Mr. Calayag's Journey from Manila to Siargao with his new Ford Ranger


Mr. Calayag works as a Production Manager at Bountry Fresh Food, Inc for several years in Manila until he was assigned in a province in Mindanao which is closer to his hometown in Siargao Island, province of Surigao Del Norte. He has been traveling regularly from Mindanao to Manila as part of his role in the company and he's very much familiar with Bonifacio Global City where our Ford dealership is located. 

Upon receiving an email in our August 2017 zero downpayment promo, Mr. Calayag sent his online application immediately and was approved by the East West bank for 15% downpayment promo. Zero-downpayment was a great deal for him and he relied on the power of technology through online in-house financing. For him, online application is more convenient and faster as compared to making a purchase in a Ford dealership in Mindanao which is a bit higher in price.

On August 25, 2017, Mr. Calayag and his wife, who is a  Secondary school teacher flew from Mindanao to Manila for the scheduled release of their brand new Ranger XLT FX4 vehicle. They were comfortable in our showroom as they go through the process of signing the required documents. Their excitement was noticeable as we presented them their new vehicle. Mr. Calayag admitted that he has a pre-owned vehicle and it is their first time to own a first-hand brand new car. 

The couple was impressed by the appearance of their new Ranger vehicle. They have chosen cool white color which was obviously their favorite color.  The comfort and convenience that the vehicle provides was also their motivation. In fact, they traveled back to their hometown by inter-island. That was about 2 days of long drive from Metro Manila down to Bicol Region, crossing to Samar Island and finally their destination, Siargao Island in Surigao Del Norte. 

Although that was a long journey on the road, the couple had fun with their new vehicle and have proven its fuel efficiency. That was an accomplishment for the couple to travel and arrive safely back home. Now, they have a new vehicle which they can use for both personal transport and for their business. 

The 2017 Ford Ranger is built for tough and a reliable vehicle for the whole family. It is equipped with safety features and advanced technology that will make your journey memorable and fulfilling no matter how tough the road may be. With the Calayag family, having a brand-new Ford Ranger is a blessing and they are grateful that they have made the right decision in trusting Ford Global City as their dealer of choice. They may have met challenges on the crossroads, but they will surely succeed as they navigate the road ahead with optimism and gratitude.

The Road Ahead: Move on and Go Further


"A highway of success is not possible without a rocky road. And we always go forward in life no matter what the obstacles and challenges we are going through as long as we believe in ourselves and we keep our faith not to be stucked, but to keep on going further."


Life has been a series of a wonderful beginning. A series of unexpected events; a sudden turn of fate. When the door closes, there will always be a window to open up. Vast and limitless possibilities, offering the best world you have been dreamin' and  that window offers a glimpse of a gentle light that's very promising.

The road ahead may have directed me towards another viewpoint in life, that we can unleash our potentials in whatever way possibly we can. Though it may be unknown to me, but then the hardest thing will always be the beginning. As long as the fire keeps burning, everything will have its happy ending. That's what I know for sure.

Aha! It was exactly 5 months ago when I joined the automotive industry. It was  never in my mind, but I trust the guts and the fate that is there for me. As a trained healthcare professional, I have dreamed of working in a medical facility, helping people regain strength, achieve wellness and become purposeful member of society again. Well, that happened just recently and that was truly an experience. There's always a healing power in our hands and we are all capable of healing people. You don't need to become a doctor or a nurse to heal people, as there's always a healing energy in compassion and motivation. If that's what you can give, we can create a ripple of goodwill whoever we are and whatever industry we are in. That's it!

Service to humanity is not confined to a single industry where compassion is much known. Compassion is in the soul of our being and we carry it in any work that we do. In our dealings with people, we show compassion through excellent customer service, ensuring the best experience leading to customer satisfaction and retention. In any industry, our job involves delighting our clients with our services that are exceptional, something that is incomparable that makes them a happy and delighted customer. As what the Dalai Lama said that "our goal is be happy and to be happy one has to be compassionate"  so with that, it is truly our loving-nature; a big and overflowing heart that makes us not only experience happiness, but ultimately bliss -- a deeper spiritual experience.

There will always be a a light that will guide to the deepest of our soul. A material world that may be less spiritual to many, but a single step towards a thousand miles of spiritual journey. I believe that material and spiritual world co-exist and in this chosen path it's hard to resist. We are in control of or decisions, but there's a higher soul that will make us realize our worth. We can always choose whom to follow, the ones who will show compassion on our being; to the realization of  our deepest dreams and desires to fulfill. I feel the connection, I feel the care, the gratitude and the sense of pride. The culture is wonderful and that has been created from the foundation of love, respect and trust to its people. It's not about the name of the company or how big it is; it's about making a company big even from the simplest contribution that is worthy of recognition. We can certainly create a culture of unity and not divisiveness. A culture of respect, friendliness, camaraderie and compassion. That's what we all need to succeed.

I remember the smiles, the happy faces and the grateful heart in every interaction. I can sense the sincerity and humility to help that no matter how busy we are with our work, still we find time to reach out with our helping hand. It's the people that we're working with that will help us stay alive. No matter how tiring the day may seem, nothing beats the positive energy and enthusiasm that makes us energized and keep motivated. It's the culture that makes a difference. As I brave the storm of impossibilities, there will always be a mirror to hold; to look back from the past successes, thereby rising up from the challenges. It's never too late to start with a positive spirit fighting for greatness in a little world that I live in, but an expanded consciousness is unlimited as I have been given. There are so many things to realize and to discover within ourselves. We can look forward to a brighter future and  keep the passion ignited in every single day. Trusting the leader and giving all out support to the company we highly believe in.

The road ahead is full of uncertainly, but we always create our own reality. The roads may me rough for now, but eventually a smooth ride will follow in the days to come as long as we keep on moving in a forward direction. A highway of success is not possible without a rocky road. And we always go forward in life no matter what the obstacles and challenges we are going through as long as we believe in ourselves and we keep our faith not to be stucked, but to keep on going further.

Hope For Humanity: A Life Worth Living



The year 2013 was probably the worst disaster that hit the Philippines, my beloved country. The day when the most destructive typhoon killed thousands of lives and families that were left homeless. November 8, 2013 was a nightmare to consider. Several lives were lost in an instant and many people suffered from post-traumatic stress. They were helpless, they didn't know what to do and they felt abandoned and neglected. It killed not only innocent lives, but the hopes and dreams of many people; families who are living a very simple life and those who have just started to build they lives. It was all gone due to a major impact caused by Typhoon Yolanda, internationally known as Haiyan.

As a disaster-prone country, we learned to adapt to almost every calamity. We brave the storm and that proves the Resilience of The Filipino Spirit that we are as hard as titanium, but as soft as a pearl. We learn to recover and stand up again despite of the miseries we have experienced. We struggle, we cry, we laugh and we smile. That's the cycle of life we are meant to live. In the Philippines, that's our reality. We are waterproof no matter what challenges we are going through. We Filipinos are tough, but our poor soul experiences the pain that makes us feel helpless, meaningless and lack of direction and purpose. We became lost and wanderer in body, mind and spirit.

Destruction of humanity caused by climate change is the greatest challenge we are facing in this century. We have caused great damage to the earth and we also suffer the consequence; hence disaster is becoming a normal occurrence that we must learn how to fight in order to survive. Yes, we are a survivor in this archipelago of stormy seas. Our survival instinct guides our actions to escape from harm and danger. Our bodies may have become weak, but our spirit still has an energy to live. That is Perseverance in Times of Despair that we develop in our character. We became fearless and we endure all the pain.

As a survivor, I have learned to acknowledge the importance of saving our environment; our nature; the habitat we are living in; saving the forestry that are becoming denuded, creating an awareness for people who doesn't care. People are becoming greedy and busy for the destruction of nature just to gain wealth. That's their way to survive and their way to live. For us, we end up suffering. Those people are careless not to think and feel for the welfare of the people. Truly, a destruction against humanity.

A simple way of expressing disgust to environmental destruction and showing  a support to environment protection drive would mean a lot. I believe there are still people who are a better leader and has a voice and influence to beat the destroyers, the environment killers. I give my support to those who care for humanity and the world. There's nothing more worth living than a peaceful and heaven on earth experience. When we sleep so deep and wake up with higher hopes and goals to accomplish. When we live in harmony with nature and keeping our balance as we progress. There is nothing more in life than to keep everything fair and just.

My previous life experiences made me stronger and to think extraordinarily and My Life's Greatest Challenge prepared me for a bigger role of serving humanity through personal transformation through higher consciousness. I've been prepared for a disaster preparedness for a possible worst case scenario. The world is ever changing and unpredictable, however we can always foresee the events based on the current trend. Today, we are Dealing on The Impact of Climate Change. That's our reality and we are now living on it. We can't stop it, but we can prepare for the worst thing to come to fully survive. I mean not only by physical level, but also by emotional, mental and spiritual levels as well.

Life is good and it is worth living to have a little influence to others. We can make an impact in our own way based on what we believe is right and for the betterment of other people. Our humanitarian actions will go a long way; creating a ripple of kindness and goodwill that will eventually change the world to become a better place. It is our Heart's Desire: Living a Humanitarian Life that will influence others to stand up and take an action for a better mankind. We have higher hopes to ourselves, but we are also hoping more for humanities' future. As I remember, a life in service is a life worth living and a life well lived -- the humanitarian way.
