Kris Aquino Apologizes to Noynoy - MB

For blabbering about his lovelife, Noynoy Aquino had to admonish his sister Kris, who subsequently aired a public apology on showbiz news program, “Showbiz News Ngayon (SNN),” last Sept. 3.

According to the actress-host, who in the past had landed in not a few troubles due to her tactless remarks, his 49-year-old lawmaker brother laments her continued ‘intrusion’ into his private life.

“He doesn’t like it that I continue talking about (his lovelife) and sharing it to the entire world. He reminded me that I am 11 years younger than him and as an older brother, I should give him respect so, Noy, I apologize,” Aquino said.

Kris added she already actually apologized to his older brother earlier via text but that she had to do it again on air.

“I have to promise him that I won’t talk about his lovelife again. So, Noy, I promise, from now on, I won’t talk about it anymore.”

A month ago, during their mother’s funeral mass, Kris reminded his brother about her son Josh’s request for him not to get married as yet.

Josh’s supposed request, Kris said, is for his “Tito Noy (to) never get married.”

A few days ago, she made it clear that the request for extending Noynoy’s bachelorhood was not only Josh’s wish but apparently hers as well.

In “SNN” a few nights past, Kris said she is giving a hundred percent support to the presidential bid of her brother — then requested him to “remain a bachelor.”

"He has so many decisions to make, so I told Noy: 'I only have one request. Whatever is it that you decide, please stay single. I wish you won't complicate life even further."

Kris’ request has earned her the ire of some netizens who wrote about their concerns on the matter.

“It's very selfish for Kris Aquino to ask that kind of request. Her brother, like everybody, deserves to be happy,” read one of many such comments circulating on the web.

Another comment made a swipe at Kris’ controversial past: “She with all her scandalous relationships should be the last person on planet Earth to judge someone else's relations. If she was trying to be funny, well...she wasn't.”

Some thought it suspicious that Kris made her request in light of Noynoy finally revealing the identity of his girlfriend of one year Shalani "Lani" Soledad, a councilor of Valenzuela's second district.

There are talks that Kris and the rest of the Aquino siblings are not in favor of the young politician, owing to their “big age gap” (Noynoy is 49 while Soledad is only 28).

This was belied by Soledad’s camp.

Noynoy has been “uncomfortable” having his relationship revealed to the public. He is particularly concerned about Soledad, who, he said, is not used to being hounded by the media.

“The problem now is that our lives have become a telenovela,” said Noynoy in a past interview.

Pantomina Lyrics And Music

Pantomina is Spanish for pantomime, movements imitating the courtship movements of the rooster and the hen. Ang mga babaye
Kung mayo pa nin agom
Maugay nin aga maugay nin hapon
Alagad kung sinda igua na nin agom
Maugay Octobre, Disyembreng sunudon. Ica palan, Nenang ang pinagsasabi
Magayon na burac sa lugar na ini
Magayon ang tindog malinig ang pisngi
Arin pa daw ang puso ang dai mawili. Can ica sadit pa sadit pa man aco
Si satuyang cawat magkudot-kudotan
Kinudot mo aco kinudot ta ca man
Sabi mo sa saco luhayluhaya man. Ang mga lalake
Hudyan sisaboot
Ang pinagsasabing ngarang pagcamoot
Kundi ang babayeng iyo minahilod
Akong minahiling can mga pangguyod.

Catanduanes Remains Top Abaca-Producing Province - BM

Abaca-fiber production in the country’s top abaca-producing province from January to May 2009 went up by 22 percent to 8,646.32 metric tons (MT), said the Fiber Industry Development Authority (FIDA).

Churches in Catanduanes

Catanduanes is composed of 11 municipalities, but there are 18 parishes distributed island wide. There are 3 parishes in the capital town Virac, 3 in Viga, 3 in Bato and 2 in San Andres. Although radical architectural changes have been made in many of the centuries old churches. From baroque to contemporary architecture and basic structural changes from coral stones to cement. Still many of the old practices and traditions are revered and observed up to this day. Happy Easter! Vicariate of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Vicar Forane: Rt. Rev. Msgr. Jose B.

The Batalay Shrine

The site of the first cross in Catanduanes, believed to have been constructed over the grave of the shipwrecked Fr. Diego de Herrera of the Augustinian order in 1576, who died in the barangay of Batalay. A well believed to have water with healing powers can be found in this shrine. From the town proper of Bato, it would take only 15 minutes to reach this place. Reading the online historical accounts about the fate of Fray Diego de Herrera and Espiritu Santo crew, I found some interesting yet inconclusive accounts as to what really happened. "Located at the Southeastern coast of Catanduanes is a reef called Nagumbuaya Point which is linked by traditional with the place where a Galleon Espiritu Santo taken by Fray Diego de Herrera and nine other companies which embarked from Mexico suffered shipwreck on April 25, 1576 on their way to Cebu because of the negligence of the pilot of the ship and bad weather." - wikipedia In October last year, the Historical and Nautical Archa…

The Old LORAN Station

I only passed once at this former US Coast Guard facility on Panay island when I was a growing-up kid. At that time, the station was no longer operational, but for the locals who used to be civilian employees, for them is a continuing saga. They would tell me stories about seaplanes delivering food supplies and mails, abundant supply of corned beef, men unafraid of rough seas and radar. In my later years, I never had a chance to see LORAN upclose, though had a chance to meet former civilian employees. The last time I heard someone talk about it, was from a resident at Panay island. He said that the former station was completely vandalized and the new occupants now are water buffalo. There should be an initiative to maintain the facility not only as a tourist destination but as well as a historical reminder for our province and also in memory for those who were once part of the station. A description of the air operations at LORSTA Catanduanes: "The island of Catanduanes lie…
