    The Chinese have owned the RP economy for 100 years or more.

    My last flight with Cebu Pacific was, I guess, about 8 years ago.

    There was an in-flight game, "hold up an item beginning with a certain letter of the alphabet", everybody was holding up sweaty Shoes, and similar items.

    The first passenger to hold a shoe in the air won a cheap nylon Cebu Pacific carry bag.

    I wish I could forget.

    There are two airlines I would never voluntarily fly with: Cebu Pacific and Ryanair and for pretty much the same reasons. More often than not though, I've found that between Davao and Cebu and between Davao and Manila, the cheaper flights were offered by PAL

    Ive watched for years how corrupt politics have treated the poor masses here.
    I have many examples but one of the best is how the poor were so badly robbed and cheated out of world donations after Yolanda and the Bohol earthquake. Billions of Pesos.
    Perhaps it`s time for a new regime?
    Personally,I do not care as it`s none of my business. We are nothing more than guests that decided to stay a bit longer and we have zero rights to views about how things are run here.
    What will be will be.

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—

    Because I was not a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Candidate becomes Palawan town mayor after winning ‘best of three’ coin toss

    A candidate became the mayor of the town of Araceli in Palawan after she won a coin toss today.

    Sue Cudilla, Araceli’s former mayor, defeated the incumbent mayor Noel Beronio when they had a coin toss at a little past 3pm, reported Rappler. The toss didn’t occur once; it was a best of three, meaning Cudilla won the game twice.


    The win was decided by a coin toss because Beronio and Cudilla got the same amount of votes in this week’s election —
