  2. Hello po, nabasa ko po yung yahoo news tungkol sa petroleum nut nyo po, link is at http://ph.news.yahoo.com/michael-bengwayan–the-revolutionary-environmentalist.html

    Basing sa comment po marami interested na suportahan kayo, maybe gusto nyo mag drop ng comment kung pano daw po kayo ma kontak at saan po ba mabibili yung petroleum nut. Napakagaling po ng iyong natuklasan, nakakatulong po xa sa kalikasan.

    Isa po akong OFW sa Singapore, hindi man po ako makakatanim dyan sa atin pero at least I can help you spread the word para kung sino man ang nasa Pinas ay masuportahan po ang inyong hangarin. God bless you and your family…

  3. Hello, Mr. Bengwayan. I came across your name in yahoo’s “Best Pitong Pinoy” and I voted for you after reading your blog. I am amazed at your discovery of the petroleum nut. It’s the same old story of inventors unable to get patent for their products and foreigners getting them instead. I feel very indignant! My grandfather was one of those prolific inventors who never got a single patent for his inventions. We share the same love for plants and trees and the environment. You write well too. Gosh, I have lots to catch up on your blogs. Will share this with family and friends. Thanks! And congratulations on your effort about the Baguio Pine trees. Whew!

    Ms. Irene, do we really have candlenuts in the Philippines? Are these the ones used for Indonesian cooking? I have mine bought pa from Jakarta so I can cook some Indo dishes. We share almost the same environmental conditions with Indonesia so that’s very exciting indeed!

    • Thank you for your support Corr, you are very kind. Sayang if this discovery will not be supported and later on it will be exploited by foreigners. I hope someone out there will help. Thank you so much and I admire what your grandfather has done.

  4. Please don’t give up on the patent. We can’t allow another loss of patent for our country’s own like the ylang-ylang. Maybe, out there in the universe is a lawyer specializing in obtaining patents that can help you out?
