We often celebrate occasions in buffet restaurants. This time around, we had our father’s day dinner at Chef Laudico’s Guevarra’s in San Juan. It’s a nice place, an old house converted to a resto. The food is Filipino-Spanish fusion, with a good variety. Heard about Sinigang na Lechon? This is where I first encountered such dish. They have different menus every night so the experience may vary.
For almost 600 bucks you can stuff your tummy with food as much as you want. But in my opinion, the restaurant will be better in ala carte setting. Why? Because their menu, like the Angus Beef Belly, is only good if it’s freshly cooked. The quality suffers a lot when the food is on standby. The taste is there, but you’ll just know that it isn’t fresh anymore.
Overall, Guevarra’s is a must try. But I don’t think I’ll be dining there regularly. My review, 3/5 spoons.
Everyday I thank God for the opportunity. Last week, the construction of my new project at Robinson’s Galleria has started. Target date to finish is by the end of July.
It’s difficult to secure a space in the mall these days, it’s a blessing I was able to get one.
Honor the Lord with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.
Proverbs 3:9-10 NKJV
A lot of respect from Grant Hill and Jason Kidd. Sucks that people grow old and retire from NBA.
Wished that Grant Hill was able to get at least one ring as well.
1. KNOW THE CONDITION OF YOUR FLOCK
* Follow the status of your people as well as the status of the work.
* Get to know your flock, one sheep at a time.
* Engage your people on a regular basis.
* Keep your eyes and ears open, question, and follow through.
2. DISCOVER THE SHAPE OF YOUR SHEEP
* Your choice of sheep can make flock management easier or harder.
* Start with healthy sheep, or you’ll inherit someone else’s problems.
* Know the SHAPE of your sheep to make sure they’re in the right fold.
* S = STRENGTH
* H = HEART
* A = ATTITUDE
* P = PERSONALITY
* E = EXPERIENCES
3. HELP YOUR SHEEP IDENTIFY WITH YOU
* Build trust with your followers by modelling authenticity, integrity, and compassion.
* Set high standards of performance.
* Relentlessly communicate your values and sense of mission.
* Define the cause of your people and tell them where they fit in.
* Remember the great leadership isn’t just professional; it’s personal.
* Tag or brand your employees with your mark.
4. MAKE YOUR PASTURE AS SAFE PLACE
* Keep your people well informed.
* Infuse every position with importance.
* Cull chronic instigators from the flock.
* Regularly rotate the sheep to fresh pastures.
* Reassure the sheep by staying visible.
* Don’t give problems time to fester.
5. THE STAFF OF DIRECTION
* Know where you’re going, get out in front, and keep your flock on the move.
* When directing, use persuasion rather than coercion.
* Give your people freedom of movement, but make sure they know where the fence line is. Don’t confuse boundaries with bridles!
* When your people get in trouble, go and get them out.
* Remind your people that failure isn’t fatal.
6. THE ROD OF CORRECTION
* PROTECT: Stand in the gap and fight for your sheep.
* CORRECT: Approach discipline as a teaching opportunity.
* INSPECT: Regularly inquire about your people’s progress.
7. THE HEART OF THE SHEPHERD
* Great Leadership is a lifestyle, not a technique.
* Every day you have to decide who’s going to pay for your leadership - you or your people.
* Most of all, have a heart for your sheep.
Based on The Way of the Shepherd book by Dr. Kevin Leman & William Pentak
“ When it comes to being gentle, start with yourself. Don’t get upsest with your imperfections. Being disappointed by failure is understandable, but it shouldn’t turn into bitterness or spite directed at yourself. It’s a great mistake because it leads nowhere—to get angry because you are angry; upset at being upset; disappointed because you are disappointed.”
To the barefoot man, happiness is a pair of shoes. To the man with old shoes, it’s a pair of new shoes. To the man with new shoes, it’s more stylish shoes. And of course, the fellow with no feet would be happy to be barefoot. Measure your life by what you have, not by what you don’t

It’s better to make a few people really happy than to make a lot of people semi-happy.
