the acquittal

  Whaat?  I just can’t believe it!  Cassey Anthony has been acquitted for the murder of her daughter, Cayleen Anthony.  I mean, where is the justice in there?  For anyone of you who also have been following the very controvesial trial, I’m sure you feel the same way. It’s like saying that anyone can get…

hope for haiti

i was nothing but an expectator these past few weeks.  i watched the the world go by, in the thick of disaster, hunger, death and grief.   this is my time to reach out and help…. the whole world witnessed the devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake that shook and claimed hundreds and thousands of innocent lives in haiti. …

lessons from the aftermath

nothing ever prepared for what i witnessed this morning on my way to work.  the shuttle that i was on passed thru provident village and led its way to riverbanks enroute to ortigas.  its one thing to see typhoon images in tv and another seeing these images in the flesh. swept-away houses, mud laiden streets,…

a storm’s coming

because i was not able to watch last night’s news, i didn’t know that there’s a storm.  it was a typical morning to me.  a bit too cloudy but i suspected nothing amiss.  i suppose the sudden heavy rain the night before was a sign. it was also only when i got to work i…

disturbingly true

i thought i’ve seen and heard all the good, the bad, and ugly hollywood has to offer, i’ve been stomped.  this one is a show stopper.                                            im talking about david carradine.  ever heard of him?  he’s the kung-fu guy and one of the lead actors in the “kill bill” series.  well, news of his…

the curious case of dr. kho

a hectic schedule was not a hindrance for me to inject some funfare in my turf.  the recent showbiz hullabaloo proved to be quite an entertainment to me.  i am talking about the very popular and now notorious mr. hayden kho sextravaganza. up until last weekend, my knowledge about the “scandal” was formed from bit…

Dora’s Makeover

Has anyone seen Dora The Exploerere cartoon lately?  Well, i have and Im shocked.  She’s all grown up!  Frankly, I don’t like the makeover.  She’s not the girl my kids grew up with and adore.                                                    I did a little research. I found out that some mothers were disturbed by the new look as well….

Pictures Gone Wild

I totally understand international actress Zhan Ziyi’s outrage when racy pictures of her and her beau invaded the net some days ago.  The pictures were taken during the couple’s beach holiday.   Ziyi and her Isreali boyfriend (who was once linked to Kate Moss) where oblivious of the world around them, they never noticed paparazzi taking shots showing…

Justice, anyone?

The recent release of Claudio Tehankee has once again weakened my faith in our justice system.  Imagine, letting out a cold blooded murderer who has been sentenced to life imprisonment.  Whatever possessed the President to issue such a clemency?  I am totally dismayed.  Just the thought of how our Mr. Bad Guy was discreetly released…

Free At Last!

Ive been closely following the kidnapping case of Journalist Ces Drilon and her camera man.  Her ten day capitivity has been such ordeal Im sure she and her companions will never forget for the rest of their lives.  But as I read the stories, I realized that such unfornate event has been a platform for…

In the News Today

My theory on the Batangas “shoot out” proved to be right, afterall.  Today’s news report confirmed findings made by the Commission on Human Rights (CHR).  In the investigation of the brutal killings of the 3 suspects, CHR Chair Leila De Lima was quoted in saying There was no shoot out.  There was reasonable certainty to believe…

Cabuyao Bank Robbery Update

For some reason, the news on the Cabuyao bank robbery and brutal killings didn’t sit well on me. Sprawled all over today’s paper is the headline, BATANGAS COPS KILL 4 IN RCBC FOLLOW-UP OPERATION. An article published in the Phil. Star confirmed reports on the shoot-out: TANAUAN CITY, Batangas – Police have killed four suspects…
