feeling the heat...inside out

I am freshly baked from the heat of Metro Manila...
...2 years to be exact from the day i left the tidying streets of Manila, i visit the Capital once again and find myself in awe seeing the gutters and sidewalks of EDSA so spic and span.

Makes me think, BF is about to become successful in his mission to make Metro Manila the bigger result of Marikina's cleanup mechanism...harsh but effective....deliberately effective...

Most of the time, effective leaders gain not so much friends but enemies...the harsh struggle BF had when he was starting cleaning up the streets of Manila....criticisms from people who wanted to hold their reins...from people who wanted to earn a living by selling on the streets which happen to be illegal at the sake of non-conforming to city ordinances and making Manila's streets unsafe and ugly...

I see otherwise in CEbu....the phenomenon is bothersome...to me who has seen Cebu City in its cleanest contemporary years...97 98 99...and i might have not seen the rest of it...times when Cebu City was so clean....It was during these years when I not only stood proud but literally spread the word that Cebu is a pleasant place to stay...no traffic jams...clean and amiable streetscapes....little if no garbage scattered on the streets...sad but had to 8-10 years forward, and Cebu becomes relatively a Big Big mess...

January 2006 ...and I remember so vividly riding home seeing so many plastics and debris on the streets of gen maxilom ave (then called mango)...streetkids at every point of intersection...and I pondered...what happened to my hometown? what used to be a beautiful city is slowly becoming an ugly urban decay...

I begin to think...and started to rationalize that it could be that people in the reins might be too scared to do things the BF way...gaining enemies by implementing the hard rules...rules that make people shy away from violating even the simplest ordinance for the simple reason that every violation comes with a corresponding penalty...with consistency on implementation regardless of your last name, affinity, or whether or not you can cast a vote to make him win in the next election...

BF has done it...and gained more enemies than friends...

i personally say, his rules are hard and fast....but when i got to see Metro Manila now, clean and becoming greener than it ever was...I can't help but smile from ear to ear...that indeed, hope for the Philippines lies in the hands of people who stand firm to achieve results for the greater good despite the odds of the games of politics...despite the banter...despite the mocking...

I haven't really seen the other side of the coin...but my opinion still stands based on the results I just so...Ugly Metro Manila transformed into a pleasant landscape.

...My hope is for CEbu to find leaders like BF.... straightforward despite the odds...simply sensible...effective leaders who understand the basic essence of human existence...as everything else falls into place for a well kept environment.

...Meanwhile, I worry about the business permit I applied for last August 2007 which never really moved from the tables of Cebu City hall officers and inspectors...some say, there is a phenomenon going on called "lack of GREASE"...

I keep holding on to the idealism of non-tolerance to corruption...and of course, expect that my papers would never move in the end...unless I cease to rage war against the many enemies of the non-corrupt citizens....then maybe I'd see results...

...but then again, THAT is another hell of a story...
