August 23 (Manila time and Nevada time) marked a two-faced day for the world. Two faces from two Filipinos.
A certain Rolando Mendoza, a disgruntled former senior inspector from the Manila Police District, took 25 people hostage in an attempt to get his job back. 9 of them were released, 1 escaped, 7 were injured and 8 were killed.
I'll enumerate my opinion:
1. Mendoza's brother shouldn't resist the arrest and don't get me started on the other Mendoza's on the site. They're not the victims that night.
2. Media blow-by-blow was a huge mistake! It was very obvious that Mendoza's watching the news from the bus. Graphic live feed, I even heard media men laughing as the shots we're fired on their direction. And Mike Enriquez' "utak!". Come on!
3. Uzi, not the submachine gun but the UZI-zeros! No wonder a teen-ager got injured, I'm not saying he deserves it, but we should stop this UZI thing!
4. SWAT: Should We ATtack? Sana Wag Akong Tamaan? and the list goes on..
What happened to the tourist bus on that day, as we all Filipinos know is an isolated case. Philippines is a very safe place for tourist, Manila-scene is just a minor minor place compared to the rest of the Philippines.
We apologize and would like to give our condolences to the family of the tourists whose lives were taken.
Maria Venus Bayonito Raj took the 5th spot in the Miss Universe 2010 beauty pageant. A towering Bicolana, 5ft 9in whose vital stats are, WOW, 35-22-35.
She was the last contestant to be called on the Top 15. Wanna see some reactions? see the video below.
She placed 3rd on the swimsuit competition and was called for the top 10.
She placed 5th on the gown and was included in the top 5. Which means Q&A na ni ka ernie baron.
The famous question from a Baldwin: "What is one big mistake that you've made in your life, and what did you do to make it right?"
Raj raj raj: "In my 22 years of existence, I can say that there is nothing major, major...I mean, problem that I've done in my life, because I am very confident with my family, with the love that they are giving to me. So, thank you so much that I am here. Thank you, thank you so much!"
1. Maganda sya.
2. Maganda diction nya.
4. Matalino sya, Cum Laude.
5. Mahaba exposure nya sa TV, kesa yun iba di man lang nahagip ng camera.
6. Major major is OK, kaso sana Bongang-bonga na lang.
AUGUST 23, 2010. One day. Two faces. Two people. A man who put us in the dark and a woman who shed some light.

para sa 3rd installment ng ONSEhan, 11 words or phrase REAL MEN should never use. Nakuha ko ang inspirasyon mula kay Lourd de Veyra, pero dadagdagan ko ng sarili kong inputs para BONGGA, este para COOL.
ONSE - loveit / lavet
Madalas ko tong marinig sa commercials at sa mga pinoy talkshows. At ang pag-pronounce nito ay as one-word, "lavet".
example: BOY1: pre, ok yun SALT no, ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo pre, loveit!
Parang eto ata ay no explanation needed. Pero minsan eh 2x pa itong binubulalas, "BONGGANG BONGGA"!
example: BOY1: pre, ok yun SALT no, ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo pre, BONGGA!
NWEVE - thingie*
may refer to anything. yun lang!
example: BOY1: pre, ok yun SALT no, ang ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo pre, ay labas yun thingie mo!
OCHO-OCHO - di kaya ng powers ko*
Isa pa ata to, no explanation necessary. Kung dati e si darna at kapitan bawang lang ang may powers, ngayon maski sino e meron na.
example: BOY1: pre, ok yun SALT no, di kinaya ng powers ko ang ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo pre!
SHETE - fave*
may refer to anything you really like or favorite mo.
example: BOY1: pre, fave ko yun SALT, ang ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo pre, fave ko yun hair nya!
SAIS - _ness
Ang hulaping -ness. kinakabit ito sa kahit anong salita, mapatagalog man o english. Either you agree or disagree with something e kakabitan mo ng -ness just to make a stress to your point. likeness, cuteness, asar-ness...
example: BOY1: pre, likeness ko yun SALT, ang ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo pre, cuteness!
SINGKO - palong-palo
Dati kinakatakutan ko ang palo, kasi masakit, nasubukan ko na lahat: sinturon, walis, kawayan at kahoy. aba ngayon e iba na pala ang meaning nito. Kung baga e mabenta o ayos ang isang bagay.
example: BOY1: pre, ok yun SALT no, ang ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo pre, palong-palo!
KWATRO - pak
halintulad ito sa SINGKO. Kasi nga palong-palo so may tunog, PAK! same meaning pero deserving ito ng isang spot kasi mas malala.
example: BOY1: pre, ok yun SALT no, ang ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo pre, pak na pak!
TRES - girl
Madalas ko tong marinig, as in madalas. Di ko na lang sabihin kung saan basta andito ako sa lugar na ito 5days a week. Instead of calling someone by his/her name e "girl" ang itatawag mo sa kanya, worst "gurl".
example: BOY1: girl, ok yun SALT no, ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo gurl!
DOS - kalurkey
Sinasambit ito kapag, nakakabaliw ang isang bagay. Katulad din ito ng "kaloka" noong 80's pero nagevelove na sya.
example: BOY1: pre, ok yun SALT no, ang ganda ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo pre, kalurkey!
UNO - teh
ayan na ang malala, bukod sa girl e teh ang ginagamit. Kung noong 80's e kapatid mo lang ang ate mo, ngayon maski sino ay tinatawag ng teh.
example: BOY1: teh, faveness ko na yun SALT, ang bongga ni Angelina Jolie. BOY2: oo girl, pak na pak!
*entries from Lourd's article
**ang larawang ito ay walang kinalaman sa article, pero maari kayong bumoto: kalurkey o bongga? just post your comments**
