Seth Stanley Gaviola Radam: Physical Therapist Goes on Shopping Spree on Stolen Credit Card

Viral on Facebook the credit card holder posted how his credit card was cloned:

My credit card was cloned and used to make purchases amounting to almost 50k at SM Bacoor today. Fortunately I was notified via text message so we immediately called the credit card company and the stores where the purchases were made. A few hours later the suspect was caught after the staff of Techno Kid and Nike coordinated with mall security. They say he has other cloned cards on hand and may have victimized other card holders.
 



Milo Chocolate Drink Philippines: Mom Opens Milo Tetra Pack and Finds Tiny Crusty Eggs




OMG!!! I already saw a post about this incident, but never ko naisip mae-experience din namin! My 7 y/o son just opened this Milo tetra pack (expiration date: 05DEC15) and paginom nya nagulat ako tumakbo nalang sya sa sink halos masuka!! He said "Mommy, expired na ata!". When I grabbed the pack from him I immediately check the expiration date, ok, di pa expired! Pero napansin ko mejo mabigat yung pack kaya ginupit ko para mabuksan. That THING is what we found at the bottom of the pack!! It smelled putrid!! If you look closely....parang may eggs na dikit dikit! I don't know and I don't have any idea kung ano to!! POINT is... NAINOM (nilunok pa) ng anak ko yan!! What is that?! I will call the grocery store where I bought the product to inform them about this horror para malaman nila na may ganitong product sa shelves nila!! Sana makarating to sa Nestle Philippines!! My God, what if yung 2 y/o ko nakainom nito?! Sa mga bibili...please be extra careful bago nyo ipainom sa mga anak ninyo. If something goes wrong with my son, I'll see you Milo sa head office nyo!
 
I think the nightmare here is that her son swallowed some of these nasty things whatever they are.

 

It looks like congealed starch or I really hope it is not insect eggs. It could just a really bad batch from the factory or the juice box was compromised in the supermarket shelves?







 



Hope Nestle gets this straightened out, everyone loves Milo dammit!  Sweldo na pa man din and grocery time bukas.


General Emilio Aguinaldo Memorial Hospital: ER Staff Ignores Old Patient Coughing Blood


Concerned citizen NeNet Leaban Gonzales couldn't stand it any longer, the old man in the ER was coughing out blood rather profusely. Patients around the old man were becoming uncomfortable as well, he had a mere ice cream bucket to catch all the blood with and on his left hand, a Fita Biscuit he would not let go of.



At the emergency room of the General Emilio Aguinaldo Memorial Hospital in Trece Martires Cavite, the queue for patients is often long and waiting in line becomes a game of hanging on for help. Miss NetNet felt the old man really needed help, but the staff was taking longer to get back to the old guy, so she took out her phone and started taking pictures, only then did the hospital staff came back to check on grandpa.


Nakakaawa si tatay kanina sa GEAMH, Trece Martires City, Cavite... Dumating siya sa ER Dept na may kasama daw na taga disaster... tapos pinaupo naman. at walang tigil yung pagdurugo ng bibig nya. binigyan ng OS para sa dugo pero di pa rin naampat. Napansin ko lang... sobrang tagal bago siya ulit mapansin ng mga tao don. at halos magkanda reklamo na ang nasa paligid ng ER. Kundi pa narinig na maawa naman kayo kay tatay at baka maubusan ng dugo kasi continues at tinutukan ko na nang camera saka lang isa isang lumapit. At saka nagtanong sa kanya. Nakaka awa kapag kita mo nakang emergency na pero para lang hangin. Alam kong toxic sila pero marami pa ring nurses ang di naman ganun ka busy that time at sa kalagayan nya, imposibleng magwawalang bahala ka lang. Di ko nilalahat pero mostly ay walang lumapit sa kanya. Huwag naman sana tayo ganyan lalo pa at Seniors. Yung pulis na nasa picture ay tumulong a kay tatay kasi pilit na natayo at kaya napansin dahil humingi siya ng tulong na mapansin si tatay.


Salamat Miss Nenet matapang ka at na yung malasakit mo para kay tatang ay nasa lugar. Sana naman okay na kalagayan niya.

How to Commute to Mercedes Avenue, Barangay San Miguel, Pasig City, Philippines

To get to  Barangay San Miguel, Pasig City, Philippines:

Take MRT to Shaw Blvd.

Then ride a Pasig Palengke-bound jeep, tell the driver you are alighting at the palengke area, then when the jeep reaches the palengke, ride another jeep, the Taytay/Cainta-bound jeep, tell the jeepney driver to drop you off at One Mercedes/Jollibee Mercedes/Rustan's. Once you reach this intersection, you are now at Mercedes Avenue, you can either walk or take a tricycle to any specific street of Barangay San Miguel.

UP Enrollment: The Enrollment System at the University of the Philippines

It seems the University of the Philippines' enrollment system is not up to standard at all. You think they'd be the University with the most efficient and organized system in the country. NOPE. Students have to camp out or sleep the night over, there's the classic long lines, missing names and missing grades. So 80s. Shame ganito pa rin ngayon.


"Nakakainis na talaga itong Computerized Registration System ng UP (CRS). Tinatanggal nyo ang names ng students kapag di bayad o kaya di makabayad ng loans. Tapos, pagnakabayad na, saka pupunta sa amin ang students at guguluhin ang natutulog naming mundo para hanapin ang kanilang grades. Wala pong kasalanan ang students. Di po kasalanan ang walang pambayad sa loans. Ang kasalanan ay yong tanggalin yong pangalan sa listahan kasi di bayad. Paglalako ito ng edukasyon. Bakit di nyo na lang bigyan ng grades hanggang makatapos at saka nyo singilin! Tatakbuhan ba kayo ng students? Ganun ba kababaw ang tingin natin sa kanila at edukasyon? Pahirap ito sa students at guro! Tandaan nyo: KUNG ANONG GINAWA NYONG PAGHAHATOL SA IBA, YAN DIN ANG PAGHAHATOL NA GAGAWIN SA INYO NG DYOS NG MGA WALANG PAMBAYAD SA LOANS. Tigilan na sana yang pagpapalakol sa mga names ng di makabayad. Ang UP ay di bahay-sanglaan".




So hindi na talaga para sa mahirap ang University of the Philippines:
Hindi ako sanay na puro nag-i-Ingles kahit sa isawan o bilihan ng shake. Madalang na sa klase ko na may estudyanteng mula sa public high school at mula sa pinakamalalayo't pinakamahihirap na baryo at bayan. Tiyak na pumasa naman sila sa UPCAT, talagang hindi lang abot ang taas ng gastusin sa UP.



Metro Manila Earthquake Drill

Musta Metro Manila Earthquake Drill today? #MMShakeDrill


Staying safe and getting prep for the 'Big Quake' is the order of the day.


Students get used to the sound of the fire alarms during the earthquake drill. So when the quake actually happens, hopefully everyone stays calm, no panicking and pushing, just exiting the building in an orderly manner.




There hasn't been a major earthquake in the Philippines in 25 years. And we all remember what happened in the last one.

Cinema Rehiyon 7: Cebu Film Festival

A total of seventeen full length films are set to grace Cebu cinemas from August 6-9, 2015 as part of the Cinema Rehiyon 7, the flagship project of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts’ (NCCA) National Committee on Cinema (NCC) headed by Director William Mayo.



Cinema Rehiyon 7 adopts the theme “At the Crossroads of the Seventh Art and showcases the best regional films from across the archipelago. Set in Cebu, CR7 would be highlighting the unique characteristics of Cebuano films.

“Cebu has a unique situation. A local industry sprung from the province around 1932 to 1975. Also, there is a resurgence of a new breed of Cebuano filmmakers,” shares NCC Vice-Head Teddy Co.




Cebuano actors from the 70’s and the 80’s including the Queen of Visayan Movies Gloria Sevilla, Pilar Pilapil, Suzette Ranillo, Julian Daan and Undo Juizan, the first ever Cebuano FAMAS Best Child Actor Awardee for the film “Salingsing sa Kasakit”, are expected to attend the festival as homage to Cebuano film culture.

True to its aim to highlight Cebuano local films, CR7 opens the festival with a classic Cebuano film by Leroy Salvador. First screened in 1968, Badlis sa Kinabuhi starred Sevilla and Mat Ranillo Jr.

To highlight Filipino resiliency, a set of regional films are dedicated to the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda. These films are T.M. Malones’ Dapya Sang Paglaum, Charena Escala and Rowena Sanches’ documentary Nick and Chai, and Thomas Fitzgerald’s Tigdao.

Films taking on various indigenous traditions are also included in the CR7 line up. Among them are Nef Luczon’s documentary on the Pan-ay Bukidnon community entitled Father said, “Let’s Return Home”, Lester del Valle’s Walang Rape sa Bontok, Adjani Arumpac’s War is A tender Thing and Ivy Universe Baldoza’s Marciano. One entry under this category, the Cordilleran tradition featured in Boyong and Sendong’s Busol:  The Last Headhunters, is a perfect example of native indigenous film, produced by and for the Cordilleran community.



Other films included in the line-up for CR7 are Remton Zuasola’s Soap Opera, which serves as the festival’s pre-opening film, Bagane Fiola’s Sonata Maria, Jason Paul Laxamana’s Magkakabaung, Lemuel Lorca’s Mauban: Ang Resiko, Charliebeb Gohetia’s Chasing the Waves, and Alec Figuracion’s Bitukang Manok, a product of an all Cebuano crew from the province’s IAFT film school.

Kidlat Tahimik’s Balikabayan #1: memories of Overdevelopment Redux III closes the fest. The film follows Enrique, a Visayan slave to Magellan and is said to be Tahimik’s tribute to the pre-Hispanic Cebuano who possibly is the first man to circumnavigate the world.

Aside from the full length line-up, there will also be screenings of contemporary Cebuano short films at the mini theater of Film and Media International Arts Academy (FMA), outreach screenings in select venues, outdoor screenings as well as a special viewing of National Artist Lamberto Avellana’s rarely seen creations.

This year’s CR7 festival also offers unique opportunities to hear in-depth discussions about: Re-imagining Regional Cinema, The Regional as the Other in Cinema, Getting the World to See youth Film and Film as Heritage. These topics will be discussed by some of the country’s top industry stakeholders.

For more details, please contact Ms. Bambi Beltran, Festival Director for Cinema Rehiyon 7, through 09471763343 or email your concerns to bambibeltran@gmail.com or Mr. Rene NapeƱas, Head of the Public Affairs and Information Office, through 09285081057, 527-2192 loc 208 or through email address ncca.paio@gmail.com

Dong Abay: Isang Sulat sa Para sa Batang May Sobre

Isang open letter mula sa FB page ni Pinoy Music Icon na si Dong Abay


Relate much ako dito, halos araw-araw may nag aabot ng sobre sa JP Rizal-Guadalupe jeepney route. Nakakaawa ang mga batang ito, minsan kung may Rebisco or skyflakes ako sa bag yun na lang nai-aabot ko, pero may mga araw pauwi na wala talaga ako mabigay. The feels mehn...




SULAT PARA SA BATANG MAY SOBRE

Para sa Iyo, batang Pilipino:

Pasensya ka na kung binalik ko lang sa iyo ang pinamumudmod mong sobre sa aming mga pasahero sa loob ng jeep na ito. Hindi ko man lang nalagyan ng konting barya o kaya'y papel na pera kasi wala rin talaga akong madukot sa bulsa. Wala rin akong baong kahit anong pagkain o bawas na inumin para kahit paano naman magkalaman ka sa tiyan.

Gusto ko lang malaman mo na hindi ko gusto ang nangyayari sa iyo at sa iba pang mga batang tulad mo na sa araw araw ay "trabaho" ang mamalimos sa daan at kung saan-saan. Sanay na kayong huminga sa mausok, maalikabok, maputik, makalat, maingay, magulo at delikadong mga lansangan ng syudad. Nakikipaghabulan kayo sa mga pampasahero at pribadong sasakyan, minsan karga-karga pa ang mga kapatid na sanggol, kumakatok sa salamin, nangangalabit para kaawaan. Minsan naman may dala pa kayong basahan at pilit pinupunasan ang mga sapatos namin pero di naman nalilinisan.

Gusto kong magalit sa iyong mga magulang na dapat sana ay binabawalan kang gawin ang mga bagay na ito pero palagi mong sinasabi na hindi mo rin alam kung nasaan sila, o kaya di mo man lang sila nakilala mula nang isilang ka.

Pero ang mas ikinagagalit ko ay hindi kita matulungan dahil ang dapat tumutulong sa ating mga wala ay wala rin namang pakialam. Kung ikaw ang pag-asa ng ating bayan, hindi ko na alam kung ano ang kinabukasan.
