Pres. Rodrigo Duterte seemed to be unfazed by his eldest son's complaints against the Tourism Chief Bernadette Romulo-Puyat.

Despite the Deputy Speaker and Davao City Rep. Paolo Duterte's outrage versus Sec. Puyat, the president did not express any support on Pulong's previous claims that recently disrupted the House of the Representatives.

According to one of Duterte's alter-ego, Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles, the president continues to be “all praises” and “very warm” toward the Deparrtment of Tourism secretary during Cabinet meetings.

“The full trust and confidence of the President in Secretary Berna obviously continues. We all know that Secretary Berna has done many good things as far as tourism is concerned,” Nograles told reporters, Friday.

If there is any complaint against Puyat that might have reached Duterte's ears, Nograles admitted that he was not aware of any.

The latter also pointed out that tourism figures improved under Puyat’s leadership.

After the Deputy Speaker and Davao City Cong. Paolo Duterte shocked the public on his rift versus the Department of Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo Puyat, another person comes in to back the presidential son's claim.

This, after the Tulfo-led party list group said the Tourism Chief supposedly provided malicious information to President Rodrigo Duterte about his eldest son's activity, at least according to ACT-CIS's Cong. Eric Go Yap.

“Kung ang Deputy Speaker na anak ng Pangulo ay nagawa ninyong isumbong at batuhin ng mga maling paratang, paano na lang ang ibang mga mambabatas na walang direktang access sa Pangulo? Paano ang mga ordinaryong kawani ng pamahalaan?” Yap told Puyat.

Further, Cong. Yap said Rep. Duterte's interest over the alleged mismanagement of the Tourism Secretary was alarming.

“Nakakaalarma ang mga pahayag ng ating Deputy Speaker Paolo Duterte tungkol sa napapabalitang nakakadismayang pamamalakad ni Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo Puyat,” said Yap.

“Secretary Puyat, sana manatiling nakatapak ang mga paa mo sa lupa at buksan mo ang mga mata at tenga mo sa mga issues na may kinalaman sa iyong ahensiyang pinamumunuan,” he added.

ACT-CIS party-list group is supported by both Erwin and Raffy Tulfo who are brothers of the former Tourism Chief Wanda Tulfo-Teo.

Teo was Puyat's predecessor who was forced to resign due to the controversy she was involved in.

Hospital guard refuses entry of patient's companion

September 20, 2019

- A video of a patient's companion talking to a guard in a hospital surfaced

- The said companion was begging for the guard to let her enter the building

- What the guard did was just ridiculous

Another incident of a guard refusing a person's entry took place. And now, it's in a hospital.

It seems that cases of guards asserting their misguided authority over customers (or this time, a patient's companion), are getting rampant. 

It can be recalled that just recently, a guard also prohibited a PWD (person with disability) to enter a building because of what she wore. The poor lady had no choice but to wear shorts due to her condition. The unsympathetic guard who failed to use his common sense insisted that those who would only be allowed entry are people who are not wearing shorts. 

This time around, the same unfortunate event happened to a patient's companion. 

As shown on the clip that is circulating online, the woman who was taking the video was calmly asking the guard to let her in as she needed to bring the item she was holding inside. 

She can be heard on the video explaining that the stuff she was carrying was going to be used to the patient. 

"Sir kung ayaw nyo po akong papasukin, patawag po 'yung andun kasi sasalpak po 'to sa ano nya", she said.

To which the guard frowned and told her: "Hirap sa inyo pag nakapasok kasi, ayaw nyong lumabas."

According to the guard, the patient has a companion inside already and that there were just too many people in the building. 

As implied by the way the guard handled the situation, the latter insisted such because the people accompanying patients and flocking inside the hospital has become a norm. Hence, he suspected that the lady, who was begging to have the item delivered inside, was going to do the same. 

"Nasa emergency pa lang po!" the lady explained. 

"Kaya nga po lahat po yan isa-isa lang", the guard responded. 

"Naku ewan ko sayo, wala ngang contact dun sa loob!" the pissed off companion exclaimed.

He even told her to calm down, where she retorted: "Kalma? Emergency 'to sir! Kailangan 'to doon!"

Crying, the woman then asked him to bring the item to the person she was accompanying inside instead of letting her in since it was hard to convince the hospital's uniformed personnel. 

Because of the persistence of the said companion, the guard later allowed her to get inside but rudely told her: "Hatid mo yan sa loob, lumabas ka agad!" shouted the guard. 

"Hindi yung tatambay kayo sa loob 'dun. Naintindihan mo?" he added. 

"Anong tatambay kakapasok lang namin! Kakapasok lang namin!

It can be heard that she was crying out of anger over the authoritative guard's cruel treatment. As she was getting inside, she was ranting about how difficult to deal with the guard was.

Nagkaalaman na! Paolo Duterte slams Tourism Chief

September 19, 2019

Pulong shocked the public following the surface of his rift versus the DOT Secretary Berna Puyat.

On Thursday, the plenary deliberations on the 2020 budget of the housing agencies was interrupted when the presidential son, now Deputy Speaker in the House of Representatives, Cong. Paolo Duterte tackled the budget of the Department of Tourism (DOT).

According to the congressman, he wanted to take part in the interpolation of said department's budget last Tuesday, September 17. His reason being was "to seek clarification on certain issues and concerns regarding what is happenning now in that department under the leadership of Secretary Berna Romulo Puyat.”

“I had planned to ask some questions because it has come to my attention that there have been several complaints on the management style of Secretary Romulo Puyat in relation to the approval of contracts and projects in her department,” he continued.

Further, Cong. Duterte mentioned that prior to that, he agreed to meet with the DOT chief and House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano separately.

“However as part of the pre-plenary conference between agencies of the executive departments and the House of Representatives, our honorable speaker deemed it prudent that these issues be threshed out directly with Secretary Romulo Puyat hence following the established procedure in the House I sat down with the Speaker and Secretary Romulo Puyat to discuss my concerns regarding her department.” the presidential son detailed.

“I wanted to clarify these issues because I believe it is my right and sworn duty as a member of this esteemed chamber to ask question and thus interpolate any of my fellow legislator on the floor,” he explained.

"I would be remiss of my duty as a representative of the people of Davao City’s 1st district if I turn a deaf ear to the complaints and grievances that have reached my office regarding the Department of Tourism,” the fierce solon said.

The Davao Congressman shared how the issue is getting into his nerves, figuratively saying it affects his sleep as implied by the secretary's last name.

“After I had discussed my concerns with Secretary Puyat napupuyat na ako dito sa babae na ito in the presence of our speaker, I thought that was the last of it. Bilang paggalang sa ating speaker pumayag akong kausapin si Secretary Puyat,” he added.

“Ang buong akala ko ay maganda ang ikakabunga ng aming pag-uusap yun pala ay mauuwi lang sa sumbungan at mga maling parating laban sa akin at alam niyo na esteemeed colleagues kung kanino,” he said.

“Ito lang po Mr. Speaker ako po ay naniniwala na dapat ipabatid natin sa lahat ang mga pangyayaring ito nang sa gayon ay malaman ng ating mga kababayan ang tunay niyang karakter at pag-uugali,” Duterte said.

Writer slams Leni's daughter following her tweet on polio's resurgence

September 19, 2019
Krizette Laureta Chu and Tricia Robredo
As the paralyzing disease that is Polio makes its horrifying comeback in the Philippines, a daughter of Vice President Leni Robredo comments regarding the outbreak and throws shade at the government.

In her Twitter account, Tricia Robredo posted about the diseases that plagued the country in a span of one year.

"Measles, dengue and polio all in one year." her tweet began.

What she said next seemed to politicize the issue that has nothing to do with the government.

"When you run a nation with fear and fake news, and use health for your personal political wars. Sinong talo? 'Yung mga pinangakuan ninyo ng pagbabago." Leni's daughter continued.

On the other hand, Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Laureta Chu was quick to counter Tricia's argument, lambasting the latter for her remarks that seem to blame the Duterte government over something it has no control.

"Kasing mema at feelingera ng nanay nya. All in one year talaga? Ngayon lang nabalitaan?" said Chu.

The writer, who is also a loyalist of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte, went on and cited data in connection with the diseases that hit the country.

Chu also mentioned the Department of Health for the role it played on Dengue epidemic.

"Dengue could be managed better by DOH, but dengue is a year round disease, every year, with cyclical peaks." she said.

"Dengue, if Tricia Robredo isn’t as vapid as her mom, is no longer considered an outbreak but as a year-round disease. Many Southeast Asian countries are also grappling with the disease, and ratio of population to patient, are even more affected." the writer added.

Disgusted over Tricia's statements, Chu said the Robredo-kin is very much like her mother.

"Mana mana lang. Pareho ng nanay nya na puro comment walang sustansya." adding "Pati ba naman health issues, kasalanan ni Duterte. Buti yung meningo scare sa Mindanao hindi mo ginamit... or baka di mo alam."

Chu likewise pointed out that if there are people who are politicking the matter, it's Tricia and her mother, Leni.

"Kung meron mang namumulitika sa Health issues ng bansa, kayo yan ng bobo mong nanay. Kasi Imbes na tumulong kayo, destabilize kayo ng destabilize, blame kayo ng blame, akala nyo naman may silbi yung partido ng nanay mo. Lugar lugar gurl." Chu said.

"Takbo ka sa 2022 girl kaya pa relevant ka? Matuto ka kayang magbasa muna. Dami mong kuda girl, para namang may silbi Yang nanay mo." Chu concluded.

Read her commentary:

Kasing mema at feelingera ng nanay nya.

All in one year talaga? Ngayon lang nabalitaan?

Measles outbreak all over the world this year. Not just in the PH, even in the US. In 2017, there were 110,000 deaths worldwide over measles. The PH barely made a dent.

In 2018, the WHO has already warned—and even met—about the resurgence of polio worldwide, with countries reporting polio cases. Do you know that it only takes one polio patient to be diagnosed for it to be considered an outbreak, because of ratio and how it has been eradicated in many of the 125 countries it was endemic in?
One patient is all a country needs to have an outbreak if population is not vaccinated.

In 2018, WHO has already recorded 27 cases, but that’s up from 2017’s 22 cases—which worried health professionals greatly because that means that instead of complete eradication, which was the worldwide trend, there is “stagnation” and even increase in a disease the world considered nearly eradicated. There was an upward trend, when there should be eradication.

So in 2019, of course it’s only normal that there will be more cases, and the PH as a country with lots of OFWs and travelers is vulnerable to infection. QAQA.

In 2014, WHO already designated polio as “public health emergency of national concern.” Five years ago ha... the WHO already got alarming info that polio in some countries was already coming back. Kung hindi ka memang namumulitika lang, you would have found out by reading.

Dengue could be managed better by DOH, but dengue is a year round disease, every year, with cyclical peaks. Dengue, if Tricia Robredo isn’t as vapid as her mom, is no longer considered an outbreak but as a year-round disease. Many Southeast Asian countries are also grappling with the disease, and ratio of population to patient, are even more affected.

Mana mana lang. Pareho ng nanay nya na puro comment walang sustansya.
Pati ba naman health issues, kasalanan ni Duterte. Buti yung meningo scare sa Mindanao hindi mo ginamit... or baka di mo alam.

Kung meron mang namumulitika sa Health issues ng bansa, kayo yan ng bobo mong nanay. Kasi Imbes na tumulong kayo, destabilize kayo ng destabilize, blame kayo ng blame, akala nyo naman may silbi yung partido ng nanay mo. Lugar lugar gurl.

Takbo ka sa 2022 girl kaya pa relevant ka? Matuto ka kayang magbasa muna. Dami mong kuda girl, para namang may silbi Yang nanay mo.

San Miguel's Ramon Ang partners with Isko to launch food bank in Tondo

It appears that ManileƱos are very well taken care of by their Mayor Isko Moreno.

That seems to be the case after another program under the governance of the new Manila Mayor was launched just recently.

On Wednesday, the president of San Miguel Corp. (SMC) Ramon Ang together with Mayor Isko opened a feeding and education center in Tondo which is one of the most impoverished parts of the country's capital.

According to the president of the Philippines' largest company, he only wanted to give back to the community where he come from.

SMC, through its foundation "Better World Community", will seek to provide meals to 1 million kids in Tondo daily, Ang said.

The San Miguel group's president was named as the Philippines' 6th richest man in 2019.

"San Miguel is into food business so why don't we provide our children in Tondo a better place for them to try our products?" he added.

"At the same time, it will be an educational place for them to learn while eating," he said, emphasizing its significant role in helping the Tondo's youth to dream big and become somebody in the future.

"We can entice them to dream of becoming somebody."

The actor-turned-politician, meanwhile, said the feeding program would aid not only in feeding the student's empty stomach but also, help them with their academic performance.

"I know what it feels like to come to school starving," said Moreno who was, himself, born and raised in the slums of Tondo.

"Hindi lang ako, pati 'yung mga kaklase ko, medyo slow at hirap 'pag walang chicha," he said.

San Miguel's Ang shared that they plan to build 9 more food banks in Manila initially, particularly in the poorest of the capital's territory.

"Batang Tondo ako eH... Eh kumita na tayo ng konti so ibinabalik ko naman dito sa lugar kung san ako nanggaling which is Manila and Tondo," Ang said.

"Subukan muna natin ng 10 years at kung maganda eh di ipagpatuloy pa natin," he continued.

Richard Gomez slams netizen who accused him of being absent for his Greenland vacation

September 18, 2019
Image from Lucy Torres' Instagram
Iconic actor Richard Gomez did not mince his words when he responded to a netizen whose comment on his Instagram post caught his attention.

Gomez is now a Mayor in Ormoc City after he won in the 2016 elections.

The actor-turned-politician who rose to fame in the 80s is currently in Greenland with his wife Lucy Torres and daughter Juliana Ma. Beatrice.

As seen on his Instagram, Gomez seemed to be having a good time. Obviously, the government official is on vacation leave.

Among the series of photos he posted was a topless video of him where he pulled a stunt: he took a dip at the Arctic waters of Greenland where the cold temperature is too much to bear.

"Taking the plunge in the Arctic waters of Greenland at subzero temperature", Gomez said in his caption.

While some were amazed of what Gomez did, a certain comment of a netizen compelled the actor to give a reply that it badly deserved.

Accusing the Ormoc City Mayor of being absent while on vacation, it said “Oh? Absent na naman ang Mayor?! Seriously, why is civil service tolerating this kind of governance?”

Gomez slammed the netizen by calmly answering him/her, as if kiIIing him with kindness.

Indeed, how the 53-year-old Gomez retorted put the netizen in his place by lecturing him about the basic, but necessary, lesson he/she needed to learn.

 “Do you know if there is a word in your workplace that says ‘on leave’? Try working and get vacation leave, only then will you understand what I’m doing,” Gomez explained.
