Kris Aquino Defends PNoy


Kris Aquino on Monday night broke her silence over her brother's criticism of ABS-CBN News anchor Noli "Kabayan" de Castro and other Filipino journalists during the 25th anniversary party of "TV Patrol." 

Kris Aquino, the younger sister of President Benigno "PNoy" Aquino, who happens to be Noli De Castro's co-employee at ABS-CBN, tweet her answer to a twitter user who said that you never attack media back.


Here are the screen captures of the said Twitter conversation:
 
She said she is careful in commenting about the issue. "Prayed before I replied to make sure I don't tweet the wrong thing. My issues are so trivial in comparison to PNoy," Kris said. 
 "PNoy is our president and I do believe the majority of our people feel he's doing a great job. Maybe he just like anybody else," she added.
Kris said on Twitter that her brother has the right to defend himself and express his opinion. Freedom of speech is a 2-way street right? quips Kris Aquino on Twitter.

Her brother on Friday night lashed out at de Castro and Philippine media for alleged bias toward negative news reports. Aquino, in his speech at the 25th anniversary celebration of TV Patrol at the Manila Hotel, said he wants a positive spin in news stories and commentaries from ABS-CBN's flagship primetime news broadcast.

The president specifically vented his ire on de Castro, a veteran TV Patrol anchor and former a vice president of then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, for allegedly belitting the gains made by his administration with regard to the sorry state of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1.

Aquino also said he was unhappy over criticisms on TV Patrol regarding the National Bureau of Investigation's recovery of a kidnapped child last June 26. 

"May naitutulong po ba ang mga walang-basehang spekulasyon, lalo na kung lumalabas ka sa telebisyon at sinusubaybayan ng sambayanan? Kung nagbabangkaaan lang tayo sa kanto, hindi problema ang mga walang-basehang patutsada. Pero kung alam mong opinion maker ka, alam mo rin dapat na meron kang responsibilidad. Sana po, sa tuwing sasabihin nating 'magandang gabi, bayan,' ay totoong hinahangad nating maging maganda ang gabi ng bayan," he said.

De Castro has yet to comment on Aquino's statements. Ging Reyes, head of ABS-CBN's News and Current Affairs Division (NCAD), said: "Criticism is not a monopoly of journalists and media practitioners. The President had as much right to free speech as every citizen. Ang aming mga mamahayag ay may editorial independence, o kalayaan sa kanilang pagkalap ng balita at paglalahad ng istorya," Reyes said on TV Patrol Monday. "Ito ang pundasyon ng kredibilidad. Sa mga pagkakataong kinukwestyon ang aming pagiging patas at balanse, mayroon kaming sistema para tugunan ang ganitong reklamo ng manonood," she added.

TAX For Online Traders and Entrepreneurs



Attention: Online traders and entrepreneurs

The Bureau of Internal Revenue will start going after those who fail to issue electronic invoices to customers this year.

Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares told reporters that online businesses, such as the following:
  • sulit.com.ph
  • e-bay Philippines
  • alibaba.com
  • ayosdito.ph 
  • multiply.com 
These are just sample businesses that need to be registered with the BIR and should be paying the corresponding taxes.

The tax will cover even those entrepreneurs who use their personal Facebook accounts for business transactions.

"They are all bound by the law to comply with the invoicing requirement. Under the rules, online sellers shall be registered as such to the BIR, and that their electronic invoicing shall likewise be registered either directly to us or a third-party accredited by us", quips BIR Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares

The electronic invoicing could be availed of through a third party, but such third-party shall be accredited by the BIR. Meaning, private parties could participate and get the necessary accreditation from BIR.

Citing Section 237 of the National Internal Revenue Code, the BIR chief said the bureau need not issue a revenue regulation to implement the law requiring the issuance of receipts and sales invoices for online transactions as well as penalties for non-compliance.

SODERNO: Ultimate Taste Test


SODERNO: Ultimate Taste Test

From its humble beginnings as a ‘taste test’ among friends and neighbors, the Ultimate Taste Test has become a sold-out event drawing in thousands of foodies eager to try the latest food discoveries.

“Many home-based cooks and up-and-coming chefs would send me their dishes and asked if I could review their dishes on my blog. But I just eat all of those food samples!” recounts Anton Diaz, the popular food and travel blogger behind. www.OurAwesomePlanet.com

“Instead of eating all those samples, I thought not only of sharing these dishes with my readers but also giving them an opportunity to rate these dishes as well. That was how the Ultimate Taste Test was born.”

“In fact, many of the pioneer vendors of Mercato Centrale – the weekend food market that we organized along with partners RJ and Vanessa Ledesma and Gary and Janice Villanueva – were winners of previous Ultimate Taste Test.” Anton adds. “They include Dulcelin Gourmet specialties, Supreme Brazo, Angus Beef Tapa, Risa Chocolates, and Merry Moo Premium Ice Cream.”

The latest edition of the Ultimate Taste Test was recently held at Soderno Food Market in Molito Commercial Center, Alabang much to the delight of Southern-based food enthusiasts. Each attendee received a ‘passport’ where they rated the food and drinks samples of all the participating food entrepreneurs, which included innovative and specialty dishes from Margie’s Paella Negra, Frisch’s Liquor Ice Cream, Hizon’s premium flavored sorbets, Nina’s Grill’s fried pork and chicken isaw, Carlo’s Kitchen’s crunchy pork belly, Sober Club’s mocktails, Mama Lout’s Panzarotti, Merry Moo’s bacon chocolate ice cream and more.  

The top five winners of the latest Ultimate Taste Test will not only be featured in the www.OurAwesomePlanet.com blog, but they will also be given a free month’s stay in any of the Mercato Centrale-managed food markets which include Soderno in Alabang, Distrito in Makati, Mezza Norte in Quezon City and Mercato Centrale in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

For interested chefs, bakers and food entrepreneurs who are interested to participate in the next Ultimate Taste Test, please contact rache@diaz.ph or 09175318949. 


VIRAL PHOTO: TEXT SCAMMER ASKING FOR A LOAD


I remember a family friend who got scammed by this modus operandi. She thought it was her daughter who works overseas who texted her and asked for a load. She told us that my kinakapatid(J) changed her international roaming number and they will put a little loading business. It turned out to be a text scammer. Tita R lost Php 5,000 worth of load. It was her hard earned money. I pity her. But what can I do?

So when I saw this viral photo, I really laughed when the text scammer got a dose of his/ her own medicine. Ha ha! It serves them right. I wish the police/ NBI caught them and put them in jail for fooling people and stealing other people's load.

If ever you receive a similar text message, give them a ride so they will stop fooling people.
