Lagalag... No Permanent Address

Few days ago, I am again in the midst of explaining to new friends and colleagues in the development work my life's history... from where am I... etc etc... the usual kumustahan and sharing of life's stories and advocacies.

And I recalled....

I was born in General Santos City. ...studied primary, secondary and tertiary education in this "Wellspring of Winners" (I like this slogan very much.. I wanted to belong... in my dreams). ..had the chance to work on research, community development,  and administration also first in this city..

I transferred to Sarangani and brought with me my parents when I joined the Governor's Office team of peace and development workers for the province... (love so much the experience in peace work)... while replicating peace and development advocacy in GenSan through volunteer work...

Two years later, I moved to South Cotabato and find my specific peace work contribution through human security (economic development more specifically). I am now with rural enterprise development with the trade and industry department. And finally marry Roxan. I brought my parents with me... now they are residing in Polomolok....

I was born with no permanent address... my parents didn't own even a home lot in GenSan. Now, it's a challenge for me to find my own final place to live.... and devote my whole life to helping developing that place... Maybe its Koronadal... may be it's not.... Next year 2012, I have to decide....

The counting of decision starts now....

or else.. i will continue to be Lagalag.. No permanent address..
