I am really into current events. I donno but it’s really in my system, i always want to be involved in issues, documentaries and reports in TV. I love interviews especially interviews about people in the politics who are controversial, government officials and even simple people.
Last Saturday (dated 30/07/10) i watched Boy Abunda’s show which is The Bottomline. That show featured the works of PAG-ASA and how they fail about the weather forecasts and bulletins. Boy interviewed the former PAG-ASA chief Prisco Nilo. Nilo revealed that most of the pioneers of PAG-ASA are being pirate by other countries because of the issues of salary. But chief Nilo still stayed even he can earn bigger money abroad.
Here’s the scenario:
Boy Abunda: “Bakit hindi ka umalis at pumunta sa ibang bansa para magtrabaho?”
“E sinong maiiwan pag umalis ako?”
See that? he is so dedicated in his work, he doesn’t care about the money but to serve our country. It also shows that PAG-ASA is he’s life for over years now then everyone always blame PAG-ASA for wrong forecasts & bulletins. Come on filipino people, these are not their faults. It’s just that they dont have the proper equipments and machine that’s why they make mistakes. They need to be modernized, we have to understand that. Chief Nilo especially, i am sympathizing him cause of the dedication he have shown for PAG-ASA. His spirit is something we can’t deny and needed, so we should not laugh at PAG-ASa and say “Kelan ba tumama ang paga-asa?ahahahaha”. I also heared in the news that Nilo works 7 days a week and 24 hours a day in his past years of working. He doesn’t deserve that for he is such an example of dedication, love and passion for his work.
Last night i saw in the news that our President fired him and replaced a new PAG-ASA chief. Then there are no hustlers and pioneers in PAG-ASA as Nilo said in his interview. I think 3 out of 10 are the pioneers and the 7 people was pirate by other countries and the new 7 are under training and new bees. Still Nilo wants to work here in the Philippines in spite of being fired from his passion. He plans to work to another government office instead of earning big salaries abroad.
I salute you Mr. Prisco Nilo for being humble and showing that you are so-dedicated in your work, just like most our public teachers
Take notes: Wag ko lang malalaman na kurakot ka pala!
