A Cup O' Kapeng Barako

l like watching the musical and dance show, "ASAP Rocks," on TFC's, ABS/CBN.  It's the highlight of my Sunday evenings.  Lots of beautiful girls on that show.  I was a sailor in my youth.  I've been around, ika nga.  I've sailed the Seven Seas numerous times and loved all kinds of women in every ports of call, and believe me, the women of Inang Bayan are the best and the "mostest" in beauty and softness.

      Yes, I like women, all sorts of beautiful women, black, white, yellow and brown.  And I think, the show, ASAP presents some of the most gorgeous-looking women in this world.  Yes, our women are beautiful!  


     My wife also thinks that the show has several handsome men.  So, she would, at times, watch the show with me.  But only on segments when Piolo Pascual would come on.  She said Piolo is sooooo handsome.  "Ang sarap tignan," she would coo.


     Me, I only watch the beautiful women.  Lahat sila, masarap tignan.

This past Sunday, there was a special on Vilma Santos.  She was being "honored" as a talented actress and for her contributions to Philippine entertainment, and all these beautiful people, the actors and actresses and talented singers of the Motherland, were all singing and performing a show for her. 


     I was enjoying the show so much ... then a streamer was flashed below the TV screen that President Aquino would come on in a few minutes to deliver his SONA. 


     "WTF!" I screamed at the TV screen, "I don't want to listen to a ... SONATA!"  Right after I've said that, they cut off my favorite show.  I was mad as hell.


     But I did listen to for a while. 


     I heard him said something about the increase of tourists coming to visit the Philippines.  Well, I murmured to myself that probably most of these tourists are "escorted" Japanese and Australian tourists, pedophile tourists, balikbayans and returning OFWs. 


     I also heard Aquino said something about new roads that were built under his administration. Yes, that's true. There are plenty of new roads now in the Motherland, especially in Manila. The quiet street in front of our family house, in Kamias, Quezon City, is now a busy crazy road, for jeepneys and tricycles, and the noise and the pollution is unbelievable and unbearable.There's also a creek there in front of the family house.  It used to be a free-running creek, full of fish.  Now, it's stagnant, filthy black water, full of garbage that stinks to high heavens.


     After listening for a few minutes to Mr. Aquino's "SONATA," I didn't listen anymore. I got off my seat, changed the channel to CNN and listened instead to Anderson Cooper for the update on the midnight massacre inside a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado


     Another gun nut went nuts, that's for sure. I was gonna write about this, but everything that needs to be said had been said. My take on this, is: Guns in America must be regulated and military-style weapons must NOT be sold and owned by civilians. And America must BEWARE of gun nuts. Check them out before they become suicidal nuts.


     Moving on ...  The following day when I opened the Seattle Times, the newspaper where I usually get my news, there on top of page two in the "Newsline" section, I saw an effigy photo of President Aquino being burned, with a caption in bold letters that reads:


     Philippine Protest: Protesters near the legislature building Manila on Monday burn an effigy of Philippine President Benigno Aquino during a demonstration for higher wages, land reform and a halt to human-rights violations.


     My take on that?  How come we don't hear this kind of news in Philippine newspapers?  Is there some kind of censorship now in the Motherland for this kind of news?  Did the newspapers there turn tutas, too, of Aquino? Just asking.


     Then, just below this photo and caption, was a story that reads:


     "China's island maneuvers: China has approved the deployment of garrison of soldiers from the People's Liberation Army to guard disputed islands claimed by China and Vietnam in the South China Sea, the state-run, Xinhua News Agency said Sunday."


     That particular Sunday was the day when President Aquino delivered his SONA, praising his administration's accomplishments on escorted-and-pedophile tourism and about streets turning into highways, like that quiet street in my old neighborhood in Kamias. That Sunday was the day China officially declared a portion of the Motherland as theirs. And what was President Aquino doing on this particular day? Selling Penoy balut to Pinoys in his SONA.  Diosme naman! 


     Reading on this news story: "On Monday, legislators elected over the weekend to govern the 1,100 people who live on the island groups of the Spratlys, the Paracels and the Macclesfield Bank met for the first time, the latest escalation of the territorial dispute between China and its neighbors over the island groups, known in Chinese as the Xisha, Zhongsha and Nansha Islands."


     My take on this? Dear Readers, please correct me if I am wrong, but I thought the Spratlys Islands and the shoals and all, are within the geographical territory of the Philippines. So, what's the President of the Motherland going to do about this? Did he say something about this in his SONA? 


     As I said, I cut off listening to him, when TFC rudely cut off my favorite song and show, ASAP. Between ASAP Rocks and President Aquino's crooning of his SONATA, I prefer watching the rocking, leg-lifting beautiful women of ASAP.  JJ
