1. pag nag aaral ako sa gabi. pantanggal stress para madaling maintindihan ang pinag aaralan at nirereview.
2. may overnight group study with classmates. pamparelax dahil sa never ending arguments.
3. emo mode. sumesenti pag gabi.
4. dahil di pa sikat noon ang wrock na naging favorite ko after mawala nyan.

Of Archbishop Cruz and jueteng

Not a fan of the man pero noong pinananood ko yung Che-che Lazaro Presents: Mga Anak ng Jueteng, I saw the point he was trying to make. I find him funny, in fact, I guess, he finds himself funny too, sometimes laughing at himself with what he's saying. But surely, he got his point across. For me. Honest and clever, this priest. 


Archbishop Cruz: According to Senator Pimentel (pertaining to Pampanga), that's the Vatican of jueteng and I agree, up to now. I think he had a prophetic vision. Lubao is the St. Peter's. (Laughs hard). Sorry ha.



Archbishop Cruz: Ako na ang  nagsabi, ako pa rin ang magpapatunay? E ikaw? Anong gagawin mo? Binubwenas ka. Ilang milyon ang intelligence fund mo? Nasa iyo ang PNP, nasa inyo ang NBI, nasa iyo yung whatever ek-ek. Ano ka? Umalis ka na lang dyan, palit tayo. Lahat ng tubero, barbero, sorbetero, lahat alam kilala kung sino ang jueteng lord sa lugar nila, pero sila hindi nila kilala.



Che-che Lazaro: Bakit sa palagay nyo po hindi masugpo ang jueteng?

Archbishop Cruz: Pera. Judas started it all, my dear

Che-che Lazaro: 30 pieces of silver.

Archbishop Cruz: Yes mam. Then killed himself. But these people, that's the last thing they will do. (burst into laughter).



Archbishop Cruz: And don't tell me jueteng does not kill.

Che-che Lazaro: It does?

Archbishop Cruz: It does. The moment, for example you did not make intrega, you're done. You are a collector?, you're gone. And the moment you violate the norm of territory, you're gone.



Archbishop Cruz: Just because you cannot stop it, you legalize it. What's next? You'll legalize drugs? You'll legalize prostitution? Just because you cannot leak it, you say it's according to the law. Oh c'mon, nakakahiya naman yon.

The highschool bestfriend

Una ko siyang nakilala noong first year highschool kami, transferee siya. Classmates kami pero hindi ko siya gaanong pinapansin, magkaiba kami ng circle of friends.

Third year highschool, naging kaklase ko ulit siya. Hindi ko matandaan paano nagsimula ang pagkakaibigan namin pero masaya ako dahil hindi ko inakala na hindi pala siya yung taong inakala ko dati na mayabang ay down to earth pala at kwela. Nagkaroon kami ng instant connection.

He was the student council vice president and a consistent class officer. Meron siyang “masa” appeal, may charm sa mga kapwa estudyante na wala ako.

Naging tamabayan ko ang bahay nila dahil malapit lang sa school. Doon ko din nalaman lahat ng tungkol sa kanya. Parehas na high ranking officials sa PNP ang magulang niya. Apat silang magkakapatid, bunso siya at unico hijo.

Naging partner in crime kami sa panliligaw at pambobola sa mga chickas. May pagkachickboy si bestfriend, meron siyang record na pinanghahawakan pagdating sa mga babae, ako ay record holder sa pagiging torpe.

Andoon siya noong una akong nabasted ng nililigawan ko, sinama niya ako sa kanila dahil wala ako sa wisyo sa sobrang kalasingan. Takbuhan din niya ako sa di mabilang na heartbreaks niya.

Kinukunsinte ko siya pagdating sa kalokohan. Ako ang nagtatakip sa kanya sa parents niya kapag kailangan, walang reklamo.

Adopted son ako sa bahay nila at siya sa amin. Kasama ako sa pangaral nila tito at tita kapag sinesermunan siya.

He went to UST for college, sa ibang school naman ako pero hindi doon natapos ang pagkakaibigan namin. Parati pa rin akong nasa kanila kapag may mga okasyon. Hindi nila ako nalilimutang imbitahin, ako din sa kanya.

Ako pa rin ang takbuhan niya tuwing kailangan niya ng excuses, pinagtatakpan ko pa rin siya even after highschool. Drinking buddy sa lahat ng problema.

Mahilig kaming kumain at mag gala. Dyan kami magkasundo. Buddy-buddy kami sa mga fiesta o kahit anong kainan man yan.

Nasa 3rd year college kami noong bumalik ulit ang sakit nya. For the longest time, akala ko completely healed na siya, nagkamali ako. Pero I felt no emotion dahil alam kong gagaling ulit siya. Hindi yun ang first time niya, immune na siya dahil simula ng magkaisip siya, taglay na niya yung sakit na yon.

Mas tumibay ang samahan namin dalawa. Most of the time, nandoon ako para sa kanya para suportahan siya. Ako ang number one fan niya noong sumali siya ng battle of the bands. Gitarista siya.

Mas maraming kalakohan pa. Kahit skinhead na siya, nalagas ang kilay at namanas ang katawan dahil sa gamot, hindi siya tumigil sa buhay. Pinagpatuloy ang nakagawian. Rock en roll pa din.

April 1995, we celebrated his last official birthday sa ospital. Nag overnight ako kasama ng family niya, hindi kami nag-usap. Hindi ko kayang tanggapin kung ano man ang sasabihin niya sa akin ng masaya gaya ng gusto niya. Hindi ako umiyak, hindi rin siya umiyak, infact I never saw him cry kahit isang beses. Pero alam ko nahihirapan siya.Umuwi ako kinabukasan, hindi ko na siya hinintay magising, hindi ako nagpaalam sa kanya dahil alam kong hindi pa naman yon ang huli naming pagkikita.

June of 1995, tinawagan niya ako, may post birthday celebration siya. Sinabay sa birthday nung isang ate niya. Pumunta ako, masaya siya. Malayo sa imahe na nakita ko sa ospital nung nag overnight ako. Naka bonnet na para itago ang kayang skinhead.

Naging busy ako sa school pagkatapos noon, yun ang huli naming pagkikita na buhay pa siya. Nagtatawagan lang kami sa telepono para magbalitaan. The last time na tumawag ako sa kanila, si tita ang naka-usap ko, wala ng energy si bestfriend para hawakan ang telepono. Sinabi kong dadalaw ako sa November 2 sa kanya pero last minute change, bumagyo noon kaya di ako nakalabas ng bahay.

November 4, 1995 ala-sais ng umaga. Ginising ako ng mommy ko dahil may tawag sa telepono. Yung tropa namin na teacher namin sa Filipino noong highschool. Sinagot ko ang tawag kahit ayaw ko dahil sobrang aga pa at inaantok pa ako. I then heard the bad news. Around 3 am that day, he passed away.

Cool pa ako noon, I went back to sleep dahil sa sobrang antok. Akala ko naginip lang ako so tinawagan ko ulit si teacher para mag confirm. Totoo nga, hindi ako nananaginip.

Wala na si bestfriend, wala yung taong kasama kong tumawa, manlait at kumain sa mga jologs na kainan (rich kid si bestfriend). Wala na yung taong nakakaintindi sa akin at nakaka-usap ko ng matino at seryoso. Naguilty ako dahil hindi ako nakadalaw sa kanya noong araw na sinabi kong dadalaw ako. I could have said my final goodbye. Sobrang sakit.

Others may find it weird pero eversince mamatay siya for the past 15 years, parati ko siyang dinadalaw sa sementeryo tuwing birthday niya, death anniversary at pasko. Wala pa akong na miss since then (kasi baka ako ang dalawin nya pag nakalimot ako). That’s the least that I can do to thank him for the awesome friendship.

Its been 15 years since he died of leukemia. He will remain as one of my bestfriends till life after death.

See you in heaven!

The Movers


People (other than family) who in one way inspired and taught me valuable lessons in life that I still carry till now. 

1. The fab 5 – the finest and undeniably the best friends I had. We’ve known eachother since fetuses days. These lifelong friends taught me the real meaning of through thick and thin. 

2. Fr. Medardo “Ardie” Ong – the best priest I knew. He’s got a great sense of humor with an undiminished character. I became religious because of you. 

3. Mama Tess and Papa Badong – my 2nd mother and father. I will always be thankful for giving me a second home and family. 

4. Pong – the highschool bud. The immeasurable, unconditional and mostly fun-filled friendship we had will always be treasured. See you in heaven! 

5. The Greenies – the rest of the elementary and highschool buds. School and after school life will never be the same without you guys. Animo! 

6. Gab & Jong – childhood playmates at Lola’s house. Childhood vacations became adventure-filled because of you. I can never forget the afternoon trips at the nearby rice fields catching shrimps, fishes, spiders. 

7. William, Richard and Ton-ton – childhood playmates at Tita Zeny’s house. Weekend vacations meant playing tex, laste, goma, etc., climbing trees and roofs and going to “neverland” minus tinkerbell. 

8. Smashing Pumpings – the college kada. Despite academic hardships learning math, science and other god-knows-how-hellish-it-can-be-when-math-and-science-joined-forces subjects, became a little less scary and worth taking. The Nasugbu and Balayan Batangas trip, the Angat, Bulacan and Guagua, Pampanga trip, weekend parties, overnights, et. al = priceless. 

9. Ate Yeye – the Sunday school teacher. It was in her school that I first showcased my acting prowess. Bible reading became uber cool. 

10. The Dentro peeps – our neighborhood. We survived numerous brownouts back in the late 80s, the 1990 earthquake, the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption ashes and recently Ondoy. We’re still here.

A letter from a teenage Filipino to the WHOLE WORLD

August 23, 2010

"A letter from a teenage Filipino to the WHOLE WORLD”

As you are reading this letter, I bet that you have seen/heard about what happened earlier in our country.

Tourists were hostages of a policeman here, Rolando Mendoza. After a few hours of the horrible crime, some of the victims were dead including the hostage-taker.

I wrote this letter not just to apologize but also to let everyone know that we Filipinos are not all like Mendoza. We are loving and good-hearted people.

For so many years, our country has been standing tall and surpassing every dilemma; be it small or big. Years ago (back when I wasn’t born yet), you have watched us fight for what we think is right. We fought for the democracy of our nation.. The EDSA revolution. But that’s just one out of many.

Second. We Filipinos have been serving other countries for our families and we treat you as our own as well. With all due respect, I thank you all for giving us the trust through the years. For helping us to become what we are now.

The Philippines is more than just a group of islands. We are a nation of strong and remarkable people. A country of beauty and love known to be hospitable and well-valued. I humbly apologize for what happened tonight. No one in this world would want something like that to happen for life should be valued.

I politely ask the attention of the world. Please do not judge and mistreat us just because of what happened tonight. I have been searching the net and found terrible things. Hong Kong advices to avoid travels here, China and HK bans Filipinos and that Philippines is the worst place to go.

I can’t blame you for what you have decided but I hope that you could understand. Our country is now in a sea of problems. And I know for sure that we helped you in a way or another. Let peace and understanding reign this time.

I know that this letter will just be trash but I wish that you would understand. On behalf of the Philippine population.. WE ARE SORRY.

As a song puts it…

And I believe that in my life I will see an end to hopelessness, giving-up and suffering. And we all stand together this one time then no one will get left behind. Stand up for life. STAND UP FOR LOVE

Sincerely yours,

Reigno Jose Dilao

Catbalogan City, Samar

Guess who's back?

Definitely not me.

Si Kris Aquino sa kanyang twitter. Hindi talaga niya kayang mawala sa limelight kahit saan. Gusto niya parating pinag uusapan at hindi pwedeng hindi niya banggitin ang family nya lalo na sila « ate «. I don’t think bagay siya sa Pilipinas win na win kasi isa cyang sosyalera at di cya makarelate minsan sa mga usapang jologs nina Pokwang at mga guests at mga contestants. Mukha tuloy cyang tanga pag di nya nagegets yung mga jokes o ni ta take nya literally yung mga sinasabi ng mga guests at contestants.

Usapang showbiz na rin lang lulubos lubusin ko na din.

Di na ako natutuwa kay Santino. Di na cya nakakatuwa sa Noah. Ewan ko pero parang trying hard cya sa pag acting sa Noah. Buti pa si Momay at si Andro, ang cu cute.

Alam kaya ni Mariel na hanggang apat ang pwedeng maging asawa ng isang Muslim? At mahal na mahal na siya in just a span of less than three months?

Hindi talaga nabibili ng pera ang class at natural na pagiging sosyal. Alam nyo kung sino ang tinutukoy ko kung nanood kayo ng Rated K last Sunday.

And please lang Willie, wala ka ng silbi sa showbiz.


Ano ang latest sa buhay ko? Wala. Pero kay Rosaleee meron. “Freshwoman” cya ngayun sa isang pamantasan na walking distance lang samen. Feel na feel nya ang pagiging estudyante, talagang aral kung aral ang ginagawa nya. Basa ng basa ng libro, ewan ko lang kung naiintindihan nya. Sabagay, pag may hindi siya maintindihan, nagtatanong naman cya. Good sign, willing talaga cyang matuto.. Ang course nya dapat ay BS in Hospitality Management pero BS in Information Technology ang kinuha niya na suggestion ko.

Bakit hindi Hospitality Management ang kinuha nya? Takot daw siya sa hospital.

Wag kayong mag alala, sinisikap kong turuan si Rosaleee sa mga bagay na dapat nyang matutunan kahit malapit na akong atakihin sa puso sa mga pinagsasasabi nya.Sa hapon ang pasok niya dahil yun ang pinaka convenient saming lahat. Maayos naman, mabait naman daw ang mga classmates nya at professors. Mukhang makakatapos naman kasi magaganda naman yung results ng tests and exams napinapakita nya saken.

Grade 6 na ang anak ko. Konti panahon na lang pwede na mag asawa. Wala akong update sa lovelife ng anak ko. After ng bakasyon hindi na cya nag kwento tungkol kay Athena. Di ko alam kung wala na sila o focus muna sa studies ang anak ko.

Badminton at running ang pinagkakaabalahan ko ngayun aisde from daddy duties, work and school kaya ako busy. Kasama na rin ang pag oorganize ng kung ano anong activities gaya ng reunions dahil malapit na ang pasko. May timbangan kami sa bahay. Pag nagtitimbang ako weekly, 155 lbs ako, hindi ako pumayat pero pag nagtitimbang ako sa Megamall, nasa 150 lbs ako. Ewan ko kung anong timbangan ang sinungaling. Basta alam ko pumayat ako.


I'm helping out our clan sa pag oorganize ng reunion. Nakakatuwa kasi may mga kamag anak pala akong sikat na personalities tsaka nalaman ko rin yung history ng family namin.

I won’t be really back. Nag update lang ako sa buhay ko kasi nga sobrang busy ako. Sobrang busy.

Bakit ba talaga ako busy? Alam ni Gibo ang sagot.
