  1. adek mode ka nanaman no asel hahaha kaw na maraming maraming award. gagawa rin ako ng ganto. isasama ko ung mga most behaved ko. hehehe

  2. Ang bangis ng mga credentials!
    🙂 hello!

    Joyo- A frustrated CPA, Part time daydreamer, Full Time Procrastinator😆

  3. Hi🙂

    Glad to find a fellow Rotaractor here ^^

    Btw, I was the president of Rotaract Club of De La Salle Araneta University D3800 RY 2009-2010.

    Looking forward to celebrate fellowships with your club🙂

  4. kainaman, pagkakagaling naman pala nareng si azel e…
    at nabasa ko yung DSSPC days,, minsan lang ako nakarating ng Regional, sa Lucena din.. pero di naman ako nakalusot… ikaw na,, idol…hehehe

    • Opo. Walang pinipiling propesyon ang pagsusulat. Maraming salamat sa pagdaan. Gayunpaman ay aking ipinababatid sa iyo na ako ay hindi pa isang ganap na Sertipikadong Pangpublikong Kuwentador.

  5. Whoa! Ang galing naman. Share ko lang po, laking DSPC-RSPC-NSPC din ako. Ang saya talaga ng experience. I’m currently in my last year in high school. Ini-enjoy ko na to the fullest ang pagsali ng press con.😄

  6. hello, ikaw po ba ‘yong may entry sa damuhan patimpalak na isang milya at isang kilometro ang haba? hihi, peace! dapat, kapatid, pinameryenda ang mga nagbasa nown, joke… ^^ natuwa ako sa vocabularies na nakita ko, mga 25 years ago ko pa sila huling nabasa, ahaha. meron ba ro’ng words na pinais, magkakahanggan, nalaba – mga ganyan? parang wala yata? ^^

    shaks, you do numbers tapos, nakakapagsulat ka… ikaw na. regards😉

  7. It’s good to see a fellow Rotaractor/Rotarian around here! I was President of the Rotaract Club at the University of Oklahoma from 2011-2012. Such an awesome organization.

  8. Thanks for reading my Legacy story! If you aren’t following my blog,, I hope you will consider doing so. I will follow your blog and see what else you have in store!

    • You’re welcome. I just love your roses. I envy you. I have propagated a lot of various plants, but roses, oh it was either- their roots just got rotten or aphids consumed them all up. Sigh. Keep on writing and posting.

  9. I feel humbled at your “like” on my post on Serendipity Farm because you seem to be a very accomplished man. Thank you for liking our exploits and dropping by to check us out. I love the moniker…”a solemn punch” something delivered righteously but not necessarily enjoyed. I hope to see you back on Serendipity Farm whenever you feel like it. Just make yourself a coffee and make yourself at home. If you hang about till November we have lemon wine and orange wine on the brew…might be a good batch…might not. Sometimes you just have to wait and see what you get, a great life lesson🙂

      • Plants are our world. It’s hard for them not to be when both of us are horticulturalists🙂. The good thing is that there isn’t anyone to tell you not to go nuts with propagation. The bad thing is that the house is full of plants!🙂

  10. Aba i see some rotaracts here.. Ahem we are the roster members of rotaract club of cubao ( the date, well basta roster member ako.. ) nice to read your not so short credential are you planning to run or something?🙂 nakakalula magbasa.. Sa dami ng credentials mo feeling ko grade 1 lang inabot ko..🙂 thanks for liking my post By the way.🙂

  11. Wow. Quite a life you’ve lived so far. And you’ve certainly made an impression on me with your eclecticism (which I’m sure many people notice too). Good luck, and take care.🙂

  12. Thanks for liking my blog post – if you really ARE interested in Australian flowering trees then you might like to visit my rainforest site at http://myrainforest.wordpress.com/about/, though not for a couple of weeks because I’m only just starting to develop it as a resource for my readers. Your site is most interesting, in a very different way to mine.

  13. Just stopping by to thank you for your recent like on Shift Key. Your site is excellent; enjoying your haiku. I even checked the meter in those I couldn’t read — must be the tech writer or old Army linguist in me. Oh, and thanks for the info on tanka; new to me – I’ll check it out.

  14. Hi,
    Thank you for visiting my blog “Is it better yet?” and liking my post about being patient after knee surgery. I’m glad you did because now I’ve discovered your blog and all the interesting things you’ve been writing! I haven’t read everything yet, (and I can only understand the English I’m afraid) but I like what I have read so far.
    Best wishes, Lyn

  15. I just love the title of this entry… and look where “A Journalist by Frustration” bought you! SO MANY awards! I must say, I do not know you personally but you must be proud of yourself! So many achievements! Keep them up🙂

  16. Thanks for the like on my blog! I am now following your blog and would really appreciate it if you would follow mine as well! Very impressive list of experience above. I am just starting out in the blog world and continue to be amazed by all of the talented individuals I have run across.

  17. Thanks for coming by my blog! This is a new blog for me and I appreciate any readers! I hope to be posting a photo-a-day starting Nov. 1st so I hope you will come back by! I will be checking out your blog further!

  18. Hi! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for the “likes” on my haiku. It meant a lot to me that you took the time to visit my blog and that you enjoyed my writing and pictures.

    I enjoyed your haiku very much! And I’m looking forward to reading more of your entries in the future. =)

  19. Thank you for stopping by and visiting and liking. I am a newbie to this and it is so gratifying and humbling when someone else likes something I write. Please visit again. I am posting today or tomorrow a few pics of tiny wildflowers that survived (in November!) Hurricane Sandy. I will be sure to continue to visit and read. As you (hopefully) read some of the blogs, while I do not usually specifically do plants, I do a lot on nature – one of my favorites is a blog I wrote about a snow day.

  20. Thanks so much for visiting Imagi Newman! I have signed up to follow your blog and look forward to seeing some awesome posts! Be sure to check back periodically at my blog for new posts, photos, and recipes!

  21. Aba! Biruin mo nga, taga-Batangas ka pa. Sa isang baryo sa San Pascual (malapit sa Bauan) ang aking pinanggalinga.🙂 Nice to meet you. Thanks for dropping by my blog.

  22. I don’t know how you ended up reading “Nagsulat ang Ilong Ko” but thanks for the like. truly appreciated.🙂

  23. Glad you liked the ‘Reclaiming Halloween’ post. It may of course have been the sonnet that grabbed your attention and that wasn’t mine but came from Malcolm Guite whose poetry is inspirational and whose blog, I’m sure, you would like too: http://malcolmguite.wordpress.com/blog/
    All good wishes.

  24. Hey there! I just want to give you a big thumbs
    up for your excellent information you’ve got here on this post. I’ll be returning to your
    website for more soon.

  25. Love your title, “Asel Punzalan, An Accountant by Profession, A Journalist by Frustration, A Farmer by Devotion, A Blogger by Default.” Aren’t we all a variety of things? It makes life interesting! Thanks for stopping by Experiences of an Expat and for the like of my “Pumpkin Fest” post.
