Last Sunday, Vice President Binay was reportedly booed after he was introduced by suspended Mayor Michael Rama at the formal opening of the Sinulog Grand Parade in Cebu City. Binay almost stole the show.
In September 2015, Vice President Binay met with Nationalist People’s Coalition leaders and presented his plans for his first 100 days. Last Monday, it was the turn of presidential aspirant Rodrigo Duterte to talk about his platform. He met with NPC leaders and detailed his plans for the first 100 bodies.
Guia for Mar
San Juan City Mayor Guia Gomez, partner of former president and Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada has endorsed the presidential bid of Mar Roxas. The five other presidential candidates are not worried though. They can still rely on the support of Estrada’s five other partners.
Accused plunderer Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile, who is out on bail, can’t wait for the reopening of the Mamasapano massacre probe. Loyal admin supporters believe Enrile wants President Aquino charged and jailed for his “direct involvement” in the botched operation. Well, it can happen. But not in Enrile’s lifetime.
Sen. Tito Sotto’s daughter Ciara and her husband of six years Jojo Oconer have reportedly separated. Sotto will not comment on the issue until he has talked to the couple, or at least until he figures out a way to blame this on the RH Law.

For the second year in a row, the Academy has exclusively nominated white actors for the show’s top honors. People of color are upset. In protest, some famous celebrities have decided to skip this year’s Oscar Awards including director Spike Lee, Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett-Smith and Vice President Binay.

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will be visible in the night sky in a rare astronomical alignment starting Friday. Astronomers have advised Anne Curtis and Billy Crawford to temporarily refrain from drinking alcohol, and Claudine Barretto to stay away from airports.

Enrile wants to “hurt” the President “because PNoy put him in a stockade.”

Sylvia Estrada Claudio: Magnanakaw sa Senado
“Ang problema ay ubod ng yabang nitong si Senator Sotto. Hindi niya matanggap na tinalo siya ng mga maralita at mga kababaihan. Hindi matanggap ang demokratikong pasya ng karamihan. Kaya’t nagmistulang akyat-bahay gang ang senador. Tulad ng magnanakaw, hinintay niyang natutulog tayo matapos ng mga kasiyahan ng Pasko at Bagong Taon. At habang tayo ay mahimbing na natutulog, ninakaw niya P1 bilyong pinag-ipunan natin.”
Editorial: Hell to pay
“Blame instead a leadership and council that could have headed off this crisis but that, by some unfathomable complacency, incompetence, negligence to their principals, or all of the above, set everyone up for a sucker punch instead. Even when they’re in the right, they set themselves up for a spectacular fall.”
Love will keep us alive. – Eagles / #RIPGlenFrey
