Here you can post comments,latest news and world known achievements in all categories come sports or anything of our kababayans.

I just watched the Energy Globe 2003 awards on tv and which took place here in Austria ,and the Philippines won the FIRST PRIZE for sustainable energy under category fire.The second was Belgium for the low-cost solar thermal power plant.Third was Denmark for their offshore wind fan or "Horns Rev".

Solar homes in the Philippines

Under the guidance of the PNOC Solar Home Systems Distribution Project, run by the Philippine National Oil Company, within 5 years 15,100 off-grid photovoltaic systems will be installed in rural areas in the Philippines. The solar home System packages include also one black and white TV and a radio. Providing households with electricity has many positive effects. The economy is strengthened. Air, water and soil pollution are reduced. Literacy and life quality are improved, and better lighting makes reading and working easier. Health problems are reduced as people inhale less toxic fumes from kerosene lamps. And last but not least there is a better access to information from TVs and radios. By May 2003 about 15000 Solar home packages were installed, monthly about 100-200 units are set up. To make the Solar Home Systems available and affordable to the rural people a community based credit program was set up to finance the costs through co-operative initiatives.

Young Cebuano tops
international exam
By Cebu Daily News

A YOUNG Cebuano put the Philippines again on the world map when he topped the prestigious Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examination given in May this year in Florida.

Duke M. Bajenting, 22, topped 9,400 other examinees from 78 countries to become the first Filipino to receive the international William S. Smith Gold Medal Award.

Bajenting finished his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, summa cum laude, from the University of the Philippines-Diliman in 2003. In the same year, he took and topped the board examination for certified public accountants.

The CIA designation is the recognized professional credential for internal auditors worldwide. More than 47,000 professionals have been certified since the inception of the program in August 1974.

Duke, who now works for Procter and Gamble as its regional auditor covering several countries in Asia, is the eldest son of Rey and Elizabeth Bajenting, and grandson of the late veteran newsman Clod K. Bajenting. He is a humble and jolly kuya to his siblings Ace, Contessa, Reyna and Quennie.

While at UP, Duke was a consistent scholar and became the editor in chief of the UP Collegian.

He completed his secondary education valedictorian at the Holy Rosary School in Pardo, Cebu City, and was chosen one of the 10 Most Outstanding High School Students of Cebu by Kiwanis Cebu Chapter and Rhine Marketing.

His other academic achievements include: Most Outstanding Graduate, male category, awarded by UP Alumni Association; delegate, Singapore Investment Foundation under the ASEAN cultural exchange program; chosen outstanding accounting student of the Philippines by Gestetner, Philippines; recipient of Student Excellence Award of the Procter and Gamble Philippines; and Leadership awardee, UP Diliman, BSBAA Batch 2003.

The teary-eyed Elena Sulpico, who turned 84 on Aug. 18, met his son at the Iloilo City airport. His homecoming was the best birthday gift for her.

Elena said she was happy and felt proud that her now celebrity son finally came home.

Sulpico was also met by Iloilo Gov. Niel Tupas Sr., Tourism regional director Edwin Trompeta, Leganes town mayor Adolf Jaen and the taxi driver?s close friends and relatives.

Filipino idol By Patricia Chanco Evangelista

I went to London last May to represent the Philippines in the International Public Speaking Competition. I gave a speech that celebrated the Filipino identity, telling the world that being Filipino is something that must never be denied.

When I competed in the local eliminations, they gave us the topic "A Borderless World." It was inevitable, at least for me, to speak about the Filipino Diaspora. It?s true, I was out to win, and I used a feeling that is very much alive in the Philippines today: condemnation.

We have a family friend who used to be close to us. She and her family sent all their kids to America ? to a better life, a better future. It hurt to have them leave, but people are entitled to their choices. They came back a couple of years ago. They invited us to dinner, and so there we were in their living room, along with their brand-new furniture and 50-inch flat-screen TV. The adults started talking about the Philippines ? at least our old friend did. She said that she is glad, so glad, that her children have been saved from this God-awful country of ours. A country with awful politics, awful places, awful traffic, awful, awful people.

I?m a Filipino. I?m one of those "awful" people. And I was outraged. I didn?t say anything then. What could I say? But when the competition gave me the platform to speak about a borderless world, I spoke ? I said everything I wished I said years ago. I was like a madman on a soapbox, I condemned the Filipinos who chose to leave, said they deserved to be pushed down the road to hell on a handcart. Traitors and turncoats, I called them.

And I won ? obviously not because of content. Sabi ko nga, angas, kaya minsan. Sometimes confidence can save the day. I still blush when I remember what happened. In London, I didn?t win on my own. I was lucky enough to be under the tutelage of some of the best minds in the country. Great writers like Krip Yuson, Gemino Abad, Butch Dalisay, Boo Chanco and Ed Maranan, along with former ambassador Ed Espiritu took me under their wing. They never told me what to do or say ? I would never have said what I did in the finals if I didn?t reach that conclusion on my own. They asked me questions, listened to what I said, and opened my eyes to a less narrow and more holistic perspective.

I almost didn?t go to London. Money is tight, and asking for government support at a time like this is difficult, close to impossible. However, it is a wonderful thing to have corporations such as Shell Philippines who believe in giving back to the country. They sent me to London with a ticket, a smile and a "good luck." Like I said, I was lucky. With the support of so many people, family, friends and the grace of God, I won. Hey, I?m Filipino.

I went home with cameras at my face and questions like: "How does it feel to put the Philippines on the map?" I was 18, and I have to admit, I was thrilled. I?m not the first Filipino to win, and I?m not going to be the last. But unlike a lot of winners, I have something else going for me. My mentors and relatives are some of the most prolific writers in the country, and they made **** sure people knew what I did. In other words, I have built-in publicity. Cool, huh?

The other day, I was reading the paper and found the story of an 11-year-old girl named Faye. It was a paid ad by Bread of Life Ministries. "Unknown to her countrymen, this 11-year-old girl brought honor to the Philippines. She represented the country two weeks ago in the Intercontinental Science Quiz Net in Australia. Out of 57 countries represented, Faye garnered first place for the Philippines. Germany came in second, the United States came third."

Faye?s story is an extraordinary one. Given financial constraints, especially since her mother was raising Faye on her own, they went to various congressmen for aid. Only one was willing to help them ? in exchange for the senator taking credit for the child?s former achievements (and there were many). Her mother did what any self-respecting mother would have ? she refused.

Mother and daughter went to Australia by dint of their own savings. They collected her "Best in Physics" award in Brisbane and moved on to Sydney for the Quiz. They were aided by none other than a "kind" Filipina on the plane, who very kindly stole their luggage, passports and plane tickets, leaving the pair with carry-on luggage. They sold their clothes for food, and begged for help from Filipino officials. They were given an overnight stay in a hotel, but no more. They had to check out the next day, and with no money for transportation, they walked the two kilometers to the tournament site.

They were shocked by the sight that faced them. Each competitor had his own cheering squad, a band and a flag. Young Faye had no one other than her mother. In the final round, Faye was the only Asian left competing ? and was cheered on to victory by her fellow Asians ? the Japanese. It was a Japanese diplomat who helped them secure temporary passports, with the prize money only sufficient to bring them back home.

It is tempting to blame everything on a country that claims it is looking for heroes and does not acknowledge them. The article draws parallels to Jasmine Trias? victory?why give the Hawaiian winner of American Idol the red carpet to Malaca?ang, when a homegrown 11-year-old girl went through hell and high water to bring honor to the country?

After the Southeast Asian Games, there was no one, not a single member of the National Sports Commission to receive our athletes. True, they did not win ? but they faced their competitors with a dignity and a skill that befit Filipinos. They too represented the country. It is tempting to revert back to the old Filipino condemnation. Awful politicians, awful government and awful people. But it would not be fair. Faye herself said, in spite of everything, "let us love our nation, for no one else will." Brave girl that.

I was lucky to be at the right time and the right place, to have the support of so many people, bringing me the opportunities I have today. Some people are not so lucky. I do not deny Jasmine Trias? moment in the sun. Her talent is as real as anyone else?s and we Filipinos love the glitz and glamour of spotlights and cameras. Yet her success has drawn a stark contrast to those who have succeeded yet were not recognized. Butch Jimenez, one of the greatest speakers I have heard and another of those people who see the value of giving to the country, gave a speech to the graduates of UP Diliman. He said that there?s something better than having a vision: it?s having a cause.

I found my cause. I was lucky to get the attention. I am grateful for the recognition. I am honored by the chance to speak my mind and to influence people. I cannot say that enough. Helping this one girl, and others like her will be my cause. It is disgraceful for such victory to go unnoticed. One article may not make a difference, but it?s a step.

For all those times that no one said it, I say this now.

Faye, congratulations! You did the country proud.

Faye, congratulations! You did the country proud.Great article and thank you for posting it here. It is quite refreshing to know that we have talents AND MOST SPECIALY KIND HEARTS, among our countrymen (women).

I do want to make a comment. While it may dampen the spirit of this article, it thought it fitting to say it here. I am a little chafed by the mention of Jasmine Trias? treatment. The criticism, of course, is valid. However, I find it out of line. For a person of Patricia?s intellect and brilliance, it must be assumed that she knows the reason for Jasmine?s special treatment. She is in a field of national attention, of worldwide media coverage. Her popularity should not surprise anyone.
In moments like this we should be proud, with no strings attached. Something sad that I have found among Filipinos is a primal trait of demeaning others to make us look better. Masyado tayong magaling manumbat sa kapwa natin. Hindi tayo halos makagawa ng ano bang bagay na hindi tayo aasa ng kapalit sa ating ginagawa. Para sa ?kin-NAPAKASAMANG UGALI!!!

It would be totally distasteful if I will conclude this note with a negative tone. Here again, I stress, I hail for your victory Patricia. We thank you for bringing us Faye?s story and we?re glad to pay homage to our sister Faye. As a Filipino, I would like to express my personal sorrow and regrets for her and others? undeserving treatment of our officials and the public at large. Hoping that it?s not too late to say WE?RE VERY PROUD OF YOU!!!!!

Misplaced Priorities can Mislead a Nation

"He who can take no interest in what is small will take false interest in
what is great." John Ruskin


Jasmine Trias visited the Philippines very recently. Everyone was agog waiting to welcome her. The excitement was remarkable as the media and many of our "kababayans"flocked to the airport to see her. This scenario is typical of Filipinos. Sadly, it reflects our country's misplaced priorities.

Contest of the Mind.

Another young girl came back to the country just a couple of weeks ago. Her name is Faye (not her real name for very sensitive reasons). Unknown to her countrymen, this eleven year old girl brought honor to the Philippines. She represented the country in the Intercontinental Science Quiz Net in Australia. Out of 57 countries represented, Faye garnered First Place for the Philippines. Germany came in second while the United States came in third.

In start contrast to the hooplah extended to Jasmine Trias, Faye's arrival did not make any noise. Not a peep. In an earlier competition, "Mathematics for the Young Asians" in Indonesia, Faye also came out in the Top Five. But just like the Australian event, this feat did not receive any recognition in our country at all. Our interests seem to be set on other "priorities." We are more interested in promoting celebrity guests instead of educational and intellectual pursuits. Indirectly and quite obviously we are teaching our children that development of the external image takes priority over educational achievement.


Faye's story is inspiring. She comes from a broken family. Her father falsely claimed that he was unmarried when he married her mom. When her mom found out, she decided to raise up her daughter alone. Despite the difficulty, Faye in no way used it as an excuse for complacency in her studies. In grade school, she was a consistent honor student. She took every academic requirement as a challenge. And she delivered. At one time, she submitted a project thesis in Australia that won "The Best Physics and Science Award". The award qualified the Philippines to be one of the top 10 countries that would compete in Australia, among the 57 countries that joined.

Considering her family's financial constraints, she and her mom asked help from our government for their trip to Australia to claim the "Best Physics" award and to join the Science competition. They saw this challenge as a rare opportunity offered to Faye and her country, considering that only two Asian countries qualified - Japan and the Philippines. Unfortunately, our government had other priorities.

Mother and daughter then tried to ask help from individual senators and congressmen. All turned them down except for one who was willing to help, on condition that Faye should give public credit to the senator for supporting her even int the earlier competitions she joined. Out of integrity, the mother could not accede to this arrangement. Thus no outside help was found.

Faced with this situation, Faye and her mom took out all their savings and went out of their way to secure by themselves the additional finances needed. The only driving force behind them was their desire to give honor to God and to the Philippines.

With the little resources they had, they went to Australia on September 17, 2004 for the competition. They claimed the trophy and cash award for the "Best Physics" thesis Faye submitted in Sidney and then flew to Brisbane fo the quiz competition.

No kababayan welcomed them in Australia except for a kind Filipina they met in the plane who assisted them. As they were checking in at a hotel, the "kind" Filipina who volunteered to help them disappeared taking with her Faye's and her mother's bags, passports, and plane tickets. At that point, they literally had nothing left except for the few pieces of clothes and their faith in God. They had to sell the extra clothes left to be able to buy food.

In need once again, they sought help from some of the Filipino officials in Australia but to no avail. Oddly, the Filipino officials there were too busy with other priorities, not minding to help a young girl and a mother who had no other desire but to bring honor to our country.

Given a budget for only a one night stay at the hotel, mother and daughter had to check out the following day. Leaving their luggage on deposit and without money for transportation fare, they decided to walk two kilometers to the competition venue on their native Filipino costumes.

If walking a two kilometer distance was bad enough, how much more would be walking the distance on their native costume along the highways of Australia!


Upon arrival at the competition site, Faye and her mom were very surprised when they discovered that the delegates from each of the other countries were well supported by a band, a cheering squad, and a flag, while Faye only had her mother and the anxiety of lost passports and plane tickets. Worse, representatives of each country were required to decorate their booths.

With only the three-piece costume they had on, Faye and her mom were even more surprised when the organizing committee awarded their booth as "The Most Creative" booth.

In the early part of the competition, Japan, Braziland Spain were eliminated. As the only Asian country left to compete against six Western nations, the Philippines was cheered on by Japan. Faye was encouraged by her Japanese cheering squad, but in her heart, how she wished that she had her own countrymen to cheer her on.


When Faye finally won first place and Philippines national anthem was being played, she prayed silently thanking God for making her a Filipina. Despite all the painful experiences she had with her country, her priorities did not waver. A Japanes diplomat was the one who helped Faye and her mom to secure temporary pass so they could return to the Philippines. The money they won was just enough for their fare back home and their temporary passport. When Faye was relating this story before a crowd, she said, "Let us love our nation, for nobody else will."


Faye did not allow her painful experiences to tear down her loyalty to her country. She is not a celebrity but a servant out to serve her fellow Filipino.


A Small Way to Greatness.Our concept of leadership in this country is pitifully skewed. We mistakenly think that leadership is about "lording" it over other people. Christ corrected this distorted thinking when he said, "You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you, instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all - Mark 10:42-44

Sadly, we are far from the precept of this truth. It is no surprise then that we have a dearth of real leaders in this country-leaders who would set the nation's interests above their own. In the same way, our concept of citizenship is damaged. Those seeking for social good for themselves are never willing to grant the same good to others. Hence it is common for us hear stories of Filipinos who take advantage of their fellow citizens. We want to be served, but we are unwilling to serve.

We dream of becoming like Jasmine Trias. We want our children to be like her. We would rather spend on things that would make us look good instead of things that would make us grow in character. We prefer stardom glitter over service-oriented endeavors.

Quite the contrary, Faye spend sleepless nights studying to win the competition because she knows her priorities. Unlike Jasmine Trias, Faye did not receive a hero's welcome when she cam back, but, young as she is, she keeps calling on Filipinos to love the Philippines because every Filipino is a valuable gift of God.

Life, really is not a matter of intelligence but a matter of setting our priorities right. The question is, what's our focus on "grand" things that make us superficial or on simple things that lead us to greatness?

Faye's story reminds us all to look within ourselves. This eleven year old girl could have complained to the media, but she did not. She went out of her own small way to bring greatness to this land.

Right priorities grant us wisdom. When properly set, priorities point us out the right people we need to invest in, the right use of our energy, the right resources to draw from, and the right endeavors to support.

From the words of Faye's mother, " We all wanted to win, but success is not measured through by merely winning. It is measured through our hearts, if it is truly attuned with God all the time. It is all that really matters for we have only an Audience of One. Whatever we have achieved, big or small, remember one thing: it is for God and God alone. The King of the Kingdom of a higher world."

First, it is but proper that we hail for Faye and thank her for the grace and glory that she has brought home. We deeply regret that we the people, were not able to share this momentous occasion with her.

Jasmine Trias is my town mate. I watched her sing in the competition only at the moment when she won it fairly. The incident where the Hawaiians voted for her when she clearly did not deserve it, I stopped watching it. In my mind, she? had lost and when she did not ?honorably? refused the position, I did not want to do anything with her anymore. That be said, she no longer played any part in my patriotic consciousness.

BUT why do I get annoyed by this story? This story carries some very valid arguments At the same time carries with it unfair characterizations of Filipinos. It is true that our officials are insensitive and self-centered. It is true that our leaders are often unreliable. But such characterization can not and should not be extended to the Filipinos at large. Don?t you think that if Faye?s mother made some effort to approach the ?public? when she failed with our leaders, they might have gotten a different reception?. I, for one, would have gladly given her support. And the fact this letter got so much sympathy from the public is testament to the support the public would have given them. We are so dearly thirsty for good people. If the public had known Faye and her accomplishments, there might a much more different outcome of their flight. One more thing, why did you not name names? Who are those officials that disappointed us? Don?t you think this is something that the public deserve to know, particularly that official WHO ONLY WANTED TO SUPPORT YOU IF YOU WILL GIVE HIM THE CREDITS? This is appalling. And the public should know who he/she is.

I assume that this is Patricia who brought us this story and we sincerely thank her for it. However, I am annoyed by use of comparison. Faye, herself, displayed courage, dignity, good morals and patriotism. Patricia, you should not destroy that image she so wanted to portray. :messenger3:

True enough. If you believe the story. There are a few hoaxes of fame and degredation, selfishness and such. The best thing to do now, is to believe there is a lesson from all these. A parable of sort. SOme say this was the work of 'Bread for life Ministries' or such group.

The story is uplifting. The story is an excellent magnet for bleeding hearts. The story is just that, a story. It is a good story. A story of faith and hope.

With this, I declare - I will not turn my back on any in need if I could help.

Jasmine Trias visited the Philippines very recently. Everyone was agog waiting to welcome her. The excitement was remarkable as the media and many of our "kababayans"flocked to the airport to see her. This scenario is typical of Filipinos. Sadly, it reflects our country's misplaced priorities.

Contest of the Mind.

Another young girl came back to the country just a couple of weeks ago. Her name is Faye (not her real name for very sensitive reasons). Unknown to her countrymen, this eleven year old girl brought honor to the Philippines. She represented the country in the Intercontinental Science Quiz Net in Australia. Out of 57 countries represented, Faye garnered First Place for the Philippines. Germany came in second while the United States came in third.

In start contrast to the hooplah extended to Jasmine Trias, Faye's arrival did not make any noise. Not a peep. In an earlier competition, "Mathematics for the Young Asians" in Indonesia, Faye also came out in the Top Five. But just like the Australian event, this feat did not receive any recognition in our country at all. Our interests seem to be set on other "priorities." We are more interested in promoting celebrity guests instead of educational and intellectual pursuits. Indirectly and quite obviously we are teaching our children that development of the external image takes priority over educational achievement.


Faye's story is inspiring. She comes from a broken family. Her father falsely claimed that he was unmarried when he married her mom. When her mom found out, she decided to raise up her daughter alone. Despite the difficulty, Faye in no way used it as an excuse for complacency in her studies. In grade school, she was a consistent honor student. She took every academic requirement as a challenge. And she delivered. At one time, she submitted a project thesis in Australia that won "The Best Physics and Science Award". The award qualified the Philippines to be one of the top 10 countries that would compete in Australia, among the 57 countries that joined.

Considering her family's financial constraints, she and her mom asked help from our government for their trip to Australia to claim the "Best Physics" award and to join the Science competition. They saw this challenge as a rare opportunity offered to Faye and her country, considering that only two Asian countries qualified - Japan and the Philippines. Unfortunately, our government had other priorities.

Mother and daughter then tried to ask help from individual senators and congressmen. All turned them down except for one who was willing to help, on condition that Faye should give public credit to the senator for supporting her even int the earlier competitions she joined. Out of integrity, the mother could not accede to this arrangement. Thus no outside help was found.

Faced with this situation, Faye and her mom took out all their savings and went out of their way to secure by themselves the additional finances needed. The only driving force behind them was their desire to give honor to God and to the Philippines.

With the little resources they had, they went to Australia on September 17, 2004 for the competition. They claimed the trophy and cash award for the "Best Physics" thesis Faye submitted in Sidney and then flew to Brisbane fo the quiz competition.

No kababayan welcomed them in Australia except for a kind Filipina they met in the plane who assisted them. As they were checking in at a hotel, the "kind" Filipina who volunteered to help them disappeared taking with her Faye's and her mother's bags, passports, and plane tickets. At that point, they literally had nothing left except for the few pieces of clothes and their faith in God. They had to sell the extra clothes left to be able to buy food.

In need once again, they sought help from some of the Filipino officials in Australia but to no avail. Oddly, the Filipino officials there were too busy with other priorities, not minding to help a young girl and a mother who had no other desire but to bring honor to our country.

Given a budget for only a one night stay at the hotel, mother and daughter had to check out the following day. Leaving their luggage on deposit and without money for transportation fare, they decided to walk two kilometers to the competition venue on their native Filipino costumes.

If walking a two kilometer distance was bad enough, how much more would be walking the distance on their native costume along the highways of Australia!


Upon arrival at the competition site, Faye and her mom were very surprised when they discovered that the delegates from each of the other countries were well supported by a band, a cheering squad, and a flag, while Faye only had her mother and the anxiety of lost passports and plane tickets. Worse, representatives of each country were required to decorate their booths.

With only the three-piece costume they had on, Faye and her mom were even more surprised when the organizing committee awarded their booth as "The Most Creative" booth.

In the early part of the competition, Japan, Braziland Spain were eliminated. As the only Asian country left to compete against six Western nations, the Philippines was cheered on by Japan. Faye was encouraged by her Japanese cheering squad, but in her heart, how she wished that she had her own countrymen to cheer her on.


When Faye finally won first place and Philippines national anthem was being played, she prayed silently thanking God for making her a Filipina. Despite all the painful experiences she had with her country, her priorities did not waver. A Japanes diplomat was the one who helped Faye and her mom to secure temporary pass so they could return to the Philippines. The money they won was just enough for their fare back home and their temporary passport. When Faye was relating this story before a crowd, she said, "Let us love our nation, for nobody else will."


Faye did not allow her painful experiences to tear down her loyalty to her country. She is not a celebrity but a servant out to serve her fellow Filipino.


A Small Way to Greatness.Our concept of leadership in this country is pitifully skewed. We mistakenly think that leadership is about "lording" it over other people. Christ corrected this distorted thinking when he said, "You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you, instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all - Mark 10:42-44

Sadly, we are far from the precept of this truth. It is no surprise then that we have a dearth of real leaders in this country-leaders who would set the nation's interests above their own. In the same way, our concept of citizenship is damaged. Those seeking for social good for themselves are never willing to grant the same good to others. Hence it is common for us hear stories of Filipinos who take advantage of their fellow citizens. We want to be served, but we are unwilling to serve.

We dream of becoming like Jasmine Trias. We want our children to be like her. We would rather spend on things that would make us look good instead of things that would make us grow in character. We prefer stardom glitter over service-oriented endeavors.

Quite the contrary, Faye spend sleepless nights studying to win the competition because she knows her priorities. Unlike Jasmine Trias, Faye did not receive a hero's welcome when she cam back, but, young as she is, she keeps calling on Filipinos to love the Philippines because every Filipino is a valuable gift of God.

Life, really is not a matter of intelligence but a matter of setting our priorities right. The question is, what's our focus on "grand" things that make us superficial or on simple things that lead us to greatness?

Faye's story reminds us all to look within ourselves. This eleven year old girl could have complained to the media, but she did not. She went out of her own small way to bring greatness to this land.

Right priorities grant us wisdom. When properly set, priorities point us out the right people we need to invest in, the right use of our energy, the right resources to draw from, and the right endeavors to support.

From the words of Faye's mother, " We all wanted to win, but success is not measured through by merely winning. It is measured through our hearts, if it is truly attuned with God all the time. It is all that really matters for we have only an Audience of One. Whatever we have achieved, big or small, remember one thing: it is for God and God alone. The King of the Kingdom of a higher world."

True enough. If you believe the story. There are a few hoaxes of fame and degredation, selfishness and such. The best thing to do now, is to believe there is a lesson from all these. A parable of sort. SOme say this was the work of "Bread for life Ministries" or such group.
The story is uplifting. The story is an excellent magnet for bleeding hearts. The story is just that, a story. It is a good story. A story of faith and hope.

With this, I declare - I will not turn my back on any in need if I could help.I believe this is a made up story by the Bread of Life Ministries" which is meant to stir our minds into a radical change of hearts. The story is good, including the well orchestrated interviews and blogs and what not - and well, believable.

Questions:
Whys is it that the Australian Embassy in Manila told the Inquirer that they had no knowledge of Faye's and her mother's experience in Australia, including her winning the contest in Brisbane.

Why is it that this so called ?Intercontinental Science Quiz Net" is not known in Australia - it does not exist.

Why is it that no one could locate the hotel where they left their belongings a deposit for their night stay. Did they ever get them back?.

Why is it that no one can locate the Japanese diplomat who helped them secure temporary passes to return home? OR why is it that the diplomat , amidst all these presumptions and assumtions, did not come forward to validate the story?

I am not one to put a good book down, but I think I know enough fiction from truth. This story has all the trappaings and wrappings of a good uplifting and motivational story, ie, fiction.

FAYE'S brief fling with fame ended yesterday. And it ended with an apology no less from her church, which said her story of victory in Brisbane was not true.

Even earlier, the Department of Science and Technology also shot down her claim when the Inquirer began probing Faye's seemingly moving story.

And how about the media people who interviewed them? Sabagay, kahit na ang pinakamagaling na newscaster ng U.S.A ay nagkakamali, how much more for the Filipinos na gustong mauna sa pagpapalabas ng good news.

Even earlier, the Department of Science and Technology also shot down her claim when the Inquirer began probing Faye's seemingly moving story. Before I posted my first reply to this news, I already researched whether this news was truth or fiction. In my second, I raised the questions brought forward by the Inquirer and other such news media. It was already identified that the BOLM (Bread of Life Ministries) originated this hoax - not as much to lie, but to present a story of how the priorities of the people and in the whole, the government, could be misplaced. We can all learn from this story. Sometimes, we cannot look into ourselves without being face to face with the grim reality that somehow our efforts to better ourselves are at the expense of the less fortunate. And when they come out victorious, we are all in shock, but most of all ashamed that we did not do more for them. Ahhhh, the parable.......

MABUTI at nakita na habang maaga pa ang kulay ng isang junior officer ng Philippine Army. Kung maging general na siya baka maging katulad pa siya ni Major Gen. Carlos Garcia na maraming kasong kinakaharap dahil sa pangungulimbat.

Nahuli sa akto si Second Lt. Rolly Joaquin, 21, isang student officer na nagtapos sa Philippine Military Academy (PMA) na tinatanggal ang 50-cent discount tag ng isang CD at idinikit iyon sa ibang CD na may halagang $12. Hindi alam ni Joaquin na mayroong surveillance camera at kitang-kita ang kanyang ginawa. Si Joaquin ay kumukuha ng officer training course sa Fort Benning, Georgia. Nagtapos siya sa PMA noong nakaraang Marso at valedictorian ng Maliyab Class 2004. Marami siyang tinanggap na award. Si President Arroyo pa ang nagkaloob ng PGMA award kay Joaquin.

Sayang! Gumastos na ang taumbayan kay Joaquin nang siya ay kadete pa lamang sa PMA at ganyan lang pala ang kanyang kahahatungan. Mabait naman daw at mapagmahal si Joaquin ayon sa kanyang mga magulang at kapatid. Sinabi ni Joaquin sa kanyang talumpati noong graduation na hindi masasayang ang milyong pisong inilaan ng gobyerno sa bawat kadete ng PMA. Hindi mapupunta sa wala ang nagastos ng taumbayan. Taliwas yata ang ginawa ni Joaquin na sa $12 ay natukso na.

Sabagay maganda rin namang habang maaga ay nabuking si Joaquin sapagkat kapag mataas na ang posisyon niya sa military, halimbawa?y maging katulad ni Maj. Gen. Garcia, baka mas lalong malaking problema ang kaharapin. Kahiya-hiya kung ganyan ang mangyayari.

Nakapanghihinayang ang nangyari kay Joaquin na ipinagmalaki pa naman ng PMA subalit magdudulot lamang pala ng kahihiyan. Dahil lamang sa $12 ay ipinagpalit ang karangalan. Sana?y maging aral sa iba pang kadete ng PMA ang nangyari kay Joaquin o mas maganda na pati ang nangyari kay Maj. Gen. Garcia ay magdulot din ng aral. Kakahiya kung patuloy na mahuhulog sa kumunoy ng kontrobersiya ang PMA. Dahil sa mga kontrobersiyang ito, ang buong PMA ang apektado. Ang kasalanan ng isa o dalawa ay putik na nakakulapol sa uniporme at mahirap na itong matanggal. Nakadikit na. Hindi nga ba?t nang sumingaw ang kontrobersiya kay Garcia, tinawag nang Philippine Millionaires Academy ang PMA? Maraming nagpapayaman dahil sa pangungulimbat...

Meron po ba kayong balita tungkol sa Pinoy na naka imbento ng kotse na tumatakbo na gamit ay tubig at hindi gasolina?

I'm sure narinig nyo na yan, at napanood sa TV. Sya mismo nakita ko sa Makati, nakasakay sa toyota corolla, tapos meron karatula na 'this car runs on water'.

Pero bakit hindi sya sumisikat? Pinakita nya mismo, demonstrate nya kay Mr. Noli de Castro sa MGB at kita naman na walang daya.

Sa tingin ko, meron ba kagagawan ang OPEC para hindi masyado bigyan ng pansin ang achievement na to, dahil sigurado, magiging wala na silang pakinabang pag kumalat ang technology na ito.

Natatakot rin ako sa nag imbento ng technology na ito, dahil baka sya ay ipa assasinate ng mga tao na nakikinabang sa pagbebenta ng oil.
