A woman scorned?

"HELL  hath no fury like a --- pretty, if I may add ---woman scorned", probably William Shakespeare's most famous quote, distinctly defines the essence of "womanhood", and the reportedly low-key daughter of socialite Baby Cruz-Vasquez, Patricia Paz "Tish" Cruz-Bautista, is no exception. 

The fury of pretty Tish brought her storming into President Duterte's austere office complaining about her husband's alleged philandering and, with documents, his alleged shortcomings as a niggardly family man who owns an alleged net worth of P 1-B, including P 329-M in multiple bank accounts, half of all of which she vehemently demands as her conjugal…

No More White or Black! Just Grey!

TODAY - August

August is the Chinese Ghost Month. Today, Monday, is August 21, 2017. It is the 34th anniversary of the assassination of former Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino y Aquino.

Traffic – Build! Build! Build! Clear! Clear! Clear!

YESTERDAY

WHEN I entered Kindergarten/Prep School at Nena Garcia’s Kindergarten on Apo Street corner Quezon Ave in June 1954 (at five years of age, born on Oct 12, 1948.), there was no general traffic problem. 

My two elder brothers, Manuel and Francisco went to high school and grade school at San Beda College in Mendiola. My two elder sisters, Maria Carmen and Rose Marie, went to high school and grade school at St. Theresa’s College on Demetrio Tuazon in Quezon City.

At that time, we lived in Rosario Heights, New Manila, Cubao, Quezon City, and we could cross Quezon…

 Win some, lose some

NO one is really totally invincible in life. Even the wealthiest and most powerful men and women have to lose some battles. 

Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte ought to realize that his current legal controversy with Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales has pushed him out on a limb.

After Marawi, what then?

OVER a week ago, the high command of our armed forces announced the immediate acceleration of clearing operations to liberate the beleaguered city of Marawi --- with no quarters given amid intensive aerial bombardment, and with the single-minded purpose of freeing trapped civilians. That's a tough assignment...a mix of maximizing aggression while minimizing loss of life and limb!

But our troopers will carry out their sworn tasks with the same patriotism that made them troopers, and with the same valor to return to the fields of combat after medical confinement...aaw, doesn't this make one tearfully proud...and they will succeed…
