    As of the month April, 2014, the current security agency contracted in Metrogate Dasmarinas (San Agustin) are the worst group of clowns that I have seen in almost 4 years of living in the subdivision. This group, led by the oic, Elizeir something or another, a short cocky little bastard who brags of being an ex-marine, claims to run a tight ship with his subordinates, has been found on numerous occasions sleeping at night while "on duty". Sleeping in the main front gate guard house with other security guards. I just wish that I had video taped them! This oic is very unprofessional and very arrogant. He harasses home owners, openly bad mouths homeowners and cares more about other peoples personal business than doing his job of protecting the residents within Metrogate. He has also been known to invite himself to home owners get togethers' just to eat the free food. The ico also pushes himself to ask for free coffee from homeowners. I also know that he begged a foreigner living there to borrow money and then never paid it back! Lastly, the home owner president, who is a very nice man, who happens to be gay... the oic is constantly making gay jokes and saying horrific sexual things about this man trying to make sure that the homeowners do not re-elect him. If you are reading this and have any similar thoughts or experiences, please post it so that we can get a new agency with professional security guards that will make us feel safe when we are in our homes at night. Thank you!

    hi, before you say something negative about the school, please make sure you have the right English grammar, thank you. A lot of us who carried the name Trinitarian are now successful. Try asking yourself why and think of what you are now.
