SA LETRANG B: BONG GO!

Bong Go, whose claim to fame was to take selfies with his boss prior to being elected senator, was grilled by Senator Drilon on the Sports Commission’s budget.

Background: Last week, the Senate deliberated on the proposed 2020 budget of the Philippine Sports Commission. Sports committee head Bong Go defended the budget of the PSC. It was revealed that at least P9.5-B was spent for the construction of new sports facilities for this year’s Southeast Asian Games. When Sen. Franklin Drilon inquired about what the gov’t. plans to do with the sports facilities after the SEA Games, Go failed to give a substantive answer. (You all know what happened next!)

Here’s the text version:

Cringe-worthy videos of Bong Go being interpellated by Sen. Franklin Drilon on the budget of the Philippine Sports Commission have gone viral. If you want to see the videos, just go to YouTube and search for “grilled sapsap.“

Bong Go, whose claim to fame was to take selfies with his boss prior to being elected senator, was grilled by Senator Drilon on the PSC’s budget. He couldn’t give a satisfying answer to Drilon’s valid questions prompting someone from the gallery to shout, “Sunog! Saklolo! May nasusunog!”

Rumors say Bong Go’s Ka-DDS supporters are filing a case against Senator Drilon. They want him charged with arson.

Just so you know, Bong Go is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Games, Amusements and Sports. So far, based on his recent Senate grilling, he’s been successful on the “amusements” part.

After the hearing, Bong Go tried to take a selfie with his companions but he couldn’t. Insiders say, “Wala na siyang mukhang maiharap sa camera.”

BREAKING:

Bong Go has officially tapped Ateneo’s Tab Baldwin and UST’s Aldin Ayo for future Senate hearings. He desperately needs great coaches.

THE BARRETTO SERYE AND OTHER STORIES

Atong Ang also confirmed the authenticity of a viral photo of him holding hands with Gretchen Barretto while sleeping on a plane.

To those who asked, here’s the text version:

BREAKING: TIME Magazine has officially announced its first ever choice for Domestic Partner of the Year. The vote was unanimous. Congratulations to Filipino businessman Tonyboy Cojuangco.

Businessman Charlie ‘Atong’ Ang confirmed President Duterte tried to reconcile feuding sisters, Gretchen and Marjorie Barretto. He failed. Duterte vows to give it a second try and if he doesn’t succeed, he will resign.

Amid reports linking him to at least three Barretto women, Atong Ang claims he’s a “happily married man.” Imagine what would happen if he’s no longer happy with his marriage.

Atong Ang also confirmed the authenticity of a viral photo of him holding hands with Gretchen Barretto while sleeping during a flight overseas. Here’s a lesser-known fact: Atong Ang’s wife and Tonyboy Cojuangco both hated the 2006 movie, “Snakes on A Plane.”

Just a couple of days after its 18-minute exclusive interview with actress Marjorie Barretto, TV Patrol had another exclusive: a 13-minute interview with businessman Charlie ‘Atong Ang’ who has been romantically-linked to three Barretto women. Those interviews have fueled speculations TV Patrol is changing its title to The Buzz (TB) Patrol.

Marjorie Barretto has finally admitted she fell in love, and had an affair with former Caloocan City Mayor RECOM ECHIVERRI – giving so much hope to so many men out there.

Marjorie Barretto said her father died of

acute respiratory failure. But Gretchen Barretto insisted he died of heart attack. Watching them though, it’s possible the old man died of disappointment.

In other news…

After cutting short his recent Japan visit due to “unbearable pain,” President Duterte went to see a neurologist to have his spinal column checked. But things got really awkward when the neurologist started talking about Duterte’s policy on China and then told him, “Mr. President, I have nothing to check since you don’t have spine.”

President Duterte went to see a neurologist to have his spinal column checked. Malacaٌang says he needs to stay healthy to continue serving the country. He’ll do an even greater service to Filipinos if would have his brain examined too.

President Duterte has a new chief justice in the Supreme Court. He appointed Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta of Ilocos Norte to the post replacing Lucas Bersamin. Shortly after the appointment was announced, the Marcoses threw a victory party.

With Peralta as Chief Justice, Duterte spokesman Salvador Panelo expects the judiciary to uphold the principles of “integrity” and “independence.”

Of course, that was just another classic Panelo joke.

The Philippine Star reported that processed meat products of Mekeni Food Corporation such as hotdogs, longganisa and tocino tested positive for African swine fever or ASF. Health officials say ASF is not a risk on human health. But it definitely poses a risk on Mekeni’s business.

Health experts have previously issued a statement saying African swine fever only affects members of the pig family. That probably explains why congressmen are so worried.

New Zealand-based Filipino marine geophysicist, Jenny Anne Barretto and two others have reportedly discovered the existence of what could possibly be the largest caldera in the word. A caldera is a large crater formed when a volcano erupts and collapses. No, this post is not about President Duterte.

With a diameter of 150 kilometers, the Apolaki Caldera, which was discovered within the Benham Rise, is larger than America’s Yellowstone. What a discovery! What an achievement! To know that a Barretto was part of the team that discovered the caldera is an even bigger achievement.

THE FLY AND THE PRESIDENT

Duterte tried to swat the fly away and even threatened to slap it with a piece of paper.

“Kagaya nitong langaw na ito. Kanina pa ‘yan sunod nang sunod sa akin. Naligo naman ako, mga buang.” ~President Duterte, 7.30.2019

LIST OF CHINESE SEA CREATURES

Beijing has declared these sea creatures as “Chinese.”

DUTERTE ON WEST PHILIPPINE SEA INCIDENT: “GAGANTI TAYO!” (EXCLUSIVE)

“Matapos banggain ng barko ng China, inabandona pa. Putang ina! Totally unacceptable.”

A CHINESE vessel reportedly rammed and sank a Philippine fishing boat anchored near Recto Bank in the West Philippine Sea on Sunday, June 9.

The military said the Chinese ship left 22 Filipino fishermen “to the mercy of the elements” until a Vietnamese vessel rescued them.

On Friday, President Duterte finally spoke about the issue. Here’s what he said:

“Si Secretary Lorenzana ang nagbalita sa akin tungkol sa nangyari sa South China Sea noong Miyerkules, June 12.

Nagalit ako. Grabe ang galit ko. Kasi nga ang aga-agang tumawag n’yang si Lorenzana para magsumbong eh tulog pa ako no’n! Holiday ‘yon, walang pasok, ‘tapos alas-nuwebe pa lang ng umaga tumatawag na. Pisting yawa.

Secondly, malaking barko pala ng China ang bumangga at sumira sa bangka ng Filipino fishermen. ‘Tapos inabandona pa. Putang ina! Totally unacceptable. Hinding-hindi ko matatanggap na doon pa rin nangingisda ang mga kababayan natin kahit alam nilang may nagpapatrol na barko ng China! Mga bobo!

And lastly, ipinapangako ko: gaganti tayo! Gaganti tayo sa kabutihan ng mga Vietnamese. ‘Pag bangka nila ang pinalubog ng barko ng China, tayo naman ang tutulong sa kanila!

If you have other questions, tanungin n’yo si Lorenzana o si Panelo. That’s all. Thank you.”

“What is obvious is that Goliath, the neighborhood bully, will continue to rear its ugly head to intimidate our poor fishermen. We need to find a way to hold China’s leadership accountable.”
