If you want happiness for an hour - take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day - go fishing.
If you want happiness for a month - get married.
If you want happiness for a year - inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime - help others.
Having seen the havoc brought by monster typhoon Yolanda, the hopelessness that ensued due to lack of organized relief operations and the utter despair of the residents in Central Visayas, particularly Leyte and Eastern Visayas, Chiang Kai Shek College did not lose time to reach out quickly. A college-wide campaign to accept donations of any kind except cash was immediately made. The reaction of parents, teachers, and students was a huge outpouring of support. On November 15, the deadline for dropping of relief goods, the lobbies occupying the ground floors of the Main and Narra campuses were filled with noodles, canned goods, clothes, sacks of rice, boxes of distilled water, etc. The next day, five organizations, namely: the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the Filipino-Chinese Business Club, Gawad Kalinga, Philippine Red Cross, and Operation: Guiuan (Samar), came to pick up the truck loads for immediate distribution.

October of every year is Scouting month in the Philippines. The 10th month of the year is also National Children's Month. It is the month to recognize the vital role of the youth in nation building. Many activities and celebrations are held to promote their welfare and the protection of their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and well being.
With that in mind, the Manila Council of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines conducted the awarding ceremony of the 2013 search for Ten Outstanding Scouts of Manila (TOSM) last October 24 at the social hall of the Nuestra Senora del Pilar, Sta. Cruz Church. The search aimed to recognize scouts in grade school and high school who best epitomize sterling qualities of leadership in school and community. More than thirty candidates were interviewed by a panel of judges last July 19 at the Augusto Syjuco Scouting Center and their submitted documents were also reviewed.
