broken glass

Naniniwala ka ba sa swerte at malas? May nagsasabi na ang swerte at malas ay dala natin sa ating mga sarili. Kapag naniniwala ka na maswerte ka, nagiging positibo ang pag-iisip. Dahil bukas at magaan ang puso at isipan, nailalagay ang sarili sa mga sitwasyon na may mabuting kahihinatnan. Ngunit kapag sarado ang isip na malas, hindi kataka-taka na makaranas…Read More »

balikbayan box

  Ipinatigil na ni Pangulong Benigno Simeon Aquino III ang policy na pagbubukas ng balikbayan boxes na naglalayong mapigilan daw ang pagpasok sa bansa ng mga kontrabando at armas. Ito’y matapos makatanggap ng katakut-takot na batikos ang Bureau of Customs (BoC) at ang commissioner nitong si Alberto “Bert” Lina mula sa OFWs at netizens.

police motorbike 2

  0 Here in the Philippines, we have a certain ambiguous view about the police. The common reputation they have now is that they are underequipped and outnumbered by the criminal element – assuming that they aren’t involved in crime themselves, either as ringleaders or as accomplices to prevent criminals from staying long in jail. This pervasive negative view is…Read More »

I was travelling years back in Malaysia and while cruising the freeway from the airport to Kuala Lumpur, I was amazed to see a Chinese family in one car, an Indian group in another and a company of Malays in yet another.

Akala ninyo ba mga plot lang ng telenovela ang kapuna-puna? Matagal na rin ninyo sigurong napapansin ang mga anik-anik sa mga patalastas, at pinagtatawanan habang nagkukumpulan sa may sofa. Ang isa ngang gimik ng Bubble Gang sa GMA7 ni Michael V., nakakapag-patawa at kumikita (marahil limpak na kuwalta), sa pamagitan ng pag-spoof o paggaya ng mga patalastas sa kakatuwang pamamaraan.…Read More »

INC TRIUMVERATE

Sa tulad kong hindi miyembro ng Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC), and simbahan o relihiyong ito ay parang isang misteryo. Kahit marami akong mga kamag-anak at mga kaibigang miyembro ng INC, hindi ko sila inuusisa tungkol sa kanilang pananampalataya. Dahil siguro sa respeto at dahil ayokong pakialaman ang napili nilang relihiyon. Ang alam ko lang ay malalaki at magagara ang kanilang…Read More »

phil island

  Hindi naman sa Pilipino galing ang bansag sa ating bayan, na “Pilipinas,” dahil ito ay galing sa “Felipe” ni Haring Felipe II, na hari ng Espanya noong tayo ay sakupin nila, kasagsagan ng emperyo nila. Napaka-simple nang pagkaka-pangalan. Kumbaga sa anak, tayo ang “Junior” ng mga magulang natin. Walang kahirap-hirap, hindi na kailangang mag-isip, at ang karangalan ng magulang…Read More »
