Light Network Special Coverage of SONA 2016 from my experience

As a young elementary student, I would always bring a cassette tape recorder and interview my classmates and other people thru it and it was my dream to be a reporter or a media person like my famous grandfather the late ka Doroy Valencia.

For those that do not know his legacy, here is an entry about him from NL wikipedia

I met Light Network’s Next Layderos thru a seminar hosted by the queen of e-commerce – Ms Janette Toral.

This is how Next posted about our Affiliate marketing class under Ms. Janette Toral last  June 4 2016 taken from his FB page.

1st time ever I experienced a live TV show was during the Light Network’s broadcast of President Du30’s Sona last July 25 at their office at Strata 2000. A group of bloggers including myself were invited by Light network’s Marketing Manager Next Layderos.

The anchors for the show were Mari Kaimo from CBN-Asia and Ms. Claire Delfin.

The guests were Senator Rene Saguisag, Ms. Etta Rosales from the commision of Human Rights and on the other side Dean Amado Valdez and Atty. Jeremiah Belgica who was a Pastor too.

Here is the full text of the Sona 2016:

FULL TEXT: State of the Nation Address of Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte –

I was able to experience a behind the scenes look on how a live Television news broadcast is made and it was such an enlightening experience.

I received a special token from Light Network:

Thank you so much!  A book about how to be delivered from offense, either as the offender or the one who was offended. Very timely!


Quotable quotes from Manila Bulletin’s youtube channel:

Here is my favorite quote from this SONA.


I hope that as we always have haters or people who fight with us as individuals, families, churches, corporation, and as a nation, that we can do strive for unity and be professional with our dealings with each other. I hope we can work together for higher ideals instead of continuously keeping our crab mentality and to be winners instead of whiners.

I am proud to be affiliated with Next Layderos and Light Network as one of their featured bloggers since I believe that we must be a light in the darkness!

I believe and pray that President Rodrigo Duterte will keep and perform his promises for this SONA 2016 especially about the faster internet and lower income tax.
