THE KOMISYON sa Wikang Filipino or KWF wants the name Pilipinas changed to Filipinas to promote the official and modern name of the country. The KWF suggests that the name ‘Pilipinas’ on letterheads, stamps, and notepads be replaced with ‘Filipinas.’ I am not that familiar with the mandate of the KWF but this has to be asked: Anong problema n’yo?

Oh, here’s another phone-in question: Wala kayong magawa?

The great Virgilio Almario, KWF Chairman was also quoted to have said, “Unang dapat burahin ang ‘Philippines.’ Tatak ito ng patuloy na pag-iral sa ating utak ng pananakop ng mga Amerikano.” If we follow this ridiculous suggestion, the University of the Philippines will become University of Filipinas. How do we cheer then for the Fighting Maroons? UF Fight! Ang lavo!

Ang UAAP magiging UAAF
Malaking froblema!

Kahit itanong n’yo pa kay Tourism Secretary Mon Jimenez…

Philippine Election 2013. We need educated voters.

One doesn’t have to be an expert to see how bad Philippine politics is, at least right now (3 issues will be the focus of this blog post: popular names dominating the senatorial surveys, election related violence and political dynasty). Now a little more than 2 weeks left before the midterm elections and the solution to clean our politics can start in May 13.

I believe the solution doesn’t depend on the leaders alone, the people also have their part, the voters, those who are entitled with the right to choose our leaders. This privilege to select our own leaders comes with a great responsibility to choose people you are going to vote as wise and clean as possible (if you know what i mean).

Popular names dominating the surveys! According to the latest sws and pulse-asia senatorial surveys there are some candidates who doesn’t have enough qualification/experience to run in a high elective post(with great responsibilities) that ranked too high in  surveys and those who are qualified and already have proved something didn’t even reach the winning circle of 12. Possibly the rankings depend on their popularity not their achievements and credentials. Thats probably because of their surname, of their popular name and people voted for the name not because they are worthy of their position. From there, we can see a big mistake, an error that the voters are committing because of irresponsible voting.

Election related violence! What are the possible causes of the said kind of violence? Hmm if you are going to think about it, some possible reasons are: because of candidates who are too desperate of the position trying to do everything to knock their opponents out of contention and/or candidates sending some message to their rival to be extra careful in fighting them. Why do I have to give some of the reasons here? Well because I want to point out that some of the candidates are too inlove with the power, the position which results in to violence. That attitude shows why they are no good for the post, if a person is willing to use dirty tricks just to win the position then that person doesn’t deserve the position, that person is not worthy of the post. The end of election related violence will come when we (the voters) choose the right person for the said position. We can be a part of the solution because putting the wrong person in a position will bring no good and worst can bring harm to the constituents of that person.

Political Dynasty! This problem has been tackled in a lot of senatorial debates and in news and current affair shows. Political dynasties in simple definition is a political condition wherein a family in a specific political district (area) is in control of almost all the elective post in the said area. It’s sad to know that in some of the poverty-stricken areas there are some families living comfortably, owning almost all of elective positions in their area and dominating the power giving sub-par efforts knowing that they don’t have to do much to secure their position. Political dynasty is definitely a problem in our country and it’s against our constitution but still very rampant in our country. The legislative wing of the government wasn’t able to pass a law about political dynasty because they can’t come up with the same definition of political dynasty. It will take a long time before they can pass a law about political dynasty especially many of them are part of political dynasties and right now we must try to end political dynasty in other possible way. If they are not performing well why do we have to support them? Voters from provinces with political dynasty must learn more, they have to be more educated in terms of the way they choose their candidates and they have to stop supporting those families. We can’t expect our legislator to pass a law about political dynasty quickly because it’s against the personal interest of many members of the legislative body. Therefore we should act now to beat political dynasty. We can’t let them monopolize the power because too much power possed by a family is scary. We have to stop them and now is the right time to do it.

THE NEED FOR EDUCATED VOTERS! A big solution for these problems are educated voters. Every voters should think wisely before voting, they shouldn’t vote according to popularity, advertistments or any other reasons without proper basis. We have to think, think and think even harder to help our country. Election day is fast-approaching, let us all be educated voters, let’s all be part of the thinking class. Yes voting is our right, it is a privilege and also it is a duty. Big duty for our country and we have to be ready for it.

Once again the time has come for us to help our country in a big way. It’s time for us to participate, to be wise and to dream for a better Philippines. Let’s do our part. God bless the Philippines.

When I was in college, I had a grand plan of how my life would turn out. I somehow thought that if I just did things right, I would become the “ultimate woman” by the time I turned 25.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he restores my soul… Psalm 23:1-3

I remember a friend of mine sharing with us, that when a shepherd makes a sheep “lie down in green pastures,” it means that when a sheep goes off wandering around, the shepherd breaks one of its legs so it lies down and stays still. If you think about it, a sheep won’t understand a shepherd if he just screams “Be still!” or “Stay calm!” He’d have to break its leg, and have it hurt, just so it does what is right. Otherwise, the sheep keeps wandering, and will forever get lost.

BREAKING: Filipinos’ hearts.

IT WAS A tough night for boxing legend Manny Pacquiao. He was knocked out in the sixth round by Juan Manuel Marquez and got 25 million dollars! Yeah, tough night.

pacmanManny Pacquiao was knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez in the sixth round of their fourth (non-title) bout. It was only the second knock down for Pacquiao – since he was knocked out by Darlene Antonino-Custodio in 2007.

Juan Manuel Marquez knocked out Manny Pacquiao in Round 6. The Filipino boxer lay motionless on the canvas for several minutes… prompting Floyd Mayweather Jr to demand that he be tested for sedatives.

Defeated US presidential candidate Mitt Romney met and shook hands with Manny Pacquiao before the fight. That handshake sealed the fate of Manny.

Reports say Mitt Romney initiated the brief conversation with Pacquiao saying, “Hello Manny, I ran for president. I lost.” And Pacquiao was like…

Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao got some verbal jabs in at members of Meralco shortly after the Elasto Painters’ thrilling victory Wednesday over the Bolts.

But Meralco coach Ryan Gregorio is taking it all with a grain of salt.

“There was no harm done. We lost and he deserves good sound bites,” Gregorio wrote in a text message to InterAKTV.

Guiao, known for his acerbic was in fine form in his post-game press conference.

“We’re ‘dedicating’ this victory to Cliff Hodge and Kelly Nabong,” said Guiao, eliciting laughter from those in attendance. The two Meralco rookies were involved in scuffles in the game, which saw several flagrant fouls and ejections.

Guiao also took a shot at Gregorio over comments made by the Meralco coach. “Coach Ryan said that the reason why they lost to us in our first meeting was because his team was complacent. Baka complacent lang…

This is mainly for the Lil-girls out there. but still we can learn from this brothers.

Recently, I have received a few messages asking similar questions, so I have decided to write this in the hopes of answering them all at once 🙂 ha! The questions have  looked like these:

What if you don’t assume but you meet this guy na kahit wala namang ginagawa e… I don’t know…

I really like him, and we’ve been great friends but just recently I’ve noticed a change in the way he treats me. We used to spend a lot of time together but now, even in the presence of our friends, he rarely speaks to me or notices me… What’s up with that? Should I subtly encourage him to pursue me or should I just let it go? He has all the qualities I’ve been praying for… We are both students.

He is my friend, and he treats me in a ‘special’ way, and even talks to me…

wonderful.

“Why does he get the promotion? I’ve been here longer and I work so hard. It should have been me.”

“How come she’s the one who gets married? She’s younger than I am! It should have been me.”

“Why does this lazy guy have it easy while I work hard for my money? I’m the good person. It should have been me.”
