    FORMER SENATOR Joker Arroyo, who was his mother’s executive secretary, called him an “evil genius” for his supposedly creative use of Article 39 of the 1987 Administrative Code of the Philippines to justify the Disbursement Allocation Program, in the process marking the first time that Benigno Aquino III has ever been so referred to by either epithet. A genius, after all, Mr. Aquino is not, his record as both member of Congress and as President not being particularly bright, and DAP itself being the brainchild of his Budget Secretary Florencio Abad. If comparisons must be…

    Turkish president-elect Tayyip Erdogan named Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu as his future prime minister on Thursday and vowed a power struggle against a U.S.-based cleric he accuses of plotting against him would continue. Erdogan said Davutoglu's determination to battle the "parallel state", a term he uses for cleric Fethullah Gulen's influential network of followers, had been a key factor in his nomination as the next AK Party leader and prime minister. Being president will not hinder my struggle with the parallel structure," Erdogan told a news conference in…

  • The Palparan fallacy

    Webmaster
    15 Aug 2014 | 4:30 pm
    PROMOTED to major general by then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Jovito Palparan echoed in 2009 her declaration that she wanted Republic Act 1700, the Anti-Subversion Act, “revived,” although the proper word should have been “exhumed,” RA 1700 having been long dead. Then President Fidel Ramos signed Republic Act 7636, which repealed RA 1700, on September 22, 1992. When Arroyo and Palparan expressed their wish, the Anti-Subversion Act had been dead for nearly two decades. RA 1700 was enacted in 1957 to help defeat the Hukbong Mapagpalaya ng Bayan (People’s Liberation Army)—the…

    IF eight out of 145 crimes have been solved, and in most cases no thanks to you, should you be crowing about it? Eight out of 145 is about three percent of the total cases of journalists and media workers killed in this country, but the Philippine National Police (PNP) nevertheless thinks that that shameful record is to its credit. The PNP also insists that “only” 48 journalists have been killed in the Philippines since 1986, on the argument—which Aquino administration spokespersons cite as well—that some of those killed were “only” drivers and other media workers, while others…

On the very same day that Benigno Aquino III was delivering his fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA), 23 men and women were killed in Sulu in an ambush by suspected Abu Sayyaf gunmen, while up and down the archipelago, murders hold-ups and rapes were going on unabated, no thanks to his favored and favorite…
  • Mabini: Bad leadership leads to ruin

    THE PEASANT-BORN Apolinario Mabini, whose 150th birth anniversary passed last Wednesday with few being even aware of it, was one of the two greatest intellectuals produced by the reform and revolutionary periods in Philippine history. Mabini, who by dint of hard work became a lawyer by the time he was 30, has not received the recognition he deserves, although he belongs in the same company as Jose Rizal. True, those hideous clichés that describe him as “The Brains of the Revolution” and even worse, as “The Sublime Paralytic,” regularly fall from the lips of schoolboys and the…

Similar to the previously-featured Marcelo B. Fernan Bridge in Cebu, the Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge except that it has a single tower instead of Fernan Bridge’s pair.

    The first cable waterpark I’ve featured here on Vista Pinas is the famous Camsur Watersports Complex in Camarines Sur.

One of them is the Deca Wakeboard Park (official website) located in Barangay Tacunan in Davao City.

    Philpop 2014 Loud and Proud Songwriting with the Maestro kicked off earlier today at the Ateneo de Davao University. Davao City was not just another leg for the Philpop Songwriting tour; Davao was the first destination to be graced with the presence of the Maestro, Ryan Cayabyab. For a moment, I felt quite lost. I could barely relate to anything they were talking about. I decided not to fret about it and just pay attention to whatever Maestro Ryan had to say. The one thing that really got my attention was the awesomeness of Maestro Ryan Cayabyab who managed to create beautiful melodies out of…

    I posted a status on Facebook that I was in the mood to blog something. There was no specific topic on my mind though. A friend has recommended me to blog about Pokemon. Here I am, blogging about Pokemon. To be honest, I have been a bit out of touch with Pokemon lately. The last time I really went into addict mode dates back over a decade. Imagine that? Yeah, I enjoyed Pokemon way back then when there were only 251 of them, and when being legendary still meant something. Right now, I’m playing through Pokemon Y. Even though I haven’t really finished the game yet, I’m already…

    Anton de Gracia
    5 Aug 2014 | 10:28 am
    Much has been said about the political and economic situation of the Old Philippines in the history books. There's been something written and published about the campaigns of the Spanish Conquistadors, the Missionaries, the Galleon Trade and the likes. History classes taught us all of these milestones but very briefly about the lifestyle and culture of ours during the different centuries of our history. One thing not readily available is sexuality.In the late 15th century, a certain historian and Jesuit priest, Pedro Chirino wrote about his stay in the country, as well as the behavior of our…

    Photo from InquirerThe Philippine National Anthem today wasn't made to be the song to stir patriotism in the hearts of every Filipino. Its lyrics came from the poet Jose Palma and the arrangement came from Julian Felipe. Neither was it intentionally put together to be the National Anthem as Julian Felipe created his marching music in 1898 while Jose Palma made his poem in Spanish during 1899. Through the years after the revolution, while we were forming our identity, the current version was ratified and used ever since.There's a lot of fierceness, pride and passion in the words and music of…

There's the good side and the bad side, but what Anderson can't get out of his mind is the best of the Filipino People.Here's the video Anderson Cooper's report on CNN:When everything else is taken away, broken, battered, soaked, raw, stripped bare, you see things.

    Way back then, I belong to the call center industry. At the time when the aggressive growth of the BPO industry in the country was starting, I was an agent working to help finish off the last few months of college. To say that people in the call center behave differently than those who work in the regular office hours is an understatement. There is a different culture of Filipinos out there, and Shift is the first movie I've seen that "somehow" showed some light to the lives of individuals working in the BPO sector.The film centers at Estela (Yeng Constantino), a no-boyfriend-since-birth girl…

    Scrumptious sustenance and soulful sayings...My grandfather recently passed away, and when it was time to commemorate his 9th day of passing, the whole clan gathered for prayers and dinner afterwards. We decided to try this new organic restaurant in BF Homes, Parañaque -- The Urban Farm.Located along President's Avenue, near Tahanan Village, it is a fairly small space, but with ample lighting and garden-feel interiors of wood and greens. The lovely quotes painted on the walls are endearing, and dare I say fitting to what we were gathered for.Together with my husband, kids, parents,…

    This piece was originally published here and is being re-published in The Manila Survival Guide with minor edits. It was with a peculiar, and perhaps less than noble, fixation that I read about your crime.  A crime which was extraordinarily morbid, and sensational.  And I gathered the following details: You were thirteen years old. You stole a .22 caliber pistol.  You wrote a suicide letter; short, but it got the message across.  You went to SM City Mall, Pampanga.  You met your seventeen year old lover in front of the Astrovision store in the mall’s Building 3.  You shot him in…

    We can’t possibly be the only people who think the red carpet fashion show lawmakers put up each year during the President’s State of the Nation Address, and the accompanying media frenzy, is not appropriate and healthy for a young and relatively poor democracy. Seriously, this insanity needs to stop. Here are several reasons why. 1. It demeans and dishonors the institutions these legislators represent. Legislators, once they accept the responsibility of holding office as a representative or senator, are no longer just persons or individuals, they have become symbols of the…

Cali Burger In certain foodie circles, it’s become de rigeur to bash Cali Burger, which is mostly because of a really bad marketing misstep. It’s not a secret, and in fact Cali Burger proudly admits, that it is “heavily-inspired” by the popular In-N-Out burger chain in the United States. In fact, if you look at the old food containers of Cali Burger, you’d notice that they even used to use In-N-Out‘s tagline “Quality You Can Taste”. This was a…
