Traffic during Holy Week is usually not heavy which is why Filipinos choose to go their provinces as they know for certain that it’s going to be a smooth ride.

THE country’s vulnerability and tolerance to a culture of corruption cannot be more evident than the alleged P 10 billion pork barrel scam that has implicated at least three senators.

I’m not a fan of activism but when I saw Akbayan group in news yelling at Chinese embassy and shouting  “West Philippine Sea is ours and China do you know how to measure” made me realize that we as   Filipinos have a role to play and that is to fight and protect our territory and sovereignty.

 I am writing in response to the January 15 article published by Malaya entitled “OFW hiring in Taiwan difficult.” In the article, MECO Chairman Amadeo Perez was quoted saying that “there are instances when Taiwanese brokers demand ‘under-the-table’ fees of as much as P50,000 one time fee.”

We Filipinos rejoice at Pambansang Kamao’s winning over his opponent Bam Rios yesterday, and his promise to visit Tacloban City when he arrives from Macau. For a while, the typhoon victims’ spirits were lifted as their eyes remained glued to a big TV screen set-up for them as well as for the volunteers as Manny Pacquiao proved himself a world champion once again.

Still on the Misuari escapade

The discovery of an identification card (ID) on a slain rebel by government troops of Ustadz Khabir Malik, an MNLF lieutenant of Mr. Nur Misuari, suggests that Malik and the MNLF are trying to mislead the military authorities. They know that they will soon be cornered, made pawns out of their comrades to let Mr. Malik escape to safety. However in my opinion, it is better for Malik to be captured alive than dead for in all probability, they will hail him for his “martyrdom”. And in so doing will agitate Moro factions and to take up arms against the government.
