A FRIEND who recently graduated from college dreams of owning a Porsche in three years. I told him he could have it in two if he’d apply for a clerical job at the Bureau of Customs.
Did you hear about the Bureau of Customs clerk who drives a Porsche? The guy is earning no more than 10,000 pesos a month! That isn’t fair. You don’t get to own properties beyond your means. Unless you’re the Chief Justice.
You know what’s unfair? Paulino Elevado, a Bureau of Customs clerk who earns no more than P10,000 a month is driving a white Porsche. That news broke last week. Today, rumors say the Porsche-driving clerk is even dating a hot Korean chick.
Customs Commissioner Ruffy Biazon says Paulino Elevado’s statement of assets, liabilities and net worth or SALN “is clean.” It means, he doesn’t have the capacity to buy a multimillion peso vehicle. Elevado explained though he was given a 40 percent discount because the car had leaks when he acquired it.
Malacañang admonished political adviser Ronald Llamas in connection with his purchase of pirated DVDs recently. Likewise, he was strongly advised to avoid Circle C Mall, Quiapo, Metrowalk, Makati Cinema Square, and Dona Policar of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
Malacañang has officially admonished Secretary Ronald Llamas. But the controversial political adviser isn’t totally off the hook yet. DVD vendors at the Circle C Mall are filing an ‘endangerment’ suit against him.
This just in: A recent unscientific survey showed that 85 percent of Filipinos wanted Llamas fired while 15 percent wanted him disciplined. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus AK-47.
Donaire Jr. Wins
Nonito “The Filipino” Flash Donaire Jr. scored a split decision victory over Wilfredo Vazquez of Puerto Rico to win the WBO junior featherweight title. Nonito has never lost a bout since April 2001… except for that nasty fight against his father.
You know who else is talking about a ‘split decision?’ Aleli Arroyo and Lorna Kapunan.
Two women are now fighting over Cong. Iggy Arroyo’s remains: Aleli Arroyo, the legal wife, and Grace Ibuna, the live-in partner. Guess who’s going to win it big. Lorna Kapunan.
Last February 4, Facebook turned 8. Or as former Congressman Romeo Jalosjos would say, “Interesting!”
Facebook, the most popular social networking site in the world is now 8 years old. If Facebook were Chinese, he’d already be working in a factory.
Facebook turned 8 years old last February 4. Unfortunately for Facebook, it’s still too young to join Facebook.
To date, Facebook has 845 million users. Wow! And Facebook isn’t even 18 yet!

Quote of the Day
“Whatever we talk about — whether politics, economics, books or music — he’s so knowledgeable. He knows a lot. Whenever some critics say bad things about him, that he’s not aggressive or that he’s not matalino, I’d debate them and tell them he’s very smart.”
~Grace Lee on President Aquino
