THE CHANGE THAT I WANT IN 2012


The change that I want for 2012 is for government to provide motorcycle and biking lanes in Metro Manila just like in China. 

When I went to China last year,  I was amazed how the Chinese has the freedom to go wherever they want to go safely. 

Maybe you heard how many hundreds of motorists died in accidents in Metro Manila alone just because of the lack of proper lanes for two-wheeled vehicles. Almost always said vehicles are sideswiped by large four-wheeled vehicles. 
My new found Chinese friend even rented a bike to roam around in Hangzhou (Eastern China). She is from Sichuan province (Southwest part of China) and it is also her first time to visit Hangzhou, China. Have I not scheduled my flight to Shanghai, I would also have rented a motor bike or a bike too.
In Ayutthaya, Thailand, my brother and I had fun biking around to the different sites. Together with other foreigners, we rode our bikes the whole day. It is a better medium of transportation. I hate tuk-tuks (auto rickshaws). I think some tuktuk drivers are part of a syndicate and always overcharge tourists.

How about you? What change do you want for 2012?


Malacanan Answered for Pnoy about the PSG Party


Malacanan said that even if the president was at the party,  the President made sure all rescue and humanitarian efforts were in place.

Malacanan said the PSG party have already been earlier scheduled and the party was already paid for so it was impractical to cancel it. 

The backlash is understandable. But let us be reminded that agencies are still doing their jobs.
 
Malacanan said the President has also canceled the Christmas party for Cabinet members initially set Monday night and the funds will instead be sent for relief efforts.

He noted that members of the Cabinet will also be donating money from their own pockets.

Aquino is set to visit typhoon-hit areas on Tuesday.

Media reported that over 650 people have been confirmed dead while 800 are still missing in Iligan and Cagayan de Oro and in other areas in Southern and Central Mindanao, as "Sendong'  whipped the areas Saturday night.


VALERIE CONCEPCION TWEETED THAT PNOY WAS PARTYING LAST SUNDAY



President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III was apparently "partying" with members of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) amid the "Sendong" international name “Washi” disaster which has so far left over 600 people dead an actress accidentally revealed on her twitter account. 
 
 
Tweet of Valerie Concepcion Screen Captured by CS 
Valerie Concepcion tweeted Sunday night that she was at the Palace and was set to perform three songs for the PSG party.

She also said in her Twitter account that Aquino laughed at her jokes and enjoyed her performance, but this tweet had been deleted after she and the President received a backlash.

Concepcion apologized for  her earlier tweets.

She clarified that she was invited to perform at the PSG party but she does not see anything wrong with Aquino dropping by the event.

"I do not see anything wrong with that since its his obligation and responsibility being the head of MalacaƱang to be present and show his support for his hardworking employees and their respective families. But I believe that it doesn't mean that the president is not thinking of ways to help our kababayans in Mindanao. It doesn't mean that the president is disregarding the plight of our fellow Filipinos. Let's not be too quick to judge," the actress said.

Concepcion also issued an apology if she "offended" people and "sounded insensitive."

"I am very sorry. It wasn't my intention to do either. I can't imagine how difficult life is for the people affected in Mindanao and how difficult it is to be the president of the Philippines at this moment," she said.

BORN IN THE EYE OF THE STORM



Born in Bicol Region, I grew up amid typhoons and floods. Literally.

I thought it was a common occurrence and part of life everywhere. A year will not pass by without a typhoon or flood.

But I learned I am wrong when I went to Lake Sebu and Polomolok in Mindanao in 2010. 

The good people I met there told me that they never experienced flood or typhoon. I thought they were joking.  I told them they were so lucky because I grew up seeing floods,typhoons and devastated crops and shall I say dead people?

I remember my mom giving away sacks and sacks of rice and old clothes to our neighbors, relatives and friends right after every disaster even though our own home was flooded too. 

Growing up, I and my cousins would look forward walking in our flooded barangay in Cam Sur so we could play. But almost always my mom won't even let me go downstairs. 

While she distributed food, rice and old clothes to our ka-baranggay I would be sitting on the steps of the stairs and wait for the floodwater to subside so I could join her. 

In 2006 my mom died:( Then another typhoon struck our region. Thousands of people became homeless and died. 

The classmate of my niece age 16 years old from Oas, Albay died of drowning because the landlady in their boarding house in Legazpi City thinking about the safety of her boarders in the eye of the storm, padlocked the gate of the boarding house and went home.

That particular error in judgement claimed all the lives of  six young and vibrant students who were all trapped inside the boarding house when the flood went up to the roof. 

My niece who also lived in a dormitory in Legazpi City was so lucky because her dormitory has a second floor. She said the flood was just a step away from the second floor. 

Since my niece and the other boarders could not go out to buy food, they stayed together in one room at the second floor. She said she remember the wind to be so strong that the roof was almost blown away. That's why all their things got wet.

They tore the pages of their notebook and cooked a few packs of instant noodles they had on stock using a mug.  They shared one pack among eight of them. 

They waited for somebody to rescue them.  But nobody came. When they ran out of food and all their clothes were wet, they decided to walk home from Legazpi to our place which is a good one hour away by car.

She said that after walking for an hour from her boarding house in Legazpi to Daraga, they were able to board a jeepney to Guinobatan where they transferred to another jeepney because some portions of the road in Guinobatan were littered with dead people who were victims of flashfloods.

BTW, she survived the ordeal. Shocked as she is she slowly got over it through the years.

Please help Mindanao by donating either money or your labor of love to repack goods to be distributed to our kababayan in Mindanao.
