  2. Good day sir. I am Janine Baylon, an undergraduate student from De La Salle University Manila studying BS Chemistry. My thesis partner and I are very interested in Petroleum Nut and would like to study more about its properties and its viability for biodiesel. We would like to meet you and interview you regarding the Petroleum nut (e.g. where to get samples, its characteristics, requirements of the location for its propagation, etc.).

    Hoping for your immediate response. Thank you.

  4. I was watching the news earlier and heard about you and your work. It’s amazing Sir; truly an inspiration. God bless you and your family 🙂

  5. Good day sir! I am Lovely Bernardo from Saint Louis University – Maryheights Campus, Bakakeng, Baguio City. Our organization, Green Core Society, admires your work and your opinion would really have significance in our plans, considering your credibility and your immense knowledge about your field. So sir would like to ask for your help po. Last April 28, 2012, we planted 140 pine seedlings here in our campus. And part of our agenda is to plant more trees (of different varieties if feasible) here in our campus and outside campus as well, which we already have been doing since the establishment of our organization. Planting pine trees would really be a great idea, but we understand that these take time to be fully grown. Sir, are there any other seedlings that we can plant that will give us almost the same, if not exactly the same, benefits as we can get from pine trees that have faster growth rate? We would really appreciate your reply sir. You can contact me at 09068588103 or 09332419896 or at Thank you so much po!

  6. Hello, sir, and good day. I am a not a blogger nor an environmentalist but I have been doing some research on big commercial establishments and their impact on the environment. This is so because at present my family and a certain big company, whose name I cannot divulge here will soon, I expect, will be embroiled in a legal struggle. It was through this research that I came upon your name and have gone through your blogs and i must say I admire your dedication for the preservation of the environment. Our ailing earth certainly needs more people like you.

    I would like very much, sir, to speak with you personally, if you would care to know about our present situation. Can I ask for your email? My email is I hope to hear from you soon.
    Thank you .

  7. Doc saludo po ako sa didication nyo sa environment. Ask ko lng po if ur Petruleum NUT is possible to grow in ilocos areas? it would be a help for ilocanos if this tree can replace the Tobacco Plant. A massive support from us if this would be feasible. tnx and GOD BLESS SIR!!

  8. Hi Michael, I just saw the article written about your work on petroleum nuts at Yahoo. I just want to point out that you can use crowdfunding sites like kickstarter and indiegogo to get funds to obtain a patent and even beyond.

    Here’s a list of crowdfunding sites:

    Its really disappointing if ever Filipinos will not benefit from this the most. If our gov. won’t listen, then bring your work directly to the people online.

  9. Hi sir, nabasa ko po yung posts sa FB tungkol sa biodiesel na na-imbento ninyo. Alam ko pong mahirap kumuha ng patent at saludo po ako sa galing ninyo. Meron po ba akong matutulong para manatiling atin ang karapatan sa paggamit ng petroleum nut? Please po desperado akong tumulong, taga-blog ng info, taga-solicit…kahit ano po

      • Siguro po nakukulitan na kayo sa akin. gagawa na Lang ako Nguyen promotional materials sir. baka po pedestrian makahingi ng pictures. sorry po alam kong busy din kayo. salamat sir

  10. Hi sir. I am rose from Zamboanga City. I am very much impressed of your passion and dedication to take good care of our only mother earth definitely not only within our lifetime but also to sustain the next generations to come. Your accomplishments is an inspiration to Filipinos across all ages. But the government’s unsupportive attention to the potential of Petroleum nut to make the Philippines energy sufficient by growing OUR own oil, is a masterpiece of FILIPINOS SITTING ON A MOUNTAIN OF GOLD!

    Sir, hindi ko talaga maintindihan kung bakit negative ang Philippine government in harnessing the potential of Petroleum nut. What is ba talaga the REAL SCORE!? Please reply.

    Ako po ay hangang hanga sa yo, SIR! I will pray that you will not give up. Wag nyo po sanang hayaang angkinin ng mga dayuhan ang Petroleum nut. Wag nyo po sanang hayaang paulit ulit tayong gisahin sa sariling mantika.Hang on sir. . .

    If there is anything Zamboanga City could help, we are willing to help in any manner we can. Hope to hear from you.


    • hi rose,

      thanks so much for your nice letter. it is humbling to receive such a nice note and i am overwhelmed. I hope the government will wake up but then I can’t wait for that, I will continue teaching our sisters and brothers in the countryside about this miracle tree. You can help by probably relaying the information to others. i also welcome you to join me at FB so that you will be able to see other posts. thanks rose, once again and feel free to write anytime. my no is o9192155771

  11. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I do not know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!
