The KRISTA RANILLO OF TIGER WOODS

Dear insansapinas,
TIGER WOODS dilemma

First there was the single-vehicle crash that happened in the early morning.Then the news that the wife had to use a golf  club to extricate him out of the car drew suspicion to the investigating cops.
Tapos ayaw magsalita ni Woods. Makipaghalikan ba naman sa puno yong kaniyang mamahaling Subaru. Mas matibay yong puno.


photocredit: huffingyon post


Pero tongues started wagging as gossip-focused tabloid as well as online newspapers blamed it on the couple's spat which stemmed from the alleged affair of Tiger Woods with a certain Rachel  Uchitel.


HALA


Hindi ko pinapansin ang story na ito kaya lang tapos na ang init ng iskandalo ni Letterman at ito naman ang pinagpipiyestahan ng mga tsismoso at tsismosa. 


Kaya ito nakikigossip din ako sa mala Krista Ranillong intriga sa paborito kong golfer.


Sino ba ang babae? 


Ito siya.


Galing din siya sa buena familia kaya deny to death kaagad siya at bantang magdedemanda.




She denied the National Enquirer story that sparked the rumors to BlackBookMag.com as well:
"I totally deny the Enquirer story. They did contact me about it, but they didn't use any of my quotes or any of the information I gave them. They make it sound like I said those things, but it's all other people saying I said things."

O di va not only in the pilipins.

Cirque du Soliel Type of Circus, Color coding and Stars Galore

Dear insansapinas,


You might ask what is my excuse in getting "bananas" with the candidates who filed their CoCs today, Monday.


I'll tell you. I checked our larder today and the freezer compartment of the ref and I made a resolution which does not have to pass Congress..that is everything with the date stamp that it has already "died' should be buried. Excuse me....am still reading forensic inspired novels. This time, it is about entomology. The study of insect. The specialization of my favorite CSI bugman, Gil Grissom who left CSI to marry Sarah Sidle. Ang mga traidor. I ws so broken-hearted tht I did not watch the series again except for CSI:NY.Anyway nakuha ko na ang aking salamin kaya nakita ko na hindi pala ipis yong nasa ilalim ng sink kung hindi balat ng butong pakwan at hindi pala nunal yong nasa paa ko kung hindi calcified black choc. Yuck.


So the canned tuna which was supposed to be consumed late 2008 has to go...the ready-to-cook- pork chop which tastes like cardboard when fried joined the plastic of rejects. In politics, the " rejects" of the society are filing their candidacies.Holly Molly. Ganoon na ba talaga ng perception nila s Filipino voters. Sabi nga ni Pamatong siya lang ang may utak kaya nakakuha siya ng 92 per cent sa Bar Exam sa US. Huh? Di ba balita ko nakuha niya ang title dahil meron pa noong reciprocity agreement between Phils. And States. Untog ulo. untog ulo.


 Pero bago ako maligaw, tuloy natin ang aking topic tungkol sa mga Candidates




Other writers used political circus to describe the election in 2010. I prefer to use Cirque du Soliel kasi colorful ang kanilang mga costume ng mga sirkero. Ang ating politics din ay naglalaro sa kulay, yellow, red, orange and green. Pati characters colorful din. At ang mga mayayamang hindi naman nagsusuot ng costume ay napapasuot tuloy sila.
Kagaya ni Gibo.

He reminds me of the Burger King TV commercial. Yong hari na biglang sumusulpot kahit nasaan ka. Patawarin. Pasintabi sa mga Igorot. Noong isang araw naman si Bongbong Marcos at Manny Villar, nakasalakot. Si Loren loren Sinta naman ay Muslim princess.


COLOR CODING


Wearing yellow shirt, the teleevangelist and head of the JIL, Eddie Villanueva filed his candidacy together with his Bangon Party candidates. He is still running under Bangon Party, the same party which he used when he run for Presidency in 2004. Hanggang ngayon di pa siya nakakabangon.

Villanueva filed his candidacy together with his vice presidential candidate, lawyer Perfecto Yasay, also a former chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and his senatorial candidates—former GMA 7 reporter Alex Tinsay, former ABS-CBN anchor Kata Inocencio, lawyer Ramon Ocampo of Iglesia ni Cristo, Dr. Israel Virgines of the Seventh Day Adventist and Dr. Noldi Alonto from the Muslim community.


Sa loob ng COMELEC , nagkasalubong sila ng party naman ni Villar na ang suot ay orange. Nahati ang mga tao ngayon sa dalawang kulay, orange at yellow. Parang tindahan ng prutas, orange at bananas. Buti na lang nakapagfile n si Noynoy na nakayellow rin kung hindi baka mga fruit flies na naman ang pumasok. Eh ang dami ng butterflies sa loob. Yon bang paiba-iba ng party.

Ang problema ay si Erap  inakusahan si Villar na nanggaya sa kulay nila. 


Ito naman ang mga kandidato ni Villar.
The party’s senatorial lineup composed of Senator Pia Cayetano, Ilocos Norte Representative Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr., Adel Tamano, Susan Ople, Gwendolyn Pimentel, and Ramon "Mon-Mon" Mitra, detained Colonel Ariel Querubin and MIRIAM  SANTIAGO (ang hinananap ni LEE) at si Bong Revilla.

Nagdrive si Erap ng jeep  papunta sa COMELEC dahil akala ko kasama niya lahat ang kaniyang First Ladies. Hindi pala. Kasi si Guia Gomez na nanay ni JV ang tatakbo sa San Juan at si JV naman ay tatakbong Congressman. Hanep ano. may mayor, may congressman at may senador. at kung mananalo si Erap. God help us from Estradas. They are all over. Ngiii.



Estrada was joined at the Liwasang by his running mate, Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, Senator Jinggoy Estrada, Ambassador Ernesto Maceda, San Juan Mayor JV Ejercito, Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco, comedian Bayani Agbayani, and actor Tirso Cruz III.

Besides Enrile, the other Estrada senatorial candidates present were Agusan del Sur Rep. Rodolfo “Ompong” Plaza and former Negros Occidental Rep. Jose Apolinario “Jun” Lozada.



Bago siya nakadrive, naumpog ang ulo niya sa jeep. Tssk tsssk. halatadong may driver. Kaya ba bago na ang reason ng kaniyang pagtakbo. Dahil daw sa kaniyang ina. Ang mga ina talaga. hmmmm.


Stars Galore


Syempre wala pa masyado ang mga artista diyan. Bukas siguro pagfile ni Gibo at ni Edu. Pero nandoon ang mga artistang endorsers.


Eh ano kung iniindorse ni Dolphy at ni Willie Revillame si Villar. Halos wala na namang  followers si Dolphy at si Revillame naman ay dahil magkasosyo yata sila.

KALOKA MOMENTS- POLITICS IS ONE BIG MENTAL ASYLUM FOR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

Dear insansapinas,
We are a culture that practices blame-giving. We always find a scapegoat for simple and complicated problems. Best of all, we look for someone or something to blame because of our ineptness or inadequacy. I AM GUILTY YOUR HONOR. SO PROSECUTE ME.
Meron naman akong abugada, si biyay.


I called up the optical store last Saturday if my glasses are ready. The guy said yes. But I was not feeling well or was just lazy to break my momentum by getting dress and going to the store. Sunday, i felt the urge to find out if there are still Black Friday goods that are still low-priced on my way to the optical store. DAMN. The store was closed for Sunday and I did not even bother to pick up the phone to call or check the office hours.

KAINIS 


If my eldest brod is here, he will give me a " freezing stare" that would melt an iceberg in the Arctic region. That's what he was when we were younger and he was acting as the head of the family. He did not nag. He simply made his eyes big and continue to stare not unless you compete with him for a pissing/staring contest by wearing shades and goosedown jacket.


The bottomline of my blamegame ek ek is that I am blaming the newspaper for giving 15 second fame to the nuisance candidates for the 2010 presidential election. It makes my mind "goes out for lunch" for a while to escape the banana moments. AHHHHHH.


MALOLOKA AKO.



By allowing the people who have no capacity to engage in a national campaign (di ba nila nadigest ang sinabi ni Villar, pakiulit mo nga Lee, pag wala kang bilyon, wala kang karapatang magkandidato pagkapresidente) COMELEC encourages all colorful if not totally unhinged individuals who waste the Comelec time by allowing them to register. Who sez that democracy is dead in the Philippines?


Look at this guy who has nothing but the bling bling. He's educated since he's a dentist daw. Why did he file for candidacy? To show off his gold. Lalabasan ko rin siya ng gold. Gold Fish. Nyahahaha.


Syet...masisira ang forensic profiling  ko dito.

Isa pa yong  karpintero . Buti hindi niya sinabing galing siya sa Nazareth at siya ay pinako sa krus dahil matutuluyan talaga akong maging cuckoo. Pero siya raw ang  “79th general of the world” and that he “owns the Philippines. Hindi kaya ito nahulog habang nagkakarpintero ?


KALOKA. 


 Merong woman candidate na 81 years old, (ano na lang ang gagawin nito sa Malacanan? may kasunod na wheel chair at tagapalit ng diaper. Haller COMELEC bakit pinapayagan ito. Toink toink toink.

Ito namang isang babae pangalan ay Mary Lou Estrada,(ito talaga nuisance kasi ESTRADA eh) ay 41-year-old business owner  na magbibigay daw siya ng P 327 pesos a day sa lahat ng Filipino.

KALOKA

And of course ang kasabayan ni Pamatong sa taunang pagfile ng CoC. Si Amay Bisaya.

Wahowahowahowahowaho.

Sorry, nagtititiling na ang orasan ng aking utak. Matino pa kaya ako? Abangan.

Women Power, Nuisance Candidate and Political Dynasties

Dear insansapinas,
I was asking the little scarecrow that hangs in the corner of my desk and now the little snowman that hangs in my table lamp about the news that I read for the past six days. No comment. Playing safe guys, eh. Even my stuff toy cat would not give me a reaction. Great!!!. In this little world of mine, I am the only one who is thinking. Brrrrr (makes raspberry sound).



1. Noynoy and Roxas filed their CoCs.


Look who were with them:


Aquino was also accompanied by his sisters Balsy, Pinky, Viel, and television host and actress Kris.

Judy Araneta-Roxas, mother of Mar Roxas, and broadcast journalist and Roxas’ wife Korina Sanchez, were also present at the Comelec.

 Methinks, why was the mother of Mar Roxas in the Comelec to accompany the son?  (slap self).  but of course to give moral support, silly. Takot bang baka umurong na naman. (slap self again. timigil ka na). How did Korina feel to be with the MIL ?
My ex-hubby used to tell me that the MOTHER-IN-LAW problem  is a universal phenomenon regardless of culture, race and religion. 

Masaya silang dalawa, sila'y magkasama.

Well I expect that the sisters of Noynoy Aquino would be there especially Kris Aquino who does not fail to remind the public that she is helping him financially. Her son is coming up with another album.





MANILA, Philippines -- (UPDATE 3) His voice cracking in front of the TV cameras, an emotional former Public Works Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane Jr. withdrew from the presidential race, on Sunday, citing the lack of funds to mount a nationwide campaign.
Speaking at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, a teary-eyed Ebdane also hinted that some people who had promised to support him failed to fulfill their word.

Wow! wala akong masabi. Parang gusto ko tuloy pahiram yong kumot namin ni Lee na pampahid ng luha.
Bakit naman kailangan niyang umiyak? Tahan na bunso. Ngayon lang ba niya nalaman na kailangan talaga nang malaking pera para kumandidato?  Di ba kaya nga nagwithdraw win si Escudero dahil umurong rin ang mga nagpramis sa kaniya ng pera. Pramis ha? is meant to be broken especially if your survey does not even show one digit. Never mind Gilberto Teodoro. He is a Cojuangco.



 3. Ely Pamatong rides again

MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATE) A perennial candidate for president has filed his bid yet again at the Commission on Elections office in Manila.
Wearing black, Ely Pamatong filed his certificate of candidacy Friday, with his own group of supporters, the Philippine-USA Guerrilla.
Siya yong nag-utos sa kaniyang mga kampon na lagyan ng pako ang kalsada. Siya yong nagpapramis sa kanyang mga alagad na magiging American citizen pag napanalo niya ang kaso niyang gawing State ang Pilipinas. OO insan hanggang ngayon marami pang naniniwala niyan. Sa San Francisco sikat siya sa pagiging notorious.

 4. The Political Dynasties Live 


I can not find the link but I saw in the news that socialite Baby Arenas (the one rumored to Fidel Ramos) who claimed that she supported the former president accompanied his son Romeo Arenas to file his CoC for representative of a district in a province in Visayas. He could no longer run in Pangasinan. His sister is a congresswoman in Pangasinan. Gina de Venecia, the wife of JDV and the stepmother of Joey de Venecia (who?) is also running for Congress in the fourth district of the province. 


Talking about political dynasties. 


5. Clamor for GMA to run

MANILA, Philippines— Outgoing President Macapagal-Arroyo is not about to hang her political gloves just yet.

A key political supporter eager to keep Ms Arroyo in government service announced on Sunday that the President had been finally “convinced” to seek a congressional seat in Pampanga in response to an “overwhelming clamor” from local leaders.


Wow, kailangan pa siyang pilitin, itulak at i-convince. Buti di siya nakipagkita sa mga Sisters. O di va katuwa.

Deadliest Catch and Forensic Science

Dear insansapinas,
For the last few days, I 've been eating dead carcasses of poultryslashfarmresidents aka chicken and turkey. Sorry for the use of the term "carcasses". I am on a forensic overload after reading two novels of Kathy Reichs--the producer and the real persona of Temperance Brennan of the series BONES and watching CSI. At least English ang gamit ko hindi Tagalog kung hindi isusulat ko bang nawili akong kumain ng bangkay ng manok kagaya noong retrato ni Lee na nakalutang sa sabaw ang hindi inahitang manok na inihain sa kanila sa restaurant.  Yuk.






So last night, I decided to eat "mummified"... ooops...sardines in oil and spice for a change while watching the Deadliest Catch reality show. The episode showed how the fishermen catch crabs in the Arctic Region with all those big waves and ice floes that their boats have to surmount.. It is a high risk job that there is a fast turnover of deckhands. Now I know why crabs are expensive. I still prefer our local crab. Hindi yong alimasag kung hindi yong alimango.

Thanksgiving Carnage

Dear insansapinas,
It had been more than 24 hours that I did not blog. For some, that is no big deal. For me who makes at least 2 or 3 posts a day, an absence of a blog entry is indicative of my status, healthwise....muscle pain which prevents me from sitting for a long time...more blurred eyes that give me furrowed lines between my two eyes due to too much squinting  or simply stomach cramps that make me burp at the rate of 60 per hour.


I like to blog but I can't. Although my blog entries appear to be serious at the beginning, my punchline which is  often funny (that's what I think) at the end to soften the impact of a horrific event or to make fun of a stupidity of some people-claiming-to-have-an-IQ-of-Mensa-community-of-nerds will be of bad taste.


Yesterday, much as I would like to blog funny anecdotes, I can't.  I was trying to look for the reason why a man who was even invited for the Thanksgiving dinner could kill his relatives that included children and pregnant woman.


Authorities in Florida were searching Saturday for a man police said opened fire on his family after Thanksgiving dinner and killed four people, including his pregnant sister and a 6-year-old cousin who was sleeping in her bed.

I searched among the psychology-inspired novels which explain why people snapped. 

Except for this statement in the news, I could not find a more substantial reason for such a deadly outrage :
There had been "ongoing resentment" in the family, but investigators weren't sure what specifically prompted the shooting, officials said.

One of James Patterson novels is about a person who simply kills without any reason. He made it appear that he was a non-conformist of the lifestlye of the rich and famous. The "bread crumbs" that he leaves in his trail pointed to some evidence that he
was a veteran who must have been a victim of a war-syndrome.

At the end, it was just his conscience which haunted him in leaving his brother to his father when his parents separated that made him kill the people who he felt was the reason why his brother committed suicide. Others who died were just collateral damage.

So this Thanksgiving rampage makes me think that there is no place where you're safe. The Fort Hood massacre last month was inside a military zone while this incident happened in the safety of the home of the victims.

I can do nothing but pray and shed tears in the same manner that I shed much but for revulsion  on the knowledge of how the women victims of the Maguindanao massacre were killed. Too much savagery too send a message of terror.

Even animals cry for their fallen friends so let me just say... 


Ahhhhhhhh

Black Friday , the CNN Hero Telecast, the Thanksgiving Celebration and White House Crashers

Dear insansapinas,

CNN Heroes Telecast 


I still have to master how to use  eyedrop. Pag ginamit ko, either papatak sa pisngi ko, sa eyelids o sa gilid ng mata. Never yatang pumasok sa mata. Pero ngayong gabi, swak siya kaya mamasa-masa ang aking mata. Palusot pa. Eh dalawang oras akong nakatanghod sa TV para sa CNN Heroes Telecast. Basa rin ang kamiseta ko, hindi naman sa patak ng luha kung hindi sa tubig na lumigwak galing sa baso pag-inom ko. Palusot ulit.
Sige na nga hikbi,hikbi, hikbi.

Bilib  ako sa mga taong napiling heroes,  kasama si Efren Penaflorida syempre. Isang hero doon na taga Indonesia ay may ampon na 48 aside from tatlo nilang anak. 

Naalala ko tuloy ang aking lola na kung buhay siguro, hero  din dahil may isandaan yata ang kaniyang inampon noong  malakas pa siya at matagumpay na businesswoman .


I felt humbled. Napatunayan lang na hindi kailangang maging Bill Gates ka o Warren Buffett para maging pilantropo o makatulong sa kapwa. At hindi mo kailangang maging relihiyoso (take note one presidentiable) o kaya ay tumakbo ng public office. (take note another presidentiable) para maging hero.


Turkey pa rin



Anyway, turkey pa rin ang kinain namin. Hindi nga lang yong buo kung hindi yong pinilas-pilas na. Masarap din siya. Kasama ang mga  kabarkada ng turkey pag siya ang nakahain sa lamesa, kagaya ng mashed potato, pasta, cornbread, sweet corn at apple pie. 


Ang mga kaibigan kong bumati ay nagsabi na magluluto sila ng lumpiang shanghai, embutido, pancit, adobo at dinuguan. Ang mga lintek, pinaglaway pa ako. 


Black Friday


Hindi ito ang Good Friday. Ito ang Friday after Thanksgiving kung saan bagsak ang presyo at ang mga shoppers ay nakapila na sa labas ng stores bago ito bumukas ng alas 4 o alas singko o alas seis.


Binigyan ako ng aking kapatid ko ng shopping flyers mula sa isang electronic store. Balak pala niyang sumama sa mga taong makikipagbalyahan pagbukas ng mall sa mga shoppers bukas.


Panay naman ang check ko sa mga items na gusto ko.  Baka sakaling makaabot pa siyang meron pang available na item. Kasi ang ibig  sabihin ng limited supplies ay baka isa lang ang item na kanilang ibabargain sale.


Wala rin silang raincheck. Siguro, ayaw nilang bumaha. ehek.

White House crashers

Medyo kapalmuks ang mag-asawang party crashers sa state dinner party na ibinigay ni President Obama sa Prime Minister ng India.
Hindi sila imbitado, nakalusot sila at nilagay pa sa Facebook ang kanilang mga retrato at sila raw ay imbitado. (Facebook na naman)  
Yon pla ay marami silang kaso na involved ay kaperahan.

Akala ko pa naman sa pelikula lang nangyayari ito kagaya noong Wedding party Crashers nina Owen Wilson.

Gusto kong sumigaw ng Darna

Dear insansapinas,


Scene (I do not know)
Act: : (I do not bother to know).


Actor: I left my momma to pursue this woman...now I miss my mother.
Woman enters the scene with a letter that she handed to the man. The Man read it and howled.
"My momma, she's dead". 

He got up and reached for a gun to kill himself. He changed his  mind. Instead, he sung. Nanginginig na boses. From the dark, the silhouette of a man playing a violin stood from the foot of the stage.
Yan yong sinasabing. Play the violin na nga.


No this is not real.


I am watching a Godfather marathon. It was a scene where the young Vito Corleone was watching an opera or a stage play. 

For the first time, I got interested watching the movie. The first time, I watched it, I do not know what the movie was all about. Yeah I
know that it was violent. I can not understand what MAFIA is. The next time I watched it from the AMC Channel (I have not even watched Part 2 and 3, so sue me), I have already watched several organized  crime-inspired movies so more or less I know that the big families of the Dons were always treated with respect especially the women and children. Still I did not finish the movie.



The reason I got interested in the Godfather is because of the massacre in MAGUINDANAO. There are the same elements of revenge, power struggle, carnage and decades of loathing and warlordism.

At the same time, I am reading a novel about power struggle for control of the drug trade by organized crime of bikers in Canada that led to so many deaths of members and innocent bystanders. It is a fiction I know but it gives me the answer why these people are not afraid to kill. Given the arms and the power, they enjoy the control over many people thru threats and murders as authorities seemed inadequate to protect the civilians. They can not just make arrests on the basis of circumstantial evidence. High calibre and expensive lawyers are hired  to question the processes from arrests to gathering of evidences. Witnesses are silenced...even if they're relatives.


One statement that is similar to a comment that was posted in my blog which I did not publish had this message:

Why not let these sociopaths kill each other as self-regulation?  One character that had the same idea with mine articulated the reason why the authorities can not just watch in the sideline or collect dead bodies  and say buti nga saiyo because there are innocent people who are included in the carnage...like the journalists, the lawyes and there may even have witnesses in the case of Maguindanao.



Again, I did not finish the movie part 2. It was just beginning and my eyelids felt romantic that the upper would like to kiss the lower eyelids. I looked at the clock and I realized that I was awake since 4:00 AM today.



Before I took my forty winks, I remember the question posed by the anthropologist/main character of the novel, Tempe Brennan...what were the feelings when the victims were being killed...when they were being tortured...did they hope that someone is going to come to save them?


And before I finally had fallen to the dreamland, I remember when I was young and had just watched DARNA movie. For several days, I fantasized that I am the flying heroine minus the red two piece suit that's had been shrinking  as new movie stars tackle the role...and I saved people who were about to be killed by humans, aliens and monsters.

I was always brought back to planet Earth by my nanny-cousin who woud pull the piece of cloth that I used as my cape.

"Hanap ng hanap ang auntie...mo sa kaniyang tapis, ito lang pala saiyo. Tingnan mo hindi tuloy makalabas sa kuwarto". 



Kurot sa singit. Aray.

THANKSGIVING and the story of Turkey

 Dear insansapinas,
HAPPY THANKSGIVING !!!


photocredit: MSNBC
my caption:
Turkeys: Ignore the people looking at us.  They feel grateful and they slaughter us for their dinner. Humans, cannibals!!!

If you want to know why turkeys are preferred during Thanksgiving, read this. 

We're not eating turkey this year, Honestly, I prefer its smaller relatives.  I will try ordering Peking Duck instead. Cholesterol laden fowl but tastes great.


Turkeys remind of the days when I came home from work hauling the five lb uncooked turkey as give-away for the employees.  If no one wanted the dressed turkey, I was forced to cook it for hours Wednesday night,  Since Thanksgiving is like Christmas in the Philippines where families prefer to bond with families, no one came to eat the poor bird. It became a resident of my freezer for 12 months until another one replaced it. 

In the meantime, trout, tilapia, salmon became its roommates in the freezer compartment. The seafood families came and went and the turkey stood its ground in the corner occupying at least more than one fourth of the freezer.

Like an awardee in a popularity contest where the winner wins because she arm-twisted, coerced relatives and gave friends the guilty complex if they are not going to vote for her, I like to express my thanks to: (violin start playing plez).


1. being sick - it made me realize that true friends do not exceed the number of your fingers and toes.  I thank the remaining friends who call every now and then to check me out or bring gossips of any kind.


2. being early retired - I can enjoy  reading the books that I wanted to read but can't in the past years  because my floor was literally covered with  spreadsheets waiting to be analyzed and reports prepared for both my employer and the business. Bed for me was like a mirage. I can also watch reruns of TV series which I was able to watch either the beginning or the ending because either I have to leave early or come home late in the night.

3. for the people who made my life miserable (angbossnagustokongalisinnoondahilbukingkosiyasakaniyang-

I also thank them for driving me to move on and get better opportunities when I became complacent to my status.


Lahat sa kanila, mapurga sana kayo ng turkey. gobble gobble gobble.

Massacre sa Maguindanao at ang mga Presidentiables

 Dear insansapinas,


Wala akong iniindorsong kanditato. Sino ba ba naman ako para magindorso? Hindi naman ako si Marian Rivera. Isa pa ayaw kong nakatali ang kamay ko o malabo ang mata ko sa mga maling ginagawa ng presidentiables. Hindi ko pa nakukuha ang aking prescription glasses.



Sa Isang Tanong Isang Sagot ng GMA 7, hindi ako naniniwala na ang pinakamagaling at pinakamabilis sumagot ang pinakamagaling na presidentiable. Tingnan mo si Chiz Escudero. Noon, hindi pa nakakaisang sentence ang nagtanong, isang chapter na ang sagot niya, walang comma, walang period at walang exclamation point.
Nasaan na siya. Walang umampon sa kaniya. Wawa naman.
Although doon sa programa makikita mo kung sino talaga ang mga nag-iisip bago ibuka nila ang kanilang bunganga. Makikita mo rin na kahit hindi makapal ang make-up, makapal din ang mukha. Muntik na akong mahulog sa aking tumba-tumga nang marinig ko ang maraming sagot kung paano ba maging hero.


Pero mga tanong na ibinato sa presidentiable (karamihan muntik ng mabukulan) ay hindi nagtetest kung ano ang capability ng kandidato para umaksyon sa isang issue na kailangan ang madaliang solution kagaya ng massacre sa Maguindanao. Tingnan natin ang mga sagot na hinango ko kay VICTORINA.


SENATOR BENIGNO AQUINO III
“We must unite ourselves in order to put an end to these killings,” Aquino said, standard bearer of the Liberal Party (LP).
Aquino said that the country’s new set of leaders should focus their efforts in curbing the worsening peace and order problem in Mindanao.
He emphasized that only by good governance can the government authorities reverse the situation in many areas of Mindanao that are often fazed with problems on rebellion, terrorism and other criminal activities.

NASA CAMPAIGN MODE SIYA. ANG GOOD GOVERNMENT NA SINASABI NIYA AY ANG TANDEM NILA NI ROXAS. 


KAHIT SINONG MORON ALAM ANG IMPORTANSIYA NG GOOD GOVERNMENT PERO SA KASONG ITO ANG HINIHINGI AY KUNG ANO ANG NARARAPAT GAWIN HABANG ANG 
ISSUE AY MAINIT PA. PARA BANG ANG SAGOT SA TANONG NA ANO ANG GAGAWIN MO PARA MAALIS ANG MANTSA SA DAMIT AT SINAGOT KA NA KAYA KAILANGAN MAG-INGAT MAMANTSAHAN. eH MAY MANTSA NA NGA ANOH. DUH.


HERMOGENES EBDANE
“The perpetrators must account for this brazen crime, and the government should do no less. Whoever is responsible for this gruesome act should be pursued endlessly and brought to justice,” Ebdane said.

GILBERT TEODORO
Teodoro urged government authorities to arrest the perpetrators whoever they may be of the mass murder in Maguindanao province.
“This goes beyond political alliances,’’ said Teodoro, standard bearer of Lakas-Kampi-CMD. He called for the arrest of Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr., the Maguindanao governor’s son, to face an impartial investigation for alleged complicity in the mass murder.

KUNG SERYOSO AT TAPAT SA KANILANG SINABI ANG 
DALAWANG DATING MAKADMINSTRASYON, GUMAWA SILA NG PARAAN PARA ANG KANILANG SUGGESTION AY MAISAKATUPARAN. OTHERWISE, BAKA TAKOT SILANG MAWALA ANGSUPORTA NILA DOON SA LUGAR NA IYON. 
BRO. EDDIE VILLANUEVA
Villanueva, standard bearer of Bangon Pilipinas Party, called on authorities to immediately put a stop to violence.

KUNG BAGA SA NILUTO, WALANG ASIN, NEXT.  

SENATOR MANNY VILLAR JR.The Nationalista Party headed by its standard bearer Senator Manny Villar and his running mate Senator Loren Legarda expressed outrage over the massacre and called on the Arroyo government to take a swift and decisive action to resolve the incident.

BAKIT KASAMA SI LOREN LEGARDA SA STATEMENT NIYA?  

Bakit wala si Erap? Siguro napagod pagtakbo  doon sa Makati Oval kasama si Binay.

ADAM LAMBERT, HAYDEN KHO AND MANNY PACQUIAO

 Dear insansapinas,

ADAM LAMBERT

Here are two  of the controversial numbers in ADAM LAMBERT's performance in the recent American Music Awards last Sunday which made him lose the opportunity to perform in the Good Morning America due to the petition of the viewers.

The simulated oral sex,,,

 and the French kiss



photos from Huffington Post.

ABC has called off Adam Lambert's Wednesday morning concert following his controversial performance on the ABC-aired American Music Awards Sunday night. CBS has picked him up, however.
During that Sunday performance, he simulated oral sex, had a dancer on a leash, flipped the bird and kissed a male band member. Lambert has since defended his act, while ABC has fielded thousands or angry calls.
A spokesperson for ABC said, "Given his controversial American Music Awards performance, we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning."
 In his interview with Ryan Seacrest he said that he's proud of what he had done.

I think the issue is not about being homophobe. Tinanggap na siyang gay kaya nga ang retrato niya sa album mas marmi pang make-up kaysa kay Good Morning America is live and is watched by people including kids who may find the acts repulsive early morning.

Me, I got no problem, I do not watch GMA and I did not like Lambert at all. I was for the two Davids in the American Idol all along.

HAYDEN KHO
Panis ng balita pero isinulat ko pa rin para alam ko ang pangyayari. Baka magtanong ako sa sarili ko na "whatever-happened-to-the case-of-appeal-to-revoke-the-license-of Kho? 

Hindi sumagot ang sarili ko dahil di ko maalala.


Noong nasa Pilipinas ako, meron kaming CPA on retainer na naalisan din ng lisensiya dahil sa mga kalokohang ginagawa.
Mas mukha pa siyang thug kaysa professional kasi. 


Manny Pacquiao


Pagkatapos magsalita si Gloria Sevilla, ang lola ni Krista Ranillo at 
ang mga write-up na gimik lang ang romansang hinimay-himay

ng mga entertainment writers, bloggers (kasama ako...ARGH) humingi ng apology si Manny Pacquaio sa Ranillo family. 

Kung  totoo nga na gimik lang yan para kumita ang pelikula ni Pacman (wala pang pelikula siyang kumita) sino man ang nagluto ng publicity stunt na yan ay dapat itali sa poste na may hantik. 

Kung hindi yan publicity, maging discrete naman sana ang involved. Yon naman talaga ang totoo, hindi ipinaparada pag totoong may mga karelasyon.  


Moral lesson of the story: (pahiram lee). basahin ninyo ang sinulat niyang social snack ng mga tao sa lugar ng hopia, tayo balut lang ang kinakain, sila iba.


Balik tayo sa moral lesson-Ang bagoong takpan mo man, aalingasaw pa rin lalo igigisa mo sa bawang at sa taba ng baboy.

Crib Recall -Iduyan mo ang Duyan ko

Dear insansapinas,
Mahigit isang milyong vribs (Kuna) ang nirerecall dahil sa ito ay hindi safe sa mga bata.


Kung titingnan mo ang simple, mahal siya dahil kilala ang brand niya. ibig sabihin, kahit mahal hindi garantiya na matibay.



Pagkatapos kong magreview sa CPA, ipinanganak ko ang aking ikalawa. Bumili kami ng kuna (crib) na maganda pa ang kulay at may feature ito na puwede mo siyang i-ugoy.
So habang nagbabasa ako ng libro o magazine at nagpapatulog, tinatalian ko ang aking paa at tinatali ko ito sa crib habang inuugoy ko. Ano bang The Hands that Rock the Cradle. Sa akin, the Feet did that. ahohoy.


Sa tibay ng kuna ay naging kama pa ito ng pasaway kong anak nang matuto na siyang ibaba ang kalahati ng side nito para siya makababa. Inalis na rin namin ang nasa ibaba na ginagamit pag-ugoy.


Nagpalipat-lipat pa ito sa mga ibang kamag-anak pagkatapos hingin ng isang malayong kamag-anak sa probinsiya na sa tibay ay ginagawang boxing arena ng mga batang pinagsasama-sama doon habang ang mga ina ay masa hagdan at naghihingutuhan at nagtitsismisan. hohoho.


Noong maliit kami, ginagawa lang ng aking ama ang kuna. Pero mas gamit namin ang duyan na gawa sa abaca.



kahit saan dinadala namin. Pag medyo mahangin at maganda ang panahon, kinakabit ito sa dalawang puno o poste. Pagkatapos gumising ang bata, matanda naman ang matutulog.


Minsan parang swing na idinuduyan ito ng mga pasaway ko ring kapatid. Sa takot mo tuloy, baba ka para sila naman ang sasakay. Tseh nila.


Sa barrio naman ang duyan ay gawa sa katsa na pinambalot ng arina, pinaputi sa pagkukula at pinagtagpi-tagpi. Pag-ihi ng bata, basa, patutuyuin lang pero amoy mo ang panghe hanggang hindi nalalabhan. hehehe

Pink Eyes

Dear insansapinas,


Hindi na ako mukhang bampira na kulang na lang ang mga pangil at ako ay tutusukin na ni Buffy, the Vampire Slayer ng kanyang kahoy na panusok. Hindi na masyadong mapula ang aking mata. Pero napunta pa rin ako sa doctor. Pareho lang naman ang sinabi na virus ang lumanding sa mata ko dahil daw baka gumagamit ako ng face towel ng iba (rolleyes left to right and right to left), o kaya nakikipagshake hands ako tapos kinakamot ko mata ko. (Nasaan ba ang magazine diyan at masampal itong aking doctor. HINDI AKO GUMAGAMIT NG FACE TOWEL ANOH. Lampin ang ginagamit ko. beh. Magaspang ang face towel. Hindi rin ako gumagamit ng sabon sa mukha ko dahil nakakadry ng skin. Kaya pinagmamalaki kong wala pa akong wrinkles sa mukha o laugh lines sa may mata. HUWAG LANG NINYONG TITINGNAN ANG BATOK KO. bwahahahah.


Turo yan ni Boots Anson Roa noong minsan naging speaker namin siya sa aming symposium tungkol sa Skin Care at Personality Development. Tingnan mo nadevelop ang personality ko. Dami kong masel. hohoho.


Hindi rin ako nakikikamay. Ano ako pulitiko. Pag bumati ako tango lang.


Ngayong hapon sa eye clinic, yong isang matandang lalaki, nagwave sa akin.Hindi ako tumango. Tumingin ako sa kaliwa, sa kanan at hinanap ko ang kaniyang binabati. Wala naman akong katabi. Ah ako pala. Siguro malabo din ang mata niya kaya napagkamalan siguro  akong kakilala niya.

Pinababalik ako next week pero nagdecline ako. Sumusobra na sila. Kahapon nga kahit malanbo ang mata ko natapos ko yong SWimsuit ni James Patterson at ang Confession number 8 sa Women Murder Club.


INGGit ka LEE? hahahaha


Gusto ko yong murder Club kasi ang lugar noon sa San Francisco kaya alam ko ang mga kalye at lugar. Saka maraming kasing kaso, tig-iisa sila although iba-iba ang profession nila.


Yon namang Swimsuit, parang may naipalabas na sa Law and Order. hindi mismong ganon pero ang mga perverts ay tuwang-tuwang  nanood ng murder sa website. Ayokong ikuwento, sampalin pa ako ni Lee pero siguro kung di ko napanood ang Law and Order hindi ako mapaniwalang may pervert na mga tao na nasisiyahan makakita ng pinapatay. Ngiii.


Nag-iisa pa naman ako sa bahay yesterday kasi may pinuntahan ang kapatid ko.pikit na pikit yong mata ko dahil di ko mabasa yong mga letra. Buti na lang iyong isang libro, Large Print. Yon bang sa mga katulad ko na ang tingin sa squirrel ay pusa. miyaw.

Jason Ivler who?

Dear insansapinas,
Hindi ako nagbasa ng news kahapon dahil nga sa mata ko kaya nagtaka ako ng pinutakti ng comments and old blog entry ko tungkol kay Jason Ivler.

photocredit:GMA
Jason  Ivler who? Siya ang pamangkin ni Freddie Aguilar na siyang suspect sa pagpatay sa anak ni Ruben Ebarle Jr.


THE Quezon City Police has finalized murder charges against Jason Ivler, stepson of an Asian Development Bank economist, after two witnesses identified him as the one who gunned down Renato Ebarle Jr. Wednesday night over a traffic altercation.
They said a foreign-looking man alighted from a blue Honda CRV with diplomatic plates (20903) and fired several shots at Ebarle, 27, who was driving a Toyota Land Cruiser.

Bakit may blog entry ako tungkol sa kaniya? Kasi siya rin ang pumatay sa kakilala kong si Nestor Ponce, dating congressman ng Manila at department undersecretary noong sinasagasaan ni Ivler ang sasakyan nito.

Dito rin lumabas ang akusasyon ng kapatid ni Freddie Aquilar na ina ni Ivler na papatayin ang kaniyang anak kaya pinatakas niya ito via Mindanao.  Kinukunsinti ba?


Ito ang sulat ninyo noon na ifinorward sa akin ni mickey.
OPEN LETTER TO ALL MOTHERS:
VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

Our son, Jason Ivler, an American
citizen on vacation here in the Philippines
was involved in a multiple-car accident in
the early hours of Sunday 8th August. Jason
 was driving our car, a Toyota Prado, with
license plate 23370. He was driving from
south to north on C5 when another car veered
in front of him, forcing him to lose control
of the Toyota and for the Toyota to crash.


Injured in the accident, Jason was placed
on a stretcher and taken by MMDA ambulance to
the nearest hospital Quirino Hospital along
Katipunan Ave. Quezon City. He was refused
emergency treatment at the hospital as it
was reported to be full. He was eventually
taken to the Asian Hospital in Alabang by
Lifeline ambulance.


Unfortunately the driver of another
vehicle involved in the accident, a Mr. Ponce,
a government official was killed and his wife
slightly injured. Mr. Ponce was driving an
Isuzu Trooper from north to south on the
same highway.

By 4:00 in the morning of the next day,
Monday, Capt. Lumbania posted PO3 Rivera to
begin a 24-hour "watch" on Jason, who was at
that time was still in great pain and under
observation, awaiting medical results. The
doctor in attendance issued a statement to
the staff of Asian Hospital that his main
concern and responsibility was the health
of his patient and that he forbade any police
interview with Jason as he was in no physical
condition to give an interview.

At 7:00 in the evening, Monday, August 9th
I questioned PO3 Rivera and asked him what he
was doing at Asian Hospital. He said he didn't
really understand why he was there, but he was
told by Capt. Lumbania of the Traffic Enforcement
Group to be there and he gave the Captain's
cellphone number. When questioned why the
authorities had posted a 24 hours watch on our
son, Captain Lumbania said it was "routine".
When questioned if the police do this to every
person involved in a car accident, he refused
to answer the question. When questioned who
gave him the order to put a 24 hour watch on
Jason, Capt. Lumbania refused to answer the
question. I called him twice more and eventually,
he gave the name of the Chief of Police of Pasig,
 Senior Superintendent Katugal. However, when
pressured PO3 Rivera gave a different answer.
He said the order came "from the top". That it
was General Valenzuela who gave the order.<p/>

I called ADB Security that evening and asked
them to contact Gen. Valenzuela to confirm the
presence of PO3 Rivera. They started calling
his office from 7:30 pm but he couldn't be
reached. I left the hospital at 10 pm that
evening and according to ADB Security Gen.
Valenzuela's office could not locate him.



Afraid and confused, I called a
friend who is a high-ranking government
official and told him what was happening.
He said, "Marlene, call ADB Security. Get
close protection for your son. I feel your
son's life is in danger." I followed his
instructions.My husband and I are very
upset that the Eastern Police District
posted a 24-hour watch on Jason. At the
time no police charges had been levied
against him. The actions of the police,
we believe, are in strong violation of
human rights.

Hindi ko alam kung ano ang human rights violation dito. Kung hindi siya guilty, bakit tumatakas siya?  

Ngayon daw ay nag-aapeal si , Marlene Aguilar-Pollard, para sumurender and anak niya.

Nakakalaya lang siya dahil sa bail sa kaso niyang pagpatay kay Nestor Ponce, Jr.

Pero hindi pa rin siya naniniwala na si Jason ang pumatay kay Ebarle.

The Nuts and Bolts of Election Season

Dear insansapinas,


Election season in the Philippines does not only bring forth balimbing fruit.During filing of certificate of candidacy, nuts become bountiful.
If they are lucky enough, they become hindi-pa-man-sikat-laos na movie stars like Mr. Eddie Gil. O di va naging recording artist pa.




Some claimed that they can make the Philippines another state of the United States and all Filipinos would become American citizen.DUH


What is interesting is that they are the first to file. Nagpapansin talaga.


Next year, the "interesting" candidates include the following:

1.Oliver Lozano, the loyalist of Marcos said that if ever he wins the presidency he will lift the sequestration of “the multi-billion gold and dollar Marcos deposits
so it can be used to solve within six months the economic crisis, poverty, hunger and rebellion. Kung hindi magreresign daw siya. DUH Coconut.




2. Rigoberto “NNN” Madera, who claimed it is God's will that he starts as president of the Philippines, then as secretary general of the United Nations, then as president of the USA until I will be crowned as Earth emperor at Mount Sinai,” said Madera.


The 61-year-old Madera said he was called by God to run for president and claimed that an October survey by the Almighty revealed that he is the number one bet for president.HINDI KO ALAM NAGCOCONDUCT DIN NG SURVEY AND DIYOS. Pili nuts.


3. meron isang 81 year old na babae from Bulancan. Hello, hello, are you nuts?


Ang ipinagtataka ko naman sa COmeLEC bakit pinagkakabalahan pa nila itong isama sa listahan.


May mga kandidato naman na hindi sinasabi na utos sa kanila ng Diyos ang magkandidato pero alam naman nilang kung si Gibo Teodoro ay 2 per cent lang ang nakukuha, baka sila, isa lang boboto kundi ang kanilang sarili.




The others who filed include 40-year-old quantum physics professor Gilbert Garcia, 46-year-old businessman Vicente Fabella, 56-year-old masseuse Josefina Murillo, 70-year-old retired teacher Peter Pelegrino, and 63-year-old licensed insurance agent Carmelo Carreon.
Also aspiring to join the presidential derby are 52-year-old financial consultant Vetallano Acosta, 49-year-old barangay chairman Daniel Magtira, 64-year-old retired teacher Ernesto Balite, and 52-year-old Min Bilad Villaflor

The Bolts


This refers to the people who bolted from one political party to another which they think is like a sinking ship. So alisan na sila at takbuhan na sa popular na political party. Let's call the roll.




Hindi pa kasama dito ang butterfly na paiba-iba nag party para lang siya ay makakandidata. 


Loren, loren sinta, puno ng papaya.
dala dala'y buslo....
