DIPLOMACY


Noy and the US Envoy
US Ambassador Harry K. Thomas Jr. paid a visit to president-apparent Noynoy Aquino on Times Street, Quezon City last Friday. After the visit, both the Liberal Party and the US Embassy denied rumors that Thomas made a pitch for Jejomar Binay.

The meeting between US Ambassador Harry K. Thomas Jr. and president-apparent Noynoy Aquino last Friday reportedly lasted one and a half hours. A broad range of issues was discussed during the visit. Thomas talked about current state relations and terrorism for the first half hour, while Noynoy talked about video games for the next hour.


US Ambassador Harry K. Thomas Jr. paid a courtesy call on president apparent-Noynoy Aquino last Friday on Times Street. Thomas promised three things during his visit: one, that the US would respect the outcome of the elections; two, that America would work closely with Aquino on priority issues, and three, that he, as US envoy would never appear on Wowowee as often as his predecessor did.

Sen. Mar Roxas was also present during US Ambassador Harry K. Thomas Jr’s visit to Times Street. Roxas took advantage of the opportunity to meet Thomas before he takes a one-year break from government and politics.

GMA’s “Tuko”
Heard about President Arroyo’s speech at the Lions Club convention last Friday? In her talk, the president revealed, “In my son’s home, and in my home in Lubao, Pampanga, we don’t use chemical pest control for mosquitoes and cockroaches. We use a gecko.” Now that explains why Malacañang has been free from cockroaches and mosquitoes for nine years now.

With the likes of Dato, Mikey, Iggy, and Mike Arroyo around her, it’s no longer surprising why President Arroyo knows so much about pest management.

DOH and Smoking
The Department of Health will issue an administrative order requiring cigarette manufacturers to place graphic warnings in their products to discourage the public from smoking. Reacting to the order, cigar manufacturers have started reproducing cigar packages showing a photo of Noynoy Aquino.

Kris and TIME
Noynoy and the Aquino family are on the pages of TIME Asia again. His sister Kris was described as “The Filipina Oprah.” Sure. A black host and a black sheep.

Kris Files LOA
Kris Aquino has announced her decision to leave ABS-CBN’s two showbiz-oriented talk shows: ‘The Buzz’ and ‘SNN’ while her brother is in office. To sustain the two shows’ good ratings while she’s gone, Kris will be replaced by Robin Padilla.

A Passport, Finally!
Dethroned Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2010 Maria Venus Raj finally gets a passport – a condition set by the Bb. Pilipinas Charities before she is completely reinstated. It took more than a month for Venus to get a passport because she was too busy with her TV guestings and appearances.


Overseas
On Saturday, May 22, 13-year-old Jordan Romero of California, USA became the youngest climber to reach the peak of Mount Everest. The lovable kid has become so popular on Twitter, fans of Justin Bieber have started sending him hate mails.

Sunday: “China, Spain hail Aquino’s poll victory”
Is PDI the new Manila Bulletin?

  2. I concede na hindi ako ang nanalo sa paunahan sa pag comment sa blog na ito. I congratulate chiwee for winning it. The blog has spoken or, rather, noted the time of the first one to comment here. There is no need for me to protest the result of the contest. I fought a good fight but this not my time to be first. I thank my wife for patiently waiting for me at night and for forgiving me when our nightly rituals are postponed, and most often, cancelled because of my campaign to be first to comment. I guess I will just go back to being just a simple citizen of this land, enjoy my family, and wait for the next post.

  3. mr ph, i just want to get ur attention on this. no need to approve my comment here.

    about tonight’s episode of pilipinas got talent.(i hope someone will post the episode on youtube).

    the judge, kris aquino, noted contestant named fame of singing “songs that the audience could relate” kuno. she sang a song for opera or theater vs. the guy who sang tagalog. kris said mas nakakarelate sya at ang audience daw kuno coz she should be singing latest songs daw. btw, this girl got more text votes than the other contestant.

    you should hear that girl’s answer to kris’ comments. i think this will be another slap on kris.

    1. Aside from Mr. Garcia, the other judges in PGT do not know what they’re talking about.

      To begin with, their criteria of judging is very nebulous and changes depending on their mood for the night.

      Last night, when given the chance to perform for a slot in the grand finals, the boy faltered big time but he still got in because supposedly the crowd can’t relate to the girl’s (although not splendid but certainly) better performance.

      The judges of Showtime seem to know more about judging. And that’s not even saying much.

    2. yup, napanood ko yan habang hinahanap ko ung disney channel, binago kasi nung nasa cable ung arrangement, kala ko more on expertise ang talent show, yun pala para sa mga judge more on the ‘in’ thing, mas maganda talaga ang talentadong pinoy, ganyan po talaga pag napupuno ng smugness ang isang tao, pagpasensyahan na lang po natin hehehe ^^

  4. I didn’t know may silbi ang gecko – pest management? We all grew up scared of it – baka kumapit kasi, sabi ng matatanda.

    Re the performer in PGT who was criticized by one judge for not singing something the people could relate to, the Philippines’ exposure to and education in the sublime was markedly down after Imelda was no longer involved in the cultural scene. Connect the dots.

  5. Noynoy bloopers:

    1. “In an interview with reporters at his Times Street residence, Aquino said: “I’m confident that the executive has enough powers. There is a law which states that the power of the executive could not be clipped by another branch of government
    because all three branches are co-equal.”

    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/breakingnews/nation/view/20100521-271327/Aquino-says-he-will-have-adequate-control-of-govt-funds

    YES AND THAT LAW, MR PRESIDENT, IS THE CONSTITUTION.

    2. Appointing CJ Puno as DOJ secretary.

    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/inquirerheadlines/nation/view/20100523-271560/Ex-CJ-Puno-says-no-to-Aquinos-DOJ-offer

    MR PRESIDENT, CJ PUNO WAS THE HEAD OF A CO-EQUAL BODY, E.G., THE JUDICIARY. NOW YOU WANT HIM TO WORK UNDER YOU?

    3. Telling the whole world Mar Roxas lost without realizing he actually said it. Then in a classic Noynoy move, binawi.

    The camp of vice presidential front-runner Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay was mighty pleased with presumptive president-elect Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III’s slip of the tongue on Thursday when he said people might have to wait a year to know what’s in store in government for his running mate Sen. Mar Roxas.

    Aquino, after making the slip, corrected himself and said that whether Roxas wins or not, they will work together in the next six years.

  7. Good observation PH I also agree with you that the PDI is already turning like a Manila Bulletin. I still remember during the the protest rally as a result of the death of Senator NINOY Aquino that PDI is always on the forefront of giving the reading public a good news and a fearless views which later on forces Marcos to declare a snap election,

    But now the PDi is becoming neutral with the apparent president elect because the PDi does not want to suffer the same fate they suffered under the Estrada administration when most of the their advertisers were advised and ordered not to advertise with PDI. They lost a lot of money in advertising.

    Well I believed PDi has really learned a good lesson that in business you must always satisfy your customers/readers in their case and always go along with the powers that be in order to stay in business and earned good income. Go Go Go PH.
