Gigi Reyes Video: This is How the Rich and Powerful Party in the Philippines

This is the Gigi Reyes' 50th Birthday Video and most of the Philippine Senate likes to party and get down to the Black Eyed Peas regardless of rayuma.

So who is Gigi Reyes? She's one powerful lady and the chief of staff of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile. Party on Politicos at the nation's expense!

Happy Birthday Tita Cory!

Today is former President Corazon Aquino's 80th Birthday. Though we all know she's dead, we celebrate her birthday anyways.

Corazon C. Aquino was born in Paniqui, Tarlac. She was the 11th President of the Philippines and the first woman to hold the office. She came into power after the bloodless EDSA revolution of 1986, which restored democracy in the country. As Commander-in-Chief, she defended this democracy, withstanding several coup attempts through her term, which lasted from February 25, 1986 to June 30, 1992.

Cesar Montano has a new alleged mistress named Krista Miller according to his wifey Sunshine Cruz and her 'anak ng Pasig' cousin Geneva Cruz. Thank you to for breaking the news!

Since Filipinas love the age old tradition of publicly attacking and verbally abusing the mistress at the mall, MRT, palengke, etc. Its just a matter of time celebs get into a flaming Twitter war with their hub's latest hot fling.

Juicy Bits of the Cesar Montano-Krista Miller Scandal:

Cesar Montano is a having an affair with a nobody by the name of Krista Miller according Geneva Cruz via Twitter.

The affair was found out confirmed through the kids of Sunshine Cruz because Krista Miller was always hovering around Cesar Montano

Sunshine Cruz demands that Krista Miller return the brand new iPhone 5 given by Cesar Montano

Sunshine Cruz also uploaded pics of Krista Miller on her Instagram account.

Krista Miller VS. Geneva Cruz

Winner sa hirit si Geneva Cruz:

"You are so insensitive. What are you a non-living thing? Purchase your own husband! Get off my cousin's. It's never too late to change."
Grade 1 Science bah ang labanan? Malamang si Krista ay hindi lang kabit o non living thing kung di solid, liquid o gas? LOL

So ano sagot ni Krista Miller -"But he was the 1 that chased me!"
Chos! Palaban! Parang si Krista Ranillo ka lang 'teh!

Cesar Montano likes to recycle gifts. He gave Krista Miller an Abercombie and Fitch men's shirt which was gift from Sunshine Cruz, a box of chocolate from Sunshine's sister and Sunshine's iPhone 5. Uber kuripot loloh mo!

ABSCBN Talent Krista Miller whose real name Kristalyn Engle was part of Cesar Montano's last movie . 

MMDA: Deceiving Road Signs on EDSA Santolan UTurn Slot

Taken from the FB page of Mr. Bel Sayson. Public Service lang po, drivers need to know about this and also FYI MMDA is doing something about already. Thank God for Social Media:

On your way to Greenhills/La Salle via northbound EDSA? If you plan to take the U-turn under B. Serrano Avenue (near Camp Crame), be careful. As you can see in the photos, the EDSA road signs leading to the U-turn say that ALL private vehicles are ALLOWED to take the U-turn that will take them to southbound EDSA leading to Greenhills and La Salle. 

But the truth is this is only allowed from 5:00PM to 6:00AM only. See the big blank green paint under “U Turn Allowed”? They painted the sign “Only from 5:00PM to 6:00AM” using a similar shade of GREEN color too to confuse the motorists! By the time you enter the lane, it’s too late and that’s the only time you can visibly read the allowed time period. By then, MMDA personnel are just waiting for you under the bridge to flag you down.

This has been going on for months with private vehicles as victims. The simple solution is just to replace the signs.

But MMDA has taken action via Twitter regarding the EDSA signage:

From MMDA Facebook page: Regarding the post going around about confusing signage at EDSA Santolan Uturn slot and MMDA enforcers allegedly preying on motorists in that area, the matter has been forwarded to both EDSA enforcement heads and to Traffic Engineering Center. The signages will be modified to relay a clearer message. 

Now at any time of the day you can make a u-turn goin' south bound.

January 26, 2013 is Early Registration Day for Philippine Public Schools for the Year 2013-2014

Consider it the Department of Education's iwas siksikan sa enrollment initiative, the nationwide early registration on January 26 of students in all public elementary and secondary schools is a good move to accomodate and get a head count of all school-aged children.

Philippine DepEd's Secretary Armin Luistro said “We want to make the June school opening as smooth as possible and as universally participated in as possible, that is why we are doing the preparation as early as January.”

The early registration aims to ensure five-year olds' enrolment in kindergarten and six-year-olds' registration for Grade 1 and to get the out-of-school children and youths from disadvantaged groups, including street children aged 5 to 18 off the streets.

Police Checkpoints in the Philippines

An advisory on Police Checkpoints in the Philippines by GMA News TV As the May elections draw near and with the Comelec gun ban now in place, more checkpoints will be installed around the country, creating numerous interactions between police and citizens. The carnage in Atimonan at a dubious checkpoint does not inspire confidence that all police checkpoints are set up to protect the public.

This infographic describes what a PNP checkpoint should look like.


1. Maliwanag dapat ang checkpoint at naka-uniporme ang nagbabantay na personnel.
2. Kapag pinalapit sa checkpoint, bagalan ang takbo ng sasakyan, patayin ang headlights at buksan ang cabin lights. Huwag lumabas ng sasakyan.
3. I-lock ang mga pinto. Visual search lang ang pwedeng gawin ng mga pulis.
4. Huwag pumayag sa body search.
5. Hindi ka obligadong buksan ang iyong glove compartment, trunk o bag.
6. Kung magtatanong ng routine questions ang mga pulis, sumagot nang magalang.
7. Panindigan ang iyong mga karapatan at huwag mag-panic.
8. Tiyaking madali mong makukuha ang iyong driver's license at mga papeles sa car registration.
9. Laging ihanda ang cellphone.
10. I-report agad kung nilabag ang iyong mga karapatan.
