Miss Universe 2009

I watched the coverage of the Miss Universe Pageant on ABS - CBN live via satellite. The contenders were all sexy and beautiful (they should be.. lol). Though the representative of the Philippines, Pamela Bianca Manalo did not win the crown but still she showed how beautiful are the Filipino ladies. The 58th Miss Universe pageant was held at the Atlantis Paradise Island, in Nassau, Bahamas. It made history when an outgoing queen crowned her successor from the same country, Stefanía Fernández, Miss Venezuela, was crowned Miss Universe 2009 by outgoing titleholder Dayana Mendoza of Venezuela. My congratulations to her!

Nino Aquino Day

The whole Philippines commemorate the death anniversary of former Senator Benigno "Ninoy" S. Aquino, Jr. last Friday, August 21, 2009. It was a national non-working holiday in the Philippines observed annually for commemorating of the 1983 assassination of former Senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. He was the husband of Corazon Aquino, who was later to become Philippine President; they are treated as two of the heroes of democracy in the country. His assassination led to the downfall of Ferdinand Marcos on February 25, 1986, through the People Power Revolution. In 2004, the commemoration ceremony for the holiday was held and events were attended by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Fidel V. Ramos.

Civil society groups staged a tribute to him at Makati's financial district, site of the many protest marches in the 70s and 80s against the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos.

Philippines President : 1 Million Peso Dinner

The most controversial news today is about GMA's trip to the United States. Apparently there are reports that she spent $20,000 (or 955,400 Philippine Pesos) on dinner at an exclusive restaurant in New York. According to what I've heard from the news they bought expensive wines, caviar etc. and the serving was for 25 people. The Malacanang denies the said issue though and Press Secretary Cerge Remonde adds that the dinner was FREE, paid by Rep. Martin Romualdez, which I doubt is true. Colleagues of Leyte Representative Martin Romualdez in the House of Representatives have asked him to confirm if he really paid for the dinner of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her entourage on August 2 in the posh Le Cirque restaurant in New York City and to tell the public how much he spent for it. Romualdez has yet to reply to text messages or calls since the controversy was raised over the weekend. Didn't they realize when common Filipinos hear this the first thing that come in their mind was thousands of hungry, poor Filipinos could have been fed for a month, so why didn't GMA demanded that the big spender dumped his money on those poor people instead, while they can dine on more appropriate place? And to think that there are millions of Filipino families who can barely afford a nutritious meal.

Here is the Breakdown of GMA's bill at Le Cirque:

A customer may also choose Windows as the hosting platform.

Petition to Oust Willie Revillame

I watched wowowee show on ABS-CBN last saturday and noticed that their host Willie Revillame was not in the show. I thought he is on rest again because of his health problem but I was wrong. Just discovered that he is suspended on his noontime show because of what happened last Monday on the show. His “objectionable" way of removing the live video of former President Corazon Aquino’s cortege violated the broadcast code of ethics, an official of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) said.

"NO TO WILLIE " A petition to oust Wowowee's Willie Revillame is spreading like wildfire on the internet.

Here is the petition:

To: ABS CBN Management, MTRCB and PANA

To Whom It May Concern:
I am an avid viewer of ABS CBN and I am very well up-to-date regarding their shows. Without any doubt, I am a Kapamilya. However, last August 03, 2009, an incident happened when Wowowee Host Willie Revillame blurted out comments when a video of Pres. Cory's cortege appeared on the screen.
While a contestant was dancing for the talent portion, a snippet of Pres. Cory Aquino's cortege was shown on the screen. But Willie did not cut short the dancing portion. Instead, he let the contestant finish her routine. After that, he blurted out comments regarding the video of Pre. Cory's cortege. He said:
"Kung ganyan, pakita na lang natin 'yan. Kasi nagsasaya kami dito, tapos... Masakit sa akin 'yan, e. Nagsasalita ako dito... 'yan, please. Sana maintindihan n'yo. Nagsasaya kami dito, papakita n'yo sa amin yun ang... di ba? Hindi tama, e. Okey? Hindi ba?"
"Pangit! Hindi ho maganda sa atin. Nagsasalita, ipinapakita yung kabaong ni Tita Cory, hindi ba? Papano kami makapagsasaya, nahihirapan kami? I'm sorry ho, ha. Pero ako, totoo ako, e. 'Wag n'yo akong pagagalitan, kasi totoo ang gusto kong malaman...
"Pagkatapos ng show, ipakita n'yo ang gusto n'yong palabas. Kasi itong Wowowee, gusto ko... Hindi ba, at alam din ni Tita Cory 'yan dahil napasaya rin siya ng show na ito na laging masaya dito, ok?"
Some may argue that Willie's intention was good, but I rather find these statements rude and arrogant. Wowowee and Revillame is known by millions of Filipino viewers and the show is even watched across several countries through TFC. To react in such way is downright arrogant and disrespectful to the former President Corzaon Aquino. I know that it was a bad taste for ABS-CBN to show a snippet of the funeral on Wowowee, but it was worst for Revillame to react that way.
Willie have chosen to let the contestant dance instead of cutting short her act and give way to the coverage of the cortege. Willie have chosen to blurt out his rude comments ON-AIR instead of Off-cam. In short, Willie have chosen to have fun instead of giving way to the funeral of Pres. Corazon Aquino. So they'd rather have fun instead of pay our respects to our democracy icon? That was not a good example to our youth today.
Was it really hard for him to be humble and human? I believe that this is not the first time that he aired his views and rather arrogant comments On-air. He embarasses his staff, makes fun of the contestants, and arrogantly act on TV almost everyday. Pres. Aquino taught us humility, and Revillame is showing us the exact opposite: arrogance.
This time, Willie's statement should be condemed not only by the public, but by the management of ABS-CBN as well. It also creates a public outrage in the internet forums, chatting boards, and online-newspapers. Majority have negative reactions and have condemned Willie Revillame's brutal statements.
With this, I am calling the attention of the management of ABS-CBN to stop the “arrogant act” of Willie Revillame on National TV program and reprimand him because of his actions. Willie Revillame had been very disrespectful to the Pres. Cory Aquino's cortege, Filipinos icon of democracy. It was also worst for your company that your own employee criticize you on national television instead on off the air conversations.
I am calling the attention of the MTRCB to be more vigilant, so that this lowest form of personal attack by a tv showbiz talk show host, for her/his personal agenda, will not happen again.
I am calling the PANA to stop supporting Wowowee until they axe or reprimand Willie Revillame due to his actions. With him as one of the hosts, your product does not project a positive image to the public.
The public and TFC subscribers deserve better programming, and we deserve better than the likes of Willie Revillame.
The Undersigned

Farewell President Corazon Aquino

Just finished watching the live coverage of late Former Philippine President Corazon Aquino's funeral. Eventhough the weather is not good in Manila today because of rain, it didn't stop the thousands of people who attended the funeral. This only proves how she is love by the Filipino people. Rain failed to dampen the spirits of thousands of Filipinos who, after the public viewing at the remains of Aquino was closed, decided to stay and lined up outside the Cathedral, wishing that they can see the beloved president of the Philippines. The funeral convoy started to move out at around 11:26 a.m. By then people, most of them wearing yellow shirts or ribbons, or holding yellow balloons lined three deep on Roxas Boulevard.

President Gloria Arroyo declared today a national holiday for the funeral. Arroyo paid her respects to Aquino at the cathedral shortly before the funeral Mass and after arriving home from a shortened trip to the U.S. She didn’t stay for the service, attending a Mass at the presidential palace instead.

Aquino had called for Arroyo’s resignation or removal since 2005 for alleged vote-rigging and corruption.

Students, employees, professionals and even members of various organizations clad in yellow clothes, yellow rain clothes and yellow hats and caps crammed the boulevard waving yellow flags, streamers and banners with words showing love and gratitude to the late president as early before dawn.

I want to thank late President Aquino for being a good leader to our country and for taking back the democrary for the Filipino people. May your soul rest in peace.
