    Hi Manany Chozene. Thanks for the questions. I’ll try to answer them as honestly as I can.


    HI Rod, (cute si chozene hehehe or acute) salamat for the honorable mention. I enjoyed reading your book of life….quite interesting…..clever smart….///thanks.
    In our lifetime measurement is very important (words numbers has a major rule in building the world) How much does a woman or a man need in order to build a happy marriage or healthy marriage?///Hmmm….let’s see
    Woman: (how much)
    Love-dakol. my wife lets me know if I forget. I don’t get a pass from her.
    kindness-all the time or all hell breaks lose.
    patience-I did not stay married if I didn’t have patience. There were lots of frustrating times when we first started.
    understanding-She calls me UNDERstanding with emphasis on UNDER(as in DE SAYA). Lolz
    wisdom from above-I have to get wisdom from above or I would have been insane by now.
    wisdom from the earth-I stop and smell the roses whenever I can.
    Sex-If she ran out of alibis perhaps I get lucky.LOLZ
    Money-I don’t even know what money looks like since I got married. Paminsan minsan ako’y nangungupit. He-he-he.
    Time-She spends her free time cleaning the house or exercising her right arm at the casino slots. Ako naman ay sa GB kaya it all evens out.
    Children-we are in consensus as far as our childrens welfare and future are concerned.
    Men (how much)///Aber daw
    Love-is just a four letter word. Minsan naghahanap ako at ang sagot ni Misis ay: “Ano ka, sinusuerte?” Lolz!
    Understanding-Sabi niya ay UNDERstanding daw ako. Kawawa naman ako!
    Patience-montik na akong maging PATIENT sa mental hospital noong nag-asawa ako.
    Wisdom from above-kung wala sigurong wisdom from aboveeh baka naging PATIENTna nga ako.
    Wisdom from the earth-gusto kong dinigin and wisdom from the earth pero hidi ko marinig. Marami siguro akong tutuli. Yuk!
    Sex-When Haleys comet appears and Jupiter aligns with Mars then and only then will I get lucky. Ano ba naman ito Dios por santo?
    Money-Sabi nya “My money is my money and your money is “MY MONEY”. Any questions? “Wala dear…wala”.Kaya ang taong nagigipit sa pitaka’y nangungupit.
    Time-I owe, I owe, so off to work I go. Then, wash dishes, clean the house, cook a little, tambay sa GB. mow the lawn, trim, weed, fertilize, feed my koi, feed the birds, wash cars, maintain cars, work on my projects. Igwa pa daw akong free time?
    Children-my prized possesion. Every meaningful thing that I’ve done in my life…I did it for my children.
    2. If children is the pride and joy of a parents; what is the pride and joy of the children?-Siguro ang mga parents man ninda.We try to be a role model toour children. Now that they’re grown up, they are now returning the favor by remembering us during our B-days and anniversaries. The Cards we receive from them reflects their profound gratitude for everything we’ve done for them. We cannot be happier.
    Happy New Year! 2009. Thanks!////Happy New Year din saimo Manay. May the New Year brings prosperity to you and your family. Mabalos!

    Thanks and regards////You’re welcome. Regards to your family as well.

    Thanks for the question Chebs. Iyo baga, partners in crime kaming duwa ni Ding. Pighahalat ko nganing magdigdi sa San Diego para tukduan akong mag Balroom Dancing. Si Art dae pa nagbubutwa ta garo busy man ngunyan na holiday season.


    Hahahay Manoy Rod partners in crime kamong duwa ni Manoy Ding pareho pilyo.
    *Babala*…ang ginagawa ng matanda wag gayahin ng mga bata! nyahahahahahha =)
    it took me few minutes of scattered concentration to frame some coherent question.I sifted through my questions for the most vital, and here’s what I came up with Manoy Rod.
    How did you meet your wife? Please share us your love story.////Where do I begin, to tell the story of how great a love can be? The sweet love story that is older than the sea. The simple truth about the love she brings to me. Where do I start?Teka muna, mukhang lyrics sa kanta ‘to ah.
    Chebs, I really don’t want to go into details about my love story. It is painful for me to even think about it. My wife was not my first choice.There is a woman somewhere in the Philippines that I owea deep apology tofor my misdeeds. I still love her after all these years and her memories are etched deep in my heart forever. Someday, I’ll make it a pointto ask for herforgiveness if it’s the last thing I have to do here on earth. I still keep her mementoes hidden somewhere to reminisce about our past. I just cannot let go or ratherdon’t want to let go. There are times in the midst of my solitude, I ask myself those “what if” questions?My eyes gets misty sometimes thinking about this love that should have been.My wife knowsit and she know my feelings for her but I reassured her she has nothing to fear. I’m devoted to her and most especially toour children.

    Anyhow, to answer your question, I met my wife through a mutual acquaintance here in San Diego. We were just casual friends, we go out to eat and disco dance and one thing led to another….I got her pregnant. I played with fire andgot burned. Namangka ako sa dalawang ilog ika nga. I thought about leaving her but my conscience won’t allow me to doso especiallywhen a child is now on the way. Istepped up to the plate and accepted my responsibility as a father to my unborn child. It was a tough transition.There were times when we’re having heated arguments thatI thought about just tossing my hands upin the air and say “the heck with this, lets separate anddon’t worry…I’ll provide for the kid”. The idea of going back to myfirst love was always an option. Somehow I stuck around.The thought of abandoning my daughter andturning my backon my responsibilities sickens me. In the end, we compromised, made adjustments,had 2 more children and managed to keep the family intact. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary last May. As luck would have it, my eldest daughter is the one closest to me of all my siblings. We were inseperable since day one. Love it.

    salamat po pala ta kyut man palan ako sa paningin mo Manoy. assuming you just had your recent eye check-up =)/// Siguro nga kailangani ko ng bagong salmin. Pero you’re still cute with or without my glasses. Peace kitang duwa.

    Its amazing what you can achieve if you try.

    pai caloy Super User

    been very busy with year end reports, kaya na miss ko logod su hotseat ni Noy Ding. muntik ng dae ko ini na hiling. bueno, Noy rod, hang on:1- what’s your passion like?///My passion is to provide my children a head start in life and to give them all the tools necessary to be able to compete and succeed in this world. I was born poor and I’ll do everything I can to make sure my children will not suffer the same fate as I have.
    2- in your travels, what country struck you most? and why?///Spain. The obviousis it is our mother country and theirinfluence has left an indelible mark in our landscape,in the way we think and act asfilipinos. I’ve visited the regions of Andalusia (home of the Flamenco dance), Extremadura (home of the Conquistadors), and Balearic Islands on my first visit. Ihave been to San Lucar de Barrameda, the port where Magellan and Columbus set sail for the New World and the Philippines. My eldest daughter went to school in Madrid 2 yrs ago and had a chance to tourthecity plus the cities of Toledo and Segovia. I bought a replica sword of El Cid (Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar) and it’s in my closet. I will tell you the significance of that name in our private conversation.
    – having been married for a long time, what does your loving wife wants to calm her (apart the privacy thing)?///I’ll take her to the casino and she’ll be alright. Lol. Actually, my wifeis not high maintenance (thank God) so simple pleasures in life would suffice. We go out to eat once in awhile, drop a few coins in the casino, go shopping and that pretty much it. One thing she likes to buy is shoes, shoes and more shoes, She can give Imelda Marcos a run for her money.
    3.a- what do women want?///I honestly don’t know. Each has her own pet peeve. Different strokes for different folks ika nga. I don’t think we could ever answer this question at all.
    4- will you approve your daughter’s move to live in with the man she wants before matrimonial?///Absolutely NO. My daughters know where I stand on this issue so it’s not even mentioned or tried in my household. Thank God they respect their father.
    5- would crying in public disrobe one’s manhood?///NO! My take is it is better to cry in public than to keep it bottled up inside you. At one point, you have to let itor it will eat you from the inside out. I never consider crying as a sign of weakness in a man. Humility is good and it makes you come to grips with your weakness and we all have those.We Pinoys have to face reality sometimes and quit being a macho.
    6- beside raising colorful kois, would you go for hammerheads? arowana?///He-he-he. I find solitude and peace in my little nook by the pond. I enjoy the serenity of the moment. I’m beggining to appreciate nature the way it was intended to be and my Koi pond is my manifestation that I have come of age. it’s time to enjoy simple pleasures in life. As for Hammerheads and arowan? I don’t think my backyard is big enough to accomodate their size. LolZ
    7- how do you tame a “shrew’?///Shrew as in a woman? It’ll take a miracle before I cantame a shrew. I will not even try. I asked my wife if she is a shrew and she said “yes I am and you cannot tame me” End ofconversation….ayaw kong maging outside the kulambo.
    8- do you find jessica alba stunning?///Yes, Latin beauty is always alluring in my book.
    9- i have read your posts in several threads always with impeccable decorum. have you acquired diplomacy over the years, or was it always there since you were a child?///I probably acquired it over the years. I was a “Hot Head” in my youth and when pushed, I pushed back. I was involved in fights in elem school and in high school.Being poor and being picked on by school bulliesleft meno choice but to defend my honor. I did not have a happy childhood to say the least. Evenin my 20’s and early in my military career, I don’t back down from fights. I walk with a swagger and when excess testosterone and alcohol is involved, I’m very volatile. Only when I got married that I changed my ways and my perception of other people. Holding high visibility and important positions in the military and working with people of different nationalities has helped me hone my diplomatic skills. Military Leadership and Management Training is required in Senior Enlisted Ranks and I attended several of those classes.
    10- now that the kids are your pride, what comes next when they leave your abode?///I honestly feel the parents responsibility never ends even when children leaves the abode. Sure I will not impede in their lives but I will monitor how they’re doing and if need be, provide assistance and counselling to those whogoes astray. I will keep my distance and yet I’ll make it known that I’m available if needed.
    11- is religion an order, keeping societies at bay?///This is a touchy subject. Religion is something I practice and follow yet I don’t or will never criticize anyone who doesn’t share my faith. I abhor people who commitatrocites under the guise ofreligion.
    12- i am impressed by hilary clinton and i felt sad she lost to Obama. was his man her downfall?///I think so. During her campaign, everywhere she went, good ol Bill is on tow. People started thinking that if she become President, it’ll beBill Clinton’s 3rd term in office and people resent that notion.
    13- to some, this number (13) is abhorred and feared. do you detest it?Nah! I’m not superstitious. I buy lotto tickets once in awhile and pick “lucky no. 13” at times. Now you know why I’m not rich. Lol!
    14- how did you keep your marriage that long lasting?///I have to constantly remind myself of my responsibilities as a father, a husband, a friend, a lover, a confidant, a handyman, a mechanic, a cook, labandero, platsa
