For the past several years, I’ve always read the Philippine Star, mostly on Saturdays and Sundays.  It’s one of my favorite weekend reads.  Either I catch the news online or buy a copy from our neighborhood pan de sal vendor who is enterprising enough to supply newspapers everyday to his pan de sal suki. The funny thing is, I seldom start the day reading the headlines, sometimes they can get quite depressing so I skip the pages and go to my favorites, the Lifestyle Section where I always look for Lucy’s articles  on Love Lucy every Sunday and Barbara Gonzales’ Second Wind every Saturday.  Features Section comes next and before I’m through with the editorial pages, I turn to the Business Section and scan the closing prices of stocks, and look for my favorite articles by Francis  J. Kong, Business Matters ( Beyond the Bottom Line).  Take note, there is always that  J in his name.

Francis J. Kong – a noted writer, author, broadcaster, motivational and inspirational speaker.  Check this out, http://franciskong.com/about/. I always look forward to his once-a-week guesting at Umagang Kay Ganda, a regular morning show of ABS CBN. Last night, I wrote him a short note asking permission if I could link his site here and to my other blogs. I was surprised to find that he personally answers e-mails. Wow! it might be short but it made me admire him all the more.

By all means arlene,
I would be very honored.
