INSTAGRAM WAR:Sunshine Cruz-Montano Vs. Krista Miller


INSTAGRAM WAR:Sunshine Cruz-Montano Vs. Krista Miller


"Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned"- An Insensitive Man

The girl in the picture is Cesar Montano's alleged flavor of the month. Allegedly, this isn't the first time Montano has been linked to another woman since his marriage with Cruz 12 years ago.
Everybody got surprised when Sunshine Cruz-Montano posted on Twitter and in instagram pictures lambasting Cezar's alleged other woman. After discovering that a number of her gifts to husband Cesar Montano are now in the hands of a woman who co-stars with him in an upcoming film.
Sunshine said that even her kids know the"girl" who allegedly goes with the name Kristalyn Engel aka Krista Miller, because it was her kids who called her attention about the matter, because allegedly Krista keep on sending provocative and sexy pictures and messages to her husband Cezar for weeks.

In a series of posts on Instagram, which have also been deleted, Miller shared photos of an Abercombie and Fitch shirt for men, a pack of chocolates and an iPhone 5.

Allegedly, Sunshine found out that the iphone5 and men's shirt she gave to Cezar not to mention the chocolate from her sister-in-law was posted in Instagram by Krista. A big ouch for the legal wife Sunshine. Which prompted Geneva Cruz to react as well in defense of her cousin Sunshine.

shinemontano: I have been quiet. Weeks of texting and sending photos. I was REALLY QUIET but don't you know the meaning of being DISCREET? I BOUGHT THAT SHIRT and it is a guy's shirt for heaven's sake! The chocolate is from my sis in law and that is my iphone5. Di mo na dapat pinagmamalaki sa social networking.
Sunshine Cruz-Montano also responded to another photo post of Miller, which has the caption, "I hope one day, I'll be your first priority."
The actress said, mentioning Miller's account, "You might soon be his first priority. Pagdasal mo."
 
On Thursday night, Geneva Cruz said, "Mess w/ @shinemontano & you'll mess w/ our whole family too. We come in peace, pero konting respeto naman, babae ka rin. @iamkristamiller"

She added, "Get ready to attack a recent invader of a family member. :p #trespassing @Somimilicious"

Addressing Miller, Geneva said in a series of "tweets," "I'll never understand it! And I refuse to do so. Hooking up with unavailable married men is death. There's no logic. No responsibility."

"Girl, maybe if you treated yourself with some much needed respect you could win yourself a husband too! You are so insensitive. What are you a non-living thing? Purchase your own husband & get off my cousin's. It's never too late to change," she said.

Sunshine Cruz ,Cesar Montano and kids during happier times.

On microblogging site Twitter, Cruz directly addressed Miller via a "mention," telling her to "have the decency to return the iPhone 5. I'm sure you can do better that that."

SINULOG FESTIVAL: Carousel Grand Parade Route


SINULOG FESTIVAL: Carousel Grand Parade Route

Fast Facts and Tips:
  • The carousel route of the Sinulog Grand Parade on Sunday, January 20, 2012 is 5.91 kilometers long.
  • Please note that the streets where the parade will pass through will be closed all day so be ready for a long walk.
  • Don't forget to wear comfortable footwear.  
  • Please do wear light clothes as well ( self-explanatory you can't wear a gown and rush to the maddening crowd lol)
  • In the past Sinulog Festivals there were sudden downpours so you might want to be ready with your rain gear as well.
  • It is always better to travel early in the morning and late at night to avoid the mad crowd.
  • Expect heavy traffic and limited transportation - meaning jeepneys and taxi will be hard to come by so don't bother waiting for transpo on one spot only, you might end up frustrated.
  • Food abound in Cebu so don't you worry. A lot of choices are available to suit every budget.  
  • Medics and other support staff in areas where there is action are on standby. 
  • There will be parties for all three Sinulog nights from Friday through Sunday.
Here is the route map for the Sto. Niño Procession on Saturday.

How to commute from Legaspi Airport


How to commute from Legaspi Airport

Bicol is very near Manila. As a matter of fact, the plane ride from Manila to Legaspi will only take around 45 minutes. 

Transportation to the Legaspi Satellite Bus Terminal or other parts of Legaspi from the airport: 
  • Tricycle
  • Jeep
  • Taxi
  •  Van for hire
  •  Hotel Coaster
Tricycle
  
Tricycles can be found inside the compound of the airport but their price ranges from Php 50 to Php 100. Keyword: Haggle. If they still insist on charging you that price then walk towards the gate of the airport. Outside the gate, you will find tricycles that charge from Php 20 to Php40 only, depending on how good your haggling skills are.

Jeep 

If you travel on a shoestring like me and you can manage to carry all you suitcases, then travel via jeepney like me where I only pay a fare of Php 8.00 going to the Central terminal in Legazpi.

How to find that jeepney?

Go out of the airport's gate and walk towards your left (Landmark is the anchor saying welcome to Albay.) then walk straight ahead. You will find a lot of jeepneys at the end of that road. Facing that road, ride the jeepney going to the left on the other side of the road (Yes, you have to cross the road) to go to the central terminal. Fare is only Php 8.00.

Taxi

Unfortunately, there are only five (5) taxi cabs at that time when we went to Legaspi. So they are hard to come by. They use taxi meter and they are clean, fast and the fare is cheap, even cheaper than fares charged by tricycles.

Van for hire

If you are a solo traveler, it is not practical to hire these vans but if you are in a group, consisting of at least ten (10) people then negotiate with them. Price ranges from Php 500 to several thousands depending on your agreement. I even had an experience when after almost all my co-passengers were gone, a van agreed to bring me to the terminal for only Php 20.00 o saan ka pa :-P!

Hotel Coaster 
  
This mode of transportation won't bring you to the terminal but to their respective hotels but at least it is free and you can ride a tricycle in front of the hotel. Tricycle along the highway or in Centro to the terminal would only be Php 8.00.

Enjoy your travels! Keep safe!


VILLAR FOUNDATION: Partners Anew with DZRH in Cleaning up Manila Bay


VILLAR FOUNDATION: Partners Anew with DZRH in Cleaning up Manila Bay
 
"The future of mankind can be assured only if we rediscover ways in which to live as a part of nature, not apart from her" - HRH The Prince of Wales addressing UN climate conference COP15, Copenhagen (December 2009)

Each one of us must do our share in protecting our environment. After all we only have one planet to live in. As what HRH Prince Philip said: "The conservation of nature, the proper care for the human environment and a general concern for the long-term future of the whole of our planet are absolutely vital if future generations are to have a chance to enjoy their existence on this earth."
 
Some people uses words without action and nothing is more hateful than that and there are others who silently act without any words. Imagine my happiness when I was introduce to the different projects of the Villar Foundation in 2012. Upon observing their various projects my faith was restored that rehabilitation of our environment can still be done if we act together. Villar Foundatio is continuing its partnership with DZRH’s ‘Makabagong Bayanihan Manila Bay Clean Up.” Last year, MISIS Cynthia Villar, Managing Director of the foundation, inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Manila Broadcasting Company (MBC) represented by radio station DZRH in its Manila Bay Clean up drive.

In addition to the weekly clean up of Villar Foundation volunteers together with students and other volunteers they also recently conducted a clean up drive with DZRH According to Mrs. Cynthia Villar the more partners they work with, the better it will be for the environment. The last clean up of the foundation with DZRH was on August 25 last year.


The clean up covers the entire stretch of Manila Bay. The Villar Foundation will take charge of the Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat & Eco-Tourism Area (LPPCHEA), the same site where they do their regular clean up. 


Also known as the Freedom Island, LPPCHRA is accessible from the Coastal Road. The target area will be the open beach areas facing out to the Manila Bay.


“We are pleased with the improvement that we are seeing at LPPCHEA. The number of truckloads of garbage that we are getting here has considerably decreased and we attribute that to our consistent clean up efforts,” cited Villar.


The Villar Foundation will be joined by at least 1,000 volunteers from schools, barangays, NGOs, socio-civic organizations, and other private individuals and groups. 


According to her, the days following a typhoon, are usually the period when most garbages have been collected from the area since wastes from as far away as Cavite are being dragged by the storm surge in the area. And the garbage takes weeks or even more than a month to be collected.


“Clean up plays a big factor but in the long run, we really need to discipline the people and make them aware of the consequences of their indiscriminate throwing and dumping of garbage. The immense flooding that we have experienced in recent years should send a clear signal already of the environmental degradation of Manila Bay and other waterways in our country,” added Villar. 


As per the MoA, MBC or DZRH will lead the Manila Bay Cleanup project along the coastline of Manila Bay from Navotas to Bacoor, Cavite “to help promote any and all efforts in relation to the promotion of sustainable ecosystem of Manila Bay”.


The clean up activities will take place from 7am to 11am onwards and the garbage collected will be turned over to appropriate government solid waste collector in the area.


“The Villar Foundation and DZRH agree that this is a joint cooperative undertaking, but more importantly, it is a major public service activity that shall help contribute to the promotion of a livable, healthier and ecological sustainable Manila Bay,” cited the MoA.


Villar has been vocal about her strong support for the protection of Manila Bay. To recall on March 16 last year, she filed a petition for Writ of Kalikasan against a Manila Bay reclamation project that is seen to cause catastrophic flooding in the area. The Supreme Court granted her petition and issued a Writ of Kalikasan on April 10.


“We will continue to support campaigns or drives to protect Manila Bay and neighboring areas including LPPCHEA. Moreover, we will continue to oppose projects that will cause damage and destruction to the bay and nearby cities,” cited Villar. If carried out, the Manila Bay reclamation project that Villar is opposing is seen to cause severe flooding in numerous barangays -- 11 in Parañaque, 37 in Bacoor and 17 in Las Piñas.
