GMA’s New House?
Malacañang refused to comment on reports that President Arroyo is the owner of a newly-constructed 400-square-meter single-story house in Lubao, Pampanga. But Pampanga Rep. Mikey Arroyo said the media should stop speculating because the house was just a gift from his parents’ wedding sponsors.
Vice President Arroyo?
Quezon Rep. Danilo Suarez, a staunch administration ally, suggested that President Arroyo run for vice president in May 2010… to which Pampanga Rep. Mikey Arroyo said, “Bobo ka ba? Eh ‘di nasayang naman ‘yung bahay sa Lubao.”
ABS-CBN’s Corp Com Head
In a phone interview, ABS-CBN Corporate Communications head Bong Osorio dismissed speculations that ABS-CBN was favoring presidential aspirant Noynoy Aquino. Nope, Osorio is not insulting our intelligence. He is assuming that we don’t have any.

The latest Social Weather Stations survey showed that 53 percent of Filipino families consider themselves poor. The response of the remaining 47 percent was invalidated because they answered “Noynoy Aquino.”
A recent study conducted by the London-based Legatum Institute in tandem with Gallup World Poll showed that 85 percent of Filipinos expressed satisfaction with the freedoms afforded to them in their daily lives. Sen. Chiz Escudero was not among the 85 percent because the study was conducted months before he resigned from NPC.
Freedom Survey 2
According to a study conducted by the London-based Legatum Institute in partnership with Gallup World Poll, “Filipinos enjoy excellent freedom of movement, religion, and speech” – the same freedoms enjoyed most by Loren Legarda, Mike Velarde, and Chiz Escudero, respectively.
I saw the news last night. Apparently, it’s still flooded in many parts of Pangasinan. Plazas are flooded, churches are flooded, and big malls are flooded prompting San Nicolas, Pangasinan Mayor Leoncio Saldivar III to order his bodyguards to shop in Greenbelt 5.
The Mayor and the Heist
Reports say two of the members of the gang that robbed a Rolex store in Greenbelt 5 last month worked for San Nicolas, Pangasinan Mayor Leoncio Saldivar III. But Saldivar denied any involvement in the Greenbelt 5 incident mainly because he expected the group to rob Glorietta 4 instead.
The Mayor and the Heist II
Remember the Greenbelt 5 robbery last month? It turned out that one of the robbers was the first cousin of San Nicolas, Pangasinan Mayor Leoncio Saldivar III. Sought for comment, Saldivar said, “Eh ano naman ngayon kung pinsang-buo ko ‘yung magnanakaw? Si Mike Arroyo nga eh, asawa ng presidente.”
Alvin Flores, the leader of a robbery gang eponymously named after him, reportedly had his face changed through plastic surgery to evade police detection… something that was totally unnecessary if he were a congressman.
