A Marcos and Edsa 30: Thirty years after People Power

Thirty years after  Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. was ousted from his seat of power, the miasma of anxiety has grown thick over the possibility of his JUNIOR occupying the second highest post  in the Executive branch of government. For the past two years, the #NeverAgain hashtag appears in social and mainstream media, grabbing at each opportunity […]

Happy and independent, is the Filipino?

How timely! A triumphant Fil-Am donning the PH flag-at-war during the 28th SEA Games in Singapore! Whoever stitched that on, must have been inspired by the honest mistake of the website of the Office of the President’s in May 2011! Ah this “wardrobe malfunction” just makes me go on a throwback on a May 2011 […]

It won’t be much of a Mother’s day for Mary Jane, Celia and PH

There was an outpour of sympathy from Indonesians and Filipinos for Mary Jane Veloso, days before she had to face her death sentence by firing squad in Indonesia. Mary Jane is a Filipina MOTHER who has been declaring her innocence over a conviction for drug trafficking since Day 1 of her 5-year ordeal. The hashtags: […]

And the prostitution just goes on and on…

The futility of demanding an apology and justice mounted, as soon as a fall guy was thrown in the Mamasapano “mis-encounter” script during the February 2015 Senate hearing.

The burden of a historical baggage

Eight years later, carnage once again stained the history of Maguindanao as more than 40 elite policemen of the Special Action Force (SAF) […]

The call of Pope Francis turned to cash.

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the Argentine Jesuit of Italian bloodline, assumed the Papacy as Pope Francis on March 13, 2013 and it has never been the same for the Catholic faith as the refreshing messages on unity, humility and respect transcends religious boundaries. The large crowd which the Pope drew from predominantly Buddhist Sri Lanka (nbcnews.com) is evidence of […]

“PH Society, be my bitch!” says They!

If my eyes can taste, these images leave with me a flavor that’s one for an up chuck! Both bilious are  Stylebible.ph‘s photo of the S & M tinged number taken at a sexually amped-up “fashion” show of a leading garment brand and the viral shirt photo posted by a writer as it was being […]

Insulted much? Talaga lang huh!

The viral issue at www.hongwrong.com smacks of cultural ignorance on the publisher and on the educational system disseminating it. We are at an Age where Diversity is being embraced by the enlightened and I could have easily snapped back with this highly suggested “Widow” edit : “I am Chinese and my government is Asia’s bully, […]
