This day in history from:

No rest for the Punzster

Just arrived from the north this early morning.

Did not catch any sleep because I had to prepare for a filing with the Supreme Court that may probably take most of the day.

Then off to a meeting from afternoon to sometime at night.

Which energy drink do you recommend? I think I'm going to need it today...

Murphy's Law

"If anything can go wrong, it will."

That was the slogan for the day yesterday. I helped my cousin out putting his presentation for his induction as chapter president of a local professional organization here in the north.

The computer worked perfectly, the display didn't.

When the display worked, the audio didn't.

When the audio worked, the person didn't.

Oh I surely miss DSL... dial-ups are just plain the pits!

But I won't take too much of your time today because I have to rest up for my hearing tomorrow morning.

Catch you later...

Off again (on again)

I have not yet confirmed it but I'm off again to the North tonight to attend a hearing. I'll be out for most of the workweek.

So if you don't hear from me, you know what it means.


(Postscript: It's confirmed so you'll probably hear from me on Friday night...)

Keys Me Alyssa

Alyssa tinawanan lang ang kumakalat na video sa internet
Article posted June 23, 2006 here. From a GMA video report available here.

Matamis na ngiti lang ang isinukli ng dating ‘Viva Hotbabes’ na si Alyssa Alano kaugnay sa kumakalat niyang video sa internet na mayroon maling subtitle sa ginawang niyang pagkanta sa ‘Master Showman present’ kamakailan.

Pahayag ng magandang dilag, hindi niya alam ang tungkol dito at first time niya itong makita. “Natatawa ako. Ok lang ‘yan, at least ‘di ba marami akong napapasayang tao,” aniya.

Depensa pa ni Alyssa, kabisado naman niya ang lyrics ng kanta kaya nagtataka siya kung bakit mali-mali ang inilagay na subtitles. “Gusto nila ulitin ko ulit (ang kanta),” pabiro pa niyang hamon.

{English Translation}
Alyssa Alano laughs off her internet video

Viva Hotbabe Alyssa Alano reacted only with a sweet smile regarding the recent video recording of her performance in "Master Showman" of a song that had wrong subtitles now sweeping the internet.

She said she did not know anything about this and it was the first time she saw the video. "I laughed, but it's ok, at least I made a lot of people very happy," she added.

She defended herself by saying she knew the lyrics of the song so she was surprised why they got the subtitles all wrong. "They even wanted me to perform the song again," she jokingly dared.

[Translated in Alyssa]

She pretended herself by opening her mouth, saying she knew the sylvimousse is barkley and she was shocked y the wurds that changed color wur all long.

"Dey ivan like me to song the sung all ober a-gain for teh second taym once more."
"This is just a joke, done all in good fun, This is a disclaimer... and a recording.... BEEEEP!"

For better...

Ever wished that at some instant or in an instant, your life completely changes, turns around for the better?

Let's all hope that this point comes for all of us. I wish mine would.

Happy weekend everyone.

This day in history from:

Money thing...

I really don't believe the additional funding thrown to fight corruption and insurgency will work.

They're just throwing good money after bad. That's just money flushed down the toilet.

First, I have been in government long enough to know the restrictions in finding.

Allegedly, the concerned offices will use the additional funding against corrpution to hire more investigators. That would not happen. For that, these offices have to create new civil service items (actual office positions) that would not be possible without legislation (specifically a general appropriation act).

So where would this additional funding go? It will just go to the chief's discretionary fund. While granted, there are audit checks and balances available, there are equally creative minds that find loopholes to spend the money creatively.

As the old Philippine saying goes, "Kung gusto maraming dahilan, kung ayaw maraming dahilan" (If desired, there are a lot of justifications/reasons, if not desired, a lot of excuses.)

Add to that the traditional thinking that additional money for an anti-corruption system that is itself corrupt is useless. It's like anti-virus software that is likewise infected with the same virus it seeks to cure. That system will tend to look the other way and not detect the virus in the first place.

Just recently, the PNP made questionable purchases of equipment, citing the exemptions to the Philippine bidding laws. There goes the creative minds at work. As a lawyer, I know these cited exemptions are legally defensible. But arguing from the exemptions rather than the general rule betrays the true intention of purchase. It just demonstrates the purchasers' lack of good faith and transparency. It just shows somebody will be favored, for whatever reason.

Republic Act No. 9184 (the main law for government procurement) has the following purposes:

(a) Transparency in the procurement process and in the implementation of procurement contracts.

(b) Competitiveness by extending equal opportunity to enable private contracting parties who are eligible and qualified to participate in public bidding.

(c) Streamlined procurement process that will uniformly apply to all government procurement. The procurement process shall simple and made adaptable to advances in modern technology in order to ensure an effective and efficient method.

(d) System of accountability where both the public officials directly or indirectly involved in the procurement process as well as in the implementation of procurement contracts and the private parties that deal with government are, when warranted by circumstances, investigated and held liable for their actions relative thereto.

(e) Public monitoring of the procurement process and the implementation of awarded contracts with the end in view of guaranteeing that these contracts are awarded pursuant to the provisions of this Act and its implementing rules and regulations, and that all these contracts are performed strictly according to specifications.

Arguing immediately from the exemptions instead of following the general rule (to conduct competitive public bidding) immediately tells you someting. And the reasons stated above get thrown out of the window.

Add to that the "burning desire" to want in on the anti-insurgency drive, you immediately smell a rat.

Finally, money is not the solution to societal problems. As a matter of fact, money is the problem, the sickness that has to be cured. Now, it's all about the money. And that's the problem. That's what's bothering me about all of this money being thrown around.

Don't ask me why, but this is my current favorite song, Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado (featuring Timbaland). Don't ask me why I'm currently into YouTube, either...


(Lyrics by Attitude/T.Mosley/N.Furtado)

Am I throwing you off? Nope. Didn't think so.
How you doing young lady
The feeling that you give me really drive me crazy
You're dope have a player by the choke
I was at a loss for words first time that we spoke
You're looking for a girl that'll treat you right
Have you lookin' for her in the daytime with a light
You might be the type if I play my cards right
I'll find out by the end of the night

You expect me to just let you hit it
But will you still respect me if you get it
All I can do is try give me one chance
What's the problem I don't se no ring on your hand
I'll be the first to admit I'm curious about you you seem so innocent
You wanna get in my world get lost in it
Boy I'm tired of runnin' let's walk for a minute

Promiscuous girl wherever you are
I'm all alone and it's you that I want
Promiscuous boy you already know
That I'm all yours what you waiting for
Promiscuous girl you're teasing me
You know what I want and I got what you need
Promiscuous boy let's get to the point
Cuz we're on a roll
You ready?

Roses are red some diamonds are blue
Chivalry is dead but you're still kinda cute
I can't take my mind off you
Where you at do you mind if I come through
I'm out of this world come with me to my planet
Get you on my level do you think that you can handle it
They call me Thomas last name Crowne
Recognize game I'm'a lay mines down
I'm a big girl I can handle myself
But if I get lonely I may need your help
Pay attention to me I don't talk for my health
I want you on my team so does everybody else
Shh maybe we can keep it on the low
Let your guard down ain’t nobody gotta know
If you with it girl I know a place we can go
What kind of girl do you take me for?

Don't get mad don't be mean don't get mad don't be mean

Wait I don't mean no harm
I can see you with my t-shirt on
I can see you with nothin' on
Feelin' on me before you bring that on
Bring that on?
You know what I mean
Girl I'm a freak you shouldn't say those things
I'm only trynna get inside of your brain
To see if you can work me the way you say
Its okay it's alright I got something that you're gonna like
Is it the truth or are you talking trash
Is your game MVP like Steve Nash?

Promiscuous boy I'm calling your name
But you're driving me crazy the way you're making me wait
Promiscuous boy we're one and the same so we don't gotta play games no more
Oh yeah oh yeah

Model Parent...?

I'm flabergasted.

Just because a person is oozing money to take care of one's kids, that person can be given a "Ulirang Magulang" (Model Parent) award? Even if that person has a child out of wedlock?

Do they have anyone else more deserving to give this distinction? Where are our values going? Down the toilet? Are these people the role models of today?

Any parent will surely want to take care of his kids, especially one with huge financial resources to do it. There is nothing exemplary and extraordinary about it.

But show me a parent who despite not having a spouse (due to death or any other cause) and hence, limited financial resources, put all his/her children through college. That to me is a model parent.

Despite adversity and "disabilities," a parent prevailed and raised the children into productive members of society. That's a role model for me.

My maternal grandmother was awarded a similar honor in her province about twenty years ago. And she truly deserved it. Despite being a widow, and with meager financial resources, she put through all her eight children through college. She produced 4 teachers, a CPA, a dentist, a judge (lawyer) and an architect.

Show me someone who choose to take care of abandoned, orphaned, neglected children, even if that person has no obligation or responsibility to do so. That's a model parent.

Anything incomparable to it, such as so-called "famous" parents merely awarded model parent honors merely by virtue of their fame, is just plain wrong.

What a cheap trick!

I was reading this article on a famous interviewer with a catchy headline today.

But reading on, it turned out to be a cleverly disguised advertisement/endorsement for a cable company.

What a cheap trick! There ought to be something that would require these advertisers to clearly indicate that they are advertising. And I thought it was a "legitimate" article. Aaaauuuggghhhhh!

Setting Sail

I have often wondered, when will my career break come?

When will my ship set sail?

I hope it will be soon because I find myself drowning in mundane work, deep in ordinary cases.

Anyway, Father's Day went well and I actually got to play in our parish church over at Commonwealth Avenue. (Guess? There's only one big church there.)

And I finally managed to finish that darn pleading that I have not done because I lacked the drive to do. Had to wake up at 3:00 a.m. to finish it. Just a few revisions and it will be good for filing.

But since I am a solo practitioner, I do my own filing. And filing that pleading is another adventure all by itself.

Oh, I mentioned sometime before I would do a eulogy for my heart. That day has come but I still don't have heart (pardon the pun) to make it yet. Perhaps, a few stiff drinks ought to do it.

That ship, my friend, has sailed, though I still see it in the horizon.

Anyway, tomorrow is another day. Perhaps my ship would set sail then? Nah, probably not.

I better shut up now because I'm probably not making sense to you... But I think someone will pick this one up...

How about another break?

Let's take a break...

The hottest Philippine video on YouTube is currently Keys Me, recording a performance by a certain Viva Hotbabe Alyssa Alano in some GMA-7 TV show, where she butchered the song "Kiss Me" of Sixpence None the Richer:

Keys Me
Performed by Alyssa Alano

Keys me
Beat in the Verdict Valeey...
V-side the green green grass
Swing Swing
Swing the spinny stef
You wur the shoez and I will wear the dress

Keys me
V-neat d milke twalay
Leeeeep me
Al-out the moonlit floor
Leaf your open hand
Strike entebend end make d parflays dance
Sylvimousse Is barkley
So keys me...

Keys me
Down by the flow can
3 How...
Of Twin vee
Of Funne Hungee Tay
Bring bring
Bing your flower head
Will take dachay make on yours father's melt

Keys me
V-neat d milke twalay
Tixt me
Al-out the moonlit floor
Leaf your open hand
Strike entebend end make d parflays dance
Sylvimousse is barkley

Al-out the moonlit floor
Leaf your open hand
Strike entebend
End make d parflays dance
Is barkley
So keys me...
So keys me...
So keys me...
So keys me...
So keys me...

Here's the original lyrics for comparison:

Kiss Me
By Sixpence None the Richer

Kiss me
out of the bearded barley
beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing,
swing the spinning step
You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress.

Oh, kiss me
beneath the milky twilight
Lead me
out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band
and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me
down by the broken tree house
Swing me
upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring,
bring your flowered hat
We'll take the trail marked on your father's map

Oh, kiss me
beneath the milky twilight
Lead me
out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band
and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me


Oh, kiss me
beneath the milky twilight
Lead me
out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band
and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me
So kiss me
So kiss me
So kiss me
So kiss me

(Thanks to Cat for the heads-up.)

Fatherly things...

Treated my family out this afternoon for Father's day, since most of us have other things to do tomorrow. The kids enjoyed the time out, especially Nico, who does not go out often. My parents enjoyed themselves, too.

Tomorrow, I'll do some fatherly things, like going to the grocery store and getting Bea something to eat for school. You mothers know this.

Anyway, just posting this short entry before choir practice. I'll do my Father's day spiel tomorrow. And boy, I'm thinking of saying something radical... And there's the wedding tomorrow of someone I know which I will not attend, for the life of me. I'll probably need a drink or two by them.

Got to go. Choir.

Do the math (again)...

There is a serious question that bugs my mind...

How can a President, who probably earns less than a junior executive in a bank, in an economy that is suffering last year and still continues to suffer, given also a world economy under the same hole actually EARN money during these times? She must probably be a financial genius!

I just hope our President transplants her secrets to this personal financial success into the Philippine economy. That's what we are paying her to do.

And you know what bugs me even more? The quote you see above was lifted verbatim from my previous post here more than a year ago.

It seems like in these trying times where all Filipinos are suffering from the rising prices, she's the only one actually EARNING MONEY for the second year in a row per reports (and who knows since when) while maintaining a full time job that cannot possibly fill her family's expenses.


If in accordance with the [law], a public official has been found to have acquired during his incumbency, whether in his name or in the name of other persons, an amount of property and/or money manifestly out of proportion to his salary and to his other lawful income, that fact shall be a ground for dismissal or removal. Properties in the name of the spouse and unmarried children of such public official may be taken into consideration, when their acquisition through legitimate means cannot be satisfactorily shown. Bank deposits shall be taken into consideration in the enforcement of this section, notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary. (Empasis supplied; from Section 8, Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act)
They have a lot of explaining to do... specially during this impeachment season...

Abenojar's Second Everest

The lack of media fanfare as Dale Abenojar returns to the Philippines shows that he faces his second uphill climb-- proving he was the first.

The Philippine Everest Team already laid his Base Camp for him. As early as the end of May, this team, with a giant media organization that does not have a choice but to back them, already disputed Dale's claim by citing reasons such as his lack of experience, etc.

Of course, the people who claim to be the first, Leo Oracion and Pastour Emata, would definitely be Camps 2 and 3. Their professional reputations are likewise on the line. Already, Oracion stated Abenojar could have scaled another peak because he allegedly did not see what was seen in Dale's picture.

And who are we to tell? We have not been there.

But Camp 4 would definitely be the media organization that placed its bet on the Philippine Everest Team. That would not care about the truth anymore, with the amount of money it sunk in. And it could sink in some more money to defend the claim, by bringing forth experts upon experts to dispute the conflicting claim. Or it could just simply ignore the conflicting claim and let it die from lack of attention.

Anyway, Dale Abenojar better get his sherpa for what could be an even greater challenge of his life. I suggest he get the rival media organization to help him. You know, the one that also has an interest in embarrasing its rival any chance it gets...

Smart Alecks...

Work actually cures depression. So I tried to do some errands (some court follow-ups) and reported for my government consultancy at around noon, after I fetched Bea from school.

It actually worked. Depression is wearing off...

Also, for the life of me, I think I saw Warmstone walking towards SM North EDSA at around noon... Chatting with her now. And she confirms it...! She didn't recognize me...

And still another round

Had another (and I hope final) round with the wily veteran I have blogged about here and here.

Sometimes, parties agree to submit issues for decision without hearing and hence, without the judge present. That was the case for today.

The lady lawyer (representing our co-defendant) merely moved to submit the issue of the restraining order for decision. I joined her motion to resolve the issue and end the "hearing" as quickly as possible.

The wily veteran, sensing no actual hearing shall take place (and hence, may not be paid), wanted to make a manifestation. The court staff almost made a beeline to call the judge.

With impatience, I said to make his manifestion in writing, so we can actually counter that. The court staff agreed and insisted that be so. The wily veteran had no choice but to capitulate because we were all leaving the courtroom. And there went his chances of getting paid his appearance fees for today.

Sweet revenge of sorts.

First Day of School/Choke Artist

It's Bea's first day of school and taking her there was not too much trouble, unlike the past years.

I think she already has a set of friends that made letting her go there easier.

But, she has shortened periods for this week and my sister cannot fetch her so it's up to me to do it. Good thing the old schedule is a little loose this week and the agenda consists mostly of paperwork.


Anyway, I was watching the Sharapova vs. Safina match last night and it was the first time I saw Sharapova in action. And I was shocked that she was such a choke artist and fast becoming only a pretty face like her compatriot, Anna Kournikova.

OMG! She missed two serve outs for the win @ 5-2 and @ 5-4 and then Safina pounced to win the set and the match @ 7-5, 2-6 and 7-5.

And I thought she was more than just a pretty face. But then she choked on a lesser ranked player. Disappointing. I'll probably not watch her play again. But of course, I will not tire watch her doing other things... oogle...

Lindsay on Probation

Major bummer last night.

Just a simple manipulation the name of my "home directory" of my documents in Lindsay, in the quest of changing what is known as my "short name." You see, the "initials" of the short name there are not mine because someone else's was placed there before I got my hands on her.

And that was it. 30 gigs of documents, music, downloads and pictures... gone. I have back ups of the documents in my other computers and my flash disk(s). The music and all of the pictures, however, are gone. The only copy I have of the are found in my iPod and I have not figured out how to fish them out of there back to Lindsay without erasing my iPod.

They say trust is like a cystal glass. One broken, could never be repaired. So Lindsay is on probation now and my iPod is now way going near her for now. Hope my iPod does not break down that it would need reconnection.

In fairness to her, it was my fault and Lindsay did not crash on me. On the other hand, loosing your files should not be as easy as that. But then again, that attempt was more of a vanity thing... so it was, again, really my fault.

But then again (again...), I'm enjoying the 30Gigs that incident freed up. Lindsay seems to be breathing better...

We had the same reason for doing this: we had children in sick bay. Anyway, my job there is actually done. And I'm not much of a shopper, anyway.

Just arrived from a bus ride that normally takes 5 to 6 hours during the day. The night trips just take around 4, with only one stop-over.
