About Me & This Blog

Third Best Picture Doing An Azkal Kick by Ian Paul

This is my blog. I blog about my daily encounters and make it into an interesting and often times FUNNY and HUMOROUS take on my life experiences.  Even the news that I share here should be FUN too.  So I guess I can call it my very own PERSONAL blog. It has given me my second wind.  I blog about events and everything under the sun and moon.  I started seriously blogging last August 1, 2009 and have not stopped ever since.  I blog from the heart so most of the posts here are my take on different issues both happy and sad.  I usually blog in English but it’s easier to blog in the vernacular.  So kung hindi mo naiintindihan ang blog ko, there’s always Google Translator to assist you.


Why Ganda Ever So Much for a blog title?  Why not, coconut?  It appeals to me and it intrigues anyone who hears about it.  So much so that they visit this site.  I will continue to blog as long as there are readers like you.  I will make my blogs an easy read para hindi kayo ma-stress at magka-nose bleed.

Why a FROG for mascot?  I’d like to believe that most of my readers are like the Frog Prince (or Princess) still waiting for their one true love to kiss them and live happily ever after.  The Frog can also signify everyone’s dream to come true.  Not!!! Seriously, I just find the Frog, the best contrast to my blog title.  Laban ka?

I’m easy to get along with as long as you’re not a dork! Maarte din ako. Ayoko ng mainit! Ayoko ng maalikabok! Ayoko ng walang tubig! Pero type ko ang putik! Gusto mo ako maging friend? Kung kaya mo ka-eng-engan ko then welcome to my world!

Second Best Picture As Good As Wine by Lito Antoqu

I am a banker by profession.  Been in the industry since 1985.  I joined Insular Bank of Asia and America (IBAA) as a clerk.  In 1986, IBAA merged with Philippine Commercial International Bank (PCIBank) where I found my niche as a Credit Officer.  In 1997, I was pirated by International Exchange Bank (iBank) to head their new branch in General Santos City.  I stayed on until August 2006 and moved to Asia United Bank (AUB) as Assistant Vice President.  In January 2008, I was tasked to oversee the Mindanao Branches of AUB.  I was temporarily tasked to handle Cebu Branches in January 2009 until we hired a permanent Area Manager for Visayas Branches.  In August 2009, I was promoted as Vice President.  I am still based in my beloved General Santos City.


I love my family.  I now understand why God has showered me with so much blessings.  I missed both my parents.  They taught us the value of humility and love for the good Lord.  We all live together and we’re a happy bunch kahit minsan short sa budget!  There are two things that bind us together – FOOD and WIFI connection!


This is where we live.  Katas ng pagta-trabaho ko sa iBank.  I call this my own private Idaho.  There are five rooms sa ground floor.  Ako lang mag-isa sa second floor where I have a small veranda.  I love the peace and quiet.  Maganda din ang view from the veranda.  In a clear day, you can see the majestic Mt. Matutum.

  27. Hi po Mr. Orman! *damingsmiles*
    I saw you for the first time at COuntry Homes Hotel as Resource speaker for our OJT Seminar. Nag-promote po kayo ng blog nyo, and true–na intriga po ako sa name pa lang. Sabi ng friend ko sikat daw yung blog nyo, tanong ko nga bakit hindi umabot sa akin? Kainis. And narealize ko hindi pala kasi ako taga-Gensan (pero studying in NDDU) kaya hindi ko masyadong kilala. Pero ngayon, super kilala ko na. I am a blogger din po but not as good as you-pero hoping to be..oh diba? ambisyosa lang 🙂 God Bless and more power po!

    (P.S. I hope you don’t mind me bagging some blog ideas po… Thank you! )

    Site ko po on Blogger:
