R.I.P President Cory Aquino

The former Philippines President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino has passed away. My condolences to the her family and friends. She died today, Saturday, August 1, 2009 at the age of 76. Her son Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III confirmed that she died of cardio-respiratory arrest at exactly 3:18 a.m. at the Makati Medical Center.

Maria Corazon "Cory" Cojuangco Aquino (January 25, 1933 – August 1, 2009) was a President of the Philippines and a world-renowned advocate of democracy, peace, women's empowerment, and religious piety. She served as the 11th president of the Philippines from 1986 to 1992. She was the first female president of the Philippines and was Asia's first female president.

Aquino was diagnosed with the disease in March 2008 but kept up public appearances this year. A devout Catholic, she was a regular at weekend mass until shortly before being admitted to hospital in late June. Aquino was the first female president of the Republic of the Philippines to die up to date.

All Roman Catholic dioceses had started requiem masses for Aquino, after they held "healing masses". Meanwhile, the government declared a week of mourning for her death.

Philippine SONA

June 27, 2009 was the last SONA of the Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo at 4:00 P.M. at the Batasan Pambansa Complex in Batasan Hills, Quezon City. Many said that was the the last SONA of her being the president of the Philippines but we're really not sure if she will not run for same position this May 2010 election. To those who are not familiar what is a SONA? Here is a clipped i got from The State of the Nation Address (SONA) is an annual event in the Republic of the Philippines, in which the President of the Philippines reports on the status of the nation, normally to the resumption of a joint session of the Congress (the House of Representatives and the Senate).

The History about SONA from The concept of a speech being delivered to Congress by a sitting Philippine head of state was conceived on March 22, 1897, when Andres Bonifacio delivered what is now known as the "State of the Katipunan" Address (SOKA) in front of the delegates of the Tejeros Convention. In his SOKA, Bonifacio outlined the achievements of the Katipunan from the time of its founding until August 29, 1896, when the Philippine Revolution began, as well as his planned programs should the Philippine Revolution be successful. However, the first speech delivered by a sitting Philippine head of state which resembled the modern-day SONA was delivered by Emilio Aguinaldo on September 15, 1898, as he was addressing the Malolos Congress. His speech, entitled Mensaje Leido Por El Presidente Del Govierno Revolucionario Para El Congreso ("A Message from the President of the Revolutionary Government for Congress"), would be known today as the "State of the Revolutionary Nation" Address, or SORNA.
During American rule, it became the duty of the Governor-General to address the Philippine legislature on events happening in the islands. This speech was known as the "State of the Philippine Islands" Address (SOPIA), which was delivered by William Howard Taft to the members of the Philippine Assembly on behalf of President Theodore Roosevelt on October 12, 1907. During the term of Francis Burton Harrison however, it became customary for his one-page addresses to be read by the sitting Senate President, which at the time was Manuel L. Quezon, in the belief that since Filipinos are being prepared for self-rule and eventual independence, it should be Filipinos who deliver the speeches. This practice continued until the passage of the Tydings-McDuffie Act in 1934.

Local governments in the Philippines also give their own addresses at some point during the year. At the provincial level, this is called a "State of the Province" Address, or SOPA, given by the provincial governor, while at the city and municipality level, this is called either a "State of the City Address" (SOCA) or "State of the Municipality" Address (SOMA), given by the mayor. In the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, this is called a "State of the Region" Address, or SORA, given by the regional governor. These speeches are not mandated by law, but are given usually as a matter of practice or tradition.

Cebu stories and pics

I got home from my trip in Cebu City last week. I want to apologize that i posted so late in here for updates because I was been busy when i got home. A day after i arrived i went to Cagayan de Oro City to applied for a new passport to change my status. Well, back to Cebu City, when i got there i directly went to the St. Mary Euphrasia Center. It's where the counselling and seminar for Commission Filipino Overseas was held. It took me whole day for the said seminar. After the seminar my cousin met me at Ayala Mall and we took a ride going to their house where i stayed for 4 days. I had so much fun there with my cousin and her kids. We had time to go to Simala (i mentioned it in my last post). And yes! was a far place but it's worth the trip. You can really feel how holy is the area. Will share here some of my photos from Cebu City.

Centella Care

Pimple and acne problem occurs in time you wouln't expect. Many have experience this kind of skin problem especially women and I am one of them. Pimples are commonly caused by clogged or infected pores. Pimples usually develop after blackheads or whiteheads have become infected. When breakouts of pimples occur often, it is considered acne. It is highly recommended that if these conditions exist, that they are treated immediately. Most times, when acne is ignored, it can leave visible scars on your skin, this is what i learned from skin expert that i am visiting for my pimples treatment. She also recommend me pimple cremes and cleanser. Centella creme is one of what she have given me, as she said it has extraordinary healing effects on the skin. It helps in the healing of any lesions, and prevents excess scar tissue from forming on the healing wounds. Centella helps to repair the walls of the veins and capillaries in the skin, thereby promoting healthy circulation. It also improves tissue firmness and elasticity, improving skin appearance and comfort. Check out this product to the nearest skin care clinic in your place and ask the skin doctor about your pimple problem and its treatment.

Bad News!

It is not new in the Philippines to hear bombings as terrorist attack. But just today, two bombs have exploded in Mindanao, killing two people and wounding 27 in one town and 11 in another. A crude bomb hidden in a motorcycle exploded early Tuesday morning in Jolo, Sulu, killing two people and wounding 27 others, officials said. Most of the wounded were passersby and students who were on their way to school. For fear of more attacks, authorities have suspended classes in Jolo. And then hours later car bomb exploded near the port of Iligan City wounded at least 11, including nine civilians and two soldiers. According to witnesses, moments before the explosion, the car with the bomb managed to park near the army jeep from the Philippine Army Light-Armor Division.

Here are some of photos that i found online, after the explosion in Iligan City
