marco_wedding_hands LET ME BEGIN THIS post by saying that I am genuinely happy for ex-future president Mar Roxas and his ex-girlfriend, the ex-future First Lady Korina Sanchez, who is now a certified madrasta.

Congratulations, best wishes, and most importantly, good luck!

Unknown to many, I was one of the hundreds of uninvited folks who endured the smoldering heat outside Sto. Domingo Church in Quezon City to witness the event dubbed by local media as the “People’s Wedding” and “Kasalan ng Taon.” Dozens of politicians attended the ceremony, probably the reason why it was hotter inside the church.

The truth is: Conrado De Quiros and I were sent wedding invitations by Senator Roxas. However, Korina insisted that we apologize first before security personnel could allow us inside. In short, “No Sorry, No Entry.” De Quiros replied, “I’d rather wait for Noynoy’s wedding.” But the PDI columnist admits he doesn’t have any idea if it will ever happen since “Sa lahat ng pulitikong may girlfriend, si Noynoy lamang ang hindi atat na atat mag-asawa.”

marco_wedding_TAO As for me, I opted to be a spectator outside. Thanks to the giant video wall that was installed in front of the church for ordinary people to see the wedding. If it’s any consolation, I was beside the GMA 7 news team. You just have to admire those guys. They were so prepared for the special coverage! In fact, they brought their 3G phones in case the video wall suffered technical glitches!

The ceremony was pushed back to 4 o’clock because the bride wasn’t around yet at the originally-scheduled 3PM rites. It turned out that from the Intercon Hotel in Makati, Korina first went to Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City to pay respects to her departed parents – in her bridal gown! She plans to do the same this coming All Saints Day.

Trivia: Ano o sino ang nakikita n’yo sa larawan?
A: Parada ng santong sikreto pa ang identity
B: Prusisyon ng mahiyaing birhen!
C: Si Korina ‘yan. May GMA 7 crew kasi sa labas kaya pilit itinago!
D: Duh! Basta ang alam ko kamukha ni JV Ejercito ‘yung lalaking naka-blue

Deviating from the norm, Korina Sanchez did not wear a veil to cover her face. It was a personal and tactical request, as she wanted to make sure that neither Sen. Francis Pangilinan nor reporter RG Cruz could go near her.

As the Inquirer reported, politics took a backseat at the celebrity-studded event. Everyone was there: from the stalwarts of the Liberal Party to members of Erap’s company and even allies of the ruling Lakas-CMD-Kampi. The only VIP missing was Loren Legarda who reportedly got sick because of climate change.

The almost nonagenarian, former Senate President Jovito Salonga, a principal sponsor was present. Loren Legarda would have enjoyed talking to him.

marco_wed_noy Among the guests, presidential aspirant Noynoy Aquino was greeted with the loudest applause. The only other time he received such applause from the public was when he told his sister Kris Aquino to “shut up.”

Congressman Teofisto “TG” Guingona III almost didn’t make it to the occasion. Good thing he resigned from the Nacionalista Party on time.

During the offertory, former Chief Justice Artemio Panganiban, a principal sponsor offered chalice and wine. Another principal sponsor, Rosa Rosal offered blood.

Reports say Sen. Mar Roxas wrote his own wedding vow… which was a good thing. Imagine if people behind his TV ads were tasked to write it! Baka nag-back out ‘yung bride!

marco_wed-vows But an awkward moment happened during the exchanged of vows. After Korina stated that Mar was the fulfillment of everything she ever wanted in a husband; Roxas slipped, and said that Sanchez was the fulfillment of everything he ever wanted in a political endorser.

Yet another awkward thing happened at the reception. When relatives of the groom conducted a survey and asked guests if they wanted the couple to have a baby before the elections, 30 percent chose YES while 10 percent chose NO. The remaining 60 percent chose Noynoy Aquino!

A minor commotion ensued during the traditional tossing of the bridal bouquet. When Korina Sanchez tossed it, the bouquet landed on Vicki Belo’s face, and P100,000 worth of Botox squirted out.

marco-wedding-kiss2 According to the Philippine Star, at the end of the matrimonial ceremony, “Mar and Korina kissed for 11 seconds.” But the Philippine Daily Inquirer said, “the couple kissed for three minutes according to a reliable source who requested anonymity.” The Manila Bulletin merely described it as “a beautiful kiss” while Abante Tonite’s banner headline said, “Nasarapan sa halikan!”

Postscript: In case you missed snippets of the wedding on TV, just follow Inquirer columnist and Liberal Party supporter Manolo Quezon on Twitter. He tweeted a detailed account of the event: blow-by-blow. Good job!

chiz-announce IN OTHER NEWS
SENATOR FRANCIS JOSEPH ESCUDERO has announced his resignation from his party, the Nationalist People’s Coalition shocking not only his party mates but the members of the press as well who expected him to declare his presidential bid in a hastily-organized press conference at Club Filipino Wednesday morning. Before dozens of his cheering supporters, the 40-year-old father of twins delivered a speech in Filipino, the original draft of which reached the Professional Heckler. Will be posting it on Friday.

Matapos mag-resign si Chiz sa partido, sinong kandidato ang susuportahan ng NPC? Tatakbo pa ba si Chiz sa pagka-pangulo? Ikunsidera niya kaya ang pagka-bise presidente? Ano ang mangyayari sa plano ni Loren Legarda? Sino ang magiging presidential running mate niya? At ang pinakamahalagang tanong na kamakalawa pa gustong malaman ng publiko: Bakit walang belo si Korina Sanchez sa kanyang kasal?

Survey Says
Should Noynoy Aquino marry Shalani Soledad in case he wins the presidency?
OO, Para may First Lady: 19%
NO. Ayusin muna niya ang bansa. 27%
I don’t give a damn. 54%

We have a new survey. Please vote now.

  1. anak ng…….

    sinubukan kong basahin ang pahayag ni Chiz. first two paragraphs, okay pa. Third…

    kelangan ko ng mag gulp ng much-needed air composed of Nitrogen – 78.084% , Oxygen – 20.947%, Argon – 0.934% and Carbon Dioxide – 0.033% for a subtotal of 99.998%, the rest being Neon – 18.2 parts per million, Helium – 5.2 parts per million, Krypton -1.1 parts per million, Sulfur dioxide – 1.0 parts per million, Methane – 2.0 parts per million, Hydrogen – 0.5 parts per million, Nitrous Oxide – 0.5 parts per million, Xenon – 0.09 parts per million, Ozone – 0.07 parts per million, Nitrogen dioxide – 0.02 parts per million, Iodine – 0.01 parts per million, traces of Carbon monoxide and traces of Ammonia for a grand total of 100% at baka tuluyan na akong mag koolay blue dahil kinapos ako sa hininga sa sobrang haba na walang period period.

    Great Post!


  2. Engots pala ‘tong si Chiz eh! Ano akala niya bibigay lahat ni Danding yung
    hinihiling nyang billions para sa kampanya? Syempre, bibigyan din ni
    Bossing yung mga pamangkin nyang si Gibo at Noynoy. It’s called “hedging one’s bets”.

    Kumbaga tumaya ka sa lahat so that kahit sino manalo, meron kang matatanggap na
    concessions. Danding is one of the smartest backroom operators in Philippine politics and he didn’t survive (even thrived!) this long by being stupid.

    Napaghahalata tuloy na maraming ka pang kakainin pag dating sa pulitika!. Manahimik ka na lang bilang senador hanggang 2013, your time will come.


  3. did you watch the interview of Mar and Koring in TV Patrol tonight by Ted Failon?
    TF: kumusta ang “premiere night”?
    MR: Aba! standing ovation!
    KS: Wala (pa rin) nangyari, nakanganga nga kaming nakatulog. . wala yun!
    poor virgin of 6 years. . BITIN PA RIN!

    Another Bitin: did you notice the facial expression of Chiz Campaign Manager the day before and after Chiz riddled announcement of an exit from NPC and possibly the presidential race? Shock was written all over his face. . it’s the MONEY GONE,stupid!


    1. kc feeling ng lola koring mo na prinsesa siya ng mga muslim. kailan takpan para manatili ang kanyang virginity. tse! 😀 at feeling datu naman si mar kaya hindi niya tlaga gagalawin at dungisan ang puri ni koring hanggang hindi matapos ang bagyo sa pinas!

      born a virgin! die a virgin!


  4. nice post PH. The guy in blue looks like JV Ejercito nga.

    One by one the alleged suitors of Loren are backing out. I think Chiz made the right move…When the vandidate for VP announced way ahead of the Presidential Candidate…something is wrong….then she suggest being open to team-up with other candidates (when she belongs to a political party at that ) …who dumped who?


  5. Yung mga iba diyang bilib kay Chiz, o, nong napala niyo? Lang binatbat talaga yang bata niyo sa umpisa pa lang. Dapat daw walang pinagkakautangang-loob sa anumang partido? Pwe! Aber, ulitin mo yan pag sumanib ka either kay Villar or Gibo at ng kainin mo sinabi mo. At tingnan ko kung di ka naman pulutin sa kangkungan kung mag-independent ka kaya. Isa pa, Chiz, pwede ba, ang haba-haba mong magsalita, paulit-ulit pa, la namang saysay at sustansiya pinagsasasabi mo. Kakarindi kang pakinggan!


  6. kumbaga sa SONA, binibilang nga mga gunggong na sipsip kung ilan ang palakpak na nakuha ni GMA sa speech niya..
    dito, binibilang ko mag isa kung ilang beses ako tumawa sa post na to.

    Bravo mr PH!!

    pero pwede din sigurong bilangin kung ilang beses matatawa ang mga pinoy sa SONA speech ni GMA.. kamtutinkopit… di nalalayo ang blog mo sa SONA ha. di ka na ma-reach mr PH..



  7. During the offertory, former Chief Justice Artemio Panganiban, a principal sponsor offered chalice and wine. Another principal sponsor, Rosa Rosal offered blood. – WAHAHAHAHA! This line got me empty handed ah?!

    Chiz – IMHO, His resignation from NPC is a good thing. He’s free to decide now if he still wants to continue his presidency dream or “SHUT THE EFF UP WILL YAH!” for as long as he lives.


      1. Tama ka Gil, siguro nga selos siya kaya he (PH) “was one of the hundreds of uninvited folks who endured the smoldering heat outside Sto. Domingo Church in Quezon City to witness the event dubbed by local media as the “People’s Wedding” and “Kasalan ng Taon.”


  8. Walang belo si Korina sa kanyang kasal kasi ang traditional meaning ‘ata kapag may belo eh, “Virgin Bride”, since wala ang ibig sabihin…’yun naH!

    Re: Chiz left NPC — The circumstances betray this kid’s capacity to rule, all he said for doing so is a lot of crap! Kumbaga sa hilaw na bayabas, isa siyang “bubot” para maging Presidente……


  9. Sang-ayon ako sa analysis nung isang political adviser na taga UP. Political suicide ang ginawa ni Escudero.

    Tatakbo sya bilang presidente? Anong makinarya gagamitin nya? May pera ba sya?

    Tatakbo sya bilang bise-presidente ni Gibo? Certified balimbing na sya nyan considering ang projection nya even before eh anti-administration sya.

    Tatakbo sya bilang bise-presidente ni Villar? I doubt, after making a public statement on TV! na dahil sa double insertion/C5 issue ni MONEY Villar.

    Bise-presidente ni ERAP? Pano na si Binay? bwahahahaha

    So in the end, better that he be Senator til 2013 baka makahanap ulit sya ng kabarkada. Nilag-lag na sya ni “Da Boss”, olats na si Chiz.


    1. to jayjay from singapura:

      it’s so sad to know that you as part of this country make such a disgusting comment to senator loren legarda, who happens to be a filipino also.why don’t we just give her a chance to prove herself and serve this country in a higher level, though for me she doesn’t have anything more to prove because she has contributed a lot already in this country esp in dealing with our environment.

      if i were you, don’t critize your fellow citizen. it will only make a bad impression to our country. do you know what crab mentality means? find it out for yourself!


  10. sumasakit ang ulo ko pag nakikita ko si chiz sa tv! puro salita, wala namang laman. puro paratang kulang naman sa basehan. pweh! buti na lang hindi ako registered last election, cya pa naman ang #1 senator ko sana. buti na lang at wala ako napagsisihan.

    napaka walang kwenta nman ung wedding. nagsayang lang sila ng airtime. ni isang patak ng romance, wala. si korina, parang nag rereport lang ung wedding vow. walang emosyon. mas matutuwa pa sana ako kung umiiyak sila habang binabasa ang vows, atleast alam mong may emosyon na kasama (kahit na ba hinagpis sa pagpapakasal na pulitika lamang) hayyy… hindi naman lahat siguro ng pilipino maniniwala sa kanila, at magpapauto sa kanilang Publicity…


  11. Re: Chiz

    Talagang nahilo ako habang nakatutok at pinapanood si Chiz sa TV Patrol. Di ba sya puedeng magsalita ng walang palaboy laboy? Daig nya pa script writer ng pelikula. Si Chiz, kumawala sa NPC kc hindi full support si Danding sa kanya at hindi yong kung ano anong kaekekan pinagsasabi nya. Kc kung talagang may prinsipyo syang ipinaglalaban noon pa, dapat eh umpisa pa lang na nag aaspire for Pres sya eh umalis na sya. Di lang naibigay ang bilyong hinihingi biglang nagkaroon kagad ng prinsipyo. Pesteng yawa ka Chiz.


  12. Kasi nga, ini-scale down ang kasal dapat kulambo yun na may four corners. Kumot na lang ang kinuha para maka-mura.

    I remember my cousin’s shout out sa facebook: “Anong general reaction sa Mar-Korina kiss? >>>>Eeeewwwwww…..

    Have you seen Ted Failon’s interview with the couple in TV Patrol last night?
    Ted: Kamusta ang premier night?
    Mar: Standing ovation.
    Korina: (to Mar) Oh wag ka nang magalit ha? (To Ted) To tell you honestly Ted, 3PM na kami natulog. Pareho kaming nakanganga at naghihilik sa pagod.
    “Mar, why lie about your first night?”


  13. Hintayin natin yung complete tv coverage sa November daw ng kasalang Marina at siympre yung bigwas ni PH. Don’t fail us ha? (Pasensya kung di niyo maantay at magkameron ng overtime, as usual, yung susundang program! Like Ted Failon’s initial show nung Sabado! Aba’y ba’t gan-an kayo ABS CBN? Isusumbong ko kayo kay bansot, ayaw niya ng nala-late.)


  14. @Audie:
    I believe Loren Legarda is a good and decisive leader who genuinely cares for the country and the environment. She is so able na, why would she need those presidentiable suitors? Isa pa, hindi naman siya ang naghahabol, siya ang hinahabol, kaya hindi imaginary un, ang mga nagiimagine yung mga naghahabol. Wala naman magpapakipot kung walang naghahabol diba?

    Isa pa, she’s the only candidate who has declared not only her intention to run but also her platform for the country. That is applaudible! At least may
    plano, may direction. Eh si Mar and Noynoy? Puro drama, pagbibigay kuno para sa bansa, asan ang plataporma? Si Chiz naman, may nalamamang presscon, di naman nakapagbigay ng decision.

    We need a decisive leader, tingnan mo, saan ang NPC ngaung umalis si Chiz kung wala si Loren. Think about it.


  15. ahmm, Mr. H ano nga ba meaning ng ABSURD? lol

    ok na sana ang kasalan. pero napakaobvious ni Mar na pulitika pa rin ang nasa isip sa gitna ng trahedya este okasyon na ito. napanood ko sa tv yung shot na kinukuhanan sila ng picture ni Korina sa may pedicab, instead kay Korina umakbay o humawak, nakahawak si Mar sa pedicab…amf!!!
