My letter to Junior Inquirer and GMA7


see letter here:

February 21, 2009

That was my letter to Junior Inquirer and GMA7 when I was still 12 years old. At such a young age, I already knew that I was gay. LOLZ!

I was kinda hooked into reading pocketbooks during that time: Sweet Valley, Goosebumps, and many others. But it's Sweet Valley and Goosebumps that I really loved the most. Sweet Valley in particular because I kinda had this small crush with Todd Wilkins, a fictional character in book. Geesh! Haha!

A few months after I wrote that letter to them, GMA 7 bought the rights of Sweet Valley which was, during that time, being shown in the US. They played a few seasons of the show. It was shown every Sunday morning, around 10:30AM. But what I kinda didn't like about what they did with the show was that they had it dubbed in Filipino. Well, I have nothing against my national language, ok. I love it. It's just that...they could've at least preserved the show. As is.

But, nevertheless, it was quite an experience. I've loved GMA 7 since then. I'm not a Kapuso, though. Neither am I a Kapamilya. I think these 2 networks are really undisputed "pillars" of the local entertainment industry and it's just such a waste to support only one of them.

I miss Sweet Valley. There are still Sweet Valley books around, new edition. But they're pretty expensive. Around P300.00 I think. Before, I only bought my Sweet Valley books for about P70.00-P89.00. There are also Goosebumps books in Powebooks but they're also quite expensive. I guess it has something to do with inflation.

Anyway, my point here is that...ever since I was young, I've always loved reading books. So...children...do read as many books as you can while you're still young. I read Sweet Valley when I was crossing the bridge from being a child to a teenager. And look at what happened to me. Look at what I've become.

GAY! LOLZ! Just kidding.

Mga parausang lumang sinehan

NAG DESISYON na ang Korte Suprema na labag sa Konstitusyon ang ordinansa na nagbabawal ng short time sa mga motel sa siyudad ng Maynila.

Wala na ring balak pa umanong maghain ng apela si mayor Alfredo Lim sa naturang desisyon.

Nagbabala naman si Lim na handa niyang ipasara ang anumang motel sa lungsod ng Maynila sakaling may makita sila na pinapayagan na magpapasok ng mga estudyante para magshort time.
Pero, teka, ito talaga ang pakay ko, ang mga lumang sinehan sa Metro Manila.

Taong 2005, balak ko na itong iparating sa dati kong boss na Kongresista, ang patuloy na pamamayagpag ng mga lumang sinehan sa Maynila. Subalit, may tila tinik sa aking lalamunan na nakabara. Tila, wala akong boses sa tuwing ako ay maghahanda sa aking mga sasabihin. Tila, nakagapos ang aking mga kamay para isulat ang mga hakbang na dapat kong irekomenda para masulosyunan na ito.

Alam ko, ikaw ay pamilyar ukol sa mga lumang sinehan sa buong Kamaynilaan.

Sa unang pasok ko sa ganitong sinehan, ako ay tuwang tuwa. Napan…

PILIPINAS, TUNAY NGA BANG MALAYA NA?

NGAYON ANG IKA 111st NA ANIBERSARYO NG ARAW NG KALAYAAN NG PILIPINAS. Ngunit, sa paglipas ng isang daan at labing isang taon, tunay nga ba tayong malaya na?

May mga pagkakataong gusto kong isipin na hindi na tayo nakagapos sa mga bansang banyaga dahil nagkaroon na tayo ng kalayaan sa pamamalakad ng gobyerno. Ngunit, ano ang kalagayan ng mga Pilipino ngayon? Mayroon na nga ba siyang dangal na matatawag? Taas noo na nga ba ang bawat Pilipino kahit kanino?

Sa mga nakalipas na araw, samu’t saring problema ang dinaranas ng ating bansa. Mga problemang lalong nagpapalugmok ng bawat mamamayan. Mga problemang animo’y walang katapusan. Paano babangon ang isang Juan dela Cruz kung mismong mga namumuno sa ating bayan ang nagbabangayan? Paano tayo makakalaya kong mismong mga halal ng bayan ang siyang nanguna upang itali ang bawat mahihirap na pinoy sa kanilang pamamahala?Paano na ang walang tigil na pagbulusok ng presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin? Ang walang humpay na pagtaas ng gasolina. Paano pa m…
