Tito Sotto versus Bloggers


Aba'y napakawalang-modo  naman pala at  sobrang arogante ng isang senador pa mandin na may pangalang Tito Sotto .

Dahil lang sa nabisto ang pangongopya at panggagaya ng speech na isinagawa niya sa isang debate pabor sa RH Bill ay tinawag niyang  " blogger lang "  ang blogger na kinopyahan ng " so-called speech " niya .

And to quote him:


Wehhhh , ano ngang sabi mo , kagagalang-galang at butihing Senador ?

" Blogger lang ???!!!! "

Lintek , tinamaan yata ako dun ah .

Blogger lang pala ako wehehehe???!!!

Eh ikaw , ano ka ???!!!

Senador ka lang naman din di ba ???!!!

Kung hindi nga dahil sa mga mamamayang blogger na tulad ko ay hindi ka pupuwesto diyan sa upuang kinauupuan mo ngayon ,  inggrato  ka.

Kung blogger lang kami eh ikaw ano ???!!!

Actually , utusan ka lang namin .

Dahil kami ang boss n'yo sabi iyan mismo ng amo mong si Pnoy ha ha ha .

At dahil diyan sa mga remark na katulad niyang hindi pinag-iisipan , lumalabas ngayon ang kabobohan mo !!!

Sino ngayon ang nagmumukhang gago !!!!

Ikaw na !!!

 Ganiyan ang napapala ng mga taong imbes na magpakumbaba at humingi ng paumanhin ay nagdudunong-dunungan pa at umaastang marunong subalit salat naman talaga sa karunungan .

Hmmmmpppp!!!

Kapag kumati ...

Kapag kumati daw ang kamay mo … may perang darating.

Kapag kumati daw ang leeg mo … may taong gusto kang makita.

Kapag kumati daw ang labi mo … may gustong humalik sa iyo.

Kapag kumati daw ang dibdib mo … may taong patay na patay sa iyo. 

Kapag kumati daw ang tenga mo … may tao na gusto kang makita.

Kapag kumati daw ang mukha mo … may humalik sa litrato mo.


Eh paano kapag ang kumati ay ang ari mo … Aba! Iba na iyan!
Kamutin mo na! Baka kinagat iyan ng langgam! 

Pero kapag buong katawan mo na ang kumati … Aba , maligo ka na agad dahil ang tagal mo nang hindi nasasayaran ng tubig !

ROLDAN JIMENEZ PINEDA

Sobrang na-touched naman ako sa FB post na  ito kaya ninais ko ring mai-share sa aking mga giliw na mambabasa. Just read on and be touched by an angel just like me :




I am just sharing this picture of a very humble guy named ROLDAN JIMENEZ PINEDA, 63yrs old, from Isabela. You don’t need to read everything if you are lazy, but all I need to ask of you is to pray for his safety. I am not a writer, but I will try to tell you the whole story.

Here's what happened:

Just this windy and rainy morning, I was in my friend's canteen. It is just beside the subdivision where I live. I was chatting with my friend's dad about some business. This humble guy who came in front of us caught my
attention. He was not asking for money nor anything. Instead, he ordered P5 worth of rice. He cannot even look directly because he feels so shy.He said, "Maaari po bang bumili ng limang pisong kanin?" His hair is
so wet that's why he covered it with a small towel. His clothes are kinda wet too. When I heard his shaking voice, I can feel that he is tired, cold, and starving. He has a green backpack and a sack with old boxes and
plastic bottles. I suddenly felt sorry about him, that my heart was telling me that I need to do something. Instead of me just sitting on my chair, I decided to stand up and tried talking to him. I asked him if that small amount of rice would satisfy him. He said that he was planning to eat some of it and save some, then continue walking till he reach Nueva Ecija which is more than a hundred miles I think. His destination would be Isabela, where he lives.

He asked if he can fill his bottle with some water. I said, sure. While I was putting water in his used old bottle, I told him to order some more food so he can eat. Told him not to worry because I will pay it for him. Mang Roldan never asks for money. He earns his own by selling bottles at the junk shops. His eyes turned red, while he was trying to hold his tears. He said that he can’t thank me enough.

MANG ROLDAN: Nahihiya po ako kasi ganito lang suot ko.
ME: Akong bahala po sainyo. Ano pong gusto nyong kainin?
MANG ROLDAN: Wala po ako sa posisyon para pumili. Kahit gulay lang po o yung pinakamura.
ME: Kailangan nyo pong kumain. Order po kayo kahit ano, yung siguradong mabubusog kayo.

I took his hand so he can walk beside the stand where he can choose. While they were giving him his food, I told him that I need to go home and get some money so I can pay his bill. At home, I grabbed my old camouflage jacket which I gave him.

We talked about his tragic story and his plans. Years ago, he needed to sell their house and lot because his wife had a bone disease. Sadly, everything was spent but his wife didn’t make it. He had 3 children. The first born were twins, died because of bronchopneumonia. While the youngest was ran over by a bus. He tried putting a small business by selling fishballs in Manila, but in the time of Bayani Fernando, MMDA took his carts and destroyed them. Mang Roldan and his family are church people.

You can tell with the way he speaks. He visited Pampanga to see his sister/brother. Too bad he wasn’t able to meet the only family that he knows. Hearing his story broke my heart.

I also noticed that he cannot walk straight because of his swollen left leg. “Lumipad yung bato na nadaanan nung gulong ng jeep, tumama sa paa ko” he said. He thanked me for the food and jacket. I handed him some money so he can ride the bus and buy food. He said that he cannot give me anything in return.

Seeing him wipe his tears made me feel  sad that it made me cry too. I was speechless. I shaked his hand and told him that his story was enough for me to learn things, and I was happy that I was able to help him. I gave him my umbrella so he will not get wet on his journey. He didn’t want to take it, but I insisted. (I hope my mom won’t notice that her umbrella is missing)

While Mang Roldan was crossing the street I was looking at him. I noticed that he was walking towards a corner. He saw a beggar on the side. You know what he did? He did not share the food that he had, HE GAVE EVERYTHING! Rice, bread, and water. That’s it! That was priceless! I knew that this man is special. He touched my heart. I realized that what I gave him is not even enough. Salt water fell from my eyes. (even while I’m typing now). I decided to go to him when I noticed that buses and jeepneys were not
stopping because of discrimination. So we waited for a bus and I took his picture. He smiled and said, “half-body lang ha, nakakahiya may dala akong sako. Hehehe!”

What a guy! He can still smile after all the things that he went through. Finally, a bus stopped. I told him to act as if he is my uncle. Before he stepped on the bus, he thanked me again. I waved goodbye and said “Ingat Tito, text mo ako kaagad.” I said it loud so the conductor will hear me.

I don’t know, but he was like an angel that was sent to teach me and realize lots of things. That is why I decided to put it on FB, hoping that you will learn from it. If only I am wealthy enough, I would love to do
more things just to help more needy, homeless, poor and deserving people. I also hope I could meet Mang Roldan again, and give him a fishball business or have him help me helping others.

I remember a book written by Father Jerry Orbos, that we should not be just a Good Samaritans but we need to be a Better Samaritans.

You can share this if you want. If not, just  pray that God bless the people like Mang Roldan. May God Bless you too : )

R.I.P. Neil Armstrong

Pumanaw na ang isang dakilang alamat.

Ang kauna-unahang tao na nakarating sa buwan .

Dati-rati ay abot-tanaw lamang natin ang maliwanag na buwan sa gabing madilim.

Subalit dahil sa kaniyang ginawa ay binago niya ang pagtingin ng daigdig tungkol sa kalawakan.

Naging posible ang imposible.

Naabot niya ang hindi na mararating ng marami sa atin.

Na tila ba isang dipa na lamang ay napakalapit na niya sa Diyos.

Ngayon ay kapiling na niya ang Dakilang Manlililok ng Buwan na minsan na niyang napuntahan. 

Paalam , Neil Armstrong !

Salamat sa inspirasyon !

7 steps of becoming a champion

  From: JOLLIBEE KIDS WORKSHOP:
Are you aware of this day? Do you still remember all our national heroes who have made a big difference for our country's freedom?
Some of the Filipinos today tend to forgot to commemorate and redo all the heroic acts of our national Heroes. They fail to remember that even a simple act of kindness can be considered as a heroic act.

Just like what EFREN PEÑAFLORIDA does. He is a hero awarded in which he advocates to support the education of the children who are greatly in need.

You too can be like Him! You too can be a Hero in your own way!

Here are your Seven (7) Steps of becoming a champion:

(1) Be Optimistic. You cannot win if you don't believe you can win. Your mind and outlook have an incredible impact on your performance.
(2) Identify your natural talents. Everybody is different, some people are naturally better at certain things than others. A champion knows what their gifts are and seek to develop them.
(3) Discipline Yourself. People who win a lot are often very good at self-discipline. They can develop a plan and follow it, and maintain motivation and will power.
(4) Practice makes perfect. Keep trying until you have reached the level you want to be at, and then keep working to maintain that level. Repetitions become instinct or muscle memory.
(5) Don't get disheartened when you lose. If you keep trying your time will come. Nothing sucks worse than losing, so fear of losing or resent of past losses should motivate you to "go the extra mile" in your training.
(6) When you do eventually win, congratulate other participants. Remember no one likes a bad winner or a bad loser! Also important to remember, winning is not the end of it, unless you don't intend to keep doing whatever it is you have become a champion at.
(7) MOST IMPORTANTLY, HAVE FUN! Losing sucks, but if you sacrifice what makes you enjoy doing something just to be good at it, there's not much of a point to it anymore, unless you're doing it for a living... Then you've gotta grind it out or find a new pr

R.I.P. Jesse Manalastas Robredo

Hayzzzz , bakit nga kaya ganuon!

Kung sino pa iyong mga matitino at mahuhusay at mababait at magagaling ay siya pang unang kinukuha ni Lord ???!!!

Take the cases of  James Dean , Marilyn Monroe , Elvis Presley , John Lennon , Michael Jackson , Martin Luther King , Bob Marley , John F. Kennedy , Ramon Magsaysay , Ninoy Aquino and the list goes on and on and on .

Exception to the rule sina Mother Teresa at Pope John Paul II because they died at the tender age of 87 and 84 respectively.

Na kahit ganuon sila kababait at kahuhusay ay kinuha sila ni Lord nang matatanda na sila .

Para mas madami pa silang mapagsilbihan at matulungang mga kapwa ?

Eh ang mga naunang mas bata pa ay namatay na , bakit naman kinuha agad ?

Marami pa sana silang mapapasaya , mapapaligayang mga kapwa , mapagsisilbihan at matutulungang mga kapwa nila na nangangailangan.

Sayang ang talento .

Sayang ang talino.

Sadyang mahiwaga nga talaga ang buhay ng tao !

Proud kami dahil kababayan namin ang " maurag na taong ini ".

At dahil sa kaniya ay first time kong nakatapak at nakapasok sa ground ng Malakanyang !

Condolence to Secretary Jesse Robredo's family and friends at sa lahat ng mga kababayang nagmamahal sa daan tungo sa kabutihan .



" His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your lord. "

Matthew 25:23

Kung wala kang magawa sa buhay mo at batong bato ka na sa loob ng bahay mo , sundin ang mga payong ito mula kay Ash Briones :

1. Manghuli ng mga insekto... lalo na yung mga maliliit na lumilipad gaya ng lamok, langaw , gamu-gamo, alitaptap etc.
 
2. I-drawing ang sarili...pagkatapos punitin... at saka buuhin ulit.
 
3. Magbalance inquiry sa iyong cell network tapos mag-reply dito.
 
4. Pumunta sa kusina at mag-inventory ng mga kagamitan, gaya ng kutsara ,tinidor ,kutsilyo ,tasa , mangkok , plato , baso etc.
 
5. Kumuha ng mantika at tubig ...pakuluan...tapos paghiwalayin.
 
6. Labhan ang lahat ng mga damit na nasa kabinet tapos i-dryer.


7. Makipaglaro ng jack en poy sa salamin... huwag titigil hanggat di ka nananalo.
O ha , san ka pa!

London Olympics 2012


Natapos at natapos ang London Olympics 2012 nang bonggang bongga at todo pasabog
at yanig factor pero ang naiuwi ng ating Philippine contingent para sa nasabing quadrennial sporting event ay isang mahinang putok ng kwitis at watusi.

Poof!

Opo , nganga ang mga atletang Pilipino na sumabak sa giyera .

Ang sabi nga ng isang running joke na napakinggan ko sa isang radio show:

Ang mga atletang Tsino daw ay mga bata pa lamang and as young as 6 years old ay nagsasanay na upang maging magaling na manlalaro at kompetitor sa mga pandaigdigang paligsahan.

At ang kanilang mga atleta daw ay tine-training nang 3 years before the sporting event itself .

Kaya pagdating ng nakatakdang taon at araw ay tiyakang handang handa ang mga ito sa pagsabak sa anumang uri ng labanan .

Pero ang ating mga ataleta ay kakaiba.

Dahil sila ay nagte-training , 3 MONTHS before the event ha ha ha .

Kalokah.

Hindi naman sa minemenos natin ang kakarampot na isinabak sa larangang ito ng paligsahan sa palakasan, subalit kung ganiyan nang ganiyan ang ating performance sa mga events na tulad niyan ay mabuti pang hindi na lang tayo magpadala ng ating mga kalahok .

Dito na lang tayo mag-tumbang preso at patintero , pwede pa.

At any rate , congratulations pa rin sa mga atleta dahil sa todo effort na kanilang ibinigay kahit na kulang na kulang ang suportang natatanggap nila mula sa gobyerno.

At lalo na kay Mark Barriga na siyang tanging nag-uwi ng medalya sa katatapos na Olympiad .

Better luck next time na lang ulit , kung may next time pa .

Eat Bulaga Indonesia




Oo nga naman at may karapatan si Joey De Leon na maghinanakit at magmaktol dahil parang hindi masyadong nabibigyan ng sapat na attention at pagkilala  ang pagkakaruon ng franchisee ng programang Eat Bulaga para sa bansang Indonesia which is unprecendented in Philippine History .

First time ito ha in the history of Philippine television na may bumili ng franchise ng isang TV show para sa kanilang sariling bansa .

Ito ang longest running noontime show ng Pilipinas na hindi talaga mapapantayan ng kahit sinuman at anuman.

Kaya nga pati ang " It's Showtime " ay saludo at bow  sa kanila he he.

Ang tanong , mapantayan kaya ng Eat Bulaga Indonesia ang institusyong naipundar ng TVJ Trio and the rest of the gang para sa Eat Bulaga Indonesia ?

At dahil diyan ay may bago nang lyrics ang theme song ng ating pambansang noontime show .

And it goes like this :

" ... Mula Manila hanggang Jakarta .
Sa Pilipinas o Indonesia
Isang libo't isang tuwa
Buong Asya , Eat Bulaga "


O debah naman he he .

Habagat August 2012

It happened once again .

Ang mala-Ondoy na pag-ulan at pagbaha  sa buong Kamaynilaan kasama na ang mga karatig-probinsya katulad ng Tarlac , Cavite , Laguna , Rizal , Bulacan , Pampanga , Bataan , Zambales at Batangas .

Whew , sabi ko na nga ba , it will happen again no sooner than later .

Ayokong magpaka-prophet of doom .

But the rate things are going with Mother Earth's environment , I am warning na mauulit pa nang maraming  beses ang mga pangyayaring katulad nito .

Let's just pray to God na i-spare niya tayo sa susunod pang mga mas malalalang delubyo.

Iba na nga ang panahon at klima ngayon as in .

And it will be worst in the future , promise !

Pati ang sangkalupaan ay nag-iba na rin .

Wala na ang mga dating malalalim na ilog.

Mababaw na sila ngayon dahil sa mga santambak na basura.

Marumi pa at mabaho.

Ang mga bundok at kagubatan  ay naglaho na . Nakalbo na dahil sa mga pagmimina at pagtotroso.

At ang dagat ay unti-unti nang nilalamon ang ating kalupaan dahil sa pagkatunaw ng mga yelo .

Galit na talaga si Inang Kalikasan .

At hindi pa bagyo iyan huh .

Habagat lang iyan .

Paano kung may bagyo pa .

Ayoko nang mag-sermon pa .

Tingnan n'yo na  lang ang mga litrato at sila  ang bahalang mangusap sa ating lahat .
