‘Floating Foundation’

November 04, 2019
A couple of years ago or so, I remember former Senator Nikki Coseteng calling the attention of the public about the “imported steel bars” being used in high-rise buildings in Makati; and she specifically described how those steel bars look like. It seems that it has become “popular” nationwide, imported and cheap but “dangerous,” she said.

My sister and I learned about the passing away of the mother of our close friends Juancho and Mike Sabban. Their mother suffered from a heart attack at the age of 89. Her name is Mrs. Ceferina Manglapus Sabban, cousin of former Senator Raul Manglapus, also close to my family from way back.

About hazing and punishments

After so many bad things that happened in that so-called “hazing”, just to be a member of a fraternity, the latest senseless victim of which was Darwin Dormitorio, fourth class (equivalent to 1st year college) in the Philippine Military Academy in Baguio City who lost his young life due to hazing.

Begging for help

I did not know that “land grabbing” existed until it happened to us – something we never thought would ever happen to anyone until I started receiving letters from cities nationwide begging for help.

In the name of Public Service

September 23, 2019
Our mother’s house and garden were destroyed to the ground. Only a big gaping hole was left of our mother’s house and garden because a group who took over the ancestral home is constructing a high-rise condominium/hotel building which are being pre-sold to the public.

‘Press Freedom very strong’

August 12, 2019
In a way, its true. Filipinos and the media have been abusing and the President, despite of some labelling him “a dictator” has not done anything – yet. But as usual, Filipinos pag nilargahan mo ng nilargahan ang pisi, they tend to abuse their so-called “freedom” of speech to the point of lying and magnifying and exaggerating something that is not true.

4th State of the Nation Address

July 22, 2019
As I write this article on the day itself before the SONA of our President Rodrigo Duterte, there is nothing more appropriate to write about but wish for our countrymen will receive the message of the President in the best way we should and we can for as it had happened in the past, there are those who purposely “misinterpret” just to be different.

Calling the FDA: Is it true?

July 12, 2019
When the doctor examined her husband at the hospital, he asked Steve to paint a clock. Instead, he drew a few circles and then drew a few figures without any logic. It was not like a clock at all! The doctor pulled her aside and said: “Your husband is already on the verge of severe Alzheimer’s disease!” It turned out that it was a test of whether a person had Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Mary was very upset at that time, but as a doctor, she would not just give up. She began to study the disease. She found out Alzheimer’s disease was associated to glucose deficiency to the brain. Her research says: “The dementia of the elderly is like having diabetes in the head! Before one has the symptoms of Diabetes or Alzheimer’s disease, the body has already had problems for 10 to 20 years.”

Believe it or not – Part II

June 07, 2019
To continue my column last Tuesday, gusto kong segundahan the call of President Duterte for Comelec “to scrap poll technology provider.” Vice President-to-be Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. made the same call to “Junk Smartmatic.”
