"3 Things" From 1 Great Artist

I just want to post this music video - latest from Jason Mraz - because it doles out positive vibes. I think we really need determination and positivity amidst the calamities in our country, both natural and man-made. By man-made I meant the corrupt acts of our leaders that persistently hound us.  "Persistently hound" is a redundancy; the same way Binay, Napoles, and Purisima, et. al., are redundancies in our government.

Kudos to Mr Mraz for coming up with another motivational music - this guy has a real upbeat attitude about life. Maybe we should all go vegan like him. :)

Alyzza Agustin - The Woman Who Stopped (A) Traffic (Enforcer)

     A lot of us who's been to the Metro had - once or more times over,  one way or another - experienced the bladder-bursting traffic of its thoroughfares AND encountered the ever cunning MMDA enforcers. Swerte ka pag medyo mabait ang nakahuli, pero madalas malas ka. Kaya kundi gutom, mainit ang ulo marahil ang nakahuli sa iyo. Pag gutom, mahina ang Php200; pag mainit ang ulo at wala namang lagnat most likely you'd been slapped with a TVR (traffic violation receipt). So, in other words, wala kang lusot EXCEPT if you're the super sultry, sexy friend of PNP Director for Plans Alexander C. Ignacio. Luckily FHM model Alyzza Agustin, she fits all the super-sultry-sexy superlatives and happens to be the executive assistant or EA (owws!) of Chief Superintendent Ignacio. Allegedly, Ignacio has given Alyzza a permit to carry his signed business card probably to get this hot babe out of traffic snarls and other mishaps.

Ahh, the very erudite  Alyzza rising from the sea
     Sizzling Alyzza apparently didn't think much (or didn't think at all) that posting her "triumph" of dodging TVR with the help of Ignacio's card THEN posting it on Facebook can cause so much brouhaha. Now when the PNP is under siege because of the proliferation of hoodlums in uniforms and corruption among the ranks? Is this woman for real? Oh, lest we forget,  if the card was truly signed by Ignacio, he should be in the hot seat along with PNP Chief Purisima in the Senate.

MMDA Enforcer: Hindi n'yo ba alam na coding kayo? Lisensya n'yo.
Alyzza: Hindi ko dala, eh. Pwedeng ito na lang? (hands him the card)
MMDA: Naku, pwedeng-pwede po ito ma'am. Pwede po kayo mag u-turn dyan, ma'am, ako ang bahala. Baka nauuhaw kayo, ma'am? (Offers his buko juice with a big smile)

     Incidentally, one of the reviews of the novel The Woman Who Stopped Traffic, from which the title above was inspired on, starts with this line: "Be careful who your friends are ... It’s the dawn of social media...". 

     Friends din kaya sina Alyzza at Ignacio sa Facebook?

Back At It

So after a long hiatus, I'm back!

A lot has happened since my last post - Yolanda barreled through, Mandela passed away, Gigi Reyes has returned from abroad, and presidential sister Kris decided to date again. I saw Krissy on TV today sporting her new 'do during the state dinner for US president Obama.  I wonder if she'd able to snag an agent from the Secret Service. Speaking of which I heard salacious news about some members of the SS uncorking too much alcohol and too much of the female species on their posts overseas.  That made me wonder where they're going to spend their R&R during their short stay here. Uhmm, perhaps the KTVS and bars in Pasay are a convenient destination for them.

I really do miss ranting about Kris. LOL.
