Delayed PAL flight for Zam-Mla took me off to NAIA at around 9:30 in the evening of September 20, 2016. I was supposed to board M/V Mary Joy 3 for Zam-Jolo on the 19th day of September when I heard Sir Dr. Joel A. Alamia saying, "Replace me." My reply was to ask what kind of workshop that I should attend in his behalf. Accordingly, it was just a module workshop. I accepted his trust on me. It was almost 4:00 PM when my better half and I entered the pawnshop under Southern City Colleges. Alhamdulillah, 2-Go availed me in PAL promo.

Indanan South District continued the implementation of monthly DLF (District Learning Forum) among school administrators and teachers, sometimes. The DLF aims to provide educational inputs for the school heads and teachers. It was created and agreed upon by all school heads since 2013 based on the advice of former DepED-ARMM Secretary, Hon. Atty. Jamar M. Kulayan. The Secretary stressed that every district should have a monthly brainstorming among school officials for the improvement of school performance focused on the learning outcomes of the learners.
I was surprised to see my ruined table with new table cloth. It was a time when I was District In-Charge shared district office with Indanan North District. I learned it came from this teacher, Ma'am Hja. Juanita U. Isnain. I did not asked her to do what she did.
One day, she chanced to visit the newly-renovated district office thru the financial assistance of DepED-ARMM Secretary, Dr. John A. Magno.
As she stepped on the door, "Wow, nice office! I'll donate curtains.
"I don't need your donation" PSDS replied.
She was stunned. PSDS Moore observed that she was hurt. He asked her to sit in front of him comforting her to donate table cloth if she would really be willing to donate. She immediately nodded. PSDS Sam described the colors and the style for the table cloth. Ma'am Hja. Juanita followed the instruction.
Time came when I saw unintentionally while conversing with school heads and teachers in the district office. To his sight appeared the table cloth with nice design but different color to what the PSDS expected.
September 14-15, 2016 housed Sulu PSDS and personnel of Division Planning Office for the 2-Day Geotagging Validation Workshop in City Inn Hotel, Zamboanga City. SDS, Dr Tim J. Undain, FRIEdr spearheaded the Sulu participants as required by BEAM-ARMM. The workshop focused on the validation of all schools' geotagging reports which were previously submitted to the DepED Regional Office. BEAM-ARMM secretariats provided every Sulu participant with a map where Sulu schools appeared. Unfortunately, some were in uncertain locations based on the latitude and longitude coordinates. Correction on that matter was the activity done by the PSDS and other Sulu school officials. The beauty of that workshop was the significant learning of the participants in using the google earth apps facilitated by the BEAM-ARMM secretariats.
