Biggest task not fully understood

Nobody really understood what I was doing from July to December 2015. I just got back from my maternity leave not really wanting to do management system audits. I was extremely frustrated, nothing is happening, but since January 2015, I have been reviewing documents, procedures, guidelines, contractual requirements on the health, safety, security and environment (HSSE) for the fabrication of seventeen (17) modules for delivery to the Yamal LNG project. I was also locally managing a contractual arrangement with BV Russia.

It was my first foray to be part of a CDM Validation team as an observer, technically no, since …

Spent four days in a remote location. I was trying to practice night photography during one of those free times at night.  Power plants have to be in remote locations which is the norm but no one can stop population growth and urbanization that one day, remote locations are no longer remote anymore. We may …

The Pig is Getting Big

I guess this opensource pig was the source of that pig  which won the logo design contest when I was still spending my time with the Philippine Methane Initiative. I haven't had any connection with my former colleagues but one thing's for sure, pig waste and manure management have always had a big potential towards …
