VIRAL post – 757,972 people reached in one day: SMC’s Ramon S. Ang (RSA) is the most respected Philippine industrialist

Among the richest people in the Philippines is Ramon S. Ang, more commonly known for his RSA initials. He is the leader of San Miguel Corporation with its subsidiaries Petron, San Miguel Brewery, Magnolia, B-Meg and companies in power generation, packaging, food, beverages, investments and many others. SMC is also involved in the New Manila International Airport being built in Bulacan.

RSA is not your typical low key industrialist who seldom makes headlines because RSA is highly quotable, controversial at times but always straight to the point. His mammoth projects speak volumes about his grand vision and how the Philippines can become much more competitive in the international arena. What really sets RSA apart from fellow rich businessmen is that he consistently delivers the punch line that profit is secondary to service to the community. SMC and RSA have been at the forefront in aid distribution during the pandemic where lots of people lost jobs and opportunities to earn a living. His environmental initiative in cleaning up the Marikina and Pasig Rivers will go a long way in reducing death and destruction due to seasonal floods and improve the quality of the water in the rivers formerly classified as biologically dead.

Inday Sara to run for President or VP

Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte withdrew from her mayoralty re-election race and stated that her brother, Vice Mayor Baste, would run for mayor instead. The twin moves thus set the stage for her candidacy for a national position, theoretically for President, Vice President, senator or party list. Realistically, only the positions of President and Vice President are being considered.

Diehard Duterte senators Bato de la Rosa, running for president and Bong Go, running for vice president are making their slots available for a Sara substitution in the event that she chooses to run under PDP Laban. As the presidential daughter has time and again stated that she will not be joining PDP Laban, then a number of smaller national parties are still there for her. The deadline for substitution is on November 15.

DDS to campaign against pro ABS CBN senators, Kapamilya franchise renewal among issues for 2022 national/presidential elections

Pro Duterte administration voters (called DDS for Du30 Diehard Supporters) out to reduce ABS CBN Senate numbers

Aside from the historic pandemic problems (health, jobs, livelihood, education) that literally ground the Philippine economy to a snail pace, issues such as the drug war, the insurgency and governance are on top of the list as far as the 2022 electorate is concerned. The controversial ABS CBN free television closure and the Manila Bay white sand beach also divide our people. It is safe to presume that those who are against the present administration would want the return of the Kapamilya network on Channel 2 (whose shows are currently hosted by competitors TV5 and the now renamed Zoe TV aside from being present in cable television, YouTube, websites and other internet platforms.

Once a new Congress is in place in the third quarter of 2022, the process of the ABS CBN franchise renewal would once again start at the House of Representatives. An approved bill at the Lower House is then elevated to the Senate.

Among the incumbent senators, at least 14 have signified that they are in favor of an ABS CBN franchise. Senators Ralph Recto and Franklin Drilon are currently serving their second consecutive Senate terms thus they are prohibited by the Philippine Constitution from running for a third consecutive term, therefore they are not in the running for senator for 2022. Senators Nancy Binay, Sonny Angara and Lito Lapid will be in the Senate up to 2025 (in their six year term). Senators Manny Pacquiao and Panfilo Lacson are running for President. Senators Tito Sotto and Francis Pangilinan are running for Vice President. Senators Migz Zubiri, Sherwin Gatchalian, Dick Gordon, Risa Hontiveros and Joel Villanueva are running for re-election.

Note: Re-electionist Senator Leila De Lima is not in the list but presumed to be for an ABS CBN franchise renewal. Senator Grace Poe, senator till 2025, is pro Kapamilya too.

PEPSI 2012 yung AAPE (unggoy) nagmukhang RAPE; Tito Vic and Joey nanguunggoy (Pepsi product can may unggoy din)

Pepsi wins worst advertisement award over font choice in AAPE promotion

A co-promotion between Pepsi’s Hong Kong division and Japanese clothing maker A Bathing Ape started out with promise. But the font choice is what derailed the whole project.

September 24, 2013

In the campaign, a limited edition camo-can, t-shirts, electronics and umbrellas were all emblazoned with the new Pepsi + AAPE branding.

But then they decided to run the slogan in Pepsi’s iconic sloping text. Disaster ensued.

The campaign isn’t a new idea. In fact, it’s a 2012 promotion which was extended into 2013 because of its wild success. Apparently nobody noticed that the A in the Pespi typeface looks remarkably similar to a R, making the whole slogan appear to read Pepsi x Rape.

Once the photo went (predictably) crazy on Reddit, the rest of the Internet was quick to chime in.

We have to wonder how many people saw the mockups of this ad campaign and thought nobody would notice. Well, to their credit, it took a long time for people to put up a fuss about it. The campaign was first launched in Aug. 2012.


BaGo ang gusto ng mga DDS (kung talagang ayaw ni Sara)

Habang papalapit ang November 15 deadline for substitution, sabik na sabik ang mga DDS at may halong pangamba din sapagkat walang kasiguraduhan ang pagtakbo ni Inday Sara para sa pambansang posisyon. Si Bato de la Rosa para pangulo at Bong Go para sa VP ang mga magiging pambato ng mga DDS. Kapag lagpas na ang araw ng pagpapalit, si Tatay Digong ang magpapahiwatig ng kaniyang mga manok sa pamamagitan ng pagtataas ng mga kamay nito. Umaasa tayo na kapag pinal na ang listahan ng mga kandidato ay makakausad na ang kampanya.

BBM VP from VizMin – Pacman? Ace Durano? Others?

Most presidential and vice presidential tickets for the May 2022 national elections are still tentative because everyone is still waiting for the November 15 substitution deadline. Will Davao City Mayor and presidential daughter Inday Sara Duterte finally agree to run for higher office? Will any of the already declared presidential candidates (Pacman, Isko, BBM, Leni and Ping) slide down and run for VP instead?

From the BBM camp, the ideal running mate would be Pacman. BBM is strong in Regions 1 (Ilocos), 2 (Cagayan Valley) and NCR. Pacman is from Mindanao and has a huge following there more so if Sara Duterte remains as Davao City chief executive. Pacman also has significant drawing power among the Bisayan speaking areas of the Visayas.

Assuming that Pacquiao remains a contender for the highest office of the land, BBM may tap local kingpins in the Visayas, such as Ace Durano, former Tourism Secretary and former Congressman from vote rich Cebu. Durano is contesting the Province of Cebu gubernatorial seat in 2022 against the incumbent Gwen Garcia. Governor Garcia is the odds on favorite to win re-election. Durano may thus be amenable to be “kicked upstairs” and aspire for the vice presidency.

Inday Sara Duterte binanatan si Ramon Tulfo at Philippine Star (na pagaari ng mga DILAWANG BELMONTE) dahil sa pagkakalat ng CHISMIS laban sa kaniya, Tatay Digong at Bong Go

Reply to Tulfo column
The Philippine Star
October 27, 2021

This is about the article written by Mr. Ramon T. Tulfo entitled “Plan C” in his column Sentinel on Oct. 26, 2021. The article betrayed how The Philippine STAR values its credibility and integrity as one of the country’s leading sources of news and information. At face value, it’s not very hard to know that Mr. Tulfo was peddling wild conjectures, lies, intrigues and chismis in this Plan C article, which entirely was based on hearsay.Of the more than 20 Plan C paragraphs, seven were devoted to pure chismis about me, President Rodrigo Duterte and Senator Bong Go.

Let me quickly and simply break it down for you.

Chismis: My little birdies in Cebu said that Sara might just run as Bongbong’s party-mate to upset Sen. Christopher “Bong” Go, who’s running for the vice presidency.

Chismis: She also wants to unsettle her father, President Digong.

Chismis: Several times during the party, Sara expressed abhorrence over Go’s close bonding with her father, according to one of my little birdies (By little birdy I mean sources, not the other meaning. – RTT).

Chismis: Sara implied that even after getting elected senator, Bong Go continues to be “servile” – that’s not my choice of wording, but of my little birdies – to Digong.

Chismis: There’s nothing wrong with Bong being a servant to her father, Sara implied; it’s just that she and her siblings can’t go directly to the President without passing through him.

Chismis: As we all know, there’s bad blood between daughter and father.

Chismis: Sara hasn’t gotten over her parents’ separation; she sides with her mother, Elizabeth Zimmerman, a Filipino-German who’s a former Philippine Airlines flight attendant.

The rest of the article was either unimportant, given or another load of hogwash and untruths that we’ve all heard before.

Plan C was stitched by someone that no self-respecting individual – much more a member of the media – should find inspiration from.

Mr. Tulfo’s article should be found not in any of the main pages of The Philippine STAR – unless The Philippine STAR is a rumormonger publication or a tabloid that serves people like Mr. Tulfo.

This brings me to inevitably question the vetting process that your newspaper observes and follows before publishing articles.

Lastly, as the object of Mr. Tulfo’s journalistic irresponsibility, courtesy of The Philippine STAR, I deserve an apology – however, I am not expecting.

Daghang salamat. – Mayor Inday Sara Duterte, Davao City

Build Build Build – Salamat P-Noy daw, Digong ribbon cutter at credit grabber lang

Nanggagalaite ang mga DILAWAN tuwing may larawan si Pangulong Duterte sa mga proyekto ng DPWH at DOTr sapagkat pawang mga naumpisahan daw ang mga ito sa panahon ni dating P-Noy RIP at pinagpatuloy lang sa pagpasok ng Pamahalaang Duterte. Sabi naman ng mga DDS na marami sa mga plano ni P-Noy ay problemado sa simula (kagaya ng Skyway 3) at naresolba lamang ang mga isyu (kagaya ng right of way) sa tulong na ng kasalukuyang administrasyon kaya doon palang umusad at natapos ang mga airport, tulay at highway.

Isang proyektong mariing tinutulan at patuloy na tinunutulan ng mga DILAWAN ay ang Manila Bay white sand beach sapagkat hindi raw dapat inatupag ang pagpapaganda ng lugar sa gitna ng pandemya. Dapat daw ay ayuda sa mga nagugutom at trabaho para sa mga nawalan ng hanapbuhay dahil sa COVID 19 ang pinaglaanan ng pera.

Wala pa ang pandaigdigang problema sa kalusugan, ang Boracay rehabilitation ay isinagawa sapagkat malaki ang problema ukol sa sewage (dumi ng tao) na nailagay na sa alanganin ang mga lumalangoy sa beach. Todo ngawa si VP Leni sapagkat napilitan sarhan ang tourist spot ng ilang buwan para maipatupad ang paglilinis, paggawa ng mga poso negro at ligtas na pagtapon sa dagat.

Ngayong ang mga DILAWAN ay nagdaos ng pagkilos pulitikal sa Boracay para pasikatin si Lugaw Robredo at batikusin si Tatay Digong hindi na naalala ng mga walang utang na loob na ang pagpapaganda ng Boracay ay dahil sa ginawa ng Pamahalaang Duterte. So, sino na ang CREDIT GRABBER ngayon?
