Noy-Mar is my tandem to beat.


Sa wakas ay mayruon na akong napiling kandidato para sa Halalan 2010 sa Mayo 10.

Ito ay para sa posisyong Presidente at Bise-Prsidente.

Ito'y walang iba kundi ang tambalang Benigno Simeon " Noynoy" Aquino III para sa pagka-presidente ng bansa at Manuel " Mar " Roxas II para sa pagka-bise-presidente ng ating bansa mula sa Partido Liberal.

Mahalaga na malaman ng taongbayan kung sino ang ating mamanukin sa darating na Halalan 2010.

Ito ay upang himukin at hikayatin ang aking mga kapwa Pilipino na iboto rin at markahan sa balota ang mga pangalang ito na aking nabanggit. Tunay na ako'y labis na naniniwala sa tambalang ito na siyang may magagawa upang ang ating bansa ay sumulong tungo sa kaunlaran na matagal nang inaasam ng aking mga kababayan. At sa lahat ng mga kandidatong tumatakbo ngayon sa karera ng puwesto para sa pinakamatataas na posisyon sa Philippine Government, ay itong dalawa ang aking nakitaan ng potensyal na siyang magbibigay ng pagbabago para sa ating lipunan.

Una, kay Noynoy Aquino, na nakitaan ko ng sinseridad kung gaano niya ninanais na paglingkuran ang sambayanan at hatakin ito tungo sa kaunlaran. With his promise of zero corruption in his government , nakikita ko na ito ay magiging susi sa pag-unald ng mga Pilipino sa hinaharap dahil kaakibat na ng kahirapan ang labis na pagiging kurakot at gahaman ng mga taong nakaupo sa matataas na silya . Ngunit ang nagiging problema minsan ay ito; maaaring hindi nga corrupt ang isang presidente ng bansa, ngunit kadalasan na ang mga miyembro ng kanyang gabinete o sinumang mga makakasama niya sa pamumuno sa bansa ang puwedeng maging corrupt o tiwali sa pamamalakad. Kaya mahalaga na ang sinumang uupo at hahawak sa renda para sa pinakamataas na kapangyarihan sa bansa ay may "bayag" o likas na katapangan para totoong malabanan ang mga buktot na miyembrong ito ng gobyerno nang sa gayun ay tuluyang ma-eradicate o mabura ang kurakutan sa atingpamahalaan.

At pangalawa si Mar Roxas para sa pangalawang pinakamataas na puwesto sa ating lipunan, ay pinagpupugayan din naman dahil sa mga accomplishments na nagawa niya bilang isang senador ng ating bansa,katulad na lamang ng pagpapasa ng batas para sa pagbaba ng presyo ng mga gamot na alam naman ng lahat kung gaano katataas ang presyo, na naging isang malaking tulong sa mga mamamayan upang maibsan ang labis na pagpapahirap na ito ng mga parmasya sa mga taong maysakit at karamdaman.

Parehong galing sa mga tinitingalang apelyido ang dalawang kandidatong ito. Mga apelyido at pangalang kaakibat na ng kadakilaan sa ating bansa: sina Manuel Roxas , Benigno Aquino at Cory Aquino , na nagsilbi ng buong puso at walang pag-iimbot sa ating bansa bilang mga kagalang-galang na lider.

Nawa ay sundan nila ang yapak ng paglilingkod ng kanilang mga ninuno, at huwag bahiran ng putik ang malinis na imahe ng mga ito, nang sa gayun ay magpatuloy ang legacy na kanilang iiwanan sa mga mamamayang Pilipino.

Sa inyong dalwa, saludo ang pitak na ito sa inyong hangaring mapaglingkuran ng tapat ang sambayanang Pilipino.

Nawa'y dalhin ninyo ang tagumpay hanggang sa Malakanyang sa darating na halalan sa Mayo 10.

Noy-Mar is my tandem to beat.

Bumoto po ng may katalinuhan.

ABANTE-TONITE

Isa lang ang dyaryo ko dito sa Pilipinas.

Walang iba kundi ang nangungunang pahayagan sa buong Pilipinas , ang Abante-Tonite.

Matagal na akong sumusubayay sa Abante-Tonite. It seems hindi makukumpleto ang araw ko kung hindi ako nakakapagbasa ng dyaryong ito.

Kung hindi ako nagkakamali, way back 1990 pa iyon. Nung magtao ako sa isang liblib na tindahan dito sa Antipolo.

At dahil ako lang mag-isa, naisipan kong bumili ng dyaryo habang nagpapalipas ng oras sa pagbabantay. Hindi ako dati bumibili ng mga dyaryo. Pero nang masimulan kong magbasa ng Abante-Tonite, naging adik na ako sa katutunghay dito.



Especially nuong panahon na iyon na usong uso pa si Xerex Xaviera he he he.

Walang palya, as in, naglalaan ako ng perang pambili ng dyaryong ito. Kapag hindi ako nakakabili ng kopya nito, daig ko pa ang nalugi. Kaya naman, kahit malayo nuon sa kabayanan ang binabantayan kong tindahan, ay talagang sumasakay pa ako ng jeep , makahanap lamang ng nagtitinda nito duon sa sentro ng bayan. Ganun ako kaadik sa Abante- Tonite.

Enjoy din naman dahil, yung mga naiipon kong mga kopya ay naibebenta ko ulit sa mga magbobote. Nag-enjoy na ako, bumalik pa ang pinuhunan ko he he he.

Mula nuon hanggang ngayon, loyal Abante - Tonite fan tayo.

Mula pa nung ang presyo pa lang ng Abante -Tonite ay 5.00

Ngayon, 10.00 na ang bawat kopya nito. Wala na rin si Xerex sa Abante-Tonite.

But still , number one pa rin ang paborito kong dyaryong ito.

Kung hindi man ako nakakabili ng hard copy nito, siguradong, sa soft copy ko matutunghayan ang isyu niya.

Ipinagmamalaki ko na kahit papaano ay naging bahagi ako ng pahayagang ito.

Lalo na sa magiting nitong Entertainment Editor na si Jerry Olea.

Hindi na mawawala ang Abante-Tonite sa sambahayan ng bawat Pilipino. Naging parte na ito ng bawat pamilyang Pilipino. Parang pandesal na hindi puwedeng mawawala sa umagahan natin

At tulad ng pandesal, magmahal man ng magmahal ang presyo, tatangkilikin pa rin ng mga tao.

More power Abante- Tonite.

Keep on serving God and the Filipino people.

ABANTE tayo mga Pinoy!!

Usapang Goli



matagal daw ako maligo.

yan ang laging reklamo sa akin sa bahay.


pinakamadali ko siguro ang kalahating oras kapag kailangan o may emergency.yung tipo bang may naputulan ng ugat sa leeg at kailangan kong magmadali.

average ko is 1 and a half hour.


pinakamatagal? dalawang oras! pero minsan lang naman ako magdalawang oras. kapag may "special occassion" lang.


nagtataka nga ako at naggigilalas dahil ang iba kong kasama ay kayang maligo sa loob lamang ng lima hanggang sampung minuto! my God, kapag ganun lang ako kabilis maligo, pakiramdam ko ay hindi ako naligo, parang naghilamos lang ako nun! at saka kapag ganun lang kadali, pakiramdam ko ang lagkit lagkit ko, kasi para bang ang mga sabon sa katawan ko ay hindi ko pa nabanlawang mabuti!

bakit nga ba? ano nga bang ginagawa ko at ganun ako katagal sa loob ng banyo?

buweno, ito at ihahayag ko na sa buong mundo ang mga seremonyas ko sa kubeta kaya inaabot ako ng ganyan katagal sa loob nito huh:

first five minutes- ito yung testing the water time: dito tini-test ko muna kung gaano kainit o kalamig ng tubig depende sa weather. kapag kasi summer, super init ng tubig, grabe para kang nagbuhos ng bagong kulong tubig mula sa takure. kaya palalamigin ko pa yun for another five minutes kapag ganito ang senaryo. at kapag panahon naman ng taglamig tulad ng Kapaskuhan at mga buwan ng Enero at Pebrero, ay super lamig naman ng tubig, na para bang binabaran ng tipak ng yelo mula sa dinefrost na ref. ito yung time na nagpapainit pa ako ng tubig para idagdag sa balde nang sa gayun ay hindi ako manginig sa unang buhos nito tulad ng pusa kapag pinaliguan mo. purrr...... may sign of the cross pa yan....grrrr.....

and then the next 30 minutes-the throne: ito na yung time na uupo ako sa trono ng inidoro para...alam nyo na. may hawak akong libro at magbabasa sa loob. kahit ano. minsan kapag walang libro, dyaryo ang bitbit ko sa loob. dito ko ginagamit yung kasabihang, hitting two birds with one stone; umeebs na ako nakakapagbasa pa ako ng libro o ha he he he .

and then the next 15 minutes- ito yung grooming time: dito ko ginugugol yung pag-aayos sa katawan tulad ng pagsisipilyo, pag aahit sa bigote, at paglilinis ng tsinelas na kasabay kong maligo. sa bigote ko na lang ay inaabot na ako ng ilang minuto. peste naman kasi. kahit araw araw ka pang mag -ahit nito, bukas meron na naman. at mabuti kung hindi tumitigas. at isa pang nakakairita kailangan mo ring laging may supply ng bagong Rubie blade para hindi masakit ang pag-ahit. Ouch, nasugatan pa ang baba ko.

then the next 30 minutes again will be- bath time: ito na yung bathing proper. dito na ako nagsasabon, naghihilod at nagbabanlaw. talagang every nook and cranny of my body ay sinasabon ko at hinihilod para maramdaman kong malinis ako. at kapag nagbabanlaw ako, ayoko ng isang buhos lang , gusto ko ay sunod sunod ang patak ng tubig para maramdaman kong talagang walang natirang sabon sa katawan ko huh.

then the last 10 minutes will be- wrap up: eto na yung time para magpatuyo ng tuwalya, inspeksyunin ang ngipin kung may natira pa bang tinga, at magsuot ng brief at kamiseta bago tuluyang lumabas ng banyo! voila. fresh na at ready for the world na ang lolah mo.

and that's what constitute my 1 and a half hour sa loob ng banyo!

and anong nangyayari kapag inaabot ako ng 2 hours sa loob nito? wondering what happens inside for the additional 30 minutes?

he he he he, ayaw kong sabihin. itanong nyo na lang sa kaibigan kong babae.
si Mary Palmer, he he he he!

tara goli na tayo.

Beating the summer heat at El Brando Resort

Sahara Desert hot days are here again to stay.

10 eksena na paulit-ulit sa mga pelikulang Pinoy

10 eksena na paulit-ulit sa mga pelikulang Pinoy
#1 SAYAWAN AT KANTAHAN SA DAGAT
Maiisipan kuno ng isang artista na mag-swimming o magbakasyon sa tabing-dagat at hayun na, segue agad sa beach at nagsasayawan with matching kanta pa ang mga artista na mistulang naging party at piyesta scene na ang tabing dagat.
Hindi mo na tuloy maintindihan kung musical ba ang genre ng iyong pinapanood na sine.
#2 PAGHIHIGANTI
Karaniwang tema ng pelikulang Pilipino, lalo na’t action, na mapapatay ang isang mahal sa buhay (asawa, anak, kapatid, magulang, girlfriend o kaya ay kaibigan) ng bida at kanya itong ipaghihiganti.
#3 NYMPHO
Sa mga ST, TF, Romance o kaya ay Bold Movies ay hindi nawawala ang temang ‘nympho’ ang babae kaya kung kani-kaninong lalaki pumapatol para makipag-sex.
Sana’y iba naman ang sakit kaya haling na haling ang makati pa sa gabing babaeng ‘yan sa sex, ‘no?!
#4 ALWAYS LATE NA MGA PULIS
Panahon pa yata ni Kopong-kopong eh itinatanong na ng moviegoers kung bakit lagi na lang huli sa eksena ang mga pulis.
Kung kailan patay na lahat ang kalaban, saka maririnig ang sirena ng mga mababagal na pulis (reyalidad ba ito?).
Simple lang ang sagot, eh. Kapag maaga kasi silang dumating sa eksena ay walang mapapatay ang bida.
#5 INVINCIBLE NA BIDA
Kahit ilang bala ang iputok mo sa bida ay hindi ito matatamaan, gayong hindi ito si Superman na mabilis umiwas sa mga bala.
Kapag siya ang nagpaputok, sangkaterba ang tumitimbwang kahit isang putok lang ng baril ang pinakawalan.
#6 AMNESIA
Ito ang sakit na pumapasok kapag gustong makalimutan ng bida ang kanyang nakaraan at para lalong lumala ang conflict sa istorya.
Sa totoong buhay, may kilala na kayong nagkaroon ng amnesia?
#7 ENEMY AT FIRST, THEN LOVERS
Sa umpisa ay palaging nagsisinghalan ang dalawang bida sa pelikula. Hindi sila magkasundo at laging nag-aangilan sa isa’t isa, ngunit habang lumalaon ay unti-unting nagkakadebelopan. Haaay, kilig naman!
#8 HAUNTED HOUSE
Sa mga katatakutan, hindi nawawala ang haunted house na ‘yan na para bang andami-daming bahay rito sa Pilipinas na pinananahanan ng mga multo.
Kahit comedy ang pelikula ay papasukan ng eksena tungkol sa Haunted House para makapanakot sabay pagpapakita ng pugot na ulo na halatang tinahi sa mantel ng lamesa.
#9 IYAKAN BLUES
Hindi na yata mababakbak sa mga pelikulang Pilipino ang walang kawawaang iyakan. Kahit ang mga bidang lalaki ay parang Maria Cristina Falls kung magpaagos ng luha.
Likas bang iyakin ang mga lalaking Pinoy? Ang alam ko ay hindi madalas magpakita ng pag-iyak ang mga lalaki dahil ayaw nilang mabansagang mahina o bakla.
At ang mga babae ay hindi makikilalang magaling na aktres kapag hindi napagsabay ang kanyang luha, uhog at laway sa paghagulhol sa harap ng kamera.
#10 HULING PAHIMAKAS
Kapag nasabi na lahat ng isang mamamatay ang kanyang mga huling habilin sa iiwanan ay saka lang siya malalagutan ng hininga at yuyungyong sa balikat ng naiwan.Pagkatapos, segue na sa pagpalahaw ng iyak ng naulila, at pagbanggit ng pangalan ng namatay.

Cliche,Redundant, Common, Recurring, Formulaic. Ilan lamang sa mga adjectives na puwede kong maikabit sa mga pelikulang Pinoy nowadays kaya naman, admittedly, napagsawaan ko na ring manuod ng mga ito for this past few years.

Mula pa nuong bata ako hanggang ngayon ay ganito na lang palagi ang nakikita kong eksena sa bawat Philippine movie na lumalabas. Gusto ko namang makakita ng bago at something na mag-aarouse ng aking curiosity.

Ang sabi nila ay patay na daw ang industriya ng pelikulang Pilipino. Ang sabi ko naman, hindi pa. Comatose lang siguro.

Sana may mga makabagong umusbong na pelikulang Pinoy na hindi susunod sa mga lumang formula na kinagawian nang likhain ng ating mga direktor at prodyuser. The best is yet to come ikanga.

At may pag-asa pa rin ang Philippine movie industry para muling ibangon at ibalik ito sa dating glorya na kinalulugaran nito. Back in the days of Lino Brocka and his company.

We need new blood, new ideas and new technique and creativity para muling makabangon ang industriyang nalubog na sa mga pormula at makalumang style ng paggawa nito.

At nang sa gayun, muling bumalik ang mga manunuod sa sinehan at maging box office hit muli ang mga takilya sa ating mga silid - panuoran.

Mga Babaerong Endorser


Nakakatuwa naman itong suggestion ng mga paring Katoliko na huwag iboto ang mga kandidatong ineendorso ng mga celebrity na babaero with matching dropping names pa like Dolphy, Manny Pacquiao and Willie Revillame!

Kung tutuusin , it's a fact that truly men are polygamous by nature.

Kaya hindi mo talaga maiaalis na madaming babae iyang magugustuhan at maiibigan.

Tila ba, hindi normal kapag ang isang "tunay" na lalaki ay magkakagusto sa iisang babae lamang all the rest of his life.

For these celebrities mentioned, unfair naman na tawagin silang bad influence sa mga kandidatong kanilang ineendorso.

Just like Tito Dolphy na alam naman ng lahat na napalaki niya ng maayos ang kanyang mga anak kahit na nagmula ito sa iba't ibang babae .

Ang sabi ng iba, kung kaya mo namang sustentuhan at alagaan ang magiging bunga ng sobrang pagiging palikero mo, go for it ,why not.

Ang mahirap lamang , eh kung anak ka nang anak , tapos hindi mo naman pala kayang buhayin at gampanan ang iyong tungkulin bilang isang ama!

At ang mahirap nito , ang ibang mga pari , hindi naman kasi babaero.

Yung iba lalakero, he he he he he.

At hindi lang naman mga endorsers ang babaero eh. Pati mismong mga kandidato, mga babaero at lalakero din ha ha ha ha.

Ang tanong, sino ang mga babaero at sino ang mga lalakero he he he he.

Peace po tayo !

Earth Day 2010



Today is Mother Earth's Day.

Ngayon ang natatanging kaarawan ng ating Inang Kalikasan upang ating alalahanin ang kanyang kadakilaan bilang isang mapag-arugang ina nating lahat.

Dahil dito , I have devise some ways to help conserve Mother Nature and save her from further destruction and devastation for the betterment of the future generation.

1.) Hindi na ako magtatapon ng basura kung saan saan lamang kundi sa tamang basurahan. Kahit maliit na balat ng kendi ay akin munang iipunin sa aking bulsa ng pantalon at saka itatapon sa akmang tapunan at hindi ikakalat sa kung saan saan lamang. Huwag lang ang upos ng sigarilyo dahil baka masunog ang bulsa ko.

2.) Iipunin ko ang tubig na nanggagaling mula sa aking paliligo o paglalaba upang magamit bilang pambuhos sa inidoro o panlinis sa mga maruruming basahan , nang sa gayun ay makatipid sa paggamit ng malinis na tubig. Yun nga lang puro libag at banil ang laman ng aking pinagliguang tubig na ito.

3.) Hindi na ako magsisindi ng ilaw kapag titingnan ko o pagmamasdan ang aking sarili sa salamin. Sapat na ang flashlight o kandila para gawin ito, tutal wala namang masyadong maganda na dapat makita sa mukha ko.

4.) Magtatanim ako ng mga puno at halaman sa bakanteng lote ng aming bahay. Maraming mga bulaklak ang aking itatanim para maging kahali-halina ang aming hardin sa mga taong nagdaraan. Iyon nga lang, nagalit ang aking tatay at ako'y sinermunan. Dahil bakit daw ako nahihilig sa bulaklak na pambabae at pambakla lamang. Ang hindi niya alam, isa akong rosas. Rosas na walang bango.

5.) Magre-recycle ako ng mga gamit at patapong papel, bakal, bote, garapa, at plastic sa aming bahay. Pinagalitan lang din ako ng aking inay. Eh sukat ba namang pati iyong bote ng toyo na may laman pa eh, itinapon ko na daw para lamang maibenta sa magbobote at magkabarya huh!

6.) At higi t sa lahat, hindi na ako iihi sa kung saan saang pader at bakanteng lote na parang aso, kundi sa mismong ihian na lamang. Huwag lamang sa urinal ng MMDA na sobrang mapanghi.

Ikaw , ano ang kontribusyon mo para matulungan si Mother Earth na humaba pa ang buhay?

Now is the time to move and save her.

Kung hindi ngayon , kailan pa?

Let's conserve energy. Let's help Mother Nature.

Let's save Mother Earth!

Luis Hontiveros

Another guy had captured my dreams and imaginations who goes by the name of Luis Hontiveros of Marikina City.

I had first seen him in his guesting in Wowowee show as one of the contestant in the Willie Of Fortune portion last September 2009.




On that same day, he already captured my heart ( aru joskooooo)



I have found out that he had won the Binatang Pinoy title last 2009 besting other 19 hopefuls.

He is truly charming and enigmatic, plus with his captivating smile that will surely melt your heart out like an ice cream ( chaariinnng ) , I must say, he'll surely have a place to go in showbiz
world.

Go chasing your dream Luis, and may God and your fans help you with it!!!!
