‘Sa manlulupig, ’di ka pasisiil’

ANG mga tumutulong na naghihintay ng kapalit ay katulad din ng isang ulupong: marahang humahaplos subalit ubod higpit sa paglingkis. Ganyan ang gustong mangyari ng European Union o EU sa kanilang grant na nagkakahahalaga ng P13 billion. Tutulungan nila ang…

‘Galit’ sa mga korap? Eh, di…wow!

BEFORE proceeding, one noisy ‘Happy Birthday!’ to Jazney Rehuel Reyes-del Rosario and Pauline Lei Reyes, who (jointly) celebrated their birthday yesterday in Sto. Tomas, Batangas. Harinawang magsilaki kayong may takot sa Diyos at paggalang sa inyong mga magulang. And may…

‘Paano na ang mga sticker sa salamin?’

Marami nang mga debate sa paglabas ng Anti-Distracted Driving Act (ADDA). Bawal na ang paggamit ng cellphones sa loob ng anumang sasakyan habang tumatakbo ito sa kalye. Bawal ding gamitin ang cellphone (cp) kahit nakatigil sa traffic light o kahit…
