I’m now a fan of Maricar Reyes

9 Dec

I don’t always watch Lovers in Paris since I’m not exactly a big fan of Kristina Cassandra’s acting.  But I like Zanjoe Marudo (kahit ano pang sabihin ninyo) and because I’m addicted to Dahil May Isang Ikaw, I watch LIP on a semi-regular basis while waiting for DMII.

Last December 7, I tuned in and caught the scene where Maricar Reyes (Karen) wakes up to find herself in a hospital and paralyzed from the waist down.   Oh my gad, she’s a very good actress ha, promise!  Watch this clip and see for yourself.

Oh, I’m sure naka-relate!

In other news, I think everyone saw Pinoy Big Brother’s Melason loveteam yesterday.  My teenage niece was jumping and screaming while watching.  I kept getting calls and text messages from friends who were so kilig/natatawa at the very cute love story of Melissa and Jason.

San bang galing probinsiya si Jason? Batangas ba? I think plus pogi points ‘yung malambing niyang punto.

I also admire Jason for his honesty, especially when he said that though he likes Melai/Isay/Melissa (ano ba talaga ang nickname niya?), he wants to make sure that he’d still feel the same way once they’re outside the PBB house.  I say that’s very wise and very honest, di ba?

Ang kaso lang, once they’re out of the house and he finds out that his feelings for Melissa aren’t very true, mukhang mawawalan ng career itong si Jason.

In other news ulit, MARTIAL LAW PA RIN NGA PALA SA MAGUINDANAO.  Ano’ng masasabi ninyo?

I know it’s probably impossible for ordinary folks like us to get past our beloved president’s numerous PSGs.  But there’s a site — Yay! Internet! — that allows us to vent our feelings of hatred towards her and finally release all the pent-up emotions we’ve been lugging around since 2001.

It is called TangInaMoGMA.co.tv, a fun and interactive site that allows us to hit GMA in the face.

The site promises to be a great stress reliever.  It even gives us the option to hit her either with our bare hands or with a stick.

CLICK HERE now to try it.  We promise you’ll feel a lot better afterwards.

A revolution is in order

24 Nov

“Screams of anguish pierced the farming village of Saniag Tuesday as police pulled bodies from a mass grave, unearthing one of the most brutal political killings in Philippine history.

A woman identified by police as the widow of local freelance journalist Napoleon Salaysay stepped up, tears welling on her eyes and gasping, to claim a cadaver whose neck had been nearly severed by a hack wound.

The dead man’s face was shattered beyond recognition with bullet wounds, and the woman identified him by the contents of his wallet.

Grabe. Ang sama, sama, sama, sama, sama ng mga taong gumawa nito.  At ang lalong masama dito, tino-tolerate ang patuloy na paggamit ng guns, goons, and gold sa mga lugar na malayo sa Manila dahil napapakinabangan din ng Malacañang.  Remember Garci?

ABS-CBN’s new station ID Noynoy Aquino’s infomercial premiered this evening after TV Patrol.

Yeah we know, most of his supporters were supporters of his mum and dad (and lil’ sis).  But I think Noynoy’s next infomercials should get out of the shadows of his parents and tell more about him and his ability to lead the country.

Whatchathink?

P.S. I like the first part of the song.

From Frank Cimatu’s Facebook:

The Hakot Evacuees in The Mansion. The evacuees, almost all Maranao traders and their families, arrived in PMA buses before President Gloria Arroyo at the mansion. After her visit, they also left in the same PMA buses. The gates are closed. The stories are written. Ayos!

Where is the P10 billion allocated as the government’s “Calamity Assistance and Rehabilitation Effort” fund under the General Appropriations Act?

1 Oct

“A sterling example of the inutile workings of the administration virtually screams to be noted in the National Relief Operations Center that the President had earlier ordered set up in Malacañang. It was clearly intended as a dramatic gesture—a flinging open of the Palace gates to the suffering horde—and an attempt to offset the image of an administration sufficiently indifferent as to dine lavishly in New York while Maguindanao, or at least parts of it, burns. (What was it a Malacañang mouthpiece said then? That the President can’t be expected to chow down on a hotdog in Central Park, or something to that effect?)

By accounts, the President was instantly on annoyance mode on Tuesday when she saw a ragged mass of people waiting outside the Palace gates, and ordered that they be allowed to enter. Imagine what went on in the mind of the elderly man on a wheelchair when, at the end of the winding queue at the National Relief Operations Center, he was handed hamburger buns.”

– From today’s editorial of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

Huwat?! I bet that hamburger bun’s the overpriced Ben’s Burjer.

But seriously, Malacanang should have served them Sabrett even though Cerge Remonde condescendingly asked if we expect the president to eat at a hotdog stand.

Pang-hot-looking people lang kasi ang Sabrett.

Ninoy’s letter to Noynoy

August 25, 1973

Fort Bonifacio

11:30pm

Mr. Benigno S. Aquino III

P E R S O N A L

My dearest Son:

One of these days , when you have completed your studies I am sure you will have the opportunity to visit many countries. And in your travels you will witness a bullfight.

In Spanish bullfighting as you know, a man – the matador – is pitted against an angry bull.

The man goads the bull to extreme anger and madness. Then a moment comes when the bull, maddened, bleeding and covered with darts, feeling his last moment has come, stops rushing about and grimly turns his face on the man with the scarlet “muleta” and sword. The Spaniards call this “the moment of truth.” This is the climax of the bullfight.

This afternoon, I have arrived at my own moment of truth. After a lengthy conference with my lawyers, Senators Jovito R. Salonga and Lorenzo M. Tanada I made a very crucial and vital decision that will surely affect all our lives: mommie’s, your sisters’, yours and all our loved ones as well as mine.

I have decided not to participate in the proceedings of the Military Commission assigned to try the charges filed against me by the army prosecution staff. As you know, I’ve been charged with illegal possession of firearms, violation of RA 1700 otherwise known as the “Anti-Subversion Act” and murder.

You are still too young to grasp the full impact of my decision. Briefly: by not participating in the proceedings, I will not be represented by counsel, the prosecution will present its witnesses without any cross examinations, I will not put up any defense, I will remain passive and quiet through the entire trial and I will merely await the verdict. Inasmuch as it will be a completely one-sided affair, I suppose it is reasonable to expect the maximum penalty will be given to me. I expect to be sentenced to imprisonment the rest of my natural life, or possibly be sent to stand before a firing squad. By adopting the course of action I decided upon this afternoon, I have literally decided to walk into the very jaws of death.

You may ask: why did you do it?

Son, my decision is an act of conscience. It is an act of protest against the structures of injustice that have been imposed upon our hapless countrymen. Futile and puny, as it will surely appear to many, it is my last act of defiance against tyranny and dictatorship.

You are my only son. You carry my name and the name of my father. I have no material wealth to leave you. I never had time to make money while I was in the hire of our people.

For this I am very sorry. I had hopes of building a little nest egg for you. I bought a ranch in Masbate in the hope that after ten or fifteen years, the coconut trees I planted there would be yielding enough to assure you a modest but comfortable existence.

Unfortunately, I had to sell all our properties as I fought battle after political battle as a beleaguered member of the opposition. And after the last battle, I had more obligations than assets.

The only valuable asset I can bequeath to you now is the name you carry. I have tried my best during my years of public service to keep that name untarnished and respected, unmarked by sorry compromises for expediency. I now pass it on to you, as good, I pray, as when my father, your grandfather passed it on to me.

I prepared a statement which I intend to read before the military commission on Monday at the opening of my trial. I hope the commission members will be understanding and kind enough to allow me to read my statement into the record. This may well be my first and only participation in the entire proceedings.

In this statement, I said: Some people suggested that I beg for mercy from the present powers that be. Son, this I cannot do in conscience. I would rather die on my feet with honor, than live on bended knees in shame.

Your great grandfather, Gen. Servilliano Aquino was twice condemned to death by both the Spaniards and the American colonizers. Fortunately, he survived both by a twist of fate.

Your grandfather, my father was also imprisoned by the Americans because he loved his people more than the Americans who colonized us. He was finally vindicated. Our ancestors have shared the pains, the sorrows and the anguish of Mother Filipinas when she was in bondage.

It is a rare privilege for me to join the Motherland in the dark dungeon where she was led back by one of her own sons whom she lavished with love and glory.

I ended my statement thus: I have chosen to follow my conscience and accept the tyrant’s revenge.

It takes little effort to stop a tyrant. I have no doubt in the ultimate victory of right over wrong, of evil over good, in the awakening of the Filipino.

Forgive me for passing unto your young shoulders the great responsibility for our family. I trust you will love your mother and your sisters and lavish them with the care and protection I would have given them.

I was barely fifteen years old when my father died. His death was my most traumatic experience. I loved and hero-worshipped him so much, I wanted to join him in his grave when he passed away. But as in all sorrows, eventually they are washed away by the rains of time.

In the coming years, I hope you will study very hard so that you will have a solid foundation on which to build your future. I may no longer be around to give you my fatherly advice. I have asked many of your uncles to help you along should the need arise and I pray you will have the humility to drink from their fountain of experiences.

Look after your two younger sisters with understanding and affection. Viel and Krissy will need your umbrella of protection for a long time. Krissy is still very young and fate has been most unkind to both of us. Our parting came too soon. Please make up for me. Take care of her as I would have taken care of her with patience and warm affection.

Finally, stand by your mother as she stood beside me through the buffeting winds of crisis and uncertainties firm and resolute and uncowed. I pray to God, you inherit her indomitable spirit and her rare brand of silent courage.

I had hopes of introducing you to my friends, showing you the world and guide you through the maze of survival. I am afraid, you will now have to go it alone without your guide.

The only advice I can give you: Live with honor and follow your conscience.

There is no greater nation on earth than our Motherland. No greater people than our own. Serve them with all your heart, with all your might and with all your strength.

Son, the ball is now in your hands.

Lovingly,

Dad

I wonder if Ninoy also has a letter for Kris. I wanna read! (Snoopy)
