ROBERT BLAIR CARABUENA, an HR manager at Philip Morris International was caught by a TV5 crew manhandling an MMDA traffic enforcer Tuesday. A check on Carabuena’s Facebook account revealed he’s an Ateneo alumnus whose role models include Claudine Barretto, Chris Brown, and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

Robert Blair Carabuena who mauled a hapless traffic enforcer graduated from Ateneo De Manila University. The MMDA is filing charges against him. Now that’s One Big Fight!

According to his LinkedIn profile, Robert Blair Carabuena graduated at ADMU with a degree in psychology. Based on that video, he puts the psycho in psychology.

Heard about that guy Robert Blair Carabuena? He was caught throwing his overweight around!

When the video of him mauling a traffic enforcer went viral, Robert Blair Carabuena, who’s also on Twitter decided to protect his tweets by making changes in the settings. No word yet on whether or not there will be changes in his behavior.

The motorist who manhandled an MMDA traffic enforcer has deleted/deactivated his Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. Karma is digital.

Robert Blair Carabuena has taken down his accounts in social networking sites. He bullies traffic enforcers but he’s no match for computers.

Employees of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System reveal MWSS consultants earn P8,500 per meeting which translates roughly to P34,000 a day or about P136,000 a month! Wow, where and how do I send my resumé?

No Perks
Employees of PAGASA held a protest action to denounce the failure of the government to implement a law that entitles them to a hazard pay of no more than P6,000 per month. Today, the take home pay of a weather forecaster like Jori Loiz is P12,000 – or as MWSS consultants would say, “Pang-gas.”

In Other News…
The Judicial and Bar Council has released the short list of eight candidates for the post of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. President Aquino has until August 27 to entertain lobbyists announce his choice.

Justice Secretary Leila De Lima was disqualified by the JBC. In totally unrelated news, Sen. Panfilo Lacson is throwing a party.

The JBC has announced the shortlisted candidates for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. President Aquino plans to bring the candidates to flooded areas in the metro to distribute relief goods.

Sotto’s Speech
I have yet to read/watch Sen. Tito Sotto’s eulogy last Monday so I cannot comment on that yet.

But I heard poledancer Ciara Sotto was quoted to have said that of all places, she didn’t expect she’d shed tears at the Senate. Kami rin.

The London Olympics
It’s another medal-less campaign in the Summer Olympics for Team Philippines. One sports official who was with the PH delegation in London said we should reform and overhaul the country’s sports program. And I was like, “You first.”

The fastest man in the world is still Usain Bolt of Jamaica.
Dear Usain Bolt,
Be our justice system, please.
Thank you.

Miss Universe 2012
Reports say the Miss Universe pageant scheduled this December is in danger of getting canceled. Apparently, the other planets still refuse to send representatives.

In Hollywood…
Jennifer Aniston is getting married. The 43-year-old actress is engaged to her future ex-husband.

Quote of the Week
“Obvious naman, the Supreme Court, the IBP, the JBC, nagkasundo sila lahat trying to pin me down and bonding together as if nagkaroon sila ngayon ng common objective: anybody but De Lima. That’s my feeling. Hindi ko talaga ‘yun naintindihan and why was I singled out for disqualification?”
~Justice Sec. Leila De Lima

Stay safe! Typhoon Helen’s still here.

Victory for Pacquiao

Filipino boxing great Manny Pacquiao won against WBC super-featherweight champ Juan Manuel Marquez, successfully stealing the world title from the Mexican pugilist. First Gentleman Mike Arroyo, Cong. Jose De Venecia, and other Filipino politicians who intently watched the fight, were able to relate with Manny. I mean, not to his winning but – to the “stealing.”

First Gentleman Mike Arroyo, recently tagged as a member of the “Greedy Group,” personally called Manny Pacquiao after the latter’s triumph against Marquez. Rumors say Mr. Arroyo and Pacquiao talked about “the cut.” As of press time though, it couldn’t be determined if the “cut” being referred to was Manny’s wound or “something else.”

In a post fight interview, veteran sports columnist and boxing analyst Recah Trinidad said, “Objectively, Marquez should have won that fight by one point.” It wouldn’t surprise me if the Senate files a resolution calling for a probe.

Manny Pacquiao earned a hard-fought victory against Mexican champion Juan Manuel Marquez sending the whole nation into a frenzy. Rodolfo “Jun” Lozada’s 15 minutes of fame could soon be over.

null Manny Pacquiao won against Juan Manuel Marquez. After winning the title, he was interviewed on live television by an American sports anchor. And believe me, this high school graduate spoke English way better than the Bb. Pilipinas-World titlist who’s a masscom major.

Briefly Noted


Almost two hours after Manny Pacquiao won over Juan Manuel Marquez, GMA 7 started its exclusive delayed coverage of the fight. So delayed was the telecast that even before the winner was declared, Marquez has already landed in his hometown in Mexico.

GMA 7 took advantage of its exclusive coverage rights and inserted advertisements in every opportunity. In the singing of the Philippine, Mexican, and the US national anthems alone, the Kapuso network inserted three long gaps for its sponsors – somehow forcing Filipino viewers to set a Guinness record of sorts for the highest number of profanity uttered while watching a single TV special. (“Put*ng ina, patalastas na naman!” “Hayup naman ‘tong channel na to, tambak ang commercials!” “F*ck! Another commercial gap!?” “Sh*t patalastas ulit!” The list is endless.)

GMA 7’s coverage of “Unfinished Business” – the Pacquiao vs. Marquez fight, attracted quite a number of advertisers. In fact, so great was the number of ads that GMA 7’s coverage of the next Pacquiao fight will be dubbed “Unfinished Commercials.”

null Starlet Ciara Sotto, daughter of a former Philippine senator, sang the Philippine National Anthem before the Pacquiao-Marquez fight. Wala lang.

Jinggoy Estrada denied that he left the country to watch Manny Pacquiao’s fight in Las Vegas as erroneously reported by the Philippine Daily Inquirer in its banner story Saturday. Estrada said, “This is another case of malicious news reporting, without checking the facts or even getting the reaction of the concerned individual.” But don’t be too hard on the Inquirer. It’s just being consistent.

Good News: Dahil sa panalo, Pacquiao may pangakong balato sa mga Pilipino
Bad News: Pangakong balato… isang pelikulang bago! (Parang awa mo na, magboksing ka na lang!)


A son of Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim has been arrested in a drug buy-bust operation in Sta. Cruz, Manila Friday night. Apparently, because Lim was so busy spraying other suspected drug dealers’ houses with “Pusher ang nakatira dito,” he didn’t notice that a similar activity was going on in his own home.

Have a great week ahead!
