IT’s OFFICIAL! ‘Lolong,’ captured in Southern Philippines, is the biggest crocodile in the world. Close second is ‘Gloria,’ who is roaming free on Congress.
On a related news, former President GMA sought approval for medical treatment abroad. The Department of Justice denied the request and current President Noynoy Aquino offered government fund to cover medical expenses, including the transport of experts to the Philippines. Taxpayers pay for medical expenses of the ex-President, who allegedly took taxpayers’ money during her term. All-out justice at its finest!
Seven billion and counting! It took 123 years for the world’s population to go from one billion to two billion but only 12 to grow from six billion to seven billion, according to a report of Graphic World. The Philippines’ symbolic 7 billionth baby Danica May Camacho was born at the Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila, minutes before the clock ticked to 31 October 2011. The National Statistics Office is yet to confirm as to what percentage of the country’s population is related to patriarch Ramon Revilla, Sr.
Speaking of the Revillas, the entire family is grieving over the murder of Ramgen, eldest son of Ramon Sr. from Genelyn Bautista. Suspects are the victim’s siblings, RJ and Ramona. RJ is currently detained on Parañaque City jail while Ramona fled to Hongkong several days after the incident and is now believed to be in Turkey. To which ex-President GMA said, “Unfair!”
Another Bautista on the news. Elena Bautista-Horn, GMA loyalist spokesperson, shed tears on the ABS-CBN News Channel’s Headstart on Wednesday 09 November 2011. Host Karen Davila asked her why she stays loyal to Arroyo despite the battles she has to face. She even compared her client against Senator Panfilo Lacson, who went missing abroad during the heat of allegations against him. To which Lacson replied, “Don’t change the topic!”
Totally unrelated (in a way), prior the appointment confirmation of Mar Roxas as Secretary of the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC), Sen. Panfilo Lacson asked Roxas in Filipino, “Is it true that Korina is pregnant?” To which Boy Abunda yelled, “IKAW NA!”
This is Xy, #breakingthesilence.
