My Glass Blog

Image
This is my diary, somewhat my glass blog. It will not attempt TO EXPLAIN my persona for I owe no one an explanation for who I am and what I want to be.

However, transparency is important, hence, I can clarify myself on vital issues concerning the events that embrace me as a Muslim, a transformational activist and a die-hard advocate of PEACE AND JUSTICE.
Your Princess Maleiha has always been non-discriminatory in friendship. Discerning in my online communications, for I always value true kindness no matter what.
My online activities have always been focused on bringing friendship to all people regardless of their creed and religion. This humble writer stands for "Unity Amidst Adversity".

Most of my works in the past when I was in the government were for peace and unity.
For those who want beyond friendship, please do not disturb me. I have better things to do than flirt.
There is so much lies on the internet and I shall not be a victim of such.
Meanwhile, let me thank you f…

I aim for excellence

Image
I am not perfect but I will not be a hypocrite to say I demand perfection in my craft. 
The effort is to achieve excellence. 
It is the process I have chosen to train my mind not to be content with mediocrity.

I respect my craft which is writing, and I would love to be a part of a society that transforms the ills of humankind from the negative to positive.

Excellence is not a goal, it is a lifestyle.

Their smiles lift me up

Image
My private charity works have touched some little kids and their smiles made my team happy. I should be the one saying, SUKRAN.

It is a golden opportunity to connect with people who enjoy life's simple pleasures.

Official Statement of the CANDAO CLAN on the LIGUASAN MARSH Controversy

Image
This official statement of the Candao clan is with reference to an alleged report made by the United States Embassy tagging the name of my father, former ARMM Governor Datu Zacaria Candao, as a claimant of the Liguasan Marsh in Maguindanao. Said report was prepared during the time of US Ambassador Kenney to the Philippines in 2006 but was made available in Wikileak early this week. In the name of TRUTH and FAIRNESS, we stand by the fact that the US Embassy diplomatic cable is “baseless and unfounded."


For the record, my father, Datu Zacaria Candao, has not filed any claim of the Liguasan Marsh in the past nor has he authorized any member of the Candao clan or any third party to lobby or make a claim of Liguasan Marsh on his behalf.

My father has openly addressed this problem during his incumbency as a major issue that has to be resolved between the Government of the Philippines and the MILF.
As a staunch advocate of peace in Maguindanao, the former Governor would support all talks be…

Unwise

Image
It is unwise to do things out of self-preservation, just to prove yourself.You will merely evolve in proving yourself-- to whom?
Lack of self-confidence will pull you to spending more energy for self-interest hence wasted time that should be spent on selfless ventures.
Find time to dedicate an hour of your time for other people outside of your greed and envy. Be kind and reachable at least for a short time if you could not afford to make it a selfless sustaining advocacy.


Their Wrongs Vs. Your Rights

Image
We can't please everybody. So why do we have to?
We can speak up anytime, politely as possible, but if there are people who will negate your words, that is a reality. You need to speak up the truth no matter who gets hurt.
As long as you speak the truth, no one can fault you. So never hold back.

Some people will choose to speak ill of you instead of admiring you. That is life and personal opinions do vary.

Some will prefer to see you down than triumph. Instead of getting sad, rise above their narrow mindedness and focus on your merits.

You do not need to prove anything to anyone as long as you know that you are on the right track. It is your rights above their wrongs.

Do Not Silence Me

Image
In the battle of principles, it is not who you are with but whom you choose to be with out of respect for your personal principles. If you must join a crowd to rally behind a cause, then ensure that your voice is heard not only by those beside you but by yourself as well.
Many people commit mistakes by thinking that by pursuing a cause with the voices of other people, you effect your point.

To advance a cause you must be completely convinced that you are not just mixing with the voice of popularity.

If I can not be true to my personal beliefs, then what right do I have to join a unified voice when I can't even hear mine? Just an appeal to those who might want to silence me: DO NOT EVER DARE. I may be sweet and kind but I am not a toothless tiger for I bite.
