meant for you when you welcome me back" and can be any gift or souvenir brought for family, loved ones, or friends after being away for a period of time or any gift given by someone arriving from a distant place). I learned that bringing Pasalubong is one of the most distinctive and widely practiced Filipino traditions of which I embraced. I now have more than a hundred of stuffed toys from different countries, tee-shirts, caps, knick knacks, postcards, bills and coins as Pasalubong so I was interviewed and featured as stuffed toy collector in this segment!

What she said about having so many "to-do" list and trying hard everyday to check off the list hit so close to home! I agree with her that what I need is a list to help me be who I want to be, both for myself and others.Click on START BEING Monday Series to see other list of cool virtues we could emulate!
