PBB Teen Housemate Shey Photo Scandal

Pinoy Parazzi posted photos of Shey Bustamante Dubbed as the “Diskarte Bombshell ng Mindoro”. Here's an excerpt of an article posted on PinoyParazzi website: Mukhang mas enjoy sa kanyang life ang teen housemate na ito nu’ng nasa labas pa siya ng Big Brother house, huh! Bakit naman hindi, sabi nga sa profile ni Shey sa http://teens3.pinoybigbrother.com , taga-Mindoro siya, pero ‘ Paminsan minsan na lang umuwi si Shey ng probinsya, mas gusto niya nang manirahan dito sa Manila. Gamit ang kanyang ganda at kaseksihan, pinasok nito ang pagmomodelo at ito ang kanyang pinagkukunan ng pera para mapag-aral at buhayin ang sarili malayo at independently from her family.’ O, ‘di ba, exciting ang freedom ni Shey sa labas ng Bahay ni Kuya. With no parental guidance, libreng-libreng gumimik at gawin ang anumang gustong gawin ni Shey. Afterall, hindi na rin naman daw ‘teen’ itong si Shey at nasa legal age na siya para gumimik. Ang tsika, 25 years old na siya. Hmmm… kaya ba walang year an

Senator Dick Gordon on NU107 - Quotable Quotes

Here are some of Senator Dick Gordon's Quotable Quotes grabbed from NU107 Rock Ed program. You always look at history. We used to be number one. Now we're last because of ineffective leadership. Look at your son and tell yourself I'm going to vote because your future is in the balance. Vote for the candidate because he will be effective for you, because he can change your life. Cooperate with him and work with him. I trusted the youth (in Subic). I still do. I want them to learn that there is a world out there to be won. You don't inherit the world because you are young. It is a very competitive world. Always be a leader. Take extra time to be a leader. Somebody throws you mud, it will peel off by itself. It will dry up by itself. I've saved lives. I've helped people. I don't count. I send people to school. I don't remember their names. I try not to. The best thing is someone coming up to me telling me that I helped them. The ombudsman

Jejemon Definition

According to UrbanDictionary.com, Jejemon is usually seen around social networking sites such as Friendster and Multiply, jejemons are individuals with low IQs who spread around their idiocy on the web by tYpFing LyK diZS jejejeje, making all people viewing their profile raise their eyebrows out of annoyance. Normal people like you and me must take a Bachelor of Arts in Jejetyping in order to understand said individuals, as deciphering their text would cause a lot of frustration and hair pulling. Jejemons are not just confined to trying-hard Filipino gangsters and emos. A Jejemon can also include a variety of Latino-Hispanic fags who enjoy typing "jejejejeje" in a wider context, much to the disdain of their opponents in an internet MMORPG game such as Ragnarok and DOTA. Basically anyone with a low tolerance in correct punctuation, syntax and grammar. Jejemons are usually hated or hunted down by Jejebusters or the grammar nazi to eradicate their grammatical ways. On

Jovic Sael - Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Teen Clash of 2010

With Maichel and Eslove out of the running early in the season, Kuya has decided to take in another teen into his house. Tagged the “Diplomatic Son of Albay”, Jovic Sael is the latest teen housemate to enter the crazy PBB Teen Clash scene. With his dad busy as a public servant in Albay, Jovic seems intent in continuing his father’s legacy by taking up Consular Affairs. Before taking on the serious task of serving the public, Jovic takes time off to give in to his PBB dreams. He entered the Villa early in the morning, while the others were fast asleep in their comfy beds. Like Maichel, Kuya gave him his first task upon entry. He was to change clothes in the storage room, sneak in the boys’ room and climb into bed beside the boy of his choice. Ivan seemed to sense an outsider in the room and rose from bed. Fortunately, sleep took the better of him and Jovic was saved from an entire morning of crouching on the floor. Patrick got restless too, but Jovic was already snug under

Palace declares May 3 a regular holiday

President Arroyo on Wednesday declared May 3 a regular holiday--not special non-working holiday as earlier reported--in lieu of May 1, Labor Day. Executive Secretary Leandro Mendoza said May 1, which falls on a Saturday, is not a holiday. He said this declaration is based on Republic Act 9492 or the holiday economics of President Arroyo. Proclamation No. 2043, which was signed by Mendoza, said RA 9849 provides "among others, that Labor Day shall be observed on a Monday nearest May 1, which happens to be on May 3." "A longer weekend encourages families to get together and strengthen their relationship towards a more productive environment, as well as promotes domestic tourism and enables employers to plan their work schedules effectively and efficiently," the proclamation said. Labor Secretary Marianito Roque reminded employers in the private sector on holiday pay rules during a nationwide regular holiday. These are: "1. If the holiday falls on an employee's

209 Years of Aquinos in Public Service. Still there is corruption and poverty.

The Aquino family has been in public office for a total of 209 years for the last 112 years from Servillano Aquino, who was a Representative of Samar to the Malolos Congress in 1898, to Benigno Q. Aguino, Sr., who was a congressman, senator, and vice president during the Japanese occupation, to Benigno Aquino, Jr., to Corazon Aquino, Jose "Peping" Cojuangco, to Jesli A. Lapus, to Margarita "Tingting" Cojuangco, to Agapito "Butz" Aquino, to Hermie Aquino, Gilbert Teodoro, Nikki Teodoro and Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III. If this is the case, why then is there still corruption and poverty in our country? How is Tarlac? This is a fair question to ask. These figures do not include distant members of the Aquino-Cojuangco clan that have held posts outside of Tarlac.

Volunteers For A New Philippines – Volunteerism at its Best!

We are in the end game - hell week, last two minutes, the final homestretch. The competition and they who have such little faith have totally written us off.   Media spinners, opinion makers, political analysts and election experts using the surveys have already dismissed our candidate and our cause. But we are not throwing and will not throw in the towel .  Why?  Because we are in very, very familiar territory.  This is a state where we are at our element and where we begin to see things even more clearly and more constructively and begin to fight back with all we've got realizing all the more the justness of our cause until we attain victory not only for ourselves but including those who doubt us. While others cringe, bow down and give up, not us.  This is our zone where the hard and impossible way is always the best way. To classmates and contemporaries.... " Ubing ka pay laeng " ( you are still young ) they said to our face.  We met disapproval of professors when our

Mahalaga ang Boto Ko! Kay Gordon Ako!

Tandaan ngayong Mayo 10, 2010... Mahalaga ang boto mo! Nasa balota mo ang pag-asa at kinabukasan ng ating Inang Bayan! GORDON-BAYANI PLATFORM Our Platform MAKING OUR COUNTRY A BETTER PLACE Vision, Strategy and Program of Bagumbayan 2010 Introduction The supreme goal and objective of our political party is to make the Philippines a better place to live in, work in, invest in, worship in, and all those other things that citizens seek in a free and democratic society. This is the dream we all share as members of Bagumbayan. This is also the hope we hear from our people as we travel and listen to them all over our archipelago. As the first people to recover their independence after World War II in July 1946, the Philippines should have become by now a truly modern, developed and democratic nation. Instead, we are a nation in chronic crisis and decline. In 1957 the World Bank said that “The Philippines has achieved a position in the Far East second only to Japan…[and] the prospects
