I still can’t believe it. DEMOCRACY in our country is lost.

So many voters in several areas were not able to vote because of so many Voters Counting Machines which were so defective. Yet, Comelec didn’t even have the guts to replace or repair them.

You won’t believe this too. In two hours, unofficial counts had marcos leading by the millions, obviously, the results were pre-programmed. SD cards could be changed, right? Some say it was even faster than the US. With all the commissioners appointed by duterte from Davao and with chinese businessman Dennis Uy providing all the election paraphernalia ( a close ally of duterte), RIGGING IS A DONE DEAL. Marcos VP is the daughter of duterte.

I am not bitter but sad. People had a glimpse of a better opportunity for change but they chose to stay in the dark.

LORD, I need a hug🙏🙏🙏🙏

A very important event that most democratic-loving Filipinos waited with bated breath. The previous six years made being one not proud of his/her birthplace – extra-judicial killings, grave corruptìon, economy sinking fast, a strongman for a leader, lies, broken promises, curses and swearing and what have you. And most of all allegiance to china.

Now we’ve found the most-qualified candidate for the presidency in the person of VP LENI ROBREDO.

The polling precincts opened at 6 am. I was there before 6 am and I was number 4 in line at our own precinct. It is an advantage for us subdivision owners that Election is held at our multi-purpose hall exclusive to us. I was done at 6:30 am. It was literally peaceful so far.

Let VP LENI, SEN. KIKO and their slate win.

Let freedom-loving Filipinos win. Let us WIN THIS TIME LORD🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭💕💕💕🙏🙏🙏

Gosh, I could not believe I haven ‘t blogged for a week. Though sometimes, I have lots of things to share, I am more focused on social media.

It is the last leg of the campaign period then we’ll have our election on Monday. I keep praying it would be honest and clean but knowing how the Comelec works, I have my reservations. Back in 2019, tbere was a seven-hour glitch which they haven’t explained until now. All the candidates of Duterte in the Senate won, even those who were not that much qualified compared to the opposition. They are now mere ‘decorations’ on the Senate floor. People say that china was involved.

I need not elaborate on how the campaign trail is doing. We call ourselves kakampink. Pink is the color of hope, everytime there are scheduled pink rallies in different provinces, people come by the thousands. There is this Pulse Asia who conducts surveys and release them now and then but it is so biased in favor of marcos dayunior. They usually have 2,400 respondents but not all sectors are represented. They are trying mind-conditioning on people gullible enough to believe that Marcos, Jr. is leading. He is not, he has money to pay for the false survey. Some people actually call it false asia. There is a similar survey by Google Trends and Leni/Kiko tandem is very much far ahead.

#Leni/Kiko for the win!

Holy Week started yesterday which was Palm Sunday. I just attended mass online because I have cough, it might trigger more unhealthy days mingling with lots of people. Although things seem to have gone back to normal with minimal infections of Covid, we still wear face masks when we go out.

Josef is working from home the whole week so I’ll probably have that much needed hair trim one of these days. They have gone back to the office the past days but there are times that WFH is scheduled like this week.

It’s sad, I somehow lost my mews in blogging. I got lazy visiting WordPress the past days. Life is quiet. Couldn’t think some worthy content for my blog. Sometimes I think, a blogger is only good as her last post. Sad to say, I lost some of my regular commenters and visitors. I’ll be lucky if I get 100 views a day nowadays. I don’t mind really but it is just a little disappointing.

I am more active now on social media, it’s only about a month now before our national election. There are still red-tagging and many fake news from the other camp. I’m glad though that so many people prefer VP LENI and her slate. Last April 9, they have the biggest rally ever with an estimated 220,000 people attending in Pampanga and to think ex-pres. Arroyo promised thousands for dayunior but they postponed their scheduled rally in the same venue. Afraid? I think they are really getting afraid that VP LENI and Sen. KIKO will win.

This is a drone shot in the Pampanga rally.

I believe that given two choices of electing between a liar and a tax evader who has nothing to show except his name and a busy Vice-President, I will go for the latter. She initiates and the Filipino people love her.

Hoping we will win this fight. The Philippines is going down the drain and we need to save it. My vote is for the future of my grandson. We don’t need more trillions to add to the Philippines’ debt. That was through the six years of the duterte presidency.

There was another rally yesterday for VP LENI and Sen. KIKO which they called PASIGLABAN. It was held at the financial district of Pasig City. They have almost covered several towns and cities over the archipelago from North to South. We still have 49 days to go before May 9.

Bacolod garnered 86,000 attendees last week, people of all ages. Some preferred to walk because bus services were cancelled by those partial to Marcos. Will call him dayunior in my next paragraphs. Always at the start of her speech, VP LENI would read all these placards that her eyes can reach. I can’t forget this, there was this guy holding a placard saying that he miss the feel of a hug from a mother. Without hesitation, VP LENI called him up the stage and hugged him. In Cavite City, she was almost late going to the venue because the governor there closed the roads so there was traffic. She and her staff asked some motorcycle drivers if they could hitch a ride. In Zamboanga, she came by a banca. You would really appreciate that she is game to everything as long as she can reach the people waiting for her.

I culled some photos of the event yesterday from my friends’ posts who were there before 12pm even if the program was set at 4:30pm. They braved the rain and the heat.

So far Pasig has the most number of rallyists at 137,000.

It is not just a campaign now, it has become a movement.
Look at their faces. The youth is awake.
The crowd is long. Some people booked hotel rooms nearby so they could attend the rally.
THE BEST FOR THE JOB IS A WOMAN…VP LENI!

I saw several pictures of dayunior’s rallies, they could not even garner a 10th of LENI’s in one place. Funny how they do not allow drone shots because you can clearly see the pathetic number of crowd. Some even photoshopped hundreds of sacks of onion (sibuyas) making it appear that they are human heads attending the rallies. THEY LIVE IN LIES. They deny themselves of a good governance because of loyalty to one man.

There is this Pulse Asia survey (we call it the FALSE ASIA) they conducted late December and it showed a more than 50% for dayunior and 16% of Leni out of, you guess it, 2,400 people surveyed. They released it after Leni’s successful rallies. Mind-conditioning if I may say. And to think they give those meager attendees free food and 500 per head. Why would you sell your soul by a pittance? Sad isn’t it😒😏🤔

VP LENI AND SEN. KIKO’s rallies are funded by the people. Their shouts of HINDI KAMI BAYARAN reverberate throughout the land.

WAY TO GO VP LENI AND SEN. KIKO. Ipapanalo natin eto.

I almost forgot to mention, those music artists groups, actors and actresses gave their time for free for VP Leni.

Hey friends, I’m back. How are you guys?

I can’t believe I’m done with 25 books as of last night, an eclectic mix of historical fiction, paranormal stories, a bit of romance, book of poems and thrillers. It is about 16% of my goal of 150 books this year. At the moment, I am reading another book by Isabel Allende entitled The Japanese Lover. It was set during WW II. I’ve read about three of her books, I love her writing style. She is a Chilean-American novelist.

Yes, I am updated with what is happening around in our political midst. I don ‘t know why but the Commission on Election who is tasked to take charge and also protect our voters in the whole country is favoring one presidential candidate. So obvious. The other day along with the Phil. National Police, they started removing tarps and repainting murals done by the youth who favors VP Leni. And mind you even if they were done and posted in private places and residences. There is no existing law preventing private citizens from posting those tarps and making murals as long as they are not participants of any political party. It is the citizens’ right protected by the Constitution. COMELEC, DO YOUR JOB. The commisioners of this government body are all political appointees from Davao where duterte hails. His daughter sara (without an h) is running as VP of marcos junior.

As it is, the opponent keeps lying and he insists that he is an economist but the truth is, he failed at Oxford and only spent a year there. He was kicked out. Economics is a difficult course. Lots of Statistics. Labour Economics, International Economics, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Econometrics and Financial Analysis are just the few of the subjects you learn from the course. I should know, I majored in Economics.

I wanna say one thing: LIES NEVER TRIUMPH IN THE MIDST OF TRUTH.

Amazed, overjoyed, uplifted, inspired.

The past several days since the official start of the campaign period, I watched the sorties of VP LENI in several towns in Bicol (she is a Bicolana), Batangas, Laguna, Bataan and this morning at the QC Circle in Quezon City.

Imagine the crowd in every place that her team visits, simply amazing. Reading and blogging went to the backseat the past several days. Could not get enough of the news on VP LENI. If I were five or ten years younger and my immunity won’t be compromised, I’ll be there. I experienced throwing confettis, attending rallies and programs at Ayala Avenue when Ninoy Aquino died and we were so dismayed at the result of an election where Marcos won again. That was the start of the Edsa People Power Revolution. People though easily forgets that we ousted Marcos in 1986. Now another Marcos (his son) is seeking the presidency. We could not afford another Marcos in our midst. We could not afford a liar. They haven’t returned their multi-billion loot from the country’s coffers several years ago.

I copied some photos of the crowd at QC Circle this morning. How I wish I could share all of them with you. This is the first time in the history of Philippine elections that the voters are spending their own money to help VP LENI win.

Some are under those trees. And this is just one area of Quezon City. (Photo credit to the owner).

What a laughable scenario, if not really disgusting. In 118 years, past presidents have the highest country debt pegged at 6.1 trillion in 2016 while duterte accomplished more than double that in five years that he is in office. We now have a staggering 13.7 trillion debt under his administration according to reports. Maybe even Nate’s great grandkids in the future will still have to pay for it. If you ask me, these last five years were the worst time in our history. I wish the ICC would hurry in its investigation of the human rights violation by the present administration.

Joeam, one of my friends at Facebook asks, “What part of due process is in killing someone? Duterte started the idea that cops should kill, dela Rosa implemented it, a whole government enabled it and media reported the deaths as if, that’s the way we do it here.”

There you go, cops got a corresponding amount for every head they gun down. Gosh, it is as if one life is not important. We never heard them arrest the drug lords. As we say in Tagalog, “kapit sila sa patalim”.

Today is another pink Wednesday. Every Wednesday and Saturday, you see everything in your newsfeed in pink. As I have said before, it is all voluntary from concerned citizens all over the land, even most Filipinos living abroad who wants democracy back.

Here is my profile photo. I am voting for VP LENI ROBREDO.

Yes, today was not just a sea of pink, it was an ocean of pink.

This pink motorcade caravan has truly become a movement. Imagine, all over the country. It delivered a strong message to the powers-that-be. It is just like the Edsa people power back in 1986. This time, bikes, motor cycles, tricycles, jeepneys and cars are out on the streets of several places – towns and provinces all over. Even Boracay had their own pink morning.

I hope we could sustain this until the coming election in May. I’ve wished to upload photos but I am watching my free allowed spaces and photos eat a lot. I think next caravan is planned come November. The organizers said at least 10,000 vehicles in 50 towns and provinces participated.

I’ve finally found someone that I could order food from this Wednesday, a niece of one of my friends who has a restaurant here in our town. Delivery fee is minima. Lovely🍭🎂🍻

Have you ever experienced being in your pajamas at 12 noon because you just woke up? And the sun has not shown its face yet, it is so dark.

I’ve been distracted by the news of VP Leni last night on Facebook. I was supposed to finish reading but I kept going back to FB. She was in Mindanao yesterday (turf of duterte) particularly in Cagayan de Oro with some volunteer nurses and doctors for her VACCINE EXPRESS project. Then she went to Bukidnoon to visit those farmers she helped when she was not yet in the political scene. Considering the lowest budget allotted to the Office of the Vice-President, volunteers and donors are donating non-stop. She has focused on the Covid-19 since last year – free rides to frontliners, accommodations, medical kits, PPEs, face masks etc. She is always the first to extend help to flood victims.

Yesterday was a sea of pink again with those caravans in several towns and provinces in support of Leni. There was this very touching scene of father and daughter biking with their bikes full of pink ribbons. How lovely, they were on the road too. In Cagayan de Oro, she met Mayor Moreno who came out in the open to support her. Mayor Moreno was a former unibanker where I used to work. He was the Vice-President and Legal Counsel of BPI Capital Corp., a subsidiary of Bank of the Phillipine Islands.

Praying hard for the win. If we’ll have an honest election, she will win.

I’ll always remember this ‘the last man standing is a woman”.

Now, back to reading.
