So are their campaign people, the money bags and supporters. The voting public, too, are itching to get their hands on the ballots this coming Monday.   Not I and my…Read More »

    Kung alam mo ang kantang “Napakasakit, Kuya Eddie,”  malamang ikaw ay nasa late 20s to late 30s.  Kung alam mo rin kung sino ang tinutukoy na Kuya Eddie sa kanta, malamang ikaw ay nasa 40s pataas. O pwede ring ikaw ay teenager o nasa 20s lang, pero mahilig magbasa o mag-research tungkol sa local (pop) history. Kaya huwag…Read More »
