Sandamakmak….sangkatutak…sanlaksa na ang mga teleserye ang nagdaan sa ating buhay ang iba ay nagmarka ng todo at kulang na lamang ay magmakaawa ka sa istasyon na pahabain pa o di kaya’y dugtungan o gawan pa ng part II or part III (OA na anu po?)… na halos hilahin mo na ang mga oras…minuto at sandali para muli mo na namang masubaybayan ang susunud na kabanata. Hindi na magkasya sa aking balintataw kung paanu ang isang simpleng kwento ay magiging isang kumplikado at masalimuot na pakikipagsapalaran ng mga bida….kadalasan nahuhulug ka na at nakakalimutan mo na ang sarili mong hilahil at mga pangamba sa buhay sa isang banda mabuti na rin sa kadahilanang mababaw lang pala ang iyong dinadala at may mas malala pang problema sa mundo ah masasabing mapalad ka pa pala na malusutan mo ang tila baga pasanin na bahagi na ng pang-araw araw mong buhay.

ang kapamilya at kapuso ay nagpapaligsahan sa lahat ng uri ng palabas maging ito man ay comedy, drama o mga reality shows pero mas nakakaangat ang drama na isang repleksyon ng tunay na buhay na inilalarawan ng mga sinusubaybayan nating pakikipagsapalaran ng bida na umahon at magtagumpay sa walang tigil na pagdating at pambubulabog ng walang katapusang mga problema na kadalasa’y….pera…pera…at pera ang dahilan.

nasaksihan natin si Melai sa loob ng bahay ni Kuya…naging pamilyar tayo at nakilala ang tunay nyang katauhan ang pagiging masayahin, maingay at mga char-char owver…napagtanto din natin kung paano siya pinalaki ng kanyang mga magulang, nakilala rin natin ang kanyang mga kaibigan na sina Karen at Daisy pati na rin ang kanyang ex-boyfren na si Pareng Roy. Nagsisisi kaya sya na siya ang unang nakipag break kay Melai? Anuman ang sabihin ng mga kritiko at mga tagahanga ni Paul Jake na niluto ang labanan hindi mapapasubalian na si Melai ang tunay at karapat-dapat na tanghaling big winner. Maaring tama ang iba sa pagsasabing hindi makatarungan na pag mayaman ka ay wala ka ng karapatang magkamit ng gantimpala sapagkat ano pa nga ba ang mahihiling mo ay nakamit mo na ang kaginhawahan sa buhay samantalang kung ikaw ay isang mahirap ay tunay nga namang isang pribilihiyo o ” a dream come true” ang tunay na makakamit… na isang tagumpay na tunay na napakatamis.

Aminin man natin o hindi tayo ay alipin ng mass media… ang telebisyon ay bahagi ng ating buhay… ang anumang pagod, pagdaramdam, pagkalugmok ay sumandaling nalilimutan sa mga pagpapatawa ni Melai na natural at di pilit ang dating pati si Big brother ay pinipigilang humagalpak o gumulong sa katatawa.

Nakakagulat ang reaksyon ng mga tao sa tambalang Jason at Melai o kilala sa loveteam na MELASON kung bubuklatin ko ang aking twitter ay hinulaan ko na isa sa kanila ang tatanghaling “big winner” isang pambihirang pagkakataon na sila ang unang pumasok sa bahay ni Kuya si Melai sa house A at si Jason naman sa house B sa sumunod na linggo ay pinagpalit sila Tom at Melai kung kaya’t sila ay nagkadaupang palad.

melason ever

Kung anuman ang maaring mangyari sa kanilang buhay ay ating patuloy na masasaksihan sa pagbubukas ng “reali serye” kunsaan sila na ang bida…di ba rubi? kung saan man sila dalhin ng kapalaran ay tunay na exciting sapagkat sa buhay showbiz sinasabing “you’re only good as your last project/series?

wow dami na nila raket….di na ‘to char-char guys!!

ang bagsik ni ONDOY

Sa sobrang bilis ng mga pangyayari sa buhay natin ay hindi natin namamalayan ang pagdaan ng mga araw at sandali na tila baga isang kisap mata na lamang na nakikiraan ng walang pasintabi. Ang bagyong ONDOY ay nagdulot ng kasawian sa humigit-kumulang na tatlong-daang mga nilalang na ni sa hinagap ay hindi makapaniwala na isang Sabado ng umaga ng Setyembre 26, 2009 ay magiging isang malagim at kalunos-lunos para sa higit na nakararaming residente sa Metro Manila partikular ang Marikina, Pasig, Cainta, Taguig, Antipolo at mga probinsya ng Laguna at Batangas na mga naging biktima ng malawakang pagbaha na nagdulot ng kasawian na gumimbal sa buong mundo…nahigitan niya ang trahedya na idinulot ng hurricane Katrina sa Amerika at ang dami ng ulan na nagsimula ng hapon at magdamag ng Biyernes at kinabukasan pa ng Sabado ay nagtala ng hindi makakalimutang record ng kapinsalaan.

Tunay na nakakapanlumong pagmasdan ang mga mukha ng mga taong walang sulingan sa kaliwa’t kanang pagdaing, ang patuloy na pagtaas ng tubig sa isang kisap mata ay isang bagay na hindi natin kayang pigilan, kami ng aking kapatid at ang aming Tita ay nakatakdang pumunta sa St. Luke’s Hospital upang kunin ang “biopsy” result ni Ella sa thyroid scan, may plano din si Tita Lol na dumaan kay Doktor Buenviaje sa Delos Santos Hospital ngunit tila baga isang babala ang naganap sa amin upang huwag kaming gumayak ng maaga, nakabihis na si Tita Lol ng kami ay magising at nakapagtataka nga na hindi nya kami minamadali. Nag “oron” pa kami habang kumakain ng umagahan at hindi namin namalayan na pumapasok na ang tubig sa loob ng bahay. Hindi lingid sa ating kaalaman na isang pangkaraniwan ng tanawin sa residente ng Sampaloc ang baha sa España at sa mga kalyeng nakapalibut dito hinde na pinapansin na parang isang karaniwan na lamang na kaganapan, ngunit kakaiba ito dahil hindi na humihinto…as in non-stop. Nakakatakot…..isang masamang panaginip….isang DELUBYO….ito na baga ang katapusan ng mundo?

Its the time of the year where we truly pin our hopes alive…its the same feeling when we are in our seats waiting for Manny Pacquiao’s fight….for 36 long years its but natural to expect for something which we have long been wishing and praying for…and that is to restore our glory days which had been so elusive..we cherished the moment when Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran made us proud..so it was like ten years since Miriam Quaimbao got in the headlines for being a first runner-up for Ms. Botswana.. said to be a landlocked country in South Africa.. and everyone feels that it’s time for us to steal the thunder from Venezuela….but things didn’t turn out well as we’ve all expected it to be…the thousand WHY’s?? were screamed to high heavens…when top 15 gets underway everyone’s so excited about it…..but lo and behold the emcees had already announced 14 candidates and Ms. Venezuela hasn’t been called yet…nonetheless we were still that hopeful considering how we are so damn proud of Pamela Bianca Manalo as she’s really got what it takes to be Ms. U this year… she’s oozing with poise, grace and elegance her vibrancy and radiance shone through and a lot of people online thought that she would surely land into the top 15..
pamela bianca manalo in her national costume

i made it a point to monitor her online i voted for her on Ms. Photogenic poll and OMG it made me believe that she was a strong contender to top 10 or top 5 shoo-in… but it was whew just unfortunate that the judges’…anti-asian stance can ruin our day… they didn’t have anything in mind other than the prowess powerhouse…venezuela…venezuela…venezuela…sila na nga lamang baga ang may K na maging Ms. Universe?!!

It maybe a big DUH to some people how i reacted this way as we really cannot do anything anymore about judges preferences…the most awaited Monday for us Pinoys turned out to be so LUGMUK as in…i couldn’t eat much lest work normally realizing how i have put my heart and soul into thinking how i would scream my heart out loud the moment she calls on centerstage.
absolutely stunning Bianca

Indeed Samuel Johnson’s quote which i wrote in a scratch paper in college holds true to death” the pleasure of expecting enjoyment is often greater than that of obtaining it…and the completion of every wish is found a disappointment”..

Bianca Manalo hands down gave her best shot with the most eye catching catwalks during the pre-pageant night…she was one of those candidates who was well-applauded, she was absolutely …extremely alluring in her blue gown…she’s one of the best looking if not the loveliest Bb. Pilipinas-Universe ever…she is indeed a woman of substance like almost every Miss Universe before her.

pamela bianca manalo..ms u

well everything may not really seem to fit in our favor as my very own top picks suffered miserably…sobrang bagsak...so sad talaga...Kris Aquino mode….i don’t really claim such an expertise on this as i’m just a plain spectator…a miron so to speak.. or more of a fan to say the least yeah but at some point i’ve proven sometime in one way or another that a mere instinct can really do wonders but…not this time baby… as it turns out to be oh uh-uh 5/15 result. i never want to take a look back at my notes ever again…it seems that my magic in making “hula” all these years took a plunge like a dismal flop at the box office haha

the most beautiful day in the universe!!

Posted on : 23-08-2009 | By : | In : EMOTE ka dyan!!

Tomorrow is the day… yes… for the 84 lovely candidates who would vie for the most coveted title ever…the 2009 Ms. Universe….dubbed by abs-cbn network as oh my…the most beautiful day in the universe.…the most awaited day for us suckers for beauty pageants…Ms. Universe is definitely the ultimate if not the famous beauty tilt one can get hooked on…Ms. Universe 2009 comes to the Atlantis Paradise Resort in the breathtaking Islands of the Bahamas for a night of a universal glamour and prestige in search of the most beautiful woman in the universe yey..

Of course we’re keeping our high hopes alive for our very own representative Ms. Philippines….Pamela Bianca Manalo…she’s absolutely gorgeous filipina from the family of beauty queen (from her aunt to her sister Kat) who has earned some raves during the preliminaries….she came out so confidently during pre-pageant night….pamela bianca manalo profile pic mabuhay phils

The beauties of the world will all gather this Sunday…August 24…Monday morning here…. to compete for the title Ms. Universe 2009..hosted by access hollywood co-anchor Billy Bush and Claudia Jordan of The Celebrity Apprentice.. the pageant will air live on NBC in the USA and at abs-cbn channel 2 over here in the Philippines…i’m just wondering how on earth would i be able to catch it live knowing the fact that it’s a start of a working week being a Monday and a morning at that….wohoo!!

Dayana Mendoza…Ms. Universe 2008

Bombarded with all those predictions left and right….here…there and everywhere… i also have my own top 15 which i’ve practically chosen based on i guess…just plain instinct and “feel” churva…for the past three weeks i really made it a point to watch its feature on TV which have formed part of who i think would make it to top 15…yes..i offer my prayers to Bianca as i thought its about time for us to bring home the bacon so to speak….well….let’s all hope for the best guys…on with my top 15 yey :)

Time flies so fast when you’re havin fun…so goes Gloria Estefan’s hit…saying niceties is easy once you get the feel of it…what can be off is saying rude to people and make them “wap-wap” in one corner. I don’t intend to make a mountain out of a molehill…naks as i value in keeping a low profile…it makes you time to think and makes you more humble for not stooping down so low and ahaa look more intelligent….maski de...it also helps you to learn and be a better blogger…ay yan naman naaa!

Yeah i’m emoting….today’s not quite an ordinary day for donnawhattosay..its her one month of existance today yehey…gustu ku sanang manlibri peru baka pede sa fiesta na laang? Modesty aside…it has gone a little long way thingy in terms of having an improved page views…Mutya saves me for a sorry miserable stake. I used to visit a number of times in one day to lurk if there’s a comment already but i cannot find one…arre ay may nagbabasa kaya nitung mga kinakaput-kaput ku…para yatang wala laang kundi aku.

I’m keeping a blog for my friendster account for close to two years now and you know whattt? it has 64 entries already thus attaining….tarannnn “senior citizen status” arohoyy does that mean that it would now avail a 23% discount in all the drugstores…moviehouses….chowking….jolibee etc?

I remember what Metz told me when i joined Ka Rosie’s group doing an excursion at Kapuso network a couple of years ago….we toured Channel 7 and watched the 3rd anniversary of Mel and Joey where in an instant i got a water purifier..akaw ay de aku makapaniwala dyaski…parang ang bait naman ng kapalaran…maski de.. He told me that i was pretty much doing a fine job in being a senior citizen trainee hahaha…o ay anu lan naman sabi ku….but seriously i do get a good slap of reality now that i’m not getting any younger anymore although a little voice in my head convinces me not to think about it.

When Otoy Kidlat ask me if i’m interested to have my own site, i did have some second thoughts….other people claim to be writers and ohh soo good at it all i have is a passion period but at that back of my mind i wanna give it a try….so go….honestly i was surprised to open the site last week when i started my MUTYA karir post…asos andami na comments

Farewell President Cory

Posted on : 07-08-2009 | By : | In : EMOTE ka dyan!!

PHILIPPINES-AQUINO/

We bade farewell to a great woman who has truly touched our lives…an icon of global democracy that made us proud of being a Filipino. I can vividly remember how excited i was for being a first time voter for 1986 Snap Presidential Election not knowing how my vote for her would make a big impact in history as it would pave a way for a bloodless revolution that toppled the Marcos government. It really wasn’t easy for me to even consider myself idealistic and mighty proud of my first ever experience to exercise my “right of suffrage” thingy never realizing in the long run how i deeply hurt my Tatay and Nanay who had been a Marcos loyalist from the very start. And to compensate for defying them with what could be an important decision for me that i have to stick come hell or high water….i have tried my best to be a good daughter by going home early and being obedient with household errands.

Philippines Obit Aquino

When you’re young and you feel that you have a mind of your own to decide on what you think and believe is right..its just as natural to go and fight for it no matter how hard it was for them to accept it.. My siblings and I have always been vocal on whatever issue that is going around us even at a young age, we understood the political situation as we were fond of listening to news over the radio and hear stories from older people in the neighborhood.

Philippines Obit Aquino

Cory magic from the time that she finally convinced to run for public office and the moment she stepped down to Presidency to become a citizen Cory has never faltered. She had consistently made a mark for being the most loved, admired, respected and influential figure in politics. We regarded her as a powerful persona who had a great influence on people to remain steadfast thus keeping our hopes alive to attain what is good for our country….

tita cory glowing

When news came out that she finally breath her last on the dawn of August 1, almost all the people who have watched Kris Aquino at dbuzz last Sunday has cried bucket of tears the whole time. Why does a great mother and a voice of reason has to suffer so much with a tough ordeal that has cut-short her meaningful life.

Our own life journey has its bumps and grinds coupled with unforgettable not so ordinary experiences of lost, despair and painful goodbyes of both our parents, everytime i hear stories of sufferings brought about by an illness….my heart bleeds trying to figure out the “why’s” of it all and that why do good people have to suffer and die in pain. When President Cory was diagnosed to have a cancer of the colon, things on my mind started to unravel thinking how our Tatay had gone through with what could be the most painful things that has ever hit us….helplessness…you wanted to do something but you cannot do anything. When Nanay had a fatal stroke that made her bedridden for seven years…i wanted to die ahead of her….i couldn’t imagine how things would turn out if she’s no longer there for us…Kris’s remark struck a chord in me ” i never knew what life’s gonna be like if i won’t be able to receive a text from Mom congratulating me for a new show”. It was soo hard to let go of someone who has been there for you who has been your inspiration and a source of strength many times over.

Hey it all started at friendster when i begun to share my thoughts on anything that came to mind… but it was only last Friday when Kidlat sent me a message on facebook if i’m interested to have my own web page in Batangbaler…i was stunned…de ku talaga alam isasagut ku hehehe…but it didn’t take me so long to give a nod….so yun…just like a breeze…donna what to say as Kid puts it is …reborn..DWTS…..ssssshhh.. may sounds like a radio station yeah… is inspired by an 80’s OPM super hit….DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO….DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY…my super favorite “senti & torpe song…want me to sing this for you guys? haha

I have loved you only in my mind
But I know that there will come a time
You’ll feel this feeling I have inside

You’re a ‘hopeless romantic’ is what they say
Falling in and out of love just like a play
Memorizing each line I still don’t know what to say
What to say…

Refrain:
Don’t know what to do whenever you are near
Don’t know what to say my heart is floating in tears
When you pass by I could fly
Every minute every second of the day
I dream of you in the most special way
You’re beside me all the time

I have loved you and I’ll always will
Call it crazy but I know someday you’ll feel
This feeling I have for you inside

I’m a hopeless romantic I know I am
Memorized all the lines but here I am
Struggling for words I still don’t know what to say

Don’t know what to do whenever you are near
Don’t know what to say my heart is floating in tears
When you pass by I could fly
Every minute every second of the day
I dream of you in the most special way
You’re beside me all the time

Every minute every second of the day
I dream of you in the most special way
You’re beside me all the time

All the time…
All the time…
All the time…

Originally sung by Ric Segreto, revived by Rachel Alejandro and Lea Salonga the song was composed by Odette Quesada who also wrote A Friend of Mine, A Long Long time Ago, Home, To Love Again and many other big hits…

Doing a blog has become a hobby for a little less than two years now…i’ve posted my first ever entry on September 27, 2007….there was a lull when my pc has to replace a new landcard and i couldn’t get the groove back….kuning…kuning….i’m such an ultimate fan of Bianca & Zanjo (BIANJO) of PBB Celebrity Edition.. in the tradition of TomKat and Brangelina who at that time did create quite a stir in showbiz…..i did have a privilege to personally get in touch with Bia’s mom…Tita O and Zanjoe’s Dad…Tatay Z thru pm (private messages).

Angel Locsin’s big switch from kapuso to kapamilya has also caught my attention and i became a super fanatic to make some karir Angelmania series to boot….i also became a certified WOLFY coined after my fave fantaserye LOBO which starred Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin….i did some truckloads of major mushy..super cheesy posts for pinoy exchange.com..which made me a passionate uber to the max OA-feel-na-feel forumer CULASHA and a demure FIONA at OFB, [email protected] and [email protected]

So last Sunday…even if i knew already that Otoy Kidlat is about to get through with it… still it came as a big slash pleasant surprise for me when it landed a “banner story chuvanez…for like four days at batangbaler website..yehey

bb_donnawhat

Ate Donna, the one behind the Tribute to Baler series posted here, here, and here, has been keeping a blog on her trusty friendster account for more than a year now. Some energy saving lamp suddenly popped-up in my spoonful of a brain when I read her posts and offered her her own space in Batangbaler. A couple of day later and the blog is reborn. It’s called Donna What to Say and according to the blog’s description, it offers “spunky… spirited… striking… sensible… sweet… starstruck… hip… hyper… heartfelt!!” contents, the kind I would have liked to put on Batangbaler myself if i’m not gifted with chronic case of laziness. Visit her site, you will like it. It’s at donna.batangbaler.net

i really wanna thank Kid for this…. super…..and to a lot of people who in one way or another get to lurk…or made silip through a link at BB.

akaw talaga naman oo!!
