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 »

The preliminaries played out as expected..The Batasan Hills surroundings were fenced in by concertina barb wires, blocked by cement barriers, firetrucks and huge container vans. Thousands of helmeted, truncheon-wielding Marquez policemen manned the barricades. Voltaire’s septuagenarian helicopters circled overhead. Farther down the road milled Saguisag’s ”hooting crowd.” Renato’s hoi-polloi hoisted placards and streamers, burned effigies, raised angry fists, spewed mouthfuls…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 »

  Akala ko isa na ako sa mga astig na makabagong Gabriela Silang. Nakatapos sa isang pampublikong unibersidad na kilala sa pagiging pugad ng mga palaban. Bagaman di naging akitbo sa anumang radikal na samahan at tahimik na nakatapos ng kurso, napasabak naman sa pakikibaka para sa karapatan ng manggagawa mula noong namulat sa mga kabulastugang nangyayari sa pampublikong sektor.…Read More »

  In today’s world, being bald is a two-way street. For some, it makes them look weak and ineffectual, while for others, they seem to practically emit a sex aura from their hairless heads. In the past, though, baldness was more or less seen to be a negative trait. Why do people go bald? Baldness comes in many forms. For…Read More »

The Pinoy Culture of Entitlement

entitlement

: When talking about Pinoy culture, it’s impossible to not talk about entitlement issues. It’s the big elephant in the room when you talk about unpleasant Pinoy traits. Why do many Filipinos demonstrate a misplaced sense of entitlement? Why does it become such a stumbling block when dealing with people in normal life? History: Again, Colonialism? Part of the reason…Read More »

It’s never too early for Filipinos to get in the Christmas mood! Think the holiday season begins in the “ber” months? Not at all.

  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 »

There’s always a Side B (Light at tunnel’s end)

GenX can readily identify with Side B. It brings warm memories of the CD and DVD’s predecessors called 33’s or long playing albums or the smaller 45’s version which were played in phonographs. This was also common in the good old analog cassette tapes. But Side B can be more than the flip side of some old vinyl records. It…Read More »
