The PTC Cocktail Party was another memorable occasion for PTC employees that provided the needed break to refresh and recharge as we look forward to another year.

Perfect Deformities “Augie Pullman can’t change the way he looks, but maybe we can change how we see.” I was sobbing like a young girl watching the movie Wonder in a plane, and I was thankful that the lights were switched oﬀ, otherwise the ﬂight attendant would have approached me to ﬁnd out what was wrong. The movie—Wonder, is about a 5th grader boy –Augustus Pullman, who at that very early age, already faced twenty-seven facial surgeries. His facial deformities were the main subject of his torments during his ﬁrst days in school amongst his “normal” classmates. I stopped and wondered. Did we ever encounter such a speech so “deformed” in Toastmasters? Someone who used up ﬁve minutes of a table topic session just saying ah’s and uhm’s? How about a prepared speech in disorder: void of a main topic, presented in the lousiest, most unprepared, straight-from-thenapkin, read and babbled for the attendees to endure. I believe the answer is, I did. We did encounter those. And it was me and you. No matter how much speech competition we won in

clubs, in areas, in division or districts, no matter how many letters we accomplished after our names, a CC, a CL , or an ABCDEFG, we will always show imperfections. Like Augie, the deformities will always show and be very evident amongst our fellow Toastmasters. However, unlike being tormented, we will always be uplifted. Instead of being laughed at, we are and will always be supported. Because fellow Toastmasters, there is one ideal thing I’d like to believe that only exist inside our Toastmasters club. Despite all of us having deformities in the way we speak in front of diﬀerent people, inside Toastmasters, it is not the way we see and hear the mistakes, but in how we perceive them as opportunities to improve our fellow Toastmaster. What we all have are perfect deformities because they make us better… all the time.

Get to Know… Harold “El Conquistador” Calderon By Daniel Francis Gorospe
e is frequently mistaken for a foreigner or a visitor from one of Microchip’s oﬀ -shore facilities, until he starts speaking in Tagalog or demonstrating Pinoy idiosyncrasies. Asked how he feels about the mistaken identity, he says he brushes it oﬀ although there had been instances where he was taken advantaged of by market vendors selling him produce at a higher price. Meet Harold Meneses Calderon, the “El Conquistador” (his moniker in the PTC Basketball Club), this issue’s Featured Toastmaster. He is the MCU8 NPD2 Group Leader, Wire Band drummer, and Charter Sgt-AtArms of the MicroSpeak Toastmasters Club. He has showbiz bona ﬁdes, too, as he has submitted short ﬁlm entries in ﬁlm festivals, and bagged a 3rd place award for his eﬀorts. Who would forget his famous line “Gusto niyo bang sumikat?” (Do you want to be famous?), delivered in one of his Toastmasters speeches? This guy is a star-maker! Harold always loved the movies. As
a kid, he would watch a movie or two a week, at times for free (who says his foreign-ness is being taken advantaged of? He is the one taking advantage!). Then on weekends, he would accompany his Mom to watch Nora-Vilma-Sharon tearjerkers. His love of movies eventually became his ticket to movie directing. He inﬂuenced a friend who is a photography expert to embark on this new enterprise. One day they decided to make a short ﬁlm and submitted it to a contest. Their ﬁlm was not accepted due to technical ﬂaws. Rather than being discouraged they improved their craft, and in 2013 they submitted a documentary to the 25th GAWAD CCP PARA SA ALTERNATIBONG PELIKULA AT VIDEO. Their ﬁlm “Saka” won 3rd place for documentary. It was a ﬁlm about farming and the farmer who told his story, a story of sacriﬁce, dreams, and family. The ﬁlm was eventually featured in Cinemalaya in 2014, part of the perks of winning. Asked what the recognition meant to him, he said that it was a blessing knowing that they didn’t expect to win, that they can be good at ﬁlm making and tell human interest stories that hardly register with moviegoers. Harold and his co-director made their 3rd short ﬁlm “Make-up”, about a woman with a strong personality at work but very loving and caring wife and mother to her family at home. It was meant to highlight the multiple roles a woman plays in society. They sent the ﬁlm to the same aforementioned ﬁlm festival at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) in 2015. A lot of the scenes were ﬁlmed at PTC 3/F oﬃces, where Harold tapped breakout stars and Toastmasters Robert Caguioa and Marlon Soriano as supporting actors. Harold is in-
deed a star-maker! While ﬁlm directing is a fairly new gig for Harold, his prior gig is playing for his band. Though we know him as PTC’s hard-pounding Wire Band drummer, he in fact plays multiple instruments – guitar, bass, keyboard. He and his friends in High School formed a band named Sus An Roces, because they like doing covers of Guns N’ Roses songs. He became the drummer because, according to him, nobody else will do drums. Chronologically, in between these gigs, Harold raised his own family. He is happily married for 15 years to the former Ma. Rhodora “Rhoda” Costales. Their union is blessed with two loving children, Johann Elijah (14) and Maria Shekinah (13).

Harold said parenting has been fun and educational for him. He is doing a lot of adjustments and sacriﬁces, and receiving aﬃrmation and love in return, not to mention the all too important constructive criticisms. He bonds with his children

One of the ways Harold and Rhoda ﬂex their parental muscles is in the social media habits of their children. The children are not yet allowed to have Facebook accounts (even Rhoda does not have an account, but whether that was imposed by Harold or not, the matter is best left to the spouses), but they can use the account of Harold instead. The children do have gmail and youtube accounts, and they enjoy uploading videos for sharing.
If Harold’s interests and talents give the impression that he graduated with a Liberal Arts degree, he in fact graduated with a degree in BS ECE (Electronics and Communications Engineering) from the University of Santo Tomas (UST). He has worked as an engineer since graduating from college, and was twice selected as Employee of the Year by his previous employer. Success for him involves having a dream and persevering in that dream. Without either one, success cannot be achieved. Despite his success and stature in his chosen profession, he believes he still has room for improvement.
Harold is a ﬁrm believer in LOVE, and not just because his wife will read this feature. Waxing philosophical, he said, “We are in this Life because of Love and we will pass on to the Next Life because He joined Toastmasters to be Toastmaster Harold with his wife, Rhoda, and their two of Love.

They Only Live Once By Rico Rafael Torres “Let us not wait for the one day, one month, or one-year what if. Let us show them our love each and every day. Let us make them feel that they are appreciated. Let us say the words that they wanted to hear..“
t was December 25, year 2002, at around 3 o’clock in the morning. My mother and I, together with my brothers were busy in the killing room. This is where we prepare the dressed chicken before sending them to the market. Amidst the noise of the chicken waiting for their turn and the whirling motor used to remove the feathers, I can hear a familiar sound: my uncle breathing hard and coughing. He is having an asthma attack. That early morning, I heard something different. The heavy breathing is louder and more frequent. And then it came: “Mga anak ko, mga anak ko!” shouted my Uncle. “Ate Naty, wag niyo sila pababayaan!” He was having a heart attack! We got to his room and my father got the keys. While we were at the back of the owner-type jeepney, my uncle breathed his last.
ourselves. Since my father worked abroad for a few years and worked in Manila when he came back, I am very close to my uncle. He always sports his P50 Ray Ban to protect his eyes from the heat of the sun and a jacket to keep him warm on early morning and late night drives.
Madame Toastmaster, fellow Toastmasters, and guests, that Christmas morning I saw my uncle die in my arms. The more painful part is there’s nothing I can do. I blamed the jeep because it took forever to start, I blamed the hospital nearby because they are not equipped for emergencies, I blamed a lot of things. Things, not people, I had no one to blame.
We have these experiences. It may not be an uncle. It can be an aunt, a cousin, a grandparent, a sibling, a mother, or a father who had gone too soon.
My uncle lived with us since I was in kindergarten. He was a tricycle driver and he often gave us a ride to school until we can commute by
When I got a job a month before he passed away, he told me about a gift he wanted to receive: an original Ray Ban. I know it is expensive. I also know that he will be truly happy when he gets one. Two of my older brothers are already working and one is in Japan. I know we can chip in and buy him one. The plan did not materialize. He was gone too soon. Sometimes I would ask myself, what if we gave him the gift during that Christmas. Could it have changed the course of events? We can never know.
What if. This is a common question we have in life: What if you only have one day, one month, or one year to live, what are you going to do? I will do the things I have on my bucket list. Some of us will answer. That is an easy reply. Do the things that we haven’t done before. Go to places that we haven’t seen. Eat all
kinds of delicious food, not worrying if they are nutritious or not. Who cares? We’re going to die anyway. You only live once. How about we change the question? What if your loved one has only a day, a month or a year to live? What are you going to do? Well, I will… help them with the items on their bucket list. Do you know what they are? Do you know the things they haven’t done before? Do you know the places they haven’t seen and are dying to see? Pun intended. Do you know the food they have been craving for? Let us not wait for the one day, one month, or one-year what if. Let us spend time talking to our loved ones and know them better. There are stories they are eager to share if only we are also eager to listen. There are dreams that we can help them achieve. There are gifts that if only we knew, we would readily give it to them. Let us not wait for the one day, one month, or one-year what if. Let us show them our love each and every day. Let us make them feel that they are appreciated. Let us say the words that they wanted to hear. Let us not wait for the one day, one month, or one-year what if. Let us act now because like me and you, they only live once.
A Letter to My Love By Maelene Makalintal My Love, I don’t know how to say this personally. I don’t even know how to express all my thoughts to you verbally. I don’t know how I can let you feel the same emotions that I am feeling right now. But my love, let me turn those spoken words to written sentences somehow. You came into my life like a rushing wave to the shore. Trying to reach me as far as you can go, Then you keep yourself rolling back to the sea It’s like you’re hesitating to come near or keep yourself away from me. You’re like a branch of tree, swinging back and forth with the wind Not sure if you are going to hit the ground and lay down with me or just watch over from above me. And let the wind softly whisper your name to me. I don’t understand why I keep on seeing signs of hesitations in your eyes. But my love, it doesn’t matter to me, I can always close my eyes. I want to take away those anxiety screwed inside your heart I want to break all the walls you built around you to keep you safe apart. My love, I want to take all the risks just to let you know I am willing to stand by your side. Let me love you and let my love not hide. I will not give you any reason to have doubts. I will just give you all my love, taking all risks and buts. I cannot promise in our way there will be no pain All I can do is to be with you through the rain I cannot give you the perfect love that everyone desires to win. But I will make the imperfect me the love you want to gain. Let me bring you back to the place where we first met. I can’t really express my heart out. I hope these words will speak out loud. Hi, I’m Mae. I hope you come, stay and make my world go crazy and round.
