Quoted: PGMA's 2009 State of the Nation Address

22 comments

  • "I will defend democracy..."
  • "I have never declared martial law..."
  • "I have never expressed the desire to extend my term..."
  • "I have been falsely accused of using my position for profit..."
  • "Those who lived in glass houses should not cast stones..."
  • "Governance is not about looking and getting even..."

The above quoted statements are taken by yours truly from the recently concluded President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's State of the Nation Address - July 27, 2009.




The State of the Nation Address or better known in its acronym - SONA, is one of the most controversial and highly criticized event in the Philippines' Republic. And the main reason behind this is the fact that this is a very special event wherein the current President of the Philippines reports on the status of the nation as a whole - in different areas and perspective, normally to the resumption of the Congress' joint session (the House of Representatives and the Senate). This is one of the duties of the Philippine President as stated in Article VII, Section 23 of the 1987 Constitution:
"The President shall address the Congress at the opening of its regular session. He may also appear before it at any other time."


The following 5 quoted statements are the 5 things which PGMA included in the list of her administration's achievements:


  • "We have a strong economy in a strong fiscal position to withstand political shocks."
  • "We built new modern infrastructure and completed unfinished ones."
  • "The economy is more fair to the poor than ever before."
  • "We are building a sound base for the next generation."
  • "International authorities have taken notice that we are safer from environmental degradation and man-made disasters."


With this recently concluded event, there have been mixed reviews given by the people of the Philippines towards PGMA's SONA itself, but more importantly to her governance as a whole. I shall bear witness to these reviews... I have heard people praising her for her achievements and I have heard people mocked her.

And later, I will be revealing my personal views or reviews rather, on such issue - particularly in PGMA's governance as a whole. So you better watch out for it on my next posts...

Being a member of Cebu's finest bloggers, the Cebu Bloggers Society, I am greatly honored and pleased to have experienced the even greater Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort in its 20th year. It is indeed one of the best experiences I have had in my entire life.



Maribago Bluewater Cebu is getting bigger and bigger, moreover, it has created an image that made it more appealing and impressive to each travelers, tourists or anyone who has the desire to take a plunge.


And just like what a fellow blogger has stated, Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort is more than just a resort. It is also socially responsible by simply being mindful of its responsibilities towards the environment and even the public's benefit.


Also, I would like to say that if I really enjoyed Maribago Bluewater, then might as well try Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort.

The Bitter Realization of the Broken Soul

12 comments

Pity for myself, for no matter how I tried not to be affected still I am affected. But what made things worst was the very fact that no matter how I wanted and tried to make things right, still I ended up unappreciated and unworthy of it.

All of us goes through our own ups and downs in life. And being labeled as civilized human being, we have what we call defense mechanisms that are socially acceptable. What is unacceptable to me now, is how events has turned the other way around and how it has affected me so much.

Like what I have mentioned before, I have never really been a kind of person who normally holds grudges because I know for a fact that it will not do me any good at all, but because of what had happened I am starting to become one. I even learned how to push my anger to its very limit.

As an individual and as a social being, it is important that we become socially aware and responsible. Not just for the good of ourselves but for others as well. But maybe what I thought and what I just did is a big mistake. I just actually tried to correct the wrong doings of a certain 'trash' since obviously, it's already becoming habitual. But such act created a certain negative image or impression in me that I just cannot comprehend and even accept no matter how I have tried. Never in my entire life that I was humiliated with such intense... that it has affected me so much and eventually became an agony.

I am currently in the mode of healing myself with this pain that is brought by bitter reality. I chose to do it just by myself to avoid complication and to avoid occurrences where I might end up losing my sanity.

Yes, I am disappointed. And I am disappointed not because of how things ended up but because of what reality had taught me. Indeed, it is really sad that there are still people in this world who could care less with the people around them, and could even done such selfish acts for the benefit of their self-centered selves. Moreover, the saddest and very disappointing part here, is for me to realize that there are really individuals who could pretend to be blind, deaf, and mute over facts in exchange of a certain prize.

I have tried controlling my emotions... and I have even tried holding it as much as I could. But instead of making me feel better, it has built and created anger, depression, pain and shame. And eventually resulted to my incapacity to think, communicate, and to socialize in the better sense.

To you who have done this to me, you will never have an idea how much pain, suffering and humiliation you have caused me! Your selfish acts need not be tolerated.

In Search for the Light

6 comments

I long to accomplish a great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.

Today, I shall start my search for the right path - the path that would perhaps lead me to answer all my doubts and troubles, and most of all, the path that would help me end up this total darkness I am currently into.

I hope and pray that I could really find a road out of this depression, frustration and pain...


And just for today, please let me be just by myself... Let me try to figure out what went wrong, and why this agony continue to let me suffer.

When the BROKE Gets BROKEN

... and just when I thought the broken pieces was about to be fixed, it was broken into pieces again...

"The only thing that will keep you going is learning to love what you are doing... Your work fills up a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is GREAT WORK and the only way to do GREAT WORK is to love what you do... If you haven't found it yet, keep looking... DON'T SETTLE!!!" - Steve Jobs


... can't seem to post right now, 'coz I am totally out of focused... I am out of senses... can't think, can't feel, can't smell, can't see...

Can't Get Over of NOBODY, Nobody But You!

30 comments

Admit it or not, this song has been making a great leap for the group of ladies behind this, the WONDER GIRLS. NOBODY - nobody but you, is already considered phenomenal at this stage. Fact is, they are currently the words of different mouths lately especially when we talk about music and entertainment... the arguments or debates between individuals, of different walks in life shall bear witness or proof to this fact.

I am not really a fan, and another fact is, I normally don't go or patronize music written and performed in foreign language except for Filipino of course... it's not that I am a racist because I really am not, but for the reason that I don't understand the message behind the music and it's kinda irritating to sing songs that I can't even manage to read lyrics well. But hey, NOBODY, is definitely an exception!
