In a strange but welcome turn of events, KABATAAN Partylist (ang pinaka-labs nakabataanpartylist Partylist ng Datu’s, hehe) has now produced the first ever youth sector representative to the Philippine Congress. As of today, Mong Palatino is now the Hon. Congressman Raymond Palatino!

Not only did the Supreme Court decision to grant the 32 additional Partylist seats result in an increase for the progressive bloc’s numbers in Congress; now the administration’s allies in the Lower House will have no other rational choice but to accept the inevitability of defeat for Charter Change.

Now, if we only had more congressmen of the rational kind to begin with. 😈

Have you seen TULARAWAN 02?

tularawan02Sometime mid-Feb, Chris Linag, a pro photographer friend of mine, emailed me regarding a photo project he was cooking up. His plan was to ask various artists to write companion pieces for a series of photographs he planned to exhibit exclusively online.

The first picture in the series was uploaded just earlier this month, and the accompanying poem (a haiku) was written by my old school ’90s music compatriot, Dong Abay, bokalistang supremo ng YANO. (Kaunting FYI lang ito para sa inyong mga nagbabasa na either walang alam sa mga pinaggagawa ng mga tulad namin ni Dong nung panahong yun or mga egg at sperm cells pa lang nung dekada nobenta!)


The second photo was just uploaded today, and the companion piece was written by yours truly. I must say that the material I contributed was a first for me in so far as writing poetry is concerned. Whenever I dabble in the craft, I normally write in English – and in free verse. I use Filipino almost exclusively in song lyrics, and the meter and rhyme considerations I employ in songwriting are definitely different; more structured, of course, mainly because of the limitations that the kind of music Datu’s plays imposes on my writing style.

Anyway, as much as I would love to post the picture here (because I was really blown away by the beauty of it), I’d much rather that you see the work in Chris Linag’s Flickr site. His exhibit is still a work in progress, so expect to see more collaborations as the days progress.

Thanks for the honor, Chris! Sobrang ganda ng mga kuha mo!



If the piece I wrote for Chris “feels” like a song, that’s because it will be. I do plan to set music to it for a future project with Datu’s.

UPLB Feb Fair 2009! \m/oo\m/

Date: February 13, 2009

Start: 6:00 pm

Venue: UPLB Freedom Park

WALANG ENTRANCE FEE dito at mas maraming visual treats kasi mas masigasig gumawa ng mga booths ang mga UPLB orgs dahil na rin sa nakagawiang booth design competition tuwing Feb Fair.

Sa mga nagbabalak ng date ngayong Valentine’s Day, the UPLB campus is the perfect weekend getaway, whether you’re a romantic couple or just plain horny one-nighters. Meron pang drugstore sa may crossing papasok ng campus so you don’t even have to bring contraceptives all the way from Manila!

What a deal!!!
