Clad in blush cocktail Trishka Puno Filipiñana and Tosca Handcrafted Pearl Earrings , I went to Makati City Hall to attend the Inaugural Session. But first, I went to my office.
For my three consecutive terms as City Councilor of Makati, I have been assigned to hold office at Coun. Rico J. Puno's former room at the 19th floor. It was a beautiful room wherein my Dad had the interiors designed and fixed. It was also very spacious and it had its own pantry, storage room, and bathroom.
I often wished that I would be assigned in the same room because I wanted to be where my Dad spent his last days as a City Councilor. However, for my fourth term as City Councilor, the office assigned to me was the former office of the IRD.
TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE
The room is situated at the 20th floor beside the Executive Elevator. The room has two reception areas and two small offices inside. The reason why we have two of everything is because I will be having a roomie! Yes, for the first time, I will be sharing office space with a Co-Councilor. I will be sharing it with my good friend and Colleague, Coun. Boyet Cruzado from District 2 City of Makati.

People were offering or sharing their thoughts on the matter since it has always been a prerogative of previous leaderships to assign officials their respective offices. May mga concerned, may mga naaawa at meron din naman na nagsasabing "bakit ganon?"
Since we were the only ones to share offices among the elected Councilors, it was tempting to complain but I chose not to go that road. Entitlement is definitely bad news. Walang magandang maidudulot ang entitlement dahil lahat naman ay galing sa Diyos. Ang bawat hininga natin, Siya ang nagdudulot at nagbibigay. Gratefulness is good news kaya doon po tayo. And yes, I actually loved my new office!
Praise God for my parent's upbringing and the encouragement I get from God's Word for these have enabled me to decide in my heart to obey God wholeheartedly by respecting my authorities, to submit to their leadership and to rejoice always. In this light, I acknowledge that God is Sovereign and He is good.

I shall give thanks in everything! Thankful to the current leadership for my new office space. Thankful also to Councilor Boyet Cruzado for being such a gentleman. Above all, I thank the Lord Jesus for putting me in Office!
Excited in this new journey where God has placed me. New room, new term, and new beginnings! There are so many things to look forward to, including the challenges that will make me wiser and stronger.

"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
Romans 8:28 (NASB)
It is all about Him and His plans! There must be a good purpose why He has allowed these things to happen. One thing is for sure, we can put our trust and hope in Jesus. God doesn't fail His children and He has a good future for those who love Him. Guys, whatever happens, I know He will never leave me nor forsake me for He has been faithfully fighting my battles. Basta kasama natin si Lord, we will be okay. He will continue to be our Good Father in Heaven and our Greatest Authority.
By God's grace, I will continue to serve the people of Makati to the best of my ability, to encourage, to respect and to do good to others for God is a Rewarder! Cheers!♥️
